Meeting of City Council
Pound-Keeper Wants Rise—No Fire Escape in Gity School-
" Single Tax" Broached.
A meeting of the city council
was held last Saturday. There
was a full attendance, the mayor
The minutes of last meeting
were read and adopted.
The following letter was read
from Cal. Blackwood, the city
To   His  Worship    the    Mayor    and
Aldermen of the City of Kelowna.
Gentlemen: —
I beg to inform you that owing to
cost of food and shelter I cannot afford
to feed impounded horses, mules and
cattle for fifty (50) cents per day, and
hereby request you to raise this fee to
one (I) dollar per day. Should you
not see fit to make (his amendment to
the pound by-law, I will ask you to
accept my resignation as pound-keeper,
the same to. take effect on February
1st next.
Yours very truly,
-Pound Keeper.
The council, not being able
agree to the proposed  increase
pay, a motion was passed accepting Mr. Blackwood's resignation.
7 There was another matter, Mayor
Sutherland said, in connection with
the pound which ought to De
adjusted. Some time ago a bunch
of cattle on the ,jrange north of
town, belonging to Geo. Munford
and John* Morrison, had approached near the city limits. Some of
them might have stepped over the
line. They were impounded pnd
Jthe owners calle<Cupoh to pay^the
fees.) He (the MaJsg^ {houp^tthifc
was something of a hardship, and
straining the by-law a little:, too
farl He suggested that the city refund their share of the fees.
The following motion was passed :
" That the city's 'share of pound
fees on bunch of cattle belonging
to Messrs. Geo. Munford and John
Morrison be refunded by the city
to the gentlemen named. This to
be done or« receipt of amount from
A little discussion here arose as
to the provincial regulations with
respect to range cattle, and the
desirability of having them enforced. Aid. Dalgleish said that
contrary to the law there were
several bulls running at large, and
he knew one young fellow who
had had his horse badly torn by
onei which had facedjiim,,  . .
While on the auEject of anii
Aid. Cox said he understood that
during the week a horse had been
lying on one of the streets in a
dying condition for over sixteen
. Mayor Sutherland said the fault
lay with those who had seen
the horse, and neglected to notify
the police. As soon as the constable
heard of the animal being in that
condition he went out at once and
shot it. There was a little delay in
removing the carcase, owing to the
scavenger not being available, but
so far as the authorities were concerned they had acted promptly.
By-law No. 84, for the borrowing
of money for current expenses received a third reading.
Aid. Leckie said he had learnt
that night that there was no fire
escape in the new school. In view
of accidents which had happened
in other places he thought the
matter should be taken up.
Aid. Dalgleish said he thought a
fire escape should certainly be
provided.    \ „
Mayor Sutherland was not sure
whether provision of fire escapes
in schools was not covered by the
provincial act At any rate it could
be embodied in the new city bylaw now being prepared for the
regulation bf fire limits and
Aid. Leckie thought they had
better not wait for the by-law, but
get an escape provided at once.
The question was eventually
referred to the city solicitor.
Aid. Cox announced that he had
found another family who were in
great need, with the man actually
on his- dying bed. People in the
country had been helping them a
little, and he had taken upon himself to order a few things on behalf

the manner in
being shipped
some time past cattle
short in the district,
butchers had been shipping in
meat to supply the demand. - In
other places the regulations enforced the covering of meat with
cloth, etc.. as a protection against
dust and germs. He thought the
same ought to apply here. At
present it was handled in a very
careless way, being put into the
boat without covering of any
Aid. Dalgleish said it was simply
a matter of neglecUon the part of
the butchers, and would no doubt

Aid. Dalgleish asked if it would
not be advisable for the city clerk
to write to the Minister of Public
Works with respect to the opening
of Richter street right through to
Pendozi street.
It was mentioned that as the city
was supposed to undertake half the
cost it might prove an expensive
The mayor asked if Aid. Dalgleish
wbiild recommend going to work
at once on the gravelling of
Richter street.
" As soon as we can get teams,"
replied Aid. Dalgleish. If they
waited until spring the roads might
get too soft for hauling.
The following motion was passed :
" That the Board of .Works be
authorized to gravel Richter street
from Bernard avenue to Sutherland
Mayor'fSutherland brought up
the question of assessment. There
was no reason why "they should
not start early this year with the
work.fjlt was the intention to adopt
the last year's assessment without
change in valuation. Property,
however, had been changing hands
and there would be the new
owners to get, also several new
subdivisions to assess. The clerk
was anxious to adopt a convenient
card system for recording lot
holders," so as to be convenient for
instant reference, and save • much
searching through the books.
Aid. Copeland broached the
subject of the single lax, by enquiring if it would not be well to
tax land and not improvements.
^ The question, however, was not
discussed at any length. The mayor
pointed out that at present improvements were taxed at half
their value. When it came to
putting through the by-law fixing
the rate of taxation they could include improvements or not as they
wished. They would have to be
assessed, however, whether any
levy was made or not.-
The following motion was passed : " That J. L. Doyle be appointed assessor at a salary of $75 per
month, and be instructed to commence work at once."
Annual   Meeting
Hospital Society
Directors Congratulated upon
Good Work.
The annual meeting of the
Kelowna Hospital Society was held
last Friday in Raymer's small hall.
There seems to be a regrettable
lack of interest on the part of the
public in the working of the
Hospital, judging from the difficulty
experienced in getting together the
necessary quorum of twenty subscribers for the transaction of
business. When this was at last
accomplished proceedings were
The president, Mr. F. M. Buck-
land, took the chaifc. The minutes
of the last annual meeting were
first read and adopted, after which
the directors' report was given by
the president.
In presenting the report the
president said he was-pleased to
be able to say, initially, that the
past year, 1910, had] been a most
successful one for the Hospital,
marred only by the great loss sustained by the death of the late
President, who, by his zeal for the
welfare of the Hospital and the
good and wise counsel he gave at
all times, had endeared his memory
to those who ihad the honour of
being associated with him oh the
Board of Directors.
At the commencement of the
year the directors found that the
Hospital was indebted to various
creditors in the sum of about
•$1,000, with only $33 in hand to
meet same; they therefore decided?
to borrow from the bank the
necessary amount to discharge
these liabilities and all the outstanding accounts were paid off.
They also adopted the system of
asking for tenders for supplies,
which had proved most satisfactory
both to to the Hospital and tradesmen, the former receiving the
benefit of a reduction on the
goods supplied, and the latter payment of their accounts at the end
of the month. This system had
been in force since March 1 st with
regard to all supplies except
coal, reducing the cost of maintenance from $ 1,600 in 1909 to $ 1,484
Another improvement, at the
small cost of $14.50, was the matting platted on the stairs, which reduced sound thereon to a minimum.
A further improvement in the
heating apparatus had been effected
at a cost of $ 110. This warmed
the dining and sitting rooms down
During the past few weeks a
patient had been refused admission
to the Hospital, which had occasioned a considerable amount of
criticism in the district. " Your
Directors," said the president,
" have carefully enquired . into the
circumstances and are satisfied that
such a mistake will not occur again
and greatly regret that it should
have happened in this instance."
All that was owing by the
Hospital at the present time was a
note at the bank for $800, which
carried interest at the rate of 8
per cent.
For the particulars of the financial
standing ot the Hospital, he referred those present to the balance
sheet, which would be read by the
On behalf of the directors and
himself, he begged to express
thanks to those who had subscribed
during the past year and especially
to the two Ladies' Aids, and to
those who had taken so much
trouble in getting up entertainments
etc., in outlying .places.
Mr. Hensman, acting as secretary
in the absence of Mr. G. A. Fisher,
then read the treasurer's financial
statement. The receipts and disbursements for the year 1910 were
as follows:
Cash in Bank $   33.83

"Jessie James" the Missouri outlaw, who should have reproduced
his hold-up games at the Opera
House last Saturday, was himself
held up—by a 'snowstorm on the
line—and consequently the performance did not take place. The
company however has now arrived
and will produce the play on Saturday next Feb, 4,
During the past year, there were
159 patients admitted to the
Hospital, with charges amounting
to $4,733. whilst in 1909, 154
patients obtained admission, the
charges being $4,560.50—totalling
2,638 days. This showed an increase of 5 patients, and about
$173 charges.
The rise in salaries, shown on
the statement, was accounted for
aa follows: That of the Secretary
had been raised from $20 to $40
per .month, in return for this he
now looked after the collections,
subscriptions, etc., thus relieving
the Board of Directors of a considerable amount of work. In the
summer they were unable to obtain
a third nurse locally, when one
was required, consequently one
had to be engaged from Pentictbn
at $60 per month for two months—
but for this fact it would have been
ossible to show a saving of about
The staff was now composed of:
Nurse Mitchell at $50 per month
Nurse Thompson, 35   "
Nurse Vigilius,       30   "       "
Cook Miss Riddell 30   "-     "
Janitor Richards,   50   "       "
The improvements effected
during the year had not been very
extensive, the principal being the
laying in of the City water systeri;
at a coat of $109, the Hospital
guaranteeing the City $50 per
annum, until other connections
were made along the pipe line
extending from Mr. Stirling's house
to the Hospital. When these were
made the cost of water to the
Hospital would be reduced accordingly.
The kindness of Mr. Millie, who
had installed a second telephone
downstairs, free of cost, had been
much appreciated, as this necessary
addition naturally saved the nursing staff a great deal of extra stair

An interesting debate and musical evening evening was spent in
the Benvoulin Presbyterian Church
on the 24th of Jan., in connection
with the Benvoulin Literary Club.
The club which has been meeting
under the management of Mr. Le
Roy Dolsen at the homes of the
members, decided upon a more
ambitious effort and arranged a
public debate on the subject:
"Resolved that man exerts more
influence through literature than
by personal contact." The chair
was occupied by Rev. A. W". K.
The leader for the affirmative
was Miss Bowen, supported by
Mr. Harold Renwick and Mr. Aik-
man. Mr. Gordon Scott took
charge of the negative with Miss
Renwick and Mr. W. Patterson as
supporters. Each side was well
presented, the papers being of a
high order and reflected great
credit on the community. The
judges were, the Revs. J.W. Davidson and Vance, and Mr. Moore.
While the judges were considering
their decision, Mrs. J. N.Thompson
and Mr. Geo. McKenzie sang solos
which received enthusiastic, encores.
Mrs. F. Armstrong gave a reading
in her usual pleasing manner.
The decision was given in favor
of the affirmative, the judges complimenting the speakers on both
sides for the way in which thtfy
had treated the .subject. A collection amounting to $10 was taken
towards the improvement of the
Sunday School library. An enjoyable evening closed with the singing of the National Anthem.
The annual meeting of the Benvoulin Presbyterian church was
held Tuesday evening.* The reports presented by the different
societies were of a very gratifying
nature showing progress during
the last year- The .finances- were
were also in a satisfactory condition
the old debt having been removed
and the mortgage: burned. The
congregation further increased the
the stipend of the minister, the
Rev. A. W. K. Herdman to whom
a highly appreciative address was
presented by Mr. T. Renwick on
behalf of the congregation, on the
occasion of his having completed
five years ministry of the united
charge of Benvoulin and Kelowna.
A handsome presentation was also
made to Mr. and Mrs Herdman of
an oak and silver dish, suitably en
graved, and < en aining $50 in gold
At the close 5$ .he meeting refresh
ments were ttf red by the ladies.
General Vestry Meeting
St.  Michael and All Angels'
The annual vestry meeting of St.
Michael and All Angels' Church
was held on Monday, Jan. 30th.
The rector presided. After prayer
and the reading of the minutes of
the previous meeting, the rector
reviewed the work of the parish
during the past year.
In the course of his address he
referred specially to the marked
increase in membership; the improved attendance at all the services ; and the interest taken by
the congregation in parish affairs.
In financial matteis the open offertories and annualsubscriptions were
in excess of any previous year.
The electric light had been installed
in the church through the generosity of a number of the parishioners. The Sunday School and
Children's Service were well attended, and it was encouraging to note
that the parents took an active
interest in the preparation ofthe
little one's lessons.
The choir was commended for
the attention given to the preparation of the Sunday  music under
the   able   leadership    of   Mr.   F.
Graham  Tollit,. the   recently   appointed organist.     The Women's .
Auxiliary  and  the Chancel Guild ~
were well praised for  their good'
work for the various interests they
are pledged to support.   At Christmas the choir and Chancel Guild
had   united  in   presenting  to the
rector  and  Mrs. Greene valuable
presents as a token of their esteem.
The Women's Auxiliary, as a New-
Year's gift to the rector, had had
the telephone installed in the rec-A.^

The balance sheet showed assets
amounting to $14,259.29, with
liabilities, $1,160.31, leaving a
balance in favour of the Society
of $13,098.98.
The report of the auditor, Mr.
Wm. Hill, stated that all the accounts were correct and the books
carefully kept.
In moving the adoption ofthe
reports, Mr. J. F. Burne said the
Hospital had done considerably
better during 1910 than the
previous year. It wasg in a very
good state financially, the assets
being largely in excess of the
liabilities. The directors had endeavoured to the best of their
ability to run the institution to the
satisfaction of the people, in spite
of one or two little differences such
as always will occur. He hoped
the funds of the Hospital would
increase sufficiently to enable them
to provide the isolated ward for
tuberculosis, which was necessary
before they could claim the per

The_parishioriers resident at Ok-   .
anagan Mission had worked hard
during the year to raise funds for \
the building of a small church in,
their midst. In this they  had been /
completely successful.  A beautiful >
little   church,   capable  of   seating
from seventy-five to one hundred
people, had been built from designs
by Mr. W. A. Peters, who was also
the architect of the new parish
church. "The haif acre of iandoiT-
which  the  church  stood was the
gift of Mr. J. Baillie. Arrangements

The meeting was in full sympathy with the rector's words of
regret, at the loss the parish had
sustained through the'deaths of
Mrs. F. A. Taylor and Mr. W. C.
Cameron, people's warden. A

remarks was passed as follows
on the motion of Mr. Gorrie, seconded by Mr. Carruthers: "That

This would make a considerable
difference, and would put 'the
Hospital on a thoroughly good
basis. It was a difficult matter to
make a hospital pay. It was
always more or less a drag on the
community, and it was right that
it should be. The public should
pay for the indigent and sick
amongst them. They hoped soon
to put the Hospital on such a basis
that they could bear the burden
without much trouble. The community was a thriving one, and the
Hospital should thrive too.
Tlie flection of directors for the
ensuing year was then taken up.
Before proceeding with the
election Mr. Burne said hs would
like to point out that it was necessary according to by-law'that the
secretary should be one of. the
directors. Mr. G. A. Fisher had
proved a most satisfactory secretary
and he would like to see Tiis name
added to the board, so that he
could do his work better. He
would also like to see placed upon
the minutes some record of appreciation cf their late president,
iMr. W. C. Cameron. Mr. Cameron
had been a most efficient president,
and had taken the greatest interest
in the work of the Hospital.
A motion to that effect was
accordingly passed.
Reference was made to the
absence of Mr. T. W. Stirling who
had done so much for ihe Hospital
in the past.
In reply to a que 8 ion as to the
method of electing directors Mr.
Burne said that all who had during
the year subscribed $5 or over to
the funds of the Hospital had a
right to vote in the election of
directors for the ensuing year. It
was their wish that the board should
contain representatives from all
classes and' denominator ns, so that
no one interest could predominate.

What Has Dandruff Got To
Do With Baldness ?
You see the statement every dav
that the one cause of baldness is dandruff.    But Is it?
True, dandruff often precedes the
departure  of the hair.
it is equally true that you know
men with a shock of hair you can
hardly pull a comb through, who have
curried around a dandruff laden collar
as lone as you have known them;
You 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 good many of us, '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.
Those who use Nyal's Hirsutone find
it the most satisfactory hair healer
and hair dressing they have ever used.
It does stop the hair from falling
It will   also   stop   dandruff.

was a dissimilarity of disposition
Spoom.r was bright, impulsive, during

lly fly into a passion aud was ipiicli to
do penance for his acts while under
its influence. Gibson was of a very
equable disposition. His .uniabiliiy
was never seriously interfered with
and seldom ruffled. These eompli
nenlary dispositions welded ilieir
hearts wheu they were children, and
the affection born of their tender years
was never permanently broken.
Both  about the same time secured
situations    in     different     mercantile
houses.    Spooner was very  ijuick  to
learn and endowed with great  natural
energy.   Tlie consequence was that he
advanced  rapidly.    Gibson  was slow

to make them understand that he dis

Gibson would say:
"Be patient, Bob. Your natural
ability will win in tbe end. whereas
if you try to go too fast you may gel
a backset that you will be years in
making up."
•'I kuow you're right, my boy." Bob
would reply. "You're always righi
about everything, but it's mighty hard
to see things going wrong whpir a
suggestion from me would right it and
I not make the suggestion."
"How do you know tbey would ap
predate It? And wouldn't they he
liable to tell you to keep your place
and mind your own business. If you
were in their place would you listen
to suggestions from them?'-
"I listen to suggestions from tbem!
Not much!"
"All things eome to those who wait."
Bob Spooner could not help feeling
himself a better man than bis friend
in everything except patience, gentleness, endurance.    He did not expect
Lars to make much headway in the
world;   indeed,  he   was  ambitious  to
make  a  success  for himself that  he
might share it wltb tbe man be loved.
It was not long before Spooner broke
away from bis employers and set up
for himself.    He had no capital, but
had  a   capacity   for  inspiring  confidence.    He succeeded from the start.
Both young men married.    Spooner
wedded a girl wbo saw in bim a means
to acquire what was the wish of her
life—social prominence.   Gibson married a girl who loved money for money's sake rather than what she could
acquire with It.    Mrs. Spooner spent
all her husband's income.    Mrs. Gibson   exerted   herself  tb  prevent   her
husband from giving away all bis family did not positively require.    From
the time of their marriage their wives
stepped into their shoes and enacted
the balance of tbelr lives for tbem.
No. not all; at tbe end they acted for
It was their desire that their wives
should feel as warm a friendship for
each other as was theirs. Spooner, wltb
his natural enthusiasm, expected this;
Gibson, witb a certain longbeadedness
or horse sense, knew that It could not
be. There was nothing to bring the
two women together—Indeed, there
was tbnt to drive tbem apart. Each
wife was Jealous of the Influence exerted by her husband's friend. "It Is
singular," Mrs. Spooner would say,
"how you can see so much In that dull
fellow. You are more capable In every
way." And Mrs. Gibson would say,
"Your friend Spooner looks down on
you; be considers himself vastly your
Spooner made money so fast thatthe
very rapidity of his accumulations ao-
tolerated his accumulative desires. Just
as a man owning an automobile that
will do forty miles an hour desires one
that will do sixty. One morning the
newspapers announced the failure of
a large and long established banking
house. It was the signal gun for the
opening of a commercial panic. The
house of Spooner & Co. went down in
the crush, nnd the head of the Arm was
obliged to take the l>«.eflt of the bankruptcy law.     t
For two or three years values
shrank Gibson, wbo bad saved—or,
rather, whose wife had saved—considerable money, saw an opportunity to
buy property cheap and made Investment.) which when the financial pendulum swung to the other extreme
made him rich. Meanwhile Spooner
was freeing himself from the wreck of
Ids Im.sIup. . and when be had done ho
found himself more than forty years
old, without the physical energy of
youth with w..l"h to make a new be*
tiitttliig nnd without n dollar of cap
His old friend called on him and
"Bob, I t/uD let you have $20,0(0 on
a nominal interesi and without, secu
rity. 1 would double it: but. you see,
my wife and children have their claim
on me, aud 1 don t feel that I have tbe
right to do more " ^
Spooner grasped Uis friend's hand,
but said nothing for a time, then told
Gibson be would consider the matter.
When Mrs. ypooner heard of the offer
she advised her husband to accept it,
but showed such antagonism to tbe
donor that Spooner resolved to decline
the loan. Indeed, the sum was not
large enough to put bim ou his feet as
he wished, and lie preferred to manipulate certain banks wllh which he had
done business to raise twenty times
the amount. lie failed In this and was
obliged to take a subordinate position
in the employ of another.
Gibson was now very prosperous.
He had never made money fast except during tbe recovery from the
panic, when the values of the property he had bought expanded as rap-
Idly as they bad contracted. His wife
set up a carriage and two or three
automobiles. The couple purchased
the Spooner home that Spooner might
redeem it when again able to do so.
But as time passed it did not appear
that Spooner would ever be able to do
so. Had it not beeu for the influence
of Gibson's wife he would have yielded to bis affection for his old friend
and offered to deed the place back to
And now came one of those combi
nations of circumstances calculated to
drive apart instead of weld together
those who love. Robert Spooner as a
3'oung man had desired lo accumulate
partly tbat he might help the friend
whom he looked upon as his inferior.
He now saw that inferior in a position to help him. Had he been uninfluenced be might have stood the
strain occasioned by jealousy. But
Mrs. Spooner. disappointed in not being able to retain the grip she had secured on society, smarting at seeing
the man whose influence over her
husband she had disliked successful
while Spoouer was a failure, began a
series of innuendoes against Gibson.
These had no effect at first, but, being
followed up pertinaciously, at last infected the subject on whom she worked.
Finally Spooner. seeing a rare opportunity, made n desperate effort to
interest certain men with capital, succeeded aud witb one of these brilliant
strokes 'for which he had formerly
been remarkable made a fortune. As
soon as Gibson heard of tbe fact be
sent a note to his friend offering to
sell him his former home at tbe price
he had paid for It, wbicb wan about
half its present valuation. But the
poison was in Spooner's blood, and he
replied curtly that the place would
not now be commensurate with his
altered fortunes.
From that time there was a continued effort on the part of the Spooners
to flaunt their position In the face of
the Gibsons-that is, on the part of
Mrs. Spooner. What her husband did
was inspired by her. But this Gibson
didn't know, and be felt his old
friend's antagonism keenly. The
Spooners grew richer, and the richer
they grew the more they snubbed the
Gibsons. Mrs. Spooner's chief desire
seemed to be to make them understand that while they bad thousands
the Spooners bad millions and that
there was as wide a difference in tbe
social position of the two families as
there was In their financial position.
And so it en me that the two friends
drifted apart. Both retired from business, and both were "old men. Neither
had any use for the money he had
accumulated beyond a bare living.
Whatever enjoyment there was ln
wealth was derived by their families.
old men were companionable with no
one. One evening while Mrs. Spooner
was entertaining a house full of guests
her husband., letting himself out
through a back door, walked Into the
street. He felt the desolation of a
homeless man.
Passing a cafe that bad been In the
same location for half a century, where
he and Gibson bad ln their youth met
for a bite, a glass of beer and to talk
over their affairs, he was seised with
a melancholy desire to go In aud sit ln
the old familiar seat As be' approached tbe stall he found It occupied
by an old man Ho was about to pass
on when he heard his name spoken.
Turning, be saw the veteran In the
booth looking nt him Intently.
Tbey sat side by side, as they had
done when boys Just entering upon
their careers, remaining for a time
band In hand like two lovers. The past
was not referred to.
"Lars," sn Id Spooner, "here we are
in the place from which we started,
successful tn the end and unable to
enjoy the results of our success. The
only marked effect it bas bad has been
to separate us. What use was there ln
the struggle after all?"
"Wltho.il the Interest we took ln it
we would have always been what we
are today-men without life. Our children are enjoying It, or at least they
think tbey are, but I doubt if their
lives have the iutensity in them that
ours bave bad. We love our wives and
them, but there Is a different affection
which they cannot supply-it is that
which we feel for each other."
The place had run down since they
were there as boys, but it was all they
required. They met often during the
remainder of tbelr lives In that old
booth, before which a curtain could be
drawn to shut them from the view of
others, One night a waiter, entering to
tell, thorn that I ho closing hour had
come, found thorn sitting hand ia

Great Increase of Fruit
According to Provincial fruit inspector Cunningham, notwithstanding (he increasing production of
fruit in British Columbia during the
past year, the importation of fruit
during 1910 has been practically
double that' during the year previous. The total importation of
fruit noted by his office, which included only those varities also
grown here and those likely to be
effected with disease, amounted to
172,370 boxes.
Mr. Cunningham deplored the
fact that more ofthe fruit produced
in British Columbia was not -sold
in provincial markets instead of
being shipped to the prairie and
foreign centres. While the British
Columbia growers were sending
commercial fruit out of the province the American ranchers were
bringing theirs in and taking away
a large amount of cash.

wniicu oorcswas oraugnr up
fore Congress last Thursday,
der the treaty as arranged by
commissioners a reciprocal list, including wheat and other grains,
dairy prodnce, fresh fruits, vegetables, fish, eggs, poultry, cattle,
sheep and other live animals, is
slated for free interchange. By the
terms of the agreement cotton
seed oil is placed on the free list
by Canada, and it is presumed that
other cotton seed products will also
enter Canada duty free. In return
the United States allows the free
entry of lumber. Printing paper
is'made free when Canada or the
Canadian provinces remove the
restrictions on the export of pulp
wood. Raw materials, such as
mica, gypsunvlare placed on the
list of articles to be freely interchanged. Mutually reduced and
identical rates are to be placed on
secondary food:; products such 'as
fresh meats, canned goods, bacon,
hams, lard, flour and cereals, as
well as on partly manufactured
food stuff8.
B. C. Industries Hit
Geo. W. Cowan, M P. For Vancouver, summarized the new treaty
arrangements as being a staggering
if not a khockout blow to Brittsh
Columbia's most important industries. Under the treaty our home
market for fruit and vegetables will
be taken from us and no substitute
given. Martin Burrell, member
for Yale-Cariboo, said that "The
abolition of the duties on fruit and
vegetables comes as an unexpected, disastrous and unjustifiable
blow to the rapidly growing fruit
industry of British Columbia. It
means rnination to an industry that
promised to become one of the
most important in the Pacific Province."      -

In a report just issued in Washington the fact is, pointed out that
the breeding of deer is a more remunerative pursuit than raising
cattle. A number of persons are
already engaged in the business,
and they are meeting' with success.
The meat finds a ready market,
the skins and hair are both highly
profitable products and the horn
is a ready article for commerce,
the main portions are used for .knife

The fact .that there are large areas
of British Columbia where deer
will flourish.'and that can be utilized for no other purpose, in every
probability the trade that is now
developing in the great republie
will be started here. The provincial authorities have on several
occasions been approached by
persons who desired to breed deer
for commercial purposes, but hitherto the matter has not been taken
up in a practicle way.
The Washington document
draws attention to the very
important market that Sheffield,
Eng., affords for deer horn. At one
time as much aa five thousand tons
was consumed annually, most of
which came from Ceylon and
India.    .

Dear Sir:
The public pres. of this province
without distinction of party has
always given (his department very
efficient assistance ; indeed, I have
always held that without the cooperation of the press we could
never have enforced our horticultural regulations, which are proving of such immense advantage to
the fruit-growing industry of British Columbia, i would, therefore,
take the liberty of requesting you
to grant me the use of your valuable columns to direct the attention of all importers of nursery
stock to section 4 of the Horticultural regulations, which provides
that certified invoices of all shipments of nursery stock; trees and
plantf, must be furnished lo the
inspector of fruit pests, at Vancouver, at the time when such shipment:, are delivered for inspection.
1 lis reason for thia is that when
a cos: of goods arrives,   we   know

invoice what it should contain, and arc prepared to check
the contents over with the invoice.
This greatly expedites the business
of inspection and enables U3 to
deal promptly with ail importations.
It is clearly in the interests oi
the importers that we should be
able to detect any mistake that
may have been made in shipping
the goods. All this was carefully
considered when the horticultural
rules were adopted, but unfortunately many of the importers neglect to comply with this regulation.
I would therefoic urge that a
genera! observance of thia rule br

Our staff will be double this
year, so that whatever delays may
have occured in the past may be
avoided in future, if the '.importers
comply with the regulation above
referred to.
Thinking you for your assistance
I am,
Yours faithfully,    .

SON; Ltd
The annual meeting of
Boaid of Trade was held
Tuesday evening. In the absence
of the president, Mr. P. DuMoulin,
Mr. J. W. Jones was elected to the
A long list of correspondence
was read by the secretary. Applications were received from Mr.
A. L. Meugens and Mr. J. L. Mac-
ready for the position of paid
secretary to the board.
A letter was read from Mr. Maxwell Smith, manager of the National
Apple Show, with reference to the
$500 special prize won by Kelowna
on the District Fruit Exhibit. Mr.
Smith disclaimed any intention on
the part of the management of
giving more than $500 as the first
An account of $9 for twelve
photos of the District Exhibit was
ordered paid, and the photos distributed amongst the real estate
turns of the town.
S-jnie discussion took place on
M-. Maxwell Smith's letter. Mr.
R. B. Kerr held the view that it
was hopeless to press the claim,
as so far as he could discover, there
•vas nothing in the reports and announcements of the show which
committed management to giving
the $500 donated by the Natural
Recourses Security Co. as an extra
prize in addition to the $500 previously announced in the prize list.
Mr. G. CjRose dissented. He
had heard Mr. Smith's speech after
the show and was quite sure that
eveiy one in the audience had
understood that the total won by
the exhibit was $1,000. He ventured to think that if the show
had not resulted in a deficit the
$500 would have been paid. It
wa3 simply a piece of bad faith on
the part of the management.
Mr. J. W. Jones said that the
newspapers all over the province
in reporting the show understood
that the $500 was additional.
Mr. G. Rowcliffe suggested that it
it might be well to write the Natural Resources Security Co. as to
their intentions in donating the
A motion to that effect waa
passed, several of the members
feeling that the matter should be
thoroughly enquired into before
being dropped.
The financial report was read as
follows :
Due from member* $4|| JO
Balance in hand  362 35
Headquarters for the Economical Buyer
Total Assets $773 85
To which must be added the
value of land owned by the Board,
and various medals, etc.

•Mr. McTavish referred to the
large amount of arrears due from
members. Many of the earlier
members refused to pay up, saying they only joined to get the
Board started. He estimated that
of the $411.50 arrears given, only
$175 was collectable. This would
reduce the assets to a little over
$530. A sum of $46.50 was to be
added, since received from Mr. B.
McDonald, being surplus from the
Apple Show.
Mr. J. W. Jones read the repoit
of the publicity committee. The
committee started the year with a
balance of $428.70 and had expended during the year $577.
There had been no special grant
to the committee for advertising,
consequently tHey had to draw on
the Board for $148.30.
Mr. W. E. Adams drew the attention of the Board to an advertisc-
; ment which had appeared- in the
.Farmers'    Advocate,     in     which
Messrs.  Maurer  and   Wildp were
'advertising    fruit    land    in    the
j Kootenay  at $25   per  acre.     An.
j illustration was given described as
: a " three-year-old Kootenay  orch-
: ard."   This was in reality a photograph  taken  some  years   ago of
• the K.L.O. orchard, in which a
figure in a buggy was plainly,
recognizable as Mr. F. A. Taylor I
It was decided to write the Farmers'
j Advocate pointing out the mistake.
j    As there was only a bare quorum
at the meeting it was decided to
■defer the election of officers to the
next  meeting.     A   motion    was
• passed that in the meantime the
\executive  go into the question of
paying a secretary, and providing
an   office,  and   report  at the next
, meeting. Several important matters
were left over for the new officers
to take up.
The secretary was instructed to
write to the Minister of Public
Works respecting the extension of
Richter street to connect with   the
