Meeting of City Council
Petition Against Early Closing of Pool Room - New By-law
Introduced to Regulate City's Burial Ground
The usual meeting of the city
council was held Saturday last, the
Mayor, Aid. Leckie, Cox, Jones
and Copeland being present.
The minutes of the, last meeting
were read and adopted, and the
following accounts referred to the
finance committee to be paid if
found correct

Mr. R. H. Parkinson, who was
present, said that the Park Committee had asked him to furnish
them with a copy of the plan he
, had made some two years ago for
the laying out of the public park
and for which he had been awarded the prize in the competition the
city had held to procure a suitable
design. This he could not do, as
the plan sent in had been the
original one drawn on tracing
linen, and he had no copy on tile.
He pointed out that no survey had
been made of the roads in the
park. He kindly offered to give
his time free if the city would pay
for any necessary assistants. He
guaranteed that the cost of this
work would not exceed $25.
Mr. Parkinson- was thanked for
his offer, and a resolution passed
that he be requested to make the
new plan of the city park.
A petition was received frpm a
number of property, owners on
1 Doyle Avenue 'abd St Paul street
for the construction of a sidewalk
As the petition stated that the work
was not to be done in accordance
with the Local Improvement Act,
it was decided that the council
take no actiom
A number of property owners
on Richter and Wilson' streets attended to remind the council of a
'K^etition which'they had sent in last
year for a sidewalk to be constructed as a local improvement. The
petition was shelved at the time
owing to the fact that the number
of applications for sidewalks did
not represent a sufficient sum of
money to make it worth while to
issue debentures. The petitioners
now asked that the sidewalk be
constructed at once.
The Board of Works
structed to investigate the petition,
and if found in  order to proceed
with the construction forthwith.
Mr. R. B. Kerr attended with a
petition requesting the council to
strike out of the by-law. now under
consideration. for. the regulation _ of
^>ool rooms, and billiard halls the
clause compelling them to close at
11 o.clock each evening.
Mr. Kerr spoke at some length
the matter.    He appeared, he
council had decided that sidewalks
be constructed only under the
provisions of the Local Improvement By-law, under which the
property owners were responsible
for the cost. SinceY that time no
sidewalks had been put down
except under this by-law. He had
been given to understand by the
owners of property affected by Mr.
Kerr's proposal" that they would
not consent to such an arrangement.
He did not think, therefore/that
the council would be justified in
establishing a piecedent in the
present case by constructing the
walk out of the' city's general fund.
Mr. Kerr pointed out that Harvey
avenue was a main thoroughfare,
which should over-rule such an
objection. He suggested that the
council give his proposal their
serious consideration.
The matter was finally referred
to the Board of Works.
A new by-law, No. 88, the
"Cemetery By-law/'
introduced and read
The object of this measure is to
reduce to defipite shape the rules
governing the city's burial ground.
The cemetery has recently been
properly surveyed and a plan prepared. A copy of this plan is to
be seen at any time at the city
clerk's office. All applications for
interments are to be made to the
city clerk, who will keep, all
necessary records, and issue burial
permits, without which no interment
can take place., A caretaker is to
be j_ppl_nted by the council, whose
duty it will be to dig'all graves, cut
the grass and weeds on all unused
lots, look after the paths, and roads,
and generally keep the cemetery
in order. A scale of charges is also
fixed for the opening of graves,
The council then adjourned
until Saturday next, at 8 p.m.
was    then
a first time.
Interesting Lecture
on Chinese Empire
The Young People's Socities of
the Presbyterian, Methodist, and
Baptist churches me. together on
Monday evening last to hear a lecture by the Rev. Mr. Morgan, who
has lately returned from mission
work in China. The lecture was
illustrated by limelight views, which
included many interesting pictures
showing various phases of life in
the Celestial Empire.
Mr. Morgan had much to say cjf
the terrible famine which is devastating portions of China, the cause
of which was the sudden flooding
of the rice fields. Money was ur-
genlty needed for the relief of the
sufferers who would otherwise die
off in thousands. The lecturer estimated that $ 1.50 would keep one
man from starving until the famine
was over. The cost of living was
so low in China that the average
wage for a skilled workman was
seven cents per day, while such as
coolies received only five cents.
The highest wage paid was not
more than 25 cents.
The missionary was accompanied
by a native teacher who also addressed the meeting, and in very
good English. The teacher also
addressed his countrymen at several meetings in Chinatown both
Monday and Tuesday.
After the meeting a collection
was taken up toward the famine
relief fund amounting to $49 This
was handed tb Mr. Geo. McKenzie
who will hold it until next Tuesday in order to give those who
were not present at the meeting an
opportunity to subscribe. The
total sum will then be forwarded
to Vancouver to swell the fund
being raised there.     < ■
As a result of the consultations
of the native teacher with the local
Chinese, it seems probable that a
misssion will be started amongst
them. A

said, not on behalf of the proprietor
of the pool room,- but for the
petitioners whose names appeared
on the sheet. These included 142
voters and 112 residents of the city
who objected to the early closing
for the following reasons (given in
the petition): (a) That billiards are
a healthy and wholesome recreation
and it often happens that perfecdy
respectable and capable citizens
wish to play billiards at a later
hour than II p.m. (b) That minors
are in any case excluded from
billiard halls and pool rooms, and
grown-up persons should be left to
judge for themselves at what hours
they will play, (c) That the only
billiard room in town is very well
conducted, and no complaints
whatever have been made by any
responsible person as to the hours
at which it is kept open, (d)
That it would be a great hardship
to impose a fixed hour for closing,
because players do not like to stop
a game in the middle, rind few
games would be commenced after
ten if -the hall had to close at
Mr. Kerr also had a request to
present to the council for a sidewalk on Harvey avenue from Ellis
street to Richter street.

Bank of Commerce to

A branch of the Canadian Bank
of Commerce is to be opened in
Kelowna during the next week or
two. Premises have already been
secured next to the Royal Bank in
the store occupied by H. D. Chis-
holm, who is giving up business
with the intention of returning east.
Mr. Chas. M. Durrant, manager
of the Vancouver East End branch
of the Bank of Commerce has been
in town during the week, making
all necessary arrangements.
Band Committee to Meet
A meeting of the above organization is to be held in the Band
room above the Royal Bank on
Tuesday^ March 21 st, at 8 o'clock
prompt to which the attendance of
all Committee members and Bandsmen is strongly urged. A special
invitation is given to all interested
citizens to attend this meeting. As
there is a lot of important work to
be done and matters.to be discussed, a good attendance is desired.
We feel sure it is not the desire of
any of our loyal citizens to think
of such a thing as being without a
band for the coming season. As
this is an open - meeting any
suggestions from those present will
be welcomed as regards the future
of our City Band.
A pleasant evening was spent at
the Social given by the Baptist
Church Choir on Tuesday evening
last. A good audience assembled
and showed to the full extent their-
appreciation of the musical items
and readings rendered. The
guessing competition proved very
interesting. The Rev. D. J. Welsh
spoke on the work which lies
before a choir, and thanked those
present for their presence and
help. Refreshments were served
by the choir members.
The Board of Trade held their
usual monthly meeting last night,
the new president, Mr. J. W. Jones,
In his opening remarks Mr. Jones
said he was deeply sensible of the
honour conferred upon him by his
election to the position of president.
The present year promised to be a
most important one in the history
of the city, and the Board must
keep in touch with all lines of
development. The publicity committee had not been able to do
much in th« way of advertising last
year, owing to lack of funds. There
was now no advertising material
on hand, and the publicity committee would have tb take matters
in hand at once. He referred to
the railway development which
was going on at the lower end of
the valley, and suggested that
Kelowna endeavour, as Peachland
and other places were doing to
get the Kettle Valley company tp
lower their grade so as to enter the
town. They should also try to
induce the Canadian Northern to
biing in their line without delay.
He hoped the members would
attend the meetings and do all in
their power to help things along.
A batch of communications from
various sources was read, including
letters from the Natural Resources
Security. Co., concerning the $500
which they had 'donated as a.
special prize to the National Apple
Show. As the letters were not
-satisfactory the secretary was instructed to communicate further
with them.
The president brought up again
the matter of extending Richter
street south. He suggested thai a
committee be appointed to Wait on
the road superintendent and bring
the need before him. He pointed
out that the government appropriation for roads in the Kelowna
district was. much larger than
previously, and he thought that all
roads leading into the city ought
to be kept in good shape.
It was decided by motion that
Mr. W. C. Crawford and the
president wait on Mr. Hamilton
Lang at once.
Mr. S. T. Elliott urged that the
city be asked to do something'
towards the widening of Pendozi
street, which was far too. narrow
for the amount of traffic which
passed over it.
Mr. R. B. Kerr asked the

through the city. It was the connecting link between two sections
of the town and the nearest way
to the schools and churches. The
absence of a sidewalk for just one
block made it a most uncomfortable
street to walk on especially in
muddy weather.
Mr. F. R. E. DeHart said that
although the city now constructed
sidewalks only under the Local
Improvement By-law, he thought
an exception might be made in
this case. The block in question
was not built on, nor likely to be
for years, and therefore no sidewalk would be made unless the
council n.ade it out of the general
A motion was carried that the
council be asked to provide the
It was also resolved that the city
be asked to extend Elliott avenue
through to the city limits.
The night of meeting of the
board was changed to the third
Tuesday in the month, the meetings to be held in the secretary's
office in the Keller block.
A long discussion then ensued
as to the steps to be taken by the
publicity committee in advertising
the city. The amount of funds
available would of necessity determine the extent to which the Board
could go, but it was felt that owing
to the small amount of advertising
hitherto done in comparison with

The census of the British Empire
is taken once every ten years, and
on the same date. The 1901 census showed the population of the
empire to. be 396,294,152, a substantial growth from 1891. By no
means all the people have been included in any of the four decennial
censuses, for it has been found almost impossible to convince everyone that the enumeration is not the
prelude to a new tax.. In India the
country is particularly difficult, for
there, questions of caste mysteriously obtrude. On the occasion
of the last census it was said that
hundreds of thousands of Mussulmans and Hindus hid themselves
in the forest all night rather than
be counted, preferring to face the
terrors of the jungle rather than the
questioning of a government clerk.
Many of the frightened natives
even killed their dogs so that their
barking should not reveal the
whereabouts of their cowering

Serious Floods in
Southern California
Over one thousand acres of rich
bottom land has been washed into
the sea by the raging Santa Maria
River, in the northern part of
Santa Barbara County, California.
The river is: still rising, as a result
of continued storm* in -.7 the
mountains. The loss to live stock
has been heavy.
The total damage due to the
floods in various parts of Southern
California is said to be over five
million dollars. In the Santa Maria
district over 10Q0 acres have been
devastated of crops. The 70,000
gallon reservoir of the Union Oil
Company is a complete wreck.
Los Angeles and vicinity have
suffered to the extent of $250,000.
The loss to alfalfa and garden truck
alone is placed at $100,000.
other towns a special effort should
be made this year to get out some
good literature.
On the motion of Mr. S. T. Elliott it was decided to ask the council to donate $750 towards their*
advertising campaign.
Before adjournment Mr. Kerr
spoke at some length on the advisability of drawing the attention
of the government to the necessity
for more advertising of British Columbia in the United States. He
pointed out that the majority of
those who were settling in the North
west were Americans who as a rule
had more money than any other
class of people, and he did not
see why this province should not
get some of these settlers. A resolution was carried embodying Mr.
Kerr's suggestions.

Onondaga   Runner   Has   Never   Been
Surpassed  by Any   Indian.
Since the advent of Tom Longboat
Canada has produced many Indian
runners, but thi-ra * : only one Longboat. -
Big Chief was the king-pin of them
all, but up to date none, of them hae
uhown anything that is likely to eh&k«
the Onondaga off his "pedestal as th«
greatett Indian runner of the age,
says Lou E. Marsh, who was one of
the> discoverers of the Indian.   7'
Since 1907 and J908, when Longboat
wai in the zenith.of his running career, eeveral hundred re J man have
pounded the reads in short pants and
jerseys, and while some of them have'
turned out to be runners of the first
class none of them has . approached
Longboat's records over the same
course. Take Levi Jamieson and Jim-
mie George, the two best Indian runners of the-year, for instance.
Jimmie George won the Hamilton
Herald race in 1909 and 1910 and the
Ward Marathon in 1910, Lut in every
instance his time was four or Ave
ffiiautes outside of Longboat's bast
tfaaa ov»r th* sum* course. That
ttMHU that had Longboat been in
eith«T event he would huve led George
tome'by !_>.'.. a half a mile to    mile.
Levi. Jamieson sprang into fame
when he won the Foster Marathon at
A* a matter of fact, the most dangerous rival Tom Longboat ever had
for his honors was Acoose. the Western Indian, 'i. e fc___lteaux;Indian beat,
Longboat la.i winter at Toronto,
;*rton the latter was choked up with
'-Veold.'and away out of shape. Acoose
was credited with.world's record time
•for fifteen miles, but the records were
discredited, but just the same the
Western aborigine is some runner. He
Would have been a top notches, too,
had anybody with common sens* taken hold of. him. The Indian had bad
feet, and those behind him knew no'
more about attending to his feet than
a baby hippopotamus does about the
nebular hypothesis,. . In New - York,
with .his feet rifrped all to pieces
Acoose at sixteen miles, tore off-the
finest and longest sustained sprint I
ever say in a long distance race. He
sprinted for eight laps and gained,
three-quarters of a lap ohi-euch men
aa Ljungstroai, the Swede, and Mea-r
do.ws, the Canuck. Then his bad feet
■killed him off. Acoose had the style,
build, and courage of a, world-beater,
and a good handler would have worked his feet into shape.
Jamieson is the most likely-looking
of the 1910 brigade., of redskin run-
.hers.. George is the ..better distance
man, but Jumieson hai the style and
courage. George is a'shuffler — an
easy-gaited -distance' man—while Jamieson .'. will improve. .Jamieson will
..be a grand 5 and.lO.miler next year.:
..Joe Keeper,: a Winnipeg Indian, ran
third-in the five-mile race at the Canadian championships at Montreal and
may improve, but he .is no Longboat.
Allen Hawk, the .Christian .Island
Indian, might do something with, expert handling, but none of the other
Indians around Ontario have shown
much this summer. -J .y.
In The- Halifax Herald and Mail
race of ten miles Thanksgiving Day,
eightlndjans started and the red men-
ran one., two.'and four. The only
one of any. real.; class in the bunch
was the winner, a Micmac Indian
from Prince Edward Island, who ran
the ten miles in 57,20.
Six Indians started in The Montreal
Herald race,. but a white man led
them all home. '.
Yes, there are lots of Indian long
"istance'.runners but only one Tom
Longboat, and just7while we are at
it, let me sny-JLongbbcit is in good

which he is not likely to forget for a

that he decided to investigate the

approaching the objects of its visit.
Now was his glorious opportunity tb
deal out swift and awuu justice to
this exasperating nocturnal intruder.
He took infallible aim and fired—so
did the skuiik. But lovely horrors!
whf-n th*> uii?1.hnd rolled away, ten
high-bred hens lay dead, four others,
including tne husband, lay mortally
wounded, while that awful wall-eyed
skunk expediously took its departure
umid a reporcu.ssivo atmosphere that
would stagger n hero, After considering the matter very attentively for
several days our.previously highly-respected citizen and neighbor has decided to discontinue poultry raising
and offers for sale on terms suitable

Editor Orchard City Record,
Deair Sir: '■'.''
The question; whether, women
should be enfranchised is certainly
attracting much attention at the
present time. Nevertheless it is
hot generally understood" that the
legal injustices - inflicted upon
women, and the evils.which follow,
result from women having been
for so long without a voice in the
making of the laws.
We may smile at the child-like
simplicity of the old-fashioned man
who remarks:' "let every woman
have not a vote, but a voter," or
." / wouldn't like my wife to vote " ;
but it is surely a duty to make some
clear statement! of facts.
One of the worst laws made for
women without their consent is
that a' wife has no right to her own
children. The husband is the
parent by law; and can leave the
control pf his children by will to
some outsider, so that their mother
can have nothing to do with them.
A man can will all his property
away from his wife and  children.
A;  recent Tattempt. to  amend this
law,  though  brought  forward by
the Attorney-General, a few weeks
ago iii  the . legislature,  failed  because the needs of nonvoters attract

The divorce laws are unequal

Women workers are shut out
from professions and occupations
in a way which would be impossible if their interests were protected by the vote. They are
denied " equal pay for equal work"
with men, even in work directly
controlled by government. But in
Australia this principle was at once
recognized and carried out, as soon
as the women were enfranchised.
The justice of granting votes to
women has been recognized by
Australia (for all elections in all
the States, and for the Federal
Parliament) ; by New Zealand ;-by
five American States (Wyoming,
Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Washington) ; by Finland and Norway ;
and Denmark will most likely, carry
it out this year. In Washington,
bordering on our own country,
women's suffrage was carried last
November by 52,000 to 29^00 of
the men voters. All countries
which have tried it pronounce it a
Nearly all literary men and
women and artistic and humane
people are earnest supporters of
women's suffrage. It is deeply felt
that the ideal of citizenship can
only be raised by entrusting it to
both sexes to; yyork for it in
common. y
It is for these reasons' that some
of us are forming a society in
Kelowna to promote the enfranchisement of women.

opportunity were afforded in the

For every foot of timber that has
been" cut in-Canada by lumbermen
at least seven feet have been destroyed by fire.
This startling statement is made
in a bulletin of the Forestry Branch
of the Department of the Interior,
lately issued (Bnlletin No. 9, 'Forest Fires of 1909").
The author, Mr. H
one of the assistant
Forest Reserves,  is
trained  forester, who _ has   given
much attention to this subject. His
figuies have   been based  on  the
latest obtainable data, including a
careful estimate of the stand  of
timber originally standing in  the
forests of Canada and that still remaining; the difference  between
these two, less the amount estimated to have been cut by lumbermen
represents the  amount  destroyed
by fire,
Even this estimate of the ratio of
timber burned to timber cut is not
as large as some given elsewhere.
Senator W. C. Edwards, the present president of the Canadian Forestry Association, and one of the
best known and most successful
lumbermen of the Ottawa valley,
is on record as saying that in that
valley ten times as much timber
has been destroyed by fire as has
been cut by lumbermen.
The past summer has brought
very prominently to public notice
the forest fire problem, especially
in regard to the fires in the states
of Montana and Idaho, and more
recently in northern Minnesota,
where so many towns were destroyed.
The Canadian Forestry Association has for years been endeavoring to arouse public attention in
regard to these fires, and of late
the work of the Commission of
Conservation has been largely directed in the same direction.
