By-law - Salaried Building Inspector.
A meeting of the city council
was held Saturday last, his Worship
the Mayor, Alderman Leckie, Cox,
Copeland, Dalgleish and Jones
being present.
The minutes of the previous
meeting were read and confirmed.
A letter was read from the
Kelowna Sawmill Co. requesting
the council to provide a place for
storing sawdust, as the property
previously used for this purpose
would not be available this year.
The letter was refered to the Light
and Water Committee.
The following accounts were referred  to  the Finance Committee
to be paid if found correct:

Aid. Copeland reported that the
Fire Protection Committee had
purchased from W. B. M. Calder
the necessary supplies for the Fire
Brigade, in accordance with the
auufbrity given them by the resolution passed at the kat meeting of
the council.
Aid. Dalgleish, on behalf of the
Board of Works, reported that the
gravelling of Richter street would
be completed within a few days.
He suggested that authority be
,^iven to gravel Water street north
of Bernard avenue.
It was mentioned that a portion
of the street had been given a
coating of gravel last year, but as
there was now a great deal of
traffic over it, and the foundation
was bad, it would be necessary .to
make the road serviceable.
The council, after some discussion, sanctoned the work.

which is to regulate poolrooms
and billiard halls waa read a
second tiroes .__■____=__. _ ____.__,;__________•__. _.-
An amendment was proposed
and carried that clause 4, which
stipulates that the view into the
interior of the pool room shall not
be obstructed by "blinds, paint,
screens or other devises," be struck
By-law No. 87, to regulate the
erection of buildings in the city,
was then introduced.
Mayor Sutherland mentioned
that the by-law was not yet complete, there being some details
which could be filled in at a later
The By-law divides the city into
three portions, the limits of which
are hot yet definitely defined. In
the central area all buildings must
be of solid brick, stone, cement or
a combination of these three
materials, and the roofs covered
with non-inflammable materials
approved by the building inspector.
In the second section the (ire-
proof structures are limited to
stores, factories, hotels, restaurants,
boarding-houses and livery stables,
and a minimum valus fixed for all
buildings within the area. .
The council is given the power
to appoint a competent and
practical inspector of buildings and
fire-limits, who will be a salaried
official. His duty will be to issue
permits for the erection, enlarging
or alteration of buildings in the city
in accordance with the provisions
of the by-law, and to keep records
of construction, sanitary appliances,
heating apparatus, electric apparatus, elevators, fire escapes, etc.
Provisions are made in the bylaw for the safe construction of

Famine, and Plague
Ravaging China
Famine and plague are sweeping over China. The known deaths
number 30,000, and according to
the official statistics the death rate
averages 200 daily. But officials
have limited knowledge of conditions in the interior or are not permitting the facts to be known. It
is impossible to estimate the number of deaths that have resulted
from lack of food.
Dr. Samuel Cochrane, an American who is engaged in the work
of relief writes, "One million people will die before the first crop is
harvested. This will be scanty,
because the people have not the
strength to till the soil; few animals remain for ploughing."
The Chinese for political reasons
are directing their efforts to control
the plague, chiefly along the railways and frontiers.
Since the recent Russian request
for permission to cross the border
and quarantine Chinese towns
along the Amur, China has been
attempting to check the plague
along the frontier, but the Russian
legation says this has been done
inefficiently, because there are no
doctors there familiar with modern
methods of sanitation.
. Although the central government
has issued explicit orders both
supplies and funds are lacking.
Japanese and Russians have offered assistance, but only in a few
places have these offers been accepted, the Chinese, not liking to
receive favors from foreigners
whose political motives they mistrust.
Owing to the political question
involved and the presence of foreigners along the railways, the
plague in Manchuria is receiving
greater attention than .the famine,
but tHe death iFate from.thefamine
is many times greater than from
the plague.
The famine is the result of the
distinction of the crops by sixteen
inches of-rain in two days last August in a district where the people
ordinarily lead a hand-to-mouth
existence. As soon as the first
pangs of hunger were felt, they left
their homes, but many of them
were unable to get, beyond the
borders of the devastation. They
returned and took up the death
struggle beside their homesteads.
It is said by many of the medical
authorities that such an epidemic
as the present which is entirely
pneumonic, has not visited the
world since the middle ages.
American Fruitgrowers Organize
Central Agency   Formed   to
Handle Entire Western Crop
By establishing the centra;! selling
agency for the fruit crop of all the
north-western states, representatives of fruitgrowers'
Oregon, Washington,
Montana last Friday,
greatest organization
that has ever been formed.
Not only was the selling agency
formed, and rules laid for its operation, but plans were made for
the organization of district associations and their relations with the
growers' associations.
Resolutious adopted by the convention provided that the central
exchange will have the selling of
all fruit or products controlled by
the district associations. It will
establish a sales system covering
all markets where it is practical to
sell the products of its members,
establish such rules and regulations
as are necessary for the proper caring for and marketing of products
also such rules as are necessary for
the maintaining of uniform grades
and packs and for the placing of
the products of its members on the
market in the best and most saleable condition.
Ic will maintain an efficient system of market and -crop reports
and do such advertising as is found
necessary for the carrying of an
aggressive campaign for the expansion of the market.

calling of the sixty-second Congress
in extra session, fixing April 4 as

Ellison District Notes
The closing concert of the-Literary Society held in the school
house on Feb. 28th was well attended, and although on entering
the hall the temperature seemed to
indicate a frost,' the audience
gradually got warmed up as the
programme proceeded. English,
Scotch and Irish melodies were
rendered. Mr. Hayman's ..West
Country songs were enjoyable, as
also were "The Admiral's Broom"
and "The King's Champion" by
Mr. Whittaker. Some amusement
was caused by the shadow play,
while Mr. H. Schwab was preparing
for his character song "Poor John"
but his appearance produced still
more more hilarity. Mr. F. Mawhinney was in good voice and very
appropiately sang "My Ain Folk"
when all his. family were on the
platform with him. Piano solos
were given by Misses Cottingham,
M. Hereron, W. Lang, W. Homuth
and Mr. G. Weedon, and Mr. H.
Allen enthused the audience with
his violin selections}. The evening's
enjoyment _was. contributed to by
the following vocalists, Mrs. A.
Wilcocks, Miss L. McGarrity, T.
Smith and M. Hereron. The proceeds, in aid of the piano fund,
amounted to $16.25. Light refreshments were served and the
gathering dispersed after singing,
"God Save the King."
Two alarms of fire have occurred
during the past week. The first
call the brigade boys received
proved to be only a slight matter—
a chimney in Fullers' house catching fire last Thursday ninght. The
trouble was over almost as soon as
the boys arrived on the scene.
The second fire was more serious,
and but for the promptness of the
brigade in getting to work, might
have had quite a disastrous ending.
Soon after 1 1 o'clock on' Tuesday
night, smoke and flame* were seen
issuing from a stable behind J. N.
Cameron's blacksmith shop. The
alarm was at once given, and being
but a stone's throw from the Fire
Hall, a stream of water was soon
pouring on to the blaze. Fortunately
there were no horses in the qtable
at the time, but something over a
tori of loose hay had just been
stored there, and this, as usual,
gave considerable trouble, by
breaking out in several places.
Water, however, was poured on it
until thoroughly soaked, and. all
danger of a further outbreak past.
The damage was hot very heavy,
but had the flames reached Mr.
Cameron's shop a serious loss
would have resulted, tbat building
being well stocked with a large
number of buggies and vehicles of
all kinds.
The cause of the fire is not
known, but it is conjectured that
some one was in the stable enjoying
a cheap night's lodging, and
possibly a quiet smoke.
E. C. Scott & Co. have been in
receipt of several large shipments
of goods during the past few days,
which makes their stock of kitchen
hardware and household utensils
complete and comprehensive.
Every available corner of the store
and out-buildings is now packed
with the big stock. Every conceivable contrivance for the assistance of the busy housewife, and a
a good many things the busy hus1-
band will appreciate too. Crockery, pans, dishes, glass-ware, table
cutlery—but call and see for yourself.
The Young People's societies of
the different churches met in the
Presbyterian Sunday School Hall
on Monday evening last at a social
gathering. Songs were rendered
by Mrs. Brooke, Mr. J. H. Davies,
Mr. Geo. McKenzie, and recitations
by Miss Fannie Copeland and Miss
Harding. Judge Swanson, who
was present, held the" attention of
the large gathering by a most
hearty speech. A quartette sung
by Mesrrs. McKenzie, Davies, Hill,
MacFarlane was encored, as was a
violin solo by Miss M. Laidlaw.

There wa« a tinge of autumn In the
air. although the calendar still showed
Its September page. Here ajid there
on the hillside!, n tree flamed out, herald of Jack Frost.. The bay wrinkled
crisply Into wl_lt<» capped waves, and
over all was the odor of ripe grapes,

. Phoebe Allen leaned over the gate
aud drank ln the sweetness of the air
and looked at the blue und wblte water and saw the flaming tree.
•'Smells frosty," she sniffed delicately. "I'm always mighty glad when
winter comes around. It's the coziest
tlmo of theu-year. Wish 1 knew which
way the wind was blowing."
Her pleasant face wrinkled In a
frown as she tried to peer around the
corner of Captain Amos Dodge's new
house. All her life she had been wont
to see the weather vane on the peak
of Channing's barn, and now that Cap-

She had even approached the doughty
captain and laid her complaint before
blifi. "I never can tell what the
weather's going to be without seeing
thaf vane." she said.
"I'll put one up on my cupola*"
promised tlie captain affably.
•'I. won't look at It—probably If 11 not

Fboelx.' peevishly, -and so she went
Captain Amos and Phoebe had
known each other all their lives; they
li.id gone to school together, and they
had attended merrymakings as they
grew older. Phoebe had danced holes
in her slippers under the skillful guidance of A mos Dodge, and Amos had
been caught by his father while concocting a love letter to Phoebe, and
an Incipient romance had been destroyed.
Amos bad run away from his motherless borne, and Phoebe had forgotten
all a'l.out him until years afterward,
when bis father was dead and buried,
he came home a childless widower and
built a house on the brow of tho hill
beyond Phoebe's solitary cottage.
There had been no sentiment about
their meeting. Their first words had
been a disagreement'about the weather v.l no. nud neither had recovered*
Now- Phnebo crnued her soft rouhd
thront In a vain endeavor to learn the
direction of the wind. .._, _,_._'.___     „,_■
A barefoot boy whistled past^ a fish-
fug rod over Ills shoulder and a can of
bait dangling from his hand. '
"Where you going, Hennle?" asked
M!s3 Phoebe.
"Afler blues-they're running down
In the channel," returned the boy.
"AVhlcli way's the wind?" asked
Phoi-b.v >
"I duuiiM." said Hennle stupidly.-
"Don't iniike uo difference about wind.

there was exciting sport In trie Harbor's mouth.
Such a clever little, sailor woman us
I'hoebe 'Allen'.;found nn riltlii uity m
getting ber boat.'Into-i in* rigin position, dropping" her aucU'— overboard
and preparing for sport. { '■•■. -'■ A
' The lone tisherniuu proved; to be her
especial abhorrence. Captain Amos, and
and as his broad back was mrued to
her and. his great Happing bi\i quite
covered the back of bis head be was
recognizable only by his size and the
dainty lines of bis new boat.
One, two, three, into the boat they
flopped, little silver beauties. Phoebe's cheeks grew pink witb excitement
as she pulled them in. 'Enough for her
own supper at Uist and then supplemented by others there were enough
for gifts to various Ashless neighbors.
It so happened that Captain Amos
was fishing with a rod. nud so was
Phoebe Alien It Is an awkward way
to catch Hsb from a small boat, but
Phoebe loved to see the silver booty
come swinging through the air into
ber craft, and It was also Captain
Amos' favorite method.
At last Phoebe impaled ber last bit
Qf bait and swung tbe line overboard.
It Jerked forward, and she felt the
weight-of a captured fish. .As sha
pulled in the pole flew up. and tbe
baitless hook sailed over ber bead and
caught neatly in the slack of Captain
Amos' shirt between his broad shoulders.   It caught and stayed there.
Almost in the same instant Captain
Amos lost his bait in the same way,
and his pole performed the Ha,nie upward leap, his line flew over, and the
hook imbedded itself In the woolly Intricacies of Phoebe's knitted jacket.
Then Captain Amos, feeling tbe
pointy of the hook in his tender flesh,
yelled murderously.
"Woman!" be threatened, turning
his bead as far around as pain-would
"Man!'" snapped back Miss Phoebe,
straining at her pole and against the
captain's hook.
"What in tarnation"— sputtered
Amos, 'groaning. "Woman, you have
killed me."
"Keep still, do." said Phoebe Impatiently. "You've gone and caught
yourself In my hook. It was the last
one I had. If you'd reach around you
might get It out."
"Get out  nothing!    Do you   understand  the English  language?"  asked
. Captain Amos, with deadly calm.
"Of course I do."
-< "Then listen. Your hook Is caught
in my skin—s-k-i-n—skin, and '1'iii
bleeding to death. If you'll have the.
goodness to look around and see what
damage you've done," suggested tbo
captain savagely.
"Perhaps 'you'll look around arid see
what you've done," said Phoeb^ crossly; '   "
She craned her neck and looked
around at the captain's back, which
the point of her fish hook barely priek-
' ed. At the same moment Captain
Amos peered around to see bis own
hook caught In his neighbor's Jacket.
Something In the ridiculous situation
broke the icy crust of,years of separation; It recalled another day wheu. aa
. children, they had fished for minnows
ln the mlllpond and. sitting together in
the old green boat that bad beluiiireil
to Phoebe's father, tbey had hooked
each other quite as neatly as tbey had
done today.
"Amos Dodge, you little ninny!"
cried Phoebe in the same tensing
words she bad used on that former occasion thirty -five years ago.
"Girls don't know how to fish," retorted Amos as he bad done In tbat
other day.
"Dqes-tbat book hurt, Amos?" asked
Phoebe. '
"Not much." admitted the captain,
twisting bis neck around to look into
Phoebe's sunbonnet. "Tour boat's
drifting a little, Phoebe. Don't get any
farther away from me," he said in a
queer voice.
"I;won|t," said Phoebe gently. "Just
■ wait a minute, Amos, while I slip off
this Jacket—there! Now I'm free of
your-hook I'll-help you. Walt, now,
till.I get my boat over."
By dint of careful maneuvering
Phoebe ran her boat near enough to
the other to lean over and touch the
hook. It fell out at her touch.
"I was afraid the point might bave
caught, but it's all right, captaln"-
"Amos," saId the captain briskly. "I
wasn't any captain wben I knew you.'*
"Amos," repealed Phoebe obediently, "I hope it didn't hurt you."
"Not a mite, Phoebe. To tell tho
truth"— Uo reddened -.and looked
doubtfully at his old sweetheart
"Tell It," commanded Phoebe ln be*
old Imperious way.
"I caught you on purpose," confessed the captain.    ''
"Why?" blushed Phoebe. "WbatJ
"Just to get acquainted again. Youi
have beeu as stiff as a ramrod even
since I came borne again and"—
"Tide's turning," said Pboeme from
tbe depths of her pink sunbonnet
"I've got luucb to eat"
"So've 1," returned the captain
promptly. "Lot's co ashore and have
a picnic." . . *» '
"Let's," said I'hoebe.
That night when they trudged up
tho hjl swinging their strings of silvery fish srfnebody saw tbem and
said: /
"Well. If Phoebe Allen ain't caught
Captalu Amos at last I"
Somebody else saw them and said,
"Land sakes, if, Captain Amos ain't
caught Phoebe Allen, After alll"
And just then Captain Amos was
saying. "When yoii get over to the
big house with me. Phoebe, tbere
won't be anything to shut off your
view of tbe weather vane."
"I gnoss tin re won't be anything to
obstruct my happiness either." sighed
Phoebe contentedly. __  .

Mr. C. S. Stevens, who has been
in charge of the Dominion Government Telegraphs and Telophones
in the interior of B. C. during the
past seven years, will sever in connection with the Department, on
May I st, next. During his super-
intendency Mr. Stevens has extended and developed the government
system from 67 miles of line to 543
miles, from 10 agencies to 54 offices
and from a total revenue of
$50 a month to one of $1,800 per
month. Local exchanges of the
Government tetephones have been
installed at Hedley, Merritt and
Princetown during this time with
over 100 subscribers in all. Of all
the government lines in Canada,
this is the only one which yields
an increase of revenue over expenditure. When Mr. Stevens accepted the position seven years ago it
was on conditions stipulated by
him that he work on part salary
only and that he be allowed to
continue his private business until
one or both became too large to be
well conducted together. , That
time has now come and Mr. Stevens retires to devote the-whole of
his time to his private interests as

Montreal, March o.—Business
men, manufacturers and others in
Montreal are very anxious to obtain
the views of the large banking
houses on the reciprocity question.
Sir Edmond Walker, President of
the Bank of Commerce has already
come out strongly against the proposed agreement, it is true. But
that was in Toronto, and . Sir
Edmond did not give any specific
reasons for the stand he has taken.
Sir Edward Clouston, President of
the Bank of Montreal, has now
been asked, not in the interests
of any one particular branch of
trade or commerce, but in the interests of the Dominion of Canada
as a whole, to either make a statement for publication, oi to address
a gathering called tor the purpose.
He has not yet consented to do
either, but he will likely be persuaded to speak at a special meeting of the Board of Trade which
will be called for the eighth of
Strange as it may seem, reciprocity talk has not disturbed the financial worH one way or the other
that is although there is a great
deal of comment and chatter,
money is still moving along the
regular channels, and. stocks are
soaring or falling as the case may
be in much the sarpe way as they
would on a quiet summer's day.
Last week, it is true, was rather
dark in some, quarters, but that
was owing rather to. affairs in the
United States than to reciprocity
agitation. Reciprocity is a freak.
Fruit lands in British Golurnbia,
which people ot that province say
will be ruined if the pact goes
through, are selling beautifully.
Sawer-Massey stock, the new
company which is • turning out
farming implements and which has
just been placed on the Toronto
exchange, has jumped about ten
points and at one stage of the
game waS"as high as thirty-three.
And there was much doubt in the
minds of the farming implement
men as to reciprocity.
There was another big meeting
at the Board of Trade this week to
discuss reciprocity. The same old
arguments and the same old speakers were to the fore, and, altliQugh,
the atmosphere was distinctly of a
threadbare second - hand store
variety, it was proven once again
that Montreal business interests
intend to fight to the death against
the proposed agreement. Peter
Laing, the packer, was almost the
only speaker who turned ' on a
fresh breezy argument. He told of
what the packing industry might
be led to expect, and quoted Pat
Burns, the Calgary Cattle King, tp
show that thewest, in this respect at
least agrees with the sentiments qf
the east.
The rather sudden resignation of
Mr. H, E. Vautelet, the engineer
from the Qyebec Bridge Commission has given rise to all sorts of
rumors in regard to the future plan
of construction of that famous and
ill omened structure. It will be
recalled that Hugh Lumsden, chief
engineer for the Government o.f th,e
Transcontinental, resignee. under
somewhat similar circumstances.
After the resignations had been
made public the r=ame excuse was
offered to the people from the
floor of the House of Commons
concerning both men. The' minister of railways said that Lumsden
had resigned on account of ill
health and overwork. The Minister of Public Works announced
the same thing in regard to Mr.
Vautelet. Both are walking around
as chipper as may be. Mr. Vaut;e-
let will say nothing, but it is safe
to predict that the last has not been
heard of. the matter, and there ajre
going to be fireworks of' some description before the plans of the'
bridge have actually been decided
upon.  .

arranged with the Canadian government.
The Canadian government has
received an invitation from the
British government to send
parliamentary delegation to
coronation.1 This will be drawn
from both sides of the House, and
the result may be that the parliamentary session will be curtailed.
The present indications are, that
owing to the reciprocity debate the
session will be prolonged.
The announcen.ent that a miraculous spring has been discovered
bubbling forth from.- under the
altar of the Church of St. Clotilde
Montreal.-brought crowds fromfar
and near on a visit io the. church
An altar, on which a new. statue of
the Blessed .Virgin had recently
been placed, suddenly required the
attentionof a plumber. ^Investigation showed the spring of pure
water bubbling from the earth. A
similar occurrence was reported
some time ago from a church of
the same name in Leu, France. It
is said that since the discovery of
the spring two people, who were
suffering from different ailments,
were cured instantly by the use of
the water.
