Aid. Dalgleish reported that he
had been approached by owners
. of property in the "Rowcliffe and
Elliott sub-divisions with a request
to draw the council's attention to
the necessity for opening and
grading Elliott and Sutherland
avenues. The matter was referred
to the Board of Works for.'in-
: vestigation, with instructions to
report to the council at the next
Aid. Dalgleish also suggested
that the council take steps to purchase a nuisance ground. He
pointed out that sooner or later
the city would have to buy land
for the purpose, as they could not
always rely on.being able to lease
a suitable place. As the value of
land in the neighborhood was
increasing rapidly, it might be a
saving to the ratepayers if the
purchase wese, -made without
further delay.
The mayor stated that the lease
on the present ground did " not
expire before April 30th of next
The .Health Committee were instructed  to  take the  matter into
. consideration.
Aid. Copeland reported having
received a new plan of the Public

The Building By-law, No. 87, and
the Cemetery By-law, No. 88, were

that not only those who intend to
play but also all interested in the
game will attend. Delegates will
also be appointed at the meeting
to attend the meeting -of the new
league which includes Yale-Cariboo, Kootenay and Okanagan.
Competition for the new and valuable Shaw cup, will be keen, and
it ia hoped that Kelowna will endeavour to maintain the high position already achieved.

They will be at the Kelowna Opera
House on Saturday, March 25th.
Interest in the question of a
reciprocal tariff with the United
States is as strong in Kelowna as in
other places, judging from the
large audience present in the
Oper^. House last Friday to hear a
public debate on this latest problem of the day.
Mr. R. B. Kerr and Alderman D-
Leckie  championed  the  cause of
reciprocity, while Mayor Husband,
of  Vernon,   and   Mr. A. R.   Lord,
B. A.,  principal  of   the   Kelowna
Public School, took the opposition.
Mr. Kerr was the first speaker.
He said one of the strongest arguments of the  opponents  of reciprocity  was  that  they  had belter
" leave well enough alone."   They
were so well satisfied with things
as they were that they Would discourage any  attempt at   improvement.     If  these   people   thought
that  things  in  this  country were
going so well as that they were very
easily   pleased.     The   growth   of
Canada,  he   declared,   had   been
miserably slow in comparison with
the United States.    Although the
two countries had practically begun
together,  the States  had   now   a
population of ninety-two  millions,
while Canada could only boast of
some  seven  or eight millions.)  It
was not that the States had more
natural resources than Canada. We
had more good soil in: this country,
more open prairie, and   a  climate
far more   favourable   for   wheat
fgrowing.    -Our   waterways,   too,
were superior to those of the States
and in many other  ways  we  had
advantages over them.    Taking- all
things together  we  should make
quite  as  much progress.   Instead
of that settlement in Canada had
crept along at a rate hardly to be
compared  with  what   the   States
had done.- Why was it that Canada
had  developed so. much slower?
It was betause prices for produce
were so much  lower in Canada
than they were in the States.    He
instanced the town of Portal, which
was cut through by the boundary
line between the two countries. At
the Canadian  side  of  the   town
wheat sold for 73 cents per bushel,
and  on  the American side for 86
cents.    Barley in Canada sold for
35 cents; in America for 63 cents,
or nearly double.   This  was the
explanation    of  'the   92 millions
population  in  the  States   and    7
millions    in    Canada!       Settlers
would not come where they could
not  get  a  decent. price  for their
produce.   They preferred to pay
horses 7,* 6.00 j higher prices for land in the States
where they could get good prices
for their  produce,  than  come to
Canada, where prices were low. In
consequence America's population
had increased  enormously,  while
Canada was practically where she
started.     People   naturally    went
where prices were best, and this
had hitherto been the States.
Ihe need of some' such tariff
arrangement had been felt for
years by statesmen of both parties.
When the Conservatives went out
of oflice the last thing they did was
to negotiate for reciprocity. This
new treaty sweeps away all duty
so far as food stuffs are concerned
and'achieves what has been the]
ambition of every Canadian statesman for years. It was perfectfy
sufe to,go through in Canada,
though there was some risk that
the American senate might throw
it out.
The arguments in the States
against the agreement were just
the same as those in Canada. The
fruit-growers of Washington were
afraid they would be driven out
of their markets by B. C. fruit. They
said their fruit could not stand the
competition of Canadian fruit.
They told- how Kelowna 'had
cleared up all the prizes at the
principal shows for several  years
fiast, and of the wonderful car of
onathans which had been pronounced to be the finest car of
apples in the world. They painted
a picture of trains of cars, just as

from Kelowna to
Chicago* and New York to oust
them from their markets, They
were making full use of all these
facts to k\|[ reciprocity, but he
hoped they would not do so. (applause.) 7
Mayor Husband  next  took , up
the debate.    He first expressed his
pleasure  at  appearing   before   a
Kelowna audience, on the invitation
of Mayor Sutherland.    What concerned   us   most   nearly   in   the
Okanagan in connection  with the
present agitation was the removal
of the duty from fruit.    Before thia
treaty appeared every fruitgrower
was of opinion that it would be a
bad thing to have the duty taken
off, but wben the treaty appeared
many   began   to make    apologies
for  if    They   said  it would not
only do no harm, but it would be
an   advantage    to    the    industry.
What were the facts in regard to
the fruit industry ?    Apples so far
as the valley was concerned was a
staple crop.    There was a duty on
apples from the States of  13c. per
box.      American    growers    were]
paying this duty on shipments to
the Northwest,  and still selling at
the same price as ourselves.    What
would happen  if  this  duty were
taken  off ?    They would   be able
to ship at 13c. per box less, and to
compete we should  have  to  take
13c. off our   own.    On   a  carload
this would mean $68.   There was
no great advantage about that   If
we had all natural advantages of
soil  and   climate,  we  should not
quietly surrender them. We should
show the government we were not
to be ignored.
MrAKerr had depicted train
loads of our apples going to
capture American markets. But
how could we do this ? Our
supplies were not large enough to
capture American markets. We
had no distributing agencies in the
States. We might have some day
when the industry developed, but
at present we had not got to that.
It would be wiser to develope our
own markets. And supposing we
did for a few years find a market
in the States, what security had we
that it would stay open to us. Our
prosperity would be dependent
upon the; goodwill of the States.
Suppose as in 1866, their markets
were suddenly closed against us,
where should we be ?
In Canada generally the effect of
the treaty would be that our raw
products would go over to America
to be manufactured. Their industries would thus develope at
the expense of our own. Instead
of building^ up Canadian cities
American cities would grow.
American railrpads and American
seaports would develope at the
expense of our own.
The principal advocates of
reciprocity were the prairie farmers
who hoped to raise the price of
agricultural products, though at
the same time they wanted to lower
the cost of living. He reproached
the prairie farmers with selfishness
and shortsightedness.
The high tariff on the American
aide had built up their industries
so that they had a market for all
their produce, and it would be
well for Canada to pursue the
same policy.
As a Liberal he was sorry to
disagree with his party. He objected, however, tp two men going
down to Washington to bind the
whole country to something upon
which it had never been consulted.
The treaty would lead to loss of
fiscal independence, and probably
more and more concessions. There
was no telling where it tfeould
stop. No reciprocity treaty could
be permanent &9 conditions were
constantly changing.
Another result he feared from
the treaty was the > separation of
the East from the West. If the
East were linked to the States their
progress might be more rapid, but
that was the price we had to pay
for our nationhood. There was a
large foreign population whose sole
aim was to make money. If the
treaty went through we could not
ask them to forego' financial advantage tor love of the nation.
Mr. Leckie followed. He said
no treaty had been proposed.
Anything in the nature of a treaty
had been purposely avoided. All
that was proposed was that each
county should pass concurrent
legislation, which either could
cancel if it saw fit. He was a freetrader, he declared, and always had
been, and objected to the present
duties which Canada had to pay
whether goods came in or went
out of the country. He dealt in
turn with several of the objections
raised by Mayor Husband. As to
traffic going across the line, he
said we had got a system of railroads and waterways which enabled us to reach the Old Country
by a route 900 miles shorter than
the States. More and mo're wheat,
he believed, would go through
Montreal every year.
Mayor Husband had referred to
the selfishness of the prairie farmers. Could they be blamed for
wanting a chance to sell what they
grew? Who were the opponents
of reciprocity ? The manufacturers.
Were thev selfish?
It had been said that the country
was not considered in the present
negociations. Premier Laurier and
the Liberal government had gone
into power on the reciprocity platform. The people were disgusted
that-they had not got it long ago.
Mr. Lord, in opening, first gave
a brief history of tariff relations
between Canada and the United
States from 1854 until last year.
His objections to the present
treaty- were: -that it was inoppor-.
tune ; it was unnecessary ; it would
cripple transportation systems;. it
was at variance with the Canadian
policy of conservation; it would
seriously menace trade interests;
it would tend to draw Canada
away from British and closer to
United States ideals.        .'
It was inopportune because the
Canadian people had made no
demand for it, and have never
made it a public issue. It was un
necessary because it came at a
time when by our own industry we
had built up a trade which makes
Canada the most prosperous nation
under the sun, when we no longer
need help from the United States,
but when theyv greatly need help
from us.
It would cripple our transportation systems by drawing our trade
to United States markets., The
policy of the Hill railroads in the
west was directed to this end, and
the result would be that Western
Canadian produce would go via
these roads, and be shipped from
New York and Portland instead of
Montreal and Halifax.
The  United  States   natural   resources were rapidly becoming exhausted, and  the  necessity of obtaining new fields was recognized.
Canada    was   the   only   possible
opening, and  Mr.  Taft advances
this as a reason^or reciprocity.
-  It would seriously injure many of
our industries.     Mr. Fisher in his
speech, directly admits  that considerable damage would be done
to B.C. fruit.   There would be no
difference  in Western wheat, for
the tariff does not affect the price.
This is proven by the fact that there
is a much greater difference various j
neighboring states  in the  Union
than'   between  Canada   and   the
United States.   Even if the slightly
higher price  in the United States
was owing to the tariff, this would
at once be lowered by the dumping of millions of bushels of Canadian    wheat    into    Duluth   and
Minneapolis. '
The natural forces operating to
draw these two countries together
were so strong that ordinary means
would not suffice to keep the Dominion true to its own destiny.
Hence we must avoid any treaties
or international relations that are
likelyto denationalize us, and we
must use the tariff to build up a
great inter-provincial trade, to increase our natural resources, and
to buttress' our preference for
British democratic as opposed to.
republican institutions.
In his reply  Mr.  Kerr said  he
tion   as   it   affected   this   district.
Mayor Husband had   said  that  if
the 13 cents duty on apples  were
removed, the   price  of American
apples in the north west would   be
cut 13 cents and  we . should  lose
the market.   At present only about
one fifteenth of the apples sold on
the prairies was from  B. C.    He
did not think it likely that the Wash- j
ington growers would cut the price \
when there was  not  the  smallest
need for it.    They would be more
likely to leave the price where   it
was and put the 13 cents  in  their
pockets.     There, was   moreover,
always a market for No.   I  apples.
No place could get enough of them.
New York and other large  An.eri-
can cities were constantly demanding more  and  more   of the   best
quality of fruit.    If they could   not
get them from us, where could they
get them ?    In exhibition   after exhibition      we     had     repeatedly
taken prizes and beaten the enemy
and now when we had the chance
of a market of 92 millions, people
were too scared to take advantage
of it.    The  treaty  would   be  the i
making of the fruit industry in the I
Okanagan.     It  would   open   r
markets we  had   never  dreamed
It would effect a tremendous
boom on the prairies. The prices
of wheat etc., would go up into the
skies. The" abolition of. the tariff
would'mean the same prices as the
United States. What was keeping
Canada back today? Only that
the prices were so low that it was
not worth while for the Americans
to come over. Once this obstacle
was removed, there would be such
a flood of Americans across the
line as we had never seen before.
.And we should get the benefit.
;Mc:re thc^prairies were built up,
more other places were built up.
Mr. A. R. Lord also replied^
quoting several prominent railroad
men who had spoken against the
treaty. He also went carefully into its probable effect on the price
of wheat. - ',   .,
Aid. Leckie" and Mayor Husband were also given by vote of
the meeting the privilege of five
minutes reply. No decision was
given as to the result of the debate.

schoolhouse was well filled with a
highly      appreciative      audience,
whose interest was held throughout
the  evening.   The bright,  catchy
choruses   were    well    sung ' and
greatly   enjoyed1,    while   all    the
characters seemed to be quite at
home with their parts,  and  everything went torough without a hitch.
Credit is  due  to  Mr. Tom Lock,
who took the part of one of the
Music    Committee,    at    the    last
moment, and as "Sexton " he was
humorously realistic.    The Music
Committee, Messrs. W. Craig,  V.
Dilworth  and  T. Lock,  were an
energetic trio,  ana according  to
their own opinion, were useful as
well  as  ornamental   pillars of the
church.     Mrs.  Goodrich as Pres.
of  the  Ladies'  Aid   Society, presented  a  quiet  and dignified appearance, and the part  of " Daisy
Lovejoy," the school teacher was
well sustained by Mrs. V. Dilworth.
Both Mrs. Wriggleworth as Odeliah
Hasbeen, and Miss Ida Fleming in
the role of Petunia, looked their
parts to perfection, while Mr. Gray
will be dubbed the ' Professor' for
many  a  day.     The  Old    Maids'
Lament brought down  the  house,
and scored a well deserved encore.
Mr. Frank Farmer, as " The New

organist,  deserves   praise for her
efficient help.   In  fact, everyone,
including the performers, thoroughly enjoyed  the
.. The fruit-packing schools held
by the Department of Agriculture
in connection with the Farmers'
Institute, came to a close this week.
The schools have on the whole
been highly successful. Mr. Zer-
ener, the instructor appointed bv
the Department, is a packer of
wide experience, both in the States
and in British Columbia, and under
his tuition progress was rapid and
thorough. Considering the increasing demand for apple packers during the harvest time, those
who have attended the classes
will no doubt have every reason
to feel glad that they took advantage of the opportunity offered.
But although so far as the government is concerned the school
': -Josed, still another class is to
7A formed. The managment of
the Farmers'Exchange, fully realizing the advantage to them of having experienced packers to draw
upon when the season's rush is on
have decided to continue the classes
for a short time at their own expense.
A class for girls only is to be
started on Monday, April 3rd to
be held as before in the Exchange
building, from 9:30 a.m. to 12 noon
and from 2 to 4:30 p.m. The instruction is to be entirely free, the
only condition imposed upon those
faking the course being that the
Farmers* Exchanger are to be given
the first offer of their services when
the packing season opens, which,
of course, is nothing but fair. ■ The
services of Mr. Zerener have been
retained as instructor.    "
The experiment is an interesting
one, and there seems little reason
to doubt that it will prove of great
service in relieving such congestion
as was experienced last year due
to a scarcity of packers and fruit
pouring in from the orchards.
There should. be a great many
girls around town who could engage for a. few weeks.>in such a
clean and profitable occupation as
fruit packing. And as to their
ability, there are many people who
hold the view that girls make the
neatest and quickest". packers
Those who intend taking the
matter up should communicate at
once with Mr. B. McDonald, of
the Farmers' Exchange.

The  Wily  Politician.
Tt is to be feared that politicians
are insincere and artful persons. Not
long since, a newspaperman was talking with a political worker who had
spent some years campaigning in
pretty close relations with several
public men in Canada, and remarked
upon the singular gift, possessed by
Sir John Macdonald for remembering
tlie names and faces of even humble
persons whom he had not m-l for
years.    The politician smiled.
"And you will notice," the reporter
continued, "that Sir Wilfrid Laurier
possesses the same gift. I.have heard
several striking instances of it."
"Yes," said the politician. "And
Sir Charles Tupper had it, and so haa
Mr. Borden."
"It would'seem,, then," said the reporter, "that the possession of thia
gift raises a man to leadership."
"No. The gift comes to the leader.
In other words, it is largely a matter
of good management. .*. successful
man does not have to do his own remembering.. He can get it done for
him. A sharp secretary or campaign
manager can find'out a good many
things and speak a few useful words
to his chief at the right moment. For
instance.' the prompter who knowa
will tell his chief that some time during the afternoon he is likely to be
introduced to Mr. Horatfc. Smith,
who often tells the story of how he
6nce drove the great man out to a
meeting at a certain place. Sure
enough Horatio meets the leader."
The leader looks at him intently. 'It
seems tc me we have met before, j.et
me see. Yes—it was in the electi< u
of '90. You drove me out from the
railway to a meeting at Bileville.'
Does Poratio remember it? Well,
rather. He is tickled to death—and

Dangers of the House-fly
Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir:
As the fly season is approaching,
and already some of these pests
have put in an appearance, would
you use the influence of your
paper, to persuade our City Council
to take thia matter up at once,
before these disease spreading
nuisances have time to flourish.
Last year conditions in this re
gard were a disgrace to Kelowna,
or to any city that takes any pride
in its good name. The back yards
were littered with garbage, open
boxes and barrels containing
kitchen refuse of all kinds, provided breeding grounds for the flies,
and at the backs of the butchers*
stores, packing cases, which had
been used for fish, were a black
mass of flies, which, having settled
on all this filth, flew to the houses,
settling on the food, and carrying
disease. Kelowna will suffer from
an epidemic one of these days, if
more sanitary, conditions do not
In Winnipeg, the City Council
passed a by-law, compe ling every
house holder to place their garbage
in a metal can, With a lid on it, and
this garbage was removed at stated
intervals, by the city scavenger. It
is useless to put garbage in a
receptacle without a cover. I have
been told that it would be impossible to get people to keep their
premises clean, but I should
imagine that a few stiff fines would
have a salutary, effect.
Now is the time to face this
situation, before these pests have
opportunity to multiply, and surely
this is of more importance to the!
City ,and a more profitable subject
fpr discussion by our Council, than
whether it is right fbr people to
split firewood on Sundays.
Thanking you for allowing me
space in your paper for this

There are 20th Century Brand styles for young men, middle aged men, and older men. Between th« dashing distinctive-styles for youth, and the sedate gentility of clothes for
the matured men, there is only the difference of "lines," for the fundamental quality is the same in all. You will note in the picture certain garments designed for the fastidious
younger men, and the quieter style effects for strictly business or social wear, but nowhere will you find the friskiness of poor taste so often exploited as "styles."     Age fit is as

The B. C. Stock Breeders' Association has been organized for
some four years and during this
time it has-been working along
lines of improvement in the live
stock industry of the Province. It
has endeavoured in many ways to
assist breeders of pure bred live
stock and to improve existing conditions pertaining to the industry.
While its .primary function is that
of education it has also undertaken
much practical work. For the
ensuing year it will assist in defraying transportation charges on
pure bred stock imported into the
province, as well as stock shipped
from point to point within the
province, to all who are members
of the Association.'
Among other things, it is also
providing for special prizes at the
leading fall fairs, for this year; also
prizes for Stock Judging Competitions will be carried on under
the auspices of the Association
and it is advisable that all intending
competitors in this competition
should become members of the
Recently the directors decided
that a directory should be published in connection with the forthcoming annual report, which will
soon be off the press. The secretary has been instructed to compile
a directory of pure bred live stock,
which is being bred by all the

Simple Method of
Dehorning Cattle
Cattle are most easily dehorned
during calfhood. Caustic potash is
the usual agent employed, while
Gillet's lye does a satisfactory job.
The action of these agents' when
properly used is to destroy the life
"of the horn in its early stage, rendering the treated animal a smooth
headed beast, deprived not only of
the instruments of defence, but to
a large extent the inclination to
bully its mates. Dehorning by
Potash or lye is done before the
animal is ten days old, or as soon
as the button-like embryo can be
located on the calf's poll. The
hair surrounding the spot is clipped
off and the parts moistened with
soapy water. When using the
potash in the stick form it' should
be wrapped in paper to protect the
hand and an exposed end moistened and rubbed gently on the buttons in turn for about five minutes
until they become sensitive and red,
but not to the extent of bleeding.
Carejmust be taken that the dissolved potash does not run down
the side of the head, or the skull
may be seriously burned and permanently disfigured. If carefully
done, a scab soon forms, healing
follows.and the spot becomes covered with haif from the sorround-
ing part. With some calves the
operation may be done at four or
five days of age, while on others it
is necessary to defer the operation
for a few days longer. If treatment
has been neglected until the calf is
two or three weeks old the. horns
may yet be killed with Gillet's lye.
The preparation of the horn is the
same as for caustic potash. The
powder is moistened and worked
into a paste which is applied and
rubbed well in with a knife blade
or piece of wood. It is safe prao
tice to apply grease or oil to the
skin 'around „. the horn to protect
those parts from the action of the
lye, but no oil should touch the
part to be treated. The calf dehorned by either potash or, lye
should be kept from getting wet
during three hr four day3 following
treatment so "that the dissolved
caustic will not rundown and burn
the skin. The calf willsuffersome
pain for an hour or two, but no
other inconvenience is experienced
Treated calves should be tied sep-
erately so that. they cannot lick
each other.

have been shipping practically all
their stock out of the province, and
a great many of the younger cattle
have been dying off this winter in
the southern part of Alberta, and
south of the border in Montana,
owing to the scarcity of pasture
and the very deep show.

His excellency, the governor
general has transmitted to the
provincial secretary, through the
lieutenant-governor, certain correspondence-which he has received
with regard to a present to be
made to the King by all British
subjects bearing the name of
George. The project has been
taken up very actively in the Old
Country by a committee consisting
of Lord Curzon of Kedlestone,
Lord George Hamilton, Sir George
Reid of Australia, Admiral
Warrender and the Earl of Strad-
The idea is that the " Georges of
the Empire " shall contribute whatever . sums they may see fit and
that the money shall be used for
the purchase of some article of
ornament for His Majesty's personal
use, the presentation to be made
to him upon the occasion of his
coronation. The King himself will
decide what form the present is to
take. A list of contributors will
also be given to the King but without stating the amounts. The
governor general's letter adds that
all contributions in Canada are to
be deposited by June 1st, to the
credit of the King George Coronation Fund, Bank of Montreal,
Hon. Dr. Young, the provincial
secretary, has brought the matter
to the attention of the mayors and
reeves of the organized municipalities and of the government
agents in unorganized districts. All
of these are authorized to receive
contributions, and are requested to
bring the matter to the attention of
those interested so that all who
may desire to contribute shall have
an opportunity of doing so.
