Pool Room By-law Still Under
Discussion
in a
There was a full attendance at
the council meeting Saturday night
last. After the minutes had been
read the following accounts were
referred to the finance committee
for payment:
G. Monford, refund of city's portion of Pound fees charged on
,      10 cows. Dec. 10, 1910 $  10 00
C. P. R. Express..       100
Consol. Rubber Co., 9 respirators     18 00
J. W. Sanders, water connections      6 60
Pay  sheet  for  work  on Bernard
ave., Pandozi and Water streets   385 10
Aid. Dalgleish  announced  that
work on the Richter street side
walk would be commenced
few days.
Reference was also made to the
proposed sidewalk on Harvey
avenue, the mayor stating that the
council generally seemed to be ih
favour of its construction, and in
- all probability the matter would be
• proceeded with.
Mr..R.B. Kerr waited  on the
council, he said, on behalf of Mr.
J.  B.  Whitehead,   who  was   also
present.   The Pool Room by-law,
he noticed,  had  passed  its third
reading/and  the  time  of  closing
had been fixed at 11:30.   He would
like to  have exemption  made in
this clause for public holidays and
the evening preceding such holidays.   The stores, he said, although
closing, other nights, were always
kept open before a holiday.    It
was just at these times that there
waai: anything for Mr. Whitehead
in the billiard room.   The objection
to keeping open late should  not
apply to public holidays.    People
often stayed up late on a holiday
to go to dances, etc., and if it was
right to do that, he did not see why
they should not play billiards.   .
.    There was also another matter.
People    had    often   expressed
pleasure at the way Mr. Whitehead
was running the Pool Room.   He
had tried to run the business in as
straight a  way as possible.   One
result of this was that he was making very little money.   If anyone
else took  it  up they would make
more money, but might not run it
.   as well.   It was not policy,  therefore, for the council to squeeze Mr.
Whitehead in the matter of taxes
so as to make him sell:   Mr. Whitehead was paying $60 a year for his
license, $10 each   for six tables.
-It was not necessary that he should
be taxed in that way.   It was right
enough in towns where each hotel
had say one table each, and made
money from drinks, to charge $10
each.    Mr. Whitehead,, however,
had concentrated ail the' billiards
in the city into one place, and the
City   still .charged  him $10 per
table.   This was unjust.   Considering /hat the Pool Room was run in
a very repectable way, he would
like to ask them to alter the charge
so that Mr. Whitehead could pay
•s other business men paid.
Mayor Sutherland replied that
the license by-law would be taken
up in a week or two. There were
several small amendments to make,
and the couricil would then deal
with the arguments advanced by
Mr. Kerr.
A formal motion was passed
that the assessment of the city be
completed and the roll be returned
on the 15th of April next. Also
that a court of revision to consider
(and adjust if found necessary) any
appeal against .the assessment be
held in the. Council Chamber on
May 17th, at 10 o'clock ih the
forenoon.
The following mo tion was also
carried on the proposal of Aid.
Leckie: "That Mr. Teal be engaged at the rate of $100 per
month as foreman of the water
>. works, on streets and also for any
other work where required by the
city. The engagement to terminate
at any time on notice of the
council."
Aid. Cox then brought up the
case of a sick man who had been
receiving aid from the city. The
advisability of sending him to the
Tranquille Sanitaiium had been
considered, and he would like the
council to decide what was to be
done. The council would be responsible for $ I per day maintenance for any case sent to that institution.
The case, which was a very hard
one was discussed at some length,
and the following resolution passed:
"That the clerk be instructed to
make application at the Tranquille
Sanitarium for the admission of
Nicholas Kremer, and that the city
guarantee cost r>{ maintenance."
Aid. Copeland reported on behalf of the Park Committee that
they had been going into the question of improvement for this year,
and would like to get, if possible,
$ 1000 for the purpose.
Mayor Sutherland suggested that
it would perhaps be better for the
committee to first submit a written
report to the council.
The Pool Room By-law was then
taken up for re-consideration. The
mayor opened the discussion by
asking what the council would like
to do with respect to Mr. Kerr's'
proposal that clause 1 . relating to
the time of closing be amended to
exempt holidays and the evenings
preceding.
Mr. Kerr here interposed. He
said that on any holiday there was
almost sure to be a dance, which
would be continued all night. If
some of these dancers wished to
go across to the pool room there
should be no restrictions placed
upon them. Of course there were
certain holidays when the pool
room would be closed any way.
For instance, Mr. Whitehead's
religious beliefs would not permit
him to keep open Good Friday.
Aid. Jones: Is that the only
holiday Mr. Whitehead would wish
to keep?
; ^ Mr. Kerr, after a hasty consultation with his client, replied that
Mr. Whitehead might consider
Christmas day.
Some people, said Aid. Jones,
thought that Thanksgiving Day
should be regarded as sacred.
That, declared Mr. Kerr; was a
matter x>f opinion, and depended
upon what church one had been
brought up in. He himself had
been brought up in the Presbyterian church, where no day was
was considered sacred.
The amusement which had been
spreading in broad smiles over the
faces of the aldermen here became
audible.
The discussion continued for
some time in a more or less serious
tone. mr. Kerr's proposal, observed Aid. Leckie, was " so sudden."
They had had no time to think
about it.
Aid. Jones agreed that it probably would be better to give the
question a little more consideration
and the matter was eventually laid
aside until the next meeting.
The Cemetery By-law No. 88
was then read a third time.
^ The mayor mentioned that it was
time the applications for sipewalks
and water extensions were coming
in, and suggesied a notice in the
papers to that effect.
The question providing several
new hydrants was left with the
committee.
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday evening next, April
1st.
Distinguished Chinese
Visitor
Kelowna and the
Vancouver Market
The local Chinese entertained a
distinguished visitor last weekend
in the person of Dr. Yip Sun Sin,
head of the Chinese Freemasons.
Handbills were out last Friday
announcing his arrival, and an unusually large crowd, both yellow
and white, assembled on the wharf
out of respect and curiosity.
On the arrival of the boat the
learned Celestial was received by
some cf the leading lights of Chinatown, and escorted to the automobile which was waiting at the
gate. A procession was then
formed which passed up Main
street. A second automobile accompanied the party containing a
fearsome Chinese band, the melodious strains of which caused
even such hardened equines as
those attached to the butchers' carts
to make a wild burst for freedom—
and solitude.
Strange, by the way, that the
horses of all three butchers should
bolt at once. Looks as though the
trade union principle was spreading downwards.
Another amusing part of the
spectacle was the sight of our
worthy.citizen, Lum Lock, mounted
on a white charger, riding at the
head of the procession.
Dr. Yip Sun Sin was advertised
to lecture in the -evening in Raymer's hall on "Conditions in China"
but owing to fatigue of traveling
did not put in an appearance. . Hie
however, addressed his countrymen the next day, and held a
lodge meeting on Sunday evening.
The Dr. left by the boat Moiu
day to continue his visits to the
Chinamen of the interior.
New Boat-building Firm
-•i
City Of Kelowna
SIDEWALKS AND WATER
WORKS EXTENSIONS •
Notice is hereby given that applications
for the construction of sidewalks under
the Local Improvement By-law, also for
extensions of th\o Water service mains,
must be filed with the City Cterk on or
before April 15th. 1911.
G. H. DUNN.
City Clerk.
Kelowna, B. C,
March. 1911.
Messrs. Newby and Jones, who
took over the boat-building business
formerly run by Mr. L. C. Aviss,
have now practically finished their
large new workshop, which has
been built on piles near the boat
shed. The building is roomy and
well lighted and eminently suited
to the purpose. Machinery and
all necessary plant is being installed
to carry on the business on a far
more ambitious scale than has been
hitherto attempted in Kelowna,
and contracts are already in hand
which will occupy the new firm
for a considerable part of the
spring.
A fine new launch was built for
Mr. Newby in the workshop at the
rear of his house during the winter
months. This he intends using to
convey pleasure parties up and
down the lake at a moderate fee
during the season, A large stock
is also to kept of all .boat fittings
and general supplies.
With the fine water front and
facilities for aquatic sports such as
Kelowna possesses, there should
be no difficulty in making this the
centre of a. prosperous industry,
and no efforts will be spared by
the new firm to achieve that end.
A project which should prove of
no little interest to the farmers and
fruit-growers of this district was
that outlined the other day by Mr.
J. McMillan, who was visiting the
city on behalf of the Vancouver
City Market. This was no less than
a sheme for affording facilities for
the placing of Okanagan products
on to the Vancouver market.
That thia valley can produce the
very best of fruit, vegetables, poultry
and other product, has been repeatedly demonstrated, and the
wonder of it is that these products
have up to the present been almost
unknown on the Vancouver market.
Vancouver is our nearest large city,
and its consumption of such goods
as.we produce here in abundance
and quality is increasing every year.
It has been asserted that the handicap under which we have suffered
was due to concerted action on
the part of the coast commission
men. Be that as it may, the Vancouver council, who have taken
control of the city market are, determined to: remedy this state of
things.
Mr. J. McMillan, a Scotsman
with wide experience in the conducting of public li.arkets in the
Old Country, has been engaged,
and as a preliminary he has been
travelling through the valley with a
view to interesting growers in his
scheme.
Briefly the plan is that the market
should be opened and operated'by
the City, of Vancouver, sales being
conducted daily by: private treaty.
Friday is tp be special market day,
wlienall sales will be conducted
by auction (on the same principle
as Covent Garden Market, London,
England.) Immediately produce
is sold account sales will be posted
thus doing away with the long
waiting for returns which characterizes so many commission houses.
In this way it is hoped farmers will
be encouraged to become regular
senders. Cheques will be posted
every Monday, and as smart returns and prompt settlements are
the special aims of the committee,
it is hoped this will inspire confidence in the business. A
uniform commission of 10 per cent,
will be charged, and as there is
now a railway switch leading on
to the. market'platform, this should
be all the charges to meet. The
prodnce handled includes fruit,
vegetables, poultry, eggs, butter,
meat, pork, live stock, horses and
feed. It is well to note that all
transactions - and cheques are
guaranteed by the City of Vancouver. Mr. McMillan will be pleased
to give any further information by
addressing Manager City Market,

their eight days' engagement at the
Opera House last night in the
production of ' Zaza." The com
pany is a strong one and well up
to their work, and the repertiore as
advertised for the next week
promises to be one of the most
attractive which has yet visited the

successes, and there seems every
reason to expect they will be well
presented.

The Seventh Annual Convention
of the Okanagan District Sunday
School Association was held at
Penticton on Tuesday and Wednesday of last week, March 21st and
22nd, and was attended by a
goodly number of Kelowna people
as over thirty went down on
Tuesday's boat, and a iew more
followed on Wednesday.
There were four sessions held,
viz : Tuesday evening, Wednesday
morning, afternoon and evening.
At each and all of these sessions
splendid addresses were given, and
much discussion of the work took
place. The first session opened
with devotional exercises by Revs.
Cleland and Fallis, followed by
address of welcome couched in a
few well chosen words by Mr. A.
S. Miller, of Penticton, to which
Mayor Sutherland, of Kelowna,
replied, paying a tribute to the
Penticton people for their enthusiasm, assuring them of good
will of the delegates to the convention.
The Provincial Secretary, the
Rev. J. W. Williamson, gave a very
interesting opening address, laying
great stress on the character of the
work to be done in the Sunday
Schools. He said : " We have the
child; we have the teacher; we have
the Book, but the problem is how
to get them all to work together."
He also said the Child is jthe most
important factor in the community.
A^ye choirs of Penticton gave
sever&l musical selections during
the session, which were well received. .
The appointment of committees
brought this first session to a close.
The Wednesday morning session
was opened with devotional exercises by Rev. Auvache and Mr.
Loomis, of Penticton. The president Mr. J. R. Brown, was to have
given his address at this time, but
in his absence Rev. G. O. Fallis
read a/splendid address.
After the reports of the District
Secretary, Mr. J..C. Robson, and of
the heads of departments all of
which were decidedly encouraging.
Mayor Sutherland and Mr. M.J.
Curts extended va heart}' invitation
to the convention to meet
Kelowna in 1912, which
heartily accepted.
"The Problems of the Intermediate Teacher " were next dealt
with by Rev. Mr. Williamson, who
opened the subject after which
follpwed a very earnest discussion
of this most difficult problem.
After lunch, which was served
in Steward's Hall, the delegates
were" taken for a drive to various
points of interest by the Board of
Trade, which proved a decided
pleasure and a pleasant diversion
to all who accepted the invitation.
The afternoon session was called
to order by Rev. Mr. Robson and
Mr. J. G. Wanless leading in devotional exercises.
Rev. John Robson, of Vernon,
then spoke on " The best, methods
to develop the Missionary Spirit in
the Sunday School." He held the
view that no cniid is too small to
learn something of missionary
movements, and that this spirit can
best be developed by making the
children feel their responsibility to
some specific missionary work.
The subject of ' Graded Lessons,'
as dealt with by Rev. Mr. Williamson, proved very interesting, and
the delegates all felt they had a
better idea of this method of teaching after the discussion which
followed his remarks.
Mrs. J. G. Wanless in her treatment of " Primary Work," showed
that she was at home in this department, which is the most important of all, in that the Primary
Worker is laying the foundation
for the child's future character.
After the close of this session a
banquet was tendered in Steward's
Hall at which it is safe to risk a
venture that all the delegates and
all visitors to the convention were
present.
A song service under the direc-
thion of Mr. A. S. Miller, opened
the last session of the convention.
after which Rev. J. D. P. Knox and
Mr. O. E. Etter led in reading and
prayer.
Mr. Carter, of Victoria, then addressed the convention on " The
Adult Bible Class Movement,"- and,
coming from a man who has spent
years in this kind of work, his remarks carried a great deal of
weight After Mr. Carter's splendid
address, a discussion of the subject
took place, led by the Provincial
Secretary, in which many questions
were asked and answered.
Rev. F. W. Hardy, of Summer-
land, gave the last address at the
convention on "Signs of Promise,"
handling his subject in a masterly
manner. The spirit of optimism
breathed throughout his whole address, and, in fact, throughout the
whole convention.
During this last session Mrs.
Pelton, of Penticton, and Mr. Geo.
McKenzie, of Kelowna, contributed
solos, thus supplementing the choir
selections.
The President. Mr. J. W. Jones,
of Kelowna, then closed the Seventh
Annual Okanagan Sunday School
Convention.

are among them.   Why  not  take  Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy  and  cure your

The Roosevelt dam, the great
engineering work in connection
with the Salt River irrigation project, in Arizona, just completed by
the United States government at
an expense of more than $8,000,-
000, was formally dedicated last
weelf by ex-President Roosevelt,
after whom it was named.
The waters held back by the
dam will be used foe irrigation of
ii.ore than 250,000 acres of land
in the Salt River valley, and the
power created at the dam will be
transmitted electrically for more
than a hundred miles down the
valley to operate pumps. These
pumps will rise underground water
to supplement the surface supply
and will thus increase the irrigable
acreage. It, is estimated by the
Reclamation Service that about
60,000 acres will be irrigated by
subterranean waters, available for
for irrigation purposes only through
tbe operation of such pumps". The
big power house erected by the
government at the base of the dam
is completed and ready to supply
electric power at any time. It is
expected that the power generated
at the pumps will be sufficient, not
only supply all the power required-
for the working of pumps in the
valley within a distance of 100
miles, but also to furnish light and
power to the settlers in that territory
and to supply Phoenix with light
and power for running street cars,
mills and factories.
The dam is declared to be the
largest storage dam of its kind in
the United. States, and with one
exception, the largest in the world.
It is exceeded in size only by the
Assouan dam on the River Nile.
in the'eourss of his speech Colonel Roosevelt said: "Thanks to
the admirable work of the reclamation service, under the direction
of Mr. Newell, Western senators
and representatives in Congress
were already fully" awake to the
needs of the adoption of a national policy for the development of
of the arid and semi-arid west
through irrigation."
NOTICE.
The Kelowna Ginning Co., Ltd., having
'made arrangements for the installation of
an up-to-date Corn Plant, are now open to
contract for at least 50 acres of corn for the
season of 1911.
Intending growers are invited to
secure their contracts as early as possible,
as, in view of the cobs only being required
for canning purposes, the stalk will find a
ready market for stock feed, and in consequence this crop will prove most lucrative.   Lose no time.   Apply early.
KELOWNA CANNING Co.. Ltd.
Planting Fruit Trees
A large percentage of the fruit
trees planted each year never lives
to bear fruit. Generally the loss
is due solely to wrong planting
and subsequent neglect.
Plan to have the trees shipped
to arrive when the soil is just right
for working.
When the trees arrive, if you are
not ready to plant at once, unpack
them and "heel in," keeping  roots
moist  until   permanently  planted.
This-merely means that the trench
is opened, the  roots  put  in  and
loosely covered with earth.    When
ready for planting take a few trees
from the trench and keep the roots
covered as much as possible while
planting.   First   root-prune--it  is
generally best to cut back the longest roots at least one-third  with  a
clean slanting cut from below  upward and outward, so that the exposed surface easily  gets  in  contact with the soil.   Also cut off all
broken roots.   Spade out the hole
a little larger than the diameter of
the roots and scatter a few spadefuls of fine, rich surface soil in the
bottom of the hole.    Place the tree
in the hole, scatter more of the fine
surface soil over the roots, working
it around them with the hand, and
lifting the tree a  little to   get  the
soil all around the fine roots. When
the hole is partly filled  press   the
soil down over the roots with   the
feet.   If the soil is dry. pour a few
quarts of water  very  slowly  into
the hole, and shovel in soil around
the tree so that it is planted a little
deeper than it itood  in  the nursery, or just above the place where
the tree  was  budded.    Press  the
soil again around the tree with the
feet and place over it a  mulch  of
straw or something that  will   hold
the moisture, perhaps a foot  deep
and three  feet  in  diameter,  and
hold in  place  with  stones.   The
last thing to do is to head the tree
back to the  shape  desired.    One
must be governed in  this,  somewhat,  by  the  shape  of the  tree
when received from  the  nursery.
Two to four feet is thd best  height
for the  low headed  tree  in  the
family orchard, for it is more  easily pruned, sprayed and  the picking is facilitated.
During the first summer keep
watch to see if the mulch stays in
place around the tree, and if the
summer is very dry, pour a little
water on the mulch occasionally.
It is much better to grow some
crop between the trees the first
year or two, the cultivation and
fertilizing required by the crop'
putting the soil in good condition
for the root growth of the trees in
succeeding years. It is always
safer to protect young trees with a
good fence.—Garden Magazine.

maximum speed, and attractive appearance.
Retain their finish, and attractive appearance for years after the average boat is

These Boats represent the latest development
