Aid. Dalgleish reoorted that he
had taken' upon ftmf_self%t?> pur.
chase 300 ornamental trees for the
city. He had intended bringing up
the matter ait the last meeting of
the council, but had overlooked it.
He had, he said, consulted the
-Mayor and Aldermen Copeland
and Jones and a* the season was
getting pretty well advanced,   it
: had been decided tp purchase the
trees at once, without waiting to
bring the matter before the present
_ meeting. 7 he trees, Aid. Dalgleish
explained, had been brought in by
the foreman of the Central
Okanagan Land Co., upon his own
responsibility fqr sale to the residents of Glenmore. He had only
disposed of A few of them, and,
seeing he was likely to lose money,
fiad offered them to the city at cost
7 price, viz: Z5 cento each. The
trees had been examined and found
to be in very fair shape. In reply
to a question, he said it would take
about 300 trees to fill the gaps in
the streets.
A resolution was passed "That
the action -of the Board pf Works
in procuring 300 trees and planting same be confirmed—estimated
cost of this work, $275."
Aid. Cox brought up the question
of a grant to the city band, iri which
he said he would like to see some
action taken. He reminded the
council that the services of a good
leader had been secured, and that
they had now great hopes of
having a strong band capable of
rendering good music during the
summer. It was the intention of
the band to practice two or three
nights a week, and to spare no
pains to develope an efficient
organization. He strongly urged
that the council grant the amount
asked for by Mr. D. W. Crowley at
the last meeting.
Aid. Leckie aaid he was quite in
favour of the council granting aid
to the band, but he thought it
would be preferable to pay a stated
sum per concert instead of a
monthly sum. In that way the
council would retain some control
over the expenditure, and have
some guarantee that they were
getting value for their money. He
did not wish to cast any reflections
^ipon the honour or integrity of
those who were running the band,
but it might easily happen from
circumstances out of their control
that the band could not fulfil its
obligations. The members might
withdraw or the bandmaster leave,
and the city have nothing show for
the money they had granted. If
they paid so much for each concert
this would be avoided, and the
ratepayers moreover, would know
what each concert was costing.
Aid Cox objected to this scheme
sa impracticable. The.band was
hard at work practicing, but some
of the money would be needed
before the band would be in a
position to give concerts.
Some discussion followed on this
point, and it was eventually decided
that a clause could be inserted in
the motion making the grant which
would protect the city. The resolution adopted was as follows:
" That the council grant to the
Band the sum of fifty dollais per
month for six months, provided
that the Band is satisfactory to the
Aid. Cox suggested that the clerk
be instructed to have some building permits printed, which was
accordingly done.
The mentioned that it was the
intention of the Board of Works to
submit by-laws to the electors at an
early date for the raising of money
to purchase a rpek crusher and
street sprinkler, and also for the
purpose^ of opening up Sutherland
avenue and Elliott avenue.
Aid. Leckie reported having
ordered some wooden pipe for the
water works department. Several
applications for extensions had
"been received, and it would be a
loss of revenue to the, cfty;iif same
were, not made. In reply to a
question Aid. Leckie said Jthe new
pip« would be.-four inchedin7 diameter with the exception of
sufficient six inch  to  extend the
Richter street main  to  the ; new
Anglican Church.'
Arrangements were made for the
holding of a Court df Revision of
the 1911 Assessment Roll and a
resolution passed that the court
consist of the Mayor, Aid. Jones,
Copeland, Dalgleish and Leckie,
who would sit in the Clerk's Office
on Wednesday, the 17th, at 10 a.m.
The meeting then adjourned.

Programme of Sports
for Victoria Day
Kelowna Will Have Big Time
on the 24th
Victoria Day is undoubtedly one
of the most popular holidays of the
whole year. It comes at a time
when nature seems to be shaking
off the solemn garb of winter and
donning the brighter colours more
appropriate to the sunshine and
the fine warm weather; when the
whole range of the animal kingdom
is beginning to feel frisky, and take
its pleasure in the open.
For many years past on the 24th
Kelowna has managed to provide
itself with a day of sport, and music
and this year is to be no exception
to the rule. i,Given fine weather, a
big day is; promised at the Exhibition grounds next Wednesday
week. The events will be arranged
in a similar way to last year, which
has been found from, experience
to be most convenient, that is, foot
races in the morning commencing
at 10 o'clock, and horse races in
the afternoon, followed by a
lacrosse match between Vernon
and Kelowna. This latter will be
played on the Exhibition grounds,
which, We understand, have now
been put into good shape. This
will obviate the inconvenience and
annoyance bf the crowd having to
find fresh places to view the match.
The Kelowna Band, under its
new leader, Mr. Kendrick, who
was formerly leader of the Vernon
Band, will be out to provide the

Enlarged activities on the part of
the Provincial game department,
especially in the more strict enforce-
of protective regulations this year,
will necessitate a large increase in
the staff of the department, says
Mr. Bryan Williams, provincial
game warden. He intimates that
about twenty-five men will be em.
ployed for the major portion of the
year and announces that a new
permanent warden has been appointed for the Nicola and Similkameen districts and another for

Laurier and the Canadian parliamentary delegation are in England

educational campaign for reciprocity throughout Canada under
the direction of the Liberal members
in the House of Commons. The
opponents have planned a similar
campaign against ratification. The
government is confident thai the
result will be the creation of so
strong a demand for ratification
that the Conservatives will not be
able to continue their filibuster
when parliament resumes, provided I

The Right Hon. David Lloyd
George introduced last week into
the British House the long promised
plan of state insurance against unemployment, sickness and invalidity.
The chancellor divided his proposition into two parts, one dealing with sickness and the other
with unemployment. By the provisions of the measure every
worker whose annual earnings fall
below the income tax level of £160

C.P.R. Locomotives To
Burn Oil in B.C.
Thus Remove Cause
Many Forest Fires
With f.he object on hand of conserving fuel and the forests of British Columbia, the C. P. R. will install oil-burner locomotives. With
the introduction of oil the source
of the majority of forest fires would
be removed.
This important announcment
was made recently by Vice-president Wm. Whyte of the C. P. R.
"Experiments" said Mr. Whyte,
which have been made, have proved that oil is a superior fuel to coal
and gradually oil will be introduced
on all the lines of the Canadian
Pacific on the coast and the interior
of British Columbia. Coast steamers would also burn oil," Mr. Whyte
added, and the system would be
immediately introduced.

General Election May
Occur Before Xmas
The crop report issued by  the
Saskatchewan department of agriculture, last Saturday shows that
fully 90 per cent, ofthe wheat crop
has been sown.   In  one or  two
districts wheat seeding has been
completed and,  taken   generally,
is almost as far advanced as it was
at this time last year.   Seeding operations were general throughout
Saskatchewan on April   19.   This
is as early as the average season,
although much later than last spring
which was exceptionally early. The
growth this year is, if anything,
more rapid and in some districts is
reported much ahead of the preceding year.   In several districts
early sown wheat is stated to  be
one or two   inches   above   the
ground.   The correspondents state
there is no immediate need for rain
at least, not until after seeding is
completed, except in the southeastern part of the province, where it
is reported it would benefit the fall
and spring plowed as well as assist
the crop sown on stubble.

The oldest apple tree in the
Pacific northwest, planted 85 years
ago, by the early officers of the
Hudson's Bay Co., from seeds carried in their pockets from England
has been discovered by A. A.
Quarenberg, district horticultural
inspector, and positively identified.
Col. McGunnegle, commanding
officer, upon learning ofthe history
of the tree, gave orders to have a
fence built around it, a tablet bearing ashort history and every precaution taken to preserve it. Inspector Quarnberg says die tree may
live to be one hundred years old.—

War-Time Secret Lurks In an Ontario

districts ot Ontario there are treasures buried to find which would mean.
«6ernsl . opui nee . to tha fortunate
finder. Many of these storiei us
undoabJ^'i'v myths, but ii ia equally
true that: ».. goodly number are based
upon more ox leas authentic tacts, so
that a story of a lost treasure that in
itself evidences a considerable degree
of reasonableness, and is substantiated by material evidence and the wosd
of people y«t living, may not be ua-
About midway between the towns
oiOshawa and Whitby, on the north
shore of Lake Ontario, is situated
what appears at the present time to
be nothing more than a bleak, barren
marsh, with its uninviting bogs and
dense overgrowth of rushes and vegetation peculiar lo such places. It
was not always thus, however, tor
many years ago this same area was
a body of water of considerable depth,
being in reality a bay of the lake.
The story goes that during the war
with .the United States in 1813 the
hay. afforded shelter to a Canadian
schooner while engaged in carry gold
specie from Kingston for the pay of
the militia stationed at York.. The
vessel was sailing up the lake before
a brisk sou'easter late in the afternoon of a September day in the year
J8I3, and when a few miles west of
Oshawa harbor it sighted an American boat, one of the pirate type that
were prevalent on the great lakes'
during the war and wrought havoc
with Canadian vessels. The captain
i«w the coast fairly well, and he
immediately thought of the bay as a
means of escape, reckoning that tha
Anjcric&ti boat, being. of greater
draught, would be unable to navigate
the comparatively shallow, entrance.
With all haste he put into the. bay,
and his surmise proved to be correct,
tar, while he was.-able to work tip
the bay till he was a considerable dis-
taace from the lake, the gunboat, by
reason of its draught, was snable ti .
enter. Not to be daunted, ttt* Americans stood off as close to the shore
m tfaeyTlared and commenced to bon*-
ibissd the Canadian boat. The eap-.
tstia. Uariog lest they might land, aud
t-s>tta<-k him on shore, thought it best
to unload his cargo and endeavor to
conceal it: in the woods back .from.
the shore. The task was extremely
arduous because of. the absence of
any* semblance of a dock, involving
the necessity of carrying the gold in
small boats as far inshore as pos.-sible,
and shouldering it the remainder of
the distance over the bog and uncertain footing which old stumps and
sunken logs provided.  '
By dint of perseverance -inspired •
by1 the -momentary feat.bf assault at
the .hands of. the enemy, the task was
finally accomplished and the treasure
temporarily secured in conceajment. ■
Darknsss .began to fall ■ over-the land,
which added security to their position,
since it afforded more complete concealment ,and because of the fact that
the Americans, when- there was insufficientlighp to enable them to direct their fife, simply sailed away,
to the; great delight of the defenceless
Canadians. Anxious .to. reach; York
.and th&jprotectjon of its fort, as soop
as.:-they felt assured that the enemy
bad: abandoned the attack, they be-
,gan- the. work of reloading prep&ra-
.to'rj y. to v continui ng>their> voyage. It
is not'Jhird to believe that the-task
was- nioBt, difficult, considering that
all .was .absolute dri rkness .by .,opw and
the nature of the ground over which
they had to carry the kegs of gold,
inor ia it at all improbable'that, aa
•the story .goes, o,rie of. the kegs; was
dropped during the handling from the.
small boat .up to the . side ot the
schooji©r..v;Me8n6 iwerQ-not ath^nd to
recover it, and indeed had they possessed facilities it might have been
impossible to locate it and extricate it
from the mucky bottom ot the little
bay. So, having finished loading,
-they weighed anchor and were soon
glad to be once more on the open lake
and on a fair way to a place of safety.

Sandwich Golf Club  Has Bought the
Prine*  H»m«t«ad-
Hit'; Mwa of Sandwich has ten*
keea. distinguished as a place of bssa
*T sis well, as for its historical Uteres*,, and, one of,,the most lovely, aa
well as the most interesting spots ia
%h& vicinity has been seckredter
tbe naw golf and country club, la
which many men from Windsor and
»airoit axe interested. The Oak Ridge
Gtalf Club was, formed some, ten years
ago; and bad a nine-hole course cm
rested property below Sandwich, bat
as a leas lease oould not be obtained
is was decided to.give up this property and purchase grounds where
perBna&eoi: improvements might ; be
____t*de v^ith some confidence that such
expenditure would not be wasted.
With this in view an option was secured on fifty-six acres of the Park
Farm, and a stock company was incorporated and sufficient stock subscribed to purchase this property and
provide funds to make a good start
towards laying out a. golf course and
fittins op a clubhouse. The credit
of originating this scheme and sue-
cus8fulry carrying it through is due
to Mr. R. M. Morton, and shareholders are congratulating themselves on
having made such a good purchase,
for in a few years this property will
be worth double the money expended.
This venture will alter one of the
most romantic places ita western Ontario, for Park : Farm, was. long ago
the h«>me of Col. John Prince, conspicuous for his forceful conduct dur-
ingvthe Patriot rebellion in 1888, and
particularly that part ofriV which
culminated in the battle of Windsor,
where, as Col. Prince's;official report
states, "of the brigands and pirates
twenty-one were killed, boeides towt
that were brought-in at the close M
Iho engagement, all of whom I ordered shot, and it was done accordingly." This was certainly a drastic,
measure, and a military council look-,
ed into the matter and it was discus-'
sed irio the Imperial Parliament,
where- the great Wellington himself
spoke ,■- in .behalf of Col. :;Prinee, de-'
«krii_g that the eiremmstaoeea. requir-.
id vigorous. treatme»t; tkatwi: sob
skould be silo wed to, enter a cows tr jr.
sad march against unprotected cHt-J
seas without beings severely dealt
witk. Certainly the. shooting .of tJseas.
triiseness cleared Essex County -w
fcose styling themselves Patriots.
The.oomir* of .John Prince to'
BsskKricSk was an event in its history,
for he introduced foreign tastes ood.
a flavor of the English .gentleman «t.
leisure. .He hed bten a barrister ki
Gloucester, -England.: and came to
Canada in search of, change and syort.
It mattered little to "him where .he
settled, so long as game .-.wee abundant and ''the company congenial.
These conditions being fulfilled in
Uandwhfc, to Sandwich he cvma in
1834, aocoenpanied by his wife, three
sons, five English servants, and a
box of golden guineas so heavy two
men were required to lift it.' Two
servants, m»n and wife, decided, te
try fsirming, so Prince looked about
him, and finally purchased a beautiful piece of rolling land directly
behind Sandwich. He stocked tbe
farm with thoroughbred cattle imported from Engladn, built a house, and
placed his retainers on) the land. The
woman, however, was an expert oeok,
and, tiing of. country life, she and
her, Jmsband established themselves
.in" a hotel-in 8andwieh, wn«ro for
years their house was famous for old
■ English comfort and the excellence
iof;its dinners.
Prince then decided to occupy
Park Farm himself. He added two
large wings to the house, and turned
it into "What he called a shooting-box.
He made the grounds; beautiful with
hedges/gardens and miniature lakes,
he imported pheasants, peacocks and
swans, and placed deer and other
game in the natural woods adjoining*
When be and his family were settled
in Park Farm his hospitality knew
no bounds; the house was soon filled
with sportsmen, and the stablea with
their horses. Prince spent money
lavishly, and -was never known to
refuse a loan nor take a note for security.

An Unprofitable District.
Two very interesting reports on
portions of- the-Nor ih west -Territories,
southwest of Hudson j Bay, have just
been issued by the Dominion Geological. Survey. They are of especial value
to Ontario, on account of tne fact that
the region concerning which they
give information is that part of the
unorganized Northwest Territories,
formerly part of the,district of Kee-
watin, which Ontario^ is so strenuously endeavoring to h^ve added to its
area. •'
Judging • from both reports there
seems to be little prospect that the
provinoe will gain a region in which
may be found any.valuable economic
- minerals in paying quantities. Even
if the difficulties of transportation
are overcome. It is very doubtful
whether the mineral found would repay working.

Points in Setting Hens
Many Failures Arise From Ill-
prepared Nests
To make a good start is half the
battle, and many are discouraged
from keeping poultry as a result of
their comparative failures with
hatching and rearing. Experience
is necessary with this, as in all
branches of farming, and if the
would-be poultry-keeper will take
advantage of the writer's experience
in this matter he will have no
reason to complain on that score.
Almost any cross-breds will do for
the purpose, providing they have
not been crossed with a non-sitting
breed. The Wyandottes, Orpingtons and Rocks are all good sitters
and mothers, but the former preferably, as they are not quite so
heavy and clumsy as the two last
named. Sometimes some of the
non-sitting breeds of the Leghorn
or Minorca will get broody, but in
no case should they be set, as they
are rather wild and liable to break
the eggs and may give up setting
before the chicks are due to hatch
and thus spoil the whole batch of
eggs. A hen should not be moved
from her nest where she first commenced to get broody until five or
six days have elapsed. If they are
moved before they are thoroughly
broody they will not settle down
kindly to their new abode. A
thorough broody hen will not leave
the nest unless removed by force
and should peck at the intruder's
hands. Before the hen is obtained
a nest should be made in readiness
for her. Any box of sufficient size
will do for this purpose. A rounded hole in the shape of a nest
should be made in the soil in a
spot high enough so that rain water
should not drain into the hole. If
the land is too wet some soil should
be placed in the box and rounded
out in the same way in the shape
of a nest. If you follow out the
first course and make the nest on
the ground, the box should bave
one side and the bottom taken out.
It should then be placed the. nest,
but before this is done a little straw,
hay or moss litter should be placed
in the hole, which must be well
rounded out in the shape of a basin
so that the eggs will roll to the
centre, otherwise if they roll to the
outside of the nest the hen may
not cover them and they would get
cold and be spoilt.

Birds are of great value to the
fruit grower, as they live entirely
on insects, and thus keep, them in
check and prevent great loss. ' A
few birds cause some damage to
fruit and other crops, but the injury
is trifling when compared with the
good that is done.
It is a great mistake to sacrifice
a hundred birds for the damage
that one may do. Any man who
growl fruit or vegetables, or even
has a kitchen garden, should have
a common knowledge of the habits
of birds. If a blackbird is seen in
a grain field it does not necessarily
follow that he is doing harm.
Woodpeckers are often shot in
orchards when a careful investigation would show that they are destroying injurious insects.   '
There aie many instances where
birds have been killed fer destroying fruit, when an examination, of
their stomachs has shown that they
were eating more injurious insects
than fruit. Even though some
birds may eat a little fruit it is a
small part of their diet. During the
breeding; season they live and rear
their young almost exclusively on
insect food.
Birds are the most valuable asset
of the orchard or the farm. Protect
them.'-rCanddian Horticulturist.

W'l-ow Lake. Two days T spent at
Banff, a place of great resort for
Canadians in the. summer. One great
attraction there is the National Park,
where herds of moose and a few of

country are able to realize without
actually visiting there. On every
hand I saw evidence that the Cana
dians were taking full advantage of
the enormous possibilities of their
country in wheat growing, mining,
or fruit farming. But the land as
compared with the people is out of
all proportion. Thd country i3 cry

its development is to proceed on th<

ticulntly in Western "Canada and
British Columbia. In those parts of
the country the skilled agricultural
laborer and the farmer are wanted,
men who have an expert knowledge-
of land and are able to put it to good
use. Much of the land in favorable
situations, that is, in near proxin.it>
to the railway line, is taken up, but
as the railway system extends "this
difficulty will be met."
Mr. Just's attention was called to
the recent importation of Canadian
peaches into England. "This is almost what I expected.- They, came

further west, British^ Columbia, for
instance, are growing'fine fruit. The
question is: How can you get fruit
from those far-away places into the
English market? To the original cost
has to be added the cost of freight
over many thousands of miles of land
and sea. At the present time British
Columbia is supplying the country as
far east as Winnipeg with fruit,, but
the British Columbians want to do
i.'reater things and extend the sphere
of their operations. In respect of
fruit the people of Winnipeg are
fortunately situated. A great deal .f
the early fruit from -California is sent
to that city, and later in the year
they reap the advantage of the Brit

said that his knowledge of the fisheries of British Columbia would not.
allow him to pass judgment on the
suggestion of Sir George Doughty.

fishermen on the coast. But he. pointed out that the fishing industry of
that province is largely in the hand?
of the colored races. Railway develop,
