City Council
Matter of Night Constable -
Expenditure Discussed
The usual council meeting last
Saturday evening was attended by
the Mayor, Aid. Leckie, Copeland
and Dalgleish. After the minutes
had been read, the following accounts were referred ttfthe Finance
Committee for payment :--

W. Kirkfey. 72 hrs    21 60
Aid. Dalgleish asked if anything
had been done with respect to
police protection at night. He
pointed out that pne man was
hardly able to handle the greatly
increased duties during the sum-
. mer. months. At the present time
the constable was being called up
-quite frequently at nights. The
various companies were bringing in
a lot of men for their construction
camps, and many of these were
loafing around and liable to get
into mischief. Lately the police
had been called out pretty nearly
every night.,
The matter had been brought up
some time ago, said the mayor, and.
a suggestion made that a rate be
levied upon the. business section
(if the town for the sTippo^or a
night constable.
Aid. Dalgleish said, he did not
think the constable had been kicking at all, but the duties were -becoming more than one man could
stand. If he did his duty during
the daytime, he should be able to
have his nights undisturbed. Outside of a few months in the summer
one man could handle the work
all right, but during the time when'
so many strangers were around
town a night constable was a necessity.
Mayor Sutherland took occasion
to sound a note of warning as to
the need of keeping down the
expenditure, if the taxes were to
be restricted to a reasonable limit,
There would be an increase in the
rate for school purposes of two
mills and in addition greater expenditure, in every other branch, i
The increase in this year's assessment of $25,000 would only produce about $500 additional taxes,
and there was no increase at all in
tile general revenue,
in" answer to Aid; Copeland, the
mayor said the school rate would
have to be raised owing to expenses
being somewhat higher, and the
employment of more teachers. He
also pointed out that in the item of
street work, the outlay already had
exceeded last year by $500 and the
work was not half done.
They had only started yet, said
Aid. Dalgleish. Bernard avenue
and Pendozi street would have to
be gravelled, and there were other
streets which needed fixing. It
seemed as though they would have
to cut something out Would it
not be possible, he asked, to spend
a considerable sum this year in
fixing up the streets, and spread
the payment over a number of
years.
That principle was all right for
new undertakings, answered the
mayor, but personally he did not
believe in borrowing money for
general maintenance. It was like
a man taking out a second
mortgage on his property to pay
the interest on the first. A city
ought ■ to be able to pay for the
general maintenance of its undertakings.
Taking up the consideration of
the sprinkling by-law, the mayor
observed that if i they went ahead
with the sprinkling of the outlying
districts as proposed it would cost
the city $500 of its general revenue
above what could be collected, for
the purpose under the by-law. In
making the assessment for sprink
ling. ' As soon as they got .outside
the business portion of the city,
there were so many vacant lots,
which could not be assessed, that
the amount possible to collect was
too small to come anywhere near
covering the cost. Last year in the
business section they had collected
more than was needed, but they
could not do that in the outlying
districts. If the sprinkling cart was
more up-to-date, the work could
be done much cheaper. The
trouble was they had not the
money to do things just as they
would like to do. If they had
about $50,000 to spend every year
they could no doubt do things up
very nicely.
Aid. Leckie thought $500 too
much to spend in sprinkling. It
was no doubt a benefit to the street
but a lot of street work could be
done for $500.
The mayor estimated that it
would cost as much to extend the
sprinkling to the outskirts of the
city as would put a coat of gravel
oh Bernard avenue.
Aid. Copeland thought they had
better confine the sprinkling as
before to the business part of the
city.
The matter was, however, left
for a full meeting of the council to
decide.
Mention was made of a gift of
trees to the citj» by Mr. F. R. E.
DeHart. The council had not been
aware, said the mayor, that the gift
had been made, but as soon as they
had found out they had hastened
to express their appreciation.
Aid. Copeland admitted that he
was'a little, guilty. He had known
of the gift, but had forgotten to
mention it to the council.
A map of a sub-divison submitted by Mr. E. J. Clement, was referred back for a slight correction.
The meeting then adj^itnvad
until May 20th.

Kelowna-Vernon
Stage Accident
Automobile Plunges Down
Steep Bank.
.-. Mr. A. J. Clarke, an experienced
architect and designer, lately of
Ontario, has taken up residence in
town with his family on Eli avenue.
Mr. Clarke declares he is tired of
the cold of Ontario, and will permanently settle amid the more
genial climatic conditions of the
Kelowna district.
Mrs. H. Davies arrived Wednesday morning, having been on a
visit to Summerland.
Mrs J. Bouch was a visitor to
town on Tuesday from the coast,
leaving this morning.
1 he new leader of the city band,
Mr. Kendrick.is rapidly getting the
boiys into shape, and has already
shown something of what is possible for our local band with proper training. The band is to be in
attendance at the Victoria Day
sports and a splendid programme
is being arranged for that occasion.
The secretary, Mr. A. S. Wade,
says that under Mr. Kendrick
things are now running splendidly.
All that is now needed ia the support of the public which it is hoped
will be liberal, as amongst other
things the band is badly in need
of new instruments.
Last Sunday at the Methodist
church in the absence of the Rev.
J. W. Davidson, the pulpit was occupied in the morning by Mr. Collins and in the evening by Mr.
Geo. E. Boyer.
The automobile stage which
carries the mail and passengers between Vernon and Kelowna, met
with disaster last Thursday afternoon, on the outward journey from
Kelowna.
The car had reached a point
about nine miles from Vernon
where a steep incline drops sheer
away from the road side for a considerable distance. On attempting
to round a dangerous curve the
heavy car cut into the soft sand
and failed to answer the steering
gear, running off the road and toppling over down the hill.
There were eight people in the
car at the time, .Scott, the stage
driver Mr. and Mrs. Homuth and
three children who were passengers
to Vernon, and two men who were
riding for a short distance on the
foot board.
Mr. Homuth, with admirable
presence of mind, as soon as he
saw that the car must go over,
threw his little boy out on to the'
road, where he fell uninjured. The
two on the foot board also jumped
off and were unhurt, except a
slightly sprained ankle. The rest
went down with the car which
rolled completely over on the steep
slope.
Mr. and Mrs. Homuth and their
two daughters although not seriously injured were badly shaken. Scott
himself fared the worst, and it was
feared for some time that he was
fatally injured.
Help was soon at hand from
Monford's camp which is close by
and, Mrs. Hume, the cook, rendering every assistance until Dr. Morris
who had been summoned from
Vernon arrived in his automobile.
Mr. Scott, Mrs. Homuth and her
eldest daughter were then removed
to the Vernon hospital, which the
two latter, happily, were able to
leave a few hours later.
Scott's injuries were found to be
serious. He was badly bruised
about the head and body, and
and his shoulder blade fractured.
His lip was badly torn, and
several other minor injuries. Latest
reports from the hospital state
that owing to his advanced years
his condition is looked upon with
considerable anxiety.
The greatest sympathy is felt in
the district at the misfortune
which has overtaken the genial
old stage driver, and a subscription
list has been going round during
the week to render him assistance.
A sum of about $500 was raised
in a few days.
News of the Valley
An interesting, and according to
the Okanagan Advertiser, an entirely successful experiment was tried
a few days back at Armstrong with
orchard heaters in fighting the frost
enemy. The temperature dropped
to a dangerous degree about midnight, and nearly a hundred fires
were lighted as quickly as possible.
Thermometers in various parts of
the orchard showed that the fires
raised the temperature eight degrees. About three o'clock in the
morning clouds gathered in the
east /and all danger was over for
that night.
The Union Bank of Canada
opened a branch in Enderby this
week.
Summerland citizens will be busy
to-day with rake and broom, and
shovel and wheelbarrow. The
reeve of Summerland has proclaimed to-day, Thursday, May 18,
1911, a Civic Holiday, and calls
upon all Summerland citizens to
observe the same by participating
in a general clean-up.
George Fox, late Waterworks
superintendent at North Vancouver
has been appointed chief waterworks superintendent at Vernon.
Meeting of
Board of Trade
Discuss Matters of interest
to District.
A meeting of the Board of Trade
was held Tuesday evening. In the
absence of the president, Mr. R. B.
Kerr took the chair.
On behalf of the publicity committee, Mr. W. E. Adams said that
they were not yet ready to report
on the question oi a new booklet,
although considerable correspondence had been going on in reference to the matter.
Mr. J. B. Knowles said he had
had his attention drawn to the need
of replacing the "Orchard City"
sign which was blown down from
its place over the wharf some
months ago. The cost of replacing
it would be about $40.
Mr. Pitcairn pointed out the need
of a' telephone in the secretary's
office, and suggested that the
Board should bear a portion of the
expense. Mr. Fisher was secretary
of several other organizations
which might also find it to their
advantage to contribute to the cost
of a telephone. It was left with
the secretary to look into the matter
and report at next meeting.
Mr. L. Hayman asked if anything
had been heard of the new telephone cable which the Dominion
Government were to have laid
across the lake. He understood
that an appropriation was made
for the purpose in last year's
estimate, but so far nothing had
been done.
Mr. G. C. Rose suggested that
possibly the change of superintendents in the valley had something to
do with the delay.
It was mentioned that Mr. Kil-
patrick of the C. P. R. was in the
neighborhood, and likely stop off
at Kelowna, and that it would be
well to take the opportunity of
bringing to his notice" the need for
extension and improvement of the
tracks as discussed at last meeting.
Mr. Elliott enquired if any progress had been made towards
having a mail clerk placed on the
boat. ,
The secretary was instructed to
write to the Associated Boards of
Trade asking what reply had been
received to their resolution on the
same subject.
Mr. F. R. Rees asked what steps
could be taken to have more news
concerning the Okanagan appear
in the Vancouver papers. The
fact that so little attention was paid
by the coast papers to affairs in
this valley placed us at a great disadvantage. Settlers as a rule were"
in the habit of booking through to
Vancouver, making that their starting point in looking over the
province.
A somewhat lengthy and informal discussion took place on
this matter, which ended by the
secretary being instructed to ascertain from the coast and eastern
papers whether they would be
willing to insert news items from
Kelowna.
Mr. H. H. MacLeay spoke on
the need of an experimental farm
for the vallev, and enquired as a
new-comer what steps had been
taken to secure such an institution
for the valley. The matter had been
repeatedly taken up, he was informed, with the Dominion Government, but without success.
Mr. Pitcairn pointed out there
was now an additional argument
in favour of the scheme, in the fact
that the experimental farm at
Aggassiz had been changed into a
dairy farm, which left the. province
entirely unprovided for as regards
an experimental farm devoted to
horticulture.
Mr. Adams moved that as Mr.
H. H. MacLeay would be going
east in a few days, he be asked to
interview the Hon. Sydney Fisher,
minister of agriculture, who was a
personal friend of his, and endeavour to press the claims of the
district for an experimental station.
A suggestion was also made by
Mr. Adams that "when the sign was
replaced on" the C. P. R. whatf
some information respecting the
amount of agricultural land in the
district —computed to be -about
60,000 acres, be added.
The secretary announced that he
had received a note from Mr. M.
Hereron, who regretted his inability
to be present at the meeting, and
informing the Board that Richter
street was now opened to the
K. L. O. road. Mr. Hereron also
said that the Hon. Price Ellison
would be in the city in a few days,
and suggested that a committee be
appointed to wait upon him in
reference to the erection of a new
court house and lock-up.
The suggestion was acted upon
and Messrs. J. W. Jones, R. B. Kerr
and M. Hereron appointed to
interview Mr. Ellison.
A letter was read from the
librarian of the.Carnegie Library,
Vancouver, asking for pamphlets
and other information respecting
the district, which could be placed
for the" convenience of the public.
The secretary had replied that
the present pamphlet was now out
of date, and a new one was in
contemplation, copies of which
would be sent as soon as ready.
The meeting then adjourned.
Municipal Court
of Rveision
A meeting of. the Court of Revision was Ijeld yesterday morning,
the mayor, Aid. Leckie, Copeland,
and -Dalgleish being present as a
court to hear objections to the assessment roll for 1911.
Mr. R. B. Kerr appealed on behalf of Mr. C. J. B. Anderson
against an assessment of $ 1,600 on
Lot 74, map 483. His contention
was that $500 of the improvments
on this lot were in the city limits,
the'balance being outside the" city^
on piles,over the lake.
The matter was- discussed at'
some length and eventually 'referred to the city solicitor.
Dr. B. F. Boyce appealed against',
the assessment on lots 18, 19, 20,
39, 65, 75' and 84, map 483 upon
the ground that same had been
given to the city for street purposes.
The clerk wos instructed to strike
these off the Assessment Roll upon
the receipt of proper deeds made
out in favor of the city.
Several other notices of appeal
had been sent in, but were unsupported.

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir—
I should be glad on behalf of the
Sons of England Benefit Society if
you will permit me to encroach on
your space sufficiently to make
known to resident Englishmen that
such a Society as this exists in our
city. Its object, like all kindred
societies, is of a provident nature,
and one to which all Englishmen
who are eligible should belong.
For particulars, a call on the
Secretary, Mr. D. R. Butt, or a post
card addressed to Mr. D. R. Butt,
Secy S. O. E. B.S., will give any enquirer all the information required.
And further, as a society we would
solicit all newly-arrived Englishmen
to get in touch with the Society, as
a n.eans to aiding them in their
new surroundings, and I think any
member already belonging to the
Society will esteem it a privilege to
do what he can to further the
interests of those who are fresh
from the Old Land, and strange to
the ways of Canada. To all such
enquirers we are prepared to srive
a hearty Welcome, and aid them
all that is in our power. Thanking you in anticipation of this
insertion,    I 'atari
Very respectfully yours,
J. H. DAVIES,
Presides*.

The  court   of   appeals   of   the
Methodist church recently decided
that under no  circumstances, are
women   to    represent    Methodist
congregations at national  conferences.   The issue was raised  by
the  British Columbia  conference,
where  a  woman   elected    by    a
quarterly board  to  represent the
church was refused  admission  to
the  conference.     Last   year   the
Kootenay    district    elected    Mrs.
Lashley Hall as a delegate to the
annual  conference which met in
Nelson.     In  consequence  of   the
ruling  of the  chair at that  conference  against the  admission of
women  an  appeal  was^taken to
the appeal court of the conference,

Ye Olde Firme of Wagstaffe
Have settled the question for a • great many, as their seventeen
years reputation in England and also their reputation in Canada
for manafocturers of pure jams, has become a by-word among
those who have sampled their product.
Wagstaff's  Pure Jam  is  made  from  pure,  fresh   fruit,    and    is
put up in gold lacquered tins,  from which   there   can be   no
contamination.     The purity is guaranteed by   the word "pure"
on every tin, which stamp cannot be put   on   unless   contents
are declared pure according to government analysis.
The   price   is    reasonable,    being   only   90c.    for   a. five   pound  pail.
The  most popular selling lines are Strawberry,  Raspberry, Green  Plum
Red Plum, Raspberry and Gooseberry, Peach, Apricot,  and Bk. Currant.
We recommend and guarantee these goods.
