sidewalks be passed." Also the
following: " That t\\p sidewalks to

improvement be advertised as required by law."
Mr. D. W. Crowley* who was
present, then addressed the council.
He was there, he said, representing
the irrigation committee, who were
appointed at a public meeting the
previous week. In company with
Aid. Copeland and Mr. McMillan
he had gone over the irrigation
ditch all over the town. The
committee had examined the system thoroughly, and had already
started men at work cleaning out
the ditches, which was the first
f thing to be done.
corner of lot 12, map 737
N.W. corner of lot 8, map
They had
gone   very    carefully     into
probable   cost   of   handling
system for the present year,
they had estimated at $600.
The ditches had . not been
properly cleaned . out for several
years and were in a very bad
shape. If the water was turned on
in their present condition, there
would no doubt be Hoods which
would cause very considerable
damage. There was some little
repairing to be done to the fluming
and then so far as it extended, the
system would be first-class.
The provision'of a good supply
of irrigation water, continued Mr.
Crowley, was a matter which
a«Teoled those on the outskirts of
the town more than the" small lot
holders close in. The former had
been paying heavy taxes for a long
time without deriving much benefit
and he thought they were entitled
to some help from the council
this matter. Without water it was
impossible for them to get
crops from their land.   _
Aid. Gopeland said that as a
member of the commitee- entrusted
with.the matter, he would like to
explain how they had arrived at
the estimate mentioned in Mr.
Crowley's request. After a careful
examination of the ditches they had
estimated that it would take at
least $300 to clean them all out
and re-build a portion of fluming
which was broken down. The
Other $300 was for the maintaining
of a water bailiff for four months
at a- salary of $75 per month.
Personally he felt that the city
ought to give the grant asked for.
Aid. Cox asked if the committee
had formed any idea as to the
opinion of the taxpayers in making
their rounds of the ditch. They
had no doubt had conversations
with several in respect to the
ment of a grant by the city.
Aid. Copeland said that so far
as he had learned, they all seemed
anxious to have the water.
Aid. Jones enquired if-they had
any idea as to the acreage affected.
That would be very difficult to
arrive at, replied Mr. Crowley, but
there was a very large area this
side of the creek which was dependent upon the irrigation system.
Aid. Jones doubted the fairness
of asking the city to bear the whole
of the expense. Those people who
had installed the city water system
were buying water from the city
and paying for it. He did not
think if wouid be "quite just to" the
ratepaynrs to go to such a large
expense in providing others with
water free.
Aid. Leckie did not think the
owners of land on the outskirts of
the city were under such great disadvantages in the matter of tas
paying compared with those nearer
the centre. Those who had bought
lots close in were assessed
considerably higher than those
further out, and in that way things
were evened up pretty well. For
the city to bear the whole expense
of irrigation for the benefit of just
one particular section of the ratepayers was sure to cause a lot of
hard feeling, and was, moreover,
establishing a precedent which
would be difficult to refuse in
succeeding years. There wns
quite a large, section of the town
which could^ not get any possible
benefit from the expenditure.
These people would have to help
to pay for what other people were
using. The council were there to
represent the whole of the ratepayers, and he did not see how lie
could discriminate in favour of a
few. For these reasons he was
not in favour of the city bearing
the whole of the cost.
Mr. Crowley contended that the
expenditure would be for the benefit of the whole town. It was not
a good advertisment for the town
to have people diive around and
see trees dying out for want of .water. When people saw the poor
crops some people had to put up
with for want of water they were
liable to be disgusted with the
place. The city had certainly been
slack in not taking control before
now. They ought certalrlly to get
into shape to do so this fall.
Mayor Sutherland said that this
question of irrigation was something he had been taking up privately for a considerable time. Some
people had an idea that nothing
had been done. This was because
up to the present his investigation
had been carried on privately and
and apart from municipal work.
The matter was full of legal difficulties, and he had personally been
at a great deal oi trouble and expense in endeavoring to ascertain
exactly the position of the city,
and the. powers possessed by the
council in handling the problem.
He had twice interviewed Premier
McBride, and the Attorney-General
He had had three interyiews with
Mr. Billings, for which he had paid
out of his own pocket. He had
taken the question up with the
water commissioners,'and had obtained two legal opinions from-Mr.
Kerr f~r which he. had also paid.
He could assure them he had spent
more time over the irrigation problem than upon any other matter.
The latest legal opinion he had
received was one contained in a
letter '«ritten by Mr. R. B. Kerr.
Mr.'Kerr drew attention to certain
sub-sections of the Municipal
[Clauses Amendment Act, 1910 by
which the city was given power to
pass a by-law to purchase from the
owners the ditches, flumes and all
the distributing system. This, the
w'riter considered, gave the city the
right to handle the irrigation system
without acquiring the water rights.
The watej would still be owned by
those who held the records, but
their means of getting water would
be owned by the city. Such a bylaw would have to be approved
by the Lieutenant-Governor, and
then by the ratepayers.
. There appeared to be-thus only
three lines of action, this contained in Mr. Kerr's advice of purchasing the ditches, assignment of the
records to the city by the holders,
or a special act to give the city
greater powers.. The simplest and
easiet seemed to be the assignment
of the records.
Other places, continued the
mayor, were experiencing the very
same difficulties which we had to
encounter here. The act had been
amended session after session by
the Legislature in an endeavor to
make it easier for municipalities
like Kelowna to get control of their
irrigation systems.
The question, however, was one
which had never beer raised in the
council. It was not much use
bringing it up until it was known
just what they could do, and what
powers they possessed.'
IF the xouncil_realIy_ wished to go
into the matter, they would have to
get the advice of some good legal
authority, and outline a proper plan
for taking over the system. So far
as he could see, the easiest and
best method was to get hold of
the records by assignment from the
ownets. He had spoken to a great
many people of this plan, and had
only met one or two who would
object to transler their water right
to the council.
Returning to the question of a
grant from the council Aid. Leckie
read the following motion:
"That the councl make a grant
of $300 for the purpose of cleaning
out and fixing up the irrigation
ditches, and that this, amount be
placed at the disposal of the committee appointed at the public
meeting held an the 21st inst." It
seemed more reasonable, he considered that if the people got the
ditches fixed up and the water free
they should pay a bailiff ko look
after the system. This would be
meeting them halfway.
This proposal, of course, raised
the old difficulty of collecting a fee
from each ofthe water users, which
Mr. Crowley declared he would
not undertake on any consideration
They had no means of compelling
people to pay, and he was quite
sure the.8ame thing would have to
be contended with, of people taking the water and refusing to pay.
And how were they to make thehi?
He had no objection to paying
himself, but he did strongly object
to paying for someone else.
- The apparent impossibility of
getting all who used the water to
bear a fair share of the expenses
incurred gave rise to a good deal
of more or less serious suggestions
as to the best means of making
Aid. Leckie said he was so far
interested in the subject that he
would undertake to help the committee to fix anyone who stole the
water without paying.
Aid. Leckie's motion to grant
$300 was eventually passed.
Mayor Sutherland asked if the
council wished to take any steps
towards the city's acquiring the
irrigation system.
Aid. Leckie said he personally
had no objection. He would like
to see the city control the system
and tax the. land irrigated for its
A resolution was passed as follows : " That the citv take steps to
acquire irrigation rights within the
city limits, and control the distribution of water."
It was also resolved that the
Board of Works be instructed to
have the telephone poles moved in
Harvey Avenue.
Real Estate Is
Waking Up
Many Important Deals Put
Through This Week
Contiuued on page 6
Successful Exhibition
by Athletic Club
The Kelowna Athletic Club held
another successful exhibition of
boxing, wrestling, etc., last Thursday evening. Although the price
of admission had been raised there
was a well-filled hall, and the funds
of the club weie considerably augmented. As on the previous occasion Dr. Huycke acted as chaiwnan.
The boxing included a three
round bout by Claude Newby and
Abbot; a light weight contest between Fisher, of Woods Lake, and
L. Paton, of the Vancouver Athletic
Club; the middle weights were
represented by A." C. Petman and
W. Miller. The heavy weight bout
in which as usual a good deal of
the interest centred, was between
H. Johnson and Bigby.
A new feature was a demonstration of club swinging by J. B.
Whitehead. Messrs. J. F. Burne
and Errington gave a display with
the foils. The wrestling match
between Woods and Beecher,
which was so highly popular last
time, was repeated, Woods scoring
two falls out of three.
Musical items were rendered at
intervals by C. Quin, H. Johnson
and A. E. Woods.
An unusual activity has characterized real estate in the city and
district during the past few days,
and many thousands of "dollars
worth of business property has
changed hands, in addition to several important orchard sales. Besides these several transactions, involving much larger sums of money
are pending.
The vast amount of development
work which is going on in the district is no doubt beginning to have
its effect on the value of business property. With the growth
of the district the city is bound to
develope, and evidence is not
wanting that ih a very short time a
considerable rise in price will result.
One of the most important purchases of the week has been that
made by Messrs. D. Lloyd-Jones
and A. Day, who bought from Mr.
Bertram for $12,000 the fine corner on Bernard avenue and Ellis
street, including the house occupied
by Dr. Martin. The property comprises something over two acres.
Mr. S. Bray sold his lot next to
the Post Oflice to the Belgo-Canadian Syndicate, for the purpose
no doubt of erecting offices for the
company in the near future. The
price, we understand, -was $2,400.
Another business lot was disposed
of by Mr. Thos. Lawson on Water
street behind the Bank of Montreal.
The purchaser was Mr. S. C. Cosens.
Mr. Mawhinney sold four acres
on Ethel street opposite Mr. W.
Lloyd-Jones' house to D. H. Ratten-
Another notable transaction was
that made by Mr. Harry Royce,
who disposed of his fine twelve-
acre place on the Vernon road for
$1000 per acre to the Taylor Bros.]
The property is exceptionally well
situated, and has about nine acres
of orchard which was planted last
year. A new house has also been
built within the past few months.
Mr. W. R. Trench has sold his
house on the east end of Bernard
avenue to Dr. McNaughton. He
has purchased lot from Mr. Harvey,
sr., adjoining the old school ground
and is already commencing the
building of a new residence.

The Ketde Valley Railway surveyors are having some difficulty
with their location lines east and
west of Penticton. According to
the "Penticton Herald," it has been ,
found impracticable to build a line

canyon and a new line has been
run which keeps closer to the lake-
shore than the previous one. It
passes back of Summerland round
the base of Giant's Head ancl enters
Trout Creek valley west of the big _

and Penticton before the final location on. the east side of the lake
is made.

The Osrea* Frettt.d Coast of the Pacific Province Has Everything From
the Sardine to the 'Whale, and the
Wealth That Swims Beneath the
Wavfes Is Almost Incalculable-
Fringe of Industry Not touched.
' "Ji it's sport you want, good fishin'
and huntin.', you'd best come back
with me." '*
' The speaker was a fisherman from
British Columbia, a man who had his
sport and earned his bread in a little
fishing smack on the Fraser River
and along the Pacific coast. He had
come back east to see "the folks,"
arid they had expected him" to stay,
but he would not, no, not yet. Maybe
in a few years, when he was too old
to fish, or do much of anything, he
might come back, but he did not
know. There wns a something in
tha swish of the tide and the smell of
the ocean and tho rock of his little
■fishing smack out there that was a-
calling to him, and lis wanted to go.
•;Many a tourist who has visited the
Pacific coast ami who has been for-.
tunate enough to see the fishing bbat3
leave Steveston on a Sunday evening
will understand tha desire of the-fish*.;
efmen to return to the life that "would
always be a-calling him. Hundreds
of boats gather in for the clo«e time,
which is from six o'clock Saturday,
inorning until six o'clock Sunday
evening, to allow the-fish to get up
the rivers to t_._ spawning ground.
Promptly at the hour of release the
little white sailboats, like a flock of
large birds; unfurl their wings and
akim out over the water. At first
they appear to be going together, but
aoon they are spread far and wide.
ov-r the rolling-waves, dancing gaily
along north, south, east and west, until one by one they disappear, each
careless little craft on a deadly purpose bent.
Although fishing is spoken of as
one of tiie leading industries of British Columbia, and there are some
[twelve thousand men engaged in fishing and in the canneries, the fringe
'of the industry'has not yet been cut.
Some idea of where British' Columbia
will stand in thi3 industry in the.future may be gleaned from the fact
that, although the average annual out-'
pat for several years has been over
six million dollars, 80 per cent, of
this is credited to salmon alone,
which, except halibut, is the only fish
that has been taken in large quantities  for  commercial  purposes.      7
The reason thut the salmon has
fallen such an easy victim to man is
due to its habits, and, by the way,
the name salmon does not properly
belong to any fish in the Pacific.;
However, they have become the commercial salmon of the world. The
so-called salmon is similar in form
.and habits to those found in the Atlantic^ but their life history is different, that is. so far as it is known,
which as yet is but slightly. But
that slightly reveals what man would
call a tragedy. Maybe in fish life
it is not.
The .Sock-eya or Blueback salmon
is commercially the most important
fish in British Columbia, and, like'the
'other kinds of salmon, it generally
deposits the spawn in lake fed or lake
feeding streams, the first of the run
pushing up to the extreme head
waters.. This run is where the^tra^
gedy begins. Every fourth year , is
called "the big year," the following
year "the lean year." Why this is
so no one can tell, altlidugh many
theories have been offered. On this
fourth year the run in the Fraser
Eiver has been known to be. so great
that the fish; have cirbWded ana shoved in their eagerness to, get up until
some have been left oh the banks to
die, and others have- been bruised
and battered in the crowd. But many
fish reach the desired spawning
grounds, and here is the fish tragedy. As soon ns the spawn is deposited the fish die; both male and
female. Some mad Impulse urges
thletri~6ri until they fuifirtneir"mission in life, and then maybe they
hear the (.all to the "fishes' paradise" where men do not fish. Anyway, whatever happens, they die without a struggle. A peculiar feature
of this large run every fourth year
in the Fraser is that It has no marked
counterpart In nny other river in the
province or on tho coast.
No one has. yet been able to tell the
life history of the young. It is not
known how long they live in the fresh
water before going out to sea, nor is
anything   known   of   their   feeding
f;rouuds in the salt water. It is be-
ieved they must live in the open sea,
for they are never found in the bays
afid intetaf,-;' Which are So numerottd
along the coast, nor is anything" seen
of them again until the fourth year,
when theic is another mad rush for
the head waters,and after that dead
fish line the sHtiW or'float, belly up,
down the river. 7 7
Fishermen claim that fish have
been marked .in,the^big year when on
their way backed the ticeari and that
the satoe fish have been caught the
, fourth  year  after.      This,  however,.
has not been authenticated.
A peculiar thing about the salmon
is the distortion the heads of the
males undergo when goifag up the.
rivers. The. Dog salmon ana the
Humpback get their names because
, of this distortion. These, and also
the Spring salnioti-and tho Ooho, are
valuable c6nliiie',"iiilly in British
I British Columbia cunnot help having n large fishing industry for it has
a coast line, including Vancouver Islands  and  the  Queen  Charlotte Is-
! lands, of 15,000 miles, protected from
the ocean storms by thousands of
islands and all the coast waters are
teeming with life, life from tho tiny
| sardine to tho mighty vlale. And
tbo great advance mado in salmon
canning is but an  instance of what
1 moy be expected in the future.

Two well-known Torotnoniaas
whose talent tor acting has be-n allowed to lie dormant all their _ive»
made their debuts a few days ago.
Mr. Lawredce Solman, the manager
of the Toronto Ferry Co., will always
be able to say that they appeared in
the original production of Rupert
Hughes' farce, "Excuse Me." It was
given a reading here in order that
the owners might copyright it in England, as the law requires a red-tape
performance, and the stage manager
had a very seried array of talent at
his disposal. >      7
Mr. Garwood appeared very much
at home in the role of a"TJk>rgyman,
who was trying to disguise.while oh
a holiday, so that no one would recognize his profession. Mr. Solman
had the part of an Easterner who was
crossing the continent in order to be
married, and it appeared to make him
very nervous. The nervousness may
have been assumed to fit the part, it
may have resulted from an effort to
keep track of his lines and also occasionally answer the 'phone in the
grant office, but a casual observer
would have said that Lol Solman had;
stage frighit..
The audience was very small and
select, and the way in which they
applauded seemed to disconcert some
of the less experienced actors, though
the nrteitibera of the professional company did not mind. Half; way through.
tho second act, a large section or the
audience interrupted. His remarks
did not suggest perfect satisfaction,
but he- may Hav« been bveraritieal.

Oapl. Dan Macauley, a Newfound-,
lander engaged many yearg in sealing, had an adventure at the Com-
manderofski seal rookeries some years
ago, which was as daring as it was
cheeky. It was a. dull April morning
when hir schooner Beatrice—she afterwards became the Duchess of Bedford when used by the Mikkelsen
Arctic expedition and- Was wrecked
in the Arctic—anchored off the seal
rookeries ,and the Russian guard of
:Jhe eovftrnbr^ ahd_ien.i.men. did not
see the sealer in the tog.
There were twenty-four men on the
sealing schooner and flteen of them
landed with rifles and went .direct to
tha little fort near the seal rookery.
Capt. Macauley went in to see the
governor of the island, and presented
his compliments. He told the Russian that he had come to raid the
sealing ground. He informed the
governor that ten men Were no good
to drive out his twenty-four men, and
they might as well look at the matter
in a proper light.
He had brought some whisky ashore
anyhow, in th? hope that the governor
might accept his hospitality. The
Russian sat down at one side ot the
table, the aialfer at the other, while
his cr?w Was engaged on. the sealing
grounds clubbing and skinning the
valuable -lur bearers. • POr several

Real estate  seems  to  have
taken quite a lively turn lately,
every  day bringing  news   of
some  important deal   having
been   put  through.    A   good
deal of attention seems  to  be
paid just now to business lots,
which in itself is a sure indication that there are good   times
ahead.    Kelowna is not by any
means a  boom  town—grown
up in a month to fall flatter
than a last week's  newspaper.
It's record of progress has been
steady but sure and solid, and
now it seems as though it were
on the eve of coming into  it's
own.    Business was never so
good as it has been this spring

ing to be noticed as one goes
around town—a feeling which
finds expression in a confident
and cheerful    optimism—that
our velocity is accelerating—in
short,  that we are  getting  a
move on. And why not ? Where
in  the whole valley will   be
found so much  good land  as
surrounds Kelowna?    Where
in the whole province i3 so
much costly development work
being carried on as will   be
found within a few miles radius
of our town ?    Many hundreds
of thousands  of dollars  have
been spent, are being spent,
and will still be spent,  in  the
improvment of the rich areas
of fruit land, which will some
day make of Kelowna one of
the busiest shipping centres in
the interior of the province.

Ever since Lve chose the prettiest and most becoming fig-leaf in the garden the eternal feminine has dressed more

good clothes long before the idea penetrated the reasoning head of man. Always she has wanted them for herself (and
usually she gets them). The small boy lifting his vpice against the maternal application of soap suds and scrubbing
brush is the early masculine protest against the doctrine of the value of appearance which met the usual and most deserved

It is one of the unending struggles of feminine intelligence to instil the truth of the doctrine in the dull male mind.

Much criticism is directed against
the United States in Great Britain in
consequence of their maintaining a
navy on the Great Lakes in contravention of the terms of the Rush-
Bagot .treaty. The London press

of a peace pact with Great Britain.

acres of agricultural land.
A movement is afoot at North

prevent fish from going down into

catch big trout in the small lateral
ditches during the spring and thousands of young fry end a short and
unprofitable life in some small
irrigation ditch because of the lack
of screens.

The citizens of Canada are becoming thoroughly aroused over
the " Ne Temere " decree of Pope
Pius. It appears that this ecclesiastical law of Rome has been made
the civil marriage law of Quebec,
and under it the courts have
annulled marriages performed by
Protestant ministers. That such a
thing could be possible under the
British flag is almost inconceivable,
and in fact, outside of Quebec it

obtain property at low prices, and

into lots averaging a third of an
acre each, and will be sold on the
best terms, and at prices away below those that have prevailed for
years. The entire property is
planted in orchard, much of which
is bearing, and is in an excellent
state of cultivation. Those wishing
to secure a firstclass homesight at
bottom prices should consult W. J.
Clement or E. L. Clement at once.

The telephone poles, it was
explained, had been set too far in
to the road. The idea was to have
them set back and grade up a good,
wide street. The cost would be
about $275.
Aid. Jones said if Harvey avenue
was made good it would relieve to
a great extent the traffic on Bernard
Mr. Crowley said he had another
petition to make, this time on behalf of the city band.
The Band, he said, had been
successful in securing as leader a
competent musician who had
worked up the Vernon band during
the past two years. He thought
there would be no doubt about his
making good. They had not approached the council at the beginning of the year for a grant, as
the band was then in a somewhat
disorganized condition. The new
leader had been engaged at a
salary of $60 per month. The
band would undertake to raise $ 10
if the council would pay the other
$50. It was quite necessary that
the city should have a band, and
he could guarantee that the money
would be well spent. They had
never had such a good chance of
making a first-class band. Vernon,
he reminded the council, was paying their leader $120 per month,
and Summerland $60. The latter
was now quite a fine institution
and a good advertisement for the
Aid. Gox, as a member of the
Band committee, supported Mr.
Crowley*8 request. He regretted
they had not been, successful with
their band leaders in the past.
1 here was no doubt, however, that
iney   nau    scCuicu   an    /-_ i     man
now. He would like to Bee the
council take the matter up at once
and help them along. He was
quite sure the majority of the ratepayers were in favour of having a
city band. It was one of the best
advertisements the city could have.
If this city intended to draw tourists
here, they would have to provide
music. He thought the money
would be well invested.
The matter was eventually left
over for future consideration.
By-law No. 89, to provide for
the levying of a special rate for
street sprinkling, was then taken
Aid. Jones suggested that the
whole of Bernard avenue should
be watered this year, and most of
Pendozi street.
A difficulty presented itself in
carrying the sprinkling far from
the centre of the city in the fact
that no rate could be levied against
vacant lots,, but only on occupied
Aid. Dalgleish said that the
watering was a great benefit to the
street itself, preventing a good deal
of cutting up into sand.
It was decided to include in the
area to be sprinkled, Bernard
avenue^ from the wharf to Ethel
street, and Pendozi street from
Bernard avenue to Glenwood
avenue, the rate to be 2 cents per
foot frontage per month.
The by-law was read a second
and third time.
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday next.
