City Council
New Money By-laws Introduced
—Poll will take place July 7th,
An extra meeting of the city
council was held last Thursday, the
Mayor and Aid. Leckie, Copeland
and Cox being present.
The business consisted chiefly of
introducing three new by-laws.
No. 90 yras (or the purpose of raising the sum of $4,000 for the open-,
ing up of Elliott and Sutherland
avenues, St. Paul street and Wilson
street; No. 91 tp borrow $3,000 for
extensions to the water works;
and No. 92 to borrow $3,000 for
the purchase of new road machinery, viz.: a street sprinkler, rock
crusher and portable bin.
Aid. Cox expressed the opinion
that the purchasing of the road
machinery might well be left over
for another year. .
The mayor," however, 'suggested
that the by-law be allowed to proceed, and give the ratepayers a
chance of making known their
wishes on the matter.
The by-laws were given their
first and second readings, after
which the meeting adjourned until
Saturday evening, June 17th.
The council met again on Saturday at the usual hour,' the Mayor
and Aid. Cox, Leckie and Copeland
attending. t
The minutes -were read and
adopted, and the following accounts referred to the finance committee, to be paid if found correct:

,_ The resolution was passed that
By-laws 90, 91 and 92 be>ead a
third time. ,
Aid. Cox again expressed his
opposition to the latter, which was
for raising money to purchase road
machinery. The Board of .^Vorks
had spent a good , deal of money
this year, and the city could very
well wait for another year for the
machinery. ■   ... .
Aid. Copeland said he agreed to
a certain extent with Aid. Cox, but
at the same time they were' bound
to have some better materia! than
they were at, present using for the
streets.   The shale rock they were
{Hitting on would certainly.not last,

quickly. The shale, of course

winter when work was slack, for

when crushed would give a covering which would be practically
An offer had been received from
a local company, it was stated, for
a second-hand rode ci usher.
The mayor thought that specifications should be got otit, and the
different firms allowed to tender
on it.
. A resolution was passed that Byr
laws 90, 91 and 92 be advertised
according to law, and that a poll
be taken at the Council Chamber
on July 7th, j 911, from 9 ajn. to
7 p.m., and that G. H. Dunn be returning officer. '-.•..
. The mayor mentioned that he
was contemplating a journey to the
coast and as he . would probably
be away for a little time, it might
be well, to -appoint o*_e •of the
aldermen to qct in his place during
his absence.    7
It was accordingly resolved that
"Aid. Leckie be acting mayor during
Mr. Sutherland's absence.
The meeting then adjourned
until until Saturday, June 24fh.
To-day, barring mishaps, the premier ceremony
amidst all the many time-honored displays of Britain's
monarchial system, takes place in Westminster Abbey,
when George V. is crowned King of Great Britain and
the British Dominions beyond the seas, Defender of
the Faith, Emperor of India.
The magnificent pageant which accompanies the
ceremony will be witnessed by millions of people
assembled in the British capital, the unique feature of
the present crowning being the large share taken in.

From our own correspondent.
A battle Tryal took place on
Monday between the mighty rush
of the flood waters of Mission
Creek, and an outfit of men and
horses proceeding up to the intake
of the Rutland ditch. ..John Wool-
sey, whilst taking die team and
wagon across the creek had a
bigger contract ;'. than he could
handle. The first, thing that happened was that .the wagon box
floated off, carrying Andy and all
their grub and tackle with it. John
jumped out and stayed with the
team whilst Andy made an unsuccessful attempt to save the rubber boot? and grub. He couldn't
save anything, however, and went
back to the assistance of the team
which* was now in bad straits.
The wagon-had turned completely
over, allowing the doubletrees to
fall out, thus freeing the team.
They speedily became badly tangled up, fastened as they were by
necky oke and • tugs. Becoming
exhausted in their struggles to get
free, they sank tb the bottom, and
itwas only by holding up their
heads above water until,Tom Smith
and W. Craig Could get to their
assistance, that they were eventually saved. Everything in the;
wagon was lost, except a can of
strawberries which floated to the
side, and it was only the pluck of
the boys'which prevented a catastrophe. John's long legs stood
him well, but he was quite wet
when he pulled out.
Rumors are around of a big concert for the purchase of an organ
for the Baptist congregation.
Everyone seens to be agreed that
this one of the best growing seasons
ever remembered. Nice showers
havei kept crops moving together

Except perhaps with but the one
usual exception, no kickers have

A big. bush fire was burning for
some days this week over Black

and Tuesday.
What might have been another
lake tragedy was happily averted
Thursday night last, when Mr. H.
Rogers and Miss Fanny Copeland
were out canoeing on the lake.
The canoe by some mishap was
overturned when about, 200"yards
from the shore. Mr. Roger pluckilv
held' on to the overturned canoe,
supporting Miss Copeland until
assistance was sent from the shore,
A Edwards rowing out in a small
boat. There appears to have been
some in getting help at first, those
witnessing the occurence imagining
that the pair wero "imply fooling,
and fully able to swim. There was
no worse result than a brief scare.
Two successful meetings of the
Farmers' Institute were held. this
week, the first at the Ellison district
schoolhouse on Monday evening,
and the second at South Okanagan
on Tuesday.
In each case the evening was
divided between two lecturers, Dr.
W. W. Jones, who is a resident of
South Okanagan', and who . has
been selected by the Department
of Agriculture this year to leeture
in various parts of the province on
the scientific aspect of soils, the
conservation of moisture and kindred subjects, and Mr. Reed, an
expert poultryman and editor of a
poultry paper published in Victoria
■ Mr. J. R. Terry, the provincial
poultry instructor, had been
scheduled to be present, but had
been detained at. Victoria owing to
changes io the live stock branch of
the Department, Mr. Morley A.
Jull, the Live Stock Commissioner,
having resigned his position under
the Government to take up
position inVancouyer.
■;. Mr. Reed, who spoke first, gave
aii interesting talk on "Practical
Poultry Keeping," 'bn which he
speaks with authority, being' the
owner of a large poultry plant on
Vancouver Island,' The market for
eggs in the Okanagan was not yet
very satisfactory* he said, owing to
the fact that there were not sufficient breeders engaged in the
industry to make it possible to ship
bpt eggs in large quantities. The
local, consumers could only take
comparitively few, and when their
demands were satisfied the price
dropped. There was a remedy,
however, in the system of preserving eggs. These should be shipped
as preserved eggs, and not as fresh
laid. It was important that nothing
but good eggs should be sold.
Fresh eggs should be sold as fresh,
preserved as preserved, and bad
eggs should be kept at home.
In respect to housing ofthe stock
he strongly recommended the
"Woods" house, which seemed
to satisfy all requirements. He
urged the need of vigorous spraying with some creosote preparation
to control the insect pests, which
were the ' poultry man's greatest
enemies, taking vitality out of the
birds which should be going to
-egg production. In selecting the
breed of birds to use, he believed
there was more, in the strain than
the breed. The best results were
not obtained from any particular
breed, but from birds which had
been bred for eggs for generations
back. Breed from the best layer?,
was his advices, and do not take
chances with eggs collected from
all the birds in the yard.
He gave' some useful hints bn
the so-called secrets of telling the
best layers, and in the best kinds
of feed to produce the best results.
Comparing incubators with the
sitting hen, he confessed to a
prefeaence for the latter, as generally rearing the strongest chicks. If
the same care were given the hen
which is expended on the machine,
there would be ao doubt as to the
superior results.
Dr. Jones' lecture on"Cultivation
of *5oils and Conservation of Moisture," proved to be highly interesting^ Scientific Agriculture, he Said,
Was still, in its infancy. Although
men had been tilling the soil from
remote ages, little had been known
until recent yean of the scientific
principles upon which,the growth
of crops depended. - Interest, however, was being tocuned upon the
subject; and- bur knowledge was
steadily increasing.' He sketched
the origin of toil from the disintegration of the solid rock of the
earth's crust by the faction of ice,
water, frost, and other agencies, to
the state in which its mechanical
condition and available plant food
which it contained, made it fit for
the reception of seed. The water
which a soil contained had a more
important bearing Upon its suitability for cultivation than was
generally realized.,, AU forms of
vegetation contained an overwhelming proportion of water; the
strawberry for example, haying in
its composition 94 per cent, of
Water. Thus in 100 lbs. of strawberries only 6 lbs. was solid matter,
the other 94 lbs. being water. And
not only that, but to produce one
pound of solid matter it was
necessary that from 300 to 500 lbs.
of water should pass through the
plant during its i period of growth.
Taking into account the enormous
quantities of water evaporated
from- the soil itself it could be seen
what a large amount of moisture
was necessary to the growth of
any1 crop.
Dh Jones had also a good deal
to tell his audience on the recent
discoveries'respecting the action of
bacteria in liberating nitrogen from
its compounds in the soil, and in
disinfecting or freeing the soil from
the poisonous toxins produced by
growing crops.
In conclusion, he declared that
much of the tedium and drudgery
of agricultural operations would be
lightened if the farmer could regard
his soil as a great laboratory, in
which his efforts were producing
wonderful chemical and physical
changes necessary to the development of plant life.
A hearty vote of thanks was
given to the lecturers at the conclusion of the meeting.
The same subjects were again
dealt .with the following evening at
South'Okanagan. -

Teams have been busy this
week hauling rock on to some of
the main streets. '
The recent heavy rains in the
mountains have caused the waters
of Mission Creek to rise considerably during the last two or three
days. /
The second quarter opened with
Armstrong agatn in the attack, and
it was not long before they drew
the Kelowna defence out and
again netted the ball. A goal to
Kelowna was disallowed owing to
some infringement. .
• On resuming ihe game the Kelowna boys saw that they* had to
make a big effort if they were to
pull down the lead of three goals,
and keeness began to creep into
the game. The play was vary fast
and the Armstrong defence had a
busy time of it, but succeeded in
keeping their goal iritact. The last
quarter gave the best exhibition'of
the evening, both sides working
hard, Kelowna trying to. even up
the score and Armstrong putting
on an extra defence man to keep
the home boys out. During some
exciting play in front of the Armstrong goal A. McMillan scored the
first tally for Kelowna.
Time was called with Armstrong
the winner* by 3 goals to Kelowna
I.       , ,
The Kelowna boys had a bitter
dose of medicine given them in
Vernon, but like medicine should
it did them good, and put fresh
energy and determination into
them for last Thursday's game.
The Vernon "All Stars " had not
the slightest doubt but what the
game would end like the previous '
one, but our boys knew different, "
though they did not express themselves so oprnly about it. The
Vernon supporters intimated that
they had only to win this match to
cinch their hold on the cup.
The lineup was as follows :-
Vernon Kefowna
Muir. Gdal Davik
Noble      V Point     H. Newby
Elliott       C Point   O. Holden
McKinnon    1st Defence   C McMillan

Whitmora Outside Home J. McCorkindale
McDonald    Inside Home    L. Pettigrew
Referee, W. Murray, Armstrong.
During the first part ofthe game
the Kelowna team did not give any '
evidence of the vim that they after- '
wards put into the game.   'The
Vernon team seemed to run about _
at will in the fitfld  and  this gave
their supporters the impression that
that they "would get another walk
over.   Shortly after the start Kennedy was given a rest on the fence
and no sooner had  he taken his~:
place again, than the refree thought'
he needed another rest.   (What,
was tbe matter   with   Kennedy's-   '
wind ?)  During Kennedy's second
period of -rest the Vernon team -
secured their first and only tally, a *

The second quarter developed" /
into a keener game and it was soon"
evident that the Kelowna boys had
the measure 'of the " All Stars"
though   the   Vernon   supporters
would~not be convinced and still
wanted to make the Kelowna supporters rich men with their tempting offers.   Holden got in the way
of. the refree's.eyes and had to take
a short period on the fence.   The"  \
Kelowna home, which up tb now,   "
had not really understood where'' • *
they had to put the ball, woke  up". j
and in quick succession, G. Fuller/ <
and- L.   Pettigrew   netted   goals.
The third quarter was pointless,
the.Kelowna defence hurling back. -
every attack of the Vemon  boys'
and made people wonder  how
they had scored their goals in the
first match.   The latter stages of
the game were full of interest, as
the keeness developed and  even
the spectators had- to take a hand
in the events.   Genial Charlie of	
Lawson's Ltd., played a prominent
part in a. pugilistic event, which
was not on the programme. Towards the end of the game L. Mc- .•
Millan decided to' show the fans
and also the "All Stars," that he
knew just what to do with the ball
and netted the 3rd goal for Kelowna.
The final score was, Kelowna 3,

W. C. T.U. M>tes.:
Conducted by the Lsdiea of the Kelowna branch
The.question of Local Option
will be>a prominent one in our city
next week in view of the fact that
the Okanagan District Temperance
Convention ia to be held here next
Tuesday, June 27th. There is no
doubt that many arguments for and
against this measure will be presented by people whose business
would affected by such legislation.
Thev wholesale and retail liquor
dealers find that Local Option is
very damaging to their exceedingly
profitable trade, hence their strong
opposition. Another class; who
accept very little if any responsibility for the moral conditions of the
community, and especially with
regard to those unfortunates who
are demoralized by an uncontrol-
able appetite for liquor, claim that
Local Option is a direct interference
with personalliberty. Others again,
wh<~ are as deeply interested in the
all-round welfare of the community
as any'can be, believe that the best
interests of the masses will be
served by taking away the special
privilege extended by the license
system to a, few, and granting to
none the right to trade for the sake
of pecuniary gain,, upon the depraved appetites of^men.ljto the
certain increase of poverty, misery
and unhappiness in their homes.
In the Temperance Convention
to be held in Kelowna next week,
an opportunity is afforded to all
people concerned about the highest
welfare of our Province, to learn
what is really, being effected by
Local Option in other places, and
what it may do for this Great West
Land as well. The people who are
behind this movement are sincere.
They would not advocate Local
Option if they did not know that
it would mean better conditions
socially and morally for all, and
for some very much happier home
surroundings. It is no way claimed
that Local Option is an ideal
temperance measure, but it is the
best that may be obtained and
looks towards Provincial Pro
hibition. Local Option is simply
a measure that gives the right to
each municipality [o decide by a
majority whether a limited number
of men shall have the legal right to
retail liqupr as a beverage. That
ought to be fair legislation with
respect to an issue of general
public interest.
A splendid programme for each
session of the Convention has been
arranged. The W. C. T. U. urges
all those interested in moral and
social reform to be present at every
10. This By-Law shall come into force
and take effect on the First day of August,
1911. -

Important arid drastic changes in
the lake service of the C. P. R. are
promised as a result of the recent
visit of H..W. Brodie, general passenger agient;^ Mr. Brodie, in discussing the situation with the press,
made it apparent that he was dissatisfied with the present schedule.
Most of the time at Okanagan
Landing is now employed in coaling, and it is necessary to handle the
coal in wheel barrows. It is announced that this difficulty will be speedily obviated by the installation of
coaling apparatus. With this improvement complete it will be possible
for the boat to .leave Penticton much
later inthe morning and still be in
ample time to make the necessary
train connections. While the new
schedule has not been made public
it is generally conceded that the
hour of departure from Penticton
will be shifted to 8 a.m., three hours
later than the present hour of leaving. This will bring the steamer into
Okanagan Landing shortly after 1
o'clock and it is probable that the
extra'run into the city will be done
away with. "Mr. Brodie was unable
to : state just when the changes
would be made but he gave every
assurance that they would be hastened. "It will be necessary to take
