Mayor Sutherland announced for
the benefit of Ald.r Jones, who had
just returned from the coast, that
Mr. Hancock, the consulting engineer, engaged by the council to enquire into the matter of a sewage
system, had been in town during
the past week, and had arranged
;to give a preliminary report at gn
early date. ;' Mr. y Parkinson; w»|
'■_ Agetting out certain levels iif cOteiS;
■' : nectiortiwith the- matter, and; wheiffr
this was done Mr. Hancock wotJjloV
be able to submit his report.
■''■ city, however,  did not intend .at
' this stage to tie themselves toany
particular report." A
A letter, was   read    from   the
• Taylor-Forbes CompWny bf Van-"
couver, who had been written to
with respect to an- incinerator plant,
.stating they were taking the question upsand-would^ioryytard fullj
particulars in aiew days^      yj>
"A pf&n of ;aJ sub-divi8io^rpf l_of
5, Block 10, Map 315 was  submit-:
ted  to the  council, but  referred
back owing to the fact that certain
. necessary lanes had been omitted.
Mr. Clement's plan of subdivision
; of Blo^43,'Map4£2|was pawed/)
The mayor also f efeired to the
.Tant of $300  which  had   been
made to assist the usersof irrigation
"water?on the.north side of  the
creek.   He had, he said, been approached during the week by the
i people-on thi* South' sideAfoi* a
\ small grant to repay them fbr work
which they had done in connection
f with their ditch.   They had done
"Work to the extent of $60, and
were asking for that amount from
.the council,   He had not gone into
the matter himself and  didl  not,
:' know what.work had been done. 7
. ^sJBoi&e of IjHe/ airmen thought
~|fce jcoyijcil had.." better ...'xnalcejen-
^llrief-£s<tathe nature ofthework
• done before tonsidering a grant.
-Mr?P.!B. Willits, who: had acted
, as spokesman  in. making the ap-
_plication,- .was ^accordinglyt telephoned for.   He said the parties
who were interested in the ditch
on the south side bf the creek had
spent $60 in cleaning out the old.
ditch ahd re-building some thirty-
'. five or forty-yards ot fluming.   The
work' had been well   done   and
should last for ten years.     The
ditch also was in good condition.
Aid. Copeland suggested that it
would be as well to leave the
question of a grant open at present
as they might possibly be able to
save sufficient out of the #300 al-
- ready granted to cover, the application.
A committee meeting  of   the
whole council was arranged  for
Friday, morning to consider   the
sprinkling by-law and other matters
; Mayor Sutherland said that as
the Court of Revision had how held
its 'setting; the ■ various committees
.   should endeavor to  get out their
estimates as soon  as possible, in
order that the.council might strike
the rate of taxation for the:, year.
A letter was read from Mr. G. A.
.   Fisher, 6esretary bf the Boafd _ of
Trade as follows.
Dear Sir:
At the last meeting of the Board of
Trad* a motion was made and carried
that the city should be asked to enlarge
their wharf and make an approach to
it, the present arrangement being too
small, as also the wharf. It was pointed out that owing to the present inadequacy it had been recently necess-
. ary to unload and pile large quantities
of cement pipe adjoining Hayman's
ferry, a plac* which littered with iftat-
erial, detracts from the appearance of
the park, emphasizes the necessity for
a better wharf.
Will you kindly bring this matter before the mayor and council.
Yours "truly;     >'   ■'■■.
G. A. FISHER,
Secretary, Kelowna Board   of  Trade.
; Aid. Jones remarked the matter
had been discussed.at the Board of
Trade^oii account of the fact that
at present quite a quantity of
material of all kinds was being
brought over the lake. There was
at ^present no; place Ho land it
except, at Hayman's wharf, which
was very small and altogether iiv
adequate. As the city wharf seemed to provide ample accommodation, the idea was for the city to
bring it into practical use by having
an approach made from each side,
i^lj^t 7tea|&3;^c6uld drivfe round
to-tbadiandiunlpaidr He had himself been down and inspected the
place since then; and there seemed
to be some considerable difficulties
in the way )oi bringing thewharf
into\use. ', Some additions, would
ihave; to p^jnaTde" to the7wharf
itself which would need widening.
.Aid. Leckie, said he was afraid
the wharf .had not been much use
to the city. He did not know what
had been the idea in building it. It
Seemed.to have been something in
connection withj the power house,
{as it headed- right into that
.building. ■'-     A. .7
Aid. Jones said that the trade
across the lake-would be .certairtrto
developte in the future.^hd tha «ity
should do everything tb enqourage
it.    ■■       ■-'•■■■- ;    ;. .•-'-■--•—■■•-.-  ■
It was felt, however, that nothing
could-be done in the matter then,
and the question was laid aside fbr
Jjthe. prf sent., •: -•- a- . y-t-. ■.'.
7 Maydr.i Sutherland7said his attention had' been drawn to the
number of little shacks which were
sidatteired around the power house.
They look very bad and should be
cleared out. -,
, Aid. Jones agreed that the,shack's
should by all jneans be 'cleared off
the city property. The presence
of shacks meant the accumulation
of rubbish, bottles and cans, which
kept the grounds of' the power
house in an untidy state.
"The mayor suggested that the
Board.of Works take-action towards
having   the.,   ujisightly    structures
re^OVejI.s * A V .    '■'*-.        \
Aid; Leckie " brought. up the
question of a rock crusher. He said
there had*been some talk" of the
city purchasing one, but he thought
it would be much cheaper for the
city andTaiso for Vernon if they
made some arrangements to hire
the crusher belonging to the latter
city for a certain time each year.
A rock crusher,was,a. thing which
was not constantly in use, and
would only be' required a short
time each year.
Aid. Jones thought the Board of
Works should submit estimates of
the cost of a crusher to the council.
It was certainly essential that the
city should have good roacls, and
if it could afforded he would like
to see the city own a rock crusher.
He spoke enthusiastically of tlie
vast street improvement which wns
going on in Vancouver. Thry
used crushed rock and a steam
roller, and the surface produced
was extremely hard with & surface
like asphalt. At the same time
they might,see if it were possible
to rent the crusher.from Vernon.
Mayor Sutherland told of the
disaster which had .befallen the
committee which had started off in
a motor boat during the week lo
.inspect a rock .pile on the other
side ofthe lake, with arc eye to
judging of its suitability, forjond
work. Oh rearing the other beach,
however, the^tJoat itself -evidently
animated by a similar desire to
test the quality of the road material
there, had Struck a rock, which so
bent the propellor that it had been
necessary to bring the boat home
again—stern first—without giving
the committee a chance to carry
out their object.   Nor did that com
plete the sum total of  their   woe
for on attempting to   land   at  the
Kelowna side,  His  Worship   had
taken   an   involuntary   bath inthe
lake.
Aid. Copeland said that in grading some of the streets lately it l\ad
been necessary to cut down deep
at the sides in some places. Several
people hjftl been asking to have
crossing8S made so that they could
drive in and out of their places,
and he would like to know if that
was cily work..
Mayor Sutherland said that in
the past where the roads had been
graded down/the' city had followed
the practice of putting in crossings.
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday next, May 27.

Important Improvements in
Local Service
Mr. J.'S. McDoilald, general inspector of "telephones and telegraphs in the west, was in town
Saturday to Monday on business
connected with the government
lines in the Valley. Owing to the
resignation of Mr. Stevens, of
Summerland, who was superintendent for the Valley, Mr. McDonald will remain in the district
until the vacancy is filled.
Taking advantage of his visit a
deputa'tion froni the Kelowna Board
of Trade consisting of Messrs. R.B.
Kerr, W. Haug, W. A. Pitcairn, B.
McDonald, D. W. Sutherland. 5. T.
Elliott and the secretary, G. A.
Fisher, ..waited on Mr. McDonald at
Mr. Millie's local telephone office..
The deputation were anxious lo
secure several improvements to the
local telegraph system, including
the extensioni of the C. P. R.'s sys-
tpm'pf night lettegrams along: the
government wites to Kelowna/ The
fact bf the C. P. R; telegraph system
stopping short at Vernon, leaving
the government .to complete the
connection to Kelowna, was -productive of several anomalies which
worked to the disadvantage of this
city. Mr. McDonald., promised tb
use his influence with the'authorities.
in the matter.
One good result of Mr. McDonald's visit has been the making
of Kelowna ,a " repeating office "
for telegrams .from points down the
lake. All messages frbm the south
have had hitherto? to be telephoned
to,-Vernon, sometimes holding th'e
trunk wire for a considerable time
and cgusingpdelay. to .persons here
who'wishedto .telephtJne'to Vernon.
Now the messages from Penticton,
Summerland and other places down
the lake will be 'phoned to Kelowna
andifronuhsre-transmittsd unon tne
old iron wire to Vernon, reserving
the new copper circuit which was
installed last year for telephone
business only. Hln a short time, we
understand, the government will
run a new copper wire to Penticton,
thus giving.the district south a
telegraphic service;

Town and Country
It is a wise law which prevents
boys fooling around with guns.
Last week a youth under 16 was
hauled up to the couit house and
fined $2 and his gun confiscated
for carrying firearms while "unaccompanied by his father or
guardian."
Mrs. Frank Richter, of Keremeos
was a visitor in town last weekend.
Mr. Robt. Hume left last weekend for Viking, Alta, which is some
80 miles from Edmonton. The
trip was necessitated by the death
of his brother.

The danger of smoking in a
crowded grandstand has been
pointed out times without number,
and some day we shall be receiving a sharp lesson on the foolishness of the practice. Yesterday,
during the races a lady had a hole
burnt in her dress from someone
carelessly throwing a lighted match
or the stub of a cigarette on it.
There was a similar occurrence last
Fall Fair. If a man cannot sit an
hour or two without smoking when
his indulgence is a danger to the
public he should quit altogether.
Mr. H. H. McLeay left Wednesday for the east.
Large numbers of men have been

Queer People Finding Homes  In
Big   Cities.
"Canada for the Canadians" may
be an excellent slogan for political
meetings, but perhaps "Canadians for
Canada" should prove an even better
rallying cry, whether we take it as a
sermon in a nutshell on true patriotism arid altruism, or apply it to the
consideration of the mighty stream of
immigrants pouring in at our gates.
In these multitudes from east and
west and south we. are. unquestionably getting population for our vast
empty acres, but are we getting, at
least potentially, "Canadians for Canada"? In our dealings wjyi the new-
' comers are we taking pains to ensure that ultimately they shall be
"Canadians for Canada," and not a
mere incoherent *nob of alien peoples? • '      ' '       ""
Everywhere throughout the Dominion, alike in east and west, this ia
the insistent problem of our time.
The big cities are face to face with
the problem. They are fast becoming
cosmopolitan—cities of little "foreign
quarters," where immigrants of one
race can cling together and retain
for years their peculiar speech and
customs, not at. all to the advantage
of the community as a whole. We
of the English tongue feel mild curiosity, or perhaps a little repulsion,
when we are jostled in streets and
cars by people whose rapid speech is
to .our ears' unmeaning, .and, -as a
rule, we escape quickly from contact
with them and leave them to struggle
on as they can, making or marring
this new country as may chance.
Unless our attention has been called specially to the foreigners, it is
not easy to' realize what multitudes
of them have recently settled in our
midst.. Jews and Italians in Toronto,,
for instance, may be counted by thotu
sands, and the group from the Balkan
Peninsula (Turks, Roumanians, Servians,- Bulgarians and Macedonians)
numbers over fifteen hundred souls.
They are chiefly of the peasant class,
working as laborers, though amongst
them have come a few tradesmen and
a few students, who are attending
various schools and colleges. The
great majority are illiterate; and have
been brought up in a religious and
political atmosphere very different
from our own. It is, therefore, no
easy matter to bridge the dividing
gulf between them and us, and at
times these immigrants must suffer
grievously from the effects jon our
ignorances and their own.
Some of the small bouses oh Eastern avenue are crowded with Macedonians, who work with pick and
shovel till the_frost .forces them to
be idle. Not all become destitute, but
they live miserably* As many as
seventy herd together in one small
house, sleeping in rows on mattresses
picked up from "the dump," cooking
in the little yards on ruie fireplaces:
built.of loose bricks, tearing out this
woodwork of the old houses when in
desperate straits.for fuel, but generally' behaving themselves .with due r»^
gard to law and order as represented in the person of a sympathetic
and benevolently-disposed police officer on the beat, who listens patiently
to their efforts at English and is at
pains to pick up something'of their
tongue. Occasionally, when one of
them is in luck's way, they get in a
barrel of lager beer and try to forget
theurtroubles ina carousal. At such
times the - whim: may seize them to
turn out from the suffocating, overcrowded houses into the clear, starlit
night, and then, hand in hand; they
will circle round like children in
some strange dance' of their far-distant native land, breaking the stillness with weird songs and, the thumping of their heavy boots on the old
wooden sidewalks. But two years ago
the situation grew desperate. Helpless from their inability to communicate with those about them, work for
them was hot to be had, in a season
when at the best there is little demand for unskilled labor, and at
length the authorities deported a
large number of them.
A Veteran Councillor.
Pitzroy Township, in Oarleton
County, claims the honor of having
the oldest municipal servant in Canada from the point of Bervice. Tha
distinction belongs to Reeve Charles
Mohr. who is just entering upon his.

Council.
There was a time when "Charlie
Mohr, as his associates and intimates call him, hnd to battle for supremacy at the polls, but on account
of his long record the electorate in
Fitzroy deem it n privilege to return
the veteran reeve by acclamation.
There is occasional talk about opposition, but it is only in jest. Reeve
Mohr has been so long in the saddle
that no one dreams of contesting his
election, and if they did the support
accorded would scarcely make up a
corporal's guard. The township takes
more pride porhaps out of the reeve's
record than Mr. Mohr himsaU.
No County Council session would ba
complete without the Fitsroy representative. His genial countenance
and sterling character make hia presence ever welcome. ' And when it
comes to rules and regulations he is
the authority of last resort. Despite
hia age, Reeve, Mohr is one of tha
most active members .of the council,
and tha warden's annual banquet
never winds up without hie participation in "Auld Lang Syne," no matter how late the hour.
MILLION ACRE FARMS.
Strange  Origin  and   Improvement  of
Australian Merinos.
0. E. W. Bean, of Sydney, has written in an Australian paper of the
great sheep industry, fiis story is in
part as follows:—     ft
A century ago, when Australia was
a dumping ground■.., for England's
Scorn, a British fleet received from a
Spanish fleet a present of merino
sheep, at a time when to export merinos from Spain w,.a a criminal offence. The little flock reached Australia, and from it aie descended-the
hundred million merinos which have
made Australia great and wealthy,
despite her small population.
Vastly improved is the modern merino, for the original of 31-2 pounds
to -a fleece has been raised to 12
pounds, and there aie rams in Australia which shear 40 pounds.
Nowadays the good land near the
ooaet is being given jver to agriculture, and the sheep ure driven "hack
further into the desort. A terrible
desert it is at times, where not one
green leaf can be seen, when the red
dust with which it is covered gets
blown away—and only the bare hard
bones ofthe earth are ljft. Then sheep
die by the million for want of the
smallest scrap of nourishment, and
are sometimes killed )y the thousand
because it is hopeless to expect to
keep them alive.
Then comes the rain, and as if by a
miracle the whole land is green again,
the flocks increase out of all bounds,
and the men who have been aearly
ruined, make new fortunes in a few
years. That is happening now. From
1896 to 1903 occurred the biggest
drought known, and many station-
holders lost their all. Since then
there has been-a steady succession
of good seasons and the problem now -
is what to do with the enormous overplus, of old ewes. Such are the vicis-'
sdtudes of that strange land, the oldest
part of the earth's exposed surface.
Some of the great sheep runs cover
a million acres, or about 1,660 square
miles. Each run is divided into paddocks, which cover all Australia. The
average western paddock -contains 100
square miles. If one fence .is on the
horizon behind; the other is over the
horizon ahead. You could walk till
you died in that paddock without seeing a fence. Lost men have before
now found the fence and, died, alongside of it before it led them anywhere.
There may be a hut in each paddock with . a boundary rider—sometimes two, living together. Everyday
except Sunday, the .boundary rider is
expected -to be out" in - his paddock.
About one day in two. he may spot
something lfke a line of posts, which
is probably a line of sheep in mirage
on the horizon. Occasionally he cuts
through awing of them. He sees. a.
man, or gets a mail, perhaps, once in
three, weeks. And yet, the boundary
men get to like the lonely life. *
Then, there is "the boss," the lord
of many acres, a man of strong character and a liberal education, living a
life4 not' unlike that of an English
country gentleman, in his remote
home, but carrying on his work with
the ability and keenness of a man
who has been trained in business.
The third body of men who live by
the rfieep industry are the shearers,
who work through the country from
north .to south, making plenty of
money, 'and Jiving in a rough way ori
the fat of the land as they pass from
one shed to the other. They are a
class unlike any other:
7or Heavy Eaters. •
Domestic science seems to tw owning to its own in the schools and colleges, but still some big husky octsn
express a preference for tha "old-fashioned home cooking." And W» ind*
dents like the following that make
them poke fun at the new ordar fat:

girl who was giving the city its first

' The  Policeman's Dangerous Life.
About one in every six London
policeman is injured during the year.
More-.than one thousand men were
on'.the'sick-°list from injuries received
while On duty, and nearly seven
hundred more who were injured off
duty. Some of the cases were* so
serious as to disable the men for a
week or more, and these amounted
to no fewef than 677. Besides these,
there were twice as many injured less
severely, who were not placed on the
sick list.—
The following examples show tlie
multiplicity of dangers to which the
police are exposed: 2,266 men were
assaulted or injured when making arrests; 102 bitten by dogs; 51 hurt by
persons not arrested; 17 injured while
dispersing disorderly crowds; 44
hurt.^some very severely, when stopping runaway horses; 21 injured
when "assisting "faiien or restive
horses; 26 kicked, trodden on, or
knocked down by horses; 31 injured
(14 very severely) by vehicles when
regulating traffic; and 28 were injured when extinguishing fires.
And a further large number suffered injury by their horses falling or
throwing tbem, by cyclists, while riding their own bicycles, at fire drill,
by slipping and falling when examining premises, etc., so that the'
total of injuries while on duty for
the year is brought up to 3,310.
*     An Honest Man.
par-
A preacher near Bloomsbury, Eng.,
grew fervent in exhorting to an honest
living, and near the close of his sermon he,said: "Let every person in
the house who is paying his or her
debts Btand up." Instantly every
man and woman in the house, save
one, was standing. After they were
peacefully seated, the domini asked:
"Now let those stand up who are not
paying their debts," und a lone lean
man of sixty or more years, clothed
in a seedy suit of the past decade,
slowly assumed a perpendicular position iri hiB pew. "How is it, my
friend," enquired : the minister in
austere tone, Vtlint you are the only
one in this intelligent congregation
who. does not meet his obligations?"
The lanky individual meekly answeh
,cd, "I run a newspaper, and the
hrethren here are my subscribers,
and"—the minister bioke in abruptly
with,'"We will close with the bene-*
diction."

Defends Vaccination
Dr. Fagan Declares • Operation
Perfectly Safe A
_______________ '. *'* •
In view of the storm of protest
•which was recently aroused as* a
result of an order frorn the Provincial Board of Health making
vaccination compulsory, a pamphlet has just been issued by Dr. G.
J. Fagan, secretary of." the provincial board.
.After briefly sketching the history
of. small pox and the.circumstances
which led up to Jenher's diacovdry
inthe Utter part of the 18th century
of the protection from ihe dread
disease afforded by innocutatipn
with "variloac vaccinae" or cowpox,
Dr. Fagan says: "Vaccination is
a process of transmitting by ipn.oc-
ulation a mild disease known as
" vaccinia," " cow-pox," or modi-
fied,small-pox, either from animal
to animal, from animal to man, or
from man to man.-: In past days
all of these sources have been used,
but unfortunately a small percentage of evil results were in evidence.
As a result, humanised vaccine is
not now used, and the calf vaccine,'
purifiedand protected by glycerinef
is the present virus, and givesthe
^utmost protection with the least
evil results.
"Cleanliness in vaccinating is a
necessity, antTits want has causcd7
much -trouble   and.; has   brought;
severe but imjust criticism on ;yac-;
cination.     The   physician   has  a,
'duty wHich includes'not only strict;
cleanliness Br the operation,'but",
the giving of directions and Warn:'
ing as-to quiet/and ^cleanliness to'
the   patient ' Strict   attention   tq-
small  details * as '-above   indicated
will  remove  many  objections  to
generaL.vaccination.....,,-.-: .   . \%
y" Gor^plicatipris maj. follow vac-^
cination in unheallhy.subjects or as
the result of uncleanlin.ess.   There
may  also  follow   certain   rashes,
many of which may be avoided by
care.   The transmission of disease
has unfortunately taken* place, but
with present-day. methods and the
use  of- calf  in  place   of   htiman
lymph, the danger of transmission
need,not be considered.
Until late in the nineteenth
century, vaccine was derived chiefly from human vesicles and either
used at once- ~ ~
&—. arm to
arm  —or
preserved. in,, various ways. The
vaccine obtained from' human
souire was good for vaccination
purports, "but unfortunately sometimes conveyed disease. Because
of-this&the. use of humab vaccine is
abandoned-.arid caif vaccine ia how
used.''   ... A; "'A-fij-A ■'
-The animals used for tKe'pJro-
ductipnj';p"f vaccine are/calyfis, br
heifers iit the age; usually ^ of, three
tb7 six ^months. The animals'"'"-aire
exarT-uned as. to health, and when
the vaccine is produced ancf col-
lac^dd,. they are killed and.again
examiried. This method ojf producing vaccine is now universally
accepted," ''«nd experience' has
^proved its reliability and purify."
Statistics.arc £iven showing'the
marked difference of the vaiccihat-
ed and the unvaccinated in*-their
susceptibility to small pox, and the
enormously greater percentage of
deaths in the latter class amdngst
those whp: have contracted -the
disease.    ._■•■ -.-- >-•-';'' ..„.
7 "Nothing.done by human beings
concludes Pr. Fagani.j_>"is entirely
withoijtr-iiisk, but the ri?ks djf yacci-
natiorj have been and ar*e^greatly
exaggerated. The English; *Kbyal
Commission made most:- careful
^searchlfpr 'injuries resulting*, fjom
vaccination, and after the "fullest
consideration arrived at7th$^con~
'clusion th§t such injuries are " insignificant " and "diminishing" and
can Be still further diminished. So
insignificant are they that vaccina-
.tionjs nowhere more nearly universal than in. the families ofmedical
men,- whp| love their children as
other metftdo, and who know much
bettgjf than. "Other men the safety
and protefctiori afforded by vacci-
