, A meeting of the council was
held Saturday last, the mayor and
Aid. Leckie, Copeland and Cox
being present.
After the usual minutes had been

\second and third time.
By law No. 93, for the fixing of
the rate of taxation at 23$ mills, an
increase of half a mill on last year
was finally passed.
Mayor Sutherland stated that Mr.
E. Weddell, the owner of the land
required for the opening of St.
Paul Street through to Bernard
Avenue, had had-a deed prepared
and wished to be paid as soon as
possible, as he -was leaving the
city. Some doubt was expressed
as to the advisability of paying for
the land before the Court of
Revision had been held. The extension had been advertised and
no objection had been raised to
the work as a local improvement.
It'was decided to consult the city
solicitor in the matter. iV      ''
The meeting was then adjourned
until Wednesday morning at
10 a.m..
H The council met again Wednesday morning. The only business
was the introducing of By-laws 95.
and 96, which were local improvement by-laws for the construction
of the cement and wooden sidewalks. These were given a first
.and second'reading. _
•The   meeting   then   adjourned
until Saturday morning next.
Weed Seeds in
Imported Hay
■, A representative of the Record
had a conversation the other day
with Mr. C. E. Lawrence, of Kamloops, who is collecting data for
the Commission of Conservation
of the Dominion Government
conserve, said Mr. Lawrence,
until it knew what needed conserving, and so the work has been
divided under seven heads, Agri-
>. culture being the one in which he
was concerned.
"I am after information direct
from the agriculturalist himself.
He has the opportunity of telling
me all about his weeds, noxious
insects, want of water, want of
transpottation facilities, his own
and hia neighbours' misdeeds, and
anything else he considers a griev-
' ance and detrimental to his branch
of the industry. I am happy to
say complaints are a minimum, the
importation of weeds being the
greatest.   -
"I have to set before the Commission the opinion of the majority of
agriculturalists that grain should be
cleaned of all weed seeds by the
grower before shipping. The same
complaint is made of imporred hay
which comes to the livery barns
and is distributed thence in the
"This complaint seems to be
< well founded, as many weeds quite
new to the district are now flourishing finely in this genial climate.

Lawrence; " there was such a fine
country between the lake and the
mountains, and I enjoyed my drive
on Tuesday immerisely. I used to
think the Okanagan was boomed
too much. I think if I lived here
I might say as much as any of you,

7000  Men  Required for Big
Within three months seven thousand men will be at work between
Hope and Kamloops, contractors
now being busy getting outfits on
the ground.    ■»
The big task about to be undertaken will prove the largest since
the construction of the' Canadian
Pacific Railway, and will involve
an expenditure of from $15,000,-
000, to $ 18,000,000. The proximity of the existing railway on the
opposite bank of the Fraser will
be a great factor in enabling the
various sub-contractors to ship in
men, supplies,, horses, and outfits
including derricks,'steam shovels
and tunnel boring plants.
Within less than three months
seven thousand men will be required as it is proposed to finish
the entire contract within two
In all, tunnels aggregating 'over
three miles in length will: have to
be driven. The two longest will
be one of 2000 feet,near Yale arid
another of 2,400 feet through Battle Bluff, Kamloops Lake. There
will be many other tunnels ranging
in length from 200 to 700 feet.
• - The big tunnels will be driven
by machinery, the plants working
from both portals. The smaller
tunnels will be drived by hand. It
is expectdd that two years at least
will be occupied iu completing the
big bore at Batile bluff, in fact, the
date of the completion of the entire division will hinge upon the
driving! of the two long tunnels.
It is noteworthy that all the subcontractors own their own outfits
showing their capacity for handling
big contracts. They will also operate their own commissary stores.
The heavy character ofthe work is
said tb offer exceptional opportunities to station men, individual small
contractors who take sub-contracts
from tlie sub-contractors for small

one to three hundred feet. It is the

Great Loss of Life
in Ontario Fires
The terrible bush fires which
have wrought destruction and death
in the Porcupine District of north-
em Ontario have sent a thrill"of
horror throughout the entire Dominion. The exact extent of the
damage can only yet be roughly
estimated, but it is certain that
between 100 and 200 people have
lost their lives. Several .towns and
settlements have been completely
wiped off the map. The district
was a heavily-timbered mining
country, and the flames once
started, and fanned by a strong
wind, spread with astonishing
rapidity, enveloping the miners
before warning could be given;
Stories of the disaster are full of
the most harrowing details of the
struggles of unfortunate people to
escape from the heat and smoke.
Many rushed into the Porcupine
lake and stood up to their necks
in the water; but even there the
heat was so intense that scores
were overcome and drowned.
Others fled into the wilderness to
the northward, there to perish of
Millions of dollars worth of property has gone up in smoke and
thousands of people ate rendered

New Maps Issued
for Preemptors
In* accordance with the promise
made by Hon. William R. Ross
upon his acceptance of the administration of the Department df
Lands, there are now almost ready
for issue in the department the
first four of a series of pre-emptors'
maps bf available lands, surveyed,
which await colonization and development by new agricultural
settlers. These maps are based
very largely upon the results of the
activities oi the corps of surveyors
who have been employed in opening up the north of British Columbia, where the' field forces have
largely been concentrated of late
years in consequence of the assurance of early facilities of communication for. these areas through
Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian
Northern Pacific construction. The
mapping of these districts had
necessarily to await the con.pletion
of surveys and this explains the
non-appearance earlier of these
eagerly-awaited documents.
Of the maps now in hand, sheet
one deals' with the localities ~ in
Nechaco Township, and contiguous
to the Stuart River; sheet two
covers and delineates the locality
of the; Blackwater. Both of these
are now in the hands of the
printers and shortly to be issued.
Sheet three of rhe Fort George
locality is almost complete, and
sheet four, the Stuart Lake section,
is well under way.
The necessity for re-rrganization
of the system of land surveys and
classifications has long been recognized by the government. The
obviously desirable changes require,
time, but a beginning has been
made by the revision of the' instructions'this season issued to the
surveyors taking the field and. by
the appointment of an inspector of
surveys, in the;'person of Mr. W. S.
Drewry, at "present engaged on
a first official tour through. the

Kelowna to Have Squadron
of B.C Horse.
A meeting was held last Thursday evening in the offices of the
Okanagan Loan and Investment
Co. for the purpose of considering the organizing of a squadron
of the B.C. Horse at Kelowna. It
was decided to form a squadron
tor the district with a total strength
of about 74 men. Capt. G. H.

take command. A further meeting

The meeting  was arranged  very
A large number of delegates
were present, including the Rev.
D. J. Welsh, who represented the
Kelowna church.
The educational work begun by
the Baptists of British Columbia
will not only be maintained, it was
decided, but will be greatly
Okanagan College is to be maintained and enlarged according to
the actionof the session, and is to
get $30,000 within the next three
years, receiving $10,000 on the
first of each year. To forward
this work a committee of seven
were appointed to arrive at definite
ways and means of procuring the
funds. The committee named is as
follows: G. J. Denriess, E. B. Morgan, Dr. L. M. McKecknie, C. M.
Woodworth, Rev. D. J. Welsh, Dr.
Sawyer and D. G. Williams.
It was also agreed Saturday afternoon that the educational question
pf the Baptist church 6f British
Columbia will not be adequately
settled until there is an institutiou
established, especially for theological work. This institution, it was
suggested, should be a theological
seminary set up in the provincal
university soon to be established.
The convention expressed the
hope of having the Okanagan
College at Summerland recognized
by the provincial university and
have it made a fully accredited in-j,
stitution. This was thought advisable because it is very centrally
located for the west.and will be
made one of the strongest of die
colleges in this territory.
Rev. D. J. Welsh, B.A., read the
report of the committee of the
Baptist Young People's Union
session, in which he pointed put
the wonderful progress made in the
work, with the reasons why it
should be maintained and carried
on with added enthusiasm and
Errors   and  Omissions
Taking Census.
The census bureau has issued a
statement which tends to show
that the department is anxious to
correct errors and omissions made
by the enumerators. After explaining how mistakes are almost unavoidable in a work of such magnitude, the bureau invites the cooperation of the public in the
matter, it asks that persons who
believe or suspect that they are
not included in the census to
notify the chief officer of the
census at Ottawa, giving their
names and post-office addresses.
Such letters to the department
will be post free, and if it is found
that the persons who write are not
included steps will be immediately
taken through the local officer to
rectify the omission.
Contractors Lose Money
Coronation Stands.
En°rmou* sutnto of money were
lost on spectarow stands built for
the recent coronation processions.
Vlthough exact figures are difficult
to obtain, it is known that the
losses practically spelled complete
ruin for many builders of the more
expensive stands. On coronation
Day itself the stand owners did
not do badly, as the main procession wasja better drawing card than
the secondary one, and the route
was barely a mile and a half long
On'the day of the " Royal Progress," however, the route was
nearly seven miles in length and
seats lined practically its whole
distance, Those for which five to
six guineas ($25.20 to $30.24)
apiece was originally asked, were
sold generally at the last rnoment
for three shillings (72 cents). It is
estimated {hat the owners could
not take less that $2.20 per seat
without losing money.
hurriedly, and very little notice
given. In consequence, the entries
were small and only a few races
were run at all.
The match race, the leading
event of the day, was delayed for
nearly two hours until some difficulty was adjusted as to the proper
weight of Casorso's rider. Dr.
Knox , and Messrs. Barlee and
Lambley were selected as judges,
and Mr. Cross, who is an experienced race man consented to act as
official starter.
Royal King, owned by Casorso
Bros, proved too much for his
jockey, .Walter Haynes, arid ran
away a half .mile. Doi} E.. Fuller's
horse, ridden by young Thompson
was exceptionally aood at the start
After some more delay the horses
were off, Don E. gaining the lead
at the first eighth of a mile, and
won easily.
The' pony race was a contest all
the way, Haynes winning first
The harness race between Mr.
J. Cameron's favorite and Gillis
Hunjford's Bob Casey was easy for
The quarter-mile race between
Pinkie, A. Albers* sorrel horse, and
another good runner, was a close
contest, Pinkie winning by half a
length under the expert piloting of
Alwyn Weddell.
y The second heat, of thej^rtatch
racks; was disappointing; The starter
was instructed by Felix Casorso to
let them off first chance even if
Royal King was behind, fearing
another runaway. Don E. leading
at the start quickly increased his
lead and again won. easily. The
poor start caused considerable
uproar amongst the spectators.
Mr. Lambley who rode Royal
King at Pentictpn wanted to call it
no race. Mr. Barlee agreed with
him, but Dr. Knox felt that he was
duty bound to give the race to the
horse that came in first, after receiving an official start and concluding the heat with no faults.
The total receipts from the meet-
were about fifty dollars, half of
which will go to the up-keep of
the track and the rest to expenses
arid prize money.
Owing to some apparent dis-
contint with the judges* dicision
in the second heat of the match race
Dr. Richards wrote, after the races
to Mr. Wellman, the principal
judge at the Minora Park racecourse, Vancouver, and explained
the circumstances. The answer
was wired back last night and read
"Don E. the winner; no doubt
about decision."
Election Rumors.
The Dominion Parliament resumed work on Tuesday after the
adjournment taken to enable Sir
Wilfrid Laurier tp attend the
Imperial Conference and Coronation ceremonies. The belief ia
expressed in both parties that a
general election is probable within
six weeks at die latest after the
session opens. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
states that he would welcome an
appeal to the people on the reciprocity pact and is sure that it
will pass.
The impression is that the general elections will be held during
the last week in September. Parliament will sit for three or four
weeks, dissolving about the middle
of August. The date of voting
will then be fixed for the interval
between the end of harvest and
the arrival of the Duke of Connau-
ght as governor general. His Royal
Highness will reach Montreal on
October 12th and the government
wants to have the business well
over, and things running smoothly
by that time. The signing of the
dissolution order is likely

The concert organised by the
Baptist congregation last Thursday
for the purpose of raising funds for*
the purchase of an organ proved a
big success. The schoolroom was
crowded to its fulll;apacity. Several
rigs full of Kelowna people drove
out in the afternoon and evening,
the fine weather making their trip
a most enjoyable one.
Ice-cream and strawberries were
served in the afternoon under the
shade of the pine trees, a large
number of people being, present
to share in the fun. .
The evening concert should have
been presided over by Mr. A. W.

fcrt. Than, Ono Has Twenty Fingers
to Make Up the Lost, Fingers of the
Hand and Fingers of the Foot—Oddities of the Verb "to Walk."
The Englishman or American lo
Portugal who thinks In his own l*_n<
goafs and tries to speak In tbe language of the country he Is visiting is
"a igreat' smile producer.
For Instance, you never marry any*
body In Portugal unless—strange parados—yon happen to be a priest You
scarry "with" your beloved Maria, and
bie priest •mnrrlp you both. In the
same way you never dream about anybody,-but always "with" them.
Whenthe landlady at your boarding
bouse Is ladling out your soup you
Call Mt? "Arrive." You ere telling
her to arrive at tbe stopping point—ln
other words, that you don't want more
than she has put out. When, you see
a child that you want to fondle at the
ether side of the room you say to her,
-••Arrive.here." And the.child promptly "arrives."
In England when w^ speak of walking we refer to a certain use of the
legs. But the Portuguese verb "to
Walk" has many more significations.
In Portugal not only do the people
walk, but also the carts and cars walk,
the trains walk! a balloon walks, and
a boaf walks. Stranger still, the
hands of a clock walk round the" facet
A'clock, by'the way7 never goes; it
Unless you are v^ry Intimate or very
rude you never say to your fair partner at dinner, "Will you have some
bread?" etc You inquire, "Will your
excellency.uave soma bread?" or, "Will
' the lady have some bread?" the "lady"
., m'eaMng'rtbt'some other lady, but your
fair partner herself. '
In spite af winter you are never cold
In Portugal unless you are a corpse.
You are "with" cold In the same
way you are occasionally "with" heat,
"with" headache, "with" hunger or
••with" thirst When you have occa-
alon to discuss tbe weather you say,
"It 'makes' cold." "It 'makes' fog."
etc. On your way borne fron*. an entertainment* you tell 'your companion
that It 'lakes'" 'dark. v
If speaking of her husband a wife
says he is a "tame" man She merely
means that he Is n man of peace and
Justice- _, .
The word "house" means more than
with us. Your buttons share your own
-privilege of living In a bousa The
, buttonholes are, .called^ ^ouggs^(o£
tbe buttons." Tbe squares on"a chess?
board are ateo "houses." You .don't

Items from Ellison
(From our own correspondent.)
Mrs. Bulman and daughters are
going to Winnipeg for the summer.
People are looking round our
benches for improved farms, and
big prices are being refused.
The experts say that if they had
land like ours in the fruit-growing
districts of America it would be
$2,000 per acre instead of $1,000,
yet the best land here can be
bought for half that price.
Our Mr. Whitaker is taking
charge of the organ at the Methodist Church at Rutland during the
absence of Mr. Clarke who has
gone to the coast to recuperate.
Now a certain man had a drove
of pigs, and one of them said unto
his mother, " Behold, this valley
wherein we live is dry, and the
herbage is scant, therefore will 1
hike out and rustle for myself, lest
the herdman, even he that is called
Jack, sticketh me with a knife and
so cause thee, my dear mother,
much sorrow ; " and he departed
during the silence of the night
watches into a far country.
And a certain man named
" Mikus " had a ranch on the road
that leads from Kel-ow-na to Vernon, in the north country; and the
land of that ranch exceeded in
fatness, so that the porcine prodigal said unto himself," Ha ! Ha !!
here will I dwell and grow fat, and
pass away my life in ease and good
Now " Mikus " spread the news
around that a strange porker had
joined his drove in the meadow of
clover; and the word coming
unto Jack in the valley called
" Dry," he went over and said : " 1
think the pig is mine; yes. I'm
sure  the  pig is  mine;   therefore
will 1 cut it and put my mark on
his ear. And he did so, but he
left the quadruped to feed on the
fat lands of his neighbour" Mikus,"
which was a rich thing to do.
Now when the harvest days
came, "Mikus," who doeth all
things generously, said unto his
household and menservants : "Verily, after the hay is safely gathered
in I will make unto you a feast,
and there shall be much meat,
Irish lemons, pies, cakes ar.d fruits
of the earlh that may be in season,
and lots of good stuff to wash it
Then spake up one of his hired
servants, even he that bloweth into
a bag and hollow sticks, thereby
making the sweet sounds so dearly
loved by the hardy men men who
weareth the kilt instead of pants,
" Let us kill the fatted pig, even
the stranger pig, for he is fat and
juicy and we, the servants of the
household, like lucious pork better
than tough beef. And " Mikus"
said " Yea, it shall even so be."
And the final scenes in the life of
the prodigal are now close at hand.
The Coming Regatta
A meeting of the management
of the Aauatic Association was
held Tuesday evening last to make
final arrangements for the forthcoming Regatta which is to be
held on Wednesday and Thursday
August 9th and 10th. The programme as arranged shows many
improvements and additions over
last year. Excursions will be run
from outside points both days of
the Regatta. On Wednesday a
train will leave Enderby at 7 a. m.
bringing visitors from that place
and Armstrong and Vernon, etc,,
who will return from Kelowna
about 8 o'clock in the evening. On
Thursday there will be a similar
excursion from Penticton and
points down the lake. A great
convenience will be found in the
fact that the fare and a third will
be good for five days.
Happiest Girl in Lincoln
A Lincoln, Neb., girl writes, "1 had been
ailing for some time with cronic constipation and stomach trouble. I began taking
Chamberlain's Stomach and Liver Tablets
and in three days I wets able to be up and
got better right along. I am the proudest
girl in Lincoln to iind such a good medicine."   For sale by all dealers.
An Equal Chance
One of the features of the. Canadian Government Annuities system which highly commends itself
to every person, is that a man who
is middle aged enjovs equal advantages with the man who starts at a
younger age, for he may; by the
payment of a lump sum equivalent
to the total amounts which hewould
have paid had he entered at the
earlier age, go on from his present
age at the same rate as if he had
begun at an earlier age. For example, a man of 40 who has decided to purchase an annuity of
$500 pays $1,593.25, which is the
equivalent of what he would have
paid during the years from 20 to
40. He will now continue to pay
$50.05 each year until he is 60,
instead of $167.10, which is the
rate which a man entering at 40
would have to pay for an annuity
of $500 to begin at 60.
A school teacher who has just
called in a twenty year endowment
policy has made the application of
this amount on a $500 annuity
contract,' a most provident dispos-1
ition of a portion of his money. If
he dies before he is sixty, the total
amount which he pays up to the
time of hi3 death with 3 per cent,
compound interest will be returned
to his legal representatives.
A supply of interesting literature
concerning the Annuities Scheme
mav be had on application to the
Superintendant of Government
Annuities, Ottawa to whom letters
go free of postage.

the Daily Chronicle to give publicity to similar untruths.. The case

eagerly consented. The captain was

Strenuous Times In Getting Out an
Early French Work.
Many adventures befell the French
eighteenth century encyclopedia. Moiv
than oueo the production of that work,
regarded by 'authority as revolutionary, had beeu stopped, eight days of
imprisonment in the Bastille for the
printer being one incident. At the
very last inomei/t, after Diderot had
corrected the Until proofs, the printer
aud his foreman secretly slashed the
articles right and left, cutting out
everything tbat seemed even possibly
dangerous, and burned the manuscript Diderot discovered the atrocity too late when referring to oue of
his own mutilated articles. But the
uiost remarkable point is that for
years very few persons knew of what
had happened, even tbe contributors
remaining in Ignorance. They hud
had enough of their own articles wheu
writing them.
Voltaire tells a pleasing story of
Louis XV.'s conversion to the merits of tbe encyclopedia, according to
the Loudon Chronicle. The talk one
iiight at a Trianon supper turned" ou
sport and theuce to gunpowder, as to
the composition of whlcb the party
could not agree. Mine, de Pompadour
lamented their all round Ignorance.
For Instance, she herself did uot know
what her rouge was made of or how
her' silk hose were manufactured.
" 'Tls a pity," said the Due de la Val-
Here, "that his majesty confiscated our
encyclopedias, which cost us 100 pistoles."
The king recalled that be had a
copy, and three valets were sent for
the tweuty-oue volumes and staggered
back with seven each. Gunpowder,
rouge, silk stockings, were all found
there. Some found answers to legal
problems that' troubled them. Thf
king discovered the rights of his
crown set forth, and ln bis satisfaction
