Meeting of City Council
Rate of Taxation May be Fixed at 23£ Mills - Money By-laws
Finally .Passed by Council
A meeting of the City Council
was held Saturday last at the usual
hour,,the mayor, Aldermen Leckie,
Copeland and Cox being present. '
The minutes were first read .and
.,    Mr. C. G. Clement waited on the
[. council in regard to the sub-division
bf Block 40, the plan of which had
been referred back to the owners
by a previous meeting owing to its
not complying with the regulations
the   matter   of   streets.    Two
m        . .__.  „.
■" blind " str :ets were shown which
.it was pointed out, might some day
bring the city up against a similar
proposition as had arisen  in the
case of St. Paul Street.    As there
did  not  seem   any   prospect, of
/arranging with the owners of adjoining   blocks   to ^continue   the
!i streets    through   their    -property,
'Mir. Clement suggested sacrificing
several   lots in7 .birder-Jtq)run   a
street at fight angles to.the blind
'Streets,,thus  connecting them  up
and giving a clear road through.   .]
The   council   expressing   their
willingness   to   accept   the   plan
with this amendment Mr. Clement
• withdrew. *. (

Mayor Sutherland remarked that
;the rate would probably have jto
.be'increased" to 23j mills on
account of extra expenditure ron
,tbe streets.
By-law94 was a Local Improve*
ient by-law for the purpose of
(borrowing $3,000 to open up St
"eul Street.     ,
A resolution was passed giving
the two by-laws a first reading.    '
A statutory declaration from the
returning officer, G. H. Dunn, had
been laid on the table stating that
By-laws 90,91, 92, for borrowing
money for the opening up of new
streets, extending the waterworks
and purchasing road machinery, j
upofi which a poll had been taken
(last Friday, had received the assent
of a majority of the ratepayers.
1 Aid. Cox, who had expressed.at
a previous meeting his opposition
;to the purchase of rock-crushing
machinery, was asked by the mayor
if he wished to say anything on
the matter before the by-law was
finally pV.ased.
In was very little use saying anything how, replied Aid. Cox, as the
people had voted in favor of the
by-law.. He was still opposed to
ithe purchase of the machinery.
Mayor Sutherland pointed out
that even if the bylaw passed'they
were not obliged to spend the
money. It was certainly a matter
which should be well looked into,
as apparently no one on the
council knew much about such
Aid. Cox said that one reason
why he opposed the purchase was.
that he had heard that Vernon | to all.
[ were offering their machinery for
sale, having apparently no use for
it. ._•"•'•.''
' After some little further discussion a resolution was carried
that the three by-laws be "reconsidered and finally passed." <
Aid. Copeland announced that
the Board of Works had requested
Mr. Teal to cut the weeds and
grass on the streets. Anything
good enough for hay. would be
sold. ,.■«'■■
Aid. Cox here put in a kick
about the condition of main street.
If the steam-roller did not come
down at once, he said, something
should be done to .put the road
into, better condition. It was
certainly . in7a ridiculous state at
the* present, time and an effort
should ,-be made to make it passable. It seemed absurd that a man
should spend $ 1,500 in an automobile and then be unable to go
up the street. All the other roads
were passable and Main Street
should be made so. ^
Aid. Copeland said the steamroller had already been sent for
and should be here either that
(Saturday) night or early Monday
morning. The idea was to have
water put on the road with the
hose and then roll.
Aid. .Cox asked if he thought
the roller would make the road
all right.    _
Aid. Copeland teplied that he
thought it would. Although the
work was something in 'the. nature
of an experiment with' jhim he .felt
sure {hat if the sroatj was Veil,
watered and thoroughly rolled a
good job would be made of it.
The meeting was then adjourned
until Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock
it being thought desirable to have
the special meeting in order that
the by-law fixing the rate of taxation might be put through without
Voting on Money
By-laws to Raise $10,000 Are
Approved by Ratepayers
The public meeting called by the
council last Thursday to discuss the
three money by-laws, whfth were
to be put to the vote of the electors
on  the  following^ day,   evidently
lacked   that   element   of   interest
necessary to  draw people  down
town again on a fine evening.   The
Aldermen concerned appeared at
the  appointed  hour, primed   no
doubt with eloquent speeches on
the subject, but the public.failed
to put in an appearance and the
meeting had to be abandoned; The
three by-laws were as follows:  No'
90 to raise the sum of $4,000 to
open up  new streets, No.  91   to
raise the $3,000 for the  extension
of the city waterworks, and No. 92
to raise $3,000 for the purchase of
road machinery.        \
In the passing of a money by-law
by the council a poll of ihs rate? i
payers is necessary, although veryf
often; as in the present case, a very
small section of the ratepayers
register their.votes. The total,
number who voted on Friday last
was 55, only a fraction bf the
whole voters list.
The tabulated result shows :--
For ,. Agsinrt' Total poll
By-law No. 90, 39       16     . 55 -
By-law No. 91, 45       10       55   J
By-law No. 92,- 37   -C  18.      55
The three-fifths majority which
is necessary' to carry according to
law was 33, so that the by-law
carried in each case.

The contract has been let for the

"The contract let is for the 15 miles
between Penticton and Trout creek,
from which place it will  be continued to connect with the C.P.R.
at Merritt.   The line will cross the
river near the mill and run to the
back of Summerland, but will not
touch that town.   It is more-than
probable, however, that a spur will
connect the town with the railway,

93 and 94 a second and third
reading.   .   ,
The, fixing, of the rate of taxation
brought up the question of expenditure upon the streets. The >ate
of 23 {nills, it was pointed out, had
been based upon an estimated expenditure of $6,000 tor that pur-
.f*i_» i i_i i i
pose.    » nis Sum nad already Deen
exceeded it was found by $120 to
date, and there still remained some
work to be done.
It Was. the geheral desire of the
[.council to keep the rate down to
last year's figure, viz., 23 mills, but
how to do thia and yet to complete
the necessary street work was a
problem for the Board of Works
to solve. A fill on the street near
the cannery and the clearing of
Cadder Avenue of stumps, could
be paid for put of the money
raised under;the by-law for the
opening of new streets, but there
still remained the finishing of
Barnard Avenue and the grading
of Harvey Avenue.        .
It was mentioned that the steamroller was already at work, on the
east end of Bernard Avenue, and
on the suggestion of Aid. Dalgleish
it. was agreed that after the ad'
jpurnmeht of the meeting the
council should make a tour of inspection of the work being done.
A resolution was passed that Bylaws 93 and 94 be read a second
and third time.
The j meeting then adjourned
until Saturday next at 6 p.m.
An exceptionally large congregation gathered at the Methodist
Church on Sunday 'evening last,

The reports of. real estate trahs-
actions in the district continue to
come in. Mr. D. H. Rattenbury,
who states that the demand for
orchard and other property in the
neighbourhood of Kelowna was
never so good, has made two
important sales during the week.
The large 65-acre place owned by
the Pirot Bros., on the Vernon
Road has been turned over to Mr.
William Marshall, of Lemberg, Sa*.,
for close on $23,000. Jack Bart-
ley's 15-acie orchard next to Mr.

science of the application of water
to the 60U7
In hia lecture course Prof. Allen
Lis assisted by Mr. Ben Hoy, assistant
horticulturist to the Provincial Department of Agriculture.
The course, so far as this district
is concerned opened yesterday
afternoon when a practical demonstration waa held in the orchard of
Mr. G. L. Allert, on the K. L. O.
bench.     .   „.
There was a large turnout who
awaited Prof. AJIen on his arrival
at the orchard, and a most interesting talk was given. The lecturer
opened the subject by explaining
briefly .the various methods em-
ployedjn, the preparing of new
land fe^or^ard-pwposes.and'the
necessity of leveling and fixing it
before the trees .were planted so
that the future crop might be irrigated with the least expenditure of
time and labour, and .with the most
satisfactory results. .This was a
matter which ' waa
neglected, resulting in
loss and expense. _.
A good distributing system was
the next consideration, and was
a valuable asset tp any orchard.
Irrigation could thus be done with
the greatest economy of water, the
greatest efficiency and the   least
cost of time and labor.   The way
in which water travels in the soil
and the water holding capacity of
different soils were points discussed
in a most entertaining Way.   Tne
relative advantages of deep and
shallow furrows were practically
illustrated by experimental trenches
which had. been prepared before
hand, the. water being allowed  to
run some hours previously.   Deep
furrows had the advantage of getting, the • Wateridown to the roots of
deep rooted plants, and avoiding
the great waste of water by evaporation  from  the  surface   of   the
The frequency of irrigation was
another essential point The Ject-
urer recommended in every case
to avoid using tbo much water, as
this leached out plant food,, and
was in many ways injurious to the
soil and plants. Irrigation was too
often employed as a substitute for
cultivation. When cultivation could
be made to suffice by conserving
the moistuae already in the' soil,
irrigation should be avoided.
The keenest interest was taken
in the lecturer's remarko, and Prof.
Allen declared himself highly satisfied with the interest shown. He
had an excellent place in Mr.
Allen's orchard for the purposes
of the demonstration; and he appreciated the courtesy and ready,
help which had been given thenv
In the evening a limelight lecture
was.held in the Opera House.1 The
audience, as seems to be usual with
meetings held in town was rather
small, some thirty people being
Mr. Ben Hoy was the first speaker
and gave an informal talk on cover
crops and summer pruning, chiefly
answer  to   various   questions
up-to-date orchard culture. Clean
cultivation was being everywhere
condemned as tending to gradually
burn out and destroy the humus in
the soil. A suitable cover crop
not only held the soil together, but
rendered vast stores of plant food
available from below, and provided the humus necessary to place
the soil in the proper mechanical
condition for growth of crops, and
access of air.
The relative claims of fall wheat,
rape, and hairy vetch were dis- ■
cussed, the latter being by far the.
best, but the price was apt to prove
prohibitive. It was possible however to save enough seed from the
first crop to make a second sowing, and expense could be reduced
in that way.
Gover was excellent for the
opening up of heavy soil, being a
deep rooted crop. Some return
could also be got by taking a crop
from it, and leaving, in a second
year before plowing under. Alfalfa was good, but hard to get out
(and hard to get in, said a voice
from the back).
Care should b6 taken  not   to
summer prune top'early, as. if the
tree had to make'a second growth
during die fell rains,4e^Enighr suffer
injury through the wood not being
ripened "up in time for the winter. 7
' The danger of intercropping or
raising crops between the treeq,
was that for. die sake of such, a
crop irrigation was often continued
too late in the season, not allowing .
the tree to ripen its wood before 7
the cold weather came.   Irrigation
in this district- should  stop about '
August    1st,    tho\igh   cultivation >
might be continued later if the soil
is light
Prof. Allen then   took up the
subject of irpg|tion.   Of all.opera- <
tioi&Jn Aifeyfaab^ practice, "he' -1
said, this waa the. least understood.  "
Practically a new thing, at least in ''
respect to its extensive application''

and British Columbia than in anv

of water, e^ett^vrat^'iipt being

small a quantity'aspossibjeahould
be used -and that conserved by. -

quick-growing   soil    perhaps   the' _
chief problem was to get the trees
to quit growth and ripen-up their
wood in time for winter.   Cpver
crops helped to adjust this matter
by using up surplus moisture.

The driver of a team and wagon
belonging to Mr. Alphonse Lefevre,
had a narrow escape Monday
afternoon. The team was standing
outside the harness store, and as
the driver attempted to climb to
his seat they started off suddenly.
The man lost his hold and fell under the wagon, which passed over
his legs. Strange to say, although
about a ton of oats was packed
in the box at the time, the man was
very little the worse. The team
continued their mad career, turning
down Water Street, in the direction
of the Fire Hall; A few hundred
yards over the rocks, however,
changed their intentions. They
evidently decided the game was
not worth the candle, and quit.

Vast: Areas Where the Foot ef o Whits
Man Has Never Trod-     «
There are vast areas in Canada of
which even the government bas no
definite knowledge, and there are thousands of square miles where the foot
of a white man has never trod. Practically all knowledge of this big wild
country has been secured again and
again along a few chosen and well
worm routes, outside of which inyeati-
gatlon has seldom gone.
Imagine a dozen or so well beaten
vehicle highways traversing a country
one-fourth as large as Europe—narrow
highways hemmed In by Impenetrable
wilderness—and one may form some
sort of Idea of the little that is still
kaown of 600,000 square miles of the
North American continent
Along these routes nearly all "explorers" have gone. Along them are
situated most .pf tlie fur posts, and beyond their narrow lines but little is
known. And ln this world of forest
and ridge mountains and eternal desolation, still burled ln the mystery and.
silence of endless centuries, are its
"people."     _''.-'
Approximately there are from 15,000
to 25,000 human souls in an area fifteen times tbe' size of Ohio, and there
are no more tbnu 500 of these who
have not some Indian blood in their
veins. On the other band, fully one-
half of the total population has its
strain of white blood.—Leslie's Weekly.
Their Method* Are Not Those of the
Strenuous Life.
A Spanish railway seems an excellent place, for a rest cure. "I remember," writes Mr. S. L. Bensusan, "when
going on u short journey in Andalusia,
the train that carried me stopped at a
short Junction. While we were at
rest.here, after some hours of travel at
the rate of at least twelve miles an
hour, the driver uncoupled his engine
and proceeded down the line with it in
the direction we were not to take.
"The passengers walked contentedly
up and down, smoked countless' cigarettes, ate orange:., resisted the importunities of beggars. At last 1 became
uneasy and asked where tbe driver
had gone. 'Pedro has run down the
line on his engine to take a birthday
gift to bis mother, who lives over
there,' explained the station master;
'he is indeed a good son and will not
trust his parcel to the post. Spain Is
full of thieves.' Aud when the good
son bad come back from bis mission
be restored tbe engine to its proper
position and .we re-entered the train,
which went on its journey after three-
quarters <)f an hour's delay."—London

Oscar Browning In his interesting

Fox, then editor of tbe Monthly Repository, settled tbe fate of Robert

The explanation given 'is that "a single line was required to complete the

pretentious, described It as I bars stated above."

To the Editor of the Orchard City
Dear Sir,—
As the representative in British
Columbia of the Colonial Intelligence League, I beg to send you
our leaflet and would earnestly ask
your interest and sympathy in this
imperial and practical movement.
We aim not merely, nor even
primarily, at the immediate benefit
of the educated women for whom
we hope to find suitable careers in
the overseas Dominions, but quite
as sincerely at that of their employers on this side and at the
ultimate advantage of the countries
which have been calling upon the
Motherland to send over its
There are waiting in England
now over a hundred women and
girls of the very best type, sifted by
this League from among (at present) four times the number of
applicants, who share the eagerness of their brothers to-find scope
for energies and abilities in new
lands—Home Helps, Nurses, Dressmakers, Teachers, Secretaries,
Typists, &r_. These are of two
main classes—those who have a
little money of- their own, and
those who are entirely dependent
on their earnings. In either case
each one of them is not only
thoroughly -qualified in her own
line but is also able and willing, if
necessary, to undertake successfully domestic work of any kind.
We pledge ourselves to supply
only the most capable, and impress
on each applicant that efficiency is
essential and that the incompetent
and amateurish are utterly useless
here. We propose to deal chiefly
with the country districts, but shall
also send girls to posts in towns
whenever the conditions are suitable.
We therefore invite applications
to us for women workers of all
sorts, besides those already enumerated, dispensers, expert poultry
and flower farmers, dairywomen,
milliners, governesses, confident
that our guarantee as to their
ability and general character will
prove wholly justified.' And in
thus finding work for our applicants we pledge ourselves only to
send them to posts we have investigated and can guarantee reliable
and offering adequate remuneration. '
I shall be most grateful for any
help in this work and information
as to reliable openings.  „
Yours faithfully,

The Propagation of
Seedling Apples
A Fascinating and Necessary
Hobby for Fruitgrowers
The propagation of seedling
apples or fruit of any variety is one
of the most fascinating occupations
or pastimes a person can have. It
there is anything well known, any
fact undisputed among horticulturists, it is that as a rule no tree fruit
will exactly reproduce itself from
seed. While this is true of.all tree
fruits, the apple tree is remarkable,
in that valuable varieties never reproduce themselves.
The only cases known in pomology where an apple treie is produced the second time from the
seed is in cases wheje they revert
back or nearly so to the wild btock
from which they originated. Pyrus
baccata and all such trees are absolutely without any value whatever except to be used as stocks
for grafting purposes.
Plant a bushel of apple seed all
taken from, say, the Wealthy.
While it would be possible, still it
would be highly improbable that
out of the whole lot of seedlings,
vou would get a single Wealthy
tree. This is true of any named
variety. The absolute facts are,
technically speaking, that on planting the bushel of apple seed mentioned, when the seedlings are
grown there will be no two trees
alike in every respect, and what is
more, there will be no tree that is
exactly like any known tree heretofore grown, with the exceptron
of those which revert back to the
original stock as before stated.
Many valuable varieties will be
found among them, but all differing
in some way from kinds now grown
and classified. Consequently, to
perpetuate a given variety, grafting
or budding in some form must be
resorted to.
To produce hardy apple seedlings where very few apples are
grown, sow the seeds of apples
produced in the locality or as near
to it as possible.
Another thing   noticed   in   connection with the growing r f  apple
trees from seed  is   that  an  apple
seedling that has never been transplanted may be to all appearances
quite hardy so far as the  old  tree
is concerned, but when an effort is
made to propagate it  by   grafting,
the grafted trees are   found to   be
quite tender.    Again we have had
seedling apple trees grow until they
were seven or eight years old, and
be to all appearances quite  hardy
carrying a  few  specimen  apples,
but just as   soon   as   they   would
come   into   full   bearing,   it   was
noticed the season  following  that
the tree was nearly dead, the effort
put forth to mature a full  crop   of
fruit weakening its vitality to  such
an extent that it would finally  succumb,     fn  connection   with   this
matter, experience has taught  that
no seedling fruit can be classed as
quite hardy until it has been grafted
in the nursery, cme into full bear-
in the orchard, passed  throngh  a
hard winter, then produced a good
crop the following summer.
The beginner will now clearly
understand that the growing of.
apples from seedling trees is very
much of an Experiment, and he
should be prepared to meet with
many disappointments. But there
is a great and pressing need for
this kind of work in Canada. This
is a line of work that all those who
have succeeded in fruiting the large
apple can take part in. Save the
seeds and care for the seedling
trees till they bear fruit.
In collecting seeds save the cores
of all large apples used ; the seeds
are removed with a sharp-pointed
knife; all seeds are sown in the
fall if possible, as a better percentage germnate the following spring.
If, however, the seeds are saved
during the winter they may be
stratified, that is, mixed with soft
sand in a box with holes in -ibe
box for drainage and then placed
outside to freeze. The box should
be placed on the north side of a
building. Ifrthe seeds are dry, keep
them in the moist sand for 24
hours in the house.    Before placing
outside be sure there is a close
cover on the box, otherwise the
mice will clear out your seeds even
if frozen among the dampsar.d.
Sow  seeds  in  rows  three  feet
apart and one and   a  half  inches
deep, and rather thinly,   say  eight
•seeds   to   the   foot.     Where    the
quantity of seed sown is small, the
seeds may be sown   in  beds four
feet wide and as long as  required
the beds should  be  bounded   by
boards eight to  ten  inches  wide,
set on edge.    The seeds  are   ther.
sown in drills ten inches apart. As
soon as the  plants  appear above
the ground they will be  benefited
by being slightly shaded from the
sun.    This is  best  done  by  lath
screens;   the  space between  the
lath may be two inches wide.    As
soon as the second pair of  leaves
form, the screen may be  removed
altogether.    If the season is dry  it
may be necessary to water  occasionally.     When   this   is   done   a
thorough soaking should be given.
A light sprinkling   every  day  is
worse than useless.    In the fall the
young seedlings are  dug up  and
heeled in outside.    In  the spring
they   are  planted   out  in nursery
row 8,  eight inches  apart  in   the
row, the rows four feet apart.   It is
important that some protection be
given the young seedlings the  first
winter.     Injury  by  girdling   from
field   mice   will  also   have  to   be
guarded against.    This   is  nsually
done by throwing up a light   plow
furrow against the  trees  on both
sides of the row, the  tops  of  the
tallest ones being  bent over  and
covered with earth.   The seedlings
are left in the nursery row for two
years,  then   each  year   they   are
closely examined when in full leaf.
The thorny, small leafed ones are
cut out and only those  with   large
thick leaves are left to fruit.   Those
having  bearing  trees can  hasten
this by taking scions off the seedlings and  grafting  them  into  the
bearing trees.   In a couple of years
thev will usually come into bearing
when a fair idea can be formed of
the quality  and  size  of the  fruit
your seedlings are likely to bear.
This is a line of work that needs
many to take part in, and without
doubt the results will be of great
value. Every precaution should
be taken to plant seeds, of the very
hardiest obtainable varieties, as
hardiness is the first and most important essential on the northern
border of apple culture.

Romance of the Discovery of. the
Cause of Malaria.
Iu tbe history of research are many
romances. Of t'he discovery that ma-
'aria was caused by mosquitoes, It la
related how Dr. Low and Dr. Sanation lived in the malarious Roman
Oampagna without quinine. They retired at sunset to a mosquito proof
hut, with double doors and windows
of wire net, aud they,dld not leave until sunrise. The fact that thej remained Immune, while the attendants,
sleeping outside, contracted malaria,
confirmed tbe belief that the mosquitoes were responsible.
But how did they entry the disease?
At first it was thought to be by water. To settle the question live mosquitoes whlcb had bitten infected
peasants were sent borne and two
members of the school submitted to
be bitten by tbem. Tbey both went
down with malaria. Again, how did
the mosquitoes transmit the germ?
By cutting sections of tbe proboscis
the malarious parasite was found. It
breaks through the skin of the probo-
sis nnd is transmitted at the time of
the sting. From the first conjecture
to the final proof was a series of careful experiments, ending wltb the slicing of the mosquito's proboscis. Now,
this is finer than fine balr. It is necessary to stop to think. For it Is easier to imagine the triumph of the
proof than the delicate operation tbat
produced it—London Standard.
It Was a Costly Process When It Wat
First Established.
The first incorporated gas company
was the National- Light and Heat Company of England, established in 1809.
In America the first gas company was
incorporated in Baltimore in 1816, tha
second one in Boston in 1822, and the
next one was the New York Gaslight
company, incorporated in 1823.
Prior to 1830 tbe gas business of this
country was nominal, but the price
probably was responsible for its slow
development. From 1824 to 1828, says
Moody's Magazine, the New York Gaslight company sold gas to consumers
at the rate of $10 a thousand cubic'
feet. '
The first artificial illuminating gas
was produced in England about 1726
by one Dr. Hales, but not until 178G
was a practical test made. In that
year the Earl of Dundonald of Scotland arranged an apparatus by which
be lighted his castle witb gas. The
same year William Murdock of Birmingham, England, introduced gas as
a light in his workshops at Redruth
and Cornwall.
As Mr. Murdock was tbe first man
to reap any commercial benefit from
the discovery of the use of Illuminating gas, he may properly be accredited
as tbe father of modern public utilities. In 1813 London bridge was illuminated by gas, and five years later
gas was in general use throughout the
main part of London.

Rsd Letter Days.
The origin of a "red letter day" has
been traced back to tbe tbird century.
Gregory, bishop of Caesarea, zealous
for: the-conversion of pagans, found
them unwilling to give up _thelr customary recreations at the festivals of
.their gods, so. taking a leaf out of
tbelr book, he instituted festivals in
honor .of saints and martyrs.   This example''- soon led to the. institution of
holy days, now corrupted into holidays.   In old almanacs all sucb holy
days were set forth ln red Ink, tbe
rest being In black; hence the term
"red letter day" for any notable occasion. Others say that tbe origin of the
expression is much more recent and Is
due to the fact that Saints' day, the
5th of November, the king's birthday
and accession and King Charles' day
were similarly marked off in red as
holidays for the Bank of England, evidently in the times of tbe later Stuarts.
