Kelowna Fifth Annual Regatta
Ideal Weather and a Most Complete Two-Days' Programme
of Events Draws a Large Holiday Crowd from all Points
of the Valley.
Kelowna's Annual Regatta has
come again and gone, and the
steady advance which has marked
its development during the past
five years from very humble beginnings has this year been more
pronounced than ever. Favored
by the best of wepther conditions
—fine and bright, but still cool
enough to be comfortable—the
general opinion at the close of the
programme seemed to be that
this fifth regatta had been without doubt the "best ever." Ex-
\y __ perience is teaching the management to avoid the annoying delays
which U8uallv attend these functions, and almost without a hitch
one event followed another in
rapid succssion.
The two days' programme was a
long one and well arranged. Over
$700 in prizes were offered, and
the entries although light in some
of the events were still sufficient
to make interesting sport
The attendance on the first day
..when   the   excursion   from   the
north came in would have been
much greater but for some bungling
the  part of the CP.R.    Ar
rhngements had been, made ten
days previously and guarantees
signed ffpr a Wednesday morning
excursion from Enderby, but on
Tuesday, it seems, the, agent in
Vernon, from, where* tKft bulk"of
the visitors would have been d rawn
was refusing to sell tickets claiming
he had no instructions .respecting
an excursion. The committee .are
up ' the jmatter« with  the
responsible -parties,
a -large contingent arrived from
-" Penticton and the south.       t
The Kelowna  Band  furnished
imuic throughout the entire'regatta
' and it was pleasing *to* hear comments upon the wonderful progress
"the band has made during the last
■ few.months.   A children's band
7 from   the   Orphans'    Home    at
Des  Moines,   Washington,   who
were at the-opera house during the
week also contributed selections.
The judges were Messrs. J. M.
Robinson and J.. S. Gillespie, of
Summerland, C. C. Prowse,   and
The first morning's programme
'..-opened,.or- should, have opened,
- with the Open Sailing Handicap,
_ -dut owing to lack of definite understanding as to the course the two
boats entered started in opposite
directions and the race had to be
called off and postponed until the
second day.
- ThcTnfec^neaia inwSe'QuoJtef
Mile Single Sculls resulted in St.
G. P. Baldwin. K. Morgan and W.
Hill winning places in the final
which was to be rowed on the
second, day.
There were numerous competitors for the 30 yards Boys' Swimming Race, and it is evident that
some good swimmers, are being
* trained amongst the rising- generation. H. Keating came in- first
with G. Silke second and, Cyril
Weddell third.
The Quarter-Mile Double Sculls
heats placed R. C Bennett and
Geo. Benmore, and J. M. Paret and
W. Hill in line for the final.
In the 60 yards Ladies' Swimming Race there were, strange to
say, only two rabies, MiBs Nancy
Buchanan beating Miss Jessie Cot-
tingham, of the Palace Hdtel.
There were seven entries for .the
Open Gasoline Launch, and some
very speedy boats were in evidence. " Mr. Leckie Ewing had his
fine-new launch entered,-built for
him this year in Kelowna,   and
- came in first. W. R. Megaw'a
beautifully-equipped boat arrived
second, and A. James'" Rip *' third.
The latter is a second edttion of
James' red "Rip" of last year,
which then left everything behind
it.    Although the competition this
■ year is keener "Rip U.",;might
have made a better showing in this
race but for losing co&iiderable
time owing  to  trouble with the
OnThurifttaftr Ining for season ticket holders ol
engine. S. T. Elliott's boat
fourth and the rest in order were
Geo. F. James, R. C. Lambly and
R. Lambly. In classes this result
showed jLeckie-Ewing . winner" of
the over 25 feet, A. Jones of the
25 feet and under; G. F. James of
the 20 feet and under; and R. C.
Lambly of the 3 h.p. and under.
In the -afternoon the gentle
breeze of the morning had almost
disappeared and the lake was in
ideal condition for sculling and
canoeing, -'-j'
The 60 yards Boys' Swimming
drew" four 'entries, H. Morrison
drawing gradually ahead in a
keenly-contested race, H. Dryden,
of Peachland, being second. Clarence Jones, was a competitor in
this race he having happily sufficiently recovered from the effects of
his broken leg to be able to enter
into: the sports this year.
In the Men's 60-yaird Breast
Stroke Race, A. Edwards, who is
undoubtedly pne ,-ofl. the finest
swimmers bn •_ the lake, won first
place, J7F. Burne and L. G. Aviss
being: the only other contestants. _
The- Mein's Tut Race proved a
failure, it being discovered that the
|ubs provided Were not big enough
to support the contestants. An
attempt .was made to carry the ]
race through by using the " horses "
provided for the Aquatic Derby,
but as no'nek of, the competitors
finished the race mounted as the
rules required, the judges decided
no race.    • - .:■,,• ■

with J.'FT Burne and L G Aviss

.'The Boys' "Aquatic Derby'wa*
nbt.very successful owing to- the
apparent absence or perhaps disregard, of rules, the boys being
occupied more in endeavouring to
dismount each other than in making progress towards the goal.
Alwyn Weddell was declared the
In the'. Single Canoes, R. W.
Stevens, who seems in a fair way
to establish a record by cleaning
up all the possible canoeing prizes
on. the lake this year, was an easy
first, with A. Cather second.
" The Open';Dive proved a popu
Jar: event, nine competing. Five
points each were given for spring,
action in air, distance and entry in
water, quick and neat recovery.
Mr. J. F. Burne, who has had repeated success at the various
regattas this year, again succeeded'
in scoring highest marks. H. M.
Goode was second and K. Mac-
Laren third. A small competitor
was L. Hassell, an Okanagan
Mission youngster who, notwithstanding his diminutive size compared with the' portly figures of
some of the others, showed some
very neat diving.
Three. crews entered for the
Canoe' Fours—Lawson'st H- JL
Willits, J. McMillan, C. Morrison,
E. Hay; Bank of Montreal: A. E.
Pettman, F. R. Wilgress, N. E.
Planche, H. Gi MacCullough;
Collett-Crowley: M. Jenkins, G.
Stirling, J. Chapman, C. Newby.
The race was ■ marred somewhat
by the erratic efforts of,. the Bank
of Montreal crew who probably
from ah unequal distribution of
weight in the canoe seemed unable'
to steer. By persistently breaking
away from the_cpurse -and .making
for the " open ^sea"" :th^i put I both
themselves arid the Collett-Crowley
crew out of J the running, the Law-
son crew7sailing homepractically
without competition. The Collett-
Crowley .ci'ew .should have protested according to rules before
leaving. their canoe, but they
neglected to dp so and the judges
had no option but to award the
prize to the Lawson men.     '
The Relay Swimming Race was
the , most interesting swimming
event of the afternoon, and on that
account may have justified .the
elaborate   preparations   entailing
£ into pure ,y horse play." rules being

the moving of two big scows and
mooring* them in position in front
of the stands. Two teams of four
each were entered: Kelowna
consisting of A. Edwards, Clarence
Jones. J. Wilson and Geo. Stirling;
Peachland : T. Buchanan, R. Laidlaw, J. Buchanan and F. Thome.
Each team had two men placed on
each scow. At the start a Peachland man and a Kelowna man
dived together from the same
side. The Peachland man was
the first to touch the other side,
thus, giving the signal for another
man of his own team to dive and
continue the race in the, opposite
direction. The Kelowna team lost
time on two occasions in getting
into the water, and Peachland
kept the lead all the way through,
winning by.a good distance.
The Tilting from Canoes was exceedingly well done. Four crews
competed, the first to enter the
"lists" being F. R. Wilgress with,
H. G. MacCullough paddling, and
Cruikshank with Crow paddlins.
Wilgress had a close shave at the
start but recovered himself and
alter a little sparring aimed a well-
directed blow which overturned
his opponents' canoe 'and dumped
both the occupants into the water:
F. A. Taylor with J. F. Burne pad-^
dling, and A. H. P. Errington with
L. G Aviss at the paddle, next
took the field. A determined fight
ended by Errington falling put of
his canoe. The final then brought
F. A. Taylor and Wilgress together,
and a fierce onslaught ensued.
Unfortunately Taylor overreached
himself in, a furious thrust at his
opponent and fell overboard leaving Wilgress and his" paddler
MacCullough the victors. 7"-..      1
Three pairs entered  the Mixed
Canoe race, R..W. Stevens and his
Eartner" Miss   Gladys   Robinson
avirigan easy.win.
The Aquatic Derby resolved itself
aged to cross the line first, and was
awarded die prize.
The heats in the mixed double
sculls were:- 'Miss Shayler and
E J: Maguire, 1st, and Miss Wilde
and A. H. P. Errington, 2nd; second heat, Miss M. Raymer and W.
Hill 1st, and Miss Abbey and R. G
Bennett, 2nd.
The Long Distance Swimming Championship for the " B. M.
H." challenge cup and $25 prize
drew five entries. The course was
from the opposite side of the lake
a distance of one mile. Only three
finished, the first being R. G. Tait,
of Summerland,. who thus takes the
cup, from E. Norman, the last year's
winner. Although entered, for
some reason Norman was
to compete. The winner's time
was 29 minutes 50 seconds. ' G
Stirling was second and R. S. Airman 3rd.

Presbyterian Sunday
School Picnic
The boys and girls of the Presbyterian Sunday School—and some
of their elders too—had a great
time last Thursdav at the annual
outing, this year spent, by kind
invitation, at Mayor Sutherland's
place on the lake shore.
The dav was beautifully fine and.
Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland had made
the most elaborate arrangements
for the entertainment of their guests
and nothing was spared to make
the afternoon an enjoyable one.
Motor boats were kept going taking
the children for short trips on the
lake. Others were splashing merrily in the water in the sunshine
swinging and frisking around as
only children can.
Tea was served on the lawn for
the children, while the grownups
were provided with a table on the
verandah. There was plenty of
ice cream and other good things to
which the youngsters did full
And then the races after supper.
There was a great variety of races
and the fun was fast and furious.
Such races as 'threading the needle'
for the girls, and other novelties of
that kind provided no end of amusement.
As the daylight began to fade
out of the sky a return was made
to town, some in drays provided
by the school, and as many as
could be accomodated by boat
Before breaking up, hearty cheers
were given for Mr. and Mrs. Sutherland for their hospitality and generosity, in acknowledging which
Mr. Sutherland expressed his pleasure at seeing the children .there,
and invited the Sunday school for
a similar picnic next year.
Bishop De Pensier Will
Visit This Week
Items from Ellison*
(From our own correspondent) '
On Monday night last a meeting
of exceptionally great interest to
fruit growers and farmers took
place in the achoolhouse-when Mr.
Ben Hoy, of Vernon, and Professor
Thatcher, of Washington, spoke
on matters pertaining to the rearing
of orchards, &&
Mr. Hoy, who was the first
speaker, delivered a very interesting, address on the selection of
nursery stock, planting, cultivating,
and irrigating of fruit trees, and
his remarks-were listened to with
great 'attention by the ranchers
from the surrounding district, who,
at the close of his address, asked
several questions, which were
answered to the evident satislac-
unable tion of the perplexed ones.
Professor,Thatcher, on being introduced by Dr. Dickson, spoke
eloquently on co-operation in farming, laying special emphasis on
the benefits to be derived by pur-
chesing materials for the farm in
Kelowna is to receive a visit this
weekend from the Bishop of the
diocese, the Rt. Rev. A. U. De Pensier, Bishop of New Westminster
and Kootenay. His Lordship will
arrive Saturday afternoon, and will
be entertained at a garden party
from 4 to 7 o'clock at the home of
Mr. P. DuMoulin.
On Sunday morning the Bishop

St. Andrews at Okanagan Mission,
service being held there at 10:30.
At the Parish Church, Kelowna,

The handicap gasoline launch
race, although interesting enough
as a spectacle, is more a matter of
arithmetic than anything else. There
were six entries, the competing
boats having been timed on a trial

pointed his remarks by several
striking illustrations of what was
being accomplished by this means
in the States.
The Professor also spoke on the
methods of conserving moisture in
the soil and on the dangers of over-
irrigation. He showed how much
valuable plant food was often
w«flhed away on lo low-lying lands,
eventually forming what is Known
as alkali lands. The lecturer in his
closing remarks stated that he was
endeavouring to find out what particular virtue'a barbed wire or rail
fence had on certain pieces of
land; on the pne side a farmer
was able to grow 70 or 80 bushels
of oats to the acre, whilst on the
other side his neighbour could only
raise 30 .bushels' although the land
waa identically the same and the
weather conditions alike, vet the
results weie different and he often
wondeired what the fence had to
do with it. , "77 '"' ■ 7; yy

A. perliminary route was run by
the company's engineers which was
duly filed with and approved by
the Railway department at Ottawa.
This route came across Trout Creek
around the side of Giant's Head
and out through Granett Valley and
westward through Meadow Valley.
Later the company applied to the
Department of Railways and Canals for permission to revise these
plans and make the new route follow up Trout Creek and northwestward to Osprey lake.
July 24th was the date set for th«^
hearing of the case at Ottawa. Upon
thia being made known to the Summerland Municipal Council they at

Conservation   Commission Issues Valuable
An Exhaustive Work on Lands
Fishries, Game and Minerals Contains mass of
One of the most valuable publications of the year is the volume
just issued on " Land, Fishries,
Game and Minerals," by the Dominion Commission of Conservation. The book, representing as it
does a great deal of exacting research work, makes available to
the average man a mass of instructive and entertaining information
otherwise unobtainable by him.
As a refarance work for the journalist, the student of public questions
and the well informed nun on the
street, it will be found of no small
value. It is a large volume of some
525 pages, substancially bound 'in
cloth and fully illustrated throughout, with maps, diagrams and two-
color photo engravings.
The section devoted to Lands,,
describes the agricultural survey of
one hundred representative farms
in each province, made by the
Commission of Conservation in
order to ascertain just what the
condition of agricuiture is in Can'
ada. Some of the subjects on
which information was obtained
are : rotation qi crops, use of manures, prevalence of weeds and insect pests, water and fuel supply
and the use of selected seeds. One
of the striking facts revealed is that
not more than nine per cent.ofthe
farmers of Canada follow an intelligent and effective rotation of
crops. By the adoption of more
scientific methods which could
readily be put into effect, it is estimated that the field crops of the

country could be doubled in twenty
years. The report is replete with
agricuitural information, valuable
because it is not hearsay, but a
statement of actual facts scientifically obtained by men in the field.
An article on Agricultural Production in Canada indicates just what
each province has produced of
field crops, fruit and live stock
since 1891, and also gives crop
areas and comparilive crop yields.
Fishries and Game
i ..  •
The section on Fishries and
game is a valuable compendium of
facts and conclusions by various
experts,. On account ot the frequent disjitftes over jurisdiction in
the case of fishries between the
Provinces and- the Dominion, an
analysis is given of the clauses of
the British North America Act, re
ferring to fi hries, showing what
p'owers each authority has. Following this is a digest of the Federal
and Provincial fishries laws and

Artificial Camphor.
There is in operation. in New York

the product of which is Intended to
compete in the market with, the natural substance. It, is maintained that
it does npt differ, except iri the manner of Its ori«'iu. from'that extracted
from the camphor trues of 'Formosa.
Artificial' camphor' is made from essentia! oils derived from turpentine.
Chemically the only difference between turpentine and camphor Is the;
possession by each uioknnile of the
latter of one atom''of .oxygen which is
lacking in tite former. By .chemical
process the needed oxygen Is supplied.

she called her away from Bobby Davis and began to. talk to her.

A Nelson report states that within a few weeks there will be eight
thousand head - of poultry at a

of three thousand egR8 have been

capacity t>f five thousand chicks.
Tht new company formed to run
the ranch has imported two thousand pedigree white Plymouth
Rocks from Indiana and a thousand prize bred Antonas from
Brantford, Ont. Eggs now sell
there at fifty cents a dozen and
the company sees a bright future
for business as British Columbia
imports millions - of dollars worth
of poultry products yearly. Ducks
will be added later. Contracts are
now signed for.all the eggs and
poultry .the company can supply
for a year.
B.C. Game Regulations
By an Order-in-Council passed
recently by the Provincial Government, the future use of automatic
guns by British Columbia sportsmen has been prohibited from
September first next. These guns
have only come into general use
during the past few years, and
have been particularly favoured
by duck-huntert, who, thus armed
have been enabled to slaughter
the water-fowl wholesale. The
general opinion ia that their use
is the reverse of sportsmanlike, and
the action taken by the government will meet with the cordial
approval of true sportsman in ail
parts of the country. By a second
Order in Council a closed season
for sheep during the ensuing two
years has been prescribed in tbe
districts of Yale, Okanagan and
Similkameen ; and another year of
immunity has been granted to
wapiti in all parts of the mainland,
as . from September .1st. The
wapiti of Vancouver island are
already under special protection.

Considerable uneasiness, and
even alarm has been felt by lumbermen and others interested in forest
products, over the depredations in
different parts of Canada, of the
spruce budw6rm,(ror/rtr/um^erflna)
It was feared that the spruce might
suffer a fate similar to that of the
tamarack which was killed by the
larch sawfly about twjentw-five
years ago. As a result, however,
of careful investigation begun by
the Division of Entomology of the
Dominion Department of Agriculture during 1909 and still in progress, the situation appears to be
much more satisfactory and reassuring than was at fiist considered
The destructive work of the bud-
worm was first reported two years
ago from Vancouver Island, where
the Duglas fir -was attacked ; and
from Quebec, where the spruce
and the balsam suffered chiefly. In
the case of Quebec, the pests were
at first confined to the west central
portion of the province, but during
1910 areas on the east of the St.
Lawrence were also attacked. It
was this latter CircumstanceT that
rousecf timber owners to a sense of
the possible extent of the danger.
While in the caterpillar stage
these insects destroy the buds of
the spruce and balsam, especially
at the tops of. the trees. They also
bite off the leaves,' which, together
with the excrement of the cater-
pillors, cause the tops of the trees
to assumes a reddish broWn appearance. When a large area is attacked it appears as if it had been
swept-by fire.    -...._ .....„,.,..'
As such plagues of air insects
can only be controlled by natural
means, the Dominion Entomologist
visited a number of the infected
districts for the purpose of dis-,
covering a natural remedy that
would meet the situation. Various
insect-enemies or parasites were
found, that prey upon the budworm
and these are being used to destroy
the pest. As the percentage of
important .parasites, especially of
the minute species which attack
Ae j_gg8_of th_e_.latter, judging by
previous experiences in studies of
teis nature, it is not improbable
that the insects will be controlled
by its natural parasites in the course
of a year or two, that is before it
has inflicted any serious damage to
the spruce and balsam by repeated
Haircutting, Shaving,
Shampooing, etc.
