A letter waa read from C. R.
Gowen complaining'of the action
of Mr. G. Rowcliffe in fencing in a
public lane; running alongside his
property. The clerk was instructed
to write Mr. Rowcliffe" requesting
removal of the fence.
A letter was also read from the
provincial surveyor of taxes stating
that the Tax Commission which is
at present touring the province
wouid sit in Kelowna on the 21st
A petition was "received from
residents on Wilson Avenue for
the placing of incandescent lights
oi> the poles which are being
erected on that street.
The appointment of a building
inspector for the city was then
taken into consideration. Applications had been received from the
Geo. Patterson, at   $75 per mth.
J. A. Bigger       „   $10
Geo. Aspell       ,.$110       „
Robt.F.Ritchie., $110
It was mentioned in explanation
of the widely varying amounts of
salary asked, that some of the
applicants had evidently been
under the impression that the
position was one which would
require Jull time to be devoted to
the duties of the office. The work,
however, would only take a small
amount of time each month. A
resolution wtos passed appointing
Mr. J. A. Bigger to the office.
Mayor Sutherland mentioned
that J. G. Clarke had spoken to
him in reference to the moving of
a building from Chinatown to Lum
Lock's sub-division on Ellis Street,
near the exhibition ground. He
had told Mr. Clarke it would first
be necessary to get a permit to
move the building which he did
not think would be granted if it
was necessary to cut the electric
light mains.
It was pointed out in
cussion on the subject, that the
cutting of the electric light mains
was a most undesirable proceeding. Every joint and splice iii, the
wire was detrimental toy the system
and a source of leakage. Unless
the very greatest precautions were
taken the release of the strain bv
cutting the wires threw the poles
out of alignment.
In spite of the mayor's instructions to Mr. Clarke he had 'phoned
the power house and had one of
the electricians cut some of the
wires arid had moved the building
without a permit.
Mr. H. H. Millie waited on the
council and spoke in reference to
the same subject. He had been
informed, he said, that a number
of Chinamen were contemplating
removing their buildings in the
same manner, He strongly objected to this being allowed as it
would be necessary to cut many of
his telephone wires to enable the
building to pass along the streets.
This would disorganise the service
for some time. The damage done
to the pole line was a great deal
more than was represented in any
charge he could make for the work
of cutting and replacing.
It was stated that the trouble
and expense caused by the moving
of some of the old buildings was
more than they were worth. Their
owners "should, at any rate, be
required to cut them down so as to
make them pass under the wires.
A resolution was passed that the
clerk notify Mr. Clarke that, a
written permit should have been
obtained before moving the building, and that this will in future be
insisted upon ; also that he was
now authorized to finish the moving of the building provided he
did not interfere with the telephone
service in the daytime or theHight
service at night." ';   '"""*'*'■'' y
A tax rebate of $5.20 wasallowed
to Mr. G. C..Rose, being amount
of assessment on a plank sidewalk
removed by the city; a rebate bf
$,14.09 to Div Boyce, being taxes on
three lots which had been deeded
to the city for street purposes';. and
$11.74 to Mr. W. Trench, who had
been taxed twice on the sariie property.
The mayor presented, a plan of
sub-division of Lot ,K4. block 10,
map 166, which was approved by
the council. .
Tlje ,mayor said he had been
requested by Mr. F. M. Buckland
to take up the matter of a gymnasium for the fire brigade, the proposal being that the city pass a by-
la w. to raise by way of debentures
a sum of money sufficient to pay
for the construction of the building,
the brigade guaranteeing to pay
the annual interest and sinking
fund during the currency of the
debentures and to provide a suitable site for the building.
Although most of the aldermen
expressed tthemselves in favour of
encouraging the fire brigade in
their project, some doubt was felt
as to the power' of the council to
pass a by-law to raise money for
such a purpose. It was decided to
seek the advice of the city solicitor
on the matter,
The meeting then adjourned
until Saturday next at 10 a.m.
Hon. Martin Burrell Gets
Portfolio of Agriculture
- Popular Member forYale-Cariboo Elevated to Cabinet Rank
-   Leaves for Ottawa - Banquet Postponed
The Hon. R. L. Borden completed on Monday his difficult task
of selection of the cabinet ministers
to whom falls the duty of directing
the affairs of the Dominion for
some time to come.
Considerable surprise and no
little gratification was felt locally
when it was learnt that the member for Yale-Cariboo, Mr. Martin
Burrell, or, as we must now call
him, the. Hon. Martin -Burrell had
been appointed to the important
office of Minister of Agriculture.
The good news wad received in
town first in a wire from Mr.
Burrell himself to Mr. R. F. Morrison, the secretary of the local conservative association, briefly stating
that he had accepted the portfolio
of Agriculture, and as he was
leaving immediately for Ottawa,
would be unable to attend the banquet which had been arranged for
to-night ih his honor.
The pleasure which the tidings
afforded served to place completely in the shade any disappointment which might have been felt
at the necessity for postponing the
banquet, arrangements for which
had already made some progress.
The elevation of Mr. Burrell to
the control of the department of
agriculture, is bound to prove a
popular one, not only to his many
conservative admirers, who helped
to send him to Ottawa with such a
splendid majority, but also to many
of the liberal party, who" when Mr.
Burrell was elected, like good
sports accepted the inevitable, and
in spite of their political opposition
can not but appreciate the many
excellent qualities of the new minister.
Though still a voung man and
young in the political arena (this
being but his second term in Parliament), Mr. Burrell is peculiarly
fitted for the position. Of undoubted ability both as an orator and a
statesman, he has rapidly risen to
the front. His knowledge of agricultural conditions, born of wide
and intimate 'experience of the
needs of the farmer and the fruitgrower, will be of valuable service
to him in his new duties.
Mr. Bunnell's Career
The Hon. Martin Burrell is an
Englishman by birth having been
born at Faringdon, Berks, in 1858.
His first acquaintance with Canada was twenty-seven years later
when he came, over to engage in
the fruit industry in the Niagara
peninsular. His first experience
as a public man was as lecturer for
the Ontario government, his even
then'extensive knowledge of horticulture and agriculture causing
him to be in great deihand. He
.came to B.C. in 1899, settling at
Grand Forks where he purchased
a large ranch in the Kettle River
Valley. The ranch was planted to
fruit trees, and afterwards became
one of the show places of interior.
He also established the large nursery at Grand Forks, which does a
very large business in fruit trees.
In 19Q7-8 ne acted as fruit commissioner and lecturer for the B.C.
government in the Old Country,
doing valuable, work. He is a
member of the Provincial Board of
Horticulture, and has acted as
judge at several important shows,
notably the Vancouver Apple
Show. For a short time Mr.
Bsfrrell was editor of the "Grand
Forks Gazette.
McBride will Stay With
Refuses Place in Borden's
Census Now Completed
Population Nearly 8,000,000
The PostpoUed Banquet
The banquet which was to have
been given to Mr: Burrell has not
been abandoned, but postponed
indefinitely, awaiting the first opportunity to secure his presence.
The enthusiasm with which the
function was being arianged when
circumstances interfered, will receive added zest from this new
honor which has been placed upon
Referring to Premier McBride's
refusal >to accept a portfolio in the
new government of Mr. R. L. Borden, Mr. Bowser said to an interviewer :-      .
" I may as well tell you that Mr.
McBride received an offer to enter
the  new  cabinet at  Ottawa, and
naturally he gave the matter  careful  consideration.     But   he   took
this view, and I firmly agreed with
him  in that stand, that  in  British
Columbia he and  his government
had inaugurated  many important
matters x of legislation, and   many
radical .moves   in   administration,
and he.wished more than anything
else  to  stay  and  see them   out.
Years  of   tremendous   prosperity
are in store for British Columbia.
British  coffers   are   beginning  to
open since the defeat of reciprocity as never before to our investments.     Preferment in the   East
was desirable, but when it came to
leaving   British   Columbia   in    its
growing and prosperous days there
was  only  one   decision   that the
premier could reach, and that was
to stay with his( rative  province.
Personally I am very glad he made
that decision.    "From every one I
have spoken with I hear the same
thing—that British Columbia needs
Mr. McBride  right here.    With a
conservative government in power
at Ottawa.and with active co-operation,  British Columbia  will get a
better show, and the premier will
be able to carry through many important things for this province."

Fort George Reserve
The agreement reached between
the Grand Trunk Pacific Railway
and the Fort George Indians,
whereby the latter surrender to the
former their reserve in the very
centre of Fort George was approved by the departmentof the interior
at Ottawa shortly before the defeat
of the Liberal government.
The terms of the purchase of the
reserve were the payment of the
sum of $100,000 cash to the Indians; half to be divided amongst
the natives affected and the remainder to be held by the
Dominion Government in trust for
them. In addition the railway
company agreed to build a house
for every head of a family and to
erect a church and priest's house
on each of the two reserves to
which the Indians move. The sum
of $1,000 is to be given to the
Indians to pay for the removal of
bodies from graves on the vacated
reserve to cemeteries to be esta-

Canada's fifth census, begun in
June, has been completed, and the
official figures will be made public
as soon as the returns are. in from
Yukon   and North-West districts.
The total population will be well
under eight millions.  Toronto and
Montreal  have made the 'largest
gains  in   population,- the former
having the  greatest percentage of
gain and the latter the largest gain
in  numbers.   The  maritime  provinces, New Brunswick and Nova
Scotia  have  not  grown  as   have
Quebec and the other provinces,
but that they have more than held
their own is about as strong as the
census  officials   will   put   it.     In
Ontario the population of the rural
districts has fallen off, notably in
western Ontario, from which there
has been a large migration to the
West since the last census.    This
has been partly off-set by a great
increase of population in northern
Ontario,  in  the  four  districts   of
Nipissirig, East and West Algoma, ,
and   Rainy  River nnd   Thunder
Bay,   where   the 'population lias
more than doubled.   All the Western  provinces show great gains,
the largest percentage of gain ber
ing    credited   to   Alberta.     The
cities  of   Winnipeg and  Calgary
show" the largest gains of any of
the western cities.

Feeding Value of Hay
One of the most important.
substances in any foodstuff is por-1
tein. All " nutritive substances'
which contain nitrogen are classed
under the general term of protein.
Protein is composed of nitrogen,
carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, sulphur
and phosphorus. Protein is the
substance which builds up the
body. The muscles, tendons, ligaments, connective tissues, skir,
hair, hoofs, part of the bone, and.
in fact, every part of the body but
fat, are made up of protein, together with mineral matter and
The next important class of sub.
stances is the carbohydrates, which
contain carbon hydrogen and oxygen, but no n't ogen, sulphur or
phosphorus; they include starch,
sugar, etc. These are used for
practically the same purpose for
which coal or wood is used in tie
steam engine, namely, to furnish
energy and'heat.
The third important constituent
of hay is its oils. Small quantities
of oil are present in all kinds of
hay. These oild serve the. same
purpose as the carbohydrates. A
pound of these, however, will furnish two and one-fourth times as
much energy or heat as the same
quantity of carbohydrates. It can
readily be seen when the chemical
analysis of hay is considered, why
the price of the different kinds of
hay should depend first, upon the
amount of.dige tible nutrients contained, and second, upon the purpose for which the hay is fed. If
the concentrated feed—i.e., the
grain in the ration—lacks protein,
then the hay that is high in this
substance is more valuable than
one which contains little but carbohydrates, and vice versa. There
is quite a range in the amount ot
the different classes of nutrients in
the various kinds, of hay.
On an average, in 100 pounds
of alfalfa hay the' digestible protein amounts to 10.58 pounds; in
alsike clover hay, 8.15 pounds; in
red clover hay, 7.38 pounds; red
top hay,:4.80 pounds, . and in
timothy hay, -2.89 pounds.
In 100 pounds of red top hay
the digestible carbohydrates a-
mount to 47 pounds; in timothy
hay, 43.72 pounds; in alsike clover
hay, 41.70Hpounds: in alfalfa hay,
37.33 pounds; in cowpea hay,
38.40 pounds; in red clover hay,
36.15 pounds.
When^-fed for protein, timothy
hay ranks last, but when fed for
carbohydrates, it stands next to red
top, which heads the list. If the
total nutrients are considered there
are a number of different kinds of
hay which are equal, if not superior,
to timothy hay for feeding pur-

When  He  Did  Better. 7
A celebrated b'-.-hpp once sat

on a riot , summer morning. The
preacher was a youth just- out of college—a very conceited youth. He
bellowed through his sermon at the,
top of his lungs.. His gestures were
violent eoough to,-break-hi?'arms. At
every climax he fixed tho bishop with
his eye to see if « suitable impression had been made.
And at. the.end of. the service thi3

bishop and. said:...', <....   .,,.'.-.
"I fancy I did rather well to-day,
sir.   Don't you think so?"
"Yes," returned, the bishop; "but
you did better last year.'
"Last ye»r!" said the .you<\g<man.
"Why, 1 didn't preach at all last

Adverliting tale* upon application.
An interesting matter has arisen
this year in the compilation of the
city's voters' list in respect to the
qualifications of voteis, and many
of those who have hitherto enjoyed
unquestioned the privilege of assisting in the election of the mayor
and aldermen will need to take
careful note of the city's advertisement appearing, in this issue if they
would avoid being deprived of
that privilege. The change referred
to ia in the barring out of .those
who have usually voted as owners
of property, but who are not actually registered owners, that is to
spy, who hold their property only
under agreements of sale, and are
not in possession of a registered
title to the same.
Such owners have never really
been entitled under the act to vote
in. municipal elections, but owing
to a general misreading of the
Elections Act, a more ambiguous
statute than which, by the way, it
would be difficult to find, up to thej
present time they have been allowed undisturbed to exercise that
Trouble, however, was bound to
arise sooner or later, and arise it
did in the capital city of Victoria,
where a defeated candidate for
mayor took advantage of the illegality of the voters' list to lodge a
protest against the municipal election, which, on being brought into
court, resulted in the whole council
being unseated. Victoria was thus
left without a governing body, and
a special act of the legislature was
necessary to enable the city's business to go on until a new voters'
list could be prepared and a new
council elected.
Kelowna, along with practically
every city in the province, had
rendered themselves liable to the
same disaster, but with the exception of Victoria no protest was
lodged inside of the specified
thirty days, ln consequence the
various municipal bodies, although
illegally elected were allowed to
remain undisturbed.
In the forthcoming municipal
election, the city, rendered wise by
the experience of Victoria, will
avoid laying itself open to such an
unfortunate tangle by complying
more closely with the letter ot the
law. No owner of property will
therefore be allowed to vote as
such unless he is in possession of
a registered title to the same.
Ownership under agreements of
sale will not count, though such
owner may pay all taxes levied
upon the property. He may even
have a title to his property, but
unless this has been duly registered there is no qualification for
a vote.
At first sight this action would
seem to disenfranchise a large section of rhe ratepayers, as there is
probably only a small percentage
who are actually registered owners.
Salvation, however, from such a
fate is found in a further clause
which gives the privilege of the
municipal franchise to those who
pay any tax to the city which is
not a tax upon their land or property. In our own city the only
tax which comes under this definition is the road tax, amounting to
$2. Thus those who would otherwise be_ struck off the voters' list,
can retain their vote by payment
of this $2 road tax. This will not
of course be necessary in the case
of business men who pay a trade
This is all very well so far as
the men citizens are concerned,
but alas, for the fair sex. The new
regulation seems fated to deal a
" staggering blow " to all dreams
of woman's franchise. Although
there is still an element of doubt in
the matter, legal opinion which
has been Invoked to shed some
light on the question, seems to
favor the view that women, unless
as aforesaid, actually registered
owners of property, can not even
gain an entrance to the rights of
citizenship by payment of the road
tax, as " the act confers no power
to collect such a tax except from
males between 21 and 60 years of
It remains then for all male
voters who are conscious of being
ruled out under the new order of
things to at once get busy and pay
their road tax or be reduced to
ineffectual silence when the elections come round.

Welsh Choir Great Success
The following extract is buc one
amongst scores which indicate the
enthusiastic manner in which the
Royal Welsh Choir, which visits
Kelowna on Wednesday next, Oct.
18th, is being received.
" There was a wonderful climax
to the concert given by the Royal
Welsh Ladies' Choir at the Vancouver Opera House last night;. a
I climax which showed how the
silver-voiced girls from Wales had
touched the hearts of hundreds of
their kindred who were in the
large audience. As the strains of
the Welsh national anthem-" Land
of My Fathers"—rose, Madam
Hughes-Thomas turned to the
audience and made a gesture of
invitation. It was not needed for
the Welsh people were already on
their feet singing as if their hearts
were breaking with longing, the
grand refrain of one of the noblest
national anthems ever written.
First in Welsh and then in English the refrain rang, and the
audience was given a taste of the
congregational singing for which
the Cmyry are noted. Those
Welsh people in the audience followed die waves of the baton as if
they were a trained choir, and
their example was infectious, for
the. whole audience sang "God
Save the King," as the Opera House
has never heard it.
