Reports of Office Bearers Very
Satisfactory-Officers Elected
- for Ensuing Year
.   The  fourth annual  meeting  of
the Ladies' Hospital Aid took place
. on Saturday last, at the school.
The reports of the office bearers
showed very satisfactory conditions
of the good-will of the public towards the Society, and its finances;
but were unanimous in deploring
' the diminishing numbers of membership during the past two years,
and the poor attendances at meetings.
The president, Mrs. Cameron, in
her address, pointed out the value
of the Society's work and" stated
that every month of the past ses*
sion had seen contributions of linen
or grants of funds or other payments made by the Aid to the Hospital.
She appealed to ladies when
storing their preserved fruit, to set
aside some jars of it for the Hospital store cupboard, and to remind the men that contributions to
' the hospital root-cellar are welcom-
,  ed.' .-'v.
7 She stated that since the hospital
-was opened,  four years ago  last
spring, 548 patients had  been  re-
7-ceived, 204 in the pa_jt year5*:
"•  The  treasurer's report  showed
over $900 to have been paid  into
the treasury, including the balance-
. in-hand of the previous session. Of
this $122 8 were paid for linen and
other hospital requirements, $400
voted to hospital funds, and  other
payments made;, 7
^rhe-warn^ihanks of -th^iiSeet-

Mrs. Whelan was one of the

years has seen the district pass

from die rude cattle ranges of
those days.
She was needy sixty years of
age at the time of her death and
had been under the doctor's care
for some time. About three weeks
ago she was taken to Vancouver to
be operated upon; the strain, however, proved too much for her and

Burrell Addresses
Enthusiastic Gathering
Scores Reciprocity Agreement in Eloquent Speech
There was a large gathering on
Monday last in the Opera House
to hear Mr. Martin Burrell, the
Conservative candidate. Mr. Burrell has always been a popular
man in the Okanagan, and the
hearty and enthusiastic welcome
which he received Monday night
is sufficient evidence that his popularity has not decreased any since
his-last visit.
The meeting was marked by the
orderly attention which was paid
to the speakers, Mr. Burrell's
magnificent address being listened
to without a word of opposition.
Dr. Boyce, who occupied the
chair, briefly opened the meeting
and introduced the first speaker,
Mr. J. A. McKelvie, of the "Vernon News," who accompanies Mr.
Burrell in his campaign tour.      .
Mr. McKelvie delivered an enthusiastic, fighting speech, attacking the Reciprocity agreement
with great vie r.7
Speaking of the candidate he
said he believed that nowhere in
the Dominion was a gentleman
more capable of presenting the
case as it affected fruit-growers
thair Mr. Martin Burrell. Yale-
Cariboo had possessed the distinction of having the only fruit-grower
in the Dominion Parliament. Mr.
Burrell had been engaged inl-fruitgrowing for many years arid knew
his subject from .A to Z. When
this question . of Reciprocity had
ariieii*-»rnhfe -House aw7#r*
Burrell had delivered his masterly
speech in defence of the. fruitgrowers, Mr. Clifford Sifton had
declared that he had never heard
the subject handled in so masterly
and convincing a fashion.;,His
arguments were absolutely unanswerable.
: There were three candidates in
the field, he said, but the Socialist
candidate might' be eliminated as
he had volunteered the information
at Enderby that he would not
canvass for votes.   • .
He was pleased they had such a
gentleman as Dr. K. F. MacDonald
as an opponent, and knew he
would conduct a clean campaign.
He was surprised, however, to see
him stand in support of Reciprocity, as he had been one of a committee of the. Vernon Board of
Trade a few months ago who had
passed a strongly-worded resolution condemning the agreement.
He was, of course, free to^chapge
his opinion if he wished, and he
had a good precedent for this in
Sir Wilfrid himself, than whom no
one had pursued a more tortuous
course on this question.
Mr. McKelvie dealt at some
length with the effect of tbe agreement on the fruit industry, its evil
effect on Canadian Jtrade between
the different provinces, and the
danger which it opened up of
ultimate fusion with the United
Mr. Martin Burrell, who was
received with wildest applause on
rising to his feet, then addressed
the meeting. He opened his remarks by thanking the people of
Kelowna for the splendid support
which they had given him at the
last election-of 1908 and for the
victory they had enabled him to
win in spite of the disadvantage he
had been placed under in having
the election deferred: The difficulties of contesting the seat in the
Conservative interest had been
increased tenfold by the knowledge that the Liberals had already
been returned with a large majority.
That injustice had now, however,
been done away with.
The dissolution of'the House,
said Mr. Burrell, which had led to
the present election, had occurred
in. a most spectacular way. No
one, not even the rank and file of
the Liberal party themselves, had
known but what they were going
on for some time longer. The
government had gone out in a
panic with cold feet. They had
begun to realize, that every day in
which they delayed appealing to
the country on the great question
of Reciprocitv they were, losing
ground. The people weie being
educated. A comparatively small
opposition had won a great victory
over a powerful opposition by
compelling them to appeal to the
country on the measure. The fact
that those present were going to
have a vote on this tremendous
question was entirely due to the
opposition. They were determined
they would not let the matter go
through and tie up the people to
such a bargain without giving them
a chance of decision. But for the
stand of the opposition the agreement would have been railroaded
through the House and the mischief done.
The Imperial Conference. "
They had come, at *he present
time, to a period of transition in
the history of the nation when
they would either tie up the
scattered units of the empire, so
that they would work in • harmony
together, or they would face'the
danger that the empire would
undergo a process of "disintegration. •
it was to consider ways arid
means of averting this danger that
the Imperial Conference had been
originated. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
had attended the last conference
and had there shown a lamentable
want of knowledge of Canadian
conditions, and had taken a posi-:
tion which was* absolutely indefensible. Mr. Asquith had made the
suggestion that before any of the
colonies took any step which
would affect the well-being of the
empire at large they should consult with the rest of the colonial
premiers. Here was an offer
which the Dominion had been
waiting fbr arid wanting for years.
Sir Wilfrid had refused that offer.
He did not want to consult with
the rest of the empire lest Canada
should get embroiled in some of
its difficulties. He was craven
enough to take advantage of the
protection which the empire afforded, but was afrai d of the responsibilities which it involved.
SirWi-fricTa Policy of National Defence.
The bond Ifetween Canada and
the British Empire, arid the allegiance and reverence of the Canadian
people for the British flag were
real and strong, continued Mr.
Burrell. Sir Wilfrid had taken the
position that if Great Britain engaged in any war. not immediately
affecting* Canada, Canada should
have the right to remain neutral.
On this principal had been evolved
his scheme of imperial defence, and
had in consequence drawn upon
himself the hostile criticism of the
Press of the Old Country. It was
not possible for Canada to sit on
the fence in such a matter of life
and death. They had got to be
either in the empire or out of it.
•By adopting such an attitude Sir
Wilfridhad forfeited the confidence
of the electors. The speaker knew
many prominent Liberals who had
declared' they would not support
a premier who look that stand.
Reciprocity the Vital Quetlion. -
Coming to the question of Reciprocity Mr. Burrell said it was the
duty of every voter in this cause of
the greatest national importance to
lay aside all party politics and
think the problem out as one
which vitally affected the prosperity
of every one of them. If every
man would do this he had no fear
of the result on the 21 st.
It had been asked, " Where was
Mr. Borden's mandate for opposing
Reciprocity ? " He might ask in
return " Where wns the mandate
of the Liberals for bringing up the
question of Reciprocity ? " No
government was- invested with
authority to bring up such a
measure which cut right down into
the public life without finding out
the will of the people. They
should first appeal to the public
and get a mandate. The present
government was, in fact, a government of the people for the people,
but they had forgotten Abe
Lincoln's final clause—"By the
people I"
Liberal speakers were saying
that all Canada had been in favor
of Reciprocity for years, therefore
they had a mandate. This Mr.
Burrell denied. He did not deny
that once in the beginning of its
history the country had favored
Reciprocity. At that time there
were no transportation facilities,
no export trade. The country was
in its infancy, and such a treaty
would no doubt be a benefit.
Mr. Burrell went on to sketch
the early history of jStrade relations
with the United States and the
disastrous position in which
Canada found herself, when in
1866 the United States had wi'h nit
a word of warning abrogated their
treaty, practically saying that
Canada must come into union or
starve. The little band of men
who at that time controlled the
destinies of Canada had had too
much courage and heroism to take
the message as it was intended.
They had risen superior to every
disaster, and by maintaining their
independence had built the foundation of Canada's prosperity
There may, said ,Mr. Burrell, in
those   days   have   lingered  some
the cream off our markets by commencing shipments weeks earlier
than we could do. Commencing
in the extreme south long before
any of our fruit was ready, the
Americans could keep up a regular
succession of shipments which
would leave but the remnants of
a market for the B.C. growers.
The injury to the fruit industry,
said Mr. Burrell, was so apparent
that it scarcely' needed any discussion. Mr. Fielding himself admitted that the agreement would
give the fruit industry of B.C. a
staggering blow; Did they like
staggering blows] Were they
going to support" a government
which dealt out staggering blows >
He could not understand how any
man in the fruit industry, even if
he were the strangest Liberal,
could support a proposal which
inflicted such a great injury on his
The hope of being able to obtain
cheaper food and other supplies
was a delusion. He had heard
many amusing arguments to this
effect, some concerning goods
which would not be affected by
the agreement as they had been on
the free list for years.

question.'   The Americans

j our markets, but they also wanted
desire for Reciprocity, but as time
went on the desire  had  vanished.
When    the    Liberals   went   into
power in '96 Sir  Wilfrid Laurier
had publicly declared that he was
not in favour of  Reciprocity, and
when they appealed1 to the nation, .
iri 1904 and again  in   1908 there | Americans
was no mention of the matter.     If
the  country had   given any mandate  on the  fiscal  policy it was
thgrt it. remain  as  it  is.    But the
government had proposed to make ■-:*•-
an absolute change in the tariff
and that without any investigation.
Were the electors going to support
men -who played fast and loose
with their promises in that way ?
" Who made this treaty ? " asked
Mr. Burrell..' Two men had gone
down to Washington and made it
without even consulting the members of their own party. Two men,
ill qualified fpr the task, had practically swept aside the whole
policy of Canada. Mr. Fielding
had admitted that they had no
data on which to frame such an
agreement. He had gone so far
as to declare that no data, was
necessary as "Canada was always
in favor of Reciprocity anyway."
There were two phases in which
the Reciprocity agreement must be
considered, the economic and the
national—its effect upon the trade
and commerce of Canada and the
way in which it would affect our
relations with other countries.

terms in order to secure their raw

resources of the United States

Effect Upon Fruit Induatiy.
Its effect upon the fruit industry
would be particularly disastrous.
Practically the whole of this great
valley was dependent upon the
production of fruit, and the immediate effect of the pact would be
the lowering of prices to the grower
by the flooding of the market with
American fruit. It was argued that
the growers would get the advantage of a market of ninety millions.
But what was the good of it > It
was already chock full of others at
lower prices. Nearly everything
which had been placed upon the
list was already lower in price in
the United States. A reciprocity
treaty between two peoples who
were producing different things
would be good, as it would make
possible the free interchange of
goods. But this proposal meant an
arrangement between two peoples
who were producing a surplus of
the same things. There was not
much sense in trying to get a foothold in the United States markets
when they were already shipping
out three times as much as Canada.
It was not likely that very good
prices could be got in a market of
that kind. The present tariff Was
framed to protect only those of our
productions which the States produced in greater abundance.
In the case of fruit. If we were
to admit that product free the great
fruit-growing districts to the south,
with their advantages of warmer
climate and more highly-organized
methods, would be able  to  take

An interesting ceremony took
place at 10 a.m. this morning at
the home of Mrs. R. Morrison, snr.,
when Miss Kathleen Morrison was
married to Mr.Clarence Chittenden,
of Penticton.
The ceremony, which was a
quiet one was performed by Rev.
A. W. K. Herdman, the happy
couple leaving later by automobile
for Vernon, en route for the coast.
Miss Morrison, who has a large
circle of friends in Kelowna, has
been the recipient during the past
week of many presents. Miss Eva
Copeland a few days ago entertained to tea the Girls' Auxiliary
of Knox Church, who presented
Miss Morrison with a silver-mounted bean jar. The bride was also
the recipient of a " shower " at the
home of Mrs. McKay.
Mr. Chittenden was formerly on
the staff of Messrs. P. B. Willits,
leaving to commence in the drug
business in Penticton.
No little sensation was caused at
the beginning of the week by the
arrest of Mr. Kendrick. the^ leader
of the KeloWna Band on a charge
of theft. Several storekeepers in
town had been missing articles of
late, and suspicion falling upon
Kendrick a search warrant was
issued, and the missing goods
found in his room. He was at
once arrested and brought before
Magistrate Boyce Tuesday morning,
when charged with the offence he
admitted his guilt. He was committed for trial at the next assizes.

Monday, morning - and. ..only . the
mail bags which the flying postman
was carrying from Hendon to

Hubert had just got away from
Hendon with 120 pounds of mail
when the machinery of his aeroplane went wrong and the machine
era*hed to the earth, burying the
aviator under a mass of debris.
Both of Hubert's legs were
broken and he buffered other injuries, but the mail bags on top of
him acted as a buffer and saved
him from being crushed to death
by the weight of the engine.
The aerial postage service was
inaugurated under the auspices of
the British post-office. The points
of departure and arrival were
respectively the Hendon aerodrome
and Windsor castle, the distance

The Church That Stands In the Field
of Forty Footsteps.        q
The church In Woburn square. London, is said to occupy tbe site of the
"Field of Forty Footsteps," to which
a tragic legend attaches.    The story
dates from the days of Monmouth's
rebellion.    According to  the  version
given in Mr. J. S. OgilvyV'Relics and
Memorials   of   London   Town,"   two
brothers fell ln love with a woman who,
either from callous vanity or fearing
reprisals froin the unsuccessful suitor,
would not say wblch was to be the
favored swain, suggesting tbat they
should fight a duel and to the victor
she  would  give   ber  charms.    They
came from tbe towu to this suburban
field.   The woman calmly sat down to
await events.    She  had not long to
wait, Judging from the number of footprints, wben one of the brothers fell
dead,  and  as tbe  victor approached
*he held out her arms to greet him,
when, with a sudden revulsion of ieel-
ing for his brothers death, he slew her
ns she stood, and, turning the weapon,
he drove it througb his own heart.   So
they were found stiff in death with
the   footprints   stamped   in   the   wet
clay,  where  they   remained  indelible
through   summer   beat   and   winter
frost;   no   green   thing   would   grow,
nor any man build himself a dwelling
there.   Streets were erected all round,
but it was not until  tbe nineteenth
century that men took heart of grace
and built a church  there,  when the
consecration of the ground rolled back
the curse and the memory of the legend grew faint and faded away.

A   Parting  of the   Hair   From   Which
We've  Partly Parted.    •
What has become of our well known
fellow townsman tbat used to brush
his hair two ways from a line extending from crown to collur and swing
the ends over bis ears'/ He was a
leading citizen. He sat in the next
pew in front at church aud always attended the shows. He worked in- a
bank in St. Louis and was mate on
one of tbe Mississippi river steamboats. He was a floorwalker In a New
York dry goods store and kept a saloon
just off the main street. Usually he
wore a cluster of diamonds.with a little chain attached iu his shirt front.
He was a conductor on the day express, a Mason and an Odd Fellow. He
practiced medicine nnd worked in tho
boot aud shoe store. He had been to
California and played cards for money.
Well, he's still in town, although
greatly changed. It was all the barber's fault. When he was iu his prime
and known to'everybody tbe barber
used to trim hair.- Later he began to
cut it. • It wasn't long before our well
known fellow citl/.en was nipped by
the shears, his locks curled on the calico pinned around bis neck nnd rolled
to the floor, and there wasn't anything
to pnrt. When the barber's ruthless
shears cut their way to the very scalp

know that the "cebbies" wore a livery
all their own. She did not see a policeman either, so she approached a youth
who was standing on*»the corner of
Fifteenth street with her bashful question.
"Please," she began, "are you a hansom man?'
The youth raised his hend and
twirled his mustache ingratiatingly,
smiling with deprecating assumption
of modesty.
"I"am so considered," he replied.—

are not inseparable from motor-boat running.

Mrs. Watherston Tells of, Her Task
With Her Husband From Coom-
assie, Where sthe Rails End, Into
the Uncivilized Lands—A Handful
ol Englishmen Govern Huge Native Population.
Mrs. Watherston contributes to tho
January Nineteenth Century a vivacious account of how she and her husband went to their "outpost of oar
Empire" in West Africa:
"Many miles from the surf-washed
coast is a long ridge, rising out ot a
huge expanse of gently undulating
country; on that ridge, is a European
station, a little corner of our Empire,
where a handful of Englishmen livft
and work, and govern an unthinkable
number of natives.
"To reach it you must go by ra'l-
way from Sekondi; and very early
one morning in December, 1908, we
started on the twelve hours' journey
to Cooinassie. Down at the iron-roofed station - all wns bustle and confusion; nearest tlie engine, the cars.
were full of natives, their, bright-
colored cloths wrapped closely round
them, against the chilly air of the
morning — such a medley of women
and babies, men and boys and girls,
some strolling idly about, some dragging weirdly-assorted bundles from
car to cur.     •
"Nearer the end- of the train smartly dressed 'colored ladies and gentlemen' carried on somewhat stilted conversations in very indifferent English,
as they stood about the platform or
leaned out of• the windows. The last
coach was a special one. reserved for
us; our 'boys' wwre settling in U»
luggage, arranging things in the tiny
kitchen compartment, and putting out
inviting-looking deckchairs on.. the
observation platform.
"It was an entrancing scene to me,
and only just at the end I turned-
away to take a last look at tha sea, .
and listen once more to the boom of
the surf. Then there was a clanging
of bells and whistles, the shoutad
good-byes of the friends who had
come to see us off, and the train
moved slowly up the incline towards
the mist-veiled hills that hid from
me the secret of Africa.
"Coomassie is the last touch with
civilization; there the railway ends,
and ten dnys later we set on foot to
do the last three hundred miles of our
journey. I remember standing at the'
end of the broad road through Ihe
Zongo, waving good-bye to the men
who had ridden out to wish us Godspeed, and then, turning awiiy from
the houses and people wo hud only
gone a few hundred yards when I
found it was suddenly dark, and
strangely quiet. The broad road had
become a narrow path, where no ray-'
of sunlight ever falls, and where
growth and vegetation have gone on,
unhindered for neons of time. The
noises of the .town, the sound of
voices, all were gone, and in their
place w»_? a stillness which made me
feel I must speak in a whisper. I
have never lost my dread of the for-,
est, though the first feeling of awe
eventually^wore off; it always, tells
me of the force and immensity of
Africa, and while I admire I am
"For six days we trekked on, generally walking, but sometimes in our
kimmocks, arid sometimes riding
when the road was good enough,
sleeping in.tents at night, till gradually the forest g'ew thinner, there
were little patches of country flooded with sunshine, and the harrow
•trip of sky to which my eyes had
become accustomed changed to an increasing expanse of hard, relentless
blue. Then one morning we came
suddenly to the River Volta, the
boundary between Ashanti and the
Northern Territories, the line between
forest and open country.
. "After crossing the Volta it is all
open country, nnd our marches began in good earnest. At a quarter to
five my husband would sound his
whistle, and • somehow—I have never
fathomed how—five o'clock would find
ua~.uttY-.ig~ urcMAtoDt ■ in- Mic~-n_iuuta Ot
the compound, amidst the babel of
shouting and scrambling which always accompanies the packing up
and sorting of loads.
"Those early mornings were hours
I can never forgot, and one day especially has fixed itsolf in my memory.
We were the only living things in the
hush around us as we slipped into
the, grey before the dawn, and the
clean soft air that came across miles
of desert seemed to have a greeting
for us. The grey turned to pale gold,
I Qould see the dew spark linj on the
grass, but still all waa silence—the
earth dared uot breathe until the
day bad come. It ctiine st last with
s. flush of tender pink, and then,
growing bolder, turned to flame and
eriuMon, kiased the clouds with' the
tight, and whir.pered to the trees.
The world was awake Hgain, a myriad
insect*, filled the air with song, and
the birds woke echoes down the path
we .were treading.
"Five hours later the same world
lay gasping in the fierce relentless
beat, and our column moved slower
'and slower, as one by one each car-
tier put on his rough sandals to protect his feet from the burning ironstone.
■ "Evenings on trek are very delightful too; the welcome change to cool-
>*Ms and dark, the change of pleasant fatigue, and then nt last, when
all the camp was still and the 'boys'
|asle«p like dogs on their little mats,
i we would go to our mosquito-netted
beds on the far eide of the compound,
light iri the open, and sleep like children, with only the gorgeous canopy
; «f stars overhead, the open bush

war and far.

Mr. Frank R. Austin, who has
been travelling through the Okanagan in the interests of the " Saturday Sunset" has some good things
to say of Kelowna in this week's
issue.    He writes as follows :—
Kelowna, located almost midway
between Penticton and Vernon and
on the east shore of the lake is,
without question, the most prosperous town in the valley. With
the largest area of fruit lands under
cultivation behind it, the town
enjoys healthy business activity and
has a substantial and steady growth.
The business section extends for
several blocks on either side of a
wide thoroughfare leading up from
the dock. The stores are modern
in window design and equipment,
and resemble large city shops
rather than the usual countrified
store invariably met with in smaller
centres of population. Every line
of business seems to be well repre-
sented.and three banks transact the
banking business of the district.
A noticeable feature of Kelowna
is the number of beautiful homes.
There are many fine residences
standing on acre lots, surrounded
by beautiful gardens and shade
trees. These fine homes indicate
in an unmistak°n way the wealth
of the country district adjoining
the town. Up on the benchland
back of the town we saw the K.L.O.
orchards, which are said to be the
most extensive in the world. We
drove for miles in all directions,
and orchards in every stage of
growth skirted the road on cither
side. When once an apple orchard
comes into full bearing it is almost
an unfailing crop from year to
year, and one could easily understand what a valuable asset a good
orchard such as we saw would be.
If the fruit grower could get full
market price for the apples he
shipped, there would be tremendous profits in a good apple
Real estate at Kelowna is not
high. The town has experienced
a steady growth, but as yet has had
no boom. It is reported even now
that the Kettle Valley road will run
a spur line as far north as Kelowna
from near Naramata; but this is
only heresay. Certain it is that
with such an abundant fruit crop,
and the necessities of such a thriving town, it will not be many years
before a railroad will be obliged to
enter Kelowna, and to the man
who has holdings in real estate
great profits will repay his investment, especially if made now.
Kelowna was the one town on my
whole trip that looked like a splendid chance for profitable investment with handsome returns in
town property.

Dug Wells v. Drilled Wells.
The importance of a clean wholesome
water supply to the farmer cannot be overestimated. Water is such a constant need
of every-day-life, and enters so much into
every domestic and farm operation, that
without a splendid supply life becomes a
Not only is it necessary to have an abundant supply, but it must be pure. No
precaution is too great to ensure this purity of the domestic water supply, for the
health of the en'.ire family depends upon
The location of the well should be
chosen with care, and above all it should
be drilled. The dug well is a source of
danger, uncertain in its supply, reeks with
germs of typhoid and other fevers, requires cleaning for dead mice, rats, etc.,
annually, and surface drainage can never
be cut off.
The drilled well cuts off snrface seepage
is reliable in dry weather, often flows,
needs no cleaning, the casing excludes all
living animals and insests. There is no
danger of anyone falling in, it can be put
down at the back of the house, and is
rapidly sunk to any depth necessary, and
you need not wait for the water to settle.
It is much cheaper than a dug well, and
more certain in its results.

William Burgess last Wednesday
swam the English Channel from
South Foreland to Calais. Swimmers for many years" have been
trying td accomplish this dangerous
feat, many of them failing when
within a short distance of either
shore. The only man to previously
swim the channel with success
was Captain Webb, who later-met
death trying to go through the
rapids of Niagara. Burgess has
been trying for years to emulate
the feat of Captain Webb of 1875.

mile of the goal only to be swept
away by the receding tide.

being able to prove his claim.
The humble and irritating cricket
bids fair to become, after all, a
favorite. M. P. Simms, a prominent
entomologist, - declares that the
cricket has an insatiable appetite
for grasshoppers' eggs and eats
them by the million. The female
grasshopper deposits' her eggs in
the ground. The cricket, according to Mr. Simms, has a peculiar
aptitude for finding these deposits,
and a ravenous maw after he once
gets into the egg pod. The extermination of the grasshopper, which
destroys thousands of acres of
grain in the north-west, seems to
rest with the question of providing
more crickets. This discovery is
looked upon as an important one
by entomologists and by crop
experts. .   J-   ■■    '   ■

-Legislation looking to the establishment of a third ecclesiastical
province in Canada was inaugurated last Friday in the general synod of the Anglican Chnrch, at
London Ont. The new province
will comprise the dioceses of Columbia, Kootenay, Caledonia and

as British Columbia. The other
two church provinces are Ruperts-

The Canadian Covernment is

'Nelson people have become so
alarmed over the operations of the

Many women in the city have
become prostrated with, fear whilst
almost every business block and
residence is under guard by armed
watchmen. The police force of
the city is small and the chief
feels that the danger of his men
being shot while patrolling dark
alleys under the impression that
they may be firebugs is so great
that he has ordered them to don
the uniforms which were discarded
when the trouble first arose.
Sosuspicious are people becoming, even of their fellow-citizens,
that it is almost impossible to walk
along the quieter streets without
being followed and watched until
one's residence is reached and
entered, while twice ■ watchmen
have been held up at the point of
a gun under the belief that they
might be incendiaries.

from manufactures in Canada and
the preventing of further investments. At the present time there
were over $ I $0,000,000 invested
in American factories in Canada
which were helping to build up
Canadian commerce. We wanted
the Americans in here on those
Senator Beverage and other
American statesmen were quoted
as advocating Reciprocity to prevent the drivihg-of American capital over the' line into Canada
which was building up its industries at the expense of their own.
England was the only place
where free trade was found to
work at all and that was because
the Old Country had few natural
resources and wanted to get its
raw materials cheap.
Any  injury   to   producers  and
manufacturers must inevitably react upon  wages and  the   whole
country would surfer.
Destroy Hope of Imperial  Preference
and Hurt Interprovincial Trade.
Not only was the agreement an
economic disadvantage but it would
destroy all hope of imperial preferential trade. Sir Wilfrid Laurier
had repeatedly pledged himself to
the doctrine of Imperial Preference,
but the pact would kill all hope of
such an achievement.
President Taft had warned the
American House that if they did
not pass the Reciprocity Agreement now they would never have
the chanco again. There was going
to be, he said, a bond of Empire
round the world which would build
up the strongest trade relations in
which the United States would not
There was probably a majority
of people in the Old Country who
to-day favored a scheme of preferential tariff, but all efforts in this
direction would be rendered futile
if the pact became law. It would,
moreover, destroy or badly cripple
interprovincial trade between various sections of the Dominion.
May Lead to Commercial and Political
Union With States
By passing the pact we should be giving
the United States part control of our tariff,
we should be yielding to a certain degree
control of our own affairs. It was not
healthy to put it in the power of the great
American trusts to bring pressure to bear,
on our industries and fiscal policy.
Where would all this lead ? For in
dealing with this question we could not act
entirely for ourselves. We had too look to
those who came after us.
Mr. Burrell dealt carefully with the dangerous, position in which Canada would
place herself by submitting to this interlocking of trade relationships which might
ultimately lead to complete fusion of interests, ln a few years Canada's trade would
have been diverted from its present channels and inextricably entwined with that
of the United States. Suppose the States
should then demand complete political
union, or as an alternative raise the tariff
wall again. Where would Canada be then?
It would mean complete disruption of her
trade, and force upon her the necessity of
making a fresh start. There was no need
to take such a risk.
The agreement was then a bad bargain
economically and bad also because it endangered the unity of the Empire.
At the close of his remarks, Mr. Burrell
announced that a question had been
handed to him which read, "Would Mr.
BurreU be in favor of women having the
suffrage ?"
Here was a question which' had placed
many a speaker before Mr. Burrell in a
delicate position on a public platform, and
and it was a tribute. to the candidate's
eloquence and fluency that he managed to
extricate himself so gracefully -and with
such evident satisfaction to. all parties.
Although he said the granting of the franchise to women was a provincial matter,
and therefore out of his sphere as a candidate for Dominion honors, personally he
was «n favor of women h&v.ng - the .ran-
In appealing fbr the votes of the constituency Mr. Burrell said there was little
doubt aa to the result of the election, but
he warned his hearers not to be indifferent
but to regard their votes aa protests against
Mr. Burrell was loudly cheered on resuming his seat after one of the most eloquent and impressive speeches ever heard
in Kelowna.
The following afternoon Mr. Burrell and
his supporters drove out to South Okanagan where a meeting was held in the
school house.
