Meeting of
City Council
A meeting'of the council was
held last Saturday morning, the
Mayor and Aid. Leckie Jones and
Dalgleish being present.
A letten from the Tranquille San-
itorium asking for payment of one
dollar per,day for a patient who
had been sent to the institution by
one of the local doctors gave rise
to some little discussion on the
city's position in such cases. The
opinion was expressed that the
council should have been first acquainted with the intention to send
the man.
Aid. Jones thought it would be
well for the council to meet with
the local medical men and discuss
this matter of tuberculosis. .
A resolution was passed " That
the clerk write the Superintendent
of the Tranquille Sanitorium confirming the action of Dr. Knox in
sending Stephen John Hall to that
institution, and that the city would
pay for his maintenance to the
extent of one dollar per day."
A further resolution was passed,
"that the city health officer be requested to report on the case of
Nicolas Kremer to the council at
itn next meeting." .    "
The appointment of, a city auditor was mentioned, the clerk recom-
" mending that the matter, should
not be delayed as there wa8 fully a
month's work in auditing the' city's
books fof the year.
Aid. Jones reported that he and
•   Aid. Dalgleish'had visited the city's
nuisance ground to investigate conditions,  there.   They   had^ f,0und
7 ,$)$' the scavenger had beei^ftisy
A- lately and  had' greatly improved
matters. ' ^ ■'.'■...   '
In discussing  the  question the
mayor mentioned that.there were
two other applications in  for the
position of scavenger for the next]
year.' •
Aid. Dalgleish,believed the city
. would do better to have its own
teams engaged in that and considerable other work which was ~ necessary in the city. A good man
could be placed in charge and he
believed it would be a saving and
an advantage in many ways.
The mayor said that the difficulty,
with the present scavenger* had
been that he had attempted too
much independent day work which
had interfered with the efficiency
df his services for the city. He
did not think it desirable to
make any changes before the new
■ The meeting then adjourned to
assemble again at the call of the
New Census Probable
There is now; every probability
that th* census of June last -will
have to be taken over again. It is
understood that the question has
already been informally considered
by the members of the government
and there it a very strong likelihood
that a new count will be taken in
1912. A decision will be finally
reached when it is phown beyond
question that the census machinery
broke down in June and that the
returns now in the hands of the
chief commissioner are so hopelessly unreliable as to be useless.
A thorough investigation will be
made on the return of Hon, Martin, Burrell to Ottawa. The new
census will likely be taken on the
English system. In order to have
such a recount it will be necessary
to pass a special legislation and a
vote for the money.
A Scottish service will be held
next Sabbath evening in Knox
church instead of the Sabbath following, when the Rev. A. W. K.
Herdman will speak on Scottish
heroes.   .
The annual meeting of the
Kelowna Tennis Club will be held
in Hudson's Studio, oh Tuesday,

Kelowna's Growing
Fruit Shipments
Emphasizes   Need  for  Better
If anyone is in need of an object
lesson as to the gravity and urgency
of Kelowna's demand for better
transportation facilities he need
only visit the different packing
houses and make some inquiries
and comparisons of fruit shipments
with previous years to realize the
enormous rate at which the production of the district is increasing.
And not only is the rate of increase
being maintained from year to
year, but the pace is being rapid.}'
One hears in a general way of
car shortage and the inability of
the lake' steamship service to cope
with the fruit Output in a few years'
time, but those who are handling
the fruit shipment and watching
its growth, and have something
more than a!general idea of the
amount of fruit which will be produced in the Valley during the
next year or two, know that we
are, on the verge of being faced
with a difficulty which would paralyse the whole district, and set
back the clock [oi progress for
several years.
When one thinks of the thousands o,f acres of young orchards
planted to apple trees, from two
to five years old, and of the proportion which this acreage bears
to the small; acreage at present in
bearing, one gets a faint idea of
the multiplication of the present
output which is in prospect. And
hpw will this be-handled? The
facilities provided' by the C.P.R.
car barge, and the lake steamers
have this year/been taxed to'their
utmost, notwithstanding which the
greatest inconvenience has been
experienced from shortage of cars.
; Fruit has accumulated in the
packing-houses, wjrich several
times have been threatened with
serious loss. At the beginning of
the month when all fruit shipments
should be over there were still a
large number of carloads to move.
There has been no more busy
place in the valley-during the present season than the Kelowna
Farmers' Exchange and some facts
and figures of the past year's work,
revealed in a chat with the manager,
Mr. B. McDonald, will serve to
show how rapidly the packing
business is developing.7. ■■■■>..
- Already this year .Qilfe 230 cars
of produ'ce have beeii^Miipped', by
the Exchange. In October alone
125 cars were shipped, nearly two
and a half times last year's amount
of'52 for the same period. This it
might be mentioned included shipments from the Armstrong branch
which was opened this year, and
before tne season is ended the total will reach 260 or 170 cars.
The striking growth of the Exchange during the last five years
is shown by a comparison of the
turnover during that period. In.
1907 this amounted to only J&28,-
000, in 1908 to $52,000, in *I909
Jo $82,000, in 1910 to $144,000,
and this year the turnover will be
at least $250,000, and it is quite
possible, when the returns are all
in, that, the quarter million mark
will be'well passed.
The great increase ofthe present
year has been in some measure
due to the agressive action on the
part of the directors. Early this
year the Exchange underwent a
process of reorganization, placing
it upon a much more business like
and efficient footing. Up to then
the concern had been run under
the Farmers' Institute act, as a
purely co-operative undertaking,
and moreover with' capital utterly
inadequate to cope with the rapidly growing trade. It is now however incorporated under the Company's Act 1910, with a capital of
$100,000 in 1000 shares of $100
each. Nearly half of these have
already been sold solely amongst
the growers of the valley, and
principally in the Kelowna dictrict.
Branches were also opened at
Penticton and Armstrong, ih
charge of Messrs. F.  W.  Zerener
and F. W. Allen respectively, and
in these places the support cf the
growers has readily been obtained.
Shipments to Vancouver have
shown a noticeable increase this
year, and Mr. McDonald declares
that the whole output could have
been marketed there, but for the
necessity of keeping tKe connection already obtained east of the
Rackies. It used tb be said that
coast was a difficult market bo get
into, but the apple trade generally
and the sale of Kelowna apples
particularly, has no doubt received
a considerable 'impetus fiom the
National Apple Show.     -
Anew departure with the Exchange this - year has been the
shipment of a grade of ", cooking
apples " in open crates (so as not
to conflict with the Fruit Marks
Act). There seems to be a large
demand for this cla3S of fruit on
the prairies, and to the grower the
result has been very little fruit returned on his hands as culls.
Another department-which is
being developed is the storage of
potatoes. ' There" are at present
between 500 and 600 tons stored
in the exchange cellars belonging
to various growers in the district.
For this service a charge of 30c.
prr ton per month 'is made, the
Exchange guaranteeing to protect
them from frost. The advantage
of this to the farmer, is that
shipments can be made -at any
time through the winter in specially heated csts, as opportunity
might offer. If the potatoes were
pitted in the usual way this could
not be done, and it need hardly
be pointed out that shipment during the winter might mean a considerably difference in the price'
realized. '     , v
The potatoes generally seenMo
be of far better'quality than last
y<sar, due' ho doubt to the large,
amount of good seed which was
shipped in.
Somewhere in the neighbourhood of 800 to . 1,000 tons of
onions, have been • shipped this
year. A temporary shed had to
be arranged for the grading and
packing of these. In quality this
year's onions were, in the opinion
of everybody who handled them,
the finest ever shipped.
Altogether, the year's work has
been highly satisfactory, and the
directors contemplate extensive
developments in the future.

The Baptist Young People's
Society is holding a social on
Monday next, November 20, to
which a very cordial invitation is
extended to all. Music and games
will form the programme and
refreshments will be provided. A
collection will be taken in aid of
the society's funds.
Ca_ip Social at the
Presbyterian Church
There was a strange red glow in
the windows of the ^ Presbyterian
Sunday School Hall last Monday
evening, which betokened some
unusual event. It was the camp
social of the Yqung People's
Society and the Bible Class, who
I.ad united forces for the occasion.
Seats were arranged around a
make-believe camp fire, contrived
with electric lamps and red paper,
and the? room was'decorated to
resemble the " forest primeval."
The evening passed pleasantly
with music and games.
"Current Events," were summarized by Miss McNaughton,
while Mr. L. V. Rogers^ gave a
paper on " South Africa." A reading was given by Mr. Reynolds, and
songs by Mrs. J. Harvey, jnr., and
Mr. Roger'.
' Camp refreshments-brown bread
beans, etc., were served to complete the illusion. A feature was
the singing by the audience of such
old favorite songs as "Tenting on
the Old Camp Ground, and " My
Old Kentucky Home."
Fruit Inspectors Condemn States' Apples
Two carloads of apples from
the United States were condemned
by the provincial fruit inspectors
stationed at New Westminster
during the past week. "The fruit
was confiscated because of codlin
moth with which it was found to
be infected.'. Mr. Lyne, assistant
fruit inspector, states that on account of the high reputation-for
cleanliness enjoyed by British
Columbia fruit, it is considered
necessary to take stringent measures to maintain the high standard.
"1 do not think," said he," that
any other district on the American
continent is so, free from fruit
pests as 'British Columbia. The
advantage of this position in trading with other countries that are
also free from these pests is not
perhaps sufficiently understood.
In Australia, for example, there is
astipulation that no fruit may be
imported from any place within
an area of 25 miles of a district in
which codlin moth exists. Now we
have' ih view .a bigf trade with
Australia. In fact, if we had'the
varieties " there are brokers who
could handle 100,000 cases of
apples this season, and considering the fact that of the area planted
under fruit in British Columbia
not more than 25 per cent, has
yet come into bearing, the importance of preserving to ourselves
this future market can well be
understood."    '
Mr. Lyne states that fall nursery
stock is just beginning to come in
and the quality is superior to that
imported in former seasons.
Scavengers on Strike in
New York
The garbage gatherers are on
strike in New York and it is ' expected that the health department
will step in to save New York
from the evil effects of somf. 40,-
000 cartloads of refuse that has accumulated since the men who drive'
the street - cleaning wagons' quit
work because they objected to
night hours. Fear of the strikers
and their friends has kept professional strike-breakers from accepting the high wages oflered by the
city for substitutes. The health
department has sent its men with
several hundred barrels of disinfectant to sprinkle on the piles of
rotting garbage in the poorer and
more thickly populated districts. '

The Department of Agriculture
has this year arranged for short
courses in fruit and vegetable growing to be conducted by the. Horticultural Branch of the department.
It has been decided to arrange
these, where possible, under the
Farmer's Institutes, in which case
these will forego their usual requisition in these subjects.
Short courses will be held during the months of December 1911.
and January* Feburary and March,
1912. -These ' meetings .proved
very popular last winter, and they
already have applications from a
number of districts for their continuation this year..
In general character these meetings are distinct from and superior
to the usual Farmer's Institute
meetings in the following respects :-

have studied conditions in the
province, and are well acquainted
with the numerous local problems.

over two days, morning, afternoon
and evening. This permits of a
thorough 'discussion of all phases
of the subjects in hand.

given to the study qf, soils, their
analysis, treatment, cultivation and

will be given by the deputy Minister of Agriculture, by the Prairie
Markets' Commissioner, and by
prominent fruit growers^

asked to take a place on the programme and lead in discussion.
8; An- attractive programme
will be gotten out for each point,
and the meetings thoroughly ad-
yfeftisedsto«ia^yf .tfsVV'- .
t 9. TTKfe* series of lectures and
discussions will be framed in each'
case to meet local conditions, and
tKe central idea of the short course
is to furnish/real .inspiration and
information for the-best development of the district,
10. A partial list of subjects" is
as follows :-

British Columbia has earned the
reputation of growing the best
potatoes on the North American
continent. The exhibit which
gained this award consisted of
101 varieties drawn from all sections of the province, aggregating
weight about one and a-half tons.
The credit for the display rests
entirely with the Department of
Agriculture. The entire province
was scoured to secure the finest
specimens and Mr. W. E. Scott,
deputy minister of agriculture, and
those who assisted him in the task
deserve the highest praise for the

To the Editor of
"The Orchard City Record."
Dear Sir,—
As one who attended the complimentary banquet tendered the
Minister of Agriculture, Honorable
Martin Burrell, I would like to add
my appreciation of the action of
the committee in charge who were
progressive enough to veto liquor
of all kinds. It is to be deplored
that there are those who would
still use these public functions to
spread the seeds of that which has
done more'than anything else to
drag individuals and nations to the
lowest depths of degradation.
" Slightly Humid" in the last edi
tion of'The Courier " characterizes
the banquet as a " child-like affair,"
intimating it as man-like to drink
liquor. It is a thought, no doubt,
emanating from a perverted mind.
Where are the great commercial,
industrial, educational oi national
institutions that measure a man by
the standard of his being able to
drink liquor? Even those who are
engaged in the manufacture of the
product value the man who is man
enough to abstain from its use.
Again " Slightly Humid" claims it
almost an insult to be asked to
drink a " man's health—to say
nothing of the royal toast — in
water." Where would a toast be
more fittingly drunk in water than
at a political banquet ? Can
"Slightly Humid" instance any
nation made great by the use of
wines and liquor? 1 think not;
but there are instances that the
desire for entertainment of this
kind for the sole purpose of the
gratification of the animal,' nature
of man, has caused the ruin of
nations as well as individuals. No
one but he who has lost all sense
of dignity and desire for the future
of his community and country,
would wish to introduce into that
which touched the government of
his country, the very evil which
added to the downfall of other
We have clubs and hotels where
those who wish to indulge in the
drinking of liquor can do so, but
when a public banquet is held,
either to honor a person or to
further the interests of the district,
it seems a lasting disgrace to the
community if any considerable
proportion feel it necessary to intrude this objectionable feature
before they can enter into and
enjoy the spirit and object of the

Beaver May be Trapped
Until April Next
After a closed season extending
over six years in British Colunbia
beaver may now once more become the prey of the trapper. During the time of its protection, the
industrious little rodents have
multiplied enormously and are
plentiful in all parts of the province. The season will remain open
until April.
Already reports are reaching the
offices or the chief game warden
for British Columbia of numerous
beavers being killed and trapped
throughout the province, as a result of the coming in of the long
deferred open season. It is stated
that as soon as the season ends,
it is extremely probable that a
closed season for a further period
will be declared—until some comprehensive scheme can be devised
for the regulation of trapping.
During the open season, it is noteworthy that non-residents are forbidden to trap or kill the beaver
without having first taken out licenses in this behalf, at a cost of $100.
It has been found necessary

in favor of organic union with other
churches ?" The question must be
answered. "Yes" or "No." There
are four ballots. . One is for the
official board, another for church
members, one for those under
eighteen years of. age, and the
fourth for adheranj* but contributing to the support of the church.
The vote was commenced last

In loving memory of mj' dear
brother, Thomas Wardjaw, beloved son of Mr. and Mrs. Wardlaw,
who was accidentally drowned in
Okanagan Lake, Kelowna, B.C., on
Wednesday, November 23, 1910.
Like the ivy on the withered oak,
When all things else decay,
j    Our love for him will still keep green,
| And never fade away.
Inserted by his brother, D. Wardlaw
We cannot bend beside his grave,
For he sleeps in tha secret sea ;
And not one gentle whisperins wave.
Will tell the place to me.
Although unseen by human eyes,
And mortals know it not,
Yet Christ knows where the body lies,
And angels guard the spot.
Inserted by his father and mother.
