Aid. Jones drew attention to the
fact that there was still some of the
excavation - made in . constructing
the cement sidewalk along Bernard
and Glenn Avenues which was not
filled. He asked if it was the in-
tention of the board of works to do
anything with it.
Aid. Dalgleish. said that if the
intention of the Board ~ of Works
was carried out the poles would be
moved- along Bernard Ave. and
the road graded out full width as
far as the Presbyterian church. •*•
Aid. Jones announced in' reference to Mr. W. T. Ashbiicjge. who
had been asked to investigate the
question of a sewage system, that
he would have his report ready for
submitting to the council by the
end of the .week.
The mayor announced that the
Kelowna Land and. Orchard Co.,
had signified their willingness to
reserve 80 acres of land for the
purpose of a sewage scheme, whenever the city was in a position to
take it up.
Referring to the city band, mayor
Sutherland pointed out that the city
had promised a grant of $50 par
month, and asked the council's
' opinion as to whether thev should
continue to pay it. The band, he
said, had practically gone out of
Aid. Jones did not think they
ought to pay if they were getting
no benefits from the outlay. H?
suggested however that the question be left until the next meeting
and in the meantime the state of
*the band ascertained.
Mayor Sutherland stated that as.
he would be going away shortly
for about ten days to attend "the
convention of the Union of B.-C
Municipalities, it would be.well to
appoint someone to act as mayor
in his absence.
A resolution was passed appointing Aid. J. W. Jones acting mayor
during the absence of Mayor Sutherland.
The meeting was then adjourned
to Friday morning.
John Taylor Channel, an old man
of ninety-two, was found guilty of
manslaughter at New Westminster
last week and sentenced to two
years imprisonment. Channel is
the oldest prisoner in the history of
the Canadian courts.
The banquet which had been
arranged to do honor to the local
member in the Dominion House
on his recent election and his subsequent elevation to the responsible position of Minister of Agriculture, took place in the Opera House
last Thursday evening.
An enthusiastic welcome was
given to the Hon. Martin"Burrell on
his arrival by the s.s. " Okanagan "
soon after 3 o'clock. Mr. Burrell
was accompanied .by Mrs. Burrell
and his private secretary, and a
large party of supporters from up
the valley. Messrs. H. W. Raymer
arid R. F. Morrison, as president
and secretary of the Kelowna Conservative Association received the
hon. guest on behalf of the local
party. They were supported by
a large number of the prominent
conservatives (and liberals, tod) of
the district. Several. automobiles
were waiting to take the party to
the Palace Hotel where a deputation waited upon him. on several
matters of local interest. The rest
of the afternoon was spent in an
.automobile trip around the district. -.#   •
During the day the committee
charged with the decoration of the
hall were busy transforming the
interior": of the Opera- House. A
large Union Jack was suspended
in the centre of the room with
streamers of red, whiteand blue to
the corners. The w^alls. were
of the district, with pictures of the
Royal family and prominent Canadians. "
The banquet.itself was attended
by some 200 people the long tables
being inadequate to provide seats
for all who bought tickets. Some
forty or fifty of the leading men
from up and down the lake were
The menu, which included
oyster soup, turkey and cranberry
sauce, and abundance of other
good things, was provided " by
Messrs. Biggin and Poole.
After the'feasting was over chairs
were- turned round and cigars
lighted ready for the speech making. Telegrams conveying regrets
for inability to attend were read by
the secretary, Mr. R. F, Morrison,
from Mavor Sutherland, the Hon.
Premier McBride, the Hon. Thos.
Taylor, provincial Minister of
Public Works, Mr. L W. Shatford,
M.P.P., and the Hon. Price Ellison,
provincial Minister of Agriculture/
The toast list was opened in the
usual way with " His Majesty the
.King," proposed by the chairman
of the evening, Mr. H. W. Raymer,
the meeting joining in the national
. Mr. John Dilworth was the first
speaker, and in proposing the toast
of "Our Leaders," Mr. R. L
Borden and Mr. Richard McBride;
he said it was a pleasure to toast a
man like Mr. Borden who had
made ■ good from the first, and
would no doubt continue to make
good. He had the country at his
ack and when he had got men in
the cabinet like the Hon. Martin
Burrell, he had got men who
were well qualified to rule. Mr.
Richard McBride he characterized
as the grandest man in the province to-day, and one the province
should be proud of.
Mr. J. A. McKelvie, of Vernon,
replied. He commended the
people of Kelowna on the great
success which had attended their
efforts in doing honor to their
member, the Hon. Martin Burrell.
, Speaking of the. new premier,
the Hon. R. L. Boiden, he said
that when the affairs of the country were placed in his hands they
were placed in the hands of a really
great man, who was far superior to
to the conception of the average
politician. It was fortunate that
such a distinguished leader as Sir
Wilfrid Laurier had given place to
such another great leader as Mr.
R.L. Borden.
In Mr. Richard McBride we had
an astute, earnest man, in whose
the pro-
his enrly
handstheprovince had passed from
a condition of chaos to its present
high place, and too much credit
could not be given him for the
work he had done.
Our provincial member, the
Hon. Price Ellison, he said, needed
no eulogy. All over the Okanagan
were monuments to his enterprise
and ability. -
He referred to the great satisfaction which had been felt all over
the Okanagan and Yale-Cariboo at
the news that Mr./Martin Burrell
had been raised to the cabinet. He
believed that the people of Canada
from the Atlantic to the Pacific
thought that whatever might be
said of the rest of the cabinet
there, had been no mistake made
in selecting Mr. Burrell. The newspapers, too, were unanimous in
their approval.
He would not be doing his duty,
said Mr. McKelvie, if he did not
make kindly reference to Sir Wilfrid Laurier, There was no exultation over a fallen foe. A tremendous question had been decided, but he felt a measure of sympathy as he regarded the efforts of
many years by the man who had
been the most distinguished Canadian of his day. He hoped he
would have many years of prosperity and happiness as leader of
the opposition.
• Mr. J. M. Robinson in an ; a musing speech full of interesting reminiscences, proposed " The Housfe of.
Commons    and    pur  "
Guest." He enlivened
ceedings with yarns of
missionary efforts in preaching the
'"gospel of the sunny Okanagan"
and telling his/friends who were
shivering in the north-west of the
haven of rest to be'found in the
"Italy of Canada," and with extravagant' eulogies, of Kelowna and
its people. .-•>
Coming to the subject of the
toast, he said he had followed
closely^ the" career of the Hon.
Martin Burrell, and had always
found him courteous as a politician
and a gentleman, and one who
knew his business and had the
confidence and support of the best
men in Canada. He could not
help noticing that the newspaper
press had been unanimous in favor
of Mr. Burrell as minister of Agriculture. He was the right man in
the right spot at the right time.
We should hear a good deal of
Mr. Burrell during the next fourteen or fifteen years.
.The toast was drunk with much
enthusiasm, and singing of "He's
a jol'y good fellow."
In rising to respond to the toast
the Hon. Martin Burrell said that
of all the tasks which a speaker
had to face, the task of replying to
such a toast was the most difficult.
It was easy, during the heat of an
election campaign- to-go out in the
face of opposition and make a
fighting speech when one had a
cause to defend, but it was not so
easy to speak satisfactorily to ones
self when meeting all the1 old tried
and true friends, and to attempt to
voice one's appreciation of all the
good wishes and congratulations
which were heard on every side.
When he looked around the hall
in which they were assembled and
saw the gathering of typical western
men, full of vigor and earnestness,
the beautiful decorations, and the
excellent repast which had been
prepared, he almost wished he had
the tongue of a J. M. Robinson in'
which to express the pleasure he
felt (laughter and cheers).
The chairman of the evening,
Mr. H. W. Ravmer, said Mr.
Burrell was one of the old-timers
of the Valley, a tried and tTue
friend who had done much in his'
time for the party and the district
and he was glad to see him there
again that night. As for Mr. J. M.
Robinson, they all knew that
amongst the boosters of the Okanagan Valley none could eclipse
the gentleman who had just taken
his seat (cheers). While Mr. Robin
son was one of the best type of
boosteis, he was not a booster who
could not deliver the goods. He
could always deliver the goods.
He was a man who had shown a
wonderful faith in the district, and
strength in his belief in its great
future, and such a man generally
got what he went after. He (Mr.
Burrell) entertained the most grateful appreciation of Mr. Robinson's
friendship and the assistance which
was always so generously given.
There was one thing which
Kelowna could do, continued the
speaker. He noticed on the walls
photographs and pictures of the
National Apple Show at which he
himself had had a considerable
share of the work of judging. In
discussing with^Prof. Van Deman
the awarding of the prize for the
best carload, the latter had declared,
that in the whole of his career he
had seen nothing finer than
Kelowna's famous carload of Jonathans. That alone was enough to
convince any man what Kelowna
could do if she tried.
It was a pleasure to see some
hew face* amongst the old friends
present. Mr. C. A. Stoess he had
known twelve years ago as a bashful young man who was characterized by the modesty and -ability of
the boundary people. He was
glad to know that Mr. Stoess was
doing good worlrin the district
Mr. Wm. Bunting, he noticed,
from Ontario, who was performing
a mission under the department of
agriculture, in preparing comprehensive reports which would be a
valuable guide to the department
in- its future work. When he had
taken his stand in the House of
Commons on the question of
Reciprocity, Mr. Bunting had led
the vanguard, and had made a
most ifotable speech. •
■£ Mr. John. Dilworth he was glad
to see back again in his old haunts.'
It was a pleasure too to see not
only supporters pf the Conservative
party, but a strong sprinkling of
Liberals. - ■ ■ *
He had no intention, continued
the hon. gentleman, of making a
speech; He had done that' five
weeks ago. He had been asked to
reply to the toast of himself and
also of the House of Commons.
The House of Commons differed
from a gathering of the present
kind in pne pleasant respect Any
man who had to speak on any
subject felt that he was met by a
part of the members in a hostile'
spirit. He was often surprised too
when he thought he. was producing
quite a fine effect, to discover that
a good many were paying no
attention at all. > They would be
reading newspapers, or would
sometimes get up and go out. He
had the advantage .at the present
meeting that no one was going
out and that everyone was very
friendly disposed.
He had some amusing remarks

Masonic Banquet
At the regular meeting of St.
George's Lodge A. T. & A. M. on
Friday evening last. Several members of Miriam Lodge of Vernon
paid a return visit, and took part
in the work of the evening. After
the lodge closed a banquet was
held in the small hall, at which
about 60 sat down. The toasts
were few and well received.
"The King and Craft" being
proposed by W. Bro. D. W. Sutherland. W.M. For "The Visitors"
by W. Bro. Knowles of Vernon.
W. Bro. Hamilton Lang and Bros.
Turner, Smith, Rev. Davidson and
others briefly responded. W.
Lang on behalf of the visiting
thren proposed a toast to
George's Lodge," • which was received with musical honors and
replied to by W. Bros. Sutherland
andj. W. Jones.
Several songs and short witty
speeches contributed to the enjoyment of the evening, and everyone
felt that the "Junior Warden's
Toast" had brought to a close on*
of the best meetings conducive to
a closer faternal spirit among the
Masons of the valley.

Mr. James McEachern returned

Next Sunday is world's temperance Sabbath in the Sunday schools.
The CP.R. has replied to the
letters of protest written from Kelowna against the Sunday boat that
the change is merely an experiment
to see if it is wanted. Last Sunday
it was reported the " Okanagan "
han only one passenger.
The s.s. " Okanagan " failed to
appear as usual Wednesday morning from Penticton. The high
wind pf the previous night, it
appears, had caused the boat to
break from her moorings. She
was driven upon to the shallows
at the foot of the lake and damaged
so badly she had to lay up for the
day. The " Aberdeen" brought
down the mail from the north
during the afternoon.

who left here with her husband
only a few weeks ago ^or their old
home at Dresden, Ont., will regret
to learn of her death there. Her
husband, it will be remembered,
died on the way down. It appears
that they both had the misfortune
to catch severe colds on the train
which in Mr. Brown's case turned
to pneumonia, he dying in hospital
at Chatham.

made at " Dreamland " on Tuesday

the hall was packed, quite a numbet
being unable to find seats. Fifteen
slides,, the work of local amateurs
were thrown upon the screen, the
majority of which- were splendid
samples of the camera's work, and
provided food for the discretion
ofthe audience who acted as judge.

to make on a man's first impressions
on entering the House of Commons
and the wholesome levelling effect
of life in that institution. He
referred also to the many trials of
public life generally, and urged his
hearers to refrain from too hasty
There was some compensation,
however, ih meetings like the present, and the generous exhibition
of loyal friendship would make
the burden lighter and cheer him
with the knowledge that all the'
time he was* making strong and
warm friends. There were various
ways of killing a man—either by
ignoring him altogether or by
damning him with faint praise, or
killing him by overpraise. There
seemed to be a grave danger that
he would be killed by over-praise,
and he would have great difficulty
in living up to all the kind things
which had been said about him.
They had just come through a
•great campaign, when the whole
district had been surcharged with
enthusiasm, and they seemed to be
there to discharge some of their
enthusiasm that night.
The 21st of September had been
a great red-letter day in the annals
of the empire, and an exhibition of
patriotism which had proved that
the emblem on the wall of " One
Flag, one-King, and one Empire "
had a real and vital significance.
The new government, in entering
upon its duties, had by no means
an easy task. They had a great
many onerous and serious responsibilities to fill, not only to Canada
but to the whole Empire. Although
as the census had shown they
were only a small people of a
little over seVen millions, and as
yet only scratching, as it were, in
a great big country with vast possibilities, yet when we remembered
that in 1770 the population of
England was only seven and a-
half millions, one began to realise
what seven and a-half millions of
patient and earnest people could
do if they had to do it.
Touching upon the question of
Imperial naval defence. Mr. Burrell
said that in that particular matter
the great word Duty, reverence
for which was a mark of the
English people, would enter largelj'
into their deliberations. Nelson's
famous words : ." England'"expects
that every man will do his duty "
were watchwords which eminently
fitted R. L, Borden,- a leader whom
it wasfan honor to- follow, and - the
people of Canada could feel sure
that with him the words would
have something more than an
empty sound.
Going back-to the recent campaign, Mr. Burrill said they certainly had had an election in Yale-
Cariboo. Some people called it a
walk-over, but personally he
thought they had had quite a
strenuous time, though he had
been troubled with no grave doubts
as to the final result—a majority of
2,041. When they thought of the
up-hill task of 1904, they had cause
for gratitude that they had been
able to convert a minority.of 61
into a majority of 2,041. He wished
to thank not only the people of
Kelowna, but of the whole Okanagan for their splendid support.
Although it had not been a personal
question on account of the great
issue at stake, and though he
believed that any conservative in
Yale-Cariboo running on such an
issue would have received the same
support, he- would be foolish not
to admit that he had a great many
kind friends who would have supported him anyhow.
His appointment aa Minister of
Agriculture had caused him to
disappoint his Kelowna friends at
first, but possibly it had given-
added zest to the present gathering.
His hearers would no doubt be
pleased to know that not only
from the Okanagan and Yale-
Cariboo' but from all over the
Dominion had come'letters of congratulation on his appointment. So
many, indeed, that it was impossible to reply lo more- than a
fraction of them.
In having the temerity, to accept
a position in this cabinet he confessed to a'natural reluctance. He
knew that if B.C. returned all conservative members a portfolio
-would have to< come to this province and although unwilling to
lose his services to the province he
would have liked to see Premier
McBride go tb Ottawa, because no
one was so strong and' well-able to
fiulfil the duties required. The
invitation to himself had come unsolicited and unasked, and as it had
seemed his plain duty he had
accepted, and would try to fulfil
the task. He would like to feet
that in thic hm had the warm
support of his B.C. colleagues, just
as he would have had pleasure in
supporting any one of them who
might have been chosen.
In considering his duties as
Minister of Agriculture it was
natural in this district to think of
fruit-growing as his principal duty.
He was glad to find it was an
increasing duty; and Was becoming
a question of national importance.
In his first year they were to have
in Ottawa the National-Dominion
Fruitgrowers' Convention, to which
would come delegates representing
fruit-growing interests all oyer
Canada, and it would be his happy
privilege to endeavour to make the,
convention a success.
There were other duties, however, which confronted a minister
of agriculture, and he found he
was supposed to be a kind of
political Ko Ko, and to have all
sorts of jobs, such as the care of
the national archives, copyrights,
quarantine, and the census. '
He amused his hearers by an
account of the storm of delegations
which he had brought down upon
himself when he issued his first
summary of the recent census, and
of his discovery of the abundance
of pressing local needs. He knew,
of course, that there were many
pressing and legitimate needs
which it was the duty of the government to meet, and he would
try to see that they were met.
While he promised to give sympathetic consideration to all requests
he knew his hearers would recognise, as men of affairs, that with
all the wishes in the world it was
quite impossible to meet everyone.
It was a matter of great satisfaction to himself that he had no
public or private promises to fulfil,
and no pledges to redeem—he had
no strings to him. That he had a
heavy task before him no one
realized more than he did, and he
hoped to meet it with the best of
his ability and energy.
He thanked the people of
Kelowna again for the splendid
gathering and the splendid expressions of goodwill.
A wild burst of applause greeted
the hon. gentleman upon resuming
his seat after his most manly and
graceful address.
The next toast was that of " The
Provincial Legislature," proposed
bv Mr. W. A. Lang, of Peachland.
We had had many legislatures in
B. G. said .Mr. Lang in the course
of his speech, some good and some
bad, some shifty arrd some thrifty,
but the one we had now was the
daddy of them all. He" recalled
the deplorable financial condition
of the province when the present
government took hold. The prov
ince was without funds or credit
and provincial cheques were being
sold at. a discount in Victoria. NbVv
they wsresorelyput tb it to find
places to spend their money. He
heartily congratulated the committee who had had charge of the
banquet for the success with which
it had been carried out.
Mr. W. T. Shatford responded.
He regretted the absence of provincial ministers from the gathering
and expressed the hope that now
that B. C. had representation in the
Dominion cabinet, the claims of
the province might meet with
greater recognition at the hands of
the Dominion government. He
was confident that the Hon. Martin
Burrell would be successful as minister of agriculture, and said the
valley was to be congratulated also
in having the Hon. Price Ellison
as provincial minister of agriculture
He was sure they would work in
harmony for the good of the district.
The proposing of the toast of
"The City of Kelowna," fell to
Mayor Husband of Vernon. He
added his congratulations to the
honored guest on the high position
to which he had been elevated,
and said that the people of Vernon
no less than the people of Kelowna would follow his career at
Ottawa with keen interest. He
had many good things to say of
Kelowna, which he described as a
town with a magnificent stretch of
lake shore and with the finest orchard lands right at its door. He
was filled with admiration, he declared, when he saw the many
evidences of < the display of that
public spirit which was so necessary to the development of a new
In the absence of Mayor Sutherland Aid. J. W. Jones replied. He'
voiced on behalf of the'people of
Kelowna the high honor they all
felt at having the presence of the
minister of agriculture at the banquet and also so many representatives from the different towns in
the Valley. They had had so
many congratulation and bouquets
thrown al them that they had come
to believe that Kelowna was no
mean town. He had been proud
to notice on his return after the
summers absence abroad the great
development and improvement
which was going oft in the district.
He spoke of the fame which
Kelowna had already achieved on
account of the high quality of her
fruit products; the many fine buildings contemplated and in progress;
the   growth of the public  schools,
&c.    The citizens of Kelowna had
good reason to be proud • of their
town and  the  rapid advancement,
which was being made;
Dr. W. H. Gaddes' proposed
" Our Local Industries." Although
the subject, he said, might seem
insignificant' when sc* much was
being said about provincial and
Imperial government, yet our local
industries were morft in our minds
■every day. We were living in a
climate where it was pessible .to
grow a great Variety of products—-
lruit, garden produce, tobacco, &c,
and these, too, of the very finest
quality as evidenced by the'number of prizes we had been able to
capture. The great problem we
had to face, however, was not how
to grow the best fruit, nor how to
obtain labor, but the lack of Transportation facilities, and he would
like to emphasize this while there
were so many present representing eveiy district of the Okanagan.
Extensive development in the way
of orchard planting was going on
all around, but unless something
was done quickly he could see
many of our beautiful red apples
lying on the ground for want of
transportation facilities. The present provincial government went
into power on a progressive railroad policy and although much
wa? being done in that way, we in
the Okanagan were not getting our
share. Railways were not being
built sufficiently fast to cope with
the growth of the fruit output.
Even now shippers'were placed at
great inconvenience, but next and
succeeding years would see these
difficulties multiplied many times.
We were too apt to., be satisfied
with the prospect of electric tramways, &c, when what we wanted
was some trunk lines,"capable of
handling a heavy freight traffic. It
was the duty of everyone present,
he said, to press that question
home to representatives of the
governments as more than anything else we needed attention in
that way.
Mr. B. McDonald, of the Farmer's Exchange, who replied) also
spoke on the' transportation difficulty. He considered we' were
getting a very poor deal from the
C.P.R. At the present time when
shipment' of fruit should be over
on account of car shortage they
had still a considerable quantity of
produce to move. The result
would probably be great damage
and loss.
A toast to the Learned Professions was proposed by Mr. C. T.
Daykin, of Armstrong, and replied
to by the Rev. 1 hos. Greene, B.A.,
and Mr. W. R. Bantoht of Enderby.
" The* Press " w6S proposed tty
Mr. R. W. Pooley, and responded
to oy Mr. John Leathley, Mr. Thos.
Bulman and Mr. Walker of Enderby.
The closinh toa*t of "The Ladies'
was proposed byMft J. B. Knowles
the responder   being   Mr.   L.   V.
Rogers B. A.» of the Public School...
Interspersed with the speech-
making were songs bv Messrs Ferrier, Tom Hill, Hamilton Lang and
Geo. Whitaker, which were loudly
It was nearly' 2- a.m. - when the
guests dispersed. Those of the
visitors who had been unable to
firi"d room in the hotels were provided with accomodation at the
houses of friends who kindly came
to the assistance of the committee
in that respect. The Hon. Martin
Burrell was the guest of Dr. Boyce
for the few remaining hours, leaving by the boat ar 8 o'ciock ror

-When sawdust .or woodpulp is
used aapart of the aggregate in
mixing,, the resulting concrete is of
light weight and low tensile strength
but has some special properties
that commend it for certain indoor
uses. Ohaccount of its elasticity

character, it is said to be specially
adapted as a floor veneering for

A novel application of sawdust
concrete has recently been made
in the new public .library building
in Springfield, Mass. It was .employed there as a base on which
to lay the cork carpet covering the
floors. The object was to obtain
a layer into .which nails could be
driven and which at the same time
would holdjhenails.
It may Be laid without joints, in
in a continuous layer one and a
half inches deep, upon paper
spread over the floor that is to be
treated. In these cases the customary proportions for mixing are one
part cen.ent, two sand and two
and a half sawdust. A greater
proportion of sawdust would make
it too absorbant.
