$500 voted1 b^; the'council eajf ly in
^*ho year, fee-paid."' A resolution
was passed authorizing payment.
Af.yy A resolution was also adopted
'■"';"thatthesum of $150 be paid to
H. Blakebofoughrsecond engineer,
this being in line with arrangements
made with him."
In explanation Aid. Leckie. said
. that Mr. Blakeborough had during
the year taken his certificates as a
second class engineer, which was
the highest certificate in B.C., and
was now equal in rating to the
chief engineer. He had been getting $100 per month but was now
entitled to higher pay. He had,
too, done a good deal of- extra
work in connection with the installing of the new plant. To avoid
-. changing the staff and losing Mr.
Blakeborough's' services, it had
been decided to grant the extra
sum. v
A formal motion respecting the
approaching election of mayor,
aldermen', and school trustees was
-..passed-fixing nomination day as
Monday, January 8th, and polling
Thursday, January 11 th.
Mayor Sutherland mentioned
that the council had discussed, informally the question of increasing
the number of aldermen, and they
seemed all in favor of it. To do
so, however, would require the
unanimous, vote of the whole
council.
As Aid. Dalgleish was not present it was decided to adjourn the
meeting until afternoon in order to
secure his attendance.
Aid. Copeland said he would
certainly like tb see another alderman elected. The work had been
extra heavy this year, and when
one alderman happened to be
away bn holiday, it was often difficult to get a quorum.
Mayor Sutherland said it was
easy enough to increase the number of aldermen. Some little
question arose, however, as to
which ward the7 new alderman
should represent. Personally he
1 would like to see the ward system
done away with altogether. That
would need a by-law and a petition representing half the assessed
value' of the city. With such a
large number of people away that
would be almost impossible just
now.
The Council met again at 2
o'clock in the afternoon. The only
item of business was the passing
of the following resolution' " That

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS
1912.
To the Electors of the City
of Kelowna.
Ladies and Gentlemen,
1 beg to announce that I
am in the field as a candidate
for the Mayoralty., and I
solicit your support, pledging
myself, if elected, to give you
a sane, reasonable and economical administration, and to
work with all my strength for

Christmas Tree
The annual Christmas tree and
entertainment in connection with
Knox Church was organized upon
a bigger scale this year, tha Opera
House being engaged for the
occasion. The affair proved a
great success, about 500 people
attending. The joy of the youngsters when they caught sight of the
big tree laden with gifts of all
kinds, and illuminated with little
electric lamps was unbounded.
The room was prettily decorated
with evergreens and flags.
The Rev. A W. K. Herdman
acted as chairman. He said they
were glad to welcome so many,
friends, and asked the audience
to remember that that was the
children's night. The functions of
a chairman he said were to " look
•unny, speak honey, give money,
and be funny," but dieclaimed
possession of these (unctions. He
would tell them tha story bf how
the children cam* to hang up their
stockings on Christmas eve.
The speaker said, one Nicholaus
lived in a part of Italy amongst
people who were very poor. Every
Christmas he used to throw a purse
of gold into the houses; and to
save him trouble the inmates got
in the way of hanging their stockings (or purses) outside the windows. The custom spread to
colder countries where the children
hung their stockings or purses inside the fire-places instead. By
and by gold got scarce and then
other gifts were substituted, and as
Nicholaus never seemed to grow
old he was called Saint Nicholas
or Santa Claus.
A programme of drills, recitations, choruses and songs by the
children followed which reflected
the greatest credit upon those-who
were responsible for their training.
The programme was as follows: y

A humorous dialogue, " Leap
Year in the Village with Only One
Gentleman,".ended the program.
The embarrassing position of Mr.
Jeddidiah Brown, M.A. Ph. D.
was admirably presented by Angus
McMillan, Miss Nettie Tait taking
the part of ■" Widow Barnaby,"
Miss Edith Glenn of "Matilda
Dixs," Miss Jean Harvey of " Miss
Smith," Miss Delossa Fraser of
Frhncina Barnaby" and Miss Fanny
Copeland of " Hannah Staples."
. After the dialogue the appearance of old Santa Claus sent a
thrill through every youthful breast.
He did not stay, however, to distribute the prises, owing to other
engagements, but in a graceful
speech delegated that duty to the
teachers. And well did they do
it. There were .happy little people that night when all had dispersed about 10 o'clock.

MUNICIPAL ELECTIONS,
1912.
To the Citizens of Kelowna:
At the request of a large
number of citizens I have
consented to stand for the
office of Mayor; for 1912, and
respectfully solicit- your vote
and influence at the'coming
Municipal Elections.

The ratepayers of Rutland met
again Friday last to re-consider the
school question.
A record number were in attendance, and the subject of school
site and the kind of building necessary was freely discussed. The
minds of the majority were well
made up, and an almost unanimous vote was given to move the
school about a half mile further
north, which would put it in the
centre of the bistrict.
Owing to the rapid development of the district, the. meeting
was very strongly in favor of petitioning the department to erect a
four room brick school, and a motion to that effect was put through.
After the meeting the question
of formjng into a Rural Municipality was taken lip, and discussed.
Everyone seemed in favor of the
proposition, and committee was
formed to confer with the Ellison
and Glenmore districts, when a
joint meeting might be held, probably" in Kelowna, and the subject
gone thoroughly into.
The Christmas service at the.
Methodist church was well attended and enjoyed by everyone. The
music excelled anything before attempted, the anthems going with a
swing and vigour which evidently
enthused the pastor who preached
from the usual Christmas text an
unusual sermon, one which explained fully the under-lying principles and thoughts of Christmas-
tide. The anthems ware: "' When
Jesus was Born" (Simper.) " Oh,
little, town of Bethlehem," (Shuey).
" Arise Shine," (Simper.)
The annual Sunday School entertainment was held on Tuesday,
December 26th. The church was
crowded with the parents .7and

Province Gets Control
of Railway Belt
Jurisdiction over all water matters in the Dominion belt lands of
British Columbia has bsen transferred from the government at Ottawa to the provincial authoritm.
Notification to this effect that an
order-in-council had been passed
to bring about this change in jurisdiction was received last Thursday
by Premier McBride from Hon.
Robt. Rogers, Minister of the interior.
The; right in and jurisdiction over
all waters within the Railway Belt
was recently decided by the Judicial Committee; of the Privy Council to exisi'in the Dominion government, which, has, however, not
considere^sand promulgated regulation* in^ater matters. It h*_d
been practically agreed when Hon.
Messrs. McBride, Bowser and Ross
were at Ottawa that for the time
being at least, the jurisdiction over
water matten within the Dominion
lands should be handed over to
the Province, uniforrnity and an
avoidance of conflicting titles being
thereby,,secured. The just adopted order-in-council carries into
force effect the Federal Government's promise in this important
matter.
Big Fruit Convention
to be Held at Ottawa
Arrangements are being completed by Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture, for the holding
pf a fr.'it convention in Ottawa
early in the new year. The feathering will be a large one, and will be
representative of-the fruit growing
interests of all Canada, various associations and adminstrative  bur-.
eaus,
Nominations for council and
school trustees will take place on
Monday, January 8th, from 12 to
2 p. in., and the polling the following Thursday. Sis aldermen will
be elected this year instead of five.

exhibition, which promises, to be
something better than any fruit display ever before seen in this Country, inasmuch as it will represent
tbe best results in every branch of
the industry, as far as the season
will allow.
A convention semewhat on these
lines was held in 1905, but next
year's will be upon much broader
lines and more comprehensive in
its scope.
Th'e reorganization' of the fruit
section of the agricultural depart- .
ment will probably be postponed
until the ideas of the convention
are heard.
Christmas Eve Fire
There was at least one person
in town to u'hom Santa Claus
brought' anything but good chaei,
the dawn of Christmas morning revealing a blackened heap of ruins
where had stood the day belore
his humble abode.
On Sunday evening about 8
o'clock the shack on Richter Street
occupied by S. L. Sharrock burnt,
and-all his property consisting of
carpenter's tools, bedding, clothing
etc. with it.
Mr. Sharrock wss out at the time
and it is supposed the lire started
from some clothing that was drying over the stove. The brigade
were called out, but the shack be-
irg a light structure with a tent
roof was practically burnt before
they arrived. The-popping of a
box of cartridges which were
reached by the fire caused some
little alarm for a while. Sharrock
practically lost everything, except
the clothes he stood up in, even
his hat being burnt. Some sympathetic neighbors got together a
subscription list and raised money
enough to fix up the tent again and
buy bedding.

A good programme of games and
music has been arranged, and the
W. C. T. U. will be pleased to see
as many young people as possible.
An offering will be taken for the
benefit of the hospital.
One source of supply at least for
the city's firewood will be shut off
this winter. Already the stock of
slabs at the saw mill has run out.
The run on these for the past year
or two has been enormous, and it
has been difficult to keep up with
the demand.
The heavy falls of snow during
the past week have put the roads
into ideal shape for sleighing, and
sleighs and cutters are at a premium. Sleigh parties have put every
other form of amusement into the
shade.
To-morrow night is the concert
and dramatic entertainment to be
given by the Country Girls branch
of the Hospital Aid. Opera House
at 8:30.
Mr. R. F. Munson had a nasty

Kelowna,     B. C.

The fruit packing schools which
the Dept. of Agriculture is conducting here in connection with the
Farmer's Institute are to be commenced at once, Mr. J. Gibb having been appointed instructor with
directions to start operations as
soon as the classes can be got together. This is as it should be.
Last year the classes were delayed
until March, when the opening of
spring, with its call for work on the
land, prevented many from entering.
Rutland and Ellison have this
year entered enthusiastically into
the scheme, and it is probable that
a double school will be held at
some point in Rutland. Other districts, however, including Kelowna
have not shown so much interest,
and so far the requisite number of
pupils for a school in Kelowna has
not been made up.
Some of this hesitancy about joining the school may or may not be
due to criticism which has been
levelled against the packing houses
of refusing employment to graduates of the packing schools, preferring Japs or Chinamen. This
accusation was made at the last
meeting of the Farmers' Institute,
representatives from South Okanagan giving it as their reason for
not having a packing school this
year.
From enquiry at the Farmer's
Exchange it seems that complaint
in this respect had been limited to
one individual, who had, it seems,
Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,—Through the colurrns if
your paper we wish to express the views
of one fruit packing concern on ' the sul -
ject of amateur fruit packers, or in other
words, graduates' of the packing schools
conducted under the supervisiori. oi the
Government.
We have been well informed that the
packing concerns have been very harshly
and wrongly criticised by members of the
Farmers' Institute and in order to show
the public that the fruit shipping concerns
are working in their best interests as far
as fruit packing it concerned, a few lines
in this direction should be quite acceptable
to not only the young men and women
wishing to learn the art of fruit packing,
but also the outside public, who take a
great pleasure in standing back and find
ing fault.
First of all understand that the packing
houses are hot entirely charitable instil i-
tions, with unlimited packing tab!' s,
presses, etc., to say nothing about the
attention that would be required to wat'.h
over new beginners, and the wages thoy
would expect to get when gaining actual
experience. The average concern requires
all the space available, and cannot congest its packing department with graduates
seeking practical experience, unless thi_y
are to receive some consideration from
the new beginner.
Secondly, time is money and experienced men must be employed who can cover
the work with speed, and get perishab'e
fruit ready for shipment at the prcper
time.
Thirdly, graduates of packing schools
cannot expect to step into a fruit packing
house and demand experienced men's
wages.
It is unnecessary to say that fruit packers
are badly needed in the Okanagan, and a
young man is allowing a golden opportunity to slip past him when he does not
make up his mind that he is going to
educate .himself to be a practical man,
not only as to how a box of apples should
be packed, but also acquaintance with
varieties. He should educate himself in
such an all round way that he can tal e
charge of branch packing houses.
By way of suggestion, let us say lo
many of our new beginners : take packing
lessons, then approach the packing houses
and offer your services at a nominal re'e
of wages until you have got the practical
experience. As soon as this object is
achieved the much sought for wag s
problem will so adjust itself. Don't ce- -
sure the fruit concerns because they won't
accept of your services on a par with experienced men.

Col. Sam Hughes has succeeded
in prevailing on his colleagues the
importance of a plan to improve
the methods of uniforming the
militia.
Work on the construction of the
line of railway to the Hudson Bay
is to be proceeded with at once.
It is to be a government-owned
and government-operated line and
a line of ships owned by the Dominion Government may operate
between the Hudson Bay and
Europe.
The government of the Commonwealth of Australia has under
consideration the construction of
a transcontinental railway, which
will connect South Australia with.
Perth, in Western Australia, the
bill for' which is at the present
before the Commonwealth parliament. The length of the line
surveyed is 1060 miles, though the
engineering difficulties are not so
great as compared with Canada.
The greatest obstacle is that of an
adequate water supply on the
route, but a liberal outlay of
$15,000,000 is provided for this
item.
A political issue of the first
prder has been raised in Great
Britain by Mr. Asquith's statement
that the Government proposed
next session to introduce a bill for
adult suffrage, to be extended to
women if the Commons so desires.
The occasion of the statement was
the presentation of a memorial
signed by ninety M. P.'s, which
showed that out of a population cf
35.000,000 only 7,904.655 were
enfranchised.
President Taft's special message
to Congress on Thursday dealt
with the Panama Canal as follows:
" The very satisfactory progress
made on the Panama Canal last
year has continued, and there is
every reason to believe that the
canal will be completed early as
the first of July, 1913, unless something unforeseen, occurs.
Important Bank Amalgamation ,
The directors of the Eastern
Townships Bank have decided to
enter into an agreement with the
Canadian Bank of Commerce, by
which the interests ot the two
banks will be merged, subject to
ratification by the shareholders of
the Eastern Townships Bank. This
will mean the consummation of the
largest bank merger that has yet
taken place in Canada.
The basis of the union is an even
exchange of shares, namely, two
shares of Bank of Commerce stock
for one of Eastern Townships bank
stock, the par value of the former
