A petition v\(as received from the
Kelowna Farmers' Exchange and
the Kelowna Canning Co., for . a
plank side-walk.
Mayor Sutherland agreed that
the sidewalk was quite necessary,
but although the work would be
done under the local improvement
by-law, there were no funds available this year.and the matter would
have to stand over to the new year.
Aid. Dalgleish said it was against
the principle of the Board, of Works
to put in plank ^jdeyaUia, but in
that case, the expense oi a cement
sidewalk would be very great
Attention was again  drawn  to
the unsatisfactory  nature  of   the
work being done  by  the scavenger, and it was decided to  engage
. someone else as soon as his term
of agreement expired.
' Mayor Sutherland said that at
one time it had been difficult to
get anyone to undertake the work,
but at the present time there seemed to be quite a number who were
anxious for the job. There were
already some six or seven applications in.
A plan of a subdivision submitted by S. V. Bray, was referred
back tor alteration.
The matter of bringing the newly acquired rock crusher into operation for the preparation of material
for the roads in spring was discussed.
Aid. Dalgleish said that if it were
possible at all, the crusher be got
to-work. If the work were left until January, it would run it pretty
late. Winter was the most favorable time in which to do work of
that kind. ^
Mayor Sutherland pointed out
that however much they would
like to it was impossible to expend
any money this year.
There was no appropriation for
the purpose, and the work would
have to be left for the new council to deal with.
Aid. Jones said that as early in
January as possible the crusher
should be got to work, and as much
rock as possible hauled into town
in readiness for the spring work.
The meeting then adjourned
Monday next, December 18th.
Results of Voting
On Money By-laws
The voting last Tuesday on the
four money by-laws brought forward by the Council aroused
rather morcinterest than usual, the
vote polled, 141, being rather high
for a vote on such a matter. The
results were decisive enough in
each case, large majorities being
cast for three of the by-laws. . The
other, to purchase the corner' of
the park secured only 11 votes in
its favor. No one, however, expected it to pass, the council's only
object in submitting the matter being to shift the responsibility of its
refusal upon the people themselves.
The complete results for the four
by-laws are as follows:
By-law 98, to borrow
$5000 to extend the Water
and   Light  System-
For, 115.   Agst, 22,     Spoilt, 4

The Musical and Dramatic Society held their first concert of the
seaion in the Opera House last
Thursday. The attendance was
somewhat meagre, which was to
be regretted, aa the concert itst-lf
was a really first-class affair, almost
every item on the programme winning enthusiastic encores. The
Society'8 Orchestra, led by Mr.
Whitehead, contributed largely to
the programme, their selections
being highly appreciated. ; The
rest of the programme consisted
of songs by Mrs. J. Harvpy, Mr
Tom. Hill. Mr. Geo. McKenzie,
Mr. F. Pedlar, violin solo by Mr.
Macbean, and a duet which won
the loudest plaudits,- by Mrs. Harvey and Mr. Macbean.
The orchestra was composed as
follow : First violins, Mr. Macbean.

Mr. John Dilworth, 129 Government Street, says the Colonist, has
announced that hewould run, for
alderman inWard Five. At the
election last January Mr. Dilworth
and Alderu.an Peden tied in the
vote, the latter being awarded the
honor by the returning officer on
the ground that having been the
longest resident in the city, he
should be declared elected.. This
principle has always been adopted
where candidates run even. The
chief plank in Mr. Dilworth's platform is the necessity of a better
system of conducting civic business
particularly in regard to street improvements.
To the Citizens of Kelowna:
' At the request • of a large

dealt with at the meeting of the
society. held* ..Satiird ay afternoon
and evening at'"■ Vancouver, in
papers read by the members.
In a brief address, the chairman,
Mr. T. Wilson, Dominion fruit inspector, explained that the society
had originally been formed in
1901, and later affiliated with the
Ontario Entomological Society, but
had-later been allowed to lapse
until a month ago. Mr. R. C. Tre-
herne, Dominion Superintendent
of fumigation, spoke briefly, urging
the ' importance of keeping in
touch with Dominion entomological work;
After the reading of reports from
various fruit growing districts, Okanagan, Kootenay, Vancouver and
Victoria, the following officers were
elected for 1912:- President, T.
Wilson, (formerly vice-president;
hon. president Mr. Geo. Day of

Mr. Ernest F. Gunther, Provin-
incial superintendent of insurance
has just issued, in bulletin form, a
timely warning against carelessness
in the matter of Christmas decoration. The extremely inflamable
nature of much of the material
used for decorating Christmas trees-
etc., and the temptation from their
pretty effect to usd lighted candles'
or Chinese lanterns amongst them
has resulted in many a serious disaster, in which the children who
were being entertained were always the worst sufferers.
Fires due to carelessness in connection with the decoration of
stores, , churches, schools, and
homes for the Christmas season,
says the bulletin, are more numerous than is generally imagined.
Complete statistics are not available
but information collected' shows
that such fires are numerous, costly
from a money standpoint, and attended with much suffering and
deplorable loss of life. It is estimated that last year there were 500
such fires in the United States. "
It cannot be too often insisted
that the majority of fires are preventable. Decorations are dangerous. There should be no carelessness.'
The following are mentioned as
common instances of carelessness:
It is careless to tamper with electric wiring to produce or facilitate
To use cotton batten in a show-
window and on or under a Christmas tree to represent snow.
To allow the inexperienced and
thoughtless to do the decorating;
To hang inflamable material
;wherie it touches or may be blown
or pushed against stove-pipes;
steam-pipes, lamps, gas or electric
light. 7
To use celluloid ornaments in
To allow children to light can-
dips on a tree.
To leave matches where children can get them for that purpose.
To allow childien to-touch an
illuminated tree.
To leave an illuminated tree un-
To allow paper and rubbish to
accumulate in the premises and
about the furnace, owing to pressure of business.
The closing sentence of the bulletin is impressive :— " Let t here
be no Christmas horrors in British

Literary Society.
The Rutland Literary Society
held its opening meeting Saturday
evening last in the Hall. The Rev.
D. J. Welsh gave an address most
appropriate to the occasion on "The
Value of the Study of Literatute."
Mr. Welsh pointed out the pure
pleasure and uplifting influence
which comes from association with
the best minds of all ages through
their writings, and showed how
the society which was being formed
might be made a source of mutual
impro'/ement and mental development to all its members. Mr. Welsh
was listened to with the greatest
interest, and was warmly thanked
at the close.
After the address the meeting
took up the business of election of
officers. Mr. Warden, the school
principal, was: elected president,
the Rev. Vance, vice-president, Mr.
S. Gray, second vice-president, Mr.
C H. Leathley, secretary, Mr. Blenkarn, assistant secretary and .Mrs.
W. McDonald, treasurer.
It was decided to hold the meetings every Friday evening, arrangements to be made for the use of
the hall for the purpose.
A committee was appointed to
draft rules and arrange a syllabus.
Several lectures and addresses it
was mentioned had already been
arranged, and there would be no
difficulty in making each evening
attractive and enjoyable.
Quite a large crowd of people
turned out Tuesday to the auction

East Kelowna
The usual fortnightly meeting
of the East Kelowna Debating Society was held on the 8th inst
There was a good attendance. A
spirited debate took place on the
subject as to whether a man has
the right to dispose of his property
according to his own free will and
pleasure after he has fulfilled all
the demands of the law. The
affirmative was sustained by Messrs
McKie and Leggatt, and the negative by Messrs. Beattie and New-
bold. After hearing the arguments
the meeting decided that the possession of money entails moral responsibilities as' well as legal ones.
Members please note that the next
meeting, at which a paper on
Macbeth will be read, will be held
on Friday next the 15th inst instead
of on the 22nd. 7__
Items from Ellison
(From bur own correspondent.)
An amusing episode took place
in this district a few days ago. A
well known young man who possesses a fine saddle horse, had the
misfortune to lose it. It was
thought the animal would take to
the hills, but having been used to
visit a farm where a sweet lassie
"frae bonnie Scotland" had been
staying, it made straight for there
and went into the stable, until its
owner fetched it.
It has been arranged to hold the
official opening of our new school
on Tuesday January 2nd 1912,
when the Hon. Price Ellison and
A. E. Millar Esq., school inspector
are expected to be present. The
committee in charge are arranging
to have a first class concert, to be
followed by an elegant supper
which will be served in the basement after the concert is over. ,
The question of lowering the
level of Okanagan Lake has been
the subject of innumerable petitions and deputations and agitations extending over a number of
years, and the matter is being revived now by ja petition which is
being circulated up and down the
lake. The scheme has often been
discussed, and most people are
familiar with the proposal to
dredge the river below Penticton,
enlarging the outlet from the
Okanagan into Dog Lake, thus
lowering the level some three or
four feet. .Government engineers
have reported several times on the
scheme, which they have declared
quite feasible, in fact, considerable
dredging has been done during
the last year or two by the Government with a view to rendering the
river navigable. The work, however, has not been sufficient, and
the river is still too narrow and
dangerous for steamers of any
size. What is wanted is a little
more vigorous handling of the
problem so that some really effective work could be done.
During the recent visit of the
Hon. Martin Burrell, this was one
of the questions dealt with by the
deputation which waited upon him
from the Conservative Association,
and he promised his support to
any petition which might be pre-,
sented to the Govenment.
Mr. H. W. Raymer, on behalf of
the Association, has prepaied the
following petition which will be
orwarded for signature to all
points on the lake interested in
the project. Mr. Raymer it might
be said was the 'first to take the
question lip some seventeen years
ago, having waited upon Mr. J. A.
Mara, the then member for Yale-
Cariboo in the Dominion House.
The enormous advantage of the
scheme to Kelowna, where so
much good land might be reclaimed if the lake were low enough to
afford proper drainage is apparent.
Many difficulties ennnected with
the installation of a sewerage system would be solved if the water
table on the low levels were lowered even two or three feet.
The development which is going
on up and down the lake makr-s
it imperative that there should be '
no delay in the carrying out bf the
scheme. New wharves are;being
added every year, and the expense
of accommodating these to the
lower level might in a few years
be considerable.
The following is the wording of
the petition:
To the Honorable the Minister of Public
Works, Ottawa, Canada.
This petition of the residents of th«
several towns and settlements adjacent to
the Okanagan Lake, in the Province of
British -Columbia. County of Ya!e, 4*un_b!"
showeth that
WHEREAS Okanagan Lake in the Province and County aforesaid being, navigable waters and therefore under control of
the Dominion Government,
AND WHEREAS the natural outlet of
said lake is bv Okanagan River, thence to
Dog Lake a distance of approximately six
miles between the two lakes, with a fall of
approximately fourteen feet
AND WHEREAS during high water
Okanagan lake overflows its banks in many
places owing to obstructions in the Okanagan river, such overflow being very injurious to the agricultural development of the
Valley by the submergence of large areas
of the most valuable land, being what is
known as bottom lands
AND WHEREAS several towns are situated along the shore of said lake, or in
\ close proximity thereto the sanitary conditions of which are dependent in a large
degiee upon proper drainage facilities
AND WHEREAS Dog lake and Okanagan lake each being navigable waters, if
dredging was systematically carried out and
the waters of both lakes made mere m a
level steamers could traversn from end to
AND WHEREAS some work has already
been done toward thia end, your petitioners would respectfully ask that you place
a sufficient amount in the estimates to properly carry out the objects herein set forth
and your petitioners as in duty bound will
ever pray &c.

Proposed Provincial
Poultry Farm
The establishment of a poultry
demonstration farm in connection
with the department of agriculture
his been in contemplation for some
time a d it is ro: unlikely that the
legslature at the approaching session will be asked to provide the
necessary funds for that purpose.
The idea is that one such farm
shalj be established in the first instance in the neighborhood of Victoria. About five acres of ground
would be required and the initial
expense would be about $8,000.
After the first year, when the institution has been tried out and the
necessary -experience obtained, two
more similar farms would be established, one in the neighborhood of
Vancouver and another somewhere
in the interior.
These poultry farms are not intended to be in any sense opsri-
mental, but purely for demonstration purposes. It is calculated that
they would be a great benefit to
poultry fanciers, who would thereby be enabled to purchase birds of,
s'.andard breeds and eggs for their
incubators at a reasonable price.
As things now are, British Colurr-
bia poultry fanciers who desire to
improve their stock are compelled
to send back East for eggs or birds.

Only a few days more and
another year will have run its
course, and passed into history.
At present Christmas presents and
Christmas festivities are the uppermost considerations in most people's minds, but as soon as these
are over, public attention will be
turned to civic matters. With the
close of the year comes the end of
the present council's term of office
and once more the citizens will
have placed upon them the duty
of electing new representatives to
cany on the business of the city.
As usual very little is definitely
k lown as to who will be the candidates for public honors—public
sacrifice would perhaps be a better
term, for although no doubt the
position of trustee of the city's
interest and the city's progress and
welfare carries no small honor,
yet the man who essays to take a
share in the running of the public
business, if he do it honorably and
well, must be prepared to make
sacrifices of time and energy greater
than the general public realize and
certainly greater than as a rule
they appreciate.
It is  the privilege   of  the  man
who pays the  rates  to   kick—and
he takes  full   advantage  of it.    If
the  council   is   enterprising,  nnd
bent  on   doing   things,   he   kicks
because the rates show an upward
tendency.    If they are economical
and endeavor  to keep down   expense, he kicks   because   they   do
not in a single year provide all the
conveniences   of  a   big   city.     In
short he kicks this way and that
way, and   sometime5?  in   all directions at once.    Sometimes he has
good reason to   kick, but generally
speaking his kicking  should be a
little more   tempered   with   syrr-
pathetic consideration for a  body
of men who are trying to do their
best under adverse circumstances,
and with little hope of reward.
The coming year promises to be
one of the most important in the
history of Kelowna. It requires
very little prophetic vision to foresee  that  during  the  next  twelve surprises
months many matters of the great
est importance to the future of our
city will come before the council
Railway rumors are coming too
thick and fast to remain rumors
very long. The urgent demands
of the district for transportation
facilities, and the evident awakening of the various companies operating in the neighborhood to the
need of complying with these demands will raise many vital problems involving concessions and
negotiations which will require the
strongest business heads in the
city to deal with. The installing
of a sewerage system, probably the
most urgent need of the city at the
present time, the question of acquiring the telephone system, etc.,
are all matters which can only with
safety be entrusted to men with
cool business ability, and an outlook broad enough to fully grasp
the possibilities involved.
It is to be regretted, perhaps,
that Mayor D. W. Sutherland,
should at this stage have signified
his firm decision not to again contest the mayoralty. From several
years experience, and enthusiastic
study, Mr. Sutherland has become
something of an authority on mun
icipal matters, and his knowledge
and experience would have been
invaluable in the difficult tasks
which will face the new council.
He will however, it is understood,
run for alderman.
The only candidate, so far, definitely in the field for mayor, is
Aid. J. W. Jones. In u.any respects Mr. Jones is well qualified for
the position, Apart from his business experience and cool judgment
he has ample leisure to devote his
time and energy to the duties of
the office—no small consideration
when one thinks ofthe multiplicity
of the demands on the time of the
mayor of a growing city like Kelowna. He has been sufficiently
long in the council to be thoroughly in touch with all the affairs of
the city, and apart from his trip to
Europe has certainly been the most
closely attentive to city business.
For some time past he has been
collecting information on the subject of sewage disposal, and h?s
accumulated a stock of data which
should not be lost.
There will be some change too
in the list of aldermen, and from
the rumors one hears, nomination
day will be   productive   of   some

Addresses Quebec Fruitgrowers.
The Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, delivered an address last week before a gathering
of the members of the Pomological
and Fruit Growers' association of
the province of Quebec.
The minister of agricultnre ad"
dressed the gathering as a practical
pomologist who had spent many
years in the fruit industry. He ad"
vised the fruit growers of Quebec
to establish a system of co-operation, as had fruit growers of the
west, and stated that by this method
alone they could achieve the greatest success.   -  ^~-
He also gave a brief sketch of
the result of the fruit growing industry in British Columbia.

^Processes of Manufacturing Pulp.'
Three processes were used to
manufacture into woodpulp the six
hundred thousand cords cf pulpwood used in 1910. These are
the mechanical or grinding process
and the two chemical processes,
which depend upon the use of sulphite ot soda. Statistics supplied
by the Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior show that
wood used by the mechanical process formed over three-quarters of
the* total during 1910, a greater
percentage than at any time in the
past. Unlimited supply, of clean
water is a necessity in the manu-,
facture of wood by the mechanical
process so that Quebec is the province best adapted for it. Spruce
furnished over four-fifths of the
wood used for mechanical pulo.
Balsam contributed one-sn t :enth,
with small quantities of hemlock
and poplar making up the balance.
The sulphite process accounted for
one fifth of the pulpwood and was
used slightly more in Ontatio than
in Quebec. Nearly seventy percent of the wood used in thia process was spruce, mostly from Ontario. Balsam furnished thirty percent, about three-quarters of which
was from Quebec and the same
province used a small quantity of
poplar in this process. Barely two
per cent of the total amount of pulpwood was manufactured by the
soda process, although Canada has
the distinction of having the oldest
soda mill in America. Quebec
manufactured over three-quarters
of the pulp made by the soda process. This process was the principal method used in the reduction
of hemlock. Of the total used by
the soda process spruce formed
seventy per cent, hemlock seventeen per cent and poplar ten per
cent. Balsam is not adapted to the
soda treatment.
