Farmer's Institute /
Annual Meeting
Office:
rs
Elected  for
Year
Ensuing
' • The Annual meeting of the
Farmer's Institute was held Saturday afternoon last. The President,
Dr.' Dickson, being absent, the
Vice-President, Mr. Raymer, took
the chair. Mr. P. Brooke acted as
secretary in the absence of Mr.
John Leathley.
The minutes of the last annual
meeting were read and adopted,
also the treasurer's report showing
receipts of $112.41 and expenses
$67.50 showing a credit balance of
$44.91.       .
The election of officers was then
proceeded with. A suggestton was
made that the same officers be
elected for another term. It was
mentioned however, that the secre-
H\P' tary,  Mr. John  Leathley, had de
clined re-election owing to pressure
of other business.    '
On motion of Mr. Hereron,
seconded by Mr. DeHart, Mr.
Leathley was elected director for
Kelowna, Mr. P. Brooke being appointed secretary.
Dr. Jones proposed and Mr. J.
C R. Harvey seconded that the
remaining -list of officers be as
before.    This was carried.
The officers for the ensuing
year are thus : president, Dr. Dickson;,, vice-president,... H. W. Raymer; 8ec.-trea8., P. Brooke; directors: for Kelowna, John Leathley;
Okanagan Mission, C S. Smith;
Benvoulin, D. McEachern; Rutland,
J. W, Woolsey; Ellison, M. Hereron;
K. L. O. Bench, Mr. Crichton
Spencer. <
Mr. H. W. Raymer was appointed delegate to the Central Institute
meeting at Victoria to be held in
January, with Mr. C S. Smith .and
. J, E. Reekie as alternatives.-~M'Asa-Ai.
Resolutions for consideration at
the Central Institute convention
were then discussed. Dr. Jones
referred to the great service which
was being rendered to the province by the horticultural branch
of the Department of Agriculture.
He submitted however, that the
field of horticulture was too limited
to cover many important matters
connected with general farming,
such as potatoes, vegetables.onions,
hay, >and other farm crops, and
suggested that the government be
asked to establish a branch of
agronomy which would tak^ care
of these matters. Dr. Jones had
mentioned the proposal at several
places during his lecture tour for
the Department and it had been
received with general, favor.
A resolution was accordingly
framed that the government be
asked to appoint an agronomist in
addition to the horticulturist. Mr.
C. S. Smith seconded and the
resolution carried.
The following   resolution'   was

" Whereas, the development of
the horticultural and agricultural
interests in the several portions of
the province are such that it is imperative that better facilities for
shipment be provided, particularly
in the Okanagan Valley;
"And, whereas, the Canadian
Pacific railway and steamboat service is at present inadequate to
cope with the immense trade which
is now and will in the immediate
future be offered for shipment;
"Now, therefore, this Central
Farmers' Institute in session assembled approves of the avowed
policy of the government to give
assistance to railways for the development of the province, and
would ask that such assistance be
given to the railway or railways
having for its object the development of the Okanagan, at the' earliest possible date."
Upon discussion it was decided
'to amend this to refer to the province generally, as more likely to
be considered at Victoria.
The subject of packing schools
then took the attention of the meet
ing. South Okanagan it was mentioned would not hold a school
this year. An application had already gone in for Rutland, and it
seemed as though there would be
more pupils than could accommodated. Very few applications were
coming in for a school in Kelowna
and it seemed as though this would
have to be abandoned.
The meeting of the Board of
Trade on Tuesday night, the last
meeting of the year, was marked
by an unusually heavy list of important matters to be dealt with.
The attendance was large and the
meeting was not adjourned until
after 11.30.
The minutes having been read,
a large batch of correspondence
was taken in hand.
A letter from the Domimion Express Co., was the first one of any
importance. This was in reply to
a request for delivery of parcels in
Kelowna and stated that the matter was receiving consideration and
that a decision would be communicated shortly.
Letters were read from the Hon.
Price Ellison and Mr. Hamilton
Lang in reference to the permanent improvement work on Mission
Creek. The Board of Works, it
was stated, could not undertake
the work unless the people benefitted were prepared to contribute
50 per cent, of the cost.
The matter was discussed at
some length and it was eventually
decided to leave it to the executive
to arrange for a deputation to the
government at Victoria, to put the
case more forciblyjbefore them.
The deputy minister of Public
Works, Mr. W. W. Foster, wrote
on the lake shore road question
that it would be impossible to go;
into it before spring, when the Hon.
Price Ellison would be in. a, position to go over the ground^ personally.       ;
■r The superintendent^ of ;C. P. R.
telegraphs ■repli|d7respStiflnfe' the
delays in transmitting' telegrams.
He hoped Within a month or so to
give the Okanagan a direct wire
to the Coast, which would remove
many of the delays consequent
upon messages passing through
Revelstoke.' He asked for specific
cases of delay.
A report concerning the plots
of land in Washington won by the
Board as prizes at the Spokane
Apple show. Acting upon Mr.
Gibb's report it was decided to
list the land for sale with agents
in Spokane, offering a good commission to effect a sale.
The Summerland Board of Trade
wrote asking the Kelowna Board
to endorse the following resolution :
" That the Secretary of the Associated
Boards of Trade for the Okanagan, be requested to write the Hon. Mr. Hazen,
Minister of Marine and Fishries, Ottawa,
Ontario, pointing out the fact that White-
fish spawn was deposited in the Okanagan lake some years ago, and a few have
been caught in tne past three seasons, which is sufficient evidencetowar-
rant us in making the request that spawn
be provided and deposited in the Okanagan the coming season 1912, the great
depth of water in the Okanagan taking
it beyond the experimental stage in this
respect.
The fear was expressed that the
white fish might not prove an
unmixed blessing, as they were
said to be voracious and destructive to the salmon trout. It was
decided to obtain more accurate
information.
The Angell Engraving Co., wrote
advising delivery of the handsome
new booklets, copies of which
were handed around at the meeting.
The Penticton Board of Trade
drew attention to the meeting there
of the Associated Boards of Trade

~^€€€#§€^
Mr. Harvey drew attention to
the fact that several pupils of last
year's school had been refused employment by the packing houses.
He thought this should be looked
into by the Institute. The lack of
enthusiasm was no doubt due to
that cause.
Mr. Hereron said the trouble was
the successful competition of the
Chinese and Japs who, owing to
their eagerness for money, worked
faster than white men. He said it
would be a good thing if the local
packers could advertise fruit as
packed by white labor only.
Before adjourning the meeting
tendered a vote of thanks to the
officers and directors for their services during the past year. -j
of the Okanagan on January 1 7th
and asking delegates to be appointed and copies of resolutions
forwarded.' The following resolutions were submitted by Mr. Kerr
and carried:
I. Whereas surveys for crown grants
are shelved for six months before being
gazetted after reaching Victoria; and
whereas it is then necessary that they
should be gazetted for two months before any progress can be made; and
whereas, after that the application for a
crown grant is held up for six months
more in the office of the Department of
Lands before anything further can be
done: and whereas such an outgageous
state of affairs is more appropriate to an
Asiatic despotism than an enlightened
part of North America; resolved that
the Associated Boards of Trade request
the Provincial Govemn.ent . to sweep
away this abominable system for ever,
and make an earnest effort to issue
crown grants with the utmost possible
promptitude.
2. (This was a resolution passed at a
recent meeting of the Board in reference
to similar delays in the Land Registry
offices.)
3. Whereas, the Okanagan' district is
enormously under-represented in the
Provincial Legislature, while  other  dis-
• trict8 are absurdly over repiesented (for
v instance, the Boundary mining district
has two members, with a very small
population);-and, whereas, great injury
is done to the Okanagan by lack of representation ;■ resolved that tlie Associated Boards of Trade request ihe Provincial Government to take steps to subdivide the Okanagan into three constituencies, and give each a member.
Mr. Kerr pointed out that the
wording of the.latter was significant. Many proposals had been
made to increase. members for the
valley, but none to sub-divide,
which was the only way to give
each section real representation.
Mr. H. W. Raymer drew atten
lion to the fact that the offorts of
the Conservative Association and
of the Board to have a customs
office established in Kelowna had
met with success and the office
was opened this week, with Mr.
J. L. Doyle as custom's officer.
A resolution of thanks was passed to the Hon. Martin Burrell for
his share in  the  matter.
The following resolution was
prepared and carried :
" Whereas Kelowna has demonstrated
that the lands in its vicinity can produce
the highest class of fruit and has on many
occasions taken the highest awards in
competition with fruit-growers from an
the principal fruit-growing districts on
thiscontinent, thereby advertising the
great possibilities for fruit-growers in
the Okanagan Valley, and whereas all
claasses or varieties of fruit, vegetables,
tobacco, etc., which can be grown at
this latitude and Tn the dry belt have
been successfully grown here;
We, the Board of Trade, would respectfully request that the Experimental
Farm be located in the Kelowna district.
The question of increasing the
appropriation for roads in the district was made the subject of a
resolution proposed by Mr. H. W.
Raymer:
" That the Kelowna Board of Trade
make strong representations to the Provincial Government pointing out that the
amounts set apart for road improvements
in the district are in the opinion of the
Board totally inadequate, ' and asking
that largely increased grants be made in
the immediate future."
and   a   resolution   framed   by D.
Leckie passed :
" Whereas the accommodation at the
present Post Office in Kelowna is very
limited, and there is no accommodation
at all for Customs Department; and
whereas the amount of business in these
two branches of the government service
at Kelowna is much greater than at any
city in the Dominion which has similar
lack of suitable quarters;
Resolved, that this Board of Trade
earnestly request the Post Office and
Customs Department of Canada to erect
a building in Kelowna for the government services mentioned, of sufficient
extent for present business, and also for
the . immense expansion now taking
place. And that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Minister of
Customs, Postmaster-General and the
Hon. Martin Burrell, M.P.
Hon. Martin Burrell
and Fruit Industry
May  Reorganize  Entire Fruit
Department
Royalty Figure in
Wreck of Liner
Hon. Martin Burrell has made a
number of changes in tbe fruit
inspection departmenl. About
half-a-dozen fruit inspectors have
been dismissed on the recommendation of the officials of the
department.
It is also on the tapis that a reorganization of the fruit section of
the agricultural department is being
contemplated by Mr. Burrell.
At the present time the fruit industry is under the direction of
the dairy commissioner, whose interests are naturally with dairy and
not with fruit farming.
Strong representations have been
made by various fruit farming
associations that there should be a
special fruit commissioner appointed. As Hon. Mr. Burrell is himself
a fruit farmer and particularly interested in farming and developing
of that industry, it is almost certain
that the change will be made.

The President, Mr. J. W. Jones,
made the suggestion that in view
of the probable railway developments in the near future serious
steps shonld be taken to bring
the claims of Kelowna both before
the Government and the heads of
the railway companies. He suggested that data be gathered and a
strong deputation go down to. Victoria to look after Kelowna's interests.
The various rumors of railway
surveys and schemes were freely
discussed, and it was decided to
leave the executive to gather the
necessary information.
The need for a better Post
Office for Kelowna was discussed
Discussion then shifted to the
new tourist hotel scheme. Mr. F.
R. E. DeHart related the progress
which had been made. Since the
turning down of the by-law to purchase the corner adjoining the park
the lot had been sold at a greatly
advanced price to the People's
Trust Co., which company had also
undertaken to provide the money
for the hotel. They had guaranteed to put up a building to cost not
less than $80,000, with furnishings
about $40,000. .■"       ■ . .   .
The proposal of an exchange
with the city of a portion of the lot
ia order to give a rectangular space
for the hotel, and leaving the promenade and lake front open for
the city was also discussed.
Mr. DeHart mentioned that any
other portion of the park might be
considered, but the company must
have lake frontage. The company
had plenty of capital at their disposal and proposed to build and
own the hotel themselves. He
asked that the Board of Trade pass
Some resolution signifying their approval of the Scheme.
Mr. F. S. Coates, proprietor of the Lake-
view Hotel, spoke at considerable length
on the project. While he might not be
expected to welcome the competition, he
knew that sooner or latere tourist hotel of
the type proposed would come in, and it
would be a good thing for the city. He
had been a little sceptical at first as to the
size of the hotel, which seemed larger than
was possible for a place of this size, but
the promoters seemed to have definite information and had shewn how the scheme
could be financed. He did not favor the
corner as a Bite for the hotel, but as to
butauing sn titc par*, he «_d net s€C how
it would be any more detriment to the
town than out of it. That class of hotel
would entirely exclude any rough element,
and the usual objectionable features.
The city by renting a ' site might raise
money enough to pay interest and sinking
fund on the whole park debentures. At-
though the hotel business was good in
Kelowna such an hotel would have to look
outside for a large amount of its trade by
advertising and inducing people to come
in, which would be a benefit to the city.
Several speakers followed, heartily endorsing the need for a first-class hotel.
Mr. j. W. Jones said he did not think
there was anyone in the city but what
would hold up both hands for a first-class
hotel, which would provide accommodation for visitors nnd tourists. Mr. D.
Leckie while favoring the building of a
good hotel objected to its occupying any
part of the park.
It was suggested by one that a site
further down the park, beyond the grand
stand could be selected which would be
more suitable.
On Mr. DeHart's suggestion that the
company were willing to meet with say
five men from the Board of Trade and the
City Council to discuss matters, a resolution
was passed empowering the executive to
act in conjunction with the council in
selecting the delegation, which would
meet with Mr, St. Albert's, the representative of the People's Trust Co.
Although the hour was getting late Mr.
F. S. Coatee broached* another important
matter by asking if anything was being
done respecting the acquiring of the telephone system by the City. He had recently been made aware that correspondence was going on respecting its
purchase by on outside company, and he
thought the city should certainly not allow
the system to get away from them.
Mr. H. H. Millie, who was present, then
made the somewhat startling announcement that the telephone system was practically sold—that he had almost completed
a deal wjth the Okanapan Telephone Co.,
At St. Michael's church Sunday

there will be a Christmas Carol

The Presbyterian church is having speeial Christmas music on

Mr. St. Albans, of the People's
Trust Co., was in town this week in
connection with the new hotel
scheme, which his company are
arranging to finance.
The Telephone office will open
on Christmas Day only for the usual
Sunday hours, viz:, 9.30 to" 10.30
a.m. and 5 to 6 p.m.
The British P. and O. liner Delhi,
aboard of which were the Duke
and Duchess of Fife, Princess
Alexandra and Princess Maud,
went ashore near Cape Trafalgar
in a fierce gale early last week, and
is now being pounded to pieces by
heavy seas. All the passengers
have been rescued, the French
cruiser Briant having succeeded in
reaching the ship after lifeboats had
failed and hope was almost abandoned. The Delhi is one of the
finest ships in the Oriental service.
She carried a number of the British nobiliby, who were expecting
to spend the winter holidays in
Egypt.
The Chiistmas tree and entertainment in connection with Knox
church is to be held in the Opera
House to-morrow night, (Friday).
It is to be on quite a large scale
this year, and should not be missed. There are to be two big trees

Aid. Leckie and Aid. Jones referred to
the negotiations which had been made
some time ago by the city with Mr. Millie,
but which were now at a deadlock.
Mr. R. B. Kerr proposed that Mr. F. S.
Coates, Mc D. H. Rattenbury, and Mr. H.
F. Rees be a committee to bring the
council and Mr. Millie together on the
question.
The meeting then adjourned.

Literary Society.
There was a good attendance at
the Rutland hall last Friday when
the Literary Society met to hear a
debate on the question " Resolved
that the city offers' more advantages
tlian the-country." Mrs. Will McDonald was voted "to the chair, and
a pleasant evening was spent.
Rev. W. Vance and Mr. Warden
spoke for the affirmative, while
C. H. Leathley ahd Mr. Duggan
championed the negative side.
- Mr. Vance led off with a speech
(that was noted for its brevity,
though he made up for this latec
on. He claimed that boys and
girls from the country had to leave
home if they wanted to finish their
education, which; could only be
done in the city, and that this disrupted the home; and that in the
city there were quite a'number of
spheres-of work, while there were
at most only four or five - kinds of
work a man could turn his hands
to in the country.
Mr. Leathley combatted these
statements and expressed his be
lief that agriculture was the basis
of all natural 'wealth; and instanced
England which was suffering/ from
the fact that its Jural lite was utterly
neglected in favor of the cities.
Country.property was the best of
aH kinds df security for loans, etc.
Wealth, he claimed, in its best form
must be(permanent, and this was
not so iri the case of city property.
Mr.. Wardep and Mr. Duggan
followed, arid the meeting was then
thrown open for discussion.
. Mr. Vance, in his,reply-pointed
out that the audience should not
confuse the issue. It was not whether the, country'was the most congenial life, but what had the most
advantages. A'-A
On a Vote being taken, (there
being no judges) tKe resolution1 was
carried in the affirmative by 15
votes to 14.
A general' committee consisting
of Miiseslda Fleming, L Bird,
Craig,: Du^giri-«ndiMeijsr8.Clarence

Kelowna's New Customs
Office
Another important step in the
advancement of the city was marked this week by the opening of a
customs office here. Kelowna is
growing out of her clothes pretty
fast, and the nuisance and delay
of having all parcels from abroad
stopped at Vernon for the collection of duty has been a sore spot
for a long time, The matter has
been the subject of agitation with
the Dominion authorities for a long
time, but with very little result.
The recent visit of the Hon.
Martin Burrell, however, brought
matters to a head. A deputation
consisting of Messrs. H.W.Raymer,
J. W. Jones, and R. F. Morrison
waited upon him, and the claims
of the city were forcibly presented.
It is to the credit of the Hon.
Martin Burrell that so little time
should have been lost following
his visit before we had the realization of our wishes.
Kelowna has been made the
same as Vernon, a sub-port of
entry from Revelstoke. One of
the pleasant features too is the
appointment of Mr. J. L. Doyle as
customs officer, an appointment
with which everyone will heartily
concur.
The knowledge that when one
has business with the customs
office, one will be received not by
the haughty airs of some snappy
and pompous official but by the
genial smile of kindly Miv Doyle,
will we are sure result in an immediate increase in the business of
the office. Mr. Doyle at present
occupies quarters behind the Post
Office, but we hope the day is
coming when both the postal and
and customs business will be carried on in a building more in keeping with the growth of the city.     '

Business vs. Sentiment
To the Citizens of Kelowna.
I take this opportunity of directing your attention to various matters that are at the present moment
of the utmost importance to this
city.
During the past few years we
have been making a sure and
steady growth in population ; comfortable homes and substantial
business blocks have been erected,
all revealing faith in the future development of the district behind
the city. We are passing through
a period in this city's history where
it is absolutely necessary that the
very best men that can b-5 secured
should be placed on the Council
Board to advance the prosperity of
the city and carefully guard its very
important interests.
With a keen sense of the responsibilities that fall upon the Mayor,
of this city, I yielded to the solicitations pf men who are concerned
over the problems concerning us,
ahd have Consented to stand for
the position of mayor for 1912.
With the experience of the last
two years on the City Council, and
in touch with all questions affect-
its welfare, I am in a position to
accomplish much for the City
along the lines of :-
Railways entering  the  city and
district.
A sewerage system.
Street improvements.
Government aid   for  public   institutions.
Making Kelowna a tourist centre.
An improved Ferry system.
I ask you to consider these questions carefully.    Are you in   favor
of allowing business principles   or
sentiment to rule your city ?
I trust that you will choose the
very best men available for ihe
council of 1912. It is only on account of these considerations that
I solicit your vote and influence as
Mayor,
Yours for a business adminstra-
tion.

The Italians of Montreal have
bitterly resented the showing of
moving pictures depicting the
alleged cruelties of Italian soldiers
in Tripoli. In one place where
the films were on view,'a crowd of
young Italians rushed the theatre,
tore down all the advertising signs
depicting scenes of the war, routed
the ushers, and fought their way
to the proprietor, forcing- him to
stop the performance. The indignant Italians are asking the
Italian consul to take the matter
up, and they threaten -to return
and wreck the theatre if the pictures are again exhibited.

Mrs. Arthur Stannard, the novelist, who was known by her pen

five years as the result of ari acci*

as "the author to whom we owe
the most finished and faithful rendering ever yet given of the character of the British soldiers."

A reward of $1000 awaits the

Brooklyn that the earth is round.
The money is on deposit in a
Brooklyn Bank. Mr. Morse does
not expect to be called on to pay
the reward to any astronomer or
geographer, for he is certain the
earth is square. The idea that the
earth revolves around the sun at a
terrific rate of speed is all nonsense

Gallopin, of Chaux de Fonds,
Geneva, has just completed a wonderful watch, the only one of its
kind in the world. A pearl, which
weighs forty-five grains and has a
diameter of half an inch, contains
all the works. It took an employee
of the firm fifteen months to hollow out the pearl and fix in the
wheels. The watch, which - is
guaranteed to keep good time and
may be worn as a ring on the
finger, is worth $6,000.

The British Parliament adjourned Saturday last after enacting the
most important legislation in recent years—the veto bill, restricting the power of the House of
Lords to kill popular measures,
and the 'industrial insurance bill,
championed by Chancellor David
Lloyd George. >.' ■
The 1912 session of Parliament
will begin on February 14.
Prior to adjournment the King's
speech was read. His Majesty
expressed satisfaction with 'the
insurance bill and declared he believed it would go far to relieve
conditions of stress in the workers'
lives throughout Great Britain.
The National Insurance Bill was
presented to Parliament for action
by Mr. David Lloyd George, chancellor of the exchequer. It is an
adjunct to the already existing law
providing old age pensions.
Through the operations of this
enactment it is calculated about
9,200.000 men and 3,900.000
women will be compelled to insure. Small deductions will be
made weekly from their wages
and their employers will be compelled to contribute a similar
amount, to which the state adds a
further contribution, these three
items forming the premium. The
deductions from wages and the
employer's contribution will be
graduated according to the insured
person's earnings.
The benefits derived under the
scheme will be medical relief and
a small sum for maintenance during illness, a life pension if permanently infirm and also an allowance in .case of unemployment
except when the idleness is the
result of a strike.
