Tragic Death at
Traveller Lying   Dead
Burning Lamp
A tragic death took place in the
Hotel Penticton, at noon last Thursday, which might have caused further tragedy, had it not been for
Mr. C. S. Russell, who rooms at
the hotel. Hearing a noise in the
apartment next to his own, where
a commercial traveller, named C.
O. Douglas, supposed to belong to
Toronto, lay sick, he ran to tlie
door, and on opening it he found
the bedroom in flames, and Douglas lying on his face over a burning
lamp. He dragged the man away
and extinguished the blaze with
the bed clothes. Hearing his calls
for assistance, several boarders ran
up stairs.
Douglas was lifted into bed, but
died in a few  minutes.
Douglas came in by the Keremeos auto stage, the previous Tuesday evening. He had been ill in
bed for the previous day or two
with pneumonia, and it is supposed
he attempted to get out of bed, and
fell on the lamp, which had been
lighted to keep the room warm.
Deceased leaves a wife and two
children in Toronto, to whom the
sad affair has been wired.
Postal Clerk on
.s.s. Okanagan
■ i •
C.P.R. Alleged Cause of Delay
The question of a postal clerk
for the s.s. Okanagan has been the
subject of. many resolutions from
the Board of Trade, but as yet without result. The Summerland Review has something to- say which,
may throw light on. the reason for
delay. - r
"When this matter" says the Review, "was bro.ught before the Post
Office Department, we learn from
an undoubted authority that steps
were immediately taken to remedy
the, matter, and application was
made to the CP.R. Their consent
was obtained to place a postal clerk
on the boat. Thenecessary equipment, it is understood, was gathered, and a clerk selected, and the
necessary changes in the staff were
ordered. Just at this point, however, the C. P. R. withdrew their
sanction to the improved service,
refusing to give the necessary space
on the boat.
If this corporation is-as anxious
to give the Okanagan Lake towns
a good service as they stated when
inaugurating the Sunday boat, they
should not further delay the postal
authorities' desire to improve their

Mr. and Mrs. J. Middleton .have
suffered a sad bereavement this
^week in the loss of their little two-
year-old boy, who was found dead
in bed Wednesday morning. The
little fellow had been suffering
from bronchitis and was attended
by the doctor. He had been improving during the last few days,
but must have had a relapse in the
night and expired without waking
anyone. The funeral took place
this morning. ,

The Social given by the Baptist
Young People's Society in the
Church on Monday last proved a
most enjoyable evening to all present. The games and the musical
items rendered were well aprec-
iated and refreshments did credit
to the ability of the ladies, witness
the vanishing tricks performed by
the gentlemen. There was a good
attendance and everybody had a
real good time.
At the meeting Monday evening
next at 8 o'clock the subject for
discussion will be "Existing wages".
The annual general meeting and
election of officers of the A. & T.
Association is called .for Thursday

The monthly meeting of the
Board of Trade held Tuesday night
was the largest gathering in connection with the Board which has
taken place during the last two or
three years. The reason of this
sudden increase in the attendance
was the visit of a deputation from.
Okanagan Mission on the subject
of the location of the projected
new road to the Mission to protest
against a resolution framed at the
last meeting of the Board calling
upon the government to proceed
with the surveyed lake shore road
between Kelowna and the Mission.
The president Mjr. J. W. James
took the chair, and the usual monthly business was first taken up.
A letter complaining of rowdyism
at the Belle Vue Hotel, Sicamous,
was referred to the superintendent
of provincial police.
A bill for taxes on the property
in Edendale, Wash., won as a prize
by the Board at the Spokane Show,
raised the often discussed questio-
of what the Board should do with
the land. It was felt that some
effort should be made to dispose
of the property, and a' resolution
was passed that Mr. J. Gibb, who
is at present in Spokane as judge
at the Apple Show, be asked to
visit the property and report .upon
its value to the Board.
The following reply from the
superintendent of the C. P; R. telegraphs in response to a request
that the company extend their
system to Kelowna was read:
Sec. Kelowna Board df Trade,
Dear Sir,
Replying to yours of the 6th, inst., I
beg to inform your honorable body that
an estimate has been submitted by7our
management for the building of a telegraph'
line from Okanagan Landing to Kelowna
and it is most likely that an appropriation
will be granted for thia purpose during the
coming year.
Such a line would be very useful for our
own business interests, aa well aa the interests of the business community in your
district. The matter has the strong support
of our own people in thia province, and I
feel quite satisfied that money for the purpose will be forthcoming;
Supt. of C. P. R. Telegraphs.
In discussing the matter of telegraphs Mr. P. DuMoulin drew attention to the fact that a night letter-
gtam of 50 words from the east to
Vernon cost $1; from Vernon to
Kelowna the same message cost
$1.05. The secretary was instructed to write the government.superintendent to have the grievance
A reply to a resolution forwarded
by the secretary tp the government
respecting protective work on the
banks of Mission Creek was read,
which stated that an appropriation
$3,000 had been made for the
purpose. This, it was stated, would
only suffice to carry out some
necessary temporary work, and it
was felt that the government should
undertake work of a more perman-;
ent nature.
In reply to a question, the road
superintendent, Mr. Hamilton Lang
who was present, said 'hat some
time ago he had been instructed
by the department to ascertain the
feeling of the residents along Mission Creek with a view, to their
contributing 50 per cent of the cost
of a larger scheme. He suggested
that the Board help him to get the
opinion of the people concerned.
Mr. D. Leckie said he had conversed with several of the residents
on the subject, and found they
were desirous, before giving anv
opinion, of knowing what the Governments scheme involved.
Mr. T. G. Speer said it was not
alone the people of Mission Creek
who would be benefited by preventing an overflow. He suggested
the calling of a public meeting to
discuss the problem.
Dr.1 Gaddes, on behalf of the
committee appointed by the Board
of Trade to look after the matter,
said he did not think the government officials were satisfied with
the way in which they had to patch
up the creek every year. He had
been interested in the work for
some five years, and he considered
it necessary to frame some scheme
so that the $3000 per year which
is now spent in patching could be
put into permanent work.
After more discussion, a resolu
tion was passed " that the committee draft a resolution to be forwarded to the government asking that
they lay out plans for permanent
Mr. Hereron said that in the
meantime the temporary work
must be done, or the creek would
overflow and do damage.
Mr. DuMoulin moved a resolution that the delivery of express
parcels, a system which already
prevailed in Vernon, should be
brought to the notice* of the Dominion Express Co. This was
A long wrangle then took place
over an account of $12 for automobile hire, incurred showing a
magazine representative around
the district. The matter was eventually referred to the publicity committee.
The question of the  lake shore
road was then taken up, and the
following letter read from the residents of the Mission.
To the President and Secretary
of the Kelowna Board of Trade,
Dear Sirs,
In the Kelowna papers of Oct. 19 we
read a report of your proceedings at the
monthly meeting of the Board of Trade.
Among the subjects discussed waa that of
a lake shore road from Kelowna to Okanagan Mission and certain statements as to
the attitude adopted by the residents of
the Mission were made by Mr. Hereron,
which were so absolutely at variance with
the facts that we have considered it desir.
able o ask your council to allow us to lay
the true state of the, case before you. We
therefore beg your Board to receive a deputation of the residents of the Mission
who will lay our case before you, and we
have asked Mr. Colin Smith, Mr. Burnaby,
Mr. Harvey. Mr. Bell and Dr. Wansborough
Jones to constitute this deputation.
We. believe that the best, interests of
both the people of Kelowna and ourselvea.
will be furthered by th« construction of a
road as short and direct aa possible. The
existing road is very circuitous and is also
difficult for our teams owing to the fact
that there are one or two steep hills on the
route. For twelve months we have been
doing all we possibly could to secure the
construction bf shorter road. We can show
where this road should be, and that it will
reduce thedistance between us by about
2 miles ant) avoid all the hills. Our ob.
jection to the lake shore road ia that it is
not probable that two new roads to the
Mission will be built by the government.
The road, we ask for with practical unanimity will be of great business value to ua
whereas the Lake shore road will be of no
use to us in this way.
May we beg that no steps be taken to
place the resolution which has been passed before the Government until we have
been heard.      '
Our deputation will b« pleased to wait
upon you at any time you may fix.
Kindly let Mr. Colin Smith know the
date which will rait your convenience.
The letter was signed bv thirty-
three names of residents of Okanagan Mission.
The chairman, on behalf of the
Board, said they were glad to see
the deputation from South Okanagan, and were quite ready to hear
anything they had to say.
Dr. W. Wansborough Jones stated the case, on behalf of the deputation. He referred to the offending resolution to which he had no
doubt the government would pay
considerable attention aa coming
from the Board of Trade. It was
fortunate that the proceedings of
the Board were reported in the
papers, and the people of South
Okanagan were indebted to the
press. But for the report they
would have known nothing of the
resolution. He wished to put it
that only part of the case was presented at that meeting, and that
moreover many statements were
made which were not in accordance with facts. He' would endeavor to present the facts and
would ask the Board either to rescind the motion or to postpone
taking actiop for the present.
He described the people of South
Okanagan as a set of struggling
farmers who had not the means of
readily marketing their produce.
Owing to steep hills and circuitous
course of the present road to Kelowna, they were only able to haul
about three quarters of a load once
a day, instead of a full _ load
twice a day. Recognising this fact
they had petitioned the government to make a road which would
cut the distance shorter by about
two miles. Early this year they
had heard the government were
about to construct a road to the
Mission, and  they   had   naturally
New Tourist
Hotel Scheme
Proposal to Erect Modern Five-
Story Structure
While the hotel accomodation
in Kelowna can compare favorably
with a good many of the cities in
the interior of B, C. it has been for
some time apparent that it is inadequate to meet the growing demands of the city. Several times
during the last twelve months visitors have been unable to find
sleeping accomodation, and have
had to be provided for in private
A scheme is being promated by
Mr. F. R. E. DeHart to supply the
deficiency. In furtherance of this
he has arranged to purchase the
triangular shaped plot of ground
at the north-east corner of the
park, reserved by Mr. D. Lloyd-
Jones when the park property was
sold to the city.
This lot is in the form of an
equilateral triangle, 160 feet on
each side, and takes in 160 feet
lake frontage, from the old Farmers' Exchange building west, and
includes the site of the ferry wharf.
The promenade to the Aquatic
building passes through this lot,
and was placed there on the understanding that that portion could be
removed by the owner of the land
whenever necessary.
Mr. DeHart proposes to approach the city for an exchange
which would give him a rectangular piece of ground to the south
of the promenade, and the lake
frontage would be turned over to
the city.
A complete modern fire-proof
hotel he figures could be erected
upon this site, which would look
well from all sides, and not present
any objectionable rear, view to the
public park.   '
Thfecost ofthe structure might
reach to $100,000. Of this sum.
about $15,000 says Mr. DeHart,
already promised locally.  ■'■'"''

Meeting on School Question
A largely attended meeting of
the ratepayers was held at the
School House Friday evening last
The meeting was called for the
purpose of voting for money to
purchase new school grounds, and
of electing one trustee.
The meeting took an unlooked
for turn when the large number
from the north end who were present put in a very strong claim to
have the school moved half a mile
furthet north, whence they claimed
most of the children came.
:" i ne spokesmen for inc nortu
enders were Messrs. Mon ford and
Elder and a strong case was submitted. The desirability of keeping the school in its present central position, near the post office
and store, and of ultimately providing one good graded school instead
of two smaller ones, received equT
ally warm support, to which some
of the north-enders were in favor.
The solution of the more distan1'
children difficulty was conceded
to be the finding of a conveyance
to bring them to and from school,
to which the government were
willing to grant substantial aid.
A motion and amendment were
put before the _ meeting with the
object of deciding the location of
the school, but as the meeting was
a special one, not called for that
purpose the chairman, Mr. Dalg-
leigh, ruled them out of order.
A motion was then unanimously
carried, authorizing the trustees to
borrow $2,000 to purchase a
school site of five acres, the present
one of only one acre being voted
as far too small . for the rapidly
growing number of children.
Mr. J. W. Woolsey was the only
nominee tor trustee, and was elected by acclamation.
A meeting is to be held in the
Rutland small school house on
Friday evening next, December 1 st
at 8 p. m. for the purpose of recommencing the Literary and
Debating society. All interested
are requested to attend.
Fight Orchard Pests
With Electricity
Startling Success Attends New
Electricity as an agent to destroy
the codlin moth and other pests is
the latest innovation introduced in
modern apple orcharding in the
Spokane Valley country where W.
M. Frost, of Lawrence, a practical
grower of Spokane, has made what
is declared to have been the first
demonstration of its kind in the
world. The test was made in a six
years old orchard, and more than
a score of second brood moths and
many green aphis were killed in t
few moments. y
. The apparatus consists of a storage batterv to charge the incandescent light globes, each of six
candle power, which are netted
with fine steel wire coated with
copper and tin alternately. Attracted by the bright lights in the
trees to which the globes are carried
at the ends of a covered wire, the
moths fly against the netting, complete the electric circuit, and are
instantly killed, the bodies falling
into a receptacle placed beneath
the globe.
Women's Missionary
Annual Convention
Delegates of Valley Gather at
Frost estimates that oneHtsat&ry.
to an acre of trees will keep the
moths under control, thus eliminating the usual spraying and saving
many dollars annually for help,
equipment and fluid. He is now
preparing to wire his orchard of ten
acres, containing 700 trees, and
several neighbors who witnessed
the initial' test, are doing likewise.
It is reported that several thousand
acres of bearing apple trees will be
equipped with exterminators by
next spring. If commercial electric
light wires are extended to the orchard tracts, as they are in many of
the valleyS in Washington, Idaho,
Oregon and Montana, the expense
of baH^es may he saved by mak-
irigV^P«£f connection. The cost
of., covering the globes with wire
nets is a small it-un and any electrician can do the work.
The fourth annual convention of
the Okanagan district of the women's missionary society was held on
Thursday Nov. 16th, in the Methodist Church, Armstrong. Delegates were present from Penticton,
Summerland, Kelowna, Vernon

The desire has been expressed
by the management of the public
schools, that parents who contemplate sending children to the primary room for the first time after the
Christmas vacation, would intimate
their intention to the principal,
Mr. A. R. Lord, B. A., at an early
date. The object is to learn beforehand how many children may
be expected.and if extra accommodation is required, arrangements
can be made at once, and unnecessary delay avoided, it might be
pointed out that children are only
allowed to join the school during
the two weeks immediately following the vacation.
A new garage has been erected
on Ellis street by Mr. J. Bailey to

The Lake Shore Road Dispute
The controversy respecting the
new road which the government
is proposing to build between Kelowna and Okanagan Mission appears to be further away from set*
dement than ever.
Considerable public interest has
been aroused by the discussions
which have taken place. I his is
in itself a good thing, as the question is of the utmost importance to
the district, and not only to the
residents of the Mission, but as is
now being realized, in a still greater
measure to the people of Kelowna,
nnd one which should not be allowed to pass without a thorough
The people of the   Mission   are
asking   for   what   they   term       a
short   business   road,   which    by
avoiding difficult grades on the one
hand    and   abopting     a   straight
<iirect course on the other will enable them to haul their produce to
town at the most profitable rate to
themselves.    As practical   farmers
who have to look to   the   securing
of the   utmost  returns   from, their
labors, this   request  seems  to   be
perfectly reasonable  and   natural.
Their case, as represented by their
appointed   delegates   before    the
city council, and later,   before   the
Board of Trade, seems at first sight
to be quite plausible, and   entirelv
unanswerable.    They feel agrieved
that the Kelowna Board of  Trade
should intrude a  second   proposition   to   the   government,   which
might have the effect, at   such   a
time, of jeopardising their chances
of having the road of their choice.
They consider that the   action   of
the Board of Trade in   passing   a
resolution asking for a road   along
the lake shore was unbrotherly and
uncalled for.    They claim that they
have never opposed   the   scheme
of a  lake   shore   road, and    profess to be unable to see why   Kel
owna should raise any opposition
to their request for a short inland
This of course is all very well
so far as it goes, and so far as
Okanagan Mission is concerned.
A closer examination, however, of
this statement of the case, reveals
some contradictions, and not a few
serious disadvantages to Kelowna
and obstacles placed in the way of
the city's progress.
In the first place, the Mission s
unyielding advocacy of the inlano
road must be regarded as the
strongest opposition to the lake
shore road, as it is perfectly plain
to all parties that if the government
undertake to construct one road,
they will assuredly not make the
other, at least not for many years
to come. This consideration alone
makes it imperative that the people of Kelowna, in defence of their
own interests, should call a halt before tt is too late.
One of the greatest assets which
Kelowna possesses, is its unrivaled
stretch of lake frontage, which
wHi proper developement, will
one day make it one of the most
attractive and beautiful cities in
ihe interior of British Columbia.
At present access for the public to
the lake shore is restricted to a
very narrow stretch of beach in
the public park, and unless some
steps are taken this will remain as
the only place where the pleasures
which the lake affords may be enjoyed. It needs very little imagination to lealize what a magnificent
thing for the city and district would
be a road along the lake front. Its
scenic beauty, and its value as .
drawing card in the attractions of
of the district would compensate
for many disadvantages. Its value
to the Mission it?elf too, in encouraging tourists and others to visit
that district is something which
the residents there should not lose
sight of.
If it can be shown, as the advocates of the lake shore road claim
it can, that by utilizing a portion
of such a road, as short and direct
a route, and as free from stiff
grades, as the business road which
the Mission people desire can be
constructed, then Kelowna is justified as the larger community, in insisting that this shall be the course
Of the comparative engineering
difficulties, of course, it   is   impos
sible to speak until the report of
the government engineers on the
project, which it is understood- has
already been presented to the
Department of Public Works, is
made public. It might, however,
be pointed out that the question of
cost, though it will no doubt weigh
a good deal with the government,
is not of paramount importance.
When the road is built it will be
built for all time, and the spending
of a few thousands of dollars
now will seem a mere trifle if it is
realized in the future that a mistake
in the location ofthe road has been
made. To be deprived of a lake
shore drive, an advantage which is
enjoyed by most other towns on
the lake, would no doubt be a dis
aster which Kelowna would have
cause to bitterly regret. The hope
is entertained that some day the
city might be in a position to join
up to the government road with a
drive along that portion cf the lake
shore which lies within the city
limits, and thus complete a highway which would be a lasting
Perhaps the course adopted by
the Board of Trade of appointing
a strong committee which could
confer with the government in conjunction with a similar committee
from the opposing section, is the
wisest step which could have beert
taken. While there is no desire to
do injustice to any parties, it is
necessary that the Board, which
represents a large and growing
community, should safeguard its

Damage, estimated at $750, was
done on the ranch belonging to
Mr. W. Dob,ie, of Dawson, last
week end, by 30 head of cattle, the
property of Mr. John Casorso, of
Kelowna. Complaint was made ta
the poundkeeper, Mr. Jackson, that
the cattle were roaming through
the orchards, browsing on the
leaves, and smashing the trees.
Accompanied by Mr. Todd, he
went in search of the herd, Saturday, and located them after considerable trouble. They were
driven in arid pounded, until the
amount of damage was ascertained
after which the pound keeper reported to the council. Mr. Casorso
arrived from Kelowna Sunday, and
attempts at arbitration were made
during the week, but they failed.
An action for damages ttfll be. entered in' the county court,? and
heard early in January. Meantime,
the cattle have been released, and
were driven back to Kelowna last
Thursday.—Penlicion Herald. ■-■.-

Men Who Are Reckless In Handling High Explosives.
The Accident by Which the Inventor'a
Left Hand Was Blown Off—John Bender's Contempt For Dynamite—Mixing Fire and Nitroglycerin.
"It is practically impossible," writes
Hudsou Maxim in Adventure, "to
make the ordinary laboring: man appreciate tbe necessity of care in the
safe handling of explosives, and the
l.fe of the careful man Is always endangered by tbe actions of the careless one.
"After 1 bad sold the works at Maxim and had invented molorite 1 needed
a place In which to make Ihe material
and hired a brunch of the works there
for thai purpose. It was winter. My
wife had accompanied me as a precautionary measure. She was sitting
iu (he laboratory to keep warm, uear
a big barrel stove charged with -.numinous coal.
"Ou entering the laboratory for
something my wife asked me what

the stove. She said that she had a
suspicion it might be nitrogylyeerin,
and she informed me that one of my
men bad just been in stirring the Ore
and I hat the sparks flew out in all directions, some of iheru lighting in tho
buckets to be quenched on top of the
oily liquid.
•• 'Horrors!' I said. 'It is nitroglycerin !'
"I called the man who had placed it
tbere and told him to take it away.1 As
it was necessary to keep the material
from freezing he took It into the'boiler bouse near by. A little later on. going into tbe boiler bouse. 1 saw one of
tbe men stirring tlie fire while the other was standing with his coattnils outstretched in either hand, forming a
shield to keep, the sparks from flying.

n little absenfmindedness. a very
slight lack of exact caution, a seemingly insignili'cant inadvertence for a
moment, may cost one a limb or liis
life. The accident that cost. me my
left hand is a <-i.se in point.
"On the-day preceding that accident"
1 had had a gold cap put on a tooth,
in consequence the tooth ached
throughout the # night and kept me
awake a greater part of the time. In
the morning I rose, early and wont
down to my factory at Maxim, N. .1
In order to test the dryness of some
fulminate compound I took a little
piece of it. about tbe size of an English penny, broke off a small particle,
placed it on a stand outside the laboratory and^. lighting a match, touched
it off. .
"Owing to my loss of sleep the night
before my mind was not so alert as
usual, and I forgot to lay aside the
remaining piece of fulminate com

of fulminate compound entered my

the piece there. Willi tlie result that

"Once when .entering ray storage

several carloads ' of dynamite along
with 37.000 pounds of nitrogelatlu, I

"Not long afterward tbe Innkeeper
at Farrningdale called on me to buy
some dynamite and said he bad engaged Bender to blow the stumps out of
his meadow lot. I told him Bender
was courting death for himself and
everybody around when handling dy-

Bender to do the work.
"'Well,' said I, 'Ihe dynamite you
want is 16 cents a pound, but If John
Bender does not succeed In- blowing
himself up and killing himself with
the dynamite you can have It for nothing. Ou tbe other hand. If he docs

"A few days later there was some
hitch In Bender's exceptional luck. A
particularly refractory old stump hnd
resisted a couple of Bender's dynamic
attacks. The failure to dislodge tbe
stump Bender took as a personal affront because it reflected upon his skill
as a stump blaster.
"'Next time,' said he, 'something Is
going to happen.' He placed about
twenty pounds of dynamite under the
deep rooted veteran, touched It off, nnd
several things happened ln very quick
succession. Tho huge stump let go Its

One of the Most Thrilling Incidents of
the Bull Ring.
The famous Spanish toreador Reverte
3gured in one of the most thrilling
ncidents ever witnessed in the. arena.
It was at Bayonne. After disposing of
two bulls Reverte had twice plunged
ais svvofd into a third of great strength
uid ferocity, and- as 'the beast coot-Hied careering wildly the spectators be-
,'an to hiss Reverte for bungling.
Wounded to the very quick of bis
Drtde. the Spaniard shouted, "The bull
s slain"' aud. throwing aside bis
.word, sank on one kuee witb folded
irms in the middle of the ring. He
ivas right; but he had not allowed for
;be margin of accident. The wounded
jeast charged full upon him, but the
aiatador. splendid to the last, knelt
motionless as a statue, while the spec-
:ators held their breath in horrified
suspense. Reaching his. victim, the
anil literally bounded at bim, and as
ae sprang he sank hi'death, with bis
ast effort giving one fearful lunge ot
:he head that drove a horn into the
'high of the kneeling man and laid
Dare the bone from the knee to the

Origin of a Song.
Tbe grumbling of a negro groom led
to tbe composition of the immortal
"Old Folks at Home." While waiting
tor a change of horses at. a Kentucky
aostelry the composer. .Stephen Foster,
author of so many beloved darky melodies, beard a meianebbly negro murmur as be threw a set of harness to
the ground: "I's sick an' tired o' dis
life. I wisht 1 was back wit de ole
folks at home."
"Where may that be. Sam?" asked
"Ob," answered the darky, "way
lown on de,Suwannee river."
Tbe result was tbe song as we bave'
it today.

recovered himself quickly. •
"Pardou me," be smiled. "1 mistook

Woods Used For Laths
Within two years, the number of
the kinds of wood used for laths
has been doubled. This increase
is illustrative pi the extent to which
lath production is becoming an
adjunct to larger wood industries.
Small quantities of lumber of odd
sizes', slabs, and what would otherwise be mill waste are conserved
and used to advantage in this way.
The Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior has compiled statistics for 1910 showing
that twelve species of wood were
used in the production of the eight
hundred and fifty - two million
pieces of lath produced in 1910,
worth one million, nine hundred
and forty-three thousand dollars.
The first six species in importance
were spruce, white pine, cedar,
douglas fir, hemlock and balsam
which also are the woods used for
some time in the manufacture of
laths, The remaining six; jack
pine, red pine, yellow pine, poplar, basawood and larch are the
new species increasing in importance. ' Spruce and white pine
laths, the two most important
species, show a decrease in 191Q
from the year previous, but together form nearly seventy per cent, of
the annual output. Some million
and a half more pieces of cedar
were cut in 1910 than in 1909, and
the amount for this species of seventy million pieces made up one-
twelfth of the total.
Prices ranged from $1.25 for
yellow pine to $3.18 per thousand
for popular.

The seedless lemon, which botanical experts have laboured unsuccessfully to produce for many
years, has been discovered, it is
said, at San Bernadino, California.
Its discovery has greatly interested
fruit growers throughout the state,
and a revolution in the lemon
industry is expected to result. The
bud wood from which the trees
now bearing the seedless lemons
have been grown, came from a
sample provided by the department of agriculture, a number of
years ago, having been labelled
'" citron of commerce." Instead of
citrons, however, the trees are bearing seedless lemons.

It is understood that as a result
of representations which have been
made to the customs board during
the past few days by repteserfta-
tives of the Canadian lumbering
interests, instructions will be issued
without delay under which, in
future a twenty-five per cent, duty
will be collected bn all but rough
lumber, and lumber dressed on
one side only. It has been the
practice of American mills to dress
lumber on one side and one edge,
and then put the edge under a
roughening process, which made it
impossible to detect the dressing
process, with the result that it -was
admitted duty free. Under the
new regulation?, which are being
issued to customs collectors all
along the border, there will be a
closer supervision of lumber so
dressed and a duty will be collected on it.

expected it was the road they had
asked for. Mr. Hereron, however
had shown them a plan of a road
which was altogether different and
they had at once told him it would
be of no use, and a wasteof money
to make it. They had appealed
to the Hon. Price Ellison, who had
promised to have the matter looked
into. He had also promised that
engineers should be sent down lo
survey and report upon possible
roads between Kelowna and the
Mission. This had been done, and
they were willing to accept the
engineers' report. Whf n they were
in sight of getting the short road
for which they had asked, they felt
it hard that the Board of Trade
should interfere with a resolution
calling upon the government to
construct a lake shore road. From
first to last they had been unanimous in asking the government to
give them a short road, in spite of
the mistaken impression conveyed
by Mr. Hereron's remarks.
They were not there, however to
argue for or against any particular
road, but simply to ask the Board
to postpone forwarding their resolution until the government had
settled the question of the short
road, and not to complicate matters
by applying for a lake shore road.
The engineers'report he had heard
had been placed in the hands of
the government last Saturday, and
in all probability it would not be
long before the matter was decided.
Mr. Colin Smith spoke in support of Dr. Jones' remarks.
Mr. G. C. Rose then moved that
the resolution of the last meeting
be rescinded.
Mr. M. Hereron said he was
sorry the dispute over the road
had gone so far as it had done. As
a resident of the valley, and of
Kelowna he was working for the
good of the district. The road the
Mission people had asked for was
longer than the one he had .proposed to give them, and was a
much inferior road. What the
people of the district wanted was
a lake shore road, and it was coming to them to get a chance to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the
breezes from the lake. It was quite
true that if the other road was built
they would never g^t the lake shore
road. If this latter, project was
turned down now, they would
never get another chance. To turn
it down wouldbe one of the greatest mistakes ever made.
Mr. R. S. Hall asked what objection the Mission people had to
the lake shore road. Not one
good reason had been given tor'
opposing it. The lake frontage
was one of the greatest assets not
only for the town but for the surrounding country. At present the
public were practically shut out
from the lake except for the little
boulevard in the park. The lake shore
road would be of much greater benefit to
the people of the Mission, too, than the
other one. It was shorter and more level,
and combined with this the advantage of
scenic beauty. If the engineers reported
that the engineering difficulties were not
too great, why not have it built f
Mr. H. H. Millie also spoke enthusiastically in favor ot the lake shore road. It
would be infinitely more pleasant for
driving than the swamp road, which would
be rendered intolerable with mosquitoes.
The Mission people .were blind to their
own interests in opposing the lake shore
road. He was prepared to move as an
amendment that the resolution be allowed
to stand as passed.
Mr. A. H. Bell and other Mission speakers  insisted  that they' did not wish to op

Mr. R. A. Copeland said he would second the motion to rescind the resolution.
He was in favor of a lake shore road but
he thought Dr. Jones' request to postpone
action until the engineers' report had been
received a reasonable one.

matter laid over any longer. Stacks of

a swamp road, but not one word had been
said about a lake shore road.
