Review of the Industry in Province
for Yen 1905.
The B.C. Fruit Growers Association held its annual general meeting nt Victoria last week. Some
good papers were rend touching on
the rnpidly growing fruit industry
of the province.tind a lively interest
shown by the members in the very
proniiBing indications for the
future of horticulture in B. C.
From Secretary Brundrith's annual
'report we glean the following In-
: formation on the crop of the past
"Taking the fruit crops In their
order:   The   strawberry  crop  in
! some districts might be called a
light one.   There were two causes
! which led up to it, viz: an extreme?
|ly dry   summer   in   1!K)4,   which
; weakened the vitality of the plants,
Land a sharp frost which  heaved
I the ground,   breaking the roots.
In a few places where mulching
I had been resorted to the result was
nearly an average crop.
'  "Raspberries too, suffered from
the very hot dry weather, and (iO
per cent would be a fair estimate
of this crop.
"The early cherries on the lower
Fraser suffered as usual from ex-
cess of moisture. Elsewhere in
the province they were nn average
crop, and satisfactory prices were
obtained: the demand being greatly in excess of the supply.
"Plums nnd pruneB were a goal
average crop, and with th.c exception of the lower Fraser, where the
brown rot prevails, were remunerative...
"' Peaches where grown commercially, were good considering the
age of tho trees, and were profitably disposed of. The pear crop
was about 20 per cent below the
average, and the apple crop was
not ti full crop.
"As an idea of the way the work
of the secretary is increasing, I
may mention that last year 1 re-
j ceived and answered li-17 letters.
"To give you some idea of the
'growth of the industry in tho pro-
| vince, I may state that ii: 1902 the
[ Dominion Express Company car-
' rieil 51.205 packages of fruit, weighing 074,706 lbs, while in 1905 it car-
rind 96,988 packages of fruit weigh-
imi 2,351,416' His. an increase in
i three years or.' 55,783 packages of
fruit, weighing 1,37(1,707 lbs.

to be gained by such a course are
obvious. In this way a more remunerative market for the producers will follow as an inevitable
result, while not the least profit
gained will be in the united and
friendly relationship that will exist
between the various towns of the
valley. The whole of the Okanagan, as has been well said, is goal,
some parts of it only being more
particularly adapted to the production'of certain products, and
there is no reason for the existence
of anything but a wholesome and
friendly rivalry between the various districts, and the policy of
backbiting and endeavoring to
undermine another section should
be forcibly discouraged by every
district of the valley. The success

an organization there was present
The details of the organisation
were left in the hands of a committee to report at a future meeting. A subscription for stock was
liberally signed, arid the success of
the venture is assured.
The present continued wnrm
weather is certainly enjoyable,
though from many points of view
colder weather during this month
would have been preferred. There
are yet in this immediate district
in the neighborhood of a million
feet more logs that in the event of
prolonged sleighing would have
been delivered to the Armstrong
Saw Mill. This alone would signify the distribution throughout
the district of some 94,000, a large
amount of which will now be delayed until next winter. While it
may be confidently expected that
3ome cold weather will yet be experienced, it is doubtful if any
more snow sufficient for sleighing,
will be had.

The question of next summer's
ice supply is beginning to alarm
some of the townspeople. Owing
to the mildness of the winter Otter
lake is so far unable to supply the
community with its usual good
crop of ice. Some of those who are
fearful lest we have no more cold
weather have hod a small quantity
hanled from Steele's lake, near
Hull Car, and while the quality
is only fair, the cost of getting it
from there is considerable.

In the settlement of all new countries, perhaps there is nothing that
retards their growth more than the
prevailing idea of the people of the
older   and   more   thickly   settled
communities, that the new country
eon offer little or nothing by way
of social inducements lo those who
might otherwise wish to make it
thi-ir'hoiiie. More particularly is
this the case of British Columbia
when its advantages are sought to
be presented to the people of the
eastern provinces of the Dominion. Even in the comparatively
near by province of (lntario, it is
indeed difficult to persuade one
person in a hundred 'hat the province of B, I'., being so far removed from the great centers of civilization, can be anything but what
might naturally be expected of "
mining country.
And yet a visit to the "wild and
woolly west" would, we venture to
say in every case, not only dispel
any illusion of the kind that may
have existed, but produce ii feeling

as those that prevail in the east.
Especially is this true of the Okanagan Valley, and particularly of
the large fanning and fruit growing district in the immediate
vicinity of Armstrong, which latter
town, indeed, might well be taken
as an example of how a small town
in a rural district of the west may
have more to offer by way of social
advantages than places of its own
sine or even much larger in th
east. Situated, as it is, in one of
the most pleasttnt ilistricts of the
Okanagan, surrounded by a net
work of roads affording drives
through {scenery the beauty of
which is unequalled by anything
in the east, in close proximity to
the finest deer runs and trout
streams and lakes of the valley,
and with an unexcelled climate it
is nt once the paradise of the
hunter and the resort par excellence
of the tourist.
Four denominations have church
edifices in the town, the Anglican,
Methobist, Presbyterian, and
Seventh Day Adventist, The
public school with three teachers
and a high school dispense adequate learning ito the young people of the town, whilst every section of the district has its miscellaneous or rural school for the
children of that particular section.
The curriculum of B, 0, schools is
equal to that of any province in
the Dominion afoot that is not
generally admitted by the people
of the eastern provinces, but true
nevertheless, and the fact that
pupils of Armstrong and its district scIukiIb have stood high In examinations, speaks well for the
proficiency of the teachers in
Another feature of uncial life in
the Spulluuichccii iii the large
number of secret nntl benevolent
associations. The man who is
seeking a home, and is being
guided in his selection by Unsocial advantages offered, numbers
among others the privileges of the
lodge room, In this respect Armstrong may well be culled the home
of the "jitter". Almost every
secret association has its devotees
here. The mule residents of the
town are almost without exception
members of some or all of the
orders, and with few exceptions
the farmers throughout the large
district are members of one or
more. No Mason ever trod a
