Meeting of Farmers Endorse League
Movement and of Proposal to
Organzie Locally.
At a meeting attended 'by several
of the representative farmers of the
Delta on Tuesday night in the municipal hall, a resolution wag p^.tEed
with few dissenting voices ippn.-ing
,,: the co-operative marketing movement which the Fraser Vall.y De-
velopmont League Is promoting aud
laboring  the  organization     ol     .he
:ui.)i_ and especially the vegetable
growers of Delta into u local at-so-
uuiion to promote the bettor s.-ad-
lug and more profitable marketing
u; farm produce.
The meeting, called at tho instance
oi the  Board  ot  Trade,     was    addressed   by   Markets     Commissioner
Abbott  and   President  Marmont,  of
llie league.     Mr.  Abbott went into
the various phases of the co-operative  movement  at  length  aud  illustrated how such a union of the fruit,
vegetable und  other  tood stuff pro-
ducers, would obtain lor the farmer
a suitable profit on  his goods, enlarge'the markets for his produce,
secure a regular supply for the dealers or consumers  and  improve  the
standard   of   the  goods  packed.      A |
co-operative  society differed  from a ]
joint   stock   company   iu   that  uhe
profits were earned according as the
subscriber  uses  the  association   lor
the common  benefit.     Such  an  as- I
soclation would also act as a credit j
organization to enable the producer
to get through the season.    It would '
also protect him against    the    dis-
honest commission man.
Mr. Abbott also instanced how a
local co-operative selling agency,
working through a central market-
Ing agency could control distribution,
; revent the glutting of the local
narkets,   provide   the   organization
r extending the market to other
fields and keep out foreign produce i
ensuring steady and regular local
supply.     There were potato growers I
��� ho always  thought the price  was i
.olng up.     These held on to their
produce and ln consequence the city
markets were not kept supplied with |
Valley produce,   which  allowed  the
entry of foreign stuff.     There was |
uot one-tenth the production of food
stuffs In the valley that there ought
to be, owing to the lack of proper j
distribution and marketing agencies. '
'llie dealers would rather buy local
stuff  than   foreign   but   could   not j
always be assured of a regular local :
Bupply, . i ��*_ A ���        "*  '
H�� farther explained how the aim !
was to organize the Valley Into local
Producers' associations these to look j
after the producing and market supply ends; then organize a central
elllng agency to look after the sell-
' % end. There was no reason that
a  with   fruit   their  products  should
t he sold before put on the mar-
' >'t. Once organized they cnulil.
1 nilnnle  the  market  and  keep  out
Ineee who cut down the prices.
In cases of over production the
���   jural   agency   could   look   for   new
irkets.      The  prairies needed  sup-

A windstorm gathered early on
Sunday afternoon aud was quite a
change from the hot weather of last
week. Toward evening the gale had
gathered quite a velocity of speed,
and blew all during the night.
Farmers report that hay which had
been stacked was blown around the
fields and had to be raked and
stacked again; the demand "or men

of its violence.
The fishermen had a very rough

boats and nets, doing a good bit of
harm and causing some accidents.

as it is well matured. Home of the

Ladner scored their sixth straight
win against outside teams on Friday evening when the fast Leckle
aggregation of the Vancouver Wholesale League was beaten by a 6 to 4
score. Ladner came from behind In
the fourth inning, overcoming a two
run lead and by hard bitting scored
enough runs to win the game. Dutch
and Hastings both hit safe, Webster
was given a walk. With the bases
lull Thurston hit to left field scoring
Dutch and Hastings. H. Wilson's
three bagger scored Wwbstor and R.
Wilson and a moment later H. Wilson came In on a passed ball.
A larger crowd than usual witnessed the game and cheered our
gifted athletes.
Much regret was expressed over
the inability of the Malktn team
to fill their date with Ladner on
Monday last.     Another date will he

Meantime Council Pledges Its Moral
Support to Work of Market
GIFFORD, July 21.���Matsqui
council will give their immediate
moral support to the work of the
Market Commissioner for the Fraser
Valley Development League, and if
the finances permit may become a
subscriber to the League. This was
the answer of the Council to Market
Commissioner Abbott, who on Saturday in company with the secretary
addressed the Councillors on the
work of the League in promoting the
marketing of valley produce. Reeve
Merryfieid said he believed that the
League was now working on right
lines, and favored holding a series
of meetings throughout the municipality. Councillor Melander thought
it would be a good movement to stir
up the producers to the value of cooperation. Mr. Abbott stated that
he was willing to address local meetings and these will be arranged for
at the centres suggested by the
Reeve, as Matsqui, Peardonville, Abbotsford and Mt. Lehman. Announcement of a meeting at one of these
places next week will be announced
The Market Commissioner in explaining the lines upon which he is
working pointed out the need of the
farmers for an organization to assist them in marketing their produce. The small producer especially had no means to get his produce
marketed without loss of time and
he also lacked knowledge of the
course of prices. It would be his
work to investigate the conditions of
local production and marketing and

Growth Is Earlier Than in Former
Years nnl tlic Vines Are
SARDIS, July 11���The hop crop
this year is the best since the industry was started here. The growth
on both the B. C. Hop Company and
the Hulbert ranches got an Unusually early start and little or no trouble
was had with the flee and midge,
which other years had to be fought
daily. The last two years the growers have shipped in many car loads
ol barnyard manure from Vancouver
and the building up of the land under crop with (his fertilizer has re-
sulted to the Immense benefit of the
growers. The growth iu consequence I Porting it
is earlier and the vines are strong I ���
local organizations, working in con
nection with a central selling agency
the Fraser valley producers of food
stuffs could hold the coast markets
as well as the prairies. He illustrated his remarks by referring to his
present activities in securing for the
fruit men a better price in the city
markets and his endeavor to prevent
glutting there. He also instanced
where there was a demand for carload lots of new potatoes to supply
the prairie demand but no means to
get in touch with potato growers and
secure a supply on short notice. Yet
there was a wide market for vegetables, Prince Rupert alone last year
importing from American sources
some 4 00,000 pounds of vegetables.
Why should not Matsqui get a share
of this trade? Here was where local
associations working under one central organization would provide the
market with regular supplies, which
is necessary to its control. He found
the commission men anxious to secure valley produce and would buy
readily if regular valley shipments
were assured.
The League was also organizing a
market news agency, reports already
having been sent out. The aim was
to enable the farmer to know when
and where to sell.
From a personal interview with
many of the producers of the Matsqui district, Mr. Abbott is confident
that they appreciate the co-operative marketing movement which tho
League is promoting and that the
ratepayers will endorse any action
the council  may  take towards sup-
aiid healthy and well able to withstand the ravages of the insect pests.
Of . urse spraying with chemicals
is carried on as much as ever to combat the Insecl and fungus growths.
Harvesting of the hops will begin
about the middle of August and will

in tho peace negotiations. Tho member of parliament and  the officials
followed  the dictates of the administration   at   Ottawa   in   securing   a
settlement   without  a  resort  to  extreme measures.
Wanted Casil for Fares.
The  first   demand   of  the  Hindus
was for the government to pay the
fares of the passengers back to Calcutta,   advancing   the     amounts     in
cash.     This was refused, as it is definitely known  that    Gurdit    Singh,
the   former   charterer,   collected   return  fares  from  each  passenger before leaving Hong Kong.     Then the
Hindus   asked   for   the   payment   of
two months' charter money, $14,000,
to pay the cost of getting the Komagata  Maru  back  to Calcutta.     This
also   was  refused   and   the   point  of
deadlock  all   day  was  the  Insistent
demand   of  the   Hindus   for  an   arrangement which would cover transportation to Calcutta.
Charterers  Wanted Coinpeii.sat.ioii.
The local  Hindus,  who  took over
(the charter of the ship from Clurdit
Singh, also demanded compensation,
alleging  that owing to the delays in
the examinutiuus ol the immigrants,
tbey were put to a large and unnecessary expense 'by the vessel -being
detained in the harbor,     While the
officials  refused   to  admit  that  the
government   was   responsible  in  any
way they agreed  to Investigate the
claims of local Hindus who may have
innocently lost money in the charter,
the investigation to be made by an
impartial   tribunal   to   be  appointed
by Sir H. L, Borden.
Will Provision Ship.
When this undertaking was given
the local Hindu charterers consulted
With the Hindus on the ship, placing
before  them  the  ultimatum  of the
government that the vessel would be
provisioned for the voyage, across the !
Pacific  ami   medical  stores  provided
b)   the   Immigration   authorities  as i
promised several days ago if the. pas-
eehgers would not interfere with the
management of the ship.     Otherwise
it was .stated that negotiations would
cease, the vessel taken control of by I
the naval and  militia forces and the
Hindus sent back In irons to Asia.

This result may im described as a
crintnph  of patience for at  many  nm-

Hut  reason  prevailed over passion
ami at 7 o'clock in the evening when
the citizens had begun to think that
tbe authorities had simply been wast-
Ing Mi-ir time in  negotiating when
'.hey  should  have been  fighting,  the
announcement   was   made   that   the
Hindus  had   agreed   to  the  govern-
ment's terms.     Quite a large part ln
securing this result  was played  by
shore committee ol the Hindus,
who  visited  their  fellow-countrymen
and sought to Induce them to avoid
inevitable defeat If a miniature, naval
engagement should be provoked.

held out  that every conceivable al-

permitted the second conference be-
| tween  the committee on  shore and
'the ieaders on the vessel during the
afternoon and later waited patiently
lor them to place their amended proposals  in   writing and  submit tbem
to  Iheir counsel.     Final word  was-
expected from this consultation at 5
o'clock but the time dragged on and
it   was  after   7   o'clock  before  word
was received tbat they had accepted
the terms of the immigration department in resard to deportation with
the  proviso that  the  lenders on  tin-
