FRASER VALLEY
ORGANIZATION
Will Have Co-operative Growers' Organization as in
Okanagan
Victoria—Mr. R. M. Winslow, provincial horticulturist, returned to the
city on Tuesday night from hia visit
to the Mainland on departmental
business. His tour included Vancou-
I ver, New Westminster, Mission, Sal-
, man Arm, Nakusp, Nelson, Creston,
Grand Forks and  Spokane,
While it MiSBllon Mr. Winslow ad-
dreBsed a meeting of the fruit and
vegetable growers of the district cull-
i il for the purpose of organizing under part 2 of the Agricultural Association Act to form a permanent cooperative marketing association. This
meeting was well attended and it was
decided to form an association under
the name of the Fraser Valley Fruit
Growers Limited.
The growers of the Mission district
shipped this yenr some eighteen carloads of rhubarb and eleven carloads
of raspberries, besides even larger
amounts of fruit and vegetables which
were shipped hy express and freight.
Express shipmeyits alone aggregated
G40 tons this year, shipped in t">4 carloads. It will be readily seen thut
permfa'nent organization was very
necessary to the district in order to
handle the increasing shipments successfully, and also to provide facilities for a pulping or jam factory as
an additional outlet.
Mr. Winslow inspected a number of
the government demonstration orchards in the different districts which
he visited, and also thc blight-control
work hein'j carried ont in Grand
Forks and the Kootenay country. He
also addressed meetings of the Farmers' Institutes in Grand Forks and
Creston, und consulted with the assistant horticulturist at Salmon Arm
Mr. M. S. Middleton, in regard to
their work, Mr. Winslow took part in
tbe judging and conference at the
Spokane apple show, where British
Columbia entries were very successful.

New rates of pay for British army
officers, showing Increases of from
ten to twenty-five per cent., are announced in an army order. The new
daily rate for a captain Is ralBcd
from U to S3.58 and for a lieutenant
from 12 to 62.50. These Increases also are augmented by various special
allowances.
litre run from 47 cents up to 70 cents
This means 'that the growers in the
union at Penticton get from four to
22 cents per box for their apples.
These same apples cost the public at
the coast, or on the prairie, anywhere from on dollar up to twice
that amount.
Strongly Against it.
The condemnation of the Central
agency management was heartfelt
and sincere, and it was loud, too. Mr.
RobertBon, who gets $7,.">00 per year
for managing the selling end of the
business for the United Growers
would have had an interesting time
ol it had he been present.
Modern Babylon in
lime of War
The explaining and persuasive powers of Manager R. Robertson of the
Central Selling agency will be taxed
to their limit to meet the angry objections which Penticton fruit growers have to his work during the past
Beasan, says the Penticton Herald.
The agency, which is the or.juniza-
tion formed by the Okanagan United
Growers for the purpose of disposing
of itB fruit and produce, wasjstrong-
ly indicted at a fruit growers' meeting held at Penticton on
Monday        afternoon, and        the
general opinion appeared to
be that Manager Robertson and his
high-priced staff at Vernon had failed lamentably.
Thc members of the local union,
which is affiliated with the United
Growers, passed a resolution asking
for governmental investigation ol the
Central Agency. It also/adopted another resolution proposing a reconstruction of the Central Agency, in
order either to eliminate the expensive management, or to do away with
selling fruit through the brokera, as
is done at the present time. These
two resolutions will be placed before
a meeting of the directors of the
various local unions at Vernon today. On Tuesday a committee meet
infc' of the central directors wns held
in Kelowna, and yesterday it was followed by an executive session at Vernon.
Want of Confidence Motion.
A third resolution which thc local
union directors were empowered to
1 ring up at today's meeting at Vernon .I tbey so desired, was to the effect that tbe Penticton union declare
its entire want of confidence in the
management of the Central Selling
agency.
There was no apparent feeling at
the local meeting against the continued existence of local unions, thc
united growers and a central selling
organization, but the whole objection
to present conditions appeared to lie
in thc fact that although the Central
agency costs approximately 1*10,000
per year ln BalarlcB, etc., it does
nothing more than sell to the brokers, a deal which any ordinary clerk
might enrry through just as well. Thc
brokers ln turn Belt to tho wholesalers and -ttif. latter to the retailers.
Then thc fruit gets to the consuming
public. In the mennttmc It tins dropped of a lot of "pickings, ' until
when the returns get back to the
grower he finds nothing but bones.
For example, orchardlsts who have
sold .privately to consumers obtained
M.Vi per box for applM. The price
quoted to the Central agency by bro-
War shows     what    is     in a people.
Critics    of    the    French   have   called
I
Paris "the  modern Babylon".     They
would bc surprised  if they could   see
Paris now.
It is   a     French    provincial town,
vastly larger than the others,     more
silent, more tranquil.    In the streets
peaceful pedestrians,   of  earnest, faces,
go about their affairs. There iB no insolent luxury.     You  will not see     a
single   one    of     those brilliant euui-1
pages which in certain     other     con-!
tinental capitals of late have adver- j
tiscd thc money burning of financiers •
speculators     and     army    furnishers. !
Everybody,  rich or poor, takes     the '
subway or tram car.
One would seek  in vain (or flashing
show windows to tempt one with dia- I
monds, pearls,     laces,     embroideries ]
ami vain gewgaws.  Even the     shops I
have adopted  the simple life,  offering
goods of solid value, clothes,    boots,
blankets,      foodstuffs,    ah  yes,  food,
food, food, in what profusion!
Cafes Close at 8
The Paris  population     has become
so  sober  that     they close the    cafes
every night at - o'clock and the     restaurants  at  9.30,  The  most  famous
restaurants  are  simplicity  itself, and
the plain thi-'^s which  they serve are
just like those offered in the cheaper
restaurants,  only slightly  dearer.  At
the cafe have a care    not to demand
an    absinthe    you    would   scandalize
them, and the waiter would reply, reproachful, hurt'     "We do not     have
that merchandise."'The extreme limit
of debauch is a burnt wine or quinine  *
tonic.
If former critics could see Babylon !
tbey would find neither gambling
club nor betting agency, nor hear the
invitation "Want a guide sir? Paris
by night, sir?" round the great
hotels. The racetracks are grazing
grounds for the cattle of a thousand
hills. The theatres and music halls
are shut. Actresses and ballet girls
are Red Cross nurses. But the moving picturea thrill hearts with scanes
of heroism, charity piety.—New York

snys, It takes a brave man in Germany to use these words, but it is
absolutely necessary that they shall
lie used, and that the truth may lie
broken gently to the. German people
that for two months tbeir .nrmies
have not advanced n foot .nearer
Paris, that they nre in General
Smith-Dorrien's words "up against a
brick wall." The hint thrown out hy
von Illume is likely to be followed
by a "certain liveliness" on the part
of the professors. They will begin to
speak of the valor of the German
armies, to lay emphasis upon not
their successes, but their efforts, and
hiially tn tell the people that the
German armies have done more than
the armies of any other country ever
did, lint that even they c.uriot pcr-
form the Impossible. Then will follow unofficial, and Bnally official,
overtures tor peace.

DIFFICULT TO
INVADE EGYPT
Desert of Sinai Great Obstacle
—Eastern Frontier Defended by Land and Water
The Sinai peninsula iis a triangulur
table land, measuring 2(H) miles from
its Mediterranean base to its Red Sea
apex at Ran Mohammed, and 150
miles across from Sue'/, to Akabah. li
rises to 7, ISO'feet above the sea a1
Mount Siuui and to 8,530 feet at
Jebel Um Sharaar, gradually tailing
northward across the Desert of the'
Wandering, and draining towards the
Mediterranean by the great deprcs
sum of the Wady cl  Arish.
Two main caravan routes lea:
across the peninsula'to Egypt from
Turkish territory, the first from
Hafah by El Arisli to Bl Kantara,
113 miles; the second by Altahi'ii
through Nakhl to Suez, l."0 miles.
From       Hafah     to Bl     Arish  the
ground  is  sandy,  and water is (ound
only at Sheikh el Zauleh, twenty-two
ni'ilcs (rom El Arish. This latter town
is situated among palm groves.a mile
and three-quarters     from the beach,
and    it      possesses     numerous wells.
From  El  Arish to Bir el Maza     the
distance is 32 miles   and the     going
unusually  souud. At "El Maza there is
only one well, :S5 feet deep, and 0 feet
of water.  From Bir el Maza the distance is 31 miles     over soft     sandy
desert to Bir el 'Abe, where there is a
considerable    supply  o(  water     (rom
wells. Katich is 17 miles further west
and  here there is a large  well with G
feet of water at a depth     of 20 feet,
while a good supply of drinkable water can  be  found  by digging     at     a
depth  of 10 feet to 20 feet below the
surface.   From  Katich  to El   Kantara
33 miles,  the road traverses first     a
marshy plain,  then a long reach     of
holdiug sand dunes, and     finally     IG
miles of good hard     desert.  El Kantara  is on the east bank of the  Suez
Canal,  and   is   supplied    by     water
from the fresh water canal by means
of a pipe which passes under the Suez
Canal.     The worst part of this route
is that between El Arish and Bir   el
Abd, 6^! miles, with a single well half
way.
The Sirbonian Bog.
The section of   the    Mediterranean
coast  which  flanks the  road  from  El
Arish  to El Kantara  is low and  dangerous,  offering few facilities     for   a
disembarkation.   At the head   of the
Bay of Pelusium, east of the     Suez
Canal, the live-fathom line is    J miles
fr.mi  the  beach.  Sandbanks are num-
r iU8,  the shorv- is almost dead    flat,
and the onlj   remarkable feature that
ran  be distinguished from seaward at
• nice of over three miles is   the
sandhill   it      Ras     Kasrun,     -70 (eet
bigh, and rather more than half-way
tween     the     Suez Canal     and  01
Arish.
-e.im.-e fifty miles, with R.is Kas-
- a centre, a long strip   if reef-
;«arates an interior lagoon
Lak«  Sirbon,   from      the sea.     This
is from     two     to sis     miles

Vilihiyeh; all these alternatives ofler
advantages. Of all obstacles which
may cover the frontiers of empires, n
ilesert like this is incontestahly the
ireatest. Mountains like the Alps
take second rank, and rivers the
i bird. If there is so much difficulty In
carrying the (ood o( an army that
complete success is rarely obtained,
;his difficulty becomes twenty times
greater when it is necessary to carry
rater, forage, and fuel, three things
which are weighty, difficult to curry,
and usually found by armies upon
ihe ground they occupy.
Akaba and the Southern Road.
Akaba, the Turkish position at the
southern end of the Egyptian frontier, is situated amongst palm groves facing west, and has a very pleasant appearance after the barren rock
country of Sinai. The village consists
of a few mud huts built in Arab
fashion, extremely dirty, and without
,.ny prominent house belonging to the
Sheikh, such as is usually seen in
Egyptian ezbehs; the population is
composed of Bedoins who do nothing
all day, but there is no attempt at
any bazaar or shops. The fort looks
on to the sea and is very powerfully
built with thick walls fifty feet high.
It. was constructed in the sixteenth
century to protect the pilgrim route
to Mecca, being tbe meeting point of
the roads from Palestine, El Arisli,
and Suez.
The water supply is wonderful, (or
within a few feet of the sea one can
scratch a hole six inches deep and obtain good fresh water; these holes are
dug daily for about a mile along the
sea front and are used by camels and
goats coming in from pasturage.
The well of Tabah, which is in
Egypt, is some seven miles from
Akaba, and consists of u few date
palms, but with no sign of habitation, lt lies on the road from En
Nueibia, the Egyptian station 40
miles south and must be passed by
anyone wishing to proceed to Akaba
or to che pass leading up to the Tih
plateau. The well itself is brackiBh,
owing to mjglect and is never even
used by the fisherman. But it
is important as being the only water
supply between En Nueibia and
Akaba.
The Pilgrim Route.
The puss leading up from Akaba to
the Tih plateau is very steep and
difficult for a heavily-loaded camel;
the road itself hus beeu well made
and is in fairly good preservation,
but the ascent of 2,mil feet takes at
least four hours. As soon bb the top
is reached the broad track of the
pilgrim road is seen extending westward almost dead level and good going to within "JO miles of Suez. The
ground is hard, with scarcely any
surface sand, so that it would be
possible to drive a motor-car Irom
one end to the other with only (ew
interruptions where the Wady cl 'Arish
crosses thc road near Nakhl. The plateau is bounded on each side by a
parallel line of low hills about six
miles apart as far as Nakhl, and then
becomes more open, stretching gradually towards the sea on the north.
The main caravan route runs due
West to Nakhl without touching any-
well, but Bir-et-Themed only lies a
few In mrs off the track and is generally reached alter two days' march
from Akaba; this well is hard to
find, as the track is much obliterated
and the opening stands by itself without .my surrounding vegetation to
indicate its presence. It is well built
and was probably not used by the
pilgrims as the supply is not sufficient for a in- caravan; in summer the
well is dry.

THE tone of the Violin is exceptionally difficult to reproduce.
Its richness and lusoiousness
depend on over-tones, so soft, so
delicate, so fleeting, that the ordinary
"talking machine" can neither!record
nor reproduce them.
But Mr. Edison—the wi*ard—the
inventor of the Phonograph, the wonder
of   the   musical   world—accomplished

(THE INSTRUMENT WITH THE DIAMOND POINT)
So perfect are the Fdison methods
of Recording—so perfect are Fdison
instruments and records (which you
may have in your own home at small
cost) that the violin records become
the violin of Ole Hull and Joachim.
All the richness (ullness, softness—all
thc throbbing, lieart-appeuling tenderness—all the luscious tones and overtones—float from this amazing instrument just ns the great srtists achieve
them on their priceless violins.
The new Edison Phonograph has the

WORLD NEWS TERSELY TOLD
Reginald McKenna, Home Secretary, stated in tbe house of commons
last Friday that 130,000 cases of
suspicious aliens bad been investigated by tbe police. Six thousand
bouses bad been ransacked with the
result that 312 persons had been interned. Witb regard to the suggei-i
that all Germans and Austrians in
this country should be interned, Mr.
McKenna said that not all the English in Austria and Germany had e)ieen
Interned and that if all tbe alien enemies in the L'nited Kingdom should
be locked up a useless nnd gross injustice would be done.
The Ottawa 'Evening Journal" is
iesponsi|de for the statement that the
government is preparing a drastic
naval programme which it will submit to parliament at the coming session. The Journal reads: "What the
proposals are it is impossible to ascertain at present and when Hon. J.
ll. Hazen, Minister rmj tbe Nuval Service, was asked if there was anything
in the reports that were being circulated, he replied that he wag not
yet prepared to make any statement
on the subject. "Those who know Mr.
I l.i/."ii, however, are aware that he
has given the most erne«t study to
the  qtlMtiOa   and   that undoubtedly he
will propound a polio; that wM both
bc in tbe Interests ol Canada and the

Forty armored motor cars of a
standard of efficiency said to be se-
i-eeinl  tn none ln the world,  were   ,.r-
dercd last week by the Domin'ion government. This order is made up of
_'" cars comprised in tbe offer of J.C.
Eaton, to ei|iip a motor machine gun
battery and in addition twenty enrs
to be paid for bv tbc government.
The gun itself is mounted on a re
lil- turret which is protected by
l ■ 1 armor and is capable of withstanding rille tire at li'O yards. Inside the turret there is space for five
men—tbe driver of the car, operator
of the gun and three riflemen. In addition an extra gun is stored in thc
car and can he quickly mounted on
a tripod for field work. The f/un to be
used will probably bc a quick firing
type, with a capacity of 60 shots a
minute.
According to tbe Paris Eclair, a
Cbenoble jewler, Anthoy Jacques,
has invented an arrow bomb for destroying Zeppelins which is quite
harmless when it strikes a bard surface, even with great force, although
it can be set as a percussion bomb if
ilesired. Experiments made at Grenoble, before ., party of investigators, including M. Morad, the local
tire chief, showed that when the ar
row-bomb struck a comparatively
flimsy fabric, like the envelope of a
dirigible, It promptly exploded, but
when thrown violently against a
steel plate it fell harmlessly to the
groimd. The ln\cntor says these
: bombs could bc cheaply and rnpidlv
'fabricated, nnd suggests that they
might be thrown from aeroplanes. He
i places his Invention afflji. disposal
Ol the war department.
Victoria—Hayter Heed,  general superintendent of the C.P.R. hotel   system, spent yesterday in the     city a \
guest at the Empress. Mr. Reed is on :
one of his periodical trips of inspec-
tion throughout the west.
He anticipates a great volume     of
travel to -JVcstern Canada after     thc
•war has  closed, and looks for the  advent  of the invading tide of  tourists
next  spring,  concnrn ntly  with      tbc
opening  of  the  Panama   Pacific      ex- j
position  at  San   Fi an Cisco.  He  fully |
concurs in the views recently express- '
ed by   shrewd   observers   that   for a !
considerable  period  after thc close of
I in- war the great  army of tourists in
the Unlt-Jd States, who were wont to
make trips to Europe, will turn their
attention  to Western  America.
Mr. Heed, while sanguine of steadily improving conditions in Canada,
is sure that the area of land specula-
lion has passed away, not to be revived for a good many years. In hi
opinion, tbis will result in gren
benefit to the country in thc long
run, nnd the new and better siotua-
tion will rapidly adjust ItstHf to the
l.alfits and customs ol the people
Without undue  disturbance.
