tions Yesterday's sessions were a
continuation of personalities being
flung across the hall together with
mudslinglng tactics which, while appealing to some, were a source of disappointment and apparently disgusting to a greater section of the delegates who have no wish to enter nor
allow personalities.
Practically Vote of Censure.
Chief of all was lhe vote, of censure
which    was    practically    hurled    or
rather adopted against the Vancouve
Trades and Labor council for its con
nection   and  actions  in  respect  to  a
certain   mass  meeting  called   by   the ���
executive of the federation to protest
against  th    military  being  stationed j
in   the   Vancouver   island   strike   district.
President Severtz,    in    liis    repi rl
which  was read on  the opening day,!
criticized the action of certain mem-
bers of the Vancouver Trades and La-
bor council for alleged refusal to ro-��
operate in the mass meeting project
The officers' reports committee, while
deploring the  inclusion  of  personali-'
ties in the president's report, moved
that same be adopted.   It was adopted
despite the Btrenuons defence put up
by   Vancouver delegates, so  that the
feeling of the Terminal City Trades
council towards the executive of the
federation which practically means the
whole   federation,   is  apparently,  and
was shown so yesterday as not of the

President Farrington of the United
.Mine Workers during the troubles in
the Nanaimo district. The controversy
commenced shortly after 10 o'clock
and continued until a few minutes

Youth Gives Himself Up to New York
Police and Tells of Crime Committed  Last  August.
Latest advices from Washington, Uncle Sam's capital,
have it that President Woodrow Wilson is wrinkling his
forehead at the repudiation of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty
relative to Panama canal tolls, which was one of the last
acts of the Taft administration. Wilson may not understand presidenting in the same way as his predecessors,
hut he has a wonderfully clear idea of right and wrong
and an equally wonderful strength of will to back up what
he believes comes under the head of the former. Hence
it may be assumed that since he has frowned at the proposal to disregard the agreement with Great Britain with
respect to tolls through the canal and give preference to
American bottoms, there will be something stirring in the
near future around the halls of congress on this subject.
The principle of exemptions to American coastwise
vessels is held by Great Britain and by a great many United States authorities as well to be a direct violation of the
terms of the Hay-Pauncefote treaty, which provided that
the canal should be free and open to the vessels of commerce and war of all nations on terms of entire equality
with the charges of traffic just and equitable.
President Wilson, as has been proved since he took up
his abode in the Wihte House, decided questions that came
up to him on the plain issues of right and wrong when it
is at all possible to boil them down to that analysis. He
has further proved since his tenure of office commenced
that his decision invariably goes to the side which he believes to be right; while he has demonstrated to the complete satisfaction of everybody concerned that when he
has once decided a thing is right his mind stays made up
and congress and senate have to make up their administrative minds accordingly.
In view of these facts, it would appear that Great
Britain could not do better than await the president's
judgment on the question of Panama canal tolls before
taking any further action or making any further representations in the matter beyond placing the foreign side
of the case clearly before the head of the American nation. From a Canadian standpoint, the British contention
appears to be nothing but just and in strict accord with the
letter and spirit of the treaty supposedly signed in good
faith by the United States and Great Britain. The repudiation of that agreement by the United States through

The Modern View.
Three Birthdays a Year.
There Is apparently plenty of fun for
the child In Sweden lu tbe matter of
birthdays, but the parent can hardly
be expected to feel the same, for the
children there do not confine themselves
to oue birthday, but tbey must have
three. Of course the Urst one Is the
real birthday, nnd the other two are
those wlu.se names the Swedish boy
or girl bears. For every day lu the
year of the Swedish calendar has Its
own separate name, besides the weekly names which other nations have.
Sometimes If the parent gives the child
n second name or a llrst oue that cannot he found lu the calendar, the child
loses out on one birthday. And considerable protest must follow, too, when
the child becomes old enough to realize what be is missing, in the German
illleudur every day has a name also,
but the observance of these days Is
not at all common iu the latter country.

the dairy  and cold storage    commis* ,

The growth of the fruit Industry in

object being to bring the fruit grow- \

action on such  broad  matters as af-
feet the whole industry-
Essential to its success is the sup- i

Distinctive Dress In England.
At  L'oiuts'  bank  the clerical  assistants must nil wear frock coats, and no
uue in the employment of the bank is
allowed to go about with his trousers
turned up.    At Boare's batik it Is the
custom of all those employed to wear
white ties.   Members of the legal profession observe the etiquette of their calling by abstaining from the wearing of
lieebt or  fancy colored clothes and always   wear   silk   lints.     The   beadles
of some Presbyterian churches in England   wear  dress suits  instead  of  the
Anglican    cassock.       Some    brewers'
workmen  and  driiynieu   wear  scarlet
knitted wool nightcaps.   In fact, nearly every  Hade ami profession  has its
own conventions and unwritten  laws
concerning the dress of its members.-

I value of such a service.
For every railway station in Western Canada there are two post offices
and, in addition, there is the rural de
livery service. The parcels post of
the United States, now one year old,
has received immediate popular ap-1
proval; its rates have been reduced
and service Improved, and the maximum weight per parcel raised from
11 to 50 pounds. The general lack of
interest in the parcels post by the
people of Canada seems likely to act
against its usefulness. The fruit
grower will have to press hard, if he
|is to obtain advantages similar to
those granted to his fellow grower in
the I'nited States.

Following the addition of about ilG

dance at the special court of .assize
sitting in the city, counsel representing tho Btriking miner, John Anderson, now on ''rial, yesterday afternoon
challenged the entire panel on the
ground that it had not been summoned regularlj.
It   was   contended   by   the   defence
that the sheriff had not proceeded ac-
I cording   to  the  regulations  in   draw-
j ing  the  original   panel  and   that  the
two   subsequent   additions   to   it   had
been  made  without  sufficient notice
having Lcen given of the intention to
j summon new jurors.
The presiding judge took no stock
in the objection and '.he trial of Anderson proceeded. This case will occupy the time of the court at least
till the noon adjournment today and
may run still longer. The usual six

Solid traJnloads of Irrigation farmers from the Irrigated areas of Colo
rado to the C. P. Ii. irrigation block
in Alberta are the direct outcome of
[the policy adopted by the Canadian
Pacific railway of encouraging to :r ������
Irrigated lands settlers with practical
experience in farming under similar
conditions. Colorado is one of lhe
leading irrigation slates, and artificial
use of water Is a vital feature of
agriculture. A party cf representative farmers from that state were
shown over the irrigated district in
Alberta last fall, and wen* so impressed with the possibilities of the
Canadian district that thev nt once
closed contracts for all the land within the ready made farm colony in tin*
Bassano district. These farmers with
their wives, families nnd effects will
leave Colorado by special train about
.March 1 en route for their new homes
in Alberta.
The Importance of this movement
to the development of Western Canada can hardly be over estimated. The
fact thai the foremost Irrigation farmers of the United States, after a per
sonal examination of the irrigated
ar a In Albi rta, are S( lling tli-ir hold
Ings in Colorado and moving in train-
loads to Canada tells Its own story.'
h is the besl assurance . f the great
possibilities w hich await the Canadian irrigation district, as it shows
thai In the opiniou of practical and
successful irrigation farmers, the opportunities awaiting them In Canada
are greater than are to b<* found else-,
The trail.1* a,i of settlers already refi rreii to is onl) the beginning of a
movement which this season promisss
to ��� clipse all i ast ri cords. Other'
trainlcads �� ill be made up from time
to time, and so important is this
traffic . xpected to become that a special sii! -track has been sel '.-side at
Minnesota Transfer for the handling
of these trains. The twenty years'
terms offered by the C. P. IL, combined with the fertility and natural
advantages of Canadian soil, are proving an attraction loo great to be resisted by practical American farmers.

Cooperative Organizations.
A year ago you Instructed your
executive to press on the provincial
government the necessity of long term
loans, at a low rate of Interest, to cooperative organizations.
Your executive accordingly pressed
the matter with the provincial government, and the government passed
amendments to the agricultural associations act, providing for 20 year
loans at 4 per cent. Interest, up to 80
per cent, of the subscribed capital
when 20 per cent, was paid up. The
government further provided the services of an organizer, R. Robertson,
and the deputy minister of agriculture, who together labored successfully to bring Into being eight local
organizations in the Okanagan and at
Salmon Arm. which subsequently
united to form the "Okanagan United
Growers' Limited," to market their

issued to the eight local associations.

Your executive, seeing a possible
fruit business ln carloads by express,
has taken action for Its securing the
requisite service. This promises no
particular difficulties; the creation of
the proper agency to make up carloads being a serious question.
Fruit Trade with Antipodes.
The usual annual increase in shipments of B. C. and Washington apples to Australia and New Zealand
has heen accentuated by the additional cold storage space provided on the
new boats. Shipments totalled about
270 carloads, of which S7 were from
R. C. nearly double the largest previous shipment; the balance from
Washington. We could not probably
supply a much greater quantity at
present, but our Increasing crops
make It desirable to pave the way for
a larger proportion of the business In
future years.
Marketing Fruit in Carloads.
The soft fruits of the interior present problems In marketing, and the
increasing production of plums,
primes and peaches, estimated at 400
cnrloads for 1914, demands adeqiute
marketing facilities. As a cotitrlhu-
cion to such facilities, It is fell that
th" time has ncw come for marketing
in carloads by express, wieh distributing rates to country points.
Marketing on the Prairies.
General discussion among fruit
growers and the specific labors of tho
association have made it very clear
ithat the safeguarding of our markets
at reasonable prices must come, not
through legislative enactment, but by
.i better understanding with tho consumers. It Is only four years ago
since prairie farmers' organizations
made advances to the fruit growers
and farmers of B. C. looking to closer
itrade relations and a better mutual
understanding.    Indifference  on  our
I part, due to our favorable position as
to  demand   nnd   prices   for our   products,   stifled   the   movement   at   Its

the time of the accident.
The inquest in Toronto, which was
opened on Sept. 30, was presided over
by the chief coroner, Dr. Jukes Johnson. After no less than nine sitting*,
the jury finally returned their verdict
on Nov. 30. Their finding blamed the
