The council declined to lake any  action on tho petition presented by  Mr. W.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  Published Every Friday  AUGUST 5, 1921  Seven     years ago.    England     declared a  state of war against-Germany for that nation's  violation of Belgium's neutrality and within  a few hours after King George had given   his  assent to the measure passed in the Hou'ye of  Commons, troops were being, rushed to the aid  of   Prance and   Belgium. ' As   time   went on  thousands of men were trained and .sent, into  battle and on the ninth day of February, 1915,  the flower of Canada's .manhood landed on the  shores of sunny France, ready to   take   their  place in the battle line   for the   cause of freedom. - Little did we think at that time, what a  serious game war'is, but when the first cables,  arrived telling of the fathers, sons and sweethearts who had laid down their lives, then and  then only, did we begin to realize- that   after  all Sherman'was right.   But once faced with  the grim reality of this mighty   weapon that  was steadily wiping out the nation's man power, the people .of Canada got down to business  in true Canadian fashion and it was not long  before socks.were   being   sent to the   troups,  hospitals erected and equipped to take care of  the wounded, homes   established for the convalescent while all the time a steady   stream  of well-equipped, well trained,  soldiers    were  being, sent across   the seas to fill   the gaps in  that never dauntless line. Sometimes a ray   of  sunshine and hope appeared through clouds of  . despair, when we read of the splendid achievements of our gallant lads.at Givinchy, Hill 70,  Courc'elette, Vimy Ridge, and other now historical spots, where" the Hun was driven back  with great loss. The   beginning of 1918   saw  the troops weary of   war   and   the   people at  home weary, of waiting. That memorable drive  made by the Germans in February of that year  left us gasping with fear that all our efforts  were perhaps in vain., Then.came a relaxation  of the strain.   The tide of   battle had   turned.  The Allies   were   chasing the   Bosche on all  fronts. Battle after battle   was won   and still,  the hand of Foch pressed the German horde  farther and   farther backward.   As the   summer waned, the thoughts of another winter-of  war had a depressing effect on us all,   troops  and civilians alike.   Is it any wonder that the  wholec ountry went wild   with joy when   the  news was flashed across the continent on the  morning of November .11th that the   greatest  struggle in history was over?   That the armistice had been signed and hostilities had ceased.   Now the war is a thing of the past, a bit- ���������  ter memory of a   world-wide struggle   caused  through greed for power, which left   vacant  chairs in thousands of homes and   heartaches  among     thousands of   mothers,   wives    and  sweathearts and now, on this seventh anniversary of its beginning, let us work and pray for  that universal peace for which   David   Lloyd  George and his government are striving.  The negotiations at present being carried on  point to a filial settlement of the so-called  Irish question. Every British "subject knows  that as things are, the Irish republicans are  rebels, but we refuse to deal with them as  such. They are treated, and they will always  be treated as members of the same family,  fractions but only slightly erring.  It may be that we are optimistic but we honestly believe that the statesmanship of Ireland  both in the North and in the South, is equal to  the birth o a new idea. The two sections of  the Irish people are each led by men of vision,  who, however they may be led astray by their  personal views, must take heed of the actual  conditions.    They cannot be ignored.  It can be taken for granted that the, two  sections of the Irish people will come together  on all that is really essential to a settlement.  The part played by the. old quarrels,and the  troubles arising therefrom can be avoided by  foregetting. Why not forget?���������Kamloops  Standard Sentinel.  The decision of the court of appeal regarding the liability of automobile owners, for accidents, will be welcome news to thousands! of  people throughout the province. In" the past,  an owner was held responsible for any accident whether he himself was driving the car.  or not and thousands of dollars worth of damages have been reluctantly paid by owners of  cars,'who had the misfortune to have their car  mixed up in an accident while it was being '  driven by a friend or employee. But the decision of the appeal court changes the status  of an auto owner in so far as, he is not how  deemed liable for any damages unless lie is  personally in charge of the car for which he  has taken out a license.  Through the efforts of Ex-Minislcr of Com-;  nninications Yen Kung-cho, of the Chinese  Republic, and a few of his friends a bank is to  be established at Shanghai which is to bo  known as "The People' Bank of China." The  new enterprise which will have a capitalization of $1,000,000, will have as its object, in  addition to conducting the usual banking, business, the speciall attention of enterprises that  will assist'the poor. This is a progressive  step in the right direction and one that should  commend itself to the attention oi' some of our  Canadian banking institutions.  Fear is expressed among the thirsty of the  Province, that the next step on the part of organized labour, will-be to induce the wane  clerks in Government liquor stores to go out  on strike for a 44 hour week. This" would  mean the loss of four valuable hours of time  in which to get permits filled out.  Readers of the Vancouver World are being  taught how to play tennis by William T. Til-  den, world's famous grass court champion.  This may suit some people but there are a lot  more that would welcome a few lessons on  "how to play, the ponies."  Now that Bob Edwards has been elected to  the legislature, it is up to him to donate a free  subscription to the "Eye Opener" to each of  his fellow members.

The night cops will have a merry time around the back-yard fences at night,  picking out the untagged feline beauties.  Now that the courts have declared it legal  to carry a "nipper" of Government "licker,"  it is up to the Control Board to adopt a bottle  to fit the back pocket.

They are skilled business  men and rifts In their ranks are eas-  ily healed by the balm of self interest. Growers' organizations have  held the right of price setting of their  produce for the past three years, due  to their organizations. Consignment  shipping was insufficient to upset  this.

While the , question of supremacy may be a matter of  opinion only,, the fact.remains  that the Mission-Hatzic district  has and is producing a quality  of fruit second to none in the  Dominion of Canada, and rank  ing with the best placed on the,  markets across the border  where the industry is on a  much more . extensive basis  than it is'here, and where the  growers have the benefit of  years of experience in produc  es div-0<-!"i up bet  berries, ioganberr;  ries and .currants.  Quality Very Good  And the quality of the berries  produced in this   district   have  always   been on a   par if   not  better than those grown in the  east and Southern Oregon; This  year, owing to the extreme wet  weather,th:e, strawberries grown  around the mainland were not  as good as the.farmers wished  for,     as they    were     too soft  generally for   table   use,    but  were, fairly  good jam  quality.  On the other hand - the   raspberry crop this ' year   was the  largest ever taken off and the  quality away   above the   average, the   Dominion   Fruit.

Besides having  the quality, the    berries    were  plentiful and as a-  result    the  Fruit and Mercantile Exchange,  Ltd.,   which   is  a  co-operative  non-profit     association,    have  shipped'something over      125  cars of raspberries to the prairies up to date.  Shortage of Hoxes .  Although    the.     strawberry  season was a poor one on the  whole, the    growers    were up  against the obstacle of not being  able to secure crates from   the  box  rectories  in  time to  pack  and  ship their wares to eastern -points at the   right   time.  The F.and M which is made up  of about 95 p. c. of the growers of the   Mission-Hatzic. district, ordered from the box factories of B. C.,. 170,000   crates  for immediate delivery to'meet  tho needs of    their   -members.  Apparently  this  large amount  of unexpected business caught  the manufacturers  with  their  coats on, for-they failed to produce enough crates    to handle  the strawberry crop   and as   a  result drily 52 cars of this fruit  were shipped from Hatzic siding and much of what available  berries there were to be had,  never reached    the    markets.  This unforeseen handicap, coup,  led with the small crop produced, was a severe blow to    the  growers and    the    majority of  them lost money on strawberries as a result.  Dealers Praise Growers  One of the outstanding features of the present berry season  see  that  ing this class of fruit. But in I has. been the unstinted praise  experience only are the grow-sthat has been bestowed on the  ers across the line ahead of local growers by the dealers  the Valley men, for it is a safe on the prairies. Hardly a day  bet that they posses no better J passes but what the office of  land for the growing of rasp-;the F and M receives a. tele-  berries  than   that owned    on  the  lower mainland.  Forging Ahead   Gradually  Although     the   small   fruit  growing industry is still in its  infancy here, it is steadily growing from year to year and in   a  short time will come to be recognized as a link in the chain  of British    Columbia    productions,    ranking Jn    importance  with the lumber and fishing industries which for years   have  maintained a premier position  among the commercial    enterprises of the Dominion. Especially is this true when one takes  into consideration the fact that  prior    to      the    summer     of  1914  there were only    14 3-4  acres of strawberries and  123  1-2 acres of raspberries under  cultivation in the Mission-Hatzic district as   compared   with  447 acres of strawberries    and  582 acres of raspberries at the  beginning of this year, which  is a record for the growers to  well be proud of. The increase  in acreage has of   course been  gradual as the years went on,  but the past   two   years   have  been  exceptional inasmuch as  that no less thai 296 acres of  strawberry plants were put in  that no less than 296, acres of  raspberry canes were put down,  giving the district north of the  Fraser river a total acreage of  2520   2-3 in   small   fruits.   Of  this  number,  1029  acres    are  planted with strawberries   and  raspberries, while the ��������� balance  gram of commendation from a  dealer expressing appreciation  for the excellent condition   of  purpose of transporting perishable freight, have large ., ice  compartments at each end, the  sides being heavily insulated  in order to keep out the heat.  The berry crates are ' packed  with such accuracy that they  will not jolt around during  shipment over the roughest  roadbed. And in shipping by  this manner the fruit reaches  its-destination in good hardy  shape.        "      ���������  Cost of Production  While    the,, consumer    sits  down to "the table and. enjoys $S.OO  his dish of    raspberries " with  cream and grouses about    the  high price of fruit in general,  he rarely  ever stops  to  think  about, what,it. costs the grower  to produce tlie fruit he is eating.   And costs   to-day   are of  the utmost importance when it  conies to the    setting    of    the  whole-sale price of any commodity.    Although    the    price of  raspberry canes arc about the  same to-day ast hey were before  tho World   war,   the   cost   of  labor for picking the fruit, the  cost of crates and other'Items  have all gone soaring since the  time William took it into  his  head he could lick   the - world.  In 1916 it cost the growers ^45  per cent of the 6 1-4 cents per  pound they received   for   their  strawberries to have them picked.   The crates they were packed, in, cost 17 ,cents each.    To  clay the growers are paying the  pickers  85  cents  per crate', or  20 per cent, of what they received for their product, while the  cost of crates has reached   the  high water ��������� mark of 32   cents  each.    Last year  the  growers  received around   $4.88 a   crate  for their raspberries.    It.cost  .them 26 per cent, of this amount  to have them picked.      To-day  they are getting $4.00 a crate  and out of this the pickers' get  85 cents, the cold-storage'plant  takes 15 cents   more for   pre-  cooling;  the crate costs    them  32. cents more to-say nothing of  the costs of labor before picking time at $2.50 per day' 'and  board per man and the    extra  cost for handling at the storage plant.    Of course the independent grower who ships    in  less than carload  lots    avoids  part of this cost but It is doubtful whether his product reaches the   eastern   market in   as  good condition as the pre-cooled berry.  Costs Must Drop  All indications point to this  being a trying year for the  small fruit grower and one and  all are of the opinion that the  cost of production must be reduced materially if the industry  is to thrive from now on.   The  end, a large quantity   of'growers,  raspberries are now being froz-ithe    whole  en at the cold storage plant to ' picking.    II  I'H'orc  they  J-c turned into jam later: , The  association' have already put  away about 500 tons of strawberries and a percentage, of  other fruits which will . bb  stored almost. at once.  Strawberries in order to keep  must,be put away packed with  sugar on the ratio of half, a  pound to a pound of berries,  which' makes this venture a cost  ly one with sugar worth about  per hundred pounds.    A  'hey maintain that  secret lies in the  berries are picked  get too ripe they  will ship to the east in good  shape for the market aiKLwilh  require no pre-cooling. They  point out that berries have been  shipped for years'by express,  with satisfactory results and  they scoff at the statement of  j. A.

On the  other   hand   the   co-operative.  men contend that one "and all  are satisfied, one of the largest  going so far as to prodict that  another year would see    every  grower on the lower'mainland,  linked up   with the   organization.  Favor Amalgamation  '��������� The majority of the local  growers are in accord on the  question of amalgamation with  the growers of the United States: As one pointed out, the lower mainland together with southern Oregon and California,  comprises the greatest small  fruit area in the world, and it  is only natural that the interests  indications arc ihas the    price  will remain firm for hoivo time  to come..   The price    ol* boxes  however,   is   dropping     down  steadily and it would    not   be  surprising if this item will be a  mere detail ui the overhead cos'  of canning this fall and winter.  But taken all the way through,  the establishment of a canning  factory   by.  the   F   and   M is  bound to    prove an    expensive  venture at the start and may be  more so as the   time   goes on,  for it is doubtful whether    the  co-operatives will  be able    to  compete in the    open    market  with corporations like the Dominion Canners and other well-  known firms.

This plant which was erected last year, cost the growers  $55,000 but it, has proven a good  investment.   When   the berries  are brought in from the farm  to the platform at Hatzic, they  generally test   around   76   degrees Fahrenheit.    The berries  are immediately    placed in    a  pre-cooling     room    which   is  kept at a temperature of 40 degrees and are left there until  they are loaded on the refrigerator cars for    shipment    to  eastern points.    Great care is  exercised in loading of the cars  in-order that no heat conies in  contact with the berries.    The  small areas between the storage  plant doorways    and   the   car  doors, are   protected   from the  sun and warm atmosphere   by  canvas curtains.  The main hall  of the   storage   plant   is   kept  around 40 degrees also, so the  berries are kept at the same  degree of temperature from the  time they reach the pre-cooling  room until they are loaded on  the cars.   These cars which are  specially constructed for    the  convinced that a fair  labor on a fruit farm  ducers who are^holdin  a fair price foivtheir commodity: So far there is no signs of  a settlement of the wrangle and  now the F and M has come out  with announcement that they  are going to erect a plant of  their own, claiming that this  action has been forced on them  by the canners. The associated  growers arc adverse to accepting the price offered by the  canners which was quoted recently at nine cents per pound  for canning berries and six to  seven .cents per pound for jam  quality. On the other hand'the  independent growers who  number about five per cent, of  those in the district, are said to  have agreed     to    accept    the  wage for, prevail ing  would be as   a result  $1.50 per day and board; while market    for  market   price and  have a     steady  all    their'     ber-  in the picking season, the piece |ries of this class.

And as to timated to the write? that there1 Mission"Hatzic dlstrict become  outfoi?(another invitation will be extended this, fall, and better  hopes are held out that a joint  meeting can be arranged.  If this is brought about, the  growers here should go one  step farther and invite the Niagara Peninsula growers to send  representatives to the meeting.  The men from Ontario have had  many years experience in the  growing of small fruit, and  without a doubt, their advice  on questions pertaining to the  good of .the industry generally,  would be welcomed by all. Such  a conference would be of prime  importance to all growers, insomuch as a working agreement  could be arrived at for the stabilizing of prices.  The future of the berry growing in this district depends on  sound management and no  stone should be left unturned  in order that the fruit from the  crates, th egrowers believe that  planY aT~Hat- they are l)ayillg about double  'what they should for the fruit  containers. This item in the  cost of production has been an  imaginary thorn in the side of  the growers ali year atid there  is strong talk among the members of the F and M that unless  the box manufacturers are prepared to contract this fall for  next year's supply of crates at  what they consider a fair price,  they .will go ' ahead and erect  their own box factory in order  that they can supply their crates  at practically cost next summer. Undoubtedly this would  be a good step on the part of  the growers if such a thing  should come to pass, but for a  young organization it would  perhaps b������ better to go slow in  the matter of expenditures as  history has shown that many  a promising baby has been  crippled by trying to walk when  it should only be creeping.  In Canning Business  Announcement has already  been made by the F and M that  they will erect their own canning plant this fall and toward  was a possibility of the independents also going into the  canning game on a small scale  but such a rumor should be  taken with a grain of salt because the independents are in  the minimum and they least of  all, would be in a position to  withstand a price war with the  big canners.  Arc Doing Well  But in any event the independents claim they are doing well  on their product this year and  are apparently well satisfied  with the prices they are receiving. They are up against a  slightly higher production cost  than the co-operactives inasmuch as their crates are costing  them about 4 1-2 cents apiece  more, besides they have the difference in shipping rates to  shoulder between carload and  L.C.L. However they have a  steady market on the prairies,  one firm serving 2,000 small  retailers and consumers direct.  The independents laugh at the  statement that their berries do  not reach the desination in as  good condition as the pre-cool-  as famous as the oranges  southern California.  of  PRAIRIE CROP  CONDITIONS   REPORT  Week of abnormally hot weather  wilh light showers over small scattered areas has' resulted in lowering  anticipated yields in the throe provinces. Good heavy rainfall would  still benefit; harvesting of rye and  barley ganeral and in some places  completed. In southern Manitoba  cutting of early sown wheat is in progress and will be general within week  or ten days. Red rust exists.in various districts in Manitoba and Saskatchewan, no damage reported.  Black rust has affected some crops  but not extensively. The intensely  hot weather during the past month,  has reduced expectations, but does  not impair prospects for a crop above  the average of years since 1915. The  campaign on grasshoppers has been  successful and minimized losses from  this cause. Hail over scattered areas  caused some damage, but not no  severe as previous week.
