I JO   W>  Farmers 1912  District Exhibits for  Provincial Fall Fair  Market Conditions  on the Prairie  Distinct features at the Provincial  Exhibition, New Westminster, this  year will be the displays and exhibits' of field and orchard crops. The  unusual early harvest are combining  to "produce fruits, vegetables, grains  and roots of unusual quality. As the  fair is a month off the bulk of the  entries have not yet come in, nevertheless there are considerably more  entries in already than -at the same  time of any previous year, according  to D. E. McKenzie, manager.  The District Exhibit competition  is.-attracting more attention than usual, and there have... been received  from the Ravelstoke-Malakawa district. Central B. C, Kamloops, Lang-  ley, Surrey, Richmond, Burquitlam,  and Burnaby. There are five entries  in the District Fruit exhibit from  Penticton, Vernon, Summerland, Ke-  lowna and Burquitlam. ��������� Reports  have been received from the Okanag-  an. centres, stating that the fruit  crops are' very good this year, and  the fruit is of excellent quality.  These conditions will increase the  volume of the displays quite considerably.  "The association has added another  competition to their list this year,  namely, the Individual Farm Produce competition. To compete the  exhibitor must include in his exhibit  four different kinds of field crops,  eight different kinds of garden vegetables, four different kinds of fruit  either fresh, preserved, canned  dried or jellied, and any two of the  following, viz., cured meat, dressed  poultry, eggs, cheese or butter. The  keen rivalry between farmers and  the large prizes are enticing a large  number of entries, one from as far  off  as  the Arrow Lakes.  The Markets' Comissioner has just  returned from a brief visit to prairie  points' as far east as .Winnipeg, including Edmonton, Saskatoon, Re-  gina.  He finds that the market is very  heavy to American soft fruit and apples, so much so that the early B. C.  offerings' are not interesting the jobbers to any extent. Selling F. O. B.  shipping point in B. C. is found to be  almost impossible and rollers unsold  is open for bids from competitive jobbers and there is no health, in this  state  of  affairs.  We consider that the only way.to  stapilize prices is to sell on an F. O.  3. shipping point basis. Unfortunately those not selling through the union are-a disturbing-factor against a  strict F. O. B. shipping point deal  and it seems that some attention will  be needed to remove this dififculty.  The Washington market is very  heavy and tho agents of shippers  from there are very, active trying to  force themselves on the prairie market. One firm's representative could  not get a broker to handle his wares  and is threatening to sell direct to  the retail  trade.

We had  a sample of them sent to this office  Ly Mr. Thompson, and find them of  excellent quality. The early variety  is named the "Okanagan Queen". It  should prove a popular seller being  on the market ahead of any Southern  grown Yams.  We understand that quite an acreage is planted to sweet potatoes in  the Osoyoos district this year. These  should find a ready market. TheAs-  sociated growers of Vernon will furn-  h'h full particulars as to quantity,  quality and time of shipment to all  intersted in distribution.

A KM  YOU COMPUTING  AT TIIK   FALL  FAIR?  The s'venth annual Abbotsford-  Siunas exhibition will be held on  Thursday and Friday, September  20 and 21, which is not long in coming now. The president.says that it  looks as though the fair this year-  will be just as good as last year if  not better. Already a very large  number of the last year's exhibitors  have signified their intention of a-  gain entering for competition, and a  number of the new-comers are to do  their first competing in the district  this year. He bar. talked with many  who want to see 'the fair thi.-s year  much bigger and better than last  year,  which  of    course    was    good.  The prize lists are now published  and distributed throughout the district and already.-entries* have been  made.   ,  It is up to all who reside in this  district to help along the i'������?.ir for the  sake of the fact that it is your home  where you live and expect to live for  sometime. A good fair is a community booster and a commuity  builder. The open rivalry by neighbors, and the question decided by a  stranger who perhaps does not know  any of the competitors should give  results as to which is the best, be it  vegetable's, fruit, cows, horses or any  uf the many articles entered for competition. The satisfaction of being  the winner even' over your best  friend competitor, is worth putting a  -whole lot of vim into an exhibition  tjuch as is to be held on Sept. 20  and 21st.  Decide now what you are go.-ng to  do this, _year. Be a community  booster..  K1LGAKI)   NHWS  Mr. and Mrs. Geo.

It may be a long  time but it is sure to come. The following is the clipping:  "Two ocean going freighters, tho  C. G. M. M. Canadian Frighter,  bound for Japan, and _ the SS. Steel  Scientist, en route for the Atlantic  Seaboard, passed down stream last  night within half an hour of each  other. Capt. Ford, head river pilot  was in charge of the Canadian  Freighter, while Capt. Edwards had  charge of the Steel Scientist."  It will be impossible for the Bur-  rard Inlet to handle economically ai.  the business that will accrue should  the millions.of bushels of wheat  start coming strong to the coast for  shipment. .This will bring other  trade" for the Pacific, and the development might surprise even many of  the pioneers of this province.  Do more boosting for the Fraser  River, New Westminster!  alion we have lecently heard so  much of, and do something tangible  towards securing action at the next  session of the legislature. The majority of the cities in the interior are  with us we understand that the B. C  Automobile. Association wcuM be  ready to work for it; many of our  legislators ..-.re pledged to the Fraser  River canyon riute and Kamloops is  the logical point to set agoing the  campaign in its favor.  There was ,or.ce a Fratier Canyon  Highway committee hern, bent on  getting public opinion into I1113 in  favor of tlie route. There is the remains of a fund still in the bank  which would form a nucleus for the  new campaign.  Passing resolutions and sending  them to Victoria Is no good. We require action of a more strenuous and  concrete nature. That this will come  there is no doubt and it is' trusted  that all interested, and that should  be every citizen with public welfare  in his make-up,will rally to the cause  and get something definite done.���������  Kamloops Standard-Sentinel.  assented and section four of tlwi  treaty gives to British' and Japanes  subjects equal rights to own or lease  land or warehouses in the territory  of the other, but this applies only to  commercial purposes but section five  is the one dealing with agricultural  land and it expressely provides that I  this can only be dou'i on "A Condition of Reciprocity" and as Japan refuses this right,to uj there can be no  possible objection,...with full regard  to treaty rights,, to refuse them the  same privilege in Canada.  "This matter shoul 1 be pressed at  once."  Sometime ago an auto association  known as the B. C. Automobile Association was started with the object  of organizing all the small places in  the province into one big organization for the purpose of looking after  the auto interests in the province. It  awakened the old Vancouver Automobile Club which has come to be  quite active outside the-' city of Vancouver, and a very active interest has  been taken in points throughout the  Fraser Valley.    Signs have been put  up    in .many,    .prominent    points,} produced on the farms  The public has been long told by  learned writers that the movement  from the farms to the cities, which  has been a feature of the trend of  the population for many decades, was  something highly desirable. Many  plans were proposed, therefore, to  make life on the farms more attractive to the boys and girls, and so keep  them close to the soil. Now comes a  radically different view, set forth by  a group of economists in conference  with the Canadian department of a-  griculture.  Referring to the movement from  the farms to the cities, this report  speaks hopefully of this as likely to  increase future demand    for    foods  The    more  There appears to be a posisbility  that Victoria's delegates to the Union  of 13. C. Municipalities' convention at  Prince Rupert this month may advocate while there an income tax t) br>  levied jointly by the municipalities  and the provincial government. We  do not know what the details oJ this  proposal may be, but if it involves  new taxation, then'we are opposed to  it root and branch. We have, dual  income tax collection at present, and  it is all and more than all sufficient.  It cannot be collected in full, for a  certain percentage of- the people will  not, and cannot pay. This newspaper  has advocated time.,and time again  that there should be only one income  tax collecting agency. It has said  tliat agency should be the province.  There is duplication now of the machinery for collection, and that duplication, because of the expense it  involves, means more taxation. Any  proposal for a municipal Income tax  must be opposed strenuously, for,  that would mean a triple tax, and no  doubt, three forces of officials for  collection purposes, with the consequent waste in effort, a waste which  should never be tolerated for a moment in the business of government,  if it were only.,viewed as a business.  ���������Victoria Colonist.

In refernece' to  another' party putting up, road signs  the council instructed the clerk to  write pointing out that the exclusive  right to'place signs had been given  to the B. C.

The  delegates from the various parts of  the province will journey there to  do business. Other parts of the province have been favored by the presence of meetings of this Union, and  it is fitting that Prince Rupert, with  its boosters, beautiful " sun-sets and  growing importance commercially be  visited by the municipal delegates.  There is one thing that the delegates will find and that is that they  will be most heartily welcomed, and  perhaps find that the people in the  northern city are a most patient lot,  even if they did."get a costly court  house. There is not a road out of  Prince Rupert by land except over  the railroad, and there instead of  autoing the people have motor boat  riding. On this visit it will be up  to the city to convince the delegates  that they should emphasize to the  government the necessity of having  a highway leading from Prince Rupert to connect with other parts of  the province.  The Union has done good work for  B.

There is no danger of world-wide  shortage of products of the soil, if  recently compiled statistics can be regarded as trustworthy. Fully oner  half of the workers of the world are  now engaged in agriculture.

Cowper, former M.L.A.  and now conducting a new weekly  paper "The Hook", in Vancouver  says that following the defeat of the  provincial government, in the Supreme Court, Court of Appeal, Supreme Court of Canada and Privy  Council, in its efforts'to exclude the  Japanese from the forests, crown  lands and government" contracts of  the province, a movement has beer  started to demand the repeal of tho  Japanese treaty a������t.  , This act passed in 1922, at Ottawa  is the stumbling block of the province as it confers on all Japanese full  rights to enter, move about and engage in business here on the same  basis as Canadian subjects'. He says  that the demand will be made for Inclusion of a clause such as was stipulated for by Australia and South  Africa limiting the right of Japanese  to enter here.  On his return from Ottawa, Mr. A.  VV. Neil, M. P., (Independent, Comox  ������^c. ������fttU  Alberni), gave the following advice  "If the farmers of the province wish  to check the owning or leasing of  land for agricultural purposes by the  Orientals they should at once urge  the local government at its next sesr  sion to pass a test act to prohibit  such.  "The question, as a matter of civil  right, comes entirely under provincial jurisdiction subject only to any  rights given by treaty.  "There is a treaty to which Canada  For the past two seasons raspberry  growers in Ontario have been paying  special - attention to this-disease. It  is unnecessary to emphasize the importance of mosaic, but it may be  advisable to stress the fact that a  careful system of eradicating the  diseased plants from commercial  plantings will yield a good economical control. The situation is much,  more hopeful than it appeared a year  ago.  Symptoms  In looking for plants affected with  mosaic the leaves on the young canes  are most suitable for observation.  The symptoms will first be found  during June and will gradually become more pronounced as the season  advances. On the older leaves normal dark green, raised or puckered  areas'"can be observed scattered over  the leaf surface, the remainder of  which is a yellowish green. The  younger leaves present a more mottled appearance with the dark areas  showing prominently, more often  these are not raised or puckered. The  fruit from diseased plants is seedy  and lacks flavor.  Low dwarfed bushes with yellowish foliage usually ��������� signify the presence of mosaic in an old plantation.  This-does not apply to parts of the  plantation where the ground is low  or in which the soil condition is such  as to give rise to sickly plants. Such  a condition can be differentiated  from mosaic by the lack of true mosaic mottling on the leaves.  Control  The most permanent control measures for the elimination of mosaic  from raspberry plantations begin  with the planting of disease-free  stock. The practise of taking plants  from an old planting irrespective of  the amount of mosaic present must  cease if the disease is to be controlled...-.;';'  Old plantations with mosaic present should be left alone and new  ���������plants secured from a well recommended source. Exception may be  taken when less than 5 per cent, diseased plants are found. In such  a case it may be advisable for a  grower to thoroughly eradicate the  diseased plants from a few rows in  his plantation in order to secure his  own nursery stock.

On setting out a new plantation  with disease free stock, it is advisable to have it isolated by 50 to 100  feet from any other raspberries, cultivated or wild.

"Your prosperity depends on tho  country back of you. It depends on  ���������-he wheat fields of the prairies."  i.e said, "if our farmers are going  lo have to market 400,000,000 ���������lui'sh-  els of grain this year and sell it ai  ;;f> cents or 80 cents a bushel, when  it costs a dollar a bushel to raise,  your prosperity is going to be affected.  "You can't build prosperity 0:1 red  ink.     You do build it on bhi 5 ink.  "Vancouver is a seaport, but,Vancouver is built on the crops of Canada. Agriculture is your dominant  industry. Prosperity for Vancouver  depends on the buying power of fruit  men mid dairy men of tlie province,  ol' tlie wheat and live stock producers in the east."  One of tho things co-operative  marketing would do in Canada,, lie  said, would be to ship grain through  the best economic, channels ��������� lie  declared that Vancouver should handle not 20,000,000 bushels'of wheat  but 100,000,000 bushels, without'con  sidoratioii of freight rates.  "What is co-operative marketing?  he asked. "It is the attempt to put  into agriculture what you men put  in successful business practice every  day of your lives.  lie cited the condition of the cot-  top, growers of the United States in  the period between 1910 and 1920,  pointing to the lack of business  methods in .evidence of the points of  production of the premier branch of  agriculture in, tho United States.  Most of the 1,000,000 growers of  cotton in the United States, were  white families ho said. The average  income was $300 per year. The result was' a low standard of living for.  these families, which put the southern states one or two generations behind the states-of the north. Those  engaged having no purchasing power  the entire comunity suffered.  "Cotton was the basic industry  just-as wheat is the basic industry in  Canada," he said.  "You can never remedy an economic.ill,,by purely ' political means,  Attempts at political action result in  disillusionment, discouragement,  helplessness and often in "violence.  ���������-   "In.studying the situation we did  not study the individual, but the en-  ;ire system.

There is some  times a difference in .value of from  2 to 7 cents in the length of the fibre  which, is labour, the margin of profit  is contracting. Workmen leaving for  the United States claim that wages  in that country are on a more favorable' basis than in Canada, but it is  not so much the actual amount paid  as what that amount will buy that is  of importance. Whether a dollar  spent in the United States will buy  as much as a dollar spent in Canada  may be an open question, but as long  ast he workman is of the opinion that  it does, he will go to the United  States. There is, however, by no  means -unanimity as to the relative  advantages enjoyed in the two coun-  tries.as'is evidenced by the return of  many men who decided after practical experience that conditions Mi Can-  aria were preferable.  Immigration to Canada so far this  year ahows some increase over 1922.  Other favorable factors in the present situation are an increased volume  of foreign business, bank clearings  and railroad earnings, and the activity of'building operations.���������Bank, of  Commerce Report.  :o get stung farmers began to dig  fast, preferring that the unfortunate  person be his no ghbor. He threw his  potatoes on the market. In'California  the price went down to 50 cents a  sack and in some places it was about  70 cents a barrel. ��������� The local dealers  seeing the same signs, knew- ��������� that  someone would- get stuck and i.hey  preferred L.< unload and promptly  broke the price in New York.  "Tlie result was that 7S.000,000  bushels of potatoes were left in the  ground. Only the normal crop of  'potatos moved. Investigations showed that in New York the consumer  v as paying eight times what the producer in  Maine got. for potatoes.  "In brief we found thai the-consumer consumed the normal crop at  ithor.i. normal prices., The supply at'  she point of production made the  price of potatoes for the growers,  however.  "To make the price depend on the  nupi'ly at' the point of consumption  is what we moaii by mereuandizing  a-crop. It means ordinary intelligent, merchandizinz.

There had been some speculation  as to. whether or not the expert  would mention conditions among the  raisin growers of California where a  great overproduction of, raisins has  recently occurred. He dealt with it at  length and offered an explanation  that brought applause.  " "When I was a boy in California  or in other qualities of the cotton  But the farmer didn't know it.

"But in agriculture there is individual effort. The inclvidual meets  group producton, group financing,  and group marketing. There we  have put our finger on the one distinctive thing.  "The whole, aim of co-operative  marketing is to stop individual selling. But there are other things that  are done. In California we learned  to grade everything, literally, from  eggs' to nuts. We learned to extend  the time of marketing as well as to  extend the marketsand to intensify  consumption by advertising. England  Nicoman   island   matter.

Any industry pandering to  illegal desires of people deserves to  go under.  (Applause.)  "The association called its' bankers  into consultation and if was decided  that it needed $2,500,000 if it was to  survive. The chambers of commerce  of California began to assist it. The  San Francisco chamber of- commerce  underwrote it to the extent of $25 0,-  000.  ��������� "In one small town a banker was  presiding at a special meeting of the  chamber of commerce and he talked  to them straight.He said: 'If you let  this association go to pieces, we're  broke. Raisins will'go down to 1  cent a.pound and every bank, every  store, every town will be bankrupt.  "In oiie week the fund was oversubscribed and 87 rper cent of the  raisin growers were signed up, tho  management of the organization was  changed, prices were reduced, the li-  qv.or market was abandoned and an  effort will be made to win back the  household' market for raisins.  "I haven't told you this to advertise raisins, but to show you how tb.3  business life of a community .depends  upon -agriculture.  "This co-operative marketing can  and will be applied to your prairie  provinces. I have never seen a moie  wonderful spirit in my life, than that  in Alberta. All are standingabreast  to put-through a real co-operative  v. heat-marketing   organization.  "In Saskatchewan it is the same.  The only fly in the ointment is the  Regina Leader���������and it is a fly���������but  the rest of the newspapers across the  prairies are solidly behind co-operative marketing. In Manitoba there  is the same unity. In fact in all the  three provinces, bankers; farmers and  newspaper leaders are standing together. -And it needs" this union of  interest. No one class can solve the  problem. The farmer cannot solve it  alone, not even by entering politics.  "At meetings on the prairie Fort  William and Port Arthur had representatives to show the growers that  they' should send their crops east���������  but there was not a word from Vancouver. Vancouver ought to have,  not 2 0,000,00.0 bushels of prairie  wheat, but 100,000,000 bushels, and.  that is not taking equalized freight  rates into consideration. Instead of  providing 2,000,000 bushels accommodation you ought to provide 10,-  000,000 or 15,000,000. And' there  has not been a move out of Vancouver to tie up with the co-operative  movement.  "Canada is going to have co-operative marketing for her permanent  crops and Vancouver is going to help  in the formation of an intelligent  :non-speculative organization for the  prairies.  "So long as speculation dominates  the marketing so long will grain  move past Winnipeg. And so long as  the growers market their grain, will  it pass through Vancouver and the  east in economic routes'. (Applause.1  "Co-operative marketing changed  the face of California. Haven't yon  sometimes wondered why California  has graded so high in the union in  roads, per capita wealth, education,  and in the things which make" lite  worth living. It is because the farmers of California have large purchasing: powers.  "After all, crops' just mean what  we wear and what we read and what  we can do."  "In California farmers have'learned to stand on their feet and they  have done it without appeals to th<?  government, or by entering politics,  but just by standing together with  their community leaders. It has gone  to make a finer, more independent  and more intelligent population in  all California.  "If that little message from the  United States will mean anything to  you, I shall feel gratified and repaid"  Aaron Sapiro, brought up in an"  orphanage, self-made man and acknowledged leader in the advancement of co-operative : marketing in  America, was applauded for several  minutes. The applause was renewed when Julius Grififths, chairman,  thanked him in behalf of the club.���������  Vancouver Sun.

The report :sf  based upon the condition of crops  at the end of July and indicates that  three prairie provinces will produce  31)7,295,000 bushels of wheat if weather conditions remain favorable and  harmful agencies do not take too  heavy a toll.  Commenting upon the outlook the  report states:  "Crop conditions at the end of  July.are continuing to be generally  favorable, especially in Saskatchewan and Alberta, where the percentage condition for wheat and oats is  considerably above the average. In  Manitoba the condition for wheat  and oats is considerably above the average. In Manitoba the condition  for wheat has somewhat receded  during the month, damag-3 having  been caused by attack of rust and  saw fly.  "Manitoba, it is oxpeoted w.'U  have a total wheat yield of 44,4 6S-  000 bushels: Saskatchewan, 211,051-  000 bushels and Alberta 101,776,000  bushels. Final total estimates for  1922 in these three provinces were:  Manitoba, 60,001,000; bushels: Saskatchewan, 250,167,000, and Alberta  64,976,000."  The report also dealsiwith the condition of other crops. Canada is expected to produce 448,659,000 bushels of oats, 67,545,000 bushels of  barley. 27,819,000 bushels of rye,  C.507,000 bushels' of flax seed, and  56,251,000 centals of potatoes.

CLOVERDALE, Aug. 11.���������Plans  are going ahead for tlie formal opening on Labor Day, Sept. 3,. of the  Cloyerdale-Bkiine section of the Pacific Highway, the last stretch to be  paved on the Canadian side of the  line, and present' indications are  that the affair will be the most s .ic-  cessful that has ever been staged in  Cloverdale. Various organizations  in the municipality are giving their  support to the plan, as well as others  from New Westminster and Vancou-  ver.The automobile clubs of both cities particularly are expected to give  their entire co-operation to the affair.  Efforts are being made by1 the  committee in charge of the arrangements to have the Vancouver ..police  bandin attendance throughout the  day. Preliminary steps are also being taken to have erected a tatilet  inscribed with the date of the completion of the paving of the highway  the names of various provincial government officials and of the contractors in charge of the work. Those  hitter plans, however, are only in  their initial stages and the final details are yet to be. worked out.  Just what the programme1 for the  afternoon, of September 3 will consist of, has not been definitely decided on but in any event it is likely that there will be a programme  of speeches from various public men  of the province to whom invitiations  to attend are being mailed. This  programme will begin at 4 o'clock.  Tho speeches will Jie made in connection with the official opening whiclj  will be performed by Hon. Dr. -Sutherland, provincial minister of. public  works. A baseball game " will be  played earlier in the afternoon and  then in the evening a huge banquet  will be staged in the Cloverdale i.p-  ero   house.    Following   the   banq xet  there will''be dancing on the pave*  nient until the early hours of 'he  morning.  The foregoing arrangements are  only tentative, but it is expected that  a plan at least somewhat similar will  be followed.. There is no doubt about  one thing, however, and that is that  the event willbe the greatest affair  ever'held in the history of Cloverdale  HOT SPRINGS MAY  AGALN BE REVIVED  CHILLIWACK, Aug. 10.���������Information has been received here to the  effect that the old Armstrong estate  at Harrison Hot Springs has been  purchased by a Vancouver firm, the  First National Securities' Limited,  which purposes to restore the springs  to more than their old-time popularity. It was, stated by a representative of the firm that it was proposed  to form a stock company with a capital of ahalf a million dollars to de-'  relop the property and erect the necessary buildings tp replace those destroyed by fire some time ago.  The plans it is understood contemplate the erection of a 150-room  hotel and sanitarium equipped with  all tho most modern, appliances for  the treatment of the sick, to be managed by a medical man of specialized  training in sanitarium work, andy* a  hotel man familiar with the requirements of the tourist trade. For the  benefit of the guests it is planned to  construct a fine golf course.  A start is to be made on work this  fall and the construction is to be carried on as rapidly as the sale of stock  permits. The construction of the  highway on the north side of the river will, when completed, connect a  loop road by way of the Rosedtue-  Agassiz ferry which will enable tourists to travel by car through the Fraser Valley, taking In the beauties of  both Chilliwack and Mission, with  the hot springs as a stopping place.
