Fruitgrowers * a Grand Success���������  Many Delegates from All Parts oi  Tho   Province.  The annual convention of the B.  C. Fruitgrowers held its convention  on Tuesday and Wednesday last in  the Agricultural Convention Hall of  the Parliament Buildings. * Some  matters .of vital importance to the  fruitgrowers came up for discussion  during the course of the meeting and  very interesting addresses were given at the morning session by Sir  Richard McBride, Mr. F. W. Peters  and the president oi' the Association  Mr#> F. C. Ricardo, who read his annual address. ���������  .  A-very good- attendance was recorded, and, judging from the interest manifested, the convention, says  the Colonist, was a marked success.  Mr. Ricardo in opening the convention with the presidental address  said that he was very much encouraged by the large attendance of the  members, many of whom had come  at their personal expense, all the way  from the Interior of the Province to  ,tal;e part in the meeting.

Mr. F. W. Peters was then called  upon to speak in regard to the trans  portation services that would be afforded the fruit growers. He stated  that the railways were all interested  in the work doing their, best to reii-,  dered a satisfactory service to the  growers throughout the Province.  He reported  satisfactory, gains  in  the  freight shipments  from  various  fruit  centres  in  the  Okanagan   district   over   those ,clf   the     previous.,  years.    In Penticton there had been  an increase of 29 per cent; in Sum-'  merland,  8  per. cent;   Peachland  4 0'  per cent; in other points on the Okanagan .42  per  cent;   in Vernon  51  'per cent. ��������� ��������� t,  , In May the Kettle River Valley  Railway will open, although the exporters will not gain much benefit'  from it until later in the,year.

A reduction of 10 per cent, in the  salaries of all teachers in the High  School and graded schools was decided upon by the Boarrd of School  Trusteees. The cut, as authorized by  the board, makes no distinction between the high salaried and- low salaried teachers. AH must suffer proportionately. The saving effected bf  the reduction is estimated to amount  to $18,775. The reduction will become effective as from January 1 and  will be operative for the present year  There was some discussion as to  whether the reduction should be  made on the basis of a graded scale  according to the amount of salary  paid, or made by a fiat reduction on  ' all. Trustee Dinsdale suggested that  on salaries over $100 the reduction  should be 12 1-2 per cent, and under  $100, 10 per cent. Trustee Deaville's  motion for the 10 per cent cut all a-  round was approved.  The Abbotsford Hotel arrivals during the last few days included G. H.  Haveman, of Bradner, J. J.

A hearty vote .of thanks to the  Premier was moved by Mr. R. M.  Palmer, and seconded by the president,  Mr. Ricardo.        <*  In the ��������� afternoon, session was  heard a report from the markets  commissioner Mr: Forsyth Smith, on  his work during the past year in  stimulating trade with the Prairie  Provinces  and  Eastern   Canada.  On Wednesday' a number of resolutions were passed as follows:  1. "That the full pint hallock and  crate be adopted as a legal and a  standard package for berries, thus  equalizing competition with imported  fruit, particularly berries.  2. "That the dominion government be requested to enact legislation  compelling dealers receiving fruit on  consignment to make returns to the  shippers, showing condition of fruit  on arrival; to whom it was sold, the  buyers' address and the price received therefor and that returns be made  at least once a Aveek."  An address on "Cooperation in the  Okanagan" was then given by Mr. R.  Robertson, manager of the Okanagan  United Growers, who has been one  of the chief agitators for co-operative movement among fruit growers  for some time, and whose "efforts in  that direction have, already ��������� brought  many excellent results.  Mr. Robertson stated that the  true spirit of co-operation should be  for the members to bind themselves  together by contract or penalty and J drew attention to the fact that clover  give aid to those that are weaker an(i alfalfa could be grown,very pro-  and unable to bear as much burden as j fitably in conjunction, thus allowing  no waste space on the farms.  The Minister believed that a large  superior to the Washington products  and thatr they had secured a ready  market.        . ,  With regrd to the outlook of the  fruit industry in the Okanagan he  said that efforts would be made towards the amalgamation of .shipping  intrests. ' Tho country had the climate, the land and the people, and by  avoiding the mistakes that had previously' been made, the indications  pointed to real prosperity in the days  to come, such as yet had never been-  enjoyed.  The remainder of the morning was  spent in the discussion of the resolutions, a report on by-products'and a  general discussion on various points  brought up in the address of Mr. Robertson.  In the afternoon the discussion was  continued until the arrival r of the  Minister of Agriculture, the Hon.  Price Ellison.  "1 have had several previous opportunities," he said, " to address the  Association, but what 1 have to say fo  day will be on very different lines.  The time has passed when the Department of Agriculture had to urge  the fruit growers ot the Province to  continue in their work and to give  instructions as to how tho industry  should be conducted. You have become the most epert fruit grower in  the world, and not only do you produce the bes.t apples, but you have  gained for yourself the reputation of  being, the most expert fruit packers  in the world."  The Minister stated that he remembered the birth of the industry in  the Province when the first carloads  were being brought to the coast, and  it was a striking contrast to what  was going on today. The progress  that had been made not only reflected  credit on the farmers themselves, but  also on the efforts of the Department  cf Agriculture, which had never ceased in its efforts to better conditions.  He felt that co-operation was absolutely necessary, and stated that the  Department was very much in favor  of its promotion.  A plea was made by the Minister  for economy in all things pertaining  to the operation of the industry. Better results could be obtained in a financial way by not paying so much attention to the packing and cutting  down expenses in that direction. He  advocated the growing of other produce besides'fruit on fruit farms, and  the others. He reported- that thtv'  movement was making substantial  progress in the Okanagan, and was  gradually making for; better cohdit-  ionsthroughbut the province. He paid-  tribute to the department of agriculture, the Deputy Minister and Canadian Pacific Railway, all of whom had  rendered very great assistance in the  various ways towards promoting the  co-operative scheme. At present, he  did not think . it practicable for the,  producers to act as their own, salesmen, but it. should be quite possible  to eliminate the profits of the wholesalers and jobbers by sending goods  direct to the retailers.  Causes of Depression  Mr. Robertson cited two reasons'  which he accounted for the depression in the fruit growing industry  last year from a financial view point.  First of all, of course, the war and  its susequont uncertain financial conditions had nat.urally been, detrimental. The second cause wr.s the prevalence of reports during the summer  that large'crops were being harvested  everywhere, and that the. prices  would consequently be very low.  The. United States lately had' been  very succcessful with its apple business. The reason for this was simply  because the farmers on the other sids  of the line were enterprising and  had used better business methods in  marketing their produce. Columbia  fruit, however, was vastly superior to  American, and if similar methods to  those employed in the United States  were adopted in British Columbia  there should be little difficulty in  checking all competition.  As to the results gained by the  United Growers, Mr. Robertson said  that the cost of various commodities  such as box material, had been considerably reduced and that not a single official complaint had been received from consumers in regard to  the goods supplied in speaking of  the -likelihood of more trade being  carried on with the Antipodes, he  mentioned the fact that British Columbia apples had proved themselves  trade in fruit could be developed with  the United Kingdom by shipping  through the Panama Canal. Efforts  were being made to secure a higher  rate of .taxation on fruit coming from  the United States, which would naturally tend to check all competition  coming from that quarter.  The fruit growers of the province  had received, large loans of'money  from the government, but when <it  could be proved that the money had  been used in the nest possible way  to foster'the' industry and had been  found inadequate, then the growers  were perfectly justified in asking for  further assistance. .As in the past  years, it had always been the aim of  the provincial government' to do all  in its power to' foster the industry in  every way possible.  At the conclusion of the address,  which was received very enthusiastically by the Association, a, general  discussion took place, chiefly concerning the co-operative work of the Salmon Arm fruit growers.  The other business transacted included the resolutions reported by the  resolutions committee; the amendment to objects of' the Association,  and tile election of directors for 1915  The evening'session opened shortly after 8 o'clock, the first hour being taken up with the discussion of a  few minor points. Then Mr. W. E.  Scott, Deputy Minister of Agriculture  addressed the meeting. He pointed  out that the prices this season  had been very unsatisfactory. Per  haps financial conditions were partly  responsible, but the principal reason  was the slumping of fruit from.the  United States. The only protection  for this was by raising the tariff, representation to this effect had of  course, already been made to Ottawa  by the fruitgrowers, who could be assured that the provincial government  were supporting them.  Mr. Scott pointed out the increase  in the tariff was not the only way  to insure fruitgrowers getting a good  price for their produce. The cost of  production must be lessened, they  must economise, and he strongly advised them to patronize their own cooperative associations-and.not to underrate the value of advertising. With  regard to exhibits this year, all efforts of the provincial government  would be centred on their exhibition  at the Panama Exposition. The C.  P. R .had agreed to house the exhibit in their own building and to give  all the assistance possible in making  it a success.  The following directors wore then  elected: Victoria, W. F. Somers;  Duncan-Nanaimo, R; M. Palmer;  Lower Mainland (south of the' Fraser) George I. Thornton; Lower Mainland (north of the Fraser) Mission  and East) F. M. Shook; Lower Mainland (north of the Fraser, west of  Mission), J. C. Metcalfe; Salmon Ann  Armstrong, F. D. Nicholson; Vernon-  Coldstreain, \V. C. Ricardo; Okanagan Centre-North Kelowna, J. E.

Norman; Creston and East Kootenay,  James Compton; Gulf Island, Alex  Law; Lytton to Kamloops (including  WestLillooett) C. E. Barnes; Peach-  land-Westluink.J. L. Vicary.  . The executive were re-elected unanimously, as follows:  W. C. Ricardo, president; Thomas  Abriel, vice-president; F. D. Nicholson, R. M. Palmer, J as. Rooke, W. S.  Foggo, Hon. Price Ellison, Minister  of Agriculture, W. E. Scott, Deputy  Minister of Agriculture, ex-olficio; R.  M.  Winslow.  secretary.  At the afternoon session of Tuesday's convention" a report containing  much, valuable data was read by the  markets commissioner, Mr. J. Forsyth Smith, on his activities during  the past year in the Prairie Provinces  and elsewhere, with a view to stimulating- and promoting trade in British  Columbia fruit.  Mr. Forsyth Smith pointed out the  different requirements of the Eastern  markets, especially of Toronto and  Montreal. The favorites were generally of prime favor and possessing  long preserving qualities. A larger  shipment of peaches could have been  disposed of had the British Columbia  growers been aware of the fact.  In the shipment;of rliubarb, competition was found chiefly from Walla  Walla, where the carloads were mixed  with other vegetables. In strawberries there was a-much-smaller market I  as there was not so much preserving done as in former years. Wherever they were, .received, however,  they were appreciated, and there  would probably be a greater demand  for them next year.  Trade in apricots and cherries was  somewhat confused last year, and  more advertising was recommended.  There was an over-supply of tomatoes  which accounted for a considerable  slump in the price. Very little sentiment was ever expressed in the  wholesale business, but what there  had . been was favorable to British  Columbia.  In regard to obtaining publicity  for British Columbia fruit, the commissioner advised the appointment  of salesmen who would carry samples  of the various fruits and give lectures  wherever they went. The plan,  while it seemed somewhat radical,  was operated last year" with great  success. Various circulars were being distributed but practical demonstration was much more effective and  had been proved more desirable.  PAOIFTO  FISH ERIES  A Montreal-news item says.that it  is believed in that city that there will  be great expansion in the fishing industry on tho Pacific coast of Canada.1 It 'is being "stimulated to some  extent by the closing of the North  Sea,'but the belief is expressed, by  those whose opportunities for judging are of the best, that even after  the war the development will go, on.  The item goes on to say:  Three Canadian express refrigerator cars, carrying 00,000 pounds���������  thirty tons���������of prime halibut taken  from the waters of the Pacific Ocean  off Prince Rupert, B. C, passed the  city en routo for St. John, N. B.,  where the fish is tp.be shipped by SS.  Scandinavian to the British market.  A trial"shipment of 20,000 pounds of  halibut was made up in Prince Rupert last month and when opened up  in England was found to be in first  class -.condition, leading to the placing of other large orders. It is only  since the completion of the Grand  Trunk Pacific transcontinental lino  a few months ago that Prince Rupert  iish has been on sale in Eastern Canada and the United States. Remarkable catches arc being -made by the  fleet, in the Ncyth Pacific, i,llshing  grounds, declared to be the richest  in' the world, and the fish is at once  placed in ice and given a quick run  over tho Grand Trunk Pacific.

Fish every Thursday  Department, of Education and Agriculture to Co-operate in Tho New  Course of instruction���������Summer  Course Siicco/isi'ii".  , For some time past the Department  of Education has been making investigations and formulating plans  preparatory to the inaugurating of  agricultural instruction in the public  and high schools of the Province.  Following the appointment of a  Director of Elementary Agricultural  Education, a special course of instruction in agriculture and school gardening was arranged under his direction,  and, with the assistance of a number  of' instructors, from the department  of Agriculture, was successfully carried out. Teachers from all parts of  the Province attended this spocjal  summer course, 175 being registered in- it, tho largest class of summer  studonts in agriculture ever assembled in Canada. flurining concurrently with this course in rural science, manual training and manual  arts, art and music, "each of which  attracted largo,'classes of studonts  teachers, the total attendance registered being in the neighborhood  of, GOO;  The splendid success which attended this first Summer school for tho  teachers in British Columbia has led  the Department of Education to decide to' continue it during the coming  summer. For those who completed  last year's course in rural science  and school gardening a second and  more advanced course will-be given  leading to a special diploma in elementary agriculture, which will entitle-the holder to a special bonus in  connection with' the teaching of that  subject in the public schools of the  Province. A preliminary or first-  year course will- also"be given for'  teachers who did not attend last  year.  Agriculture in School Couitse  The Department of Education has  also decided to include agriculture  as an optional subject in the high  schools, thereby' making it possible  for boys to-pursue this branch of  study after leaving the public school.  Competent teachers, with special  qualifications as ��������� instructors in tlie  various branches of agriculture, will  be appointed in these high schools,  which will"' be chosen from those  schools-situated in the best agricultural districts.. . These agricultural  specialists, "in addition to teaching  agriculture proper, will also assist in  teaching * of some of: the regular  science work of the high school, especially the biological part. -They  will also spend a part of each week  supervising "the work in elementary  agriculture' arid*"school gardening "in  the public,schools of'the districts or  municipalities .".in which the "high  schools are situated.' ��������� 'Extension classes in agriculture will-be opened in  these1 particular high schools' for  boys and young men who are not regular students in the high school and  who can give only- a portion cf their  time to such studies. These classes  will be held either during the.day or  in the evening, as may. be found convenient or desirable. k  In addition to- the organizing of  elementary agriculture, nature study  and school' gardening,. the- Director��������� is  giving "his attention to the general  improvement of school grounds. ' As  a rule, the school grounds throughout  the Province are not in keeping with  the' school buildings;. which certainly are scorid to hone in,the'Dominion  of Canada..' In many cases the  grounds "are-too' small or. are in' such  a rough state as to be'of. little use for.  recreation'' or. for study. .Some of  these-grounds need draining, many  grading and leveling, practically all  need- planting ' and beautiiication..  Hereafter the school grounds.and gar  dens-will be regarded as part of the  school equipment, and grants'will;be  made towards their improvement and  upkeep." . These', departmental- grants  will be made-consequent upon grants  for a similar purpose being made by  the' school boards ' themselves. To  help in - this,.,..plans -are-now under  way for~'the,' establishing- of a Provincial nursery, where suitable trees'and  ornamental shrubs, as well as many  kinds of herbaceous.,perennial flowers will be grown' from 'seed for distribution  to  schools throughout the  ���������province.  Benefits of Proposals  There can be no doubt as to the  many" benefits and the far-reaching  influences that are bound to result  from the carrying out of- such an  advanced policy in education and in  school improvement. Anything and  everything that nia'ies for tho better  training of children, ai-d that iits  them to take their place in the world  of affairs as well as of letters is  bound to- be a good investment at  the present time in-this provine'..  Through the introduction of agriculture in the course of stiidy for boys  -and girls in our public schools, the  Department of Education has begun  that which cannot but produce an  awakening of interest amongst the  young people of the Province in sci  entitle agriculture. If tills interest'  can be -fostered and mantiained by  the combined efforts of the Department of. Education, the Department,  of Agriculture, with its various branches for instruction and demonstration, and through the Provincial College of Agriculture, with its facilities  for scientific instruction and agricultural research, it will not be long until British Columbia will be in possession of the greatest bulwark of  strength and stability of which any  nation can boast���������a prosperous and  contented   rural   population.

'  Women's Institutes  Tho convention of Women's Institutes of Ontario mut recently in Toronto. City people were astonished  to learn how largo was the number  of delegates and how orderly and  businesslike were-their meetings.  The women of- Ontario were the  first people in the Province' to see  that if farming was to revive conditions in the rural districts must  be improved. Since that the organization has spread throughout Canada. It has done much te . make  life less difficult and happier in rural''  districts. The women themselves  have come together and discussed  matters of household management.  They have learned from each other  how to do their work better and  more'Cjuickly. They vie with each  other in the improvement of their  homes and gardens.  Through the instrumentality of  the Institutes rural schoolhouses  have been improved and libraries established. It may be that in some  districts less has been done than enthusiastic, leaders could have wished  but, on the whole, life has been awak  ened and a spirit of helpful co-operation, aroused among the women.  This has been turned to good account since the outbreak of the war.  Work has been done 'for the relief  of the .Belgians,, for the Red- Cross  Society, and for the Patriotic fund  that could not have been accomplished unless' an organization had existed. ' .,  There can be no question that Women's Institutes will .continue to  prosper.      -There is  so  much- ;that  c.Mintry women can do to bring a-  bout prosperity, happiness nnd goodness in their * districts and, in this  way, to the nation. The day of  isolation and drudgery has passed  for the country woman. There will  be hard work but it will be carried  on more intelligently and with many  more conveniences. Women will  know one another and take an interest in each other's wefare. They  will learn to make more of the rcsour  ces they have. Their gardens will  be more productive, their poultry  .better cared for. More important  than all, their homes will be hap-  p er and their children better trained and taught. The women of the -  Institutes realize that home-making  is the chief business of women and  that nothing connected with it is of  l'ttle importance. .In this tho chief  value of the organization lies.  Independence  How can one preserve the spirit,  of independence in hard times is a  problem which faces ninny women  n our own city this winter. It con  only be done by refusing to take assistance unless it is absolutely necessary. As long as wood can be had  for th.e labor of preparing if. no one-  should ask for fuel. If fish can ho  caught and there is anyone avIio has  time to go for them,the table should  not be without them. Whatever  talent the piother or any member of  the family may have should, if possible, be turned to���������account before,  assistance is sought.  Everyone who buys a home-made  article or gives an order for work  of any, kind is helping to preserve  good citizenship". The man or boy  or woman who can find work of, any  kind to do, even if it is hard or disagreeable, should on no'account become  .dependable! ���������"*'������������������*"-  The growth o.f the pauper, spirit  is the evil to be fought against; in '  such times as these! .That the -charitable societies see that this canker  has already begun to destroy the  usefulness of some of our people is(  a cause, of grave apprehension. There  are girls who would rather remain  idle at home than accept low wages.  Hundreds of men are content to leave  their gardens uncultivated while they  are waiting for employment. As  many women neglect fo use their  spare hours in making some .-article  which they. could sell, perhaps for  only a small sum, but one that would  help  to  keep things going.   ,, ' -  A "deputation waited upon tho  Victoria council at its last meeting  asking for more money for publicity  purposes for the .coming year.  ���������"PI m  lAINTING* PROTECTS  YOUR HOUSE!
