Vol. XXV., No. 16.  Abbotsford, B. C, Friday, February .16, 1923.  $1.00 Per Annum.  !=__  APPEALS AGAINST  .    SUMAS ASSESSMENT  The Sumas Court of Revision  made some caustic remarks on . the  Provincial assessment of Huntingdon Townsite. This area is assessed by the municipality for, school  purpdses and the Provincial Assess-  ment Roll is taken as the basis of  taxation,. Mr. M. Murphy appealed  against the assessment of his1, property, showing that it was above'-market value. It was stated to the Court  tha.t appeals- had been made against  the Provincial assessment- unsuccessfully, yet it was shown that in two  or three instances the 192? assessment had been reduced.- Two of  these instances' were property owned ,by Howay and Reid, one block  being  changed "from.f$600  to..$100,  ' - w    -~        -    . ."������ .W^JM"1 .J������^������v^l__^>--_-_>'"*,������-*"'. .. .  though properties on DotriT Bides remained the same. The other was  low.ered to $250, without any-alteration in the adjoining assessment.  One block on the townsite .was assessed at $8,000 ground value, apart  from improvements���������that of Howay  and Reid stood at $100. The council did not think, there was this  much difference in Huntingdon  ground values, though the location  , might be different. Mr. Murphy's  block was' reduced io $300 for - land  and $5000 for improvements.  The appeal of the B. C. E. Ry.' for  a reduction- in the valuation of Vedder Mountain Substation was . not  allowed, as the figure assessed was  in accordance with their own 1920  valuation.. .      ���������  Several minor appeals were adjusted- by the Court, chiefly instances' of excess acreage. The assessment roll stands practically th������_  same as that of last year.  REV. ROSS TO CONDUCT  ANNIVERSARY SERVICE  Rev. A.

Spring, Mrs'. W. Roberts,  Mrs.' M. McMillan, and by right of  office, Mrs..A. Taylor and Mr. J.  Gamble.'  The meeting was well attended,  and -much  business' accomplished.  EXPLOSION   CAUSES  MINOR INJURIES  The hot water-.colls in the kitchen  range at the residence of Dr. T A.  Swift exploded on Monday morning,  wrecking the stove, and windows,  and damaging the partition.- The accident occurred just after the fire  had been lit', the hot coals from  which all but set the place on fire.  No one was seriously injured although little Betty Swift received  severe burns and cuts. Dr. and  Mrs. Swift also received minor burns  from extinguishing the. fire.  POPLAR LOCALS  ���������On Friday evening, Feb. 2nd, the  Abbotsford and District Board of  Trade came out to Poplar in sleighs  and attended the monthly meeting of the Poplar v Community Association. The Abbotsford Brass Band  were in attendance and gave musical selections. Songs were given by  Mrs. M. Smith and the Misses Ambrose. Step dances were very creditably given by Bhiliaa Gauthier, a  little lad of twelve years, who delighted  the audience.  Mr. F. J. R. Whitchelo, president  of the Board of Trade spoke on be-  half of that association and explained the alms and objects of the Board,  particularly mentioning that It ie the  Boards' desire this year to embrase  the outlying districts.  Mr. N. Hill, also spoke, along the  lines of co-operation and Its commercial benefits. He also congratulated Ponlar in having made a move  in- the right direction.  Mr. James McGowan greatly a-  muaed the crowd with hia Scotch wit  and verse, and he also passed the  hat around and collected the sum of  $2fi.00 to start a piano fund, which  wan very much appreciated.  Refreshments were served by the  ladles of the community, and the  evening ended with dancing. Lnter  everyone retired to their homes feel-  Inc that all had had a most enjov-  nV������ evening and the Community  Association has promised to give the  Bonrft of Trade their entire support  in thefuture.  A Women's Institute has been organized in Huntingdon, with Mrs.  E. W. Wlneon as''president. The  vice-president include, Mrs. L. Curtis, Mrs. M. Murphy .ami Mrs. C. Yar-  ���������wbd.. "Mrs._ Slmohds was elected as  "secretary-treasurer,,' Mrs. Fear.i.  president of the .Mt. Lehman Institute was present and a very pleasant  and profitable afternoon was enjoy-'  ed.  The Sumas Council now "faces the  necessity of building new roads foi  farmers who will'settle on the tracks  of land reclaimed by the government,  in the newly dyked area, during the  coming year. For the purpose of  considering this important matter  Hon. E. D. Barrow, accompanied by  Mr. Sinclair and Mr. Davis, officials  of the Sumas, , dyking scheme, attended the last meeting of the  Sumas'Council, and with the farmers  and their . advisory ' board discussed  the question.  Reeve Atkinson explained that'the  Municipal' revenue was only available for the maintenance work, and  that It was impossible to have funds  for building new roads. Hon. E. D.  Barrow was. of the-opinion that some  assistance should be given in this  regard and promised .to secure definite, action from the department' of  public works.       ���������:  . The advisability of having all the  new. roads-which -may be built to  connect up with';the main trunk  highway was , emphasized by Mr.  Sinclair, the engineer. - The changing'of the interprovincal ��������� highway  through the municipality, in an easterly direction was also 'discussed'.  Matsqui Council  WEQBEB HAPPILY  Cupid 'Scores Again  The Matsqui council court of revision held at Mt. Lehman gave a  sympathetic hearing to its appelants  on Thursday, while .making very  little change on the assessment roll.  The owners of the. land outside  the dyke, where the ' flooding was  long and certain, complained that  the valuation of this property ' was1  too high, and'-were relieved by the  court, to their satisfaction, $15 per  iicre being the. corrected assessment.  The Matsqui Ratepayers' Association sent a deputation petitioning  for a 10 per cent, reduction in the  values attached to all lands in the  dyked area. The court could- not assent to this, but promised to make  a reduction In the rate for this year  of two mills, which would have the  same result.  I A new assessment for -the whole  municipality was' promised for next  year, as values- have-' changed sincn  the last field revision was made.  ; The court stated that the rate tor  general purposes of this year would  be 10 mills Instead of 12.  , In the council meeting that fol -  lowed ,a resolution was1 passed requesting' that all, indigent patients  In the municipality be treated at the  local hospital, as the bills due to city  hospitals were , becoming burden-,  some.  ' Mr. W. Fox of Clayburn was a-visitor, in town recently.  The- whist drive and dance given  last Friday evening, by the Mt. Leh-  mans Women's Institute was a very  successful affair. , The attendance  was large and a most enjoyaMa time  spent. Music was rendered by the  Abbotsford four piece orchestra.  Miss Law who is the house guest  of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. McCallum Is  rrenewing oldj ��������� friendships- in this  and _ other neighborhoods.  The Mt. , Lehman Potato Growers'  Association' are looking ' forward to  the meeting in the Orange' Hall on  Tuesday evening, Feb. 13 when Mr.  Tice, a noted potato expert, will  give an  address.  Mrs. Charles Coghlan has ��������� been  visiting relatives and friends here.  Mr. and Mrs. Coghlan reside id the  Yukon.  ��������� Mr. Cartrlght has bought the  property formerly occupied by Mr.  and Mrs. E. Pierce and ie now in  possession.  ��������� The Dennison High School was  not in session on Monday and Tuesday owing to.the illness of the prln*  cipal, Mr. R. G. Dunbar.  The Women's Institute will me .  on Wednesday, Feb. 14, '- in the  Memorial Hall. On the docket will  be the reports of the Valpntlne  whist drive and dance and of- tho  directors regarding the 1923 pro1-  gramme.  D ALA WR AK���������N YSTORIA K  At the Presbyterian Manse on Saturday afternoon, Rev. W. Robertson  officiated at the wedding of Mr. San  Dalawrak and Miss Docia Yystpriak,  both of Vancouver. Mr. John Dalawrak and Mrs. John Dalawrak acted as witnesses.  The bride l5oked charming in a  gown of white satin, with veil and  orange blossoms, and carried a bouquet of pink carnations. The happy  couple have only been a short time  in Canada, coming from Austria.  They will take up residence in Vancouver.  BANDITS HELD UP  THREE CHINAMEN  TEN MILLS IS RATE  FOR PRESENT YEAR  Heard in one.of the stores in Abbotsford���������  Lady: "Why, sugar' Is going up,  again! . But can you tell- me the  name of anything that has gone  down recently?" .  Merchant: "Yes, . madam, the  barometer."  Through economical and efficient  administration, Matsqui municipality is enjoying financial prosperlty  to such an extent that the rate of  taxation has been lowered from 12  mills to 10.mills for the present year.  At the court of revision, a delegation from the Ratepayers' Associa-  ���������ton asked for a ten per cent, reduction In the assessment In the dyked  areas. The Council did not consent  to this request, believing that a reassessment of the whole municipality  would be be necessary, and the above  rate was decided upon.  SECRETARY    RESIGNS  Secretary Carr of the Matsqui  School Board has resigned his office and the trustees are looking for  a new secretary. The question of  salary is the cause. .  A card game in which S. Long and  two other Orientals were taking  part, was rudely interrupted Sundaj.  night when two bandits, fully armod,  held them up and later decamped  with $715 in cash. Long operates - a  cafe in the town and was seated in  the rear section when the robbers  walked through the door. One of  the visitors backed the Orientals up  against the wall while the other  stood guard over the door. No  masks were worn, and as a result  the-provincial police have a good description of the men, who at first  headed towards New Westminster.  In view of the close proximity of the  international boundary, it is believed, however, that the men worked  around the town and crossed into  American territory near Sumas.  All police stations, both municipal and provincial, were immediately notified of the' affair together  wth a good description of the men  involved.

CO-OPERATION  Co-operation Is very much .. to  the fore just now since Mr. .Aaron  Saplro has elucidated the meaning  of It us applied to the famous system of California. Unquestionably  California has got results from, cooperation, but It must not be.forgotten that it is not as much -because, the  growers united as that when united  they employed the most scientific  business  methods'.  It is necessary to stress this side.  The mere uniting of growers together is,not a panacea , fori, the ills' of  the  business  they   are     engaged   In.  producers are ruined; the new people  that start up do so at peak prices  which inevitably fall and -they face  another.cycle of hard, times. The  fact that-the new co-operative ��������� that  ���������has grown out of the visit of Aaron  Baplro is adopting a broad basis all  around is one of the. arguments for  its  future.

"There  is no mystery about it, except to  those who know-nothing whatever-  and     finance.    The  there will be very little wear of the  moving parts- If they are kept properly- lubricated. This means that the  owner has the'life of his car,in' h'is  own hands. "' <  We may sum ,up    the    lubricating  problem,about as follows:  1.

British  Columbia     has'     had    quite!  enough   exhausive   experimenting   to  about business *-,_*���������������-_  prove this. ; It is the business cf- steady improvomen in -the-Amer can  flclency that is of .importance, this J exchange has been due to the collec-  the   lecturer ��������� made ..abundantly   evi  dent, as in his description of -:the  system of routing and merchandising  and his extolling the uses of advertising.  .Take. this . last ..item,   .advertising.  Mr; Sapirp. gave an . example   of the  five cent packet of raisins. "We put  up those-five-cent packets of-:   Sun-  Maid ;raisins a little over-a. year ago.'  In*the firist,year-they sold 400,000,-  000 of those, packets...   .Advertising  did it.".   In other.words, through.ad-  . '    vertising the    people of the   United  States, were induced to.form   a new.  habit,      that/, of . ���������   eating     raisins  "straight."  The  campaign  for"  this  item alone  must have  ..cost an immense sum.     But  the business man  in,the United States'   believes in. extensive  advertising;,  .the'    Canadian  business .man-,  apparently .does _iot  Mr. Sapiro says in regard to spiling-  American, apples   in   Ontario--right  under the eyes of.Ontario and-British. Columbia, .growers,   of.   course  through  the  process  of    creating  a  demand through advertising:  "If we  yell  loudlyj  you yell    louder still."  It Is cheerful'advice, .but we   may  well have our doubts as to.attaining  a superiority over the United States  In the matter of-yelling about    our  goods.    The- -whole    income    of a'  British-Columbia'" co-operative would  not begin to pay the    costs of    ad-'  vertising as it is-- - practised in    the  South.  "An alternative'Bo far as the  home market of Canada is concerned  is for... Canadians - to.. be.. -sufficiently  aliv,e.-t.o.;th'eIr..o-wn ...-.interests, to..ask  for the products' of their own coun-  ���������  try.    ���������'��������� .     ���������  The question of distribution is an-,  other thing that is vital to.-success.  But this can only be adequately directed by a very large and powerful  co-operative, otherwise though the  grower against grower competition  is (.eliminated, there still remains  competition between organizations'.  This, it should be evident, is a difficulty that,sth������. California lawyer, did  not discuss. ....Take, .for. example,  those eating . raisins again., They,  are pushed in our .markets, people  are. attracted and buy them,, but as  the housekeeper has' always a'limit  to-her spending ability, jBhe ..must  buy the imported..raisins, at .the expense of. our. hanie-grown .opphws-  There is a limit both to spending  and consuming, - and -thoughtful  people have long seen that the glowing advertisements in the magazines  and on the boardings to use oranges,  grapefruit,-lemons, raisins and, other  California fruity'have had the effect  of-putting, home-grown fruits in the  shade. People have got out of the  way of .using them.  The .experience of the past has he-  come embodied in the stock aecusa.'  tion, '.'Farmers can't co-operate."  But evidently they can, for the Fraser Valley farmers are doing it and  so .are the Cowlchan and Comox  farmers. One thing has -become  amply demonstrated -both by the successes and-.the;failures, .that a cooperative must have a trained, business manager. This has become so  evident that it is not .likely that cny  co-operative will,./.again make '.the  mistaking of .sunposng a good organizer is necessarily a good manager and appoints the man .who has  been most active In working the organization up to the po_l of business  manager. -Talking and agitating is'  one gift not .to be underestimated,  but- business management is quite  another, and it might be said entirely incompatible with:the .first.  Once more, co-operation cannot  succeed by attempting to. affect the  matter off-supply'and. demand. A cooperative .that sta'rts out to put all  independent producers out of business by cutting prices is eimply.committing both murder and suicide. It  results, in. murdering the outsider  first and the-insider next, for"thero  Is no magic by which a co-operative  that la depressing prices can make  things easier for the, member, than  for the non-member it Is .fighting.  Producers are.forced out of'.business  but when-..the. consummation- of putting up the price to what the organization was working for is re. ched-  the fruits of their ill-gotten victory  are t stolen by people crowdng. iback  Into, business, in fact, it is a thoroughly, ..vicious -policy; the-   steady'  tlv������ team .work of th������ best brains of  the City, of London.  "The .city of London.knows more  about foreign trade, shipping, and  international,.finance,than New York  and it faced and conquered the postwar .financial, crises with,-cool .pluck  and a determination to pull through  and reassert ita supremacy. When  the..pound fell to. ?3.2.0 the..City went  to. work. .. Industrial disturbances on  the one. side and an extravagant  Government on the other.made a difficult task sometimes ...seem ,hopeless,, but these, things, were rightly  recognized .as1 functional .and not organic diseases of ,the body economic  and politic.  ��������� "The pulse of England le, the American exchange, and , .the .City, is  very sensitive to the slightest variation. It realized, quickly, thai. A-  merica is a spending nation,.and had  great sums to spent; and..the .broad  results of the sound financial policy  of the City are now obvious'. Fairly  In 1920 the patient's condition seemed critical, but he has . long since  been out of danger, and Is now on  the. high road to. full recovery. These  are the fundamental facts of tho situation."  "The-dollar .value of sterling rose  4- cents to $4.6.,"., said The -Tlm&������  "This Is a remarkable - movement.  The immediaite cause of it, as of the  recent steady advance, is active A-  raerican buying, which is believed to  be connected with a - transaction of  an..exceptional, character. -Many factors, have, contributed to .the. wonder-  / The old saying'that "the proof of  (be pudding is in. the eating" is  abundantly, borne out as far as value  of stored hay Is concerned.- The long  winter months are ..the. real testing  time, of the efficiency of our methods' of growing aHd harvesting our  hay crop.  Now that we are' well started . on  our regular feeding period we are In  a position  to judge whether or  not  we .-have  been  wise  or unwise, during the past summer in    the seeding  $ad  harvesting  ��������� practises     that   we  have-followed with our hay crops. If  our mows still give promise of 'furnishing us with sufficient feed for. tho  coming months and if the condition  of our animals bears testimony to the  fact that the-fodder was    good,    v/e  have reason to  congratulate or perhaps   both,'   we may    well    examno  critically  the farming practises  that  are responsible for- the existing condition.    If the fodder is    constantly  poor, our harvesting operations may  well bear-changing.    If it  is scarce  there may be a number of- influences  lit work.    Perhaps we did not seed  down a large    enough    acreage    or  thelre  may  have  been  unfavourable  weather conditions that destroyed a  part of the crop.    If lack of fodder  is due to. either of these reasons, we  may remedy it.    In the first Instance  the obvious thing to .do would be to  seed down ,a greater acreage, whereas' in the second Instance there may  be a number, of, remedies.      Winter  killing that is beyond    our    control  can only be met by    planting some  annual hay crop to ^make up the estimated shortage. ������������������ We have,    how-,  ever, winter killing.and general-failure of-hay crops due to other reasons  that are.within our power to control  Did you ever "hold the line?" , That is hold  the telephone receiver to your elar for what seemed like hours, while someone you/had called   up  looked up'pap<_rs 6r   other    things   to answer  your enquiry?  When you are called by telephone and must  take time to loojt .lip something, it is better to  say, "I will look it up and call vou."

The-dominant.influence  ���������has been the. pursuit ', of a* -sound  financial policy. "As a distinguished  American commentator has put it,  England not only raised a larger  proportion of war costs-out of revenue than any.other ibelligerent-, but  she was the first ^cou-ntry to balance  her budget, to redeem debt, and to  .reduce taxation. ' That is true, und  it. has ^produced a. great psychological effect abroad, particularly in  America."  LUBRICATION IMPORTANT  DURING WINTER MONTHS  ,At this.time- of the .year a. little  advice on. lubrication is .particularly  pertinent. Cool . weather , brings  problems in lubrication that are not  so important when, ".the weather is  warm, and the motor car owner  must be prepared"to,-solve these or  he will be in danger, of having serious trouble.  In cold *-weather the .processes of  combustion induce the formation of  an.-,extra quantity of water. Combustion always produces some water,  but in cold weather the process is  accelerated. This..water leaks down  past the-rings and polutes the oil in  the crankcase .causing It to lose  much, of its- lubricating .quantity, to  the detriment of the parts it is supposed to protect.  ��������� As much as three ...pints of water  can. accumulate in a ��������� seven-quart  crankase.- We leave the reader to  imagine the effect on parte.moving  at high speed, and- ��������� protected . only  by such  heavily diluted  lubricant.  Such faulty lubrication will produce excessive wear of the parts that  need the protective film of oil. Cylinders, may be scored;- pistons, rings  and bearings injured.and even cracked as a consequence of neglect of frequent changing of cylinder oil. During cold -weather the oil in the  crankcase ought to be changed ieve-ry  1,000 miles.of/running,, and every  500 miles would be better.  Especially is all this true of the  new; car. . The . buying season for  closed models Is now In full swing,  and the treatment that a: new car  gets 'during Its first 1/000 miletf has  much to do with Its whole later ex-  istenco.P'orthe first. 1,000- miles  the car should not be run at a greater speed than, twenty miles per hour.  It is, not necessary to use a lighter  oil than will be used after the car Is  run In,.although this is a popular fallacy. Change the oil after 500 miles  of running and again at 1,000 miles.  . As. tiie parts of the new car wear  in, clearances are increased.just. a  tiny'bit. "After this has    accurred,  that are within .our power, to control. A very considerable part of  our failures to produce .a profitable  crop of hay is due to the planting of  insufficient or poor seed or because  we try to grow a particular hay crop  under soil or climatic conditions  that are decidedly unfavourable for  it,  We have a great abundance of difr  fereht forage plants which vary  enough in their adaptations to take  care of .mostly all soil and -climatic  conditions which we meet on the ordinary farm. In spite of this fact  we "mostly trust to Timothy and Red  Clover-Under all conditions. These  are undoubtedly two of our best  general hay crops In Eastern Canada yet If we are to secure the high-  eat yields we must recognize chat  they have limitations and try and secure the fodder plant best-suited for  our special requirements.  '. Whether our lot has been failure  or success as determined by the winter feeding of our forage it is well  worth our while to face the situation squarely and decide to profit  by. whatever the present condition of  our fodder has to .indicate to.us.���������  Experimental Farms Note.

It ie obviously    necessary, in    attempting to read.the future by-means  of any kinds of    symbols,  , whether  pjps, dots, numbers or anything else,  to fix beforehand upon some definite  meaning to be   attributed    to   each  separate symbol and to hold fast   to  this.meaning In all events.   , In the  the case of tea leaves where the symbols are    not    mere    "conventional  sign" or numbers, but actual, figures  like the pictures seen in the fire   or  those envisaged in dreams,    there is  no doubt that    the    signification of  most of'them is the result of erapyri-  cal experience.    Generations of spae-  wives have found that the recurrence  of a certain figure in, .the   cup   has  corresponded with the occurrence of  a certain event In the future.lives of  the various persons   who   have consulted   the(m;    and    this    empyrical  knowledge has  been    handed  down  from seer to seer until    a, sufficient  deposit of tradition has been formed  from which It has been .  found possible to compile a detailed list of the  most important symbols and to    attach to each a traditional meaning.

Among  the latter, coffins, clouds, crosses,  serpents, rats and mice and- some  wild beasts, hour glasses, umbrellas,  church steeples, swords and guns,  ravens, owls and monkeys are all ominous symbols.  Badger, long life and pi'osperity as  a bachelor.  Basket, an addition to the family.  Bat, fruitless journeys or tasks.  Bear, a long period of travel.  Beasts, other than those mentioned- foretell misfortune.  Birds, a lucky'sign; good new. if  flying; if at rest, a fortunate journey.  Boat, a friend will visit the consultant.

The cotripaiiy has apparently  reached a stage when it. , inight be  isaid that it has recovered - from the  Ice-storm of "'_ 917-18, when- the  lines were broken down by ice. It  will be remembered that it,was estimated at the time that a foot of  .telephone line had attached to it  enough Ice to tip the scales at ten  pounds. Naturally the poles came  down with the lines', presenting a  picture that as an ice carnival it. was  unexcelled, except .that it had the  .tragic side to it... It:.ne'cessitated-the  rebuilding -ef-4he-Hneflv->-The l6.-w-at  that time .was estimated at about  $10,000". Today the company own  a fourteen pole cable on Washington street, 4 miles of two arm poles.  48 1-2 miles of one arm poled, 2 l'-rS.  miles of side block poles and a large  number of cross arms on the B. C.  line making 132 lv-2 miles of metallic lines. During the , past' year, ^  new 125 line switchboard was  installed; and the company'can now  :claim a service that is giving E,ood  satisfaction to the 256 customer*.  During the "bu_y season this number of customers was iast year extended by 21 more phones, and this  year it may be'the same.  The lines extend from" Mission  City past Silverdale on the west:  nearly to Steeihead to the north: to.  Hatzic, Dewdney, Nicomen ��������� Island  and Deroche on .the east; on the  south side of the river, a submarine  cable being used across the Fraser,,  from Riverside to Clayburn, Matsqui  Gifford and ;Mt. Lehman.  The annual report before the ice  storm shows that there were 4.3-2  miles two arm poles, 52 1-2 miles  one'arm poles, 133 miles of metallic  lines, with 22.7 phones in use. The  next annual report shows 136 phonea  in use at the end of 1918. A. comparison since,that date will show  the progress the company has' made.  This has been done on a , new. subscribed capital of. less 'than" *?70C  and the surplus of; each year-after  paying running expenses. Many consider this a good reco'rd for tho  local company. '   "  The company gives service from 8  a. ni. to 10 p. m��������� and* is connected up  with B. C. long distance, thus giving  a service to all points in.the Fraser  Valley and the .coast cities.  "Central" appreciates your co-operation in being prompt to answer  her ring, prompt and clear In giving  name and number when calling and  in not unduly delaying ringing off  when your business is done. Practical advice along these lines are given in. advertisements that appoar  regularly in this paper from.the B.  C. Telephone Company, the co-operator of the local company to points  other than over its own linee.  A history of the company appeared in our special edition In December 1,910, where it said in part that..  The foundaton . was laid by iMessrs.'  Manley and Hunt and ran from Mission City to Hatzic, then to Cedar  Valley, than to Dewdney. When these  men moved from Mission' City 11 sub  scribers bought out the system and  incorporated a company with a capital stock of $10,000. In 1910, after  running some years there were 100  phones In operation.  The directors for the present year  are Messrs. J. A. Catherwood, J. A.  Bates, E. J. Abbott, E. J. Bond and  Sam  Smith.  . The following Is .the concluding part of the article, contributed  by%Mr. T.

O. Mansfield, "Is it possible  for the farmers to have a ' monopoly?" Ans. "Yes, 'if you can- con-  troll 100. per cent, of the commodity," It was pointed out however  that there is little danger of monopoly as the public .vould .boycott it  and bring in stuff from other places.  Mr. McFarlane, "What"percentage  pf growers are absolutely necessary  to-.look forward to a ��������� reasonable  amount of success?" Ans. "In California, the orange growers started first-with 40 per-cent- xnd now  have 78 per cent prune and apricot  growers have-88 per-cent, egg producers '98 per cent, raisin growers 95  per cent and' fig growers 92 per  cent. It depends largely on local  conditions, probably a smaller percentage could operate successfully  but he would say 75 per cent,  .would ensure a reasonable degree of  success. From what he saw in the  Okanagan Mr. Oliver thought they  would,get from between 90 and 95  per cent.  Mr. Capewell. "Have the Wa.li-  ington and Oregon Growers co-operated?" Ans'. Yes. Quest. 2. "Why  do they dump on our market then?"  Ans. You will find it was mostly,  done by independent shippers.  Question. "Does the ^independent  shpper realize more for' his oranges,  in California than the co-operative  grower?" Mr. Oliver thought not,  as a rule the Association pretty well  established the price. The method  was to sell all produce and" get an  average price which, would ultimately give better results.  Mr. L. K. Stott: "Have your cooperatives had anything to do with  fixing railway ra.es?"  Ans.  Yes.   '.  Mr. S. Ii. Auld. "Does the association handle any other fruit than  that of members?" Ans. Never!  Wrong principle, grower must c-������ioe  in and take the risk with the rest  'besides which the association vould  be violating its charter by so doing.  Mr. H. M. Ferguson: "Any advantage of one exchange over federation  of locals?," Ans. Federation forms  selling agency' which finances" pack  of locals who finance locally.  "Question re election of directors.  Ans. Election of directors adopted  to form of organization. Some times  by  election  committee.  Ans. to question by Mr. .Stacey:  As membership increases o\vi..ead  decreases.  Mr. W. L. Macken: "Do you believe in wholesaling or retailing produce?" Ans. In California it has  never been found necessary to go,,  beyond wholesalers or , jobber who  sees to it that the commodity is' offered at an attractive price to the  public.  liRASSHY���������WHroiOIlR  ' A quiet wedding was solemnized  at S_.

London  Times.   A review of the  Canadian  railway, situation. leads to the con-'  "elusion that at leaet the figures emphasise the. position of the C.P.R.  among American railways and the  responsibilities   -6f . the   office    to  which Mr. Beatty. has succeeded,���������  The Times article follows:  "Although a railway is apt to be  considered as . typical  of a  soulless  , corporation, most, people, in Canada  are aebretely, if not openly, proud of  .the steady'solvency and efficiency of  the Canadian ..Pacific.  "This pride has not been diminish-  . ed 'since :th'e. appointment as president som4 three- years ago of Mr.  Edward   Wentworth    Beatty,   K.Ci,  ptevioaslys vice-president   and  genj-  ���������erai .'counsel of the company.        , i  "Fifth m the line, which includes  the names of Lords 'Mount-Stephen  and   Strathcona,  Sir   William   Van  Home, and, Lord Shaughnessy, Mr.  Beatty is the first native  Canadian  to be president of the Canadian Pa.  cific    He was born in 1877 in Ontario and .educated at Upper Canada  , College, and the University of Toronto, and called to the bar of Ontario, upon  the completion   of   his  legal training.   His father controlled  a fleet of steamships on the Can'  adian lakes, and, thus, perhaps, thd  son had a natural interest in problems of transportation. Joining thd  leg&l department, of the company he1  rose quickly to thk position of chief  etmnsel, and at 41 years of age, by^  unanimous decision of its directors/  he, became president.    Nor did th������  choice of Mr. Beatty for so great an  office create any   surprise   in . the  country. ..Apparently he was recognized within the councils of the oom-  Eaay   as   the  natural   successor  of  ������rd Shaughnessy, and outside the  offices the judgment of the directors  was not challenged. .  Difficult Task.  ���������Ne president ot the Canadian Pacific has had a more difficult task  than that which Mr. Beatty has been  <reqotred to undertake. Through the  raah bp&inaisja of governments and  ipedple the country has built three  transs-cootinental railways where two  wooM he quite enough.  "Even before construction was  completed depression fell upon the  country^ In the crisis of the depression the war came to aggravate and  complicate the situation. Millions  were advanced to the companies, but  the relief afforded wa3 inadequate,  and the country became exasperated,  over the certain prosnect of many  more millions to follow. It is believed that the Can^ilian Pacific  could have been induced to purchase  and operate the Canadian Northern  system, and assume the federal and  provincial guarantees, but the government hesitated to accept a proposal which would so augrnaent the  Tftnfez and prestige of the pioneer  transcontinental system, and so challenge a formidable body of opinion  in the country which became steadily  more clamorous for public ownership  .and operation of the Canadian Northern and Grand Trunk Pacific and  nationalization of the Grsfffd Trunk  *ys������em in the older provinces.  Equal to the Occasion.  ������To this demand the fovernment  yielded, perhaps aa a choice between  two'evila, and when the Grand Trunk  ia finally acquired, the government  ���������will control 22,000 miles of railway  *sa agaM. 18.000 J������^������ operated by  E. W. Beatty, K.C.  President C P. R.  V i  the   Canadian   Pacific.    The    task,  therefore, to which Mr. Beatty aaa  set himself is to operate a great private railway system in competition  with a great public system, to deal  with the political problems which are  inherent   in   such   a   situation,   to  maintain a relation with the national  railways which will not produce hostile-feeling among the people, and to  prevent any ill-considered movement  towards nationalization of the,-great  ���������property which still remains ;under  private control.    Thus far few will  deny that Mr. Beatty, has displayed  the   power,    genius    and   resource  which the situation demands. He enjoys the   confidence������ of the   government and the goodwill of the people.  Never   was   the. Canadian   Pacific  operated    with    greater    efficiency,  never was a staff, distinguished for  loyalty, more devoted to the interests of the company, and never were  there   better   relations   between   a  public carrier and the shippers and  travellers who provide its revenues.  National Railway's Deficit.  "In 1919 there was a deficit on the  national   .railways    of   $50,000,000,  (12,500,000   pounds),   and   for   1920  $70,000,000 (17,500,000 pounds).    It  is manifest that   freight   and   passenger charges which would give a  living revenue to the national railways would greatly increase the surpluses of the Canadian Pacific.    It  is just as clear that proposals to reduce   the  capitalization  of  the  N������-  tionel Railways, which have considerable support, could be so applied,  as   to   impair  the   revenues   of   the  private  company.    But  Mr.  Beatty  refuses to be anxious or excited, conducts   no   underground   intrigue,  indulges in no angry criticism of "public ownership."   He believes that the  railway' poJicy   of   the   government  .an  be  tested  by results, and that,  during the time of testing the Canadian Pacific can strengthen its owjt  position only by giving service and  abstaining from unwise political activity.    It requires strength and restraint to hold  to the course which  Mr.   Beatty   is   taking.     But   these  qualities   he   has   in   a   remarkable  degree.    He will stand with any of  the  statesmen   who  have  controlled  the destinies of the pioneer transcon-  rinental   rai-way   of   Canada,   which  'or. a  pc'jerati. n  has  been  the  bul-  wark of Canadian rr.dit ������rd one of  the chisf sour. *3 of Canadian optimism  iii������J  confide.".'-:.,  i THB A3BQTSF&RD  ;r/ABB,OTSFOBB( *.'&  Always prompt, polite service at this market.
