' J-fc  was informed by the council, that at  the present the state of finances wove  such that the treasury would not permit any grant at present.  However the indemnity was about,  due the reeve and his councillors and  here is what they did. No they did  not give it all, but each one whacked  u-p $10.00, making in all $50; AND  promised that the matter of a grant  would be placed before tire new council.  ��������� Mr. Verchere thanked them all and  severally and then took his departure  quite gratified.

Now it is not tho  writer's intention to advocate doing  away with the middleman, as we arc.  all  well  aware  that  tlie  middlemen  are a   necessary   medium     where     a  large tonnage is concerned.. ' But in  fairness to the consumer'and to the  j grower's interests as well, if is up.to  > the  fruit-growers, ot  the districts  to  figure  their cost of  production at a  minimum  calculation and     on    that  basis demand a price that will return  a fair profit for themselves and that  will "also   be  low  enough  to  attract  the consumer and thereby move the  commodity   as   quickly   as   possible.  The time has now arrived when it  is not a  question of  how  much  Ave  must ask per crate but what is the  least   that   we  can sell  a  crate  for.  The result of next year's marketing  will  be  determined  by  the despatch  of distribution.    Let us not lose sight  of  the  fact,  that  the  consumer  has  to  pay all   the  pipers   and  that  the  ordinary consumer on    the    prairie  points that will be supplied from the  cars, has a very intelligent viewpoint  oil economy as it affects himself.

A. BATHS, -       - Editor and Proprietor  Jam Making hi British Columbia  . In view-of the interest being taken-by the  Confectionary trade in British Columbia, particularly in the fruit-growing disfrefs, in the  possibilities of the jam iiduslry.lhe following  article.specially written for the Western Canada Baker, a new journal, by Mr. 1-1. Beach,  of the King-Beach Manufacturerg Company,  Ltd., of Mission City, li. C, preset!is a concrete  view of the position.  Besides his  several  years experience of tlie  industry in Britsh Columba. Mr. Beach-was for  many years connected with the Avell-knoAvn  Old Country jam-manufacturing firm of Beach  &  Sons, Evesham, England.  The earliest, most successful, permanent  and laregst industries of the world have been  .founded on the principles of utilizing the products grown from the earth. The necessity  of scoring Avheat was known before the days of  the Pharoahs, and now the demand for fruits,  out of season, has made fruit preserving a necessary industry, and one of vital importance to  all civilized nations. Certain districts' are  more suitable for the production of fruit and  other places where fruit cannot be groAvn,  yield cereals, therefore the interchange of  these products is carried on to the benefit of  all parties. The great increase, of population  in the Prairie Provinces* coupled Avith the need  of fruit all the year round, has made the fruit  groAving industry of British Columbia of vast  importance, and has placed the jam-making  industry on a sound basis, leaving no doubt as  to its permanency and successful future..  The consumption of fruit has groAvn enormously during the last tAventy-hve years. At  one time fruit Avas looked upon as a luxury  but at the present time it is looked upon as a  necessity and has become a vital element for  the sustenance of all people iioav that physicians have shown that fruit is one of the natural foods of man.  The fruit-groAving industry of British Columbia, now practically in its infancy, will become one of the largest and most important  undertakings in this Provnce and will in time  be looked upon as one of the chief mainstays  of die allied trades.  One of the most important assets of our  Province is the variable climate to be found in  different parts, which makes it possible to cultivate a large variety of fruits. For example,  the Fraser Valley aiid Gordon Head districts  are splendidly suited for the production of Jill  kinds of small fruits Avherease the Okanagan  and surrounding valleys are well noted for  their fine flavored apricots, peaches and apples.  Unfortunately it sems a rule that the pioneers of most industries do not reap their just  reAvards, and this seems the case largely with  the fruit-preserving industry of British Columbia.  There have been very many canning and  jam-manufacturing companies promoted that  have not been successful. The reasons for  these failures are numerous, and I Avill deal  with a feAv of the most important factors in  collection   with  jam manufacturing.  Several jam factories have been established  in districts to tempt people to take up land  with the idea of fruit farming and have failed  because they could not obtain enough fruit  from the feAv people Avho went into lhe district  which in some cases was not at all suitable  for fruit growing. Other companies have gone  into districts where only a few varieties,-of  fruit Avere grown and could not find a ready  market for the goods they manufactured as  they could not supply the wholesale trade with  a full line of jams. . But the principal cause of  non-success of the majority of the factories  was that those engaged in same tried to make  jam on a commercial basis from recipes  "handed down .from their ancestors."  One of the greatest troubles the Canadian  jam manufacturer has to contend with is the  large amount of cheap jam, attractively put up,  that is exported, or I should say "dumped" on  this market from England. The majority of  these gdods are labelled "made from fresh  English fruit Avith pure sugar." The writer  avIio has had a Avide experience in the Jam  trade in England is Avell. aware that a large  amount of this jam is made from foreign fruit  imported into England from Holland, France  and Spain and that sugar used in manufacturing came principally from Germany and  Austria before the Avar broke cut. Since the  war started these supplies have been stopped  therefore the English jam manufacturer has  FmmM*mmrniMKmB&mm&Gmmffl  J. H. JONES  FuRercil Director  Furnisher of Funeral Supplies  Phone Connection. Mission City  m������mBm������ztBiWmmmmmBinFm  had to use, in many cases, unrefined sugar, as  they could not afford to purchase refined sugar  for the jam market of Canada. These English jams have been allowed Info this country  as English manufacture, and, in my opinion,  ought not to be alloAved to be imported under  the preference tariff, as practically all of tlie  contents and packages Avere made in foreign  countries which, if bought separately, for a  Canadian jam manufacturer, would not be al-  loAved into this country under the preference  tariff, f am prepared to state that, in some  instances the exporters escape the higher foreign rate of duty by over-estimating the overhead, manufacturing and packing charges.  The successful manufacturing of jam is a  skilled trade that, unfortunately, many people  think is a very, easy matter when they begin  to manufacture. When there is a glut of fruit  in a district, the popular remark generally  made by the fruit-grower is that "we must  , have a cannery or jam factory to save all  this Avaste, and so a jam factory is subscribed  for. All the fruit the shareholders do not  require is sent, into the factory, wheiher suitable or not,, Avith the resu'lt.that a large a-  mount of unsaleable, badly-made jam is put  on the market, to be sold at far less than cost.  I believe the Provincial Government have  a scheme, in connection with their Agricultural Aid Act, for aiding or financing canneries  and jam factories. This I regard as a move  quite in the wrong direction, and my principal  reason for tliis remark is that there is not  enough demand for Canadian-made jam yet,  and that there are quite enough factories to  deal successfully with all the jam Ave shall need  for some years. It Avould be far better if the  Government would impose extra duties on foreign jams, and there Avould then, I am sure,  be quite enough people with capital and enterprise to go properly into canning and jam-  making Avithout asking for state aid. Jam  manufacturing on a small scale.cannot be .successful, for there is not the demand for jam  in this province, and it Avould be impossible for  the small manufacturer to ship his goods at a  low freight rate to tlie prairies as he would  not make enough in a season for half a carload,  and would purchase sugar and other supplies  in the same unfavourable manner.  It is not generally known that beet sugar,  if properly refined, is quite as suitable for  manufacturing all kinds of candies, jams and  other manufactured goods which contain sugar, which is also used in all English candies,  chocolate and biscuits.  ,It seems unfortunate that no proper efforts  have been made in this country to encourage  the growing of the sugar-beet and establishing '  factories for the    production    of    Canadian-  groAvn sugar.  Beet-sugar growing has at last been taken up  by the English Government, Avho for many  years refused to do anything to help this important industry, and I think the English Government must now very much regret that they  took no steps to encourage sugar production,  as, owing to the conditions of Avar that exist,  they had at the commencement of hostilities  to buy up practically the visible supply of the  whole world. The lower districts of the Fraser Valley would be extremely suitable for  growing sugar-beet, judging from different  varieties of a similar vegetable family of which  1 have seen samples grown in this district.  Finally, 1 would be glad if English and Eastern Canadian people now resident in the Canadian West, -would--consider that it is just as  good "form" to purchase goods manufactured  in British Columbia as those made in England and the East, and I also think they would  sIioav far more intelligence in so doing, a s  they would be helping to build up the industries of the country that supports them, and  they would also receive a far better value for  their money and feel that that money would  be directly distributed among the people of the  Province.  It is quite pathetic to go round some of the  large grocery stores in Vancouver and read  such notices as "Old Country siscuits," "Old  Country Jam." "Old-Country Chocolates," I  suppose that the taste of these Old-Country  goods cures homesickness and that the people  who ask always for them are rea-lly out here  for their health?  To those who always use English Jam. I  would say, consult your store-keeper and ask  lnm for a good brand of B.C.-made jam, for I  believe that one package would convert them  to using only B.C. goods. And the same applies to those who use jams in the goods they  manufacture.  >. --N ���������/"-������ *-**���������'  ABBOTSFORD   DISTRICT BOARD OF   TRADE  i-%  President, Hope Alanson   Secretary, N.

But the result was  that a few hundred of the best of the  car sold at the price and after being  held until practically unsaleable, tho  remainder were jobbed off at $1.00  per crate.

Far bc.it from making any  statement meant to convey that im-  ���������pression. The idea is merely to show-  in as comprehensive way as possible  the possibility 'of producing with a  fair, margin of profit, rasps at $1.00  nett.  As it takes two yean- after planting  to realize on a patch of raspberries,  wo have figured the two years expenses asr'the initial investment, 'ind  have added interest at. S per cent, per  annum for a period of 5 years. We  chose 5 years as being the life of tho  ordinary patch but. have seen excellent stands of canes that have crop-  pod for seven and eight seasons. Wo  havo figured .the land at $-100 por  acre, which is an average price for  land .in the Hatzic districts before being set out in fruit. Interest, at, 8  per cent has been added- for the two  years that.the patch is maturing and  for the 5 cropping years. All labour  such as preparing land, cultivating,  hoeing, putting in posts, wiring, etc.,  has ' been charged up at prevailing  prices. We do not pretend to be accurate down to a cent on some of the  items but have given as fair a figure  as possible from a practical standpoint. It is also.quite possible that  conditions in other districts 'would  not apply to those existant in the  Hatzic  district.

This is equal to $1.11.35 per acrp and  considering that in addition the grower receives good interest, on hi'- initial  investment and on his land the en-  tiro period, then is it not apparent  that there U a fair profit in raspberries at $.1.50 nett.  ilatzicncws items  iUOUIl  co-o_  (hri  '>���������-. <--.  :d  !o ucr.rly .$100,000,00.  lis :;���������'���������'>',000,000 came from  )OL":-.'ivo  societies.

The above sum is actually paid out  before any returns are received insofar as raspberries are concerned.  Some growers intercrop the first  year with vegetables or field roots.  This is a good plan as it means, better cultivation for the canes and the  profit derived from the crop so planted, should at least pay the first  year's interest on the land.
