C.  THE ABBOTSFORD POST.  Published Every Friday by Th������ Post Publishing Company  A weekly Journal devoted to.the interests of Abbotsford and district  Advertising  rates  made  known  on  application  Our  Shibboleth���������Neither  for  nor   agin1   the  Government  J.A.BATES, -       -���������      .   Editor, and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JULY 9, 1915  The growers of this district have  reason  to be dissatisfied  with  some  0  person, we shall not,say whom.  Mr. Winslow, upon whom much depends   and who has done much towards advancing co-operation among  the growers of the province has failed  to carry out the  wishes  of  the  growers   and   ask  that   the   carload  rates be made more satisfactory by  having the minimum reduced as asked by growers, most of whom in this  -  part of the province believe it would  be in the interests of the growers of  ��������� the province and an advance in the  working out of co-operation.    His expressed opinion in public and private  are known to most of the growers.  ' Then why he stands still on the very  hreshold  ���������   of       his     organization  work for years, is a mystery too deep  '    for the ordinary man who grows fruit  to understand or comprehend.  Mr. Forsyth Smith represents the  /province as markets commissioner on  the prairie.      Read what he says a-  bout "irresponsible local express shipments, etc.," and the effect they have  on the market.    Would one not    almost    suppose    that    he     believes  firmly in the carload lot shipments  Then would not a grower be sending  out berries so that they would reach  the market at two different prices. As  this creates mistrust on the part of  . tlie consumer here is somehing that  ��������� is injuring the fruit industry of this  district and perhaps other districts.  When two men, both employed by  the government of the province, ;work  ��������� ing for the same purpose���������the betterment of the fruit interest���������disagree  on such an important    matter . it is  ' time that the growers    knew    just  where they were.    The matter is too  the consumer is to buy his fruit more  than once.  In reading���������the article by the M. C.  for this province on the prairie markets, it will be noticed that while the  fruit is O. K��������� tha   the weights are  not always up to the standard. Someone is giving short measure. This is  not  the  way  to   build   up  the  fruit  trade of this province and the man  who  knowingly gives short    weight  unless it be by accident is doing himself an injury,and also the community of which he is a grower.    This  is rather a bad state of affairs indeed  and the decision of the M. C. to write  to the grower who puts    up    short  measure is taking a wise step and it  is hoped that one writing to will be  enough.  We cannot help but think that it  is a mistake rather than the intention that the weights should be found  wanting, and the work or someone  besides the grower himself.  Fruit should be good and up to the  mark inl every respect in order to  maintain the markets of the prairie  weak. - Have to force -sale of stock  i -       ���������  on' hand.  CALGARY., July    3.���������Raspberries  are   in  heavy  supply   coming  in , in  splendid  condition.    Many. hallocks,  however, are not filled, aiid, in many  cases,  the   full-'- pints  do .not, weigh  more than the'2-5.    This is particularly unfortunate in view of the effort being made to.impress consumer ! and retailer  with  the  difference  between the two packages, and    to  make a definite price difference between them.       The following are the  weights in lbs of a number of cases  weighed: Pts., 23, 21'% 21%, 20 23  20% : 2-5 qts., 20, 18%", 20, 21, 19%  17, 17%. 17%.

Practical work at practical prices  Gladys Ave.  Abbotsford  Berious to permit any delay in just  .getting to the bottom of the whole  matter.  Both are good men,and have done  much for the grower in the past, but  why this set-back���������and all growers  who have studied the markets of the  '. prairie must consider it a set-back to  . have fruit from the same district appear on the market at two different  -prices.    The carload lots will control  the prices of the.market if correctly |  managed is our belief, and why can  not matters be so arranged so that all  the growers will get all the advantage that there is in the shipping of  fruit.  If a man who represents   he government does not act in the interests  of the growers, or what they consider their interests his day of usefulness is gone.    No one individual ever  controlled all the wisdom that there  is to be found in, any particular line  of thought or business.    Every fruit-  man in the province has a very high  opinion of what Mr. Winslow thinks  in regard to the fruit interests, but  if he is right and knows he is right  why does he not come forward with  his 'very good reason' and settle the  matter for once and all.    This waiting is exasperating and may be the  ruination of the fruit    business ��������� for  a great many years to come.      The  matter should jbe settled now before  the fruit season.is gone.  MARKETS' REPORT  B. C. MARKET COMMISSIONER  .   (From the Fraser Valley Record)  If a merchant put white sand in  sugar;  a butcher gave short weight  ���������and much bone; if a saddler failed to  - stitch his harness properly so that it  ".would give away at the vital moment  if a hardware merchant sold an in-  ; ferior kind of article at a! high-price  instead of a good article; if a printer  ���������'-'���������gave a third, class paper charging   a  first-class price for it; if a slide-maker put the patch at one side of the  . hole he was supposed to mend;  if a  jeweller charged for cleaning a watch  and did not do his work right; if a  barber made 'steps' in the    hair    he  was cutting; if a miliner sold a last  year's style for the up-to-date article  if a carpenter built his house on a  poor foundation for a customer; etc.,  they would soon be found out and a  very bad impression made on their  customers.    Honesty in business    is  the motto of the successful business  man these days.apart from the 0 her  advertising that he does.    The man  of  business builds  up  his  trade  on  what he considers    sound    business  principles, as he wishes to succeed by  standing in well with his customers.  The fruit industry of this province  is just in its. infancy, and although  the best of fruit and the abundance  of it is the lot of the grower who devotes his energies in that direction;  there still remains the art of marketing it in the market that will bring  the largest returns to him. In order to do this he must put up a superior article and give full measure ii  The following taken from the July  Report of the B. C. Markets' Commissioner, Mr. J. Forsyth Smith of Calgary^ will prove interesting reading  to the fruit growers of the district  and some good pointers might be  taken from the comments:  BRANDON, MAN.���������Brandon using  about a car a week of Puyallup  raspberries. ��������� Regina brokers endeavoring to sell us Fraser Valley  berries, but impossible because we  cannot use a straight car at a time  without too much shrinkage, and Dominion Express gives no stoppage in  transit privilege as do the Great Northern and Canadian Northern. A car  of raspberries * per week in two or  three shipments works out right for  us. ,B. C. price is right and with  proper unloading privileges, we  could handle them. Raspberries who.  $3.25 to $3.50. Retailers getting 50������  a crate more. ,  MEDICINE HAT.���������B. C. raspberries on consignment to one local commission house are mostly arriving in  2-5 crate, and are selling, who. at  $2.25 to $2.75.  EDMONTON.���������The first car of Mis  sion-Hatzic raspberries arrived in  good condition.    Quoted, who. $3.75  14 "V4 oz-, 12% oz.} 12%-oz., 14 oz.;  No effort should  be spared to  give  full weight in every package, as only  thus,.-can   the  satisfaction   be   given  that builds business.    The M. C. proposes to watch this matter very closely this season, and to write personally to those shippers, who are not  filling their boxes.    In addition to the  Fraser Valley  fruit, some very fine  raspberries are coming in from Okah-  agan  points.       The use of- the  two  packages,  2-5 and pts., causes some  confusion, and, without raising at all  the price that can be Becured for the  former, tends to  depress prices for  the  latter.    The  M. C. strongly  recommends that shippers decide to remove the 2-5 crate from the list of  legal  packagos  next year.       lt  has  now been definitely proven that the  berries will reach the market satisfactorily in the larger cup, and there  is no question of its popularity with  the public.      Conditions acecting the  sales of carlot raspberries have been  bad, our own irresponsible local express shipments   consigned direct to  the  retailer,  holding    prices     down  steadily.. ' The second car, sold to Edmonton at $3 delivered,  (brokerage,  21%<J, express and ice, on 75 crate  load, 59^, net to shippers, $2.18) arrived in excellent condition, but had'  at once, to meet. the competition of  local express harries selling to the retailer at the same .or less than was  being paid by the': wholesalers for the  car.' ; In one particular instance, an I  order given by a retailer for berries  out of the car at $3.50 was cancelled  on receipt, of-a'considerable shipment  which actually came in at a lower  price by the same train from one of  the growers shipping in the car. This  sort of thing is very decidedly    not  good business   and the wholesalers,  who have had,, as a result, to drop  prices, from  $3.50 to cost price,  $3,  and finally  to job  as low as  $1.50  have good reason for dissatisfaction.  In fact, it will be difficult to place another car with them at all. The third  car was sold to Moose-Jaw at $2.60  delivered.    The fourth car was placed in Calgary at $2.65, and has to  be sold at $3 to give a margin. It is  naturally moving slowly in the face  of local express competition at $2.50.  The fifth car goes to Regina or Saskatoon at $2.50 delivered.  President, Chas. Hill-Tout   Secretary, S. A. Morley  of Abbotsford, B. C.

An Interview With His Honor the  Lieutenant-Governor Barnard, the  Chairman of Provincial Branch of  Tlie Fund.  In relation to its operations in British Columbia His Honor Lieutenant  Governor Barnard, chairman of the  provincial branch of the Canadian Patriotic Fund upon being interviewed  said:,  The fund was organized shortly after the war broke out, at the instance  of His Royal Highness the Duke of  Connought, Governor-General, the objects being set forth in an appeal  by His Royal Highness to create a  fund,for the relief of the volunteered  for active service at home and a-  broad. ���������  -,. In this province a provincial  branch was organized and an active  campaign for the collection of funds  v/as commenced. Branches were  formed throughout the Province with  collecting and relief committees.  province collect within  its boundaries sufficient to furnish its, proportion  of the amount required to meet the  demands of the dependents of those  volunteering from the Province.  In this respect    British    Columbia  has so far'been successful, but should  the war last, as it may, for a longer  period   than   at   first   contemplated,  more money will be required in order  to maintain our proportion of contri-  butions.  ,  Where large    contributions    have  been, made by banking, railway} insurance and other corporations operating throughout   the  Dominion,    a  share of the amount has been credited  as  having' been  collected  within  the Province, but.this.figure has not  yet been determined and hence is not  included in, figures quoted.

C.  It should be noted that the cities  of New Westminster'and Kamloops  have local relief funds not affiliated  with the Canadian Patriotic < Fund  and are at present supporting the families of soldiers residing in those  cities. Correct information as to the  number has not been obtained  The expenses of administering the  funds have been practically nominal  In Vancouver the city officials and a  volunteer committee performed the  duties free of cost to the Vancouver  War Relief fund prior, to its affiliation with the Canadian Patriotic  Fund  In Victoria, the Victoria Patriotic  Aid Society is under the able manage  ment of Mr. R. H. Swinerton, its honorary secretary, who has practically  devoted the whole of his valuable  time to its work without remuneration, and has provided an office without charge, the expenses, therefore,  being limited to cost of printing, stationery, light, fuel and two assistants  in all less than $2,500.00 for nine  months of operation.  The expenses connected with the  administration of the provincial  Branch for eight months have been  $796.51, under the able supervision  of. Mr. W. J. Goepel, Deputy Minister  of Finance, who is honorary secretary  The above sum however does not include postage and stationery, the  work of the office being carried on at  Room No. 7, Parliament Buildings,  and the cost of postage and stationery  being borne by the provincial government.  Tho secretary of the Fund at headquarters, Sir Herbert Ames, main-  tering the fund throughout Canada  has been covered by the interest allowed by the,banks upon the balance  on deposit,  All branches are being urged to  try and get new subscribers. A com  paratively small proportion of the  community are" contributing to this  very important and necessary fund.  Some sections of the province,from  which, one would expect good subscriptions have responded very poorly, whereas other and poorer districts  have come forward nobly.   .  . Likewise with individuals, those  who can afford it best arc giving the  least, and many- who can ill afford  it are straining their resources to  make their monthly contributions.  All honor to them. Many of those  loudest in their expression of patriotism are the last to put fervid loyal-  to any practical test.  .  , In the. Province, as elsewhere  throughout the Empire, everyone can  help by placing their services at the  disposal of.some charitable or patriotic   organization.  I must not forget to give credit to  the Daughters of the Empire and oth-  i erdadies who have been good enough  to devote a great deal of their time  to rendering valuable service on relief committees. Mention should be  also made of the_work being perform  ed by members on committees of the  Branch Associations throughout the  Province, secretarial and other work  being done, in the majority of cases,  without any remuneration whatsoever, as well as a great deal of time  given by members of the -committee  to investigate claims.'  The figures quoted above are approximately correct, but each organization and branch has its own auditors for the protection of the subscribers, and the whole is again subject to audit at Ottawa, under the  direction of the Minister of Finance,  the Hon. W. T. Wliit'e.���������The Colonist.      ;  WEEKLY  ERUIT REPORT  Of the Vernon Fruit Co., Ltd.,  operating at Calgary, Edmonton* Medicine Hat, Regina and Saskatoon.'

Friday the market cleaned up  leaving Saturday free, when all mark ���������  ets cleaned up.  On the whole the wook was a" difficult one. The car load at Edmonton'  was not exactly a success trade refused to buy at the high prices charged and the car hung, finally cleaning  up at prices as low as $1.00 per case.  Monday people were anxious to can  and heavy supplies cleaned up at a  surprising rate. On the whole MonT  day's receipts were of an exceptional  quality.
