PARTY LECTURED HERE  "Socialist Democratic Party made  ��������� its official visit to our town on. Wed-  iday and was represented by Messrs  Winch-and Williams. They were  .greeted by a fair audience of ladies  .and gentlemen'Who gave them a re-  . spectful hearing -while they tried to  ipreach Socialism and to expose the  , Conservative bad government.  ��������� Mr.' Winch '��������� did ��������� the preaching - and  .  Mr.   Williams   the   exposing.       The  .preaching was vague and uncertain  .and labored to' make the hearer be-:  ilieve that no one should be allowed  :to exist except those who produced  "something   that   you   could   eat   or  ;drink.    Capitalists were all bad and  competition   was  a  sin.    Millionairs  should be driven off the earth, and  socialists alone could bring about ,a  safe and-happy state of. society; they  are the salt of the" earth and as soon.  ;as'they come into power there will  ,be no  upper and lower classes,  but  everybody will be in the upper class,  all will be first class passengers on.  ^he ship of time and no steerage'pas-,;  'sengers to make thVjourney unpleas-  >.ant.    Winch has a good opinion of  ���������himself and of the S.D.P.,  or sure  ���������death to.poverty.    There will be no  iman standing at a hall door soliciting alms for a needy party when Mr.  'Winch   and   Mr.   Willliams   get   the  ireins of government.  Parker Williams, eleven years' M.  :P. P. from Newcastle, turned the lurid light on the rottoness of the Mc-  Bride-Bowser combination, a combination, according to him, without  one redeeming feature���������bad, only  and bad altogether. The members  of the Government   were   spineless  cattle, dead, jellyfish, and unfit ;for  "three shifts" in' twenty-four hours;  while useless and injurious legislation was rushed through the house  in the last two weeks of its session.  Parker Williams did not _come������ to  praise McBride and Bowser, but to  bury them, if possible, under a tirade  of abuse and sarcasm.  A HEARER.

In the past few weeks matters in  this line have taken a definite,turn  and at present indications there.will  be a drill at work in a very short  time, or as soon as the' necessary  machinery for active , operation can  be procured and' placed on1 the property.  Messrs Meek and    Stevens -' have  recently been in the district with the  information   that   they  had,   in   the  interests  of  a  Vancouver  company,  recorded in  the   sneighborhood    of  eight hundred acres'Of land includ- -  ing the townsite.    They   also', -state  that on the strength of the report of  a geologist who had been in the district  for  several  months, "they  had  decided  that the-possibilities-of  oil  being  found  here  were  sufficiently  strong to .warrant them in  placing  machinery on the property.    A company has been organized, 'composed of  Vancouver  capitalists, stock; will, be ,  place'd'on' th'e"m-a:rkeT ih' 'the' rie'ttr"f ut- "''  ure and results will be keenly watched for by the citizens and company-'  alike.  These recent developments have  caused corisidofrable excitement in  town and speculation is rife as to  the probable outcome of it' all. All  dependable indications point to the  presence of oil In this locality, the"  only thing lacking to ascertain the  correctness of these indications was  a strong company to finance the proposition.

The matter of fencing the/Smith-  Jones road' across the property of Mr.  Jones was the matter of considerable  discussion and it was finally decided  that Mr. Jones be allowed 90 cents  per rod for the" fencing, he to wait  for payment until the taxes are paid  in the fall.  Mr. M. E. Alexander, representing  Mr. H. Hemlow, the owner of D= L,  203, addressed the council in the matter' of .establishing of the proposed  road along the eastern boundary.  Councillor McCallum assured ' the  council that no compensation would  be asked by the owner of'D. L. 382  for the east half of a forty foot road  on this boundary line.

Cut Iris  made  their first appearance  in   the   flower  stalls   and   sold  rapidly at 25 cents the dozen.    Flowering     plants,     such   as  geraniums,  dahlias and pansies also wore good  sellers.      Some rose bushes went at  35 to 5 0 cents each.    Pinks at-two  dozen for 15 cents were good sellers.  . Predominating in the chicken department    were   the broilers which  sold  briskly at  25  to  30  cents  the  pound.

Charles E. Nicholson, her designer  assisted in laying bare some of her  secrets but refused to disclose all,  notably that which is most interesting to yachtnien, the sail area.of the  new challenger.  Tho form of the Shamrock's hull  however makes it evident that the  sail area will considerably exceed the  8000 and odd square feet which, according to the reports cabled here  the Herreshoff boat, the "Resolute"  will carry. If pitted against the'  "Resolute" in the cup races, "Shamrock" will not only have to beat her  but beat her two or three minutes  to win the cup.  The following figures of. the  "Shamrock's" dimensions may be regarded as authoritative: Length over  all 110 feet; length in water line, 75  feet; greatest beam, 22 feet;-draugh't  without cenralboard, 13.9 feet. With  without central board, 13.9 feet With  tent the draught will be 10 feet addi-.  tional.   -������������������;.- ���������  plate'housed ���������������������������in"'a!tfu:6k coming well  above the .cabin. Jloors. ,  ��������� Centralbourd' 'Is"-Experimental  "Frankly" said the designer, "the  centreboard is purely experimental  1 am not sure that it will prove of any  advantage or that we will use it in  the cup 'races', but by the American  rules under/'.which the boat is built,  any excess,-of draught over 13.9 feet  is heavily penalized, while no penalty  is attached'to additional draught derived from a centreboard, and as such  additional Iraught may help,in wind  ward work, I have recourse to a  centreboard.' - \  Conventions Discarded  In design "Shamrock IV" differs  markedly from the previous cup challengers, nor does she bear a close resemblance to any American craft. Mr  Nicholson discarded conventions and  boldly carried out his own ideas, ,with  tho result that "Shamrock IV" is  certainly original, if somewhat-freakish."  After being tried out against the  23 metre "Shamrock" she will start  across the Atlantic about July 20, ac  cording to present arrangements.  "What are her chances, of winning?" Mr. Nicholson was asked, and  his answer to that enqiury was a  shrug of his shoulder. "I have done  my best" he said, "and throe American designers, who have turned out  cup defenders, have done their best,  to. It is striking proof that there is  still much to be learned in yacht designing that all four, of us, working,  under the same rules, havo each  turned out something different.!'

' -It could'be seen that her overhangs  are not excessive, and less than those  of/ the American cup defenders  "Valkyrie" and " Defender" , They  are about equally divided fore and  ���������aft. The upper lines of the boat are  snubbed in and the stern cut off with  an upright transom at a point- where  the designer considers ' additional  length to.be of no benefit.

Her  midship section shows a fairly flat  floor with an easy round to the upper  bilge, the curve of which is continued  right up the deck, giving a considerable tumble home to the top sides  There., is a shorter curve from the  floor to the lead keel, which is appreciably bulbed and flat on. the bottom.  The keel is fairly long and the rake  of the stern post is not excessive. The  position of greatest breadth of the  beam is not forward of the mast; as  recently stated. Like the "Vanity"  she will' be fitted with a single head  sail, hence her bowsprit outboard will  be very short.  Hollow Wooden Mast  The challenger will be fitted with  a hollow wooden mast, the height of  which is .one of the secrets the designer would not disclose, but it will  certainly be tremendous. The report  that she will carry a Marconi top  mast is erroneous.,  A steel mast will also be provided  as a substitute for the wooden mast  if the latter proves defective "Shamrock IV's" construction is composite  being of wood plank on metal web  frames, which are in part of steel and  in" part of alumium. The planking  is of three thicknesses, the two inner  skins running diagonally and the outer longitudinally. '  "I believe" said Mr. Nicholson,  "that we have as quite as light a hull  as if it had been wholly of bronze or  other metal with the additional advantage, of a little more elasticity and  greater smoothness as there are no  rivet heads showing through  The second annual report of the  Markets Commissioner of the province of British Columbia has reached  this office, and while too long to publish, yet it is of sufficient interest  to our growers to demand space for  the   following:  Mr. J.

A later visit to the  mother side of the line with similar  objects was'made immediately before;  the preserving fruit season.  .On my return to the prairies, he  says,   I   continue'd  the   work   of..investigating and reporting conditions  on the marketing territory as carried  oh in previous years, considerbly in  creasing    number.of correspondents  and making such arrangements - for  the distribution of the multigraphed  copies of my weekly report from Calgary that members of the British Columbia Fruit    Growers'    Association  were able to receive Saturday's news  from  all   centres   on,   or  very  soon  after, the following Monday morning  Later in the season a new and valuable feature was added to the report, when    .telegraphic    correspondence was arranged for from the prin  cipal American fruit growing centres  It is expected that the feature may be  further developed and extended next  year.    The lettergram service to the  principal-fruit shipping organizations  was discontinued this year, as it was  felt   that   such   a   service   was   not  sufficiently more timely than the full  er mailed reports to justify the additional expense It may be oportune  to state here that the market news  service even though it was organized  on a much more comprehensive scale  than at present can,never be expected  to   supply   the   place   of   specific  daily telegraphic information sent to  the shipper by his sales representatives.    It  does  however  furnish  effective machinery for gathering and  promptly disseminating valuable infor  mation as to crop probabilities, probable and prevailing price and conditions,  costs of  transportation,  the  general competitive situation,    fruit  consumption on the marketing territory, the attitude of the trade, whole  sale and retail, tovyards^ our products  etc.    The work of the markets commissioner is indeed, preeminently one  of inquiry and investigation,andalong  these lines thre is a vast and ever-  widening field of activity.    It should  be clearly understood, however, that  a government    official    unconnected  with and not responsible    to,    any  marketing organization is not in    a  position directly .to Influence actual  distribution.  ' Hish functions are purely reportorial and advisory, nor is  it either possibe or desirabe that they  be otherwise.  It may be interesting to report that  the federal government of the United  States has recently organized a bureau of markets, nine-tenths of whose  proposed scope ds"' recently outlined  in an address to its chief (although  scale) is precisely' that covered by  the British Columbia Markets Commissioner.  SMALL FRUITS  Rain at thetime, of shipping was  responsible  for many  of  the strawberries from Lower, Mainland points  reaching the market in poor condition  while even theCreston district, which  is somewhat more favorably situated  in   this  respect,   had   more   loss   on  this account than usual'.      Ma'ny~of  the American competing berries mov  ing by exprss in iced cars reached  the market in excellent order.though  refrigeration,   of  course,   could   not  counteract  the  effect  of  picking  in  wet weather, and some especially the  berries from Bay Islands, arrived soft  and mouldy.    On the Calgary market, lack of harmony, also, between  the two  brokerage houses  handling  American   berries,  the  Mutual   Brokerage Company and the Alberta Brokerage  Company,   seriously -affected  the   situation.       In' 1912   the   fivo  wholesale houses acting through one  brokerage,   carried  out  a   policy   of  splitting carB that kept the market  constantly clean.    Last year this el-  oment  of   co-operation   was  absent,  and tho two factions of wholesalers  were working at cross purposes. Tho  net result was, of course, to unsteady  the  market and  lower prices. . The  raspberry situation was, on,the whole  more  satisfactory,    and  good stock  fro   niBritish   Columbia   brought   on  the whole very A air prices;  though,  with  these  a.'so,   there-   was    .some  cause for complaint.  would once more strongly urge  British Columbia borry growers to  consider seriously the question of  immediate action in tho direction of  organizing for production in car load  lots. Small express shipments without refrigeration cannot possibly be  expected to reach ,the market In condition to meet the competition of car  load lots coming in under ice. The  market for strawberries is unlimited  (upwards of 140 cars of American  berries reached the prairies this season, in spite of the heavy disadvantages in express and.duty), and that  for raspberries, though not so promising (less than fifty cars this year,  .twenty of them distributed in Winnipeg), would undoubtedly expand to  meet any ordinary supply that was  reliable and .regular. (Incidentally it  may be mentioned that.our only  American raspberry competitor of  consequence Puyallup, in 1912 shipped 135 car' loads of fresh raspberries, and in 1913 increased this to  369) With the benefit of 48 cents  a box duty and the reduced express  rates for car load . lots (probably  $1.65 instead of $2.25 from Lower  Mainland points to Calgary, and $1.  45 instead of $1.90 from Creston),  we should Tiave an assured demand  and an advantage of close on a dollar  per case over competitorrs to Alberta points, 60 tb 75 cents per case to  Saskatchewan and at least 50 cents  per case to Winnipeg. With such advantages and the assurance of bong  able to lay our berries down in good  condition, sales to' jobbers at satisfactory prices, f. o. b. point of shipment would, replace the present'more,  er less unsatisfactory system of sell  ing to the retailer, and British Col-N  umbia berries would drive competition from the field as fast as-the  needs of the territory could be sup-;  plied.. .  '  If organization for carload production does not seem immediately  practicable, I would recommend as  the next best thing, such a measure  of organization among berry growers  as would render possible: (1) The  maintenance of a travelling representative on the prairies during the,  whole of the berry season; (2) some  system of assuring efficiency and dependability of supply to the retailer  (3)organized methods of passing upon and holding back for local cannery  consumption such berries as are not  in condition to stand shipment.

Of the  sums borrowed from the Bank $4,-  500.00 had been used to pay off the  indebtedness of the council of 1913,  and $2,050.00 had been loaned to the  school board. It was apparent that  the payment of any new work undertaken would have���������to wait until the  taxes were paid in".  By-laws .  The "Matsqui Road Tax By-law,  1914" passed first, 'second and third  readings. One of the conditions as  laid down by this by-law is that the  owner of any land being sub-divided-  must slash all new,roads and streets  to a width of forty feet and rough  grade the same to a width of riot  more than twenty feet.  Councillor Melander gave notice to  introduce a'rate by-law for municipal  and school purposes at the next meeting of the council.  The council then adjourned to meet  la the exhibition building of the Matsqui Agricultural and Horticultural  Association on Saturday, June 20th,  at 10 o'clock in the forenoon. . ���������  James Gibson,  Clerk of the Council  bers whose invested interest in-American 'car load berries predispose  them to job off its helpless competitor for whatever it. will fetch. An  exception must, of course, be made  of commission houses in Calgary and  Regina who handle British Columbia  berries exclusively, and, on the whole  to the satisfaction of tho grower.  Still it remains a fact that, under  present L.. C. L. conditions, the interests of the berrw grower lie in the  direction of building up and extend  ing his retail connection, and this can  only be done by keepinga sales re:  prcsentative in the territory.  I also strongly recommend the utilization of the Calgary Public.Market as an outlet for surplus fruit on  one of our plans: (1)Opening a stall  with representative in charge; (2)  arranging to sell through one of tho  bonded stall-holders;' (3) arranging  to ,sell through the markot representative of the Grain Growers Grain  Company; (4) arranging to sell  through a commission department of  the market that will probably be opened next year.  I would suggest to the berry grow  ers that they open negotiations with  Mr.  Fream,  manager of  the   Grain-  Growers Grain  Company, as  to  the  question of disposing of some of their  berries to the farmers through his organization.    In a recent conversation  with that gentleman he spoke quite  favorably of such, a possibility.  Grain-Growers'   Organization  The most feasible of the plans constantly, suggested, for going direct to  the  consumer is    undoubtedly    the;  scheme  being discussed  for     distributing a portion of our fruit tlirougn  the Grain Growers Company, Limited.  This organization has no local bran-J  ches, but it is closely .affiliated with  the educational institutions. in each'  of the three prairie provinces, with a  total;membership of 50,000, and with;  the Alberta and Saskatchewan Farm  ers'Co-operative Elevator Companies  the.former of'which .lias 53  (and by'  June  next  will  have~'i25)   and  the  latter 200 "locals.vWith" all the machinery of local organization for distributing supplies of flour, coal, fruit,'  etc., The company is ready to arrange  with us to supply a part of its fruit  needs/ but it has already opened up  a connection with Ontario, which sup  plied 35 car loads of apples to Manitoba and Eastern Saskatchewan last  year.    It is clear therefore, that we  shall  have  to  be  prepared to  meet  active Ontario competition, and that  the comparative laid down prices of  our own and the Eeastern fruit will  have  much  to do  with  determining  the isue.    Freight rates as between  Ontario and British Columbia are so  far in our favor that, from Brandon  west, we have an advantage of from  5'to 54 cents per 100 pounds. On the  basis of last year's Ontario quotations  we could load a car,66% No l's and  3/3% No. 2's and meet Ontario delivered prices at all points west of Med':  icine  Hat  at  $1.26  f.  o.  b.   B.  C.  $1.10 would have sold our apples ai  far west as Regina,, but we should'  have had to drop below 90 cents to  compete    in    the Winnipeg district.  It  is   apparent  therefore,   that  the  price conditions should, give us decidedly the upper hand in Alberta, a  reasonably fair opportunity as far as  Regina, though only a bare fighting  chance beyond.
