The visit of the Pacific Coast  Ad. Men's Association, in convention  in Vancouver, was made the occasion  of an impressive display which was  materially assisted by the manner by  which the outside municipalities, especially South Vancouver, turned* out  in- force.  '  Following the representation of  the glory of Vancouver, including  a float representing Captain Vancouver, the great explorer, and another,  representing the "Queen of the West"  New Westminster's three May Queens  and maids'of honor were prominent  and pretty in a decorated car. In  the car there were Mrs. Scoullar, the  first May Queen in New Westminster  crowned in 1870, Miss Eva Atkinson,  Queen regent, and Miss Jean Mc-  Phail, the ex-queen, both the latter in their royal robes and surrounded by their maids of honor.  The officials of the .May Day celebration followed in another car.  ���������Further back, much further'back,  after thousands of feet of lumber  and many loads of firewood bigger  than those delivered to customers,  had gone by, came the outside mun  icipalities, New Westminster leading  with the city council, board of trade  and R.A. & I. Society in autos. Point  Grey followed and had a hose and  chemical from its fire department on  parade.

RESOLUTION OF PROTEST  Fear Expressed That Oriental Fishermen Will Soon Control Fraser.  Fear that the fishing on the upper  readies of the Fraser river, above  the bridge at New Westminster will  pass out of the hands of the white  fishermen unless some remedial legislation is passed, was expressed in  resolution adopted at a recent meeting held in the town hall at Fort  Langley. The motion was as follows:  "That having heard ' with regret  that our Dominion Parliament representative, Col. J.- D. Taylor, M. P.,  is not in sympathy with the proposal  to limit the number of licenses, and  to give white men applying for fishing licenses thirty days' prior right  to apply, this meeting points out  that a residence qualification is no  real protection, as one Japanese, by  leasing or buying a small tract of  land, can qualify a whole Japanese  colony, and that, if this is not stopped, it can only be a very few years  from now when the fishing above the  bridge will be entirely in the hands  of Orientals, as it practically is today below the bridge.  ' "The white people in this locality  do not propose to have the bread  taken out of their mouths by any  alien Orientals, and, if necessary,  are prepared to go further than to  make .a verbal protest."  ���������It will be remembered in this connection ,that an organization representing white and Indian* fishermen  of the Fraser river'circulated a petition among the municipalities to  be used as a protest against the invasion of Oriental fishermen. The  petition was largely signed, and included the official endorsement of  Matsqui Municipality.  It is unreasonable to asume that  the matter will stand where it is and  representation should and will no  doubt be made direct to the Minister  of Fisheries at Ottawa.  Tuesday.  At the inquest held by Coroner F.  J. Doherty, at Port Coquitlam', the  jury returned a verdict of accidental  death and the" trainmen were exonerated from all blame. The dead  man was about forty years of age  and beyond a card addressed Alexander Charles, James Street, Winnipeg, nothing was- found by which he  could  be identified.  He was struck by an east bound  freight which at the time was backing up. .A passenger train was running in the opposite direction and if  is thought that the nose of- the oncoming freight train deadened tho  approach of the passenger.  Miss Atkinson is now in the Sumas  hospital undergoing treatment /for  appendicitis.  Mrs Geo. Parker of Boundary  Lake has a curiosity in the shape  of a night blooming cactus or to be  more correct. P.hyllo Cactus. ' This  plant is probably the only one in tho  district, or for that matter the only  one in the-Fraser.. Valley. The peculiarity of this plant is the fact that  tho flowers remain closed during the  day time but open *% soon as it becomes dark. . After a few brief hour*'  of glory the flowers close and die.  Mrs. Parker has invited her numerous friends to visit her and view for  themselves this rarity and many of  them have availed themselves of the  opportunity. -. '������������������  A. C.

Many floats and much road plant;  etc., were in line. Burnaby had- a  beautiful floral float and also turned  out its civic plant, including a company of employees in khaki uniform.  Many of the floats of private firms  and secret societies were elaborate  and expensive, the ..Westminster Elks  having a prominent part, and the  parade, though it took two hours to  pass a given point, was thoroughly  enjoyed by thousands.  Many Mission City residents were  in the city to wittness the pageant,  several of whom were equipped with  cameras from which many very interesting views were obtained and  which will serve as a souvenir of  the occasion.  The visiting ad. men were entertained in New Westminster on Saturday by the publicity commissioners and citizens of the Royal City.  A banquet, the ingredients of \v,hich  were collected from different parts  of B. C. adjacent to the coast, was  tendered the publicity men, and it  is reasonable to assume that the  most enjoyable item on the menu  was the strawberries donated gratis  by some of the more public spirited  'citizens of Mission. After ample  justice had been done to the good  things and a few brief speeches delivered, the visitors were=taken a-  bout .the outlying districts of New  Westminster ;in' autos and visited  such points of. interest as Fraser  Mills, the colony farm, and Coquitlam.  Co-operation and public spirit  were exemplified at Matsqui Thursday last when under the auspices of  the Matsqui Women's Institute, the  farmers and residents of. the Mats-,  qui dyking district re-constructed a  stretch of road that for a long time  has'been impassable. This road-is  the main thoroughfare over, which  the farmers convey their produce to  the C. P. ��������� R. station,. arid as funds  were lacking for its construction,  the members of the Women's Institute organized a village improvement day and their call was answered by the farmers within a radius of three miles of the village.  Sixty-five, teams were put to work in  the early morning hauling crushed  rock from the goverment bunkers at  Gifford, three miles. away, and a-  bout one hundred men in all worked  throughout the day. on the road. By  night just 140 loads of the road  material had been hauled and put  in place. The govorment supplied  the crushed rock, also supplied the  roller and sprinkler.  Four horses were hitched to the  roller and as, fast ��������� as the, rock was  levelled off it was rolled. -  Miss L. E. Cruickshanks, president -  .of., the. .Women's ��������� Institute,; .was - in  charge of "the ,wo*rk, assisted by Road  Foreman John Pace , and ��������� Mr. M. ��������� E.  Alexander,   of. Clayburn.  An excellent dinner was served in  the  Women's   Institute   building, by  the ladies, and music was furnished  by Miss Alta  Crist.    After this excellent repast the  citizen  road constructors were supplied  with  cigars  by  Miss  Gertrude ' Alexander,   while  a large five-gallon can of fresh' milk  was kept handy for the thirsty ones.  The ladies in charge of the dinner  were  Mrs.   Alexander,   Mrs.   Cruickshank,   Mrs.   Stocker,   Mrs.- Gauney,  Mrs. Phinney, Mrs. Miller, Mrs. Seldom   Mrs.   Shoire,   Mlrs.

The waitresses were Miss Annie Smith, Miss  Winnie Johnson, Miss Pearl Behar-  rel, Mies Frances Kent, Miss Beaton  Miss Nellie Lancaster, Miss .

Despres, a Frenchman, employed at Gunn's Quarrie on  the Hatzic Prairie road was found in  a slough emptying into Hatzic lake.  The body was found in about five  feet of water, entirely.nude but for  a     pair   of     worn     overalls. A  coroner's jury, called to investigate  the matter, thought it necessary to  adjourn in hopes that something definite could be found on which to  render a verdict.  The deceased, who hailed from  Millardvllle, and for the past four  years employed with Gunn's camp,  was particularly well liked arid the  cause of his death can only.be surmised, as he was apparently alone at  the time of the accident. The remains were interred in the O.M.l.  cemetery.  Messrs. Clark, Gillespie and Kennedy, returned from Victoria the end  of last week after having attended  the Odd Fellows' Grand Lodge there.

E.     Scott,   deputy   minister  of  agriculture,  regards as    a    hopeful  sign   of   the   times   the   co-operative  spirit  which  is  abroad  among ���������   the  farmers of this province;    From his  ,   observation he is led to the conclusion that farmers are realizing more  and   more  the. importance  of     con-  . ducting ���������.'their    business    along well  thought  out,   businesslike,   co-operative lines, if the highest success in  agriculture is  to  be obtained.      He  instances  how   there   has   been   co-  or-oratlon in buying in this province.  Farmers' institutes,  poultry associations,   fruit   growers'     associations,  and    farmers'    co-operative associa-  . tions in general  have found that a  material  saving   is     being    effected  ��������� throughout   the   province   generally  by     purchasing     wholesale  in     the  cheapest  market   such   materials  as  foodstuffs, grains, grass seed, spraying' materials,     fruit   packages  and  other articles necessary to the farmer in manufacturing the finished product of the ranch. (   .  The- marketing   of   farmer's   produce  by  co-operation   has  also  had  some noticeable instances of success.  The outstanding example is the Ok-  anagan United  Growers' Ltd.,  a  cooperative selling agency for eight incorporated  fruit  growers'     associations  of  the   Okanagan  Valley.    Of  the success of this co-operative selling  organization  the  Deputy Minister says:   "The value of this movement    was    apparent    immediately,  was handled by the agency, and the  the   produce  at  fairly  remunerative  prices.  *   *  *  *  Sixty five per cent,  of the total produce of the Okanagan  was hadled by- the agency,  and the  ��������� prices received by the growers for  their produce was on the whole satisfactory. Internal competition was  to a large extent done away with,  and there was no difficulty marketing   the' total   output   at   fairly   re-  ��������� munerative prices. There is no possible doubt that the growers in coming together in this way secured better prices for their produce than  would have been the case under the  old   conclitions."  The Deputy Minister looks for the  whole province to be covered in time  by, such co-operative associations,  the result looked for being economy  in production, distribution and marketing and higher prices secured by  the... elimination of internal competition. .  . The success of the co-operative  .movement in the interior should encourage the Fraser Valley Development League to go forward in their  work of organizing co-operative marketing among the producers of the  Fraser   Valley.-���������Columbian.  time taken to carefully peruse it entire, especially in the case of those  growers of the Fraser Valley who  find it necessary to look to the markets of the Prairie provinces "or tlie  disposal of their  fruit., etc.  MUCH LAND REMAINS  FOR PRE-EMPTORS  Only One Third of Area Thrown Open in South Fraser Valley Was  Taken Up.���������Good  Fanning  Country.  Mr.  Gordon Smith, of the Depart  ment,of Lands,   returned  the  other  day from McBride,  B.  C, where he  had  charge of the arrangements in  connection with the opening up of a  large area of land for  pre-emption.  He visited the experimental dry farm  established   by   the   Department   of  Lands  on  his way  from  the North,  meeting Prof. W. J. Elliott,  who is  overseeing  the 'work   there   at   105  Mile House on the Cariboo Road, and  proceeded   with   him   to}  tlie   QuiIt-  chelna Commonage.    Mr.' Smith said  "In the valley of the South Fork  of the Fraser river 322 preemptions,  generally averaging 160 acres in extent,   the   whole   aggregating   about  4 0,000  acres,  were thrown  open at  a   special  office   opened   by  the  Department of Lands,  at  McBride, on  June 1.    About one third of the pre  emptions were  taken  up, and there  remains  a great  area  of  land  well  suited for the purpose of agriculture  and not difficult to clear, still available for any home seeker who applies  to the Government Agent of the district  at   his   office   at   Fort   George.  Those who stood  higher  up  in the  line when the doors of the office at  McBride were thrown open on June  1, had waited for two or three weeks  in  front of the building���������one .man,  W. J. Taylor, liad spent over a month  there.    In  order  to  make the  long  wait as comfortable as possible un  der   the   circuriistances   for   the   intending pre-emptors,  the officials of  the Department  at McBride erected  a large tent in which the applicants  disposed  themselves,  a roll call  be  ing made twice a day, each man having  been  supplied- with a ticket indicating   his   place   in  the' line   ac-  cordng to the priority of his arrival.  The   system   worked   well, . and   all  were satisfied.    At noon on1 the opening  day  eighty-seven  applications  had   been  received  and  the* number  increased  to ninety-two  the  following day.    During the next.few days |  surprisingly little effect' on the general crops. On the Quilchena Commonage farm , the oats and spring  rye were about a foot in height. The  conditions here have been far less  favorable than at the northern station at Lillooet' yet the crops compare well. The indications at both  seem to indicate that an opportunity  for. development, of the dry,, belts of  the province, the extent of which it  is hard to estimate, is offered by the  dry farming process. It is too early of course, yet, to state positively  what crops can best be grown, but  experiments are ' being made with  many varieties in order that it may  be shown how the dry belt can be  most successfully farmed."  3fc  AVESTMINSTER  MA RKET  a few others came, and  by the end  A jury at the criminal assizes in  Vancouver recently found a verdict  of manslaughter in the case of an  alien, a Chinese youth, who had  been charged with one of the most  . fiendish crimes known to the history  of the, Terminal City, that of murdering the wife of his employer. The  verdict of manslaughter carries with  it only imprisonment. In the same  court a few weeks later another alien  ' an Italian, was charged with having  murdered his; partner in business after a quarrel, his defence being self  defence. A jury of his peers found  a verdict of murder in the first degree, and unless the courts intervene he will pay the penalty on the  gallows. Thus do the wheels of justice grind.  In another column appears the  second and final instalment of the  annual report of the Government  Market Commissioner, J. Forsyth  Smith.  This report, the first section of  which appeared in this publication  in a previous issue, is very complete  and comprehensive, and goes thoroughly into the details of market  conditions throughout the Prairie  provinces as found by the Commissioner during the season of 1913.      I  The Commissioner, in his report,  strongly urges the necessity of thorough organization of all producing  and selling bodies and goes on to  cite many instances of different  organizations throughout the country.    The report is well  wortiv tlie  of the week 105 applications had  been -made, covering Jess; than a  third of the land available for settlement in this part of the valley of  the   Fraser.  "On Monday another large  area,  approximately 40,000 acres,' offering  pre-emtfons to over 300 others, will  be  thrown   open   to   settlers   at  the  office   of  the   Gov't   Agent  at   Fort  George.    Similar   arrangements   are  made for the opening of this land as  at   McBride,   the   line   beginning  to  form at Fort George on; June 5 when  a  party  of  seven  intending settlers  brought  their tents  and  started    a  camp adjoining the office of the Government Agent to await the opening  or! their land. The number gradually  increased and it is expected1 that at  least  as large a number as applied  at McBride will record pre-emptions.  "Crops   on   the   experimental   dry  farms  established   on   the   Common-  age^at Nicola and at 103-Mile on the  Cariboo  Road  in   Northern  Lillooet  by the Department of Lands, in order  to   demonstrate   the   possibilities   of  cultivating the lands in the dry belt  by this process of farming, are making a splendid showing.    On the station   at  the   Commonage,   which   is  situated at an elevation of 3,900 feet  four miles south from Quilchelna, in  the Nicola district, the crops show to  advantage in comparison with those  under irrigation in the valley, despite  the fact that the station was not established last year until a proportion  of the annual moisture had been lost.  Because of this the total amount of  moisture   available   has   been   little  over five inches.    On the cultivated  land  the moisture  shows now  to  a  depth   of thirty-one inches,  and  on  the uncultivated  range adjoining it  is down to a foot.    Frosts were encountered at both    farms    early in  New potatoes grown at Clayton  made their first appearance at the  New Westminster weekly market  last Friday and sold very rapidly at  i cents the pound. By the sack  they could be had at 4 cents per  pound or $4 per sack. Some potatoes grown at Lulu Island were held  at the high price of 8 , cents the  pound.  Several new features Avere seen,  among them being tomatoes grown  by Tidy, the florist, honey from  Langley,, -beets and carrots in the  vegetable stalls and cream cheese  from  Aldergroye. ���������  The attendance was not up to  what it has been for the past month  with the result that the buying was  not so brisk, but those who were  there were eager to buy.  Eggs took a sudden jump and sold  for five cents the dozen more than  last week, or 35 cents retail and 30  cents per dozen wholesale: Butter  went back to the old price, that of  35 to 40 cents retail and 30 to 35  cents  per  pound  wholesale.  Strawberries grown at Delta, Fort  Langley and at Sapperton sold at  the price of two boxes for 25 cents,  some sold at ten cents(the. box. By  the crate they could be had for from  S2 to $2.50. Gooseberries could be  had at two pounds for 25 cents.  Cherries from the same localities  brought ten cents the pound. A  small consignment from Clayton  went at 8 cents the pound.  Tomatoes grown by Tidy, at his  gardens on the North < road, for the  first time this season sold rapidly at  25' cents the pound. Beets and carrots also made .their first appearance in the vegetable department  and sold ��������� briskly at five cents the  bunch. Cabbages were two heads  for 15 cents. Radishes, onions and  turnips sold at three bunches for 5  cents.  Honey from Fort Langley also  was a supply that made its first appearance and sold at 25 cents the  | pound. Devonshire cream from, the  sarnie place, sold at 25 cents, for a  half pint jar, or 45 cents the pint.  Full cream cheese from the Apple-  garth dairy, Aldergrove, was another new feature which brought 50 ?  cents the pound.  In the chicken department young  ducks dropped to the price of 19  cents the pound. Broiling chickens  remained at the same price of 2 5 to  28, cents the pound. Ducks and  chicks, four, and five days old sold  at 25 cents each. Old chickens live  weight sold at the stationary price  of 18 to 20 cents the pound.  Veal in the meat section was 2  cents the pound higher, or 30 cents  the pound retail. Pork was in good  demand at-20 to 25 cents the pound.  In the fish, stalls fresh herring was  a good seller.at three pounds for  25 cents. Smelt was also in good  demand at 10 cents the pound. The  rest of the fish also'went rapidly.  Old fashioned Canterbury Bells  were the feature of the flower stalls  and sold at 25 cents the dozen.  Gallardias were 15 cents the bunch.  Potted . plants, especially geraniums,  were good sellers.

PROVINCIAL  NOTES  , Quite a number of new, members  have joined the fruit union of Sum-  merlan'd.'' The officials expect to  handle a much larger' output than  last year, as are not only last year's  shippers anticipating larger crops,  but quite a' number of ."additional  growers will market their���������produce  through that channel.  The Provincial Department of Agriculture will establish a demonstra-,.  tion station at Summerland. It will  propaply be located on the property!  of J. L. Hillborn. A' careful detailed  record of all costs of production', the  results ci' different varieties and other data will be noted, and much  valuable information will be made  available.  A very enthusiastic meeting of  poultry breeders was held in the Columbia hotel at Golden last Friday  night under the direction of Mr. Upton, provincial government poultry  expert. It was decided that Golden  could support a flourishing poultry  association, and a committee was appointed to draw up a constitution and  report to a future meeting.  The traffic bridge to be erected by  the Provincial Government, over the  Pitt River, will be built within the  next year, so say the contractors.  All shoes now in stock to be cleared out  at cost price, including English K Boots, the  regular price of which are $6.00, 6.50 and  7.50 for $4.50, $5.50 and $6.00 per pair,  on other lines cut as low.

Its stalls,  moreover, are all  taken,  and  there  is  a   strong  local  demand   for  more.    Reglna's  public  market has been closed, as it proved  a failure    Edmonton and Lethbridg  are also  contemplating action along  this line  in the  near    future,    and  when   their   plans   materialize   they  will, provide valuable  near at  hand  outlets for surplus soft fruits.  . Conclusion.  In conclusion, I would urge growers to a full realization of the marketing   difficulties   before   us  in  the  coming heavy crop season, and to the  fullest  preparation   therefor,   in  the  way  of  perfecting  organization  and  arranging   to   utilize   every   possible  outlet for our fruit.    It s.true that  the existanco of such a capably handled   marketing   organization   as   the  North Pacillc Fruit  Distributors, on  the other side of the line, promise to  eliminate tho chief source of the unr  fortunate   glut   conditions  that   prevailed on tho Prairie markots during  tlie season of 1912���������viz., the indiscriminate consignments of weak and  irresponsible     marketing     organizations.    The   latter   havo   now   been  pretty well taken in under the wings  of   the   central   distributing  agency,  where  their  powers to  do  us  harm  will  be minimized.    It must still be  remembered,  however,     that,     even  with  the  generally  favorable  conditions of the present year, that it is  logical   to   expect   less   satisfactory  price conditions there next year, and  that  conditions'  there  are  bound  to  be reflected on the Prairie markets.  It  undoubtedly  behoves   us  then  to  be up and doing in all lines of activity  that   will  better  enable  us  to  meet the needs of the situation.

And the association did all this mere  ly by preaching and practicing teamwork, collective action.  "There  are   14 00   growers  in  the  association.    Though   they  contributed only a dollar apiece to the capital, they own collectively ,t*.yo .large  canneries ��������� worth   almost''a   hundred  thousand dollars.    They shipped last  year   1-53,000   crates   of   raspberries  for   which   tho: grower  received  the  minimum of $1.14 a crate.    The association's  total  shipments of* fresh  berries   reached   429   carloads,   and  the cannery output added one third  more.    Puyallup  berries in carloads  went as far as Chicago, and  by express  they  travelled  to  New' York.  Twelve years ago an output of 10,000  crates glutted, the  market,  smashed  prices.    The'output was    so    small  that the miniature cannery was able  to clean up the entire stock in a run  ol! ten clays.    This year (300 persons  will be busy-in the two largo canneries from May( to November;  600 car  loads of fresh' berries will roll across  ,the mountains;   in July an army, of  12,000 pickers will camp beneath tho  firs and cedars of the  valley.    And  the association stands ready to contract with all farmers for the, entire  output of all berries and certain vegetables for five years at prices high  enough to pay the grower abundant  profit."  "The farmers' worries are twofold.  First he must produce, and production depends largely on the proper  bistribution of heat and, moisture.  After ho has-harvested he must soil  his crop at a profit. Neither task is  overly easy. The Puyallup valley  produces steadily, abundantly���������and  it sells its products at a profit, thanks  to team work, collective action."

REPORT OF MARKET  COMMISSIONERS  .(Continued from issue of June 4th  1D14.)  The public market*- on the Prairie  promise to be of considerable assistance io the Britis'i Columbia grower  in the future,  especially in the disposal cf surplus bet*rie3 and the more  perishable soft j-ruirs.    The Calgary  Market has a large public patronage  and   support,   and   on   this  account,  and  because of its nearness to thi3  province and the efficiency of its present organization, will quite probably  be largely  used next year.    My recommendations  to   the   berry  growers  suggest  the  four  possible  ways  of disposing of fruit by this means.  If it is desired to open a stall at Calgary   next   year,   application .should  be sent in to the.Market Superintendent as soon as possible, as, in spite  of  this  being  the   dull  season,   two  weeks  ago  there  were  thirteen  applications  for  stalls  on  the  waiting  list.    Considerable extensions to the  buildings, however, now being mooted, will probably greatly increase the  present     facilities.       Brandon   and  Winnipeg also  have    active    public  markets,  though  that of the latter  la by no means on a scalo commensurate with the size of the city, nor  has it the popular support that marks  the   Calgary   institution.       Medicine  Hat has a market in operaton,  but  with   no   satisfactory   arrangements  '. So much has been said or written  about the Puyallup and Sumner cooperative methods of -handling fruit  and the resultant profits derived from  them that there seems little else to  be said, but Walter V.  Woehlke in  the Sunset magazine for this month  sets forth the conditions of those districts so fully and shows  where  money can  be  ma,be   from  small   farms  when properly handled that no'apol-  ou.y  is' necessary   for  the  reprodnotion cf the article in part.    It says:  'The town of Puyallup thirty years  ago   was  a   mill   town  seated  on  a  ward.    The loggers had followed the  receding timber, but they had left a  heavy mortgage of stumps and bn.sh  on the cut over land.    Clearing proceeded slowly.    On the cleared land  hops   paid   big  profits   for   a  while.  They tried berries.    In .the cool days  and   nights   raspberries   and   blackberries matured slowly, attained    a  size,  flavor  and firmness  of texture  that   made,   the   consumer's   mouth  water .for more.    To supply the demands   for   the  home   market  more  berries were planted,  so many that  in 1894 a crate of twenty-four boxes  of  luscious- raspberries,   hauled   ten'  miles    from    Puyallup    to    Tacoma,  brought  twenty-five  or  thirty  cents  barely the cost of picking.   ��������� Some of  the berry growers went through their  berry   patches  with   the   plow.       A  handful   of   hopeful   ones   organized  an association to find better markets  for the surplus.  "In 1902 the Puyallup valley  shipped 5000 crates of fresh raspberries and still there was a surplus.  So the association incorporated, borrowed a vacant store, borrowed a two  horse power boiler and proceeded  to can the surplus. It could not sell  the output of the cannery, but W.  H. Paulhamus, the president of the  association and its manager, did not  lose hope.  "Today the    erstwhile two horsepower   outfit   of   the   Puyallup   and  Sumner  Fruit Grower's Association,  is the biggest thing in the valley, in  Western   Washington.    It   has trebled land values in the valley during  the past ten  years,  it has laid the  foundation for hundreds of self supporting homes on wee farms; it has  put down asphalt pavements, cement  sidewalks, built modern schools and  libraries, maintained trim lawns and  flower gardens in the towns of Puyallup and  Sumner.
