Nelson people may be bought by  the promise of a road, but if the development of the. country -requires it  tho road will soon'-be built���������but net  one bit quicker because the--votes of  a. majority of the people were bought  by  lhe promise.  But there are people who still oe-  licve in the pre-election promise's of  a government or candidate, but usual}' to be disillusioned at a later  date. The riiore rash the promises  the greater vote-catcher the pledge is  sure to be.  The  Oliver   Government  are   turu-  . ing all ��������� their  heavy  artillery on  th  Nelson   constituency   being' desperat.  to win the .by-election there on March  22.   Every   minister  will   carpet   bag  ,the riding from  now    until    polling  - day,, and provincial business will go  glimmering while the ministers of .i  decrepit government are desperate lo  snatch an endorsation  from the Nel  son electors.  The contest will centre around (lie  question of building the Nelson-Yniir  highway; the outlet to the south and  Spokane City. Nelson    cifissens    have  long   looked   for   this   highway   cbn-  ���������'nection.'   Tlie Oliver government has  'Vbeen building sections of it, but like  everything  else   the, present   government at Victoria undertakes,  it is a  piecemeal job.    The end is never in  ,  sight,  just as the paving of the Pa-  ��������� "    cif'ic Highway is' not yet in sight af-  "ter three years, not'even well on.the  way to completion.  , ��������� Nelson is determined, there will be  ho half promises about the Ymir high  '   way.

'   '.'  -   If statistics could  be obtained,    1  would most probably be found that a  regards the volume of its .agricultur  i*l .literature    in   .'active  circulation  Canada considering her farming po  pulation,  stands ahead  of ali  coun  tries.    And there would riot be-th'e  large  output if ..there was' not a de  maud   for   it.    If  such 'be   the  cas  we may conclude that apart from economic  considerations, our prospect  for progress,  for more, efficient and  more profitable farming are good.

Fast passenger and mall trains,  operated on regular schedules, are  essential to the public weal and.  therefore, cannot be interfered witu  unnecessarily at grade crossings  without putting the blame for accidents, if any occur, upon those who  carelessly obstruct,  the 'right-of-way.  ,The serious danger, to which passengers and employees on trains arc  subjected on-account, of motor vehicles being carelessly driven.on grade  crossings is strikingly shown by accidents due to such causes. For instance, the engineer and' fireman  were killed and 27, passengers, 10  mail clerks and two express messengers were hurt on July 28,- 1921,  when an eastbound passenger train  struck a five-ton truck that had stalled at night on a Lincoln highway  grade crossing in Indiana. In addition-  to the .large number of people killed  and injured,%the railroad company's  property was' damaged to the extent  of aproximately .$50,000.  The, facts surrounding the accident  show that the truck, became stalled  on the track "through the fault of the  women on "the 'farm ;.ot; matters''per-'driver and 'that/ nothing was done to  taining to tlie. chemistry of agriculN*protect -the, lives   of  the  passengers  .ure.

" ,���������' There is scarcely a question in con  Of course Kenenth Campbell the' Ol  . ver government candidate, is riiaking  pledges.      But this is not god enough  for   Nelson.       As,'the   Nelson" News  points out, the people there have no  pledge" from :any member of .("he government that the rpad will be built  "' without  delay.

Grant, Market- "Jouimis-  sloner, at a meeting at Vernon last  week, is responsible for the following  remarks. Prefacing bis remarks by  showing the benefits derived by tho  soft fruit growers on -Vancouver Island and in the Fraser Valley by centralized selling,-Mr. Grant passed on  to the apple market. The direct cause  of the failure of" this market, he  charged, was'.'the competition among  the shippers from the Okanagan valley. At the beginning of the season  it "was understood that the shipping  houses had arranged a selling plan  which would hold prices steady and  had this been adhered to .there was  no doubt that. all. the available B. C.  fruit could have -been marketed on-  the prairies at price's bringing a good  return to the growers. The speaker was of the opinfon that the depression of the wlieat-market was not- to  any great extent" ..responsible for tho,  poor market and "in'0 support of this  mentioned that Washington' apples  are now selling on the prairies at bigger prices than had been received for  the B. C. product. The big fruit  market was not with the farmers, he  explained but was to be found in the  big cities and while B. C apples- had  been cleaned ��������� keen competition the Washington fruit prices were  being kept steady by co-operation  and stability in quotations.  Price Cutting;  Under tht selling- agreement, entered into by shippers, prices wore  such as to bring a good return to the  grower and an ample market was in  sight. The first evidence of price  cutting appeared.pi) October l, when  -MasJnrosh Reds were offered on tht  Calgary market,at $ 1.90 per crate,  or ten cents' under���������the price at which  jWealthies' were then selling, this of  i course making thehatteii- practically  a drug on. the'market and forcing all  I j fruit prices down. 'The speaker then  ! quoted from, an article in the Market  Bulletin warning,.against the serious  consequences of-such a practise in  which he said'that this was not the  ''acme" of-salesmanship and would  not.lend to make.-crates ''popular."  , Mr. ��������� Grant warned    his    audience  that: the outlook-for. next year    was  I even blacker than!   that of the   last  ��������� season' unless'' th'e growers    took the  .matter in-hand. ., There were   only  two methods of.cure either by co-operation, under one-big. organization or  iby the working'tpgether.. of the. or:  -! ganizatipns'already, in .the field;- The  ���������first seemed to. be-impossible and.-the  success,of .th.e'siefpnd alternative lay-  in the.hah(is,pfahe_grow'ers.:   If .any  organization   ',was '."proved.   have  broken.its    was,-in the  power of the growers .-to remedy   :it  by. refusing 'to .sell to. them.-   The'jje  was only one way;to.succeed and.that  was to get together arid to "stick   together. ��������� ���������'."' ~  Jobbers*buffer  The prairie jobbers had,, suffered  heavily from tactics pursued last  year and were, ��������� ready to co-operate  with, the shippers ;:in- holding .up the  markets, but they, must be assured  that loyalty will !be shown to any  agreements, entered into.
