SUCCESS  ist.  in,'*  e**s������  3=3  MET" WITH SLIGHT ACCIDENT  While a party of young people accompanied oy'Mr. Thomas-were driving towards Sumas on Wednesday of  this week the buggy gear broke down  frightening the horse which immediately tried to make-a getaway.

The travellers were obliged  to walk back to town.

Robertson, manager of the  Okanagan United Growers, Ltd., says  the Vernon News, who with J. E.  Reekie, president of the Central re  turned Saturday from a two weeks'  tour to Calgary and. other distributing points east of the mountains..  " "I found in the pairie cities, an  increasing satisfactory interest in"  British- Columbia fruit" said Mr. R.  Robertson, apparently based on our  improvd pack- and grade, which is  giving better satisfaction' to consumers htan formerly."  Preference is Growing  '"On tlie part of the trade I found  a disposition generally to give prefer  ence to Okanagan fruit over that of  our competitors. With the probable  large increase in production this  year, it behooves every grower to  use the greatest possible care in the  handling of his orchard with special  attention to spraying and tinning of  fruit, in order that we may be able  to get out a pack even more' satisfactory, than that of last season.  "Everywhere on tho prairio's 1  found a very general interest in 13.  C. conditions, and in tho Okanagan  Valley in particular. Our hold on  tho trade,is,growing and iii order to  increase our prestigo we should devote every attention to tho production of fruit in high quality, rather  than to a mere growth in the quantity of our shipments."  and the establishment there of model  industrial district with firstclass rail  way and lake transport facilities: the  deepening of the inner harbour and  building'of new docks: and the^con-  struction of a beautiful , 12-mile  driveway, extending along the entire water-front,' with ��������� a protected  channel for small craft for the whole  distance, lagoons, parks; islands,, a-  musenient grounds, bathing beaches  and everything' that could \>e desired  for.summer pleasure. It is expected  that'-the' entire project will be com-  pleleed in 1920 ancl at an estimated  cost of-upwards of $19,000,000, and  when completed it should place Toronto in an enviable position, giving  it one of tho finest harbours on the  Great Lakes, stimulating its indust-'  rial and coiu'merclal ovi-ansion, and  i-rovii'i-J-g its people \*i'..h uni\*iallt<i  recreation facilities at their ' very  doors. **  PROVINCIAL  NOTES  Tho Nelson Agricultural and Indus  trial society are asking the city council of the city by the lake permission  to place a merry-go-round    in    Con  naught park.

WATEII FRONT DEVELOPMENT  "Water-front Development' will  form the therae of discussion at one  session of the Internationa! Conference on City Planning, to be held at  Toronto on May 2 5-26 next. R. S.  Gourley, representative of the Board  of Trade on the Toronto , Harbour  Commission, will give an address oh'  this subject which should be of interest, not only to the citizens of Toronto, but to the whole country. Our  harbours are national gateways, and  the Dominion Government is expected to contribute over $6,090,000 to  this particular project.  The works now in progressat Toronto should prove of national importance in another respect also,  namely, by putting before "other cities  an example of what may be done by-  systematic planning for water-front  development. The works proposed  are of three kinds: (1) Industrial Development: (2) Commercial and  Dock Development: (3 Park and also  Boulevard improvements.
