AfAKKETIXCi  AAD  FINANCING  ��������� (From the Markets Bulletin)  Largo quantities of apples, are arriving at prairie'-points from !'J. C.  Some were bought in advance, and  some, especially fall apples, wore not  it would seem that, this market is  glutted,, hut such is not actually the  ease.  This is harvest time in 13. ,C. Apples are being picked, packed and  shipped in the apace of six weeks,  that will have to supply tho prairie  and other markets for six months.  , As fast as cars can he obtained these  apples are forwarded and the unsold  offered for sale. The apparent, plen-  titudo of supply makes buyers tho  boss of the situation and his price  lias to,, be met which is, often much  below the price that would be set by  the law of supply and demand.  The annual consumption of apples  on the prairies is about 2,500 cars,  mostly No. I. These at .$2.00 per  box and 75 0 boxes per car represent  a value of $3,75.0,000. The capital  involved in the prairie supply-of apples is therefore about $3,750,000,  and all sales are usually on a cash  basis.  The jobber has to finance the future for six months ahead.    Jobbers  are not rich men and the margin of  profit is not enough to do' this.    It is  the   growers'  and  shippers   business  tO'Store the apples at B.C. points ana  feed the market.     In this way business can' be done on a cash basis. If  for .reasons of,weather severity, it is  decided best to store on prairies, then  the-jobbers are the men to look after  it.    In such case credit must be arranged on cash and 30, 6 0 and 90-day  notes, just as is done in other business enterprises.    This system rather upsets the organization's present  ,plan   of   immediate   returns.    |If   we  are dealing with reliable people, ana  there is no reason why we should not  be, we can get arrangement with the  bank to discount the notes, therefore  the risk would bo nothing in comparison   with  the  loss  taken  when  the  flood of apples arrives, and are at the  mercy of the buyers who    have    to  figure on so many chances that his investment is purely a gamble.  The unorganized districts suffer  most in times like these, as organizations have their sales made in "advance. Storage in B.C. is only possible when growers are willing to organize and finance their own business  PERSONALS  .

We prefer feeding the market from  the growers' storehouses in B.C. The  alternative has its good points, borne  thing along these lines must be done  to change the present all round unsatisfactory conditions which will annually get'worse as the supply gets  heavier.  SUGAK  (From  Markets  Bulletin)  From  behind all  the  promises  of  adequate sugar supply in the Canadian Northwest to take care of the B.  C.   fruit  crop  comes  the  news  from  every point west of    Winnipeg    that  there is notenough  sugar for ordinary domestic purposes, and that the  peaches, prunes and crab apples are  selling at any price.    The market is  normally undersupplied    with    fruit  and the demoralization is due entirely to the sugar shortage.    The British Columbia Fruit Growers and the  Western Jobbers have been compelled to carry heavy losses due to the  present state in the Canadian sugar  supply-..    The refineries have blamed  the strike, and have given other reasons which leaves doubt in our minds  that the real reason has been made  public.     We   would   like   the   Board  of'Commerce to investigate whether  the tempting export price carried a-  tvay the refiners far enough to forget  to  provide  for  the  ordinary     home  supply.     Whatever may be the cause  of the shortage the want of sugar has  caused the loss of. thousands of dollars to the fruit trade.  We would also like to hear from  those responsible for the sugar order  to the West, what proportion of the  Eastern sugar actually arrived in the  West, and also is (here any sugar being exported now?  spending the week in New Westminster and Vancouver.

J'������l 0'  THE NEW  VICTORY .LOAN  "o"iice again  the Dominion  Government-   is  "asking the people through the press and by  other means to subscribe to a Dominion Loan  The people of Canada, particularly tne people of British Columbia are in a very much *  "better position this year to subscribe to a loan'  than during the first loan which the government rsked from the people and although the  amount may be'considered large yet there id  but .little doubt that the.amount will be subscribed for when the final count is taken into  consideration.  During all the calls Cor loans the people ot  this district have done exceedingly well, and  now that there are no more war demands on  'the people's pockets all are in a better position than ever to subscribe; and especially so  after such a successful season.  ' BOWSER, THE LEADER.  ��������� At the Conservative convention held in  Vancouver this week Mr. VV. J. Bowser, the  present opposition leader in the local house,  was chosen leader of the party in .British Col-  . u'mbia. He was the, unanimous choice of the  party judging from all reports, no other name  being mentioned that would accept the responsibility for the party.  Mr. Bowser has had more abuse, from his  own party than any other, public man of tho  province for the past twenty-five years, and it  was probably for this reason, mor.e than any  other that today, he sits in the cold shades of  opposition. Politically he lias held a rather-  awkward position, especially during the years  when the Conservative idol, the late. Sir  Richard was at the helm, and when Mr. Bowser became premier it was during a period of  when the country was at war and the plain  sailing of the past years were a thing of the  past. People were anxious for a change and  the Bowser government became the goat, but  the successors did no better, and when the  next election comes around the cry will be  for "a change" again.  HAS FAITH ]'N PROVINCE  There can be no question of the advanced  legislation, which the late Bowser government  ' fathered during the one session when Bowser  was premier���������legislation which the province  today is receiving the benefit. The optimistic  spirit of that legislation showed that he had  faith in the future of the province. His  speech at the Conservative convention shows  that he still carries with him that same faith  In the future of the province and if ever entrusted again with the administration of the  affairs here would carry out a- policy for development of the province.  It is not the man, so much, as the policy  that the people of the province want. The  name may be Bowser, any other name would  Bound just as well, but the province to keep  pace with the march of humanity and attain  the highest acme of perfection of a good place  to live in, must have a vigorous policy, and a  well denned policy that will bring ivospcrily  10 the province.  'M.;\V  WESTMINSTER ON THE M  i *  Once attain New Westminster is on the map  as far a.s������the Fraser Valley is concerned and  the present support of the'exhibition shows  that the Fraser Valley is loyal to the oldest  towiixon the Fraser. All roads lead, to New  Westminster this week, and the success of the  fair there this week shows that the Fraser  Valley has gained some headway during the  war, and as" the lands become more thickly  settled the greater will grow the exhibition at  the Royal City. ' -     .  The city on thhe Fraser need not be jealous  of its bigger city on Burrard Inlet;as nothing  that Vancouver' can do will take away from  .New Westminster I he fact that it is the capital  of (he Fraser Valley. . '        '  Each city has its place and its usefulness.  Do i.t now and do .it well.  Prices will never come down so Jong as extravagant buyprs keep them up.  PKLNCK  RKV1.HWIXG  TH'H   HOY  SCOUTS  AT  THE  FAIR  e of the  eatest Helps  to Good  The Alien Question  Authorities say that the ports of Europe are  thronged with immigrants eager to come to  this country, but that most'of these are undesirables, seeking to dodge the burdens of their  own people and likely to foment trouble if  allowed to come here. For this reason greater restriction of immigration during the next  few years-should be urged.  Badly as Canada needs settlers to develop  the country, there is more need of a protect--  ���������ive immigration policy .if the abuses of Canada's hospitality are not to go on.  The first step in such a policy is the shifting  of these people in their own countries,through-  the establishment of bureaus in the great  centres abroad which shall examine,every applicant for immigration to Canada so carefully  as to prevent the questionable from even  heading this way.  The next step is the better'handling of the  situation here. ��������� It might be a good idea to  have distribution of the immigrants when  they arrive so as to prevent the formation of  large racial settlements. This is easier said  than done, perhaps. The natural trend of  any human being is toward his kind. Even if  separated originally they will tend to get together, and the prevention of this leads to big  questions of right and of restraint.  Probably a better solution is a more vigorous Canadianization work right in these foreign settlements. The alien is not the only  one who does not mix. What of his Canadian  host who handles him with tongs because he is  an alien, instead of grasping him by the hand  as an embryo Canadian? Who calls him such  names as "Guinea" "Wop" and exploits him to  the limit? The immigrant will cling to his  old nationality until somebody shows him a  better one.  Get only the good ones in Canada and then  make them glad they came. Then, if in spite  of all efforts, they remain obnoxiously alien,  send them home.  ��������� Now is the time to register your vote, because just as sure as you don't there will be  both a'Dominion, and a provincial election and  well���������enough'said you will lose that opportunity you wanted to put the government  out or to put them in.'  Telephoning is regarded as so easy that  ���������many people do not take the trouble to see  that they telephone correctly. One should  speak directly into the instrument, with the,,  lips but a short distance away. When that is  done, the voice does not need to be loud, and  moreover the person at the other end can hear  .distinctly.  When children do so much telephoning, it  'would be well to instruct them to telephone  proper'; y. ���������  BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE Co.

Recasting of the ��������� Conservative  policy to further encourage the establishment, of shipbuilding with particular reference to steel ships in order to establish a British Columbia  merchant marine fleet.  2. Every aid and encouragement  which isreasonable to first prove the  presence and extent of iron ore bodies by systematic exploration in order to.load  to the establishment  of  steel in''.u.strii?s and to co-operate in  every way with the Dominion and en-  (.'(juragc; assistance from that source.  3.

A luvival of tho Conservative  policy to borrow mone-y and in turn  loan at a low rate of interest to farm  oi s  by   way  of agricultural   loans.  ft.' Assistance by way, of guarantee  or otherwise to establish . cooling  plains or refrigerators at certain  points and in the cities to help, lb  producer and also reduce flic high  cost of  living.  10. The same policy to bo followed out as regards the operating o;  markets in the large centres.  11, An aggressive policy by on-  ageut-geiieral   in  'Loudon  to  encour  WHEN, on the morning of November 11th, 1918, the guns were hushed and  glad tidings flashed across the world, there followed with the Nation's.  Prayer of Thanksgiving, one yearning query, which found echo in the faster beating hearts of wives, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and sweethearts. ��������� That  query was, "How soon will our boy be home?'' And, from France and Flanders,  from Italy and Egypt, from Palestine and from far-off Siberia, there came an  answering echo, "How soon, how soon, may wo go home?"  CANADA caught the spirit of these longings, and at once resolved to satisfy'  them. It was an appalling task. Shipping was tragically scarce. The com-  position of/the Army of Occupation had not then been settled. And other parts of  the Empire as well as Canada were looking for the speedy return "of their men.  THE problem was this. The half-million men that Canada had overseas had  taken more than four years to' transport to. the field of'battle. To bring  them home in a few months was a gigantic undertaking���������one to' tax all Canada's  ingenuity and resources. Canada solved, the problem, but it meant crowding into  a few short months, an expense for demobilization which it was impossible to foresee.  THEN, too, besides the sentimental aspect of the necessity for bringing the men  home quickly the economic side could not be overlooked.   That was, to transform efficiently and speedily the nation's army of fighters into a national army of  workers.  -$���������       A~       *$-       -<h       +  Need  Divides  Itself m  Two Parts  Obligations  to Soldiers  Gratuities  The answer-to the question "Why  does Canada need another Victory-  Loan?" divides itself into two parts.  (a) To finish paying the expenses  of demobilization, and the obligations we still ov/e to our soldiers.  (b) To provide national working capital.  The   obligations   to    soldiers   include:  That   already   incurred    cost    of  bringing home troops from overseas. ^  The payment of all soldiers still undcmcbilizcd. This  includes more than 20,000 sick and wounded who are  still in hospital, and who of course remain en the Army  payroll till discharged.  The upkeep of hospitals, and their medical and nursing  staffs, until the need for them is ended.  These three items alone will use up at least $200,000,000  of the Victory Loan 1919.  There" is also the gratuity which  has been authorized, and'hii-3 been  and is being paid to assist soldiers to tide over the period  between discharge and their re-adjustment to civil life.  For this purpose alcne, $61,000,000 must be provided  out of the Victory L~an 1919, in addition to the  $59,000,000 already paid out of the proceeds of the  Victory Loan 1918.  t nr\A Furthermore,  soldiers  who  desire  o        i ,        "to   become   farmers   may,   under  Settlement the Soldiers' Land Settlement  Act, be loaned money by Canada with which to purchase land, stock and implements. The money so  advanced will be paid back; meantime each loan is  secured by a first mortgage. Up to August 15th,  29,495 soldiers had applied for land under the terms  of'this'Act; and 22,231 applications had been investigated, and the qualifications of the applicant approved.  For this purpose Canada this year requires $24,000,000.  Wk^cHrimml        For   this   work   which,   with   the  V OCatlOnai       Vocaticnal Training and. Soldiers'  I raining Service    Departments,    embraces  the  major  activities  of the  Department  of ^Soldiers'  Civil Re-establishment, an appropriation of $57,000,000  is necessary.  National  "Working  C  aoita  c  These national expenditures are war expenses.    They  wiil  be  accepted  readily by' every citizen  who  gives  thought to the task which Canada faced following the  ' Armistice, and to the success with which she has met it.  Canada needs national working  capital, so that she may be able  to sell on credit to Great Britain  and our Allies the products of  our farms, forests, fisheries,  mines and factories.  You may ask "Why sell to them if they can't pay cash?"  The answer is, "Their orders are absolutely essential  to the continuance sf our agricultural and industrial  prosperity.'-  The magnitude of theoe orders and the amount of employment thus created, will depend upon the success  of the Victory Loan 1919.  Tlie U WllY "  farmers and manufacturers  (and  ������ *(T^      A' *- that mc^uc^es the workers on these  Ol  V/reull orders) must   be   paid   cash   for  Loan.8 their products. Therefore, Canada  * must borrow   money    from   her  citizens to give credit, temporarily, to Great Britain and  cur Allies. Actually, no money will pass out of Canada.  If Canada docs not give credit, other countries will;  and they will get the trade, and have the employment  that should be ours, to distribute amongst their workers.  And remember, we absolutely need these orders to maintain employment. If we don't finance them business  will feel the depression, employment will not be as  plentiful, and conditions everywhere will be adversely  affected.  For TranS-        Money must also be available to  carry on the nation's shipbuilding  portStlOn programme, and other transport  ation development work.

In  Boston shoe clerks and dealers testified emphatically that $6 and $7  shoes were a drug on the market and  one dealer stated.that when the same  shoes were placed on sale at $10 and  $12 a pair.they found ready buyers.  Dealers- in Canada have testified to  practically the same thing and there  is every reason to believe such.a condition exists among quite a large portion of the people, both in this country and the United States.  ' This condition of mind, for such it  must be, should provide the basis for  much study and thought on the part  of psychologists.

THE DISTRICT KXHI HITS  AT THE ROYAL CITY  KAIR  Visitors at the Royal City exhibition evince,a keen interest in tho displays iu the Agricultural building. It  has always been a leading feature,  and this year's dir-play. considering  the exceptionally dry season, is one  to popularize the big show with "the  outlying sections of the province.  Splendid displays are seen from Mission, Richmond, Sardis, LangloyC; Mur  cjuitlam, Penticton, Surrey, Kamloops. They give visitors a comprehensive idea of tho fertility of the  province. On this floor, too, is about  the best of flowers ever seen here,  especially in the professional classes.  The fruit is excellent and most attractive. There ia good competition  for the bread prizes and large classes  of butter. But the chief display is  that of honey. Never has such an  extensive display been seen in this  province, and it will well repay inspection by those interested in apiary  in the best province in Canada for  this branch of agriculture.  JAMES'   CAMP   BURNED   DOWN  shoes that dealers , can easily offer  for $6 and $7 and still make a liberal profit, there is something wrong  with the buyers think tank; there is  a lose screw somewhere; his mental  machinery is rattling, and the quicker it is tightened up by means of the  educational wrench, the better it will  be for everyone.  A student made the statement not  long since that the people of the  world have gone crazy and some of  the things done these days certainly  tend to give strength to that belief.  For humanity's sake, it might be  well for each one of us to take a  few moments occasionally and look  ourselves over carefully to see if we  are suffering from some peculiar  halucination.���������Merritt Herald.

This Mr.  Mcdonald apparently lives in Vancou  ver and we wonder if ho is the samy  man who stood upon the floor of the  house and called upon Ood to witness  his statement that he had not. taken  $25,000 from the Canadian Northern  Railway, or words    to      that    effect.  The executive of the Provincial  Teachcrs'-Alliance met in Calgary on  Saturday last. A large increase in  membership is announced and the  executive feels that' it will only be a  matter of time before the Alliance  will include every teacher in the province. The Alliance is now in a pos  ition to urge upon all school boards  the adoption of a new self-renewin&  contract which provides for the teach  er more security of tenure of his position by making it impossible tc dismiss him except for proved inefficiency or misconduct, or to transfer him  without his consent.  Tho new contract further embodies  a provincial wage schedule, the main  I features of which is a minimum wage  I for all public school teachers of $1,-  |200 per annum and liberal.increases  j for experience and efficiency.      This  | minimum is $36 0 in advance of the  present statutory  minimum and  has  been adopted with a view to bettering more especially the status of the  teacher in rural schools.

A spark from the engine started the  fire going and it went with such ra-  padity that in a short time the whole  countryside was ablaze. The camp is  an entire loss although none ,of the  men are missing or suffered injury.  The fiire spread east, north south and  west, and taking with it Baynes niill  near Silverdale.  On Sunday morning a . visit was  made to the scene of the fire, as near  as we could get, and although nothing was left of the camp, the trees to  the west and east could be heard falling. The fire extended to Steelhead  and several of the settlers had a very  narrow escape. The damage to the  camp is estimated, according to the  manager, "Jesse" James at about  $100,000.  The work of rebuilding has begun  and until the. men have a home again  they are staying at the Matsqui Hotel.*  The work of rebuilding the Silver  Creek bridge, which was also burned  has  been  already begun.
