Or in  other words the forty, odd million  dollars spent iu building it thus far  hus been wasted money when we consider the progress made in developing the province.  The P/'G. E. has been in    the pro-  - vincial political melting pot. so long  and has been discussed so much that  everyone is more or less familiar  with the history of    this road, under  'the late and the-present government.  ���������When the Liberals came into power  thore appears to have been' an agreement to complete and equip the road  for six million dollars more than the  cost up to that time.  ���������   /With the idea   that   the      public,  money was not   being   properly   expended the    Liberals'   made a    bold  'dash for the-methods being adopted.  It ended by Oliver being    made minister of- railways, receiving a report,  made at the instance of the Vancou-  . ver Board, of Trade,   and   again    the  starting of construction,    after    the  .voting of, public moneys.  -Forty million, dollars of provincial  ;   money-has.been,voted to   this, hope-  -��������� less,', according - to* Sullivan,.  railway  undertaking,    and.now tlie abandon-  \- "ment, '������������������The.-effecton the .credit of the  ���������;,province,--cannot be that outsiders will'  have any high ideals of our financing  ,i ',or the mature judgment-of   our politicians. . -   , ' ���������  It is true that the   late .

There is a good deal of truth m  this If all Canadians will persibl  in singing "How dry I am," as' t'ai  provincial chorus and leading American citizens direct to the -liquor  stores rather than show them the advantages .of their land, their climate  and their scenery, it is not to be wondered at if the strangers across the  line come to', believe that this is the  transcendent advantage we have to  offer travellers and prospective resi-  dens. ,  Bartering alcohol for gold is excellent business for the    province    but  " -it'Js scarcely a thing   to     brag   too  . much about.���������Comox Argus.

Immigration officials state that the influx  for the season definitely is "on."  All - these settlers will go on , the  land in Manitoba and the western  provinces.

A purty of 50 immigrants arrived from Roscoe, Minnesota, and  ���������was accompanied by 9 cars of effects. All are bound for the western provinces.

C, Aug. 29, 1922.  .Apples: This market is glutted  with early varieties a large part of  the receipts ueing in a son condition.  Prices listed are top prices for good  fruit. Other stuff ranges down to as.  low aB 25^. , The presence of large  quantities of the lower grades has  had the effect of creating a draggj-  market for all "grades.  Cra'bapples have also weakened and  are down from 2f>? to 50c\ The movement Is very poor,  Bartlett Pears range between $2.00  and $3.00, the price being according  to grade and condition. Average quality of the receipts has been very good  this year although receipts have been  loo soft to sell to the best, advantage  26 cars have been imported from  which S were condemned for Coddling Moth.  Plums: The market is loaded up  with fruit of every conceivable variety and quality. Tho Lower Mainland Is a heavy contributor. Prices  naturally show a wide range running  between 50<i and $2.00.  Peaches are lower, moving out al  between 7r>tf and $ 1.2ft . Apricots  are steady at !M.3f>. -  Dealing In seasonable vegetables  continues to be listless, sales being  difficult to make at the most normal  prices. So much is offered in variety  and prlceB are so reasonable t.iat  purchasers seem to be surfeited.    ���������  Tho tomato deal is in a bad way.  Although 7r>f> to $1.00 is quoted    yet  ��������� peddlers ,are purchasing stoc"k at  .merely nominal. Such stock is usually soft and only fit for speedy dis7  uosal and in addition must usually  De picked over. Prices obtained in  .nany cases are very little more than  Che value of the containers.' -  Potatoes: This market is slipping  Umost imperceptably. , No stocks  ire held, everything being on a hand  o mouth basis.   We are.yet a month  ��������� uvuy from the digging season of the  nain crop, when the    market should  . itart to crystallize. Last year's ex-  experience does not tend to encourage dealers to store ��������� heavily as the"  market did not. advance' sufficiently  to pay storage charges, and cover the  cost of shrinkage and picking over.  Eggs; - This market-is' very firm  and advanced to 36<J over the week  end.. Some Washington eggs are  now coming in and find a market at  35^. Storage stocks are as yet untouched as to sell on the present market would entail a loss..

Canals, highways branch.  In a series of exiviiments witn  average conditions lo find' the vari-  our resistances, twico the distance  was made for tlie siuiio.' amount of  gasoline used in travelling pver puvod  surface than in travelling over the.  improved road_ oa.ith. In other  words,' the saving of gasoline as between these two types of roads is  approximately oO per cen,L  Every motorist is called upon to  pay; "bad roads'" taxes in the form of  repair expenses and .other necessary"  expenses in the operation of a. motor.  So every operator of an automobile is  interested in road conditions. The  extent, of this interest is seen when  it is' stated that, assuming 'that tho  average operator travels, in a season  5000' miles, if he makes, say, 10, I f���������  or 20 miles per gallon of gasoline, at  '40 cents a gallon, will amount to a,  sum ranging from $100 to $200. It  is clear that if all the roads ov-bt  which he operates his car were uniformly good, his annual saving for  this' item alone would amount to $50  at least.  Should all'the main travelled roads  of tho Dominion be given hard surfaces, the annual saving to tho 460,-  000 odd registered owners of motor  vehicles in Canada,' assuming that  all users participated in the- benefit  of the improvements,'and having no  regard to savings from, lubrication  and repair expenses, would amount  to   $23,000,000.

Thursday and Friday   were    given  over .to the discussion of matters per  taining to newspaper    business,   and  the election of officers.  On Friday at the conclusion of all  business the editors' were taken for a  drive through the district immediately surrounding Vernon, later o.i  joining the ladies at the Country  Club, where lunch was, served. A  pleasing feature at the Club l was  the excellent display of fruit by the  Okanagan United Growers, with tlie  notice prominently showing, "Please,  help yourself."    What a feast!

RICH RANCHER .IX.FILMS  "Lefty" Flynn, former   Yale   athlete and All-Ainerican fullback,    was  not entirely dependent on tlie weekly  pay check from Paramount while he  was working in  the George Melford  production "The .Women Who Walked Alone," featuring Dorothy Dalton,  which    comes    to    the     Abbotsford  Theatre next    Saturday,    September  16th.    Mr. Flynn owns a  ranch  in     northwestern  stocked with fine    cattle,  some    highly    pedigreed  stock.    However, he likes  in  the pictures.       The    cast of this  Paramount picture    includes    Milton  Sills as leading    man,    and    Wanda  Hawley.    Will M. Ritchey wrote   the  story.  2600 acre  Colorado,  including  breeding  the work  J. I<3. Johnson, Invermere, shipped  one crate Black Currants and one  crate Red Currants on August 26th.  The Black Currants were the best  seen on the Calgary market this year.  The Red Currants were also large  'sized. ISach crate sold wholesale for  $4.00. The Vernon Fruit Co. handled them.  Mr. .Johnson's ranch is up on    the  mountain side, and this he claims    is  what brings his    currants    in    late.  These currants are worthy of passing  notice.      There is' always a   good demand for late currants, and gooseberries of a large, clean kind. The mountain side ranches in    Kootenay    can  bring home good money for this class  of produce.      We would   recommend  the  shallow  pint  hallock instead  of  the strawberry deep hallock to    ship  them in.    There is   no    demand   for  small scrub stuff, even    if it is    lato  in arriving on the market. We strongly urge Windermere farmers to   produce currants of the   size   and    late  ripening sort, they .will be a splendid  specialty for them in addition to'their,  high grade potatoes.
