Editor and Proprietor  WILL CAMPBELL BE THE  LIBERAL CANDIDATE  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER lo,   1922       ������$ ,  '--^-  ' The visit of the minister of public works for the dominion  to the Nicomen Island on Monday is one that it is hoped will  bring results ro.the'district. We have faith in the 'sympathy' of  Dr. King towards the reclamation, scheme. From his remarks we  are led to believe that he has not. told us his full mind in the  matter, and that he has been giving the question far greater 'and  deeper thought than,he led us to believe at the banquet table.  A very much broader view of his matter is being taken nowadays than was a few years ago. The. more men study the  matter, the more they become convinced that a rampage of the  Fr- ser River starting at McDonald's Landing would mean very  probably great lossf'not only to the district but to probably the  whole of Canada.  The people of Nicomen Island have been enthused over the  matter so often that this last time they have looked calmly on.  hoping Cliat some good.will follow in the train of endeavors to  have,the island protected;, This paper believes that in the hands  of Hon.Dr! King the matter is'how nearer a solution than it has  been for some time in the past. It is realized that the island is  weil able to pay its way if given a fair chance. May the day of  the fair.chance be not far distant is the wish of every person.  Then it is hoped that the day of a fair chance will prove highly  successful.  Say, didn't Dr! King put Mr. Munro in "jake" when he told  about just'getting half way dowln the lobby of the. House of  Commoriswheh he met Munro and the greeting was, what about  Nicomen Island?  It begins to look as if tho by-election in Vancouver made necessary by  the resignation of    M. A. Macdbnald  will be^fceld'thia year sometime by-  fore the coming fall session.. The  wise birds around the capital city  "are predicting that Honest John is  in favor of accepting the challenge  hurled-out, by the leader of the oppo  sition and bring-on the by-electionvat  an _ early "date.  , Friends of Mr. J. A.. Campbell,  president of the Vancouver District'  artel City Liberal Association, are uig-  Ing him to accept the Liberal nomination, and should he decide ' to do  so, Mr. Campbell'would be assured of  th^ undivided support of the whole  party. As solicitor for the Coast  Range Steel Co., Ltd., Mr. Campbell  has been a tireless worker, for tho  development of the iron and steel industry in British Columbia.  Mr. Campbell has' been a resident,  of Kitsilano for a number of years.���������  Kitsilano Times.   .  MEANING OF THE  WORD OKANAGAN  The name of "punk dyke" was applied by Hon. E. D. Barrow  to the dyke puilt years ago on Nicomen Island. May no man, not  even a politician, ever be able to apply that term to the present  undertaking of the provincial government along the Vedder, in  which Mr. Barrow is so much interested. ������  ..'-"What-is the meaning of the word  Okanagan?"  And there is no Indian ,name so  little understood as the name Okanagan. Isaac Harris, the official in-  erpreter of the Spallumucheen Indians, says* it means "a place," while  R. E. Gosnell of Victoria, no mean  authority, refers to the word "Okon-'  iigan''���������an Indian name Ukanakan-2,  .meaning people of Ukana, the affix  'ahe'.and 'ene' meaning people of as  in Spokane Spallumucheen Similika-  ih'eeh  and Tulam'een."  Some .months' ago Mr. L. Norris,  gbtfenYmeut agent at Vernon some  30 years or more, published his version of the word's meaning, saying in  part:  "When Jacques Cartier landed on  the shores of the'Gulf of. St. Lawrence in. 1535, fourteen years after  the Spanish conquest of Mexico, he  found several words in use by the Indians there which we have here.  among'others "Chinook" and "Kiili-  ,'nick"���������-the latter meant the inner  bark of the willow used for smoking.  To most people", the connecting or 'disconnecting bf'a"  telephone seems a'simple operation of installihg-or removing the instrument. As a matter of fact,-in ���������every case it  necessitates changes in the cables and wires' overhead or  underground. It also necessitates changesin the. central  office wires and switchboard connections; in subscriber;'  accounts and directory listings; and frequently.requires  new "drop" lines from open wires or cables. . .The problems of station movement are among .the large problems  of telephone service. Because of the double operation of*  disconnecting and reconnecting, the work involved is  often twice as great as in.the case of new subscribers.  British Columbia Telephone Company  Apples and pears are being fed to the   cattle   on   Vancouver  Vancouver Island;^ and yet if,,the   truth   were   known,   many    ^     ^      ^        families in Victoria, and even-Vancouver,,are without pears and i^'has the "same meaning here today  apples at reasonable prices.       Is proper distribution'at a stand- * Had Cartier   continued his   journey  up the St. Lawirence   to   where   the  SERVICE  STATION  in your old car iri part payment  for a 490 Chevrolet Special  payments for the balance.  3V  still?  Exchanges are arriving on our desk in goodly number, all  tellirigabout the peaches of the Okanagan, and we would not be  surprised if" the said: peaches are more abundantly advertised  now than ever before; One thing we are convinced of and that  is tl at Okanagan1 peaches could not be grown in the Fraser Valley to such -perfection.   That's admitting some.  It is wonderful how the present government is trying to  reach .the .hearts of the people and, remain there even after the  shades of opposition have been reclaimed. What is there in a  name? Ask members"of the provincial cabinet. We'have the  town of Oliver. We have the Oliver boulevard (anywhere in B.  C. where.the driver of an auto feels like cussing, a government  road)., We~tiave7ttie: Oliver school. We have the Dr. McLean  school.

A  pioneer 'isthe real tiling while a politician may be  only'" V passing thought���������nothing substantial about  him. while a-pioneer generally has lived for the benefit.of mankind/ '     ���������  It seems "a pity that the provincial minister Df public works  was iiot present at Nicomen Island. He would have had the  pleasure of real good company and the privilege of first hand information-regarding a question oi' ~eal importance to his depart-  mentf'and to the people of the Fraser Valley. When the matter  Tomes up it would serve him well to have a thorough knowledge  of Nicomen 'Island matters by having gone over the district and  that part of the river immediately adjacent thereto. We all regret  he was unable to be present.  Province of Quebec now is he would  probably have encountered in the  name of the Oke Indians the root ot  bur word Okanagan..  "The word, is, I understand, pronounced locally with a strong accent  on the letter "K",almost as if it wera  a: word of two syllables. It means  the' Supreme Being and is common  .to'a number of Indian, languages.  Omllia is.; derived;, fro.in it.and I-suggest' tih'a't Oklahoma is also.  In -the word 'Okanagan' we may  have a very old word indeed and perhaps a vestige or trace of an ancient  people who in their days were at  least superior to the aborigines' of B.  C.^as we know them. It may also be  .found' that our American friends ao  crbss the. border line who make use  of the term "God's Country" so often  in'reference to.their' own country  were not the' first to use it by a long  shot."���������Okanagan Commoner.

Questions and Answers  the  How'To Increase Church Collections���������When the time comes  that the collection plateicomes back with odd coppers and bruised  nickels, business could be made to rush by following the example  of the negro preacher who in his pulpit one Sunday said he had  a lew rehia'rks to-make, before the'collection basket made its per-  igrinattion. "Now, brethern and sisters," he began "there is just  one b'rethern here that is untrue.to his church, untrue to his  Lord'and worst of all, untrue to his wife. Unless he puts a $5  bill iritc-the contribution box, I will be compelled to call his  na?ne:^out.";  When the basket had returned and a recount had been  made'; the books showed forty-two $5 bills and a $2 bill with a  note mimed saying, "I will hand you the other $3 in the morning.

Stumped the Country on the National  Policy.    He called his Layout    a  "Steaitf Printing Office."   He was   a  Crusty OM'diss, and Didn't    believe  in Making Change.      He had    heard  about these New    Fangled    Systems  that some Printers had put into ,thsir  Plants to tell them How Much   their  Printing; was Costing them    to Tu-r'n  Out, butcttd^df~tftes%'J-Co'ritrap'tions  for him.    He could Run his Business  without them;.and even if he was Usually a Little Shy on Ready Cash,and  had to Scratch Like all Possessed   to  Pay the Hands, he wasn't   going    In  Boost His Prices, and    Perhaps"Lose  the Trade he had.    Besides he didn't  Believe that Printers Could Get    the  Prices that some of    them"   Claimed  they did.

C.  . fcKEPAKiNG   BEES FOR   .WINTER  Now that the honey crop of 1922  is practically,all gathered it is time  for the beekeeper to', begin his preparations, for the crop of his bees in  the early .spring just after coming  out of winter' quarters, and this condition in tirn-i'depends; upon the preparations .given for the winter. -  " Three^things art essential l'or r:if-  cessful wintering; namely, strong colonies consisting, mainly of-young bees  sufficient wholesome store'"?' and adequate protection from the cold: To  neglect any one of these factors is to  invite failure!  ��������� ���������  . By strong colonies we mean populous colonies. A colony cannot- be  too strong- in bees- for' the ^.winter.  These bees must be comparatively  young in order to live through the  winter until .-brood. ..rearing is safely  commenced the following spring. To  get-'the-hiY.es-filled with young- -,tees  every colony .must be behe.aded-jwith a  young, vigorous queen during August  and September; therefore, all colonies containing? old' ph"''failing queens-  should be requee'ned not; later than  the last-veek in July. "Colonies'with  bee's:-covering less than eight full-sized Laiigstroth frames at..-, the b.egimir  ing of October, should be united.'  A colony of bees should have not  less "than forty pounds of stores ' to  carry' it through tlie winter until  new honey Is coming in in the spring.-  The'honey stored in "the brood chamber is usually of uncertain qualii.y  and deficient.in; quantity; it should,  therefore be sup'plcmnntcd with eith-  ther .good - clover or' buckwheat,  honey, ,o,r, better, still," with a syrup  made "of-two parts of pure, granulated sugar to one part water. The colony should' be" g.Ve'h''enough' honey or  sugar mads intl>" syrup to-bring the  stores up t������ the required ��������� weight.  Even if a colony has enough natural  atoms in the brood chamber it is advisable to'giye it at least ten pounds  ot sugar ,ma<ie into|syrup in "order to  postpone"or hiinimize the consumption of poor hoiley and thus delay ii  possible .attack of dysentery.    '  There' are two methods- of protecting the'bees durihg'"th'e winter: either  ,to place them in a cellar or to pack  them in cases.' ''For outside wintering  the bees Should be'placed'in the cases1  during/the latter part of September  or early in October and should be fed  the required ahiount :of stores as rapidly as possible, then the top packing is put in place. These bees will  require no further attention until the  following spring.

NEW PAVING ON  HIGHWAY URGED  The recently paved portion-of-the  Pacific Highway from the Johnston ,  road to the Serpentine flats was opened for traffic yesterday. The news"  that the road was opened evidently  spread quickly for soon an incessant  stream of cars going towards Clover-  dale was on the road. For the next  few days' light traffic only will* be  allowed to.- use the paving.  The fill  over the Serpentine flats  between ' the    recently      completed  stretch of paving, and that known as  tlie Cloverdale contract, a distance of  slightly over one mile,-is in-excellent-  condition.      This portion    was gravelled some time ago and   afterwards  rolled, and the result achieved    was  well worth  the    expenditure.    With1,'  this gravel becoming packed it is'ex--  pected that this piece of . the   road  will stand' up during the winter; and -  that little" ��������� inconvenience      will,  be  suffered. ���������  ,  Motorists coming from White Rock  to New Westminster, repofrt that tha  road between Cloverdale and the International boundary is also in good  shape. Parts of this road have also  been recently gravellled, while other  parts have been graded, and ��������� motorists state that there is no cause for  complaint over its condition.  "As a result of the recently completed paving being thrown t, open.  Cloverdale confectioners and ,' icecream parlors did a land-office  building throughout the whole of the  day.

F. WHITE  I  -���������   ,  Mi'  B.   C.   Phone   41.  '   Fflrmers' Phone 1909  1  Abbotsford, B.C.  A recent visit to the Okanagan and the opportunity of seeing the many beautiful orchards at Vernon, Kelowna, Summer-  land and Penticton, wihere peaches reach their perfection in  taste, color and quantity, would lead one to ask the question,  Why are not Okanagan peaches sold in the towns of the Fraser  Valley in preference to the California;! product? There is a reason; and our patriotism to the home grown product, it being  equal to the foreign product (in this case it is superior) leads tftc  writer to believe there is "something rotten in the state of Denmark." . What is this something? Who is responsible in the  coast cities?  ...  . Those who attended the banquet at the Mission Hotel qn  Monday evening heard the Minister of Agriculture re-iterate the  fact that millions of dollars were spent each year for the importation of fruit and other food products into the province. The  question arises, Is it necessary that this importation should take,  place each year owing to the fact that the same article of food is  not grown in, B. C? Or is the importation made in defiance of  the fact that there is plenty of the home grown fruit, such as  peaches, but those responsible for the distribution are also responsible-for the importation?  ../There are other kinds of fruit, besides peaches from the  Okanagan, that meet the foreign competitor on the market.  Why should peaches meet competition, when there is abundance  of peaches grown in the Okanagan Valley���������peaches that the  lady of the house would much prefer to have for eating and preserving purposes?  ���������;! ��������� Vancouver is the greatest distributing centre for.the Fraser  Valley. Do the wholesale fruit men realize what an injury they,  are doing .their province when they briiig in California peaches,  with an abundance of Okanagan peaches that can be placed on  the Vancouver market in much less than twenty-four hours after  the order is placed? Or do these men give a 'tinker's damn' if  the B. C. fruit lies rotting on the ground, and the grower thus so  handicapped that it puzzles him how to carry on? Sure there is  something wrong somewhere!  ���������'��������� The good ladies of Vancouver and the Fraser Valley generally are patriotic enough to buy, and they have the' say in this  matter, B. G. fruit when it is equal to the imported^ fruit. They  know the Okanagan peach is equal, if not superior to the Califof-  nia peach. The other day the writer happened to be in a store  when a lady, who was looking for preserving peaches, asked the  clerk if he "had no peaches from the Okanagan." His reply was  ;that the wholesalers had sent only the California peaches,  Do the wholesalers want to see the province forge ahead, or  do they care so long as they get their commission?  When the question of anti-dumping   clause came before the  =Var couver Board of Trade last winter, it was claimed that���������well  the board kind of side-tracked the issue,   they were not responsible (?) for a certain committee of the board.  It would appear that the same people.who. fathered the cania  paign against the anti-dumping clause are a'lso responsible for  the California peach crowding out the Okanagan peach.  Somebody tried to inform this paper by circular a few days  ago that there was a strenuous campaign on in the province, to  get the people to buy the "Made in B. C." products. What this  paper wants to know; what the fruit grower wants to know;  and what we all want to know, is why this does not apply to the  Okanagan peach? Why it does not apply to the Fraser Valley  small fruits? ��������� Why it does not apply to potatoes, hay and all  other products of the B. C. soil?  Apparently the "Made in B. C." campaign does not include  the "Grown in B. C." product.   More's the pity!    -  Thus the business of the province is being ruined. The  farmer cannot sell his produce to good advantage owing ,to the  r.npatriotic action of the wholesaler who asked (a miid worth  the consumer to purchase foreign fruit, foreign potatoes, foreign  hay and foreign everything else of the kind that is produced by  the B. C. farmer. Wonder if that is why Timothy Eaton's catalogue finds such an important place in so many farmers' homes?  He follows the idea, buy any place except at home.  To make this province prosperous and happy, the "Grown  in B. C." campaign must go side by side with the "Made in B. C."  campaign. Then will the farmer and fruit grower co-operate  with the business men who are at present boosting the "Made in  B. C." product. When the man who tills the soil is down and out  of luck his purchasing power of "Made in B. C." product is  mighty limited and his wish to patronize those who do not patronize him raifks at least ten per cent below; par.  Let us get together. Let us boost just as hard for the  "Gn)wn in B. C." peaches and other farm produce as we are expected to boost for the "Made in B. C." produce. Thus build up  a province with a happy contented people. Importing when the  home grown can be utilized seems a poor gambling game.  A nice new stock of Wall Paper  lias come to hand.
