For the first few weeks of the season,  Mr. Lindley states, the excellence of  the Creston tomatoes was freely remarked, but after that the grade fell  off.  President Jackson, who was in the  chair, announced at the close that in  a couple, of weeks a meeting of the  ranchers would be held to discuss the  erection and operation of a creamery  in the Valley.  The quarterly meeting of the shareholders of Creston Fruit Growers  Union, Ltd., in Mercantile Hall, on  Saturday night, was by long odds the  most satisfactory gathering of the  ranchers comprising the company yet  XXKZXtJX.  tm ���������. _   ,     , ��������� -��������� ���������  -rhe ctnet cause for satisfaction, of  course, was the financial statement for  the three months, July, August and  .September, got out and certified correct by Mr. Pawleyi the Nelson auditor. Briefly stated, this document  showed that for the the three months  business amounting to over $15,000  had been handled by the Union,  and  fvnt-   __._-.*,_.  ������,   _.*^������....

In addition to the auditor's report,  Mr. Heald had another financial state-' away at the tender age of 13years and  ment that among other things showed ��������� 5 months. Frances was born at  that up to October 1st the Union 4iad : Sandon, and came here when about  paid off over 50 per cent, of the bad six months old. Her health was never  debts carried forward from 1914, and j robust, being troubled at times with  that with the volume of business yet | inflammatory  rheumatism.

Both these statements were nnanim-  -ously adopted, along with   the   minutes of  the   previous 'meeting,   with  little or no discussion.

Although a  quite serious attack it was not thought  fatal until a few minutes before she  passed away, The funeral took place  on Monday afternoon and was largely  -ttteuded, the scbooi scholars being  there in a body to pay   their   last  r-e-  gestion to nahie a committee to tackle   apeel*.- Rev.

Littlejohn, W. A. Pease, Jas.  Adlard and H. Lyne were selected for  the work.  Under the head   of '' 'anything  for  the good and welfare of the' Union"   a  mildly acriminous" debate sprung up  launched by Mr.Holnies as to why the  early season resolution to   pack only  number ones and   crated   apples  had  later on, without notice, been  amended to include number twos.    In stating  his case, Mr. Holmes pointed out that  he had, by having no intimation that  number   twos   would  be   acceptable,  put   up   numerous    boxes   as   crated  appleR that would readily grade number two and in consequence had   lost  money by so doing. Mr. Compton, unsuccessfully, be it  said, attempted  to  convinbe Mr. Holmes thaE  in   reality  he (Holmes) wao to the good financially  by packing crated apples rather than  number twos;  the   money   saved   on  the paper   wraps   and   packing,   the  cheaper crate used, the five pounds of  apples saved, to say nothing of tho le. s  time required to  handle more   than  compensated for the limited spread  in  price   as.  between    twos  and   crated  fruits.  Mr. Pochin'H euriousity to know  whether there was any money in  handling the output of the Co-Opera-  tiye Fruit Growers Association of  Wynndel on n margin of 5 per cent,  on soft fruit- and 7 per cent, on all  other varieties brought to light tho  fact that the commission from this  business alone brought in sufllolont  revenue to pay half the sides ninna-  gers salary, and the remark from Mr.  Blinco that mich an income looked  good to him was concurred In by most  ev������������vyone present.

We all  Worthy Every Rancher's Consideration  Sales Manager Lindley's Report to Creston Fruit Growers Union Shareholders  Acting as your sales manager during  the past ten weeks in the cities on  the prairies it was my privilege to  make a thorough investigation on  many cars we shipped to these various  points and compare them with cars  coming from other points in in B.C.  The results are as follows:  Just before dealing  with commodities in carload shipments I will take up  the question of soft fruits.  Strawberries  The chief complaint on   our   strawberries for the past   season   was   thut  we shipped theni   too   much   on   the  green side.  Raspberries  Raspberries from all accounts gave  fair M-tit.1* act ion although complaints  wore made about ��������� these arriving in  poor shape. The cause, of course, being due to the fact that throughout  tho raspberry picking season we had  very unfavorable weather.  Cherries  - There were uo complaint- on the  preserving varieties but on the eating  varieties they complained severely  about our puck.  Tomato**  For the first two or three weeks we  shipped tomatoes a commonly expressed opinion was that we. had the be*.t  tomatoes on the murkc',. Alter thus  the grade, went, down very much until  we could not Nay we had ever uh good  tomatoes uh were on the market during the rent of the _eunoii.  IHcMinu Cucumbers  So far aa pickling cucuiiihcrH are  concerned the time l,o dispose of these  In liiree ooniitit.lei. commenceM iiliiiul,  the fil't-t week in September. The de-  tiuU'd for )ii-l-lui^ i u������ u'lil*. i.s during  the month of August in very   limited.  Pickling Onions  growing less year by year on account  of the fact more of the Silver Skins  are being grown.  Large Cucumbers  This season like all other seasons  has clearly demonstrated that the  latter part of August finds large cucumbers a glut, on the market. The  demand commences to be very heavy  about the second week in Septombelaud continues throughout the entire  season.  Corn  I examined considerable corn that  left this district and it is only fair to  Bt.ite that very little of it was good.  A lot of it very bad. That is the  prime reason why we ceased to be able  to secure orders for corn.  Apples  The one variety of apple giving the  highest satisfaction on the market  was the Wealthy. Re the packing  and grading of our apples. When  compared with the apples from two  firms that handle 80 por cent, or the  Okanagan fruit crop, institutiono that  without doubt set tho standard of  packing and grading in B.C. can, only  state thut our wrapped stock wuh fail.  Many of thopm:kR wore quite equal  to these concerns. However quite a  portion of the pucks were altogether  v ������o Hluck. and caused.much -_i-u*'poiii_-  Hi'int to the buyers und In _ionie Instances reductions in prlres. Ho far  uh the crated stock is concerned in-  voligation proved that we put a large  p ntton of the poor applet) in our crutet.  than arc In crates from the above two  concerns which again hascuiiHcd much  di-cuN-inn und di-.'ati-ifuctinn.  Pears  The big fuult, I found with the (...a.'  wuh that wc do not nhlp our ~ltartlet Ih  and Flend-h  l.-'.Hitl--   early   enough.  ..     ...     i   ..........

In no single instance did I find from the above two  concerns mentioned any pears aii-iv-  ingon the market only in a green condition which is the condition the buyers like them to arrive.  Plums  Without question as an organized  body selling fruits to the prairie cities  we had tho worst packed plums which  caused us considerable* worry nnd  trouble. The way the plums are packed and graded by the above two firms  is very similar to our apple pack. If  tho plums will make a straight four  pack they aro packed that way. If  they will make a four-three pack thoy  pack them that way. Not only did  they do this but they also graded  plums according to their ripeness ns  well as size whicli is an important  factor.  Cicston an the Map  The Creston valloy is now more recognized ns a shipping centre than it  over \va������ before in its history und  while there ure serious fault h to be  found as shown in the abovo report  yet it is generally acknowledged there  lias been u gradual improvement iu  the punt few years and thut 1015 hiu.  shown much Improvement.

One of the timliest bits of publicity work on behalf of the Creston  Valley was turned on Friday evening last when the special train  carrying Vice-President Bury, and  the Western Vice-president Grant  Hall, of the C.P.R. on a trip of in-  spectisn over the western lines was  stopped at Creston to allow a  deputation of citizens pi-esent Mr.  Bury with a crate of ripe strawberries, which had been gathered  that afternoon on the Grady ranch  at Duck Creek���������one of two crates  picked that day.  R. M. "Reid, president of the  board of trade made the presentation in his best style. In accepting  them Mr. Bury stated that the  gift but confirmed the impression  he had always~held of fruit-growing possibilities of the Valley���������information gathered at first hand  particularly when superintendent  at ''Cranbrook���������and assured his  hearers that anything the company could do to advance the interests of this section won Id have  his favoraale consideration.  The berries were  a   particularly  fine crate both as to size and   color  and that they tasted good  may   be  gleaned from   the   following   telegram:  v Penticton, B.C., Oct 23.  President Board of Trade,      -    ,  .,A.':^A"y 'Creston,r;   '.*"..' .' .'"''"���������  Strawberries were immensely  enjoyed. Glad to see progress  Creston is making.  Geo. Bury.  Mr. Bury was not exactly a  stranger in a strange laud here, as  he readily spotted an old friend in  R. S. Bevan���������Pick and George, as  they called f-aeh other having side-  kicked together on the preliminary  survey work on the Crow line. Incidentally it may be remarked that  Mr. Bury comes naturally by him  liking for Creston Strawberries.  Duing his residence in Winnipeg  so long as Dick wuh on tho Griftin  ranch he always secured his season's supply from here.  wish our local  J.P. u speedy recovery  and safe return.  Sirdar was favored with a call from  Provincial police officer Forrester and  Editor HuyeB of Ci-eston on Saturday.  A neur-cjisualty won reported on  Ei-day lust, when the engine on the  eastbound express clipped u couple of  inches off the tail of Mine Host  Morris' fox terrier.  The fine wcuther enabled a large  party to take in tho Red Cross concert  and dance at. Creston on the 21st,  where everyone had an enjoyable  evening.  Last Saturday Sirdar was well i*ep-  resented at Duck Creek, where a dance  was given with the usual success.  Messrs. Loasby, Swanson a-d Call-  ant were Creston visitors Tuesday  evening.

The under-  I growth deepened and grew denser as  i we progressed and finally I Jiad to  'open a way with my ax.    The tangled  ��������� masses soon gave way before my  . sturdy energy, and we entered a  ': little clearing which extended to the  i wall. There above us were the three  : openings     i_cneai.ii   -its  depression  in  ��������� the crest sure enough, tbe one in the  'middle being great-r than the others,  : the   entrance   high   enough   to   admit  tne.   who   am   much   above   the   usual  stature, without bending my bead.    It  i was elevated half way up the surface  ��������� of the cliff and the approach to it was  : by a pile of stones, not laid  with or-  ; der and regularity of the giant stairs,  i but  apparently piled together haphaz-  j ard  by  p?ople  unskiled  to make any  i other practical way of ascent.  j     It was    difficult    enough  for tis to  climb as it. was.    The heap of stones  evidently had   not.  been  mounted  for  years, and the stones had broken and  fallen away in many places.   Indeed, I  had to rebuild the pile here and there.  When after arduous labor I peered  within   the  cave I  could  see  nothing  but the blackness.    When we left the  j ghip we had taken a lantern and a few  candles.    I   bad brought    the lantern  i with me that day.    We now lightel it  with the flint and steel and tinder and  stepped silently in.    My lady followed  me close, being, as she had said, unwilling to be left alone and ever ready  to   face  any  peril  in  my  company.  Above tiie low entrance the cave  wall rose to a height of perhaps tv.en- |  ly feet, making a vast, vaulted chain- I  her with got hie suggestions about, it, I  for tbe eoral before it hardened had j  been built into curious shapes and fan- j  astic figures. We didn't notice this uo j  much at lirsf, for with a wild shriek, |  my gentle companion suddenly caught i  my   arm   and   pointed   downward. j  The door, like that, of tha central j  altar, was covered wth human hones, j  a gruesome sight, l'or any one and certainly for a woman, and mado more j  gruesome because of the dull lighting j  of tbe cave.

Several cities have handled.the vacant  lot. problem in a systematic maimer,  and have secured lesults commensurate to the amount of energy expended.  Some, by allowing interest to lag,  have been only partially suceessl'iil.  In others, also, circumstances militated against success in that unemployed men took up the cultivation of vacant lots, and, upon securing employment, neglected them. On the whole,  however, the movement can be regarded as a distinct success. No estimate of the value of tbe product is  available, but, judging from the enthusiasm qi' some of the vacant lot  gardeners.f the total value is large.  There is one clanger from tbe vacant  lot garden, however, to which attention must be drawn, namely, tha  growth of noxious weeds in the newly  cultivated land. Too often, on the removal of the crop, the ground is given  over to the weeds. Organizations  handling the vacant lot work should  give tbe matter of weed destruction  early attention; otherwise, tbe lots  will not only prove a menace to the  ]a.ud in the vicinity by the spread of  weed seeds, but create antagonism to  the movement on ihe part of"the occupiers of the neighboring land.  Non-Agricultural Lands  Present Waote Land Should be Utilised For Growth of Timber  Optimistic as we have been in thie  country, we seem to have been unahle  to see any value worth caring for in  our non-agricultural lands. Our vision  was broad enough years ago, wlieD  we heard of agricultural-lands in the  Peace River Valley, to recognize that  such lands, while unused at the time.  Avould within a de-cade or two grow  crops nnd support a population. We  may look across the future to the time  when our far northern mineral deposits, though inaccessible and incapable of development at present, will  d-velop centres of industry. Bnt we  travel daily across the non-agricultural, logged areas and burned-over  lauds which surround many of our  most densely settled communities and  lie across our transcontinental railways and we see in-such lands no asset. This altitude is both dangerous  and unfair to the country. We must  realize that our present stands of merchantable timber cannot support our  growing industries indefinitely. The  growing American demand tor forest  products, to which in a very few de  cades will be added a much greater  in_ti"i_ot in ISurope than now exists, win  very rapidly wipe out our eastern merchantable forests. Even now, New  Brunswick, spee.ded up by foreign  markets, is cutting each year from  crown lands more than the annual forest growth.���������H. R.

Bulgaria's Aid  Could Put Over 300.000 Soidiers in the  Field  In refusing to allow Germany and  Austria to send munitions of war  through Roumania^to Turkey the Roumanian government gave strong- proof  of its friendly attitude towards Great  "Britain and her allies. This has now  been followed by similar action on the  part of Bulgaria, King Ferdinand having assented to a ministerial decree a  few* days ago forbidding the passage  of war supplies to Turkey through his  country. Viewed in the light of Premier Asquith's outspoken remarks in  the house of commons to the effect  Great Britain was >|pepai*ing,. to give  financial assistance^'to on a "or more  neutral countries which were likely to  be drawn still closer to the allies, this  step by the two Balkan states is highly significant.  Military observers agree that no  harder blow has been struck at Turkey than this cutting off of her supplies, and the prediction is made that  Austria will attempt to force a passage to the Turkish border. Such an  effort would result in disaster to the  enemy, for the slightest offense in this  direction would bring a declaration of  v.ar from both Bulgaria and Ron-  mania. It will not be surprising if  these nations lose little time in entering the conflict anyway, i'or it must  be plain to them now that their only  hope of gain is in actively opposing  the Teutons and their ally. There is  every indication that the newly elected parliament of Greece looks at it in  that, way, so far as Greece is concerned, and its attitude undoubtedly is  having a tremendous influence with  Roumania and Bulgaria. The latter,  military observers believe, will throw  in its lot with the allies in spite oC certain railway concessions that Turkey  it. reported to have made to the Bulgarian government.

T Ii .m T T T7 T^m  Hull,  Canada  Saskatchewan     Farmers    Have    Lost  Heavily   This   Year  Saskatchewan farmers have lost  this year, through hail, over $2,000,.  000. according to. a conservative' estimate mads by the Saskatchewan hail  commission. J. TC. Poynter, chairman  of the hail insurance commission, in  an interview stated that this estimate  had bsen made only after a complete  survey o������ the province by the hail  commissioners and inspector.  Mr. Poynter estimated tliat not over  i fifty per cent, of the loss through hail  ' to the Saskatchewan farmers was covered by hail insurance of any kind.  The loss Was considerably greater  than that, of last year. There were  several reasons for this. In the first  place, the area under crop this year  was much greater than in any previous year. Another factor which  tended to make the loss so much  greater was the splendid crop.; which  had been brought almost to maturity j gia  before they were damaged by frost.  In an ordinary year, in many in-_  stances, $10 per acre would cover the  damage to the crop, whila this year  it would take double this sum. owing  to ths heavy  yield  in most districts.  German  Rapid Firers  Each foot that the German gains,  he walls in with an immense barrier of barbed wire and concrete.  Behind this jungle of wire, which?  is almost as impassable as a morass,  are planted machine guns by the  thousand, well protected with concrete and steel armor, and hidden  from any .but the sharpest eye.  The machine gun, used ou this  scale, is a new element in laud war.  m its hail of bullets charges wither  and casualties by the thousand are  piled up in a few minutes. By the  method of its mounting it is generally invulnerable to any but a direct  hit, and with it a single good shot  and a couple of attendants can do  the work of fifty or sixty marksmen.  On the French front by the lowest  estimate the enemy has 50,000 or  these guns; by the highest published  !.5,000, which would give one to every  hundred yards of front.

Cost of  Stopping  Trains  Tn the compaign which the Ohio  railroads made for higher passenger  rates in that state all kinds of statistics were filed with the legislation  committee.  Probably the statistics dealing with  train stops, filed by President Willard, of the Baltimore and Ohio, were  among the most interesting. Thi:;  memorandum asserted that it costs  from $1.35 to $1.85 to stop a passang-  er train at a station on the Ohio  roads, or at an average of about $I.-80  a stop.  In oilier words, say- the. Wali  Street Journal, with a train making  17 -lops there would be a cost to the  railroad of $27.30 for the starting aud  stopping alone. Among the items entering into the cost, of stopping a  train, the most important is coal, rs.  when a train is stopped tho air brake,  are applied and the cuul is us_-d to  generate the steam which compresses  the air.  There is a 'great wear und tear on  eipiipment because of thesi* stoppages,  and tho car wheel., liie brake shoes  and the rails are worn away b'eoauso  of friction. In starting alter u stop  I here is a great, expenditure of steam  in gelling under headway, and there  is more wear and  tear on e'liiipnient.

Dairymen Should Feed Their Cows All  They  Will   Eat  There   are     certain     fixed   charges,  often called overhead    charges,    that  T are comparatively uniform iu milk  production. For instance, the cost of  stabling, the space required per cow.  taxes, insurance, delivery of milk,  etc., "will be very uniform. The one  factor that will fluctuate will be the  feed given. If the amount of feed  consumed   by   the   cow   will  give the  } results indicated, then it certainly is  to the interest of our dairymen to  feed their cows all they will eat and*  yet keep up the ������k\v of milk. There  are dairies where the cows are  being fed to this economic poin\  Some ot the dairiss havo enorn-ous  overhead charges, yet in spite of this  they were able to produce milk fcr  fifteen cents per gallon. The secret  lay in the extraordinary yields per  cow. One dairyman has rather low  overhead charges. He also feeds his  cows the least amount possible- His  milk flow per cow is very low, dii'*  primarily to his skimp method of  feeding, and as a result it is costing  him over forty cents per gallon to  produce his milk.  If the milk flow is increased, the  cost of production is lowered very  rapidly. Some investigations have  been carried out along this line i .  whicli -cost of production records were  kept. It was found i.i one particular  instance that the cost of producing a  gallon of milk with the 3,000 pound  cow was about twenty-five cents per  gallon, with the 0,000 pound cow it  was twelve and one-half cents, and  with tho 0,000-pound cow it was only  u trille over six cents. This groat o *-  crease in the cost of milking per gallon is due to  the increased flow  per  i cow,    wiih    the overlie ad charges re-  | m.'iining tho same. The only increase 1  cost, was for feed, which went, into the  product ion of  milk.

Nelson's Trafalgar Day contribution  to the British Red Cross was close to  $300.  Biairmore Anglicans are conveiting  the old Mounted Police barracks into  a church.  The C.P.R. has closed its sleeping  and dining car department at  Revelstoke.  A new steam heating boiler is being  installed in the C.P.R. depot at  Cranbrook.  In the agricultural area around  Golden potatoes are running 12 bushels  to the acre.  The sawmill at Elko has enough  business in sight to keep it running  until Christmas. ������������������*--  The Crow's Nest Pass Lumber Co.  at Wardner have laid off the night  shift at the planing mill.  Revelstoke has made a grant of $300  towards the prizes for a big ski tournament there this winter.  Fernie has several cases of diphtheria, and the Free Press wants the  isolation hospital re-opened.  As Revelstoke is unable to procure  wire, extensions of the city's electric  light plant are at a standstill.  Fernie gives free water and light to  the militia companies that use the  skating rink for drill purposes.  Two Revelstoke citizens have just  been fined $5 each for keeping game  bought out of season in   cold   storage.  Winter approaches   at Kaslo.    The  C.P.R. has already got out   its snovv-  s ready foi- any 6i__e_geucy.  the Idaho-Continental mines to Porthill, a distance of 26 miles. The Continental is shipping several cars of ore  a week and the ore is said to runabout  $140 to the ton.  There are fourteen patients in Grand  Forks' new $20,000 hospital.  Enterprise: "The King" of the  Doukhobors and his secretary were in  Biairmore on Monday, straightening  out matters in connection with the  purchase of lands in the Lundbreck  district for the new Doukhobor  colony.  At the assizes at Fernie last week  the grand jury recommended the  erection of a jail somewhere in East  Kootenay to obviate the necessity of  having to take all prisoners to Nelson,  particularly those who have, to be  brought back for trial.  Star: Estimating that Golden's  monthly consumption of butter is  $1000, this would support ten farmers,  who could, in addition, mature an  average of 10 hogs on skim milk,  which, at current prices, would be  worth $210 at 150 pounds.  ms*  Word reached here yesterday that  A. L. Burgess, only son of J. T. Burgess of Athalmer, former C.P.R.  agent of this point, who went to the  front with the First Canadian Contingent, has been wounded in the leg  and is confined in tine of the English  hospitals. No details are given but it  is surmised the injury is not serious.  Young Burgess enlisted in Saskatchewan.  O. J. and Joe Wigen were Creston  callers on Monday, Miss Bathie made  the grade on Wednesday.  The dance on Saturday -tight- was,  an unqualified success. About 25 couples were present, including a large  party from Sirdar, Creston ,y Cahyo ti  Cjty. The bulk of the music was fur'-  nished by Messrs. Swanson & Mau-  berg* of Canyon City, of whom too  much cannot be said in praise of their  music. A most enjoyable lunch Was  served at midnight after which dancing continued nntil the wee sma' 'oors.  High water mark was registered in  postoffice business on Monday when.  Postmaster Butterfield received four  sacks of mail from the eastbonnd train  and two from the westbound.  Dr. Henderson had a sudden call to  Duck Creek on Tuesday to attend  Mrs. Wigen. We are glad to say she  was not seriously indisposed and is  now arouud again.  Its too bad the worthy gentleman  from Alice Siding could not scrape up  a ton of potatoes. It's awful to have  to have to turn down a $19 offer these  hard times.  Mrs. Grady is still picking strawberries. She shipped two crates on  the-22nd and also picked a lot on the  27th.    Kaslo, please note.  His many f i-ieuds in this district will  be sorry to hear that Lance Corporal  Vigne, who was reported as wounded  in these columns some time ago, is  more seriously hurt than was at first  supposed. Word was received on  Wedhasday from Pte. Frame May to  the effect that he had seen Vigne and  ���������-'hat he had been wounded during the  fighting on June 15, and had  been  in  fjhe hospital   up   to   the beginning of  October.    His wound consisted  of   a  small piece of shell in the cbeeK, which  had been taKen out and leaves a bad  swelling.    He Wets hit on   the bacK of  the heel with a larger shell which tboK .  a piece out of the heel the size of adoi  laiy, It is thought- he will not be iit  for f nrther/seryice." "~  Earl Pease is putting in a few days  here with his team, doing land clearing for Carl Wigen and W. Cooper.  A letter of a more interesting character was received from  Pte. Phiiip  Butterfield   during   the weeK, which  reads in part:   Just a few lines to let.  you Know we are alright to date.   Am  writing this from the trenches, where  we   are   at   present.    One  lives in  a  thing called a dugout, which  is a hole  dug in the side of a trench to shelter  one to some extent from the shell fire.  We are being shelled as I write this so  I find  writing occupies  ones  mind a  little which is better than doing nothing; that gets on one's nerves horribly.  This life is different than you imagine,  everything   is very matter   of   course  and taKen  for granted.      If it wasn't  for the bullets whizzihg around and  the shells  bursting   you would   never  tuinK a war was on   at all, but I must  confess these latter are  disconcerting,  but 1 have no doubt I shall get used to  them.  Oanyon  A letter arrived at the same time,  but written a few days later, from.  Pte. Douglas Butterfield, that says  they have all come safely out of the  trenches and are having a rest, a bath  and a change of clothes.

In speaking of the future fruit production of the Creston Valley, Canyon  City must be classed as ono of the  important units. Thirty resident  ranchers have about 9.000 applos trees,  prinicipally of the Wagner, Wealthy,  Mcintosh and Delicious varieties, from  three to six years old. Close to 1,000  of these treos are now hearing fruit..  It is plainly realized, and is most on-  eournging to those who nre orchard  owners, who have pioneered in this  section of the Valley, that within a  couple of years fruit will bo shipped  from here in carload IotH. Unlike  other part., of the Valley our agriculturists have gone in more for -tuck  raising than the cultivation of small  fruits, and their number is increasing  yearly. Vegetables rained between  the rows of trees arc usually for live  stock con-aunpfion; only a. small  quantity ho far has been -hipped.

This, and a whole lot more  information coneerning immigration  work is contained in a very interesting little booklet issued by the direction of Hon. \Y. J, Roche, minister of j  the interior, called "Immigration j  Facts and Figures." ��������� j  Immigration has been encouraged \  trom the British Isies, the United j  States and certain European coim- j  tries, but, of course, at present the j  campaign is not being carried 'on in i  Germany, Austria, Finland or  Southern Europeans or Asiatics have  not been wanted at any time.  There are various ways in which  the attractions of Canada are set  forth to the prospective emigrant.  Regular agencies are established,  newspaper publicity, distribution of  pamphlets, exhibits of grains and  other products; and in Great Britain  exhibition wagons are sent around  through, the country districts. In the  United States exhibits are made at  the big fairs and expositions. In  Great Britain and Europe arrangements are made with steamship and  booking- agents, whereby a bonus is  paid for the emigrants which are directed to this country. Records in the  pamphlet, go back as far. as 1897, but  iu the majority of 'Instances they are  not complete for all that period, as  more detailed and accurate information regarding new arrivals in the Dominions are constantly being introduced.  During the past _5 years there was  a total "immigration of 3,050,000, the  largest number from any country being those from the British Isles, 1,15!),-  628: with Americans a close second,  3,������.'5S,000. Of the remainder the Aus-  tro-I-lungarians. which include the  GaM-cians. numbered 200,000; Germans, :.j_,000: Italians, .119,000, and  Russians    .7,000. These are the round  .if... f-_  have  a  pleasing   -habit  people west of tr_e lakes  Easterners  of telling the  that money which is spent on immigration is a direct contribution to the  filling  up   of   the   west   and  that   we  the  money   to  to  be  should be correspondingly grateful  them   for  allowing  appropriated.  A glance at the figures given regarding the destination of t!i_* immigrants shows that ttye eastern provinces got about half of the new arrivals.  There is one class of immigrant.:.  that is directly beneficial in a financial -way���������the Chinese. In head tax  the Orientals have paid very large  amounts particularly in the four years  following 1910. In that year the receipts were $2,257,000; 1911, ?3.041.-  000; 1912, $3,539,000; 1913, $2,639,000;  while last year there was only $577,-  000. This money is collected from  each Chinaman at the rate of $500 per  Banking     and      Business      Interests  Should Co-operate With the  Farmers  At a meeting held recently in Winnipeg at which representatives of the  farmers'   organizations     of    Western  Canada   were  present,  the   matter of  prices   likely   to   be   received   for the  present   crop   was   discussed.   It   was  | the unanimous opinion of those pres-  j ent that a heavy movement on the part  j of the farmers to sell their grain at the  I present time wonljn) be almost certain  ! to force prices to' a lower level and  ! that if a more leisurely method of mar-  J keting  were  followed by the farmers  I in the 'disposal of their grain a better  . average price all round would be se-  i cured for it. ������  j     While   it   was   recognized   that   the  matter of giving advice on the selling  of grain  is  a  difficutl    one,    it was  thought  advisable   by  all   present  to  | make a public statement advising the  I farmers of Western Canada, as far as  'possible,   to store a  portion of their  i grain on their farms, and, in this way,  [spread  the marketing of it over the  next eight or ten months, rather than  | place  it in immense quantities  upon  * the market  in the next  few months  f with the certainty���������as far as the pres-  j ent outlook Is concerned���������of bringing  | prices to a considerably lower level.  |    Lake and ocean boat space is more  ; scarce    than in previous years;  space are higher than ever  rates   of  exchange  between  _"% __tj_"_g������k _������_ ���������* ?ftl7S__  GERMANS  TRY TO CONCEAL DAMNING EVIDENCE  British  Which  for  Foreign   Office Replies to Recent German Statements, in  the   Latter Have Endeavored to Place the Blame  Their Humiliating Position on Other Nations  In reply to recent German statements relating to the origin of the  war, the Britisti foreign office issued  the following:  '���������First���������The Germans maintain that  the reason which led to the rejection  of the proposal for a conference was  the mobilization of Russia. In Paper  Number 43 of onr White Book, Sir J..  Goschen (British ambassador at Berlin) reported a conversation, with the  German secretary of state, refusing  a conference.  "The secretary- of state said that  the suggested conference would practically amount to a court of arbitration and could not in his opinion be  called together, except at the request  I of Austria and Russia. He maintained  j that such a conference  was not  head.  While there    have    been over thr.ee I for sucl1  million  people  admitted,  it must  notjbefore:  be inferred that all who make appli-!thls country and Europe ar^also more  cation are allowed to take up their ! adversethan theyJiave even been and  residence  in  the    Dominion.    In   the  past 12 years there have been 123,-  500 rejections for various reasons,  ranging from sickness or lack of  funds. Even after admission ha.  been gained there have been during  the past dozen years over 10,000  people rejected.  In classifyng the occupations of  the immigrants it is shown that those  from the British Isles and others from  the continent are about equally divided between farmers and general laborers, as there were a little more  than 500,000 of each. A very great  majority of the Americans who have  come across are farmers, there being  _L---!-/_-      C-  lialf milium, while the labor  ers do not total 200,000.  There are a great many comparisons that can be deduced from the  ljttle booklet, which contains a lot of  interesting information for those who  might be inclined to give a little study  to the material from which th  Canada is to be constructed.  U. S. Fleet Car. Traverse  Panama in a'Day  Procf of This Afforded in Handling  of   Naval   Practice   Squadron  Proof that the entire present main  American battleship fleet, made up cf  four divisions of five ships each and a  flagship, a total of twenty-one, could  be passed through the Panama canal  in one day has been afforded by th_  handling of the Naval Academy practice' squadron in the canal locks on  its way to and from the Panama Pacific Exposition.  The squadron, composed of the  battleships Missouri, Ohio aud Wisconsin, the largest warships which  have so far used the canal, were put  through the locks at Pedro, Miguel  and Miraflores, the Missouri and Ohio  simuVaneously in parallel, wtih the  Wisconsin directly in the rear.  Patriotism  and Prices  Necessary That the Producer Should  Receive   Fair  Prices  Patriotism and production was the  label on the campaign that employed  the leading men of the country in tho  work of teaching the farmers how to  pow better crops.  Patriotism and prices might be the  label on a campaign that could employ the leading men of tlio country in  the work of teaching the farmers haw  to get hotter prices for tho crops they  ); ve grown.  Fanners, know as much about  raising erap������ ns they do about selling  crops'. Outside wisdom helped the  fanner to raf.se crops. Ouluhle wisdom might help llio. farmer to soil  crops.

Facts  and Figures of War  The   British  One-third  undoubtedly the flooding of the mar  ket with grain immediately after  threshing will mean that these charges  which ultimately have to be paid by  the farmer, will go higher than ever.  It was thought advisable to publicly,  request the co-operation of the banks  and business interests generally in the  matter- Their co-operation might take  the form of extending the tiftie for payment of liabilities that farmers might  have to such banks or business interests, rather than to force the farmer.,  to sell their grain at a sacrifice in order to meet liabilities falling due in  October and November. The banks  particularly by taking advantage ct  the powers recently conferred could  mt.ke advances to farmers on the security of grain on the farm.  If this method of marketing can be  followed, we feel certain that it will  result in a greater monetary return for  the  crop to  the  farmers of Western  future I Canada   than   will   otherwise   obtain,  j and it seems apparent that such a re-  ______ ; suit will "be a direct benefit to every  business interest in the country, and  at.the same time will insure a steady  flow of grain sufficient for the needs  of the empire.  More leisurely marketing of our  grain has always been advocated by  the leaders of the* farmers* organizations and we make this statement at  the present time for the "purpose of directing attention to this very important matter at a period when our crop  is just beginning to move.

As  ��������� when he refused a conference he. re-  rates I ferred to the possibility   of    Russian  mobilization  it  cannot  now  be  maintained that the reason for the refusal  was the fact that Russia was guobiliz-  ing-  "As a matter of fact, the proposal  for a conference was made July 26,  191-1, and was refuced by Germany  July 27, liH_, while it was not until  July ul that orders were given for  a general mobilization in Russia. On  that day Germany presented an ultimatum to Russia requiring :*.n undertaking that within _f_3 hours the Russian forces should bo demobilized.  "Second���������Doubt is thrown in Germany on the assurance we gave Bel  gium in iSi'-i that we should not land  troops in that country except in thy  case of violation of its territory by  another power. Assurance was not  only given to the Belgian minister  but Sir F. Villiers "gave Sir Edward  Grey's record of it to the Belgian  government at the time. The assur-  ance appeared in the collected diplomatic rinei.ments. Why is it doubted?  It is because the Germans have not  allowed the reproduction of the  document, which is so damning to  their case.  "Third���������The final interview between Sir Edward Grey and Prince  Lichnowsky (German ambassador at  London). This interview, purely private, was held at a private'house and  na record was made of it. But Sir  E- Grey is certain that he never made  the statement quoted by the North  German Gazette with regard to the  decisive factor in Great Britain's nar-  tieipation in the war, nor did" he  speak of mediation in favor of Germany, if need bo, a fuller statement  will be made in parliament ou the  subject.  "Fourth���������-The immediate cause of  this war was the dispute betw.eein  Austria and Serbia, which then turned into a dispute between Austria  and Russia. Yet it is worthy of note  that it was Germany who "declared  war against Russia and France. The  Austrian ambassador remained in  Petrograd after the German ambassador left. Germany declared war  on Russia on August 1 and Austria  on August 6, 1914."

Foster, minister of trade  and commerce in the Canadian cabinet, in an interview, says:  "'One hun_iretf and lifty thousand  Canadians arc on the battle line iu  Europe or being recruited and trained  for the war." This statement is the  first official annouoncement concerning the contribution of men Canada  has made to the aliic _    .  "Up to the present time Canada lias  trained over sevent- thousand men  unci sent them to the front or oas-  stations in Europe i'or further training, "Sir (Jeorge continued. "Iu addition, eighty thousand men are being  recruited and trained in Canada. 1C  occasion demands Canada can increase still further her assistance.  Canada does this not simply to help  the Mother country, but because the  Dominion is part of the empire and  shares its ideals and perils equally.  "Altogether it is probable that out  of this co-operation jn the struggle  for existence of the British empire  relation., between the "Overseas Dominions and the Mother Country will  become clobor than ever. What  mc'lhods of organization will be needed to bring this about and give It articulate form are not worth while discussing now. That will remain for  after consideration.  "Canada is no', unduly fooling tlu;  burden of war, owing mainly to our  largo agricultural rehsources, and for  the surplus of which the call is continuously and insistent, but whatever  burdens Canada may be required to  boar ats a consequence ot the present  conditions, tho will boar cherfully  and without murmuring."
