 E'i  _l  Vol. VII.  CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 10, 1915  No. 47  ,_4  ies ivianager and  Directors Differ  The makings of quite an interesting  annual, or extraordinary general,  meeting of the shareholders of the  Creston Fruit Growers' Union was  supplied on December 1st when A.  Lindley, who, since May 1st, has held  the position of sales manager for the  association, was retired from office as a  result of a meeting of the directors.  The cause of this rather drastic action is due to breach of contract on the  part of Mr. Lindley, according to ihe  directors' version of the affair, while  Mr. Lindley is equally insistent in  asserting that he has in no wise contravened any of the clauses in the  agreement under which he assumed  the position of sales manager.  So far as The Review can learn the  trouble arises over Mr. Lindley exceeding a line of credit he was authorized to give a certain prairie wholesale  fruit concern, which has recently  assigned for the benefit of the creditors. There is also a charge that Mr.  Lindley violated his agreement in that  some of the car lots sent out were  sold onconsigment in spite of the fact  that this procedure is expressly forbidden in said agreement.  In reply to this Mr. Lindley affirms  that at no time while on the job in  person at Creston was this firm given  credit in excess of amount stipulated  in contract. And, furthermore, that  while out on his selling trips all the  information supplied him was to the  effect that the firm in question was  keeping its account within due bounds.  On the score of selling' ou consignment, if we understand him right, his  claim is that the cars thus sold were  not.ftjade up as per his orders and  that the parties to whom they had been  sold refused to take deliverd and, as  the goods were perishable, sale on  consignment was the only course open  to him.  In a general way this is how the  thing came about. Just what the next  turn of affairr will be is not announced,  though it is thought Mr. Lindley's  friends will ask for a special shareholders meeting to clear the matter up.  As his contract has some five months  yet to run it is reasonably certain Mi'.  Lindley will ask for payment in full  for these months, if not for reinstatement as sales manager under a new  board of directors. Such matter, we  hear, must be decided by arbitration,  under the terms of the agreement.  son's on Wednesday, when another  dozen pairs of sox were finished to go  on to headquarters in the next Creston  bale.  At the Hood ranch prayers are being offered for an early spring. Just  now some 80 head of cattle are being  fed, which gets away with a load of  hay a day and the season's cut of 100  loads is already shrinking noticably.  Victor Carr has the contract of hauling the poles and other supplies for  the telephone line. Just now he is  distributing a carload of poles along  the right-of-way.  BUtehener  O. Benson left  here   hist   week  Cranbrook, where he will   engage  logging operations for the winter.  Looks Like Long  May Be Candidate  The annual meeting of the   Creston  District Conservative Association was  C3_. ..___..-.  x--iaiv,iVtAcx,y  _.__  night.    There was a good   turnout  of  members and the   retiring president,  C. O.   Rodgers,   occupied   the   chair.

This matter was brought  to a head when the Canyon City  delegates insisted that the C.C  association was entitled to name two  of the delegates, the total voters there  being sufficiently large to assure them  that number.  The re-appearanc������ of R. J. Long in  active political life as president of the  association is taken to mean that local  Conservatives haye at last persuaded  him to let   his   name   go   before   the  v nen interviewed yesterday re tne  unusual atmospheric conditions Mayor  Little refused to commit himself further than to naively remark that the  weather man had taken to the water  wagon and it had sprung a leak,  Mr. Slater, a Nelson dairyman, arrived on Tuesday with the intention  of purchasing a car load of milch  cows.

This is the topic that engaged the attention of the Debating Club at Tuesday night's meeting at the Presbyterian Church. Owing to an unexpected  call out of town, A. L. Dougherty, on  a few hours' notice, had to subsitnte  for Mr. Lindley on the affirmative,  with the support of F. H. Jackson,  while Messrs. H. Lyne and P. G. Ebbutt argued the negative, the Jackson-Dougherty forces winning by a  vote of 18 to 11.  On account of the   stormy   evening  the   attendance   was     smaller   than  usual, but in every other lespect   this  clash of intellects was the best so   far  this season.    The winners quite briefly  but quite thoroughly argued the question of the Patriotic Fund from    the  standpoint that it   was   every   man's  war and   therefore every man should  pay his fair share of the cost.    It   had  been found that the voluntary system  of giving had fallen   down   badly   in  this respect and therefore recourse   to  some  method   of   direct   or   indirect  taxation was not only necessary,   but  was likewise just and in the very best  interests of such a   great-   cause.    On  the Red Cross aspect of   the   question  government supervision  was urged to  ensure prompt and   regular   delivery  of supplies  and   an   equitable  destri-  bution to the boys at the. front.    Also  under such a system  only   the   really  necessary articles would be  made and  forwarded.    At present   such   useless  articles as respiratois,   personal   property bags, body belts, etc., had gone  overseas, only to be burned or used to  Deer are unusually plentiful iu tho  Okanagan this year.

Owner and Editor.  t. RESTON,  B.C.,  FRIDAY, DEC. 10  *r������asffi������ry  The Creston Valloy is not tho  only spot where tlio creamery question is a- live topic- At. Golden,  where the estimated cow population  for the whole Columbia Valley is  placed at less than (50, the farmers'  institute is talking butter factory,  while at Cranbrook the board of  trade,  exhibition    association    and  in this connection   W.   G.   Littlejohn of Erickson gives  the   would-  be attendants to such a convention  some food for thought  in   a   little  discourse on the possible additional  expense the proposed central prairie  selling office would    place   on   the  individual      rancher. .    In     other  words, we take it., if this additional  selling medium   is   going   to   add  another five per cent, or   even   ono  per   cent.,     to    the     commissions  already paid by the rancher to   the  local unions, Mr. Littlejohn   is    not-  prepared to concede that the    now  I departirre is worth while.  !     The point is    a timely    one;    so,  1 much    so,    ns  ! tlmt     unless  a    matter   of    fact,  the     delegates     to  havi  i*-i.  th  farmers'    institute   each  committee  co-opera ti ng  other    on     this     same     creamery  matter.  Cranbrook recognizes that there  is not enough, dairy stock in that  immediate neighborhood to support  a creamery, but the farmers"  institute is going to solve the cow-  problem by endeavoring to arrange  to have all the cream available at  points from Kov>tenay Landing to  Fernie, as well ;..- uKnig the branch  i    butter    plant    at  | the convention can come    buck    to  ���������the different local unions with clear  ! and definite information that the  j new order* of things ensures no  i increase in the commission paid   by  the rancher for    sell  i in  his    fruit.  wou;ti s-rt-ni  lines, sent   to    a    '  Cranbrook.  This sains sugg-  to be worthy tin-   consideration    of  the promoters of the Ore .-ton Va'ik-y  creamery.     If it U   feasible  to p.-ty  transportation   charges    on   cream  from    here   to    Cranbrook.     it   of  necessity    follows     that    it    could  profitably be shipped   from    Cranbrook to    a   creamery    here.     And  the latter arrangement   would    be  the more economical,  in    that   the  express charges would    be    smaller  seeing that it   is    reasonably   sure  '���������there is little hope in these times of  i stringency of a majority of the  j shareholders in any co-operative  i concern sanctioning any such busi-  ; ness affiliation.  Whether    or    not    the     rancher  : should hold the    proposition    down  to s-neh a hard and fast dollars and  cents basis we are not prepared   to  say; every man to his own industry  -ours is not fruitgrowing.     While  it were a mistake to  lose    sight    of  the larger   advantages   that   may  immediately, or in the near future,  accrue    from   marketing    through  a      uniform      Kootenay-Boundary  chaunel and. possibly   making  this  move the stepping stone to a united  B.C. selling   agency,   it   must   be  remembered that this is a material  age and right now things   financial  are a bit too    strenuous  .much headway   except  things.  The Littlejohn letter puts this  aspect of the matter up to those  interested in a matter-of-fact  business way. As to whether the  proposed move will be a good or  bad investment, he is absolutely  neutral. If the convention materializes, as Thb Review hopes it.  will, with a few men of the Littlejohn type in attendance, and  succeeds in securing a unanimous  endorsement of a   selling    avrange-  We arc just a little too busy and space is too limited to begin  to enumerate the various items that make up our Christmas  stock for this year, but suffice it to say that we can supply'your  every need at the very closost prices.

Another feature which favors  the selection of the Creston Valley  for a, creamery is the offer of a site  and building material for the  factory, to say nothing of the ideal  natural situation this section affords  such an industry. . , .    .  ,,r, ., _      ��������� , * iiieiit atong tne, nnes suggested   by  \V hue, naturally, each   comniun-1 * ,     T.   ���������        .     ,      . .

Up to the present the Valley has  been able lo market its apple  crop  to   fair   advantage,  we admit, but  if the different fruit inspectors  and  fruit officials, who    come   through  here, know what they are   talking  about, the day has   about   arrived  when the quantity of fruit offering  will be ample to  allow   buyers   to  pick and choose the selling agencies  with whom Ihey will    do   business,  and as sure   as   death    and   taxes  they are going to give   the   preference to the egencies that can deliver  standard goods uniformly   put   up.

Jackson was bringing forward a proposition to establish a co-operative  creamery to handle the dairy products  of this distric. In the hope that I  may be of assistance in obtaining favorable consideration for tne project I  ask a little space in your columns.  The question of finding a market f or-  his produce at a remunerative price  is the one outstanding problem of the  farmers' life the world over. Co-operation, wherever seriously adopted, has  never failed in greatly simplifying the  marketing problem and in increasing  the profits of the farming community.  The countries of Denmark and New  Zealand are notable examples of  what may be almost termed national  co-operation, while the Citrus Fruit  Growers of California and the Grain  Growers' Association of our own provinces are good examples of co-operative principles applied in the interests  of certain classes of producers spread  over wide ai-eas.  Nearer home, the Co-Operative Fruit  Growers' Association of Wynndel deserves recognition as a shining example of the advantages derived from a  "long pull, a strong pull and a pull  all together." Surely there cannot be  a single rancher"%t Duck Creek who  would willingly go back to rthe old  days when each sought ont his own  market, "Sauce for the goose is sauce  fo.i the gander"���������what is successful in  tiie matter of strawberry selling can  be made a succes in the matter of butter, eggs, and other produce.  In a letter just received from W.  Patterson, manager of the Cowichan  Creamery Association of Duncan,  B.C., he savsi "The advantages of  such an outlet for the farmers' butter,  eggs, etc., is unmistakable. By cooperation only is it possible to have  any voice in the marketing of your  PT'O^ll^t-.tt  " T^Vlo f.r.xxn Tk-._aT.-cr  oo--./-.*--<*_ 4-T/\T-  ���������- ^- -~ ������.1 w */h~������ _. ...w   W.^������,__i\/.J     U>^������t**v*_r &<������>....-.M  just mentioned is one of the largest  and most successful in the proyince,  and perhaps a few figui-es showing its  progress may be of interest.  It started in a small way in _896���������on  the modest capital of $2,512.50. In its  second year its total turnover was  $10,3-8. Sixteen years later the turnover was $149,301. In 1910 they added  the egg business and in the first year  sold 37,114 dozen eggs. In 1911 they  sold 81,708 dozen, and in 1912, 176,707  dozen.  I am sorry I have not more recent  figures by me, but I understand that  not only has the output steadily increased but the cost of manufacture  has been decreased and the prices paid  to patrons have been greater���������which  is the moral I wish to point. The  association now runs a buttermaking  plant, an egg business, a chicken fattening business, a feed business and  tin ice-making pla-*t���������nnd, I understand, is opening its own retailing  establinhment in Victoria.  Erom the foregoing it will be scon  that one thing leads to another, and I  confidently look for the time whon the  Creston Valloy will not only have its  own buttermaking plant bnt will  handle co-operatively such lines as  eggs, poultry, bacon, etc.  In New Zealand tliere are many cooperative baron factories which hihj-  cessfnlly dispose of tlio trouhle from  which we sometimes suffer here : the  finding of buyers for our pork at, Hay,  10 cents per pound, while we aro paying from 27 to 30 cents for eastern  bacon.  Before a croamory can he started  here thoro aro, of course, two important- questions to be answered : Have  wo tho noccHsary number of cows in  tho district, and can wo raise the necessary amount of capital ? Both thono  matteiB are being looked into and I  hopo will be answered in tho affirmative. Meantime, will every rancher  In the Valley think the iimttor over  t'.-ii-ultilly and be prepared to co-opci--  ato when the opportunity comet..  Apologizing for taking up ho much  of your Hpace.

Pruning Schools  In 1011, the first, year Pruning  Schools were offered, 25 were held, and  iu nm> Mi*_ imiiiiiiT .n^nui-ril to 17.  yVH i.I.chc Hc.hnokH proven to tie vnry  beneficial t-o tho fruit-growers, the  Department haa decided to otter them  again.   Homo rotpiotits   havo  already  edly be a big demand for them, it is  hoped that applications will be placed  as soon as possible..  The Department of Agriculture will  provide a competent  instructor,   and  will pay his expenses; A Tht   local   ad--  ministration of the   pruning  schools  will be placed in the  hands  of  a  responsible   local   body,   ������uch    as    the  Farmers' Institute, the Fruit Growers'  Association, or the  Board   of  Trade,  who will be responsible for the guarantee of a minimum of eight pupils, (but  not more than twelve), with the   proper qualifications, jajb a fee  of one dollar each, to take ten lessons  of   three  hours a lesson,   the school extending  over five days.   Where the number of  pupils in a district justifies, two pruning schools may be arranged   forp in  which the minimum guarantee will be  sixteen pupils, and not   over  twenty-  four.   The local organization will also  provide an orchard or orchards, where  the instructor may hold   the   pruning  classes, and a hall or room   in   which  the lectures may beheld.  ^Besides the  actual   practice in   the  orchard, of which the course Will consist chiefly, where the pupils will prune  trees under the supervision of the  instructor, there will be lectm*es on   the  theory of pruning, which will include  talks on pruning as related to the formation of fruit  buds,   and   to  plant  growth, also the subject of  top-grafting undesirable varieties will be   dealt  with, along with many other points of  interest.  The pupils will provide their own  pruning tools, the necessary tools  being a pair of pruning shears, a saw,  and a pocket whet-stone. A pruning  pole and a light ladder may also be  necessary for large trees.  Government Seed  Distribution Data  tUMtMttiiUri'M'N .**������4*������Hi.������t_tm Mi)lM<_**ti.M������w* H11N11 M  The object- of the 1916 seed dis  tribution is: The distribution of registered seed of the stable mixed farming crops among as many of the farmers of the province as possible, at the  lowest possible cost, that the farmers  of British Columbia may be enabled  to secure and in the future to produce;  within the province all the registered  seed necessary for the improvement  of the crops of the province.  Our experience in former years has  convinced us that the good accomplished by such a policy is only limited  by the number  of  farmers  reached.  Accordingly we are this year endeavoring to place sufficient registered seed to sow from one to two acres  within the reach of every institute  member. In order to accomplish this  it. is necessaay to ascertain early the  exact quantity of seed necessary and  to secure sufficient high grade seed to  meet the demand before the available  supply is exhausted.  Rules and regulations governing  1910 seed distribution :  1.

General Greene is an honor graduate j_f West Point of the class of  1870, and the author of many standard works on military history. He  gave his hearers the benefit of what  ���������he called an "intelligent guess" as to  the casualties of the war and submitted a table showing the increases  of the national indebtedness of the  European belligerents. The increase  over 1914 approximately is $20,000,000,-  000. How much of this is war debt,  of course, is problematical. The combined wealth of the aliie.*. is estimated  at $20-1.000,000,000, while that of the  Teutonic allies, with Turkey included,  is   estimated   at   S10S,000,(.���������00,000*.      ^  General Greene ados discussed the  changes in the art of warfare that  have made tho great struggle not only  the 'most frightful but also the most  interesting, from a military point of  view, of any war in history.

"The fabled stories of the countless  hordes who crossed the Hellespont  with Xerxes aud Alexander have been  far surpassed by the actual numbers  of the forces engaged in the present  conflict. The figures are certainly  startling. In Europe 78 per cent, of  the population at war, in all the world  56 per cent, of the population, involved- in the conflict; 13,000,000 men actually under arms; 2,000.000 killed,  nearly 4,000,000 wounded,' more than  2,000,000 prisoners. We cannot grasp  these figures, but we can get some  idea of what they mean by comparing  them with the results of previous  wars- We were accustomed to speak  of our civil war as the greatest conflict of modern times, but apparently  it was only one-tenth of the magnitude of the present conflict.  "At no time did the number of men  actually under arms, North and South,  exceed 1,300,000 men, and the totai  number of those killed in battle and  died of wounds on the Northern side  was 110,070, and on the Southern side  probably not more than 80,000; so that  in four years of war then the destruction of life was less than one-tenth  of the destruction of life during a little  more than one year at the present  time. In the Napoleonic wars, from  17_!6 to 1S15, tho largest army ever assembled was that which Napoleon led  into Russia in 1812 aud this numbered somewhat in excess of 500,000.  i'he German armies fighting today in  Russia oh the east and in France on  the west are more than six times as  large."     $  Referring to the war in the western  theatre, General Greene said that the  reports indicated that 2,500,000 a  side occupied the trenches from the  sea to the Vosges, which meaut 8,000  men to the mile or five to the yard,  more than the equivalent of a double-  rank formation, in close order, with  elbows touching, from end to end.  "Compared to these," remarked General Greene, "the celebrated lines of  Torres Yedras in Portugal and of  Petersburg in Virginia sink almost into  insigniiiai.ee. imagine a continuous  line in double rank across the state  of New York from the Atlantic to  Lake Ontario."  General Greene then took up a discussion of tha manner in which the  a.-mies are supplied with food and  rations, and the use of U13 motor  truck,  "It would f.eem," he said, "as if tho  internal combustion engine as applied  to the automobile has almost revolutionized that branch of the military  science which has been called logistics.'  Takimi" nn n study of Nip economics  of tho  war. General Greene said:  "The war is already long and the  end is no more in sight than it was a  year ago. The financial transactions  are on a scale even more stupendous  than the numbers of men engaged,  and the increase in national debts  fairly stagger;, the imagination. Ap-  pr.-.N.niai.ely ^'0,000,000,000 have already been borrowed, and there is  more to come.  "If. however, we consider these figure.--,  relatively to  the population and  the  (������������������-ntnated wealth of the    nations  engaged in war we find that they are  not   unprecedented.     I'd*    capita  the  debts   are   no   greater   than   thoso   of  England and France at the close of tho  Napoleonic,   wars.     Moreover  the   per  capita basis in not the only, and perhaps ma the most important basis or  compniiaon.   Wealth has increased far  more  rapidly   than  population  in  the*  iast hundred years; so tlmt tho debts  at    the present .time, aro considerably  ler's in the percentage of accumulated  wealth  than  was our debt fifty years  ago, or the European debts a hundred  years ago.
