 Vol. i  CRESTON, B.C., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 23, 1917^  No. 6  ���������:���������*>.  1916  Exports of Creston Valley  Livestock and Farm Produce $35,000 Fruits, Honey,  Cider, Vegetables $85,000���������Lumber, Poles, Posts  $160,000���������22 Cars Strawberries, 6 Cars Raspberries  ���������47 Oirs Apples���������3 Tons Honey���������2400 gals. Cider  A modest estimate of the value of,  '���������"v d������|>tJti������    xxx,xx,     vxxO    <0?t."3i/*>ii    m SulxSy  ���������as shown by the shipping' returns  compiled for the Board of Trade by R.  M. Reid for the year 1916, will quite  cosily reach $280,000.00, which is  including $17,000.00 payments fop  cattle and hogs killed locally, -some of  which sboulei undoubtedly figure in  the exports as well.  Agricultural Exports Gain  Commencing with what we call agricultural exports proper 1916 shows  a. steady increase in the value of its  shipments, with the exception of  Horses. Last year the export of these  animals fell from 63 to 47 head. In  all the other lines there is a marked  increase. In Cattle the jump is from  143 to 165 head. The export of Eggs  shows a gain of 25 per cent., and the  Butter export is also in the same class  as to i ncrease, and this despite the  fact; that 1040 gallons of cream were  shipped to the butter factory at Cranbrook during the season. The quantity of. Dressed Beef handled. locally  ro*-*e from .80 to IS8 carcasses, and  Dressed Hogs from 217 to 279. There  is also a slight gain to be noted in the  output of Live Fowl last year.  In the strictly agricultural department the value of the commodities  sold this * year is easily 837,000.00,  which takes into account $1,700, which  is the value placed on> th.e ^idiB*Wihijg>  ped out of Creston. '"���������*'  Great Honey Year  The "Valley beekeepers had the best  year ever. The quantity of honey  gathered is 5600 pounds���������almost four  times the harvest of 1915, and almost  : double that of 1914, which was also a  grand year for bees. s  Lumber Trade Active  In the Lumber industry there is an  enormous increase- in outputs The  shipments of Lumber, Posts and Poles  fen* 1916 is 473 cars, as compared with  191 in 1915, and 13 cars in 1914. The  manufacture of Fruit Boxes ih also  away over the year before, the total  being almost 80,000 laHt year as compared with 59,000 in 1915. Not taking  into account the fruit boxes at all the  lumbering industry in the C ich ton  Valley had an out-of-the- Valley trade  of not less than $160,000.00.  $83*000 for Fruit, Etc.  The total export of Fruit and Vegetables last year will run close to 100  carloads, which is three less than  in 1015, and an official estimate of  the worth of thei crop, including Cider  and Honey, is $84,0000.0, us computed  with $85,000.00 in 1915.  The big falling off is In Tomatoes  and Plums. In the former the slump  is u matter of 19 carloads, while Plums  aro down at least two cars. In spite of  none too fayprable a season Apples  went up from 20,871 boxes to 27,800, or  from 37 to 48 carloads. Strawberries,  thanks to a greatly increased area at  Wynndel principally, rewo froni 11,788  crates to 17,080 crates. There is also  .ui lucruuMtj iu i-iic Xviispburry output of  about 800 crates. Potatoes show a  jump of almost 50 tons, or bettor than  a two-carload increase*', though in  neither '15 or '10 was thu crop in the  same class ii1* 1014 when thero were 221  tons shipped from Valley point**.  All Fruit Shipping Up  In all the other lint's of fruit there is  a. hiiiiiU ine roil Hft to be noto'l, Not ������t  very heavy gain, of con mo, but atlll a  very satisfactory showing when It is  remembered t hot an early-season frost  last year played havoc with somes of  the CbervidH aud Peached.  Tho dcercnon in Tomatoes is. of  course, abnormal. Had tho season  been un average ono a much bettor  showing would have boon made, but  bv no moana up to 1015 standard, iir  the iinmbur e>f plants set out was much  ���������imulloi- than uuual. This mum* obsor-  vatlnn applies to almost all thu vegetables. Prices of late have not be*cn  as attractiyo an in tho palmy days of  '12 and '13, and tho rancher in gradually going out of vegetables in eomu.-  ������inonce and taking more; or Ions to soft  rrnitij.

The boys are also indebted to Sergt: Crowe of ths 107th for  a nice string of fish, especially as they  are aware that in an endeavor to land  a monster char the sergeant was precipitated into the- ice waters of the  Goat.. Although he made a quick  getout of the river Sergt. Stewart reports that Mr. Crowe had both coat  pockets filled with fish when he got  ashore.  For the convenience of all who make  donations of ^ any_ sort Postmaster  Gibbs is opening the shop next the  postoffice as a receiving place for any  .presents of this sort. He guarantees  that all parcels left there will be delivered to thearmory and duly aeknow.  ledged. This is a convenience the  ladies will appreciate as it will save  them the trip to the soldiers' quarters.  Splendid Year for  veiling  A  Provincial Police  &  wo  OECI  \snes  are the-exportsjof Cream to the butter  factory at Cranbrook, and an export  trade in Cider from a few of the local  ranchers which went to 2400 gallons.  Of this 1800'gallons were shipped from  Jas. Compton's ranch alone.  A Marketing Triumpfr  A feature to fche year that is worth  noting is that 1916 saw an export of at  least a dozen straight carloads of  Strawberries. The bulk of these were  from Wynndel, with some crates  nicked no at Alice Siding, Creston  and Erickson to complete the load.  Several of these cars went on to the  Winnipeg market, arriving in fine  shape, and   considering   thoir unpre-  Fiared-for arrival at the tail-end of a  ate senson the prices realized were  quite .satisfactory. In view of the  still heavier production of strawberries  this year this experiment in shipping  to Winnipeg is cocpected to mean much  to the soft fruit industry in the Valley.  Appended is a detailed statement of  the shipments for tho past year, as  well as the figures for the two previous  years, which will be. found valuable  for exact comparisons. ���������  FV*f.������.������Qf,i,v Fi  VSm  lft  Over Half Filled  Provincial police Forrester on Mon  day pulled  off a quick  capture of. a*  gentleman,    one   Lee     West,     from  Missouri, wanted for theft ofaquan  tityof wearing apparel  belonging to  some of the   men  employed iri  u*es-  champs camp near Port Hill.  West drifted in.from .Idaho on Friday afternoon and. was. given a job as  a woodsman. On Saturday morning,  however, he pleaded illness as an excuse for not going: to woi*k, but shortly after the men had gone out he proceeded to stock up with a suit of clothes  and a couple of outfits e f underwear,  and then oeat it.  The local policeman got word of the  theft on Sunday morning and-figuring  the thief would hit for the C.P.R. he  visited Kitchener on Sunday, and discovered West had spent the night in  one of the shacks there West seemingly found things to his liking at  Kitchener where rie remained imtil  Monday.'- arid when Forrester came  back on the noon train he caught  West in the act of starting Out on an  eastward bike.    '  The prisoner was tip before J.P.'s  Watson and Mallandaine on Tuesday  and was given six months with hard  labor in.Nelson jail, to which point he  was taken the   same day.    Provincial  tioliceForrester yesterday received a  etter from the.Idaho authorities to be  on the lookout for a man who got  away from the law officers while being  taken from Bay view, Idahy, to Stevens  County, Wash. Barring a slight discrepancy as to tbe color of the hair  West's descriptioe tallies with that of  the wanted-man to a nicety.  The most harmonious and all-round  satisfactory meeting the Creston Fruit  Growers Union has ever had in its  history *������?as that of Tuesday afternoon,  when the statement and various reports on the 1916' business "was up for  consideration and adoption.' Those in  the habit of attending these gatherings, but who were not on hand this  year, will get a good idea- of how  satisfactory everything was when we  say that the whole business of the  meeting was transacted in less than  three hours, and there was not a  single complaint on the way the year's  business was transacted, and be it said  right here that over $40,000 of produce  was handled.  W. "������ . Jackson* .president occupied  ths chair, assisted; by, J. W. Hamilton,  the Union secretary. Mr. Hamilton's  financial statement showed that the  net earnings of the Union from commissions on sales was' $4368.31. And  after paying the ranchers in full for  everything marketed in 1916, aa well  as paying every other expense incurred in 1916, the Union finishes the year  almost $400 to the. good���������$386.84 to be  exact.  In addition to this good work during  the year all back debts to wholesalers  and other bills payable, amounting in  all to $2100, .have been paid and in  addition 20 per cent, of the money  oyerdue the ranchers for 1914 and 1915  XXKXS9 ca.iow     WGCJia   ������su/&u������       m-fx     ja/jjjoc      [.ucoc  three latter payments did not come  out of earnings for 1916. The finance  for these was obtained on the 5 per  cent, levy authorized on all shareholders on the basis of produce sold in  i915.  Shareholders who were previously  shouting for sound business management and economy could find little  fault with the balance sheet presented.  In 1915 a matter of $2,388 is shown for  '���������General Expense." In 1916 the*  figures under this head are $948. Another item is the "Bad and Doubtful  Debts" which in 1915 were put at  $1,222. and iri 1916 are shown at $146.  While our old fi'iend "Rebates" which  were $1,661 in 1915 have no place on  the 1916 state-merit^at'ahV ��������� w -*���������  R. B.

E.  Mallandaine, who has sacrificed his  rank as major and officer commanding  the 107th Keioteuav Regiment to revert to cuptain and take command of  the Forestry Draft. When men of the  stamp e*������f Capt. Mallandaine can leave  their large local interests to go overseas with a draft it should be an example to the rank and file of Kootenay men to make some sacrifice in the  interests of the cause und country.  Men are wanted for the Forestry  Draft who are sound in health, who  have had experience in the woods and  in tho handling of timber. Expert  millwrights and lumbermen aro specially needed. Tho Forestry Draft has  already half its allotted membership  and tho privilege of belonging to this  corps will be reserved for thoso who  have a knowledge of timber work and  are fit.   Join now.  Lieut. II. Venus is here and is now  second in command. Lieut. McLoon  is putting men of tho Draft through  drills morning and afternoon. From  present appearances tho full strength  will bo reached at an cuily date, when  the Draft will proceed to tho Old  Country. A separation allowance is  iimde to all married men and tho  Patriotic Fund will-look after the  children. Could there bo a finer  opportunity for able bodied lumbermen to soryo tho country under popular officers and with us flno a unit as  has left Kootenay to do thoir bit.

Stewart,  was up before Magistrates Mallandaine and Watson on Saturday morning on a charge of passing a worthless  cheque on a Cranbrook me>rchant, tho  charge being laid by Chief of police  Hershey of that city, who arrived in  Creston the day previous,, to be at tho  hearing.  Dixon had been lodged in the~Cres-  toM lockup on the Thursday eveniug,  having been gathered in for disorderly  conduct, and had given his name as  Stewart. However, when another  prisoner was brought in the following  morning as he was going past his cell  Dixon complained to Constable Forrester that the newurrival was wearing  hiB hat, Forrester took possession of  the hat and on examination discovered  it bore the. initials "L.D." Tlio incident made tho local police officer  suspicious of his man and on taking a  closer look ovor Dlxori ho came to the  conclusion that hc answered the description of thu in tin vvauluu ul Cranbrook for passing the bad cheque, and  the initials in tho hat being those of  the wanted.man tho Cranbrook polico  chief was wired that thc fellow hc was  looking for was haro.  Dixon was turned over to the Cranbrook officer who returned with him  on Saturday, and at .the trial at Cranbrook on Monday Dixon was committed for trial.

Dealing -with;vapples particularly  Mr. Staples went into the marketing  problem thoroughly. From records  kept of different cars sold he had no  trouble convincing that the high prices  wero obtained from carloads thut had  the big por contuge of Nos. 1 and 2.  proving conclusively that those wore  tho grades that tho market, and particularly points on tho Cro.w line wanted. From another set of records he  alBO gave- the figures to show  that 47  Ber cent, of those dealing with the  'nion hud done a very large amount  of independent celling, and from the  limited quaintity sold through the  Union tho figures were there to show  that these independent and part Union  shippers had marketed their low grade*  apples very heitvy through tho Union  and sold, presumably, tho hotter stuff  themAelvcs. Mr. Staples all too ovidant  contention was that whilo shareholders continued to troat tho Union that  way It was manifestly unfair to those  who sold ail their produce through the  Union, and it was absolutely impossible under thoHO conditions to expect  tho average prico to bo as high as it  othorwifio would bo. That Mr. Staples  argument** vvuro incontrovertible was  evidenced in that his report wasadopt-  od without discussion���������none of tne  latter being forthcoming.
