 Vol. XI.  CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, APRIL 18, 1919   ������/  No. 10  A.sk for Armorv  want rieid ouns  The April meeting of Creston Board  of Trade on Tuesday of last week attracted the largest turnout in years,  twenty three members being on hand  for the deliberations, which were presided over by President Constable.  Interest centred chiefly in the report  of Mi. Constable on his March trip to  Victoria to re-discuss Kootenay Flats  Reclamation with the government, a  very complete report concerning  which has already appeared in The  1 Ik view. Enquiry by wire at Ottawa,  til rough It. F. Green. M.P,, elicited  the information that the resolution re  drainage, passed at Victoria toward  the close of tlie legislative session, had  not, up to April 7th, reached the Dominion authorities, but Mr. Green,  who had been wired the gist of the  resolution, hud discussed it with the  minister of the interior, and that  gentleman hud assured the member  for West. Kootenay that if the resolution was as outlined by Mr. Green undoubtedly the Ottawa authorities  would get busy on reclamation effort.  For the irrigation committee Robt.  .Stark reported that on a yisit to Nelson a few days previous he had interviewed Engineer Biker and had been  assured that after some survey work  had been completed at Grund Forks  the Arrow Creek line sui-ye**-' would be  tinished up.  On motion the hoard unanimously  decided to write R. F. Green, M.P.,  urging him to at once fyle a request  from Creston for a couple of field guns  to be utilized as war trophies and to  t>e a part of the memorial that will be  erected here to the memory of the  soldiers who served in the great war.  Mr. Green will also be asked to interview the minister of militirf. uTid~*r������*-  mind him of a few-years-ago promised  vote of $10,000 for the erection of an  ar.nory at Creston. for the use of the  local company of the J07th Regiment.  Cranbrook and Fernie a.ie asking for a  larger vote sen* tbe same purpose, and.  it is hoped the item will figure in the  supplementary estimates that will be  made up shortly.  Messrs. F. Lewis and R, S. Smith  comprised a delegation from the G.  WW. A. who spoke at some length on  matters in which it was thought concerted action hy both organizations  might have henelicial effect. The  hoard's resolution committee consisting of the president, vice-president  and F. H. Jackson will meet a like  committee from the veterans and dis-  cuss the whole question, and report at  the May meeting.  Some matters to do with improvements to the C.P.R. crossing at Fourth  Street were brought to the board's attention and these; will he taken up  with Snpt. Miiharg on nis next stop at  Creston.  Various surges! ions were made as to  getting more widespread distribution  of tho daily weather forecast which is  now being received from Victoria, but  it was finally decided to have C.P.R.  agent Swanson make two copies of Unreport, the second one to be handed in  at, the telephone central so that all interested who hav.- phonos -can get  the weather probabilities by asking  central to rend the report.

BOX SOCIAL  Proceeds to Crestoii Board of Trade Publicity Fund  The April meeting of Creston Worn-  en's Institute on Friday last was largely a juvenile members' afternoon, the  girls taking a prominent part in the  proceedings, and Mrs. M. B. Long delivering an address on "Economy for  Girls." The roll call showed 41 members in attendance.  During the progress of the meeting  the ladies were busy with their needles and succeeded in finishing another  quilt and making considerable headway on a second of these,   both   of  which  will be   given  to   the   Nelson  hospital when the second is complete.  There was quite a generous response  to the H*r,r,ea! for more books for the  library, another dozen volumes were  added, bringing the list up to8i books.  The meeting was briefly addressed by  Rev. T. McCord, who presented a resolution passed at a citizens' meeting the  Monday evening previous, and pointed  out the  need  of an  organization   of  some sort  to furnish   entertainment  and instruction along essential lines to  the young people of the Valley.    The  Institute   concurred   heartily   in   the  speaker's sentiments, and assured that  they would be out in force at the nest  meeting to discuss the project, which  will be held on April 28th.  The following  resolution  was   also  unanimously adopted, and a copy of it  will be sent the advisory board and all  the other institutes in the province for  endorsation  and   presentation  to  the  department of education.    The resolution reads: "Whereas  it is in accordance with  the  best interests and progress of  this  province, and vitallv essential  for the education of  'Is boys  and  girls, that there should be a full  university therein, it  is herewith   resolved  that  we,"'the  Women's  Institute  of  Creston, petition the government to assist to the utmost the completion   of  the scheme for the University of B.C.. which was interrupted in  1914 by the outbreak of the war."  Tha juveniles' contribution to the  afternoon's entertainment was in the  shape of a musical and literary programme to which Miss Kane contributed a 'cello s.slo, and Misses Vivanne  Moore and Edna Holmes piano selections; Miss Frances Lyne. a recitation:  Miss Phyllis Hamilton, a talk on the  Hag: and Miss Hazel Andrew, a review  of the naval light at Jutland.  Tea was served bv Mesdames Ebbutt  McMurtrie and Brousson. The collection of tin* aftei tiiion was .***:* T."i. which  always goes to the Red Cross Society.  At the May meeting roll call will b������  answered hv a quotation from a book,  giving the author's name.  iereanie  9     fl  B     I  ~^Si.t-rSiit.~^&~^  CO���������Q       mxi  Q    18     D  CARDS AT 8.30 PROMPT  ('ASH   PRIZES:   To lady hriiitfino* most nit motive looking 1>ox  and to lady wlio.se !n*x luin^.s I lie highest  |uiee.

The board is anxious to keep the  stream of possible residents coming  ���������and in increasing volume���������and  to accomplish! this funds will be  needed for advertising, etc. Although  a respectable cash balance was carried forward from 1918 and an increased membership has supplied  considerable revenue, considerable  expense has likewise been incurred  in pushing Kootenay Flats Recla-  tion and other matters with the  government while the legislature  was in session early in the year.  In other years any time funds  were needed the habit was to pass  a subscription list. For 1919 the  plan is to float a popular fund by  way of Monday night's entertainment toward which, all can contribute modestly but in the aggregate provide the board with a substantial amount of working capital.  No particular sum lias been fixed  ��������� is an objective, but be assured that  slogan,   ' Your   money's   worth   or  your money back.''  The LSetfht is Breaking  "That business men of Nelson should take steps to arrange for an excursion to the  Kootenay Flats was the recommendation of the executive  committee of the board of trade  at a special meeting."  The above intelligence is conveyed in a siews paragraph in Tuesday s Nelson Dail*7 News assd is  indeed, refreshing. Down this way  people have been wondering for  many months past just how long  Nelson business men would continue  to hibernate on the Reclamation  project���������an undertaking that may  mean so much to Nelson business  men if they are live enough to  grasp the situation and act accordingly.  For two or three years now tlie  Nelson board of trade and citizens  generally have been working them-  felves into considerable of a fury  because the provincial government  would not vote a few thousand dollars to be spent in opeuing np the  Ymir road, but beyond passing an  occasional resolution, that was gen-  spent at Nelson's very doors on the  construction of the dam to hold the  waters of Kootenay Lake at a stated level. And with tlie completion of  reclamation the trade of the territory adjacent to Creston will be  available to Nelson houses in many  hundredfold increased volume���������unless it is admitted that Creston  would, with reclamation effected,  rival Nelson as to population and  commercial importance.  In this connection it would be interesting to know why Dr. Rose,  M.P.P. of Nelson, has never on a  solitary occasion to our knowledge  ever had a word to say at Victoria  on behalf of the reclamation undertaking. The matter has been discussed in the house twice, and on  both occasions J. H. Schofield was  an enthusiastic supporter of the  scheme.    Why Dr. Rose's silence.  But, letting bygones be bygones,  The Review is gratified at what  we hope will prove slow but sure  interest in the matter by the business men of Nelson. We hope the  propo.sed visit will eventuate���������and  at a time when the fertile overflowed area can be seen to the best advantage.  the reclaimed Kootenay Flats as locations.    He writes in part:  I am not sure when I will be leaving  here for Canada. The 1st Reserve is  part of the Fourth Diyision. which is  the last division to leave England, so I  am here for three or four months at  least. It is a pity that fanners could  not be returned in time for spring  work, but it does not seem to make  any difference with the authorities.  I am  looking for some information  re   Reclamation   of   Kootenay Flats.  There  are  several   bodies  of soldiers  here who are looking for land in B.C.,  and, of course, I have been busy about  our district.    1  have  been  appointed  upon a committee of the 72nd i*attai-  lion to assist in working out a scheme  for B.C. men who are looking for land,  and managed to get some of the officers interested.     They   asked   me   to  write for information as to what was  being done on the flats, and to get any  literature,  views, etc., that the board  of trade may have prepared, and they  would ask the government what they  proposed doing with the land.    I think  the government would get busy about  it if people from outside like this were  enquiring about it.  I am taking a course iu agriculture  while waiting to be-'demobilised. A  great many are very anxious to take  the government help and try their  luck at farming. We have had a cold  wet winter;   snow   once,   not   much  frost, but very windy.  Stanley Watson, Bill and Bert Ar-  rowsmith, George Huscroft and Clark  Moore are here. There are about  15.000 men in Seaford area coming  from France daily and leaving for  Canada as soon as possible. We are  well treated, and haye no kick coming  in any way���������but it would be nice to  know when we were likely to leave for  home.  I had my infantry training about  completed when the armstice was  signed. I fancy I would have been  home by now had I stayed with the  Forestry corps. Have seen quite a  number of the Creston forestry draft  here in the past six weeks.

Ever since the Institute decided  to merge its fall fair effort with  the agricultural association exhibition the Institute has had little or  no chance to show what it could  do in the way of community effort,  and it struck us that if the Institute members possessed oF husbands  wonld bring their men folk  along with them to clean up pro  ceedings ifc would not have been  impossible to have given the whole  cemetery quite a thorough renovation, provided, of course, the right  sort of supervision was'in evidence.

Where industrial plants  can be established in the neighborhood of agricultural areas they will  have the especial advantage of having material close at hand, and of being able to utilize farm laborers during tiie iuie season*  The manufacture of sugar from sugar beets will naturally suggest itself  as suitable one for a farm in.-? community. Unfortunately very little data regarding production of sugar beets in  B. C. is obtainable, except in such experiments as have been undertaken at  I experimental farms or by private individuals who have made no   reports.  All northern countries are suitable  for the production of sugar beets as  southern countries are for sugar cane.  There is every indication that this in-  dustrv mav become a   profitable   one  - m xj t  for Canada. So far sugar beet pcodue-  tion has been chiefly confined lo the  eastern provinces, and for the last, sixteen years production has increased  each year. Where the crop was about  71,000 bushels in 1916, it incteased to  117,000 bushels in 1917. As high as 20%  sugar in the juice was obtained though  this is a high percentage.  The question of seed is an important  one in growing beets for sugar.only especially improved sugar beet seed being suitable. Two varieties giving the  best results in  eastern   Candada   are:  Vihnorin Improved, 18J tons per acre.  Klein Wanzlehen, log.tons   per   acre.  Government reports for 1017 indicate that while the best seed for sugar  beets was grown in Ontario, the largest percentage of sugar in juice was  obtained from tieets grown in Nova  Scotia and Prince Edward Island. As  the soil of these provinces is largely  alluvial deposit, the soil conditions  would lie similar to that of the reclaimed area. Indeed actual experiments-) at, both Creston and as far as  Harrop on Kootenay Lake West, indicate an equally large percentage of  sugar in beets.  Sugar beets grow in any soil but  best in rich sandy soils with a fair proportion of lime, where {.the roots are  free to penetrate and whore there is  not too much organio matter in the  soil to impair the purity of the juice.  AH these conditions can be procured  at once on the reclaimed land. The  chief drawback here would be that un  sugar beets aro to lie left, in the ground  as late as possible for pin-pose of ripi -  ning. in such rich land they develop j  to such immense si/.e, This can of  cotu'so be overcome by close planting  aud cultivating.

The seed  should be covered t liiei'i-iiai leis of an  inch to one and a quartor ini-ltes deep,  in drills ten to  twenty   inches   apart.  Thinning should be undertaken   when  plants are   about   ball' an    inch thick,  leaving I,hem hum six to   nine    inciieis  apart according to the richness of   the  soil. Small beets are   much   richer   in  sii^iir and purer in juice.  To permit the roots of the   plant!! to '  ! readily penetrate Ihe   soil    it   will    be |  j necessary to keep the   soil    loose,   and i  tree fioiu weeds.

The ripening of the beet is indicated by the yellowing of the leaves.  It is essential to leave the roots in the  ground as late as possible if frosts can  be avoided. The crop may be shipped  at once to the factory or kept in pits  until required.  A beet sogar factory Mould cost, for  buildings and equipment, on government estimate, from $500,000 to ^1,-  000,000; and to keep it in operation  would require a total area of 2000  acres in sugar beets, with an area of  85.000 acres available .for general farming-purposes, it will be seen how small  a proportion of land need be set apart  for beet growing in order to support a  profitable industry.  It is possible to make a household  syrup from beets, somewhat after the  manner of fruit juices, which can be  used for sweetining cakes as molasses  is.used. The process was worked out  by U.S. department of Agriculture  during sugar shortage, and is recommended by the Canadian department  of chemistry of the experimental  farms. So that a little garden experiment in growing sugar beets need not  be wasted for want of a factory.  NOTARY F-UBUO  iN&URAeetmdE   ���������     REAL.
