 V  g������w  Vol. XI.  CRESTON, B. C, FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 1919     t-  No. 18  Canyon City Red Clross Auxiliary  has discontinued operations for the  summer months, hut will resume in  ths fall if necessary. $24.25 has just  been turned over to the treasurer of  the Creston society.  Miss Muriel Knott, who has been at  the Normal school at Victoria since  lust fall, returned home on Saturday.  We -understand she was successful in  her exams., passing well up in the list  as well as obtaining a certificate in domestic science.  Dr. Rutledge, V.S., of Cranbrook,  was here on his usual monthly visit  ���������call the latter part of the week. The  Company has had such a heavy demand for horses this spring that not  for years has their   been   such   a few  head tojnspect.  ***y  There was considerable   excitement  at the Bergen l-atich in the neighborhood of the mill on Sunday, when one  of the outbuildings on the place was  discovered on tire. Prompt work by  the nlghhors prevented its spread and  the loss will not be heauy. The place  was recently purchased by A.Wesling.  Dad Browell has just purchased a  heavv work mare from C. O. Rodgers,  after disposliig of his driver to Norman Strong.  . Last Week saw a couple of low dips  hy the mercury and >t is feared that  the cool "snaps ha killed off at least  part of the strawberry crop *  of the ranches.  Mr. Barnett of Bellvue, Alta., was  here a couple of days last week looking this section over with a view to  buying land. He took a fancy to a  <*\mple of tracts and will likely be back  later to close the deal.  The Company reports quite a heavy  local demand for lumber this year,  more of it being sold in the Valley so  far this season than for tho past three  years combined.  Mr. North of Bellvue, Alta., was  here the early part of last week, and  in company with Con. Hall made an  inspection of the Valley and has decided to buy a 23-acre tract near the  C.'Uiyon, which the illustrious Joe  Grafton has the selling of. Mr. North  has gone back to bring in his outfit,  and will be basy at clearing operations  B-OiiorffiEnnoiif  S'-ggS S g^E Sggg������Sa5S5~  lly ini iiiil-^ig  I  i%t  ~B      -T     -Tm\-.    _  -4*S|B!  Victoria. B.C., June 11, 1919.  OWftl **_-  C. F. HAYES, Secretary Board of Trade,  Creston, B.C.  Deal closed for purchase of Mr. Briggs and Canyon City Lumber Company  lands at Creston. We appreciate the assistance given by your Board of Trade, and confidently anticipate your continued cooperation in satisfactorily settling and developing the  property. Development starts as soon as details of organization arranged.        C. K. WARD.  C. F. HAYES,  Creston.  Victoria, B.C., June 11, 1919.  JL  I1<U     \Jm.\~t*iK/x.     iO     Alidi-U-U.

The telegrams above, which  reached us just as we went to press  yesterday, from C R. Ward, the  provincial Land Settlement Board  director, and C. O. Rodgers, manager of the Canyon City Lumber  Co., Ltd., who left for Victoria last  Sunday to complete the sale of the  7500-aere tract, are self-explanatory and in every way satisfactory.  Reference to development starting "as soon as details of organization are arranged,'* we take to  mean that the 40-aere tracts that  are designated for soldier settlement are to be developed at onee.  Just what policy the land settlement officials have laid out for the  balance of the tract is not yet disclosed, bnt   the general impression  is that at least part of the area acquired will be as fully developed as  the soldier farms, and will be offered for immediate sale to outside or  local buyers.  Originally it was thought the  whole tract would be acquired  forthwith, but it might seem that  the area is to be taken over in instalments, covering a period of  three, years. At least this is the  impression gained from despatches  in the coast press which on Friday  last ve-^orted the deal had gone  through. Here Is the Vancouver  Daily Province  statement  on   the  Victoria, June 5.���������At its meeting  yesterday the provincial cabinet  passed an order-in-counoil approving purchase by the   .Land   Settle  ment Board of 5000 acres of land in  the neighborhood of Oreston for  uue purpose Oi general   settlement.  The tract in question is logged-  off land, and reported to be a choice  stretch. In addition to the land already now acquired, an option has  been taken by the   board   on   2500  onnac **A--00T4r.������-.ni'l  Of the 5000-acre tract, 3500 acres  were purchased at $30 per acre,  and 1500 at $35 per acre. The option  price was $30 per acre.  Premier Oliver states ' that a  number of buildings are included  in the 1500 acres, as well as certain  iniDroveraents to the land.  rx -vr wxex *~. 4- *-*, *-*  Usc-Mxr*.  tx 0 -m-*4\~"-~t^Jv^m.

Hodge arrived back from Macleod, Alta., on Eriday, with a carload  of horses. He states that part, of Al-  herta|is rather shy on rain, and unless  it comes soon there will be another  very short crop.  tE~���������������������L-*&mB  Henry Hrownrigg gels the diploma  this year for being the first to market,  strawberries. He had a couple of cups  of them for sale at Creston on Saturday afternoon. Both ho and Chas.

Several rancher-*; who hitherto have never  tackled them are putting in quite a  a quantity of plants this season.  >ce  The Simister and Parkin ranches  are the first strawberry shippers this  year. They-each had a crate nut yesterday.  Mrs. Pope is spending a few days in  Nelson this week.  Guy Constable was a, business visitor  at Lethbridge, Alta., the latter part of  the week, getting back on Monday  with his new McLaughlin auto.

President Constable had a gallery of twelye mem-  bars at the June meeting of the Creston Board of Trade, which convened  on Tuesday night, said session being  largely taken up with routine business  The various connnitteereported progress, Chairman Compton of the agricultural committee going into some  details as to what his committee was  working on, which included the  stationing of a resident horticulturist  at Creston who would be a held ivrtui.  At present the system seems to be to  have the provincial horticulturist  largely oltice men and gatherers of data, but Mr. Complon's plan is to have  him out, among the orchards every  day in the week during the season,  with such office work as may be necessary to be looked after in the winter.  The committee has also inuler consideration the establishment of an experimental plot in tho Valley.  Letters were read from the C.P.R.  stating that Creston would appear on  all their time table limps, as well as  the maps in other publications. Vice-  President Coleman replied to this effect in answer to a letter sent him last  month.  The War Trophies Board replied to  a May letter stating that Crestoii  would have (heir best, consideration in  the distribution of war trophies, and  11. F.

A motion went  The bo*s factor*"-*" commenced operations on Monday, and is busy at present on strawberry crates for local  "ranchers as well as for the custoixiers  at Kootenay Lake points.  T. W. Davis is busy at present putting down a well on the May ranch,  which he purchased a few weeks ago.  Mr. and Mrs. Sadler of Coleman are  looking after the place for him.  Mrs. Nathorst, who is on the Dixon  ranch, takes the 1919 honors for being  first to ship strawberries. She had a  crate of nice ones for shipment on  Monday���������just four days earlier than  1918, when the first crate moved on  the 13th.  A dance is scheduled for to-morrow  night at the club house, to which all  are invited. "With the berry picking  season getting under way it is hoped  there will be a hop every Saturday  night, but, of course, this will depend  on the number of outside white pickers that are here.  Messrs. Matt. Hagen, Bathie and'  Carl Carlson had their irrigation systems busy on Tuesday, for the first  time this year, Carl is handling the  old Gunder Olson place this year and  has quite a promising crop of berries  in si^ht.

Creston was never in better humor to take a day off of this sort,  and certainly no organization in  these parts could the better handle  the event than the returned men  ���������nor could any other organization  quite command the same enthusiastic support in such an undertaking  that the soldiers can.  In yiew of past experience THE  Review believes the correct procedure would be for the Vets, to  play off their own bat without any  public meeting consultations. In  every detail the citizens will back  up the effort, and with a membership of three dozen or more the soldiers have am.pie materi.il of the  right sort to at least complete all  preliminary arrangemenes.  If the berry harvest situation  will without undue loss or inconvenience admit of" it, why not have  the affair on August 4 and have the  fifth anniversary of the declaration  of the great war an every-way  fitting peace celebration.

At the May meeting the necessary resolutions were put through  which among other things asked  the C.P.R. to be sure and have  Creston marked on all the maps in  the timetables and guide books���������a  little detail the transportation com-  puiy sometimes fail to fulfil. Vice-  President Coleman hasadvised that  the request will he attended to, if  any omission of the sort has really  been committed.  The provincial police chief at Vic*  loria was requested to have signs  erected at Porthiil and other U.S.  ports of entry, as well as .at Crows-  nest whereon in letters bold enough  that he who runs might read the  information wonld V������e imparted that  in \\.< \ tho rule of the road is Turn  tn the Left. The works department  lias advised that this will be immediately attended to.  The weather man at Victoria was  asked to bo sure and sue to it that  the maximum and minimum temperatures sent, in from Creston daily  be included in the weather reports  son i, nm, i'iicii day irom tlio obsciva,-  t.'M-.y. .Mr. henisoii, the man in  f-iha.rgi-. has promised lo do so provided sii'li repi.rtf-i reach him in  time.

In the foreword the report says:  "We wish to emphasize the fact that  all our information is based upon the  blossom, and that many factors may  intervene between  now and haryesb  time to upset these calculations,"    A  very  heavy  crop   is   predicted   from  Nova Scotia, some reports saying that  it will be the very heaviest since 1911,  with all varieties equally good.    Winter injiu-y will  figure largely in Ontario's crop, but the production is expected to be equal  to or above the average.    Baldwin and Russet apples haye  suffered in many parts of the province  from winter injury.  In British Columbia early reports  indicate a 50 per cent, increase over  last year in the Okanagan Valley.  There Was a particularly heavy one of  Jonathan, Mcintosh and Wealthy,  which were light in 1918. Yellow  Newtown is not as promising as other  varieties. The crop will undoubtedly  exceed that of 1918, due to the maturing of young orchards, as well as to  to the excellent prospects now indicated. On Vancouver Island all varieties indicate a heavy crop, except Jonathan and Newtown, which are medium. Excellent reports for all varieties  have been received from the Kootenay  valley. The Creston district had a  heavy to medium bloom of early and  winter varieties, ancl a fair to medium  bloom of fall varieties.  The price of canned goods, both  fruits and yegetables, is likely to be  maintained at a high ley el during the  coming season. The cost of materials  and labor continues high, and there is  eyery indication of a keen export demand. Last year's pack is practically  disposed of at the present time. It is  unlikely that Italy, France or Holland  which have formerly been competitors  in the export market will be a factor  this year, and. if the proposed British  preferential tariff is put into effect  Canadian shippers should be able to  meet American competition.  In British Columbia cherries and  pears promise a fairly heavy crop���������  slightly less than 1918. Plums .-ind  peaches show an increase of 10 per  cent., with primes equal to last year,  and apricots 15 per cent, better in  the Okanagan. On Vancouver Island  the plum blossoms were caught by  frosts and cold winds which may have  reduced the erop iu that district.  Special local rates on Canadian  grown berries, cherries and eurrrnts in  carloads are made effective June 1st  by the Dominion Express Company  from Creston, Wynndel, Hatzic, Kel-  owna, Penticton, Siinmaerland and  Vernon, to Calgary, Edmonton, Win  nipeg. Moose Jaw, Kegina, Saskatoon,  Weynuin and Yoi-kton. The rate to  Yorkton is $2.25 per 100 pounds; to all  other points $2 per 100 pounds. These  rates expire about August 1, unless  sooner changed, cancelled or extended.  The works department at Trail has  just purchased a 1400 pound work  horse, for which $250 was paid.  Nelson is paying interest on a debenture debt of $376,000. It takes a tax of  17"s mills on land' to handle this.  Rossland council will do what it can  to have a once-a-week public market  established in that city at once.  Penticton Chinese restaurant keeper has just been fined $50 and costs for  selling hard cider to two Indians.  Grand Porks summer .curfew requires that all people under 18 years of  age must be off the street by 10 o'clock  Kaslo hears that the government  has increased its grant under tu.e soldiers'loaning act from $2700 to   $10,-  At Keiowna at least 300 acres will be  planted to tobacco this year.  iiiBoreuasrvrarni  GR-z&TOM  Best Quality  ��������� 1  POR SALE OR EXCHANGE  160 acres ef Southern Saskatchewan  land, 45 miles east of Swift Current.

After deducting this charge ihe growers who skipped through  the Union received the highest nett returns.  In addition they were supplied with Crates and other sup-^  tiies; had their accounting and correspondence properly lookea  after; avoided all shipping troubles and losses, and received tn  every way full benefit of the service which has been built up by  the Union for the benefit of shippers.  Various plans have been advanced by various firms which  had for their object the saving of handling charges. If these  plans have ever been a success there is no doubt whatever thai  some one other than the grower reaped the benefit���������the grower  taking his share of ihe saving gut in worry and wore?,  UNION PLANS include the best service in the handling of Small  Fruits ever given shippers from Creston Valley���������Service you cannot  afford to be without at the price we ask.  LIMITED  will be necessary for me to spend at  least one year at outdoor labor to get  back to my old time self. For the generous patronage extended me I wish  to express my thanks.���������J. H.
