No. 46  Csrowers Hear  Delegate Report  Although bhe severest weather of  the winter so far prevailed on Saturday, there was a turnout of at least  sixty "growers, representative of all  the sections in the Valley, at. the  growers meeting that afternoon to  hear the report of James Adlard, v."ho  had been the Valley's representative  at the B.C. growers* conference held  at Kelowna fbr three days the week  previous. The meeting was presided  over by O. 6. Bennett, who was se!  ccteu as chairman of the local growers  committee at the big- meeting two  *������vee&s preyious.     .     *"��������� v  - Mr. Adlard, who had beet) selected  as the SootenaT representative on the  Kelowna conference resolution com?  nn'ttee, was in excellent position to  report on the proceedings of that  meeting, and in an bout's talk very  thoroughly and lucidly covered all the  details qf the gathering, which was  attended by sixty accrediteddelegates.  eyery part of the interior \&.G. fruit  district being thoroughly and intell  igently represented.  Stated concisely the unanimous de  eisioii of this Snet gathering was that  for 1823 the fruit and vegetable crops  "of B C. should be -marketed through a  "E>oard of control of five members���������  three growers and two shippers.  Tbis board shall have full power to  set prices, control distribution, and  generally handle all the details of sell  ing the coming year's crop, 50per cent.  of which, Mr. Adlard stated, would  have to be sold outs:de Canada, and in  taking care of the export trade each  district would ,be subjected to proportional distribution.  guarantee the control board the  tonnage of 90 per cent, of the producers  of the Okanagan, Kootenay and other  centres represented. Even the Orientals have assured that they are prepared to join up solidly with the new  undertaking. ���������  A number of shipping concern  representatives who were present-, as-  suied that they would be only too  willing to get in line. Disastrous as  had been tbe twn nasi* seasons for ths  growers, many of the shipping houses  had fared little or no better, and any  change must assuredly be in the best  interests of all concerned. \  Another hopeful aspect of the Kelowna meeting is that although the  resolutions comanifctee had about eight  different propositions to consider and  blend into a plan that would meet  with approyal of all, this they were"  able to finally accomplish* due almost  entirely to the fact that the growers  are very much in earrnest that the  present unsatisfactory marketing  conditions shall cease, and cease forthwith, and in the accompli sn ing of-this  there was a very generous spirit of  give and take that angurs well for the  successful banding of the growers  together in support ofthe plans finally  adopted.

A glance bark over Canada's history establishes the fact beyond all possibility or dispute that lhe mot-t prosperous pcuiod in the Dominion's life embraced those vpjli'-. "between 1 i)00 and the outbreak of war in 1914. We discard the war* year1' because the industrial activity and prosperity of those  hectic v-ears v.ere the result ol war's demands ana was not sounded on u*iy  permaneiu oi sound economic ba*������ic-.  What caused thc great activity and prosperity o������ the decade and a half  lollowing 1&00 during whioh nnemploj ment was unknown, and the chief  problem lay in obtaining wovicers xo mm out s>nriplies oi* all k!������ds i'a.st -sna-ugh.  to meet the demand? What was it that led manufacturers to build large  additions to their plants, to build new factories, and to increase their permanent payrolls with tens ot thousands of men? Why was it that during ihe  period "tinder review scores of straggling. Western villages grew into towns,  and towns which had been at a standstill for long years suddenly developed-  into busy, modern cities?  Some people will answer���������the enormous railway construction which was  taking place. But this is only a partial answer. It is necessary to go farther baek to obtain the true answer. What made all the railway-construction necessary? 'People living in this country at that time know the answer.  Immigration to Canada had commenced oa a scale -previously unknown. By  boatload and trainload people poured in almost daily. Millions of acres of  land were brought under cultivation. These people required building  materials, farm equipment, supplies of all kinds. In turn the agricultural  production of the West increased hy leaps and- bounds, until the marketing  season each Fail was the signal for acute congestion on'sll the" existing lines  of railway, and millions of bushels of grain lay unprotected on the ground  awaiting shipment. The "Dominion Parliament and Provincial Legislatures  were inundated with demand for enlarged transportation facilities, more  grain elevators., increased outlets.'  It was immigration on a large scale which made railway construction absolutely necessary. It was immigration whieh created the demand ..for-more,  goods of every description and -which made the enlargement of existing factories and the erection of new ones imperative. It was the settlement of  hitherto vacant lands which turned villages into towns, and towns into cities,  and forced the construction of buildings, pavements, sewers, waterworks, el-ec- j  trie light and power plants, street, l-ailways, etc., and built up modern cities',  llTke "Winnipeg, Brandon, Regina, Saskatoon, .Moose Jaw, Calgary, Lethbridge j  - and Edmonton. *.-.''  " It was immigration which created the enormous demand for workers during the. period in question and sent wages on their upward way. Iiuaiigra-  tion did not result' iu unemployment; it created work on a scale previously  unknown in Canada. It was increase ia population, through immigration,  which transformed tEte sparsely settled Korth-West Territories into' tlie Provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta. It was increased population, through  immigration, whioh made possible the extensive telephone "systems of the  Canadian West; if. was as a result of immigration that hundreds qf isolated  districts were enabled to erect schools which jireviously had been denied to  them because of paucity of numbers to support tharci.  Nobody able and willing to work lacked -employment in those days. "Relief bureaus were unknown. People were happy, contented and prosperous,  proud of the land in which they and their children were getting ahead.  Yet unthinking people today denounce immigration, and oppose the talcing of steps to a.e.tin encourage people i.o come to -0anaj-fci and assist in the  development, of its unrivalled wealth of natural resources because, they say.  It will mean increased unemployment, a lowering of wages, and a reduction  lu the standard of living. This 'is their, theory or contention. If. is unsound. It is noi borne oui. by the facts of history. What has, heen cited  regarding Canada between L*tO0 and 191-1 was equally true of tlie United  States during a long period .������������ years when immigration to that country -was h~  sull tide. ��������� .  Canada lias now tried the policy oi* keeping immigrants out for a period  of years. It has not pr-e'-z-emed .unemployment; it lias not: resulted in greater  prosperity tor alt; it haa-not led lo development of tlie Dominion's resources.  Let the artizan. the laborer, the clerk, the man on a small salary toiling  io make ends meet during a period of commercial stagnation, give serious  consideration to these things, and not off-hand eomlmun immigration because  ot" some pre-conceived idea based on a most superficial study of economic  problems. Instead of opposing immigration, Canada's workers should be  among the foremost advocates ot an aggressive immigration policy.

Ol vi-vr*** __*f\  XXX^0X A. .xrtnv  States,  and    -ri"r������iri  Utah    moved     into     tlie   Creston  Valley   iri    1891,    being   the   first  white man with   a family to   per  rnanently locate in  this district.  His first location was on some of  the slightly higher lands of Kootenay Flats, south of Creston, hut  the highest water ever known on  the Kootenay River in 1894 flooded  him out, and carried away a good  deal of his personal property. He  immediately took up land in -what  is now known as the Huscroft  school district, near PorthiH. Idaho,  where he has made his home ever  since.  He is survived by   a   family   of  four sons, James, John and Charles  all being resident   on the original  Huscroft farm at Deer Lodge, and  G-eorge, -who about four years . ago  moved to Florida   to reside.    Four  daughters also survive,  Mrs.   John  Arrowsmith,     Mrs.    R.. JY   Long,  Mrs.   W. H.   Crawford    and    Mrs.  .Tom Ross, all of whom are resident  in     Creston       Valley. Another  daughter, Mrs. Ennerson, and two  sous predeceased him, as well as his  wife, who died about five years  ago.  Although never prominent in the  public life of the district, full credit  must be  given   the  late Mr. Huscroft for the    beneficial   effect   his  pioneer  farming   and   ready   confidence   in   the   possibilities   of the  Koolenay valley had   on the many  who followed himintofai-ming pursuits in this section of the Kootenay, while the open handed hospotal  ity that   always   obtained    at   the  first   Huscroft home will   long   be  remembered by   the first comers in  the now welt knownCr'eston Valley.  Due to   steadily    failing   health  deceased has the   past three   years  been   pretty much confined  to   his  home, but his   passing though   not  *.tieipected is none tlie less regretted by the wide family   circle and a  hont of friends.  There was a large turnout of cit  iuenK from all points in the Valley  for the funeral on Wednesday afternoon, Rev, J. A. James conducted service in the Presbyterian  Church, following which the remains were laid to rest in Creston  cemetery, R. J. Long, W. Ti. Crawford, John ArrowBtnith, Tom Ross,  Geo, Young, and T. J. Crawford  officiating as pallbearers.  The hunting season closed on "Friday  and although Erickson' gunmen   were  abroad in the forest fairly steadily all  season, the luckiest of then* all appear  to be Ernest Stinson and Dolf Weir  who * ach got two nice bucks.  Frank Celli is leaving this week for  New Yoi-k, where he expects to spend  a couple of weeks visiting friends.  Mrs. H.

Pouring through, a  narrow opening in the environing  Hills, and immediately spreading-fanlike over the grass of the a-alley, were  sheep; hundreds, thousands of them.  Even where he sat, a good quarter  mile above them, the air was rank  with the peculiar smell of.the animals  he detested, and their ceaseless  "Ba-a-a, ba-a-a, ba-a-a," sounded like  the roar of surf on a distant coast.  Driven frantic by the appetizing smell  of the sweet bunch-grass the like of  which thes" had not seen in months,  the sheep poured through the gap like  a torrent oi" dirty, yellow water; urged on from the rear and sides by barking dogs and shouting herders.  Straightening his  six  feet  of  bone  and  muscle,   the   catt!enmn   stood  up  and  stepped   to the  extreme edge of  the rim-rock, with ; liardeiaed coujate-a.-  ance and gleaming  eyes.       A herder;  saw him standing  there, in open, silhouette against the skj- line, and with  many wild gesticulations pointed him  out to his companions.     "With a quick  motion, Wade   half  raised    his    rifle  from, the crook of his arm toward his  shoulder; and then snorted grimly as  the    herders    scrambled  for shelter.  "Coyotes!"    he    muttered,- -reflecting  that    constant    association  with  the  beasts that such men tended, seemed  to make cowards of them all.  With an ominous shake of his head,  he went back on the ridge to his waiting horse, eager to bear word of the  invasion to Santry, his ranch foreman  and closest friend. Thrusting the  short-barreled rifle into its scabbard  beneath the stirrup-leather,he mounted and rode rapidly away.  Dusk  was  gathering  as  he pushed  his   way   ihrough  the   willows  which  Hinged Plah Creek and came out into  the   clearing  which  held    his    ranch  buildings.      Nestling against the foot  ot" a high bluH with the clear waters  ol!   the   creek   sparkling   a  scant   fifty  yards   irom   the   door,  the   log  a-anch  house remained' hidden until one was  almost upon  ir.

Wade had presented Santry to the girl some months before.  when the two men were on a_ cattle-  selling trip to Chicago, and the old  plainsman had not cared Ioi* her, although he had recognized'her beauty  and knew that she was wealthy in lier  own right, and moreover was the only  child of a famous United States Senator.

"Sheep���������tbusands of them-:���������are  coming iu." *-    ���������    .  ���������"What?" Santry straightened up  with a jerk which nearly capsized the  frying pan. "Sheep? On our range?  You ain't kiddin'me?"  "Nope. ,. Wish I was, but it's a fact.  The sheep are feeding on the grass  that we hoped to save against the winter. It's the Jensen outfit, I could  make that out from where I stood."  "Hell!" Stamping angrily across  the floor. Santry gazed out. into the  twilight. "That dirty, low-lived  Swede? But we'll fix him, boy. I  know, his breed, the skunk! I'll  ,Z ..." The veins in the old plains-  maii's throat stood out and the pupils  of "liis eyes contracted. "I'll run his  blamed outfit out of the valley before-  noon tomorrer. I'll make Jensen  wish    .    .    ."  "Steady, Bill!" Wade interposed, before the. other could voice the threat.
