Pa says: "Big things gravitate to the town thai can  shoulder them, and population flows to the town thai knows  how lo take care of it.''  FROM ONE MAN'S POINT OF VIEW  T^LSE WHERE in these pages will be  n i found a full report or the annual  meeting of the Fruit & Produce Ex^  change of B. C, held last week in Revel-'  stoke. On page 6 will also be found the  secretary-treasurer's annual statement of  the financial condition of Enderby's branch  of the business. One cannot study these  reports in the face-of much that has been  hastily said by men who have sold their  produce, through the Exchange, without  feeling that a very great deal of what has  been said is not only very unjust, but very  unreasonable. When we consider what  the Central management was up against;  with $400,000 in produce promised and only  $100,000 forthcoming, it is not much wonder that Mr. Hagar and his assistants found  some difficulty in readjusting..^^  lions to meet the changed conditions. But  that they did meet the changed conditions,  and, in spite of the obstacles placed in  their way, in many instances by the very  men they were endeavoring to help, is evident from the splendid support they have  been given by the prominent men of the  Province whose names appear in the report of the Revelstoke convention. It is  clearly shown that these men have absolute confidence and great faith in Manager  Hagar and his co-workers. It is shown,  further, that these men recognize how  essential co-operation is, and, as Judge  Forin put it, not to allow any private company of jobbers to get the upper hand.  That the Enderby branch has been well  conducted is conclusively shown by (he  secretary-treasurer's statement. This document is the best answer to carping cr  cism. The amount shown to be due from  the Central Exchange, will, we understand,  be paid within the next month, and next  season the re-organized institution will enter the field with a clean slate. Under the  circumstances, it is follv to talk of break-  ing away from Central and going it alone.  The producers of British Columbia cannot hope to build up and retain a steady  market, at home or abroad, while there is  division in their ranks. They must drop  petty differences; get above suspicion, and  centralize in one selling head, "just as the  successful producers of other countries do.  To talk of "breaking away" every time a  mistake appears is not sensible. Mistakes  have occurred before, and will occur again.  Co-operate, and work steadily to minimize  the errors, and the present movement to  centralize under the B. C. Exchange will  as surely solve the problem of price and  market as did the Shippers' Union for the  fruit growers of California. Ten years ago  the cry was heard in every orange grove,  "No price, and no market," and growers  cut out their orange orchards. Today,  there are twfenty acres in oranges where  there used to be one, and, under the able  handling of the Shippers' Union, the price  and market are assured from year to year.  The men who are today turning the product of their trees, over to the Shippers'  JJiiicm-at-a-b^  teen years ago, forced to peddle their fruit  about town at no price at all. The Union  has remedied all this, but it took several  years of hard fighting to do it. In a similar way, the Central Exchange will accomplish the same thing for the fruit and produce men of B. C. But it cannot be done  in a day.  T|HAT the new City Council recognize  the need of further public improvements is evident from the progressive manner in which they discussed public  matters at the regular meeting Monday  evening. This meeting did more to clarify  the atmosphere and brush aside petty differences than any meeting # the Council  has held, and we may anticipate splendid  results as the aldermen get down to work.  We are getting the forward habit.  /*  1:1  mi  I WALKER'S WEEKLY  NEWS IN AND ABOUT THE TOWN AND DISTRICT  >x  :x>c  Have, a smile.  Buy and boost for Enderby.

The policy of our city council  has been to force the home builder on a closed street to build  his home and get to it the best  way he could. Unless there are  three or four homes on a closed  street the city will not open the  street. "Build your homes first  and we'll open the street when  we can afford it," has been Enderby's answer to property owners. It is the cart-before-the-  horse policy���������������������������a policy that hampers progress and stagnates development. Our first move  should be to open the closed  streets���������������������������make a way to every  property and encourage development.

Of the  proceedings the A'Jail-Herald says:  There were quite a number of  delegates from all points, including  C. P. R. and Dominion Express officials. The following is a list of those  who attended:  W. B. Robertson, city; C. E. Handcock, Enderby; E. B. Saltwell, Enderby; G. C. Salt, Enderby; C. Eric-  son, Malakwa: E. Ericson, Malakwa;  J. Arnot, Chilli wack; R. Robertson,  Vancouver; A. J. C. Clarence, Peachland; H. E. R. Smythe, City; J. Wilson, city; H. Cunningham Morris,  city; J. Johnstone, Nelson; E.

A., Vancouver; Maxwell  Smith, Vancouver'; H. Morrison,  MacPherson Fruit Co., Winnipeg.  J. Johnstone, president of the Exchange, called the meeting, formally,  to order and Mayor Lindmark declared the convention open in a few  well chosen remarks, referring to the  first meeting of the" Exchange two  years ago and its subsequent progress. In welcoming the delegates i  to the city, he expressed a hope that  their deliberations would be for the  general benefit of B. C and the fruit  industry.  W. iVI. Lawrence, as president of  the Board of Trade, welcomed the  visitors on behalf otVthe.board. uoint.-  ven-  H'agar  ing out that Revelstoke was keenly  interested in freight rates and hoped  that the transportation people would  co-operate with the fruitmen for the  country's benefit.  A general discussion on transportation and facilities then ensue:!,  communications being read from  Senator Bosfock and \l. M. Palmer,  regretting their absence. L. M.  Hagar cited several instances when  the rates on fruit seemed our. of proportion, pointing to the fact that  rates in Eastern Canada seemed  more reasonable than in the west.  Mr.   Robertson,   assistant   general  freight agent C.  P.  R.  pointed  out  thai; he did not understand that individual questions of rates was to be  discussed at this meeting, but  pointed out that there was a general  meeting called in Victoria about the  middle of -February for the purpose  of looking into any complaints generally from all points, and if necessary, readjustments would be made  as were considered with the conditions at those points. Representatives of all districts in ,R C, railroad and government representatives  would be present.  Other speakers followed along in  the same line.  Discussion tok place on the  tilation of fruit cars, Mr.  claiming that ventilated cars were  useless and only refrigerator cars  suitable for safe carriage of fruit,  and suggested that the Pony refrigerator service be secured.  Mr.. Meline, superintendent of the  Dominion xpress Co., said that his  company would carry these refrigerators, being easily handled, and  pointed out that he would look into  the matter of fruit cars generally.  Mr. Johnston pointed out that the  B. C Government would support the  fruit industry and were anxious to  do all in their power to further its  interests. The investor must see  that he has a market secured as well  as land suitable for fruit growing.  L. M. I-I agar gave a general outline  of the procedure of the best methods  of handling and marketing fruit,  dealing with the whole operation  from orchard to market, which  proved  highly interesting.  A general discussion on the best,  methods of reconstruction of the Exchange then followed, the delegates  feeling that the Central Exchange  had..not-been -i--iLU_ou_a_b-usi-ness^harRis^f  backed up by sufficient capital. The  necessity of closer contracts by the  growers was discussed, it being essential that all contract growers  should ship through their exchange.  The lack of this had been fatal in the  past and the -Exchange had suffered  because it was not able to deliver the  goods when the fruit season was on,  on account of the fact that, the  growers' estimates fell short..  .Mr. Morrison, of Winnipeg, said  that contracts were necessary and  that lack of proper support and  capital had been at the bottom of  the trouble in the B. C. Exchange  last year. It was finally moved by Mr.  Clarence and seconded by Mr.  Smythe, that the Print & Produce  Exchange of B. C. make a full call on  balance of stock subscribed.���������������������������Carried.  Mr.   Johnstone   then   pointed   out   xxr-  that he had always been strongly in  favor of this step being taken and  was glad that it had come about.  Mr. McCleneghan, manager of the  Imperial Bank, spoke a few words on  the importance of a solid basis on  which the Exchange should work,  pointing out that the banks would be  glad   to support the movement.  The methods of procedure for  1909 were fully entered into. Mr.  Robertson, A.  G. F.

R. would  give a better freight service than  ever before.  Mr. Morrison stated that as far as  Lie wholesalers were concerned,  whom he was represen.ing from  Winnipeg; they preferred to deal  with a central organization and  would not bother with small individual shippers. The successful  operation of the B. C Exchange  would mean that the vomme of import business from the United States  would decrease and better prices for  the growers would result.       ������������������  The delegates, in the evening,  were entertained at a banquet given  by the citizens Gf Revelstoke under  the auspices of the Board of Trade.  A large number of the business men  of the city were present, all professions being well represented. Prominent among the guests were Hon.  Joseph Martin, Judge Forin and Mr.  Fan-is, of Vancouver; Mr. Robertson, A. G. F. A., C P. R.; Mr. Helme,  superintendent of the Dominion  Express Co., Vancouver, and Mr.  Maxwell Smith, Dominion Fruit Inspector.  The viands provided were choice  and dainty, and full justice to them  was clone. Mayor Lindmark presided  in the chair. Prominent addresses  were delivered by Joseph Martin,  who caused considerable amusement  in his reference to his legal and political connections, Judge Forin, Mr.  Farris and Air. Maxwell Smith, who  enlarged on the fruit industry of B.  C, its great future and progress. He  to ched on the ultimate success of  the Fruit Exchange if handled and  conducted on sound financial and  businesslike basis, and leferred with  much enthusiasm to the unbounded  hospitality of Revelstoke and her  citizens.  At the Wednesday evening  meeting of the Central, the concluding meeting of the convention, Judge Forin was one of the  principal speakers. In his address he pointed out that Ontario  fruit growers were suffering from  the effects of not co-operating,  and allowing the jobbers to get  the upper hand. The growers  now found it impossible to get  together for their own interests.  He urged that for the benefit of  the B. C. fruit industry, as well  as of the individual growers, that  co-operation be brought about,  and that now was the time to get  busy and develop the fruit industry along these lines.

Except for the  number of birds shown���������������������������only about  two hundred���������������������������it was a great success.  The show was held in the Knights of  Pythias Hall, a brick building and  lighted by electricity, and kept at a  warm and. even temperature. Birds  were shown from nearly as far west  as Vancouver, and from the east as  far as Manitoba. The judging was  done by the score card system by Dr.  A. W. Bell, a well-known fancier and  one of the foremost judges in Can.  ada. The Association was fortunate  in being able to secure his services,  but had to time their show to fit his  engagements at Calgary and Edmonton, which was the reason for holding it in January. It was to be regretted that more poultrymen did  not avail themselves of having some  of their birds judged, for they might  then have found out, as I did, that  they possessed better stock than they  were aware of. The management  undertook to sell at a charge of ten  per cent., and I was enabled to dispose of some of my exhibits at fancy  prices. The judge was most obliging in explaining where defects lay,  so that a novice could get valuable  information, and be better prepared  for future shows.  "I can assure any local poultry-  men that if they will exhibit at the  next poultry show in Enderby, they  will receive every attention and learn  a great deal; and in. all probability  find good opportunities for selling  and exchanging birds. The management are deserving of the greatest  praise for the methodical way in  which they conducted their show and  the care that they took of the exhibits, as well as for the courteous  11'ea-t-men-fc���������������������������a-cco r d-ed���������������������������v-isi tor-sr   Bank of Montreal  Established 1817  Capital, $14,400,000 Rest, $12,000,000  Undivided Profits,  $699,969.88  Honorary President,  Rt.

Allan Dobson,  which is repeated in this issue,  and will, we presume continue in  future. Mr. Dobson will, within  a few days, issue a circular to  the public, but it will be no  breach of confidence for us to  outline his proposed sphere of  usefulness, and it is one which  we are glad to see filled, and  which the public will undoubtedly appreciate. Of the real estate  business, little need be said. Mr.  Dobson proposes to work on  somewhat novel lines, which he  will himself explain; but his  other callings touch us more  closely. Enderby now has her  own auctioneer, and we hope  that the monthly   sales of mis  cellaneous property, which Mr.  >Dobson will hold, will be well  supported and well attended. It  will indeed be a boon to be able  to send all that old accumulation  of, to us, useless domestic and  other articles, to such a sale and  turn them into cash; and the  man or woman who wants and  buys them for an old song, will  be equalled pleased.  The collection of debts is always a distateful job, and yet it  must be done. Mr. Dobson offers  to do it for us, and as many of  our readers know already his  ability in this direction we prophesy no lack of support in the  collection of those old "snags."  The position of an intermediary  is a difficult one. It requires for  the successful accomplishment of  its mission much tact, the capacity for logical argument, and  facility of expression both con-  W JWW_1_1._J������������������,X.'--JL-J___73  *______  ������������������_���������������������������  *s>  ^  _   >^v .   f _T c^fW Ii' {-'   '-"'���������������������������s^  _i~_:_,--^r hy ���������������������������^^/#_Eh___)  x  tjn^li V ___^J_d������������������__7   \  EEDUOES   THOSE  BAKING   HOURS!

At some time  or another we have all felt the  want of a reliable man to whom  we could confide business of this  nature, and we feel confident  that many of our readers will be  glad to avail themselves of Mr.  Dobson's services in this capacity,  and we bespeak for him that  share of our readers' patronage  and support which his enterprise  and ability merit.

Do not eat hurriedly,  and thoroughly masticate the food.

We   know   it  without   being   told.     Not   that   he  wears  any  mark  of distinction outwardly.     J-le   may   be.,   indeed,    he  usually is, dressed very comely.    His  poise   is   easy   and   demeanor   nuiet.  We  do  not know  -why but we  look  him over from head to foot and then  proceed   to   wonder   what   there   is  about him  that attracts.     It's magnetism, Ave are told, and let it go at  that,  believing  that  God  made him  with   a   little   dynamo   stored   away  somewhere about the waistcoat.  But it is no such thing. The man  is not magnetic; he is just natural.  A long time ago he lost himself iu  his work, and Nature found him and j  put a light in him that shines and  shines.  The trouble with most of us today  is that we are so unnatural that Nature- can't use us for anything and  letsrus jog along any old way and all  the while we think we're going some.  The fact is we are just cheap misfits,  tossed into the basket on the bargain counter. Because we failed to  develop the character Nature set  apart for us, we lose our chance.  And we flock like sheep.  When Nature leaves us to ourselves because we 'failed to do her  bidding, we fix ourselves up like  dolls, and "play house" in the baby  show of fashion.  What Is natural about us takes to  the hills. We fain would do and  dare but when the opportunity comes  we side step and bob along with the  multitude.    And when we have thus  a tinny taste; we then think as  fashion dictates, and Nature turns  away in disgust.
