WILLIAMS  Dominion am  Provincial Land Surveyor  Incidentally, they came to talk  over with the Boards of Trade the  proposition of organizing throughout  the Province as one big Board for  mutual benefit. It is the pnoject Dr.  Rowe has been working upon for some  time in connection with the central  institution establishing in Vancouver.  The meeting was held in Vernon, and  was well attended. The result of the  conference was the organization of a  provisional board of directors who  were commissioned to formulate a  plan of co-operation with the object  of organizing what is to be known as  a Provincial Board of Trade.  . The discussions at the meeting were  of a general nature, and took in matters far larger than that of - prospective organization. The fruit growers  and shippers took advantage of the  opportunity to get into touch with  the Vancouver wholesale fruit dealers  on the matter of fruit, and the lack  of the Okanagan brand on the coast  market.  ; The outstanding feature of this  part of the Vernon meeting was an  address by Mr. F. R. Stewart, head  of the largest fruit and produce firm  in British Columbia, and himself the  \owner of a ranch of a couple thousand apple trees. Mr. Stewart placed  the position of the Vancouver' wholesalers before the gathering. He open-  .ly Questioned the wisdom-, of such tremendous planting of peach trees by  Okanagan growers, and strongly advised the growing of apples���������������������������not the  varieties-that must be sold at once  and consumed within a few weeks,  but of varieties that will pack well  ' and keep all winter and be capable of  sale in any country until the following June or July.  : ' "You must watch the competition  you have to meet from California,  Wenatchee and Yakima. I declare  that the Vancouver dealers would  sooner handle your product than that  from the United States if it is a  business possibility to do so. But  get on a business basis. Pay attention to good, tasty packing. Grow  the late varieties that you can _.-ell  all thc year, not only 'in British Columbia and the Northwest, but in  Cip}aLJii^aiiu^amL=J������������������xaiicf^and^Gcr^  and  carload  orders    filled.

When Paddy Murphy shook the snow of Sandon  off his feet he came here, and now owns one of  finest brick hotels in the country.

A Calgary wholesaler expressed the  position of the fruit buyers of that  city. He said thc fault was largely  of the fruit growers themselves in allowing so many competitive selling  agncies to handle tho product. He  recited, for example, that thc seller  of one Okanagan exchange would go  to the Calgary market and offer  apples at $1.25 a box. Another will  come along for another exchange and  offer apples at ?1.00 a box. A third  will come and offer apples at 90c a  box. "And then," he said, "you  growers will give us hell for paying  only 90c a box for your apples."  Out of all the    discussion, in wliich  most  of     the    leading    growers   and  shippers of    the   southern end of the  Valley    participated,   a    scheme was i  evolved something like this:   That to'^'So  save  the  industry,    a  central  selling j 12!.5 (Ar)  agency  must be    established  to  ban- !

Unfortunately   his   visits   here   were  generally of a very  hurried  nature,  but on this occasion he was glad to  be able to heartily congratulate them  upon  the size and excellence of the  display,  and   the great  taste shown  in   the arrangement of the exhibits.  He was proud, as a Conadian, in the  reputation   achieved   by   the   Okanagan.   it was now a name to conjure  with, and was well known all over  the    world,    especially    in    London.

Still he felt  that he must say a few words of congratulation to the executive of the  society, and lo the energetic people  of the beautiful section of British  Columbia-in -which- he-was-now fortunate enough to find himself. If  this, he said,-is the first exhibition  of the kind ever held here, it occurs  to one that it would be diflicult to  put a limit to what the second would  bc like. However, he remarked,  such success is characteristic of the  people of the Okanagan, who 1 have  always found do well in anything  they undertake, not even���������������������������perhaps 1  may say���������������������������omitting politics (laughter).  If you listen, continued Sir Ricn-  ard, to the modest story of the local  resident of the Okanagan, you will  be told���������������������������and rightly too���������������������������that tlie  district is still in its youth as far as  development is concerned. Well, if  the Okanagan is still in its infancy,  I am convinced that the future is  one that no description, however  adequate, can possibly measure up  to. The microbe, if he might so call  it, of enthusiastic optimism seomed  to have taken hold of all the people  of this province,- and he considered  it a splendid thing for the country  that such was the case, ns such'a  feeling wont far towards aiding in  the building up of a strong, vigorous  and prosperous people.

Proud as  the representative of  this  district,   and   more   proud   that   the  people  here are showing every  day  how  they are  "making good."     He  1 ad opened many shows this season,  and there were none of them to be  ashamed of; but he had seen nothing  from any single district to compare  with this exhibition.    He asked that  the government niight be afforded an  opportunity to purchase some of the  best exhibits for display at the great  Land Show in Chicago, wliich woul]  be an extremely-important event that  would attract over'a-million visitors"  He briefly  referred   to  marketing  conditions,   saying   that   something  would have to be done to make bet-  te>   "arrangements"   for    the    prairie  markets than at present "existed..'He  had beon. in-Calgary-last week, and  had seen displayed in a store window  Gravenstein apples from -Nova-Scot-ia,  placarded  as  "The   Best on'Earth."

C. Municipalities, held at Revelstoke, last Friday morning. The convention was  very largely attended. It was convened on Tuesday and occupied two  days on very important business to  the municipalities of the province.  Jn his remarks on the condition of  thc accounting system of the municipalities of the province, Auditor  Crehan paid a splendid tribute to  the excellcnce'of the municipal records  kept by City Clerk Rosoman, saying  that he had found the* books and records of the City of Enderby and of  Kamloops ' the best kept of any of  the provincial towns and cities.  Reeve Harvey,  Point Grey,  read a  paper  advocating the  government of  cities on the same lines as parliamentary government,  the Mayor and executive  commission    of  three  or  five  salaried officers to-be elected at large  the balance of   the    council being i  , legislative body only, and the execu-  tive commission being a   portion   of  , the council, similar to the cabinet in  parliamentary     practice.

Other recommendations * included:  Giving registered owner of an agreement '-ol. sale., having-'an assessed' interest in lands and - improvement a  ,vote in municipalities; permitting voters in* municipalities-the right to pe-  Fir,t-claM Cabin* Work and   Picture Framing j tition '  fQf     any     ^^ ^   ^^  however;, to be "-able to submit by-  ,..

A recommendation was made that  all districts where milk is sold should  have power to trace to its source  and obtain-health- protection.  It was recommended that all sub-  dividers be compelled to clear and  rough-grade the roads through their  properties before the subdivisions  are accepted. It was also proposed  that subdividers should be compelled  to .clear their lands, but this was not  pressed.  A resolution from Duncan, endorsed  by the convention, advises that property qualifications for school trustees  he the same" as those for aldermen.  The placing of a government reserve on all watershed lands adjacent  to the sources of civic and municipal  water supply was urged, as well as  the establishment of a provincial police patrol along all railway main  lines.  . By a vote of 27 to 25 the convention  passed a resolution urging the Pro-  .vincial government to place upon the  statute books a model b'll covering  commission form of government r.nd  to amend the Municipal Clauses Act  so as to permit any municipality so  desiring to adopt that form of government upon a vote of the ratepayers.  It was also decided to try to get  some arrangement to prevent 'the  school boards from" continuing to'  hold their -almost unlimited rights'  with " regard " to J, money', expenditure,  and also ' to abolish the five-mill  figure, making the levy direct even if  it amounts to twice that much.  A* resolution was passed asking the  government to eliminate " from the  Municipal Clauses Act all exemptions  from taxation upon land. The resolution if carried vout;*'would involve  churches, hospitals, etc., these being  treated on an equality with other  property so far as local improvement  and land taxes are concerned.

The observance of the day, however,  was tijt .suflicient. and the desired results���������������������������a large crowd from Knderby to  see the Apple Show--were not obtained. Tt was no fault of the citizens of Knderby, however. The desire to go and the willingness to attend wore evident, hut the train service would no permit. Thirty-five or  f jrty did go, and even with this small  numher tlie coaches were crowded. If  a special train had been provided the  attendance fr311*1 this point could as  readily been made 150 or 200.  To see the show, with the regular  train arriving at 12:30 and leaving at  3:00 required some "going."
