Royal Agricultural Commission
Holds Profitable Session at Enderby
The .Provincial Royal Commission
on Agriculture, consisting of Messrs.
W. H. Hayward, A. Lucas, J. Kies-
ton, J. J. Campbell, S. Shannon, W.
Duncan, with C. B. Christensen, secretary, and P. M. Coffen, official
stenographer, arrived in Enderby on
Wednesday morning and in the afternoon, at the City , Hall, held a sitting to enquire into agricultural conditions in this district. - "  "
Prior    to    taking   testimony,    the
members    of    the' ..Commission   were
taken in autos as far soutB"as Lans-
down and    thence   by   the east" road
past the homes -of   F. Hassard" and
J.XA. Fortune "to   the King Edward
hotel for lunch.     The purpose of this
trip was to   give    these gentlemen a
clear ,conception    of agricultural conditions where 'the land- is developed,
-   "    and-they were   given another tripsin
.:-  'the evening-after the taking of testimony,  north as: far.as Mara, _ to. let
r-.---- them" see    conditions    as    they^exist
��������� - - - where development -'. is   .necessary,' on
.land quite as good as.that developed.
.-- -*   " These ., drives; '.provided' /for by the'
... -"-"_i_y ^ conjunction with.the..conimit-
','/ - tee, were intended    to'give the Co'm-
/ . ,  missioners a clearer "understanding of
conditions as they here exist, and to
_    '   assist them -in ." forming .their conclusions in  -matters . discussed    by-the
witnesses before them.' ���������      " .'
'Mr.\, Hayward,    chairman,   of   the
^Commission,- briefly pointed out the
-    salient facts in connection with their
work, and invited    anyone interested
���������    to give evidence before them.
���������  --   '  Acting    Mayor'   Worthington-    was
.'first invited'to give evidence.     In'so
doinsr:.i/^T^i^t^v\hingtpn} pointed out
, ;vthe'advarita^ls%of>Vhe'<district for di-
.    yy.'versi&^dy "farming,    and    recited the
-"'- ~7iifflculties "'that had been encountered
-" '""here through faulty marketing agencies and lack   of   co-operation.     He
also mentioned the need^oLsome_kind=
pro-;
annuallv
of assistance to^ the small farmer in
the clearing of the land. At the
present time, Mr. Worthington declared, it was ' virtually impossible
for the farmer to get any financial
assistance, either from the banks or
the ioan companies., while the rate
charged on private loans is 10 per
cent. Questioned, as.'to advisability
' of - some " provision" beilig" made for
cheap money to the farmer, Mr.
Worthington favored such a step
strongly, , but believed it should be
loaned only to the settler desiring to
clear his land, and that the money
should be .advanced and used only for
a specific purpose.'
"-Mr.. Little, as chairman of the committee appointed to place evidence
before the Commission, next took
the chair. He said the greatest need
of thc farmer in this district is, not
"cheap" money, but ready money and
a long-term loan. The three-year
loan policy in vogue is useless to the,
average settler on unimproved wild
land. He must have time' to make
the land produce the commodity that
will ^sell to' pay the annual assessment for principal and interest* It
would be practically impossible to do
this on sav a ��������� three year loan. The
first marketable crop that can be got
from newly cleared land is the third-
year crop. With this the farmer
might be able to meet an annual
long-term payment, but he would
never be able to pay off the interest
and principal   the   third    year after
question of organized marketing was
already adjusting itself, through the
organization of the Central Selling
Agency. . He called attention to the
need of a telephone system to every
farm house where the district population warranted. He believed many
of the problems which - now look so
serious would gradually adjust themselves if the farmer would co-operate
and if long term loans could be provided either c by the government or
through a bank.'
Frank Hassard was'next called. He
was asked to give particulars in connection with the handling of his own
farm. - He said he-had 540 'acres, or
which 430-acres- were under cultivation and producing a crop. Since
taking over this ��������� property he' had
cleared 60 acres or- more,- at\a" cost
of $35 per,acre where -hi������ attended to
the work himself, ,'and -VO i*" "acre
where he paid others to. do the_work[
Hay was his principal'crop! He
duced from 250 to 300-tons
in addition to'"the 3 8b/ton's_fed}op
tnefarm/to his**dairy stock",' horses,'
etc.- , .vAlfalfa and 'timothy-clover hay
are' the. varieties grown. Under-irrigation, alfalfa wi:l' produce four tons
to'the acre to "2 of timothy; without
irrigation the' average yield is 2f
tons of.alfalfa to 2 of timothy.- He
believed- timothy-clover was the best
variety-for the market, as there was
less chance of , loss in timothy by
weather conditions.c He also found
it advisable to plow the clover under
every/third, or fourth year. He did
not "find any difficulty in disposing of
his crop- ..He sold 265 tons the past
season, and within ' the'past two or
three weeks could have sold another
15 carloads,if he had it to sell.' He
found that the great thing in successfully handling a crop of hay was
to evolve a system such as he was
^^iLJ^hereby^the^hay^could^be^put"
into the baler   right from the cocks.
Questioned in regard to the road
problem, Mr. Hassard said it was
not a question of better labor on the
roads, but a better system.
"Do you' think if contracts were
called for there would be better results?"   "I do."
' ^'_'Ile.ecc! *n-?- strong _on_co-opera"-
tiori in his evidence before the Commission.    "Why has not co-operation
been tried here," and if tried why did
it fail?" "Tt failed two years ago
when the Central Exchange failed."
. He. strongly favored some policy of
Government assistance, and thought
a government - audit of the affairs of
the present' -Central Selling Agency
should be - insisted upon. In the
matter of --labor, Mr. Teece said he
had found white labor to be the most
satisfactory. He'.also favored the
unionizing of farm laborers.
C. ,S.  Handcock- explained   to   the
Commission the facts relating to the
rise and fall"bf the Central Exchange
two years'.'ago',   and   stated that in
view of past   experience'it was most.
essential   that    the    present' Central
Selliftg Agency/ should be subject to
frequent   government   audits, as this
won1<*i have   a    tendency to disabuse
the, minds of many who still had. oc-.
casion to recall the'sting of" past experience  in  similar-transactions. ' -'

transpired-then "he   was strongly of

should keep in vtouch. with, the ,Central' -organization    now    forming, -as
this would~materialiy -assist the pro-,
moters in' re-establishing that coxiiy
dence " between   grower ��������� and    seller,"
which is. so    essential   if    the    new
organization is to be made as useful
as it should be.
R. J. Coltart told the Commission
that he considered the great trouble
at the present time was ^ thn fact
that too many men were holding
down land in tfce expectation of a,
raise. Too many of them were liv-
jng on_the���������land ls=n o t=farmi ng=.it*=He=
did not believe in money at a lower
rate of interest to farmers, but did
favor a longer term loan.
,-Messrs. Keith, Williams, Mack Sr

to take the members of the Commission to Mara and , back by way of
Grindrod to Enderby, much to the
pleasure of the visitors.

Mr. Hayward, chairman of the Commission, speaking: for himself and his colleagues, said at the conclusion of the sitting:
"We have enjoyed listening to the evidence placed before us
here. It has been one ol the most profitable sessions we have held.
We appreciate your splendid treatment of the Commission, and congratulate you on the completeness of the evidence placed before us.
You have put your evidence in a practical way, and then have given
us an excellent opportunity of seeing for ourselves the needs of the
district. The Commissioners are- all practical men. They can
judge from what you have placed before us, wherein the agricultural industry could be benefitted here. We can see the possibilities before you. You have shown a vital interest in the work of
the Commission and we can assure you that we are going to get
right down to the bottom of the' problem's before us and when we
make our report we believe we will be -in a position to point out
some means whereby the agricultural industry of "the Province may
be placed where it rightly belongs." Something must be done to
stop this drain of thirty or forty millions of dollars which go out of
the Province annually for farm products that should be produced
here."'*''   7.

"  Courses for the Canadian   or  British Acadeiry  Examinations  SECRET SOCIETIES  FARMING  AND  PLAYING  AT IT  lt is a safe statement to make that  there is not    a   portion of Kootenay  in which wihl land, as an'investment  for the settler who-wishes to make a  home and support a family, is worth  more than one dollar an acre.     This  looks   like   "knocking" hut   it    is a  fact,   nevertheless.   When  the cost of  clearing is  taken    into  consideration,  it will be found    to be correct.   The  recent real estate boom at the coast  resulted   in   inflated    values    on  all  lands in    the   province.        Even the  government raised   the price of first-  class    wild   lands   from ?5 to $10 an  acre.      Land    values    will    havo   to  come  down    before practical  farmers  can be induced to come from the Old  Country and settle in British Columbia.     The holdings would have to be  sufficiently   large   to enable the emigrant to go into mixed farming. The  amateur rancher, who has an income,  may be able   to    exist   on theory,  a  small fruit   ranch   and a remittance,  but those people clo not help to any  extent in   the   development of a new  country.     They help in a social way.  They spend their   money freely, they  build    nice   residences,    lawn    tennis  courts, and generally adorn the scenery; but   they    don't grow anything.  They    buy   their   butter, their milk,  their   horse   and    chicken   feed,  etc.  They sell   a   few   eggs, turnips, cabbages and  potatoes,   and possibly a  few bunches of celery annually.   I bey  don't farm..   The real farmer goes at  it in a business   way.       He can't'afford, to .pay more   for- the land than'-  it will give him in returns as-a business   investment.       At - present    the  people of British Columbia are doing  farming on paper and in lectn -rt balls  We need the   "man    between the pIoav.  handles  with brains.���������������������������Slocan  Record.  T.  K.   SMITH'S  MILL DESTROYRD  "That appeal has been, heard not  only in China, but all over the world.  The apostles of Almighty God in  Canada, the sunny land of ������������������the Maple  Leaf, have responded as quickly as  have their brothers in Christ across  the border. Foremost among them  in this regard stand tlie churches of  Montreal. To these and to all  others whose ear has caught the plea  of our President, I wish to express  in my poor way my great appreciation of all that they would do for  our beloved country.  "As you lift up your voices unto  lhe Lord in behalf of China, I beg  of you to do so with a knowledge of  her present dilliculties, with a heart  attuned to her cry of distress, with  a vision of her tremendous possibilities for the future.  "China is at the . parting of the  ways. She stands on the edge of the  right road. But just how to go forward, just how to meet and pass  over the jagged obstructions that  loom, up before her���������������������������these are the  things she wants to know. Some, of  these obstructions have been there a  long, long time, and we are responsible for them. Others were put in  our path by hostile forces, outside  influences. Please pray for them  too.-'  "Our cry now is for inspiration and  guidance that will enable us to distinguish the real from the unreal, to  follow the teachings of our friends  and to shun the bad advice of our  enemies, to set firm as a big stone,  a genuine and not a playhouse republic, to lead the Chinese people into a day that will last for ever, a  day whose brightness will benefit  foreigners, Tibetans and Mongolians  as well as Chinese.  "To do all this, we feel the need  of help such as is not within human  power to give. We appeal to the  Great Spirit who has so fittingly  been called the Supreme Architect of  the Universe- God . was the Confidant, the Guide of Washington, of  Lincoln, of Gladstone,r.'of Queen Victoria." "Through ' "you : we- "would invoke His r. blessing upon our great  undertakings."  "/  iMk'.'J  KEEP BUSY  It is impossible for a man to become anything but a miserable sinner  while he carries that thought in his  mind. If the mind is occupied with  thoughts of our importance as messengers or mediums through which  the Divine Power is working His own  purpose, wo forget all about the  matter of sin and become ready instruments in the hands of the Power  that is in and through and behind  all.

Mis communication illustrates thc attitude of the Oflicials of  the Chinese Government toward  Christianity. Regretting his inabil-  ty to be present at either meeting,  ���������������������������Mr. Lu stated, "1 shall join in thc  prayer at Ottawa." The following  is his letter :  "The Chinese Government requested  all Christian churches throughout the  Republic to set aside Sunday, April  27th, to pray with one mighty voice  for the new government, for the President of the Republic who is yet to  be elected, for the maintenance of  peace, and for the election of strong  and virtuous men to office.  such a wharf at the point near Dr.  Smith's residence, such wharf to be  an extension of the " public street  which extends to the shore.

It was not a celebration of fuss and  fume, noise and clatter, bunco and  bicker. It was just a day of quiet,  common-sense fun and fellowship,  with a pinch of the unusual now and  then to spice the pudding. It -a as  more of the type of the old-fashioned  celebration, when everybody gathered  to see everybody, and together enjoyed the things of common interest.  There were many interesting features  of the day, and the spirit back it all  of them was one of good-fellowship  and sympathetic hearing.  The day opened bright and, 'air,  and long before breakfast the iini.sh-  ing touches were put to many of the  business-house     decorations. 1 he  town looked bright and gay v. hen the  first of the visitors began to ������������������rrive  from the surrounding country. By  this time the Enderby band was'en  the street adding sweet strains of  "music to the common feeling of happiness noticeably prevalent.  At the recreation grounds the ladies in charge of the various refreshment and dinner booths, were as  busy as bees preparing the " good  things for the hungry crowds which  were to follow. -  At 9 o'clock the   first game of the  day was called   at   the grounds.   It,  was advertised   as a baseball game, ,'  between the O.S.M. team and an ag-,  gregation of   players    dubbed  phy's     Spuds"���������������������������or   words . to  enabled him to hold the log down to  a speed where he could handle it.  After vainly trying to dethrone his  opponent by quick stops and rapid  changes, Adsit gave way to Robinson and started the log in the direction that Robinson seemed to favor.  It was then a simple test of speed.  Here Adsit's foot work counted. He  set a pace that Robinson could not  keep up to, and soon had his man in  the water. It was the intention of  three Revelstoke log-rollers to enter  the contest for fche $50, and the completion of this contest' was delayed  until after the arrival of the Revelstoke strain, but the log-rollers failed  to get on the log, and the prize was  awarded to Adsit.  There were no entries for the motor  boat prizes.  In the grease-pole contest there  were only three entries: John Newby,  Archie Kay and T. Eaton. After  many attempts had been made by  the contestants and all _of them repeatedly falling into the river, it was  decided by the judges to give the  prize to. Archie Kay, who proceeded  to divide it with his fellow contestants. ' \  At the conclusion of the water  sports the procession was formed on  Cliff street arid marched to Maud,  thence north to Mill-, west to' George,  south to Clifl-' and east to Vernon  Mur- [ Road and thence to the recreation  that ��������������������������� grounds.

Charlie Louie won 1st,  with Jimmy a good second. Alec  was put into the water early in the  game. ' -  The next event was an Indian canoe race. This was also a good exhibition, though there were not'entries enough. to_make ,the event. hotly  contested. Charlie Louie and Mi-  chell took a dug-out against Micho  and Jimmy, in a blue Peterborough.  The race was from the bridge north  ,to a buoy placed a quarter of a mile  down stream, and back to the bridge-.  The dug-out made the shortest turn,  and managed to get the choicest position in the still water coming home  against the current. Micho and  Jimmy held close * to their heel, but  were unable to overcome the advantage secured by the dug-out. First  money went to Charlie , and ^Micliell,  and the second to Micho and Jimmy.  There was considerable disappointment felt in the special log-rolling contest for a, prize of $50 put .up  by P. H. Murphy, ��������������������������� for white men  only. Irwin Robinson and S. E.  Adsit went on the log, and for a  while it looked as if they were to  give the best exhibition of the day.  Adsit had the better of his opponent  in the matter of agility and footwork, but' Robinson had the weight  to counterbalance Adsit's agility.  Adsit was the. quicker in the jockey-  ticularly the turning out" of -the Enderby squadron of the B. C. Horse,  the Boy Scouts and the public school  children. Capt.

There were'twelve en-  tries, many of them the fastest runners in'-"the district. They were  drawn in two lots, the first and sec  ond'in each heat .to run off.  Following were the entries: ,C.  and Dean Fravel and 0. Jones of  Enderby; Robinson .of Salmon Arm,  Simpson���������������������������Deep "Creek; Patchell,"Harper and Henright, Kamloops;' A. H.  and E. W. White and Wilson, of Armstrong. In the first heat Dean Fravel and Robinson won 1st and second;,and in'the second heat the honors were divided between Henright  and E. W. White. In the deciding  heat these four runners came almost  breast and breast across"the field,  and there was very little distance  between them at the finish. Fravel  drew down first money and Henright  second.  In the high jump, Henright won lst  at 5 ft. 4 in., with Robinson second.  Brisbane, Simpson, Smith and D.  Fravel were the "also rans."  In the pole vault the local men  were not able to hold their own with  the visiting athletes, though Offie  Jones made a good showing until the  pegs climbed to eight feet. The entries were: C. Fravel, J. Henright,  S. Harper, 0. Jones, V- Simpson, H.  Robinson. Harper and Sampson  "sawed off" at 9 feet and the judges  split the money between them.  In the 220-yard dash the .following  entries were made:   E. W. and D. H.  White, D. Fravel,  Simpson and Wil-  json.     It was   a   fast race with an-  (���������������������������>  (other   close    finish.    In    this E.  W  White won lst, and D. Fravel 2nd.

Being immeasurably nearer to the main line  than others of its class, it has thus  an asset that ensures it the very  first regard as a farming centre, and  also as a commercial, manufacturing  and distributing .point.  As to Enderby's farming capabilities  these have for many years been  known and abundantly proved. The  nature of its farming powers may be  classed under three heads: mixed,  dairy    and    fruit    farming. ���������������������������   In  all  ENDERBY METHODIST  CHURCH  Sunday Services���������������������������Divine Worship at i  11 a.m. and 7:30p.m.; Tuesday, 8 p.m. I  Epworth  League;   Thursday,  8 p.m.,  Prayer Meeting.

Here is a  line which no competitors can beat,  in the firmness and general quality  of the fruit, and is one which is ever  increasingly productive.- The apple,  as all know, needs a cool and vigorous climate, with natural moisture in  a hillside air. Here all combine to  make the apples of Enderby a temptation in themselves. Its winter apples are well known as the apple  "that stands up best," and once eaten are never to be forgotten for  aroma, flavor, juice and general excellence. The storing of these fruits,  the last picked in the fall, deserves  special care, and by placing them in  trays,' with proper spaces, they may  be preserved throughout the year,  and, kept in this way, are ready at  any time to be put on the market at  a time when the price is highest.

Prices reasonable for good  service.     Address���������������������������  F. D. ABBOTT  Cottonwood Point.  A $225 house greeted the Tabasco  Minstrels at the Opera House last  Wednesday evening, and we have yet  to hear one note of disappointment  from anyone fortunate enough to be  present. The unanimous verdict of  the audience was one of approval���������������������������  unstinted and enthusiastic. If anything, the audience felt that too  much was given for the price of admission, and some would have felt  better had the show ended at 11 or  even earlier, though there was not a  "dry" number in the performance and  the last number was as .much appreciated as the first.  Promptly at 8:30 the curtain rose  on the first part. Immediately it  was apparent that great labor and  careful preparation had been expended in getting ready for the performance. The stage was charmingly  set with bunting and the interweaving of the Union Jack, the Canadian  flag and the Stars and Stripes. Interlacing these colors were innumerable small" colored electric lights,  which added much to the brightness  and beauty' of the stage settings.  Behind the minstrel - singers on the  stage were seated the members of the  Enderby orchestra. The assistance  of the orchestra was most marked  in the choruses and solo accompaniments, and these were rendered with  a swing of merriment that captivated and pleased. .The costuming  of the end men was quite as good- as  one usually, sees in professional minstrel performances, and their local  hits and jokes were clean, clever and  devoid of ^ any sting. - With these  the audience was kept in good humor  throughout the first part, and .even  to the final going down of the curtain, about - midnight, there was a  hearty laugh for. every.bit of fun_put  on.'  - H..'H." Worthington .was' interlo.-  cutor, and performed' this ��������������������������� important  part most admirably.". A".- B. 'Taylor,\  Milt. Stevens and C.~C: ".Fravel handled the" tambos," and ,G. -Jarnac,-,\y.  D. C.,-Christie and F. R.f Prince "the  bones.-      .    -   -    . --       ','."'"-.  Following the    opening chorus,  M.  Stevens sang ."That Mysterious Rag!'  in a manner, that -put everybody in  good humor. -    He   was followed by  Miss    Gteorge   in    "Whistle    and I'll  Wait for .You.", In this popular song  Miss George    sang   at her best, and  the whistling   chorus accompaniment  added a - swing   and    warmness that  brought a compelling encore.   In this  number the   soft,   full strains of the  orchestra.- .were    particularly   appre-  * **  ciated.  Mr.  Christie   next    gave a" "Bones  solo"  that    brought   another hearty  call for more.      It might be said at  this juncture that    Mr.   Christie can  handle these provokers of darkey rag  time   foot    warmers    as   cleverly as  most professionals.  R. R. Gibbs sang ."That Old Girl  of Mine" very well, and J. C. Hogg  rendered . the "Rag Time Soldier  Man." Both of these songs have a  very catchy strain, and the choruses  are   hummers.  Miss George led the quartette in  "Jungle Moon,", and C. C. Fravel  received "a" rousing encore in "I'm the  Guy." Mr. Fravel didn't miss any  of the fetching features of this fun-  provoking song, but tore them of!  just as one would hear from a professional vaudeville star.  ��������������������������� Miss Laing has a soft, mellow contralto voice, and her rendition of  the "Teasing Moon," could not have  been better received.  "Let Me Sing," as rendered by F.  H. Calder, was the fun producer of  the first part. It was put on with  an eye to the humorous side of the  situation and the end men took up  the cue and made the most of it,  keeping the audience in paroxisms .of  laughter throughout.  The closing chorus concluded one of  the richest 'first parts it has ever  been the pleasure of an Enderby audience to hear.  Miss White opened the second part  with a piano solo that brought the  heartiest applause and the most insistent encore of .the evening. Miss  White played with the ease sad feeling of a master of the instrument  and immediately won the favor of  everyone in the audience.  Messrs. Fravel, Taylor, Christie  and Prince came on the stage in jig  time with a continuous story in rag  time verse of local hits. They gave  the audience all they asked tor. It  was one long round of laughter, and  might have been going yet but for  the tiring of the big bass drum.  G. Jarnac's turn in acrobatics was  a surprise to most of the people in  the audience. He has had professional training in this work, and, if  we are to judge from his clever work  here given, he has not lost any of  his cleverness in acrobatics.  T. E. Rodie entertained the audience with card tricks and illusions,  in a manner that caused no little  surprise at his cleverness, and cieating round after round of merriment.  G. Calder, of Vernon, concluded the  vocal selections with "Asleep in the  Deep." Mr. Calder has a very tiue  bass voice and, even at the late hour  of his coming before the footlights,  held the audience closely attentive to  every note sung, and was heartily  applauded.  Mr. Prince and Mr. Milt. Stevens  concluded thV evening's performance  with their side-splitting' spectacular  automobile stunt. It consisted of a  series of   motor    troubles with local  slams" at Enderby auto owners and  drivers. They spared no one in  their fun-making, but . pulled the  sting out of all their jokes before  telling them.  Too much credit cannot be given  to those who participated in the performance. To give such an enter-  ment requires many weeks of training' and not a little sacrifice on the  part-of those participating. To Mrs.  Mann, on the " piano, and all members of the" orchestra from the" leader,  Mr. Lemke, down, a great deal" of  the credit for the flattering success of  the performance is due. There was  that sympathy between orchestra and  singers at. .every "stage "of-the-performance "which, always spells-s-uccess  and  accomplishment".'

The flour mills and lumber mi"'is are  among the best equipped in the interior. As a manufacturing -and  commercial centre it .will in time de-  velope." The river '��������������������������� power; though  not significant, nevertheless exists,  and-wherever water.may be had some  industry will follow. As a centre  for distribution! Enderby ranks high,  having several valleys to feed it, and  a vast territory of lands behind them  that can only be. approached by its  means.  The foreknowledge of its importance has evidently- led it to erect,  several fine buildings aud hotels, and.'  to make of its roadway and sidewalk,  system���������������������������a���������������������������complete^=a,nd=substantia^  work. Laid off as it Is into blocks,  with avenues and streets, it already  assumes the city aspect of the future  1 Promising Fruit Raising District I  It is perhaps" "in"its" fruitgrowing  capacity that Enderby will attract  more attention in the immediate future. Thc advantage of being able  to produce its crops without irrigating them must ever give it a paramount place among the fruit-growing  districts of the West. Its lands, its  rain and snowfall, its equable atmosphere, all contribute to create at  Enderby a centre for fruit culture  nowhere to be surpassed. This may  and must become known before long,  and then will its figures loom beyond  expectancy. But,    although    fruit  farming may be more attractive to  those arriving here and making homes  it has often been found, among such  bottom lands as these, that market  gardening and growing of roots becomes the most profitable of all. In  Australia, roots always take the  place of fruits as the stepping stone  to successful enterprise in farming.  There, when the farmers cannot give  away their grapes and peaches, they  can always ensure good returns from  potatoes and onions. These both  grow strongly in Enderby, and have,  we learn, secured marvellous returns.  It is in the nature of tilings that the  clearing for such root crops must be  costly, but the results and profits  are    correspondingly   high. Grain  growing is well fitted for this rich  alluvial soil, and nere the market  prices and returns are all that can  be wanted.

":i-    '---   .-    Enderby, B.' C. -  jthe ii resent time. I say better, because I believe that one of thV greatest difficulties we have is that we are  sending out of the province annually  $14,000,000 to bring in that which  might very well be produced within  our own borders. You will understand, therefore, what a very serious  work the agriculturist has before  him. -Speaking pra n supporter of  '," Government, I say that the Gov-  '-i-.nment intends to do everything  possible to assist you.  "In regard to co-operation,I would  just call attention' to the fact that  so far as I have been able to see, it  has operated.1 very successfully in ours  and    many    other    districts.   It has I  done much to    put dollars and cents  into the farmers' pockets; it has created a   friendlier    spirit    among the  farmers,  due to    the   closer association which the effective operation of  the idea entails.     In the past it can  not be denied that the. petty bickerings  and  jealousies between  the "farmers, clue   largely, to  - their isolated  condition   and    individual ..effort, .resulted in  pecuniary-loss,  a  loss that  has since    been   transformed    into a  gain by the adoption of the co-operative idea.     It is true, in my opinion,  that if the   farmers   joined together,"  they would rule the world.   It is absolutely true;  but it is likewise true  that it is a very   hard thing indeed  to  get the farmers-to join  together.  "I regard  that,    the breeding of a  spirit of   confidence    among the farmers,  as one    of   the chief works of  co-operation.     Wherever    you have a  co-operative    creamery,    or  wherever  you co-operate in any shape or form",  you not only increase the quantity J storage and" take care of its own eggs  of the produce, but you also raise the ;It can sell eggs in the market iiVsep-  standard   of   quality,    both off which tcmber and October against what are  town, and be glad to take from the  grocer just what he would give me���������������������������  and I am sorry to say, take it out in  trade. To-day I send my products to  the creamery and the grocer has to  pay what we ask, and not what he  chooses to give.  "I am going to give you a few  figures regarding our Cowichan  Creamery. This creamery is purely  co-operative. It started out to make  butter. As far as my connection  with it went, I started in with the  hope that the creamery would start  an egg station. Weliave got a pig-  feeding station; we buy our feed in  carload lots; we have a siding from  the railway. Everything is mixed  up by the association, and the farmer brings in his produce and takes  out his feed. The one offsets the  other, and at the end of the month  he has paid for his feed and is due to  receive the 'balance on his product."  During the year the creamery produced 158,000'^ pounds of butter. It  shipped 82,000 , dozen egg's, and. it  placed' on - the market no less" than  20,000 pounds of-dressed'poultry.'  -  "All these things are paying.-. In  1906, before we started the egg station, I. used to have the, greatest  difficulty in getting rid of eggs, and  when I did I was selling during the  spring of the year at 18c a dozen in  the case. ' In 1907 we started the egg  station, and from that' ,day to this  the lowest price I have received in  the spring of the year for such eggs  was 27������������������c.,.
