'.'"-'���������������������������  Comment and Protest on Local Events  There cannot be any question -as to  the wisdom of the City Council in  deciding that the way to handle the  deficit in connection with the erection  and-completion of the Enderby-school  is by submitting to 'the ratepayers a  by-law to raise the required amount  by a loan. To pay the $1,500 now  past due, out of current revenue,  would not only be contrary to good  business, but it would also be placing  upon the ratepayers a direct tax of  two mills this year that they should  not have to pay. The underlying  principle in all town building is to  do all public improvements on money  raised by a loan on the credit of the  city, extending over a period of ten,  twenty or thirty; years." In this way  the ratepayers of any one particular  period are not made to pay for something that those who-come aftercreap  the benefit of. ' In other words,  the ratepayers coming later, and for  all time during, the life of the loan,  pay their proportion of the cost of  any public improvement for which  money was raised by loan. And, if  the sum of $1,500 were paid out of  current revenue, and the tax rate  increased the necessary two mills to  raise this amount, it would mean  that the school grounds would still  be incomplete. How much better it  is for the city   to'  take up the ques  tion from the broad standpoint of  the public interest, and submit a bylaw to raise, not only enough to pay  off the existing indebtedness, but also  to finish the grounds and make the  school property what it ought to be.-  There'*is( not a finer school building  in the province than that erected in  Enderby. It is one of the biggest  and best assets the City and District  of Enderby possesses, and it seems to  us that it would be the poorest kind  of business to allow the grounds to  remain in, their present condition  when the pittance���������������������������something like  a third of a mill a year on the present assessable property���������������������������would pay oft  all indebtedness and put,the property  in Al sliape. . We have every confidence that the ratepayers of Enderby  will support the City Council in this  move. It would be to our lasting  -discredit to let the good effect of this  fine school building be spoiled by being surrounded by grounds 1:hat are  unfenced and left to grow up in  weeds and wild grass. Under the  hands of a landscape gardener, these  grounds could be.. laid out most  admirably, (as was originally intended by the public spirited Board^  of School Trustees who. took upon  themselves the task which they all  but. carried through). It would then  be up to tne Bchool officials and the  scholars to keep   the   grounds up to  a standard compatible with the imposing building placed at their disposal. That they would do this goes  without question, for then they Would  have something to work for and an  - object to -achieve. - .Ten minutes a  day spent by the teachers with their  classes in a systematic .effort to learn  the mysteries of Nature in the garden, would be more valuable to all  concerned than hours spent learning  of Nature's ways out of a book.  To raise $3,000���������������������������the amount required to pay off the indebtedness  now past due and to complete the  grounds���������������������������would mean the addition of  a third of a mill to the tax rate.  And this additional third of a mill  would not come in on. this year's  levy, but would start next year.' The  amount raised by this third of a mill  levy would be sufficient to pay interest and sinking fund during the  tenure of the loan." The amount  would not be felt by any one; each  property owner, whether he is oi today or comes upon the scene five or  ten years- hence, would then be. paying his proportion of the cost 01 the  improvement and all .would be. getting the benefit of it, for themselves  and their children or children's children. By all means, let us think of  nothing less than the full, amount required to complete the school job,  grounds and all.  EARLY  MORNING  DOINGS  Last Thursday morning- between 12  and 1:30, Provincial Constable Oland  and -City Constable Bailey had. an  interesting5 time bringing'an Indian  and a squaw and a,'baby to the Pro  vincial lock up. Early the previous  evening Constable Oland heard some  whisky sounds coming from the'Indian cabin situated on the_riycr bank  ncross the bridge. On-investigating  he discovered seven Indians in the  .cabin, three under the influence of  liquor and/ four sober. Two of thc  these were women. He attempted to  place the man under' arrest. He resisted and got away by the aid of the  women. Then/after much parleying,  the Constable came " to town for assistance. He had to walk, for the  Indinas hid his horse We have before us pen and ink sketches of what  transpired, as gathered from the evidence taken before Magistrate Barnes.  One of these shows'the Constable  in the mix-up with the Indian and the)  two women holding, him to prevent  him placing the handcuffs on the  prisoner. Another shows Constable  Bailey after the Indian and one of'  the squaws after Constable Bailey,  with a club, and the daughty officer  threatening to' "knock her block off"  if she came any nearer.. With this  "she" skiddooed for cover. The next  picture shows Annie in the bottom  of a democrat with the Constables  driving to the lock-up. The next  day the Indian was fined $10 for being drunk.and resisting arrest, and  the squaws $5 each. v 'J  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, March \ 9] 1914  ENDERBY PRESS  Published every  Thursday at  Endet=by, B.C. at  $2 per year, by thc Walker Press.

MARCH i9, 1914  A  GOOD  START MADE  The balance sheet of the Enderby  Growers' Association.'read before the  shareholders' meeting in K. of P.  Hall last Thursday evening, showed  a loss in the first year's operations  of $105.99. This is not as favorable  as the directors would like to have  had it. No doubt had they been  better acquainted with the way of  handling the business, and had known  two months or more ago when they  started selling flour and feed to mem-  ' hers and the general public at so  little above cost, they would then  have added enough to the price to,  have more than made up the deficit, j  This could very easily have been j  done. But, as was stated by Mr. j  Little, president of the Association, I  had this been done, it would have'  been like taking from one pocket to j  put into the other.     The members of [  -"trre-TsVssoeiat-ion^-^and^-ot-hers^recei-ved-T  the benefit of the cheap flour and leed j  prices, even if it did mean a loss to j  the Association to have made thc j  handling charge so low, and this <  loss will have to be carried over, to  be made up in next year's operations.  No doubt, the directors of the Enderby Growers' Association have discovered -where - they-made-mistakes.  No doubt, they will know better next  year how to    avoid    these mistakes.  It is encouraging that the loss in the  first    season's     operations    was   not!  more than the amount reported.     It i  is a good    start,    to   have made thc ;  initial mile with nothing more serious  to overcome.     With the p<u;t season's  experiences to    guide them, they will  no doubt make a   far better showing  with this season's operations. ,  Thc encouraging part of it is that  our growers have made a start���������������������������a  good start���������������������������in the only successful  way that has been found for market- j  ing fruit and vegetables and other  farm produce���������������������������by co-operation. It is  just possible other mistakes will be  made this year, and next, and next,  but, no matter what the mistakes,  the principle upon which we are now  operating is the right principle���������������������������the  success-ful principle���������������������������that has led the  produce raisers of other districts am  countries out of darkness into light  and mad them prosperous and well-  to-do:- and what it has done for other  districts and countries, it will do for  the produce men and fruit crowers of  the Okannsan���������������������������if they hold together  through thick and thin.  Few men have a better grasp of the  situation  than    Mr. Robertson,  man  ager of the Central Selling Agency���������������������������  the man who, after all, must shoulder the big end of the responsibility  for making the co-operative movement here a success. While Mr. Robertson cannot be blamed .for the  shortcomings of, the various locals,  he must, in a very large measure  find a way out of the many difficulties they get into. In this he has  been very successful the past season.  While acknowledging defects in the  past season's operations, Mr. Robertson was not afraid, nor backward, in  discussing any phase of xhe season's  operations. There was that determination in his voice and manner that  gives confidence and the assurance of  ultimate success when he said that,  no matter what the mistakes, if the  principle upon which they were operating was right and safe and proven  sound, then they could not fail if the  growers would stand together and be  loyal to their own best interests.  THREE THOUSAND CARLOADS  Mr. J. Forsyth Smith, Provincial  Market Commissioner, made the prophecy at a meeting of the Vernon  Growers' Association last week, that  by 1917 or 1918, four years hence, the  apple crop of the Okanagan Valley  will total 3,000' carloads, and that by  that t me a cold storage warehouse  costing in the neighborhood of $200,-  000 will be a necessity fcr Vernon.  Mr. Smith gave a summary of the  duties. oL.thc . Market .Commissioner,  being, in the main, those involved in  the running of a market news agency,  furnishing the growers with a weekly  birdseye view of current prices and  supply conditions in the prairie provinces, fie also explained that considerable statistical work had been  undertaken this year, and that his  annual report would contain inter-  estingTfabiilar   statements  of  Ameri  can apple, peach and prune production, fruit consumption in the prairie  provinces, American fruit returns,  wholesale prices in Calgary, 1910-13,  comparatibe freight and express rates  to prairie'points, comparative grading rules of competitive organizations, etc. He expected, also, to  prepare a bulletin for the information of berry growers and others as  to shipping direct to retailers, giving  a'list of prairie retailers, estimates  of their probable requirements, rates  and other shipping conditions.  Dealing with the berry situation,  Mr Smith stated that there was an  unlimited market on the prairies for  strawberries, 140 carloads' of American berries having been consumed in  1913, in spite of the heavy handicap  of 48c a crate duty. . The ready supply seemed, indeed, almost to have  created the demand, as Edmonton,  for example', which in 1911, handled  no straight carloads of strawberries,  had used 23 in 1913. Calgary's con-  "sumption last year was 30 cars. If  it were possible ' for the Okanagan to  go in for carload production of berries, our growers would have a combined duty and express advantage of  $1 per crate to Alberta .points, over  .competitors.  Under present small production conditions, he would urge growers (1) to  deal direct with the prairie retailer,  (2) keep away from the centres, and  extend distribution beyond Alberta  to Saskatchewan; (3) make sure of  giving goqd weight and well-filled  ballocks; and (4) be rigorous in keeping at home for cannery or local  market purposes all fruit not in the  best condition for shipping. The  commissioner exhibited samples of the  new American berry ballocks, quarts  and pints, which are to contain, respectively, 67 and 33 cu.' in., and announced that the early" strawberry  districts, Kennewick and Hood -River  (May 10 to June 20), and Puyallup,  the principal, raspberry district, will-  ship in a, crate of 24 pints, while-the  later straAvberry districts will ship  in a crate of 16 quarts..  Discussing the apple situation, the  speaker emphasized the fact that 85  per cent of the prairie demand, was  for a good medium-grade apple, at a  moderate price, the prairie farmer being .unwilling to pay extra for the  highest quality and super-excellence.  He crystallized the topic of- the situation in his recommendations that  the grade of our No. 2s be raised so  as to meet the 85 per cent prairie demand for an apple undoubtedly superior to the competing C grade fripm,  the American orchards, while our  high-grade No. Is be used to supply  the city centre demand for this high-  class fruit. He also urged that no  effort be spared to educate the consumer to call for this high-class  fruit, and also to extend our markets  to eastern centres, Montreal, Toronto, etc., and to Europe and Aus-  =tra~lia7 r '"~:~~'  BANK of MONTREAL  Established 1817  Capital, $16,000,000  (paid up)  Rest, $16,000,000  H.

Walker Press  1 I ���������������������������/  Thursday, March 19, 1914  THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Redistribution Bill Giving B. G.  Thirteen Members at Ottawa  The proposed redistribution in. the  Province of B. C. has been prepared  and the map is now before the redistribution committee at Ottawa. The  new map will divide the present con-  stitutency of Kootenay into0East 'and  West Kootenay. East Kootenay will  comprise the Provincial ridings of  Cranbrook, Fernie and Columbia.  West Kootenay will comprise the  ridings of Nelson City; Ymir, Ross-  land City, Slocan, Kaslo and Revelstoke.  The present ' New Westminster riding will also be divided. One will  be called New Westminster, and will  comprise the Provincial constituency  of New Westminster City and Delta,  and all that -portion of the Provincial electoral district of Richmond  lying south of Burrard Inlet, excepting the municipalities'" of Vancouver  City,' South Vancouver and Point  Grey.  The electoral district of New'Westminster district will be composed of  the ridings of Dewdney and "Ohilli-  wack, and all that portion of the  Provincial^ electoral district' of Yale  adjoining - the Provincial electoral  districts'of Chilliwack and Dewrdney,  bounded by a line commencing at the  southeast corner of the Provincial-  electoral district of Chilliwack 'and  thence along the international boundary of the' Provincial electoral district of Similkameen, thence norther  divided into two" seats, though they  are not yet named. One will consist of the local ridings of Cariboo,  Lillooet, Kamloops and Yale, excepting that portion of Yale contained in  the electoral district of New Westminster District as the same is above  described, and including the whole  City and district municipality of  Salmon Arm.  The other will consist of the electoral district oi Okanagan, excepting  any portion of the city or district of  Salmon Arm which may be contained  therein, and the Provincial electoral  districts of Similkameen, Greenwood  and "Grand Forks.    %  The thirteenth seat has not yet  been named,-but"it'will consist of the  ridings of Alberni, Comox and all  that portion of the Provincial electoral riding of Richmond south of  the mouth of the east branch of the  'Squamish river at the head of Howe  .Sound, thence in a -southerly direction along the easterly shore of Howe  Sound to Burrard-Inlet.  Mr. Ingram defended the packers  against the charge , of responsibility  for the high cost of living. Western  Canada stood at the top of the list  as a meat-eating country, and against;  this stood th-'e fact that Western Canada daily faced an increasing population without increasing the supply of  1 ii  live    stock.       This    prediction    was  'equally tme of the United States.  Mr. Ingram condemned the indiscriminate slaughter oi calves. " A  half million had been killed during  the past year, averaging a dressed  weight of sixty pounds. If these  calves had been allowed to live 18  months or two years, and had been  fed, they would have yielded at least  COO .pounds of beef'apiece, a sufficient  quantity 'to have fed every man,  woman and child in Winnipeg for six  years.  INCREASED TO 11 POUNDS  I   The    Postmaster-General    has     announced that it   has been decided to  extend the   weiglit   limit   on parcels  post from  6 to 11    pounds, starting  'at once.     The original intention was  to allow three   months to elapse be-  ifore the   weight   of   parcels   was increased to 11 pounds      However, the  'system is already working so smoothly and   so   satisfactory    that it has  been decided that   the department is  well prepared   to   cope    with the in-  ' creased business which is sure to follow the^extension of the weight.

It's future growth  and prosperity depends on  these peo-  Why should a man bring his family  to Enderby ? Because Enderby offers  liim opportunities to p rovide for  then?���������������������������whether in a business way or  farming. Enderby offers his family  educational, social and pleasure attractions. It is very pleasant to live  "TfTTEriilcrbyT  This scries  of articles,   "Sinning Against Your Home Town," will deal  with the subject in a big way���������������������������they will be written concisely and straight  .from..the., shoulder to make it clear to everyone.     The points brought out  When this man brings his family  here, he has in mind making it his  home 'for good. He is going to  spend all efforts .to-.-build up that  home. Me is inverting his labor to  provide for his family. A city built  by men like this will always grow  and prosper. "  The more, attractive he makes his  horrre, the more valuable it becomes.  Tn ten years, his'original investment  will double and triple, if Enderby, as  a whole, keeps pace with him.  The merchant coming to Enderby to  go into business, sees at a glanca  that it is a hustling and bustling  city. Its people work and are always improving. This makes him  think���������������������������gives him confidence-���������������������������he sees  his way of investing in a stock of  goods and opens up to servo the people with the necessities or luxuries of  life. He secures the best goods  made. He wants to give thc people  of Enderby the best possible at' a  reasonable cost to them and a reasonable profit to himself. Thereby,  one more store is added to the business end of Enderby. And so it  keeps going,    more   and more people  will be facts as found by over 500 of the leading   merchants and business  men in the West and Northwest.     The message they will bring will be of  personal interest to every man, woman and child in Enderby.     They will  show what will happen if we all continue to "Sin against our hometown.'  locating in    Enderby    and   more and  : more     business    concerns     investing  j money in   goods   and in the present  ! and future prosperity of Enderby.  !    And so we   have   a city going for-  ! ward  of    its    own   volition���������������������������building  j itself    up���������������������������getting    more   prosperous!  I and offering    more    opportunities to  ; outsiders.      This    is    what    happens  | when  we    are    "helping  forward  our  ! home town."     The local businessman  | is    patronized���������������������������he    takes your dollar  ! and puts it in an Enderby bank,    He  ! pays his rent with it to a local landlord���������������������������uses  it in    buying his personal  necessities    and    those of his family,  part of it goes for local amusements,  And so the dollar   stays; in Enderby,  and accomplishes a great deal toward  | or invests it in   a lot for his home,  the building    of    Enderby.     One can  easily see by    that    dollar going out  of    Enderby,    a    good   many things  would     NOT     happen���������������������������the    landlord  might    NOT    get   all    his rent���������������������������last  year's suit would have to do for this  year���������������������������the new   addition to  the homo  would have to go, etc.      All because  that    dollar   went    out    of   Enderby  when it might have stayed at home.  WEBSTER DEFINES SINNING AS  "VIOLATING DUTY"  It is the duty of every man, woman  and child in Enderby to help build  up thc city���������������������������to make it prosperous  and make it grow���������������������������to encourage outsiders to come in. When you send  east, or north or south or west to  "replenish your wardrobe"���������������������������to purchase "new furniture for your home"  ���������������������������when you send your money to mailorder houses���������������������������do you realize that you  are "sinning against your home  town"���������������������������that you are "violating your  duty" to Enderby? Well,, you are.  You are laughing at your local merchants���������������������������prolonging the needed municipal improvements���������������������������decreasing the  value of your own property as well  as that of your neighbor���������������������������-discouraging the most-worthy efforts to cater  to your every wish���������������������������fooling yourself  by sending that dollar out of Enderby. It is natural for every person  living in Enderby to desire to purchase the best of all that makes life  worth living. From a- personal  standpoint���������������������������clothing, hats, underwear, food, confectionery and the innumerable  pleasures    and recreations  so necessary   to- balance one's existence. ,  Or, from your home standpoint,  timber, stone and- cement to build  ^vour^home^=\\dth^plumbing,_flooring,  moulding, etc., to finish it off properly���������������������������furniture, appliances, furnishings to make living comfortable.  No one gainsays you this privilege  ���������������������������but would it not be better for you  to buy these things in Enderby if you  can supply your wants just as well  and at the same price ? By doing  this���������������������������by -keeping- -that ���������������������������dollar in~En;_  derby you encourage the development  of the city of Enderby���������������������������your home  town.  By this action of ' yours in recognizing merit���������������������������you warrant the entrance of new industries, the expenditure of huge sums to start them.  Such improvements attract attention  to this city of yours���������������������������it attracts investments in its possibilities and its  future probabilities. You are hurrying forward the time when Enderby  will come into its own���������������������������when its advantages will be recognized. By  keeping this dollar at home you are  helping yourself���������������������������the coming generation and the future recognition of  Enderby. We believe it is youn fluty  to give this subject serious consideration. We ourselves believe it is so  serious that we commend to your patient consideration the articles of  this series, which will contain the  experiences, ideas and suggestions of  over 500 merchants and businessmen  of the Northwest, as to what they  think the result will be when we are  no longer "Sinning Against Our  Home Town."  >J   I,  tWBmWBBSESSEImW/m^mWBXi  A  ���������������������������i\ of?

"We should ship curt carloads "bf  beef, eggs, butter and pigs, instead  of importing these .commodities,"  declared Mr. Robertson, during a discussion of' the marketing situation in  general,"'and. the hay market in particular, as affecting Enderby district  this''year. It -is as bad a practice  to grow all hay as it is to grow -all  wheat, or all peaches, said Mr.v Robertson, for the man who does this'is  sure to be caught 'at one time or  another with his crop on his hands  and the market glutted* '\  Mr. Robertson pointed oufthat a  solid basis of prosperity would never  be attained by 'too- great specialization, that no district should devote  itself entirely to apples," or entirely-  to peaches, or entirely to hay.     ' ��������������������������� -  In calling the meeting to order, Mr.  Little, president    of the Association,  expressed regret   at/seeing so few. of  the shareholders* present, though the  membership "now    numbered     thirty-  eight.

It was urged "that, while the balance sheet did .not show conditions  as favorable as might ' have been  hoped for, still thc showing was as  good as could be reasonably expected,  ���������������������������in view of thc fact tnat' the crop  was actually moving last year be-  lore the organization had been completed.  Mr. -Robertson,---being called upon  to address the meeting, congratulated  the Association on having come  through with so little a-deficit, in  view of the difficulties encountered  during the first year of operation.  Mr. Robertson then urged upon the  growers the production' or quality  rather than quantity as one of the  certain ways to success.  "Some "people" claim that-the cooperative movement does away -with  the individuality of - men and > districts,", he "said, "and in a measure  thac is true.. ��������������������������� But it is also _ true  that the "man .who grows a No. 1 ap-  pie gets a No. 1 price, and'if any  man can grow anything which is of  such a faucy quality that it "^ can  command an 'extra priced we shall  gladly give that'"grower' ;a,- pool by  himself, arid-'-individual returns^ on his  product/ , We do- take "care of the  man who ���������������������������_ is \ capable of producing  goods of high" quality'/' '���������������������������" l'"*\'''��������������������������� -\  During a discussion of' tbe\.pres3nt  situation of' "��������������������������� the "'" hay" market,'''' Mr.  Pvobertson ' denied^., emphatically-- the  reports' that' seine- "Alberta'hay. had  been- shipped- intbxthe- Okiahagah-and;  sold* at'  Valley  ;"'a  He" advised  loweririg'7'6r the -".pricet of  \  /  The greatest gift to your family and  yourself is an  Edison Phonograph  Disc or Cylinder  It's the greatest musical enjoyment-bearer that has ever  been made.

C  $1,714.17  Loss in    operations  $   105.99  In explaining the reason for thc  loss ia thc season's operations^ Mr.  Little said: "The whole difficulty  here has been that the hay crop has  not moved out as expected. Had we  foreseen the present slack market for  hay we could have avoided the small  deficit now showing by making a  slightly larger charge - on feed and  flour supplied to our members. As  a.matter of fact we have handled  about $4,000 worth of supplies with  only a nominal profit. Had we made  a larger charge' we could now have a  surplus for a dividend to distribute  among supply purchasers, biit the  money would have come from their  podkets, and the only difference would  have"'been a better book showing."  . The balance sheet was adopted as  read, following which a motion was  passed- increasing the number of  directors to six, and .naming Mr.  Little as the sixth. Last year,  though president of the Association  and the Enderby representative on  the board of directors of the Central,  Mr. Little was not a director of the  Enderby local association.  The   board   of   directors, with Mr.  duce has been disposed of. Pay-  mencs will be made at the average  market price for the grade delivered.  "I fail to see the basis for the objections to the contracts. 1 The Central will in every case give liberal  consideration to thc request of any  member who, for any valid reason,  wishes to be released, in whole or in  party from" "bis "contract."" For "instance, if a hay grower wishes to be  released from his contract in order  to feed .his hay to his own stock, thc  Central will be delighted. On only  one point do we insist, and that Is  that members   must   not   try to sell  [Continual on lni-t pniru]  JACOB GOULD  6CHURWIAN "  "-'    .7,  Xhe President of Corne!l/University (  1 List it with me.

Walker Press THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, March \ 9, 1914  Annual Meeting of Enderby  Growers' Association Held  Continued from fifth pafre    fties, and our   results, there is a clifl-  ercnt spirit   prevalent in the Valley,  crops   in competition .^nd-a   reasonable   spirit of support,  from Salmon   Arm    on the north to  Penticton on thc south.  "Pooling, as I understand it, is  simply a system whereby the different  districts help to bear each other's  burdens. A No, 1 apple, whether  grown at Enderby or Penticton, if  put on the market at a certain time  brings a No. 1 price."  Mr. Reekie then cited the case of a  dealer-' from Alberta who had told  him that in 1913 for thc first time  the grade and pack oi Okanagan fruit  had equalled and even excelled that  of the fruit shipped by American' competitors.  Mr. Robertson here rose to answer  a question as to what was considered  part of   their  with us in our own market."  Mr. Reekie then addressed the  meeting and spoke rcmeniscently of  his experiences years ago on the Manitoba prairies, when wheat was selling at 37 cents a bushel. "The  grain growers lived through those  times,'-' he said, "and many of them  are now comfortably rich. We, in  the Okanagan, will live through our  times of trial as well, and succeed  as they have succeeded.

The directors, he said,  had decided to adopt a system whereby vegetables and hay may be standardized. "Certain districts raise  onions which bring a higher price  than onions grown in other districts,'  said he, "and in future these onions  will be graded No. 1, and will bring  to the growers thc higher price at  which they sell, Timothy can also  bo similarly graded and handled, as  can every other form 01 produce."  Mr. Robertson then outlined thc  system being worked out this year,  whereby the Central is saving money  for the growers by thc purchase of  seed supplies'.  Mr. Fowler, vice-president of the  Armstrong local, pointed out that  only by co-operation could the growers help themselves and help others.  "Do not condemn thc co-operative  movement because mistakes have been  made by individuals or directing  boards," he argued. '"Though last  season in some . cases growers who  ���������������������������were not in the co-operative associations may have "been paid more for  their produce than members received,  the members 01 the locals certainly  received- better prices than they would  have obtained under the old system,  when each man was competing directly with all , his neighbors and with  every other grower in the Valley."  Mr. Robertson was asked by H. E.  Waby as to the possibility of the  Central handling the sale of wool, of  which the tonnage is increasing rapidly. He expressed entire \villingJ  ness to undertake the sale of wool as  soon as it is being produced in commercial quantities and can be sent,  out in carload lots.  Mr. Robertson then read a comparative statement showing the, per  centage of No. 1 and No. 2 iruits  shipped by the various locals, in all  of which the Enderby local compared  favorably with the highest. In crab  apples Enderby led all points, the  per centage of No. Is from this point  being 97. At all the southern Valley  shipping points, .the growers suffered  several severe hail. storms, which  badly marked the fruit. ���������������������������  , The total shipments made by the  Enderby ' Growers' Association for the  year were: 1400 ' boxes of apples, 61j"  tons of potatoes, -and 64 tons of hay.
