OUR BOYS DID IT
Taken from posters put up
for the game in Vernon last Friday: "Armstrong has beaten us
once; can they do it again?"
Yes, we did it. Hie Armstrong hockey team made a trip
to Vernon last Friday and after
ao three., hour- trip over rough
roads they stepped oh the ice
and beat the southern boys to
the tune of 6-4 in a good clean
game.
The Vernon boys put up some
good individual play but thcy
could not keep time with the
superior combination and
strong defence of the red sweaters who apparently won the favor of the. audience judging from
the shouts: "Come on,: Reds,"
wliich" came from the grand
stand.   " ' -:.���������:���������
Owing, to .the -bad .roads the
game wras unavoidably delayed
by the Armstrong boys who
could not*get ready for action

COMING INTO ITS OWN
Okanagan Valley Finally Shows
Where It Stands in the Matter
of Co-operation in the Marketing of Its Produce.
At the annual meeting of the
Enderby Growers' Association,
held' in the office of the association Tuesday afternoon, Mr.
C. W. Little, for the Central
Selling organization, prcsenteo
figures that showed the rosiest
outlook for Okanagan growers
that has yet been experienced. It
was apparent from these figures
tliat thc years of organization
which have been spent, and the
faithful work of the Central
officers���������often under the most
trying circumstances���������has n*ot
been in vain and is now bearing
fruit. .These figures show,, top,
that out of the chaos of selling
organizations which have operated in the Valley, there issat
last emerging one strong, efficient organization���������and that a
co-operative organization, of
the growers themselves.
Mr. Little told the meeting
that in 1918 Okanagan growers
shipped through Central a total
of 941,206 packages of fruit and
vegetables, against a total of
777,842 in 1917, an increase of
163,364 packages. The total
value of the fruit and vegetables
shipped was $1,587,864,36, or
an increase over 1917 of $470,-
115.41, and over 1916 of $524,-
763.08. TJhe total expense of
selling the season's shipments,
amounted to $53,737; -againstfa,
selling cost of-^63,140 in 1916
and $52,562 in 1917, showing a
decrease of nearly $10,000 in
selling costs over 1916, though
the sales amounted to $524,763
more than in 1916. Last year
Central's selling costs were $1,-
175 more than in 49J7 hut tlie
sales.exceeded those of 1917 hy
$470,115, which works out at
7-10 of a cent per package for
the increased1 tonnage,
which works out at 7-1Q of a
cent per package for" the increased, tonnage. ,_ ,
The average prices received
for No. I, O.K. brand apples
was $1.97 per hox, as compared
to $1.38 for 1917; apples, all
varieties, was $1,95 per hox, as
compared to $1.36 for 1917.
Mr. Little took occasion to
impress upon growers the necessity of holding fast to the organization. He pointed to the
fact tliat the past year or two
had, been-abnormal; .^inasmuch.
as buyers went to the door of
the growers to get the requirements of the market. Rut these
conditions will hardly obtain,
and thc man who endeavors to
sell his crop independent of thc
strong selling organization may
find himself seeking unwilling
buyers to take his stuff off his
hands at the lowest market
price.
It is estimated that 65 per
cent of the total fruit output of
the Okanagan is sold through
thc Central organization. Five
distributing selling houses have
been established by Central���������
one at Vancouver, one at Calgary, one at Edmonton, one at
Regina and one at'Winnipeg. .It
is one of the strongest selling
organizations"jin*" the Northwest,
and growing stronger each season. J,
Mr. P. P. Woodbridge, who
was one of the original organizers of the United Grain Growers of j the Northwest, appeared
before, the meeting and gave an
interesting account of the ups
and downs of that organization
in the forming period. Hc sold
the   now   mighty   organization
'was seriously handicapped at
the start. The organizers had
to work out a system for them-
1 selves. Mistakes were made,
but instead of giving up the or--
ganization and starting anew,
they worked the harder to overcome tlie effects of j the mistakes
made and through the mistakes
learned, how.   <
The experience of that organization should be an incentive
to members of this organiza
tion, for what thc grain growers
accomplished is possible for the
fruit and produce growers of
thc Okanagan. Mr. Wood-
bridge told of thc accomplishments of tlie Grain Growers organization, what it has done
and is doing for its members,
and in general what it has done
for the farming industry of the
Dominion.
The status of farmers* and of
farming has entirely changed*in
recent years, he said. Rapid
transportation, mobilization of
operation and of shipments, the
handling of crops on a large
scale, all made it more impossible fori one farmer to be independent of the other. Today all
industries have found it necessary to combine their forces and
organize on a large scale. ,Tlic
farmer is the last to learn the
lesson, but he has learned, and
hc is now putting into practice
the knowledge he has gained ih
thc experience of tlie last few
5*ears.
Speaking, of what he had
learned since coming to the
Okanagan, he. said, it -was apparent on all sides that closer
co-operation was.needed on the
part of the growers; that the
Selling' organization. had placed
the fruit ..industry on its feet,'
and! all that is how. necessary is
for/ the growers, to take every
advantage of the opportunity
presented.
The annual report of the lo-
cfil association, showed a net
profit of $138.33 on the season's
operations. Expenses of opera-
,tidn amounted to $1,808.78. In
the sale of $738 worth of fruit
and vegetahles, a profit of $12
was realized; in the sale of $344
worth of hox material a profit
of $85 was carried forward; in
tlie sale of ffour and feed to the
amount of $16,914 a profit of
$1,278 was realized; and in the
sale of $7,950 worth of hay and
wheat there was a profit of $219
A letter was read from Iff. A.
Hankey & Co., Vernon, offering
the building now occupied by
the^association^forHhe^sum^of-
$8,200. The price was considered to be too'high, and the
offer declined.

Annual Meeting of Creamery
Association Proves Interesting
and All Optimistic Over Season's Outlook.
There--was; a full attendance
of members at the annual riieet-
ing 'of the Northern Okanagan
Creamery"-"Association at Armstrong last Thursday,,and, after
the business of the past season
had been discussed, it was decided that the outlook for thc
new year was excellent and the
decision of the meeting was
unanimous in favor of continuing stronger than ever. The
fact that the books showed a
loss in the season's operations
was not taken seriously for the
fact that,- while the loss may
have been sustained in operation, the patrons of the creamery received the benefit in their
cream checks. */ ���������

Editor The Commoner:
Dear Sir���������I- ask you kindly
foil a little space in reference to
your report in last week's" Commoner, which failed to a certain
extent in correctly staling my
position. The heading represents
me as.^unqualifiedly favoring reduction, iii" the size of Indian re-
serves. > JI was instructed to proceed Jo Enderby to ascertain the
view&jbf JtiieACity', Council/arid
citizens in reference tbr a proposal niade by them to tlie Soldier
Settlement Board, which proposal was turned over to r tlie Indian Department. . After learning the views.of the meeting and
obtaining confirmation of data,,
which f. already had, 1 made reference to the .fact that their prcn
posal was pertty much.along the
lines that I had already discussed with certain hands of Indians wlipse,per,capita holding
was unusually, large .with hut a
limited amount of Jt under cultivation. Your report, had .it
that it was to the Pepartment of
Indian AfTaiis 1 had advocated
reducing size. This, if put into
the hands of.unscrupulous parties who would make use of it
to   misrepresent   my   position,
was calculated to do harm.   As ���������        ... _, -.   ���������������������������-..-   ��������� --

a matter of fact it was with the; ^. y. Beat���������
cattle and that requires large
acreage. It was $1,000 which
Frank Michel, the Bridge River
Indian, put into Victory Bonds V
in 1917; but his holding is much
larger than the average Lytton
Indian's holding.
I also expressed a doubt as to
whether there^was enough, cultivable land in the Salmon River
Reserve   to   accommodate   the
whole    of    the    Spallumcheen
Band, and I still think it would
be  inadequate  unless   thc  Sal- -
mon River Reserve is enlarged
considerably by the'purchase of
adjoining cultivable lands from
the whites.    I do not entertain
the too common idea that the
Indian is the only sinner in the
matter of leaving good land unfilled, and I sec areas of un tilled
cultivable   land   held   by   tlie
whites that will aggregate more
than the unfilled portions on the
reserves.   Many of the reserves
look big on paper, but the cultivable portions are not so great
after all. Also in many Agencies
throughout the Province the Indians have not enough land for
their needs.   Thus it is those Indians who hold larger areas than
theyneed, and will not work the
land properly, who are injuring
their fellow tribesmen by giving .
occasion for this outcry about
taking over Indian lands. I have"
seen this all along, and that is
why  I  have  discussed  it  with   '
these Indians  thmselves, but. 1

It is true I drew attention of
thc meeting to the fact that Lytton Indians wilh a per capita allotment of less than 25 acres,
much of which was only third
class land, were making better
progress than in several bands
of thc Okanagan Agency where
the per capita allotment was
more than six times that; but I
didn't say it was because thc
Lyttons had less land, that this
was so. I merely stated a fact
but. assigned no reason. There
might be half a dozen reasons
to account for it.
Again, there were other inaccuracies which '-might. cause
those who knew better, to think
I had been drawing a long bow.
It was not 14 cents but 11* cents

MADE IN  ARMSTRONG  Ladies' Suits  Men's Suits  Clothes Cleaned, Pressed  Altered and Repaired  President Strachan of the Co-operative Wool  Growers' Association at Kamloops writes Mr. A.  W. Hunter of Armstrong, the following explanation of the troubles the association had to encounter in 1918, which will settle a great deal of unrest  on the part of wool growers in this district:  "As requested I will give you a brief history of  the Wool Growers' Association of Interior British  Columbia.  "Early in the war the Canadian Government  realized tlie importance of stimulating the wool  production ih Canada and in accordance with this  idea Mr. Rcg. Arkell was sent west two years ago  to organize thc Wool Growers' Association, and  give them educational talks on thc better handling and marketing of wool. As a result of his  visit at Kamloops, the Interior of British Columbia Wool Growers' Association was formed and  in lhe first year handled almost 10,000 pounds of  wool. ������������������  "When wc had thc wool in our warehouse and  graded by the Government inspector we thought  il would be an easy mailer to dispose of our clip.  We wrote to a great many local buyers in British  Columbia and also to a great many leading manufacturers in lhe East, asking for bids on. our  wool, but none were forthcoming. We could not  get sale for it at any price. Wc felt sure this was  an organized attempt on the part of dealers and  manufacturers to crush thc young association. So  our secretary went to Calgary on the date that  thc Alberta men were selling their wool by auction, in the hope that he could interest thc buyers  of that sale in our wool. He succeeded in selling  our wool���������������������������1917 clip���������������������������at the ungraded price of  61% cents. cThis was very much better than the  prices obtained by any of the farmers who sold  individually as they realized only, from 35 to 48  cents a pound. Wc were so pleased with our ultimate success that we felt the association was es-  tablshcd and that it would bc easy sailing from  that on.  "So early last spring we did everything iri bur  powcr to encourage the outside farmers to join us  in lhc venture, and as a result of our efforts aboul  120 farmers sold their wool through our association. Four carloads were shipped from Kamloops  district. In .the meantime, a co-operative selling  agency���������������������������the Canadian Co-operative Wool Growers, Ltd.���������������������������was formed under the patronage of the  Federal Government.    The primal and chief ob-  by our early shippers instead of tlie offer made  by tlie local dealers.  "The more I consider the wool situation the  more I am convinced that there was an organized  attempt to strangle the Co-operative Association  of Wool Grcwrs in its infancy. And with that  conclusion in -mind, I am more thoroughly convinced of the vital importance of the wool growers sticking together and fighting for their rights  to the bitter end. It is the only solution to the  market problems of wool., Enormous profits  have been wrung friom the wool growers in recent  years, simply because there were no market facilities or regulations.   He had to take what he was  o Ci  oft ered or keep his * wool. ..y    o   V  "In conclusion I might say that the Toronto  office has offered to j>ay some of our local,expenses . Thc further distribution of part of thc  5 per cent withheld will take place at as early a  date as possible."  THRIFT STAMPS IN SCHOOLS  How to place thc Thrift Stamps in thc schools  so that they may be readily available when the  pupils bring their 25 cents of accumulated savings  has been solved by thc Vancouver board of school  trustees. The National War Savings Committee"  British Columbia Division, of which Mr. Campbell Sweeny is chairman, while thanking the Vancouver board for its decision to finance the movement, trusts that its action will be followed by  olher boards throughout the Province.  The secretary of the Vancouver board of school  trustees will obtain from the principals of the  respctivc schools an estimate of the number of  Thrift Stamps required. He will then purchase  from thc hank or postoflicc the total amount requisitioned, and the principal of each school will  bc credited wilh the sum asked for. The principal will then credit each class-teacher with thc  number required, and in that way, when the  scholar has saved a quarter, ils exchange for a  Thrill Stamp will bc accomplished on thc spot.  Thus, from, thc thrifty pupil desirous of purchasing a Thrift Stamp there is a continuous  chain linking him with the national savings movement in which hc directly participates, through  the school principal and the class-teacher. Thc  .difficulty lo bc surmounted in the case of lhc  schools was that there should bc no interval bc-  ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������. ������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������ 4  mx.

At a meeting of executive, we decided  lo ship the wool to them as we felt that the organization was a step; in the right direction and required tlie co-operation of every wool grower in  Canada.  "Then  it was  that  our  trouble  began.    For  months after it was shipped? .we could get no word  of it.   I, as president of the association, had instructed our secretary to send out letters at frequent intervals to our patrons, keeping them in  touch with the wool situation.   But I am sorry to  relate wc could get no information from the association.   Upon complaint to them we were told  that  thcy were so short of stenographers and  other help that they could not give us the information we required.    Our executive were as  much in the dark as any of our patrons. This was  very annoying to everybody, and not calculated to  cultivate a spirit of satisfacton among the wool  growers.   However, we must remember that this  young Co-operative Company had enormous difficulties to overcome on account of war condilions,  and regulations.   To add lo their discomfort, the  Manufacturers Association, recognizing the mcn-|  acc^lhcsc^wool^gi'oNveiV^asiSOciff  lo lhcir profiteering, sent a deputation to wait on  the Brilish government making representations to  it lhal thc Canadian clip was not nearly adequate  to their needs, and that they could not fulfill their  war  contracts  unless  morc wool  was  available  from an outside source.    This took place aboul  three   months   before   thc   central   agency was  formed.    Tho  manufacturers  succeeded  in  persuading   the  British   government  lo  allot  them  shipping space   to import  15,000,0001b  of wool  from Australia.    This wool thcy were to receive  ut the price of 35 cents a pound.   But owing to the  submarine   menace   and   difficulty   in   obtaining  shipping, the Australian wool did not arrive until  late in   the season  of 1918.    Those associations  who had  their wool clipped early and delivered  in Toronto, received as high as 74 cents a pound.  J^ul as soon as the Australian clip was placed on  lhc market the price fell accordingly and we were  Ihe victims, on account of being so far from thc  real market and the delay caused by .transportation lo thai market.    You .can readily see from  ���������������������������this, that the reason wc did not get Uie highest  price was due to the fact that'we sold on a falling  markcl caused hy thc importation of 15,000,000  pounds of Australian wool.  "Now while wc all feel annoyed that we did not  receive a belter price, wc have no more reason  to blame the local association for not getting as  high a price as was offered by somc of the local  Women Po the Shopping  The hand that rocks the cradle not only rocks  the world jbut handles the "rocks."

These are the legumes or Legumin  ^ which include clover and vetches, beans ami  Z\ BoUcally they are remarkab e ior to  A nitrogen-welding qualities, as being .con-  fantly associated with bacteria in the soil.  ThcL bacteria-minute living organisms only  Lible under high microscopic power���������������������������form col-  foes living on the smaller rootlets of the legumes,  Seducing thereon small lumps or nodules vary-  L in size from a pin-head to a small pea. Each  fad of "crop, whether clover, alfalfa, pea, etc., is  K by its own particular kind of bacterial culture-  I When these bacteria are present in the son,  Lperience shows that growth is more vigorous,  Ld earlier development takes place. These fac-  Ibrs are important in Canada. With alfalfa, robust and early stands have a better chance of relisting winter-killing; and in the case of field peas  leports from Uie Western Provinces show in-  freased yields per acre from the use ot nitro-  Lultures. .    ,  Wherc a crop has once been successfully raised  ivith nodules on the roots, the bacteria survive  In the soil for some time, and a subsequent crop  Is more easily obtained. To give a crop the best  Ehancc of succeeding, the appropriate strain  Ihould be introduced into the ground.  This can be done by transferring soil from  iround-where" that crop has succeeded and scattering it broadcast over  the new  field.    Tliis  fncthod is laborious and expensive, and besides  >f ten introduces undesirable weeds and the germs  jf diseases.   Equally good results have been obtained by  using pure bacterial  cultures.    The  tnethod of procedure is to mix the culture material on wliich millions, of bacteria, with some  iome fluid generally skim milk.   Then empty the  Reed onto a clean floor or cloth and treat it with  [the fluid, thoroughly stirring tlie seeds, so that a  film of moisture with its bacteria may stick to  leach seed.   Tlie seeds are then spread out to dry,  [W of direct sunlight, which would kill the bacteria.   When dry and on the same day as treated,  [the seed should be sown and covered up.    A  [cloudy day is tlie best for this purpose.  J    Cultures may be obtained commercially from  I seedsmen, or agricultural  colleges,, at charges  1 ranging from twenty-five cents upward.

The information  at your disposal made your editorial on the subject a perhaps natural enough first thought. But  there was certain ohter information before the  Board which makes psssible a second thought,  and which it might be well for your readers who  do not attend the Board of Trade to be conversant with. o  You1 suggest in your editorial that it would be  equally justifiable for the Board to ask for similar  statements from the merchants doing business  in the city. Perhaps before our old friend H. C.  O. L. is settled we may even come to that. But  meantime the case we arc dealing with is that of  a business wliich is classed as a public utility, and  as such the public have a right to know something about its affairs.  That such a right exists is.clear from the fact  that the Railway Board of Canada, less than three  months ago, granted the application of the municipal corporations of the cities of Montreal, Toronto, and Hamilton and the Union of Canadian  Municipalities, for an order directing delivery  by the Bell Telephone Company of evidence in  support of the company for an increase in rates.  In the opinion of the JRailway Board the request  was a reasonable one and the company is to make  a return covering its operations from 1913 to  1917. The information ordered to be supplied  is exhaustive and must show the estimated increase in revenue as a result of the war tariff.  Tlie committee appointed by the Board* of  Trade to consider the local situation, in recommending that such information be asked for, had  this precedent before it and so presented the matter to the Board.  ...  The fact that the Okanagan Telephone Company declared a dividend at the rate of 5 per cent  for the first half of 1918; that the announcement  of this dividend appeared at the same time as that  of the increase.in-rates; and that so far-as-,the  committee knows,. no announcement has .been  iriddejDf the;cKviderid for the second half of .1918  leads to the suspicion that this corporation has  joined the profiteer, class: If on the contrary the  company has a good case there should be no hesitancy about supplying the information asked  for.  The attitude of the Board is not a hostile one.  It js but seeking to know what is both its right  and its 4nty to know.  Cordially yours, W. Stott.

(i)   Employment Offices.  So that everyone���������������������������male or  female, soldier or civilian���������������������������can  get quickly such jobs as are  available the Government is cooperating with the Provinces in  establishing a chain of Public  Employment Offices. Employers are being urged to make use  of these offices to secure any  help they need. Farmers, for  example, who need hired men.  should apply to the nearest  office. There will be a Public  Employment Office in every  town of 10,000 people���������������������������and  wherever the need for one exists.  There will be 60 different offices  in all���������������������������one-half are already in  operation.  (2)   Employment Opportunities.

(3) Land and Loans for Soldiers  To help soldiers become farmers the Government has developed a programme that  includes the providing of land,  the granting of loans, and the  training and. supervision of  those inexperienced in farming.  At present, the soldier js granted, free, in addition to his or-,,  dinary homestead right, one  quarter-gection of Dominion,  lands. He also ^receives, a loan  up tb the maximum of $2,500.  These original plans are now  being broadened.

The Dominion law against tlie selling of  butter without tlie words "Dairy Butter" or  "Creamerv Putter"���������������������������as thc case may bc��������������������������� printed  on the butler "wrap, is a blessing in disguise to the  average farmer.  It ������������������s the duty of every hutter maker to comply with the law in this mailer. Some butler  makers have only a cow or two, and make so little  butter that it does not appear to them tliat they  can afford to have their butter wraps printed.  They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of buttermakers, we bav< printed up  a quantity of "Custom" gutter Wraps.

The report  shows tliat the Association sold for the farmer  $738.60 worth of fruit and vegetables at a net  profit of $12.66. The Association handled $16,-  914.38 in flour and feed, and $7,950.23 worth of  wheat and hay at a profit of say $1,500. It will  thus he seen that the Association was able to  cany on only by what was made out of the sales  io the farmer, instead of sides for the farmer.  Understand us, tliis is not the fault of thc organization.   It must be thc fault of thc farmers  who are making use of the Association. Probably  ihe sales of flour and feed represent tlie big end  of thc sales to the farmer.   The sales of fruit and  vegetables,, and hay  and  wheat,  represent  the  sales of  the  organization  for  the  farmer*.    It  would be absurd to say that a farming community buying $17,000 worth of flour and feed through  their local organization produces less than half  that amount of marketable produce.  It must be that the organization is being made  use of by only a few and that the great bulk of  thc produce raised even by those who patronize  il when- buying flour and feed do not use it as  thcy should for thc disposal of their produce.  The association is co-operative. Every mem-  l)er knows to what extent hc himself is working  Irue lo the co-operative spirit.  WHAT IS PROFITEERING?  fukliomls..;������������������������������������������������������._��������������������������� E nr       t"        ���������������������������  2-ady to condemn the other fellow; ������������������? ^l   -yj^., '  because if. happens to affect us.      ''^^  It seems to us much of this outcry against  profiteering and Bolshevism  is  much like  thc  cliild on the ocean .beach ..trying to 1Js\yeep the  waves hiiek  *VJ!,h a bropm., What is. profiteering ?   Is it anytfring m&Pg.than, "getting the price"  demanded by eonMtiqm?  & All of us are rie  r   for profiteering because it hapf  But it has probably been noticed that anybody  having anything for sale is getting the highest  price possible for. his commodity.    The laborer  who used to be satisfied with $3 a day now demands $5 and $6; the farmer who used to yearn  for a one-dollar wheat price now demands two;  thirty-cent butter and eggs���������������������������pre-war price���������������������������now  fetch 60 cents.    One might go on indefinitely,  bul what's thc use?  Only last week the Uniled Farmers of Canada  demanded thc Dominion lo sel thc price on wheat  ���������������������������to main lain Uic price of thc war period. Thcy  want to make lhcir fellow citizens pay them an  excess profit of $1 or $1.25 a bushel, to do which  lhc Dominion Government would he compelled  lo raise by special loan or lax a hundred millions.  We la Ik aboul millions and billions loday as wc  used to talk aboul thousands. For instance, it  used lo cosl the Uniled Slates Governmcnl one  billion dollars lo run the nation for one whole  ^==_Jj:ca_r.=;V]2us_aJii o u nUis=n o\v=-bei n g_mised^-jy-Un el c  Sam lo maintain lhc price of lhis year's wheal at  $2.26 a bushel. Every loaf of bread in lhe United  . Stales and Canada will bc taxed to help pay lhc  fanner his excess profit.  Jn the face of these fads, what's thc use of crying about profiteering and tin's Bolshevism stuff-?  Jf thc governments will deliberately make profiteering possible, and thereby bring about condition* which make for Bolshevism, we'll have  Bolshevism despite all lhc brooms on thc ocean  shore.  * Thc man who docs not know that lo set a profiteering price on wheat means that automatically  u profiteering price is set on everything else, has  not studied the problem closely.    -"������������������", ^.a*w.  Away back in bibical times high corn (wheat)  prices meant correspondingly high prices on  everything else. And this condition has always  obtained. It is tlie same today and will be the  same for all time. It gets a country nowhere to  Jbring on a condition and thdri 'decry-the effects!  ing the vital issue, although every day lost increases the d'iilk-ulties in achieving thc principal  object which ;.\ Ve iVW^hjnent of permanent  peace. Even iV' accv-j.-ViK-c by lhe enemy of lhe  allies' conditions, followed by signature of a  treaty, would VV now sullice to terminate the  universal crisis. What is needed are" condilions  enabling European people lo resume work. Without this there is no hope for the League of Nations; nor for peace,., nor for lhc arrest of the  ever-swelling rush "of lhc frenzied movement  against authority, government and order. I  "While the confernce is deliberating and ad-*  journing; reconciling contradictory resolutions,!  the groundwork of the politico-social community  of nations is crumbling away. Nearly one million unemployed in Germany are disheartened by  thc perspective of having to devote the remainder of their lives to toil, unprofilably for themselves, and arc prepared to strike, emigrate or  reljcl as an alternative.  "In  the conference two strongly-marked currents are distinguishable, which thc latest committee of co-ordination has not yet succeeded in  harmonizing.    Thc one starts from thc implied  axiom that the Teutons will for all time remain  the enemies of civilization, against whom conditions of peace and the rules of the League of Nations   must   be   deliberately   and   permanently  directed.   The other recognizes thc necessity for  punishing the Germans and their confederates for  past crimes, but admits that these can be expiated  and refuses -to issue a decree of permanent" outlawry against their present adversaries.   Tliis divergence is the source of considerable delay and  the occasion of deadlocks.  ,  "The Anglo-Saxon delegates incline toward the  latter view, in accordance with which they are endeavoring  tor solve  the various  problems  submitted thcrii.    Thcy display unbounded willingness to assist France rationally to obtain all possible compensation for the diabolical destruction  o'f cities, houses, factories and soil, and to accord  priority.to her claims, together with Belgium's,  but they demand that all the delegates give solid  adherence to common sense and not insist on extracting oil from a millstone.   Thcy contend that  Germany can  not pay enough  to "dispense thc  heroic French nation from taxing itself as the  British  and  Americans  are  taxing themselves;  that the Germans cannot pay anything which is  not surplus production; that they must therefore  be allowed to manufacture, sell and export; that  territorially artificial conditions running counter  to the principles of nationality, se|f-determina-  tion and justice are more dangerous than profitable and should be avioded; that national problems cannot be solved independently of international interests nor thc future sacrificed to the  1,000.

In the  presentation,of the various reports to thc meeting,H  thc fact was emphasized that there had been a'Jj  marked improvement and increase over previous 17  ycars whilst thc business connections of thc cx-'J^  change had been greatly strengthened.    The in- 20  crease in  thc total volume of business handled  was 676 Ions or 25 per ccnl more lhan-in 1917.  Apples constituted a very large pari of ihis increased production, thc quantity handled during  last year (1918) being an increase of 70 per cent  over "the previous year.   Berries and stone fruits  also showed a very substantial increase.  :._.Thc_Rrices_rcalizcd.durmg lhe_p������������������si-ypf������������������r- I'or all  ,' i  kinds of fruil averaged aboul 30 per cent over  (hose of 1917 and this, wilh thc increased production, enabled the exchange "lo distribute  among thc growers'nearly onc hundred thousand  dollars morc than in 1917. This fact would no  doubt stimulate growers to greater effort whilst,  at the same time, demonstrating lhc importance  of Salmon Arm as a fruit growing district. The  gross profits of the year's turnover was 7.6 per  cent, expenditures (including government loan)  amounted to 5.6 per cent, leaving a net profit of  2 per cent. Thc total turnover amounted to $258,-  537.79, the net profit being $5,297.58. A dividend  of 6 per cent was declared, and $1,000 placed to  reserve fund.���������������������������Salmon Ann Observer.  Max.

Their business is making better, and  to do this thcy find it necessary to have cream,  consequently they have determined that if the  cream will not come promptly to the Creamery,  then the'Creamery will speedily go after the  cream. To accomplish this with the greatest dispatch the Kelowna Creamery has purchased a  splendidly equipped automobile, which arrived in  the city Tuesday. The car will carry 1,000 pounds  in weight and has a 35 h.p. engine of four cylinders. The cost of this car to the Creamery is  $1,825.00, but it is believed tliat tliis sum -will be  speedily repaid by the quickened transmission of  cream ahd the saving of time to the farmers.���������������������������  Kelowna Courier.  a  Q  1  o  3  ���������������������������I  f)  6  8  8  9  10  11  12  13  14  15  16  17  18  19  20  21  22  23  24  25  26  27  28  32  27  25  29  35  34  32  29  37  41  40  40  40  36  37  38  4t  37  36  36  37  35  21  20  29  32  .27  16  10  7  16  23  20  9  10  27  28  33  25  29  20  26  32  28  15  ,.27  28  >28  27  12  -2  14  14  19  11  -5  s  cs  is-  *-,  22  20  9  6  15  23  22  2  9  8  15  11  20  10  5  10  26  10:  8  8  10  23  23  6  15  13  16  21  i  o  s  C/3  Vi  I  I  9  ���������������������������read the MARCJJ number'of  TRE RRITISH CQhVMBU  FARMED  (Formerly Fruit and Farm)  Official organ of the Unite*!

Why we've seen men  ancl women do more work in an hour at tennis or  somc othcr sport than they would do" in aVnonth  in the home or oflice. Yet women must bc emancipated. We have it on the authority of Mrs. Charlotte Perkins Gilman of New York, author .of  "The Man-made World." Mrs. Gilman recently  visited Toronto and addressed the United Women  Voters of the "City of the Good." Mrs. Gilman  has discerned a new arid far-reaching stronghold  of human bondage���������������������������the home. Her theory is  that domestic labor was originally imposed on  women by man, whom shc regards as a lazy .and  selfish animal; and that the time has come when  domestic labor should cease. Hcr Toronto address was largely confined to the cooking problem, and she presented elaborate statistical information to show that the labor women now bestow  on preparing food1 represents waste; firstly, because comparatively few women arc good cooks;  and secondly, because cooking could bc pooled  or syndicated under a system of communal kitchens, with a resultant saving of labor and expense.  Where one's heart is in his work, labor ceases  to be drudgery; in fact, onc is not content to be  away from it, or to allow more frivolous things  to interfere with it. Wc have noticed that the  women whose hearts are in their home have very  little desire to be "cmancipatcd."Emancipators of  tliis ilk arc largely women without homes or  lacking in the home-making spirit. The real  homemakers of tlie land are the last to want to  bc "emancipated."  A Wise Swede  A Swede went into a lawyer's office to get him  lo make out a conveyance for some land he had  purchased. Hc said he wanted a mortgage, but  the lawyer said he should have a warranty deed.  "No," said the Swede, "I once had a wananty  deed to a farm, but another man had a mortgage  and he got the farm.   I want a mortgage."  c  School Teachers Organize  An interesting movement has just been started  in the Okanagan Valley.

Thc meeting was a most enthusiastic onc, and  the unanimous opinion was that the teachers of  the Okanagan should form an association, which  later should be affiliated1 with the Teachers' Federation of British Columbia,       y  An effort will be made to reach every teacher in  the Valley during the next few weeks for the purpose of inviting ..membership. It was also proposed to arrange a general convention of teachers  some time tliis spring. The arrangements were  left in the hands of thc "executive.���������������������������Summerland  'Review.

Mr. Campbell Sweeny, Provincial Chairman of  the British Columbia Division, National War Savings Committee, recently said:  'The war. is over, and it might bc thought patriotic effort in thc way of saving and lending to  thc Government is no longer necessary, but this  is not the case for the following reasons: While  actual fighting'has stopped, an army of occupation will have to be kept in thc enemy country  for somc time, and Canada musl furnish its  quota of this army. The payment and provision  for our army during the course of demobilization  has also to bc provided for. and, above all, money  must be found to properly pension our soldiers,  and provide for thc dependents of those who havc  made the great sacrifice for our protection and  for the preservation of the freedom of the world.  "Further, much money will be required for the j  development of our natural resources, by which j  means alone can we pay voff thc heavy national  debt the war has imposed upon us, and for all  these purposes we must finance ourselves, for  the rest of the world wants what money it has for  its own uses.   The success of the Victory Loans  has proved conclusively that Canada can finance  herself if shc determines to do so, and what is  asked of her now is to supplement thc magnificent bursts of patriotism which have produced  over $1,000,000,000 in two years, by persistent  economy, and so steadily.kept the country's cof-j  fers fillet! and the country's soldiers fed, and the  country's industries flourishing."

Sharpe  Wholesale and Retail Butcher  Enderby  LAND REQUIREMENTS FOR INDIAN RESERVES  ARE GREATLY OVERESTIMATED  Away back in 1884, Wm. Smith, the Chief  Commissioner of Lands and Works of tlie Province, summed up the case relating to our Indian  reserves in a single letten more forcibly than all  tlie reports of Indian Commissions have done  from tliat day to this. These Indian commissions  nust have cost tlie Dominion hundreds of thbus-  ds of dollars, yet we have to see a report���������������������������and  many have been printed���������������������������which gives the situation so clearly as this letter written by Mr.  Smithe to Mr. O'Reilly, then engaged in selecting  lands to be held in reserve for tlie Indians.  When it is remembered that the amount of  reserve lands in the Okanagan Valley is 850 acres  for each Indian family of five persons, the injustice of the case, in view of tliis letter, is painfully  apparent partitcularly when 160 acres is all the  government allows a white man and liis family as  a homestead.   But read tlie letter:  Thc Cliief Commissioner of Lands and Works  to Mr. O'Reilly.  "Victoria, B. C, November 29th, 1884.  "Referring to your letter of the 25th inst, covering a 'return showing the number of Indians residing in thc Kootenay district, thc number of  horses and cattle owned by them, also the total  acreage enclosed or cultivated.' I have the honor  to say that in the return there is nothing to indicate how many families are upon, or in the vicinity 'of,, the several tracts of land which you  have proposed for reserves in the Kootenay District. The total number of Indians for the whole  district is given, but whether they are equally di-  divided among the several allotments is not made  clear.  "It think it my duty to call your attention to the  following facts:  "British Columbia, under the Terms of Union,  is required to make as liberal an allowance of  land for the use and benefit of the Indians  as was the custom before Confederation, under  thc Colonial Government. <��������������������������� It was found, upon  enquiry after Confederation, that the custom previous thereto has becn to allot ten acres to each  family of five persons; but tlie Dominion Government, upon assuming the care and control of the  Indians of the Province, asked for more liberal  grants of land than had becn customary, representing that tlie welfare of the Indians demanded  a larger allowance. Tlie utmost amount of land  asked for, however, by the Dominion authorities,  to beset apart for tlie benefit of the Indians, was  SOacrcs to each family of fiye persons.- The Provincial government of the day demurred to giving  80 acres, which,lhcy considered to be an excessive  area, and they offered to give 20 acres to each1  family of five, persons. After a great deal of correspondence, the Dominion Government assented  to the view of the Provincial Government, and hy  Srder in Councirdated 24tli of April, W4. agreed  to accept a reserve of 20 acres to each five persons.  Subsequently, it is true, an arrangement was  made by which the agreement to give and lake respectively 20 acres to each live persons was superseded, and commissioners were appointed, representing both governments, to deal with tlie whole  question of Indian reserves In the province.and  to majce such allotments as might,be necessary,  according to the various requirements of the  several tribes, without being bound by strict limit  of 20 acres to each live persons. The idea was,  as I have always understood it, that under certain  circumstances and conditions the area previously  agreed upon might be found either too large or  too small than was requisite, and that the Commissioners should he at liberty tp give a less or  greater amount, as the reasonable requirements  or necessities of the case might demand.||ow very  and when they should become more advanced and  able to cultivate and make productive larger areas  the true policy would be to keep them no longer  in tutelage, but to enfranchise them and enable  tliem to take land in the same way, to the same  extent, and under the same conditions of settlement and improvement as others citizens do.  "(Signed)     S������������������ Wm. Smithe, T    ,  "Chief Commissioner of Lands and Work."  CHINESE IN FIGHTING MOOD  different was tlie view ofTlielCommissioners, the  areas they set apart as reserves, with such reckless extravagance, in ail parts of the country, amply demonstrate.  "Since you have had the work of laying out reserves I am bound to say tliat a much fairer and  accurate appreciation of the Iduties and responsibilities has been displayed. At the same time, I  cannot but think that in Kootenay you have overestimated the requirments of the Indians and under-estimated those of thc whites, who, if not  there now, arc more than likely in thf nar future  to be found there, anxiously looking for land to  settle upon.  "I find that the area proposed by you lo be  given to the Kootenay Indians amounts, to about  440 acres to each family of li\e persons; and  when, as is reported by you, the proporlio??ate  area enclosed and cultivated by the tribe is only  about one acre to each family, it does not appear  that any necessity for 439 across more of unenclosed land, to be set apart for each ������������������������������������������������������of them, exists. No one, I think, will venture lo say that Indians are capable of using as much land as white  men, and our Land Act only contemplates providing a homestead of 320 acres to a white family  in the same district, and the Dominion authorities  only recognize a white settler's claim to 160 acres  of land within their own railway reserve.  "I am of opinion lhat so long as Indians are so  slightly advanced in the ways and customs of civilisation, it will be impossible for them to utilize  tracts of land more than sufficient for while men;  In recent weeks hundreds of Chinese have left  Canada for their homeland. Several days ago a  Chinaman���������������������������one of a carload and one of many  carloads which have come west to Vancouver���������������������������  was asked why they were going hack to China  and the rcpy came quickly: "To fight the Japs."  This is thc reply commonly given, and in view of  the following will be understandable:  John O'Brien, of the London Times cable service, in a'special to the Vancouver Province from  Paris, says:  "Thcrc is going to be one of the liveliest sessions of the Council of Ten when the Japanese  clause, relating to Tsingtao and the Pacific Islands comes up for formal consideration. The  delegation from Peking is ready to fight to the  last against permitting Japan fo get away with  what the Chinese openly denounce as 'aggressive  imperialism.' Basing their attitude on the Wilson idea of the 'League of Nations,' the Chinese  delegates make no secret of their hope that out of  the peace conference will a new China arise free  from all alien interference. Nor do they hesitate  to affirm that unless the Far Eastern question is  solved in accordance with the fundamental principle of thc right of every nation to dispose of  itself freely, the hope of preventing or minimizing the chance of future wars by the League of  Nations is illusory.  "Ever since the publication of reports, counter-reports, denials and counter-assertions regarding thc. alleged secret treaty between Japan  and China there has been a feeling here that an  explosion was bound to come. It came Monday  night. It was heralded by the apparently guileless invitation: 'Mr. Lou Tseng ,Tsaing requests  the pleasure of your company at tea on Tuesday.'  "Being Mardi Gras, we rgarded the party as  merely^ an Oriental, .courtesy' to foreign newspapermen. ^It was. more than that. Gathered at the  Hotel Letunia we found the entire Chinese dele  It  gation to the peace conference.  . J "It .was before tliis assembly, after a few words  of greeting in1 French by the Chinese envoy to  Paris, that Chanting T. Wang delivered a speech  in English, setting forth China's desire for *Jib-  eratiomor release.from the burdens and conditions imposed, on her in the interest of aggrssive  imperialism and necessarily in conflict with herself in conditions of. life.'  "Wang, who is a Vale graduate, referred to  'tlie unfortunate series of wars' which brought  China into the orbit of alien civilization, recounting tlie difficulties she encountered in adapting  her life to the new environment, fle detailed the  obstacles placed in her way to prevent China  from entering tlie war on tlie side of the allies  and made a plea for 'international order in which-  we shall be free to life untrammeled and un-  threatened by. a type of state whose material  greatness is based on war.'  "To my question: 'Is not ityr. Wang's speech a  pretty plain intimation that Japan entered the  war for purely selfish ends?' JCoo j^ade this  cryptic reply: 'According to what lie says, yes.'  "Quo^Tai^GhHwas^ess^secreUver^He^showed  me a mass of documents which lie said were un  published official Japanese letters proving that  Japan's sole reason for entering the war was to  obtain full control of tlie Shantung Peninsula and  possession of the Pacific Islands north of the  equator. These documents will be used in support of China's contention before the Council of  Ten.    Until then they are not to be published."  Encouraging Habit of Thrift.  Illustrating what one patriotic and enthusiastic  school principal has done lo encourage the habit  of*thrift.among his pupils and incidentally showing what others can do to further the success of  the war savings campaign, Mr. James Gordon,  principal of Hie Kelowna Public School, has organized a scheme for the benefit of his own  scholars. Every Thursday the children bring  their quarters to the school and purchase Thrift  Stamps, MrVGordon buying sufficient from the  local bank to satisfy requirements. When thc  pupil has acquired 16 Thrift Stamps they are exchanged for a War Savings Stamp. Tlie total  sales are published in the local newspapers each  week, and thus the children and their parents arc  kept in touch with tlie progress of the War Savings plan. Mr. Gordon commenced with a 'very  satisfactory week, and confidently predicts increased returns as the interest has grown con-  siderablv.  ESTABLISHED     1872,  BANK. OF HAMILTON  Thrift is of vital importance, but alone it is not  sufficient at tlie present stage in Canada's development. The money saved must be used for  the production of new wealth in order tliat the  growth of the country may be unhampered The  Bank of Hamilton assists and encourages increased production.

J. D. SWANSON, C. C. J.  Pat's Appendix  Pat had been seized with  violent pains and was hurried to  a hospital. Tlie physician in  change informed liim tliat he  had appendicitis, and tliat an  operation was necessary as his  appendix would have to be removed immediately.  Pat had not the least idea of  what an appendix was, and so  informed tlie physician, who  laughingly told him that after  tlie operation he would leave  the appendix in tlie window, so  that he could see it when he  was able to sit up.  Some days after the operation  Pat's curiosity got thc belter of  him and he raised up his head  in bed to take a look at his appendix. To his amazement a  monkey was sitting on thc window sill, and when hc saw Pat  hc began to make faces and to  dialler* at a great,rate.  Thc astonished Irishman gave  thc monkey a long, hard look,  and then exclaimed: "Don't do  that, me boy, don't do that;  can'l you sec your mother is a  very sick man?"  ���������������������������  INTERESTING NEW GOODS  Mrs. Munro Leaving  Mrs.A.
