Thais was token the initial step in  the formation'.of what was tacitly  a'dmiitted to be a Uiiiit'ed1 F'a*rmers'  organization, pledged to wonk for  the best interests of the agriculturists as a whole and if necessary'to  enter :the poi'itic'al field ihr order to  gain the privileges and protection  desired. ,  l*iivj������������������.te Sessions  Chairman   Berry   expressed  (pleasure at the stand-takeni ,by Mr. Bailey  and said that  while  he liked  quick  action, he could see wlhiere it wouLd-  be   necessary' and  advisaWie  to  take  time for considonaitlion1.    There were  many varied conditions in the .province, he said, 'and  urged the utmost  franikness   in   considering   the   problems before   the meeting."    Mr.-Patterson outlined .the situation as the  United Fainmers viewed it.  He stood ���������������������������  out for  the  anaui'al   convention  aod-  cl'aimed  that such gatherings had  a  strong "moral" effect on the government and got more for the farmers  than   resolutions   pased   at   district  conventions.     He  also  felt  that the_  institutes  were cot  of  much  use in  some  instances.      ���������������������������  The chairman thereupon said he  woufid sum up by saying that tihere  was need "'for an entirely new organization. Unqualified-statements were  being made by each iparty, and he --  thought that it was mecebsary to  have a generall sinking of individual  iiiterests and a recognition of the in- ^  terests of each other.

The chairman complimented  the comimlittee irpon the unanimity  of it-s findings and then called on. 'the  secretalry of the advisory board for  the report .prepared by that 'body.  ���������������������������This was read by Secretary Griffiths and showed that the board was  in favor of a Farmers' union, but  there was a strong feeling that the  institutes should not be 'ruPed out of  exiisten'ce. The board would not feel  disposed to recommend that the  government legislate the institutes  as non-existent. However tlhe board  would recommend to the various institutes that they carefuICy consider  the advisability  of  amalgamation.  Advises Caution  Light was throw.ii on the situation  by Chairman Bailey of the advisory  and  others  board,   who   refenred   to   the   length |  gftting ���������������������������everything in sight ,and  what he favored was orre large  united body so that everyone might  profit equia'ly. Such an organization  would put the ifarmer of the Northwest irt h.is place and there would  bo fairness for all. '  "It -is Imperative that we get together and get away from government control,"  he concluded.  The oflicial resolution, as outlined  above, , was then drafted and proposed by Chiainnnan Baifey and seconded by President Copeland. There  were no dissenting votes. After the  close of the convention the delegates  were given a banquet by Kelowna  citizens, short addresses being made  by the Hon. E. D. Banrow, minister  of agriculture;  J.  W.

A Fictitious Prosperity  When Canadians were asked to buy Victory  Bonds, it was said lo be for the purpose of providing credit for needy, countries of Europe so  tbey could buy Canadian made goods in thc Canadian markets. This, it was argued, Would continue the good limes in Canada b}' providing a  ready market for. our goods. The credit was  provided and Canadian goods have becn, and  arc being, purchased���������������������������and at the most unheard-  of prices. At lhc same time, with Canadian  money backing thc foreign purchases, and thereby enabling the Canadian manufacturers of thc  goods lo virtually set their own price on them,  we have opened the way for the price manipulators lo deplete the supply at home in order to  fake advantage of  the higher prices offered  by  tlie war-stricken 'nations  viding   lhe  credit  fc  ���������������������������i^  or v.liom wc arc pro-  With  the  home   market  de-  he price manipulator gels an-  Tnsurip'jr Against Want  Mere continuous effort, accumulation without  a fixed -plan or svslem. niggardlv economy on  Ih.c onc hand and "reckless1- prodigality on the.  other., are not specifies for old age.
