Entire  unanimity  prevailed, and the   business   of   the  meeting was transacted without any  jarring or unpleasant  controversies.  C. H. Kerman was elected  chairman.    There  were 45,000  acres of  land in valley, he   said, that could  be brought under irrigation  by   the  proposed  system,   and the  cost be  estimated  at   from  S6U   to $70 per  acre.    The   loss  sustained   by   the  ranchers this year from   drouth,  he  felt justified in saying,   would   have  installed the system.    ������������������������������������-���������  J. T.

Common strawberry diseases and   remedial   measures as well as general  instructions  for the gardener .who is interested in  growing this fruit   are also included  in   this   bulletin.   Occasionally the  yield of fruit is severely reduced by  the   strawberry   weevil.    This is a  small dark snout beetle   which  cuts  off the blossom buds. Early varieties  of strawberries  appear most 'subject  to seiious  injury.   .In   addition   to  clean cultivation paotection may   be  obtained by coating the plants with  adust  composed  of  one   part  (by  weight)   arsenate   of   lead and five  pounds finely gaound sulphur.

A  resolution   had   been preparer!  citing thefactthat when the   minister of lands visited the city a couple  of years ago   be   had    promised   an  irrigation system for the valley, and  that    the   present, with   the Granby  smelter closed down,   making  labor  conditions more favorable, was  an  opportune time tosrarl work on the  system without any expense  to  th^  government.

"The strike bus not been  an   unmixed evil by any manner of means,  it has   awakened the  people   from  their   apathetic    slumbers,   it   has  shown the government that the problems of the   undesirable aliens, the  profiteers and the high cost of living  must be satisfactorily   handled   immediately   and   that if  tie present  government is unable to till the bill,  another government must   take   its  place; in other   words,   the   present  strike has forced public attention on  what the G.W.V.A. has been urging  on the government for months."

FRIDAY, JULY 4, 1919  Knock Yourself Down  ���������The question-is being put; straight to the  workmen in British Colu mbia, "Constructive  cooperation or destiu'ctive ������������������warfare?'-' Which  is it to be? Other countries are cited as examples, and conditions there are taken as the  standard for the base of operations, which is  neither fair nor reasonable, when it is remembered how different conditions are here. The  I.W.W. movement, which smouldered along  in America previous to the outbreak of anarch}' in Europe, quickly amalgamated with  bolshevism, and while the aims of the two'may  not have been absolutely identical, bolshevism  went -further and its policy of insane levelling  and destruction appealed to a certain class of  men who up to that time had not the nerve to  go the limit;  Events in Europe have proved that radicalism, like a great storm of tire, is working itself  out, and no good of any kind; has resulted..  Instead, there is-debris in its path, and murder, starvation and disease are rampant. Death  crowns its work.  Despite the fact that conditions on the  American continent are so much different than  in Europe, ranical agents endeavor to bring  about the same chaotic conditions that exist  across the sea. They presume that if radicals  could obtain such power in ilnssia that it is  possible here. They overlook the fact, however, that in this country, apart from the usu:  al number of discontents, tne great body of  workmen in all industries is laboring under  very satisfactory conditions, and that under  conditions proposed there is no prospect of  betterment.  . But we must realize that we are up against  the question, are we to be plunged into a  struggle between opposing forces which no  matter which side wins, must mean disorganization of society, and choas? Shall we have  destructive industrial war, or shall there be  constructive planning and mutual cooperation  between those who work and those who plan the  work? Every day each of us is called upon to  give this question serious consideration, for it  is constantly propounded on all sides.  Any one will acknowledge that if the world  can be shown something better it would not  hesitate to make the change. If there were  some system suggested to take the place of  that under which wc now work, then the  proposition would be worth considering. But  those who would disrupt the industrial world  offer nothing tangible to take the place of  what we now have.  They pattern their policies after those which  have been proved to be total failures in Kus-  sia, the country of all countries where radical  doctrines find support and where change could  be made, since industrial and social conditions are very bad compared to this country.  Radicals here even go so far as to pass resolutions of approbation and would even send  financial support, indicating by such action  that they favor chaos and anarchy.  What advantage can they offer, if you  and  I support them?    They can not refer  to any  place where such a policy has brought a single  benefit of any kind, and they  dare   not  men-  ion the misery and suffering that has resulted.  They forget that the system under which the  race lives today has been -developed after centuries of progress. They overlook to remind  us that improvement is constantly being made  here in working conditions. They do not say  that although we -may not be content with all  the details of the present system we have it in  our hands to made changes.  Shall we go about to make such changes in  a sane, reasonable, sensible way, or shall we  throw discretion to,the winds? Shall we 'level  the work of centuries, simply that demagogic  destructionists may show what ruin they can  accomplish?  . The question is a serious one. The answer  is important. While the reply may be a  straight yes or no, it is worked out by details.  As long as we remain on the job, we are building for the future, we are preventing ourselves  and our families from suffering. If we grouch  about this and complain about that, we help  to effect the ends of others who need our help.  Every day some little thing happens that either  upholds the policy of right or gives added  power to the forces that know no right and  acknowledge no standard. What are we doing fronv day to day? Do we stand firm,in our  own interests, or do we listen to suggestions  which emanate from those whose flag is liter-'  ally a skill rand cross bones?  Think what the question is, remember what  is at stake. Give your answer decidedly. That  man is foolish who kicks out from under himself the base on which he stands.  t-  *%  The class of men .in attendance at the irrigation meeting last night was an inspiration,  and augurs well for the ultimate success of  the project. The real farmers of the valley  were present, and they [made their wants  known in a manner that will lend additional  weight to their deliberations when presented  to the government. Too often in the past the  attendance at meetings .of this character has  been largely composed of shopmen and people  did not own an acre of land���������men who would  indirectly benefit by irrigation but who assumed no financial responsibility in installing  the system. For instance, it is indubitably  true that The Sun will benefit by irrigation,  but this fact does not give the editor the right  to tell a real rancher that he must mortgage  his property in order that the system may be  installed. For this reason we were glad to  see the city people, with one or two unimportant exceptions, keep in the' background last  night and allow the farmers to tell what they  wanted. When the ranchers, who will have to  pay for the system, make up their minds that  they want irrigation, they will undoubtedly  get irrigation. The government is not going  to spend a couple of hundred thousand dollars  just to please people who have no financial  responsibility in the enterprise, but only identify themselves with the movement from an  insensate craving to keep, in the limelight. In  future dealings with the government it would  be well to bear, this fact in mind.  The usual indications of federal and provincial elections are appearing on the political  surface. Thp names of prospective candidates  are now being freely mentioned. Some of  these possess some merit, and might qualify  to fill the positions to which they aspire with  reasonable dignity, while others who are endeavoring to push thomselves to the front  seem to have no other recommendation than  crass mediocrity and impudent 'gnorance.  If candidates of the latter type should unfortunately be selected, the people in a fow years  would be compelled to choose between bolshevism and the poor house. There never  was so great a need of honest, intelligent and  broadminded statesmen iu our legislative halls  as at present.

He sold your paper  and made enough out of ii in about  eighteen   months  or 'so  to pay his  trip with his mother to Europe.   He  died od the 17th day of April, 1919,'  in   the  city of  Neusatr, Hungary,  where he was attending high school,  and was buried on Good Friday, the  iSth.  He aiways had  a good   word  lor you whenever he wrote.    He had  been troubled With heart and kidney  disease for nearly  a year, and  God  only knows what troubled  the poor  youngster.   He was was wishing he  was back and safe, so God took him  in  His  care  before I could stretch  my arms out for him again. He was  16 years, 10 months and 7 days old  when  he died.   Neusatr is  where  they got at the outbreak of tbe   war  aud had to stay.   It's the  first news  for nearly three years   I   have   received from them.

British Columbia  shippers will therefore continue to  ship small fruits and vegetables at  former rates, as no decision can be  made effective before August that  alter the old rates.  It is expected that the commis*  siouers will have their decision before August, and shipments of fruit,  especially apples, made after August will likely be governed by it.
