T. Hull, a number of share-  c holders attending.   F. Ri S. Barlee,  cecretary-treasurer, read a report on  the operations of the association for  the past year-  Robert Mann read the following  very interesting address on the need  of cooperation among tbe fruit  growers of the valley:  "Gentlemen: With another year  gone by���������with another fairly ��������� successful season behind us, it is with  a good deal of pleasure that I read  ^ this, my final report as president of  the Fruit Growers' association of  Grand Forks.  "During the past  year   we  have  watched events  of   world-wide   importance.   We have seen   the  Great  War  develop  in   magnitude   till it  surpasses anything that the imagination  could   have   pictured   even a  year ago.    We have seen our   brave  allies   hold   theirlrnes    against unnumbered foes���������we   have seen our  heroic sons  again  and again cover  themselves with that  unsung  glory  which we have come to accept aa ours  by right of   relationship   with those  glorious   Canadians   overseas.     We  have seen political upheavals of far  reaching   extent   in   most   of ' the  warring   countries;   we   have   consented by an overwhelming  vote to  allow those of our j'ounger men who  have   not   already sacrificed themselves to be taken away from us.  "All these events have   conspired  to change us.     We are no   longer a  normal' people���������as an empire we are  bordering  on   the   hysterical���������as a  nation we have become more or less  morbid in our thoughts, and as   individuals we have for so   long   be.  come inured to the awful catastrophe  that our very feelings of   humanity  have left us, and the long daily   casualty  lists   uo   longer   excite more  tha'u passing comment. Such conditions are bound to have their   effect  on our every day affairs. There is no  trade, business nor  profession   that  finds itself uuaft'ected, and   perhaps  no class of people finds itself so concerned as the farmer and the rancher.  "We have no desire to offer  criticisms  or   comments that could   be  construed as playing at. politics; .yet  we may be permitted   to   point   out  that while we are the most adversely affected by current events, yet we  are not in the least   protected   from  excessive   taxation.     Whatever our  opinions as individuals, we may not  as a society discuss political matters,  still   less   can   we  hope to remedy  things till ourselves, our leaders,our  governments and the civilized world  return to a normal state of mind and  perspective.  ''Our only hope of salvation in  these strenuous and history making  days is our mutual assistance. Cooperation is the keynote of the day  benefits and are rapidly attaining a  place of power undreamed of and  impossible by individual effort. Our  political leaden* will eventually  reach their object through cooperation-, an object beyond the hopes of  statesmen while individual effort  and political strife held sway. Our  empire united with brave and unconquerable allies will in the end  triumph over a ruthless enemy;  whereas we"are all aware that these  same allies.with the same resources,  courage and leaders would as individuals bow down before a'proud  and arrogant conqueror.  "Let us, therefore, take to our  selves this lesson that ie set before  us. At no time in the. history of  fruit growing in British Columbia  and in this valley has our very existence as fruit growers been so  threatened. We have it on unim  peachable authority that this year  we are to see an offensive launched  against us by commission men and  the larger buyers. It is to their particular advantage that we should be  unorganized and unprepared As individuals they will play us against  one another till we can no longer resist and will he forced to accept  what terms they are willing to offer  us, and our work of years will be  undone. Together we can combat  them, and the stronger the front  with which we oppose them at the  start the quicker will they understand that while at other points they  may dictate prices and terms, yet in  the Kettle valley there is a weapon  called Cooperation that no individuals, as individuals, may combat.  "Had we been   threatened  as we  are now several years ago we would  have done well to fear the result, for  these   commission    men   and   large  buyers   are   men   who  understand  well the value of organization, for it  is by this very means that  they  are  able to do their most effective work.  They do not venture With   hope   of  success - into   a   district   wheie cooperation is a tried and proven  success   It is into districts such as ours  where'.we are   more   recently   combined and where some of our neigh  bors are siill acting  as individuals  and hold-outs, and where certain of  the members of our association   are  not   thoroughly   convinced   of   the  effectiveness of combination.   There  are   none   of   us but are men who  have the ability  to   think   for  ourselves, yet we have joined ourselves  together for our mutual benefit, and  from a beginning of   heavy   indebtedness and few assets we have grown  to a point where success   is   within  sight,    Shall   we   let  one season of  doubtful progress upset the advance  made in several   year??    The   very  fact   of   last, year's   infeorior crop  should spur us on to greater efforts���������  it   should teach   us   lo   prepare for  other poor seasons.    The  lesson   to  be learned from last  year's   ex peri-  CHASE AFTE  Old Prospector Barricades  His Cabin at Moody-  Greek  Immigration Inspector P. T. McCallum, Constable Stanfield and  Chief of Police Norgrove had an ex  citing chase for a demented man on  Friday last.  Some time ago Phil Reilly, an old  prospector of this district, was released from an American asylum for  the insane as cured. Recently he  made application to re-enter the  country to do assessment on some  claims that he owns at Moody creek.  His case was referred to Ottawa.  Ottawa consented to grant the ��������� request provided he was rational. At  that time he appeared to be perfectly rational, and Inspector McCallum allowed him to enter the  country  Recently complaints have come  from Cascade that Reilley has been  making gunplays and threatening  to shoot people on sight. These complaints became so peisistent, that  on Friday the three officers decided  to go to Moody creek- to arrest .the  man.  At : Moody creek they found  Reillv's cabin empty. Tbe building  tiad oeen well barricaded, however,  and all the weapons of modern warfare,except an airplane, a submarine  and a poison gas machine, were in  evidence. After couriderbble searching and inquiring the officers learned  that Reilly had gone to Paulson,and  they left for that place.  At Paulson Reilly was found  Reilly sitting outside a cabin. The  officers walked up to him when he  was unaware of their approach.  Mr. McCallum picked up the trusty  laying at his side,and while engaged  in examining it asked if it was  loaded. Reilly replied that it was  not. A later examination, however,  showed that it contained seven  shells.  Reilly was arrested and brought  to this city. He has since been deported.  free   and   frank  criticisms and dis  cussions  have   not   weakened   b  i  rather strengthened our association,  and have mada of us all better  friends, better neighbors and better  members of tbe association. I have  enjoyed my term of office and it is  with the greatest reluctance that I  herewith ��������� resign from that office.  While certain private matters force  me to this step, I intend to remain  a momber of the association, but  must positively refuse to serve as  either officer or director. I feel,  moreover, that there are members to  whom this honoris more due, and  also there are members who should  feel it their duty to give a little raoie  time to the association, aud this  feeling, together with outside matters, causes me to ask you to consider this my formal lesignation. I  will do a 1 in my power to further  the best interests of our association,  I will not let outside influences  swerve me Ironi the cause of cooperation, and my whole belief is  expressed in these my final words,  'United we stand, divided we fall.' "  The following officers were elecred  for the coming year: Directors, Tal-  fourd Padgett, J. T. Lawrence, S. T.  Hull.C. A. S. Atwood, C. C. Heaven,  H. W. Collins and Robert Mann;  secretary-treasurer, F. R. S Barlee;  auditor, Dan McKinnon.  A general discussion ensued regarding the operations last year and  the prospects for the coming season.  On motion, a vote of thanks was  tendered to the president, Robert  Mann, for his excellent address and  regret expressed at his resignation  as president.  The meeting adjourned to meet  agai'n on Saturday, the loth inst.,  when the auditor will present his  report..  A meeting' of the directors was  then held, and Talfourd Padgett  was elected president and J. T, Lawrence vice president.  Product of.

After  the ceremony an elaborate wedding  breakfast was given at the home of  the groom, at which about forty  guests were present.  Mrs. F. M. Kerby, who has been  in Spokane for a couple of weeks  obtaining special medical treatment  for her hand, in which blood poisoning set in after she injured it some  time ago, returned home on Saturday. Her physician thinks there  will be a compline recovery from  the effects of her injuries.  In connection with the large undertaking of the Granby Mining,  Smelting & Power company on Vancouver island, where, in the vicinity  of Cassidy's Landing.near Nanaimo,  coal areas recently acquired are now  being developed aud already a 1-1-  foot seam of coal has been located,  work is also being proceeded with  simultaneously on the SI,000,000  coke plant of the company at Anyox  This piant will be supplied with coal  from the . company's holdings on  Vancouver island.  The coking plant at Anyox, with  needed docking and other facilities  incidental thereto, will be located at  Graves Point, a mile and one-.half  from the company's great copper  smelting plant. The ground has already been cleared of timber and tbe  surface earth is being removed by  hydraulic giants. The main dock  has been completed and piles are  being driven for the railway approach. Storage sheds are being  erected, the brick shed alone to have  a floor area of half an acre. Excavation for the coal bunkers has been  finished and construction ou the  coke bunkers started. These will  be 52 feet wide and 300 feet long  and more than 705,000 feet of lumbar will be used in their construction. The bins will have a total  capacity of 12,000 tons of coal.  , Besides coke to be made out of  fbe.coal from the company's holdings on the islaud, the plant at Anyox will produce gas, also valuable  in smelting coal tar and other byproducts.  It is estimated that by having its  own source of coal supply wherewith to manufacture its coke the  company not only will save 50 cents  a ton on its coke,- but will be independent of othr sources. Its experience of two years ago, when there  was such a shortage of coke that its  Grand Forks plant had to shut  down, was the motive which impelled the company, to secure its  own source of supply.

Mr  Mi*. Willcox exhibted undue concern regarding The Sun's circulation, and if the statements attributed to him by some of our friends  are true, he indulged in some wilful misrepresentations. Why Mr. Willcox should bother  himself about our business affairs is not entirely beyond our comprehension. For his in-  furmation we may state that The Sun would  not trade subscription lists with the Trail  paper, either from a numerical standpoint or  by valuation of the lists as indicated ,by the  class of people that read the respective papers.  About a year ago half a dozen country papers  in this province were gold bricked into buying  out-of-date typesetting'machines. The Trail  newspaper colossns was oiip of the half dozen.  At that time Mr. Willcox threw out his chest  (there is really nothing to the man but chest,  unless it's wind) and decreed that every paper  that didn't own one of these out-of-date machines and a few fonts of obsolete type would  have to get out of business.

Tbe  half mil'ion Americans now in  France have had on the average tbe  same period of apprenticeship.  Probably most of them are destined  to make their stand on almost the  same ground as did the Canadians,  and against a German offensive with  the same objective.���������Toronto Globe.

With th'e greater activity throughout the  province, consequent on war-time needs,  the telephone has been a great adjunct  to the speedy termination of business. It  supplements personal effort 'to ' the last  degree, in tact its usefulness speaks for  itself. That it is such -a great utility,  facilitating endeavor along every .line, is  due to the co operative human element  behind the scenes which makes the valuable, inanimate equipment intensely useful.  The aim is to make the telephone of' the  greatest use and convenience to every  user.  BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE  COMPANY, LTD.  News of the City  The log drive on tbe main  river for  the Cascade mill was at   Midway   last  week  and is now   nearing   this   city.

THE "WHY" IN  FLOUR MILLING  "Wbv was the flour miller put un-  ��������� tier license?"  In June last the millers' profits on  flour were fixed at "25 cents a barrel.  This alone would not keep clown the  price of (lour. Tbcregore the price of  wheat was fixed.  With tbe' limitation of millors'  profits some firms found found more  profit in taking out of the grain a  larger proportion of tho higher priced  feods, as tho prices of these ran away  up. But this reduced the domestic  floursupply.. Then tho price on bmn  and shorts w-is fix-id and other feeds  were rr>t ullowed to be marie.  Later the "extraction" was set at  74 per cent of the wheat berry, i a,  the miller was compelled to   mill    hi.s  giain   to   give   74   per  cent flour for  human food, leaving for   feed 26  per  cent, for feed for cattle had to be sup-  p'ied also.  a  The application of this fairly to the  small man and the big firm alike  could only be done by the license system. "What was sauce for the goose  was sauce for the gander."  The small man has thus not been  ousted from the essential war work of  food production. He lias feed given a  chance? in trade at equal profit with  the big firm. Theoulv variable fac-  tor in the price of wheat today is  railway freight; tbe Canada food  board has no control over this part.

Four years of war have taken from  " the Dominion a heavy toll in talent and .labor, yet despite the shortage of man  power our Allies still depend on Canada to maintain her own fignhng forces at full  strength and'to increase her exports of food and war materials, so vital to them, and to  the successful prosecution of the war.  Every ounce by which Canada can increase her food production and every ounce Canada  can save in her food consumption is needed for export to the Allies.  Should the war continue for emolher year, food cards and a rationing system may Rave to  be inslitu ted. It is tlie duty of Canada to be prepared for whatever situation circumstances  may force upon her. ,-,,1,1  It is quite probable that before the war is wen our Government may have lo place  restric ions upon the occupations in which men and women may engage. In such an  event the Government wishes to be in a position to render all possible assistance in  keeping our population usefully and profitably employed.  Registration  The.re conditions point to the necessity of Canada  knowing the exadt capabilities of her men and  women at home.  AH persons residing in Canada, male or female,  British or alien of 1G years and over, will be required  to register on June 22nd and truthfully answer the  questions set forth upon the registration card.  It is not the Government's intention to conscript  labour in any form, but to assist in directing it wisely,  ���������/������  &zJ  21  so that every available unit of human energy may be  Utilized to the best advantage.  The information procured through registration will  be used as an aid to the Military Authorities in pro-  curing the men necessary to maintain "Canada's  First Line of Defenoe"���������to mobilize all unit3 of available labor in the Dominion and direct them from less  essential to more essential occupations���������to establish  and intelligently administer a system of food rationing  should that become necessary.
