 ���������%  Kettle Vallay Orchardist  =s������bu  SIXTEENTH YEAR���������No, 19  GRAND FORKS, B   C, FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 1917  $1.00 PER YEAR  rac  WED FARMERS  ASSOCIATION  Delegates to. Fruit Growers  Convention Make Their  tieports  A meeting of the B. C. Fruit  Growers' association was held in  the board of trade rooms Saturday  afternoon for the purpose of hearing  a report from J. T. Lawrence,'-delegate to the recent provincial convention at Victoria. There was  a large attendance. II. W. Collins,  who was elected director for the  Boundary district, and who also attended the convention, occupied the  chair and made quite a long speech  concerning his impressions of the  proceedings at the meeting.  Mr. Lawrence stated that while  at the coast he had had interviews  with Hon John Oliver, minister of  agriculture, and Hon. Mr. Pattullo,  minister of lands, in- refeerence to  government aid for a comprehensive  irrigation system for the valley from  the North Fork. The minister of  lands, be said, had promised either  to visit the valley personally during  ��������� "the summer or to send ah engineer  to look into the feasibility of the  scheme.  Concerning the work of the convention, Mr. Lawrence stated the  session had been fruitful of results.  Tbe most important question, to his  *��������� mind, that came before the convention, was the matter of advertising  B.C. fruits in the prairie provinces.  In this respect it was adviced that  fruit growers adopt the slogan "One  Cent a Box" for advertising pur  poses. It was agreed by the-, convention that it was absolutely necessary to carry on an extensive adver-  t'singcampaign in order to familiar-  , ize consnmers on the prairies with  the good qualities of British Columbia fruit.  A number of important resolutions had been adopted by the convention, the one of most vital in-  terest to the farmers of the province  urging the federal government to  suspend the restrictions on Oriental  labor entering British Columbia until the end of the war.  The keynote of all discussions at  the convention had been more perfect co operation among the farmers  of the country. In this connection  it was hoped that the new organization, the United Farmers of British  Columbia, which was formed in  Victoria during the convention, and  thus completing the formers' chain  from Ontario to British Columbia,  would wean agriculture of individual effort.  Tbe objects of the organization  are: To protect the interests of all  members of the agricultural industry, thereby producing for the empire's needs all products at a minimum cost, at a living profit, and to  influence direct selling to the consumers. They are to teach and  study economic national legislation,  leading toy the betterment of public  affairs. They are not going to take  part in any party politics, but are  going to educate their members to  the needs   of the  industry.    After  any,party is nominated, for parlai-  ment, he will be asked to state his  views on all matters' pertaining to  the common good'. The answers .will  be made public and the members  will vote accordingly without any  influence. This part of the constitution was the one expected to cause  long discussion. It was, however,  decided on very quickly, and the  meeting was unanimous in its decision.  Hon. John Oliver;" minister of  agriculture, gave a very farmer-like  address which put everyone in good  humor. The minister gave an outline' of his early life and remembered  being tossed over the head of a jack  ass. He had been told he was neglecting agriculture. He admitted  giving more time to railway matters  at the present' time, because they  were in a critical condition���������:some-  thing had to give way pretty quick,  SHORT LECTURES  Spring. Meeting -of. Farmers'  Institute Are Attractive  . to Ranchers   v-  and he felt it wasn't the minister.  Mr. Oliver, continuing, said: !'As*I  came'in arid heard a speaker-re-'  marking, 'You should have agricultural matters first and partyism sec-'  ond.' You are entitled to take that  attitude, because it has been a  standing disgrace to British Columbia politics that our farmers have  not had enough confidence in them-  selves to send represedtatives to  represent them in the legislature;."  He felt that it was the wisest move  ever made by the farmers to unite  all their forces. He felt there were  too many different* associations all  working for one end, yet all going  separate roads. He advised all associations to become one, and they  could depend on every assistance  from the department���������all the staff  was at their disposal; and the "pow-  der arrangements, etc., would still  be available, and better still'.'no  strings would tie the United Farmers-to the government.  Officers elected were: President,  C. G. Palmer, Vancouver Island;  vice presidents, J. W. Berry of Lang-  le~y; W. P. Moore of Vancouver Island, Mr Copeland of Kelowna, W.  E. Smith of Revelstoke, Jajmes  Johnstone . of Nelson, Mr. ^el-  mer of Summerland, and president  of.United Women's institutes.  Very instruct ve addresses w.ere  given by Roderick Mackenzie, secretary of the Canadian Council of  Agriculture; W. D. Trego and J.  Sparrow, representing the United  Farmers of Alberta.  Mr. Lawrence stated that it was  intended that the United Farmers  association should supersede some  of the existing farmers' organizations, such, for instance, as the  Fruit Growers' associations and the  Farmers' Institutes. An organizer  for the new asrociation, he said,  would visit the city during the  early summer months.  At the conclusion of Mr. Lawrence's report, a hearty vote of  thanks was tendered the delegate  and and the new director for their  exhaustive reports .of the proceedings at the convention.  The   Musical   Eckardts  large   audience    to'  the  theatre.on Tuesday night,  formance was even better  drew  a  Empress  The per-  than  en-  tainments given by this company in  this city iu former years, and lovers  of good music had a real treat. All  who attended were well satisfied  with the show, and had an enjoyable evening.  " The spring meetings of the Grand  Forks Farmers' Institute are now  being held in the hoard of trade  rooms in this city. On last night's  program as speakers were W. E. McTaggart, prairie market's commissioner, whose office is in Calgary,  and M. S. Middleton, district horticulturist for the Kootenay. The  former spoke on ';Advertising and  Marketing Fruit," and tbe latter  took for his subject, "Control of  Apple Scab."  -  -'Mr. ^ilcTaggart, the first speaker,  dwelt on the-importance of the grow  ers   having   representatives on the  prairie markets.    He   informed the  growers that they would hava to be  more   independent   of government  support, as the government intended  to cut down all agricultural   appropriations. He dwelt at length on the  value of advertising  their  products  'to make them attractive to the prairie consumer.and   thejeby  increase  the demand. Stating that the  competition   on  the Winnipeg   market  would be harder, he urged the grower  to   appeal   to  the patriotism of the  consumer at that point. Every fruit  grower   should   contribute one cent  per box for advertising in  order  to  counteract on the  extensive   advertising that was  being  planned  out  by the American competitors.    The  ���������speaker's idea was to put the  B  in  boost and make the*B. C. fruits the  best   known and biggest consumed  fruit on  the  prairie markets.    Mr.  McTaggart pointed out that the fruit  growers  need   never   be   seriously  alarmed over the prairies producing  any negligible quantity of fruit.  M. S. Middleton, district horticulturist for the Kootenay,. dealt  with, horticultural questions with  special reference to apple scab. He  was listened to with interest. The  manner in which he treated his subject showed, that he is a close student  of fruit pests and that he has given  much stndy to their control.  At the close of their addresses  both speakers were tendered a  hearty vote of thanks.  This afternoon, at 1#0, Dr. A.  Knight spoke on "Live Stock Diseases" and H. E."Upton on "Poul  try Raising." Dr. Knight is the  chief provincial veterinary inspector,  and he told of the ailments so common among livestock. From the  interest taken in his remarks, it was  evident that- he told his audience  many things about the proper care  and attention needed when ailments and diseases affect the livestock. IVr. Upton, the poultry instructor, talked on poultry matters,  He has bad many years' experience  and is an authority on this phase of  agriculture. His address proved of  great interest to the poultrymen of  the valley. At the close of the meeting the speakers were tendered a  hearty vote of thanks.  The  meetings   were  timely ��������� and  proved a great success both from the  attendance and the interest taken in  them. Everywhere one hears, and  particularly the man on the land,  that greater production is necessary  if we are to lower the cost of living.  The frmers of the empire are asked  to put forth every effort to produce  increased production. That the agri  turahsts of this district will do their  share, there is no doubt. Perhaps,  though, some of them are not as  familiar with some phases of farming and fruit growing as they  should like to be, and it was for tbe  .purpose of helping them to overcome their difficulties that the department of agriculture arranged  the above .meetings.  VALUABLE  A Shipment of 52 ^Tons- Returns a Gross "Value  of $2165  DEMANDS OF 00AL  MINERS REFUSED  BY OPERATORS  Calgary, March 7.���������At'the first  joint meeting of miners and v operators, held here yesterday afternoon,  the miners, after the preliminary  business of organization had been  dealt with, .presented the following  demands as a basis for renewal of  the agreement:  1. Changes in'general clauses as  embodied in the existing agreement.  2. General increase of 25 per cent  on all rates, together with adjustment of inequalities.  3 Eight hour day for all classes  of labor.  4.- All coal to be paid for on run-  of-miue basis.  5. A differential to be.paid where  blasting is prohibited.  6. Extra pay for double and treble  shifts, Sunday  overtime  and   boli  days.  7. Agreement  to  expire August  31, .1918.,,;.."���������"  The meeting adjourned to  enable  the operatorsto consider   these de  mands, to meet again at- 2   o'clock  this afternoon.  Calgary, March 8.���������The demands formulated by the coal  miners and presented yesterday to  the operators in session here, have  been refused by the operators The  latter's representatives have stated  emphatically that they would consider no demands from the miners  until thedattergave some .tangible  promise that any agreements enter  ed into would not be violated  Secretary Carter of the mine workers' organization, who, with their  oth**r representatives, are in the  city, refuse to make any statement  as to what they will do.

K. mine, located on Kru-  ger mountain, a short distance north  of Oroville, Wash., shipped a carload of ore recently. The following'  reference to the shipment is from  the Oroville Gazette:  Last   week  Fred  Neil  and Jack  Gormerly, joint lessees of the 0. K.  mine, shipped to the Granby  smelter at Grand Forks the  most  valuable car of ore that   has  ever  been  mined and shipped out of this  part  of the country.    It was the second  carload shipped to the smelter from  the 0. K.    The returns on the first  car were*very encouraging, but this  last car goes  the   initial   shipment  severol hundred dollars better. Ship  ments will be continued as  rapidly  as the ore can be extricated, hauled  to the railroad and loaded, for there  is plenty more of the same kind  of  ore in sight where the work   of   ex  traction'  is   in progress.    This last  shipment embraced  52  tons.    The  assay returns from the smelter show  that the  ore carried copper to the  value of 837.80, silver to the value  of S3.19, gold to the value of $1 SO,  with an approximate gross value for  the whole car of ������2165.    From that  amount is  to be deducted the cost  of extraction, royalty, hauling to the  railroad,freight and smelter charges,  which leaves  for  the operators the  snug sum of 81500.    It can  readily  be seen from this return that 'a few  carloads   of   such   ore  per .month  would soon place the operators 'and  owner in comfortable circumstances.  MANKIND TO BE  MADE TO MEASURE  Scientists at the University of  California have discovered the substance that produces growth in the  human body, it was announced last  Friday. Tetbelin is what they call  it; it is located in the pituitary body  at the base of the brain and, by retarding or accelerating its functions,  it may be possible, according to the  Berkeley scientists, to control the  stature of human beings. The discovery was made by Dr T. B.  Robertson after experiments lasting  four years.  CUSTOMS RECEIPTS  R. R.

If-you are not fit to fight in  tlie trenches, you can show your patriotism by  cultivating a piece of land. In either case  you will be serving your country.

On Sunday they swear allegiance to the cause  of righteousness, and on Monday they wink a  knowing eye, and on   Tuesday  they "vote 'er  siraight" for the good of the party, regardless  of the character of the men they may be compelled to endorse.���������Successful -Farming  Eng'r ThoB.

Speaking Easily and  Directly Into the  Telephone  Even telephone men of long experience are  surprised at the greater voice distinctness when  speaking directly into the telephone. When  you speak directly into the telephone,'a lower  tone of voice can be used, and your friend can  hear easily.  Moreover, when you speak lower the actual  tone qualities of "your voice are transmitted.  When you speak loudly, you unconsciously  adopt an unnatural tone of voice, with the re-,  suit that much of that intimacy that should be  associated with face-to-face conversation is  lost.
