Southern Expert Comes
Out Strongly Against
Any Union With the
Shippinglnterests. Predicts Formaton of Big
Growers'   Organization
It was unfortunate., that Aaron
Sapiro, tbe well known California
cooperative organizer, did not get a
cbance to visit our oity while he waa ally    hot    able
in the province last week. The'next
beet thing tbat we can do to set hie
views before tbe local growers is to
quote liberally irom his speech at
1'euticton Friday night, as reported
in the Herald of that city:
Aaron Sapiro's message to the
fruit growers of Penticton was presented here last night in the Senator
Shatford Bcho 1 auditorium. Probably 750 persons heard the magnetic
Californian tell his Btory of tbe great
struggle waged for cooperation in
the southern Coast state—a battle
which after many years of experimental failure brought the farmers
to a state of permanent ptoipcrlty
and made rural California a model
for other producing districts of
North America.
Mr. Sapiro is a lawyer and acts as
counsel for many of the cooperative
organizations of California and, indeed, for some of tbe newly organized bodies of otber sections of the
United Stages. A man of virile and
forceful personality, close knowi-.
edge of production and marketing
conditions, and with splendid platform ability, he makes a wonderful
sales talk for cooperation. It is not
exaggeration to say that, talking
figures about selling oranges and
lemons and apples aud tobacco and
raisins, be simply thrilled his audi
ence last nigbt. Those who heard
him were convinced when he concluded, not only of the importance
of his message and the soundness of
his program but of the privilege tbey
had been given if listening to a
speaker wbo combined a grasp of
his subject witb an ability for elo
quence of portrayal.
Like Dr. Macklin, tbe more academic student of cooperation, who
was the northern end of the valley
a few weeks ago, tbe Californian
condemned the board, of control idea
He was strongly in favor of a simun
pure marketing organization, containing no element but that of the
producers. To attempt to link up
tbe farmers witb tbe shippers in one
organization for marketing purposes
would be fatal, he peclared. It was
like the lion and the lamb lying
down together. The poor little lamb
would eventually wake up to dud
itself in the lion's belly.
"You are facing a real crisis here,"
he said. |'You have had a sort of
split system, partly cooperative and
partly shipping tbrough consign
ment. California was in the same
way for many years, and I imagine
that you will solve your difficulties
in the same way they   met theirs."
He prophosied that within sixty
days tbe Okauagau would be organized tSO or 90 per cent, taking tbe
_O.U.G. into a large cooperative.
Tbe speaker pointed out that cooperative marketing originated iu
Europe and reached its peak in Ben-
mark, where the farm population
wns more prosperous than anywhere
else   iu  the  world.   California at
tempted to follow Denmark, but
found that the Danish system would
not work on this continent. The
situation wus desperate by 1892, for
the growers found that despite good
prices paid i,y the consumers, tbey
themselves were getting Utile oi
nothing and had to slap mortgages
on their properties, wuereas wben
tbey originally bought in California
they expected that all that wasneces
sary was to plant their orchards and
groves and then watch the money
roll in.'
As a matter of actual fact out of
every dollar spent ou fruit at that
time the grower got 8 cents. Today
in California he receives 48 cents oo
the saine.dollar without extra ex»
pense tu tbo consumer on that account.
The shippers had quoted the old
law of supply and  demand  to   the
growers as an explanation for  poor
prices, but the producers were natur
to     understand
why everyone who touched their
products enroute to the consumer
made money, but the growers themselves were going behind.
"But wben the Danis and other
cooperative experiments failed iu
California, did the growers throw
bricks at the cooperative, as I have
aeen farmers doing within the past
few days?" he ..asked. "Ihey did
not. They said that tbe Danes had
made a go of it in Denmark, and
therefore the Californians would
make a success of it io California.
They consulted year after year witb
bankers and merchants, for mind
you the bankers and merchants are
naturally more anxious to see tbt
farmers prospeiuus than to have tbe
few shippers wealthy at the exn
pense of the growers. It took twelve
years of losses for us to find out al!
our weaknesses, but the Californian
growers had made up their minds
and it wae 'good nigbt' for tbe speculative shipper and the consignment evil."
Mr. Sapiro pointed olit that California was not organized geographically* the organizing was done by
Tbe shippers had advised one
year contracts, but it was found
that these were not satisfactory. Too
many shippers would get a few
growers to keep away from the co
operative. These men tfould be
given fancy prices. Then, the one-
year contract being up, some of the
cooperative growers would 'tall
for" the fenny prices received by
tbose shipping through the private
firms and would drop out. Eventually the shippers, having captured
enough of tbe growers, would
slaughter them all and get back tbe
money used to give the fancy prices
to the originals. The geographica
organizations had been t'ropped because of tbe fondness of the shippers for getting one district to bid
against another.
Commodity organization,with enforceable long-term contracts, had
been found necessary to solve tbis
situation. Tbere was never any fail
ure after that. By 1901 the produo-
ers bad learned to build up strong
cooperative organizations through
the guidance ofthe bankers, the, wisdom and experience of the merchants, and tbe perseverance of the
farmers. The growers did not go
into the cooperative with their fingers crossed. Tbey made it a whole-
souled proposition. Now, iu California tbey bad 22 commodity associations bundling from 260 to 300
million worth of produce every
year. Since .1910 tbey had sent out
two billion dollars worth of farm
produce. Even in the bad year of
1920 in the States, 80 per cent of
tbe Californian farmers made a
profit. The result was that the tobacco growers, wheat growers, cotton, bean and rice growers were or-!

"What are you seeking for?"
"To see what town we can argue in after Lau
ganizing under the California plan.
On December 15 last the speaker
attended a meeting in Washington,
he said, at which 240 men represented 890,000 signed up growers of
various produce, amounting to fl,-
200,000,000 in annual value.
•'It is nit an experiment with us
now. You could have observed ns
only you won't open your eyes, Cooperative marketing has changed
Cahtornia completely. VVe have
learned tbree important things.
First, find out what you are trying
to do^then build a suitable machine to do it, and then get the
proper man to drive the machine"
He urged bis hearers to stop
dumping fruit. He pictured a situation where the growers were all
shoving their fruit unto the shippers
and the latter were offering it to the
buyers iu Calgary, Edmonton and
otber cities. Tho growers were being made.to compete one aguinst the
otber, with the result that the jobbers sat ba'k till the market was
hammered down to little or nothing
Apples of one producer cut down
the price for the otber growers,
when tbere sbould be no snch a
thing as competition between growers of the same commodity.
Mr. Sapiro ontlined six merchandising steps which he said only cooperative groups could take. Tbe
first was to improve grade, standardize brands, give .specific names
and improve quality. In this connection he gave some interesting
details in relation to the handling
ot.Petaluma eggs and Sunkist oranges, showing that these brands
dominated their field, because thgy
could be relied on and the cooperative stood behinli tbem.
Tbe second step was to have the
right package. The speakers said he
did not think the Okanagan needed
much advice in the matter of pack.
The third step was to extend the
market in tho matter of time, place
aud intensiiy in the use of tbe product. There was no need to listen to
tbe shipper, who said the prairie
was tbe only market andEdmonton,
Calgary and Hegina the cities to
which to ship. The shipper made
money off the producer in any
event, sojbe did not need to bother
about finding new markets. Sunkist
California oranges were sold ip practically every town and city, in
every state aud province, except
Florida. New markets were constantly sought.
"I waB in Toronto recently, and
visited ten stores handling apples,"
he went on. "In seven of them the
only apples for sale came from
Washinglon and Oregon In the
other three I could get Ontario  ap
ples and one of these three also bad
apples from British Columbia, What
about your market? Why, we in the
States can't begin to touch Mcintosh Keds, and ynu have several
varieties which are just as good as
anything we have, Why should
California sell apples in Australia
in a market which is sentimentally
and industrially yours! Our farmers
will find markets of their own and
don't have to get ihem at your expense.
"Wby are you only sending no-
pies to three cities in the States—
New York, Boston and Chicago?
There are hundreds of other good
cities, and New York is by no
means the,best.
"London is a marvelous market
for apples, but you send comparatively few there, and these you
dump unto some jobber instead of
sending to your own agent.
"You have a market for your apples in every mouth on the North
American contin?nt that can fit
itself io bite into an apple"
Wbile the speaker was prepared
to urge that early apples be rnshed
to the nriarket, he thought that there
shouid be considerable storing of
ater varieties.
He urged the plentiful use of ud-
vesttsiug so that every Canadian
conld bc induced to eat an apple
first thing in the morning, another
for breakfast, one for lunch, one for
dinner, and one the last thin^at
night. They would gradually start
saying, "Every day, in every way,
1 am getting applier and applier."
The fourth step was to gel people
to use the product constantly, The
raisin growers in 1912 were sending
out forty million pounne of raisins
und getting a return of a cent ami a
quarter a pound. These raisins were
principally for Thanksgiving,Christmas and New Year's. Out by showing new uses for raisins, also putting
them up in 5 cent packages, advertising them aeSunsweet raisins, get»
ting »hem into bread, usine plenty
of newspaper and magazine space to
persuade the public of the food
value of the raisin the growers raised
their shipments to 240 million
pounds in 1918. Raisins were no
longer a luxury but a necessity. And
even with this greater consumption
tbe growers made a greater return
per pound.
"These poople spend four million
dollars a year in advertising. They
aro Veal merchants. They tell the
world, not each other.
"That is what we do in California.
Wo create a consumer demand and
we don't have to monkey with tho
possible to have the Okanagan organized in sixty days along real cooperative linos and with 90 por cent of
the growers signed up. Then if the
growers plastered \he newspapers in
consuming districts with their advertising, it was a certainty thc wheat
fanners, for instance, would give
them support so long as good apples
wore furnished and the buyers could
get them at fair prices.
The fifth step in merchandising
was to learn how to route the frui}
so us to prevent glutting in one place
and famive in enother. A real trallic
manager would bo needed—a man
who would get tho cars when needed
and send them,whore tliey sliould go;
who would have power-to divert Ihem
from one place to another so as to
prevett too many rolling into any
one section.
The sixth step was to make the
price depend on tlie supply at the
consuming points instead of on the
supply at the producing points. That
principle meant the whole difference
between prosperity and poverty.
When the Okanagan was full of apples it should think not in terms of
its own quaintity, but in terms of the
quantity at the points of consumption,
Having decided what they wanted
to do, which was to merchandize
their fruit, the growers mnst next
consider the matter of technique, or
the building of the machine. Cooper
atiae organization must be by coin
mod ity, not by geography. Locals
should be formed to receive instructions in grade and pack. The marketing organization sbauld be a regularly
incorporated association .containing
farmers only. There should be no
combination with shippers nor should
thero be any idea of a monopoly for
the purpose of "soaking" anyone- as
to price. It would bo good business
to havo storage or paoking house
ownership under a separate company
with partiai ownorship by townspeople, but the marketing association
should be quite sepneate, for growers
only, and with one man one vote.
Directors should bo chosen by districts and should be on the job with
frequent meetings, onco, twice or
three "times a week. The maikot or
ganization must be non-profit taking,
It should not monkey with buying
implements, etc., but should confine
its attention to selling the   farmer's
Aldermanic Hoard Same
as Last Year With Exception of Aid. Schnitter, Whose Place Is
Taken by W. Liddicoat
After one of the most keenly contested civic elections in the history
ot the city the end came last night
with Ihe return of the old council,
with the exception of one of tbe aid-
ermen — Mr. Scbnitter, who is supplanted on the board by Wui. Liddicoat. The campaign was carried
on in a friendly spirit,and theae were
no soreheads last night when the
vote was announced. Nearly every
available vote in the city was polled..

Mr. Sapiro considered that if the
Okanagan   fruit ranchers organized
properly they could handle the ipit's
lion this year and capital could be
obtained for them to provide plenty
of packing house accommodation if
it is not possible to obtain that already existing.

The citizens who listened Lo the statement
of the city's financial standing, in the city hall
last Thursday evening, undoubtedly indulged
in some train of thought. It may also be presumed that this thought varied according to
the nature of the person who speculated or
theorized upon the facts presented. To the
majority of those present, it i.s pretty safe to
say that the figures presented conveyed no
other impression than that our municipality
will soon have a strong enough financial rat
ing to embark upon another lionowjng
campaign—to make good'times on borrowed
money, as they generally put it. These people
belong to the class who believe that every
body should "eat, drink and be merry today,
for tomorrow we die." There is no harm in
eating and drinking and being merry if one
has the money to pay for these enjoyments,
but if we saddle the bill for the banquet upon a
generation that is not to appear on the stage
for half a dozen decades yet, the feasting loses
all the virtue that it might otherwise have
possessed. It is like pawning your worldly
goods and squandering the money and then
bequeathing the pawn ticket to a grandchild.
A favorite plea for running municipalities
into debt is, rhat posterity will share in the
benefits of the improvements we make, and
, therefore posterity should boar a portion of
the burden. This line of reasoning held good
it one time, but today it is hardly applicable.
Conditions are changing so rapidly nowadays
that the building that one generation rears is
razed by the succeeding generation to make
room for a more imposing structure. If we
can not build to suit the future generation we
might as well qu t spending its money.
British Columbia Growers'  Organization Committee.--Report No. 3
Vernon January f», lft23.
In its last report your committee stated
it expected to confer with Aaron Sapiro on
the various schemes then before rhe committee.
These schemes were: C ntrol board, central selling, aud cooperative packing and selling. Mr. Sapiro placed himself very fully at
the disposal of the committee on each of the
three days he spent in the valley. He discussed the schemes outl hed, and in accord
with his public statements, he condemned a
board of control as unsound in principle and
unworkable in action. He further condemned
central selling as being merely a partial measure, and unsound unless combined with cooperative packing. On the other hand, he
very strongly recommended the adoption of
cooperative merchandising as being the only
scheme which has successfully solved the
problem connected, with the marketing, of
perishable crops.
In these circumstances, and as ydur com
mittee believes that Mr. Sapiro's recommendation, whieh is in general accord with that
previously given by Dr. Macklin, has met with
the approval of the great majority of the fruit,
growers of the province, it hasdecided that
it will be in the best interests of the growers
to proceed at once t * draw up a scheme for
cooperative marketi g on the lines laid down
by Mr. Sapiro, to the extent of taking preliminary steps necessary to bring such a
scheme into effective operation as soon as
In this work the committee has the advantage of the advice and experience of Mr. Oliver, Mr. Sapiro's partner, who is now in Ver
non in consultation with the committee.
At the same time the committee realizes
that it is desirable to give the growers.through
their accredited representatives, the earliest
possible opportunity of definitely accepting or
rejecting the above plan of cooperative marketing, and' it has therefore decided to lay
this scheme before the grower delegates, who
meet at KelownB on January 20, to decide the
whole question of the future policy of tho industry. F.iE. R. Wollaston, Chairman.
A modest minority of those present at the
meeting may have directed their minds to
wander io another direction. A few years ago
- -thus they probably speculated—our city was
• i dire financial circumstances. Ry the prac
libnv?3r four years of economy, we have arrived at point where daylight is not only iu
plain view but where all danger to the good
mme of the city has vanished. The economy
his nqt been irksome. Everybody have had
about afl the improvements-that they needed.
The taxation Has not been too burdensome.
I'he debt of the city has been reduced by
about one half. The yearly interest charges
have fallen from ten thousand to five thousand
dollars. Why not continue the same policy
fir another four or five years and wipe out the
lebt entirely. The benefits from such course,
its consummation, would be tremendous. The
•tdvertisiag alone that the city would obtain
irom its enviable financial position should be
worth at least ten thousand dollars per annum.
And the money that has in the past gone for
interest on our bonds would give us more im
provements than we have ever had heretofore.
And we would have no sinking fund to keep
up, uo principal to pay back, and we could reduce taxation with a vengeance!
Speculating nn this subject to deeper currents these Utopian dreamers might have pictured a time when our entire|province,the whole
Dominion and all the people in it, would be
free of debt, and no one could lend a dollar
at interest. That would mean that the loafers
who are now living off the interest of the
money bequeated them by their industri ms
grandfathers, fathers or uncles would have to
go to work and earn a living. That would
make us all producers, and the hours of labor
could be reduced as well as the taxes.
One way to keep from becoming a busybody
is to keep a body busy.

Those who knew us iu boyhood
are rarely impressed with our triumphs in mature years. Chauncey
M. Depew, in his recollections tbat
are printed in Scribier's Magazine,
tells an amusing story about the
ate Melville E Ingalls, who as a
railway president had combined and
rehabilited several bankrupt lines.
Ingalls had returned for a rest to
the little Maine village where he
was born and, at the "hot»stove
senate" in the general store an old
farmer said:'
"Melville, they do tell thet ye're
gittin' a salary of nigh onto ten
thousand dollars every year."
Ingalls, who was actually drawing
several times tbat sum, nodded;
whereon the old farmer observed:
"Well, thet jes'shows what luck
■n' cheek kin do fer a feller."
different objects tbat attracted his
attention. Happening to notice a
clump of cranber y vines on the
shore of the lake, he asked^ tbe
man what they were and whether
they were good to eat. ,
"Good to eat? Well, I should say
so". You take tbat little cranberry
and stew him, she makes just as
good apple sauce as prunes."

A Reproof - That   Missed
The young wife entered the
kitchen rather nervously and after
hesitating for a few seconds said to
the cook, "Oh cook, must really
speak to you. My husband is always
complaining about tbe cooking. One
day it is the soup, and the next day
it is the fish, and the third day it is
the roast; in fact, it's always something or otber."
The  cook   replied  with   feeling,

Would Not Be Shuffled Off
An old Scotchman, David Gordon,
was seriously ill and theae was little
hope of his recovery. Relatives had-
wbeedled him into making a will
and had gathered at his bedside Jo
watch him as he laboriously signed
it. He got as far as D-a-v-i and
then fell back exhausted.
"D, Uncle David, d," exhorted
a nephew.
"Dee!" exclaimed tbe old Scot
feebly but witb indignation. "I'll
not dee until I'm ready, ye avaricious wretch."
In tbis old world more feelings
are hurt by bad manners than by
bad intentions.
There are men who gain nothing
from a fortune except the fear of
losing it.

Mr. P. P. Tinker, district freight

)f the year Mr. Tinker takes up the

Chatham, Ont. — "Speed-mania"
has again broken loose in the city
and unless some strong steps are
tuken to eliminate this craze it will
gain a strong foothold in the city,
declared Chief of Police Groves.
A complaint was laid to the police
by the C. P. R. to the effect that an
automobile going south on William
St. at a considerable rate of speed
struck one of the north-sitfe gates
which had just been lowered for an
oncoming train and ' completely
smashed it.
The tower-man, realizing that one
of the touth gates was liable to be
similarly treated by the speeding
motorist, raised these gates at a
considerable speed, being just quick
enough to make a passage for the
speeding motorist. The number of
the car was secured by one of the
local lection crew and turned over
to the police. •
"The driver of the car will be
charged with reckless driving," stated the Chief, fit is high time that
wp take dpdslve steps to prevont
any accidents which can be directly j
traceable to reckless driving"

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob
tained, aro: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide froo Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of suoh unfortunates, who, for the lack of such ser.
vice, perish evory year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the vorious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the ptesant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
lias yot been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened iu New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boajd. While the
Home is to bo located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, su that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expectetl. Cheques should be mado
payable to tho Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
