BE
The meeting of fruit grow-rs in
the opera on Saturday evening was
well attended, although thera might
have been a few more of the leading
fruit growers of the valley present
Mr. Woodland presided and intro
duced tbe speakers.
^A. T. Howe, president of the Associated Growers, jeviewed tbe developments that bad taken place in
fruit marketfng during the past year.
It was a difficult thing to organize
and keep together a cooperative as-
tociation. Farmers were good pro
ducers but poor business mm At the
marketing end. The Associated bad
been criticized lor not giving out
more information during the busy
season. It had really fallen down in
this respect. Tbe association started last year witb practically 80 per
cent of the tonnage. Tbe indepec
dents had spoifed the tail end ofthe
Wealthy market and captured the
first part the Mcintosh mnrket.
One thousand cars more of apples
bad been sold on tbe praire last year
tban in former yeare because of
good distribution by the Associated.
It was the height of folly for us as
fruit growers to compete one against
the other. The best apples produced in Canada were grown in
British Columbia The Associated
had carried into the new year 600
cars of apples, on wbich it paid
storage and repacking expenses The
Associated will have to get 90 or 95
per cent of the tonnage this year or
the organization will blow up.
David McNair, assfstant saies
manager, said tbat the so called in
dependents were really dependants
—of he Associated, because that
organization held tbe umbrella over
them. Orchard acreage had recently changed hands, pntting tbe
tonnage controlled by tbe Associated
below 80 per cent. Wben the Associated was organized something had
been started that had not heen fin
isbed. but it was going to be finished
now. If tbe independent are correct,
get behind them 100 per cent; if tbe
Associated is right, get behind it
100 per cent. The last car of apples was sold last week and the
pools had been closed. British Columbia growers would have all tbe
competition they wanted even
though tbey did their marketing as
a unit Eighty.four per cent of tbe
crop must be -narketed in tbree
mouths' lime. Wby not try to cooperate right jnce before you die-
card the association? It is for you to
make the Associated 100 per cent
strong or 100 per cent weak.
G A. Barrat, of Kelowna, said tbe
independents wanted the Associated
to bold tbe umbrella over them to
protect tbem from the shower. The
future of the fruit growing industry
in British Columbia was bright,
Production of fruit io eastern Canada and in the .United States wsb
decreasing; consumption was increasing, wbile the number oi appie
trees were gradually getting less.
The present trouble was not due to
overproduction, but to faulty marketing methods. The Belling costs
of fruit in tbe Northwest had been
lowered by the Associated To drop
the organization now meant abso<
lute chaos.

selects only candidates fitted by
husinese experience and good judgment—men capable of haudling the
ptihlic'saffair? with the same degree
of success whicb bas marked private
enterprise.
The new legislature of British
Columbia to be chose by the electorate this year will play an impor
lant part in Ibe future of tbe prov
ince and a strong administration is
needed. It will be for the voter to
decide either in favor off an admin
istration whicb bas successfully
carried the province through eight
bard yeare with marked success, or
in favor of leaders whose past rec
ords found them sadly wanting.

Victoria, April 17.—The retires,

of finance, from lbe Oliver governs*

eral public, although it bad been
known by tbe minister's friends tbat
for years he been neglecting private
interests in order to follow the

remain at (he bead of the impor..
tant finance department. It is safe
to say, without prejudice, that John

Tbe voting public qf British Col
t?iia is long-sufferipg and ie not- inclined to jump to conclusions. It
also is one of the saneet voting public in Canada. This is perhaps due
to the fact that the average western
Canadian bas been aggressive and
persevering enougb to launch [out
for himself in a new country and to
make good—a task whicb requires
ratber more than tbe average ability
and commonsense.
Witb tbe Conservative opposition
launching forth into a full-fledged
political campaign—having little
else but hope as a spur—and with
the aspiring but discredited Provincial party bustling madly about
the country in an effort to get into
tbe limelight of public favor, tbe
government, admitting that an elec
tion will be held this year, bas been
forced to take action. Candidates
are being carefully chosen, and
while the paty leaders are slow to
offer advice it is generally accepted
that in this stage of British Columbia's development strong men must
be sent to Victoria. Never before in
the history of the province has there
been so many important administrative tasks to be   handled, and it
Furtbei reductions in freight
rates in the western provinces, is

shipped cheaply from the British
Columbia coast to the prairies before long." Tbcgovernment counssl
is on the coast now and will confer

for greater reductions.

Vernon, April 17.—Many of our
growers can not understand how the
marketing of a small percentage of
the British Columbia fruit ciop in
competition wilh the large termite
handled by the Associated can have
the disastrous effect they are told will
ensue. Nor can they understand why
the man who is charged with cutting
prices and demoralizing the market
almost invariably shows better net
returns than the Associated Growers.
To the grower not acquainted with
market conditions the explanatiou
naturally occurs that the difference
in results is due to inferior salesmanship and merchandising methods.
The true situation can best be explained by using an illustration
We have for the distribution of
B. C. fruit two general markets
—the home market and export Except under abnormal crop conditions
the export market is always tho least
remunerative owing to high transportation costs and cpen competition of
world production. We wili assume
for the purpose of illustration that in
a given season, for a certain variety
and grade, our homo market is willing
to give $1 50, while the same article
will bring only $1.00 in foreign markets.   As we have a surplus of fruit
during   the   summer, wb'.le many  in excess of the domestic  market, it
rural  highways will  be materially
improved

CUTTING DOWN THE OVERHEAD
IN THE OFFING
There ire many indications of a
revival of the mining industry in
this district in the near future.
At Paulson the new company tbat
took over the Inland properly last
fall is working twelve men under
tbe management of Mr. Campbell.
A 30-ton concentrator has been
completed, and it was started last
week and is now in daily operation.
A late report from the camp says
that tbe company bas found some
$50 ore.
In the North Fork district the
Pathfinder mine was incorporated
last week for $200,000 in Grand
Forks and Pullman, Wash. The
opinion seems to be quite general
that tbe property will be worked
tbis summer.
In Franklin camp the Maple Leaf
company is preparing the reorganize, and as soon as this is done it is
the intention of the new company
to start work at the property. Tbere
also seems a likelihood of a deal be
ing made for tbe Union mine, also
in this camp, whereby tbat property
will be placed on the working list.

is obvious that the distribution must
be handled with great care and nig
cretion to prevent glutting at any
point and breaking the market price.
A certain proportion of the whole
must be exported at the risk of lower
results in order to maintain a stable
market at home, and the average results are depended on to produce a
profit.
We cow have a shipper, handling
a comparatively small tonnage, who
is determined to sell ail his holdings
in the best market, and in order to do
so offers the dealer an advantage of
10c, quoting $1.40 in a $1 50 market
What is the Associated to dot If we
try to maintain our price we lose thia
sale and have that much more to export to the $1:00 market and thereby
bring pown our average returns The
other alternative is to meet the cut
and hold the market. This only brings
a still lower quotation and the situation is repeated. It is obvious that
not until the price in the home mar.
ket has been reduced to the level of
the foreign market every sale lost at
home reduces that much more our
average returns below those of the independent shipper.
But is it not also evident that
every grower would receive a better
price for their fruit if all had the
proper average between the $1.50
home market and the $1.00 export
market? This is what an adequate
control of distribution would mean,
and it would still further improve the
situation by incrersing that average.
Obviously the secret of better returns
is to increase consumption in the
highest priced markets. To do this
with any success the market mnst he
stabilized. Brokers, dealers and consumers must have faith in the stability of price*- and the reliability of the
product. Given these conditions, the
consumption of our most remunerative
market can undoubtedly be greatly
increased, and the average returns for
the whole crop materially improved;
but a demoralized market is an enemy to expansion. It curtails distribution. When merehanls lose
faith io tbe stability of a periehable
artiele they will handle only as much
as they are absolutely compelled to do.

Everybody appear to have come to the conclusion  that  we are to have a general election this summer, and where such unanimity
of opinion  prevails some  foundation  for  it
must exist.    In one respect elections are like
wars. Winn tho nations b«gin to prepare  for
war, Mars is hiding somewhere in  the  vicinity; wheii the people start to discuss politics
and  place  their cnlilites in   tha  field, an
election is generally in   the  offing    Whether
the province is going to ba   plnngod into  the
struggle during the dog days of midsummer or
whether the battle will be postponed until next
fall seems to be the only debatable   point
of the question.
articles, but could also sell' Fiemish pipes to
the other countries at a profit. So they started
their new home industry. The Dutch, fearing
the new competitor, endeavored to crush out
| the industry by lowering the price of their
pipes aud actually selling them below cost- in
Flanders. The Flemish retaliated by laying a
prohibitive tax on Dutch pipes to keep them
out.^Thereupon the Dutch loaded a ship with
pipes, sailed it over to Flandgrs and wrecked
it on the coast. The cargo of pipes was washed
ashore and salvaged, of course, by the Flemish. For the next year or Lwo, pipes were a
glut on the market and so ruinously cheap
that the new industry perished. Thus the
Dutch, at the expense of one shipload of pipes,
managed to retain their monopoly.
Small wonder that distribution is recognized as one of the biggest problems in the
matter of food products! A Canadiau instance makes it plain. .Some time ago a merchant in Belleville, Ontario, sold some white-
fish that had been caught at Bath, forty miles
away. Between the time when the fish were
caught and the time when they were sold.they
traveled from Bath to Kingston, thence across
Lake Ontario in bond to a public refrigerator
at Cape Vincent, New York, thence back to
Kingsten, thence to a wholesale dealer in
Toronto, and thence to the Belleville retailer
—a journey of fonr hundred miles to reach a
point forty miles away. Meanwhile the price
had increased from seven to eighteen eents a
pound.
The English bank known as Messrs. Hoare
arid Company, which is mentioned as the one
in which Pepys kept his money  (his  account
was overdrawn  at  the time of his death), is
one of the three oldest banks in London.  Although the bank recently celebrated its 250th
anniversary, 't is run in much the  same   way
as in Pepys' time. Since the beginning it  has
beeu ruled  by the  Hoare  family, eldest son
succeeding eldest son for generations, and the
customs begun by the founders have been adhered to with remarkably  little change.    To
this .day a member  of the house of Hoare
sleeps in one of the bedrooms overlooking the
old-fashioned garden in the rear of the bank
ing house, which is in Fleet street.   Regularly
as clockwork, every morning at 9, he unlocks
the great door of the bank with   a  huge  key.
The  tradition   was  begun in the seventeenth
century, in the days  when  the  stage  coach
could not be depended on to  get the passengers  down  to  business on time, and the custom has been kept up ever since.
China is said to be awakening. If that be
so, it must be just a preliminary yawn and
stretch. A recent returned traveller says:
"Almost all the freight in Tsnanfu, a walled
city of 300,000 inhabitants at the land end
of the Shantung railway, in China, is moved
in wheelbarrows. Some of the loads are thus
conveyed distances of fifteen to twenty miles
a day. Wheelbarrows also handle- passenger
traffic. 'My lady' frequently returns from her
shopping tours with her bundles on one side
and herself on the other. Haifa dozen people
may ride in front of a puffing and perspiring
coolie. The wheel is in the center of the barrow, which aids in balancing the load. If it is
unusually heavy, another man or boy helps to
pull by means of a rope or strap thrown
across his shoulders. In a very few instances
a mule is the assistant, but it requires a man
to lead the mule "

News of the discovery of the ruins of a great
city of the first Mayan empire lying miles inland in the uninhabited jungle',of British Hon
duras, has been received by Lieut. Col. Walter S. Whitman, of Walpole, Mass., from his
son, Edmund S. Whitman, stationed in Honduras. Amid the ruins was one massive pyramid 300 high. The huge stone structure, covering hundreds of acres, date back 3000 years,
according to estimates, Col. Whitman says.
The discovery was made by an expedition
under Professor Mitchell Hedges and Dr.
Gann, operating with Belize, capital of British
Honduras, as a base. The expedition was
under British auspices, backed by a London
syndicate. The ruins are covered with the
Mayan hieroglyphics which for many years
archaeologists have been trying vainly to de
cipher. Most remarkable, according to the
scant information that has reached Col. Whitman, is the size of the great blocks of stone
used in -"he ancient structures. Col. Whitman
says his son has predicted that further dev el-
opments may be expected soon.
A cooperative association that has hatl a
pleasing success is that of the New Hampshire poultrymen. A central plant receives,
grades and markets all the eggs that the members send in. By contracts with grocery stores
in the territory that the association serves,
and by using motor trucks to deliver the eggs
to the Boston market, the association has
greatly reduced the price of handling eggs,
and for its ".Just laid" brand it gets a premium
of seven cents a dozen in excess of current
wholesale  prices for other  near by hennery
According to an eminent naturalist, snakes
have a most peculiar effect on wild turkeys
and when a snake is encountered by a flock,
they behave in a most extraordinary manner.
At the sight ofthe snake, the birds will begin
to dance slowly round it. As the turkeys dance
they lower their wings, raise and spread their
tails and utter a continuous querulous call.
Single birds will sometimes break from the
revolving circle to make frantic slashes at the
snake. If the snake is not too formidable the
flock will probably kill it. Otherwise they
will leave it dazed and deafened by their conduct and noise.

'lhe Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To pt- ivide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the m my of suoh iv-fortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every yo-trj and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with nor.nul, healthy bodies a*nd sound minds."
,» JThis is a large ami greatly needed Cbild Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New Tork 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 ia 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 objeotive of the Boaad. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is sonfidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. • All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged **■*,

President  of  Canadian  Pacific Tells His Officers of  Railway's Efforts in
Nation-Building—The CP.R. and Politics—Good
Wishes for the C.N.R.
silt. t*"y. siAlsy I
Kelt    tf.B
With the exception of the Canadian Parliament
at Ottawa, there
seldom comes to-
gether in this
country a group
of men so thoroughly representative of all Canada as met in the
city of Quebec re-
^Jlcently when 660
^ of the higher officers of the Canadian Pacific Railway gathered for
ono of their periodical conferences.
They came from every part of
Canada and, dealing as they do, with
every phase of Canadian industry and
trade, they represented to a remarkable extent the progress and development which Canada is now enjoying.
The close of the gathering was
marked by a speech from President
E. W. Beatty, which set forth in
illuminating terms the present position of the treat company and something of the lines along which it is
pursuin,; ihe task for which it was
nr3t constructed, namely the building
of a groat Canadian nation.
Mr. Beatty bf»an with a tribute to
the bold enterprising men who, tinder
such leaders as Champlain, and within
sight and sound of the Chateau
Erontt-nac where he was then speaking, h d laid the first foundations of
nationhood. The spirit of Cham-
plain did not die in 1635, he said, it
carried on through the centuries,
cleared the forests, tilled the land,
founded cities, established routes of
trade and commerce, constructed
railways and steamships and was
today seen wherever Canadian men
and women were at the work of
nation-building. It was this spirit
that had built the Canadian Pacific.
Mr. Bci-tty's utterance on the
matter of politics was as frank as it
•nm important.   He said:
"Every Canadian is naturally concerned with national politics, whether
they emanate from one political party
or another, and the Company because
of its tremendous stake in tne Country and the fact that it is a trustee of
hundreds of millions of British, Canadian and American capital, jealously
guards those interests against unfairness or the adoption of any politics
calculated to destroy the integrity of
those investments. When I say tnat,
however I have said all. The company is noa in politics and I would
suggest that it has Httle, if any,
political influence. No officer or
employee of the Company has, in
my recollection, and centainly not in
recent years, been ever asked- or
requested to discharge his franchise
save according to his own belief and
we propose that they shall be left
with that freedom unembarrassed by
our own views or predilections."
Mr. Beatty's reference, to the
national system of railways was
equally frank and timely. He pointed
out the peculiar anomaly that: "The
less profitable are the operations of
the National Railway System the
greater the taxes of the Canadian
Pacific, and if the National Railways
prosper through diversion of traffic
from the Canadian Pacific, we lose in
revenue more than we gain in taxes.
He further said: "We may conclude
that the test of government ownership is being made under as favorable
conditions as can be secured. The
railway mileage of the Country is
proportionately greater than the
traffic available to support it. This
Company has a very real reason to
hope for the success of the National
Railways, provided it is accomplished
without withdrawing from us the
traffic which we have taken so many
years to build up and secure. The
greatest factor which will contribute
to the National Railways' progress is
the development of Canada, the increase in population and the expansion of industries. If, by a happy
combination   of   these   factors   tne
progress of the National Railway!
continues, I, for one, will be very glad
because it will carry with it the
assurance that Canadian Pacific progress will be still greater in the future
than in the past.
The greatness of a railway ia
accurately gauged by the character of
the men it produces. No other institution in the country has produced so
many outstanding men in their
various communities. I speak not
merely of such as Sir William Van
Home and Lord Shaughnessy, I
apeak of hundreds of C.P.R. officers
who have so finely served the Company and the Country. Owing to
these men, the Canadian Pacific has
not been merely a collection of subsidies or a machine for earning
revenues. It has been the dynamic
force in the life and progress of
Canada, settling vacant lands, fostering new industries, developing latent
resources, opening up markets, introducing outside capital, bringing'in
as tourists or immigrants vast armies
of purchasers to consume her produce. -
The C.P.R. man is inspired by the
thought that without the Canadian
Pacific Railway, Confederation would
never have been agreed to in principle, and Would never have been
maintained in actual fact. The
present King of England while Prince
of Wales said: "We all know how the
Canadian Pacific Railway has helped
to make a Nation." That knowledge
accounts more than anything else for
the magnificent record and the
splendid spirit of the officers of this
Company.
Providing our politics are conceived
in wisdom and executed with vigor,
we have the assurance of great
national development and commercial prosperity. All we can expect is
the privilege of contributing to and
sharing in the development, because
we are Canadians, and because the
future of this Company is inextricably
connected with the future of our
great Dominion."

THE HOODOOS, JASPER NATIONAL PARK
JASPER PARK LODGE, in Jasper National Park, Alberta, is
ideally situated as a convenient
center from which to climb mountains, traverse trails and motor
roads, or embark on fishing and
hunting expeditions; while golf,
tennis, boating and bathing are
right at its door.
For those who have just a short
time to spend in tho Park there are
miles and miles of motor roads
through winding valleys and up
mountain grades, along the shores
of swift rivers and past quiet lakes,
to mountain, glacier and canyon.
_ • Towering above all other peaks
in the vicinity is stately Mount
Edith Cavell, its crown of snow
reaching a height of 11,033 feet.
From Jasper or the Lodge Mount
Edith Cavell is in full view, but it
is only by travelling the eighteen
miles to Lake Cavell, nestling at
the foot of the mountain, that one
can really see all the wonders of
this now famous mountain named
for that Heroic British nurse, Edith
Cavell, heroine of the Great War.
The peculiar formation of a glacier on the side of Mount Edith Cavell adds to the interest of the
•place. In a cirque" between the
mountain and the shoulder extending to the north iB a hanging glacier covering about a third of a
square mile. An ice fall about
three hundred feet wide connects
this with another glacier five hundred feet below, the irregular
shape of which extends along the
foot of the cliffs for more than a
mile. This mass of ice presents
the form of aa angel with   out
stretched wings and has been aptly
named "Glacier of the Ghost." At
another point on the mountain a
combination of rock and snow
forms what appears to be a side
view of the head of a turbanned
oriental knight. In photographs
taken from Chak Peak this formation is plainly discernible.
The road to Mount Cavell is
along the valley of the Athabasca
River, across the turbulent Miette
River, Whistlers and Portal creeks,
continuing across the historical
Astoria River, which it follows in
a southwest direction at the same
time climbing the lower slopes of
the mountain and finally reaching
the shores of Lake Cavell. Many
stops should be made en route to
view such interesting features as
the natural hoodoos with their flat
stone hats just along the slope be'
low the road.
Half an hour by motor from Jasper Park Lodge, with mirror-like
lakes reflecting the ragged outline
of forest and mountain for mile
posts, brings one to Maligna Canyon. The scenery along this gradually ascending and winding roadway is unsurpassable. Skirting
-innumerable little lakes, each of a
different hue from the light yellow
of Ochre Lake to the opal-like
coloring of Lake Edith with its
sandy beach for bathing, the road
winds round above the Athabasca
Valley and thence to Maligne River
close to the Canyon.
Following the rocky path of the
Maligne River for a short distance
one comes to the mouth of the
canyon through which great rushes
of water have been passing for
many hundreds of years wearing
away the rocks to a depth of two
hundred feet in places. The canyon is a mile and a half long and is
so narrow and irregular that in
many places it la impossible to see
the river flowing along far below.
The water enters this huge crevice
with a fall of seventy-five feet and
goes tumbling tbrough with •
sullen roar.
Along the sides of the canyon
are huge pot-holes, testifying to the
velocity of the water and its erosive quality during the centuries.
Near the top are great dents in the
rock worn smooth and now covered
with moss, and on shelves of rock
fifty feet or so below the surface
are evergreens fighting for life
with barely a foothold in the rock.
Plainly discernible from the rustic bridges built across the canyon so that the falls and river below may be viewed with safety, are
stretches of rock wall beautifully
vari-colored, and where the river
cannot be seen in the dark cavern
below it sends its rumbling message to the top.
The mystery of Medicine Lake
and the subterranean stream that
joins the river below Maligne Canyon is intensely interesting and
the rock formation around the
lake is well worth the journey of
ten miles from the Canyon to see.
Canada's most northerly national
park is fast becoming one of the
most popular playgrounds of the
Dominion and every tourist who
visits there becomes an ardent advertiser.
