Defense Will Appeal and
Proseoution May Prefer
FurtherCharges Against
All Accused
Vancouver, March 16 —The vet-
diot of the jury aod sentences passed
by Mr. Justice D. A. McDonald lat>
od Saturday afternoon in the fiuit
conspiracy trial were but the end of
the first phase of the case.
Ao appeal from the conviction will
be entered formally aB soon as defense counsel can get it ready, it wae
announced by A Macltod Sinclair,
chief counsel for tbe defense. Ad
effort will be made to have tbe appeal beard at the present sitting of
tbe British Columbia court of appeal.
Tbe appeal will be resisted, it was
announced by J. C. McRuer, cro /tr>
counsel, and further charges against
all accused, not included in tbe recent trial, may yet be prosecuted on
instructions of the Dominion government.
These oharges, four in number,

trade and under a different section
of tbe criminal code from tbat on
which ihe trial just concluded was
Four individuals, chief officers of
the N ash-Sim'ngton organisation in
western Canada, and four of the
iorty-two companies charged, were
found guilty of conspiracy by tbe
jury, which gave ite verdict s-hottly
after 5:30 Saturday afternoon after
being out nearly thirty hours.
Tbe men adjudged guilty were J,
A. Simington of Minneapolis, formerly a resident of Moose Jew, Winnipeg and other Canadian cities,
president ol Nftsh-Simington, Limited, and general manager of tbe
business in Canada* S. P. Lloyd of
Winnipeg, credit manager of tbe or>
ganisation; William Colquhoun of
Regina, suparintendent for Saskatchewan, and W. E. Carruthers
of Calgary, supervisor for Alberta.

imprisonment and a fine of $25,000.
Tbe four companies found guilty
were Mutual (Vancouver), Limi'ed,
and Mutual Brokers, Limited, of
Calgary, Regina and Winnipeg. All

obvious intent of the jury was to
select the higher officials who v ere
responsible for the gen. ml conduct
of tbe Nash organization and lbe
four companu-s most coucerned in
the transactions oo which lbe crown
based its case. Eaob oompany c >u»

states trat Delicious apples- bave

us tbis item, a subscriberspecnlates
as to how much tbe grower received
in euch a caee.
In view of tbe revelat'ons in the
Duncan report and certain evidence
in the fruit oases now proceeding in
Vancouver, it would  be interesting
to bave a history of tbe transactions
tbat took place between tbe picking
of a Delicious apple and its disappear,
ance as a half-dollar delicacy down
tbe   throat  of  ite final purchaser.
How maoy middlemen shared in tbe
spread between producer and con
eurner, and wbat was the respective
profit to eacb?   How many of them
claimed   tbey    were   making    no
money? How many were in business
merely as philanthropists, bent on
securidg  for tbe grower the lion's
share of tbat 50 cents? All, Dossibly,
by their  own   account.   But tbe
grower is not quite so credulous bb
be used  to be, and if be uses his
eyes aod ears for the purposes for
wbicb these organs   were intended,
not as ornaments only to bis  skull,
he will be still less oredulous when
the   washing' of   dirty linen in the
wholesale fruit trade has come to an
end.   Perhaps tben he will   recognize tbat cooperative markrtiog pro*
vides tbe firm rock of bis sure salvation, his guard and defence against
the malpractices tbat   have   looted

past years; aod that by loyal  union

in the end, no matter what forms of
opposition and treachery blow their

After all, the incident of tbe fifty—
oent apple will create in tbe mind of
the average grower a feeling, not of
av rice and jealonsy of those wbo

tbe consumer so **hamelejsly ex

Legends of the St. Lawrence River in Quebec
J. S. McKinnon
Former president of the Canadian
Manufacturers' association, who, on
his return from a two year sojourn
in London, has started a controversy
by stating that the lack of titles
handicap Canadian business men in
the    nited Kingdom.
Folk tales and legends still cling
to tbe shores of the 9ft Lawrence,
that first highway into the unknown
continent of North America. Legends
in which are mingled bits of Indian
superstition, French customs and
religious beliefs. In tbe time of the
early explorers, those brave men who
dreamed dreams which led then! on
and over the bright waters,' past dark
islands, purple hills' and shining
cliffs, until they settled in Canada,
these legends were reverenced. Now,
however, while large Canadian Pacific
steamships crowded with tourist)
ply up and down the St. Lawrence,
the legends are no longer regarded
except as quaint fairy tales with
somewhat of a religious flavour not to
be disregarded or ridiculed, but to be
enjoyed as reminiscent of the olden
days when saints and demons assumed
mortal forms.
Katherine Hale, in an artistic little
book issued hy the Canadian Pacific
Railway recently, ably depicts many
of these stories. One of the most
familiar of these French Canadian
legends Is that of Loup-Garou,
evidently derived from the German
werewolf or the Irish banshee. Loup-
Garou typifies the French Canadian's
revet-enee f or things spiritual and his
belief in supernatural intervention

One of the most amusing items in Mr. Ba-
lieffs entertaining book is the Wooden Soldiers. "One day," he told me, "I discovered^
volume of Russian legends in a pile of .children's books, in one of which I found a tale of
Czar Paul I. Over one hundred years ago
thi-* powerfnl monarch was reviewing a favorite regiment in St. Petersburg. He gave the
ordar to march, but soon after was called
away on urgent business by a messenger from
the palace. In the old Russian army no officer
could countermand an order given by the
czar. So the soldiers kept on walking, until
they marched out of Russia and arrived at the
Ural mountains. The czar had forgotten his
order, but the faithful soldiers continued to
march. According to the legend they arrived
in Siberia with their arms and legs working
mechanically. And the stiff, gaunt trees in a
forest there today are said to be this regiment
turned into wood."

A Picture of Husbandry
Various the toils which fields so large demand!
We choose the seed; we take our tools in hand.
In winter for our work we thus prepare;
Then in the spring, bearing the sharpened 'share,
We to the acres,-*--} that south incline,
And to the earth the different seeds consign.
Soon, straight and large, upward each plant apires;—
All happens as our noble lord desires.
The plants will ear; within their sheath confined,
The grains will harden, and be good in kind,
Nor darnel these, nor wolf'r tail'graas infests;      •*"
From core and leaf we pick tbe insect pests,
And pick we those that eat the joints and roots;—
So do we guard from harm the growing fruits.
May the great Spirit, whom each farmer names,
Those insects take, aod cast them to the flames I
The olouds o'erspread the sky in masses dense,
And gentle rain down to the earth dispense.
Fir.-t may the pub'ic fields the b easing get,
And then with it our private fields we wet!
Patches of unripe grain the reaper leaves;
And here and ungathcred are the sheeves.
Handfnls tesides we drop upon the ground.
And ears untouched in number lie around;—
These By the poor and widows shall be found.
When wive.* and children to the toilers come,
Bringing provisions from each separate home,
Our lord of long descent shall oft appear;
The Inspector also, glad the men to cheer.
They too shall thank the Spirits of tne air,
With sacrifices pure for all their care;
Now red, now black, the victims thus they slay,
As north or south the sacrifice they pay;
While millet bright the altars always show;—
And we shall thus still greater blessings know.

Pigeons Were Postmen in Old Ragusa
Clock and Custom House Rsfusa.
Seven hundred years ago, the
pigeons of the Free City of Ragusa,
in Dalmatia, were postmen. They
went across all the seas in boats,
travelled with all the caravans, and
knew all the routes of the air which
brought them back to Ragusa.
Like the sailors of Ragusa, they
were known in all the ports of the
world; as a protection, they were
made citizens of the Free City of
Ragusa. Any person molesting or
insulting a pigeon was therefore
guilty of offense against the state,
and was brought before the tribunal.
Homes were built for these pigeons
in the city walls, and the streets and
roof tops were theirs. Every man
who entered at the city gates was
obliged to offer as tribute from his
native town two pigeons. These lived
in wooden cages labeled with the
names of their homes, and gossiped
with the other pigeons until their turn
came to carry out a letter. In this
way, Ragusa enlarged its postal
But the centuries rolled by. Ragusa
lost its freedom. Venice usurped its
powers on the seas. Battleships
steamed up and down the Adriatic.
With the other citizens, the pigeons
lost their rights and were forced to
associate with the sea gulls from
Lacroma, an island to the north,
sometimes suffering the indignity of
begging grain from the birds with
whom in the days of their exclusive
splendour, they would not associate.
Today, the port of Gravosa, Rag-
i-sa's harbor,- is crowded with ships
bearing the new flag of Jugo-Slavia.
Passengers from the Empress of
France, the Canadian Pacific steamship which next year will add Cattaro
and: Gravosa ports on its annual
Mediterranean cruise, will have a
chance to scatter crumbs to the
thousands of cooing pigeons still
crowding Ragusa's streets and adding
to its beauty. The white city, "Bride
of the Sea, some poet has called her,
would be less beautiful if the irri-
descent necks of the pigeons did not
make small splotches of color on the
Potatoes—Por earliest planting,
Early Ohio, Early Rose and Irish
Cobbler are recommended. Main

large sowings sbould be msde

largely into the matter.

For winter storage, Danish Ballhead
or Danish Round Head.
Cauliflower—Nothing belter than

Celery—White Plume recommended for earliest celery, followed
by Golden Self-Blanching. The

Pascal and Evans' Triumph.
Corn    Best results are obtained
with  Pickaninny,   Banting   (both*|
productions of C.E.F., Ottawa,) and

and ior this purpose find tbe best to
be Alacrity, Earliana aod Burbank.
