Independent Shippers at
theH Mercy of Fly-by-
NightCommission Men.
Apples Stored Insufficient to Tak Care of
Market Until May
At the recent convention of the
British Columbia Fjuit Growers' association J. A. Grant, prairie markets
commissioner, gave the  following ad-
' dress on the 1025 praire mnrket:
The season st irte.l with   hot house
tomatoas    and   cucnmbers,    though
rhubard was well sold   afid   with   it,
for thb first time, came   British   Go's
umbia head lettuce and   cauliflower.
The head lettuce was soft in comparison with   cometirive   stuff,  but   the
cinHflower   was of excellent quality.
Strawberries were  next, and  it  was
apparent that the supply   wou'd   be
soarce   and  that   high  prices wou'd
rule if seasonable   weather  permitted
the  berries   to arrive in good condition.    Windle sent in tbe best pack,
closely followed by Saanich and Gordon   Head     Both    these    districts
shipped in car lots and left the  markets in Alberta to the I.e.I. and  con-!
signments    In   many   cases car lot;
stuff netted $1 more than I.e. 1..chiefly1
because the carlot stuff met the legit i
mate competition   from   the United
States, while the 1.0.1, met tlie internal competition from shipments made
on  consignment.    Raspberries   sold
more speedily and in greater  volume '
than usual, due to tbe fact that straw
berries were insufficient  to go round.'
Taking thi berry season ae a  whole,i
good prices were realized.    Loganber- j
ries were in better demand and in less]
supply. Gooseberries, as usual,   were)
a drug on the market
At the beginning of every berry
season an annual orop of shoe-string
jobbers and commission men await
the chauce to handle a portion of the
I.e. 1.Jberry shipments rolling in from
unorganized shippers. Some of them
are old hands, and succeed in getting
supplies through advertisements
placed in British Columbia papers.
For the purpose of protecting shippers
against firms not financially sound
recommendations have been made to
the Canadian Horticultural Council
from both British Columbia shippers
and prairie jobbers that tbey seek
from the federal goveanment legisla
tion compelling all jobbers and commission men to take out a federal
bond, but foj some reason not made
known no suoh legislation has been
enacted. The unwary shippers are
oomp etely at the mercy ofthe fly by-
night commission men.   We  know of
. *x**ny losBes through using such men
in selling produce—more this year
than formerly. We de not know of
any loas in dealing with legitimate
jobbers in ten years' experience.
Cherries—Bings, Lamberts and
Royal Ann—sold well. Very few
Washington or Oregon cherries catno
on the market, and the southern British Columbia cherries were reudy as
soon as those from Washington points
Bings and Lamberts retailed at 40c a
pound most of the lime, and Royal
Anns that carried witluut bruises
sold at 25c. Kootenay cherries were
in great demand and were of the
usual good quality. Many were sent
on consignment to Calgary and had
the effect of lowering the price.
There waB uo warrant for this, as no
other cherries were on the market at
the time and the demand was in ex
cess of the supply.
Selling agents from Yakima and
Wenatehee, owing to the impression
on the prairies that British Columbia
plums, peaches, apricots and prunes
were a short orop, got into the market, with the result that when the
British Columbia stuff arrived there
was no place to put it, with the result that prices dropped and many
jobbbers them holding took a bump.
British Columbia had twenty cars of

opinion was xiven that in their season
hereafter no imported cantaloupes

Eariy Wealthies wern so'd r.n the
green side, and this plan lias much to
recommend it on the prmrie market,
but this doe? not apply to those
shipped to Great Britain The apple
deal now centers around the Mtln
tosh apple. It is the popular variety
and others have to radiate around
the price set on it
A great volume of app'es went into
consumption early at go*d prices.
Bulk stuff was bought liy jobbujs and
repacked at poiut of dolivery. There
was greater rivalry among jobbers on
the apple deal this year than we ever
witnessed before and they worked on
a small margin of profit. Some independent shippers who were independent of the independtnt organization
found it difficult to dispose of their
few cars. Some had to consigti to
commission men or take lower than
the market prico.
At the time of writing (January)
it looks as though we had not sullies
ient British Columbia apples! stored
to take care ol the prairie market
until May, aud, as usual, the balance
needed will be imported from Wash

With even greater comforts on board the palatial
ocean liners than any to be had on shore it is not surprising that cruising has seized the popular fancy. This
year many will avail themselves of the opportunity of
making the Round the World Cruise on the Canadian
Pacific liner, Empress of Scotland.
The liner leaves New York on December 3 and returns
April 10 via the Panama Canal after viditing over 20
countries en route, including 26 ports of call, and arri vine
in the Holyland on Christmas Day.    Cruise membei-i

a joint contract entered into by the
Canadian Pacific Railway, the Overseas Settlement Committee and the
Scottish Immigrant Aid Society.
The railway has purchased the land
and the Scottish Immigrant Aid
Society is to secure the immigrants.
According to G. A. Harcourt,
Secretary of the Soldiers' Rehabilitation Committee at Montreal, fine
work has been done in the placing
of many returned men in good positions. There are still about 800
returned soldiers, married and living
in Montreal, who are out of work,

The city fathers ofParis have hit upon a
grandiose scheme to relieve the congestion in
the streets, Pierre Van Paassen relates in the
Atlanta Constitution. They figure that there
is still plenty of room underground. Of course
the idea is not quite new, for Paris has a per
feet subway service. Under an eighth of the
area under the city, however, is a great hollowed spac^.    This was once a quarry, but in

are not warranted. Itis true that weather
conditions and unstable markers have robbed
the farmers of this valley of their labor for
a couple of years. But the weather has been
abnormal, and the markets can be stabilized
and marketing methods improved, and instead
of giving away to discouragement the farmers
should renew their efforts to overcome their
difficulties. This may require some hard
work—for some of them probably as hard as
the early settlers of Canada had to do when
they liberally hewed their homes out of the
forests. But in the end they will win. The
land in the world is not inctvislng, but tiie
population is. Two or three years of good
crops and favorable markets will bring lai d
values in the Grand Forks irrigated district
up to from five hundred to a thousand dollars
per acre.
There has been a further readjustment of
the daily press iu Vancouvar during'.the past
week. The Morning Star is now the exclusive breakfast-table newspaper in British Coi
umbia's metropolis, while the evening field is
•erved by the Evening Sun and the Daily
Province. This leaves the Terminal City with
three dailies, whicb should be enough for th
• est few years. While the Morning Sun will
undoubtedly be missed, it is perhaps more iu
une with Nature that the city should have
only one Sun and one Star than twoSuus and
uae Star.
While talking about the newspaper game,
ic may not be amiss to inform ihe public that

Below.—One of the peaks, recently aculed for the firat
time In history.
Five peaks in the Canadian Rockies have juat been conquered for the first time by three Harvard and Hotchkiss students who were accompanied by their Swiss
guides. The students who climbed and named the new
peaks in the famous Columbia ice field are Osgood Field,
Frederick Field and Lemond Harris of Boston. They
were led by the noted Canadian Pacific Railway guide
Edward Fuez, the oldest guide in point of service in the
Canadian rockies. Two of the newly conquered peaks
have been named Mount Harvard and Mount Hotchkiss
after the two American universities.
The party made five first ascents including the hitherto
unconquered Mount Patterson, 10,400 feet, Mount Sir
James Outram 10,700 feet, the South Twin. 10.60C feet
and the unnamed peaks, Havard and Hotchkiss. Besides
all this they discovered a new route to the top of the
second highest peak in the Rockies, Mount Columbia,
12,000 feet, which was made in a return journey of
twenty-three hours. The aim of the exploring party, to
conquer tho South Twin, was successfully attained.

field. Their progress was halted several times by the
terrific winds from the ice fields and once they were
forced to halt a day at Mistayah lake in order to make
rafts with which to get their horses across. Here, at the
foot of Mount Patterson, they put up a bivouac camp and
accompanied by the weird howling of the wild ice winds ol
this district spent most of their night thrubbing a ukelele
and singing warm southern songs.
Lemonde Harris had his own Swiss guide with him,
Joseph.Biner who has guided him for many years in the
Swiss Alps. Edward Fuez who has been guiding in the
Canadian Rockies since 1903 was the man who successfully manouvered this valuable expedition. The greatest
novelty of the trip, he stated on his return, was t))e

Interesting Announcement
Word comes from Montreal tba
that great family and farm paper
ihe Family Herald aud Weakly Star
has been enabled to reduce its sub-
sorption price to Ooe Dollar a year.
This certainly will be interesting
oewe in every Canadian home where
the Family Herald is known and to
many wbo will avail themselves of
the offer. At two Dollars a year
The Family Her-ld aod Weekly
Star was generally admitted to be
good value, in fact big value, but
w! en reduced to One Dollar a year
it will certaioly be tbe marvel of
the newspaper world.
Canada is proud of thit gra a
Weekly, and has every reason to be
bo, as it has no superior and few
equals in tbe world today. Tbe
publishers anuouuee that notwithstanding the change io price evary
feature will not uly be maintained
but improvements will follow. Tbe
publishers are fortunate in being in
an financial position to do thie, aod
Canadian homes will have tbe ad-
VHntage. When tbe new rate is
ade known it certainly will bring
rush of subscribers to th Family
,'erald. Ooe Dollar is a small
nount for such a great paper.
