Sales Manager andOrgan-
izer for O.U.G. Address
Meeting of Local Fruit
Growers
Mr. Lowe, sales manager of the
Okanagan United Growers, and Mr.
Barnes, president of the British-
Columbia Fruit Growers' association, addies«ed a large meeting of
ranchers and townspeople in the
Empress theater on Wednesday
evening.    '
Mr. Lowe's time on the platform
wss mainly taken up with tbe disposal of interrogation points. The
questions put to him by tbe audi
ence covered about every phase of
tbe fruit marketing problem, and,
the manner in wbicb they were answered conveyed tbe impression
that Mr.  Lowe is a gqpd politician
as well as a salesman.
Mr. Barnes' address was, to a
large extent, a repetition of what he
told a Grand Forks audience oo a
former occasion. He laid particular
stress on the importance of cooperation, and made the positive
statement that if tbe Grand Forks
growers decided to come in with the
OU.G. tbey would have to sign tbe
five-year contract,
A well known rancher is authority for the statement that nearly all
of the growers in the valley have
now signed tbe five year contract.

nor extreme temperatures aie expected. Rainfall and temperatures
will be near the normal. Goou and
fmproving crop weather are ex
pjcted conditions for tbe conditions
for tbe continent as a general aver

The great high temperature wave
will be important, as it will force

Hunter's Remarkable Trophy
Card of Thanks
I wish to take tbis method of
tendering my sincerest thanks to my
friends and tbe citizens general y for
the many kindnesses extended to
me and my family during the late
illness and at tbe death of my
mother. Mrs. O. G. Dunn.
Head of Bighorn or Rocky   Mountain Sheep   secured laat
October near Lake Louise, Alberta.   This is one of the
finest and largest heads ever secured.
Reason governs tbe wise man,but
Smith, tae cudgel « fool.
The Western provinces of Canada
are famous as resorts of big game.
Many kinds are to be found, but
amongst the most sought are bighorn or Rocky Mountain sheep. The
hunters that get a bighorn procure
a handsome trophy in the horns. It
is said that the biggest and best bighorn heads are to be found In the
Rockies. Last October a party of
hunters under the leadership of
James Simpson, well known Bsnff
guide and hunting outfitter started
out from Lake Louise. They hunted
through Clearwater, Sheep Creek,
and the Saskatchewan River. Many
bighorn and wild goats were seen,
and amongst the trophies secured
-was a head with a base 16 .inches
mitia, a left horn 47% in-phea, aod
a right horn 49 inches. The animal
weighed 350 lbs. There were twelve
bighorn in the group from which
this remarkable specimen was taken,
and two of the others looked Just *
as large. •.
Bighorn are very much afraid of
men, and they make their haunts ia
the most secluded places. Some
good hunting districts art tha southern parts of British Columbia, East
Kootenay Mountains, Okanagan district, Valley of the Bridge and Chil-
cotln Rivers, the Cassiar country.
East Kootenay is one of the most
favored districts, and hunters set out
from Golden, Invermere, Michel,
Fernie and Cranbrook, all of whicb
are on the C. P. ft. .      •

City Officials Stake a
Right in Name of City
on a New Creek Near
the Reservoir
Mayor Hull aod Aid, Scbnitter,
chairman of the water and ligbt committee, witb Chas. Mix as guide, tbis
week inspected a new creek* on the
mountain north of town and staked a
water right in the name of the city.
Mr. Hull says thaUthe creek has an
ample flow of water and that it can
be easily diverted either into Mill
creek or into the city reservoir. If
the Granby company decides to re
inquish its right on Mill creek the
two streams can be united, he says,
and an ample supply of water obtained botb for city purposes and
for irrigating tbe bench; but if tbe
Granby acts otherwise, tbe new
creek can be run direct into the
reservoir.

decided upon, but a convention to

The Vanoouver by-election will
oot take place until after that date,
perhaps lato in July or early fall.
The Vancouver situation is pnzzling
the government not a little and if
the seat is to be retained a bard
fight will bave to be put up. O. G.
McQeer, K.C. is a probable candi
date,while V. R. MuD. Russell,K.C,
looms as a contender.
S. L. Howe, wbo was defeated last
election is anxious to try conclusions, wbile several of tbe younger
Conservatives are ready to get into
the ring. Col.-*W. W. Foster is regarded as a strong prospect.

FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1922
The theater in America will  be subjected
to the most rigid censorship, and that soon,
unless it institutes immediate, drastic reforms.
Either the theater will cleanse itself, and at
the earliest possible moment, or we will rule
it with the rod of censorship, says Rabbi S.
Wise, of New York.   This is true alike of the
spoken drama and the motion picture play
The theater, at its best, is one of the great in
stjtutions of society. At its worst, the theater
is in danger of becoming such a menace to
health as is the cesspool and its putrescent
sewage, and that menace is now present in
somejof the vile things that are being perpetrated in New York.    It must be done for the
sake of the young, for unfortunately society is
suffering today   because of its acceptance of
the maxim that youth must and will have its
Hing.   Some women have no sense of fitness
and modsty, a d only they can compete  who
are ready to be still more vulgar.   As a consequence so called society comes to be in  no
small part a matter of competition in semi-
nudity and all that this means.   Packingtown
does not set the»fashion for the gold coast, but
the gold coast does set  the fashion for those
back of the yards and others like them.   Ineffable  mischief is therefore wrought by those
at the top of the social ladder, the evil does
not come from the bottom.
twice as much as hydrogen and is deficient in
lifting power. Its only known source of quantity supply is from liquefaction and distillation. Hydrogen is safe enough if a non-inflammable envelope is used. Asbestos is not strong
enough. No fabric can be fireproofed thoroughly by any process yet discovered. A
metal envelope seems the only practical thing.
But it has not been sufficiently developed.
The gasoline used as fuel is even more dan
gerous than the hydrogen in the gas bag. Experiments are being made with kerosene or
still heavier oil as fuel. This would avoid the
danger of vaporized gasoline.
Happy the man in these days of shortage,
who owns a house that is neither ugly nor uncomfortable. And happier still is the prospective builder who will conform honestly to
good standards for the' new structure. We
may sigh for the good old days of cheap materials and abundant labor, but the responsibility for a pleasant new house is no less personal now than formerly Of course utility
sbould always be considered, but that is no
reason who a house should not also have simplicity of line and good taste in ornament.
Ascension island between Africa and South
America, like St. Helena one of the most
isolated spots iu the world, has a unique government. A British naval captain under the
authority ofthe Gibraltar admiralty administers the affairs of the island as if it were a ship
and the two or three hundred inhabitants
were members of the crew.

A British newspaper man who has just returned from Moscow describes the city as
feverishly active in a business way since the
soviet government removed the ban from private commercial enterprises. The Jiussiau
humorists say that the city is now under the
regime of Czar Nep, which is short for New
Economic Policy. Most of the factories are
now running under private management, shops
and cafes are open and busy, and a new "bour
geois" class, pushing, stirring and apparently
prosperous, is already making its appearance
Business is actually stimulated by the worth-
lessness of the paper money. No one likes to
keep the notes in his possession any longer
than he can help, for they lose value from
hour to hour; so the tradesmen put their daily
receipts into goods at once, are eager buyers
as well as ready sellers. People who have
money spend it quickly for the same reason,
If they save it, they grow poor.
A southwestern city has hit upon a cheap
and efficient system of marking its streets
The names are stenciled in black on a white
background on the curb of the right-hand
corner at the intersection of streets. As a
person drives along a street, he can see the
name of the cross streets as he approaches
them.

Those who think that Hying is not much
more risky than-traveling on a railway train
will be interested iu the figures of the English
air ministry for a period of eight months. The
conclusion of the investigators is that had the
same rate of accident, journey forjourney,
been maintained in railway travel 28,000 engineers would have been killed and 280,000 injured, and that 105,000 passengers would have
been killed and more than a million injured.
According to their figures the risk of tne airplane passenger is 800 times as great as that
of the railway passenger.

Men without number who wore cast, adrift

yet it is now possible to distill enough moist

By breathing the air through the nose and
expelling it through the tube into the bottle,
a person can obtain as much as an once of

Fifteen Sturdy Macs Are Now Canada's
WITH bagpipes skirling and a smile of happy
anticipation on every face tfoe9e fifteen
stalwart lads from the Hebrides first set foot on
Canadian soil on April 3rd. They arrived on
the Canadian Pacific liner "Tunisian," and at
once went on to Chatham, Ontario, from whef-e
■they will be distributed among the farms of
Kenf County to learn the Intricacies of Canadian
farming. They fire Highland farmers and
North' Sea fMiermfeif, and -the ffntest type of 1m-
rrrtgrairts Canada can have, and the advance
guard of 150 otfiers just as good who will soon
ttrive.
Every one of them Is a Mac—three McLeans,
%ree MaeD-onalds, two MacKenzies, two Mac-
Tavlsh'es, a Macpherson, a Macintyre, and a
Macintosh. To add to the Scotch flavor they
were conducted by Father MacDonald, special
colonization agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway. All are.veterans of the Imperial army or
navy, and many have been decorated for bravery
during the great war.
They were glad to be away from the land of
labor strikes and unemployment, and not even
the prospect of a ten-hour day, after their eight
hours in the old country, dampens their enthusiasm for Canadian farm life. So far they are
v*ery favorably impressed with this country,
and have not the slightest notion of ever getting-
homesick. Later on, when their farm experience warrants it, they intend to buy farms of;
their own. *    !

eight double-ended boilers wit* skx
furnaces eaoh, and one single-ended
boiler with three furnaces, the i
ing pressure being 220 lbs. per

This vessel was originally fitted
with coal - bunkers ana burned coal
on her service across the Atlantic.
In order that her speed may be fuHy
maintained, and talcing into account
the great advantages which are associated with the use of oil fuel in
passenger ships, she has, during her
present re-conditioning, been fitted
with oil fuel bunkers for parrying
oil fuel, and a complete Installation
for burning oil fuel in the boilers.
This will make it quite certain tliat
this vessel will be able, to maintain
her speed and time scheduled with
more certainty than if she remained
as a coal-burning ship.. At 4m,
same time sufficient of ' the coal
bonkers have been left intact, and
the furnace fittings for burning _oal
stored in the ship, so that at short
notice, if the oil-fuel supply fall, it
le possible to reconvert the vessel
to a coal-burning ship, and so prevent the laying-up of the vessel
should oil fuel not be available.
The installation of auxiliary machinery is very-complete, the steam-
heating, lighting, and refrigerating
plants are of the most up-to-date
kind, and ensure that the comforts
of passenysrs in respect to thess,
