interesting Article Regarding
Development of the Apple Trade
Co-Operative Assciations Result in Complete Transformation
A recent development in the Canadian apple industry is made tbe
subject of a valuable paper by Mr.
It. H. Coats, of the Labor Gazette,
ut Ottawa, which appears in the
Quarterly Sournal of Econofnics, published for Harvard university, Mr.
Coats, who by virtue of his connection with the departmen' of labor,
is familiar with the condition of Canadian trade and labor, states that the
employment of the cooperative method has transformed the Canadian
apple industry.. Less than eight years
ago the average farmer's orchard was
worse than profitless; now he has
made it, if he has essayed co-opera*
tion, one of the most paying depart
merits of the farm.
Mr. Coats traces the history of the
Canadian orchard, beginning with the
original planting of apple trees in
Ontario for the personal use of the
farmer and the local market, The
orchard consisted then of three or
four acres. The trees were bought in
varieties which would yield, each in
its turn, throughout the summer and
autumn. There were few opportunities for farmers to bocoiuo export or*
charaists. An early period of prosperity was followed by a decline. By
1865 overproduction had made many
Ontario orchards valueless.
This was succeeded by an impulse
from the British market. Orchard:
planted during the ensuing period
covered from twenty to thirty acres.
Three or four varieties of apples,
known to be favorites, were chosen
carefully. But again overproduction
followed, and in 1896, a phenomenal
year, it was estimated that even million barrels of apples in Ontario alone
gave no immediate return to the
grower. The era hail arrived of the
buyer who brought his own gang of
pickers and packers.   But smaller or
chards and those in inconvenient
places were ciowded out.
It was to solve .this problem of the
small orchard that co-operation came
in. A number of farmers conceived
the idea of combining. One of their
number arranged for shipment and a
market. Gradually the necessity for a
central pocking house became evident.
Incorporation followed, in the case of
Ontario under a measure passed in
19.00 for co-operative cold storage associations. By 1905 twenty co-operative apple picking and shipping associations existed in Canada, with an
approximate membership of 1300. In
that year 10 per cent of the apple
shipments from Canada bore the
stamp of the co-operative associations.
With regard to their market standing
Mr. Coats writes: -'On the rare-occasions on which shipments have been
sent by the associations on consignment they have decisively beaten all
competitors in the open market."
Put briefly, the objects of co-operative associations are: Uniformity in
packing; economical methods; sending
each variety to market in its best;
manufacture or wholesale purchase of
packing material; management by
competent men whose interests are
identical with those of the other members; improvement of product; sule of
fruit at point of shipment; and utilization of surplus or inferior product.
The history of the co-operative apple industry in Canada: is of marked
interest, aud reflects credit, on the
Canadian farmer for his initiative and
adaptability. Mr. Coats' article should
be made known widely among agriculturists. It is from such studies
that practical applications arc most
readily and usefully drawn.

Kettle Valley Line Will Commence  Tracklaying on

The Perfect Pantry company is
showing a very useful piece of kitchen
furniture in the Addison block, opposite the postotlice. As its name implies, it is a complete pantry, consisting of about fifteen compartments,
for flour, meal, sugar, coffee, bread,
cake, spices, etc., all being yery conveniently arranged. It is made of
tin, and all compartments are perfectly air-tight. In appearance il is quite
handsome. Those who are interested
in this class of goods should inspect
the Perfect pantry. The company will
remain the city until the 11 th prox.
Grade Is Now Completed to
Lynch Creek, Nineteen
Miles North
H. W. Warrington, chief enginei r,
stated a couple of days ago that in
all probability tracklaying on the
North Fork extension of the Kettle
Valley line would be commenced on
April lst.and work continued until the
end of the grade is reached, some
nineteen miles up the river. The big
bridge across the Kettle river at Third
street is rapidly nearing completion
and when this is finished the entire
line from its preseut terminns in the
Ruckle addition to Lynch creek will
be ready for the steel. At present
tracklaying is to be started from the
point where the grade parallels the
C. P. R., a short distance north of
Columbia.

A Valuable Horse
M. Uhlman, of St. PauJ, representing McLaughlin Bros., of Columbus,
Ohio, importers of draft and coach
stallions, arrived in the city on Tuesday, bringing'with him the imported
French couch bullion Decide 4180,
valued at uliout •jMfiOO. A local stock
company is now being organize I with
the object of purchasing this ..iluah'o
animal, and thus improve the bread of
horseflesh in the valley. Decide is
the prettiest specimen of horseflesh
evor seen in the west—brown, star,
both hind legs white; foaled May 11,
1903. Sired by the government stallion Norodum, dam Toupie by Message, 2d dam Mouvette by Octavo,
3d dam by,Harmonioux IV.
The French coach breed, instead of
being the product of a multiplicity of
ideas, has been developed under the
exclusive jjuidauce of the director
general of the national studs of France,
As these officials are educated in the
same school from generation to
generation, and are taui*ht to
value the same form, seek for the
same qualities, and pursue   the   same
system, it can readily be understood
how it hos been posssble for them to
attain such high perfection and great
unifojiuity in the breed. All breeders
are confined exclusively to the use of
animals inspected and licensed by this
department.
So fixed is the type* of French
coachers that thev ha.v proved themselves the most prepotent and impressive breed of horses that has ever been
introduced into this country. They
transmit their valuable qualities to
their progeny witb a surety and defin-
iteness that cannot be excelled.

Deafness, because usually due to

true. Success invariably attends the
use of Catarrhozone, which has cured
catarrhal deafness of twenty-five years

of Catarrhozone relieves the inflammation, destroys the seeds of catarrh and
thereby allows nature to re-assist herself. Try Catarrhozone vourself, 25c

A Valuable Horse
M. Uhhnan, of St. PauJ, representing McLaughlin Bros., of Columbus,
Ohio, importers of draft and coach
stallions, arrived in the city on Tuesday, bringing with him the imported
French couch sjallion Decide 4180,
valued at almm **M<>00. A local stock
company is now being org mize I with
the object of purchasing this wiluab'e
animal, and thus improve the lured of
horseflesh in tho valley. Decide is
the prettiest specimen of horseflesh
ever seen in the west—brown, star,
both hind legs white; foaled May 14,
1903. Sired by the government stallion Norodum, dam Toupie hy Message, 2d dam Mouvette by Octavo,
3d dam by Harmonieux IV.
The French coach breed, instead of
being the product of a multiplicity of
ideas, has been developed under the
exclusive guidance of the director
general of the national studs of France.
As these officials are educated in the
same school from generation to
generation, and are taught to
value the same form, seek for the
same qualities, and pursue   the   same

system, it cun readily be understood
how it hos been posssble for them to
attain such high perfection and great
unifoamity in the breed. All breeders
are confined exclusively to the use of
animals inspected and licensed by this
department.
So fixed is the type* of French
coachers that thev ha,v proved themselves the most prepotent and impressive breed of horses that has ever been
introduced into this country. They
transmit their valuable qualities to
their progeny with a surety and defin-
iteness that cannot be excelled.

FRIDAY, MARCH 29, 1907
The socialist members have introduced a new feature in the legislature. Whenever a measure which
does not suit their peculiar tenets is
under consideration, they show their
disapproval by walking out of the
house. The walkouts have been
quite frequent during the past two
weeks.. In the meantime their constituencies remain unrepresented.
The new labor bill appears to be
more drastic than was at first supposed. The Act makes it unlawful
for any employee to go on strike
on account of a dispute prior to or
during a reference to the board of
conciliation and investigation, to be
appointed under the provisions of
the law, or prior to or during a reference, under provisions concerning
railway disputes in tbe Conscience
and Labor Act. Before conditions
of employment regarding wages or
hours can be altered, employers and
employees must give thirty days' notice of the intended change. The
penalty for an employee strikingcon-
trary to the act is a fine of not less
than ten dollars nor more than fifty
dollars for each day er part of a day
on strike, and for persons inciting an
employee to strike, not less than
fifty nor more than one thousand
dollars. Whenever any dispute exists, the employee or employer may
make written application to the minister of labor for tbe appointment of
a board, or in cace of railway disputes, the dispute may be referred
for tbe purpose of conciliation and
investigation under the Conciliation
and Labor Act. The board consists of three members, appointed by
tbe minister of labor, one recommended by the employer, one by
the employee, and a third,who shall
be chairman, named by tbe mem
ners so chosen. If either party fails
to recommend a member within five
days after being requested by the
minister to do so, the minister will
appoint the members. Members
must not bave pecuniary interest
in the issue of dispute, and attendance of witnesses may be enforced
and evidence taken on oath, and
books, papers, etc., called for. Thc
penalty if witnesses fail to appear is
not exceeding $100. Counsel or solicitors are not allowed to be heard
without the consent of the parties
interested. Proceedings shall be
public unless otherwise determined
by the hoard. The hoard's report
and recommendations tube made to
the minister mid published in th
Labor Gazette.

Le Roi Ore Goes to Northport
The ores of the lie Roi mines, pai t
of which are now being treated at the
-Trail smelter, will soon all be going to
the Northport smelter. Th's announcement has been made to the
Spokesman - Review by Albert I.
Goodell, manager of the Northport
plant, Mr. Goodell states that the
old factional fight over the question of
the smelting of the ores has been settled and that hereafter all the ores of
the Le Roi will go to Northport. The
contract with the Trail smelter is
about up. This contract or agreement wus made after a dispute had
arisen over the sending of the ores to
Trail, the stand being taken by the
T'ail people that they had a contract
to smelt certain of the Le Roi ores.
The case was taken into the courts and
then compromised by the Le Roi interests agreeing to send a certain tonnage of ores to Trail. This tonnage
has been nearly completed, Mr. Goodell states, and arrangements are being
made for the installation of another
furnace. Two furnaces are now being operated at Northport, and with
the addition of all the ores of the Le
Roi mines, a third furnace will be
necessary. The Le Roi mines and
the" North port smelter are owned by
the same interests.

trip to Cobalt. He thinks tbat Cobalt is a great mining camp, and
tbat a good deal more will be beard
of it in the future, though, of course,
ibe wildcatters are there in full force,
and are taking advantage of the
boom to unload any quantity of
shares in companies the value of
whcse holdings is extremely doubtful, to say tbe least.
Two large furnaces are now
in steady blast at tbe British Columbia Copper company's smelter at
Greenwood, and are doing splendid
work. The management express
satisfaction with tbe results obtained so far.
M. M. Johnson, consulting engineer for the Dominion Copper company, spent last week in the Boundary, inspecting the work done on
tbe company's properties and laying
out new development.
Three cars of ore are out for ship
ment already at the Riverside
group, a few miles from Midway, on
which work was recently started.
Acting Manager Bearley, of the
British Columbia Copper company,
is quoted in print as saying that the
copper in the ore he handles runs
from 1J to 1*- per cent, two of tbe
contributing mines doing better than
tbis. Tbe recovery is said to be 85
per cent, and tbat the blister copper
brings 32 cents per pound, 8 cents of
which is gold.

That doesn't cure the corn. Just
apply the old standby, Putnam's Corn

the pain, cures the corn. Does it
without burn or scar. Get the best—

Installing Air Compressor
/, 40-drill air compressor, built
bv trfe AlliB-Chalmers coinpany, will
shortly be installed hy the Dominiin
Copper coinpany. The compressor
has been shipped from tbe east and
should arrive some time in April. It
is intended for the better development of the Sunset group of properties. It is to be erected on the site
which is being prepared for it at the
back of the boarding bouse, half
way bptwe<*n the Sunset proper and
the Crown silver, one of the group,
and n pipe line running either way
to connect either mine with the machinery. The drill hns n capacity
of 937 cubic feet per minute, and
has with it an induction motor of
125 horsepower of the type known
as A.N. With its assembly the Dominion Copper company will be in
a better position than ever to make
a cut in the costs of mining, which
heretofore assumed rather larger proportions than they should.

tented by a reliable person or firm
to be of first-class quality, by being
marked "No. l,""Prime,""Fancy,"
"XXX," or sucb other designation
which a special standard of purity
is fixed by Section 4 of the Seed
Control Act.
"Government Standard" is a'
term coined by seed vendors and
may be misleading unless clearly
understood. Section 4 of the Act
fixes a standard of quality in respect
to weed seeds below which timothy,
alsike and red clover seeds ara not
allowed to be sold for seeding, either
by farmers or seed merchants. This
standard allows of the weed seeds
named in the Act about 90 in one
ounce of red clover, 200 in one ounce
of alsike, or 400 in one ounce of
timothy seed. It is to seeds tbat
will pass this lower standard, but
are not sufficiently olean to grade
"No. 1" that tbe term "Government
Standard" was attached last season.
Some seed vendors have adver
tised seeds under "Government
Seal." No government seal is used
on any seeds offered for sale in the
trade. Some reliable seed house sell
grass and clover seeds sealed by them,
and for which thev alone nre held
responsible so long as the senl remains intact, but not after it is
broken.
To avoid the provisions of Sec
tion 3 of the Act, which applies
mainly to seed grain, some seed
vendors represent to farmers that,
on account of the Seed Control Act,
they are offering their grain for sale
for milling or feeding purposes. If
offered for Bale for seeding, such
seed vendors are required to make
clear to intending purchasers thnt
the seed contains wild oats, wild
mustard, cockle and such otber
noxious weed seeds when tbey are
in the seed. The object of the Act
is to protect farmers who want to
protect themselves against such
seeds. It provides the means for
farmers to buy seed intelligently.
Farmers who deliberately buy feed
grain and use it for seed can scarcely
hope for legislation that will protect

Labor Bill Passed
At Ottawa last Friday the royal
assent was given to Hon. R. Le-
mieux's labor bill, which was rushed
through the senate, the object being
to head off the impcndin-*'*oal workers' strike in this province. The
bill compels publicity in labor disputes. Before a strike can be declared, tbe parties affected must submit to an investigation of their cases
to an independent tribunal, the chief
duty of which is to make public tbe
actual facts which are vital to the
issue. If after this publicity the
parties wish to fight each other,
they are at liberty to do so; but it is
expected that the weight of public
opinion will compel either one side
or tbe other to yield. As tbe new
law will apply to tbe coal operators
and miners in the coal fields in
Southeast Kootenay, an immediate
strike is an impossibility' as the law
goes into effect at once.

Deafness, because usually due to
catarrh, is quite curable. In a thousand cases this iB proved absolutely
true. Success invariably attends tbe
use of Catarrhozoue, which has cured
catarrhal deafness of twenty-five years
standing. Penetrating through the
passage of the ear, the soothing vapor
of Catarrhozone relieves the inflammation, destroys the seeds of catarrh and
thereby allows nature to re-assist herself. Try Catarrhozone yourself, 25c
and yffl.00 sizes sold by all dealers.
