Commercial Aspect of Fruit
Industry Theme of Maxwell Smith's Lecture
Defective Packing Greatly
Lowers the Price of the
The best attended meeting of the
Kettle Valley Farmers' Institute yet
held in this city was called to order
at 8 o'clock last Monday night by
President Jas. Rooke. The meeting
had been called for the purpose of
hearing an address from Maxwell
. Smith, Dominion fruit inspector, on
the commercial aspect of packing
and marketing fruit,
Mr, Smith was introduced to the
audience by President Rooke. The
speaker prefaced his address by requesting his auditors to ask questions on all points which were not
clear to them.
Mr. Smith spoke in the highest
terms of praise of the National Apple show in Spokane, at which he
had been one of the judges. The
citizens of Grand Forks did not know
what they had missed by not being
better represented at that show, Il
i had been the greatest exhibition of
apples the world had ever seen.
Over 100,000 people, from all parts
of the world, had paid admission.
Every fruit growing district in British Columbia had been represented,
and every district except one bad
won one or more prizes. The Kelowna exhibitors had taken so many
•prizes that they had left one—for the
most perfect apple at the show—behind. Messrs. Collins and Covert
deserved unstinted praise for the
creditable display they made.
The speaker emphasized tbe importance of living up to a reputation
—often a difficult thing to do. British Columbia bad gained an enviable reputation fur her fruit, and it
was the duty of every district in the
province to maintain that reputation. Last year Grand Forks had
kept shoulder lo shoulder with Ke-
leiwnii, but this year this district
hid fallen behind, presumably owing to a lack of unity among the
.growers. Nothing could be accom
plished without harmonious cooperation. According to the nest apple judges in the world, the British
Columbia display at the Spokane
show was the most perfect us regards
quality, tinvor and texture of tho
It woe up to the fruit growers of
British Columbia to put the fruit up
right. There were in this province
Borne fruit growers, but more men
who grew fruit. There was a distinction between these terms.
The people who had exhibited at
Spokane had commenced to make
preparations ror the show last bpring
by properly thinning out tne fruit.
The tiees should only be allowed to
mature as much fruit as they could
bear. From 50 to 75 per cent
picked off by the most successful
growers while the fruit was small.
Most growers complained that they
did not bave the time to do this
work properiy in the spring. "But,"
said  the speaker, "it doesn't take
emy morcpiljne to handle a diamond
than it takes to handle a pebble—it
,take8 no longer to pick off tbe small
Wui? injjcne spring than it does to
pft&lfie maiured fruit in the -fall.
The 60 or 25 per cent left on the
tree to mature will actually weigh
as much in the fall as if it had not
been thinned out, and it will be of
a superior quality."
Mr. Smith Baid he wanted to impress upon the minds of the fruit
growers oi tbe Kettle Valley the
importance of using nice, clean labels and good boxes. Some of the
boxes sent from Grand Forks to
Australia were decidedly defective,
and a number bad broken after being lowered into the vessel. The
fruit was of a good quality, although
some boxes were graded as No. 1
that should have been marked No. 2.
He had inspected them himself.
"I do not know where you get your
boxes," he said, "and I do not care.
But I want see your fruit packed in
the best boxes made. It does not
pay to haggle over half a cent in tbe
cost of them."
There were two classes of people
tbat put up fruit. One class read
the Act to find out how many loopholes there were in it. Tbe other
class studied it in order to do con,
scientious work, and were always
glad to meet the inspectors.
Growers could not be too careful
in grading tbeir fruit. A very little
difference in quality made great deu
of difference in the price. It was
absurd to attempt to save anything
by putting in defective specimens,
He cited these instances': An Okanagan rancher had marketed 100
boxes of indifferently packed aud
graded apples, for which he received
$1 per box. It had cost #39 to market these, leaving him a profit of
$61, Another grower had sold 75
boxes of the same quality of fruit,
but correctly packed and graded, for
which he received $l'.25 per box.
It had cost this man $29.25 to market 75 boxes, leaving him i profit
of $64.50, besides 25 boxes of apples
to make cider of.
The merchant bad a duty to perform as well as the grower in respect
to correct packing. He was sorry
that there were bo few of the former
present at the meeting. In a number of cases the merchant fell short
ot living up to the Act. He had
heard a number of complaints from
growers about imported fruit. Any
merchant who sold imported fruit
not properly packed and graded was
liable to prosecution. There wero a
number of merchants in Grand
Forks who could be prosecuted. He
gave warning that when he prosecuted he generally won. He hated
prosecution, however, and preferred
education. The merchants could
greatly help the growers if tbey did
their duty. There were lots of merchants not present at the meeting
who, tomorrow, would probably ask
about the very thinge he was ex
plaining. He believed in putting
people on their honor. On former
visits to Grand Forks be taken the
assurance of dealers that all the fruit
they had was exposed in their stores,
and had afterwards learned that they
bad more in warehouses and cellars.
There would be no more of this kind
of work in future.
Consumers  would   not   protest!
against paying a high price for fruit
wben assured that .they were getting
a first-class article.'' It did not pay'

Production of "A Regiment
of Two" by Home
Drew a Large Audience and
the Acting Was Very
The large audience that gathered
at the Grand Forks opera bouse last
Friday night to witness the presentation of "A Regiment of Two"
by members of the Bachelors' club
made no mistake by their presence,
us the production was in every respect superior to the majority of
plays presented by professional companies tbat visit Jhe city, and those
who did not attend missed a good
evening's entertainment. The staging and costuming of the play were
up to the standard set by traveling
troupes, and the localisms were apt
and to the point, and never failed to
"bring down the house." The
play, which abounded in comical
situations, was at tbe same' time of
sufficient interest to hold the attention of the audience until the curtain
fell on the last act. The musical
program renderad Mrs. E. Disney
and daughter was of a high standard, and contributed largely to the
enjoyment of the evening. Every
number was heartily encored. The
following waB tbe cast of characters
of the play:
Lcna,a German Maid...L. Masurette
Arthur Sewall, a Theoretical
Warrior F. K. Houston
Grace Sewall, wife of Arthur...
 Marion Hodges
Ira Wilton, father-in-law of Ar-
thur.anotber Warrior..S.J.Winsby
Conrad Melzer, a Plumber	
 Leo Mader
Harry Brentworth, Arthur's
friend T G, Stendal
Laura Wilton, daughter of Ira
 Adeline Livesley
Eliza Wilton, Ira's better half
 Daisy Hodges
Reginald Dudley, an Englishman
 W. Stuart Nutter
Jim Buckner, known as "The
Parson" W. N. Day
All the characters were portrayed
in excellent style. Miss Adeline
Livesley had a difficult part as Laura
Wilton, but she acquitted herself
in a manner that won the applause
of the audience and showed that she
had the right conception of thc
character. Miss Marion Hodges, as
Grace Sewall, also played her purl in
a faultless manner, and won merited
applause; and the portrayal of the
role of Eliza Wilton, by Miss Daisy
llcnlgrs, was of such a meritorious
character that it was difficult to discriminate between it and the art of
an experienced actress. "Louise"
Masurette, who took the soubrette
part, Lena, extracted all the humor
there was in the part, and kept
the audience in an uproar while she
waB on the stage. Messrs. F. K.
Houston, S. J. Winsby, T. G. Stendal and W. Stuart Nutter, as Arthur
Sewall, Ira Wilton, Harry Brentworth and Reginald Dudley, played
their respective parts in a manner
that met with the approbation of the
audience, and they were repeatedly
applauded. Of the male characters
perhaps none excelled Conrad Melzer, the plumber, enacted  by  Leo
Mader. It waB a comedian's part,
and Mr. Mader made a hilariously
funny comedian. Mr. W. N. Day,
who took the part of Jim Buckner,
the Texan, was a close second to
Mr. Mador. Those who have seen
thc old-time citizen of the Lone Star
state had no difficulty in recognizing
the character portrayed by Dr. Day.
The members of the club attended
to the business end, and those who
directed the presentation of the play
behind the scenes, also deserve a
great daal of credit for the unqualified success attained.
It is to be hoped that "A Regiment of Two " will be given a second presentation in this city.
The Christmas examination for entrance to the high school commenced Wednesday morning and
will close this evening. The examination is being conducted by
Miss Bruce, one of tbe teachers in

examinations. The result will be
made public before the re-opening of
the schools after tbe Christmas vacation. The holiday closing exercises of tbe public school were held
this morning.

Two Men Drowned in Christina Lake Bast Saturday Night
While Returning Home From
Cascade With Provisions.
Bodies Not Found
At about 7:30 last Saturday night,
while Ernest Downs, aged 26 years,
and Archibald Wilkinson, aged 36
years, who live at Texas creek, on
Christiana lake, were returning home
by boat from Cascade with provisions, their craft capsized and both
were drowned. A heavy fog prevailed at the time, and it is presumed that the accident was caused
by tbe men attempting to exchange
seats. The boat was found on Monday at English point, but the bodies
have not yet been recovered, although search has been made for
them under the direction of Provincial Constable A. K.  McDonald.
The unfortunate men were recent

Forks opera house on Saturday, December 26th. The piece is now in its
fourth successful season, and has met

ministers in their sermons. The play
is full of comedy bits. It is comedy
that a girl or woman can laugh at uud
not blush at the same time. The burlesque duel scene in the third act between Zeke Dasher and Iiunlick Tubus
is said to bu one scream frnm start to

'PHIS Phoenix Pioneer, which is
I edited jointly by the country
correspondents of the daily papers, the eastern "boiler plate" manufacturers, patent medicine vendors,
"wildcat'' promoters, and traveling
advertising fakirs, last week criticized
The Sun anil its proprietor in such an
unprofessional and ungentleinanly a
manlier, that we are compelled to make
a few brief remarks regarding the
Pioneer and the man who directs the
destinies of that pretentious advertising dodger.
For the benefit of the Pioneer we
will state that we refused to enter into an agreement with traveling advertising fakirs to run a page ad. We
notice that the Pioneer jumped at the
The boast that the Pioneer prints
the news is bused on rather llimsy
grounds. If a weekly or monthly
rehash of the ore shipments can he
called all the news, or fresh news, then
there i.s some foundation to the claim.
For our part we prefer to let our readers lind out the tonnage from the
pnblished table. They are perfectly
competent do so. The constant juggling with these figures in attempts to
wurk out new variations has befogged
the Pioneer man, and we are more
convinced than ever before that his
conception of news is hazy.
Tho Pioneer man is excusable. The
innn who attempts to serve three mas
ters during an election cannot be expected to have much time at his disposal for news gathering.
If the Pioneer is as huge a
financial success as its editor boasts,
it is passing strange that he should, in
order to earn a few extra cents, be
under the necessity of sending, as
specials from Phoenix, week-old New
York and Boston dispatches, accounts
of "hut air" tunnel schemes, boosts for
"wildcats," and even clippings from
mining journals, to the district dailies,
whose news editors lack the time to
investigate these matters. We have
even seen "news items" from the
Boundary under a "speciai" line in the
dailies that were actually two months
If at any time we have inadvertently taken an item from the
Pioneer without due acknowledgment,
the labor of redressing the same in
presentable raiment, and of searching
out and eliminating inaccuracies therefrom, has been so great that we have
deemed the squib more our own property than the Pioneer's.
When the daily papers print column
after column of news items froiii The
Sun and label them "specials" we never
oiler any objection. If they want them,
they are welcome to them. We aro not
egotistical, and we don't care whether
they give us credit for tliem or not.
It is only the upstart on the
Pioneer, who is apparently a man in
stature and a child in judgment, who
imagines he possesses a oorner on the
news service of the northwest.
It is quite natural that the
Pioneer man, who chaws his Inspiration Irom the moon, should accuse
sensible people of obtaining their information lioni mundane sources.
Had the Pioneer confined itself to
answering the subject we discussed, as
a decent newspaper should have done,
there would have heen no objection
taken to its remarks. But it entirely
evaded tho topic, and resorted to
falsehoods and blackguardism, which
stamps its editor as a novice in the
fourth estate fraternity.

no stronger than its
weakest organ. If there is weakness of stomach, liver or lungs, there is a
weak link in the chain of life which may snap at any time. Often this so-called
"weakness" is caused by lack of nutrition, the result of weakness or disease
of the stomach and other organs of digestion and nutrition. Diseases and
weaknesses of the stomach and its allied organs are cured by the use of Dr.
Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. When the weak or diseased stomach is
cured, diseases of other organs which seem remote from the stomach but which
have their origin in a diseased condition of the stomach and
other  organs  of digestion and nutrition, are  cured also*

For a district to attain success in
the fruit growing business it wns es-
seiilial thut local squables be avoided. People devoted too much time to
finding (nulls with others, instead of
attempting to remedy their own
shoiteomings. To in,ike a success
of the business in a community harmonious co-operation was necessary,
und this applied to the Kettle vulley
as well us oilier districts. It was
aiso essential to establish puck ing
houses and employ expert unci scientific puckers. Lust year he hud employed one for the Salmon Arm district at a salary of $,So per month
the year round, and this year the
pack had been perfect. Salmon
Ann had got more money for In r
crop this year than she hnd ever
realized before, and the poor fruit
hnd been left at home for cider.
The growers in thc Kettle valley
would hnve to combine and employ
scientific packers.
The most successful farmers had
started in a modeat way with small
capital. Now they dressed well and
had good bunk uccounts. •'Learn
to run your own farm properly,'' he
said, "then co-operate with
your neighbors in a small way.
Hood River is the shining example
of the benefits of co-operation.    The
growe'8 work log, ther harmoniously
in the iiiunng, m nit of their local affairs, but mnke no attempt to die-
late to outside districts."
The speaker snid be had prosecuted as ninny merchants in thi*
province as fruit growers for an infraction of the Fruit Act. He was
satisfied in demanding that the imported fruit should come under the
same regulations as that grown at
home. "The fruit grown in llritish
Columbia is superior in flavor and
texture to that grown in any other
part of the world," said Mr. Smith.
"Would you not recommend selling a second grade apple?" some one

Past Weel,
1 iv?" Mr. Smith was asked by one
oi bis auditors.
"During the lifetime of the present generation there is no possibility
of an overproduction of No. 1 British Columbia .fruit," replied the
speaker. "The Northwest is. the
natural market for the fruit of British Columbia. It is worth more to
the fruit grower of this province than
tbe English market. And the population in the Northwest is increasing more rapidly than the orchards
of this province. Therefore the danger of overdoing the industry, if
properly attended to, is nil."
Mr. Smith closed his address hy
saying thnt although it wns not gen-
eridly known, it wns nevertheless 11
fact that the British Columbia apple
grower realized more from a box of
apples than the Califoroia orange
grower got from a box of oranges.
Martin Burrell, M.P., was called
on. His remarks were decidedly of
a Tory leaning. He attributed nil
the   ills   of  British Columbia fruit
growers to the tariff. He asked Mr.
Smith if the Kelowna exhibit at the
Spokane show was an individual dr
district display. Mr. Smith replied
that wns made under the auspices of
the Kelowna board of trade.
President Rooke said there would
never be any more complaints in regard to apples packed by the Grand
Forks Fruit Growers' association as
long as he had anything to do with
that organization.
J. L. Manly thought it was more
through lack of experience than
an intentional desire to run as close
to the letter of the Act as possible
without actually violating it. tbat
made packers wedge in the 10 per
cent of defective apples.
A vote of thanks was tendered Mr
Smith, and rhe meeting adjourned.
