President Barnes Explains
Ihe Method Pursued by
the Okanagan United
Tbe meeting ol tbe Grand Forks
Cooperative Growers 'Exchange on
Tuesday evening was perhaps the
largest gathering of local fruit
growers ever held in tbe city, tbe
Empress theater being filled to its
full capacity.
The proceedings were not, by any
means, at all times uniuffled by
acrimonious discussions. Peter
Veregin's official interpreter and
manager was particularly insistent
in his endeavor to le'arn why so
email a return bad been made for
the fruit shipped. During tbe numerous times tbat he arose 11 address the meeting some pertinent
points were scored, and from tbe
applause with which they were received it is suppoted tbat they
atruok a sympathetic chord in the
breasts of tbe non-community men
C. E. Barnes, president of the
British Columbia Fruit Growers association, on being introduced by
tbe chairman, stated tbat be bad
received a oopy of tbe questions pro*
pounded at the meeting last week
and that he had gathered data to
answer tbem. As a prelude to doing
so, be gave a brief description of
the demoralized condition of the
market for alj farm propucts all over
the continent.
The prairies had had all the apples they could consume, and a
market had to be found for the balance of tbe crop. For this reason
shipments bad been made to New
York, Chicago and Minneapolis.
Three "carloads had been sent to
South Africa and one to New Zea
land. Australia bad an embargo
against the importation of tbe apples. Tbe O.U.G. now had fifty
carloads oi appler in cold storage
on the prairies. They bad been optimistic up to the middle of December, wben the New York market
stiffened and their agency there began selling; but the middle west
bad rushed its large surplus holdings to the seaboard and again de
moralized prices. Tben we stopped
selling, he said.
No more apples could be sold in
Canada, and we had to find an out
side marker. The ooly country in
the world that Could take the buge
surpliat was the United States. Mr.
Barnes admitted that tbe inability
of the O.U.G. to furnish the producers witb proper information was t\
weak point in Jhe organization.
The assertion bad been made,
said Mr. Barnes, tbat the - O. U.G.
controlled 76 per cent of the fruit
production of the province. This
was an error. The organization only
controlled 50 per cent. While the
O.U.G. often came in competition
witb otber selling agencies, it had
never attempted to secure trade by
cutting prices. The retailer, in the
speaker's opinion, made the biggest
percentage of profit from fruit. The
barrel apple trade from the eastern
provinces did not affect tbe prairie
market; ae these apples only csme
as far west as Winnipeg.
The O.U.G. bad selling agencies
in ths prinoipal centers all over the
continent. Tbese agencies' met*, subsidiary concerns of the O.U.G., and
when tbe apple season was over
they helped to make their expenses
by   handling  tbe  ditrue  fruit  of
Florida and California, which did
not compete with tbe B itisb
Colombia apples. All sales were
made on orders from the parent
organization. When a oar of fruit
was shipped from Vernon or Grand
Forks it was kept rolling until It
reached a center -where there was a
markoi for it.
One hundred and four cars of*
Grand Forks fruit bad been sold up
to date. Tbere now remain unsold
thirty-four oars of apples and four
care of vegetables. Fifty-seven ana
one-balf per cent of t.e Okanagan
fruit bad been' shipped to distant
markets, while only 40 der cent of
tbe Grand Forks fruit bad been
sent to tbese markets-
Regarding tbe disparity in gov
ment bulletin prices and f.o.b. shipping point quotations, tbe speaker
explained tbat bulletin prices were
those charged by wholesalers, while
the f.o.b. shipping point quotations
were fixed by the selling agency.
The prune and pear market bad
been smashed by the American
If the story was true that a Grand
Forks grower bad netted |2 per box
for culls in tbe prairie market, tbe
speaker could only say that tbe
man had missed bis calling. He
should be selling gold bricks or oil
stocks. Tbe story was sifted down
to be composed mostly of moonshine.
Mr. Barnes said that a trade for
western boxed apples was being developed in eastern Canada. As an
Illustration of how apples travel to
find a market, be cited cases where
tbey frequently passed through half
e dozen selling agencies. Five oars
of prunes bad been shipped to New
.York. These had gone through
five agencies.
Mr. Barnes thought it wonld be
impracticable to attempt to sell
direct to the retailers owing to the
large amount of capital that would
be required for such a venture.
Tbe speaker could, see no prospects of an improved market for
ooxt year's crop, as from present
indications it wou'd be unsafe to
figure in a small crop. He did not
like to be pessimistic, but thought
it best to face existing conditions
and to prepare for eventualities.
The O.U.G. would try to hold the
prairie market, and_ he did not
think tbere would be any difficulty
in doing so.
Tbe freght on a box of app'es to
New York is $1.35, said tbe speaker.
Mr. Barnes defended tbe antidumping clause of tbe tariff bill,
and said it saved the small-fruitB
market for tbe Canadian growers
tbis years. ,
An attempt would be made to induce tbe federal government to
amend tbe Fruit aot so as to provide
for tbe Ameri an standard ot grading and naming apples. It was difficult to make consumers believe
tbat tbe Canadian No. 1 was the
same as tbe American Extra Fancy
and tbat the No. 2 and Fancy were
the same.
Mr. Barnes stated that the selling
branch of   the O.U.G. would be re
organized on   a  five-year contract
witb gtowers basis by the  first of
The speaker gave an interesting
account of how tbe California raisin
growers had fouud a market for au
overproduction of raisins by inducing tbe people to make and use
raisin bread.
Tbe meeting adjourned until next
Saturday, wben tbe exchange will
elect officers and directors.

Col. David Forster   on
Obstacles to Universal
Vancouver, Jan. 30.—The Washington conference, by helping "to
dig a {channel through which tbe
stream of peace and good-will may
flow," has brought the millennium
appreciably nearer, in the opinion
expressed in an address by Lieut.-
Col. David Forster, C.M.G., D.S.O.,
of the military operations branch of
the war,office and one of tbe military
advisers t J the British delegation at
Washington, wbo addressed tbe
Canadian club on Saturday.
"Wbile suoh a conferenc as the
one now being held in Washington
can not alone accomplish universal
peace upon earth, they can do mucb
to mitigate tbe chances of conflict,"
be sard. "We of the British empire
have our part to do and should
stand together as a unit in doing it.
We should bs prepared to act as a
unit politically, economically and,
as a last resort, in military meas
ures. Our responsibilities and liabil-
it es ars enormous and empire unity
of action must be our aim."
There are endless possibilities lor
future trouble in the world today,
Col Forster said. Tbe task ot mankind must be to see that these do
oot develop into probabilities.
Chief among these possible dangers ars a desire for revenge on tbe
part of Germany and ber late allies,
tbe instability of certain of the
newly-created smaller European nations, the almost inevitable Russo-
German economic rapproachment,
and the differences between Jugoslavia and Italy. Tbe situation is
sucb that careful handling by wise
statesmen is required, he stated.
Of tbe agencies to prevent tiouble
great credit must be given to the
League of Nations for the way in
which it has carried out its war
preventive duties without the aid of
any power to actually enforce its
decisions, he declared.

that the company would build a

in the discussions. Tbe conferenoe
was a sort of party caucus, and matters affecting tbe welfare of tbe province were considered and a 'program
of general economy outlined.

tbat tbe government bas been
strengthened by recent events, and

new cabinet ministers will be opposed in the by-elections.
Dr. King, Federal
Public Works Minister,
Has Enviable Record
Dr. J. H. King, wbo left Vancouver Saturday for Ottawa to be
sworn in as federal minister of public works, bas an enviable record in
Canadian politics. He came west
from New Brunswick and is a McGill graduate, taking up the practice of medicine and surgery as a
profession. His father is Senator Q.
G. King, still one of the strong
Liberals in the Canadian upper
bouse. The new minister bas been
in British Columbia for nearly
twenty-five years, coming to Kootenay in 1898, wbere be soon became
well known as a medical practitioner
He also identified himself with various industrial enterprises and waa
a leader in political circles while still
a young man. Dr. King was first
elected ro the legislature in 1903
and represented Cranbrook until
1907. He was defeated as tbe federal candidate for tbe Liberal party
in tbe reciprocity election in 1911,
but in 1916 carried Cranbrook for
the provincial Liberals, being reelected in 1920. Hon. Dr. King
married Miss Sadler.of Grand View,
N.B., fifteen years ago.

The San Francisco Bulletin has the following excellent editorial on the life-work of  the
late Viscount Bryce:   "In spite of the title
that came to him solely as the reward of
merit and distinguished service, it is somehow
difficult to think of him as Viscount Bryce  of
Dechmont.   Save for his last two volumes, a
survey and study of the six great modern
democracies, his work as an author—and it is
as an author that he wUl live in history—was
done as plain James Bryce.  The pelage, d id
not bring him distinction; he brought distinction to the peerage. As ambass-idot* of Britain
to the United States he did much to promote
as well as preserve the friendly relations of th e
two countries, though even in that we see the
fruits of the author rather than of the diplo
mat.    'The  American Commonwealth' gave
Bryce a prestige that commanded the respe ct
of Washington. He came to us as one with
whose thoughts we were already familiar and
not as a stranger. As a student of the governmental institutions of his day and as a
lucid, impartial exponent he will be remembered. Those institutions are destined to
changes and already are changing, but as they
stood in the nineteenth and early part of the
twentieth centuries they will be reflected for
all time in the pages of Bryce. He wrote as
Lasselle said of himself, with the full force of
the whole culture of his century, and he wrote
also with the force of the culture of all the
centuries. All history was to him a familiar
book, while in the most unexpected but always in the most illumini* g way he drew upon
the literature of all lands and all ages for the
illustration of some point in the local politics
of the United States, Sonth Africa or New
Zealand. A man of amazing industry, a tower
of strength to the cultural penetration of his
country, a conscientious student of the liberal
thought and hopeful outlook, he was above
all else a master of exposition and could make
an analysis of political institutions as interesting as a pleasant essay or spirited romance.
At twenty-four he was recognized as a historian, and he lived for more than a quarter
of a century after achieving international
recognition as an interpreter of the two
hemispheres. The world has lost one that
worked with special gifts and special enthusiasm for a better friendship based on better
understanding of the nations."

Um speed at which Canadian products ean be pnt on the market in England was strikingly
demonstrated recently.
The Department of Colonization and Development of the Canadian Pacific Railway
recently shipped by Dominion Express on the "Empress of Britain" a consignment of
Oanadlan apples for exhibition at 62-65, Charing Cross, and the other offices of the company in Europe. The apples came from various Canadian provinces, and it is interesting
to note that some of them actually left the producer and were on show in less than eight
days. For instance, the Ontario consignment left Trenton, Ontario, at 2 a.m., November
1, by C.P.R., arrived Montreal at 8 a.m., left at 9 a.m., and arrived Quebec at 2 p.m.
They were immediately placed on board the Canadian Pacific liner "Empress of Britain,**
which arrived Liverpool on Tuesday morning, Nov. 8. Before the last passenger was off the
ship the apples were discharged, whisked in Dominion Express motors to the special train
to Euston Station, London, which was reached soon after 2 p-m. the same day. Here
Dominion Express vans collected them, and at 3 o'clock they were on exhibition in the
windows of the Canadian Pacific at Charing Cross, with a card reading, "Canadian apples,
from producer to consumer in less than eight days."
Though Canada is three thousand miles from England, our system of quick trans-
Eirtation is bringing us nearer to that country every day.   Recently the "Empress of
rrtain" went to Liverpool and back to Quebec in 15 days, including the time taken ia
embarking and disembarking passengers.
A Fruit Conference Will Be
Held at Ottawa February 22
A  Dominion  fruit conference is to bc held
in Ottawa on February 22, 213 and 24, accord
ing to an announcement this week by 0. W,
Baxter, Dominion fruit commissioner.
Definite steps are expected to be taken towards more systematic grading and paoking
of fruit, both for export and domestic use.
At the recent convention of the B. C. Fruit
Growers' association in Victoria Messrs. C. E.
Barnes and Capt. Capt. J. T. Mutrie of Vernon, mid Thos. Abriel of Nakusp and R. M.
Palmer of Cowichan were appointed to attend
the conference, the date of which was not
then known. Chief Dominion Fruit Inspector
G. L. Clarke, who is at present on the coast,
will be Qamong the western representative.
Provincial horticulturists will represent the
department at Victoria.
The B. O. Credit and Traffic association will
probably be represented by its manager, li.
M. Winslow, while either Sales Manager Chas.
Clowe  or W. J.  McDowell, the secretary
treasurer of tho Okanagan United  Growers,
will make the trip.
One of the important topics to come under
discussion during the three-day conference will
be the reviving of the National Horticultural
Senator Poindexter, chairman of the United States mines and min ng committee, has
started negotiations with the Dominion government whereby both governments shall re-
meve the one cent per pound duty on lead on
its return to the country of origin after having
been smelted in the other country. At the
present time a considerable quantity of lead
ore that is mined in the state of Washington
is smelted in British Columbia, while lead ore
mined in British Columbia is «smelted in
Idaho, Washington and Utah. The proposed

;»l>-;'-'Ii •      :*-:.*,'-.   *.*-■*;*
One of the chief Innovations at the
Chateau Frontenac, Quebec, in connection with the winter sports programme is the Introduction of a husky
dog team. In order to secure the genuine animal a representative visited
thu North Country to select dogs
suitable for this purpose. Previous
to the journey telegrams were sent
to all important fur posts, north of
the Great Lakes, but owing to the
unusual conditions prevailing during
the fall of 1921, little success was
met with. A variety of replies were
received — one Hudson's Bay Post
sent word that owing to the lateness
of the "freeze up," and poor travelling conditions, Indian trappers were
still far in the interior with their
dogs, and were not expected out till
the New Year. Another factor replied that strange sickness, the
symptoms of which resembled distemper, was affecting most of the
dogs in his vicinity, and that he
would not advise their purchase. Another wired that fish was so scarce,
dogs were extremely thin and wicked, and weaker members had been

Winter Sports in Quebec
1. The Chateau slide.   2. Dog sleighing at Kent House; on the left Miss K. Fox,
winner of the race.
With the object of making Quebec
the leading winter sport city on this
continent, a very attractive and
varied programme of matches, races,
and competitions is being arranged
for the season of 1921-22, and visitors to this beautiful and romantic
old city will have a wonderful opportunity of witnessing or participating
ln ski-races, hockey games, snowshoe
tramps, curling matches, skating
events, ski-joring, indoor and outdoor festivities and entertainments,
all in a historic Betting without
parallel in North America.
The Chateau Frontenac, which is
the traditional social centre of the
city, is co-operating heartily by the
contribution not only of a triple
chute toboggan slide on Dufferin
Terrace, a ski jump on Citadel Hill,
a skating rink adjoining the hotel
and a curling rink in the Palm Court,
of the hotel, but also offering cups
for competition between amateur
bo.-k.-y clubs and snowshoe clubs of
the city as well as individual prizes'
for the various sporting events.
The whole city, with its hilly
streets, its skating rinks, its beautiful Battlefields Park on the Plains
of Abraham, its proximity to quaint
old French-Canadian villages and
natural scenery of spectacular beauty such as Montmorency Falls, its
atmosphere of hospitality and gaiety
and charm, offers to those who love
.o tramp on snowshoes or glide on
skis, or hurtle down on toboggans,
or drive, wrapped in furs, to the
jingle of the sleigh bells, a choice
of out-door winter recreation such
as would be difficult to rival anywhere.
The population of Quebec revels
in its glorious winter. The Quebec
child takes to snowBhoes, and very
soon after that graduates to skates
nr a toboggan or skis. As the years
pass, ho or she joins a club and
plays hockey, and many with the
approach of maturity learn to wield
the broom and the curling stone, and
"aoop her up." A dog sleigh is a
step on the ladder to a sleigh drawn
by a fast trotter.
Winter sport is thus native to
Quebec. The snowshoe and ski
clubs extend to visitors cordial invitations to their outings which ara
always most interesting and enjoyable affairs. A big curling Bonspiel
lasting for a week, will be held sometime during February, in which
teams from many points in Canada
and possibly the United States will
participate. Within the Chateau
Frontenac there will be indoor golf,
billiards, music and there is an excellent floor for dancing. The convenience of having a curling rink
actually within the Chateau walls
and a skating rink immediately adjoining the hotel, need only bc mentioned to be appreciated, while the
toboggan slide on Dufferin Terrace
and the ski-jump arc within less
than 200 yards of the hotol.
