KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 24. 1916.-6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  Provincial Commission to Care for  Returned Soldiers  Will Make Every Effort to  Provide Situations  Ihe provincial organization whioh  wus formed soma time ago to cope  with the problem oi taking cure oi  soldiers returning from the war, either  by assisting such as are able bodied  in finding employment or providing  hospital care and aocominodation for  the sick and disabled, is moving actively toward the building up of an  etbeient working system. Committees  . have been formed in most centres oi  any importance, und these are oharged  with the duty of seeing that no case  is overlooked or neglected.  it is the intention of the commission  that returning men shall be directed  -to make application for employment,  training, or whatever assistance they  may need to the local committee nearest their homes. Should the local  committee be unable to find employment or furnish adequate assistance,  the central office is at once communicated with.       r  For the purpose oi. facilitating the  work of the commission a classification is made into (1) able-bodied men,  for whom employment will be found if  possible, (2) convalescents, for whom  accommodation will be found at the  Convalescent Home, under the jurisdiction of the military medical department, (3) permanently disabled men,  who are unable to follow their former  occupation and wlio will be given some  technical training to fit tihem for a  new occupation, and (4) incurable in-  vatidu, who will be provided with hospital accommodation by the Military  Hospital committee.  'ihe local committee for Kelowna  consists of the Mayor and Messrs. L.  E. Taylor, 1'. Dumoulin, G. Meikle, M.  Hereron and W. ti. Benson, and all  applications from returned soldier* in  , ttiia district should first be made to  them.  farmers' Institutes of 0. Ii.  to Meet at Victoria  The annual convention of the farmers' Institutes oi British Columbia will  be hold in Victoria from Wednesday  to Friday, March .'8th to 10th. A  large number of resolutions have been  submitted by the various institutes  throughout the province, and the merits oi each will be discussed in detail.  This convention will confine itself to  business matters principally, l'rof.  Wertwook, oi tho B. C. University and  Dean Klinck, Dean oi Agriculture ol  the same institution, will address the  delegates, as well as a number of  other men prominently identified with  the agricultural interests of the province. Amongst the latter will be  l'rof. W. T. McDonald, Provincial Live  Stock Commissioner, and H. Oi Kng-  lilh, Soil and Crop Instructor. Premier Bowser and Hon. A. C. Flumor  felt, Minister oi Finance and Agriculture, will be accorded a prominent  place on the program.  Reclaiming Lands  , Spoilt By Seepage  Drainage Act Must Be Redrafted to .Extend Assessment  Iho question of damage whioh is being caused by seepage water in irrigated districts, and the advisability of  being able to assess the oo.it oi tho  drainage work rendered necessary by  such seepage, against tho on nets ol  tundr causing the damage as well as  those actually benefitted by tin. drainage wus the subject of further disous-  mon ut the Board of Trade mooting  Tuesday night.  that this waterlogging of formerly  good lunds wuh becoming a serious  question was made clear by tho statement that in many places around ft-el-  owuu since irrigation systems hud been  installed tho wuter labia had risen us  iuch as twelve or fourteen foot. Lakes  had been formed in Rutland which were  gradually encroaohing upon surround-  mg land, and although a scheme has  been started-there to drain tho water  away it is at present held up because  of the lack of provision in tho Drainage Act for taxing unyone except tnOB��  whoso lands will bo benefitted, leaving  out of uccount those on the higher  levels who have oaused tho damage.  Mr. C. Groves reported on behalf of  the special committee appointed to enquire into tho matter that the whole  Drainage Act nxrded redrafting as it  waB not applicable to tho ease at ail.  It had originally been passed to meet  the needs of farmers alung the FraStsr  river. Mr. (.roves thought there  wouhl be no difficulty in getting the  government to uct if the matter was  brought before their notice in the right  way.  It was left with the new committee  to draft a new , Act dealing with the  question.  The quostion of appointing u joint  secretary ulong with other association* in town wus'uIbo discussed ut  considerable length, but no definite decision was arrived at.  The advisability of taking some action to prevent the dumping of fruit  into Canada below coBt of production  was als0 disoussed.  County Court Sessions  Judge Swanson has been in town  during the past two days holding sessions of the County Court in the  Board of Trade room. The principal  case for hearing is one in which some  Hindoos are suing W. Ii. Stonohouse.  a rancher, near Kelowna, for money  under a crop sharing contract. Defendant's defence is that the Hindoos  failed to carry out their part of the  bargain and has also put in a contra  claim for damages alleged to be due  to such failure* The cobo was not  finished as we go to press, Mr. B.  B. Kerr iB outing on. behalf of .Mr.  Btonehouse, while Mr. E. C. Weddell  has charge of the case for the Hindoos.  Third Annuel Meeting nf  More Optimistic Tone Pervades Deliberations���Charges to  Growers Show Big Reduction���Unanimous Vote of  Confidence in  Manager Jackson  that fl better tone pervades the members was tho impression which might  have been gathered by an outsider at  the annual mooting of the local Ex-  change held last Friday in the Opera  Increased Duty on Apples  The new incrouso of duty from 10  to IK) cents per barrel on applet is  probably one of the most important  moves which have been made in con  neotion with the apf le business tor a  long time paat, and in this notion of  tbe country, where the increased protection thus afforded means so much,  the announcement has been received  with much satisfaction. It if the  opinion of practically ' U experienced  fruit men that it will have the most  far-reaching effect in putting the valley fruit business on a sound basis.  In fact as one shipper put it, "It is  like handing the grower's a cheque for  thousands ol dollars every year."  A commission consisting of Messrs.  W. C. Rioardo, president of the B. C.  Fruitgrowers' Association, E^ M. Pal-  met*, and B. H. Winslow recently formed a deputation to Ottawa to urge  the case ot the B. C. Fruitgrower, and  with such sucoess as that the increase  mentioned has been announced by the  Finance Minister, GSir Thomas Whits.  Farmers' Banquet Tonight  The first annual Farmer's Banquet  which is to be hold in Morrison's Hall  promises to be a great success. Tick-  eta havo sold well and it is anticipated that the hall will be well rilled.

It is safe  to say that the impression created Was  decidedly ��� favorable one. Ono misses  of course tho persuasive eloquence and  fighting qualities whicli distinguished  the former manager. Instead Mr. Jackson gives a senio of quiet energy and  business acumen, which leads to the  belief that if it is possible ut all success and efficiency will come to the  Okanagan L'nitod Growers.  The meeting commenced at 10 in the  morning, tho chair being taken by the  president, Mr. II. Francis, who like  many others in the room was in thai  uniform of His Majesty's forces.  The first business was to deal with  the report and bulance sheet for the  year, copies of which were in the  hands of the members.  Director's Report  In presenting this, the third annual  report, the directors, believed nil would  agree' that the your just finished had  been one of great success to all concerned.  Conditions had l>een fur from favor  able to the smooth working of any  business and manv concerns in all  parts of Canada n'lfl h*Mcl a bard strug  gle far existence.  In view of theso facts they wero of  opinion that the balance sheet and  reports mado a very satisfactory show  ing.  The amount of fruit und produce  handled, notwithstanding smaller crop  yields, showed an increase over last  year and on tho whole fair prices were  obtained. Expenses showed a very  healthy decrease and of course, these  wero the two salient \ o'nts- at which  they must direct their best efforts at  all times. ���  'Jho number of supporting members  was greater in the year just passed  than nt any time since tho exchange  began operations, and as a POnstfQjUenoo  the directors, with the very able and  wholehearted support of the manager  and his staff, had been enabled to  make good their promist ot a reduction on packing charges, which were  now as low aw 32J cents per bbx on  No. 1 npplrs and pears and a corres  ponding reduction had been made on  all other linos where possible.  When the exchange first started in  business in 1MB the charges, for No. 1  apples were 40 cents per box; this was  reduced to 35 cents in 1.H1 and today  stood at 32J cents.  It was interesting Ut note that on a  turnover of, for example. 100,000 boxes, this represented a direct saving to  tho members of $7,500, and with the  (���toyal support of the members there  waB oo reason why they could not  look forward to the day when they  could reduce this to u flat charge of  80 cents per box and possibly less.  This: tho statement pointed 'out  would put them in n very strong position, and if all worked together they  could attnin that position.  The members would be pleased to  know thut steps were now boinj: taken  to arrange for a more simple form of  "Accounts of Pales" to be rendered to  the growers. The present form had  been found to be too cumbersome and  intricate and involved nn extraordinary nmount of clerical work in tho  office. The (Central was alBo revising  pooling nrrangvmtnts. so that returns could bo made much more  promptly.  TJe information given by the Cen  tral during the pa��t year about    sell  ng prices had not proved at all satis  Detailed financial statements accompanied tho report. iho total revenue for the your from all sources had  bean $88,438.92. Of this ��31,803.51 had  been revenue from tho Bale of growers'  fruit and produce and 12,305.12 profit  on miscellaneous trading accounts.  The net profit on the year's business  had been $148.72.  In moving the adoption of the report  Mr. C. G. Buck, a member of tho executive said that the report before them  was a very complete one, being the  result of much work and forethought  and was designed to cover all tho  points upon which they as growers  Could desire information. He felt  that they oanld n'l congratulate themselves upon the excellent showing  made.  The directors were told very plainly  at the lust annual meeting, he said,  that they were expected to reduce om-  pehfles and handling charges, and bearing these pO-n a in minu, with the able assistance of the mvnigeg und his  staff, they wero in it posit im to come  before the members at that meeting  ^tjfid say they had fulfilled'their mandate.  It had not been very easy for they  had had keen opposition to contend  with, and he regretted to say that  some of the opposition had cora0 from  their own members. This was both  an, unfortunate and short-sighted  stand for the members to take, for,  and he wished to impress this fact upon his hearers' the cooperative system  of handling and marketing fruit and  produce as was being done by the Exchange allied to* the Central. Selling  Agency, was yearly more and more  the answer to the difficulties encountered in this respect in the past. Ho  admitted that there was still much  room for improvement, but they were  all learning your by year, and they  must surely all admit that much progress had been mode, in the year just  passed. 1914 and 1915 were two  difficult years in which to make much  headway, for reasons with which tbey  were all familiar, but despite'those ud  verse circumstances they had f,an<ed  ground in every way, except perhaps  prices obtained. . Heretofore they hod  not been able to make tho price, but  with the wholehearted support of oil  members, the day wouhl come when  thoy would he al le to dictate to a  largo extent the prices, at which produce should be sold. This matter of  support nnd unity was of such vital  interest to all that he could not bear  too sbrongly upon the necossity of  moral as well as material support to  the organization, for in it, he firmly  believed, lay their future success.  Dr. W. Wunsborough Jones seconded  the motion. He said that during the  year the directors had had constantly  in mind the instructions given to them  by the members nt tho last annual  meeting, and though th1-- perhaps had  not done everything that had been desired, yet ho could truthfully sav that  they . had at all times consistently  tried.  The exchange, he continued had now  l��en organized for three seasons and  tho timo had gone by now for discussing any theories of cooperation.  What they wanted now was results.  Were thev on ihe right track, nnd were  they making progress? He believed  that although they had not yet reacht  ed perfection, .yet they were making  very distinct progress.  During the year there had been a  considerable increase in the number of  contracting members, who now numbered about 200, a larger number than  Local Actors Will  Stage Play Next Week  Proceeds Will Be Donated to  Hospital and Patriotic Causes  A olav to be staged on Tuesday and  Wednesday of next week (Feb 29th and  March 1st) under the auspices of tho  lied Cross, tho Canadian Patriotic  Fund and Kelowna Hospital commit  toes.  ��� f>  Breathes there u man with soul so dead,  Who never to himself has suid  'This is my own, my native land.'  ��� *  There 'are not many of us here in  Kelownu, who have not, some on�� or  more of those nearest and nearest to  us, at present striving in fur-off Europe to uphold thu great principle of  right against might.'

Application can be made to Mr. Loveday at the Exchange, or to Mr. Lionel Taylor of the Farmers' Institute.  During the past fortnight four officials of tho department of agriculture  at Victoria have joined units preparatory to going overseas. The call of  duty was too loud to be prolonged,  with the result that now the 6th Can*  dian Garrison Artillery is four men  stronger, by the., addition of Messrs.  Henry Rive, Wm. Newton, G. L. Foulkes, and W. II. Robertson, who have  been connected with the department  for some time. They ore now in  training at Work I'oint Barracks taking the course of instruction before  leaving with a draft for duty in  France.  Henry Hive, the popular chief dairy  instructor, is known throughout the  province as an expert in his line, and  his advice is always sought by dairymen when any perplexing problem has  to l>e met. Be has been the secretary of the B. ('. Dairyman's Association for five years, or since lie joined  tho department. Mr. Rive came to  Canada from the Jersey Islands where  ho waB born.

Wm. Newton, who has been on the  department for two years, is a graduate of Macdonald College, Quebec,  where he completed his agricultural  education, the practical sido of which  had been gained on his father's farm  not a great distance from Montreal,  the city of his birth. Mr. Newton has  don�� not a little in helping the farmers of the province with th��f soil and  crop troubles.  G. L. Foulkes, the well known tennis player, who has fiUed the difficult  and at times laborious position of secretary of tho horticultural brauoh, had  the misfortune to be laid down with  an attack of !,, grippe, just after joining the 5th, but his many friends will  be glad to know that he has complete-  ly^reeovered. Mr. Foulkes has been  on the department for the past five  years, his previous work amongst the  fruit growers of eastern Canada end  British Columbia well fitting him for  this position. *  W. H. Robertson, the assistant hor-  ticulturalist who iB Bo well liked by all  the -fruit growers on the lower mainland and Vancouver Island, is the  fourth member to wear the uniform of  the King duriTig th? past two weeks.

Speaking of the progress made in  marketing. Dr. .Jones pointed out inat  while in 1914 a large proportion of  the produce had been sold on consign*  ment, during tho past year only 7  per oent. of the produce had been so  sold. He defined consignment broadly as shipping produce away to jobbers without having previously placed  uny price upon it. Of that 7 per :ent  mentioned twelve-seventeenths, si-  though actually leaving Vernon without an agreed price, had hud a price  pluced upon it before reaching lb.1  agent. So that strictly speaking* only about 2 per cent., had been sold o��  consignment.  In accordance with the wishes of tho  members, continued the Doctor, a general attempt had been maoV to got  tho good* direct to the retail trade  and about 13 per Cent; of the produce  had been sold in that way. It was  only fair to point out, however, that  this part of the business had shown  ttie least profit. The ntulT cost u  good deal more to handle, and it was  very difficult to make collections. Nevertheless, the directors had boon trying  to do what had been asked of them.  There had been q great deal of complaint last year about so much produce being sold through tho brokers,  and thero Certainly had been a great  deal sold in that way. Practically  all of the consigned fruit was haudlotl  by brokers. During tho [vast year 69  I-er cent., of the produce had been disposed of directly from the Vernon office or by their own agents.  Coming to tho cost of selling  through the Cm* ml, the speaker point  ed out that the total coBt had been  $58,000 or on\- 0 per cent in comparison with 12.", per cent in 1914, This  meant ��� saving of 3J, per cent, which  was a very Considerable reduction.  When it whs remembered that all the  world over 10 per cent, was considered  a reasonable cost of soiling, it could  be seen that this was very good indeed. It was quite probable too that  even this low cost could bo reduced  fttill further, by bringing Into the Central a larger volume of business,  Xhe*e facts, eott.-luded Dr. Jones weflg  very encouraging, and showijA that  they wero indeed making progress. It  was only by uniting and working together that success would ultimately  be achieved.  A gcttera] discussion then followed in  which manv-speakers took part.  Mr. J. Scott, who had recently returned from a visit to the prairie,  pointed out that retailers there were  selling No. 1 and No. 2 apples at th  same price without any distinction. He  said that when he tried to buy apples  down there it seemed us if he were  buying gold bricks, but when he got  back again it was a different story,  (laughter),   '  Mr. L. E. Taylor complained that  he had been badly misled by the published selling price of some produce.  He instanced peas, of which* he had  shipped a large quantity. From the  information given him he had imagined these wero selling for 8 cents per  pound, but when his returns came in  some months after he found that the  price realized would not .payfor picking. He wished to know why he had  not been in'ortned of the fact so as  1 to stop shipping when >the price fell.  It was admitted that in regard to  certain lines of garden truck the system of distributing   information torn  the Central office had not worked suc-  oaaafuHy.  A suggestion from Mr. Peter Casor-  so that a central distributing warehouse be opened in Calgary, led to a  discussion on thc possibility of "Uttiug  out the expense of middlemen by marketing direct.  Mr. J. E. Reekie *aid the matter had  been gone into very carefully moral  times, and though he did not claim  that such a policy might not be necessary some day, ho did nut think it  could bo done with success at the pic-  sent time.  For one thing a large amount ol  capital would be required to embark  upon such a scheme, and it was questionable oven then if they iould sell  thoir own produce eheaper Wio what  the wholesaler could do it for them.  It was impossible to market *. I art of  their produce in that way, UI they  could not sell to both wholesalers anJ  retailors at tho same limo. If ihey  sold to retailers the wholesale men  men would Ik* at once antagonized.  The motion to adopt the report and  balance sheet as road was passed  shortly before lunch and nominations  wero also received for the board of  directors for the ensuing year.  Upon reassembling at 1 o'oloek the  bnlloting was at once proceeded with  and the following were declared elected:  11. Mugford. ('. C. Prowse.  C. E. Koekic. C, E. Weeks.  M. Hereron. L. Dilworth.  G. L. Allen.  Tribute to Late Fruit Inspector  A sympathetic reference was m:td> by  Mr. L. E. Taylor to tho death of Mr.  Thos. Cunningham, provincial fruit inspector. Mr. Cunningham, he "aid,  had been the fruit grower's best friend  and during his long residence in the  province, had dono all -he could I  further thoir interests. Me moved the  following resolution, which was unanimously passed by the meeting, all  standing. "That this mooting of the  Kelowna Growers' Exchange bogs to  express its hearty sympathy with Mrs.  Cunningham and family in their bereavement, and to express their appreciation of tho service rendered by  the late Mr. Cunningham on behalf ot  tho fruitgrowers of the province since  the inception of the industry."  The New Duty on Fruit  Mayor Jones moved that a r.solution be sent to the government expressing appreciation for their action  in increasing the duty on fruit from  40 to 90 cents per barrel  Mr. J ones said ho did not think th  growers had quite realized yet th  great advantugo to them of the change  which had increased the duty on an-  pies from 40 cents to 90 cents per barrel, or as we hero shipped in boxes,  from 13) to 30 cents per box. This'mi.  should have the effect of amply pro- ti  touting the Okanagan fruit industry  from the keen Americnn competition  from thc south. He referred to the  extensive nature of that competition,,  pointing out that fully a million dollars worth of apples wero imported into Canada.' each year. Tho increased  duty should enable the B. C, growers  to capture tho Vancouver market.  Over a thousand1 cars were shipped  each year into western Canada and  80 per cent of this was on consignment, shipped in such a way nB to  avoid tho Dumping Act. The competition from the other side was growing rapidly in extent. In 1913 the  United States had 48,000 acres in  bearing fruit; in 1916 they have 180,-  000, and. it was estimated that by  1990 they would have 308,000 acres of  trees six years old and over. They  were producing more than their own  market could consume. In Canada  we were not producing any more than  we could hen lie fiml we wanted to  conserve our market.  Mr. J. E. Reekie seconded the resolution. He said he thought tt was  quite in order to sond such a resolution to tho government. Suck (, measure had certainly not been placed upon the statute books without ft gr%t  deal of serious thought and consideration. Whilst we as fruitgrowers wanned all the protection we could get, ho  thought the government must havo  had no lack of .ourage to pass Bitch a  measure in face of tho probable opposition from the consumer. The fact  that they had passed an act bo beneficial to the fruitgrowers should encourage thorn to go forth with greater effort than ever. There was another serious matter which should bo  looked into and that was the question  of the water supply. Stops should bo  taken to make this more secure, a&the  present conditions of the water companies constituted a serious danger to  fruitgrowers.  This latter suggestion waB embodied  in a resolution passed later, and, moved by Mr. T. 'Buiman, urging the government to take immediate steps to  improve conditions of water supply.  Mr. Leigh of Rutland raised a discussion on the matter of guaranteeing  to restore to his situation any employee leaving to enliflt with the fore-  ROVAH  YEAST  MAKES PERFECT BREAD  tnodiiied form was eventually passed.  "That . any employee of the Kelowna  Growers' Exchange enlisting with the  forces should he givt a preference on  returning and apply'nj for his job."  On the suggestion of Mr, J. Scott a  resolution was passed "that the B, P.  government be re pleated to urge upon  the C.N.I... 'h' Immediate eons ruction of tho Kamloops-rtelowna branch  railway/'  Some discussion took p'u<v upon p.0  remuneration of dlractora and executive. Last year ��� vote of M.OOO had  been made, the directors to receive  payment ;it the rata of 83 per roe ling  and the baianoe to be divided among  the executive, it was suggested by  Mr. It. A. Copeland that the payment  of #1 a meeting was insnlueient. but  it was finally decided1 to vote the Hr  000 UB before nn 1 leave the apportioning of it to the board.  Manager Jaokson  As this practically concluded th ��� actual business of the meeting Mr. F. E.  JaekBon, the manager of the United  Growers' was asked to address the  members.  The 1915 season, he said had boon  ono of many difficulties for the management of the Central,  The vegetable market was extremely  unsatisfactory. Tho fruit market was  always near the edge of a general consignment market. Kin ino'tal c. ndi-  tlons were precarious, and buyers who  in previous years bought freely, in  L915 bought sparingly) and with e\-  irotne caution. Markets were easily  overloaded and a large number ot ths  dealers were uncertain friends as they  wero refusing lo buy in the hope that  they could forco a free and general  movement on a consignment basis. All  shippers, Central. included, wore at  times compell-jd to ship on Open BO-  count.  He had no criticism to make regarding any of their competitors. In this  business with frequent <hunges there  were bound to be conflicts in prices,  and except for the fact that their organization kept them better informed  as to the general marketing conditipni  they wero as likely to err as their  competitors. Th-y wore on friendly  terms with all shippers and fvtt that  every effort should bo put forward to  enable everyone to obtain thl best  possible value for his shipments. They  must realize that it was to their advantage to have their competitors sell  their output advantageously. 1 here  was any excuse for a co opera*  inoern refusin r lo.o - op rate with  its competitors.  It might not be out of place, continued Mr. Jaokson, to warn growers  that vegetable markets wore exceedingly small and would not absorb large  quantities of highly perishable vegetables at C.P.lt. prices. The season of  1916 might be (l good ona for vegetables of the more staple kinds, but the  consumer is not buying, luxuries freely under present condition) and besides  thg population of our cities is decreasing.  Heretofore they have had Valley  Pools. Valley pools were nicer for  the Central and the manager. They  prevented any accusation of unfairness  but they nlso prevented them from  shipping a grade as high as their  competitors. A proper definition of a  valley pool was "q scheme for drown  ing district individuality." It was  the lust scheme-that Central should encourage. The climate, growing, grad  ing and packing all offered opportunities for any district to attain points  of advuntnge over other fruit of the  same variety grown in other districts.  Why.drown them in a valley pool?  They must recognize the fact that the  fruit business was their principal' reliance, and thev- must handle it better  than they hud dono heretofore if they  were to increase their volume. Tho  locals furnished tho volume ho they  must make it possible for them to  meet competition at home.  Whilst the principle of the resolution  met with general approval this was  considered a little too drastic, and   a  Change in  Pooling System  In 1916 valley pools would be discarded and district poo's substituted  therefore. Salmon Ann, Tappen, En-  derby, an 1 Armstrong would be one  pooling district; Vomon another division, and Kelowna, Veachland, Summerland and Penticton the third district. This division grouped locnls  growing similar products and would  raise tho standard of their shipments as a whole. This change in  pooling would increase work on their  pooling books, but would on the whole  moan quicker returns to the grower.  Mr. Jackson urged the necessity for  careful handling of fruit at all stages.  Careful handling meanB the elimination of many losses due to decay. It  Was not a matter of attention to one  or a few details of the handling problems, but of exercising in all operations tho utmost care consistent with  commercial     work.      It    necessitated  (Continued on Fntre 8.,  isnaiciiiiifsic^^  Random Remarks 1  By the "Chiel" |  ' A duel's amang ye takin' iu lei,     S  t^       And feth he'll print them."

ANNUL MEETING OF  GROWERS' EXCHANGE  (Continued from Page Two)  thorough organization of labor and  the most careful inflection of work  both is the field and at the packing  houses. To�� many growers failed to  realize that under modern conditions  of hand liny of long distance shipmentB<  and oT rolling ^ perishable commodity  the marketing of fruit in sound condition was aa essential to success as its  production. Shipments arriving at  destination in poor or a decayed condition frequently demoralized a market. There was not only the direct  loss of fruit through decay, but the  indirect losses due first to depreciation  in prices for fruit actually sound, second, to a poor reputation for keeping  quality and third, to the nigh overhead expense of handling a perishable  product which develops great waste  and spoilage in transit und alter arrival at the market. If a crop of  fruit was completely picked at one  time the shipment represented extreme  staged in maturity. This meant abnormal deterioration and a poor reputation for the keeping qualities of  their fruit.  'Ilie operation oi the Central in IV16  would provide, for more efficiency and  a reduction in expenses of doing business. They had provided for systema*  tic and scientific loading of various  commodities in all seasons. 'Ihis would  increase sales by providing a better?  product, at destination and; meant less  claims and allowances for bad order  shipments. All important shipping  points would doubtless have Dominion  government inspectors to pass on  grade and maturity. Their own inspection would [be moro painstaking and  efficient than in 1915. It was cheaper  to have fruit rejected at home than  in Winnipeg, especially after adding an  icing and heavy freight oharge to the  low grade commodity.  In the scientific distribution of any  commodity if that product is standard, consumption of that product is  increusod. The jobber oould afford to  handle it on a smaller margin because  it sells more readily than similar  goods not of a uniform standard. The  retailor could afford to sell it on a  smaller margin also because he sold  more und had less waste. This meant  a higher price to the producer and a  smaller price to the consumer.  1916 Promises Better Results  The apple crop in i910 promised u,  large increase over 1915, continued Mr.  Jackson, but with some increase in  their selling organization he thought  it quite probable that the Central  would make a better comparative  showing of re. nils than in 1915. Their  export business would show higher  average prices than in 1915. The  prairie provinces, with on unusual ly  heavy snowfall this winter, promised  another good grain crop. This should  increase their mixed car business. The  more mixed cars they could ship to  counti points the better their prices  would be to the grower.  Eighty per cent of all fruit planted  in the Wenatchee district consisted of  six varieties of apple*. Winesapa were  by far the favorites with 29.3 per oent;  Jonathan with 14.9 per ant. was next.  the remaining four varieties of the six  were Delicious, tipiteenberg, Staynian  Winesap and Home Beauty. No other  variety represented two par cent. This  indicated that the older apple growing  districts were eliminating ., great many  varieties and were, confining their or-  charge to varieties that were staple  and the best sellers. The varieties in  this valley especially in the section  with the older plantings were entirely  too heavy with the early winter varieties.  The total sales of the Okanagan  United Growers in 1914 wero $304,000.  The total sales of the Okanagan United Growers in 1916 was increased to  $65-1,000. This covered fruit arid produce shipped, but did not include fruit  or supplies sold to locals. Central  charges in 1915 provided for a reduction in handling charges as compared  with 1914, and proposed changes lor  1916 showed a further reduction of  over 2 cents a box on apples.  To handle tho Vernon office, to make  all sales, including all expenses of the  Central excepting the purely merchandise charges of freight and assembling,  cost 9.5 cents per dollar. In 1014 the  same coat was 12.4. The difference in  cost of doing business in 1915 as compared with 1914 was 2.9 cents per  dollar, or a reduction in coot of doing  business of nearly 25 *tm oent. In  1916 they hoped to further reduce tho  ratio of expense per' dollar.  The Central handling charges had  been simplified and reduced to cover  operations in 1916. The principal reduction had been mods on apples and  would average over two cents per box  on thoir shipments. This represented  a considerable saving to the   grower.  Speaking of the Kelowna Exchange,  Mr. Jackson said: "I wish to acknowledge a heavy obligation to the manager of your local for the manner iD  which he has co-operated with the  Central.. It has been hearty and Com  plete. We have dealt with your local  in the same manner. Your representatives on the board and executive have  been of great assistance in conduct of  the Central and the manager has been  compelled fro^u'nLly to rely on tneir  practical advice."  The general business impression of a  co-operative organization, he continued, was on unfavorable one because  it was felt they did not measure up  to private firms in general business efficiency, Lack of business efficiency in eo-operativ'e firms was caused by lack of cooperation among its  component parts. Every employer  judges his employees by their ability  co-operate. Subordinates progress,  other things being equal, according to  their capacity and willingness to cooperate. Executives retain their positions only if they co-operate successful  ly with otlter executives and maintain  co-operation among, their * workers.  Since, therefore, co-operation is essential, common sense dictates that it  should be heurty and complete. The  Central organization und all locate  were now fully co-opoiatinp' in every  way and the prospect .'for real efficiency had never been so bright as at the  present time.  Mr- Jackson created some amusement by the remark that- no position  was over-invented that contained so  much genuine; concentrated trouble  and worry as his present position-  Even the directors did not escape. The  grower was apt to be critical. He  was not originative. With a fuller  knowledge of their difficulties he was  sure the growers would feel lesB critical and therefore more helpful.  "As manager of the Central," concluded Mr. Jackson, "I desire results.  I have no desire for publicity. I think  there is tt Ben i'ble v�� by which each  local and Central can in teamwork  with fullest confidence, obtain results  for the grower. lei me assure the  shareholders of this local that they  and the entire organization will receive my l>est efforts during the year."  I    Scarcity of Packers  Mr. T. Barber of Rutland, touched  upon an important matter by pointing  out tho probuble scarcity of packers  next yoar due to so many young men  enlisting. If something were not done  he said the growers might easily find  thomselves practically ut the mercy  of Orientals, who could hold them up  for Qny concessions they liked.  He moved the following resolution:  That whereas large numbers of Orientals are employed in our packing  houses at good wages; and whereas although the government has been holding packing schools for a number of  years without sensibly improving the  situation; and whereas a very large  number of young people) who should  be taking up this work are leaving  our public schools every your without  any technical training and going directly into the ranks of unskilled labor; therefore be it resolved that we  urge upon the government the necessity of taking immediate steps to [Hve  tho senior classes in nil the schools  of the province an opportunity of securing training in the packing of  fruit."  Mr. L. E. Taylor pointed out .that  it was not from lack of opportunity  that more people were not learning  packing. Schools were being provided  by the government and every effort  made to secure pupils, but it seemed  difficult to do so. The trouble was  that the boys and girlii would not  take advantage of the opportunity offered them.  Several speakers were doubtful as  to the wisdom of advocating any interference with the present school  curriculum, and the resolution being  put to the meeting was voted down-  Before the meeting broke up Mr.  J. E. Reekie said he would like to  have plaoed upon record the members'  appreciation of the services of tho  mombers of the board who were retiring from office. Two of them had  enlisted and Dr. W. W. Jones and Mr.  Buck had not> been reelected. The two  latter especially had done a great deal  towards the development of 1'ieir organization. Dr. Jones had been invaluable in the councils of the Central us  well ,os the local organization, and he  did not think all the members (jlito  realized tho loss to the Central in being deprived of his services. He proposed-that the thanks of the meeting  be given to them.  Mr. Geo. MoKenzie suggested that  the resolution lie enlarged tr include  all the board of 1915, including Mr.  Reekie himself, and also a vote of con  fidence in Manager Jackson of the Central.  This was passed enthusiastically and  the meeting dispersed.  Department of Agriculture;;  Issuing New Bulletin  The provincial department of agriculture has now on th�� press, Bulletin  No. 68, entitled "Diseases and Pests  of Cultivated Plants in B. ('., and  their control," which has been p. chared by Messrs. J. W. Eastnam, IJ.Sc,  provincial plant* pathologist and entomologist, and Max H. Ruhmann, a*  sistant entomologist.  This bulletin will fill a long felt  want, because the authors have spent  much time on experimental work in  British Columbia, and are thoroughly  conversant with thc problems of the  fruit growers and orchardists.  There is also a short article on  sprays and spraying, by Ben Hoy, the  assistant horticulturist for the Okanagan district, which has appeared in  print before, but as this is such an  important part of the work of the  fruit growers, it is reprinted in this  bulletin.  Requests for this bulletin should be  sent in to the department now.  STOCKBREEDERS' ASSOCIATION  CONVENTION NEXT MONTH  The annual convention of. the B- C.

In tile first game, which was mention  ed in last week's "Becord" when tlie  score was given as 7 to 3 in favor of  the Vernon team the boys were severely handicapped by the soft ice and  were hampered by stiff musoles to a  considerable extent, owing to the stren  uoas workout at basketball, whieii  had been indulged in the previous  day, bringing int0 play an entirely different set of muscles to those used in  lor a game of hookey, and it was impossible for some of them to get up  to their usual speed until the game  was well under way. Vernon won bow-  ever but the victory was far from being as decisive as the eoore would  indicate, as during the last period of  play, the goal keeper for the local boys  allowed three easy shots to roll unmolested into the nets, thus making it  appear that the boyB were outclassed.  The game scheduled to take place  at Armstrong on Thursday night did  not come off owing to ihe northern  town informing the boys the ioe was  not fit for play, *,, arrangements were  immediately made for the Kelowna  boys to play Vernon again on Friday  night. This was done and in th'is  game the final score was tie with four  goals each, '  In this contest the condition of the  ioe kept Kelowna from winning, as  time after time the Kelowna forwards  broke through the opposing defence  but were unable to oarry the puck into  a position to shoot on the soft ice  before the players of the other side  (unhampered by following the puok)  ooxld overtake them. In this reepeot  Walter Baymer starred, but his efforts  were fruitless in the slush.  ,  The line up of the team was somewhat different from the first game and  the work of the boys was highly complimented by the Vernon spectators,  the work of the entire team und that  of A.

Never leave it full-  cocked. If it has a half-cock leave it  alwuys on the half-cock. This position is made for safety, use it. If you  want to see whether your rifle is clean  open the breech wide and place a piece  of clean writing paper, bo that it will  completely cover the firing pin, and  presses against the head of the bolt.  Now turn the breech of your rifle to.  wards the light and look down the  muz/le, the inside of which whould  have a silvery color, if any rust is visible remove it by a "pull through" or  a wire cleaning rod with a wire brush  or rag dipped in coal oil. at the end;  lastly wipe the barrel dry with a new  dry rag. See that your breech, hammer and trigger are always well oiled  and working easily; take care of your  side lights and if your rifle, is equipped  with sight protectors, keep them on.  If your trigger pulls off too easily  have it fixed*properly by some gunsmith.  When firing don't pull the trigger  with your firing finger, but press it  off, by squeezing the small of the  butt and slowly contracting your trigger finger, if you pull the trigger off  you are very apt to move the gun  while firing; your gun whould be cleaned immediate,y after filing, even an  hour's delay is some delicate rifles is  apt to cause the powder to cake in  the grooves and this will become hard  to remove, and if not removed it will  corrode the barrel: keep your rifle dry  and so evade its greatest enemy, rust;  never clean your "rifle with emery clotli  or sand paper: what you need fpr  cleaning purposes are a cleaning rod,  plug, wire-brush, pull through, . Some  cotton waste or clean rag, and a bottle of "Three-in-One Oil."  Never leave a gun loaded, or leave  H with the cartridges near it, for  some children might load it if they  saw the cartridges there. If you pick  up a gun hold the 'barrel,to the  ground and see if it is loaded, even  if you are sure it is empty.- Lastly  take care to get no mud, sand, or  even snow into the barrel, for the gun  when fired in this state, will explodo  and probably injure you seriously.

O   SOME STATISTICS OF A GROWING  MOVEMENT  Evangelist E. R. Potter of the Seventh-day Adventist denomination has  just received a report from the statistical secretary of that body located at  the world's headquarters of the church  in Washington, ]).(.'.  One of the remarkable statements in  the report is, that "The actual net  gain in membership for the year 1914  was greater than the entire membership oi the denomination throughout  the world as it stood thirty years after this movement had begun its work-  The report says further: "At the  close of 1914, the total mem  bership was 125,844, a gain during th.  year of 11,287, and ^he number of  baptisms during the year .Vi�� lacking  one of 15,000.  "The amount of money raised is offerings to foreign missions in the  North American division was $615,  5G5.95; the membership in this division  is 72,015. This amount is therefore  an average of $8.56 for each member.  The significance of this last amount  will be better understood when it is  explained that the latest available reports indicate that for 1913 the average per capita contributions on the  part of the members of all the protes  tunt bodies in the L'nited States was  63 cents. '   .  The figures ranged from 91.93, the  highest, for the Moravian bodies to  twenty-one eenfs per member for the  lowest.  "The number of organized churches  at thc close of 1914 was 3,702, a gain  during the year of 113.  "This work is now being carried forward in 87 different countries, 46 of  which- are non-Protestant and 20 non-  Christian countries.  "The force of laborers is comprised  of the following: 926 ordained ministers; 565 licensed ministers; 1,454 licensed missionaries; 2,076 colporteurs;  292 secretaries; making a total of  5,313 evangelistic laborers.  "Other laborers are engaged in (liferent lines as follows: Teachers in  mission schools, primary schools and  colleges, 1.616; employed in publishing  houses, 735; in sanitariums and treat'  ment rooms, 1.696; a total of 4,047 in  stitutional laborers. If to this we  add the 5,313 evangelistis laborers  there is secured a grand total of 9,-  360 laborers engaged in all lines of  denominational work, or one laborer  to every thirteen members.  "The total funds contributed for  evangelistic work by members of the  denomination during 1914^ were $3,090,-  484.80 a per capita  of 324.56.  "During the fifty-two years since  this work has been organized there has  been contributed for evangelistic work  alone, $31,075,894.76.    ��� -  "Not on^jdollar of this amount has  been raised by church socials, or suppers, or fairs or the like means. 56.84  per oent of the fundB contributed laBt  year'were from the payment of tithe,  and the balance was given through the  Sabbath schools and other free will  offerings.

This Convention, it is expected, will  eclipse any yet held by the fruit growers, because of the important work  done by the executive in bettering  transport nt ion fticilitieK. in securing  an increased duty on apples, find in  advertising the products al tlie province to tha ccnuiming public on the  prairi m and ut the coast. The memlber-  nliip o| the associasion is nt present  the largest in its history, despite the  fact that 60 many growers have enlisted.  A number of men prominently identified with the induntr,. throughout Canada, will be heard at the convention,  while a number of the outstanding figures in provincial fruit circles will be  heard on the'subjects with which they  will deal in a comprehensive way.  J. B. Musselman, general secretary  of the Saskatchewan Grain Ckowers'  Association, will address the convention. Mr. Musselman is one of the  marketing experts of the prairie provinces, and has had much experience in  selling to the farmers and to their  organizations. F. 1). Nicholson, president, of the Okanagan t'nited Growerb,  will tell of tho work of that organization during the year ?nd how the  fruit of that famous valley was marketed in 1915.  One of the most important items on  the program is the report of Messrs.  W. 0. Ricardo, R. M. Palmer and R.  M. Winel'ow, who were instrumental in  a large degree in furthering th! interests of the B. C. Growers' at Ottawa  prior to Sir Thos. White increasing  the duty on apples.  Others who will be heard on matters  of so much interest to the fruit growers of B. C, are A. H. Flack, Chief  Prairie Fruit Inspector, of Winnipeg,  and Edwin Smith, pre cooling expert  of Ottawa. Mr. Flack haB made an  extensive study of fruit marketing,  mosi suitable packages for different  fruits and their standardization, and  his address will most likely prove one  of the most interesting of the corner  tioD.

I4p  MISCELLANEOUS  "Is    Saturday    or   Sunday   .h  Sabbath?" was the subject of u   't��er-  mon-lecture,"  which was discussed lor  an hour    and a half    in the Rutland  Methodist church by tho pastor,    Mr.  Tann.T.     After staling carefully     the  position of the  Saturday  Sabbathari-  ans the subject was treated from three  position of the Saturday Sabbath or-  iaus the subject was treated from three  standpoints;   (1)   Biblical;  (2)   Historical; and (3) Practical diilicultiee of the  Sabbath    position.      (1).   The change  iVi'in  the Jewish   Sabbath was shown  to have been made to the Lord s day  by reason of    the abrogation entirely  of the     Old  Covenant  or     agreement  with the race and the substitution entirely of the New  Covenant or agreement, substituting "Grace" for "Law"  (2). That  the old  agreement contained  two distinct elements;  viz.  a temporal    and    an eternal element.     (8).  J hat     the temporul  element  vanished  away entirely.  (4).  That  thj    eternal  element was reenacted and extended by  Jesus Christ who is the head of   Idl-  "new  creation."      (5).  That all     the  commandments were reenacted by -Jesus     Christ    except  that  fourth,  "Six  days shall thou labor .... But the  seventh is the Sabbath etc."   [$', That  the temporality    even of    the    fourth  commandment was shown by its being  adapted    only to a mild climate     by  reason of its no labor provisions now  impossible, e.g., that no lire should be  lighted on     the Sabbatli day; and by  its  recognition  of  slavery,   "thy   man  slave or  thy  maid  slave,"  for     oth.T  conditions of slavery see Ex. 21.   (T).  That the reasons specifically for    ihe  change from the 7th to tlie 1st    day  were;  (a)  the     desire to coimneimirate  our  Lord's  resurrection on  that  day,  a custom which     Christ himself     immediately endorsed as well as the apostles afterward; the endorsution is attested in the writings of the Father of  the Bub-apostolic age; (b) that on the  first day of the week the Holy  Spirit  came upon     the church  ut  Pentocjst,  (c) that the claims of the seventh day  belonged to the superseded old  -Agreement,     (d) that the agreement huving  lapsed its    distinctive  "signs"      must  also be taken away;    Thc sign* of the  old covenant were three. Circumcision.  The Passover,  und the  Sabbath; that  these were changed to the three    distinctive    signs    of the new covenant,  Baptism, The Lord's  Supper and  Lord's Day.  sal practise of the three great branch- J  ee of Christendom: Greek, Roman and  Protestant, of a first day Sabbath  was discussed an I it was shown that  while the Roman church might have  changed Protestant practise, it was  impossible to have done so with the  custom of the Greek church which has  continuously throughout all Kb history observed only the first day Sabbath.  It was shown that the claims that  the change was made at the Counoil of  Laodicea by the Papacy is impossible  since the Papacy did not administer  and had no authority in the council  of Luodieea. It was a Greek church  council, held about 1000 miles east of  Koine and the Greek language was  used in its discussions.  And lastly the practical difficulty  .vas sJhuwti of    observing a  Saturday  Sabbath by one travelling round the  world. Travelling east to west, one  would, while observing every seventh  day, by losing a daj arrive back in  B. ('. on th:- Lord's day, the first day  of the week and willy ni'ly would be  a Lord's Day Sabbatharian  NO 1 ICE OF ASSIGNMENT!  WAVfE* TO EXCHANGE 160 acre  t>i land in Saskatchewan.
