 m  dotom lUtvvb  I VioW"*' "���"'  VOL. X.   NO. 41  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY, AUGUST 29, 1918.���4 PAGES  Steamship Strike  Has Been Called Off  Owners Agree to Recognize  Merchant Service Guild  News that th'. steamship strike,  whioh was on the eve of tying up  Kelowna'c only mean* of communication wit's the outside world,  was really off and that the dispute  between owners and men was  practically settled, was received  by fruit growers and shippers ���  especially tlie latter���with a huge  sigh of relief.  A week or two ago the possibil- i  ity .of a strike was raised by the  refusal of the o wners of jvessels to  recognize the ' Merchant Service  Guild, but when a royal commission was appointed people thought  the thing as good as settled and  ceased to worry about it. A few  days ago,, however, the trouble  came up again worse than ever,  precipitated by the sudden withdrawal in disgust, of the representative of the men from the commission, he having been convinced  that the ownera did not intend to  recognize the Association no matter what the finding of the commission might be.  The Guild  decided  for   quick  action and arranged for an immediate tie-up of service  by  all captains and mates sending  in  forty-  eight hours notice of resignation.  This was done and since Saturday  paralysis of shipping which started  at the coast and cut off freight and  passenger transport between Vancouver, Seattle, Victoria and other  points, haa gradually been extend-  ding to the interior lake services.  According to official advice service  of all kinds on the Okanagan Lake  was to cease yesterday.  -  Once  it  was realized  that the  strike  was really going   to   take  place, a meeting was called in the  Board of-Trade room Saturday of  canners, shippers and others concerned,and the situation discussed,  Mr. J. W. Jones, M.L.A., presided,  and he was charged with the duty  of wiring the following urgent message to the Hon. Martin Burrell:  " Representatives of all local fruit ahipping interests met  this afternoon re masters  and  mates strike.    Necessary for  government to act quickly and  decisively   adjusting   dispute,  otherwise thousands of dollars  perishable fruits will Jbe  lost.  Growers and shippers much  alarmed.

There are now'five young ladies  at Mrs. W. Gay's, Miss Olive Gray  of Vancouver, being the latest  arrival.  Mrs. Bromley Browne, of Kelowna, is at present atnying with  her mother, Mrs. Hardie, to recuperate after an operation for appendicitis.  Miss Margaret Pennington, prin-  cipel of Rutland school, and her  sister Grace, returned from the  coast last week, having spent a  very pleasant holiday at the camp  of the Y.W.C.A. at Whitecliff.  There will be Harvest Festival  at the Methodist church on September I5te. The choir will render  special music assisted by Miss  Dalzell and Misa Tully.  Mr.  Tom Morrison went down  to Vancouver yesterday,  o  Shooting Season Opens  September 14th  More Offenders Against  Automobile Laws  Police Continue Effort to Enforce Regulations  $130 Per Annum  The hew game regulations for  the present season have now been  posted giving the dates of the open  season for various classes, of game.  Those in which sportsmen of this  district are most concerned, are as  follows ;���  Deer (all kinds, over one year),  Sept. 14th to Dec. 15th.  Bear, open season to June 30, '19  Ducks, Sept. 14th to Dec: 15th.  Grouse, Sept. 14th to Oct. 31st.  Pheasants. There has been  some misunderstanding regarding  the shooting of pheasants in this  district, and in last week's issue, by  stating that there was no open  season for pheasants here, we  doubtless added to the misunderstanding instead of helping to  clear it up. Permission has been  given to shoot cock pheasants only  for a period of two weeks from  Oct. 26th to Nov. 8th, the bag  being limited to six birds. When  this intention of the government  became known efforts were made  by several local sportsmen to have  it rescinded, fearing the extinction  of these birds which have only  lately begun to establish themselves here. Apparently their efforts were too late to have effect,  and the order stands.   o.  A further batch of offenders  against automobile regulations were  brought up in the city police court  during the past lew days and had  to pay fines of various amounts as  a penalty for the infraction of the  law.  On Saturday night Geo. Allen  and Leslie Dilworth were both  detected travelling without rear  tights, and, aa they could not very  well do anything else, pleaded  guilty and each paid a fine of $5  and costs. J. H. Trenwith was  Brought up on a like charge, but  he pleaded not guilty, claiming that  his rear light had been burning all  the time. Investigation, however,  showed that the glass of the lamp  was so encrusted with mud that  it failed to perform its office of  illuminating the rear number. He  was let off with paying $2.50 costs.  Archie Johnson this morning  made his second appearance inside  of a week. Last Thursday he paid  a fine of $5 and costs for having  no rear light. This morning he  had to pay $ 10 and costs for speed  ing. Next week���oh, well, never  mind.  Good Roads League  to Meehilt Penticton  Will Push for Better System of  Provincial Highways  Interest Being Revived  in Kelowna's Fall Fair  Committee Expecting Greatly  Increased Entry List  Compiling Register for  Sheep Men  keted in large qualities. Urge  quick action.   J. (V. JOs^ES.' , ,������,-,,,,  The reply received Monday w* in The. 'nter'��r ���� B.C. Wool Grow.  as follows :���    l^^^^^^^^^mu  J. W. Jones, M.L.A.,  Kelowna  "Your wire and wires from  Kelowna  Packers,   Ltd.,  Mr.  Sutherland and others received.   You   may  rest  assured  government doing everything  possible.   Prime Minister had  only been in Ottawa an hour  on his return from England  when the strike question was  considered thoroughly by cabinet. Understand statement is  to be   issued  by companies  this morning and it is hoped  that traffic will be resumed at  early moment.    Quite realize  seriousness of this "to Okanagan fruit district and most  anxious to do anything to assist.   Please advise others of  this.   MARTIN BURRELL  In order to minimize the loss by  perishable  fruit  and   vegetables  remaining on their hands, the packing firms began to work feverishly  to get shipments  off before  the  boat and barges ceased running,  and in consequence, the exports at  once showed a sharp upward curve,  and the faces of the express officials and deck hands a decidedly  downward one. -"  However, the strike is off, and  this whirlwind business is no longer necessary. Premier Borden, who  had been in Canada on his return  from the old country only a few  hours, was able to wire the president of the Merchant Service Guild  that the companies were willing to  grant recognition on the same  terms aa given to the guild in  England, This at once cleared  ed the air, recognition being the  chief point of dispute, and made  possible an immediate resumption  era' Association is compiling a  register of sheep owners having  rams, ewes or lambs for sale, and  rancbers desirous of purchasing  sheep. Those falling within either  class should communicate at once  with the secretary-treasurer, C. E.  Lawrence, Kamloops, giving full  particulars. A copy of the register  is to be sent to all sheepmen and  likely purchasers in the province.  The fee for registration is to be  50c and a commission of 5 per  cent, is to be charged on all sales.  The Association haa also been  asked by the Dominion Government Advisory Bbard on Wild Life  Protection to "furnish information  as to methods being employed to  eradicate coyotes and with what  success, in order to formulate a  practical policy for dealing with  this question, which is not only  interprovincial, but international  in ita scope." The Association  therefore makes an appeal to all  ranchers to immediately furnish  particulars as to their losses, the  efforts made to mitigate them and  steps they consider either for the  individual, co-operatively or by  the authorities to render sheep  husbandry safe and profitable,  especially in view of the worldwide shortage of wool.  The committee in charge of the  Kelowna Fall Fair are anticipating  not only a revival of the old-time  interest in thi3 annual event but a  new enthusiasm which will make  it a notable success. The catch-  phrase which rppears on the post-  ers: "Come and see how Kelowna  has answered the call for more  and better production," expresses,  perhaps, as well as anything, the  rivalry, in agricultural and horticultural effort which is in evidence  this year. Nothing stimulates intelligent progress in all farm work  more than this friendly competition at the annual fair, and for this  r-ason it is anticipated that the entries will exceed the records of the  best years.  The opening will take place  Wednesday, September I Ith, at 8  p.m., after all the judging haa been  completed, and addresses will be  given by well-known speakers.  The exhibition hall and poultry  building will be open until I l|p.m.  that evening.  Thursday will be the big day  when the horse races and athletic  events lake place. The stock parade is likely to be a big thing this  year. Stock-judging competitions,  experimental farm exhibit, bee  demonstration, insect and pest exhibits, school work, etc., will be  among the attractions. Luncheons  and teas will be served by the  Ladies' Hospital Aid, and the Kelowna city band will furnish music.  "Boucher's big shows," with merry-  go-round, ferris wheel, and other  excitements will.be here both days.  Motorists from over the lake  crossing by the ferry will be given  free admission to the Fair.  The second annual convention  of the Good Roads League of British Columbia will be held at Penticton on Tueaday, September I 7.  This convention is to be held coincident with that of the Union of  B.C. Municipalities, and in many  ways the meeting of these two  associations will result in some  immediate and much future benefit to the province.  The programme which has been  arranged by the Good Roads  League, the subjects that will be  dealt with are of the greatest interest to every city, to every, municipality arid indeed to every district in the province, and it seems  especially fit that such an early  'opportunity should be given for  the coming together of so manv  good roads 'enthusiasts and civic  [authorities so that the subjects of  such vital importance can be discussed by those who have them  most at heart. A provincial campaign for good roads, in order to  be successful, must have the support and co-operation of the people in every section of the province  and a better opportunity for securing such universal support could  hardly be imagined than the one  j which will be provided at Penticton next month.  "  With a system of good loads  tbe province will undoubtedly become a mecca for the tourists from  south and east. When the three  unfinished gaps of the trans-pro-  vincial highway are completed it  will afford communication by  branch roads between Vancouver,  coast cities and nearly all settled  parts of the interior���north to Ash-  cToft.Kamloops and North Thompson; South to Similkameen, Okanagan and boundary points, and  ��snt to Cranbrook, Nelson and  Alberta, making a connection with'  the Trans-Canadian Highway, and  also affording additional facilities  for entering the State of Washington, U.S.A.  Even at tbe present time the  tourist traffic is increasing everv  year, in spite of the fact that the  tourist has to go in many roundabout ways to reach a given destination. The bridging of a few  gaps, a little improvement here  and there, and there is no calculating what a handsome return the  investment would bring to the  province.  Insect Pest Found  Attacking Alfalfa Seed  Disirict    Entomologist   Finds  Insect New to Valley  Mr. R. C. Treherne, Dominion  Etomological Field officer, reports  that as a result of his duty of pollinating and seed infesting thia  summer in the Okanagan, has become aware of the presence of an  insect, known as the Alfalla Seed  Chalcid, which apparently ia causing considerable loss of seed in  some sections.  Thia insect is known to threaten  the production of alfalfa seed in  some localities in the United States.  It has been found during the past  two weeks at Keremeos, Keleden,  Penticton, Vernon, Kamloops and  Walhachin and there is no reason  why it should  not also occur at  other points in the dry  belt.   For  the purpose of assisting the Department of Agriculture in the effort to  determine the range and extent of  infestation, growers are aaked, aa a  favor to pick some of the  mature  seed along their fence rows and  place them in a glass tube or bottle  with a cotton wool cork.   These  seeds should be let stand ill a dry  shaded place and watch should be  kept for some  minute black  flies  about one-eighth of an inch long.  It is possible that these seeds may  have to be  kept over winter,  aa  emergence   sometimes   does   not  occur until the spring.   Later on, if  the grower  will  advise the  local  representative of the Department  as to his findings, giving the locality  he will assist very greatly in estimating   the   degree   and range  of  infestation.    Injury by this chalcid  is entirely confined to clover, bur  clover   (medicago   hispida) and  rKalla   (medicago   sativa).     The  winter is passed in the larval stage  within the seed.   Adult emergence  occuts in the spring.   Oviposition  takes place through the soft, green  seed-pods when tbe pods are naif  grown.

AND CRITICISM  To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record;  Dear Sir,���When so much has  been said lately against the work  of the Y.M.C.A. at the front, this  unsolicited testimonial from one  of our own Kelowna boys, Pte. H.  Francis, showing the other side of  the question ahould be made public. Kelowna contributed splendidly to the Y campaign and it is  satisfactory to know the self-denial  needed for raising that contribution was not wasted. The following is an extract from a letter to  his sister dated July 24th:���  " I saw a copy of "Jack Canuck"  crabbing the Y.M.C.A. One statement waa that a sergeant who had  been out to France said be had  never had a free cup of tea from  the Y. That sergeant waa probably a ' dingbat' from one of the  base campa or something of the  sort and had never seen the front  line as the free tea ia for those  only who are really at the front  and not for the men with bombproof jobs in the rear.  Personally, I've had many a cup  and been thankful for it and when  I was on a stretcher-carrying party  I have alao had biscuits and cigarettes free as well.  There was also a cartoon in  ' Jack Canuck ' ahowing two notice  boards side by side, one giving  price list���Tea 5c, Coffee 5c, &c,  with ' Paper Free' at the bottom.  The other requiring subscriptions  of several thousand dollars. Tommy Atkins looking at the aecond  board remarks that the paper be  uses does not come to that figure,  which is really a libel as it implies  that the Y keep the money for  their own use.  Some of the benefits we get  from the Y at the front besides  free tea, are recreation marquees  or huts, library with one franc deposit on.each book repaid at any  Y library on return of book, picture shows  and  concerts,  sport  at jcti st ��._��� =PF'r =3fts-  ��.,���, .wy, t ,i.��r 'Jz ��s*A: saasa  S.O.S. Boys to Receive  Badges Saturday  of service.  So far as this district was concerned the scare was practically  all the harm sustained. The s.s.  Sicamous did not interfere with her  schedule at all, and the s.s. Okanagan and tug Castlegar merely lost  one trip each.  The Commission will still continue to sit until all difficulties have  been cleared up, but it ia not expected that any further interruption  of service will take place.  Carload of Registered  Holsteins Arrives  The pure-bred registered Holsteins purchased by the members  of the Holstein Breeders' Association arrived yesterday after a three  days trip from the coast in charge  of Mr. Powley, of Woods Lake,  who had undertaken to care for  them in transit The animals had  been on ahow at the Exhibition and  were much admired. They were  sixteen in number, all young stock,  though a few were mature cows,  three with calves, two being born  on the way down. The purchasers  are Messrs. J. Murray, A. Reid, M.  Hereron, A. R. Davy, Bankhead  Orchard Co., W. Price, A. Cooke,  A. H. Crichton, G. F. Coventry,  E. R. Bailey and F. E. R. Wollaston.  As elsewhere announced a meet  ing is to be held in the Methodist  church Saturday evening to present  S.O.S. badges. Further details regarding these badges are just to  hand. The following hoys will be  entitled to the S.O.S. badges from  the Canadian Food Board :���  Those who have" registered aa  SOS. boys;  Those who have worked for three  months on one farm, or who intend  to complete that period this year,  or who in exceptional cases have  been prevented from working the  three full months, butjhave worked  over two full montha.  Those who have not completed  their full term will be requited to  sign a Declaration Form on receiving their badge, stating that if they  do not complete their term of  service the badge will be banded  back to the Government representative.  The Service Certificates have  been sent to all of the bovs, whose  names appear on the list at Victoria,  and it is necessary that these certificates be signed by the employer  and that they be aent to James H.  Beatty, Victoria, B.C. If this is  not done, those who left school before the term closed will not receive  their school standing. For the  entrance into the High School, two  months' service is necessary and  for the matriculation into the University, three months efficient  service.  Mr. W. W. Loane returned fiom  tbe coast yesterday.   .... .-���_ ���,,.��,��������,    v.     ...c  infested seeds and then through  the seed-pods. Evidence of attack  may be seen at the preaent lime  by the presence of a number of  minute holes in the dry seed-pod  of the uncut first crop of alfalfa  seed. Infested seeds may be  recognized by their abnormal shape  and usually by their dull brown  color. The glossy appearance of  normal seed may also be interfered  with. There are .probably two  generations of flies in the course of  the summer in the Okanagan,  According to Urbahns of the U. S.  Dept. of Agriculture (19! 4), this  insect causes a loss of from 10 to  30 per cent, of first crop seed and  from 30 to 70 per cent, of the  second.  At the present time it is advisable to dispose of the screenings  of the alfalfa aa it is threshed by  placing them in a compact heap  for three or four months, so that it  may become heated and decayed.  If this treatment ia not carried out  all screenings should be burnt. In  the autumn, further, all roadside  alfalfa plants and clover should be  cut, fed or burnt. Only clean seed  should be planted next spring as  the winter is passed as a larva in  the seed. If necessary, suspected  seed could be fumigated with  carbon bisulphide, I oz. to 100 lbs.  of seed. Tbe crops should be  seeded so as to allow of uniform  lipening, and the crop ahould be  harvested as soon as the larger  number of pods are ripe. Thi  earlier harvesting should be stacked as soon after cutting as possible,  thus rendering emergence of the  flies more difficult.  Further information on the local  life history of this insect is lacking  at the present time, but il is h led  that facilities will be offered to make  an investigation.  Three young boys were up in  the police court this week on the  serious charge ot burglary. They  had entered the house on Cawaton  Avenue of Pte.

They. oow, second ooar,  best  I  were let out on suspended sentence. I and beat sow sweepstake  that is giving vegetables, oatmeal  or other mess extras or the money  to get them with, to the different  units at the front. I believe this  battalion lately has been benefitting that wav to the tune of about  400 franca a month.  Another item they have to contend with ia that it ia not a very  uncommon thing for one of tbeir  canteens to get blown up with  shells and a lot of goods spoilt, to  say nothing of the canteens and  stock they lose whenever Fiitz  makes an advance. There may,"  he concludes, " be cases of pilfering and graft; it would be almost  impossible to run a concern of that  size without."  IRRIGATION  WATMR  SHORTAGE  To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir,���After reading the report in the Rutland News of your  paper Aug. 8th, 1916, with reference to the Kelowna Irrigation Co.'a  dam located at the head of Mill  Creek, I would aak you to favor  me by printing these few lines io  your next issue.  On the 5th of December last I,  in company with two others, camped by the company'a dam for five  days between Dec. 2nd and 9th.  There had been conaiderable rainfall which had caused quite a flow  of water to pass through the dam.  On our arrival 1 expected to find  a large body of water, bul to my  great disappointment and disgust I  found nothing but an empty dam.  with quite a flow passing through  the gate.

Public School Notes  Edited by Principal .Gordon  The Public School will re-open  on Tuesday next at 9 a.m. Some  impression has got abroad lhat the  holidays have been extended till  the end of September. It is not  so. 1 hope that the parents will  make every effort to have their  children at school on Tuesday.  There are many reasons why this  ia desirable. In the first place, the  influence on the children of a  prompt start is all lor their good.  Secondly, the children are moved  to their new rooms and introduced  to their teachers on the morning of  the first day. Thirdly, instructions  are given concerning the purchase  of exercise books and apparatus,  which have to be repeated to the  children who come late. And  fourthly, we are anxious to know  exactly how many children are  likely to enroll in case it should  be necessary to open another  room. When we graded in June,  we had enough pupila to fill all  the eleven rooms. Thirty-six pupils passed out of the Entrance,  but we had the names of thirty-  five beginners for the Receiving  claas, and it is possible we did not  get all the names. You will see  then, that if we get as many as  thirty new pupila in addition to  beginners, and a great many have  come to town during the summer,  the School Board will have to consider the opening of another room,  You will thus see the necessity ol  sending the children on the opening dav. We want to know as  soon as possible how many chil  dren are available.  Pupils should bring their penci  boxes only. .No books should be  brought on the opening day.  Admission cards will be given  to the brginneis to be filled up  and returned on Tueaday if possible.  Miss Caldwell's class should line  up at the south entrance when the  bell rings and march into the Principal's room.  Beginners should be accompan  ied by parents or guardians, or by  some of the elder boys and girls,  and they should be taken right  into Miss Wood's room, which is  the first room on the left aa you  enter by the north door. New  pupils, not beginners, should report at the office entering bv the  south door.  Beginners must have attained  the age of six yeara. No beginners  wili be received after September  16th.  a        a  a  There will be only one change  in the staff. Miss Macintosh has  been replaced by Miss Hunter who  taught last year in Vernon.

Aug. 27, 1918  In the coming season's work there  is one thing of which we must  make sure this time and that is to  establish a bugle band of some sort.  Mr. Fred Gore, late of the 172nd  Battalion, and now of the Kelowna  Fire Brigade, has very kindly consented to do whatever he can to  assist us in this respect, and as we  have two bugles and a drum all  that we now need is the material  to blow, and to beat the drums. If  we can find that in the troop then  we can perhaps get another bugle  or two and drum. All scouts who  wish to make an effort to get into  the band will be given the opportunity if they n ake their wishes  known in time.  If we can have the use of the  Exhibition Building again this coming Fall and Winter, which the Directors ofthe Association have been  so kind as to let us have gratis for  the past two seasons, we shall be  able to make the basket-ball more  interesting and exciting than ever,  as Summerland is just aching to get  at us, and Penticton will probably  also be able to field a team. If we  can get teams from our three troops  then we shall be able to arrange a  regular playing schedule. �� Then  again, if we learn to play well  enough, we shall see if a challenge  trip to the coast could not be worked. The question of financing such  a trip would be the most serious  obstacle to be faced, but if we  could once arrange the transportation,that would be about all we  should have to worry over, as  doubtless coast scouts would be  very glad to billet scouts from a  visiting learn for a few days.  We wish to take this opportunily  of thanking all those parents of  scouts who so kindly assisted us in  entertaining some of our visiting  scouts from Summerland on regatta  day.  Scouts shake hands with the left  hand, and as the great Kitchener  said, "Once a scout always a scout."  That is when a boy makes his  scout promise he is expected to do  his best to live up to that promise  aa long afterwards as in his body  he draws breath, whether he remains actively identified with a  troop or not. Of course if a bov  wishes to forget he ever made such  a promise and deliberately decides  not to let it have any further influence or bearing on his daily life,  or considers that like an old toy it  should be cast aside as one of the  childish things of his youth, then  we are not particularly anxious to  shake hands with him at all, but  we earnestly hope that the left-  handed shake may continue to be  the bond which unites rll former  members of our little troop down  through the years to come, even to  the time (for those of us who reach  them) when we shall be in our late  eighties and nineties.  We have received 24 ofthe 1919  Mett's Scout Diaries for which we  have paid Is.3d. each and carriage  and duty in addition. We shall  sell them to members of the troop  at 30c. each, bul aa there are not  enough to go round you had better  secure one at once if you wish to  have one.  The Wolf Cubs will meet at  headquarters on Friday, at 5.30,  for a hike to Knox Mountain, where  a corn roast will be held. This  will be (allowed by a favorite Cub  game. Thoae who attended the  last hike we held will need no  second notice.   Be sharp on time.  Notes from the Prairie Fruit  Markets Bulletin  By Commissioner J. A. Grant, Calgary.  "Watchful Waiting" is the attitude of jobbers all over the northwestern cities from Winnipeg to  Portland, Oregon, in their annual  advance fruit-buying campaign���  Micawber-like, they are just waiting for something to turn up."  Especially is this state noticeable  in the apple buying. If the shippers and growera remain firm it  does not need very much foresight  to see what will happen. The  apple crop of the Northwest is  below normal. The consuming  power is practically the aame.  Dried fruit and canned goods will  be at a premium owing to high  prices paid by manufacturers both  for sugar and fruit. Fruit has advanced leas than any other foodstuffs, and is today one of the  cheapest foods, Apple sales in  Wenatchee and Yakima have been  numerous and prices are steadily  advancing. It is reported that nearly all the Jonathan apple crop in  Wenatchee and Yakima has left  the growers' hands at good prices.  From all U.S. points reports are at  hand showing moderate movement  at greatly increased prices over last  year.  B.C. fruit shippers are experiencing an unusual loss in wastage of  fruit in transit this year. Corres  pendents' letters and our own ob  servation bear out the truth of this  statement. We are in doubt as to  the reason for this, and would  suggest a rigid inspection of the  state of fruit at shipping point, and  a certificate issued covering the  slate in which fruit is loaded. The  cause of the trouble is one of two  things, viz.: Fruit is eithei shipped  in an over-ripe and sift condition  or the refrigerator service is faultv.  The elimination of loss is essential  in these war times. We must get  at the root of this trouble, in the  interests of the growers, shippers,  carriers and marketers of our fruit,  as well as the consumers. There  is no method of handling, icing or  ventilation that will overcome care-  less packing and shipping diseased  or over-ripe fruit, but if it can be  be established that fruit is leaving  shipping points in good condition  the refrigerator system and the  size of the load will have to be  radically changed. The Northwestern States are able to cut out most  of the wastage and the time is ripe  to investigate the cause of our  losses.  Calgary wholesale prices are as  follows:���  Pears, B.C., $3 trf $3.25.  Apples, slow sale, Gravensteins,  per box,$2.75.  Apples, orchaid run and No. 3,  in crates, (to move) 75c to $1.  Crabapples, very slow, box, $1.75  to $1.90.  Plums, according to quality, 4  basket crate, $1.75 to $2.25.  Peaches, good No. I, yellow St.  John, per box, $1.65 to $1.75.

Armstrong, B.C., quotes potatoes  $28 per ton f.o.b. there.  Stockton, Cal., potatoes, no  change.  There seems to be considerable  excitement in producing sections  in Washington over apple prices  and we understand cash buyers  are very active paying unheard-of  prices for good quality fruit.  Fruit scarcity ia the outstanding  feature on the market in England,  and many restrictions are made as  to quantity and the days on which  persons can buv it. The embargo  on Canadian apples is apparently  going to remain for this year, but  the trade and the public would  welcome its removal were that step  possible. '  An important fusion of co-operative farming and commercial associations in New Zealand was  recently completed under the style  of the Farmers' Co-Operatjve  Wholesale Federation (New Zealand), Ltd. This includes some of  the strongest farmers' organizations  in that country, arid will be a large  importer of farm and creamery  machinery, implement accessories  and general farm supplies. The  total subscribed capital of the nine  associations which have membership in the*federation is $8,904,600  with a reserve fund of $1,504,907.  The annual  business transacted  will be greater than $47,000,000.           o  Miss Phyllis Gant, a member of  the Hammersmith Rowing Club,  London, recently swam from Kew  to Putney in the record time for a  woman. She covered the five miles  sixty yards, in just under one hour  and a quarter���swimming at the  rate of about a mile in 15 minutes.  Local swimmers will find interest  in comparing this with the long  distance swimming recently held  at the coast���and our own regatta.

Mrs. DuMoulin chaperoned the young people,  of whom there waa a large attendance. Miss Hutchinson and Miss  Gaddea acted as hoatessea.  A party 'of young ladies from  the Baptist church met at the home  of Mrs. P. Harding last Thursday  evening for the purpose of surprising Misa G. Gowen, whose  wedding is shortly to be announced, with a " shower." Misa Gowen  who was greatly surprised, warmly  thanked the generous donors for  their gifts.   ,       _  Rev. C. M.

In addition to  facilities for reading, resting and  writing, a piano and telephone  have been installed and it ia hoped  that the premises will minister to  the comfort and enjoyment of the  many strangers in the town and  district during the fruit aeason.  It is also hoped that the local and  country women will feel free to use  the rooms.

However, the volume of water  coming through was great enough  and should have caused the water  tn dam up in the reservoir. , The  weather was quite cold/part of the  time near zero, and the ice being  three or four inches thick forced  us to cut through the ice to water  our horses. The flow seemed to  be about the same when we left as  when we arrived, and no increase  whatever had taken place in thi  dam for the period of five day  which we spent there. I also took  particular notice of the height of  the water stored in the dam last  summer, and from indications,  conclusions could be quite accurately formed, and to my judgment  the dam in 1917 was far from  being full or pasaing over the spillway. This caused a shortage and  an enormous I09S to our water  users.  When the company's representatives visited the dam in the third  week of April, 1918, it should have  showed a greater depth of water  than I2J feet. Evidently as the  flood water came in in the spring  the greater part of it escaped in  some way ol which I will leave for  your readers to form their own  conclusions.  It 13 known by everyone that in  the winter of 191 7-18 we had our  greatest snowfalls of any year since  the construction of the dam. Up  to the year 1913-14 this dam appeared to be a success and all  were given water to the 1st of  September as their contracts called for.    The   year 1916 the water  waa closed off from the users  about the second week of August.  The year 1917 we had a veiy wet  spring, and water users didn't require much irrigation until the  second or third week of June, excepting for hay, aa the soil was  furnished with sufficient moisture  for vegetables from the rains.  This spring just paat we were  quite fortunate in getting sufficient  rain just after our vegetable crops  were planted, and the cold evenings stopped the vegetable growera from using much water. However, when the extreme heat came  and water waa required, to the surprise of many of the users we were  notified that the supply would give  out in about twelve days, causing  quite a sensation and putting every  one to great inconvenience, for  which no one was responsibl  except the Kelowna Ir igation Co.  How long it will continue no  one can tell, but it I am not ton  hasty in forming conclusions, 1 am  quite sure aa times improve and  monev is more plentiful and buy-  ers of land appear, thia dam which  has caused so much trouble and  loss to the farmers of Ellison, Rut  land and Glenmore will again be  filled to ita utmost capacity and  pass over the spillway as in the  year 1909.
