KELOWNA, BRITISH COLUlvlBIA, THURSDAY, JANUARY 21, 1915.���8 PAGES  ssgmmimssmmmmmm,  $1,50 Per Annum  First Meeting  Standing Committees Appointed for the Year  The inaugural meeting oi the now  oounoil took plaos Monday. At this  meeting the old oounoil aren/suppoted  to hand over the affairs of the oily  to their successors. Usually there is  muoh speech making and congratulations handed round. Monday's meeting, however lost much of its napres-  siveness from the faot that wits one  exception, the personnel of the counoil  remained the same.  Alderman Taylor who was ,-etiting  took his seat whilst the formal pro-  oess of swearing in bv Magistrate Weddell proceeded, and hia plaos at ths  table was then taken bv the new member, Alderman Raymer.  His Worship the Mayor took the opportunity of thanking Alderman Taylor for his. faithful and valuable servioes during the year, whioh he and  the oounoil muoh regretted to low. In  the business of the finanoe committee  especially his absence would be felt,  and it was quite probable that at  times the oounoil would have to consult with him on financial matters.  Alderman Raymer then took his  plaoe and the business of the counoil  prooeeded. Alderman Rovmor needed  no introduction to the work aif the  oounoil, and the sight of the worthy  alderman sitting at the board brought  baok to some memories of iIrt-ir times  when Mr. Raymer was Kelowna's first  mayor. Sinoe then he has served several terms as mayor ai'.l alderman,  and has left his mark oa .he city's  progress in many ways.

Meeting  Officers Elected for Year-  Creamery Project Progressing  That the creamery project Was in a  lair way to realisation, and that every  assistance possible would be given to  responsible farmers in procuring milk  cows by the local banks was the statement oi the president at the annual  meeting ol the Kelowna Farmers' Institute, held Saturday afternoon in  Haymer's hall. The matter was being  pushed as muoh as possible bv the  committee, said Mr. Hereron, and he  had every hope oi a successful outcome. The next step, however, was in  the hands ol the farmers themselves,  who were being asked lor reliable information as to the number of cows  they would be prepared to imrohnse  on easy terms. The following letter  was being sent to all farmers iu the  district and he urged that the attached slip be returned to the secretary at  as early \ date as possible. The letter  read:  "The committee inveatigat ng the  Creamery proposition require definite  information as to the numtar of  cows which are at present available  should a oreamery be started, and  also the number of cows farmers  would be willing to purchase on  easy terms'spread over two years,  and the number of cows farmers  would purohase for oasb if suitable  animals were brought in.  "You will find attached a form  whioh you are requested to .'<*! in  and return to the seoretary. You  will not be committing yourself in  anv way, but unless some .noro or  less definite information can 'it obtained, the committee oan not proceed with negotiations which they  are undertaking with regard to the  financing of the oreamery.'

Local Njght School Open  An interesting experiment 'n the formation ol an evening sohool is beip  tried thit winter, through the energy  and generosity ol several local gentlemen who are spending a good deal  ol time and giving their servioes as  tutors free of charge. The r.sod of  some opportunity for instruction in  praotioal subjects which aro beyond  the range oi the usual public school  courses had been keenly felt here at  elsewhere, and this effort is a stirt iu  the right direction. The school is being held three nights in the week, end  so lar it confined to three subjects.  On Wednesday evening Mr. 0. H. Jack-  ton is givincr a oourse ol instruction  in bookkeeping: on Thursday evening  Mr. D. W. Sutherland takes niathema-  tios. treating the subject more from  a practical point of view, and showing  methods ol applying the knowl'd-  in the makinr of everyday calcula-  tions; on Friday evening Mr. J.,.

The lectures  and lessons are open to nnvone niad  should prove highly useful to a lar���  class of young men especially who are  making lio use ol their leisure hours.  A gathering oi farmers which lilled  Haymer's hall almost to capacity mot  at 10 o'olook yesterday morning and  again in the afternoon ior the piupoie  ot discussing the fruit situation, and  incidentally ol venting the long bottled up grievanoes arisincr from, the  disappointing returns irom the iruit  this year. Manp-er Robertson was  down irom Vernon to -ddress tilt  mowers, and lor several hours hail to  bear the brunt oi a gruelling criticism  whioh only a man ol Mr. Itobortsona  calibre could have faced. Though  throughout a calmness reignjd over  the proceedings, and little ".as heard  ol a heated or boisterous nature, yot  it was a calmness born in many casus  of a determination to "et to tht bottom of things, but in other case. it.  is to be feared of an equally stiorAr  determination to be influenced in no  way by anything whioh nngjit  be said or done. In short Mr. Robertson iB acquiring a reputation as a  fascinator and mesmerizer nf public  meetings, and those who Ut themselves unable to pierce his armor with  their shafts of oritioism, at least made  up their minds to maintain a paisivo  resistance,  It had been first arranged to hold  the meeting in the Beard of Trade  rooms , but finding the atteudunco  likely to be lararer than was at first  anticipated it waB transferred to Hav-  mer's hall. The chair was faken by  Dr. C. W. i Dickson, president < f the  looal Growers' Exchange.  In his opening remarks the chairman  stated that he realized, as much as  any of those present, the seriousness  of the situation facing the growers aud  also the business men and merchant,  in the community. He hoped I hut the  reeult of the meeting,would bo to arrive at some definite conclusion as to  the causes of the failure to got propel  prices for their produoe. It was ahro-  lutelyneoesBary to formulate soma plan  that would ensure to the growers such  prices a�� would enable them to li.-e.  In his opinion there wat no reason  why tuch nrioet oould not be oMni"  He appealed for tne co-operation oi tbt  farmers and the business men and  merchants, without whioh it was impossible to achieve the beet mults.  He then oalled on Mr. J. H. Itoekio.  president of the Okanagan United  Growers (Central Selling Agsae") and  a local director to address lho meeting.  Mr. Reekie said that tw0 very serious problems were facing the giowert  of tbe valley. The first nroblem was  not proper to be discussed Mt tbt*  meeting and he would not 'ike u'  their time except to merely mention it.  He referred to the ouestion of itrigf  tion, without which the land would  revert to its original arid .condition  The second problem was the suocwsful  marketing of the produoe. Unless it  was possible to get better returns ior  the grower ho did notpoe how the'  were going to live. * He then briefly  sketched his part in the preliminary  arrangement for the markoUn? of  this year's crop. He and Mr. liobertson had taken a- trio to various prairie points in the interests of the a> *��-  oiation and had made arransrst tents  with tbe Mutual Brokers to the elect  that they would handle the output  of the Central Sellino- Aoenoy e\clu  sively. For this servioe thev '"'���'���  bo paid $30 per car for Iruit nnd bo  thought $10 ��� oar for vegetables. The  reason that thev agreed to this charge  shipping in produce and offering the  same brokerage allowance. Naturally  the brokers were going to make tbe  best possible deal for themselves and  it would bo very poor policy to offer  less than others wero nnying. 'I hr  Mutual Brokers he suonosed controlled  60 to 70 per oent., of the irairie market. They also endeavored to ni-kf  arrangements with the Grain Glowers'  Associations whereby thev wo lid take  some proportion of the orop provided  that they could put it in at the ii��ht  figure. However, it was '.mpossiblf  owing to the severe eastern competition to make any satisfactory deal  with them. With regard to ihe coast  markets thoy hud made arranirumamts  with Robertson, Morris ft -'Io., arid he  believed that they were the bust bro':  ers at tho coast. He referred to tha  unfortunate market conditions that  bad arisen, pointing out a-hat the  bumper crops all over the continent  and the reo-rottablo war which Wai  raging at the present time, laid curtailed the demand for fruit to a tremendous extent, resulting in tin enormous over-production.  The war at once demoralised the export fruit trade as most of the ships  omra���d jn the business were uf Brit-  ish registry. This also affected Alhtri  can oxports for tho same reason. Lei  er thev were able to export 40 ta*  loads of apples.  The general market conditions had  become so bad on the onening of the  war that they wero forced to idap r-ro-  duce on a consignment 1'as's lard if  was a case of taking what thoy could  get. Thore had been a ��'ivut deal of  eritio'sm of tho chargos which had bee  absorbed bv the broken, but ho point-  id out that the broker acted us selling agent, and if they had n >: employed the broW thev would lu o h"l  to employ -travellers instead, and in  his oninion the brokers were the  ohoaper. The wholesalers or 'o'ibers  rret a commission on the seltiu; price  and this vear it had been estimate*?  that together thev had got aomothing  liko 8135,000 in this way. Ho believed  nat methods could be adopted ��ht<Te  by they could get some of this wl'iilc  salert' profit themselves.  Reverting to the policy of consigning produoe instead of sollin' '" h.,  shinning point he said oircumstun'es  would arise in any year that would  foroe a consigned market no matter  how well the selling agenov wns managed. No manager oould lull how  muoh he would have to offor. Jfo was  told for instance that there would  probably be 1000 oases of n certain  commodity, and he makes airiange  ments to market this quantity, but  aotua'Hy it is Possible that 'JM are  offered when the time lor shinrainaj arrives. Having received Imrffl extra  cases they must be disposed of ami it  is nossfble. as in the case of soft  fruits, that they would linvo to be  handled with suoh despatch as to preclude anv chance of placing them at  f.o.b., prices. Under ordinary conditions, however, every shipping con-  corn triod to avoid soiling in conJifti-  ment.  Dr. Jones, in an interesting sreech  went carefully into the method of arriving at tho averago selling places as  reported to the grower. (In an estimated gross turnover of J400.000 the  rlinrge for brokoraro was about >13,-  000 or 34- per oent.

February 2nd  bV published next Wfek.  German airmen delivered their long-predicted attack on England  Tuesday night. From a bate, presumably in Germany, the y flew over  the North Sea, to the.eastern coatt of England, where, for nearly four  houn from Q.20 p.m. until about midnight, they circled over a group  of eight English townt only a little more than 100 miles from London,  apparently dropping bombt at will.  The mott important townt over which the German airmen appeared were Sandringham, Yarmouth, Sheringham, Hunttanton,  Cromer, Heacham, Dertingham and King's Lynn.  - Most of the damage; appears to have been inflicted upon private  houses and shops; few public buildings or docks teem to have been  injured. The raiding airmen showed excellent ability to pilot their  vessels at well at good markmanship. In spite of the darkness of the  night they seemed to find their way over the country with remarkable  directness and the accuracy of their aim with bombs wat greater than  had been believed possible.  This attack on defenceless and peaceful villages hat naturally  aroused indignation to a very high pitch. One objective of the raiders  appears to have been the royal palace at Sandringham which the King  and Queen left Monday, but apparently little damage waa done there.  Five persons are known to havs been killed at Yarmouth and King's  Lynn.  A report that one of the Zeppelins was brought down at Hua-  ttanton hat been denied by the police.  1 'J ���-  could have got the produce ditfribut  ed in any cheaper way but ia his  opinion they had not got the best  possible prioes. The wholesaler was a  much greater problem and rot 'a nauch  greater profit out of their p.cduce.  He was not so sure that some of this  profit could not be saved by more  direct methods of reaching the consumer. The gross cost of the belling  Agency was about $30,000 or about 7-4  per cent., of the turnover, so that the  total selling charges with brokerage  added would amount to 10} nor rent.  If they had got good distribution he  considered that this was not an extravagant churge.fi However, ~s the  prices realized this year were vory low  the percentage basis of caloulat'ng the  expenses was a littlo misleading. Had  the returns been normal ft'would probably have been about 74; por e>mt.  While the returns on soft fruits last  season had been absolutely naiseiable  he did not think, considering  the conditions, that they could have  done much bettor on apples, but it  might be argued that tho local and  central charges which amounted to 50  cents per box were too hich. Wbut  they had to look into Was wha/ner  these charges were reasonable or not  and if not reasonable whether they  could bo reduced. He then iiointeal out  that tho bulk of the expense wbich  went to make up tho 40 cents a box  local charges on apples was filed and  incapable of reduction. By 'he new  law governing agricultural ost-ocia-  tions they were compelled to C"preoi-  ato concrete buildings 5 per cent-, per  annum and Wooden buildings snd  equipment 10 per cent., per annum.  This depreciation amounted lo over  *2100 a vear. AddinT to this fcioOO  per annum as interest on the government loan of 850,000 made a tntftl of  over $4100 a vear which they could  not oscape. In addition tbure was  "ood will and organization evoenses  to lie written off in annual instalments  The cost of tho packaare anl ���-(Uin^  charges wero not capable o' n uch variation, and after these charges which  he had enumerated wore taken c-are of  thero wns not much loft to modify;  In conclusion he intimnted that the  havndlinc charges would be reductal nn**  better ways of markctiug would be  nroposed. He insisted that 'hey must  keen a farmers' organization in the  vnlley if thev did not thero whs a  Hnrk way before tho frowors.  Dr. Dickson no:n'ed out t'ut. the  local association onV liati-llcil t'l-i iro-  diico ud to �� certain stago. Aft.Ttbot  Ih?

The manager  of the Central Sellin�� Aotuov vtat  there and thev would be allow id f  nait to Mr. Robertson env iiuesti.aBs  thev desired. The dirocton of the  local sssooiat'on had nronared �� number of questions which he would rut  to Mr. Robertson on beh.lf of the  arrowors.  Tho first question was "How is tht.  Central's business mnnsared nnd is the  Central Board or tho manogor resnor  sible? If tho manager, how far 151 the  manager responsible?"  Mr. Robertson, in replv to lho first  Dart of the question said ' I would  sav by the manager. The mutineer ie  responsible to tho board, throui'h tbe  executive. Ab to how far ho is res  nonsiblo thnt is for tho board usoy.  Thc manairor is held responsible up to  a certain noint and they are lesp.inji-  ble for the balance."  Dr. Dickson. "In matters of polioy  and vital mattors of business ho is  responsible to the oxeoutive. The board  primarily initiates t^e "olicy?  Mr. Robertson. "Yes, the broad polioy on which the business is managed  is indicated by the board. Tho executive and manager work out lho details of that policy. Tho executive and  manager should not initiaio riny pol  ley."  Dr. Dickson then road the eicond  question. "What wos the busi? of  handling through the brokers in 1914?  Was it with the'-Sonsent of tha tiireo  tors that arrangements wore made  with the broken on a eonsignmint  basis?"  Mr. Robertson. "Tho policy rl the  board was that wo sltoild deal  through tho brokon and that wo  should make lho best doal we could.  Thirty dollars ner car was to bo the  charge on fruit, 115.00 pet oar on onions and J10.00 rer car qn all oiher  vegetables. Tho only concession that  we could get compared with the pie-  vious vear was a reduction ot 85 _ per  oar on vogotgblos other then a>nions.

In reply lo further questioning ond  insinuations regordincr the dual with  Robertson, Morris & Co., Mr. Robertson said he personol'v had onposel the  deolinf with them nt all as it would  lav him onen to suspicion and criticism.  This statement wns confirmed by Mr.  Reekie; who slated that the boird hac[  insisted nranh Robertson, Morris ft Co.  being their broken at the a-oast as  thov considered thoy were the bost  firm to d��nl with.

Roes, S. T. Elliott, A. A', harker, W. H. Pooley. M. Hereron, K. 1<\  Oxley and D. II. Rattenbury.  The meeting was well'attended and  in addition to the usual business pertaining to the annual meeting' many  important matters were discmsod.  Amongst the more important items  of correspondence whioh vero fiist  dealt with was a letter from the Fort  George Board of Trade outlining an  interesting soheme for dealing with the  road question in tbe province. Support  wus asked for a resolution which it  was proposed to forward to the Attorney General advocating- the passing  of on act for the formation of "ion 1  districts" ten miles . square wh.ch  would bo administered much >n the  samo way as our present school districts, each section electing its own  controlling body and a road muster  to take charge of construction and  maintenance.  Although the Board was inclined to  favor the proposal, it was decided  that owing to more pressing problems  confronting tno district at the i.-rcsont  time to lay the matter on the tt.ble  for future consideration.  A further letter from the same source  dealt with thc need of encourajz-ng  immigration into B. C, and asked  that the support of all' bo.ir,is of  trade be given to a request bentar forwarded to the railway com^onios that  excursion. rates and stop-over privileT-  es be extended through to t'auoam-.er  and Prince Rupert.  On a similar th?mo the Moose .law  board wrote pointing out the advantage of endeavoring to pot ������tome of tha  wealthy American tourists, who usually made a practice of spondinr  their holidays in Eurooe. but who Halt  vear would be prevented bv the w-.-.  of. visiting Canada. This v,,uld not  only familiarize them with the almost  unknown beauties oi the C-an.-tdan  Rockies, but also make them betler  acaiuointed with Canada and its oi-  oortuntties for investment. The letter  sumrested that the various boards nf  trade of the west co^-onerato witb tba  railway companies in devising some  olsn to accomplish this.  .BOARD SECURES MANY CON  CESSIONS' DCRING V'iAR  In the report of the retiring president, Mr. S. T. Elliott, * resume ol  the work of the voar wae giv���, sho >���  ing manv important and'valuable iin  nrovoments whioh had been obtain -al  cither directly by the board-or in co-  noeration with other boards in tho  valley. Amongst theso was the road  un Bear Crock. After much Habitation  they had at last succeeded in Lotting  a vory fair road constructed -for the  settlers up Bear Creek. Another important achievement was th�� n-lc*  line on the west side ol the lako,  which although not vet completed wos  under way. and wou'd give ������nnnection  from Kolowna as far as Whitomon's  Creoki Thoy had also secured an appropriation    for protective work     on  aCoatlaosd on Paaa S.I   ���   the wholesalers and would Mr. Robertson explain this arrangement.  Mr. Robertson said it was nicevsary  to explain the difference between a  broker, and a wholesaler, as thee appeared to be confusion as to the functions of those two people, iho broker  is a resident talesman who tnkes tho  plaoe of our own salesmen. If there  were no brokers we would have to  send our own men to tell our 'ra.it to  the wholesaler or retailer. For that  service they paid tl3,000 in '*> 1 i. The  brokon sold tho cars over tho telegraph and telephone. The n.ldeil ri��-  son why they had decidual to slay  with the brokers this year wns that  the mutual broken controlled at least  85 per cent., of tho fruit ir,,a|�� uf tho  north-wist. The Mutual Brokers were  also the buyers for their own wholesale houses. They always knew this  and it was referred to at Kelowna  last year.  Dr. Jones understood that a    commission of 30 per cent., had besn paid  to the wholesalers and in addition HA  hnd been paid to tho brokers.   What .  did the brokers do for it?  Mr. Robortson reforrod to the problem that faced them on a < onsimied  market. They tried to continue the  same policy of outright sale throughout the season, but there w-re ci.rs  that were being offered on cons'i'u-  mont from all parts, and thiy realized it was necessary to make other  arrangements with the broil rs. He had  norsonallv visited tho Mutual Brokers,  the Scott houses and other indopard-  ent houses in Alberta nnd Svui.iche-  was and had made arrangements that  these houses should handle iheii out-  nut exclusively. As far as ho knew  thev   had kept uo to thia a. iwii.aatt.  (CaaUaaad oa Fan 8.) i  PAOE TWO.

In this issue wo reproduce a letter written by Mr. W. K.  Pooley to the Vornon News. As thit  letter goes into the matter verv exhaustively it is perhaps unnecessary  to do moro than just draw uttaution  to it. Tho Boon! ol Trade, too. took  up the matter, and stronj reprr.uf.nta-  tions aro to bo made Irom various  quarters to tho government to la'"  prompt measures to prevent UI��v  such catastrophe as tho stoppage of the water supply. Government legislation is na  doubt tending to the eventual public  ownership of water systems, but the  law in Buch matters moves slowl  and wo can not afford to wait. Ihe  necessity is urgent and the --overnment  should be pressed to at least take  prompt temporary measures to tido  over the danger.  There is nothing unreasonable or unconstitutional in such n request. No  doubt many of the larger rrigation  systems of the Okanagan are in rri  vote hands for private "ain, but their  responsibilities to tho nublic aro so  ���treat and so vital thnt thev ran not  be allowed to run the risk of fniltn?  to carrv them. Moraiover a.mplo pie-  cedent could bo found for .such interference if it woro needed.  The unfortunate circumstances that  the long looked-for fruitgrowers' mooting was fixed for Wednesday makes  the time too short for any lengthy  consideration or comment. It would  bo difficult to sav just off hand vbut  precise effect the meeting has had  upon the feelings and views ol tho  growers of the district. Since the  fact becumo known generally that the  fruit returns would not only bo no  bettor than hut yoar, but would indeed be much worse, rumblings of discontent and dissatisfaction, chiefly  lovelled at the unfortunate ba'ad of  Manager Robertson, havo be n hot r.l  in every quarter. Coupled with the  hard knocks reoeived from other directions, the nnor farmer his found himself indeed in bad case, and almost  at his wit's ead.  Bad management is of course the  first thing, seized upon on which to lay  the blame for all these wojs. It is  the easiest and consequently the most  natural. It would bo futile of course  for anyone not thoroughly well versed  in the vagaries and unoortaini-ios of  the fruit marketing business to attempt to criticize or defend the general policy of tho association. Only  those who are in close touch witb affairs can sav anything worth listening  to as to whether the Okanagan organization can regard itself as iu a  position to establish a direct connection with tho consumer cutting out the  middlemen, who it must not bo forgotten ropreecnt the machinery ot distribution. This iB a matter lot very  careful and cold calculation und possibly guarded experiment. To establish  such individual methods of inaa'keting  acquire salesmen, warehouses, storage and all the necessary aiarapherna*  Ka for reaching the consumer for tuch  a comparatively small volume of orop  might be h costly business, especially  when one considers the inevitable op-1  position irom established concerns. An-1  Parently, howover the desire is'strong  (or such an attempt to bo mule, tnd.  careful attention must be given lo it.  Apart, howover Irom the broad pol-'  icy   of   the   organization,    wholtfalo  charges' of   graft,    corruption, wilful  careleestiees and downright dishonesty  have been made, chiefly let us ������     under the    sm���rt of - disgust und disappointment with poor returns.     In jus-j  tioe, howover, not only to tho muna-  aror���and even Mr. Robertson is beginning to show signs of wear on J tear j  under this constant raking firo���but lo |  the chairman anil direotors who     ���re  laical men and growers, who nave suffered from the poor results as much as  anyone else, it must he admitted that  few indeed of these charges amounted  to attar, ,ofter an opportunity had been  given-for explanation.    Not that tho  oxplnnntion was  always   sotislor.loty. '  A man who haB worked all summer at  his   orop, expending his timo, mon  and energy on its production nnd has  receiver] instead ol payment a    moro!  pittance or a bill for balance of    ox-  praises   is a hard   person   to satijfy'  with explanations.   And iust hcri lies  the greatest danger of all, for if this  spirit of unreasoning apathy and op-  position is allowed lo got hoM, then  tbe nosition would indeed be hoivlc<<. <  Such an attitude would be tho greatest disaster of all r*nd unworthy  "of  those who claim tho hull-dog peitlpa-  citv of Britons.   Grumble if vou must  ���but keap on until a solution it f>und\  Conditions Menacing  Irrigation Undertakings  The following in from a communication by Mr. W. B. Pooley io the  "Vornon News" which from lis great  importance at the present timo wo  hnve been asked to reproduce:  Irrigation water is not onlv important to the Okunagan but it is essential. Any irregularity or deficiency of  supply has immediate and dcp.rrr.ble  effects on our agricultural output. A  cessation, through anv cause, spell*  ruin, not only to the Iruit irro-.ors  ami farmers but to retail metchr.nU  and investors of all kinds.  Much letfiBlation and discussion have  occurred since about KKK> on this subject, but we doubt if the person most  vitally interested, "the wator user/'  has boen muoh benefitted by tho  academic discussions and legal Ocaot-  montB,  Tho matter of greatest impc-runco  to tho main population of iho ,Okun-  ngnn is to get an ample suUiciency of  irrigation water for their needs when  thev want it, and a positive -ssurance  that at no time for any reason whatever will that vital sunnly cense.  How is it then witb the Okanagan?  What circumstances could arise to imperil the irrigation supply which is so  essential?  Water systems for the supply ci irrigation come under three heads: municipal systems, company systems, ond  systems owned by private individuals.  Approximately 90 per cent., of the irrigation systems are constructed' Iv  means of borrowed money, o*i which  interest varying from 5 :>er "-out,, to  8 per cent., has to be paid regularly.  There aro also the chargeB for administration, i.e., water bailiffs and engineers. Balances to properly ���!iMribute  and look after this -.crffregate (fi 000,-  000 undertaking, without '/Inch the  district would relapse for ihe Mont  part into the arid sage brush country  it formerly was. There is also, or  Bhould be a contingency fund for main  tenance and repairs to be provided,  which will be immediately available in  case of breakage or disaster to a system. As tho weakest link in t chain  is the strength of the chain, so the  weakest place in an irrigation system  is the strength of that system. It is  humnnlv impossible for tlnv system to  be strontr throughout���its* entire length  To meet these collective charges,  which must all be promptly discharged  what resources are there1? The revenue  collected for water rates on tho different systems. And if this revenue  be not sufficient, as it is in bcujcoI*-  any case, the balance has to tie obtained by the municipality, water company or individual, either from their  own resources or by further lowow-  ing of money. If as at the present  time borrowing is impossible, fur such  people with such unknown security,  and thoir available personal resources  arc a minus quantity, the result is that  there is no contingent fund for repairs,  and a small break Boon develops ;nio  a largo one and the system ii cut of  business for the future.  The interest not being paid on debentures and bonds, the debenture  holders step in and assume tho syt-.tom  which is their security. Thev do not,  however, run it unless the tv. stem  pays i.e., thoy in fow cases if at all  would be willing to place more money  to nrovide working capital or contingent funds, since thev would lie out  even their interest; and thoy would  not assume liabilit,. for damage, which  might occur from bursting ditchci or  rroos snniled through inadequate or  indifferent water administration.  Any arrears in water rates fiom  farmers makes tho position more  onerous, since primarily tho water  rates are the chief and only source of  revonue.  I have no hesitation in saying that,  through force of circumstances now  obtaining, oo irrigation system now  operating in tho Okanagan is without  one if not more of these inherent dan  gers, and it is in hopes of averting  this avoidable catastrophe. TneDe frank  words are written. By facing tho  truth boldly at once, apnlving the  proper remedy, not only can dis.ister  be avoided, but a stable and dependable condition assured for tho future.  Must it be left until a bad failure of  one and enormous loss thereby occasioned calls attention to tho rest*' It  may be h*fe.lv estimated that in those  systems whore the verv excellency nnd  nermnnancy of the works make for  small depreciation or possible p-ishap,  the initial cost will have entailed, bond  and debenture liabilities calling for  large interest payments, and whcio  these liabilities aro avoided Ihe less  permanent construction and moro  rapid depreciation makes n contin ent  fund of  lnr--n proportions  essential.  Tho case of financing presents the  same difficulties to both orivale corporations or municipalities: who now  own irrigation systems. The whole  matter is one that will hr. o'< -io do-  lav. Throughout thc district every  resource and means of .income not  founded on agriculture is practically  cut off, and this amdies, not only to  farmers but to all who supply tl em  with thoir daily needs.  Before the labor and expense of pro-  oaring for this year's crop is undertaken���a vear whioh promises ��n enormous demand for farm produce of all  sorts, and a year in which tho worldwide demand will outstrip mipi-I ��� fifty  fold, and a return Commensurate will  be within the farmer's ~rasp��� it is  necessary to insure that at ihe moment of fruition no Possible Irmk-  down of the all important irrigation  water shall rob him of his bard eurn-  od reward.  On the part of mu.iicipilitios and  irrigation companies no fnltc p'ide or  mistaken ideas should Wind them to  tne necessity of too ease,  As the eminent economist .Sir floo.  1'ainh recently pointed out: mi vain  companies for gain having publio  duties have special olaims for eon*  siderat ion to enable then; *Q r-rry ou,t  |WHEN&gYIN6YEAST|  |INSISTON HAVINGf  THIS PACKAGE  (Continued from Pajfe One./  their public obligations, citing tho  case of the immediate aid tendered by  tho government to enable the B.-nk of  England and the Stock Exchange to,  close and readjust very materially and  with government assistance (f.fit obli-.  gations to the public. For the same  reason most generous assistance was  tendered bv our Dominion (-cvcianient  to our chartered banks in '.mud,*,.  The very insistence of tho case, aud  the claims 0l the people onable the  government to regulate these affairs.  The very same reasons give tho people  of the Okanagan a claim to call on the  provincial government in this Matter.  That munioipalitioB and oom.wmes,  which under ordinary circumstances  would be able to carry out all their  obligations and be in a strong position to ensure the safety of their systems, are now faced with this unfortunate crisis is nothing for them io be  ashamed of. The situation is unprecedented; but under these same circumstances their nublic duty demands  af them a full realization of the position.  In the same way the people of the  Okanagan would be negligent of their  own welfare if being warned ,>f this  they did not lend all their united endeavor to extricate the distriot from  the difficulty.  This is no indictment of the Okanagan, of its land or its irrigation. It  is because the systems as n whole are  so excellent, and the land so fruitful,  that the matter is of such impo'tarce-  Wheve Wquhj British Columbia bo  without the Okanagan? Approximately seven-eights of the fruit Hit - '  comes from the Okanagan, and under  irrigation; n largo oart also of tho  vegetable supply, The best market for  const wholesalers lies in the district,  and it has grown larger vear bv vear.

POOLEY.  WORLD'S RECOHD FOR MILK  PRODUCTION  Tho 110,000 pound dairy cow has arrived in the person of the Holstein,  Tilly Alcartra, owned by A. W. Morris aiid Sons of California. On the  evening of November 13th, 1914, this  cow finished a year of semi-official tcBt  work with a production of -10,425.6  pounds of milk containing 951.3 pounds  of butter fat, thereby becoming the  world's champion milk cow.  Regarding the feed consumed during  the tost. Hoard's Dairyman gives the  following facts. "In producing a now  world's record for milk production,  Tilly Alcartra consumed ��� generous  quantity of well uonortioncd feeds, although she is not as heavy a feeder  as might In* supposed from hor grrat  production. She showed an especial  fondness* for stock beets, .ind these  with dried beet pulp and corn si'age  contributed the succulence to her ration. Her grain ration was ��� mixture  of one part barley, one oart oats, and  ono part bran. During the year an  accurate account was kept of her feed  and its cost, nnd the following table  shows her board bill:  Feed ubd cost ��or ton        Tost of feed  1828 lbs. oats (<- 830    $27.42  1626 lbs. barley <��; |23      21.02  1828 lbs. bran <<>  $27.50     23.13  1208 lbs. linseed oil mean flifcM   20.54  HSU lbs.    dried   beet   pulp  (ii. 822.00      7.50  3220 lbs. corn, silage Oh $2   .       3.23  10122 lbs. hav (a. 85        25.31  1 110 lbt. beets Q 82.50 . . .    13.92  Total cost of feed 8149.07  Figuring Tilly Alcartra simply as a  profit maker from milk production,  makes her a very valuable oow. Reduced to quarts her year's production  equals 14,164, and figuring lho value  of the milk at four cents ner quart  <rives her a oredit of 8566,56 for the  vear, or a margin of 8417.49 over hor  feed.   4   So complete is every detail of the  British commissariat system that our  men in the fighting line ��re being supplied with fresh water, which is carried daily across the channel from  Dovor.  SEE  The Trey  o' Hearts  AT  The Opera House  Every Monday  Mission Creek, where an extensive cut  had been made and the oreek s; tightened. The approaches to the bridge  crossing from the K.L.O., bench to  the Belgo lands had also been made at  the instance of the board. Another  matter upon which they hid also  brought a good deal of pressure to '  bear was in tho drudging, of Okanagan  River, and the putting in of a look  at the foot of the lake. Men wero already there, said Mr. Elliott, and he  believed, at work.  More might have been accomplished  continued the preaident, but for the  unfortunate financial conditions. Tne  city's promised ��� donation hnd failed  to materialize, and had left the board  in an awkward' position. Howover ho  believed that if all w0uld "ull together  in the new year and help to get new  members tho work of the officers would  be made muoh lighter.  In concluding he broached the sub  ioct of the annual BubsoriDtion whie)  he said had been raised two "ears ago  to 810, and was tho cause of much  dissatisfaction. He believed the 1-onrd  would be acting in its own interest bv  reducing it.  The financial statement as reid by  the secretary made a rather poor |h ���*���*  ing, though there still remain-id a surplus of assets over liabilities of $R27  95. The revenue account for *ho j.a��t  year was as follows;  Depreciation.���  Real estate 8300.00  Office building . .     88.20  Office furniture .       16.23     SdO-l.-U)  Subscription bad debts for  vear 1913    .. 285,00  Petty cash    disbursements  ..  58.00  Salaries  a     .,  1-37.60  Advertising & publicity    ...  ..   187.13  Office expenses    ..   175JS3  aSundrv expenses      .  ..     84.16  Associated Boards of Trades'  ..    27.00  *%25'.l.41  Rent    *   70.00  Members subscriptions  Absent members 9210.

In taking hiB scat in the  chair Mr. Benson briefly tlnin'aod the  members, for the honor whi,m ti r  had conferred upon him an 1 slated  that while he would not have muvh  time at his disposal he would alu his  bost to keep thc organization to^-othei  nnd to further its interests.  Mr. N. D.

Mayor Jones (rave notice of a ina<tion  at the next meeting to reduce Ihe annual subscription from }10 fair city  members and 85 for country i!:iw!<ert  to |5 for city members and $3 for  country members.  Though no one apparently disagreed  with the proposal to reduce lhe fee,  there was somo little difference of  opinion as to tho making of a distino-  tion in favor of country momberB. Mr.  Elliott thought that uniform rate  should be charged all round, and moreover advocated that unpaid subscilp-  tions for 1914 bo reduced to <). "hit  however raised a storm of disse'it, as  unfair to those who had already raid  810. The matter however will be decided at the noxt meeting.  Mr. W. R, Pooley spoke at some  length on tho precarious condition into whioh the continued finanoial depression had placed the irrigation undertakings of tho valley, his remr.rks  following the lines of �� communication  published by him in the "Vcrno"  News" and whioh is reproduced in another column of this issue, 'lho immediate danger was due to the laa-k of  contingent fund with whioh i-mall  breaks could be repaired ..nd "rovonted  from putting the whole system oat of  commission and to the inability of  companies meeting interest on their  debentures, thereby incurring the risk  of aiesuro by the bondholders.  Ho submitted a rough draft if a  resolution asking the iMvornm nt to  either ataumo control of lho rrigatior  works, or to intervene in tuch a way  as to prevent a disaster to :>oa>n!o depending upon tho water supply for  their crops.  HaVor Jones speaking on 'ho matter  said thev all realized the value ol water to the valley. .When Ihoy.fiitt  cgme into tho district thoy had boon  told that water was kin-?, anil now  they could see how true that was. He  went on to indicate some of the tremendous effects of tho building up of  irrigation systems on >tho nrogra-as of  tho valley. The oxpgrts from the  valley of fruit last year were oyer 2,-  000 cars valued at over . million nnd  a quarter, and nc���rlv all of this was  anaiwn on irrigated land. The i.ovns in  the irrigated sections wero ummgtt  the most prosperous I* the valley.  Some of the old crude avgtaims which  had been first Installed hud smce been  replaced by modern, up-to-date systems equal to nnvthing nn tho .'iw-ri-  can continent. The condition into  which some of tho irrigation companies had fallen was not due to o"  fault of their own but laivelv lo a  falling oB in land sales, which wtrr  neoesBary to croate sufficient tovenue  to make them pay.

It was "eiv necessary that a strong appeal be made  to the government to safeguard thote  who had invested money in land or  in loans and mortgages. The government -had been endeavoring recently to  cope with the water situation in the  province bv Passing wates ?egislation,  but this did not go far enough to give  the needed finanoial assistance i.ow.  Mr. R. B. Kerr suggested that a  special appeal be mado for support to  tho Hon. Prioe Kliison, who was a  strong advocate of government ownership of irrigation.  Mr. Hewetson pointed out lhe freat-  ly increased revenue which the government derived from taxes because of the  increased value of land --��it undaar irrigation.  It was finally decided after further  discussion that a committee cnusistinp'  of tho presidont t nd secretary with  Messrs J. W. Jones, Carruthers, Pool-  oy, Adams, Hewetson and Grov-.*, be  appointed to draw up - strong resolution dealing with tho problem.  Mr. Leckie caused somo anuisaament  by asking if the momborB uf iho board  woro aware that tho C.P.R., had recently issued tariffs with Kelovna indicated as a flag station, lie Ht'la it  was no lau"hinp matter as he had had  shipments of freight sent prepaid on  account of this. He said it was evidently an error in the printing of tbt  tariffs, and he suggested that the htti*  offioe at Montreal bo notified of it and  asked to correct it.  Mr. S. T. Elliott in replv io * vote  of thanks to the retiring -iresidont and  officers, broup-ht. up tho ouestion ot a  free lorry from Kelowna and the west  side of the lake. Ho said the time  waa opportune to push thit ''a-iucst  with tho government, as vliere was  now a good wagon road aU tliai way  to tho south, tho missing link between  Peachland and Summerland hiving  been reoently completed. He complained of the expense entailed in crossing the ferrv with en automobilo���12  to 12.50 each way which was to" big  a orioe to Pay. The government already <rrnnt��d a subsidy of 111*00 and  there was no reason why thev should  not vront a little more, and make  nossible n free ferry. This would not  only bo an eooouragement to taaurists  but would be a irreat help to sal tiers  over .the lake who had to come to  Kelowna once or twice a week.  Mayor Jones said ho had i at*tn up  the matter with tho -overnment two  vears ago and had boon iohl that  thoro woro no free ferries, supported  entirely !>������ the -overnment. i,nd tho  onlv way we could get one hero was  for the citv to assume the liability  for the difference between the government grant of $1000 and tho tost ol  maintaining a ferrv. This would coat  the citv' about 81500 a voar and had  conditions been dilTorent, he had intended brlncintf tho matter beforo the  council. Thev could then consider  whether the extra business for Kelowna would Justify .tho oxpi>nse.  Soveral members, however irav.* instances of -laces which thev claimed  had freo government ownod ferries and  it wat docided to make represent,!!  to the government.  Mr. R. B. Kerr drew attention  the need of moro r-eneral informn  as to tho times of the yoar at ��  tho different varieties of a.nnlos  ready for eating.    He said that  I  people wore very ignorant of this  the result was that apples wero   a  condemned as of poor quality    \  they were simplv not ready for a-at  This kind of thing kopt down <Lo  of apples, and caused a rood rici  disappointment   to purchasers,  place like this where   all kinds of  pies were produced,   if a person  what varieties to buy, he could  supplied with apples ready tor  at almost all seasons of the yoar.  boliovod that even the grocers af  lowna did not know much about  matter.

That this latter view however whs  ooen to debate was evident from the  tone of several subsequent speakers. .  Mr. W. A. Scott thought it would  he well to enquire into the propotal  us it mignt work out all right il such  a man would pay a lair price for tiie  cream, and take all responsibility ol  the business upon himself.  Mr. A. Put, .son described Ihe principle u|>on whioh ho said, two-thirds,  of the creameries in Ontario wer/, run  namely, the owner of the ceanitry  made the butter at to much por pound  and the product remained the property  of the farmers, who had their Own  salesmen. He himself had run a  cheese factory for a number of years  un that plan, getting 2 flints per  pound for making the cheese. He believed the usual price for putter making was about 6 cents.  Mr. It. Storey taid that ,'n the curly  days of Manitoba, Alberta 'ind Saskatchewan the government had built  creameries on some tuoh plan, charging three or four cents per -Mind for  butter making. Tbe creameries were  afterwards told to the farmers.  Turning to the regular business o!  the meeting the president, Hr. lien ron  gave his report of the year's work, detailing the various meetings wl.icii had  been held. The institute though in a  flourishing condition should receive a  much greater measure of support, and  he hoped that every larmer would  would make it his business .luring the  present year to add his name to the  members' list. He thanked the directors for thoir work and aticuduice.  during the year.  Tho secretary's report and  linuncial  statement followed showing a twlunce  to the credit of the Institute oi WIG7.87  Tht election ol ofneert resulted    as  follows:  President.���Lionel E. Taylor.  Vice President.���M. Hereron.  Directors.���R. L. Dalglish, (Miscion);  C!, 0. Prowso (Glenmore); A. McQuur-  rie, (South Kelowna); R. .M. Hart (K.  L.O.); W.

Wilkinson was ar united auditor by the meeting, another I > bo  chosen later by the directors.  A discussion followed -jn the time-  honored themo of noxious weed., several complaints being made thit tho  law was not being enforced, and aft n  consequence Canadian thistles and  other pests wore increasing at an  alarming rate.  Mr. Taylor mentioned that the district weed inspector had been unniud  during the year but owing to tho very  largo district he had to cover he had  beep unable to do more than miueat a  a lew farmers he had met to out their  thistles. No attempt had beon made  to enforce the law. Uo advisod lumen to adopt the-plan ol reporting to  the government anv instance of neglect  of weeds, as it was decidedly unfair  for one man to go to the trouble ol  cutting hiB weeds if his neighbor me.de  all his efforts vain by their neglect.  'It was decided to send a resolution  to Victoria asking tbe government to  appoint an inspector for the district  from Duck Lake to Okanagan Mission,  with instructions to get after nil offenders.  Mr. Taylor drew particular attention  to the short courses in agricultural  science which the government had arranged to hold in Kelowna, and which  have already been announced iu the  columns ot the "Record". He pointed  out the great value of the knowledge  whioh would be imparted at tht meetings and urged that everyone possible  should take advantage of them.  Mention was mado ol a letter of Mr.  A. R. Pooley's appearing in tbe Vernon Nows (reproduced in this iaisuo) regarding tho situation ol the irrigation  companies ot the valley and it wus  decided to forward tho follo.ving resolution to the government oalling attention to the matter;  "Whereas it is evident that there is  grave reason to suppose that tho  necessary and regular supply ul irrigation water duriuar thu coining  year will bo soriouslv interfered with  owing to tho difficulties arising from  tho present war conditions wheiebv  private corporations are un��hle to  further finance the systems' requirements or make provision tor necessary replacements and ropuirs as  thev occur. And whereas this meeting iB of tho opinion that it import's  tho country's wolfaro and aivon existence to allow bo important a function as water supply to rennm in  any private hands,  Be it therelore resolved that this  meeting of tbo Kelowna Farmer's Institute respectfully oall unnn (he nr��-  vinoial government to immediately  take aotion to eithor thomselvet acquire tho irrigation systems tributary to Kelowna distriot, or m..ke  such other arrgngemonts as will stu-  balize and ensure the wator sin ���'  in the future,"  A resolution was also passed ..in the  motion ot Mr. J.

Burns, the Canadian Meat  King, bids fair to outrival Mr. Jim  Hill, the American Railroad King, as  a philosopher and a distributor of'  wholesome advice, A short time ago j  he fell into the hands of a reporter  and this is tho way he ixn-i-ssed himself:  "Everything is all right. We're very  rooky to be as woll off as we e.-e. Wo  might easily be enduring the horrors  of war on tho battlofiold, instead of!  being permitted to eo to bed ,,nd;  sleep soundly o' nights. We havo not  much to complain about,  "What can you expect but a    little  discomfort   when   iho greatest    war.  over known is raging?   continued   Mr.'  Burns. This country, us a part of the  British Empire, is at war to iust the '  same extent as England, yet no hard- '  ly realize it.    Because business is     a '  little dull wo go about nrowling.   Wo  are mighty lucky, I can toll viu���wo  might all bo digging tronehes; then wo  would   have    something   to complain  about.  "The business outlook? Why, that'B  all right. The country is just a* good  as ever it was. There are as niaoy  fish in the sea, as much limber ��r  mineral us 'ever��� wo havon't scrr.lch-  od our resources as vet. so what is  thoro to be downhearted [about?  Thero is only one thing tho mutter  with Canada��� there are too n  people in tho cities. Thoy must give  up tho notion of making money from  one another und get out and go to  work. That will prove the siiK'.atiani  of this country, for tho people to realize that tho real basis of permanent  prosperity is work.  "Thoy had a good wheat crop last  year on tho Prairies, thoy are getting higher prices than over and there '  will bo a largor crop than over before  in the history of the country next  year, if all goes well. I am not a  -bit' gloomy over tho outlook, nn-1 1  havo perhaps as much nt stuko in this  weslorn country as most people.  "Tiie war, I am suro, will work tn  the ultimate advantage of all of us  if it rids us, as I boliove it will, of  thnt craze for all things nitificial  rejected in hobble skirts, tenio leas  and other forms of silly dissipation  which soize and possoss a foolish  people in times when money is easily  made in the many forms of speculation.

In the course of my cable carom* I  have handled codo cipher -letpnicheB  of every description���codes composed  of Words, of figures, of letters anil  even of jumbles of letters and llffUrCQ.  They muat all ho so compiled us to  defy "milking" by tho Inquisitive  enomy, who might secure oopies by  treacherous means.  The British Government officers generally- use codes composed of vrroUDS of*  five figures, and during such s'ininr  times aB theso their cipher despatches  consists of anything from 10 lo 2000  of .illili) groups. Kngland nays the  highest cable bill of anv crreat power  for its interests aro world-wide, und  complicated, "incidents" are constantly nooessitatln-T long cipher des"atohes  for their settlemi>nt.

Admiralty,  Britain controls most ol the .vo*id's  ocean cables. What disgusts tho Kaiser  is that whenever he vearns io cable  abroad his imperial behests, such despatches must necessarily pan through  British hands. While creating his navy  he started laving ocean cables, but he  has nut, so far, laid many. Slrangly  enough, lho first cable to bo uit during the present war belonged to a  I -crman comnanv.  Government messages pay half rates  ami lake precedence of ordinary traffic. British "(lovermmnt's" pass before all other "Governments," When  these despatches aro in figure groups  thev are always repeated Imck, to prevent errors. I remember ono luckless  operator so muddled Up nn Important  despatch from Queen Victoria to the  Vicerov of India, thut serious oll-cial  complications resulted. Ho wus fined  a mouth's nay.  Most official messages from the King  of Kngland are addressed, "Kin  London." On tho Government lines  they are always "rished"��� that is to  say. the line is cleared for them. Cabll  companies rush such messages through  promptly, but thoy seldom actually  clear the line. #  When King George was sailoring in  Canada ho and his mother. Queen Alexandra, used to correspond bv eable,  using n dainty private code composed  of some quaint-looking words, rs-gna*  turos: "Mother Dear," "George." Of  Course the King had private ciphers  with his sailor son, the Viceroy of India, the Governor-General o!

Probably tho world's most sensation  al cablegram wus that tout by tho  Kaiser to 1'resident Kruger. Tho historic despatch generated such wai like  passion in Knglund that Lord Salisbury mobilized n flying BqUidron and  Britain appeared likely to find herself  at war with (iermany. But the dread  conflict was happily postponed.  It is being fought today.  Who aro tho biggost cablors? I  should sav Lloyd's Shinning Agency,  for they have sleepless npents in every  corner of tho world, keenly watching  for shipping!! arrivals, departures,  casualties, etc, whioh they instantly  notify by cable to London.

Codo compiling is now n recognized  pi-ofcssion nnd its highly naid experts  must possess exceptionall ability, patience, nnd above all, nerves of steel,  Tho leading code specialist in London  assured mo that after finishing tt big  job he felt exhausted, mentally and  physically, thut he invariably swore he  would never start another. But a big  check, a holiday and another tempting  order usually produced magic results.  Bash amateur codo compilers usually  collapse from nervous breakdown. A  certain bnnk manager, considering the  chargo of compiling a code "perfectly  outrageous" pavlv announced, "I'll do  it in my spare time." The code specialist bowed, retired and waited. About  Bix weeks later he had an urgent call  from the bank. On arrival ho found a  new manager, who said:  Oh, vou remember that code?   Yon  can do it."  But    where is Mr. X., tho   fo'.mer  manager?"  "Oh, he Btarted to compile tbe codo.  Tho 'Poor fellow broke down .tnd is  now in a lunatic asylum."

The number of r".h<h-  oners, ns far as could bo lsnerinincd  had fallen from 720 to 022 baptized  members of the church. Ho referred to  lhe great loss which hud befaden tht  Parish in tho departure of Mr. G, Slat  er, who wus at this time, in con.mon  with somo -IU or 50 others of tlio congregation, doing his duty with our  soldiers ut tho front or in the training camps.  lie also referred to tho election of a  Bishop of the Diocese, and informed  the meeting that choice of a ..��hico of  residence hud not yet boon made.  He thanked tho retiring wardens for  their assistance, as well as -he members of the committee, naming especially Messrs, Uorrie and Fishor, for  their constant help and advice, lie  also referred with fooling to Lhe splendid efforts of the Ladies of the W .A.  and tho Chancel Guild, remurkiiug that  they invariably put tho men to shame  when there was work to be dono. Ho  concluded with an appeal f>.>r assistance to carry on tho work pf the Sun  day school.  'i'lio financial statement was then  read and explained in tho usual lucid  manner by Mr. L. K.

'Ihe  account owing for so long lo tho  Kelowaa Sawmill Co.i was also refer  red to. and mention was mado of tht  fact that $250.00 had been deducted  from this account and no interest!  charged in all tho years it had been  running.

Tho meeting then proceeded to the  election of People's Warden; after Dr,  Shepherd and Mr. P. DuMoulin had  been proposed and had declined the  office.

Uefore the war got properly under  way, there were seyeral English firms  that unwittingly allowed their rubber  to leak out and ultimately be reoeived  in German hands, but aow they understand the importation tricks ol the  Germans, and the British government  has issued an ordor prohibiting the  export from Kngland.  An outstanding laot to be .remembered is that nearly all the plantation  rubber available every year��� alout  70,000 tons��� is produced within the  ritish Empire and is oontrollod by  British firms. There is a littlo grown  in the Dutch East Indies, and Aincri-  can houses control a few Eastern plan-  nations. But tho gre��t bulk of the  ��� iliantation rubber iB brought to Iou-  ilon, and in normal times large quantities are transhi"ied to Iermany.  Ilencoforth no supplies will be Hint  out ot tho country exoept undt>r a  license. Presumably large auaDtities  will continue to be shipped to our  Allies. Within the last three months  iho value of rubber sent to Ilussia���  Inrcrclv it is stated for army snow  I'oots���has been enormous, and ell  France needs she will get.  Of about 2,000 tons lying ftt Antwerp it is understood that only 100  [ons remained when tho GermanB took  Possession of the port.  Prohibition of exports means aimon >  father Uiin.rH, that tho representatives  in T.ondam of American firms vill not  be able to fulfil their contracts, Tho  lTnited States herself requires ltrgo  aaiantities of rubber, but there is reason to believe that rubber has been  ��cnt from England to the I'nited  States nnd has been ro-oxpnrtetl there  to Germnnv via Italv or Holland.  Although merchants in tho Unittjl  States at present will not be ablo to  receive supplies of plantation rubber  through T.nnilon. there will still be the  wild rubber available. Brazil imntia'-  Iv exports about 40,000 tons, of which  rather more than half comes to Enir-  Und and rather Icbs than half goes  to the United States. The latter country- usunllv tnkes about n third of the  world's sunnlv. so. should she receive  lho whole of the Brazilian oroduotion  Ihere would remain little for export  to Eurone.

It mutt be admitted at the  start that, a Treat manv people would  unhesitatingly answer thete quurlion,  in tha affirmative. But these nre generally persons, who are directly connected with the trade aad who depend  for their living on tht liberal Patronage of the bar.  But we mutt remember in every discussion of this question that it is   the  people of Canada who are really   enraged in the liquor business, for    by  their   vote, it is perm Wed nnd sanctioned, for the most part, in the   Ijo-  minion of Canada.    Now usually     i  anv other vocation if a man finds   it  does not nav and cannot be mado   to  oav, he quits and turns to some other  calling more profitable.   Naturally one  would suppose that if the attention of  [all fair minded people was directed to  the enormous economic waste connected with the drink traffic, as compared  with the    revenue derived   therefrom,  they   would   be so incensed over tbe  loss sustained that they would    take  the very first opportunity of banishing  the bar room and stopping tho loss.  However, able writers on this   subject and brilliant champions of prohibition for vears have been endeavoring  to make the truth known on this joint  but as vet the people of Canada ns a  whole Ihavo not been aroused to  action.  The    drink     traffic   with its ttirible  watte of the country's resources   and  strenarth still goes on unchecked, litis  is due    partly to the fact that those  engaged in the trade making suoh   a  large profit, circulate their money freely, thereby blinding the eyas of many  to' the real situation. Another reason  is that manv who are addicted to the  use of alcohol have their -twors    of  porcention so dulled and stupified that  they cannot a.-"rehend olearlv Iho real  condition of things.    And i third ran-  son   is to be found   in the fact thit  manv people who themselves aire nit  given to the use of liquor, vet aro so  utterly regardless of their responsibility for others that,   when tbo opportunity   to vote   out the traffic comes  they    are   conspicuously    absent bom  the.polls.   Vigorous campaigns of education, agitation and legislation must  be continued until all the people shall  bo led to tee just at how treat a   loss  tho drink business it carried on lav the  people of Canada. ��  The aotual spending of money in intoxicating liquor is not the only ��aste  of wealth chargeable to the drink system. There it a serious loss of wealth  production, through idleness ol men  who an out of employment Iwonuso of  drinking habitt of themselves nnd others. There is the loss through the premature death of men, who bad they  lived might have been faotora in the  production of wealth. Than is the  loss sustained through inefficiency of  boys and girls, who for lack of proper  care and nurture in childhood rover  arrive at the highest standard at  workers. There it tht Iota through  directed labor employed in the manufacture of large quantities of liquor  for unworthy purposes. There is the  lots through the use of ursine that  would otherwise be used for food pro-  duett.  And if a oountry is to be judged  bv the type of character which its citizens possess, who shall estimate the  lott sustained by the Dominion of Canada by reason of the drink traffic,  whose intoxicating beverages from the  time they issue from the "coiled and  poisonous worm of the distillery" until thev empty into the river if death  oorrupt, demoralize and debase every  one that touches theml Every open  saloon it a plague spot of pollution,  a tohool of tin, flasning itt gilded  temptation in the face of every passerby, and there it not one living soul in  the community however pood he or  the may be, who does not suffer loss  in some measure through the prenence  of the saloon in tht community.  Statistics are usually dry and uninteresting, but to the careful investigator of the eoonomio aspect of tho drink  traffio thev oast n flood of light upon  the problem. Let ut take a few figure! for Canada compiled 'rout the  Oovernment Blue Books for tho year  ending March 31, 1811. The total quon  tities of intoxicating beverages of different kinds entered for consumption  in Canada in that year were:  Gallons  Canadian spirits ..*.. ..   .   1,146,459  Imported spirits        2,1*91.956  Canadian malt liquors . . ���:i,760,883  Imported malt liquors .. .   1,103,155  Imparted wines        $03,889  After consultation wl'h experienced  men, aa to what would be a reasonable basis for a calculation, to aeoor-  tain the amount actually naid by the  consumers for the quantities ot liquor  upon whioh duty ia collected. Hr, F.  S. Spenoe, of Toronto, our most relia-  able authority on temperance questions gives the total coat to He 8P1,-  392,969.10. Thit gives an aotual itr  oapka expenditure for intoxiciling liquors for the year 1911 of '1130.  Enormous as this eoonomio waste it,  it it by no means the 'greatest waste  which the oountry suffers throai.li the  liquor traffic  In thete days of wonderful progress  in the development of the country's  resources, it must be apparent to everyone that there is a great amount  of idleness. Why is this soT An unprejudiced answer declares emphatically that drink is a large factor in causing thit idleness, and consequently in  lossening the country's wealth production. A royal commission >-^���in*  ted some time ago examined a great  manv employers of labor, and the  moeral tettimony of theee men wat  that much time is lost bv drinVm"  employees, and that work ia frequently Infsrhrtd with, MtfrftnMt seriously  by the absenoe of incapacity of drinking men. Of course thit lots is augmented through th* prevention of  wealth production on account of the  persons who are in jails, in'hospitnls,  in asylums,'out of employment or in  any way idle when intemperance has  caused the idleness.  In this connection it must be recognised that, in any faotory or other  place where a gang of men work . together, the quality of the .work done  as well as tne quantity turned out depends on the efficiency of the workmen. If, therefore, through drink the  efficiency of ont or more men it impaired and time lott the whore institution employing them suffers interference and loss.  The economic watte incurred by  drink it very hard to determine for  the reason that we hape no available  arid reliable statistics covering every  detail. Some effort however hat been  made to foroximate thit lost. The  matter was inquired into tome years  ago by an English parliamentary committee, the report of .whioh contains  the following statement: **  '"Hie lots of productive labor in every department of occupation, it to the  extent ot at least one day in six  throughout the kingdom, by which  the. wealth of the country oreated, as  it is, chiefly by labor, is retarded or  suppressed to the extant of one million of every tix million that is produced, to say nothing of the constant  derangement, imperfection and destruction in every agricultural and manufacturing process, occasioned ny the  intemperance aod consequent uns'.ill-  fulness, inattention and neglect of  those affected by intoxioation, and  nroduoing irreat injury in our domestic  and foreign trade.'*  Perhaps Canada suffers less in   this  respeot    than Great Britain, for    the  reason that ours it a more sober people.    Still the   waste is    very great.  The Hon. Geo. E. Foster and the Hon.  Geo. W. Ross both estimated that one-  tenth of the producing Power of    the  country is destroyed bv intemperance.  A special census of Canadian manufacturing    industries    tor the year 1903  showed that the output in that vrar  was 8706,446,579.    Now    on the basis  of tho estimate   made by Mr. Foster  and Hr. Ross, Canada lost in    that  vear   alone    through non product^  caused bv drink (70,614,657.40. I have  no hesitation in saying that I believe  this    to be a very   conservative estimate of the loss the country sustains  through    idleness caused bv intemperance.  Airain a great Iobs is sustained  through misdirected labor in the liquor business. Take, for instance the  manufacture of any article such as  furniture. He takes tho raw material  in tbe shape of the wood of our for-  etst and through skilled workmanship  unon it turns out useful articles. He  has by that process enriched the community bv the difference, between the  value of the raw material as it cBmo  into Mb faotory, and the finishod artiole of furniture standing in the customer's home. The same principle applies to anv other useful industry.  It is quite different, however, with  the liquor maker and the liquor seller.  In this oase, the grain fitted by na.  ture, for tne sustenance of man aud  beast, is by the liquor maker? oetleted  of every particle of value to the community and turned into that which has  cursed thousands of the finest homes  of our land and has resulted in sor-  sow, suffering-, poverty, insanity, hatred, vioe, murder. The expenditure of  money in intoxicating beverages is  worse than wasted, for it beoomes a  producer of injured health, shortened  lives, disease, remorse, crime, pollution.  It cannot be denied that the liquor  trade requires and receives a tremendous amount of business ener<-v. foresight, physical power, capital and  time of shrewd, capable men. Hnd the  ability of theee men been directed into  other proper channels the nation's  wealth would be vastly increased.  There ore probably at the pretent time  not lets than 9000 men directly connected with thit busineti in Canada.  Allowing that eaoh man is worth to  the country 1600 above his cost of living. , you have an annual loss to the  nation in misdirected labor of at least  14,000,000.  Manv attempts have been made to  get at the lots sustained bv the coin-  try through premature deaths caused  by intemperance. Though accuracy is  impossible vet the efforts have not  been unrewarded, for manv untimely  deaths oan be traced directly and indirectly to theO ute of intoxicantB as  a beverage. The carelessness that  leads to fatal accidents is often the  result of the dulling bv drink of the  keenness of men's mental faculties.  Recent investigations by eminent medical men have given ut knowledge of  the toot that tuberculosis l.equently  finds itt origin in drinking practices  and facilities, and that its progress's  accelerated by the same causes. This  applies to many other vital disturbances and weakness whoh are not  directly attributed to strong drink.  In England, Dr. Noman Kerr undertook an extensive injuiry among a  large number of physicians, at to how  many of tbt deaths lor which they  gave certificates were traoeable directly or indirectly to the drinking habits  of the deceased or someone else, with  the avowed object of proving the falsity of the assertion to often made by  temperance people that 60,000 drunkard! dit every year in the United him*  dom. Hit oonc,utions were that  the statement whioh be started out to  disprove fell thoit of fully expressing  the magnitude of the evil it reprossnt-  ed. Dr. Sir Benjamin Ward Richardson, after a oartful inquiry, was convinced that ten per cent., of all the  deaths in Great Britain oamo earlier  than they would were it not for the  drinking habit. A similar investigation conducted in the United States  led to the tame conclusion!  Now, at we have already staled,  there is less drinkuur in Canada than  if either of thete other two countries,  vet almost every issue of anv great  daily newtnaner gives us - vivid si or  of some terrible fatality directly attributed   to ttrong drink.    We would'lartjH  probably be well within the mark if  we estimated the number of deaths in  Canada from drink at halt that of  Great Britain. That is to say, five  per cent., of Canada's mortality results from intemperance. If the total  number of deaths in Canada for 1911  was approximately 109,900, then five  per cent., would give 5,445 f.s the  number hurried t0 an early graze by  strong drink. Assuming that if these  people had been abstainers they would  on tho average have lived ten years  longer, and allowing $500 as a fair  valuation of eaoh man's labor annually, you have an annual financial loss  to the nation in the shortening ol life  alone of not less than 327,225.000.  Thero is one other channel of    loss  to which I must briefly refer    Leforo  concluding this paper, viz: The outlay  made necessary by drinking. A   careful'examination of the oost of    maintaining asylums and prisons, administration of justice, amounts "iven    to  hospitals and charities, and munucipu'  expenditures for similar purposes   we  have   a   total outlay of 314,174,571.  The Hon. Sir Oliver Howat, n    man  of cautions and conservative temperament,    as   well as of wide experience  and close observation, stated   in   tho  Ontario legislature, when i,e va* leader of the provincial government, that  in his   opinion, not less then   thice-  fourths of the    poverty, vice, disease  | .and crime which afflicted the country  ' was chargeable   to the evil of intemperance.   Let us be more nodwate and  take one half of the public rxpei diture  as the amount incurred bv *i nor traffic and we have 37.0S7JS5 is ih�� i.n  necessary expenditure oi the nation in  the liquor business.  Looked at from these points of view  I have been discussing   the   economic  waste of the liquor traffic, it seems to  be   enormous.      But somebody says,  "Look at the immense revenue   which  the government derives from the business. The public business of the country   could   not be carried on without  this revonue."    Let a balance    sheet  be provided.    Place on one sidea     thc  aggregate of Dominion, i>ro\ u-cial and  municipal revenues, amountin? to 119,-  342,924.   On the other side place the  total of the figures I have aiven vo  of 3190,340,312. The balance ihaaws   n  net    Ions    of 3171,006,888.     In other  words, the cost    of maintaining    the  drink traffic by the people of the Dominion of Canada is nearly ten time''  as great as the revenue derived Herefrom.    It thnt arood business?     Does  it pay?    Surely no rational person of  average intelligence will be found    to  answer in thc affirmative.   Then 'wly  does the business continue? For   two  reasons perhaps. First tho individuals  in the business lind it immensely   profitable    personally.' and possessed    of  oraat wealth use it aB a means to purchase   the toleration alike of legislators and electors.   In the second plr.ee  the lust for train is a sin of communities as well as of individuals, and the  lioenoe lee at a means for easily mis-J  ing tho public revenue retiuiri-d,    has  been   used   to blind tho eyes of.   the  "eople who have the tower to deitr��a.  the traffic, root ond branch, to    the  KMBIXVI  real m'ure of the burdens they    are  bearing through drink.  Let. therefore the great work of agitation and education .go. on and in  time legislation will be secured which  will prevent men from making money  by selling drink. Then the public  treasury will be n- longer enriched by  the suffering and wretchedness of the  people.

POLICE REPORT  The chief of police submitted the following report for the month oi December:  Sin,���I hereby have the honor to  submit my report for the month of  December, 1814.  On the Sth day of December it v. as  reported that somo person or (.arsons had out a bole in the wire netting of a cage in the oity Dart and  that two full grown owls ��>nfii.ed  therein had beon either stolen or released.  On the ll'th da.v of December a  man named Eugene Bonjean was  caught by Constable Gibb on Water  street in the act of stealing a quantity of firewood, the property of the  oity. He was brought before Magistrate Weddell, charged with thc  offence and fined S10.00.  On the 14th of December tho bartender of one of the oity hotels was  summoned for .implying a person  who follows the Indian mode of life  with liquor���this being a violation  of the Indian Liquor Act. As then  was not sufficient evidence to prove  the charge the case was dismssed.  On the 21st > of December a Kurd  who gave the name of .iohenna  Corgis and claiming to be an Archdeacon of the Orthodox Greek church  with headquarters at Jelemark, Kurdistan, Asia Minor arrived in Kelowna and started to solicit subscriptions for a certain fund. This  man had in hiB possession a lar  number af credentials from nooplc in  Canada, but only one from his own  country. .Some years ago several  prominent citizens were badly victimized by a man of this typo, it  would be well for the public to be  on their guard and not allow their  generosity to get the better of them  when dealing with strangers from  such remote parts of the earth.  During the month several complaints were received about people  throwing garbage, etc., into Mill  Creek, thereby contaminatin- the  oity water supply. In one onso several puppies were killed ind tnrov/n  into this stream; feathers, tins, etc.,  have also been seen floating down  into the lake. This is a vory serious matter and I intend to tuke  proceedings against the .'irat person  detected in the aot of polluting the  above mentioned creek.  Now that tho orange season has  commenced I would sugirest that the  public be warned against the ex-  tremel,' dangerous practice ol throw*  ing orunge peel on the sidewalks. II  this is not stopped serious accidents  may result therefrom.  During the past year a -rent deal  of trouble has been caused by certain unscrupulous persons, who, for  their own nefarious ends saippliod  interdicts with liquor. In nearly  every oaso those people know fullv  woll what they are doing, but, if  they onlv realize the amount of poverty .nd unhtvppiness oaused bv their  despicable conduct, they would probably desist.  During the month of December several persons who had not 'Hid their  Dog Tax for the vear 1914 avert summoned to appear in court. In every  case they were ordered by tho Magistrate to pay the tax with nn additional $2.60 costs.  Cases brought before Magistrate  Weddell during tho month worn aB  follows:  Larceny 1; assault, 1-. inter iicts  drunk, 2; drunk and disorderly, 2;  supplying Indian with liquor, 1;  keeping dogs without license, 5; total 12.  Persons interdicted, 2; Jogs destroyed, 2; fires, 1.  Fines collected and paid to oity  clerk, 142.60.  R. W. THOMAS,  Chief of Police.  Two formal resolutions, submitted by  the Bank of Monereal were ������������ased, the  first dealing with the unpaid haluncu  of a loan of 140,000 against current  revenue', whioh tt was necessary lor tho  new council to acknowledge and con  firm, tho same allying to the second  on a loan of (10,000 against sidewalk  debentures.

Bell; Secretary, Mr.  G. M. Watt; the members of the executive being Messrs M. Horeron end G.  Whitaker. Several matters of importance wero brought forward, amongst  which was a proposal to introd tee a  thoroughbred stallion under government auspices, Mr. R. Booth lacing appointed to collect names of members  in support of the movement. The  question of storing and the botier* distribution of wator from Sootty (reek  was also fully gone' into, and from  information ta hand it waB considered  that a workable scheme could be arranged and rarried out as soon ns the  frost would permit the work to be undertaken. In the meantime, Mr.  Young, ti.o water commissioner for B.  0., would be requested to meet the  parties interested and the scheme laid  before him along with the talc table  cost of installation, so that tho work  could be proceeded with at tho <a,n-l-  iest passible date. . As this scheme  will only benefit tho present holders  of records on the creek, nnd there being soveral hundred acres in (he district without any means of seeur'n  water, it behooves the rest of the community to get busy nnd unito wit  Rutland to form an Irrigation (,,rror-  ation with a view to obtaining water  from Mission Creek, this is a mutter  of vital importance to the whole valley and should bo taken up ut once, so  that the necessary stops could bo tn'c  en to secure n sufficient sunp|v of water under anv circumstances. This is  a matter which could be lone in a  short time if those interested would  take it up in a proper spirit, and  should not take lono- to havo 1 lie w at-  er placed where required. This "ould  cost a considerable amount of money  which would have to be found by  bonds or some such means, and the  sooner tho people get together sn.l gel  down to business the sooner will they  pet the neoesBnry supply of wat-'r. Its  no uso drat/gin? on from vour (n'yiar.  hoping that this company or hat will  hnve more water this year than last.

He hud been offered 7 u,;uU a pound  but could not accept it because the  local growers would not release him  from his contract.  Mr. Reekie explained that he had  not been asked for release Uvra the  contruct. In anv case he ooutd not  cive any such release. He was sure,  however, ��� that if Mr. Cosens could  have obtained confirmation of this  offer the board under lhe circumstances would have rrrnnted the relousn. lie  did not think, however, tnat aw firm  could hnve paid'such a nrice i.ud made  a profit. Ho considered that the Bales  by the Central would stand uimpaii-  sou with the sales of any other ctn  cern in the valley.  Mr, \V. Metcalfe pointed out that  for 54 tons of tomatoes he had mjI5k-  n loss of 811.22 and ns ed whv lift hud  been allowed to briny in toir.ames  when the market was in Buch a condition.  Mr. KobertBon described lhe condition of the growing tomato' con in  the early part of the ���jeawa. Tomatoes during the past year ha "I rii'oned  very fust resulting in early offerings  of lai'trc quantities. On the Mil of  August they were selling tomatoes at  75 and 85 cents per 4-baBket tt-ftles in  car load lots. When he wfts in Edmonton and Saskatoon after lliu main  crop had Btarted to move, tomatoes  wore being retailed at -15 cents iu 4-  bnsket crates. He hnd sent a telegram from Moose Jaw advising ll-nt  uo moro tomatoes bo shipped. Doubt  however was raised as to whether this  information had reached the growers,  The meeting then adjourned tor  lunch.  The afternoon' session was nin'nlv  taken up bv the answering of questions regarding the local and cp'itral  management.  Amongst other questions Wr. ttob-  ertflOn WqS nsked whv orowers of soft  fruits, -dunning through tho Central  reoeived lower prices than those shin-  Ding through competitors, to which  that gentleman replied by -.skin-  -'What wero tho prices?"  Another question was "Why W5B tho  reduced Price accepted on \u.-t---ilian  shipments in view of Sir. Geo. li. Foster's message saying that ocean rules  were the same as in previous ><-,,rs?"  Mr. Robertson, The original contract called for $1.40 per bov f.o.b.  shipping Point. After war broke out  they had received a communication  from Duffy & Co., to the .'IfiTot that  ocean rates nnd war insurance nude  it impossible .for him to adhere to the  contract terms and offering fl.O'J per  box for the smaller sizes to which thov  replied that if war conditions i re-  Vailed they would moot his < UwB uud  that if war conditions did not pro-  vail thev would expect him tn keep  his contract. 'Ihev found that freight  rates were not raised but that war  insurance of 3 por cent., which ma do a  difference of 10 cents per box \;i9 in  effect. In the meantime, however, the  market had gone all to pieert*. We-  natehee and Yakima were offering extra fancy Jonathans for export at 60  cents f.o.b., Wonatchee and ^ akima.  When ho was down in Vancouver w th  the first shipment to Australia he was  shown a tologram offering ixtra ftmev  Jonathans for Australia at 15 cents  per box f.o.b. Yakima. Thov acce-*-*  n price of 81.00 ft box f.o.b. Okan--  gan, and as it hapnened this was the  best price realized during the tail season. In addition to the insurance the  banks were very shy about r< goiiat-  ing letters ol credit, ".he proulo u  Unit luted them wus this: Miomd they  hold to lhe terms ot tho -'onuuei ,.ud  take a chauue ou not uispu^mg of thu  Iruit or accept lhe reduced price.  During tho course oi the it Ui. noon a  resolution was proposed.*, inul wt*  reconunend a cheaper package :or our  Becond grade appies, nnd that we try  the experiment of shipping our apples  in bulk to prairie points.''  Mr. ltockio stated that this had been  done in Uniurio. Apples in bulk had  been shipped right through to Kd-  monton with good results, and he  thought it possible to dispose of -<iite  a quantity of apples in ��uiB manner.  Tho iruit had realized about twice the  price when compared with second grade  apples disposed of through other mediums.  Mr. J. W. WooUey stated that two  cars of bulk apples had ue.-n shipped  from the Okanagan during 'he past  season and had netted the glower in  Vernon li cents per pound.  Another resolution read: "That we  consider further information as to the  state of the mArket should be available for the use of the growers."  Tho question was nuked "If we are  bulling through the brokers, way is it  necessary to have a -nun.iger with  two assistants to effect tho sales'"  Mr. liobertson referred that question  to the Board. They knew that they  were going to deal through the brokers and the employment of the two  assistants was endorsed hyf them,  There were some other things to do  besides the aotual moving of tha fruit.  Answering a question as to the salaries of these assistants Mr. liobertson  stated that Mr. Thompson, as sales  manager reoeived 8250.00 ner month  and Mr. W. Burton. 1160.00 and were  engaged until March 1st. Mr, Hurton  had left the employ of the Central on  December 1 th and the staff had also  been reduced since the shipping nou-ton  two oxtra bookkeepers and two stenographers having been let out, and  further reductions were to be made.  Replying to a question as to why  they had not attempted to trot into  closer touch with the rota ler, Mr.  Robertson stated that in order to  reach the retailer it was neoessivy to  onen wholesale houses at nrairie points  and to carrv other lines besides the  products of the Okanagan. Cih-rwiso  they would be under very heavy ex-  nonae during the non-shipping season.  "fo o^en warehouses would require  capital. At present all the unions had  borrowed heavily from the envem-  ment to carry on their present business, and he did not see whare- the  additional canital necessary to open  w.tol��wde   weretemsee   wns   to  from. Another difficulty was to get  tho men.  Mr. liobertson stated that chie ye��r  they had had for- the first lime some  sav en what the retailer should charge  for distribution, and when tbe * could  (ret to that "lint he considered they  had made a great step towards emanating the excessive charges (he wholesalers and retailers made.  Speaking On the ouestion nf the policy to be nursued in 1915 Mr. Robertson stated that all efforts to solve  their problems at the consu-ners* end  oi tho market were futile while there  was internal competition in *h-'- valley. Some arrangement must be made  to control prices either by amalgamation of all the shipping firms in the  vallev or by some form of commission  to control prices. In furtheranre of  this nolicv a deal was being arranged  wherebv the Armstrong Growers' Association were to purchase thu business of Davkin & Ja-:kson. Mr. Jack-  son, under thie arrangement was to  take oharge of the vegetable end of  the business of the central and thi  capital r��--ments, if the ontion was  taken un were to be made out '���[ profits. This was putting it up to Mr.  Jackson to make the arrangement t  If they were to make any nfogrcea  at all the growers must -ret together  to control the output of the valley.  Frankly, if thev did not in his ���*���������'nothings would be worse in the years to  come.  Towards five o'clock the mooting hn<T  trraduallv thinned down, and a crner-  ul movement toward the door hroi fht  the conference to an end.
