MARCH 13, 1919.���4 PAGES  Kelowna Growers' Fxchange Has  Had Successful Year's Operation  Absence of "Kickers" is Feature of Annual Shareholders'  Meeting - Manager Slater is Complimented on Satisfactory  Result of Year's Work  To the fact that the Kelowna  Growera' Exchange baa juat closed  a very successful year, and perhaps  also in some degree to the tact that  the organisation haa now paaaed  out of the experimental stage and  begun to pursue a settled buaineaa  policy, ia to be attributed the entire absence from the annual shareholders' mealing yesterday of the  wrangling and discord which haa  ��� characterized the meetings of the  past few years. The affairs of the  Exchange were never in a more  prosperous and promising condition, and evidently both directora  and shareholders were well satisfied.  Ihe meeting waa held in the  theatre, the retiring preaident, Mr,  L Dilworth, occupying the chair.  The directora' report, copies of  which had been distributed, gave  an outline of the year'a work, and  drew attention to some of the more  interesting f acta connected with the  season's shipments There was a  noticeable decrease in shipments  of spplea, crabs and plums due to  the isle froals in May laat, which  loss of tonnage had materially  affected revenue from' handling  charges. Notwithstanding this, how  ever, the results had been moat  satisfactory. There had been increases in pears, prunes, peaches  and cherries, but the vegetable  tonnage showed less owing to  them not handling canning tomatoes (and. the decrease in onion  shipments.  In spite of incrasse in cost of  boxes, psper, nsils, Ace, and loss  of tonnage, economical operation  had made possible a rebate of 3c  per boa on apples, peats snd crabs,  and 2c on all other fruit and miscellaneous vegetables, as well as  33c per ton on all vegetables instead of the incresse in handling  charges which had bean anticipated.  The directors' fully appreciated  the energy -and efficient work of  the new manager, Mr, Slater, and  alao of Mr. Linton who had charge  of the warehouse, and, indeed, the  entire staff for their willing assistance at all times.  The satisfactory prioes obtsined  this yesr, the directors stated, not  only bv their own growers but by  outsiders too, were largely the result of their own co-operstive  orgsnization, and ahould be an  encouragement to stand (closer to-  ftether and to continue to give it  oyal'and individual support.   .  The feed department showed sn  incresse in turnover of 27 per cent,  with a decrease in cost of operation. _ The most complete stock of  any similar concern in the interior  was carried, aad it had proved a  great convenience to ahareholdera  and the community at large. The  directors thanked Mr. Baldock for  his efficient and loyal services in  the conduct of that department.  Reference .was made to the purchase of the old cannery property  by the Exchsnge, the directora  hoping shortly to submit �� plsn  for the utilization of the site to the  best advantage.  Regrets were expressed st the  loss of the services of the secretary  Mr. H. A. Renwick, who hsd givsn  most satisfactory aervice. He was  to be succeeded by Mr. J. L. Ms-  cresdy who had left tha service of  the Exchange to go oversees in  February, 1916.'  The bslance sheet showed a net  profit on the year's operations of  $7,641.3J as against $2,791.69 last  year.  The report and balance sheet  were adopted with very little |dis-  cussion, practically- the only comment made being regarding the  increasing amount of the unpaid  calls on capital stock. The old  grievance of those who had subscribed the first payment'not expecting to be asked for any further  payment in the shares, especially  in the case of business men in the  city who were non-shippers, wss  aired, but no practicable way was  suggested to get over the difficulty  that all shareholders were legally  liable for the balance due on their  shares. It waa pointed out that a  dividend of 4 por cant, was to be  psid .this year which helped to  smooth over the mailer.  Another ' interesting point waa  raised bv the chairman who maintained that although the Act under  which they were incorporated prohibited non-shipping ahareholdera  from voting at the meetings, those  who were non-shippers because  they were non-producera and consequently had nothing to ship were  not thus debarred and consequently could vote in the ordinary way.  The election of directora was  then taken up. Last year's board  consisted of Msaars. L Dilworth,  E. M. Carruthers, C. F. Rush. Russell Fordham, G. A. Barrat, J. C.  Anderson and W. R. Reed. The  two automatically retiring were  Measrs. Dilworth and Rush, the  latter having signified hia willingness to stand again, and Mr. Grote  Stirling had been nominsted in addition. There being no further no-  initiations Messrs. Rush and Stirling were declared elected.  Many regrets were expressed  at the resignation of Mr. Dilworth,  who felt himself unable to devote  the neceaaary time to the work in  the coming year,  C H. Jackaon was re-appointed  auditor al a aalary of $ 150.  This practically -completed the  business of the meeting, bul as representatives were present from  the Okanagan United Growers in  the persona of Capt, Mutrie, preaident, W. J. McDowell, manager,  and C. L. Lowe, aales manager, an  adjournment waa made until I p.m.  in order to afford them an opportunity of addressing the growers.  There was a somewhat larger attendance upon reassembling, and  an interesting address wss given  by Capt, Mutrie, who besides being  president of the central' selling organization is an experienced and  Successful fruit and vegetable grower of lhe Vernon district, He very  strongly advocated aupporting the  co-operative methoda of selling,  pointing out that lhe market p. ice  wss dependent ss much upon the  support ofthe growers at this end  ss upon a strong selling organisation on the prairies.  The salsa organization was now  sufficiently well organised to set  lhe price instead of waiting for the  jobber to- do it, but this wss only  possible so long aa they had a big  volume of fruit to handle.  Speaking of the Vemon local he  said the growera there were apparently much more united than in  Kelowna, though Kelowna had  made a good showing this. yesr.  He described the hew storage  building which had been erected  at Vernon by means of a subsidiary company in which the Vernon local held shaiea. In four or  five yeara it was expected the cost  of the building would be clesred  off.  Capt. Mutrie alao went into lhe  question of onion growing in which  he hsd scored a distinct success.  Other speakers were Mr. J, A.  Grant, Prairie Markets Commissioner and Mr. G. L. Clarke, chief  Dominion Fruit Inapector, Mngr.  McDowell of the O.U.G. and sales  manager Lowe "should have addressed the meeting but had tto  hurry away to catch the boat for  Summerland.  The Markets Commissioner told  of the conditions which hsd prevailed en lhe praiiie markets 'during the psst year, and the various  conditions which regulated the distribution of Okanagan fruit. He  urged for better methoda of packing and ahipping and advocated  closer organization to take advantage of the markets in a better  manner. The outlook for the coming aeaaon was brighter than ever  before.- With the removal ot embargoes against export, markets  would be opened up again and he  believed that good prices would  rule.  Fruit Inspector Clarke in speaking of the work of hia department  expressed his plessure in the helpful and co-operative spirit in which  he wss met by the shippers of the  valley and their endeavor to comply with the regulationa. He strongly urged the importance of main-  L  7  L  11.50 Per Annum  Rutland News  tVnMI OV OWB sMRMDOataMtl-  A meeting of the U F.B.B.

On Tuesday this week the Rut  land of the United Farmers held  an "At Home" and dance in the  school, which proved to be a very  successful affair. The purpose was  to assist in raising funda to maintain  a paid secretary for the provincial  organization, and as a result a sum  ol $100 will be forwarded to the  head office. Mr. S. T. Elliott occupied the chair, and a very enjoyable' programme was rendered.  This included songs be Mrs. Trenwith, Miss Hilda Ellis, Messrs. G.  Ferrier, J. W. B. Browne, and M.  Williams. Mrs. DeMara gave a  recital, and Mr. Bond gave some  clever impersonationa and character sketches. Misa Bruce contributed  a violin solo, and Mr. Wilkie aome  humoroua songs. During the evening Mr. L. V. Rogers gave a talk  oh Cooperation, Supper waa served after lhe concert, snd dancing  waa continued until a late hour.  There was a very large turnout  including many visitors from town.  An unusual feature was the lighting  qf the school b) Mr. Trenwith. who  hsd temporarily installed a "Delco-  Light" piant. It was a great im-  firovement over the old oil Ismps.  I is to be left in piece for the Box  Social tomorrow.  Archie Wilcock and familv left  on Monday for the prairie.  Mr. Coxworth returned last Saturday from Victoria.  Mr. Connal, who has charge of  the Benvoulin snd Rutland congregations, wss ordained on Wednesday as Presbyterian minister.  Mention should have been made  last week, in the account of tha  "At Home" given at the school on  March 4th, that the Girls Club had  a ssle of home-made candy, which  realised the aum of $12. This  brings the totsl receipts lo $92.50.  Miss Jean MacDonald returned  home on Sunday' front Kelowna  Hospital.  Miss Edie Gay and Mrs. Schofield left on a visit to the coast on  Wednesday.  Miss Hszel Wharry, who has  been visiting her sister, Mrs. Geo.  Cross, left for Vermillion, Alberts,  Saturday.  Benvoulin Notes  Mrs. J.

The people in the Benvoulin  community assembled at the home  of Mr. E. A. Day on Friday evening to discuss various important  questions relative lo our community. Refreshments were served  after which a short entertainment  was given.  Laat Wednesdsy evening a few  of the Benvoulinilea took advantage  of the good sleighing to have a  sleigh ride and went to South Okanagan to the home of Mr. and  Mrs. Harvey, where they partook  of refreshments. To judge by the  noise and laughter all had a good  time and arrived home in the wee  hours of the morning.  Influenza haa broken out again  at Penticton, and quarantine regulationa have again become necessary.  taining a high standard in all fruit  shipments.  He mentioned the interesting  fact that the shipments from B.C.  to the Panama Exhibition had  stood up belter than those from  any other part of Canada or the  Statea.  Mr. L. E. Taylor urged the growera to support the B.C. Fruitr oweia'  Association which wss doing so  much for the fruit inductry in the  province. N {  Women's Institute  Monthly Meeting  The following account of the  monthly meeting laat Saturday  week, of the Women's Institute  waa unfortunately crowded out of  last week's issue. The meeting  was a special one, and included  besides the regular business of the  session, a tea for lhe Great vVar  Veterana and an exhibition ot war  trophies. The receipts from the  tea were $13.  Folio riving the reading and adoption of the minutes, a letter from  Mrs. MacLachlan, Secretary of the  Adviaory Board of Women'a Institutes, waa read, staling that Miss  Olive E. Hayes is now in charge  of lhe Household Science branch  of the Department of Agriculture  and her services aa lecturer, demonstrator and organizer are available  for the Institutes. Miss Hayes will  hold a courae of four demonstrations at each lnatitute, running four  consecutive daya. The subjects  will be " Milk," "Vegetables," "Food  for the Growing Child" and' "Invalid Cookery."  A second letter from Mra. MacLachlan conveyed the information  that Rev. Hugh Dobaon, Field  Secretary for Canada of the Methodist branch of Social Service and  Evangelism, had arranged to come  to B.C. to hold Child Welfare  Institutes with exhibits during the  spring months. The purpose of  these meeting is lo discuss from  a comprehensive and scientific  basis the beat known methoda of  conaerving the human resources of  the nation. The Women'a Institutes  are being asked to cooperate in  this work and on motion the secretary was instructed lo write Mr.  Dobson asking for information and  instructions and assuring him thst  the Kelowna Institute would help  ib the matter.  A suggestion having come from  the Ladiea' Hospital Aid that the  Institute join them in a "pantry sale"  to be given for the benefit of the  respective organizationa, a motion  was passed that this be done, the  date chosen being Saturday, March  15th, and it waa hoped lhat the  Great War Veterans' noms might  be secured in which to hold it.  Afternoon tea will alao be served.  At the conclusion of the business  tea was served" snd i a pleasant  aocial half-hour spent, after which  Mrs. A. A. Ballard kindly recited  "The Hell Galea of Soissons." The  audience showed its appreciation  by a hearty encore to which Mra.  Ballard graciously responded.  A goodlv collection of war  curios kindly loaned by Captain  Douglas Cameron and L-Corp.  Roy Haug were on view, and Lieut.  H. J. Hewetson assisted by Pte.  Geo. Reith demonstrated the uses  of gas masks, etc. When it becomes  known that gas is coming, lhe alarm  ia given by pounding on anything  -that will make a noise and by the  men shouting "gaa." The superiority of the mask used by the allies  over that of the Germana was very  manifest. Lieut. Hewetson said  the Allies could beat the Hun at  his own game every time. When  it became neceasary for the Allies  to retaliate wilh gas, they did it sq  effectively that the Hun masks did  not afford adequate protection. A  Hun revolver to be uaed only al a  ahort range, called forth the remark  from the speaker that he did not  know why they carried it, as when  they were close enough to u��e it,  their hands were up and they were  calling "Kamerad". -Asked if the  enemy night not surrender if they  wished, Lieut. Hewetson said "they  may and they wish".  The heavy steel helmets were  said to be not too bad when one  got used to them. A pair of Kitchener boota heavily studded with  nails were the only kind suitable  for marching over the cobble-stone  roada in France.  A high tribute waa paid to the  women of Canada for the way in which  they had kept the soldiers supplied with  socks and other comforts.  A trench map was uaed in describing an  attack upon the enemy, and the use made  of the barrage. One of the curios waa a  piece of of stained glass window from the  cathedral St Ypres, now a heap of ruins.  The next meeting of the Institute will be  held on April Sth in the Domestic Soience  Kitchen, when Miaa Macfarlane will give  a demonstration. The membership ia  staadily growing and now nnmbera 87.  Any lady desirous of becoming a member  may do so upon payment of the annual  fee of 50c.  Send Subscriptions  For Memorial Fund  to the City Clerk  Judging from enquiries which  have reached us it does not seem  to be generally understood as yet  that all subscriptions for lhe Memorial fund are to be forwarded or  handed to the city clerk. Mr. G. H.  Dunn, hon. treasurer of the Fund,  cheques being made payable to  "Kelowna District Memorial Fund".  It is not the intention. Aid. Mantle  alates, to make any canvas for subscriptions, but as soon aa the  amount subscribed reachea $2000  a public meeting is to be called to  decide upon the form which the  memorial ia to take.  Sergt. Paul Carries  Military Medal  Returned men have been dropping in nearly every day thia week.  On Friday last Ptes. J. F. Johnson,  Marshall and Teather were those  to receive a welcome. On Monday  Leon Gillard, an old timer of the  diatrict and one of the 172nd men  came in C. W. Anderson alao returned from Esquimault where he  has been on garrison duty. On  Tueadav the arrivala were 'Jack  Frost and C. Dodd.  Oo Wednesday Sergt. Fred Paul  came in. Leaving for overaeaa in  ihe early pari of 1916 he has seen  considerable aervice and haa won  aome distinction, being awarded  the military medal at Freanois in  1917. He haa been in aome of the  heaviest fighting and haa been both  gaased and wounded.  The Kelowna Volunteer Fire  Brigade wish lo thank the ladiea  and merche nts of Kelowna who ao  kindly aupplied the refreshments  for their dance on Monday, March  3rd, Theae thanks are a little delayed, for which apologies are  tendered, but are none the leaa  aincere, and it ia hoped the delay  will be over-looked by the brigade's  many frienda.  The service al the United church  on JSunday evening will be of a  musical nature in which the following numbera will be included:  chorus "I waited for the Lord"  (duet Mesdames Thompson and  Harvey), Mendelssohn ; anthem  "My faith looka up to Thee" (solo  Miss Ellis, violin obligalo Drury  Pryce); aolo " Fear not ye, O Israel," Mra. i.. Hayman. Mr. Drury  Pryce who is shortly leavi.g the  city, snd who hss so often given  willing help to the choir, will, by  special request, render two violin  aolos.  Returned Soldiers  Will Undergo Training  Witt Local Farmers  Capt. Burrows, who ia engaged  under the government in the working out of the provisions ot lhe  Dominion Soldiers' Settlement Act  waa in town this week making arrangements for the placing of a  number of returned men with farm-  era of the district for a course of  agricultural training which will fit  them for their new life.  Capt. Burrowa attended, the annual meeting of the Kelowna  Growera' Exchange and waa afforded an opportunity to explain  the Act and what waa being done  to help the soldier to get " back to  the land." The new order-in-council paaaed aince the armistice waa  aigned provides for assistance being given to the soldier in the purchase of land up to $5,000' The  aoldier can choose his own land  and muat pay 10 per cent, of the  purchaae price, the balance being  loaned at 5 per cent, interest for  25 vears, upon a plan of repays  ment by easy instalments. $1,000  is also added for any necessary  permanent improvements, and a  further $2,000 can be borrowed  for aeven years for stock.  All proposals have to be submitted to the appointed committee for the province, who will alao  decide aa to the qualification of the  applicant. If he ahould lack experience aa a farmer, he ia required to go through a courae of training on a farm.  Two weeks ago offices were  opened in the Birka Building at  Vancouver, and already aome 300  applicationa had been received.  Some of these men were desirous  of engaging in farming and 'fruitgrowing in the Okanagan, and  aome in Kelcywna, and it was desired to plaice a number of them  with local farmers.  Capt. Burrowa aaid he would be  glad lo hear from any farmer who  could accommodate one of these  men. They were all fit and able  to work. The government would  guarantee board, and if at the end  of a month the man'a aervicea were  worth anything, it waa left with the  farmer to recompense him accordingly.  Later the apeaker announced  lhat he had aucceeded in placing  24 men in the diatrict. It waa  likely that someone would be  placed here lo look after .their interests. Any correspondence either  from soldiers or farmera would be  welcomed and ahould be addressed to the office, Birks Building,  Vancouver.

Letters should be ss brief s.  possible snd to lhe point.  To the Editor of  The Kelowna Record.  Dear Sir: Will you allow me a  space in your paper to express my  views on the subject of Oriental  ownership of land in Canada ? It  ia a most important question for ua  and now ia the most fitting time to  settlo it, once and for all, if possi  ble. "Discussions of this kind so  easily raise feelinga of racial preju  dice, that we have to be very care  ful hqw we handle them.  It ia not auch an important mat.  ter whether the population haa  white or dark akin, but il does  matter what kind of people ihey  are. Many a white akinned person  carries <i pretty black heart inside,  and vice-versa, ao it ia hard to  judge from the outside which  should make the best citizen of the  two. But Canada is a Britiah colony and I think we all wish it to  remain so. Every nation should  own its own country and keep control of all large or important in  dustries. Paat experience haa  surely shown ua the danger and  lolly of "allowing foreigners loo  much latitude in thia respect. If  the intereata 'of business make it  neceasary lo admit them to our  country, at least we should use the  utmost discretion with those we  peimit to become permanent residents in our midst. Every care  should be taken to select those  whom we know will blend and  ultimately unite in one harmonious  whole. We can then expect both  peace and prosperity.  The Japs are clever people and  there is much we can admire in.  them. The ease with which they  can adapt themselves to any business or mode of life is simply wonderful and they are as industrious  as ants.  Now, I wish Mr. Iwashita to  clearly understand that 1 am not  singling out his countrymen especially in what I may say about the  desirability of foreigners as settlers���I embrace them all. He is  entirely wrong in hia statement  that we are satisfied so long as  they remain in a degraded poaition aa hewers ol wood and drawers of water, for we do not appreciate riff-raff in Cyiada, but are  pleased to see people improve  themselves in every way, and they  have the same chance to earn good  wages or rent land on ahares or  individually as others of our own  race.

Sicamoua  for Summerland, for the return  basket-ball matches, which point  we reached about 6 o'clock. We  were met by Scoutmaster Zimmerman and several of the Summer-  land Troop, and proceeded with  the scoutmaster and, officers of the  troop to the hotel, where a splendid dinner waa given ua The  Rev. H. A. Solly and Dr. Andrews,  president and vice-president of the  Summerland association, were also  present.  The first game between our  smallest scouts, commonly known  as the third team, was commenced  about 8 o'clock. A splendid game  was the result with the superior  team work of our five sending them  home, the winners to the tune of 9  to 12. The next game which immediately followed waa between  our second teams and possibly belonged a little more to  American  property, that implies permanent  residence, with all the various privileges pertaining thereto. Doea  Mr. Iwaahita look forward to the  future when hia countrymen aettled  here shall intermarry with Canadians and so form one united  people ? I think not, so in the end  we shall be two nations distinctly  living side by aide and each will  work for their o*n individual interests, which are sure to clash  sooner or later.  Another point is thia: the Orientals who come ta our country are a  class of people who do not seem  lo have ever been used to any of  the refinement or luxuries of life,  and being used to hard work and  no frills, he can come here and is  able to work Sunday and weekday, early and late, and can live  anyhow for years. The average  white man can not do il, and ao  when it comes to work the Jap or  the Oriental gets firat chance. Now,  must we lower our standard of  civilization and do the aame work  Sunday and week-day, early and  late, women, children and men  alike���let go of the better things of  life, that money can .never buy,  simply to hold our own against  the foreigner in our vmidet ? or  shall we demand that they be made  to observe our -laws?���and try to  raise them to our standard of civilization. I think it would be wise  to consider this. Last year waa a  prosperous one for this valley and  thia year we are looking for better  things, and every yeai more produce is going out of this part of  the province, but if the wonderful  prosperity we have had ia going to  be the meana of crowding out the  nobler and better things of life,  then, believe me, it will be a cuise  and not a blessing. Are we to continually desecrate the Sabbath and  permit the foreigner to do so also?  Are we to aland before the world  as a people who preach one thing  and practice another ? ���taking our  children to church, presumably to  learn to reverence the Sabbath and  teaching them to obey God's commandments, while all around us  are people who deaecrate it in the  most open manner���and many  there are amongst us who are willing to take a share of the profits  thus made.  We boast of being a Christian  people, but I think we Sre only  playing al it and deceiving ourselves. The time haa come, I think,  when we ought to look this matter  squarelv in the face and decide  whether we will serve God or  mammon.  We have no right to continually  deaecrrte the Sabbath in order to  gather the last few applea and tomatoes, and its a poor, mean way  to show our thankfulness lo the  Almighty for auch goodness. Money made like that will bring no  real prosperity to any country or  people. Let ua be honest and true  to our boasted Christian principles  and not try to do evil that good  may come���it will not pay in the  end.  *     Mrs. J. 1. CAMPBELL.  Rugby football variety than basketball, but resulted in a very tight  game with Summerland the winner  by a score of 10 to 6.  The final game between our  firat teama waa another nerve  wrecker and ended with exactly  the aame acorea aa at Kelowna,  namely 9 to 10 in favor of Summer-  land. Within leaa than a minute  lo play Kelowna waa one point  but Summerland scored on goal  which placed them one point ahead.  We then commenced rushing the  ball to the other end and a foul  waa called juat about two seconds  before the end of the game. The  whistle waa no heard by all the  players and continuing lhe rush  we scored, but unfortunately It  could not'count. The subsequent  free shot waa not converted into a  score. It waa a hard game to lose  but a great one for the spectators,  and again demonstrated that our  team   must  learn  to score more  frequently when they get  the ball.

Not a little disappointing waa  the result of the acouta' visit to  Summerland last week-end, when  the senior basketball learn met defeat, curiously enough by the ssme  score as they did two weeks ago  10 9.

The  juniors, however, aaved their good  reputation and came back the victors with a acore of 12-9.
