KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MARCH 7, 1918.-4 PAGES  Schsol Expenditures  Higher lis Year  The council met Monday evening with a full attendance of members. The principal business was  the receiving of the estimates of  the school board for the current  year. Thais provided for the expenditure of $14,646, or about  |2,000 in excess of last year. The  estimates in detail were as follows:  Tsachais' Salariee 15306  Less govt, grant  6760  *-s    $8746  Janitor. Sal;.       1790  Secretary'.

Water .nd Scavenging       450  Sundries        400  $14646  Mr. J. A. Bigger, chaiman ot the  Board, who attended in regard to  the matter, explained that the increase of expenditure was due to  the necessity of having an additional teacher for the winter term,  the probability of having to engage  another teacher at midaummer and  the necessity of making a general  increase in the salariesto take effect  alter the summer vacation.  Mr. Bigger asked whether the  council would be able to connect  the schools wilh the sewerage  ayatem thia year. He was informed  that it would be quite impossible  for the council to raise tha money  to undertake the work at present.  The estimates were passed without amendment.  Aid. Mantle reported in connection with the proposal to provide  rooms for the convenience of returned soldiers. He stated thai  the rooms could be secured in the  Hew��tson-Mant!e block at a monthly rental of $ 15. The newly-formed Veterans' Association had  agieed with the idea and promised  to give every assistance. It had  been suggested that arrangements  be made to hold a' dance immediately after Lent to provide funds  for furnishing and equipping the  rooms.  It was decided that the members  of the council form themselves  into a committee to work in conjunction with the Welcome Committee of the Board of Trade in  dealing with the matter.  Aid. Lloyd-Jones reported that  he had made an investigation re-  ?arding the sewerage connection  or the proposed new cannery  and pickle factory, and had found  that the existing four-inch pipe  would be large enongh to serve  tha three factories which would be  connected providing they made a  mutual agreement not to wash  down their floors at the same hour  of the day.  The clerk was instructed to notify Mr. Hayes that connection  could be made at the firm's own  expense and subject to necessary  regulations.  A letter .was read from the Fire  Brigade protesting against the dangerous practice of tieing horses  and rigs on the main street, especially nea,r Lawson's corner on  Bernard Ave. and Water Street  south. Tha letter pointed out that  as conditions were at present it  would frequently be impossible  for the fire 'apparatus to travel  from the hall to Bernard Avenue,  owing to the rigs lined up on both  sides of the street. These rigs  often reached so far across the  street as not to leave a sufficiently  wide passageway for traffic, It  was further contended that if the  necessity ever arose' during any  day or Saturday night foi a connection to be made to the hvdrant  at Lawson's corner, it would be  impossible for the Brigade to do  so, owing to the corner being  rCa.ll.sll em tsm 4.1  "      . O   ii  Instead of the numerous amendments co the Municipal Act which  had been proposed bv the municipal inspector, the municipal committee of the House will recommend to the executive that no  amendments to the Act be passed  this year, but that an entirely new  Act be drafted for next session of  the legislature.

At 10.30 Friday night he  succumbed tb the dread disease,  only one short weak after he had'  been taken ill on the train at  Moosejaw, and hurried to hospital  at Calgary. Following a brief rally  which gave rise to the vain hope  of his recovery, he suddenly became worse, tojnugh he remained  conscious to the end, and died  holding the hand of his brother,  Capt. G. W. Brewster. The Hon,  J. D. McLean, provincial secretary,  adviaed of the critical turn which  his chief had taken, arrived in Calgary about an hour and a half too  late to see him alive.  -Arrangements were at once  made to remove the remains to  Victoria, where an impressive  funeral was held Tuesday.  The untimely end of the government's chief minister has been  received with the deepest expressions of regret, not only by his colleagues in the cabinet and his own  party followers, but by political  opponents everywhere. He was  a man who commanded the highest respect, and not even those  who differed from him on matters  of governmental policy ever found  cause to doubt his personal integrity, and general sincerity and  uprightness of character.  The many sympathetic telegrams  and messages which have been  received at Vicloria during the  past few days bespeak the high  esteem in which he was held in  all parts of the Dominion. During  his brief career in the reaponsible  position of premier of the province,  if he has had little opportunity to  prove his capacity as a great statesmen, he has at least given an impression of honesty of purpose,  and a desire to promote good  government.  Born 48 yeara ago at Harvey, a  New Brunswick seaport, lhe son  of a ahip builder and owner, he  started life as a printer, but later  forsook that calling to become associated with the shipping and  fishing industry, which business  brought him to this province a  little over twenty years ago. He  was first elected to the legislature  from Alberni in 1907, and from  1910 to 1912 he had the distinction of being the only Liberal in  the House. He led the Liberal  party in the last election in 1916,  with a triumphant result, and became the firat Liberal premier for  thirteen years; He was a widower,  his wife having died some years  ago, and leaves a family of one  son, who is on war service overseas,, and three daughters, the  youngest of whom is but five years  old.

Growers' Exchange  Annual Meeting  Past experience has lead shareholders to expect in the annual  meeting of the Kelowna Growera'  Exchange a lengthv and atormy  session. These expectations were  not realized this year at any rate,  tor with the exception of one or  two slight bickerings over the  claim that in some cases independent buyers had paid higher prices  for fruit than the Exchange, the  affair passed off with unusual calm.  The president for the past year,  Mr. Leslie Dilworth, took the chair.  The meeting was rather late in  starling, and the attendance at the  outset was small, but as the morning went on. the numbers were  gradually augmented, until a fair  gathering had assembled.  Following the reading of the  lengthy minutes of last year's memorable meeting with its numerous  adjournments, the first business  taker, up was the directors' report  for the year, copies of which had  been previously circulated.  Some discussion arose out of  varioua itema in the report. Most  of thele centred around the question of feed dividends. The directors had suggested that in order  to conaerve the surplus for necessary extension of the buildings, the  dividends both in the capital stock  and on the feed purchases, be not  paid this year. Several speakers  argued that thia was unfair to feed  purchaaera who had bought with  the expectation of getting a rebate;  it also threw the burden of paying  for the extension upon them instead of upon the whole of the  shippers. Finally, it was decided  to pay a two per cent, dividend.  Other shareholders contended  for the payment of a dividend on  the stock in order to satisfy those  who had put money in without any  prospect of other benefits.  Mr. Atkins of Glenmore obviously touched upon the most contentious point when he wanted to  know why he should support the  Exchange when he had been able  to get 33c. a box more for hia apples  from an independent firm. Ihis  evidently awoke responsive feelings in the minds of some ethers.  Loyal supporters of the Exchange,  however, boldly stuck out for their  side of the case, and thc argument  threatened to become unduly  warm.  It was maintained by the directors that while in some cases higher  prices had been paid by those who  had wanted fruit very badly, the  Central average was higher than  the average of independent prices.  Mr. Rush said he could name men  who had got 60c. per box for some  fruit, whilst he himself had got  $1.10 from the Exchange for the  aame kind.  Discussion on the balance sheet  waa continued into the afternoon  session, following which Mr. Grant  Prairie Markets Commissioner,  gave an interesting talk on conditions on the prairie and prospects  for the future. He strongly urged  growers to co-operate in the sell ing  end, as a strong body was not at  such a disadvantage in the market  as a amall shipper. With regard  to the capacity of the market he  did not think there was any likelihood of the valley output ever  catching up with consumption  there.  He corroborated the statement  that the O. U. G. had set the price  last year at $1.40. Independent  shippers took advantage of the rising market, and those who had  bought early made a handsome  profit,  He allowed some of the unfortunate effects of competition from  different shippers in pushing prices down.  Mr. Berry, of Langley Prairie,  who was one of the chief movers  in the establishment of the Frazer  Vallev Milk Producers Association  one of the most successful cooperative movements in tin; country, spoke of the advantages of  concerted action by farmera in the  aale of their produce. .He drew a  parallel between the case of their  own milk producers' and   the fruit  rWianaS oa saw Ssjsms  , An order has been issued by  the chairman of the Canada Food  Board bringing the retail grocers'  of,the Dominion under license.  On and after May 1st it will be  illegal for any retail grocer to carry  on business without a licence.  Scores Government  for Its Shortcomings  Mr. J. W. Jones, member (pr  South Okanagan, had an opportun-  ty to addreta the legislature last  Thursday in the course of the debate on the speech from the Throne  and took advantage of it by scoring the government for ��� its shortcomings and failure to live up to  clear!}-made promises.  There was a distinct difference,  Mr. Jones pointed out. between  the high-flown language of the  Speech from the 1 hrone of last  year compared with the apparent  paucity of ideas in that of the present year, a sort of camouflage  which, he believed, was intended  to cover the lack of Government  initiative in dealing with the pressing problems confronting the province. He referred to the well-  known facts concerning the world  shortage of foodstuffs, and declared that so far the government had  shown a woeful lack of leadership  in dealing with the matter. Big  things had been promised for the  Land Settlement Board, but beyond  five of its members being given  soft jobs at $ 175 a month, and its  chairman a softer one at $200 a  month, and an evident desire on  he part of the members of the  board to inaugurate a species of  real estate business in securing options on land to be sold to incoming settlers, the net results had  been nil. There had been nothing  done to encourage increased production on those lands already  settled.  The acute labor situation wai a factor  the Government had done nothing to relieve. Mr. Jones paid a tribute to the  work of Mr*. Kemp, of Vancouver, and  Misa Marian, of Victoria, who handled the  work of getting women into the field* last  year with little assistance from the Government, nnd he declared that in view of  the Government's record last year the  jermers had every right to regard the present season with some misgiving.  Refe/ing to the Okanagan section, where,  despite unfavorable outlook last year, production had totalled in value over five millions, one half of which had been produced in his own riding, the speaker held  that that section had done its bit, but there  had been trouble over markets and the  district had looked in vain for tome action  by the Department of Agriculture, the  head of which would have been enlightened had he visited the district. An attempt  had been made to blame the growera for  the onion situation and to indicate that  this year's surplus had been due to the  farmer* holding for higher prices than they  were justly entitled to. The fact was that  in 1916 growers got as high as $200 per  ton, but, appreciating the way the market  had then been manipulated, aome of the  farmera thi* year had held back their  stock*. When the evaporator* were closed down an appeal had been made to the  Department of Agriculture to assist in improving marketing conditions, but all that  wa* done by the department was to enter  into a long distance discussion with the  Food Controller in an effort to get the  Federal authorities, burdened by the enormous problems of Canada's war effort*, to  shoulder the work.  The province, Mr. Jones declared, might  well have provided money to permit the  evaporators to operate and thus save  large supplies of valuable foodstuff*, quite  a* well a* to grant thousands for supplying seed grain to farmer*.  The lack of any real action by the government to solve the difficulties in the dry  belt by a comprehensive irrigation policy  was also a cause for complaint by the member for South Okanagan, who pointed to  the twenty million* invested in orchard*  in ths dry belt, eighty per cent, of which  waa in the Okanagan, as proof that the  question wai a province wide and not  merely a local one. Two-thirds of the  fruit grown was produced in the dry belt,  and when it was seen how much easier it  is to settle the dry belt than the coaat section*, the government should have given  mora attention than it has to the whole  question. It wa* to be hoped that the promised legislation would solve the difficulties, but it waa surprising that in connection with this larger plan the advice of the  grower* on the spot had not been asked.  No better diatrict for the settlement of  returned soldiers could ba found in British  Columbia than the Okanagan, but it wa*  apparent that while other sections of the  Empire huve already taken hold of the returned soldier problem in a corageou* and  liberal manner, Britiah Columbia ha* so  far done nothing worth while. The Miniater of Land* claimed it waa a queation for  the Federal authorities���an easy way to  side-step responsibility. Other provinces  which do not own their own natural resources are acting, but Britiah Columbia,  in poseuion of immense resources, haa  failed to do so.  Mr. Jones quoted the Premier's promises  of what would be done for the returned  soldiers and his prediction that the Civil  Service Act would eliminate patronage.  The net result had been nothing for the  former and the decapitation of scores of  faithful civil servants to make room for  party heeler*. It wa* only necessary, he  aaid, to refer to the action of tha Miniater  of Land* in respect of Mr. Duggan, presi-  tdent of the Great War Veterans' Aatocia-  ion, to appreciate the real spirit of the  government regarding the returned soldier.  Was it any wonder, he asked, that the recent by-election* resulted aa they did >  Those verdict* showed the government  had been weighed in the balance and found  wanting.  Meetings  Co-operative Marketing  As part of a genera! campaign  throughout the Valley on behalf of  the Okanagan United Growera and  the principle of cooperative marketing of fruit, a aeries of meetings  were held last weekend in this district at Rutland, East Kelowna,  Glenmore, and on Saturday in the  Board of Trade room, Kelowna.  The principal speakers were Mr.  C. L. Lawes, sales manager of the  O. U. G, and M*. A. H. Flack,  manager of the Growers' Sales  Agency which has recently been  established in the Northwest. The  meetings have been well attended  and have been productive of lively  discussion.  The Growers' Salea Agency, as  explained by Mr. Flack, represents  an important new move in the way  of direct and economical marketing  of Okanagan fruit on the prairies,  and makes the grower practically  independent of the two great brokerage combines which formerly  held the field.  The Agency was established in  the spring of 1917, and men were  MM to Winnipeg Calgary, .nd Regina  There was plenty of opposition aad difficulty, and little encouragement at firat.  Nevertheless, during the first year of operation they sold 1600 ear. ef fruit and vegetables, and saved the United Growers  $10,000 in selling cost, after paying .11 expenses of the three hou.es. He claimed  that by Ihe adoption of thi. new method  the O. U. G. had been the controlling  factor in the apple pricee on the prairie,  last year, independent shippers getting the  benefit r>s well as the Central.  Mr. Flack went into details aa to the  arrangement, which had been made by  the Agency wilh houses on the American  aide. The object at the outset had been  to secure in addition to the Okanagan  fruit, aa many other accounts m possible  in order that the brokerage fee. thu.  secured would help to pay the running  expenses of the three branches. A. these  account, included orange., lemon., and  other fruit, as well as apples, the Agenda,  were able to keep in touch with the market, all th. year round. The American  concerns fully understood that where possible Okanagan fruit should have the preference and Mcure tke lust sale.. -  Mr. Lowe urged for stronger cooperation  amongst the fruitgrower, of the Valley.  He Mid the independent buyer, were out  thi. year with ��� campaign of vilification  against the Union, and nothing would  please them better than to Me it put out  of business. If it were not for the cooperative agency the grower, would be in a  poor position today, and under the necessity of selling to the cash buyer for any  price he liked to name. He cited the example of the orange growera of California  who until they organized in their own in-  terestswere almost forced out of tke busi.  nees, the poor prices paid Cleaning nothing  but Iom to them. When they got together  to .ell their own product, the position  wu reversed. They could now set their  own prices, and were the richest and moot  favored people in the fruitgrowing business today.  He .poke of condition, but spring when  thing, looked bed for orchard owners,  many of whom in a panic Mid out their  crop for m low as 40c per boa. Later the  O. U. G. Mt a higher price on apple, than  had been thought possible.  It was admitted that in a few instance.  independent buyer, had paid higher pricee  but thia WM because, due to the action of  the O. U. G., they had to buy later on a  rising market to fill their orders.  Mr. Low. Mid that with increased tonnage from greater cooperation they would  be able to get the highest prices for the  farmer at a lower operating cost. '  Mention was made of a rumor that  vegetables brought in bythe Sales Agency  last year from the State, had knocked  down the price for the Okanagan grower..  Mr. Flack declared thi. to be a deliberate  lie, m the only vegetables brought in but  year were two car. of cabbage, irom  Walla Wall..  Mr. J. E. Reekie .poke on behalf of the  B. C. Fruitgrower.' Association, urging all  growera to join an association which for  twenty.five year, had been doing a great  deal of good work in their interest. The  Association h.d decided to still further  pnsh it. advertising campaign on behalf of  B. C. fruit, and would shortly .sk grower.  for ��� voluntary contribution of half a cent  per box on apples and pear., a quarter  cent on .ton. fruit, and ISc per ton on  vegetables. These we only email amount,  to tbe individual grower, and he hoped  the appeal would meet with a ready  rasp ease.  After an illness extending over  several years, Mrs. E. Gray passed  awav last Friday night at Okanagan  Mission, the funeral taking place  Monday at the Mission Cemetry.  Mrs. Grav came out from England  about twelve years ago, remaining  for a time on the prairie. About  six years ago Mr. and Mrs. Gray  took up their residence here.

Richard Parkinson and  Scout L. Gaddes passed the tests  for the Carpenter's badge before  Mr. Mitchell on February 26th,  and P.-L. J. Calder passed his test  for the Naturalist's Badge before  Mrs. D. F. Kerr on February 27.  The scout master attended a reorganization meeting of the leaders and seconds of Summerland  Troop laat weekend. A new scout  master, Mr. O. F. Zimmerman, is  taking charge of the troop there  and they are going to follow tbe  same plan we used last year���that  is, set a' minimum date by which  all present scouts in the troop  have to re-pass the Tenderfoot  and Second-Class tests. T.-L. A.  Harris is goiug to act as assistant  master, and with such a keen lot  of scout officers Summerland is  bound to have a good year ahead.  We wish them the best of luck.  There is also a possibility of the  troops being reorganized in Vernon and Penticton, so scouting in  the Okanagan is not dying out by  any means.  We very much regret that we  are likely to lose Cub Master Gordon at the end of June. The Cubs  were formed and have made great  strides under his care, and his loss  will be very keenly felt if he leaves  Kelowna.  Conclusion of Scout - Diary:���  Tuesday���(at the railroad).

The council, however, seemed  to take the view that any little disadvantage arising from the presence of rigs waa more than offset  by the air of businesslike activity  which they gave to the street.  What was wanted, they contended  was more rigs and not fewer. Anyway they considered that regulations which might be all right in  larger cities would be apt to work  hardship in a city of this size. No  action waa taken.  Aid. Mantle aubmitted a report  which he had obtained fiom Mr.  F. W. Groves upon the condition  of the two bridges over Mill creek  at Richter street and Abbott street.  Both bridges, the engineer reported were in a dangerous condition  and in need of immediate repair.  The timbers were badly rotted at  the ends, and the support* had  sunk considerably. A scheme of  repairs was suggested in each case  to cost in the case of Richter street  $25 to $30, and in the case of  Abbott street, which was in a far  worse, condition, $ 100. It was. decided that .these repairs ahould be  carried out at once.  The yearly contract with A. R.
