 Kctofcma  VOL IX.   NO. 15.  KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA. THURSDAY. MARCH I. 1917.-4 PAGES  $1.50 Pes* Annum  Trade  Monthly Meeting  Burden ol Debt Changed to  Balance in Bank  That tha Board of Trade had  not only lifted the burden of indebtedness which had oppressed  it so long, but had now a comfortable balance in the bank was the  welcome news'conveyed to the  members at the meeting Tuesday  evening. There was a good attendance and a more pronounced air  of" we mean business " about the  meeting than has been noticeable  for some time. Due, no doubt, to  the amalgamation with the Merchants' Association, a good proportion of those present were merchants in the city. Mr. H. F. Rees  presided. .  After the usual minutes a report  , from the executive was read giving a brief report of the three meetings of that body since last meeting and detailing the various  matters which had been considered by them.  The following were announced  as the sub-committees for the year:  Finance, Messrs. Groves, Forster  and Benson; Publicity, Messrs.  Benson, Meikle and Leathley;  Roads and Transportation: Mes-  ara. Groves, Hereron, Haug and  Brent; Labor, Mesara. Carruthers,  Hereron and Brent; Resolutions,  Messrs. Weddell, Forster and Carruthers ; Merchants, Messrs. Haug,  McKenzie and Meikle ; Reception,  Messrs. Benson, Meikle and Leeth-  ley.  The report of the F iaanft committee stated that the liabilities oi  $252.86, shown in the annual  atatement and outatanding at the  beginning of the mouth had all  been paid, and a credit balance ol  $223, with several amounts still  owing to the Board (cheers).  Thia pleasing result had been  achieved by a vigorous collection  of dues both for the current year,  and atrears, and the influx of new  members, of whom fourteen had  joined.  The Labor committee reported  negotiations pending with the  Farmers' Institute relative to the  establishment of some form ol  labor bureau to mitigate the labor  ahoitage for the coming season.  The Roada at 'J Transportation  committee submitted the following  recommendations to be submitted  to the government��� road from  Barlee's to Renfrew's corner to be  macadamized full width, as there  is a great deal of heavy traffic on  the road and it breaks up badly in  wet weather; 2 Road from Renfrew's corner to Wilcox's to b e  graded, rocks, picked out, snd  gravelled or macadamized; 3  Road from Bernard Avenue to  Barlee's to be dreaaed and oiled.  It was pointed Out that thia was a  well constructed piece of road,  but if it were not kept in repair  the money spent on it would be  lost. 4 Concrete abutments to the  bridge over Sawmill Creek at  Belle Vue hotel to be underpinned  where they were being undermined by the water; 5 New road  from Wilcox's corner north to line  between Bulman's and Conroy' As  gazetted, then east to present main  road to Kelowna.' The construction of this road would remove  the necessity of hauling freight  over two very steep hills in the  present Vernon road, and would  also give access to a large amount  of farming land which at the present time haa no outlet; 6 Th  main road bridge over Mill Creek  ���t the Five Bridges to be replanked  It was also atated that Mr. Groves  had met the Penticton Board executive and they had expressed  their willingness to co-operate in  any movement to get a road down  the east side of the lake���a scheme  with which they hsd always been  in favor.  In connection with the proposed  new rosd from Wilcox's corner,  Mr. F. R. E. DeHart urged thst this  be msde straight through to the  Postill ranch at once, instead of  waiting, thus cutting down the distance to Vernon bv at least two  miles.  Mr. DeHart also recommended  Stressing for a road  from McCul-  ough to Carmi, thus giving sn out-  Prohibits Importation of  fruits and Nuts  As part ol the new plan to save  900,000 tons cargo space a year  by restricting non-essential food  imports, the British government  haa announced that the importation of fruits, with the exception  of oranges and bananas, is lo be  prohibited entirely. Oi orarges  and bananas, the amount brought  it is to icstricted 25 per cent.  The same restriction will apply*  to nuts. Canned salmon <vi 1 be  reduced to 50 per cent. The importation ot foreign'tea, coffee and  cocoa is prohibited, and the  amount of India tea which may be  brought in is reduced.

It was decided to  send a resolution on this matter to  the minister oi public works, the  member for the district, Mr. J. W.  Jones, and also to the various  boards oi trade and others interested.  The terms oi amalgamation wilh  the Merchants' Association on being read to the meeting were approved unanimously.  A resolution proposed bv lhe  Resolutions committee iu accordance with instructions from the last  meeting, asking for a new court  house and public building ���'���nt  read and proved to be an nun s ng  but withal convincing document.  It pointed out the utter inadequacy  of the present " Hilapidaied an I  ancient wooden building" which  was a diagraee to any Centre oi  population and business the size  of Kelowna," and aaked the provincial government to immedialcl  erect a building to accominod.l I  the various offices which shr. .i.i  be located in Kelowna as head oi  the conatitueney of South Oltarn-  gan. Attached were photographs  of the present noble edifice fi ��� m  various angles,including one whir b  embraced the Casorso block, making the " court house " look like a  dry goods box alongside an elevator.  Mention was made  oi the visit  Lof the representative   oi   the Military Hospitals Commission   and it  was decided to gather and furnish  all possible information.  Mr. G. S. McKenzie moved that  the Grand Trunk Railway be informed that Kelowna had ineeed  a station   agent   aa   judging  from I  their time tables they did not seem jbuadinsT purposes,  to be aware of it. He thought some  information should be given concerning the nun.ber of men employed by the C.P.R. passenger  and freight services, as he had had  freight prepaid from the east under the impression that this was  merely a flag atation (laughter).  Mr. Hereron drew attention to  the great loss the valley had sustained in the sudden death of Mr.  Jackson manager of the United  Growers, and it was decided that  the secretary write conveying the  Board's sympathy with the family  in their berervement.  Owing to the lateness of the  hour a paper on the financial conditions in the valley which should  have been given by Mr, W. G.  Benson, was deferred nntil next  meeting.  The chairman made a suggestion  to the members that at the next  meeting each one bring five practical auggestions for the benefit oi  the city. The suggestions were to  be feasible and not involve the  apendlng ot a great deal of money  which was impossible atthe present time. He alao proposed to  further stimulate intereat by offering a prize t�� the high school  pupils for similar suggestions.  The following new members  were elected to the Board; Messrs.  J. Ball. J. R. Campbell, J. W. Currie.  J. F. Fumerton, S. Old, G Monford,  W. Price, J. Williams, J. Trenwith,  and D D. Campbell.  Applications for life memberships from J. W. Jones M. P. P..  and N. D. McTavish were also  accepted.  an hour later that tbe gathering bad  grown uuilioiently to warrant the opening ol proceedings. When finally /the  meeting did get thoroughly under way  tha seats had gradually filial until  quite a rospsctable crowd was present.  Mr. G. I. Alias, president oi Uta Exchange during the past year, took  charge oi tbs proceedings, assisted by  Mr. W. D. Brent, looal manager.  Tbs first business was the reading oi  the report oi directors and balance!  sheet for ths year.  Tbs directors wore pleased, lbs report stated, to note that theCxcbange  had had tbs support oi a oonsidsrably  increased number oi shippers, and that  there bad been an inorsase intonnage  except as to soft fruits. Tbs decrease  in ohorrios waa 73 per oeat, apricots,  84 per oent., peaches, 96 per oent., and  plums, 08 per sent. These decrease  were due to a light orop aa a result of  the sevore winter. Tbs same oaune  was responsible ior very light bearing  of apples and pears in aome districts,  but on the whole ths tonnage increase  on these commodities waa 20 per cent  Bulk vegetables had increased 33 per  cent.  Daring the height oi ths shipping  season they bad had the moat serious  ear shortage in the experience oi the  distriot. It waa impossible to secure  proper oars (or the movement oi the  crops, trxoepUng* in a vary limited  number. Aa long aa the weather per  mitted box oars ware used in place of  refrigerator care in order to gel goods  to the market, but storage, extra  handling, and increased general ex  penses were made neoeMa'y to sn uu  usual extent. Tha financial ys�� was  twelve months, whereas the previous  one was cloven months. Handling ami  packing charges were p'.aos-l nt < lu.  same figure aa those i.ir 1'Jio.  It was reoommended that'the various  oi $1,630.10 bs SSt aside lor iw.'issiuy  The net earnings oi the feed depart  ment were 4 per oent. and a sum ol  (832.17 had been set aside ior tbs pa)r  ment oi a 4 par cent, dividend io tne  members on their food purchases <hu>  in ths year.  Monthly pools bad bean substituted  ior season pools except as to onions.  It had been found necessary to run r 1  season pool covering onions on aocount  of market changes, and the fact of the  oar shortage making il necessary lo go  to oonsidersbls extra expense ior  storage, etc. A season pool was tha  only fair way in which to handle tlui  aocount. By reason ol haviagnoithli  pools, all shipments esoept r> pur cent.  oi ths apple crop had been "aosnw-.t  oi saled" to growers when tns books  had bean closed lor ths /sar. When  ths books had been closed at the end  oi 1915 season, 40 per cent, oi th,  apple shipments and all onions vne  still to be aooounted lor to growers.  Unusually good weather t.ad j ie-  vailed during the upple psekuw season  and picking was not IntsOTi led by  rain at any time. A result oi inis  was a ssrious shortage ol orchard  boxes. Plans havs been coosiJe-M f��r  increasing the packing output next  season,; and it jgas reoomineidsd thnt  the booming board consider the pur  ahaas ol a large additional sup;'1.*' oi  orohard boxes.  The government .had called upon the  Exohange ior the first annaal instalment due in repayment ol the rjovw*  mont loan. The board hid issued a  oall on stock in September, end pay-  ment due ths government sinking  lund had since Jjeon made.  Arrangements wars under way, ths  ���sport eowtimied, lor ths operation  ol  i<oss ou tba ice account ior the year  bid bean due le certain requirements  by the railway company which th.,,  ware not in a position to fill, and a  consequent decrease in tbs total number of ears iced.  Thobaiaitos sheet showed s ns* profit  on tha year's business oi $1,012.81 as  compared with HUM9 ths previous  year. Tbs total revenue iron* growers'  frjiit and produce bad been $3ii,114.4l>.  A total oi 114,1133 paslutgss o! iiuit  aad U.vill tons oi vegetables bad been  disposed oi. Oi these tbe largest items  ware 81,764 boxes oi apples, and WM  tone oi onions.  A charge of $540, or 6 per cant, on  $>jm invested in tho ieed .iepiclniem  was ths subject oi soma orrtuUm, il  bung contended that aa tho money  waa part oi tha capital borrowed from  ths government, and upon whioh lhe  numbers ware already paying interest,  thia oxtra charge was uiuuJeisary n.d  might be regarded as penalizing the  pu-phaaere oi feed.  Mr. Brent defended tbs practice  which had obtained from the first, on  tha ground that the feed was in Ilia  nature oi a separate business, conduct  ed ior the benefit oi the :nembsre una  financed by the Exchange aa it ��I tola.  The profits thus made want ior tba  benefit oi the fruit and vegetable shippers by reduoing handling charges.  After a good deal oi more or less  heated argument, Mr. Cxehan moved  that this charge be reduced by 3 per  cent., and the proouuladevoted to increasing the dividend to lead purchasers.    This was carried.  Mr. ii. E. Taylor objected to a profit  oi 10 per oent. being made on bugs,  which growers were supposed to get at  cost price. Us did not sea why ths  handling charges should be made  for other shippers' by profits on bugs  and other things.  As tha discussion proceeded, things  began gradually to assume a livelier  tone, and it waa vary apparent that  there was a strong undercurrent of  dissatisfaction amongst the termers  present, ths cause of whieh seemed to  have aome connection with onions, ior  several efforts ware mado to get goin.  on this topic.  One gentleman, who waa ruled out  ol order, but who finished his question  nevertheless, wanted to know what  etfeot any considerable cancellation ol  contracts would havo upon bundling  charges next season, as he had .board  rumors that there might be a good  many.  There were unmislakalilu murmurs of  approval, too, whan Mr. l'Vlix Carorso  broached ths subject oi onion prioss,  and demanded to know why tha growers had not received better returns in  view oi the very high prices at which  onions bad been selling during! lie past  few months.  When it was decided lhat this was  purely a "Central" matter upon which  no blame oanld attach to the looal  Exchange, urgent culls wars mads for  Mr. Jackson, tbs Central manager,,  and there was muoh outspoken son  damnation ol that gentleman lor not  having oome down to attend the meet-  ing. It was finally deoided that he be  telephoned lor, and all discussion en  matters oi prioes be deierrsd until his  arrival.  THE OALL ON THE SHARES  Another matter whioh evidently  ranked aa a first-rate "grievance" was  in respect to the oall which had bean  made on shares to meet the first instalment ol attiWtrrfl- fond on tho   gov  emmaot'e loan oi eeo.OOO.   This turn-  kfesi    tflo   tsst- for luly haU ol ite  =i=  Manger Jackson of  Central Dies Suddenly  a*  '  The people of Kelowna, and  particularly the 'farmers who attended the recent meeting of the  Growers' Exchange, were startled  and shocked to learn Tuesday  morning of the sudden death of  Msnsger F. T. Jackson, of the  United Growers. Found dead in  hia bed Tuesday morning Mr.  Jackson had apparently succumed  during the night to an . attack of  heart diseese to which he has been  subject for si me time.  The sad event haa caused considerable conaternation throughout the valley for Mr. Jackson had  got most of his planes laid for the  coming season. During the two  yasrs he hss held the important  post of manager of the Okanagan  United Growers he haa given a  vaat amount of energy to his task  of organizing the valley fruit industry, and his place will be haid to  fill.  The late Mr.. Jackson who waa  45 yeara ol as;e, was a native of  Mount Pleasant, Iowa, the son of  an English church clergyman, and  came to British Columbia about  fifteen years ago. Previous to  going with the Okanagan United  Growers he'waa a member ofthe  firm of Daykin ot Jackson in lhe  fruit and produce business in the  Okanagan. He ia survived by a  wife and two children.  The remains have been shipped  back to hia old home for interment. -���  tedious wrangling whioh dragged out  the eeoptons to suoh an inordinate  length. From the tenor ol the remarks oi the various speakers, of  whom Dr. Wansborough Jonas, Mr. C.  S. Smith, and Mr. Crehan wars the  principal ones, it seamed that tba objections ranged themselves under three  heads. First, that tbs bulk ol those  who subscribed lor shares whan lhe  Exchange waa inaugurated, end made  the firat payment of ISO per share,  never expected to be called upon to  pay any mora, and that they had paid  their $20 with tne ides ot securing the  balance of $80 as a loan from the  government, under the, aa it now appeared, mistaken impression that tho  Exchange would take oare oi the repayment oi the loan. Aoting under  this mistake, it was claimed,.mauy  had been led to take more shores than  they otherwise would have done..' The  second objection waa that the oall of  11.70 Waa mors than was actually  necessary to repay the loan in the  staled period. Thirdly, a subsequent  amendment to tbe Agricultural Act  had deprived shareholders of the right  to a vote ior every share held, reduc;  ing them to "one man one vote."  Alter an adjournment ol an hour for  necessary refreshment, discussion on  this question waa resumed, but interrupted by the chairman, who insisted  that the balance chest must first be  disposed of. Accordingly a resolution  was passed adopting the balance she.'I  Reorganize the tm\  Patriotic Fund  Last Thursday in the Board of  Trade room.the Kelowna branch  of the Canadian Patriotic Fund  held its annual meeting! There  was an attendance of about twenty-  five, Mr. L. V. Rogers being elected to the chair. --.  The first business taken up was .  the election of officers, the following being; Selected"; President, J.  W. Jones 'M.P.P.,' vice-president;  Mayor D.r W. Sutherlina\'saiid  secretary-treasurer, J. R. Beale,  Messrs. 1. Bulman and G. Rowcliffe being added tp constitute a  combined executive, and investigating committee.  The secretary 'reported' that  $14,840.96 in all -had-been received by the committee from tbe  provincial branch and distributed  qince September 19I'S[J} The totsl  subscriptions forwarded to headquarters were $4,168.59, and cash  in hand including the proceeds of  the children's concert $453.75.  The subscriptions fell very far  short ot the amount ashsoWoi by  Sir Herbert Amea and Mr. Nation  en their visit. From comparisons  with what other towns are doing  it looked aa though Kelowna was  getting all it could out of the Fund  and giving as little as poaaible in  return. ' .      ���       ���   ���'��� '���'"  There wasa good deal of discussion upon the advisability of.having a large or'smal! cdmmlfte'e and  it was finally decided to empower  the executive to appoint delegates  or agents to .assist them,, -but to  avoid enlarging the committee,  Many plans were discussed for  working up more enthusiasm and  increasing the subscriptions which  at present reflected anything but  credit upon the city.  Votes of thanks were passed to  the ladies who had-organized 'he  very successful cMtore'h's eiitef tain-  merit rrnlifcingilfl 58.65 for the Fund,  to the Rutland. Women's Institute,  and others who had helped with  the work of collecting including the  members o% the old committee.  The appointment ol auditor was thc  next business.    Tenders had been nil  ad   (or   this office, thc only response  being from last year's auditor, Mr. (j  H. Jaokson, and ha waa appointed..  According to ths agenda the election  oi directors should have been the noxt  order ol business, but by resolution i  was deoided to deter this in order to  afford an opportunity ior a discussion  on the general ailairs ol the Exehangp  Dr. Jones acoordir -ly look the opportunity to return to the charge  the question oi the call on shares, and  went into considerable detail to mij  port his contention that only sufficient  should bo oalled annually ior a sinking  fund which, invested by the government in a savings, account would pro*  duce the neoeasary sum in seventeen  years to liquidate the loan. This, he  figured, would be 13.38 per share per  annum.  Finally Dr. Jones proposed and Hr.  0. S. Smith seconded, "that the directors take steps to pan a by-law  that no more should be called . n the  shares than ia necessary to pay the  government demands for sinking fund  without th* oonsent of tlie shareholders." Thia was carried by aiUliTge  majority, though strongly objected tor  by somo as likely to tie the hands of  ths directors in making calls for 'etil  imnto extension ol business.

Prohibition is Subject of a  In opening the discussion on  prohibition at the meeting oi the  Equal Franchise League last week,  Mr. J. C. Richards laid down the  principle that the function of government is to protect persons aud  their property. As Kant said;  Every man may seek his own  happiness provided he does not  injure or defraud others." It ia  Well known that over-eating leads  to more premature deaths than  drinking but this connot be prohibited.  N-.i great teacher of religion has  forb.dden wine except Mahomet.  The wine mentioned throughout  Bibl: history was undoubtedly fermented. Jesus approved >ts use  and promoted its being freely  drunk at the Cana marriage feast,  hence the sneer of the Pharisees  that lie was a wine-bibber.  Prohibition law is never enforced  It results in corruption of the police  and in degrading the liquor traffic.  The sale of liquor continues though  in a hilf-concealed way, and there  is mi control over its quality, nor  Can the government obtain revenue  from it. When prohibition came  into force in Seattle, 137 drug stores  were opened for this sale.  A valuable study of "Tho Temperance Problem" was made by  Mr. Kowntree, a well-known teetotaler, a manufacturer of Cocoa,  1893.. He ahows that prohibition  has nude the.liquor trafnie into a  great force. -The prohibition states  in th years 1888 to 1893 did not  com,mro favourably with non-prohibition states. In Portland, Maine,  the ;u rests foe drunkenness, were on  an average!.32.19, per. thousand  of.tlx- population; in Kansas city  13.89 per thousand; in Desmoins,  lov.a, 16.48 per thausnnd; in the  ami prohibition states, Detroit,  Milhigan, averaged 15.87 arrests  for drunkenness, per. thousand;  and Minneapolis 14.00, The  average for London England waa 5  per thousand. Similarly it is shown  that crime has not been reduced by  prohibition, nor pauperism, nor in  sanilv. Prohibition has certainly  checked immigration,  The extraordinary provisions of  the Prohibition Bill recently voted  upon, especially section 57, "which  ia a peach", were commented upon  with amusement,  Mr. R. B. Kerr said that distilled  liquors were hardly known till the  eighteenth century, and could safely be prohibited. The real dispute  was about fermented liquors such  as wine, beer Snd cider. - These  are called "deadly poisons" in  Canada, and children's foods in  Continental Euorope. On the continent the woid "alcohol" does  not include wine, beer, or eider.  The continental view is probably  right, because it gives ihe best results.

PARADES,t There will be the  usual Patrol meetings during , the  week at the call of the different  Leaders. Patrol Leaders and Seconds will meet at the club room  on Wednesday; the 7th of March  at 7.15 pm.      .  The meeting of Patrol Leaders  and Seconds which was to have  been held on Wednesday of this  week has been postponed to Saturday evening. Last Saturday we  were unable to play basket ball  owing to the non-atrival of the  ball, but this coming Saturday,  unless there is skating, we shall  hold our first practice.  The concert given by the school  children and others in aid of the  Canadian Patriotic Fund is being  repeated on Thursday of this week  in aid of the Red Cross.  Leaders will please see that all  their patrol meetings are over not  later than 8.30 pm., and that the  Scouis go straight home afterwards  unless thev have received their  parents' permisaion, obtained by  the leader, to attend a later meeting.    Al our concert thia year we propose to give an exhibition i of signalling, therefore do not give up  your practising just because you  have now passed the Second Class  test. The time limit will soon be  set for the First Class tests and  everyone should be working on  these from now on. , It will be very  nice to think at the time of our  concert this year that there will  not be any Scout under Second  Class in the troop, unless we take  on some recruits before then. We  know now exactly who can aliened camp with us thi�� year, and. we  will have at least ten less than last  vear, which should be satisfacti ry  as far as the commissariat department is concerned, though we shall  be very sorry indeed to miss those  who have been with us at the  camps held in the past.  tions are ideal, the longeat lived  countries in the world are Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Belgium  and Switzerland, and in all these  countries children*-are given beer  from infancy; French children are  given wine from infancy, and live  longer than white Americans.  Canadian end American woman  are largely teetotal, but are less robust than European woman r who  drink wine or beer all their lives.  On the continent wine or beer  are untaxed and sold without a  licence: consequently they are  as cheap as milk. ..There are no  bara, but only rooms with tables,  where both food and drink are  sold, and men, women, and children are freely admitted.. All these  changes should be adopted in  Canada.  The public house haa done far  more good than harm: it was the  cradle of democracy, and theearly  trade unions met there. Teetotal  Asiatic countries have auffered  greatly from its absence, Fermented liquors have been enormously  valuable in promoting sociability:  all attempts to find a substitute  have failed.   In Luther's words:  "Who loves not wine, women  andisong, .    . ,  Remains a fool his whole life  long."..  Mr. Rogerson advocated prohi-  bilioii as a valuable, experiment  Other speakers favoured govern,  ment control of the sale of liquors,  and the success of the Gothenburg  system was instanced.  Supporters of the Prohibition  Bill recently voted.upon, were unfortunately unable to be present,  KELOWNA THEATRE  Tuesaaj (March 6th)���" Shell Forty-Three."   A Thomas H. Ince  production, with H.

The local troop of Boy Scouts  are to hold a banquet to-morrow  evening at the Lakeview in honor  of the assistant scoutmaster, Mr,  Keown, who is leaving town short  ly to join the Canadian forces. It  is hoped that the boys will do justice to the cook's handy work on  this festive occasion I  Ice has been rather bad on the  lake during the cold weather of  the past week and for several days  the ferry was unable to cross. It  is believed that after last year's  bad freeze-up, the first for many  years, the water never got really  warmed again, and consequently  the moderate cold this vear is sufficient to put a troublesome skin on  the surface.

"11 you eleo.  a board of directors," he said, "givo  thein some discretion, and not mako  absolute mummies of them." The  business men, he' said, had put up  their money to help the farmer, uot  expecting any return from it, and  now ths farmers were squealing be-  cause theyi had to pay '11.30 extra to  tuukc up for men who were away in  thc trenches. /  lie scored the farmers for their lack  of fairness in criticizing Central foi  not getting better prioes, wham they  did nothing to help. "How many o  you," ha asked, "sent word chat you  would have so many tons ready i  September or in October? Instead ol  that you seesawed book and forth until you saw the market going up and  lira, you rushed your stulf in and told  Central to take oare of it. Farmers  were not supporting Central half so  much as Central' waa supporting them.  Seventy per cent, of ths market had  been. penetrated by Central itself during the past year. Cut they must do  their part and let Central know what  they had to sell. It would,, fae a sorry  day, for Ketowna, he said, if the Uix-  ohange went out of existence. .He believed there was sufficient baok-bone  in the distriot to keep it going.  Mr. ball mads the suggestion that  the directors endeavor to pay a dividend of soy 4 per oent. on the subscribed capital.  Ur. Brent announced that it would  be necessary to kunaider a request  for 212,000 for new extensiono to  buildings.  A resolution was passed asking the  government to conduct experiments in  the distriot on onion growing and  curing with a .view to determining the  biest varieties and methods of oulture,  The chairman in response to a request, then gave some details of ths  work of Central. It was the inttn-.i ,i,  he said, to establish separate departments for fruit and vegetables, with  separate managers and boards of directors. During the year 70 per cent,  of the crop had been sold direct, and  only about 30 per oent. through the  brokers. Notwithstanding rumors on  the street, bad debts only amounted  to .04 per cent. Last January about  $61,000 had been still owing to growers on i pools not closed, but thia year  only 812,000 was still unpaid for all  the unions. The cost ofWnning Central had been ��7U,000. Last year over  8271,000, morel business hod been done  at' an extra coat of only 85,900.  He was in favor \of quarterly meetings and keep ng growers in touoli  with the 'affairs of both Looal and  Central'. On the ether hand the only  way to obtain the'best prioes was to  keep Central fully''informed as to orop  prospects. The prioes obtained, (or the  members during the past four years  compared favorably with any obtained  in'the valley, and he challenged contradiction of that statement.  Saturday morning's session was oc  cupied with a discussion of. onion  prices. Hr. Jaokson, who had come  down from Vernon the previous evening, wus present, and there was a  good deal of lively cross-questioning  on this muoh- debated matter. A good  deal of time was taken up by a wordy  duel1 between Ur. Jackson and Mr.  Felix Casorso, the latter taokling the  manages on tbe advisability of allow  ing salesmen |kv have oheq|aes made out  to them in their own names, and whe4  this was finally threshed out, | Mr.  Jaokson was asked to explain why  better prioes had not bean obtained  for the onion crop.  Thia led to a long discussion of the  condit&ras under whioh the local onion  crop had been marketed.   Itlwas point  ed oue that a large proportion kaJ.  been frozen in'the field, and therefore  could not be marketed as No. 1 stock.  Also that oar shortage had remljred  necessary extensive storage in Keliwna  with consequent shrinkage, which had  bejen very)great owing to the froze.i  condition of the onions when placed  into storage. Then the handling ! necessary had been v. i expensive, and  had still 'further reduced the average  returns. Mr. Jaokson questioned  whether, if the onion market bad not  been under vtry good cuntr.-ti. ills farmers would under the conditions have  real zed more than 817 |*jr ton.  There waa on impression, however,  that the extraordinary rise in the price  of onions should have t��j��n more clearly foreseen, and greater advantage  secured for the farmer.  Saturday.afternoon saw the business  of the meeting still unfinished, and as  the theatre was not available, proceedings were continued in the Morrison Hall. In ths temporary absenoe  of Mr. Alien, Mr. Crehan was voted to  the chair.  To avoid further uselees discussion  and waste of time, it was deoided to  appoint a oommittee, consisting of  Messrs. Crehan, Benson, and Buck, to  ake an enquiry into the various  matters under dispute and report to  a inter meeting.r  Balloting for directors resulted in  the fallowing being selected: Messrs. G.  Allen, E. M. Carruthers, L. Dilworth,  II. Hereron, Dr. W. W. Jones, J. E.  Reekie, and Bush.  While the ballots were being counted  Mr. Crehan entertained the audience  with a talk on cooperation, and Mr.  L. E. Taylor appealed for the B. C.  Fruitgrowers' Association.  It seemed to be the general wish  that more frequent meetings be held,  and it was finnlly .decided, on the proposal of Mr. G. E.Seon.to hold quarterly meetings so os to give the farmer an opportunity of keeping in  closer touch with the work, of thc Exchange. '-  A resolution was passed asking tho  ('. P, R. to make Arrangements for n  better car service for next season, as  there would be a greatly increased  tonnage.  With a unanimous and enthusiastic  resolution of confidence in Mr. Brent  as manager of the local Exchange, and  thanks to rehiring directors, the meeting adjourned.  Automobile For Hire  O. D.
