KELOWNA BRITISH COLUMBIA, THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 1916.-6 PAGES  $1.50 Per Annum  City Secures Adequate  Bank Officials Satisfied  With  Condition of City Affairs  An extra meeting of the council was  held Friday morning to deal with several matters whicn hud been awaiting  the return of the Mayor from the  coast. Besides the Mayor then were  present Aldermen Copeland, Duggan,  Harvey, Ra/ttenbury and Sutherland.  His Worship reported the result ot  his financial negotiations on behalf  of the city -with rha provincial superintendent of the liank of Montreal at  Vancouver. The city's position in  view of further loons had been thoroughly discussed, and the bank had  expressed thoir entire satisfaction witti  the way in whioh the oity's business  , was being conducted at present, and  promised to recommend the granting  of the oity's application for a loan  of J3O.00O against current revenue.  In confirmation'of this a letter was  read from the local manager of the  Bank of Montreal, advising that thc  loan referred to had been granted.  This advance it was stated would  enable the city to pay up all accounts  including deferred salaries of the staff  and of the school teachers.  The question was raised as to whether the city staff should be allowed  interest on their deferred pay. It was  decided that as the school staff had  been promised interest at the rate of  8 per cent, the oity staff should be.  . given similar treatment.  Alderman Sutherland reported that  since the last meeting of the council  additional quarters for the looal military unit had'been required. They had  rented the old telephone office from the  Okanagan Telephone Co., at a rental  of 910 per month.  Alderman Sutherland also mentioned  that he had been approached by Mrs.  W. 0. Cameron and Mr. D. McMillan  for a special water rate to enable  them to irrigate their ten-acre blocks  of land in the north word for the pur-  y/oso of growing tomatoes. The council decided that they oould not grant  ,. the request an the present water sys-  / t tern had not been constructed for the  purpose o! supplying water in large  quantities for irrigation purposes. It  waB pointed out that during the aum-  ������j mar tho water plant was worked at  full oapaoity, and the granting of the  application would be in tke nature of  a special privilege which would be a  very' dangerous precedent to establish.  His Worship said' he had been informed that some of the merchants  were desirous of obtaining. a specie,  rate for the purpose of illuminating  ��� . the windows of their stores. Alderman  Sutherland' pointed out that this  would necessitate the installation oi  separate meters, and would also place  the merchants to considerable expense  in having the lights run on a liferent  ,. circuit.  The proposal however was disouwed  but it was decided that even if the  merchants were willing te defray all  costs in connection with the propoit.l  the city oould not afford at present to  make any reduotion in light rates.  The following accounts were panned  for payment:  C. C. Snowdon, supplies      80.60  (Continued on Pan IU       y  0   Conservative Association  Annual Meeting Friday 31st  The annual mcetinr of the Liberal-  Conservative Association for Kelowna  and distriot is to be held next Friday,  March 31st, when the officers for the  coming,year will be appointed. The  meeting is to be held in the Board  of Trade room at 8 o'olook. An open  and hearty invitation is given to all  who favor tho candidature of Mayor  Jones for the provincial legislature  ,and it is especially desired that every  distriot will be fully represented.  Kettle Valley Will Run  Daily Service in Summer  Intimation has been given by Mr.  Grant Hall who has just completed a  tour of inspection, that arrangements  arc being made for inaugurating daily  passenger servioe between Vancouver  and Nelson over the Kettle VaUey  route around by Hope and over the  Coquahalla mountains when the summer time tables are put into effect. Ihe  company intends to commence Us augmented service on tho first Sunday in  .lune, he said. The operation of tha  trains via the now railway - will furnish a Short route between tha coast  and the Similkameen, Oki nignn. th  Boundary and Koottnay districts. The  trains will "leave Vancouver in the, evening and arrive at Nelson the following evening; departing from Vancouver in the morning and getting to Nelson thc following morning. At present it takes practically two days to  make the crip via Arrowhead, Nakusp  and Arrowhead and S,ocan Lakes ro  Nelson. '  Treatment for Winter Injured Trees  By Ben Hoy, Assistant Provincial Horticulturist  Heavy fine for "Drunken  Midnight Brawler  Martin Kerrigan made his appearance before the magistrate Tuesday on  a charge of being drunk and disorderly, and received tho stiff sentence of  $25 ��5r thirty days. From tho evidence  it appears that the night before ho  was indeed vory drunk and "disorderly" waB almost too mild a torm to  apply to his conduct. After .gottin;  his cargo of spirituous' liquor aboard  Kerrigan set out to beat up the town  and indeed succeeded in disturbing the  peace of several citizens. Amongst  other things he walked into the house  of Mr. Jas, HaVvoy and being expelled  he went to Mr. W. Rennie's house on  the north side, and getting .inside at  n late .hour he knocked down the  srove pipes and smashed things around  generally. About a quarter past on-*  in the morning he tried to force his  way, into the homo of Mr. Jermnn  Hunt, but without success. The police  were telephoned for and although Kerrigan hud disappeared on their arrival  he waB traced and apprehended later.  He has boen placed on tho interdict  list.  Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of agriculture, who was so severely burned  about the head nnd arms in the parliament buildings firo as to be conlin .  ed to his room ever,since left Monday  for the south. Mr. Burrell has almost  recovered from his injuries and there  are hopes that he will not be permanently scarred. His doctors have ordered �� complete rest, however, and  the minister will be absent, probr/bly  for rwvwal wmks.  Will Help Investigators  The Legislature Monday afternoon  unanimously agreed to the request  submitted by Mr. M. A. Macdonald,  Liberal member for Vancouver, for the  appointment of a select, committee to  inquire into the payment by the province of $300,000 on account of the  purchase of the KitsilsAo Indian He-  serve. The committee will consist  of Messrs Ernest Miller (chnirm.ia),  Parker Williams, Thomas Gilford, L.  W. Shatford and M. A. Maodonald.'  In connection with tho resolution.  Premier Bowser once again took occasion to voioe the unanimous deei-  sion of the government that every  facility would be given to the opposition in tho letter's effort to investigate the aotions of ihe government.  He said:  "On behalf of tho governmont I  may soy thero iB absolutely no objection to the resolution.- So far us I  am personally concerned, I will welcome the mattqr being thoroughly  gone into. I can not too strongly  emphasize'the desire of Hie government jto assist the opposition in every  possible manner to inquire into cut  record. That promise I have made  on tho floor of this House before, and  I now repeat it."   O   New British Order Will  Keep Out Luxuries  A far-reaohing order-in-oouncil, which  will totally prohibit the importation  into the United Kingdom of n large  number of ,'artioles whioh come under  tho general heading of luxuries, will  be issued by the British Government  *t an early date. Among the thing.  which will be placed under the ban  will be automobiles for private use,  musical instruments, cutlery of all  kinds, hardware, yarns, chinaware  fancy goods and soap. The order  wilLapfly equally to all countries, including (He British dominions and  colonies.  Winter injury to fruit trees appears  in many different forms from the killing of the buds only to the killing of  tho whole tree. Some of the forms  of injury are killing of the buds, killing back the brandies and t.ho 'i|>s,  crotch injpry, trunk splitting, vr.jwn  injury, r0ot injury and black heart.  The killing of th* buds and spuis is  a common form of injury und theije is  a certain amount of it each yeftff. In  some instances the buds ana spurs are  killed, but usually only the bud is  killed. When the buds are killed out  right they turn brown throughout Hnd  the flower never opens, but when the  pistil (the central organ of the flowtr  which developes into fruit) is fulled  the flower will open nnd to an uacriti-  cal observer will appear perfect. ** To  determine the amount s0f injury in the  buds, a number of twigs and branches  containing fruit buds can be t.iken  and placed in water i.i a warm lVora  for a few days and the hea'thy buds  will blossom and the percentage^ of  perfect flowers can be dotermiued.  Another way to ettam^ the buds  is by cutting through them and examining them through a dissecting microscope or �� good magnifying glass.  Tho central portion of ihe bud should  be green for it to be sound. If brown  there will not bo any fruit.  Tn cuscb where tho trees are frozen  back from tho extremeties tho treatment is to cut them back to healthy  wood removing the dead and weakest  portions of the tree. If the bark  and wood appears dry below the dead  portions prune back severely so us to  concentrate the energy of the tree into  a smaller top and encourage wood  production. This will t nl to renew  the vitality of thc tree.  Trunk splitting appears-as cracks or  splits in the. trunk arid larger limbs.  If these cracks are long or extend  from bad crotches it is well to put a  bolt through the trunk or limb before  the wind or weight of the crop may  extend the injury. Where only the  bark*iH split and becomes loosened  from the trunk the treatment is to  cut ofT'the dead and loosened bark to  (the new bark growing underneath as  soon as growth starts, and paint over  the wound. Some people ha-Ve had  results by Bailing thL> loosened bark in  position.  Sun scald, crotch canker, crown injury and other froBt cankers are treated in much the same way. These in-  juriea..are all of a similar nature. The  bark is killed or certain portions     pi  the .tree and the treatment is to cut  out these dead ureas of bark, disinfect  and paint the wound.  Trees severely sun scalded or injured  about tho base of the tree can some  times be saved by bridge-grafting. For  this work all of the dead bark is out  out and the edges trimmed to healthy  sound tissue. Scions from two to three  ! inches longer than from the top** to,  the , bottom ol the wound are chosen  and each end whittled down to a'  wedge shape. The tn:ls are then inserted between the bark and the wood  at the upper and lower extremeties of  the wound. They should be numerous  enough to almost touch each' other.  After they are in, place bind them with  cloth and cover all parte with grafting  wax seeing that there are no exposed  portions.  Black heart results from the discol-  coloration of tho wood and the interior bark and does not show on the  outside of the tree. The discoloration  is sometimes So pronounced as to lead  many to believe that the trees are  dead, but with good treatment such  trees very often recover. By pruning  fairly heavy and giving good enre  throughout tho growing season so a>  to encourage wood growth trees will  sometimes fully recover. If trees ^re  very much weakened by this inyiry  and set a crop of fruit it is well trt  thin very severely, only leaving a very  small crop and in the worst ca^es no  crop at all.  When trees up to about throe years  old are injured enough to stunt them  badly and nnt -kill them, nev> "i'l often bo 'found to be sound below the  snow line (where thero has been a  good fall of snow before tho cold  weather) and if cut back to tho sound  wood, shoots will come up, the'best  of which can!be saved to build (1 row  tree on the old root.  'i rees will sometimes leaf but and  blossom and appear to be making  normal growth until July or August  and then gradually begin to wea* en  and sometimes die before the find of  the season or thoy may live for two  or three seasons before dying. This  is usually the result of root freezing  or crown injury. When it is about  the crown it can be remedied very  often by bridge grafting, but where  the roots are killed thsre is no remedy.  If the rootB are only partially k'lled  and the trees start out well, severe  heading in to offset the loss of the  root area may Rave.the tree.  New Federal Government  - Liquor Legislation  Formal notice haB been given by the  Dominion government of its intention  to introduce liquor legislation. The  government bill is entitled "an act in  aid of provincial legislation prohibiting or restricting the sale of intoxicating liquor."    s  By the terms of the bill the Dominion government will not assume" tho  responsibility for preventing the importation of liquor into a province  which has adopted a prohibition law.  It will simply provide a means by  which that may be done provided a  province haa decided that it iB not  legal for a man to import linuor into  the provlnoe in whl h Ii r;s'dse , for  his personal or household uae.  The responsibility for deciding that  liquor shall not be imported into n  province will continue to rest with  the legislature. Under the provisions  of the proposed act, heavy penalty will  bo impoHed upon dealers who allow  liquor to be taken into any province  which has decided against its importation. >   '  After a debate which at times was  bitter, the British House of Commons  lias passed the government bill providing for a navy of 35(1,000 men. The  naval estimates of* 1914-15 provided for  a navy of 151,000 men.   o   The Russian occupation of Kerind, a  city of Persia, only 125 milea from  Bagdad, is an intimation 'that the day  of the Turk in tho Tigris vallcv neai'B  an end. A range of mountains to the  west of Kerind must be surmounted  before the RusBiana roach the Tigris  watershed, and it. is hoped that in another month the British army of the  Tigris and the Russian army of Persia  will have joined hands.  Songhee Reserve Deal  Is Investigated  The public accounts committee during the past week has been investigating the Liberal charges that money  received by Mr. J. S. H. Matson, in  connection with the Songhees Heserve  purchase in 1911 were improper, but  up to the present the investigation has  not produced any sensations. Mr. M.  A. Macdonald, Liberal member tor  Vancouver, is chief inquisitor. Mr.  Matson has filed va complete statement  on the question, showing details of  expenditures made from the seventy-  five thousand whioh he received aa 6a  percentage commission in putting the  deal through. He shows that of this  sum he was able to return less than  $25,000 for himself, the remainder having gone in various expenditures, including payments to several' friendly  Indians and to others who assisted in  the transaction which required many  long^ and tedious negotiations. Mr.  Matson, flatly denied that any. portion  of the money had ever gone to any  member of the government or legislature, or any civil servant, nor did he  himself use any of the money for political purposes. The Songhees Reserve  now owned by the provincial government is almost in the heart of Victoria and is worth millions. The province made a ffood deal when Mr. Mat  son bought the reserve.  Volouteer Reserve Will  Ballot for Officers  On Thursday afternoon, March 16th,  after a very pleasant drill under Sergeant Seeley, some twenty-five members of the Kel'owna .Reserve met in  the old school to consider the boat  means of reorganizing for the oomiug  season.  Dr. Boyee on taking the chair called  on Mr. Beale, as chairman of the  previous meeting, to outline the various views expressed by different members of the Reserve.  Mr. Beale referred to the ctajllent  work done by the old organization and  the genpral desire of those interested  to keep it active so long as the war  lasted. Several of those, who now  proposed to join had not been -n the  ranks in the previous year, and ihey  and the vast majority of the old members desired reorganization, hence the  present meeting.  Mr. Denison, in reply to certain remarks, voiced the opinion that all  the old officers should resign and allow the new organization to choose  its own leaders. He thought that the  object behind the Reserve wftB s0 good  and the enthusiasm so keen, that no  ono would mind sinking his own personal feelings in U.e interest of the  movement as a whole.  After considerable discussion, in  which Mayor Jones and others took  an active part, Mr. Hicks expressed  the now generally accepted fact that  the people of Kelqwria are too modest,  in many cases, to air their views in  open meeting, and that practioally the  only way to obtain a really popular  and representative choice of officials  would be to ballot* for them. This suggestion met with general approval.  The meeting appeared unanimously  in favor of a -email executive consisting of a president, secretary and 0.0,  It was suggested that the two first  named officials should be well-known  citizens whose organizing abilities Hnd  prominence would peculiarly entitle  them to* occupy such important positions.' The 0. 0, (commanding officer)  completed the trio composing the executive and was to carry out their  program and take charge of all parades and drills.  Dr. Boyee, in his capacity as chairman and with the approval of those  present, nominated Messrs. Denison,  Hicks and Beale as a committee to  see that publicity was given to the  decision to ballot for officials and that  everyone interested had an opportunity to vote. Tho ballots are to be  sealed and left at the" Courier office  before Saturday night.  The meeting for the opening of the  ballots and the subsequent elections of  officers was fixed for 3 o'clock on the  evening of Monday, March 27th in the  north back room of the old school,   s  It is hoped that everyone interested  wjll make a special effort to be present in order to give the movement a>  good start.  Messrs. Denison, Beale and Hicks will  endeavor to get in personal rouch with  all those who have signed on for tha  coming season, in order to deliver ballot papers,. They trust that anyone  seeing this notice, who may have been  accidentally overlooked-- will call on  one or the other of them with a view  to recording his vote, i They feel that  it is in the interests of all concerned  that a heavy vote should be recorded.  Premier Bowser and  Blue-Ruin liberals  Campaign  of  Suspicion   and  Pessimism is Hurting Credit  of thc Province  In Eaut Africa ("Jeneral SmutB is an  the move.

The Mom-  basfia-lTgandft railway is being used to  bring up tho troops.  The    province of Ontario, according  to     the   provincial treasurer's budget  speech, last year gave Wl, 102,006   fo  patriotic purposes.  British Columbia's population has  declined 25 per cent since the war began owing to enlistment, cessation of  railway work ��nd other causes  A mutiny took place among the men  of the German garrison' a*> Shavli, a  town in the Baltic provinces, owing to  insufficient food, but it was supposed  after an officer and three soldiers had  been killed, and a large number of men  wounded. Nine of the ringleaders were  courtmartiailed and shot.  Recently the Belgium Cabinet decided  unanimously that Belgium's neutrality  shall never be renewed. The neutrality of Belgium, secured by treaty, lull  ed the country into a false sense - of  security, so no effort to create an adequate military organization oould meet  success. But for this Belgium would  have had a force of between five and  six hundred th0usand men to oppose  Germany.  Any assertion which the Liberal  workers may have made that Premier  Bowser was failing both physically "and  politically must have been rudely  shocked last Monday afternoon when  the provincial Conservative leader  made his first extended speech of the  session in the House. Premier Bowser  spoke for over an hour, dealing with  the political issues which have been  used by the Liberals during the past  two months for the manufacture 0fso  much political capital. Tne Premier  was in good voice and showed no  signs of fatigue. A largo crowd sat  in the gallery and heard Hon Mr.  ser score the Liberal party for its  blue ruin policy.  One of the first topics taken up by  tha speaker was the retirement from  the Premiership of Sir Richard Mc-  Bride. There were a great many unkind remarks to the effect that he had  forced Sir Richard out of office. Ihose  who knew former Premier McBride  however Vould realize that it would  take a>better man then himself, said  the speaker, to force the prestnt Agent  General to leave his position. As a  matter of fact, for the past two years.  Sir Richard McBride had made up his  mind to go to London, his ambition  being to take greater strides in the.  Imperial politics. Premier Bowser declared that there was no man of his  age in the Empire s0 persona grata  that the leaders of Imperial thought  in London as Sir Richard. With Ex-  Premier McBride as her representative  the present therefore was' British Columbia's opportunity.,  Premier Bowser gave some interesting details regarding the recent conference with the opposition over Contentious measures. He told the House  that Mr. Brewster had at that (itimo  demanded that Agricultural Credits  matter be laid over for this session,  apparently, Mr. Brewster's idfla of,  that in the event of winning the election, he would J)e able to make the  thirty-six appointments contemplated  by this act. "For the purpose of getting thirty-six jobs for the hangers-on  of the Liberal party, and Mr, Brewster has hundreds of them today,"  sajd the Premier, "the leader of the  opposition would make the farmers  wait for their money. I may say  that it is the intention of the government to proceed under this act without delay. On account of the war  wo are unable to get the amount of  money we would desire but we are now  calling for tenders for one million dollars, which we, will be able to borrow, I am informed, at less than 6  per cent, nnd can lend to the farmers  from thirVvy to thirty-six years at  1 per cent additional.  Dealing with the financial situation  the Premier produced figures to ah>w  that the fiscal year ending Maroh 31,  WIS, the government had retraced  over a million and a half from assessments for the year, that is to say, it  had not spent within that amount of  money of the total estimated at the  beginning of the year. He pointed  out that Mr. Brewster was. only twelve  millions,out in his statement about  tho amount of aid to the P.G.R. and  thirteen and a half millions astray  in his figures on "Agricultural Pro*  ducts." He asked what was Mr.  Brewster's policy on ship-buiWing, agricultural aid, returned soldier's aid  and the Pacific Great Eastern. So far  lhe Liberals had not announced any  platform whatever, but spent lh>|r  time in denouncing the govemmmt  nnd knocking tho financial credit of  tho province.  "The independent voter at this time  ia badly affected by political revelations in cither provinces" declared Premier Bowser, "and thc people of B.C.  (Continued on Pace Phi  There was a good attendance last  night at the Opera House to hear Mr.  and Mrs. A. J..

Scott, the deputy minister of agriculture, in tha initial number of the Agricultural Journal, which  is published from the government offices in Victoria, gives some valuable  suggestions to the farmers and fruitgrowers of British Columbia. He deals  at some length with th.1 difficulties  which have beset the way of tha man  on the lan.l for some time, and inspires thero with new hope, and asks  all to put their sIiiuUIts to the wheel  and make agriculture thy first industry of the province. Under the caption of "Helping the Empire" he says:  In these stressful times, when the  countries of Europe are being ravaged  and laid waste by the barbarities "of  modern warfare, it behooves all of us  to do all that wo possibly can to help  our Empire towards she victorious eon  elusion of the war, s(1 that a perraan-  enr peace may be established, jvhen  the warring countries will be able to  heal their wounds nnd repair war's desolation, j  The farmers of B. t'., can and will  do their share, by striving to keep  things going and increasing production  This does not necessitate increasing  acreage under crops, but rather increasing returns by the adoption of  better farming methods.  Sow cleaner and betterG seeds and  you will secure better crops. Prepare  your ground thoroughly; see that you  have an ideal E��ed bed; cultivate your  crops sufficiently; irrigate with intelligence. All this means larger yields  and better quality.  Dairymen, weigh your milk and use  a Babcock tester, and find out which  are the paying cows un] which are the  boarders. Breed from }l carefully selected sire. Remember that .the sire is  the foundation of the herd. Set yourselves a standard of milk yield, and  tjftt rid of those thai fall beneath it.  Keep th(. heifers from your best cows,  and you will be surprised in a few  years to see how you hive rais d your  standard of production.  Poul'trymen, also, remember, the, principle of breeding from selection, and  increase your epg yield by its adoption.  farmers, be more busln issltke. Keep  a careful record of your farm operations. This cm easily be d( n > by a  simple system of bookkeeping. Be methodical. Lot there be a right place  for everything, and a, right time for  doing everything. Persevere] bo industrious; pay attrition to detail and  study economy in production, and you  ���will bP rewarded, nnd have the Batis-  Jfaction of seeing your returns inOre&BO  materially.  Our province is undergoing a severe  financial strain by importing many  millions of dollars' worth of beef, mutton, pork, dairy and' poultry products, 'fruits and vegetables, which  with our matchless oKmate and fertile  Boils, wo can produce to good advantage in our own country. It is our  duty as farmers to make good ns far  as wc possibly can this wastnge.'nnd  it is also the duty of the consuming  public to demand home grown produce and home raised stock in prefer-  once to tho imported artick. How ^rn  our province enjoy the fuHest degree Gf  prosperity when it is undergoing such  a needless financial drain? What ' a  difference it would make if this money  were kept in circulation amongst our  own people, and there is n:> reason  why it should n:>t. Farmers, let us  make up our minds to produce what  iu needed for home consumption.     By  increasing our production/we shall be  well serving our Country anl empire.  Farmers, why are you not getting  the price for the produce of your farm  to which you are justly entitled? The  8JQ3Wer is not far to seek. Individual-  llTO is the nightmare ol farming. You  have no method in your marketing.  One farmer is selling against the other,  and by so doing, you are giving a  splendid opportunity, ,,f which he is  not slow to take ddvcnUige, to th*  man who buys your produce. You  now have to accept what 18 offered to  you. Is it riot time ih-tt you had a  Boy     yourselves     in. the    price (>f    'he  commodity you have for Hale?       Flow  can this be done'' Vqu will ask. 1  would reply, K killing ihis Individual'  istie spirit, and setting up In its place  thc oo-operative spirit. Thus,, who  handle and market your produce arc  well organized. Become ��o yourselves  or you will always be tlie under don.  Co-operation carried out along irood  business lines and loyally supported by  all farmers, will remedy this, and allow you to have n say in the price  of your farm products, and will do  away with the present anomaly iii  farming, which is the only business  where the price is fixed by tho purchaser and not by tho producer, ns it  should be.  Away tIn n with rivalries, differences  and jealousies. Corns together, and by  united effort put forming in the position in which it should be. viz, the  first  industry  of our  province.  It has been truly said that successful cooperation is built ui< on the  ashes of failure. Do not let that be  the case with us. Act at once. Re-  member, however, that this is n matter for the farmers themselves to undertake. No go i n n nl can ojtab-  Ush cooperation, but they can and  will give iUevery liudtimnte support.  In conclusion, may [ axprosa tho  hope that this new vinture of lhe department of agriculture will receive  the approval and support of thos> who  aro making their living off the land in  our province, and that by means of  the cordial cooperation of farmers,  our monthly joutn d wh'uh starts  with a modest beginning, may rapid*  ly increase its sphere of usefulness and  ttnd towards a sympath.'tic co-ordination of effort for the betterment of  agriculture between farmers and this  department.  Let us hope that th' present year  will witness the conclusion of this terrible conflict, and that better days arc  ahead. Meanwhile, do not let us be  downhearted.

Co-operative Egg Circles  The Live Stock branch of the department of agriculture at Ottawa has or  ganized a system of Kgg t'irclos to  unable farmers to secure good prices  by the co-operative marketing of cg^s  A large number huvu already been or  ganized in the east.  Members pay an entrance fee of 50  cents to cover the cost of a stamp,  with which th.1 eggs-are marked for  identification. Bach branch has a  board of seven directors. Business is  done by a branch manager who  curves 1 or 2 cents per dozen for eggs  according as they arc delivered to him  or collected from the fanners. Tanners  are bound to gather eggs, twice daily,  keep them in a cool place, and ship  once (l week. When the eggs t,ro can  filed and graded, the farmers arc paid  accordingly. Results show that members of egg circles havo received from  18 to 22i per cent, higher then lpOal  store prices, and great stimulus has  been given to poultry raising.  In spite or the increased duty on apples 3300 boxes of American fruit were  received in Victoria the week ending  February 26th.  The Co-operative Growers.of Fentic-  ton* has taken a forward Btep with  regard to the importation of power  spraying machines, and has arranged  fo>' the shipment of a carload of the  sprayers. There are IS rnachiniis in  the shipment.

He suggests a likely plan would bo  Id have these balloon'* fixed at cer- j  tain distances on the outskirts ol each  town or district likely to be visited by  Zeppelins. Tliey would lie attached  to light  steel cables fixed  to windlnjf  ���al' to I'aise or lower lliem.  I'lie balloon would he filled with a  light and highly explosive pas, tfhioh  ould be fired through the steel cable  by electricity from the ground, and  his " would cause such a treiuei dous  'xplosion and atmospheric dis-turb-  alice in the clouds that neither Zeppelins nor aeroplanes could withstand it  and would be instantly disabled.  The balloons would havo no weight  to carry except the light steel cuhlo,  and as there would be nothing to  fall to the ground except tho stoel  cable there would be no risk of it doing any damage if the balloon shed  was in tho suburbs, dear of dwelling  houses. If the balloons were raised  one mile 'high, end exploded at that  height the force of tho explosion v ould  travel both upward and horizontally)  so that it would not cause any damage below, and the effect would be felt  over manv square miles up aloft.  The balloons oould be raised from  tho ground to oin mile high in four  or five minutes, ?o that they would  be ready for trn Zeppelins long fceforo  they arrived, and, even if thc Zeppelins wero a mile of two higher up  than the balloon, the exp'o ion would  be just as effective. The gas to I"'  used to fill th' balloons can be made  at a low cost from min-ral oil rc-i  lues, and OOttld be sum-d in ster-1 cyK  Sudors under high pressure so tha tie  balloon could speedily be filled ready  for ascent.

'Che sea is  kept open by icebreakers, two ol  which went from Canada to the assistance of the beleaguered Russians.  Archangel is now a city of -111,001) inhabitants and the const ruction oi  transportation facilities is being rushed. Two years ago it had 0nly three  piers, today it has thirty-five. During  the past yeai'6 103 huge warehouses  have sprung up, but so great is tho  sea-borne trade that these are far  from sufficient and ships have to lie  for weeks in I lie stream before they  can unload. Thc chief drawback '1b  ice, and if it had not been for , this.  Archangel, with its 70 miles of waterfront would have been one of'the finest ports in thc world.  But there in a great system of inland waterways connecting Archangel  with all the interior of Russia and it  is possible to snip goods in summer  by water to nearly every town in the  country. Tho barged and river boats  carry up to 2j0Q0 tons each. There  lias been a tremendous congestion of  cotton at Archangel.  At Kola in Lapland, a port is lie-  ing developed- A railway to it will be  constructed very shortly and1 tho value  of that port is that the gulf stream  has '.'nough effect to keep it open all  the year around. With this railway in  operation, the whole of Itussia nnd  Siberia will' be linked together.  G. H. KERR, Auctioneer  Auction  Having     received      instructions  (rom Mr. H. D.

Coronation, Afterta  Portugal in the War  Four days after the announcement 0i  a state of war between Great Britain  and Germany says, "The Nation,' New  York, the Portuguese Chamber entrusted- the government with full powers to  deal with the situation. The premier,  however, announced that .for, the  time being it had not seemed necessary in the interests of the understanding with England to abandon neutrality. Desultory skirmishing between  Portuguese and German troops in Africa was reported during the early  weeks of the war, but formal neutrality remained unimpaired until, the  Portuguese government by the reoent  seizure of German shipping invited thr  declaration of war which came recently from Berlin. Anglo-Portuguese  friendship is a matter of more than  two hundred years, 0r since tlie conclusion of the Methucn commercial  treaty in 1703, by which Portugal become economically dependent on Britain, not altogether to her own good.  The record of friendship suffered a brief  interruption in 1869, when colonial  troops under Serpa Pinto made an  attempt to bridge the gap between  Portuguese East Afrioa and Angola on  the west coast, and so interpose a  barrier to British expansion into what  is now Rhodesia. After a severe crisis  the dispute was adjusted with mutual  satisfaction. During-, the Boer war  relations were more than amicable.  It is upon England's invitation that  Portugal has very likely joined in the  fray at this late hour. But it ia also  probable that Portugal, was a willing  party. She may hav0 welcomed such a  step as one. way out of the domestic  troubles which have afflicted the country since the establishment of -the  Republio in 1910. Partisan differences  may be expected t0 disappear before a  common enemy. At the same time,  the risk is not a heavy one. There  is no way in which Germany can  strike at Portugal except by an isolated submarine attack on Portuguese  ships. Neither is there much chance of  Portugal's coming into contact with  the German forces on land. The Portuguese army would hardly be felt ii  by any chance it should be brought  to the front, und of that there iB very  little ohanoe. It is a safe war for  the little republic.  What, then, does England stand to  gain by her ally? The confiscated  German shipping may be oi some help  in the present heavy strain on tho  British commercial fleet. But that is  hardly the main motive. For Britain's real aim we must look outside of  Europe, to the South Atlantic and to  Africa. With Pgrtugal formally in the  war, her island possessions are available as operating centres for British  cruisers. Madeira lies some seven hundred miles southwest of Gigralter.  Eight hundred miles further south lies  the Cape Verde Islands. These islands  are On the great trade routes between  South Africa and Great Britain, and  it is along these trade routes that  German raiders did their heaviest work  at the beginning oi the war, and again  during the recent exploits of the 'Moe-  wo'. The case of the 'Appam' was a  blow to British pride, and Winston  Churchill might point to the 'Moewe'  and her bag of 60,000 tons of Allied  shipping as un instance of laok of efficiency on the part of she British  navy. Madeira and the Cape Verde Islands offer facilities fori a closer safeguarding uf the ocean routes to Afrioa.  For the situation within Afrioa the  action of Portugal may have broad  Bignifioanoe. Portuguese East Afrioa  or Mozambique and West Afrioa or  Angola, comprise noarly 800,000 squar6  miles, though with a thin population  of' less than ten millions. Rumors oi  the disposal of theso colonics to Great  Britain are not recent. It is not Impossible that part of the understanding between Great Britain and Portugal has reference to the letter's Afri-  oaa Umpire. Portuguese East Africa  lie* beeween Natal and Transvaal and  German East Africa. Its acquisition  would leave the latter surrounded by  British territory on the north and  south and Belgium territory on rhe  west. Angola lies north of German  Southwest Afrioa. The latter is now  in British possession, so that the ac-  -quisition of Angola would make the  British dominions on the west coast  Btratoh from the Capo to the mouth  of the Congo. Against German East  Africa an aotivf'campaign is now under way. Before the end of the war  thiB last of Germany's colonies is very  likely to go the way of the others.  In that case British territory on the  east coast would run* Irom the Cape to  the Sudan, and so to the Mediterranean. Tho dream of Cecil Rhodes  would be realized.

Watch the advertising columns and see the  class of merchants and manufacturers that use  this method of publicity. You will find they are  the most successful in their respective lives.  Many of them have tried other methods, but experience has shown them that newspaper advertising has no equal in bringing results. The reason for this is that the paper is read in the home,  when the mind of the reader is in a receptive condition, and on the lookout for anything that will  make life easier or more pleasant.

The regular monthly meeting ot the  Westbank Farmers' Institute was held  last Tuesday evening in ithe school  house. After the customary reading  and adoption of the minutes of the  lust meeting a short time was spent  in disoussing a circular from the Dominion government dealing >vith a  proposed act to make it unlawful for  cold storage, preserved or foreign et-'gs  to be sold in Canada unlesB '..ho,, were  stamped or marked as such, the purpose of this legislation being to ensure a better market for Canadian  produced fresh eggs. After 1. brief  discussion on the various phases of the  question, all the members signnd a  pocition, thereby giving the government their support to the act. The  secretary, Mr. M. liussell oxpUiuul u  few details in regard to the packing  school now being held here old then  followed the real business of the evening���tho report ot Mr. W. Gore, who  hud attended the; Central Farmers' In-  stieute at Victoria as the delegate  from the Westbank Instotute. Mr. Gors  guve a very interesting a��d instructive  address on the proceedings of the convention, und went into detailed explan  ntioii of the various rcaolutions which  were brought before the convention by  the differenfl institutes of the province, explaining in each uase what action the convention had taken on the  matter. Mr. Gore was somewhat disappointed ut the result of the resolution carried by him from the local institute, whioh had been somewhat disfigured and manipulated to meet tha  wishes of ithe resolutions committee.  The resolution was as follows: "Besol-  ved that having in view the eatenuLe  tracts of arable lands which oould be  brought under irrigation, this convention urge upon the government the desirability of having, the provisions of  the BUI relating to ithe establishment  of Water Municipalities carried into  effect with as little delay as possible."  This resolution being on the same Hues  as, that advanced by the Martin Trui-  rie Farmers' Institute was discussed"  along with that, but according to Mr.  Gore received very little sympathy  from the coast -delegates, who took  the stand that people who settled on  land with a shortage of water, supply  knowingly courted trouble, and should  expect no relief from ihe government.  However Mr. Scott, the Deputy Minister of Agriouiture, gave the assurance  that the government wus carrying out  the water municipalities act as best it  could under present financial conditions, and also sta ted that the government would stand behind the present irrigation companies to ensure  that the farmer got tor irrigation purposes all water at present available.  Mr.G ore said that this was all that  oould be oxpectcd at present from  Victoria. Then trho speaker gave an  interesting review of u speech delivered  by Mr. A. Lucas, M.L.A., on the "Agricultural Credit* Aot," in whioh Mr.  Lucas dearly traced the helpful effeot  produced by similar acts in Australia  and jNew '/jts land nnd showed how it  would relieve the financial depression  in tho rural romrcunlties of B. C. ��� In  conclusion Mr. 'loro advised that all  fanners should (jive their support to  the proposed bill. A hearty vote 0'  thanks was tendered to Mr. Gore for  his excellent, y. -rl; -is delegate nfter  which the meriting adjourned.
