Government Control of
Irrigation Systems
Farmers' Institute Decide to Commence Actix^ Campaign
Amongst the Farmers' in the District for Government
Supply of Irrigation Water;
I) „•■>-'-.
A   meeting    of   the   Farmers'
Institute was  held   last Saturday
afternoon for the purpose of receiving reports from the delegate's who
had attended  the  Irrigation Convention at Kamlpdpjs.   There was
some delay in starting the meeting
;   owing   to ^he    absence 7of.   the
president and vice-president.    Mr.
,M^ Hereron was eventually elected

■■•^'<^!_l;V'.|^Aey;I_ad- had more time
•thb;proposal   might' have   been
worded a little better. ' Perhaps; it
: was asking a little too much at Brat
' It might have been more reasonable
to ask the government to take hold
. only in those sections where it was
: necessary.   A more moderate proposal of that kind might have met
vith more support.- As it was, how-?
ever,' everybody present seemed to
realize the importance of the matter. .'They had   received   strong
support  from   the   farmers   and
7ranchers in other districts.    Ours
;was\ nipt the only district with a
kick coming.   Almost every other
district told the same story.    In
fact there had been some wild, talk
. ibf setding .their ^difficulties, With
shot guns and rifles.   It Was not so
much the talk that was significant,
but the cause of it*   There must be
' some serious disturbance in the
;mmd8 pf thosei who could talk like
"that. '   "-"'W »'■"'.'
When the resolution,came up,
continued Dr. Dickson, there was
a good deal of support and a good
deal of opposition. The farmers
were not sufficiently represented at
the convention, and it became evident after some discussion, that the
opposition was so strong that the
resolution as it stood had hot much
chance. If it had been directly put
and voted down a wrong impression would have been conveyed.
Mr. Martin Burrell, who had been
present at the convention had spoken of a scheme embodied in a later
resolution, whereby the government
should lend their aid to irrigation
projects on the same lines as they
assist railway companies, and on
his suggestion, this resolution had
been conbined with their, own
which asked for entire government
While they did not, continued Dr.
Dickson, get the resolution through
in the shape they would have liked
most, yet much had been done.
"The matter had been brought before the notice of the governing
body, and.they had the premieres
assurance that it would be given
every consideration. By thia means
they hoped to get in the .thin end of
the wedge. It was then Up to the
farmers themselves. If this district
felt strong enough to ask the government to build reservoirs, they
would be able to supply water sufficient for all purposes.
He agreed with the suggestion
which had been made, thatfarmeis
ought to get together and prepare
carefully worded petitions. There
-would be no difficulty in getting
the signature of every farmer and
rancher is the district.
The speaker referred to the splendid systems of irrigation which are
working so successfully in California
From what he had learnt of the
magnificent irrigation works in otb
er places he was convinced^ that
irrigation in this district was only
in its, infancy." Until* we' had the
means, of, embarking^ u#'_jn.jarjas;
and broader schemes we should
not do • much good. What we
wanted was every acre of land in
the valley Settled, and every one
amply supplied with water. Only
the government was capable of
taking in hand an irrigation scheme
on such a scale. It was up to the
people to say what .they wanted.
If the farmers were united in the
demands then the government had
promised to take the matter into
consideration. And if they are
willing, then they should be given
the chance. If we had to take
some means of getting'the opinion
of everyone in the !district' we
should be going a long way towards
the attainment of this purpose.
■ He spoke of the enormous waste
of money over individual and haphazard schemes. All this waste ori
ineffectual work was a hindrance
,to development. If the government-had to take hold they would
seek the most' expert information
from other countries and put in
-something which would, last-not a
year or two but permanently.
Dr. Dickson was loudly applauded on resuming his seat.
Mr. Pridham said/the best thing
to do would be to get a sort of
census of the opinions of the farmers in the d istrict. ln respect to the
dissatisfaction amongst the water
users, he had been here for many
years and the same difficulties have
occiired time after time. Many of
these difficulties he believed could
Be overcome by the government
putting in proper facilities. Personally he would like, to see the
government take hold, though he
was afraid it would take a long
time to get .things into working
Mr. Smith of South Okanagan,
suggested that delegates be chosen
from the 7 varjous districts who
could get together and, formulate
some definite plan of action.
" It was finally decided on the
motion of Mr. M. Hereon that a
committee be appointed consisting
of two delegates from each district
who could meet together and frame
a petition to be handed round in
the district for signature.
It was felt that a vigorous campaign should be instituted in order
to get everybody concerned interested in the project.
A meeting of the! delegates appointed was .called for "Saturday
next at 3 p.m. in Raymer* Hall.
$10,500 Was Loss
in Last Week's
The total loss from last week's
fire in Josselyn's building has been
figured at $10,500 as follows:
C. C. Josselyn, stock and building,
$7,000; E. J. Pettigrew, $1,500;
Mrs. Tutr-her, $2,000. The representative of insurance companies
concerned was in town last Friday
and all claims were allowed in full.
E. J. Pettigrew was fully covered
receiving $1,500
1 Mrs. Tutcher was insured to the
amount of $1,000. Some of her
stock and fixtures also were saved
and removed to the Kellar Block.
Dr. Kellar is having the large corner store divided into two, and in
one portion Mrs. Tutcher will reopen her millinery parlor as soon as
arrangements can be completed.
C.C.. Josselyn was the heaviest
loser, only $3,800 but of his $7000
loss being covered. A large quantity of stock however was very little
damaged, some not even touched.
As soon as he can get things into
shape he intends holding a fire
sale, to clear of the remainder, of
the stock.

Straight Talk
By Mr. Metcalfe
Strong  Criticisms of Packing
and Shipping Methods
.The Whelan's * Sunday school
held its annual "picnic at Wood's
Lake on Friday,'Aug. 12.' It was
an ideal picnic day and few roads
are more inviting for a drive'than
that over which the parents and
children of the ; Whelan Sunday
school passed on their way to the
lake oh Friday,morning. A baige
had been secured, for the day and
on board this tables were built and
dinner prepared... A picnic dinner
is always.enjoyed, but as the barge
steamed up Wood's Lake and into
Long Lake it was difficult to tell
which was being most enjoyed—
the sumptious dinner or the beautiful mountain and orchard scenery
that skirts these lakes. Returning
to the foot of Wood's Lake about
4.30 p.m.. the-next couple of hours
was spent in boating and bathing.
So much pleasure did these afford
that some of the children were
loath to heed the call of supper at
6.30. After supper all prepared
for the home drive, each assuring
the others of a very enjoyable time
and everyone sorry that such picnics
are only annual.
kev. Mr. Williamson, .Provincial
Sunday School Secretary, who was
a delegates to the World's Sunday
School Convention at Washington,
D.C. will be in Kelowna on Sunday
Aug. 28 and will preach at the
Baptist church at 11 a.m. and the

Mr. J. C. Metcalfe's report for
last week came to hand too late
for publication. The following are
a few of the more interesting matters dealt with:
The report is current that the
Royal Fruit Co., of Edmonton, has
bought the fruit output of Salmon
Arm.B.C. i
American fruit, both California
and Washington, is in great evidence here (Moose Jaw). The
jobbers are avoiding buying large
quantities of early fruits of different
varieties at present, and looking
for or anticipating still lower quotations than at present quoted.
Brandon, July 29.—The manager
of the MacPherson Fruit Co here
stated that he was buying California
and Washington peaches to supply
his trade for the purpose of protecting himself against other jobbers
filling the markets before ours
came in. He further stated he
was very doubtful if we had any
such crop as we anticipated in B.
C. of the different varieties of fruit
as estimated. He had been disappointed so often in B.C. fruit,
and instanced an experience with
one firm in respect to strawberries
this season. ; The firm stated they
could supply five or six carloads and
quoted price.' He closed with them
at price and arranged with them to
ship cars three days apart, and
never' got but one carload. He
further stated he could not obtain
cherries after their sending out and
his receiving quotations and quantities to be shipped by the foregoing <firm this season.
It is quite evidehtthatprices'wiH
not rule high for certain varieties
of fruit on these markets and it Will
be necessary, for our shippers to
get in touch with the jobbers and
retailers at once, and although they
may- not buy heavily at the present
date for future shipment,, they are
buying for immediate shipment and
delivery a certain number of cars
pec week to supply their trade.
B. C. shippers should use every effort to make sales for their future
delivery and also for immediate shipment as well, and get their
connections for the later and heavier shipments to follow. By this
means they will prevent, in a measure, the American shipper gettting
his conhjectron with jobbers here.
I hope growers and shippers have
perfected all their arrangements for
handling promptly as to labour,
packages, and transportation etc.,
and make every endeavour to put
nn n Kjarh-glaaa rvfoduci Ul CVCrv TC-
spect of the different varieties of
fruits they may have to ship.
We are, doing a considerable
amount of advertising everywhere
calling and giving interviews to
wholesalers and retailers as well as
to the press. In addition to this
we,are spending, by the advice of
your government, a certain amount
of advertising in leading papers at
principal points.
This week the commissioner
ports as follows:
Regina, Aug. 1.—Manager Vernon Fruit Co., here reports seven
cases of raspberries arrived July 26
from Vernon, B.C. were a total loss.
Hot weather in-the end of the
season renders it almost impossible
to ship raspberries long distances
unless shipped under ice. 1 saw
peach plums from Mission, B.C., in
the Regina Trading- Co.'s store
here. Had just arrived, Were rotting
and generally in bad condition,
badly packed, and baskets not full,
and short in weight in comparison
with Washington plums. I weighed
baskets and crates of each. The
B. C. plums were 1 1-4 lb. to basket, or 5 lbs. per case less than the
Washington plums. I also saw B.C.
apricots from Vernon in the same
store. Were sound, but small and
packed,   and   4   lbs. less in
mark to me: " Respecting the fruit,
if this is the manner or method in
which B. C. fruit is going to. be
packed, graded and shipped this
season we want no more of it."
Now, this is most unfortunate that
growers and shippers should ship
out fruit to arrive here in such condition as this did. Shipping associations should supervise and inspect
growers" fruit being shipped by
them, and individual growers and
shippers must exercise greater care
in packing, grading and shipping,
and it you hare a variety of fruit
affected by fungus rot of any kind
whatever, do not ship into these
markets. Market in cannery or at
home, as you will certainly suffer
a loss and realize unsatisfactory returns, and at the same time you are
injuring the reputation of B.C. fruit
as a whole to a great extent, as well
as the individual growers and shippers, and shipping associations who
are making eVery endeavour to
put up a high class fruit product to
sell in these' markets.
I saw 25 boxes of peaches from
Kelowna, B. C, in jobbing house
here, which had been packed
and shipped in apple boxes, without paper — just thrown in. Apparently had been ripe when shipped. Were rotting, too much fruit
in one box. This method of
shipping peaches is certain to prove
unsatisfactory to growers and shippers, in the way of diminished re*
turns and at the same time not
acceptable to the trade here.
Peaches, being a tender fruit should
be picked in the right condition,
well wrapped and packed and
shipped in the regulation peach
box. Don't attempt any innovations
in the way of shipping unless you
are prepared to pay for the. experiments, more particularly at this
time when you are trying to move
a *ood crop''for profitable returns.
I. also saw 15 cases of CUvette
cherries here from the Progress
Packing Co., Victoria, Arrived in
good condition, baskets well filled
and packed. I further saw about
65 cases of peaches^ from Vernon,
B. C, in jobbing house here, liad
been shipped in regulation box,
were sound and fairly well packed,
but showed large chamois colored
patches on the fruit., It gave them
a bad appearance in comparison
with perfect fruit, and would certainly detract from market price. 1
supposed it was attributable to
mildew, and this along with other
details of orchard, work must be
done with care and judgement to
avoid injury and bad results. ' The
few peaches arriving at present
from B. C. are; coming in by express, no car lots as yet.
Jobbers at this and other points
complain of the. unsatisfactory
methods pursued by some shippers
of B. C. quoting prices and agreeing to ship, then, after jobbers have
nreif.Tt.A    ._i«v fail   tr.   ___»   «.,»      Tl_:_.
— -——-—-» — m*j ■ » — •--- «v-**««-«*w. _ ti«o
annoys and disappoints them and
they resolve not to handle B. C.
fruit if it can be obtained elsewhere.
This method of doing business is
most unsatisfactory and will work
more injury to the shippers than
the purchasers if it is continued.
There arrived at Regina by express from July 18 to 30 709 crates
of berries, 58 crates of cherries and
29 crates of berries for C. N. R.
express for the north.
Calgary, Aug. 3.— I saw cherries
from Victoria Fruit Growers'Union
Victoria, in jobbing house here,
arrived in excellent condition. Nice
stock, about 24 lbs. tp the case, but
I think it would be better to quote
as 24 lbs. because a 4-5 basket if
filled will hold 30 lbs. net of fruit,
and with 24 lbs. quoted buyers will
not expect baskets so well filled.
Or, if quoted as 30 lbs., fill to the
top. B. C. blackberries arriving in
excellent condition, but in limited
quantities at present, jobbers selling
retailers $2.75 per case of 24
baskets 4-5 size.
The following is a quotation from
the Central Produce Co., Wen-1
atchee, to Plunkett & Savage,
jobbers here, f. o. b. point of shipment:
Plums and prunes, assorted, por case $ .75
weight than the Washington apricot* per case. The manager and
buyer of the fruit dept. of Regina
Trading Co.'s store made this
Peaches, Early Crawford, per case.!.     .50
Apples, no grade, per case      .90

Government Will Select Four
in the Okanagan
W. E. Scott, deputy minister of
agticulture, has made the announcement that within about a month the
sites for orchards for experimental
purposes will be finally chosen,
there being over 20 to establish.
At the present time the intention of
of the department is to place them
roughly as follows : Vancouver
Island, two ; Lower Mainland, two
or three; Yale-Kamloops, four;
Okanagan, four ;. Columbia Valley,
one ; Boundary, one or two ; Kootenay and Arrow districts, six. This
is open to alteration, but it is not"
considered likely that there will be
any changes of importance.
The horticulturists, of each district will get applications from all
persons in their sections desirous
of maintaining the orchard work.
These will then be considered by
the department and a choice arrived at. The understanding is
that the applicant will furnish a
five-acre tract, which .'the government will prepare and plant with
trees, The keeper is then to conduct the orchard as Outlined -by
the provincial horticulturist up to a '■
certain amount per acre, as decided
as necessary for the commercial
expenditure in that district.
The men in charge of the orchards /
will  get  practical  help   of   gieat
value, and have the benefit of the
advice  of • experts in  the department.     Mr. Scott considers   that
there will be plenty- of fruit enthusiasts in each district; ready to    t ,-,--
dey<rte their land and tirrit'to ' th6~" ;'1 ^
service on the conditions described.
As i* will be up to the ..government   to   get   results■; from    the,
orchards, great care is to be exer-'
cised in the selection of the land
and the men. A   . '
The orchards are to be "used at
certain times of the year for demonstrations for the district; when
gatherings will be held and the
right practices in planting, irrigating
spraying, pruning'and'picking will
be shown.   7-7

Liquor Reoenue
It is estimated that the agregate of Dominion, Provincial and Municipal revenue
derived from the liquor traffie in the Dominion of Canada amounts to about $17,-
The amount of the money paid by the
consumers for strong drink is estimated at
over $76,000,000. It is therefore, manifest
that the amount of money which reaches
thepuMic treasury through the liquor traffic, is only about one-fifth of what the
tax-payers contribute.
Those engaged in the liquor business
are practically tax-collectors, although they
sometimes talk of themselves as tax-payers,
and boast of the large sums they contribute
to the public funds. As a matter of fact,
they contribute nothing.
The man whose work upon his farm results in the production of $5,000 worth of
goods, and who pays a part of his profit in
taxes, adds largely to the wealth of the community; and inasmuch as those who buy
his grain have value for their money, he
may rightly be said to produce what he
contributes in taxation, and therefore he
pays taxes.
The work ofthe liquor-maker and liquor
seller results in the destruction of valuable
grain, and the gathering from the public of"
large sums of money for which those who
pay have no property of any kind to show
as a result of their investment. The liquor
dealers merely gather money from other
people who are impoverished by the gathering, and turn over part of their spoils to
the public funds. They are not wealth
producers, nor, in the strict sense of the
term, are they even tax.payers.
The taxes collected through the liquor
traffic are not paid by the Mquor traffic.
They are paid by men who are poorer because of their collection. They are paid
by men largely who cannot afford to pay
them, and whose families suffer because
of the payment. They are earned sometimes by women, who work hard at menial toil, and whose wages go to buy drink
for worthless husbands. They are paid by
little girls: who toil in factories to keep up
homes that drinking fathers neglect. They
are paid by starvation of children, who go
to school hungry, or with insufficient clothing.
The liqnor traffic, the men engaged in
the liquor traffic, pay no taxes. They are
parasites. They live ou the earning, and
by the impoverishment of other people.
The only function they perform.which has
any semblance to utility, is that of tax collectors ; and their tax-collecting is the most
extravagant, tyranical, heartless phase of
our governmental system. The men in
the liquor business ought to be ashamed
of themselves. The country ought to be
ashamed of them. They are an incubus
on the body politic. They produce no
wealth. They are a nuisance and a burden. Such a business ought not to be tolerated by civilized people.—The Pioneer. .

Kelowna is to be honored
next month' by the holding at
this point of the annual convention of the British Columbia
School Trustees' Association,
and prominent educational
authorities from all parts of the
province will be*paying us'a
visit. The programme of the
convention has not yet been
announced, but many important matters having a far-reaching influence on the progress
of education in the province
will come under the consideration of the assembly.
Preparations are; being made
for the reception of the delegates in a fitting manner. The
arrangements are in the hands
of Mr. Thos; Lawson, who is
himself vice-president, of the
Association, and it will be
surprising if the visitors do
not receive a1 welcome which
will give them cause to carry
away the -pleasantest recollections of Kelowna and district.
The Vancouver World, in a
last week's issue, indulges in a
somewhat unnecessary and unwarranted disparagement of
Kelowna as a centre for holding of the Convention. Its
chief fear* apparently, is that
there might be some difficulty
experienced in getting reports
of the meetings through to the
Coast papers.
That is all very well so far
as it goes, though we venture
to think that the difficulties
of the telegraphic service are
not so great that they can not
be overcome by a little previous
arrangement. In fact the secretary of the Association, Mr.
J. J. Dougan, has already assured the World that arrangements are complete for giving
a full daily report of the proceedings. 7 .
There are many advantages
in holding a convention of this
kind each yearr at a different
point in the province. It gives
the rural school districts a closer
and more active interest in the
work of the Association, and
at the same time affords coast
delegates an opportunity of
seeing something of the country
they live in. It was significant,
by the way, (hat at last year's
convention at Chilliwack, when
Kelowna was proposed as the
next place of meeting, the representatives from the coast
were the most enthusiastic in
support of the proposal, as it
would give them an opportunity of seeing something of the
famous Okanagan Valley.

"Pierre of the Plains."
With , the representation of " Pierre of
the Plains" by the Harold Nelson company of players st the' Opera House next
Saturday, and Monday; the pinnacle of
local interest has been reached. Mr. Nelson is Canada's foremost dramatist, is the
pioneer producer of palatable entertainment of the educational and highly moral
ssrt, and is perhaps the only star who has
the advancement of things theatrical in
this seAion really at heart. -Thia was
demonstrated when he closed his run of
unprecedented success on'August 1st at
the Beck Theatre, Bellingham.
The Beck Theatre, Bellingham, and the
Garrick Theatre, San Francisco, have been
put at Mr. Nelson's disposal as producing
houses, and: at high admission prices his
efforts have'won favor and'unlimited engagements. . Despite 'these these allurements, he has induced his manager, Mr.
G. G; Garrette, to arrange his time so as
to-admit of the preterit tour.  A '
"Pierre of the PlainSs" is Mr, Nelson's
masterpiece. It deals, with the stirring
scenes on the bolder in the days of the
early settlers. Pierre, played by Mr. Nelson, is a " breed" who haa been much
maligned irr the eyes of Jen, the daughter
of a road house keeper. He loves the girl
devotedly without telling her until he has
proved his courtage in a tragedy which
serves as a thrilling climax. The end is a
happy one for All concerned.
In the excellent supporting company,
Miss Grace-Johnson, the beautiful young
San Francisco leading lady heads the feminine contingent with a delineation of Jen

Railways Dispute Over
There is a dispute impending
between the C. P. R. and the
C. N. R., involving the right of the
latter ..company to build its line
on a portion of the-right-of-way of
the C. P. R. on the shelving banks
of the Fraser and Thompson rivers.
The case will be heard before the
sitting of the railway commissioners
at Vancouver on September 5th.
The Canadian Pacific railway has
entered a general protest against,
the application of Messrs. Mackenzie and Mann for approval of
the Canadian Nor.hern railway
route at two different points. The
first is for a seven mile section on
the Thompson river, and the other
is for a ten mile stretch on the
Fraser. The Canadian Pacific objects to the proposed line parallelling its road bed.
Jn its bill of particulars the Canadian Pacific states in the first place
that there is not sufficient roomfor
the two parallel lines on the precipitous banks of the two rivers. It is
pointed that the building of the
Canadian Northern grade will
seriously menace the slopes of the
other company's road bed.and that
the older company, when removing
rock slides, will be compelled in
any event to dump rock and
boulders below into the tracks of
the oth^r road, there being no other
cheap method of getting rid ot the
hundreds of tons of rock that fall
at certain seasons of the .year.

Washington apricots....: s.1.00 to'1.25
Washington   peaches.    Early
Crawford     1,25 to 1.35
Washington peaches, Triumph 1.00
Washington apples, Alex'nd'r 2.00
Washington apples, Red  As-
trachan      2.25 to 2.50

Washington plums, peach or

California plums and prunes 1.75 to 2X0
Cali fornia pears, Bartlett......   3.00 to 3.50
B.C. blackberries, 2-5    2.75
B.C. cherries, 24 baskets, 4-5   4.25
To summarize, apricots are not
a heavy crop and rather under size
everywhere. B. C. should have no
trouble in marketing the crop at
fair prices in these markets. Avoid
selling too much in local markets,
as they have from some American
points a better rate into Vancouver
than from Okanagan Valley points.
On the other hand, peaches are a
good crop, and prices quoted from
American side 40, 45 and 50 cents
per case, for the different varieties
would indicate about 65, 70 and
75 c. on a commercial basis of
Oregon and Washington prices for
B. C. The other large fruits, apples,
crabs, pears, plums and prunes,
will probably rule firmer at fair
prir.es than indicated from first reports, although plums and prunes
are reported a heavy crop at some
American points. It is not safe to
speculate on price at present. The
latest reports from Ontario, re large
fruits, are favorable to B.C. Jobbers
and retailers here have been
thoroughly advised of our big crop,
and it is for the B. C. shippers now
to make good by placing themselves in touch at once with the
jobbers, retailers and consumers of
these markets by putting up a good
product and shipping promptly,
when ready, whatever they may
have to ship, at fair market prices.

Suggestion to Apple Shippers
A correspondent of the Fruitgrower describes» a somewhat
unique method of shipping apples
in car lots.       " *      \ •■ "
Have any of the shippers, of
Western apples he asks, tried the
following plan in loading cars with
fruit: put in about three inches of
oats in the bottom of the car, then
put in one tier of boxes, leaving
about three inches of space around
the outside, and about two inches
of space between the boxes; then
fill with oats again, and so ■ on until the car. is loaded. 1 shipped a
car of apples to Florida packed in
this way, and not a bruise could be
found on the apples more than
were on when shipped. The oats
settled down around the boxes and
kept them in perfect condition. I
sold, the oats upon arrival of the
shipment in Florida for . enough to
pay the freight and the cost of the
I put the oats around the apples
in thia way because I could not get
a refrigerator car, and they ^were
shipped in the winter. Protected
in this way, the fruit was not affected by the cold at this end of
the journey, nor by the heat at the
other end oi the line. They certainly held the fruit in fine condtiion.
