Westbank Passes Resolution.
Enthusiastic  Meeting
the Lake.
The question of the government
control of irrigation systems has
already aroused considerable interest on both sides oi the lake,
and an enthusiastic meeting, the
first of a series planned by the
special committee of the Kelowna
Farmers' Institute, took place Mon
day evening at Westbank. A party
consisting of Dr. Dickson,. Mr. M.
Hereron, and the secretary, Mr.
A. R Muirhead, crossed the lake
Monday afternoon to be present
at the meeting, which was held in
the school-house under the chairmanship of Mr. Robinson. There
was a large gathering of Westbank
farmers and fruit growers.
Dr. Dickson was the first speaker.
He outlined the movement which
had been started as a result of the
unsatisfactory state of irrigation in
this and other districts, and gave
a brief account of the proceedings
at the recent Irrigation Convention
at Kamloops, where a resolution
had been presented, and, though
in-a modified form, carried/asking
the government to take over the
irrigation water supply. He strongly urged that the,farmers ofthe
district should be united in this
matter, and go solidly in favor of
the government taking up the whole
problem and by means of dams
and reservoirs, conserving the water now going to waste and thus
being able to furnish &n adequate
supply. ;   i
He read over the resolution which
had been drawn up '"fay. the subcommittee of the Farmer's Institute
and which appears in another column asking the meeting to endorse
A good discussion followed,
mpst of the speakers being enthusiastically in favor of government
Mr. M. Hereron made some pointed remarks as to the unsatisfactory
working of the present system,
and Messrs. Blackwood (Westb'k),
C. Hitchner, Muirhead, Meurling,
Dundas, Marrin, DeLatour, and
others contributed to the discussion.
The resolution eventually received the unanimous endorsement of the meeting.
Mr, Dan McLean reports this
week a very substantial revenue
from some trees of his fine old orchard on the Vernon road. Nine
Red Astrachan trees averaged $20
per tree hot counting windfalls or
culls. .This is the kind of news we
like to hear about; it illustrates not
alone what can be done, but what
is being done in the district.
Taking fifty trees to the acre this
would give the handsome return of
$1000 per acre, for about an expenditure of two months labor ih
all in the year. *
Miss Annie Gay, of Rutland, entertained members of her Sunday
school class on Tuesday afternoon.
Although the weather was cool, the
youngsters managed to enjoy themselves thoroughly and developed
good appetites by supper time.
15 scholars with their teacher were
photographed during the afternoon
by Mr. Gray.
Miss P. Louise Adams, A.T.C.M.
returned Thursday from her holiday
trip t° , the coast. She will be
pleased to meet any of her old
music pupils, and any others desirous of taking lessons on the piano,
at her studio as early as possible
so that lessons can be arranged
before September. An examiner
from the Toronto Conservatory of
Music is expected here next summer, and any who wish to enter for
the examination should begin their
studies immediately.
School opens on Monday, 29th.
An effort was made to obtain an
extension of time for the finishing
of the new school, but this has not
bcwi found powibl*.
Infected Fruit Must Not
Be Offered For Sale.
" Infected home-grown fruit will
not be permitted to be sold this
year. The regulations governing
the same will be strictly enforced."
This is the dictum of Mr. Thomas
Cunningham, provincial inspector
of fruit pests. It was given to The
Province in order that the inform^
ation may be spread among fiuit
growers in all parts of the province.
" After all the education that has
been given to the people in regard
the importance of spraying, and all
the assistance that has been given
to fruit growers, it is unreasonable
to expect that growers who neglect
the care of their trees will be permitted to put infected fruit on the
market to break down the price of
fruit produced by careful growers,"
continued Mr. Cunningham.
" The design of this strict enforcement of the regulations is to force
the . growers to adopt up^to-date
methods, increase their revenue
and keep up the splendid reputation
which this province has already
obtained for its fruit. It is the intention of the department to make
spraying compulsory as soon as the
trees have become dprmant this
fall. There will be no exception
to the rule. Fruit growing land in
British Columbia has become so
valuable that it can no longer be
permitted to be encumbered with
with diseased and infected trees.
We owe it to ourselves to make the
best possible use of every acre of
land in British Columbia and we
owe it to the industrious and enterprising grower to protect him from
the carelessness and indifference of
his neighbors who may neglect the
proper care of their treea. ,,
"Showing the necessity of the
'protection which is- accorded the
fruit growing industry of British
Columbia, I wish to state that no
less than 61 shipments of American
fruit have been condemned in
Vancouver since July 1. This shows
it is up to our own people to put
none but goody fruit on the market. A       ,     -'_". 'A,'
"There will be a very fair crop
throughout the province of British
Columbia this season. It is probable
that the entire crop will be three
times as large as that of any in the
history of the province. It is expected that 1000 carloads of fruit
will be shipped out of the Okanagan Valley alone. The reports of
conditions in the Kootenay are
exceedingly favorable. On the
lower mainland the yield will be
better than the average and the
same applies to Vancouver Island.
It will be readily seen, therefore,
on the. whole, compared with pur
friends in the east, British Columbia
is greatly favored this year. Where
the orchards .have been carefully
sprayed the fruit bids fair to be
excellent quality, but in orchards
which have been neglected a great
deal of fruit will be unfit for
Next Thursday, Sept. I st, Mrs.
Campbell is to give a tea in connection with the Ladies' Hospital
Aid, at their Sunniside Ranch, at
Westbank. Tea will be served at
4:30. Mr. Campbell has kindly
consented to convey visitors over
in his launch starting from Kelowna
at 1:45 p.m. and again at 3 p.m.
A charge of 25 cents is made for
return trip on the lake and 15 cents
for tea. Come along and help
the Hospital.
Mr. Geo. Whelan met with a
nasty accident whilsjt driving Sunday last. Meeting an auto in an
awkward place near the five bridges
and with a.nervous horse, he was
thrown clear out of the rig, alighting upon his head. He was. a
heavy man, and received a fearful
jarring, his head also being severe,
ly cut. After being, attended attended to. by a medical man, a
few days rest fortunately saw him
over the worst of it.
Mr. R. E. Harriss and family returned Tuesday from their long
holiday in Trinidad, They were
accompanied by two dusky native,
servants whom they have brought
with them from their West Indian
| horn*. .
City Council
Insanitary Conditions in Chinatown Again Brought Up.
A meeting of the city council was
held last Saturday; evening, the
Mayor, Aid. Leckie, Harvey and
Cox being present.
The minutes of last meeting
having been read and adopted, the
following accounts were referred
to the finance committee, to be
paid if found correct:
John Laidlaw, work in park... $ 41 70
Water" Works ' paysheet   for    two
weeks, ending Aug.' 13..........».•• 143 94
The following motion was passed : " That the assessment on blocks
15 and 5 Nfqr cement sidewalks be
reduced to a point in line with
actual cost of same, viz : from 37c.
to 29c. per foot front"
Mr. G. C. Rose, who was present,
drew the attention of the. council
to the fact that he was still assessed
for the wooden sidewalk which
had s'nce been replaced by a
cement one. The sidewalk t in
question had been removed"by the
council and made use of some-
where else. He therefore asked
for the assessment to be . removed
too. '
The following motion was accordingly passed : " That G. C.
Rose be given a rebate of $5.20
on account of assessment for plank
sidewalk in front of Lot I, block
13." ■■
•A letter was read from Messrs.
W. A. McKenzie & Co.,of Toronto,
the purchasers of debentures issued
under the Water Works Extension
By-law, asking that the tinie.in
which they could take delivery of
the bondd should be extended
thirty days.   This was granted.   .
Aid. Harvey reported that he
had had a man at work cutting
weeds on the streets, and that most
of the work had been done.
Aid. Leckie drew attention to
certain insanitary and unsightly
buildings in Chinatown and asked
if nothing could be done to have
them removed.
Aid. Cox said (hat the matter
had been gone into last year along
with the health officer. He said,
however, that they would visit the
place again and see if anything
could be.done.
By-law No. 80, which strikes the
rate of taxation for the year at a
total of 23£ mills was reconsidered
and finally passed.
The meeting then adjourned
until Monday, Aug. 29, at 8 p.m

The Park.
The union Sunday School picnic
held in the park last Thursday afternoon was pronounced a great
success. A large crowd of children and adults thronged the park.
Mr. F. R. E. DeHart, who is never
so happy as when helping others
to enjoy themselves, had his motor
launch busy all the afternoon carrying parties of delighted youngster.
The children's sports, too, were
great events, and a long programu.e
of running, jumping, potato races,
and the like, excited unbounded
juvenile enthusiasm. And then the
bathing 1 How they must have

Then along came Mr. Gurts with
three rolls of building paper, which
original table clotha^were .spread
in long lines on the grass.A Never
did the finest linen hold such a
feast. Between four and five
hundred people must have sat
down to the tab—er—building paper. And they cleared that spread
in fine shape. ,
After supper the gathering gradually dispersed, feeling that they
had had a glorious time right here
at home, without the trouble and
expense of making a long journey.
Mr. and Mrs. Downing, who have
been spending a few weeks at
th« noait, returned Tt_«»day Inst.
At the last general meeting of
the Farmer's Institute a special
committee consisting of representatives from each district around
Kelowna, was appointed to formulate a plap of action in the movement to induce the government to
take over the irrigation system.
This committee held its first meeting last Saturday in Raymer's Hall.
There was a good attendance
most of the .delegates appointed
being present. The first step in
the campaign it was felt, should be
to place the matter before the farmers in the district and to get as far
as possible the support and signature of everyone behind the resolution. It was decided to hold meetings in every district at which the
question could be thoroughly discussed and a resolution pre ented
for endorsment.
A long discussion then took
place as to the exact form which the
petition should take. To a subcommittee of four, consisting of
Dr. Dickson, Mr. Pridham, Mt.
Smith, and Mr. D. W. Sutherland
was eventually delegated the task
of drawing up the following resolution which.,will be presented at
each of the meeting as arranged:
" Whereas the existing conditions
in connection with the control and
distribution of the water for irrigation, purposes are far from satisfactory, in certain . districts of
British Columbia, resulting in excessive waste, inadequate supply
and inequitable distribution,' often
leading to costly litigation, and
whereas large tracts of land remain
undeveloped in consequence.of the
lack of systematic conservation, be
it-resolved that we, the land holders
of the Okanagan District, respectfully request that the Government
of British Columbia take immediate
action with a view to solving the
problem, by introducing a system
of Government control, conservation, and operation of the water
supply for irrigation purposes, by
the construction of reservoirs and
distributing systems in this district."
Meetings were arranged to be
held at the following places: Monday; Aug. 22nd, at Westbank;
Rutland, Saturday, Aug. 27th, at
8:30 p.m. in thepublichall; Ellison,
Tuesday, Aug. 30th at 7:30 p.m.,in
the s'chqolhouse; South Okanagan,
on Wednesday Aug. 31 st, at 7:30
p.m., in tha schoolhouse ; Benvoulin,Thursday/ September 1st, at
7(30 p.m., in the schoolliouse; K.
L.O., Friday, September 2nd, at
7.30 p.m., in Mr. Allan's house.
It was decided that the appointed
delegates from each district were
tp take charge of the arrangements
for the meeting in their particular
district, and it was left with the secretary tb have notices printed which
could be forwarded to them for
posting in conspicuous places announcing the time and place of
such meetings.
Wedding Bells
St., Michael and- all Angel's
church has been the scene of two
interesting weddings within the
Inst week. The first was on Thursday.afternoon last, at 1:30, when
Oliver Dendy was married to Mary
Annette Hewison. ' Mr. Arnold H,
S. Etrington acted as best man, and
the; bride was given away by Mr.
E. M. Carruthers. '
On Wednesday morning at 7:30
a.m. the marriage took place of
Alan William Russell Cowan to
Miss Emily Harris Goatling. The
best man was Mr. Humphrey Bradford, the bride being given away
by Mr. Percival DeLatour. The
happy, pair left by the boat for Salmon Arm, where they are making
their future home.
The officiating clergyman in both
cA_ea was the Rev. T. Greene, B.A.

Okanagan Fruit to be
Displayed at Winnipeg
British Columbia's fine fruit which
has been too little known heretofore
to be properly appreciated in the
East, will, beginning this fall be exhibited annually in Winnipeg
through the efforts of the Okanagan
Fruit Union and the Canadian Pacific railway. Arrangments have
been completed, according to the
advice from Mr. W. B. Lanigan of
the CP.R. to have the T. Eaton
Company give its fourteen large
show windows on Portage avenue,
the principal business street of
Winnipeg, for two days in September for a display of a car of the
finest peaches grown in the Okanagan Fruit Union, again about the
first of November, for an exhibition
of British Columbia apples.
For a week or more prior to these
two displays, the T.Eaton Company
will feature them, and it is expected
thatthe large crowds which will daily flock to this store will be made acquainted with the size and flavor
and high quality of the British Columbia orchard products, thereby
creating -demand in the Winnipeg
market which will eventually lead
to their discriminating buyers calling for fruit grown in British Columbia.
This year the exhibit will be confined to.the Okanagan country, but
next fall a larger and better exhibit
will be held which will include the
fruits from other parts of the province also. '
Heretofore the Winnipeg fruit
consumer has known but little about
the magnificent fruit grown in this
part of the Dominion. He has got
the idea that it is more or less like
the fruit of California, and that it is
not to be compared with that grown
in.-Ontario. Asa matter of fact;-
however, the peaches .and apples
grown in British Columbia are declared hy competent judges to be
superior not only in quality to the
Ontario product, but also in size
and keeping quality.
The promoters of these Winnipeg
displays believe that they; will be
just the thing by which to get before
the people of that section the information which they should have. In
connection with the displays there
will be snitable decorations, with
views of British Columbia orchards
where the peaches and apples are
grown, and other interesting scenery. The fruit will be given away
as samples or sold at cost, and the
two carloads will likely reach the
largest number of people.—Daily
More Complaints of
Kelowna Will Send Exhibit
to New Westminster
The A. & T, Association has.
again decided to enter the lists at
the New Westminster fair, which is
to be held early in October. Encouraged by the brilliant success of
last year, the Association are bent
on beating their own record, and
indeed, the chances for getting
together a magnificent display of
apples are greater than ever.
A sub-committee, consisting of
Messrs. B. McDonald, A. E. Boyer
andT. Hill were recently appointed
to go into the matter, and it has
been decided that in addition to
the various classes entered last year,
a special effort will be made to pull
off the much coverted District Fruit
The directors have decided to
place the whole charge of the exhibit in the able hands of Mr. A.
E. Boyer, and with characteristic
energy, he is already getting busy
making arrangements for the
collecting together of the specimens
suitable for display, and is ready to
see that each one gets full credit
for his contribution.
The steady growth of Messrs.
Rowcliffe Bros, connection as a
packing and shipping house for all
kinds of vegetable and orchard products has necessitated their removal to larger and more convenient
premises. They have rented the
building formerly occupied by the
Canning Company, and are now
up to the neck in early apples, po-
[tatoe*, and oth«r produce.
Following are some of the more
important matters dealt with :
Winnipeg, Aug. 9. I find jobbers
here quite ready to buy B. C. fruit
if assured as to obtaining it, after
ordering on date required. The
demand is good and prices are
firmer for all varieties of fruits.
Quotations for peaches, plums and
prunes aire ruling higher from the
American side. The supply of
apricots is practically ovei from
American points. California
peaches costing $1.15 laid do'vn,
Winnipeg, selling retailers to-day
$1.25 per case. Jobbers stating
they would prefer to buy B. C.
peaches quoted them, as profits
would be larger than on the California product and that's the point
considered by them always.
Quotations from private sources
and fruit distributing houses on the
American side report all fruits
fairer and higher. Jobbers here are
not looking for so low prices this
season, as the earlier reports of,
crops and quotations indicated.
Prices for fruit in Chicago and
eastern States markets are high at
this time in comparison with former
seasons. These markets are supplied from the south at this season
of the year, but now, practically
none coming in, creating an increased demand for Pacific Coast
States fruit at higher prices.
B. C. blackberries arriving in excellent condition, but in limited
quantises, selling at $3.75,.per,,case
of 24 baskets, 2-5 size. Rogers
& Co., jobbers here, Winnipeg,
stated they had 10 carloads of fruit
rolling into Winnipeg at present
date. Vipond & Co., jobbers here,
reported 5 cars of American mixed
fruits rolling in at present time.
Another auction mart has just
been opened here. First carload
of fruit from Ontario will be
auctioned off tomorrow, containing
tomatoes and early apples. Jobbers
here are reported to hold stock and
control it. They stated it was
started with the idea of preventing
fruit from being sold too low or at
slaughtered prices, as was being
done at present time by auction,
injuring the sale of fruit by jobbers
at jobbing prices. It would also be
run in a measure, as a clearing
house for the fruit jobbers.
Regina, Aug. 10. Blackberries
arriving here in very limited quantities, but in excellent conditon.
Jobbers are desirous of buying B. C. :
peaches, but afraid to order because of uncertaintv of obtaining-.,
on date ordered. Allow prices
are firmer for peaches and plums
from American points. Growers
and shippers in B. C. now, should
be able to assure jobbers as to date
of shipping and keep track of cars
Saskatoon, Aug. 11. 1 saw a car
of mixed fruits to-day from Vernon,
B. C. at the Northern Fruit Co's
siding, shipped Aug. 3, arrived on
the 11 th. Eight days in transit.
Peaches were ripe, but good.
Apples good. Peaches and plums
ripe, but good. Cucumbers too
ripe, yellow. Apricots too ripe.
Manager stated he would have to
job cots in town. Could not be
shipped out to rural points.
To-day, Aug. 13th, I examined
another car of mixed fruits and
vegetables (mainly potatoes) from
Vernon, B. C. to Currie Bros., here.
Shipped Aug. 5, arrived on 12th.
Seven days in transit. Mr. Logan,
manager of this firm, stated temp,
of this car waa .70 on opening it.
No ice in bunkers. Must certainly
have been neglected in transit as
to icing. Potatoes good. Apricots
total loss. Beans dry and mouldy.
Apples sound, but below grade. I
maty state the number of cases of
apricots and beans were few in car,
therefore loss was not great
Growers and shippers are evidently letting peaches and apricots
ripen too much on tree before
picking and shipping. Shippers
must insist on Transportation Co..

First and La.st Drinks
A man haggard,wretched.with handcuffs
on his wrists, cowering in a patrol wagon
among degraded fellow prisoners, looked
up as the wagon passed a famous hotel,
whose luxurious bar was the resort of the
guilded youth of the town. "That," he said
in a tone as if going back over all his life
to the time when his downfall began, "that
was where 1 took my first drink."
A battered tramp beside him answered
hoarsely. "I took mine in a speak-easy,"
he said. "We didn't start alike, but when
we get to our last drink, it'll all be the
same—cheap whisky and the gutter and
the morgue for both of us." |
Money and the Traffic.
There must be a great deal of money
made out of the traffic in strong drink. It
is made chiefly by two classes, those who
manufacture it and those who sell it. The
former were the less numerous of the two
classes, but they get large wealth. The
latter may not make so great fortunes but
they are more numerous.
. It takes a large amount of money to keep
these two classes supplied. The annual cost
of the alcoholic liquor consumed by the64,-'
000.000 people of Germany is estimated to
be $715,000,000 more than twice the con-
bined cost of the Army and Navy. And yet
we read of countries groaning under the
burden of militarism. It is nothing to the
burden of alcoholism.
And all this money, in Germany, Britain,
Canada, is paid by the men who drink the
liquor. Much of it can ill be spared. Much
of it is taken from the needs of their own
families. Some of it is given when the
children are crying for bread and the wife
toils in rags.
Furthur, those who give the money get
nothing for it but that which injures them,
something which they would be better
And still a_other wonder, all this is done
voluntarily. When a much smaller amount
is exacted by government, in taxes for the
general good, what an outcry is sometimes
raised I But here it is voluntarily given,
when the only thing given in return is injury to themselves, physically, mentally and
morally, and injury to their families as well.
The wonder of it all I
What a grip the thing must have upon
men when they do all  this,   under  these
And their is still another wonder: that
the men and women ina comunity who are
not thus in bondage do not keep out of the
community a traffic which so enslaves and
hurts others, and which always claims its
percentage of the boys in every community

Several hundred pounds of
advertising matter was dumped
into Kelowna this week from
the big Winnipeg mail order
house. Evidently one firm
knows that money spent in advertising returns again many
times. It is puzzling how the
kind of goods usually sent out
by the mail order man can be
regularly palmed onto people
simply by the help of a startling,
enticing cover, and a lot of
pictures. The mail order business is steadily pushing west,
and growing from year to year,
and he must be met on his
own ground — a reasonable
profit and systematic advertising. This will reach the buyers
when ' appeals tp citizenship
fall flat and dead. Whatever
may have been the state of
affarrs in the past, transportation
facilities, better service and
general substantial progress in
Kelowna has built up many
wide-awake progressive business firms, who are out after
business, and after it all the
time, and it does not take many
experiments tof convince the
man with a fair share of common-sense that he had better
have kept his money at home.

Local fruit growers are keeping the ball rolling which was
set in motion at the Irrigation
Convention recently. The
desire for government contral
of irrigation systems has taken
ffrm hold in this district at
least, and judging by the determined efforts of representatives of the Kelowna
Farmers' Institute, the time may
not be far distant when the
much needed reforms in the
handling df the life-giving
streams will be an accomplish
ed fact. The meetings, advertised elsewhere, should do a

News of the Valley.
The Penticton Sunday school
picnic to Kelowna has had to be
abandoned, owing to the inability
of the officials to secure the services
of the ss. Aberdeen.
Penticton is to have an Aquatic
Club. This was decided upon at a
meeting held last week. The new
club is to.be organized on similar
lines as the Kelowna association,
witn an initial capital of $10,000.
A pavilion and club house is to be
erected. "1 think by next year we
will have one the best aquatic associations on the lake," said one
of the club's promoters enthusiastic
;.!Iy in discussing the proposition
with the editor of the Herald.
• " There have been a great many
people, especially, of course, among
the young men of the town, agita
l;ng for such a club, and these will,
Athout doubt,, take one or more
shares in the concern. We should
have some war canoe crews entered all along the line next season.
In sculling events the Penticton
club will probably have the services
■of Mr. Frederick T. H. Eyre who
was coxswain of the Oxford eight
: >me years ago, and had a splendid experience at Henley. There
are also a numter of men in town
who can be relied upon to pull an
car or bend a paddle with the best
of the material produced in other
towns in the Okanagan."
On account of the C.P.R. not
being able to furnish excursion
boats for the Naiamata regatta
owing to the heavy fruit crop on
the lake, the committee have been
compelled to call off the event which
was advertised to take place on
_;2ptember 5th.
Another victim. Jack Jones, conductor of the C. P. R. freight train,
was drowned in Mara lake last
Friday, while enjoying a dip when
tii2 sun was hot. The train crew
were in the water but a few
minutes, when it was discovered
that Jones had disappeared. The
i est of the men were strong swimmers, and struck out for deep
water. The conductor could not
Gwim, and remained in shallow
water. He must have stepped off
a ledge into deep water, and
immediately went under, Jqr he
made no sound to  attract the at
tention of the other swimmers, and
they did not know anything had
happened him until they came
ashore and found his clothes where
he had left them. They began to
search for him, but it was two
hours later before his body was
discovered in deep water near the
shore. Mr. Jones was a young man
of splendid qualities. He was
stationed at Field when Mr. Bum-
ham, Enderby agent, was there, and
was thought a great deal of by all
the railroad men. He leaves a
wife nnd child, who are visiting in
the east.—Enderby Press.
One of the saddest accidents that
Penticton has known occurred on
Thursday afternoon when little
Tommy Muir, the son of Mr. S. A,
Muir.a Vernon chemist, was drowned off the C.P.R. wharf. His body
was found about 5.30 p.m. by a
commercial traveller who chanced
to walk down the wharf. It was
submerged in five feet of water.
Early in the afternoon Tommy, his
brother Arthur and another lad
went to the wharf to fish. The
other two subsequently went away
leaving Tommj' alone. In some
way he slipped off the wharf into
the water. There was nobody
around at the time, and the boy's
disappeaiance was not noted until
his companions returned. Dr. R.
B. White was immediately summoned, but all efforts at resusiation
were vain. The body had evidently
been some time in the water. Tommy and his brother, Arthur, were
visiting their uncle, Mr. B. A. Shat-
ford, brother of Mr. W. T. Shatford
and Mr. L. W. Shatford, M.L.A. for
Similkameen. The body was taken
to Vernon for burial.—Penticton
Mr. Thacker, of Westbank, is experimenting this year with a new
forage and fodder plant named
"hilianti" which has been grown
with much success in England,
France and Algeria. The leaves produce a crop double in quantity to
alfalfa, while the tubers are excellent food for cattle, containing a
large percentage of sugar. Mr.
Thacker imported a quantity of the
tubers this spring from England.and
although they were three months on j
the road, and arrived in very poor
condition he has raised a splendid
crop. The plant will stand any,
amount of frost, and Mr. Thacker
thinks it would prove a valuable
addition to the forage plants of the

"Whereas the existing conditions in connection with the control and distribution

in British   Columbia,   resulting in  excessive waste,  inadequate supply*  and
inequitable distribution, often leading to costly litigation:
"And whereas large tracts of land remain undeveloped, in consequence of the
lack of systematic conservation:
"Be it resolved that we, the land holders of the- Okanagan District respectfully
request that the Government of British Columbia take immediate action witH a
view to solving the problem by introducing a system of Government Control,
Conservation, and Operation of the water. supply for irrigation purposes, by
construction of reservoirs and distributing systems in this district."

and retarding future development
in both of these provinces.   And
it is further the conviction of this
meeting that the time has now arrived when a substantial reduction
in rates should be effected, which
will not only be of the greatest importance and  benefit to the producers and  consumers   of   these
provinces, but to the railway companies as well."

Vancouver*'* Reception.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier must have
been deeply moved by the splendid character of the reception accorded to him at Vancouver on
Tuesday. The citizens of the Terminal City as a whole joined in the
welcome and it was one spontaneous outburst of enthusiasm for
Canada's leading citizen. Addresses
of welcome, entertainment of var-
kinds and a bumper public meeting comprised the program. In
the afternoon the premier formally
opened Vancouver first exhibition.
Victoria Enthused.
It is estimated that between ten
and tweiVc tuousanu people were
at the Parliament Buildings, Victoria, to catch a glimpse of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier as he passed from
his motor car to the scene of the
reception proper in the Assembly
Chamber, And of these thousands
it is safe to say that not one but
was agreed with all the rest that in
brilliance of effect, in artistic
character, and in whole-heartedness
the function was describeable only
as setting the mark of functions of
such character insofar at least as
Western Canada is concerned.
Vernon Will Celebrate.
Vernon is making elaborate preparations for the reception to-morrow. The streets will be decorated
and a triumphal arch erected.
A deputation from the Vernon
Liberal Association went out to
Sicamous on Manday to meet Sir
Wilfrid Laurier's party on their way
to the coast. They had a pleasant
interview with the premier, and
presented the party with a quantity

Metcalfe's Report
Continued from page I
examining cars in transit, and filling
bunkers with ice when cars require
it to prevent variation in temperature of car. Avoid filling cars too
full and brace securely to avoid
slurring of crates. Put apricots and
peaches near bunkers, apples to
the centre, in shipping mixed cars
of fruit. Keep track of cars rolling,
either from the shippers' point or
the point of destination, and be
able to divert in transit if cause
required it.
Altogether the tendency of markets for fruits of all kinds is higher
at present. Sell at reasonable
prices and avoid consignments as
these are the shipments on which
markets are demoralized.

Dominion Botanist
Visits Kelowna
H. T. Gussow, Dominion botanist, who is making a tour of inspection through the province, paid the
district a visit on Mondav last, and
in company with Mr. LeRoyDolsen,
went up to Rutland and gave a
short practical talk to about fifteen
of the neighboring fruit-growers.
The information given was much
appreciated, and many important
pointers were taken away. Only
a short notice had been given or
more would have turned out. Mr.
Gussow had intended leaving
earlier, but was persuaded by Mr.
Dolsen to give us the benefit of his
wide and varied studies and ex
perience ih fruit culture.
Mr. Wray, of Benvoulin, brought
samples of apples showing roughness on the calyx end. Mr. Gussow explained that this was due to
injury of the blossom by frost, the
crack which sometimes takes place
then becoming infested with fungus of various kinds. Frost seemed
to be the only enemy in the district
of any account, showing itself in
many ways, especially in immature
trees. He advised that great care
be exercised in the fall to properly
mature all new wood before winter, but to let the trees go into frost
in a moist condition rather than
too dry. Mr. Gussow strongly advocated spraying lime-sulphur as
soon as the leaves fall, and again
in spring, adding Jib. powder (31b.
paste) arsenate of lead to 50 gals,
of the diluted Bordeaux for the
third spraying as soon as the leaves
are out.
Mr. Wilson, provincial fruit inspector, accompanied Mr. Gussow,
who later gave a short talk on fruit
culture in the Bankhead orchard,
leaving by Tuesday's boat.
