^ head- ot   the movement in  B.C.,-
.spent   last   week-end    in    tow.n,
preaching at various churches in
the neighbourhood.

Methodist   Church,   which   Commenced at 9.30, "was presided over
by the  I^v. j. R D. Knox; of

DivSpencer was the first speaker, and gave an exhaustive report
.'"^ of Jthe work of -the League iiirthe
7'province; during the yedr_    This
.was followed by reports from the
various local leagues.   :        *
At the conclusion of the reports
the Rev.Jonh Robson,.of Vernon,
delivered an address commenting
upon the progress which had been
m&de, and indicating the lessons to
be learnt from the reports.   .
The Rev. F. W.-Hardy and the
Rev. James Hood, of Summerland,
spoke   on    " Methodsf of   Work
Amongst   the  Young," addresses
which were followed by interesting discussion.        . 7 77
& -The .electionof• bfficSrr*fp'ir. the
ensuing year closed the- business.
.Mr. A. L. Fortune, • Qf Enderby,
was elected hon. president;   Mr.
,C. S. Stevens, Summerland, president;   Mr.   Harris,   of   Kaleden,
'secretary; and Mr. J. Ball, Kelowna,
In; the afternoon the Rev. E. B.
Glass took the chair and papers
' were read by Mr. C. S. Stevens, on
"The- Right of Self-GoVernment
re the Liquor Traffic," and by the
Rev.D. J. Welsh on "The Forward Movement in Temperance
and Moral Reform. •   '
Discussions followed, after which
the report of the resolutions committee was taken up.
In the evening a largely-attended
meeting was held in the Presbyterian Church.
Dr. Archibald, of Kamloops,
dealt with the effects of the continued use of alcohol from a medical stand point. Alcohol was not
needed by the human system, and
its use Was not only superfluous
. but distinctly detrimental. Taken
in excess it brought about a peculiar
condition of the stomach, and congestion and enlargement of the
liver. Finally the nerves and brain
were affected, causing the terrible
delirium tremens in which the
strangest hallucinations took possession of the victim's mind.
Not all drinkers, however, went
to these extremes. The vast majority took, say, one, five, ten, or up
to twenty drinks per day, this going
on for possibly a number of years
until one was surprised how well
they stood it. But let one of these
habitual tipplers catch a cold or a
slight illness, and their lives went,
out like a candle ih a gust of wind.
The steady drinker, through a
weakened system was most liable
to contract disease, and when contracted least able to throw it off.
The speaker also dealt with the
disastrous effects of alcoholism
which were transmitted to the children, quoting eminent medical
authorities to prove that .an enormous percentage of the children
of drunken parents were physically
or mentally inpaired in some way.
The day was not far past when
the question of temperanc had been
wholly within the church, and
even there had been differences
of opinion. It would not be long
however, before the whdle medical profession would:, stand, side
by side with the church and, ihe
legislature in combatting this evil.
The Rev. G. G> Fallis of Penticton was the next speaker. He toblt
as hia subject "EnthusW in Tern
needed was a divine zeal, a burn'
ing passion which would carry
them through to the attainment of
their purpose, which at present
was Local Option law for the province. There was a great difference
however, between real , enthusiam
which came form deep'conviction,
and the, blind 'fanaticism'from
-which the temperance cause had
sugered so much in-the past.' This
fanaticism was not needed.and only put shame on temperance work.
There would be a hard fight to
win in B. C. before they got the
I__ocal Option law. They had failed
for a time through bigotry and prejudice, but they did .not intend to
give in.. The Attorney-General
and his supporters were taking
credit to themselves just now for
having given the people an act
which would solve the problem.
It was a- false hope, and merely a
sop which had been handed put to
them. Many temperance workers
were in danger of losing their enthusiasm because they thought they
had a law which would regulate
the . traffic. But it could hot be
done. The liquor traffic .could
never be regulated into decency.
Nothing but complete anniliation
should satisfy them. He urged his
hearers hot to lose their enthusiasm until they hgd a Locat Option
Law. "Their aim was prohibition
for the stall and total abstinence
for the individual.    "    '77 7
Ih conclusion he made -an eloquent appeal for assistance in stopping the traffic which was claiming
so many of the brightest boys and
pr. Sawyer, principal of Summer-
land College, said the Temperance
cause was no longer a question for
old men and old women; it was
one of the livest and greatest
questions of the day. The subject
of his address was "Money and
Men." What was money ? It was
what some men would give their
lives and souls for apparently. But
money was useless without men.
With money great things could be
accomplished. It was producing
marvellous changes in this Western
country. That wais money well
invested. There were all kinds of
men, but the ones who should get
linked up with money were the
men of noble purpose and uprightness of character. Such men were
needed most in the Temperance
cause—then money.
Dr. Spencer, who "was received
With SppiSUSc, oSiu lie Woo glfiu to
have had the opportunity of. visiting the Valley. He believed the
convention would do a great deal
of good in the district. He was
looking to the Okanagan, to set
an example to the province. We
had here a beautiful vallev with a
good class of people as settlers,
and more coming ih, and with few
licenses. But the Okanagan would
have to do its share in the battle
with other places where the liquor
traffic waa more firmly entrenched.
The speaker then sketched
briefly the progress which had
been made by the Temperance
movement during the last few years.
There were already ten states of
the Union tinder prohibition. Tin's
had not been accomplished at
once, but had taken long years of
hard work to bring about. Besides
these ten states there were also
large areas under Local Option.
It was estimated that at the present time thete were at least
45,000,000 under prohibition or
Local Option. Some placed ihe
figures at 55,000,000. All this had
come to pass by steady educational
influence along Temperance lines.
In B.C. they were, confronted
with a strongly entrenched liquor
traffic, but they must learn a lesson
from the Eastern provinces, and
by copying the splendid example
set and addjhg the vigorous
Western spirit, fthey would ^g§t
there ;'ii}> time. " A few short years
ago airbver Pfince Edward Island
were   grog .shops .and drunkeiW
perance work." 1? What the cauae^jne**.'*. People began tp feel that it
was a bad thing, and now the task
has been accomplished and Prince
Edward Island is clean. In Charlottetown the police force has
been reduced from 16 to 6. . The
people show, the visitor a dilapidated building with ,. windows
broken, and tell him that is the
jail! There are no prisoners now
because the liquor traffic has been
done away with. It was a lie that
more liquor was sold under prohibition than before. If that were so
the brewers should pay' the -x"
penses of their prohibition campaign and increase their business.
- Nova Scotia would very soon be
white and New Brunswick was
already two-thirds whife. There
was. county after county without
a bar, and a strong tendency all
over the province ■ towards pro'
hibition. The same was noticeable in Quebec, which, with all
its superstitions was largely white.
Montreal had recently reduced its
licenses by ^0. The Quebec
government had brought in one
measure and were bringing in
another to facilitate Temperance.
Ontario a short time back had
$.000: licenses, .Now, with .nearly
double the population there are
only 2,000. s There had been early
difficulties, but these had, been
gradually overcome, and now more
than half the.municipalities ih the
province were .white. Saskatchewan and Alberta were" setting a
splendid example, and making
great headway.
■ East of the Rockies great areas
could now be painted. white, and
these areas were constantly increasing, and eventually those provinces would be clean. The bar,
brothel and gambling den generally went together, and the liquor
traffic was at the bottom of it all. •.
What they were at present concerned with, continued Dr. Spencer,
was to make B.C. a " white" province. In many- respects this
province of ours was the most
beautiful of all. Its; climate, its
forests, its fisheries, its rivers and
lakes, and its rich farm lands,
make.it the most attractive of all
the provinces.
People were coming iri from
.everywhere, bringing their vices
and their virtues together. They
were the people who'would make
the province, and it was up to us
all {to say what it would become
How . much of the province
could, at present be painted white ?
How much was free from the
liquor traffic? Not one fifteenth
part There were over 800 licenses
the   province. •' The   greatest
could not be made to pay its way.
He was of opinion that it could be
made a profitable concern if managed in the right way, and instanced
several cases of hotels without
licenses, in which he had stayed,
which were returning considerable
profits for the proprietors. There
were thousands of such in Canada
and the States from which men
had retired with fortunes. Personally he did hot want to stay at any
hotel where a bar was necessary
to pay for what he had to eat He
was willing to pay for what he got,
and he did not thank any hotel
man to tell him, he was being supplied with a meal at a loss.
Touching upon the- woman
suffrage question, he said he
believed the time was not far distant when the women would appeal
to the country for the right to vote.
They must work to get them on to
the voter's' list as. soon as they
could. ' ■   f
Dr. Spencer closed with an urgent appeal for unity and co-operation in the work of the League,
and ah enthusiasm and vigor
which wruld enable them to aci
complish their purpose. To do
this,, however, they would need
money, and he urged everyone
to help not only with their influence but with funds to carry
the work.

difficulty which .had to be contended with was the ignorance and
indifference of the people on this
great question.. The principal
reason why so many men were
not inline with-ihe movement was
because they were .afraid of the
effect which their professions of
Temperance would have upon
their business. If such had to converse with business men in the
prohibition states, they would soon
see that they were all wrong, and
that their fears were groundless.
It was part of the educational work
of their organization to get business men to realize that the liquor
traffic was not doing them or anyone else any good.
One of the hopeful aspects of
the tide of settlement into the province was that the men from the
prairies were almost always on the
side of prohibition. It was the
duty of the leagues to see that
these men were enlisted into their
ranks and so increase their
" By next session of the legislature," said Dr. Spencer," he
hoped they wbuld be prepared
with deputations to wait on the
government and  make strong re-
Iiresentations for favourable legis*
ation. They were not discouraged
by their want of success at Prince
Rupert and Chilliwack. He knew,
in fact, that a change had come
over Prince Rupert since the poll
was' taken, and things had been
accomplished which never would
have been possible before. The
same had taken place in Chilliwack,
where after the voting an applica*
tion for ahother licence had actually
been turned down.

statement that a Temperance hotel 16,'

announces series of supplementary
Farmers, Institute meetings, which
will be conducted'by Prof. R.  W.
Allen. Supt. of the Umatilla Irrigation experiment station at Hemmis-
ton, Ore.;*assisted by Mr. B.  Hoy,
Assistant horticulturist of Vernon.
It is the intention of the  department to make Prof. Allen's demonstrations in the application of water
practical, and adapted to local conditions.   ,P*of.  Allen   will; have
sufficient time to acquaint, himself
with the problems of each district,
and it is expected that much- good,
will accrue from his demonstrations
and the evening' meetings,  especially as there is great heed for practical information on this subject in
British Columbia, as in Oregon.*'
. These meetings will be  held  at
at Kelowna on the 12th, 13th, and
14th of July.     Although definite
arrangements can not be   announced until'next week it Is almost
certain that the first day's  demonstration on. the 12th  will  be  held
in some orchard close to town with
the evening meeting  in  Raymer's
Hall; on the 13that Rutland ; and
on the 14th at some place which
will give the residents of South
Okanagan and the K. L. O. bench
a chance to be present. . "t.
In each afternoon, Prof. Allen
will give a demonstration of the
relative advantages of deep , and
shallow furrows, and - the proper,
distances apart for furrows, the
percolation of water through'the
soil, and the economical application
of water. He will also discuss
many of the problems which come
with the distribution and use of
water. In the evening, Prof. Allen
will lecture on the broader pspects
of irrigation, particularilyTthe relation of irrigation water to soils,
and the problems of seepage, alkali,
etc. These lectures will be illustrated by lantern slides, showing
the application of water, by different methods, and general irrigation
scenes in Oregon. In the evening,
Mr. Hoy will also lecture on timely
cultural topics of orchards, including the use of cover crops, summer
pruning and the handlind of fruit.

The many people who came
into town last Saturday to attend
the performance of " The Importance of being Earnest," by the
Summerland Company,Were doomed to disappointment The engagement had been cancelled owing to a disagreement with the
local dramatic society regarding
loan of scenery. Mr. Wm. Sauter,

A committee meeting of the Dramatic
Society was hurriedly called, which decided that we could have the garden set at a

in connection with the scenery, but that a
courteous offer should suddenly be turned

after my decision to cancel the.date, waa,
hardly what I had anticipated. ',;

The Thinning of
Large Fruits
The removal of surplus fruits from
frUit trees is a matter of great importance, and is receiving more attention each year from the growers in B. C. On this account, some
general arguments in favor of the
practice, and some hints on methods, may prove of value, more
especially to beginners.
While the crop of tree fruits, as
a whole, is not heavy this year,
some trees are overladen, and there
are very few on which the fruit
could not be improved by judicious
thinning. The members of the B.
C. Fruit Growers' Association know
that the crops of Ontario, Nova
Scotia and all the Eastern and Central States, promise to be the largest in years, which means a great
bulk of No. 2 fruit on our markets
this season. In the season of 1910
the difference between the prices
of No. 1 and No. 2 fruit was not
great. This season, on the contrary, the higher grade fruit will
probably bring a much better price
and, in addition, will have a much
wider market and a keener demand.
On a medium or short crop, the
grower naturally wants all the possible returns for his fruit. When
he considers that the surplus, misshapen and diseased fruit on a tree
decreases the quality of the balance, he will see the urgent necessity
for the proper amount of thinning.
Winter pruning is in essence a
method of thinning. It can, however, never take the place of the
latter practice, and no grower has
a right to say that because of judicious winter pruning, thinning is
unnecessary. Every tree should
be inspected and, if necessary, the
fruit thinned.
The Reasons For Thinning Fruits."
1. From the standpoint of the
tree and the soil the great argument is that a crop of numerous
small apples has many more seeds
than the same weight of larger fruit.
It is the seed, and not the flesh of
the fruit which requires the concentrated plant food. A thousand
small apples make about double
the drain on plant food that five
hundred large ones do.
2. Trees judiciously thinned
tend lo bear moderate crops each
year. They do not degenerate into
bearing in alternate years, and trees
which have acquired this bad habit may be trained into more regular annual bearing by proper
3. The weight of fruit can be
distributed more evenly and more
towards the centre of the tree, enabling the tree to carry the fruit
more easly with less breakage of
branches from wind or from the
heavy load. It helps to make
props unnecessary.
4. The fruit is of higher quality
in the years of heavy crop, and in
years of a general light crop there
is a larger aauntity with quality, so
that in the average the growers receive a much higher net return
from the tree.
5. Thinning does not necessarily decrease the weight of fruit harvested. Usually the weight in any
one year is just as great as though
no thinning had been practiced.
Sometimes it is greater.
6. The removal of mis-shapen
apples and of all but one apple
from each cluster, diminishes the
percentage of culls.
7. The percentage of perfect
apples may be increased up to as
high as "99 per cent, and still a tree
may carry a full crop of them.
8. The fruit usually averages
higher in color, of a larger size,
more uniform and better in flavor
and keeping quality.
9. The cost of harvesting, handling, wrapping, and packing a box
of 96's is much less  than  that  of
188 s.
10. The grower reaps the
greater prices, and the greater profit
from selling the larger and better
grades of fruit. This will be especially marked in 191 1 and as competition for markets increases, this
benefit will become greater year
by year.
11. Both the individual grower
and the district gain in reputation
by the higher quality of the output.
This re-aCts in future seasons in a
wider market and still higher
In British Columbia there is probably no question but that in every
district, thinned fruit will give a
better profit'to the owner. The
objection that the labor for the purpose is expensive, is obviously a:
fallacy, as it cannot cost any more:
to pick an apple in June, than it
does in October. I
When to Thin
The proper time to thin large
fruits is the month of June and
early July. The thinning of pears
on Vancouver is done in May apd
early June. If the thinning of fruit
is left later than early July, the fruit
is much harder to remove, progress
is much slower, and much valuable
energy wasted by the tree.
How Much Thinning Should be Done
The above question is one depending upon many factors and
one to which no definite answer
can be given, but generally speaking, if the following principle is
kept in mind the grower is not
likely to go far wrong :--
Leave just as much fruit as the
tree can safely carry to perfection,
And at the same time retain vitality enough to develop a sufficient
number of strong fruit spurs for the
following season's crop.make sufficient wood growth for its age and
While experience is evidently
the chief factor in so deciding,
there are however, a number of
practical hints which will help to
secure good results.
1. Apples should generally be
thinned to about 6" apart on the
limb. Varieties which grow tp a
large size should be left farther
apart, while early varieties and
small growing kinds may be left
somewhat closer. This rule is not
altogether a safe one, as the opener
the tree is the closer the fruit may
(be left, and the denser the treethr
'farther apart fruits should remain.
2. The more rational method
is for the grower to decide for himself just what yield of fancy fruit
'the tree can carry in accordance
with the above rule. On the average, a well grown ten year old tree
should average eight boxes of No.
1 and fancy fruit. This equals-about 1,000 apples, and in thinning,
this estimate should be kept in
mind and can be followed, as .has
been found in practice, with astonishingly good results.
3. The first move in thinning
is to take off the deformed,, diseased and insect-infested fruit. Remove, in fact, anything which, from
its present appearance, cannot become a high class apple. .
4. Only one apple or pear
should be left on a fruit spur and
it is generally better to remove all
the fruit from each alternate spur.
Fruits hanging on the ends of slender branches rarely grow to a full.
size, and so should be removed.
In thinning summer and early fall
apples, one custom is to leave
about two to a spur at the time of
thinning and then remove one of
these in harvesting a crop of green
cooking apples in early August, the
other being removed with the full
crop a couple of weeks later.
5. Apple blossoms are born in
clusters, of which the central blossom opens first and produces the
largest apple. This central apple
is always more typical of the variety than are the outside <-nes. It
is usually superior in color, size,
and keeping quality as well, so
that as far as possible the centre
apple should be left.
6. Plums are usually thinned to
about two inches apart, though the
actual distance, as with apples, depends very much on the' variety
and district and must be decided
by the experience of the grower.
It is unnecessary to thin the Italian
prune, the Englebert and some
7. Cherries, Apricots, and Crab
Apples are seldom or never thinned.
The only apparatus required for
thinning is the customary fruit
picking ladder, a bag, if there are
any infested or diseased fruits to
gathered and destroyed, and a
pair of thinning scissors. Growers
differ as to whether the scissors
are a time saver, but a good pair
are excellent, especially with haTci
pulling varieties.

utmost satisfaction to ourselves and our customers:
Thomas Lawson, Limited,
Kelowna,  B.C.
Dear Sirs,- v
This Company, having recently had conferred upon it the
very high honor of appointment as Millers to His Majesty
King George V., has been commanded to make certain changes
in its brands to conform to the requirements of the Royal
Warrant, and in future the words
t <
will appear upon our brands instead of the Prince of Wales •
feathers and the former wording.
This distinction is the highest tribute that could
possibly be paid to the integrity of the Company and the
excellence of its products and a warrant to you and your
customers that our products will be maintained at the
highest possible standard.
We also beg to assure you that it is the unalterable
policy of the Directors and Management of the Company to use
nothing but the very best grade of our North-Western hard
wheats and to maintain its various plants at the very
highest state of efficiency necessary to insure the manufacture of nothing but the best and most uniforn flour.
Thanking you for past favours, We remain,
Yours truly,
(Signed) F. W. Thompson,
Vice-President and Managing Director.
