CANNOT FILL ORDERS
STATEMENTS/   AS    TO    LACK    OF
MARKETS WERE OVERDRAWN.
(Special Despatch to The Globe.)
Montreal, Sept. 16.—In view of
statements that Okanagan fruit-growers were unable to market peaches
this, year, the C.P.R. arranged with
Baton's store, the largest in Winnipeg, to hold a special sale of any
quantity up to ten thousand cases,
and quoted a low rate for shipment.
The Okanagan United Fruit-growers
have wired their thanks, but state
they are unable to fill present orders.
.The Penticton Board of Trade also
wired that a fair market is being
found for peaches, and that the situation is much exaggerated. The Penticton Fruit-growers' Union has been
shipping all the yellowstones and
early Crawfords offered, and finds a
ready market. The local cannery expects to be able to handle all the Al-
bertas when they are offered. At Vernon, some peaches are rotting, but
only because they are in orchards
which have not been properly thinned, and therefore are too small to
be worth packing. Any waste at
Kelowna is attributed to careless
growers, who have poor fruit through
insufficient attention to their trees.
Pears this year are somewhat scarce,
but the plum crop is magnificent, and
the apples are shaping up finely.
