S3.25 E J. HILL COMPANY "We people in Lcthbridpc don't realixf: ulT we said Louis [nnni'i manager of the buthbri'lfcC hold, who owi-s a fruit farm on the Arrow Lakes. "We think conditions are bad here, but they arc far worse in British Columbia. There is no money in the province. Here in Alberta we'have ut least the prospect I of a big crop." I Asked to (Ififiiin the conditions in the interior oi British Columbia, Mr. ftipst declared that the fruit crop was well up to the .standard but that there was absolutely m> market for it and that much of the fruit was rotting on th'j strucs. "With the fanners of the prairie Inc problem is to jrroiv the crop the market is always there. With the farmers of British Columbia, there is no trouble getting a crop everything grows well, but there is no market, that is the most heart-breaking situ- ation possible, to have a splendid crop of fruit-and see it rot on the hushes for want oi a market." is it, ibat the fruit farmers of B. C, do not .seem able to compete successfully with those of Washing- ton Mr. Hapst was asked. "Because the freight rates are so high." >-'.'But'Washington is farther away than B. C. and Washington fruit must also pay a heavy duty amount- ing in some eases to "37 per cent." ''That is true. But the Washington fruitgrowers get a through rate to the markets of the prairie cities, and are able to undersell us in our own country simply on account' of lower freight rates. That means that the amount they save in freight pays for the duty provided that the cost of the fruit is the .same as that of the iruit in B. (_'. and the profit the same. But the cost is slightly lower while the profit' is a great deai less." "But can the American growers af- ford to sell fruit at such a small pro- fit "Yes, they can. By selling their N'o. 1 fruit 'in the States, they make a good profit.': Then they ship their second and third grades to Canada and are in a position to sell at a minimum pro tit, a prolit so small that they would not ho able to do business if they did not insure them- selves by selling their first class fruit in their own markets. Mr. Papst declares that it rained much more in the Columbia valley this year than it dirt here. The small fruit and hay .suffered from the ex- cessive moisture. Strawberries rot- ted on the plants and hay also rot- ted, while the water in the lakes was unusually high. Young orchards, how- a very fine growth and prospects are good -for next year if the market improves. Mr. Papst is buying fall-wheat and ryo to put on bis farm for chicken feed. GEO. KERR CO.

But while the railway interests ihz G T.P. aro at present almost en-j tirely in the north of the Mr. Donaldson paid a high tribute to this part 01 the country, and to i the magnificent crops that are being; cut. This is his first visit through i this portion of Alberta and he is im- mensely pleased with what he has seen, and somewhat taken aback at the size of the crops. Peace River Crops Speaking of railway construction in the north of the province, Mr. Donaldson stated that the 0. N. R. was doing some work, and that the McArtliur lines to the north-east and north-west of Edmonton were being pushed. The work on these lines had helped Edmonton city considerably siding over the crisis ot the unem- ployed. "Mr. Me Arthur' told me the othet day that he expected to handle two 'million bushels of'-grain on his line into Kdmonton from the Grande Prai- rie country.1' Mr. Doml.dson would not. state, in fact, saW'U- wajs dilHcuit to say just at present, .when" his company would Ire-open construction work1 in Alberta again. "The tendency, is in these troublous he conserve effort and financial resources as much- as possible. "I hclioiR that following these difficult times, the west will experi- ence a greater, more substantial and moie sane development than before.
