That, at the same time our lands were selected they had practically the choice of the country. That our lands were chosen for the purpose of fruit-growing, and was In their opinion, the best obtainable. That due consideration was given te sections requiring irrigation and those said not to require it. That our lands were chosen with a view to irrigation, should it be found and can irrigated at a very small expense. That since that time it has been satisfactorily demonstrated that ir- rigation is not required. That transportation facilities and conveniencesto market were not over- looked. That the choosing of land in small isolated where schools and churches could net be maintained, was carefully avoided. That we believe, there are no bet- ter fruit in British Columbia, than we are offering at the present market price. We are net selling on COM flON.
