COOPERATIVE CREAMERY.
We have now incorporated our
creamery association. The name of
the organization is "The Farmers' Co
operative Creamery Association."
Now draw a long breath after reading
the name.
We have ordered a 12- H. P. hori
zontal Leffel boiler, an 8-H. P. hori
zontal Clark engine, a 600 pound Sim
plex churn and butter worker com
bined; with the balance of our out
fit in proportion. Our capital stock is
$2500.00, divided into 50 saares of $50
each. None but farmers who are the
owners of cows can become stock
holders.
Our officers are seven trustees, four
of said trustees to be the executive
officers, as follows: President, W. J.
Abbott; vice president, C. A. Hart
suck; secretary, O. D. Sullivan; treas
urer, J. M. Cole. The other three trus
tees are F. D. Frost, B. W. Johns and
E. Elliott. The estimated number of
cows at the time of beginning is 335.
We intend to open the factory by
March 20th. Our butter maker is
James Fell, of Indianapolis, Ind., and
is now on his way to Olympia. Our
factory is under construction; located
near the business center.

That the cooperative creamery sys
tem works well in British Columbia
is shown by me annual statement of
the Delta Creamery Association,
given below:
The Delta Creamery Company, Ltd.,
held their annual meeting in the
Town .hall last week, to receive the
financial statement of the year. It
was found that the association had
had a very successful year, so much
so, that the shareholders will receive
a ten per cent, dividend, and after this
has been paid the sum of $250 will be
added to the reserve fund making that
amount $2,206. During the year 1901,
84,127 pounas of butter had been
made, amounting to $23,389. The old
board of directors, Messrs. H. N. Rich,
H. D. Benson, Thos. E. Ladner, Wm.
Pybus and J. A. Patterson were re
elected. C. F. Green was again ap
pointed secretary. The board elect
their own officers and H. N. Rich has
been re-elected as president. A very
pleasant part of the closing of the
meeting was the presentation of $75
to Mr. Rich for the able way in which
he had directed the affairs of the as
sociation. The success of the past
year it is believed was owing very
much to his able management of af
fairs.
While Yakima farm laEds~command
high prices, they are still cheap. There
are not many of us here so old, that
we will not live to see them selling
readily at prices from 100 to 300 per
cent, higher than those prevailing.
Yakima lands yield from year to year
$20 to $100 an acre net profit when
planted to hay, potatoes, onions, hops,
melons or any of half a dozen other
crops. Orchards pay net profits of
from $100 to $700 an acre. The crops
and the profits never fail. Such land
is worth more than it is now selling
for, and we do not sympathize with
the cry that prices are so high as to
discourage immigration. Let the new
comer who thinks Yakima land costs
too much pass on. The old settler is
usually a pretty good citizen himself.
