Success in large measure attended
the annual business men's dinner,
at tbe Empress, on Friday evening.
The function was held under the
auspices nf the Hoard of Trade, and
that body should lie stimulated and
congratulated on tho result of the
effort. If the banquet is any criterion, of tho next twelve months in
Chilliwack, the city will abound
with enthusiasm, and husiuoss and
civic development will gain inomeu-
tum from Ihe united energies of Ihe
various business interests of tlic city.
The tli.....-.' was delayed until a
late hour owing to the late arrival
of the tram which brought sonic of
the guests, At eleven o'clock about
sixty sat down to do justice to the
array of good things for the satisfying of the inner man, provided hy
the genial proprietor of the Empress,

decided fashion to the merits of this
portion of tbe program, After nil,
with few exceptions, bad kindled
tlieir tires and got steam up for the
next part of the "Menu", 11. J.
Harlier, as toastmnsler, proposed
the health of the King which was
responded to in true British fashion.
A letter of regret was read from
Premier McBride, who had lieen invited to.he present. Pressure nf business, previous to tbe opening of the
Legislature, did not permit a visit
to Chilliwack at this time.
"Cnnada" was ably proposed by
II. J. Barlier, wbo emphasized the
the desirability of keeping the wheels
of progress revolving and business
interests properly lubricated and
adjusted in Chilliwack, that this
portion of Canada might keep pace
with thc wonderful development of
the Country, .specially thc western
portion of it. The drinking of the
Toast was followed by "The Maple
Leaf Forever", when J. D. Taylor,
M. P. for Westminster, responded,
to an accompaniment of hearty
applause Mr. Taylor dwelt mainly
on the projects and proposed developments by the Dominion Cloverment
in relation to Western Canada.

Dr Patten sang "The Veteran's
Song" in a style that met with

A. L. Coote proposed n toast to
'British Columbia", which bubbled
over with Mr. Cooto's characteristic
humor, and coupled with it the
nam.' of S. A. Cawley, M. P. P
who elucidated the wealth in tbe
resources of the province iu lumber,
mining, agriculture ami tisbing,
and the proud position B.C. occupied
in Iteii-g a1 'le to at anv time liquidate
ita national debt witb funds on deposit in thc banks of thc province.
In addition to this he stated the
province owns and controls all its
lands except the twenty mile railway
belt, and concluded his address witli
a story in which a political meeting,
a lengthy six-ukor. the abundant
ro-ourecs of the province and nn
auditor who saw an additional item
and suggested the advantages of an
immediate recognition of the same.
"Our Cily" was proposed in a
few well chosen words bv It. F.
Waddington, who commented on
the advance of Chilliwack during
recent years, and the fact that the
Government Post Olllcc had failed
to keep pace with thc march of
time. This was one of the local conditions which was sadly neglected.
Mayor Munro was associated with
the response and gave an address on
the City's development, and ambitions past, present, and future. Tbe
Mayor's reminiscences of Chilliwack
were decidedly interesting and were
told with a quite humor that kept
the audience on the alert. In commencing his address he said that the
two cuts of Wellington street as
published in the Free Press of Friday
was a true picture of the situation
as presented in 1801 and 1911.
Twenty-one years ago there were
twelve places of business while now
there are flighty - seven. The
spaakor rotated sonic of bis early
experiences, tlm real estaui boom of
!M, which was of shortduration ami
in which thore wns moro enthusiasm
and less money tliau in any real
estate situation anywhere Up lo llllll
time. On tho '-'1st of May '111 the
i lirst sod of an electric railway was
| turned, which was the sum total of
j the operations, The Mayor then
stated that for the next seven or
eight years lho staying qualities of
the citizens of the place were put
to the test and the stamina displayed during these yenrs was bard to
boat, During thc past six years
great changes hud taken place, (lid
buildings were replaced by new,
banks were established, an eight
roomed public school and a high
school erected, roads and sidewalks
constructed, electric train service,
electric lighting, water service,
drainage, city bull and incorporation
as a city, In fact the only business
institution that bad not changed
during the past twenty one years
was the jiost office. At this point
J. D. Taylor. M. P., who had taken
note of tbe comment on the Dominion Government building, ventured the information (?) that he would
have one sent by express. It was
evident from the tenor of the references to the post office situation
that a long suffering public bad
about reached the limit of its
"Our valley" was proposed by
A. E. White, president of Westminster Board of Trade, who reviewed tbc subject of transporution
from carlv times, nnd dwelt on the
potentiality and resources of the
valley, tbe project of draining
Sumas Lake, and concluded with a
picturesque description of, and licst
withes for tbe future of Chilliwack.
To H. Eckert fell the pleasure of
replying, and in doing so made
reference to the increased production
of tbe valley by more intelligent,
systematic and intensified cultiva
tiou of tlie soils. More products
were raised and shipped from the
valley now than ever before, an I he
looked lor and predicted a very
large increase in the future.
" Oil to Philadelphia in tbe
Morning" by Fred Han, was the
next iteui und proved u popu ar
"The B.C. Electric Railway Co."
was proposed bv J H. Ashwell who
referred to the early means of transportation via the river, and the delays, and other pioneer features of
traffic proiilem. The inauguration
of the B. C. E R and the benlits
the city bad derived Irom it. F.
R. Glover, who responded on liehalf
of the company, was hailed with
three cheers and a tiger nud the
singing of "For they're Jolly Good
Fellows." Mr. Glover paid u compliment to the early residents of the
valley when he stated that as long
as twenty live years ago, Chilliwaek
Valley wns one of the most, if not
the most progressive community
along the coast. Transportation was
u big advantage to any community
and Chilliwack bad shared tbo results incident to the establishing of
railway communication. This bail
changed conditions, one instance
lieing that the Creameries ceased to
make butter, hut the milk ship|>ed
to Vancouvor ami sold, brought a
price equal to tilty-twoor lifty-tbrce
cents a pound for butter. In shaking of the resources of the valley
Mr. Glover directed attention to the
fact that the largest available
cement deposits in British Columbia
were to be found within a few miles
of the city, thc supply lieing praot
ically unlimited. This property,
together with a property on Vancouver Islam!, near Victoria, had
been purchased by tbe Consolidated
Cement Co., of England, the largest
cement company in the world.
Operations on the Island would !«'
started iu the curly spring und on
tbe completion of the plant there,
a large plant would lie installed here,
und a spur line of the B. C. E. R.
constructed to the plant. Tbe
speaker assured thc assembly of the
genuineness of the company and its
purpose. Mr. Glover nlso stated
thnt  iniiK.rtn.it coal collieries, in
close proximity to the city were
highly probable in thc near future,
as there were splendid indications
of a Ilrst class quality of bituminous
coal in the hills tn the north of the
city, lie was of the opinion that the
Cily and Valley was on the eve of
an era of wonderful progress and
development. The ever productiveness of the valley from the standpoint of the soil, the cement industry
coal collieries, with Improved river
navigation,and Ihroi railway lines in
the near future. When such a forward movement had marked thc
past few years, whal might be expected during the next few years
with all these additional advantages.
The li. C. E. It. had made no mis-
lake iu coining to Chilliwack and
results   thus   far had cxi ded the
company's most sanguine expectations. 'I'be road will, at present rate
of increase, produce a profit in three
years Instead of live years as bad
befin estimated. With regard to
the extension of tbe rond to Rosedale
Mr. Glover, stated that as soon as

Chilliwack Board of Trade Reviews Work of
Year and Elects Officers.   Prospects
Bright for 1912
The Chilliwack Board of Trade
wound up the business of 1011 and
started on the campaign lor IUI2 on
Friday, night when about forty of
the members assembled in the Odd
Fellow's hall for ihe annual meeting.
After preliminaries were disposed of
a letter was read from Mr. MiLcod
re mail service across the river from
Harrison and suggested in the event
of same not being secured owing to
cust, that a service from Abbotsford
over the B. I'. E. R. l«o inked for.
By this method eastern mail would
be transferred from t'. p. R. to B.
C. E. R. at Abbotsford and arrive
at Chilliwack at 12 (noon) instead
of 9 p.m. as at present. The
main object of the Board asking for
a re-establishment of the service to
Hnrrison, is to keep up regular
communication between the city
and the towns on the north side of
the river. The passenger tnirti.-
alone, at present is not sufficient to
maintain a constant service.
R. J. Snellgrove, Vancouver,
wrote the Board, regarding the
maintenance of the Vancouver Market and suggesting that a resolution
lie forwarded from the Board pointing out the advantage this concern
is to the shippers of produce from
Chilliwack. The matter was p..
fcrred to tic Agricultural Committee.

sion as to the best way in which to
bring about the results desired, a
committee consisting of Mr. Burrow,
Mr. E. A. Wells and C. E. Eckert,
was appointed to submit n plan,
draft a constitution and by-laws,
and wben ready to report, advise
the Chairman, who would then enll
another meeting at which every
dairyman in the valley would lie
invited to be present. The idea
prevails that much good to thc
lairy interests can be accomplished
through a valley organization, and
the matter should receive loyal
support of every person who has
any interest in this line of, work.

The world derives the greater pnrt of

or ruby-bearing day. Near by, in Ihe
valleys (if tbe Burma lis, tbo search for
rubies is conducted pretty much as it
was centuries and centuries ago. Tlu*
digging and washing there is n matter
of hand labor: but they are still got
ting the rubies.
In the Mogul. Valley, however, when*
large woikings are always in hand, n
scientific system has been Introduced
with corresponding results. The byon
is extracted by the open-ipiuiry method
of removing ad the surface down tn thc

Tho failure of tho national supply
of horses and tho collapse of tho endeavors to make good the lows aro
ubout to appeur in their full seriousness, Officially it is still maintained
that there aro plenty of army horses.
Tho fact is that the source of the
best reserve has disappeared completely nml more or less suddenly—us witnessed by cortain sales of the past
tow days.
Though the cavalry nnd the artillery have still onongh horses for im
mediuto use, it remains that tho Yeomanry ami Territorials are for practical purposes horseless. In periods
of training during tho summer they
have hud to use the sumo horses over
and over again. Ho far from having
control uf enough horses for a time
of war or general mobilization, they
hftVo not enough If the horses hud to
be mod BlmuJtnnoously —not enough
by CO per cent, fur peace ninnoeuvres.
If the year's work of a group nf these
Territorial horses were told iu del nil
it would appear us more than a labor
of Hercules. Some of Ihem have
been used without u duy's rest success
Ivoly   in   ii   score   of   districts,   and   the
cou.se of  tlieir mIgnitions would nur

behind him. What tho horse-breeding industry wants is some British
rivals; and outside n fuir number of individual officers and hunting-men he
has none. The loss of the omnibus
horses nlso affects farmers nnd small*
holders, and many men who traffic in a
small way on tlic roads or fields. But
the army is the worst sufferer, for the
farmers have como to their own rescue.
Thoy aro breeding Shiro horses more
nnd moro. The Shiro Horse Society is
tno o prosperous and popular than horse
society over has been. Tho trouble is
that the Shirt* is no longer, us in the
old days, of military value.
A purely fictitious stimulus has been
lent to horse-breeding by tho Olympia
Show, and the ovei whelming success
of foreigners begins to innko this manifest. The Kniser was perfectly right,
though jus telegram caused some aillUBO-
ment, when he congratulated liis olli-
eers on victories iu charger classes, for
the chargers were bred nt Government
stations which are ihe most perfect, in
the world. The Hermans nro doing at

(From Tlio New York  Press)
Oskur Nngel, research  chemist, chemical   engineer nnd  author, announces
he hns perfected u process whereby he
will   extract   gold   and   kail   (potash)
from tho ocean nt a remarkably low
cost.    Dr. Nagol will give his first demonstration  of his process before thc
Xew York section of tlic American Che

of eight or more persons assembling in
arms, ami revolting, or refusing to disperse nt the order of their superiors; in
the other case, that of any person hold-
lug military or naval command who disobeys nn order of Qovernmont to quit
such command, or lo disband his forces.
Both these offences wero legally punishable with death. Arab! Pasha's plea
in defence of his conduct was that the
Khedive, who hud fully authorized tho
defence of the forts of Alexandria, put.
himself into the hands of the British
commander, then actually engaged In
hostilities; and that the Khedive's or
der to surrender was, therefore, not to
lie oboyod by him as Minister of War
acting in concert with llie other Minis
tors uud governing persons, The public
Court   was opened, for the purpose of
passing sentence. The pn filings were
brief: the President of Ihe Court Martini simply rend Hie formal BOtltODCO ni

lu 1897 if was discovered by Mayor
Qnynor that the public library of a
certain place Ell U.S.A., called Ureal
Hariington, did not contain a copy of
tho Blblo. Ho thorofbro presented one,
iu which were inscribed the words: "1
have found a groat many libraries
which lacked a great many books, but
never before hnve I found one like this.
which lacked the Ureal Hook." Culling
again four years later, he wns informed
that no one eve:* used the book he had
presented, The Catholic journal "America" considers these Great Barring-
tonians on a par with the community
of Ann Arbor, Michigan, where seventy-
eight students were recently subjected
to a Biblical examination with the fob j
lowing results.
"The test was not made off-hand, but
nearly an Hour was allowed to write
down the answers. The results were
startling. One volunteered the valuable informntion that the Old Testament was written B.C., tlic oilier was
not; another affirmed that 'the Oltl
Testament represented Hebrew fable.'
while 'the Xew dealt with hist orient
characters.' Another, again, that 'tho
Oh! was composed largely of stories nnd

i lieved to have actually happened.' 'By

The Free Press is pleased to note
the splendid number ol business
men who availed tbenisel res of tlio
opportunity of attending tho Board
of Trade Banquet on Friday night
and also the good fellowship shown.
The idea or thc business interests of
the city gathering around the festive
board is one which promotes goml
feeling and unity of effort. A review of thc past, the conditions of
the present and the aims and prospects for the future are good subjects to dwell upon on such an
occasion. It creates enthusiasm,
confidence, loyalty to home interests and civic pride. There
might have been a larger representation present, as a number of the
faces of local business men were
absent. Wc hope that the next
banquet will include every business
man iu Chilli waek.
Wc have in stock a number ol standard doors, assorted

J! in general, and some in particular.
♦ I "Dog Toby," an occasional contri-
% | butor to the Free Press, was singled
out and the Mayor in the role of
veterinary made two diagnosis of
tho Doggie's troubles. The first one
was to the effect that Toby was a
pup and had not got use of his
optics, and later that thc animal
had hydrophobia. With all due
respect to the Mayor and Dog Toby,
we fail tn see the point in His Worship going to so much trouble
in au effort to enlighten the canine,
which in his own opinion was blind
and suffered from an incureable
malady. Hydrophobia subjects are
generally given a wide berth, but
the Mayor felt strenuous and much
in earnest, and took his life in his
hands. Owing to pressure of space,
and the danger arising from
contagion wc have had the Mayor's
Hydrophobia patient securely chained for this week.

In connection with the Board of
Trade on Friday night, wc, with
several others of the more recent
residents of the city, would suggest
that the banquet and election be
held on separate evenings, the
election following the banquet
possibly. The procedure on Friday night struck the new members,
as being too hurried, and littio
time given to the selection of the
various ollicers. The idea seemed
to be to get it over and get away.
We have no criticism to make of
thc very capable officers elected, but
thc Hoard of Trade should load in
progrossiveness, even in the election.
A re-arrangement of talent and a
few of tho 'now bloods" would Is
a profitable experiment, and encourage the new men to join anil
take an active interest in the affairB
of the city and vallcv. The Free
Press has no axe to grind, nor
personal ambitions to satisfy. Our
time is fully occupied in a calling
in which the public weal demands
and receives attention each day of
Mr. Editot—Shall the dairymen
organize to promote the general
good of dairy interests in the valley?
The advisability of this question
should appeal favorably to everyone identified with dairying in the
Chilliwack valley, for there is no
doubt but that much good can lie
accomplished thru the organized
efforts of associated dairymen, provided all will take an active interest in the matter and give hearty
support to the movement. Conditions have arisen in the whole
milk market in Vancouver, which,
when rightly understood, should
make the producer sit, up antl take
notice. The price of butterfat paid
to the producer has been reduced,
and thc prices to consumers have
been advanced. The reduction has
been made at a season of the year
when milk is scarce and the dairyman has every reason to believe
the price to him should be maintained. It must lie at once apparent then, that a reduction of the
price of butter-fat at this season of
the year must Iw the result of extraordinary causes, and to ascertain the same, can best be accomplished thru some good working organization here. The general
expression present at a small meeting of dairymen recently held in
this city, was tliat great benefit to
the dairy interests could be accomplished thru an a association
composed of creamery patrons and
the Independent shippers. A committee was appointed to draft a
constitution and set of by-laws,
which was to report to tbe chairman
when ready; the chairman to then
call a general meeting' of all the
dairymen in thc valley, to discuss
ways and means, and to adopt or
reject the committee's report. I
am told on good authority that the
apply of milk going from thc
valley today is neatly one-half of
the entire amount shipped into the
ity of Vancouver. Now if this bo
true, is it not possible that if the
supply from here were handled in
an intelligent manner, by some
wisely appointed commission, tho
priced of whole milk and sweet
cream could be fixed by the producers of the valley? Without
organization, we shall always be
at the mercy of the wholesale dealers in the city, but with it. wc
would In- in a position to have
something to say iu the matter of
prices. Transportation is also a
question which will soon need our
attention, and thru organized efforts
wc could no doubt secure what wc
desire, and what would be most
agreeable to dairy interests in this
valley. Certain matters in connection with present laws, detrimental
to dairy interests, eould also be
brought to the attention of our lan-
makers, and righted thru organisation. It seems to me therefore,
that we should lose no time in
getting together and giving hearty
support to a movement which will
have for its objects, only the welfare of the dairymen, and 1 earnestly hope to see a large number of
men at the meeting to be called by
Mr. J. A. Evans, when these
questions will all be discussed and
a start made to organize for mutual
protection of interests.

The Editor,—
Dear Sii—I have often wondered
since  I came  to this Valley in the
Spring of 1008, why Poultry Farm-1
ing was not engaged in on a commercial scale here and it would seem to I
me that thc reasons arc, firstly, the'
abnormal cost of tho proper foodstuffs. Secondly, no very reliable or
satisfactory market. ,
Then too, of course, the poultry
business  has been   reduced  to  al
science of late years, and lo make a
I thorough success it needs to l>o stud-1
i ied very carefully as do all other i
; businesses.
By forming nn Association we!
I shall be able easily to remove the |
, foregoing obstacles, und 1 see no
reason why, in the course of a short
i time, we should not have poultry ns
1 a staple industry of this Valley as it
j is of others.
i Tliere is big money in poultry.
I One poultry farmer on a twenty-
five acre farm on Lnlu Island
! hatched and sold last year 48,000
I day-old chicks at fifteen cents. One
poultry farmer at Langley makes an
average weekly income of 8125.00
finin his poultry. Another poultry
farmer at Ijingley is making 8300
per month on a small farm.
These are actual figures antl show
what can bt: done. If they can
accomplish this wc enn too.
1 have read witli much interest
the articles appearing in your issues
of   recent date bearing upon the
above subject and have sinco conferred witli two of our local specialists
and   prize  winners  with the result
thai  we decided to call together all |
those in this locality who arc inter-!
ested in Ihe welfare..f poultry farming   ami  form  nn  Association   us!
ln order that the formation of

the Young Turk government obviously
wishes to prevent such occurrences. It
is plain to see that the Porte is in a
