Opening: Up New Agricultural
Vary fsw British Columbian* realit*
th* latent value of Ihe va��t acreage of
valuable agricultural land now lying
open to settlement in the lower Fianr
Valley, or the vast pouibilitie* of that
West of the Hope mountain, and between the Fraser and international
line lit* more tli*u a million aud a
quarter acre* of laud, over half nt
whioh i* tillable, while at preieiit leal
than 10,000 acre, are under cuts ivas ion.
For yeara settlement and development of thia district hss been alow
owing to tba occasional flooding of
thi* land during the annual riu of th*
Fraser, and lack of tranaprsttation fac-
llitie*. These dificulties have lieen and
��r�� being obviates! The lands hats*
all beeu dyked by the muuicipaliti**
and the assistance of th* prorluiHal
Government, and the Cat adian Pau-slfk
Railway  i* about to construct liasP'
hioh will open up the*, land* fully.
Ths Hns will run trom Hdps to iM
ooast, and with its branches to cOnltsct
ith New Wswtminatsr, Vancouver
���nd Victoria, will b* aome 1B0 mile*
iu length, much of which will b* built
thia year, aud it ia confidently expected
that a ateady stream of immigration
will set in to the lower mainland as
soon sa ihis lint ia constructed and
that the rapid development of the immense agriculturul resource* of thia
favored by nature district will continence. If thi* reault follow*, and it
surely will, Britiih Columbia will mm
bo able to fead itself and will no lenger
have to depend on' Washington, the
Territoriea aud th* East for it* food
Some idea of tha possibilities of thi*
diltriot may be gained by referring to
Surrey municipality, uro*. from New
Westminster. Tl.l* town contains
260,000 aores, halt of which is tillable
but of wbioh only 10.080 acres arCoul*
tivated. Surrey's agricultural produce
laat yesrvaa vaJu*d.**^ ��g��,000, py

During ih*' easne jear Britiab Columbia imported $2,fs00,000 worth ol er*
duce from tb* TJnited State* and about
the *aiue amouut from the Eaat aud
from the Territoriea.
It will be seeu from the foregoing
that the opening of then* land* wilt
enable our peopl. to save Mvstrat mil
lion* each year, kasp our money at
home, and add immeasurably to tlrS
wealth and materially tot i* population
of our province.
The Provincial Government will encourage the system of sra.isl holi1ii)|ia
iu opening up this rs*--iou by refusing
to sell land in large iracts. The Government will supply *i .imping powder
to settlers at cost, *n i by other mean*
enable the aettler to i educe tbe coat ot
clearing land to a minimum. I.i thi*

FRIDAY. Mat 31. 1901.
We cannot help expressing strong
disapproval of th* action ot lhe Federal
Ooverninent in increasingth��MS*ional
indemnity from $1,0001.011,500. This
is certainly a matter that onght to
have been brought before the elector*,
and in passing the,aot in the way they
did tlie Government has tsksn * mun
advantage of the taxpayers. Tbl. Is ���
cse in point where the principle of the
referendum ought lo be adhered lo and
the electors ba ihe ones lo decide
whether tbey would increase the allow*
ance ot their representatives in parlia
A hired man lias no right to increase
hi* salary without the consent ot hi*
employer, and if he doe* so it must
eil Iter be by force or fraud, The membera who were recently elected knew
what the sessional indemnity was, snd
j ist what they would get if they were
elected, but not one of them expressed
.any dissatisfaction with the allowance
which they kuew they would receive,
but a* aoon as they were in power and
in �� position to help themselves, without saying one word to their employers (th* electors), they appropriated
another $500 per session.
This action on the part ot parliament i* con'einptible and ought not to
sbs overlooked by the ratepayera. It is
an underhanded way of doing business
and as such should receive the severesi
It is uo justification to plead that
Ihe act was concurred in by the leader
of the Opposition in parliament. His
approval or disapproval does not inaka
the matter right.
Moreover, there is no need of an increased allowance. One thousand dol
lars is f.ir remuneration for four
mouths' work and is more than many
ot the members would make it I hev
were at home attending to their private
lt is well known that nearly every
member of parliament travels on a free
railway pass so there is nolhiug to pay
om of tlie sessional allowance for
traiisjsorialion. On a four months'
-session they make $250 per month,
which ia aiiijil* for all tbeir needs aud
is a good deal more than some or thein
are worth.
Tbia act ia all the more reprehensible
coming as it doe* from lha Liberal
Ooverninent who were pledged to
economy. The increased sessional indemnity will add $4:17,000 to the espouse of Governmeut. There are many
old-time Liberals who cannot help
feeling disappointed with the action of
ihe leader, of the party, and see only
- too clearly what must be the inevitable
T.in public treasury ia always looked
upon tir politicians as fair prey for
theio, and ibe apathy with which the
average elector looks upon this aort of
thing givea greater encouragement to
tlie avaricious plunderers.
We hope our readera will make a
mental note of tlila matter and when
Ih. amooth-tongtied candidate comes
around so interview .��� lie "dear work-
iiignieii" about their votes ace to it that
he is made aware ot their sentiments
regarding liis plundering |>ruclivitie*
It wsll 1st seen hy relerensw to a dee-
patch (rom Ottawa, pul.lial.od in an-
uth.r column, that tha Dominion Ooverninent ara likely to disallow uartaiu
legislation psssed by the provincial
Gj.erii.ne.it restricting Japanese immigration and their employment in
���uroifisid inslsisiries. The people of
British _Columbia ahould not tamely
���sihn.il to tbia. If the le<.'ial.itioii
passed by I l.e local leuislaiiirsisin liti*
with the wishes ot th* people, and we
Iselis-vo it is, it s'iuiiU Im backed up
with public seuti.ue.it that tolerates no
i uiei ference If i lie sett an disallow
ed the electors ahould press for thsir
re.et.nuiment and keep the agitation up
till tii* desired end is secured. If thi*
is not il'jiie tl.e Dominion authorities
will conclude that tl.e |seo|slo of Ihis
