RULES GOVERNING  DETROIT AUTOISTS  Are Issued to Curb Numerous Accidents Occurring' on City Streets  A list of traffic rules for motorists  has  been issued  by the city of  Detroit in order to curb the numerous  accidents occurring there daily.

C, March 2S.���������In the  rugliest game ever witnessed in these  parts the Chilliwack basket ball team  led by "Doughie" Spring of Minto  Cup fame won a gory victory ever the  ���������local boys.  Matsqui opened the game in lightning fashion scoring seven points in  rapid succession against one for their  opponents.  Then began the wierdest exhibition  of basket ball within the memory of  fans and players alike. The game was  played by 1919 rules Chilliwack version. Nothing was barred but aerial  bombs and machine guns. The "veiled" first was much in evidence. Bleed  ing, sore and groggy from the rough  treatment they had received the Matsqui boys limped from the Moor at the  end of the first half with the score  18 to 7 against them.  The local team refused to take the  floor for the second half but after a  brief conference decided to "soe it.  thrrough", over vigorous protests of.  the infuriated spectators. The boys  went into the final session with the  "neverBay die" spirit that is fast becoming a Matsqui tradition and in  spite of the handicap of playing by  foreign rules broke even with the visitors in the final session the game  ending 34 to 23 for Chilliwack.  "Doughie" Spring of the famous  New Westminster Salmohbollies piav-  cd for Chilliwack and in spite of his  tender years gives promise of becoming one of the greatest amateurs in  the game.  The local boys are busy counting  their bruises, but take pride in the  fact that they "played the game".  Grimly turning the other cheek to the  roughhouse tactics of their opponents  they won a great victory for clean  honest sport In the Fraser Valley.

BATES^ Editor and.Proprietor  ' Published Eymt Friday  .'   .        FRIDAY, APRIL 4, 1919   .,    . ..  .j...������������������.  ' With the beginning of this month Lhe.geiier-.  al public cease to subscribe to the Canadian  Patriotic Fund, but the work oi' the Fund still  goes on���������until the end ol the demobilization, of  the Canadian soldiers. Jl' there are not sul'iic-  iqnt funds in the treasury of the Patriotic  Fluid to meet- all demands from this date oil,  tiie Dominion government will come to the assistance of tlieVund. ' The pay to the soldiers'  ..'dependents will still go on.  The Fund lias not been a popular one with  the public. So far as we are concerned we  have always felt that the public v/u-e given, a  privilege, when tlie Government ashed them to  contribute voluntarily. That privilege was  never appreciated by many; while on the other  hand contributions were made in the hundreds  and thousands of dollars by men who could  well afford to do so. But the ordinary worker  did not see it in the same light as the rich man-  But if the method of getting the money'was  not considered the very best that' could have  been planned, it should on account of its very  great importance have .been well supported.  The cost of administering the fir.id has been  very light. The number of salaried persons  handling the fund throughout the Dominion'  was very small, .consequently the percentage  of expenses, as compared with the handling of  like large amounts, was a mere trifle. All  local secretaries throughout the jTDvince and  the dominion did the work gratis, as did all  collectors, without exception so i';.r as .-we  know. Had the government.taxed the people  for this fund the expenses would have been  much greater and compared;with. The amount  of money given thve soldiers' dependents we,believe there would have been more mistakes.  We are judging by the number of .setters that  have been written locally about other funds to  soldiers' wives. There was one thing too very  much in its favor, it came regular, y and thus  always acceptable and dependable.  Fault can be found with all funds that have  been.collected for.distribution during the war  but we believe, none has. done its duty better  than the Canadian Patriotic Fund.  Locally, there is a- shortage in making up  the full amount for the last two months. On  the other hand there, are on the secretary's  book some promises unfulfilled. Shall we let  all these go?  We believe, although, sometimes we are out  of our reckoning, that there is something going to happen in provincial politics before  very long. That something is a pr jvincial election during the coming summer. We have  always taken notice of pre-election. \ signs and  the present signs point more to ;..n election  this summer than on many previt ���������:��������� 3 occasions  The decks are being cleared off, .\ ady for the  coming fray���������it may be a calamity. Everything is awaiting the reports handed in by the  different Liberal candidates and their friends.  If it appears at.all favorable the Oliver government will go to the country ere a -lotfoer session. Of- course that- report may not appear  as favorable to "Honest" John as he would  like, but he is, so some of his besc' riends say,  ready to take a chance.. -  If the Oliver-government is rei^y, to take a  chance in*testing the will of the ] eople, it is  decidedly true that the people a::e willing to..  give their verdict. Their verd-.ct will un  doubtedly be given with no uncertain sound.  \e fouadat-  ,-epeated so  ������,ck n eyed.  The statement that "credit is  ion of modern business" has been  often that the phrase has become 1  What is credit?  Primarily, it is reputation���������a moral, not a  financial thing. As such, it is possessed e-  qually by the millionaire and by the young  man, just starting in married li"e, who buys  household furniture on the instalment plan.  British Columbia is a great pbu-o for credit.  Doing business on a man's word, or a firm's  word is practised to such an extern that sometimes Urge businesses arc done almost solely  on credit..  There is no asset more valuable to a man,  than a reputation for being one wi o plays the  game. Let the business house or community  pursue a different policy and in a Jew months  the delinquency will be known "to the trade"  throughout the country.  Integrity and past business counts for much  in credit.    Both must be established.  It pays to play the game, v  France is accused of holding :ip pea.ee negotiations. It must however be remembered  that France was invaded by Germany but she  wants to prevent an occurrence of invasion if  at all possible. Peace negotiations to France  is a more serious matter than to either England or.the United States. Who can blame  France for wanting to make the precautions  as permanently adequate as possible, even if  there is a little delay.  .-���������f'The Rhine according to France is the logical  defensive frontier. If France held ail the  bridges and the territory on one side of tlie  Rhine river, it would be impossible,to surprise  France on- any future occasion.  In justice to France the countries who have  fought side by side' with her should see that all  precautions are taken to safeguard one of the  noblest people on the continent of Europe���������  the French.  ..While.this is being done for France the Allies should not forget Italy's claims against an  enemy country, and see that the northern part  of the Adriatic is safeguarded for Italy.  A fanner on the street the other day, says  the Shelby Record had a sack of meal in his  hands when he said: "Just look at this peck of  meal for which.! nad to pay sixty-live cents  and. which I used to buy for 25 cents.- It is a  dirty shame the prices we must pay the merchants." He was :-.sked if his only business in  town was to buy meal.    "No," lies aid, "1  brought n a load <v tobacco and sold it at one  of the warehouse*." "What did you get .for  it?"was asked, "/'orl.y-cight cents a. pound,"  washis answer.- ������������������;���������.'ne more question was asked: "How much (h.i you get for tobacco when  you could buy meri at twenty cents a peck?"  And he simply said. "You go to ���������" and walked  away.  Many smokers..>v-.ay be puzzled by the diffi-  i getting favorite brands of  to, more especially when it  ; quantifies of tobacrj aro  The official explanation  the hist three or four months of-  the war tobacco c.'ime info this country iu such  quantities, owinr: v.) the shipping space placed  at the disposal of the control board, that the  culty 'experienced i  tobacco and cigtu<.  is known that lar^  tying at the dock?  h that during  customs authorities were unable   to   pass  it  through their horded .warehouses with sufficient rapidity. Special efforts are now being-  made, to overtake the work, and pivotal men  arc .being released from the army to the tobacco manufacturers.. j,nd everything points to the  public supply being gradually increased.���������Irish Mail.  Not the silly slogan, "The war is over!" but  the solemn warning, "Lest we forget!"- needs  to be impressed iu 1919, more than .in 1897,  when Kipling gave it to the people of Britain  inthe "RecessionsV It is America's duty not  to forget the long catalogue of" infamies that  brand and blast th- Hun. It is America's duty  to be that shining sword of "justice leaning  from the scabbard, to which President Wilson  has eloquently referred. Plain, everyday,  even-handed, Anglo-Saxon justice is the worst  doom that could 1)- fall Germany. The danger  is lest in our extrcme.good nature that is part  of the American character we shall grow tolerant a,nd kind and "orget the monstrous evil  that was wrought, because it has not come  cur dweliii.g.

'One  of these earliest pioneers decided t������  bo forehanded and obtain possession.  On'-'the northeast side of Sulphur  Mountain, where the sulphur bubbled  and a wondrous cave of -gloomy pools  and 'stalactites-promised attractions  for future tourists he erected a small  log hut and placarded It with a roughly planed hoard branded "hotel" in  letters of charcoal. Consequently,  while waiting for the rush of tourists  he fed and bathed-stray railroaders.  trappers, guiles and prospectors. He  was a free and easy landlord, i- there  tain storms soon, wiped out the strue*  tare.  To-day there is modern housing Ih  the big Canadian resort for three or  four thousand traaaienta. The peoples of the world visit the springs,  the caves, the fishing and huntiag  'grounds. They llv������ in the hotels and  go away satisfied with the comforta  provided. In th������ early days four  walls and a roof were comfort, to-  day- bellboys, ������levators, Waitresses,  servants, fine linen, baths, architectural marvels are necessities. Roman  baths, foodstuffs from the distant  parts of the earth take the place of  the muddy pools and the flour and  bacon of pioneer days.

N.., solo  manufacturer; not sold by druggists.  Saskatoon, Sask.  There are many people who look upon the  Fraser Valley as the coming Garden of Eden,  with farming opportunities - unexcel ied   anywhere in the province of British Columbia.  In days gone hy a noted politician remarked  that British Columbia was "a sea of mountains" but he forgot also to add that in among  these beautiful snow-capped mountains there  were innumerable beautiful and fertile valleys  with' climates superior to any other   part   of  this great dominion of ours.    He was not far-  sighted enough to know that in these valleys  a population could be accommodated, rich and  prosperous, larger than if the province of B. C.  were one vast level plain like the prairies. But  such is the case.    An acre of land in some of  these valleys will in farm produce, adapted to  the soil and climate, grow most probably more  than would three or four of the prairie land  to the east of the Rocy'Mcuntains.and yet be  productive much longer than the prairie land.  The prairie lands are adapted to the growing  of grain while the valleys of British Columbia  are more adapted to fruit, of all kinds, and  other farm products outside of grain.    An acre  of land on the prairies does well if it produces  seventy bushels of wheat to the acre, and $2.00  per bushel is a most excellent price; in fact  half that amount before the war was considered a happy medium.    Figure it out, 70 bushels  of wheat at $2.00 per bushel brings $140 per  acre.    $500 to $1000 per acre is   a   common  remuneration from an acre of land in some of  the valleys of British Columbia.        There are  cases where it will exceed the $1000, especially  under favorable conditions..   Ten tons of potatoes at $20 a ton beats the best wheat land productions that can be found anywhere in Canada..    Without going into details   -ilong   any  particular line the people of British Columbia  can truthfully say that the valley--, of the province are equal to the best if not better than  most agriculural land found   in    the   whole  of Canada���������and that is saying something that  any Canadian may well be proud of, for Canada���������from Atlantic to Pacific���������'is ideal agricultural land, the heritage of which Canadians  may well be proud of.  One of the largest, and shall we s ly the most  fertile of the many valleys of British Columbia  is the Lower Fraser Valley. In. :his we include the district to the south sitlo of the Fraser from Chilliwack to the Delta, and on the  north-side from Kent to Burnahv. There is  nothing to excel this district for fertility of the  soil and the climate. It is a desirable place to  live in as well as to work in. The man living  in Chilliwack will tell you that Chilliwack is  the ideal Garden of the Fraser Valley; while  the resident of the Delta will claim his district  as the banner for big crops; the Maple Ridge  old-timer will tell you that if you want the  real thing in soil and climate he has it right at  his back door; and the happy fnii- growers of  Mission will call attention to the big results  attained by the properous and successful growers: and other district will also put forward  their claims to precedence in soil and climate.  There is that healthy rivalry throughout the  Fraser Valley that often puzzles the man looking for a home, and the stranger at our gates  looking for a home becomes so filled up with  our claims that sometimes he leaves and  settles in the Okanagan where the people do  not boast so much of their productive soil and  sunny climate. Yet who will say that we do  boost too hard or too earnestly and honestly.  SBa^smKBB&msssasEm  There are at the present time well settled  districts in the Fraser Valley, but there is still  room for many hundreds of thousands of the  most prosperous little farms immaginable. It  is said that from twenty to forty acres' of land  in the Fraser Valley is large enough for any  man. Some people claim that ten or fifteen  acres is enough. But the size of the farm depends on what particular line of crop the owner wants to grow. Some men experienced in  garden truck, and fruit growing would find  ten acres a good large farm. Many of our best  fruit farms are about that size. But giving all  their choice of size., and the valley well settled  it could be made to produce, and not hurt the  land, a thousand times more than it does at.  the present time.  For transportation no district could be better accommodated. On the north side of the  river we have the great transcontinental rail-  j way, the C. P. R. On the south side, particularly around Abbotsford, they say all roads lead  to Abbotsford. The roads on the south side  there is the Canadian National, the Great Northern, the C. P. R. and the B. C. Electric. And  last but not least there is river transportation.  All these roads loa. to the cities of New West-  minser and Vancouver at the coast; while for  the prairies, used by fruit growers, the two  thoroughfares are the C. P. R. and Canadian  National. What more could be.desired in the  way of transportation, except it be- better  rates?  For highways there is the Dewdney Trunk  road on the north side of the river from the  coast to beyond Mission City���������with the prospects if its being built to the east end of the  district to connect with the proposed national  auto road to the eastern boundary of the province. On the south side of the river, there is  the Yale road extending from the coast to a-  way east of Chilliwack district. These main  arteries are connected with the surrounding  districts by municipal roads. These roads are  sure to become better within the next ten  years. There is an agitation on now to have  both main roads macadamized. It sounds big  but some of us remember when the greater  part of both roads were but mere trails.  Climate���������there is none to excel it in Canada  The sunny south of California may be preferred by some, but .:t is doubtful if for 365 days  of the year it surpasses the climate of the Fraser Valley. Our coldest clay is relished by the  man from the prnirie as a miid���������very mild���������  winter day.  With the best of soil, excellent transportation, livable climate, and the markets of the  coast cities at our doors, and the open markets  of the prairies brought near by two transcontinental railways, there should be oportunities  innumerable in the Fraser Valley for the man.  who will devote his time to the tilling of the  soil. This paper is particularly pleased to see  the Soldiers' Settlement Board taking the Valley into consideration, and seeding its representatives into the various parts of the district  to select land for homes for soldiers. But  the land owner must not forget that there is  no land boom coming. The boom will come  later when we get more people on the soil.  Keep the price of real estate down and give  them a chance to select good men as your  neighbors. The soldier wants to come to the  Fraser Valley to farm if we only let him and  make the conditions acceptable.  Make the prices right to intending 3oldier  farmers.
