Because of the loud publicity given to the '��������� few radical-and  disorderly returned inon, tlio whoh>  are lookod upon by some "as an un-  rnly, selfish lot.  In cont/radition of this Impression,  .look at "the Constitution of tho G.-W.  V. A. and then ask If it is carried out.  Perhaps tho sanest and moat practical-way to decide this question is ������o  ask the" thousands of widows and  dependents who havo-applied-to the  G. W. V. A. or have received, assis^  tance without application. There is  no doubt of the reply. As to the  Country vand Empire one has only to  view (he work of Comrade G. C.

W. V. A., which will also serve  as a tra'ffic regulator. /The financing  of-all this work is done principally  from the monthly dues paid by each  member of the association. It is not  the policy of the Abbotsford . Branch  to depend upon the public to support  it as in the case with many other  public organization, - by - holding  dances, whist-drives, etc., monthly  or semi-monthly. The annual Armistice Day Masquerade is the only  event by which the G. W. V.-A. has  benefitted by public money. Jit is  now fpund necessary however, to  hold a semi-annual affair of this nature, which will be announced in the  near Suture; and because of-the frequency' of the calls -upon the public  for funds,' as well as the public interest and "sympathy in the work of the  organization, it is a foregone conclusion that the affair will' receive the  full support of the people of Abbotsford.and district.-    ,   ^i- :���������  Many people appreciate the fact  that a new refuse and dump ground  has been set apart for ihe    town,    a?

There was" ho fin-,  er thing oh earth than this community- spirit.  With the true Oliverian touch the  Premier remarked "that with all deference to_the ministers of religion,  present," his opinion was that '"if  the people practised such kindness  and sympathy in distress and suffer-'  .ing in this'world, thfy' could safely  leave the Almighty to take care ot  them in the .next?"

Editor and Proprietor  {this   wonderful     thing  twelve, hundred guineas.  was  FRIDAY,   AIJRIL 14,  1922  Mr. Carve., appears to be ������,.a-| AH'we ������ced is ������>e co-operat^  pleased with the press and peo  pie of the west because of their  attitude towards tlie Board of  Railway Commissioners. In4  this attitude Mr. Carvel is n:.iking one big mistake. Neither  the people nor the press of the  west have any very serious  complaints against the railway  commission. Most of the criticism from this part of the dominion is against the chairman  of'the'commission, M^\ Carvell  himself. There was a time when  the railway commission was  looked' upon as one of tho  greatest institutions in Canada; the reason-of this was because it approached all complaints and controversial questions-in. an open minced wa*/  and dealt with them on their  merits. As a result of this way  of doing business both the railways and the * public got fair  treatment, and both were���������in  most cases���������well satisfied.    ^  When-the present chairman.  however, assumed office, no  appeared, to think from the  start that "to, be chairman of the  Railway Commission meant also to be a sort of godfather' to  all and, sundry. He has been  following these lines ever since,  and as a result western Canada  has had ample reasons for believing that Mr. Carvell's sympathies have always been more  with the railroads than with  the people.  There is not .the slightest  doubt that the present freight  rates.in the west are strangling  almost every branch of industrial activities, and none to a  greater extent than,the farm'  ing- industry:': .Realizing this  the west is putting up a stubborn, fight for a.'"reduction in  rates, and it will continue to do  so no matter whether it displeases Mr. Cafvell or not.  There is~talk of a clean up  day -for the town this month  and.this paper thinks it would  be a mighty good thing to advocate, not only that;'the town  is any worse than any other  town but during the long winter months the back yards and  lanes are the months-accumulations of rubbish and .Tefu.se  make spring and summer unpleasant and in some cases unhealthy unless this.Ms- cleaned  away. It is a matter'that should  receive the attention of every  householder and business-man  before the real hot weather and  fly season arrives. Besides he-  ���������* ingia safeguard for the health  of the community it is also a  safeguard against fire.  We did great things during  the.war, wonderful as a nation  and specifically wovffierfnl in  the spirit and deeds of our soldiers. Probably our nation  now has more vigor and initiative and creative power among  its people than ever before  once we look upward. Now let  us turn this great force inir  making living conditions better; throughout our country, in  making life pleasanter auc'  freer from sickness and sorrow.  If we put into this effort hah  the zeal and determination  but half the patriotic spirit thai  we .devoted to making the  world a "fit place to live in/  we; shall soon have the n.ost  beautiful and healthful town in  lhe Fraser Valley.  We ought to have a town  we can look upon with mide.  We have the intelligence and  appreciation for  good  spirit, the ability to work -oge  thcr democratically and .loyally  for the common- good of the  community.    , ---  Clean-up Day can be ' -adc a  wonderful success, the towii  can be made more beautiful  and prosperous looking, the  amount of sickness and the  death rate can be appreciably  reduced, and every   one can be ���������������������������  Has the Progressive party  lost its leader at the House at  Ottawa, is the question that,  many people throughout the  Dominion are asking. There is  not apparently unity within  the.party ranks according to  ihe very best reports.

Let us make a Clean-up  Day a success.  The town of Courtenay on  Vancouver Island has had a  bau against holding of, public  meetings, even a ban on goinc  to church. The ban will be lifted this week, so that' the ladies  will be able to display their.  Sunday hats on Easter.   ���������  Our Senate at Ottawa have to  deal'with many divorce cases  this year and it is hoped that  when they are through they  will make many people happy.  Over in the eastern States an  ex-senator in order to get an  easy divorce went to Bulgarian  court. But if that becomes the  fashion what will become of  Reno and Los Angeles?  Every once, and a while we  pick up little articles in the  press which- would indicate that  a more hopeful spirit is abroad  througout the Dominion than  was twelve months ago. A.  prominent American has made  the following observations:  "The consumer ' market  abroad for all products of .farm  and industry is now reviving.-  "The market for farm products at home, and for the products of our industry, is begin-,  ning to stir.  ��������� "Wheat has increased 40 per  cent.; sheep have doubled; cotton has doubled; hogs have almost doubled.  "Steadily advancing foreign  exchange values show that tin  era of exchange, speculation has  passed and the era of legitimate  export and import trade has begun. -  "A Europe whose trade channels were cut and closed by new  frontiers has reconstructed'..the  commercial flow across the-  boundaries <by trade agreement!  that are restoring-the healthy  life of Europe.     ^  "A Europe that conceived reparations to be collective . beyond the current productive capacity of a'people is. learning  that the burden must be, re-adjusted to the   limit   of "endur-r  ance. 7 -  "A Russia that is recovering  'Tom'its destructive debauch of  3ommunism is plainly approaching saner relations with  the world.  "The easy and happy thought  chat government operation  20iild spell relief for all hum-in  ���������Jistress has lost its seductive  2harm."  was even a Unionist before he  was a Progressive.'"However it  has been shown in the debates  that while the fanners are violently opposed'to protection on  what they have to bu<- they are  keen to secure orotection  againsUoss or risk in the marketing of their wheat, i ie selfish interests of the various  members of the party would require a leader more astute than  Mr. Crerar in order to keep thc  party together. It-is one thing  to elect a member on the hustings and another to form a  party policy acceptable to all  members of a newly formed  party. The policy of the Liberals or of the Conservatives was  not made overnight.  *  In looking.over .one of-our papers we find the following  taken from the "Merritt Herald" which will be. interesting:  "A thin, sickly little.man entered one of the stores, in Kam -  loops recently; so ��������� report says,  and quietly.seated himself on  a convenient chair.

O.  les  The railway passenger who seas  piles of worn-out cross ties . piled  up and set on fire by repair gangs  along the' right of way sometimes  wondi"-? why this is done and aak3  why people are'not. allowed to use  them for fuel. The Pennsylvania  Railroad has issued an' information  pamphlet dealing with this subject  wt/.co states:��������� , '        .  * "in the.first place, it is,far from  true that all the old ties are burned.  A - considerable . number are' constantly being sold to persons living  on or near the right of way, who  buy them at nominal prices, usually,  ten or fifteen cents apiece, and use  . them for'firewood. '  "That is about as far as the railroad company has been able to go,  thus far,  in   finding  an outlet  for  worn-out  ties.    Such  a  method  ot  disposal is practicable only in.those  cases ���������:.=ve the ties can be delivered  at a public crossing, or,other point  "���������where*they  can be  obtained safely  bv the users, and where the cost ot  so delivering  them   is   not greater  than the nominal prices obtainable.  "The   Company   cannot   sanction  the public going promiscuously over  tracks and through, yards to gather  up old ties.   To do so would bo practically letting down the bars against  triwnasning   on   the   tracks,   an   evil,  which has been the cause of about  half  of   al!   the   fatal  accidents   on  xailroads  in  the United States.  "Effort;? have been made to interest dealer's in firewood in buying the  old ties, but not thus far with much  o-.-fess     The  causes  appear  to   be  ���������that   the old. ties' are  often   dirty;  that th"V contain mo-e or  ess stone,  grit and slag wedged in the cracks,  which mielit injure the saws used in  cutting  them;   that   in  many  cases  they are  partly decaved;  that  they  are dried  out. and   that their  fibre .-  is .more cr less crushed, so that they  burn   out' too   quickly.    These    are  among the reasons assigned by deal-  or������ who have not been willing to pay  the    railroad    company,  enough    to  cover the cost of collecting the ties  and  delivering  them.to  a  point  at  v l':fh' they could be removed.  1    "Efforts  have-aiso'been  made  to  r'ispose of old  ties  in a  number of  othrr wavs- including sale for. wood-  ���������:, S purposes, for the extraction of  .���������h*T?ica!?, .for  burning and sale  of  :> 'ashes   for   fertilizer,,  and   for  ���������  ^nufaeture into.charcoal, but witn-  \ jfsuccess in interesting parties en-  '������������������-">���������������. in^these occupations.  '" "The"Company will be glad to continue, and wherever feasible to ex-  ������������������end, the present practice of sealing  -id--ties to individual consumers for  '-n. minaUprices'at points where tbey  ^n~Wdelivered-without danger to  :;ie- purchasers anS' without costing,  ������������������^r:r collection,.' and -:. traMporJation,  -r-iore-'than  they are worth as fuel.
