The learned judge  stated that Japanese have no power  to divest themselves of Japanese allegiance.  Foreigners coming .to Canada to  make their home here tor a, few years  should not ask that they be made citizens of a country that is' only a temporary residence, or until such time  as they are ready to retire to their  own home country and Japanese are  not the only foreigners to.whom naturalization papers should not be issued to. No naturalization papers  should be granted to any but. lho  Anglo Saxon  race.  In the country to the south of us'  there has been'in the past naturalization papers granted to almost every knowrrrace, except the Oriental,  and it is a hard country to make laws  for���������laws that will be obeyed.

They are aliens..  by birth and also by adoption and ncv  er can be-made anything else, except,  by.force. .

An agricultural representative oL  the Danish government*.made a statement recently that ought to make us,  Ihink, particularly when we considsr  its source. This representative was  speaking to a convention of America i  farmers. .. <   ^  "We in Denihark- have    learned,  he said, "that if farmers    would cooperate successfully,  - they must cooperate even when it does not pay." *'  Something to think-about there all  right. Those folks', in Denmark have'  been co-operating in their" various  farming activities for-fifty years or  more., They have brpught co-operation probably, to the highest state ot  perfection of any other- group of  folks. >They have been; at it longer.  But tliey are still learning, and'that*  Is why* their representative Is In.America now: '*���������;���������,  Illustrating his statement this Danish co-operator- described how the  first -co-operative creamery in Denmark as started and. .operated for'  years against-the competition'of private creameries offering a higher  price for milk. But the farmers kept  right on with their co-operative sell--'  ing.    What, was the result?,  The co-operative dairy industry in  Denmark today is probably the most  highly developed and the most p'rof-  Itahlo in the world. Tliey wur-j right  and I liny knew. it,. The tiling that  made their co-operative efforts* unprofitable at th.? star.t was r-ot.a fault  of their plant.. The fault lay in a'  temporary condition,:.;,-which they  eventually wore down;,      , -',  This temporary condition was the.  result of active opposition of ' estab-v  lished interests with .whose business  the producers were, seriously inter-'  fering. Those interests'saw the coT-  operative- system would' eventually  take,from* their .profits "and pur  diem in the pockets of the producers  themselves. '"...-   ���������  They won out after,;, sevoral years  of competition against', higher prices,  and they feel that, the, victory"-has  been worth many.tildes.the cost.; We"  need not flatter - "duf.selves that our  path is going to be smooth from now  en:" "'      ,  There will be continued opposition-  of one kind or another \ probably for  several years,-but, like the XJanes, we  can win out in the ondj, just by co-operating - anyhow���������even.,.- .when it;  doesn't pay���������because'we know -from  the experience of "other producers.  that in the end- it; does-pay and pays  so well tha]Ltli|BL..istnj^gle;jis=-"-more  than worth- while. -'  'V .-'        ,    l<r,' ���������  NashTnterests  To Handle Crop  VANCOUVER, April 1 li.���������Following a week of negotiations    between  berry-growing and selling organization of the province, a decision has  been reached to let this year's crop of  strawberries,- raspberries, .loganberries,-blackberries and cherries to the  Mutual .'(Vancouver) Limited, which  concern represents the big Nash fruit  interesls-^of Minneapolis, which  maintains a chain.of thirty-five jobbing houses on the Canadian prairifj  as well as brokerage offices at Calgary, Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon  and Winnipeg.

He  stated, also, that this concern would  also handle t-heiHood River strawberries-this season which- will be on the  market slightly-.in advance of "the B.  C-berries, as well as the raspberries  of Puyallup.    -,  v Mr. Geo. L.

Theiamount involved in the marketing^ of;the.,'crop would-be well over  $500,0,00, he stated. '.He was of the  opinion that the increased - acreage  t-his-'year on strawberries would go  a long: way in- offsetting the damages  rbyV-frost last winter, and that the  ���������yield of raspberries-would be greater.  Thirteen Planks  Of Farmer Party  The platform for the new- party  comprises thirteen- planks, as follows:  1. We believe in the principles oi"  organization and education in true cooperation.  2. Rigid economy in the expenditure of all public moneys, and a thor-,  oughly impartial"investigation of the  Pacific Great Eastern Railway question.  . 3. The abolition of the system   of  party patronage.  4. A uniform freight, express, and  passenger rate throughout .Canada, i  .  5. Establishment of a rural credit  system. .   '  ?'\  6. A uniform system of road building and maintenance.  7. The conservation ��������� and-deyelop-;  ment of the natural resources, of the"  province for the people, such as   reforestation of land unfit for agricultural or graining purposes, conservation ot" water powers, etc'  8. An equitable basis of assessment  and  taxation.  9. We advocate a strict.policy of  Oriental exclusion, the debarring o2  all Orientals from owning land or  leasing lands, and the bringing "o;:  pressure to bear on all civil authorities to enforce the laws and building bylaws to raise the standard - of  living'of the Oriental.  10. That not government-can be  considered defeated except by a direct vote of want of confidence.  ,,  11. We favour the principle of-direct legislation. .  12. Owners of idle lands should'-be  obliged to file a'selling price on their  lands, that price   to be   .regarded :aa-  the assessable value for purposes"' of  taxation.  ] 3. Education���������(a) Provide as far  as' possible equal opportunities for  all the people by extending and improving educational.facilities; (b) a  better distribution of the cost of  education over the whole world.

No fewer than thirty-nine gowns
are worn by Miss Elsie Ferguson,
impersonating a Russian actress in
"Footlights," a, Paramount .picture
which comes' to the Abbotsford Theatre Saturday, April 22nd,- (to-night).
Dainty morning dresses, luxuriant
gowns for afternoon and evening, filmy negligees and daring sport costumes constitute her wardrobe ;ii
this splendid production.
Miss Ferguson, who has-been term-
sons to lose her identity in Liza Par-
an on the screen, considers this one
of the most delightful roles of her
career. "The gowns have helped me
in my interpretation," Miss Ferguson
said, "just as they helped Liazie Parsons to lose her identity in Liza Pdr-
sinova. My only regret is (hat--.the
audiences will not have an opportunity to see the exquisite coloring of the
gowns." ,.'.  '    ���-������.*
As Liza Parsinova, Miss Ferguson
wears the creations of the most prominent mo.distes .of Paris and America.
Beside .being the last ..word, in-fashion, they have, the added interest
of having a Russian note. Everyone
of the thirty-nine changes from t'vi
silver cloth and pearl evening dress,
to the velvet bathing suit, are prig
inal in design and unique ::i treat:

Boxing Tournament
A Big Success
(Front Fraser Valley*'Record)
The,boxing tournament, under the
auspices of the Mission City Athletic Club.,on Friday evening last, .provided an enjoyable evening's, entertainment for those present, the different events being carried through
without a hitch' and with, the best of
good-feeling.   ^  .
The opening affair was between
Murdock Beaton and Alvin ..Hughes,
two local lightweights. Both' boys
gave the fans lots' -of action. Tho
second bout was in the nature of a
liovelty attraction between Lome
Hughes and Bill Sharpe. In this
bout the boxers .were blindfolded and
for three.rounds kept the audience la
roars of laughter with their amusing
antics'.       ���' ��� ' '   '.   '':    < -.-��� : ���
Te third .bout was "between Norman Elliott and Abbott Wilson, two
local youngsters,, in the 100-pound
class, both of whom, gave evidence of
considerable training. Tliis was-probably the most attractive outside of
the main event.
John Galliford and Angus McLean
furnished the fourth bout, but tho
boys' were suffering from slight.- in
juries, which prevented them giving,
of .their best.' ..Billy Beaton'and-Roy
Solloway provided the fifth'Vand
last. ��� preliminary;., ;��� Judging froin
his exhibition, Solloway is ahoy who
is at .present, out ot condition,. >-l)ut
���with'a li|.tle experience and propor
training would prove ii hard nut-for
the local boys to, handle. Beaton possesses speed and a ,good punch aud
the bout.was perhaps the most evenly contested of the preliminaries.
The last event was, the star feature
of the evening and was a four round
exhibition bouti between ,, "Rough-
house" Charlie Burns, light weight
campion of B. C. and Jack (Scotty.i
Leonard, trainer, for the Mission City
Club. In this fast exhibition of clever boxing, "Scotty" .shawed himself
to be a real artist with the gloves',
and kept the champion on the move
all "the time, especially in-the third
and 'fount, rounds when he display
ed some exceptionally/ clever work
which was greatly., admired, by the
fans present.  '      -'" i
