The Mother country has  asked for bread and she has been given a gold-brick, says the  Financial Post. Canada with her millions, of acres of fertile  lands, awaiting only the developing activity of her people, has  failed to increase her acreage. She has failed the Empire, she  has failed her Allies and she has failed herself, for never was  there a better opportunity to serve the world; to earn fancy profits; to create private and national wealth to help reduce taxation  than there was in the increase of agricultural production, with  practically the whole world waiting to pay the price.  But while the war lasts and the demand for food stuffs continues there is little to be gained in regrets. The needs of the  Allies in 1918 promise to be even greater than they were during  1917. In England, they began in January and are preparing  ���������3,000.000 additional acres. There they have a capable executive as Minister of Agriculture.  In Canada, we are doing nothing nationally. Our Minister of  Agriculture has proved a failure. He is the victim of a system  that fills Cabinet positions with successful politicians, instead  of with successful executives. He is such a superior type of man  personally, that it pains us to bo compelled to draw attention to  his weakness as an administrator. But the situation is urgent.    The grain is needed.    The revenue is needed.  We want, and can get, 5,000,000 more acres under cultivation  this autumn for the 1918 crops. A new Minister of Agriculture  must be got at once.

These competitions are known as  the Canadian Bankers' Competitions" and are linked up with the activities of the Live Stock Branch of  the Dominion Department of Agriculture. Tliey represent ah effort to  increase interest in lives tock. and  constitute a' part of the active campaign for more and better stock inaugurated and carried on by the  Honorable Mr. Burrell through his  Department. The generous -suport  accorled to the movement by the  Canadian Bankers' Association, affords a practical demonstration of the  attitude of the banks towards the  live stock industry, and the active  participation of the Association in  this campaign is bound to strengthen  and create general interest in farm  live stock.  Canadian Bankers' Competitions  will be held at a large number of  shows this year, and the boys and  girls should lose no time in finding  out all about them. The calves and  pigs must be fed at least six weeks  by the boys and girls who exhibit  them, so that it is very important to  act promptly in securing a copy of  the rules and other information.  Full information regarding the  competitions can be obtained from  the Manager of any Bank in the locality where a fall fair is held.  8  IR. RICHARD  PASSES AWAY  British Columbia's Most Gifted  Son Passes Away in London  ���������Funeral May Be At Government's .. Expense ���������Notable  Career.  Mr. Duncan A. Hamilton secretary  of the Automobile Association of B.  C, with headquarters at Hotel Van- (  couver, and Mr. Harris of the Motor-'  ist paid the district a visit coming the  north shore road and returning by  the south���������taking in the whole of the  All Red 'Route.  Victoria, Aug. 7.���������The announcement of the death in  London of Sir Richard McBride..  agent-general, came yesterday  as a great shock to the capital  city where for years he had resided, represented it in the legislature and through his noted  career in the provincial political arena brought honor upon it.  Immediately the cable from  Hon. J. H. Turner, acting agent  general, telling of Sir Richard  McBride's death was received  by Hon. Dr. Maclean, provincial . secretary, an informal  meeting of the three ministers  of the cabinet now in the city,  Hon. Dr. Maclean, lion. John  Hart and Hon. J. W. DeB. Far-  ris, was held. -It-was'decided  to instruct Hon. Mr. Turner to  take charge of the funeral arrangements in London on behalf of the government. Lady  McBride and family leave London immediately and will bring  back the bod}'.  It is expected that a public funeral at the expense of the province will be held. It is known*  that Sir Richard, in the later  days of his illness, expressed  the desire that in the event of  his death his body should be"  brought back and interred a-  lonsgide that of his father at  New Westminster.  Many have been the expressions of regret from our public  men at the death of Sir. Richard  McBride. Mr. Bowser, a lifelong friend says:  "The death of Sir Richard, who  served his native province so faithfully and long, will be universally  regretted."  Mr. Bowrser stated that while the  serious condition of the health of Sir  Richard was known, it had been the  sincere hope of his friends that he  would have returned to British Columbia and here recover his health.  It was their hope that the change  would have helped Sir Richard, and  at least that he would have been  spared to spend some years in the  province for which he labored so  faithfully, and where he possessed a  host of friends and admirers.  "Our friendship has been one of  years' standing," said Mr. Bowser.  "We first met in 1887 when as  boys we entered the Dalhousie law  school; then we established a friendship which has continued throughout. When I came west to Vancouver in 1891 Sir Richard was then  studying law in New Westminster. In  1903 I ran as one of his candidates  in Vancouver, when he first became  premier and declared for party lines.  Ever since'I'was associated with him  in the legislature until his retirement  in December, 1915, when he became  agent-general of the province at London. For nine years I had the honor to serve in his cabinet as attorney  general.  "In the death of Sir Richard McBride, British Columbia loses her  most distinguished son, a man of  most liberal disposition, big-hearted  to a degree, and ��������� one whose name  will rank at the very top in the development of the province, a- work  that will undoubtedly be more appreciated in the future than perhaps  it has been in the past.  "In him British Columbia developed an empire-builder of outstanding ability, and it is to be more  deeply regretted that "he should have  passed away at so early a period in  life, when, had he maintained his  health he would undoubtedly have  made his mark in the broader Imperial sphere for which hiss talents so  eminently fitted him.  "In his death British Columbia  suffers a loss that t will be keenly  felt. I am sure ���������' that at this time  political feelings will be forgotten,  that British Columbia, irrespective  of political faith, will deeply-regret  the death of one whose heart and  effort'was directed to the welfare of  the province." -��������� ���������  Mr. Bowser feelingly referred    to  the hope often expressed by Sir Richard that he would, in his position as  agent-general,   be   in   a   position   to  still further advance the interests of  the province.       Ho also referred to.  his good work among the men from >  British  Columbia  on  active  service,  .who ever, found, in. him,a f.riend.and _  counsellor, and  many of v/honi    he  assisted in numberless ways. "Whenever a man needed a helping hand he  was one of nature's noblemen," declared the leador of the opposition,  "large-heartod) kind, and tempering'  all his business and social relations  with courtesy and refinement.  Notable Career of Sir Richard  Richard McBride was born In the  city of New Westminster on December 15, 1870, the son of. the late  Arthur H. McBride, formorly warden  of the Peniteniary. He was educated in the public schools and high  school of New Westminster, and at  Dalhousie University, Halifax, from  which he graduatted in 1890, with  the L. L. B. degree. Two other  New Westminster men went with him  to Dalhousie, His Honor Judge How-  ay and Mr. R. L. Reid, K. C. " Returning to New Westminster he entered the law firm of Corbould &. Mc-  Coll, but later formed a partnership  with Mr. W. J. Whiteside. During  the few years that he practised law,  he was regarded as a man possessing  marked ability, particularly in criminal cases, but it was not long before  he plunged into the maelstrom of political life. In the Dominion general  election of 1896, he was aiding the  campaign of the Conservative candidate, Mr. Atkinson, against Mr. Justice Morrison, when Mr. Atkinson got  cold feet and withdrew. The nomination was offered him, and he willingly jumped into the breach, but despite his undoubted popularity he  went down to defeat with his party.  Two years later he was again in the  field, this time as a candidate for  Dewdney, in the provincial election,  and this time successfully. Re-elected  in 1900, he was appointed minister of  mines in the Dunsmuir administrat- . .���������.  ion, but he resigned the portfolio in  September 1903, because he could  not see eye to eye with his leader,  who had formed a coalition with Mr.  Joseph Martin and Mr. J. C. Brown,  naming the latter, who had been minister of finance in the previous administration, provincial -secretary.  From then until called upon to form  a government in June. 19 03, he ���������as  an effective leader of the opposition  through the balance of the Dunsmuir  regime and that of Col. Prior.  Until this time, provincial politics  in British Columbia knew, nothing of  (Continued on Last Page) o  ' m  fill!] ABHOl'SlFOKD: POST, ABBOTSFORD,  ti.  o.  ^a:i������i ai������m  .,,'j.m.

The delegates  appear to be a different bunch of men than  ��������� the delegates to the Abbotsford <��������� Liberal convention held last month.    Some there expressed doubt that Sir Wilfrid would be the leader  of the Liberals, in the next   parliament.     All  did not appear to have the same confidence in  Laurier as the Vancouver Sun says the delegates to the Winnipeg convention have.   And  there is this difference, the delegates to the  Abbotsford convention were men and women  for the most part whose one idea was 'to, win  the. war' and for the time being leave politics  aside if necessary.    The win the war was the  one theme of that convention,���������many of them  have a son or sons at the front.   They are a  great deal more interested in the war than in  politics.    Can the same be said of Wade of the  Sun and his followers?  Has Barrow or Munro gone to the convention to support Wade in boosting for Laurier?  If ever there was. a time in the.history   of  Canada, when politics should be laid   to   one  side and leaders chosen whose sole aim will be  win the war not political gain, it is now.   Win  the war. should be the one important business  of Canada today, not politics.        There surely are men in Canada���������born leaders���������who can  be^ chosen- to form a government, who would  be: satisfactory to both sides and who would  step down and out after the war   is   settled,,  thus not giving either side any political gain  in the after-the-war election,when politics can  be.taken up again.

But when  that stock arrives the program  for- getting rid of it fast is all  complete.  When 1 knew him first he was  a clerk in a general store.. The  departments he worked in included groceries, boots, crockery, wall paper. That young  fellow was of Irish extraction���������  energetic, keen-witted, ambitious, soft-spoken, pleasant. His  boss was smooth, and a master  merchant.  "One day. this young fellow  and another started in business  for themselves, There were no  delusions. They knew that they  had'to work,and they did work..  "The world loves workers;  and people like to shop in busy-  stores. These young fellows  succeeded.  application of excess-profits tax and  settlement of Government's attitude  toward price fixation. And these are  inter-dependent..  Business captains expect to pay big  excess profits taxes. But they do ask  how is it possible to collect i?70'0,000-  000 to'$1,000,000,000 in excess profits taxes and follow a policy of rigid  price fixation. Business leaders contend that. Government officials have  not yet awakened to the fact that  this ,is a 'national war,- not a party  war; that patriotic efforts of business,  men have been for the country, not  because of any particular love for the  Administration.  It is because of failure of Government leaders to grasp fundamentals  of industrial situation that many industrial captains are doing little or  nothing. They are unwilling to expend Stockholders money for expansion unless it is clear they arc to be  allowed a fair profit, and a fair profit for L9L7 is measured in terms,that  in 191.2 would have seemed fabulous  It is realized that things in Washington are in as fate of considerable  chaos.

No election run and won on political lines  can possibly form a government at Ottawa  that will formulate a win the war policy that  will meet with the approval of men and women  who have sons and relatives at the front fighting'. There are three parties in Canada at the  present time. > The Liberals and the Conservatives- and the win the war party. The next election will return candidates of all parties and  no one of these three will be able to form a  policy that will meet with the approval of. a  majority of the people.  We might be able to do without both Borden  and Sir Wilfrid and yet win the war.  A delegation went from the western prairies  to instruct Laurier as to his policy in the South  African war. Surely the ideas of the west and  the English-speaking population of Canada  have not changed since then? Can picked delegates to a Winnipeg convention fromulate a-l  policy that will blind the Liberals of Western  Liberals to their duty at the present day? We  hope not.

The two things, we most need in  our public men.    Suppose we figure-his dollars and cents value  to Canada, as Director of Immigration.    Put it on a commission  basis.    Take only his last year in office. . That year his efforts  brought us 402,432 settlers.    A settler is said to be worth $100U.  Therefore, in one year only he increased,  by his efforts, the  wealth of the country, $400,000,000.

Towards the end  of the week they began to show  mold and were considerably  packed. While, we held to to  $2.50 we had to reduce to $2 on  many sales to have the retailers  keep them. And some had to  be sold with the least possible  delivery. So made our sales  run about half at the one price  and half at the other.

Let  it not be said next summer that we have again failed, m our  national and world duty, by procrastination.  The Minister of Agriculture need not be a trained agriculturist In Ontario we find that Hon. Mr. Hearst as director of  agriculture, has done more in the short time he has held the  office than the well-intentioned, but helpless political minister  at Ottawa during his term.  SIR CLIFFORD'S CASH  VALUE TO CANADA  We have to thank Providence for Sir Clifford Sifton. On  several occasions we have used him as an example of what  cppable man could do as a Cabinet Minister. We showed that  as Minister of Interior, he organized, personally directed, and  carried out the greatest immigration campaign in our history;  and that our immigration fell, off when he retired. On Feb-  uary 20, 1915,'THE POST showed that, in 1896, when Sir  Clifford Sifton came in, our immigration, had dwindled to 16,-  836 In 1897 we had, under him, the first increase in five  years.    It grew steadily until 1912, when we had 402,432. When  he retired, it began to decline.  Sir Clifford has enjoyed a well-earned leisure ever since.  Now the demands of the country has led him to, once more, devote his great ability to the public service���������usually a thankless  job. He is primarily aiding in organizing in support of the  conscription of fighting men. Undoubtedly, he will accompany this, with a conscription, of other big men like himself,  for a reorganized Cabinet���������a Cabinet of the best brains in the  country���������not a union or coalition Cabinet of professional politicians.  The National Department that needs the ablest man in the  country today is Agriculture. It needs Clifford Sifton. We  submit his name to the Prime Minister.  The one thing urged against Sir Clifford ist hat he made  ROAD BULLETIN  There is a great diversity of opinion as to which is the best road ac  the present time between here and  New Westminster���������the north or the  south side of the river.   -  This week the editor of this paper  travelled over both and he thinks the  north side takes the cake for having  more good road and more bad road  than the south side of the river; but  the south side of the road is about  of an even kind of road���������that is  medium���������none of it first-class and  none of it real bad.  Between here and Abbotsford the  road is good but there has been so  much gravel put on at different parts  of the Yale road that none of it can  be caled pleasant motoring.  The north side of the road as far  as Haney is real good and the best  of time can be made on it, but from  Haney to Mission is a disgrace to  any community in these days when  the question of good roads is so much  in demand. That Silverdale Hill is  a pippin with its crushed rock at the  upper part of the hill.  Great credit is due to the man who  looks after the road between the ferry and Abbotsford as he understands  his business and without doubt that  is the best part of the round trip.  From Haney to Mission City looks  as if the government did not give a  continental whether any person ever  travelled ovor it or not or any person lived along the road. By next  spring it will be a complete wreck if  something is not done. With the  new surtax there should be abundant  opportunity to spend a little on this  road. >  Such a country road gives the district through which it passes one of  the blackest eyes that it is possible  to give any district. That part of  the district gave the Dewdney member a good majority last election and  the present state,of the road shows  just how much he appreciates it.  party lines.

It was in  these years and under his able leadership that British Columbia experienced its greatest era of expansion in  every direction.    In  1912     he    wasi  made  a.
