Limited  ABBOTSFORD'S "STORE OF QUALITY''  aimuH  Miwu������aiia������m������ I  piGffl'TWO',  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  Published : Every Friday _  J. A. BATES, Editor and .Proprietor  FRIDAY^ AUGUST  11,  1922  ���������UK.  Politically the province,,may expect  anythlng-at the hands of the present  government iu the- way ,. of surprises,  and no surprise is" to great to. bring  on the people of B. C'\ The latest  surpriseto the people from the hands  of Premiei1 Oliver is his announcement at Nelson that the report of the  eminent engineer Sullivan was that  very little hope could be held out  that the P. G. E. would, ever be a paying concern. Consulting and files  of this paper we find that through its  columns the Minister of Railways of  this province was told many moons  ago. 01- course he would n'ot take our  word for it'but kept on "spending his  millions.: The lure of spending those  millions was too great for the Delta  farmer who'since 1900 has been talking in millions, when referring to  the government  money.  But if -we remember correct!}  when Mr. Oliver was first minister of  rail ways' he was'going,, to, build this  railway for less than . the contract  price of the Conservative government  with-Foley, Welsh & Stewart. Was he  not going to have Stewart brought  back, from the battlefield for wrong  doing in connection with the contract.  But they could not stop the war���������  the Germans .would not delay their  marching and Stewart, who was doing-a good work at the front could  not be spared, or perhaps something  spectacular would have,, been the result.;'T  "'''  The probable only reason that the  P.-G.' E. will not ever pay for years  is that Premier Oliver and his government delayed the construction, of  it-too long,:-'and.let-the.Grand Trunk  get properly' established', delivering  the traffic to Prince Rupert.  ������������������'-' -Many years- "agawhen. the Klondike  rush was on the. dominion government'passed a bill'to:: have a, road  built.;from Vancouver to the Klondike'." The'senate'threw, the.bill- out,  stating that the .road' could not be  completed before, the gold, rush  would, be over. The. P. G. E.had it  been completed,seven or eight, years  ago might have had a better ..chanee  of being a paying ."concern, but it has|^  not -been'completed,soon enough.  :' It is'a strange thing that one who  has severely criticized other governments'in "regard: to their railway policy .should;:throw up-, the sponge on  the only railway proposition that his  government had undertaken.  /^Liberal propaganda is,-working  overtime these days and nights just  before, trie Conservative "convention to  be "held." in . Vancouver. Whether  Bowser is elected ahead of the party  or hot we venture "to say that the  big .club will not be' much in evidence  as' iV is reported "to have been- on another occasion this year when some  Liberals met .at. Victoria.  The'question ofleadership to the  Cons'er;vativ(e\patty" is| really not such  an" important' matter" at the ' present  time as some people would have it be.  The leader of the party now at Victoria ..will, undoubtedly lead the opposition at the" next "session, no' matter  what the results of the voting may  be.   ' ' '  -It is not likely,that any'of the Liberals would resign to enable Tolmie,  Stevens or any other Conservative  leader-an.opportunity to .sit in, the  house..the next session. But-probably  thVt is'"the-5"real reason 'for delay in  the filling of the seat in Vancouver.  Oliver;,is putting up a test-of strength  ji^'st before the convention, and , it  may be that if the Conservative's elect  afteader who has not a seat at Victor-  iar that he will immediately bring on  the Vancouver by-election to again  test the/strength. ;You know ."Honest  Jphn'' is really quite a. foxy politican.  : It is! good strategy on the part of  Premier Oliver to bring ,on the Cran-  brook'-'election "just .previous to. the  Conservative convention, as it will  keep Mr. Bowser away from the coast  foir a few days and give the other aspirants an opportunity to make good.  Is; it that or is it a sort of a left  h^nd kiridriess'to.W. J. Bowser giving  him a tour of the upper country, for  for the benefit of his health, so that  he may come back to the coast refreshed and ready to fight a good  fight for the leadership.  AMERICAN ROAD TAX MAXIMIZED  that the system of financing iir.ga-  tion across the line is much the same  as here, viz., water districts or municipalities, the money being raise'd by  bonds, which are in, turn guaranteed  by the government; but . with the  Americans" their districts include  frcfci 25,000 acre3 upwards, ; whereas i'n the Okanagan the districts  comprise'only from 2000 to 3000  acres, with ihe result that the overhead costs in the United States are  decreased "to a minimum.,the average  maintenance charge being $1.7 5  per acre.  Some idea of the size of American  irrigation projects may be gathered  from the fact that the "Horse Heaven  scheme" includes 300,000 acres, for  which the $80,000,000 bonds are  sold, .while the Columbia basin  scheme is one of one million acres,  which will take from fifteen to  twenty years to complete.  1 loads Excellent  The roads are uniformly excellent  all the.principal highways paved and  secondary roads covered with crushed gravel, giving hard driving surface. ,  Mr. Jones was impressed with the  universal enthusiasm and unfailing  courtesy which he met in his tour,  making particular mention ,of tho  ���������secretaries of the various chambers  of commerce \yith whom he came in  touch. However, he comes back more  than ever imbued with confidence  that as a place.of-residence, business  ���������or ranching tiie Okanagan val.ey  stands second to none.  $IlJ AB^TSfORD POS'T*  spot,,recognized as "the discovery,  proved later to be only a patch 20 it.  sq'uart. Carmack recorded his claims  and/the three claims located in ,the  names of his friends, Skookum Jim,  Indian Pete,, and Tagish Charlie. A  quiet "rush" began.' David. Mackay,  Daniel McGillivray and Harry Waugh  were the first to start. - Each of  them made a. fortune.,..The information did not reach the "outside,"  meaning the States, until the best  ground had been, staked; those ;who  came to Dawson with the stampede  at the end of 1897, and in the'spring  of 1898, found,that they'' were too  late: They, had-to' buy claims or  work for wages. On July 14, -San-  Francisco sailed home with, tidings of  h new Eldorada; in .proof thereof she  brought half a"' million dollars in  gold. This wa3 the first of many  treasure-ships to. enter the . Golden  Gate like Spanish galleons of; the old-,  en days.  S*MALL TOWN SPEED  LAWS ARE NECESSARY  Just why motorists who in theiir  home cities, recognize the necessity  of traffic regulations and speed lim:  its and expect to observe them,  should become possessed .with ��������� a  mania for 'burning up the road"  when passing through country to^wns,  and should resent ' efforts of small  town officials to interfere with them,  difficult to . understand. They  I want rural communities to construct  good roads for their pleasure and  benefit, but they discourage such  consideration and disregard of law.  It may give a motorists sense of  exhilaration to astonish the natives  ^by dashing through their town at  sixty miles an hour, but it certainly  is n poor nontrihntion to the movement for better' highways. Laying  aside the question of damage to the  roas', dwellers in small places have  children whose lives are as precious'  to them as are the lives of. city children, and if they are forced to make  choice between good roads and safety  for'their children they are very likely  to choose the lesser of the two evils  and let the roads go to pot.  Of the many thousands' of British  Columbia residents who own cars  and use .them to drive into the surrounding country, it is probable that  the heedless and reckless are in a  very .small minority, but the law.abidr  ing and considerate majority ars  made to ' suffer ���������for; the misdeeds of  the few.  TRUTH ABOUT THE  KLONDIKE. RUSK  EVERYONE  WANTS  AN     AUTOMOBILE  KELOWNA, August 9.���������Seen on  his return from a 1400-mile automobile trip, made'for the distinct pur-  post of studying the irrigation and  road systems, Mr. J. W. Jones, M. L.  Avi stated that He... had 'travelled  thorough thecBlowett and Snoqualihie  passes to Seattle, Tacoma, Olympia  a$d Portland, east to the Hood River  country, Golden dale, and the famous  Yakima" Valley, from Ellensburg  east through the dry farming area up  to"Wenatc!hee,and home Via Orpville.  ���������He "stopped not only in trie larger  centres, but at the smaller towns as  well, and held conversations with the  ranchers on the roadside, inoidental-  ly-rfinding the worst roads on the entire trip to be those from Oroviil* to  Penjtjct.on.^  Co'inparisonR Made  Mr.   Jones*    investigations   show  .'Gold dust worth $135,000,000 has  been taken from the creeks of... the  Klondike. Although 25 years has  elapsed, since the first discovery,, that  event is'recalled by the death recently of George W. Carmack, who .panned the first high-grade gravel from  Bonanza Creek. The details of the  discovery are related by a writer :n  the Engineering and Mining Jburnal-  Press of New'York: Carmack 'was  a fisherman, with an Indian squ*w,  and maintained a small trading-post  on the Yukon 20 miles above the  Crossing. He was not the first to  find gold in the valleys of the Klondike,' for Robert Henderson preceded him, but he started the stampede  that led to the development of the  Yukon territory. At that time Carmack was fishing salmon at the  mouth of the Klondike, where it  joins the Yukon and where Dawson  now stands. Two miles up the v<u-  ley the Klondike is joined by Bona/i-  za creek. Carmack happened to be  short of fresh meat, so he went with  three Indians, one of them a brother-in-law, on.a hunting expedition. At  that time Bonanza Creek was known  as a likely place for moosj, therefore,  lie went thither. He knew that Henderson and three other white rrieu  were mining on Gold Bottom, on the  other side of'.the '..watershed, so he  crossed.the divide with his' Indian  companions, to see what the others  were doing and to sell them some of  the fresh meat that he and _the Indians had obtained.  Henderson and his partners were  not getting much gold, and Carmack  soon returned to the camp on Bonanza creek. Having seen the mining  done by thef our men on Gold Bottom  he was prompted to do a little prospecting himself, and, almost at the  first try, found gold on the rim of  the bedrock projecting above...the  water of Bonanza creek,     This   rich  The merchant who is in the business of selling automobiles has ono  great advantage over all other merchants in .that it is not. necessary for  him to create in his' customer the desire, for his class of goods. There is in  every individual an inherent desire to  own an automobile���������it is the automobile dealer's job to turn that desire  to, his advantage by selling him on  his particular product.  Stand on any busy street corner  and ask the first hundred persons  you meet, who do not already .possess  automobiles, whether or not thev  would'like to have one, and their  answer'will invariably be "yes."  You will find this to be true even'  among those whose worldly possessions have thus far marie it impracticable for them to . buy a car. , Of no  other article of merchandise, outside  the bare necessities of life, is this  time. It isn't true of a watch, piano,  talking machine, cash- register, a  motorcycle or any other manufactured product.  This important 'selling advantage  of "inherent desire" in itself establishes the automobile as a vehicle of  utility indespensable to our very existence today. If it is true,,as'established by the National Automobile  Chamber of Commerce, that we increase our efficiency nearly 57 per  cent by the use of automobiles, then  who amongvus wishes,to appear backward? It is only natural to wish to  be. progressive and- to adopt those  conveniences.which, make our lives  more, valuable to .the community.

The new road will swing across  the Rocky mountain range by way of  Vermilion Summit, passing through  Banff/with a detour to Lake Louise  eh" route, thence down, through Kootenay Park to the 'Columbia valley,  and, following the Columbia, to the  International Boundary and by good  motor roads" to Spokane. At Pendleton it links up with, the Columbia  Highway .from Portland,.Oregon, and  'then drops down pist the eastern entrance of Crater Lake National Park  to'San Francisco and Los Angeles.  Travelling westward from Los Angeles the motorist may vist the Yos-  .emite,' Grant and Sequoia Parks,-pass  on the the Grand Canyon of Colorado  and proceed north to-the Yellowstone  and thence to the United States Glacier. National Park and the International' boundary, following the trail  to Cardston he may* make a short detour to Waterton Lakes in southern  Alberta and thence, via Lethbridge  and the Macleod trail return to Calgary-  Thousands of motorists, it is expected, will follow this scenic highway. American motorists will want  to come north and see the glories of  the Rockies; Canadian motorists will  want to see beautiful California and  the wonders of the. Grand Canyon and  the Yellowstone. This will mean an  international exchange of money as  important as many an, industry, as  well as increased international good  Will. '��������� Canadian authorities expect  there will be 10,000 cars at Banff the  .'first1 year.

PART Ol  GOOD CITIZENSHIP  TO OWN YOUR HOME  At this time, when building material prices are low, the thoughts of  the man of small income naturally  turn to possibilities of building his  own home.  From both the economic and ��������� social standpoint there is no more important question before the people  than the building of real homes.  Living in apartments is not cheap  and cannot be made so. Cheap living contemplates the family doing  for itself that it cannot do in an  apartment house.  An-apartment house or a flat is an  impossible place in which to raise  small children.  The public playground is a poor  substitute for one's own back yard,  properly equipped for the kiddies.  It should be the aim and ambition  of every man to o.wn his own home,  and it is the part of good citizenship  "to help in making that not only possible, but practicable.  Alex.. S.

Matsqui to Build
Permanent Road
- ' -:
There are 843 languages and, dialects'-In-use-among \" the;.', natives '>t
MATSQUI, Aug. 2.-���A method of
financing permanent road-building
was suggested to the council on Monday, which will be adopted on one
road as an experiment. ,
Convinced that this annual gravelling and patching leads nowhere the
councillors eagerly listened to tho
proposal of Carl Poignant, who owns
a rook crusher at Clayburn, and accepted the suggestion that a contract be let for the surfacing of Harris road with two layers of crushed
rock. This would make a permanent
��� road that'would need little attention
for many years.
The taxes of tho adjoining and
benefited lands (less overhead) are
to be pledged to the payment of this
contract for a period of five or seven
years, and the contract will lie paid
in five or seven annual installments.
The road will be built at once, the
people will have immediate benefit,
and the contractor will be able to use
the contract at the-bank as collateral
if necessary.
A petition is to circulate among the
interested owners at once, and the experiment will bo tried as soon as arrangements can bo made.
The sidewalk contracts in Mats'qui
village will bo begun at once by .Mr.
A. Nordecn,although the by-law must
bo changed. It is found necessary
to have separate by-laws, for each
sidewalk, and the tender must be divided to fit each. While these legalities are under way the contractors
will work on the pavement.
Mr. Nordeen and his neighbors
are interested in the old "Silent
Home" Cemetery, situated on the
high land south of Matsqui prairie,
which lias not been used -"for many
years. Bush has grown up in the
clearing, the lot fences have been
broken by cattle and fallen trees, and
a few graves are kept in order with
great difficulty.
If the council would pay for wire a
working bee would be organized ' by
both prairie and high land men to
clear up the ground and fence to- do
Representing' the Abbotsford, Poultry Association, Mr. W. George asked

A suitable dumping ground for Abbotsford rubbish must be found outside the townsite, and the recent understanding between the town and
the district will be settled when
Councillor Ware and the Board of
.Trade decide .on,a satisfactory site.
The 'question whether a man who
pays taxes    in    another    district    is
liable for the poll tax in .the- municipality in which ho is residing may be
settled in court, as ll. G. Myhre, who
paid his tax under protest, gave the
council ten days' notice that lie would
attempt to recover it if the council
did not refund within that time. The
municipal authorities are content to
let the courts decide. , '
Matsqui's share of the liquor profits amounts to 71)02.02, according to
the cheque recently received.

August 9.
Mr. and Mrs. J. A. H. Gray spent a
a few days in Vancouver recently.
A ratepayers' meeting was held in
Mt. Lehman, Aug. 2, to discuss with
the members,of the School Board the
high school situation in this district.
Before bringing forward the business
of the evening, Mr. R. Owen, as chairman, spoke a few words of appreciation of the late Mr. P. Jackman, who
had taken a great interest-in school
matters. He then outlined the school
needs of this part of the municipality
and" stated the trustees' plan was to
establish a one-room High school,
taking the three's years Avork, in the
neighborhood, of Dennison, and make
the-Superior School at Mt. Lehman
and Bradner graded schools. In this
way greater- efficiency in both High,
and public school work would be ob-'
tained with no greater expense. A
High School situated at Dennison
would serve for the Jubilee, Aberdeen
and Dunach districts as well. A resolution favoring the plan as outlined
by, the Board was made by. Mrs. Oswald and seconded by Mr. John Morrison. < Messrs. J. Taylor, Farber,
Powles, D. Nicholson and Mesdames
Lewis and Gamsby were among those
who discussed the matter and ' the
resolution passed unanimously. Matters incidental to school work and
equipment were also spoken of.
Trustees Conroy, Lancaster and
Merryfield addressed the meeting, expressing their appreciation of the
finding of those present and the en-
dorsation of their plans. The meeting closed with the National Anthem.
Mr. Carr, secretary of the School
Board, was secretary for the meeting.
Mt. Lehman residents have reason
to be proud of their school's success.

VANCOUVER, Aug. '7.���Mr. W.
J. Bowser is in Vancouver and
will leave this evening for Cranbrook
to campaign in the by-election. In a
statement he issued today, he dealt
with the coming Conservative convention to be held this month. He said:
"I have not very much to add. to
the letter which _ I forwarded to the
Conservative Association at Kam-
loops in April last, and which was-
given due publicity at that time ' in
the press ot the province, when I took
the position that as soon as the convention is called together the oid-Con
servative party will disapear and will
be amalgamated with .the National
Liberal-Conservatives and will be
known as the 'Liberal-Conservative
party.' With this amalgamation my
term as leader expires and it-will then
be for the convention to select a
lead for the new party.
"At the request of a large number
of my friends I have consented to allow my name to be put in nomination
for the position of leader of this new
party should they, in their wisdom,
taking into consideration my _< past
service and experience, think I ,am
the most likely person to lead them
in the future. If, on the other hand,
they choose someone else, I will give
to my successor the same loyal support I would expect from every member of the party should J be chosen.
"Considering^ the incompetent government which" we are now suffering
under whose mad career will soon
bankrupt this province, I feel that , it
is the duty of every good citizen to
join in the efforts of the new party, to
do everything in his or her power ,to
obtain a change of " government as
soon as the opportunity offers; and
further, the public can be assured,
whether I am elected leader or not,
there will be no one more unstinted "
than myself in my efforts to' remove-
from office the present administration."

Fruit selling prospects are improving, but B.r C. shippers are not alone  in competition for prairie trade. We  notice that Ontario is shipping in  plums' and tomatoes in volume, also  early'apples. This trade will be pushed briskly in the apple deal, especially in fall varieties.  W,e also notice the presence of several agents of Washington Co-operative concerns, and find that they are  booking' considerable business in car  lots of apricots, peaches, . plums,  prunes and apples.  The trade in discussing competition from Ontario and Washington.allege that B..C. quotation's are higher  than those of Washington especially  " in apricots, peaches and apples.' Our  Shippers will be well advised if they  etudy competitive-prices now quoted  ' and make sure that they do not underestimate the importance of meeting outside competition. If quick  action is not taken much of the avail-  ��������� able business' will be booked at outside points.  Apart from winter apples competition will be very keen and prices will  rule low.

Over 40 crates were forwarded to Winnipeg and sold as low  as' $2.00 per crate. The Logan is little known in Winnipeg, and in'Alberta and Saskatchewan it has been shipped in the flat hallock.

We consider that any color requirements would make a change in  grade names abortive. . We have a  ' standard pack and package in line  with our competitors and any slackness In enforcing a color requirement  of our competition will place us at a  great disadvantage at the selling end.  Of course the difficulty is in trying to  set a Federal standard. This is not  attempted in the U. S. Color and  grade are State, regulations not Federal. We doubt if a Federal requirement for color of apples can be made  satisfactory in Canada. Anything  short of the Washington color re-  quirments will not be of any value to  B.

Vancouver Market  The weather has continued dry dur  ing the past. week.-  Apples���������Supplies of Yellow Trans-  parents have increased in volume  with resultant lower prices. Prices  are about half of what they were a'  week ago.  Wenatchee, Chilliwack,. and the  Okanagan are the chief contributors.  Many Wenatchee shipments have  failed to pass inspection due to infes-.  tation with Codling Moth and have  been refused entry. Pears from "the  same source have come to grief from  the same cause.  Cherries���������A few "sweets" are still  in evidence and go out readily at  prices as listed. "Sours" are in  light supply being mostly Olivets and  Morellos.  Apricots���������This is the flush of the  season and all houses appear to be  handling large quantities'. The price  has dropped somewhat during the  week the general level being about  $1.35 as against $1.50 last week.  There is not much to be said against  the quality. Wenatchee is a heavy-  contributor to the supply.  Peaches���������The supply is increasing  rapidly, Wenatchee again being the  chief source of supply and largely  displacing the California product.  Prices have remained at practically  the same level as that of last week.  Tomatoes���������There has been a heavy  decline in the price of this product;  Sales were made today as low as  $1.25. This hothouse product has  declined correspondingly the price  now being $2.50 as against $4.00    a  week ago. ���������  New Potatoes���������Slightly lower than  last week. Practically no stocks are  carried, dealers buying as their needs  arise.  Carrots, Beets, and Turnips���������Have  fallen to lower, levels.   The. bunched  stuff has been largely   displaced by  the maturer sacked stock all of which"  is produced locally.  Cucumbers, Egg Plant and Peppers  ���������Show a wide range of prices varying according to size and quality.  Movement is very sluggish.  Eggs���������Remain at last week's level.  The market.seems to. have got Into a  rut and cannot be moved.  Poultry is unchanged, the supply  still being heavy enough to compel  storage.  ' Veal and hogs���������Are also unchanged.  Mr. and Mrs. H. A. Morgan are  leaving for Mr. Morgan's old home in  Kentucky, and on Friday evening  they were given a farewell at the  home of Mr. and Mrs'. Malcolm McGillivray at Huntingdon.  b .  The contract fo:r the new school  addition wil be let tomorrow and it  is expected that the trustees will  hear from Victoria at the beginning  of the week.
