AiBUOTSFOKD-ASAC.K-NTFUM'O'.ltlJUSIJNKSS  AM) INDUSTRY  IS  FRASER  VALLEY  Situated about half way between New Westminster and the  city of Chilliwack, Abbotsford commands a most excellent situation for business and all kinds of industry. ' The opening for a  good sized low nis here, all thaUs required is to pull and work  for the future of Abbotsiord���������a. strong pull and a" long pull and a  pull altogether is all that is required to make'the old town boom  along. Everything else is here, I here is nothnig wanting except the energy .of the "citizens of the community to make Abbotsford a centre.-that no one of, the old timers ever dreamt,  of. At present. Abbotsfprd is a good centre for all kinds of  business.but is not half what it should be and can be if Abbotsford had all that was coming to.it.  Our shipping facilities, our educational facilities, our agricultural lands in the surrounding district are all here. Let us boost  them along, and make the old town hum. We have the C. P.?-R-  which is a branch line six miles to the lriaiu line of the.C.P. R.  at Mission Junction; the Great Northern, to connect with:, the  coast cities and with the big railways of*the United States"?--the"  B. C. E. R. which gives excellent direct service with the coast  cities and Chilliwack; and not far away, about three miles is  the Canadian National main line and the Fraser River, which is  navigable for considerably further up the river than Riverside  north of Abbotsford. All kinds of shipping facilities are here  ready to take care of all that is produced in the town or.district.  There is plenty of cheap .power: both the B. C. E. R. and  the Western Power Company of Canada are here for business.  Cheap power for manufacturing purposes can be secured, which  is quite an item that intending manufacturers should not overlook, when wishing to locate in'an interior town of the Fraser  Valley. i    t .  Several industries have ..already been established .which are.  tributary to the business interests of��������� the town. One of these,  and a very important one is the Abbotsford Timber, Mining and  Trading Company, which ship all their lumber from the Abbotsford station, except what is taken away in big trucks to other  towns in the Fraser Valley. The company employ a very large  number of men and the best of wages.are always paid; and last  but not least is, the products of the big mills are very much in  demand on account of the superiority of its grade. The Clayburn Brick and Clay Works are close to hand as also is the Kil-  ��������� garde, the products of both are much wanted articles on the  market today, taking second place to none. The big Fraser Valley Milk Condensory was opened on Monday and it is expected  that shortly its product will be on the market, with quality and  grade superior to much of its kind and second to none. The capacity of this institution is almost limitless, having an ideal situation and of modern construction. There are a number of small  mills and shingle mills within short distances of the town all  of which help to swell the business of the merchants and banks.  Abbotsford has its two banks, three general stores, hardware store, bakery, grocery stores, transfers, a drug store and  grain stores, and all that goes to make up a good-business centre.  A perusal of our pages will show the more progressive of these.  Abbotsford schools have always been noted for the excellent  work done by the teachers and pupils. The first and second year  high school work can be taken up, and there is talk of establishing a high school, and it is only a matter of time until owing to  the very great need of it the high schol will be established. During the year J.920-21 the teachers will receive a very great increase in salaries, which notes the progressive spirit of the people. Next to the schools come the churches of the town, where  services arc held every Sunday.  The interprovincial automobile route will pass through  Abbotsford. There used to be a saying on everybody's lips a  few years ago,���������before the war; now the town is beginning to  waken up again and there is talk of incorporation.  The climate of the surrounding district has a most wonderful effect on the soil, making it very productive. General farming, dairying and fruit growing are carried on with great success.  An'indication of the importance of the dairying industry may  be seen in the fact that the Fraser Valley Producers selected Abbotsford as the site for their condensory- Small fruits are  grown most successfully in the district. Nine acres were sold  a few days ago for $11,000 which did not incude the estimated  crop this year of about $7,000. Within recent years, now that  more up-to-date methods of sliipping'~"are to be had men ar*  finding that the land to the south west and north is most ex-  KOAltl) OF TRAT)E HAS  INTERESTING  MEETING  > The regular monthly meeting of  the Abbotsford, Board of Trade, was  held in 'the G.yW.

Arhur Meighen makes a  strong plea for a better'.understanding  between the two races in Canada.  They are both here'to stay. They must  get along together somehow." They  should refrain from continually  trampling.on each oner's toes.  The new Premier's perception of  the desirability of better relations between the French and English in this  ' county may well be quickened by the  fact that he has now only three supporters from Quebec and that therefore any change is bound to be for an  improvement, jso far as he is concerned.  Nevertheless, he is quite right. Nothing is to be gained by further discussion of who was; right or wrong on  the conscription issue. Neither side  will yield its point of view, and the  war Is over anyway. If Canada is to  prosper, she must look to the future  and not' to the past.  If a word of advice may be offered  one great .source of friction would disappear if-the French Canadians would  quit"reading those of the Ontario  newspapers which represent the narrow and nasty strain of sentiment  p'revaiUng is some sections of that  province., The school question, or rather tho language question, should be  settled by an acknowledgement that  one portion of Canada is French and  the other English, and that both intend to remain so.

And so on through all business  concerns. Earning power is recognized. Whether he gets too little or  top much it is not necessary to consider on the present occasion.  When a, man gets a government job  things are different. Earning ability  does not come in. Jt is conceivable  that nn employee, accustomed to the  profit and loss view of a business  firm, feels, when he gets a government appointment, a certain sense of  lassitude. The urge of a commercial  concern Is absent. It is true- that in  Homo government departments, notably tho post office, most of the employees earn their money. The necessity of'each doing his bit to earn a  profit for his concern is replaced by  th'e necessity of getting the mail bags  oft {n time, and attending t the multi-  been received from the King's printer  considerable progress was made during the first five months of the "department's existence, the period covered terminating at the end of 1919  The organization of the department  is extremely simple. It consisft: of a  head, the Premier; a deputy head, the  Industrial Commissioner, Major Donald B. Martyn; and an advisory board  of seven who act without pay. The  members of the council or board are  Major R. J. Burde, M. C, M. P. P.,  Port Alberni; F. G. Dawson, Prince  Rupert; A. C. Flumerfelt and Joshua  Kingham, Victoria, B, C; J. H. Mc-  Vety and Nicol Thompson, Vancouver  and J. E. W. Thompson, M. P. P.,  Phoenix.  As to the modus operandi, the commissioner investigates all applications  and makes recommendations to the  council. The applications, the report states, are considered entirely on  their merits. There are no rules as  to percentage of loan sought in relation to capital. The rate of interest  is six per cent plus adidtional-".barges  involved. After all conditions have  been complied with payments are  made on vouchers showing that the  money is being used in accordance  with tho purpose for which it is loaned.  The report notes that very early it:  its 'existence the advisory council decided to limit its field to industrial  undertakings proper and to make no  loans in connection with wholesale or  retail businesses or others strictly  .commercial enterprises. This \j|i 'limited a number of application:} at the:  outset* In all 19 applications were  granted, and loans amounting to  $'442,200 approved during the closing  months of lapt year.
