The prize list of the 'exhibition will  amount lo about $ GOO; of which the  provincial government will give a-  bouc one-third and free judges with  their expenses. Last year the Mission council gave about $200 and on  Saturday att heir next meeting will  probably give another very generous  donation. Local donations will probably amount to about $150, while  the Valance will be made up of Ihe  membership fees and the entry lees.  From these sources those who exhibit will sec that every provision is being made for a successful exhibition  on September.Wednesday and Thursday the 18th and 19th.

Fooks  and Couns. T. .13. Straiton and G. E.  Austin in attendance with Municipal  Clerk Yarwood. The first proceeding  was   endorsation     of   the  resolution  drafted   by   the   Provincial   government, which pledge's British Columbia to a continuous participation in  the war of freedom and full support  of the Empire until the Prussian despotism  is  overthrown.     Sumas    has  given frely of its sons, and today sca-  cely a young man    is     to  be seen.  Strong expressions     of    disapproval  were voiced by' all attending council  equally with farmers throughout the  district,  at  the  conduct  of  those  in  Vancouver   who     had     sympathized  with   "slacker"   and   "law   breaker,"  who had met his fate whilst attempting to shirk his     duty  to King and  country. The general opinion in this  district is that the Dominion government should put down such disloyalty  with a strong hand. The resignation  of Coun.  Munro, who has left B.  C.  for  Saskatchewan,  and  Coun.   Lam-  son   were   submitted   and   accepted.  Accounts  were passed ' as    follows:  School board, $424.55; road improve  ments, .$2 50;     crude oil-for-use on  IFw   fflirih   Qt*hnfil 'stagnant water, as a preventative of  pqi idiga school.Lhe hreeAine Qc m  stalmcnt)    $120  I CD  I  losquitoes   (.1st in-  (I'-rom  the Fraser Valley llc.-orc!)  At the last meeting of the school  board it was decided te advertise for  an assistant for the Mission High  School, thus keeping up the staff of  the school to two teachers for the  coming year. This will meet with  the approval of a great many of the  ratepayers, as the past record of the  high school has shown that it has  been money well spent, and besides  educating the young men and  women who desire something more  than the public school, lies saved the  community money. Sending boys and  girls to high schools outside of the  district reminds one v-eiy.much like  sending to Eaton's for a new hat,or  coat; while jur.t as .good, an article  can possibly be gotten at home, it  is doubtful if the money ever comes  back to the "district again, and certainly none of it helps to pay  taxes.

"Barry" did not think all the fruit  growers would be    visited    by  Turnbull.  oho.      A difference of opinion exists  regarding the necessity or advisability   of   holding   fail's   while   the   war  lasts, and  if certain  prominent  men  had gotten  their, way al. Ottawa last  winter no fairs would have been held  in   any   part  of   Canada   during   fhe  current year. Tho argument put forward by those advocates of the wholesale adandonment of 'fairs, this  season was simply that raising a maximum   of  grain   to  feed   the  soldiers  and civilians in  the Allied countries  was absolutely imperative,, and that  live stock interests were only of very  secondary importance.    And furthermore,  that  fhor time and  money cx-  i.,51 ponded   in  preparing  and   exhibiting  animals at the fairs was just so much  time and 'money wasted:  Now, we'all admit the urgent need  for  every   Canadian   farmer  to   produce every bushel of grain he possibly  can  while  the   w;ar  lasts  and.  as  a  rule,   1  think  he  is   doing  so.  But while this  is undoubtedly     the  case,   there   is   another  side   to   the  question which is of almost equal importance,   and  which   should   not   be  overlooked.    It is a well known fact  that the world's supply ol: livestock,  particularly cattle, have been on the  decrease  very  seriously,  while     the  population   all   over',   this   continent  especially has gone    on    increasing  steadily.    When the war ends everybody  knows  that  the  present  high  price   of   wheat  is  bound   to -recede  enormously,   and   in   all   probability  hogs and sheep will' also  depreciate  in value to some extent.  ; Cattle will  doubtless   go  down  sympathetically,  but not to  the same extent  by  any  means,  because hogs and sheep can  be produced to a marketable age very  much quicker than cattle.       Horses  will retain their present values probably   much   better   than   any   other  kind  of stock-  for the same reason:  in fact, a substantial advance in tho  price of horses is    highly    probable.  And in view of conditions iu Phirope  now  and  prospectively,   the chances  are that this continent will be drawn  upon  quite extensively  for. breeding  stock to replenish the    studs,    herds  ���������and docks of the old world, now being so seriously and alarmingly  depleted.  Value oi! Competition  But the main    argument    for    the  continuance of the fairs and exhibitions if live stock, and it is one that  1  believe cannot be successively contravened, is the    unchallenged    fact  that  no   improvement   in  any   brqeel  has ever taken place .in any country  except as the result of    competition.  Where would the various  improved  breeds of horses,    cattle,    sheep    or  swine have  been  today without  tho  influence of  the competitive  fair  or  cattle show?       Or how    would     the  splendid achievements    of a    Seager  Wheeler, or a Nick Taitinger, in the  field of high class grain raising have  been   discovered   and   developed   but  for   the   competition   which   brought  those men to the front, both in Canada and the United  States. The  writer   is   old  enough   to   remember  fifty years back, where, in Scotland,  every district annually held its cattle  show, some of which were open only  to a few -parishes, others open  to a  whole county, and still  others open  to the United Kingdom.         At these  shows   or   fairs,   as   we   would   call  them, the keenest possible competition existed in every department and  the result, lias been an enormous improvement in the stock of every exhibitor, as well as the enrichment of  the individual breeder, and indirectly  the whole community.   It is true that  most of those Old Country agricultural fairs have lien cancelled'during  the last year or two, and will not be  resumed until the war is over, but it  must  be remembered  that  they  are  much   nearer.'the centre of   conflict  returned on  Fri-  months'   farming  He does not like  Huntingdon   and  Miss Miller who has been visiting  her mother and sister Mrs. MeKinnon  rolurnod to Victoria on Sunday to  reaume her nursing.

The time and money spent in fitting  and showing good stock is not wasted" by any means, ft is valuable  constructive, educational work, and  when judiciously done is alike profitable and beneficial to the exhibitor  and the district1 and province in  which he lives.  The real value of the fairs, therefore, is in bracing up the whole community to nobler efforts through the  more enterprising, progressive farmers in bringing together for competition and comparison all the best  specimens of the various breeds and  farm products in the district. The  rivalry which is engendered of necessity works improvement in a dozen  different ways. At this season it  should be the earnest endeavor of every agricultural society to conduct a  progressive exhibition, expanding  and educational in scope, free from  all objectionable features, and run  not in the interests of any individuals  but for the benefit of the whole community.  The Alberta Department of Agriculture acts more generously than  any other province in Canada in fostering and encouraging the district  fairs by providing first-class judges  for all the livestock free of charge,  and paying two-thirds of all the prize  money. Alberta, breeders should.appreciate this liberality and support  their respective district'fairs to .the  best of.their ability. The fairs all  need a little extra stimulation and  encouragement at the present.������������������time.  A few of fhe smaller fairs have dropped out this season for various reasons, but some new ones will take  their places, so that the total number in Alberta will be about one  hundred'as usual. Co-operation and  enthusiasm are most essential to  success, and these ought to characterize every farming community. And  remeber that the better the stock  wc raise the better chance is for  getting a share of the foreign trade  when it comes, as it certainly will do  and probably at no distant day. Farmers and breeders should trim their  lamps and be ready.  Matsqui Council  At the Matsqui council meting on  Saturday a communication from A.  J'.). ' Carwright, secretary of the  board of railway commisisoners, enclosed an order for the platform to  ho eroded at the Rotluff road, on  the C. N. R. for use in shipping  milk. The work was to bo completed within 30 days of the order. The  railway company had refused this  platform and it was brought before  the recent sessions ��������� of the board .  held in Vancouver.  A letter from H. Dawson, of Reiliy  Dawson & Reiliy, of Swift Current  Sask., acknowledging receipt of the  letter from the council in which it  was proposed to purchase a one-  acre gravel pit on the north end of  the east half of the N. E. quarter  of section 30, township 1C, for the  sum of $125. The letter stated that  it was not certain whether the title  was in the name of II. T. Thrift or  Charles E. Reid.  A.   H.   McNeill,   solicitor  for     the  Great Northern  Railway,   lorwarded  a copy of a letter being sent to tho  board of railway commissioners with  reference to Ross road crossing. The  Ross  road  crosses beneath  the railway track, there being a deep cut on  both sides of the track, and the municipality claims that    the    railway  company  should   put   tho  road   into  proper  condition   at   this  point.     As  according to the letter from the company to the railway commission the  former admitted that there was some  gravel on the road under the bridge,  but not in  any  such  quantity  as to  justify a  complaint.    The  bridge is  of three spans and  the slopes from  the embankment, on each side of the  bridge cause the road to be narrow,  in order to hold the toes of the embankment some more of timber bulkhead might be put in.    The railway  onrneer agreed to put in t.Vse bulkheads    under the    bridge.    Through  the cut, however, the latter claimed  the gravel came down as in an ordinary gravel  cut,    and  it was  not  caused  by an operation of  the railway.  Keeping this clear was an ordinary work  of  maintenance of the  highway, and  should   be  taken care  of  by  the municipality.  It  was  loft  wilh  Coun.   Melander  and  the  clerk  to send a reply.  The bad condition of a bridge over  a small stream on the Straiton road  was brought, to the council's attention in a letter from Donald McMillan, of Straiton. lie claimed that a  loose plank in the bridge had sprung  up and broken tho shafts and crossbar of a bu;:gy he had lent to some  one to drive to Mission. A similar  accident had occurred to another  man when be drove across the bridge  Counillor Phinney however had investigated the matter and found that  the bridge was on the Shearwater  Lumber Company'^ track, and that  the council was not liable for it.  The minutes of a special meeting  held in the reeve's office at Abbotsford on July 6 were confirmed.  The council passed a resolution approving and endorsing the petition  which is now being .circulated calling  upon the government to take steps to  prevent the growing danger of flooding in the Fraser Valley by reason  of tho denuding of the timber lands  by the lumber companies, and asking  for the removal of the clay bar at the  mouth of the river.

The matter will never be settled until one  road has been decided upon and the  government money spent on that  road wilh a view to making if n permanent one.  that one can expect o cmfv/yp i'i"  Automobilists generally ask for a  direct route from one point, to another. It aids rrafiic in many ways and  facilitates business. The beautier,  of ihe River road through Maple  'Ridge can never be denied, hut, for  a shorter route there is nothing to  compare with the plan suggested by  the .id-ion of Councillor Clark of Mission municipality who wants the  main road from ihe red bridge across  the Stave to continue northward a-  lcng the Stave to within a couple of  miles of tho Stave Falls when he  suggests that a cut off be made to  the Dewdney Trunk road. He has  had the endorsation of the Mission  council. The road foreman has also  inspected the grade in the cut off in  company wilh ��������� Reeve Catherwood  and Councillor Clark, but has not as  yet made his opinion public .regarding same, although Ave understand he  was favorably impressed, and intended to go further into. the matter.  With a little widening of the road  at tlie point where the old bridge a-  cross the Stave was this route could  bo made an excellent one that would  shorten the road to Coquitlam by a-  bout seven or eight miles, but would  not pass through Haney or Hammond  But along the Dewdney there are  very good brandies to both of these  towns.

Should the same progress of the  Allies be carried on and the. idea is  to "carry on" if is not likely thai the  war will last, as long as some of us  thought .a  few  months ago.  The following prophecy of the well-  It nown   war correspondent  Mr. -Phillip Gibbs, and probably Hie most-successful  writer of them all,' hazzurds  a prophecy in one of his latest despatches which is of exceptional interest.     "The  fate  of  the world,"-,   he  says," "will be    decided    before    the  leaves  turn   brown   on     this     year's  trees and perhaps before the harvest  is gathered  in.     I  believe it will be  u.?r.idod in our favor, but the enemy  is   still   immensely     strong.       One's  mind is staggered by the number of  men  lie crowded  on  to  this western  front, but he is using them up apace,  and   we   know   he   is   not   replacing  them   at  anything   like   the   rate   of  losses."    These   words   were  penned  after (he dramatic counter blow  between Soissons and Chateau Thierry,  which   Mr.   Gibbs     considers ��������� .moans  tha't the balance of numbers on the  western   front   has   begun   lo   tip   in  the Allies'  favor.

Goodwin, the evader of the law, could not,  have chosen a more-protected district  close to civilization than at the head  of Comox Lake. With the mining  operations at the foot of the lake it  was an easy matter to send Goodwin  food, perhaps unnoticed; neither  could the Socialist element of the  labor party have chosen a more tin-  appropriate, way of testing their  strength.

Blame Ridge  Mas a Road Question  The Maple Ridge municipal council sat on Saturday last and after a  long discussion upon the systematic  regard of the    co-operation    of    the  government road officials of tho district,, passed a resolution to write.the  Hon.   John   Oliver   for   an ���������interview  and  appointed. Reeve Ansell, Courts.  McArthur,  Sproule, .Dale and   ftwiu'g  as a  deputation  to  thresh  out     the  River road question.    The discussion  was initiated-by-the reading, of a letter   from   Engineer- A.  E.   Foreman,  of the. public works-department, Victoria, alleging an agrei'nent. between  the municipality and the government  to each maintain five miles of the River road. Thist he council vehemently "denied.    The importance    of    the  discussion lay in the 'fact that fhe officials consistently    disregarded    the  instructions   of   the   Premier   at   an  earlier date that closer co-operation  between   the   local   officials   and   the  municipality must take place.      The  council pointed out several instances  of  arbitrary  action   on   the   past  of  the road foreman, who had never con  suited them us  to plans  or expenditure, had deliberately    selected    the  best piece of fhe road for govern mem  expenditure and Jeft them     the    inferior, openly    announcing    that   he  would spend the money    where    he  chose.       A  correspondence   between  Councilor  Ewing    and    the     Public  Works Department was    also    road,  and  the  fact that  confidence in  the  road foreman was carried at a meeting of the Maple   Ridge   Liberal As-  Hociation   was  quoted   ingeniously   in  one of the letters as a proof of the  popularity and  integrity  of  the said  foreman,   much   to   the   disgust,     of  Councillor Sproule who    wanted    to  know why the association should butt  in on the road work of the municipality?'    A  query which evidently as-  founded -his  colleagues   by   its  innocence, but not taken literally.  A petition to repair the River road  east and west of Haney,    signed    by  thirty people was read at this council meeting.     Carr's hill was described as almost impassable .and diverting   business  from   Haney.     Councillor JMcArthur is whose beat the portion in question lies was not aparently  perturbed  at  the commotion among  Haney residents, who, he    declared,  would not. be satisfed even if $5,000  was spent, on the road.    His appropriation he contended    would    only  gravel the road which he-was prepared  to  do.    Reeve Ansell  would not  hear  of only    gravelling    the    bill,  which he pronounced    as    throwing  the money away.     It should be-rocked, the gravel would wash away.    No  rocking, no  responsibility     for     the  reeve.    Ultimately  after  a   long debate including hints that if the municipality  wanted  decent   roads  and  efficient repairing they must be prepared  for   increased     taxation,     the  rocking of  the  hill  was  determined  upon.    Councillor Dale's motion was  carried   that   100   yards   of   rock   be  applied to  the hill under Councillor  McArthur's orders, and    that    when  that gentleman's resources  were exhausted the balance of the cost was  to be taken out of the general funds.  This meant, as the rest of tho councillors interpreted, the "beat" appropriations would  have to make good  the deficit in No.  8's appropriation,  which  was acquiesced in  but by no  means cheerfully. During the discussion the reeve criticised the expenditure on the roads by beats and individual councillors    with    different  systems of expenditure.    He advocated a board of works and a common  appropriation   for   at   any   rate   the  main  roads, before appropriation to  beats.        They could thus do small  portion of  permanent work  in each  district every year.    At present    he  had no right to criticise any councillor  for his  road  administration  except  by the control he exercised as  chairman of the finance conimitoe  vtfsc&Hsmn&s&K  Y'  roiir telephone'is better-than.postal-facilities, because it  brings your answer without-a moment's delay.

Eggs rose another cent, or possibly two cents, higher than last  week's price, but chickens of every  variety, tock a drop. Ducks took a  slight upward turn. Butter ; was  quoted at prices similar to those of  last Friday.  The wholesale meats did not make  any great showing and prices remained about stationary'. Pork,  veal and beef .were on show but  there did not appear to be any mutl  ton.  That the new fish department is  appreciated by the public was evidenced in the fact that from opening  time until nearly mid-day the stall  was thronged by patrons.  Vegetables of all kinds made a  good showing and honey was on sale  at 30(! by the section and 35������ by the  glass.  The auction ring did well and  there were a number of: horses, milch  cows and other farm stock put up for  sale. The prices realized for the  cows ran from $100, but the horses  did not go any too well except in the  case of the heavier animals.  There was quite a large attendance  of valley people despite the busy liar-  vest 'operations.  The Sherman fish stall did a land  oflice business, some twelve or fourteen hundred pounds of fish being  sold and the supply running out long  before the demand. In view of the  publicity this stall got after las!  week's operation, it was noteworthy  that there was a great improvement  in the mailer of packing ai-d icing  the f.sli this week.

A Tax Sale F&r Sumc  The constant demands made on the  Sumas council for road facilities  brought up the question of finance  at its Saturday meeting. Municipal  Clerk Yarwood, on being qcstioned,  stated that a few of the residents  had to his personal knowledge strained every effort to meet their obligations, but there were others that seem  ed to treat their taxes as a minor  ^matter of importance, it. would bo  impossible to get along, he slated, in  reply to questions, unless the ratepayers came along with their taxes  without delay. The entire council  desired to avoid a tax sale this year  if possible, but it was felt that one  would have to be.ordered, ot its next  meeting on 7th September, if a large  per centagc ot the arrears were not  paid before that date.  The roads and briges foreman put  up a practical ultimatum to the  council regarding his wages, which,  he said, were only those of an ordinary worker in other districts. Ho  stated he could not get labor today  for the wages he himself received,  and that he would earn considerably  more at his own special employment,  lie was ready to step down at once if  the council would get another man.  Eventually a give and take on both  sides was evolved and the situation  was saved and a $���������! a day was granted the foreman.  Road improvement again came before the council when a resident enlarged upon the two approaches to  the Kilgarde. works, which lie designated as "man traps", "one with the  possibility of a fall of 100 feet." He  referred to the foreman's report on  the" need of more culverts and less  bridgework, as applying to the entire  valley.

POTATO  SHORTAGE  IN  NORTHWEST  A despatch from Portland, Ore.,  says: The Northwest in common with  the entire country, faces a potato  shortage, if the present conditions of  the growing crop .is any indication.  This was the opinion of crop experts  hero  today.  Conservation of potatoes will be  necessary. Long protracted dry  weather has damaged the potato crop  S'j\ erely. Also, the acreage is smal-  l'ir 1 liar, "last year.  Estimates give a potato crop in  Oregon. Washington, Idaho and California of 47,400,000 bushels, against  ii!),000,000 bushels a year ago. The  acreage in these states, it is estimated, total 25 0,000 given over to  potatoes, against 328,000 a year ago.  o  ������  lh r  J A.
