The  most noticeable tendency,"so far    as  foreign trade is concerned, is   the almost universal determination'to seek  prosperity and solvency by maintaining restrictions  upon  imports; European countries, with the exception of  the United Kingdom,    show no signs  of relaxing the stringent regulations  jilready in force, and" a    similar attitude is manifested on this continent.  The United States has under, consideration a revision of the tariff which  will include    the    provisions of    the  temporary     measure  now   in     force,  and will affect a    wider 'list'of articles in which Canadian    exporters are  interested.  have    both    in    steadily    increasing  quantities,.as their    people    become  morn regularly employed in    executing orders obtained by underbidding  competitors.   On the basis of the current, scale of' wages in- Germany and  on this continent, and at the present  rate of exchange,  iho equivalent    of  labour coaling $-10 In Oun.ida or    the  United States costs in Germany only  $5.    Such    disparity in    labour costs  can only mean that   the    outlook for  export trade in those articles of domestic    manufacture    In ' the    cost of  which labour is the main item is not  encouraging.       This .  phase   of   the  inevitable  adjustments,   however,  of  a passing character, for as industries  revive in    continental    Europe, ..the  .need of its    population   will expand.  i-Moreover, as the basis of all trade is  !an ' exchange of    commodities, these  ��������� nations will sooner or 'alov have    l,o  i  I  I accept  the .products of    other coun*  A further hindrance to   trade is to j uics iu OI.dor _0. dispps-?, .of their own  be found'hi'the    stale of tlie foreign I nuiunfactunil articles,    .l'ho'econdm-.  exchanges, as for example  in Br-azi!-1  where the fall in "the "value of "the |  milreis has resulted in a widespread  refusal to accept shipments','from  abroad. Atone time as; many-as  forty-eight vessels wore reported -to  be in the harbour of Rio de'Janciro,  unable to discharge their'cargoes because every available'-.cubic foot, of  warehouse space was -occupied, and  the importers of the goods ��������� had neither the'power nor the desire, at prevailing prices, to take, delivery. Sim-'  ilar conditions' existed'in-Buenos Aires, (where"it was.-' 'estimated that  North American merchandise to. tho  value of  ic law /concerned will conUmie to  govern!' despite the superabundance  of tariffs and restrictions.'

Esling, M. P., for Koss-  land, returned to his; home last week_  jiftcr visiting the coast." To-the explanation of the sudden-t-Hoppuig ol  nil road work .by tho government    a  few weeks ago.    IIis explanajion    is  I bat'the government has".gone hopelessly into debt, so hopelessly,- as' . a  result of unbusinesslike and. exti-av-,  u-?arit expenditures, that it-is in financial distress and the bank has called a' halt.'   Premier Oliver and Finance    Minister    Hart   are    having a  strenuous task    figuring.,   ways and  means  of financing 'ordinary  expenditures for the coming months.    ,1 he  hank  is putting  them '.through     the  ibird degree, and receipts   from    the  liuuor    business are not up to expectations.   ' LI was figured    that    three  millions wouldbe the profits for 19/11  but there aro a lot. of, employees, expenditures    are    heavy,    and    much  business must be done before an even" break is made."  In the*-meantime,  "Honest"    John has    to., bear    the  Urount. .'Municipalities     are     howling for aid,  the    university    cannot  and will not be built, and road work,  wilh the exception of contracts,    has-  been stopped, and  the bank balance  is on the wrong side.    .   -  "On   -March-   21,"    Mr:*Esling    is  credited with    saying, "tho ' government issued    two . millions in    New  York runds, and the bank grabbed it.  On April 20, a, month later, the-government, floated a three million bond  Ihb.,0. in? New York  funds'.    This loan  untied*. $2,750,000.     but     the     bank  wanted  the  provincial  over-draft  reduced, ami when the money    arrived  U,o bank took every cent.    Then the  finance   minister     tried     again.     ua  thought'loans payable in    New ^ ork  funds  were , pretty"-dear,    with exchange, at  10 and   12 per cent, so he  issued a Canadian loan of three millions.    This was in'June.. The    real  'bonds are not    printed yet,    hut the  whole issue' was sold.    British    Co-  mnhia investors took $500,000 ol it  -Hie  bank  was sure the-government  needed the money,    but said:      >ou  still owe us so much,'"that we fhmk  we had better take this;  and so tho  bank tcok.it-jvery.cent .'There was  nothing r'o do'but issue .'mora    ooncls .  Money didn't . come as .fast.as^   was  hoped  for  from .Canadian natations, |  arcl as the government .needed funds (  for various high ��������� priced- pro:,ec>v .it ;  floated another-loan of two millions  during, -the ������ii;st.week of July.,  This  was' in New York "funds,'-wl ll!?,u? {?  millions 'borrowed     this' year;.

You see, the ban;*, nelu-a  lot -of treasury bills which were really promissory notes    from    the government, and the bank preferred the  cash     So it collected $9,800,000 this  vear. and to    this    same    bank���������the  Bank of Commerce���������the government  still owes two and a half millions.  potent  FOUR-MINUTES TO COMPLETE CALLS  .-..--,"'    TO'VANCOUVER ISLAND  .

When the-wire-  fegg  report  is  received  of  the  a'p  preach of a vessel all eyes are turneJ  piverwards   and   glasses ��������� and   tele  SBopes focussed upon  the  speck on  ifee horizon following it as it take?  ifeape over the rim of the sea.  |   Larger and larger looms up what  fiSfgs put to be a giant passenger  liner of the Canadian Pacific boUB-3  with a heavy freight of human soul*  for the St. Lawrence ports. When  about half a mile away or so th**  pilot boat leaves its pier and steam*  out to meet its mammoth sister. The  pilot is, however, not the only mas  to go on board. There is the Inspector of Immigration, the Colon*  ization Agent of the Canadian Pacific and the representatives of tha  passenger department of the sam������  company, all having the same object*,  assisting the steamship passengers,  preparing them for demarcation, >and  facilitating the actual landing. And  so it is .a goodly little number tho  pilot boat takes out on its short  voyage.  It takes the speedy little craft but  a short time to reach the big liner.  now merely drifting with the tide and  waiting its arrival, and- with a deft  little   swing   she   glides   gracefully  alongside, the incongruity of the pair'  forcibly suggesting another interpretation of    Dignity and Impudence/'  All   the  while   the  passengers   ar������  ���������rowding the decks, and hanging in  ,i dense mass over the side eagerly.  watching,   wondering,   and  appraij-  ing.  The rope ladder is dropped from  the liner and swings out from the  side at each heave of the vessel, The  pilot seizes it and climbs up hand  over hand to be followed by the others who are to make thet trip with  the newcomers' up the,, river. Remarks and light banter are lnter-  shanped, thore is much waving of  hands and fluttering of handker-  ���������hiefs, and.the cheeriest of spirits  orevails. Then the little boat pulls  away, the Titan of the seas appears ���������  l.o recede, and in the echo of shouts  and cheers the pilot boat turns her  nose to the shore and faces and  figures become obscure blurs.

Ia the heaTt of the small-fruit  country on the north side of the  FraMr River in, British Columbia,  fyfc������re every landowner has his com-  mereial patch of raspberries, small  9t largre, one of the best-examples  ef what a perfectly developed, well-  ran fruit farm on a small acreage  .can be, is the Maple Crest Farm at  ���������Hatek belonging to Mr. A. E. Dann.  Mr. Dann is an Old Country gardener and was brought up. on his  'father's fruit farm of 200 acres in  K������nt;  as the  conditions for fruit-  ������ rowing are much the Bame in Brit-  h Columbia as in England, his experience is his greatest asset out  nere. He believes that there is far  more profit in the careful and thorough cultivation of the small patch  I than in the big patch carelessly looked after.  The soil in this district is naturally  rich, well-drained and therefore particularly well-adapted for small fruit  but Mr. Dann uses farm-yard manure when possible and plenty of  chemical fertilizers as well.  He has an acre in strawberries,  the "Mageon" variety, which are  best suited to the district, and in a  Sood year realizes $1,200 on these;  alf of this must be allowed for ex-  psnaes of picking, packing, crating,  cartage, etc., so that he clears a  profit ot |600.  Ho has over an acre of gooseberries, mostly grown from cuttings  vhfch ho struck himself, "Pearl"  Which are th������ earliest, "Oregon  Champion." the main crop and "Joce-  lyn," the late ones. There are 1,100  bushes in full bearing which aver-  ftffe a gross return of $1 per bush,  mote than half of which is clear  profit.  Gooseberries, of course, are far  cheaper to grow than strawberries  because like all bush fruit they last  4for a long term of years without  scedmg renewal.  Mr. Dann has over an acre of raspberries, "Cuthberts" and an unknown  variety much grown in the district  that surpasses even the "Cuthberts"  iot earliness and heavy yields. Three  tons to ihe acre is an average crop  er 800 -Irates for which the lowest  price is $4 per crate, so it will be  geen that the profits work out much  Jgss same as - for straws, and rasps.,  There is an acre of loganberstes'  and though these do not hrin������ ia  such good "prices as raaps. the caegi  lasts much longer and pickers, cafi  pick double the amount in a day, se  the profits work out the aaiaa;  Logan growers are very ansjoua ia  see a plant for bottliag logan-juitt  started in the Province and we nap������  this will come ere long.  Over an acre of "Thornlea8,' hlag&J  berries are grown as these aro can*  sidered better than "Snyder" whkfei  are too seedy or "Evergreen." vftfaM  are too late. They do not bring^  such good prices as the othe? froitd  but the crop is heavier, lasts longs**  and the expenses are less, so that e  good |600 is cleared on th&e aba  There are about one and a qaarfag  acres   of  red   and   black   enrrsuta  some   of   the   red ^urrant   bathe*  reaching the prodigious size of 9 JT  in diameter and producing ores 8!  lbs. of fruit.   These bring in a grae  return of $700-$800 per so*. '  Mr. Dann has also fifty Bou&0oe&  pear trees which invariably yield ������  good crop and are a variety Bar-  ticularly free from disease. Tbifi  district has learnt the imperatks  necessity of co-operation in handling  their fruit. The area of productios  has assumed such vast proporttenfi  in the last few years that unless tbi  produce had been handled on buaW  ness lines nothing short ef dim  could have occurred, both for  individual and for this industry  the Province.  Cold storage facilities are al  lutely necessary and the expenaa d  this can only be met by every grow*  er joining the exchange in nis__<h>  trict. Last.'year-Othe Hatajc  and Mercantile Exchange ship;  six carloads of rasps to Winru]  and not oris t.ate was Bpoflt  A travellerirom the East told Ifift  Dann that he saw several crates ad  rasps from the Hatsic  district Ufli  summer in Fort William and thaj  were all in perfect shape.  This year the Exchange expects, to  ship over 500 cars of iroit and th������  strawberry yield alone is expected ta  total from 800-1000 tons. > There w������  about 2,800 acres in British CohnV  bia under small fruit and the valna  of last year's crop was appwxH  mately a million dollars.���������H. ft-Wjj  .^������y>'������������<',>'  ������&  *4'- .  ���������.k-''''���������':.   .'   ���������\>..

The Matsqui council has no money  to do' any more work this season,  but there are quite a num'ber in the  municipality who are willing to do-  what is wanted and wait,for pay for  six months. Two casC3 of' this kind  came .before the council on Saturday  in the Agricultural Hall.  Mr. J. C. Fredrickson, and nine  others petitioned for a ditch and the  council agreed to provide a siim not  to exceed $300 for lumber, the petitioners agreeing to wait six months  for payment, the ditch to bo made to  the "satisfaction of the conucil. The  purpose is to drain the SKonge, Harris and Cust roads. The acreage  owned by the petitioners amounted  to approximately 337 acres. In the  second case an agreemnt was entered into with Mr. Loth Sitfard to die.  7 5 rods of a ditch on the Turner  road so as to divert water running in'  the Turner ditch west, about 15 rods,  thence north into tlie plough from  the northwest corner of ' section 1,  instead of allowing it to go north  from this point and thcuce through  the orchard belonging to Mr. Loth  Sivard. The ditch was to be completed to'the satisfaction of the council and Mr. Sivard was to wait -six  months for payment. This ditch was  covered but was fallen into such disrepair that it would cost $400 to'repair it. Recently a child of Mr.. Si-  vard's fell in and was nearly drowned. ���������'   ���������    -  BIGHT   CANDIDATES  TO  COMPUTE  FOR SEATS  ON   LANGLEY  HOARD  MURRAYVILLE, Aug. 25.���������Eight  candidates have accepted nomination  for the five positions on the School  Roard of Langley left vacant when  the entire board resigned a few weeks  ago.
