FRUIT GROWERS, WAKK UP!  Organized  labor is deniancling    a  six-hour day, five days a week. They  are also asking for    several     other  things and apparently have strength  behind   these   resolutions     to     back,  them up.    What are the farmers and.  fruit  growers  going to  do  about it  and wilt they still work twelve and  fifteen hours a clay for seven, days a  week?    Can they.hold hired'help at  these long hours when other work is  paying full time for six hours as a  day's work.      Let us face the issue  squarely.      The movement from thc  farms to the cities and larger towns  has already commenced and    if    the  present state of affairs are not changed, everyone including the old mooley  cow will be on the big time circuit  and when the moon shines over the  cow shed there'll be nobody at the  kitchondoor.    The   whole  Hick  family will just up and move into town,  by Hock.    No more twilight recitals  on a milking-stool, no more mosquitoes, lumbago, frozen    toes,    neither  will there be    any    more    midnight  chores.    Too  velvety,   this  six  hour  day, five days a week.    Can you beat  it?  Therefore it is up to the fruit  growers to organize. Let us demand  eight hoiirs a day for ourselves and  our employees and let our demand  be a general increase in the price  of all our products. Directly or indirectly it is our own pockets that  are hit when the labour unions knock  off an hour earlier from their working day. Every increase that they  receive means that we will have to  pay more for our materials and tho  other necessities that we must purchase. It is therefore quite obvious  that  unless we  meet  these  changed  Ml l-.Ii TRODUCEKS CO  IXTO RETAIL ROSIN ESS  The Fraser Valley Milk Producers  Association will make an attempt to  corner the retail milk business in  Vancouver, and at their annual lne-it-  ing-in St George's hall vited half u  million dollars for that purpose. The  .meeting was very largely attended,  and this decision was, arrived at af tor  it had been-discussed for five hours*  The intention is to assess the mem  hers for their share of the half million fund on a pro rata basis according to the quantity of milk they ship.  Of the half million, it is estimated  that the association's plant will cost  .lf200,000 and the balance will be used in buying out the retailers now  doing  business.

The Matsqui schoP board met at  the Agricultural hall on.'"Wednesday  afternoon, when the declining attendance of the Matsqui high school came  in for serious consideration. Five  years ago the municipalities of Matsqui and Sumas, with the -Abbotsford  school district took steps lo establish  a high school in the district that  should be central and of easy access  from the whole countryside.  At that time the concensus of opinion was that Abbotsford was in.-'  logical centre Lor tho school.

But. just listen, "Politics wasn't discussed."  "Wo aro pleased that our Premier called on Sir  Wilfrid, but sorry that ho stayed only "ten minutes."  But how could thc polished old veteran of many Dominion political battles talk politics with our John?  How could ho talk politics tho. Premier of  British Columbia, who avouUI want to do all tho talking himself?  Vf-lon John loop up Avifii minister of railways while  in Ottawa the necessity for going on with the Canadian  Northern railway work, said the premier. He did not  get any definite assurance, but ended by saying that  "some Avork is being done now." John is getting to  bo quite a Avi'y politician. Anything to mislead -.-the  public aud make them think he is doinj; it ail. He is  at thi;; late date after popular opinion. Do you think  ho can redeem himself?  Tho premier  regretted  that  "disabled  men  would -  return from the front en pensions to face thc problem  .  of high  rents,, and he  Avas given  (o understand  that  thc Dominion government might do something in tha  way of loaning money to the province with which    to  build'house's.    This question hit's got to be dealt with".  J-Je puts' it right up to  the' Dominion government to',  do something but thinks the    provincial    government  should be entrusted Avith the money, they aro so very  much hotter spenders���������or should avc say spendthrifts?  Something must be done for the returned and disabled  men. but Premier Oliver thinks it -is in better hands  than his if the Dominion is going to do it.    Such a  confiding little man! - But'-if'is all right just as long  asPremier Oliver don't have to be responsible for it.  And says he J"The"i'ranlc and -full assumption of the  responsibility of providing for the returned soldiers  and their .dependents by the-Dominion will make the  position of the province niu'ch'easier." ��������� Yes, indeed!  Perhaps the Premier thinks there .will be. more land-'  left for the Mennonitcs along the G. T. P., whom the  provincial government seem to have a preference for  during the late years of-the war:  Then lo-p-ufrt'he^evil day. off as long'as possible, probably until''aftel- tlm'iiext provincial legislation,"-he  says that it will only he'Avhen 'the change'in Dominion  legislation" is made'wiirwe "know what'change, ii any,  is needed, in our legislation." Of course the province  will give"hearty co-operation for the purchase or expropriation" of "land for the use of the Dominion Soldiers' settlement board." Premier Oliver is good at  expropriation, possibly. . See how. he expropriated the  provincial act.'pf: parliament passed last session, into  his own meaning and thus lost to the province not only  a good guarantee but the' equipment as. well, according to the leader of opposition and others. Whererhe  can sIioav his authority, no .matter what, the cost, Hon- '  est John is there with the-goods. Then in regard to  this expropriation "thc cost will be' borne by the-Dominion."  "The Dominion, at its own expense, would "carry on  an extensive immigration campaign for-the purpose of  securing approved settlers to be placed- on available  lands." We Avondcr if the authorities have heard about  the aliens along .the G. T..P.'at Vanderhoof and the  oifor of lands to thc returned soldiers-af Stewart Lake  miles aAvay from any railroad, -and do not want to entrust matters of this kind' to'Vuch men as Putallo and  Olivor? '"���������''':  One might .take .almost every sentnee in the inter-  vigw and sIioav Iioav Premier' Oliver is very much  pleased and-satisfied that the Dominion is going to  handle thc affairs inconection with reconstruction and  placing them on land. And one wonders Iioav Honest  John has taken such a the Avords "returned  soldlors." These, unfortunate personage's 'appear to '  bo the shadow of all Premier Oliver's futuro troubles.-  Well, the truth of tlrfe m'atter "js'tlia't "they have no  tU'iV'ctlon for him" cither.  Tho intcrvijw was quite a successful affair, but just  imagine-Olivor sitting at Ottawa with the other representatives and  "assenting" to the proceedings!  An American'pa'per'-rebnk'es Presitfcht Wilson as follows: '  Wilson's undemocratic -bid.for-a.partisan Democratic Congress has been ansAverod as it should have been  -���������by the repudiation of a democratic People. "When  a President of this Nation so far frogets himself as to  declare practically that loyalty can. be found only In  his own party, he has earned:;tn_-e;fllap in the face American citizenship administered; him yesterday  through the ballot box."      -.;''       *  The campaign just_cIosed_was' inade'annoyingly me-.  'niorable'by this.^aU'j)LPr^itf���������Jft>Wils6a'.to The People  for  thc-election of a Democratic Congress���������-Senators  and Representatives���������In accord  with  his leadership.  Return of a Republican majority "to Neither House, he  declared, would bo interpreted on- the. other'side of- the  water a's a repudiation "of nly leadership." Still.moro  directly hia showed his hand when he asked for-the election of Democratic majorities in both Houses if Thc  People "wish nie to continue to be your unembarrass-  od spokesman in affair's at home' and abroad."  Further-and Avith reference, to the war,' tho President insisted that conditions "make it imperatively  necessary that .the Nation should give its undivided  support, to 'the Government under a unified leadership  and that it Republican' Congress would divide the leadership.". Under that smooth phrasing it is plain that  by "Government" and "unifiod leadership" Wilson  " meant simply himself and his' own will to dominate  and control. He was careful to add, that he did not  ask this for his own sake or that of his party but for  the good of the Nation. And ho apoligizcd for this ap  peal, on tho grounds that tho times are'"critical" and  "no scruplo of taste must bo allowed to stand in the  ' Avay."  Tho Deo is not a partisan paper and has no disposition to criticise tho President or liis recent address  from any basis other than that of the Nation's wol-  fare and the permanonce of truly democratic government in this countr-y���������a government of and by and  for The People. And that does not mean govornment  by one man, one leadership or one party, nor a Congress submissive or obedient to tho direction and call  of tho President.  .���������In his deplorable deliveranco Wilson artfully strove  to make it appear that the choice of Republicans rather than Democrats by The People at the polls Would  be "repudiation" of his "leadership."���������such iu effect as  would give aid and comfort to the enemy abroad  which our Federal .Constitution'makes a form'of. treason.    The implication .against the Republican  Par.ty  is hot ohly.'unjuBt Jhiitalso' Uhtrue,.'and naturally' a-  rouscdV.great indignation ih its,-ranIts,,which- such able  spokesmen' as.-.Tai't/ Lodge, ltooeeVelt and'.'Mugiios'vig-  ' brously'.'expressed; ;;���������,It is Vvell known'that niuch ot the  best .work cv Congress in support of the Ava'r had/been  ���������done by the-Republican min-ofity.iii' both, Houses. /  And that -minority-had' in -many ways had .a. decidedly and much heed-ad quickening effect'1 upon the Democratic majority and the Wilson Administration; in tho-  biiii'dmg. bi'-.vessels; the shipment of troop's to .Europe,  the airplane investigation and numerous "other matters  Rat liter curiously> ih contrast Avith his pre-election attitude,-Wilson said .in a book written by him on our'  "Constitiition'a'l  Government"' long before he'entered  the White..House.    "Tlie President is not expected .to  lead Congress, but only to assent' or to dissent from  the laws it seeks to enact and to put those which receive his signature or aro passed over his' veto into  execution." Which is and always should' remain true,  in harmony, with the. spirit of the Constitution.and. the,  genius of.'the American people:    But.yet-in-the same  book Wilsqn..idesclosed his,OAvn personal--leaning avh������ri  he. remarked; that the part of the 'Government-Avhich-  l'u'is "the best chance of'leadership and ina'stfery" is the  Presidency, through "direct access to public opinion..'.'  ���������Hence the late Presi dental appeal'tb The/People, to  return Democratic majorities to both Houses, of Con'-  gress, as his "best chance of leadership 'a'n'd -mastery.'"  Well may many of President Wilson's most proihin-  .p-nt admirers and adherent's 'openly grieve for such lamentable and undignified solicitation���������not merely- for '  partisan victory but far more for gratification -of his  aim and ambition to rule as undisputed sovereign in  all the important affairs of this democratic Government and its relations with foreign Powers.  ^ft almost -seems like an imposition that any person  should set out to pick up the lands that "have reverted .to councils at a tax sale and with an idea -of putting on these lands returned soldiers. The lands  usually of this kind are not worth much or they "would-  not come into possession of the council. Tho other  fellows could not make a living on them, and how in  the-name-of all that is high and just could a returned  soldier be expected to make a living on -any of them. ���������  There are exceptionally good pieces of land among the  bunch but mighty few.    Let us not impose.

W. Wright, who has- been in  that district for the last eight years.  He attributes this condition to income burned and survey lines generally having become obliterated  while the government has no one  there to show land to the laud seekers.  Roads and trails are an urgent  need,'he says, and he suggests that  tiie government should co-operate  more with the land-owners who have  spent much money and years of effort to induce people to settle in  tnat   part  of   British   Columbia.  "Arc we going to have a fair next  year? We certainly are," declared  Mr. A. C. Welsh, president of the Ii.  A. & I. Society, at the Board of  Trade meeting when the question  -was asked him.  Mr. Welsh said that, the annual  ���������meeting will be held in January,  and it was the intention to-issue letters asking for an expression of op-  ���������iiiion from exhibitors and others interested as to the advisability of resuming operations. The decision  ���������will ho made at the annual meeting  but he has no doubt that it will be  to begin in     1919. However,    he  -warned his hearers that it will take  a tremendous amount of work to  ,'bring the provincial- exhibition back  to where it was, and a good deal of  money will have to be forthcoming.  Tiie buildings are in bad shape, and  wiil have to be put in condition a-  gain. He appealed for the wholehearted support of all the citizens.  Mr. D. E. McKenzio, secretary  and manager, spoke on the same lines  He indicated that the question of finances will- have to be taken up with  the city council, and also expressed  the opinion that a substantial grant  from trie provincial government will  bo needed.
