'."JS  FRIDAY DEC. .13, 1912  There 1b aviation-wide farmer-  movement on the success of/which  would 'be almost incomputiblc in  its far-reaching material influence  for constructive development of  agriculture, particularly in In 3  Heavy timbered regions of tU'a  province. The imovement seem3t'j  <have .taken hold of both the Ci ���������  nadian'and "America^ nation at thc  same time. For there is talk of  helping the farmer from* one en i  oi'the (Continent, to''the other. The  object of the movement is to d&-  .eure. legislation that will provido  long time lowyrate of interest government ' loans t������o the farmais.  The provincial minister of. agriculture seems to.'be in favour oftli"  movement, and <an;/act will be passed by'.'the'Borden government .to  the farmers of the prairie province^ on grain in the granaiy.  While in "this province it will  mean the assistanoei of the farmer  in   clearing  of . land. ,       . ���������  For   the   provincial   govcrnms'.it-  to assist the farmer' to clear thi  dand   would, mean   that   many   of.  fthe best men. would take ��������� up far- -  i'ming   instead. of, following   ota.-'t -  ��������� occupations,  much   less  congenial  * to them:" The life, of.,the man who  -clears the' heavily timbered Land  ' carves out a homq 'for himself auti  family, is no sinecure.  It     means  days of long toil without the enjoyment of life.   It means skimp-  -  ing   and   saving   arid   denying   of  '  many of the luxuries of life, which  ���������- should not ba the case as it is ;a  ; well known fact that the farms*  is' the backbone   of   the   country.  This has b.een  demonstrated thve-  ugiiout the entire history tof the.  continent.   .The Anglo-Saxon race  of America started as farmers, the  -French  started -the roving life  of  a   hunter while .the Spaniard followed the pursuit of mining.  Both  of   the   latter   are  improtant,   out  a prosperous   farming   district   is  always a   blessing to, any community and anything- that a   government  can  do' to  make t,he lifoof  the agriculturist less of a drutl^".  <  would mean  a blessing to the nation.  America will nof, be alone in thc  lending  of  money to, the farmer  In Germany, a   more settled country   than   ours,    the   government  loans   money tvo   the   farmers' at  low rate of interest for ���������.indefinite,  periods.   In   fact, .three  and  four  per cent, loans for a period, of'too.',  years have been, made by the government to the farmers of Gar  many.   In. these loans the honest,  industrious    farmer    is  protected,  from constant .worry that h:a m.orc-  gage will be foreclosed and     hi;  home  taken "from  him  at  a time".  when a renewal of his loan is impossible.  Government ���������loans ex the clear  ing of land in."the timbered region";  of   British   Columbia,   particularly  the. Fraser  Valley,   would   be      a  positive   blessing.   Nothing-could  more  materially ,stimulate  the  u-  tilization   of the  logged   off   di.i  Iricts of Uif) Fraser Valley .by actual  home 'builders.   Could  money  on  long  safe loans    be. borrowed"  from the    government    by these  home builders an|;'era.of develop-:  merit would follow, considering our  fine  climate.   .There could be    no  safer-investment  for  the   9urpius  millions that the McBridc government appear or have    at their disposal  enclr year.    It  would  mean  greater national development lo oe  distributed  among  its  producers  Every .business 'man, every political'*.party���������there is only one in D.  C���������should urge government loans  to farmers..'  The Progressive Association and  thc Fraser ValLey Municipal Publicity Bureau are both in favor  of helping tho man who would tiil  thc soil. Tho, boairds of trade thro-  ugliout the province are all willing  to endorse a scheme which "will  settle the land/ It would not be a  bad scheme, for the residents, of  the Fraser Valley to,present a  monster  petition   to  the  McBrid:.  government at its next session in  ���������regard to this matter. It would  hurt no one and it would show  that the people were in earnest.  The future of the Fraser Valley  belongs to 'progress. This is true  in.local politics and government as  it is time in commerce, industry  and the arts. No representative  ofi-.'th'e Fraser Valley, .in politics,  and no government -can long remain in the ascendency except by  the favour of'the- citizens��������� the  voters���������all of-whom-believe  gressive principles.';.- rThe- reason"  ��������� often .g'iv.en' these .days" ipi man's  -success, no matte/���������wh������,t line or  calling he may'be in,, is that ho  is considered 'by his fellow citizens as a progressive man.
