At  noon a fine'- banquet was given by the  ladies of the Presbyterian and English   church     congregations,     when  SNOW PLOW WILL KEEP  THE PASS OPEN WINTERS  Whereas the Daylight Saving Act  of 1919 has proved to be beneficial  to all. classes of the community, and  Whereas the suspension of the said  Act  during  the coining year  would  be very detrimental to the Province  and  whereas  the Canadian  railways  advanced   their  train  schedules  one  hour last summer on account of so  many connections having to be made  with United States trains at boundary points, and whereas the Federal  Government  of the     United     States  has suspended their  war time Day-  loght Saving Act, and  whereas it is  is desirable that a uniform  time be  in  vogue in   British  Columbia    and  those states bordering on and adjacent to this Province, so that a uniform train schedule may be approved   and   published   by   the   railways  of the two countries, therefore be it  resolved  that  this   Board  of  Trade  petition   the   lieutentant-governor   in  Council   to   approach   the  governors  and governments of the aforementioned States, with a view, to having  such legislation enacted in. their respective States as  will   bring about  the   continuation   of   the   '.'Daylight  Saving" during the summer months  upon   the  Pacific  Coast,   and   be   it  further resolved that a copy of this  resolution be sent to the Boards of  Trade throughout the Province, and  to   the   Chambers   of   Commerce   at  Spokane and  Seattle,    Wash.,    and  Portland,   Ore.,  and   be   it   further  resolved that in any event the lieutenant-governor  in   iouncil   be  petitioned to bring the "Daylight Saving" Act into force in this Province  in the year 1920.  Plans for maintaining traffic over the Sunset highway and the Sno-  qualmie pass throughout the winter  took a definite shape lats week in  Seattle.  ��������� D. L. Ellis assistant engineer of,  the Great Northern Railway Company has been working on the  scheme, for a Jong time and recently  obtained from the General. Electric  Company the blue prints and estimates of- the cost of the machine  which will do the snow . clearing  He submitted them to the association whose members are active boosters of  the plan;  -  -Inasmuch as the machine is new  in.c<every..-d���������tail.c;tthd| will' '-'require "  the-"const ruction of' special electric  balteries, motors and gas engine in  addition io every detail of body and  tractor rollers, it is not believed possible to. hive it ready this year, but  the men who are' advocating .the.  scheme are going ahead with the,  idea of being prepared to keep the  pass open during the entire winter  of   1920-21.  . The first sonw plow will cost approximately $35,000 and will weigh  4 0,'000 pounds complete. It will have  ,'a separato motor for each side tractor and one for the rotary fan, according to the advance information  furnished the association by Mr. Ellis. It will cut a path through four  feet of snow to a width of nine feet  and do  it at a  four-mile clip.  Electrical experts, especially men  connected with the sale and distribution of electric automobiles, are a-  greed that the machine, if .properly  constructed,   would  be  practical.

IDLE BATTERY NEEDS  PERIODIC   CHARGING  IX)MINION AFFAIRS  As anticipated, all seven minsiters  In the Drury government whose nominations took place on the 15th were  re-elecetd by acclammation. Little  public interest w&s manifested in the  nominations which were regarded as  mere matters of form.  Premier Drury, Attorney-General  Roney and Hon. Maning Dolierty are  still to find seats.  Premier Borden will resign at the  end of the year and a new premier  ���������will be appointed.  "A battery is a nervous thing that  knows no repose," says Rodney  Prentice.  "Lay it away quietly, as you may  think, and it carries on a constant  chemical action, always changing its  state, always sweating off its charge.  That ist lie reason why a miscalled  'idle' battery needs periodic charging and attention. "Dry charge storage mean3 prevention of deterioration of any kind while tho battery  is laid up, and every motorist wlio  rests his car for the winter should  think twice before he leaves his battery, to run down during the colder  months. The best reason for 'dry-  charge' storage is the certainty . of  need it in the spring.  "If you run your car the year  iround it will save you a lot of hard  dollars to watch the battery closely  have it tested regularly and keep it  up to the highest point of efficiency.

Complaints from the    rural    mail  carrier   concerning   one   or   two   bad  portions  of road  on  his  route occupied  a considerable' portion     of  the  sitting.

Published Every Friday  J. A. Bates; Editor and,Proprietor  -  THURSDAY,   DECEMBER   18,   19 19  The council has passed the third-  reading of the bylaw which is .to  cqmo before I ho electors of Mission  at the next municipal election in  .Mmnary next (1920), for the purpose ot" guaranteeing the bonds' of  the  Fanners'Cold  Storage.  The object of the storage plant is'  to safcguaid the small fruits in the  rush of the season where they can  be frozen and shipped later to the  required destination. It will come  in handy m case of strikes, washouts  or any other trouble that may arise  during the berry season, and is a  safeguard against loss by the grower.  It seems to us that the step is a  wise one from the viewpoint of not  sustaining loss by the growers. In  years past, the grower has to our  own knowledge lost more fruit than  would build three or four ?4 0,00V,  cold storage plants, but for that loss  - ho has nothing but experience and regrets. If after the grower has  reached that stage when he, is able  to ship and has the assurance that  lie can place "His fruit in cold storage, thus' not sustaining loss in its  reaching the .market, it would seem  that an impetus has been given to  the fruit industry of this' distrcit  that will make R'pay and pay big'.  -It is the small losses���������a few crates  it may be���������that has kept the industry  back and has ruined a number- of  men who have started in the fruit  business thinking that all they had  to do Avas to grow fruit and they  would be on the highway to success.  How many in the ' past ten years  have found out to their disappointment that there were two -.distinct  parts to play in the raising of small  fruits���������growing and marketing. It  has cost the district many thousands  ot good dollars to find this out. To  the experienced grower, and the  man fresh'at the business, the establishing of a cold storage, plant will  be some kind of a guarantee that toa  will be successful. It tends to safeguard the marketing end of the  business. And almost any man can  grow fruit, but the ticklish part is  the marketing of the perishable product.  As to the guaranteeing of the  bonds by the municipality we cannot  pass an expert financial opinion but  this we can say is that it looks like  real first-class business policy to use  cno's own credit to help better his  business, and as long as the municipality, is properly safeguarded, which  it is understood it will be, -the idea  should be all right. ....  The bylaw will undoubtedly carry  as no fruit grower would think of  voting except in his .own interests.  No man with a grain of common  sonse would vote in any .other way  than in that way which will benefit  himself.  The municipality has-no bonded  indebtedness and if it can guarantee  bonds that will force the district to  the front the whole community will  be the benefactors.  over the signature of the attorney-  general and the still weaker om  printed in the Vancouver Sun'by Mr.  Oliver. About six months ago, Mr  Farris made the public statemen  that one great weakness of the Li  beral party in British Columbia wa  the lack of publicity given to the  acts of i he present government.  Since that statement ��������� was made, tin.  papers have been full of the various  acts of tho Oilver government and the  people throughout the province"are  reading more widely and becomviK  wU'i-r in consequence. In-face, s;  v, ise are the people' becoming and i-o  ioady are tlvsy in their comments  and criticisms-regarding the government, that .both the Hon. Mr': Oliver  and the Hon. Mr. Farris have become  worried over how this new information will influence the:" ��������� electorate,  and "taking their pen in hand" -the:-  have rushed to the newspapers ' -to  defend- themselves and the acts 'of  their party.

I  ^  THE ABBOTSFORD.POST  -���������>   a t*A'-  *~*��������� TJflR"  PAGE THREE  ���������ataw  SILVER  Extraordinary demands by India  and China, and unusually heavy  demands by European countries for  silver for coinage purposes, cannot  fail to stimulate both the production of that metal, and the utilization of large quantities of low,  grade ore 'which was not of commercial, value-' when prices were below  60 cents-per oz. Quotations at the  close of October were approximately  $1.22 per oz. As the world's, production of silver is far below' current requirements, it is, quite .probable that the price will remain  higher than it has besn in 'recent  years. The average production in  all countries for'some years''has not  exceded 1-60,000,000 . oz. ' annually  whereas to meet the present demands  315,000,000 oz. are 'are required.  India and China require annually  175,000,000 oz. in.settlement of the  trade balances due to theni which  are payable in silver instead of gold.  To ' meet the growing demand for  silver coinage, 100,000,000 oz. are  now required, and -for., use in the  arts,  40,000,000  oz.  The present shortage of silver is  attributable'in part to the hoarding  instinctsi-of the native East Indian,  . and to the acceptance of the rupee  in Mesopotamia, and in Egypt and  other African countries, as legal currency.       Germany   must,     perforce,  turn to silver, as gold is not within  her reach, and without exception the  use of silver coinage has greatly  increased in all European countries,.  The result of the advance', in the  price of silver bullion has in some  instances been to make the bullion  value - of silver greater than the  legal value, hence 'many' restrictive  measures. The British Chancellor  announced on October 3 0th, that the  melting, or exporting of British silver coins was made illegal and that  silver bullion was not to be exported  except- under licence.. The same restrictions apply in France also. These  developments will favourably affect  the mining industry of Canada. Two-  thirds of the world's production of'  silver is a-'by-product of the-lead,  copper and zinc industry, but in Canada only 1G per cent, of (he outp.ut  is thus obtained, the balance being  obtained from the mines at Cobalt.  From the Cobalt and outlying camps  17,661,C9'4 oz. having a value of  $17,341,790, were produced in'1918.  and since the opening of .these camps  in 1903 up to the end of'1918, 292,-  .$56,976 oz valued at $109,241,387  have been produced by them. ' The  stimulus which high- prices will give  to oxporation. and to the application  of more highly developed processes  to all grades of ore, will do much to  increase- the output, tlije scale of  which in recent years is indicated  in the fact that in  1910 the value of  the silver production in Canada was  $17,580,455, ounces produced 32,-  S(i9,2G4 and the average price wan  53.5!); in .1914 value 15,593,030, pro  duction ,2'S,44!i,������21 average price  54.81; in 19 15 value' 13,228,84 2,  production 2G,(j25,9G0 average  price 49.6St*; (in 19 18' value 20,000,-  000, production ��������� 20,780,000 average  price 9 7..1 0. ,  WHEN    TO   WEAN   PIGS  Att he conference of swine extension workers of the United States  department of agriculture, held recently in Washington, the question of  weaning pigs arose. The discussion  brought .out the fact that in some  parts of tlie country framers followed the practice of- weaning their  pigs at most all ages from 5, weeks  lip. The conclusions' reached were  that for'.best results, pigs should be  allowed to nurse'-the sow for at least  ten weeks where it is possible to do  so. It was decided that-it would be  still better to-allow the pigs to wean  theselves. A good: suckling sow,  properly fed, should be in a good  flow of'milk, up.to'ths time the pigs  are at least 10 -weeks of age'. Without question the mother's-milk is the  best possible to obtain for-young" pigs  Consequently! hog growers"' should  take advantage, of .this natural feed  to   the   greatest   extent-possible.

Moreover,  it- was not possible to make adequate  estimates of the power potentialities  of. the more northerly portions of  the province. As the country becomes :more developed considerable  power may be found to "be available.  . The author of,, the report, Mr. A.  V. White, deals fully with the relationship between water as a source  of power-' and its use for domestic  and, municipal supply, agriculture,  .irrigation, navigation, fisheries' mining, forestry and riparian rights.  Those problems are too frequently  ���������neglected in surveys of water-powers  T-ho development of' the country*.-J  :iiatural resources can-best be carried  on when each ,of. them is given adequate consideration. ' It is a mistake  to concentrate on any single resource  such as water-power, or the soil, or  tho forests to, the exclusion of all  olhlsrs. They are naturally interdependent.  As every engineer knows, it is necessary to obtain records of stream  flow, precipiation.,and natural storage, for a period, of years to arrive  at. average conditions, before attempt  ing to estimate the amount of potential power. - Power possibilites at  present must be bascd-on the minimum flow <. f streams. In many instances, nowever, artificial storage  may bo used economically and performs a double function of reducing  floods and increasing the amount of  available power.  bought from, its   purchaser  now   frr  less than  $150  an  acre, and  he ha-  been heard to remark he would  no  care to sell at that price.  ��������� The    number    of   tenant    farrre'T  throughout   the   I.ethb'rK'ge   dis'.n '.  who-are purchasing irrigated land rr  similar prices is a grod lir.:stratior  of  its  productive  value.

INSECT   COLLECTIONS  The collecting and preserving of  insects and the mounting of insect  collections lias become an important  part of the work of the student 3 in  many of our schools. The teachers  who have specialized in agriculture  have learned something of the methods of collecting' and preserving  insect s and are arousing the interest of their pupils-in this fascinating  subject. In order to assist those desirous of securing accurate information Entomological Circular No. 12  "Directions for Collecting and Preserving Insects" has been prepared  by J, H. McDunnough, M. A., Ph. D.  This circular, may-be obtained free  upon application to the'Publications  Branch. Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa. ..It indicates concisely somo  of the most essential features in connection with the collection of insects  and aims."to arouse an interest for  intelligent collecting of insects. Insects are very delicate creatures and  unless the greatest of care is observed in both collecting and packing  for shipment an otherwise valuable  collection may be rendered, practically worthless from both the aesthetic and the scientific standpoint.

'  NOTICE  MAKE   ENGINE   AID   THE  BRAKES   ON  AUTO  Abuse of the brakes on an automobile is characterized by expert  automobile men as the most careless  habit of many motorists.  So many fail to realize that descending long steep hills on the  brakes.alone tend to burn them out  and will at least decrease their  braking power.  His suggestion is that the automo-  bilist learn to use his engine' as a  brake. On ordinary grades this can'  be done by pushing the trottle to  full position, leaving the clutch engaged so-that the car will drive-the  c-tngine.  On exceptionally steep hills, closing the throttle, shifting into second  or first speeds and having the car  drive the engines will usually prove  effective in reducing the speed.  Should the car continue to descend  too rapidly, use the brakes.  Cutting off all ignition will also  aid in stopping the car under such  circumstances and will have the edd-  cd advantage of helping cool the  engine.  It   is   said   that   such   suggestions  will save a large part of the motor-. the Do  ist's   trouble  with  his  brakes.  ?N    THE    SUPREME    COURT    OF  BRITISH   COLUMBIA.

Palmer, one of the  cllioors appointed for the purchase  of horses for use of the army in the  late war, reminds the farmers and  horsemen of the West that they are  under great obligation to pioneer  breeders for the foundation of the  stock that has been a great factor  in development.- He writes in tlie  Horse Review:  "The subject .of breeds is still a  potent one, and will continue so as  long as each family of horses has  friends to expound its virtues. To  those of you who recall our boyhood  days on the farm, and the multitudinous labors performed by the trot-  ting-bred horse, there can be but  one answer. It was the descendants  of the Mogans, the Blackstocks,. the  Bashaws raid the Hambletonians that  turned   the first furrows    of    those  Western farms, and whose sons and  daughters have done more than all  other breeds combined to transform  a wilderness Into a paradise of.happy  homes. The best cavalry horses of  today still bear unmistakable signs  of that blood, and wo con but believe that the chosen horse of the  future must rely largely upon the  standard-bred for the poise, serviceability and endurance which is absolutely essential."
