A dcl���������-���������.���������-  gal ion consisting of a representation  from Matsqui School Board, one  from "Abbotsford and one from' S\i-  mas, went, to Victoria . to " discuss  means pf ..relieving the situation of  congestion in the Abbotsford schools,.  It .was suggested that Abbotsford  boundaries be increased to inelu'.ij?  surrounding acreage in Matsqui a-vd  Sumas. This would give a great-M*  income and permit taxation for  building purposes.  Three public meetings were eilled.  - the Matsqui ratepayers voting I Mir  tn nna in.favor at thoir inopling; the  Abbotsford people being unanimous,  but the Sumas people only agreed by  , a majority of two. Now they fino  the fnatter is law and to comet in  force in the new year.  It is claimed that tlie meeting was  not fuily    representative,      and also  that the Council and School  should Tie,allowed ah official  the matter before their taxable property is taken from them.  ;   A protest  is goinv:    forward   from  Woth bodifls asking that action be delayed,    and    it is    understood    tjiat  tho Abbotsford people will also suggest that the law be withheld    until  July, the end of their school year  Under the. new act., the Provincial  assessor-and-tax collector will collect,  the taxes from these municipal area*  the delinquent taxes, of course, stiM  going to the .municipalities.  :ports  ARE  LOWER  BECAUSE OP  TARIKK  OTTAWA.    Dec.       10.��������� Statistics  *ia.ve been compiled by ike Bureau.of  Statistics to show six months' operation of the Eordney Emergency tariff on the affected Canadian exports  to the United States. The United  States Emergency Tariff Act was  passed by Congress on May 23, signed by the President on May _': and  became* effective on May '2S. The  emergency tariff has therefore been  ���������in operation six months and the statistics compiled by the department  compare this period with the corresponding period of last year. For  the month cf November, 1921, the  value of^ Canadian exports to the  1'nited States affected by this tariff  was $8,528,963, as compared with  $3 1,288.SOS for the corrcspondin.?,*  i month of 1920; for Ihe six months'  I period of Juno-November. ..^21,02?.,-  fl.'O, as  compared   with  .S')3,J.".'i,4'l2.  The announcement made in a  Vancouver morning paper, that Major W. D. Bruce, Pitt Meadows, had  **been joffered the'position of warden  ! of the B. C. penitentiary is a trife  premature, according to the gentleman named, when asked as to tho  veracity of the report. Major Bruce-  was campaign manager for the Eraser Valley constituency, in the recent 'election.  The Pitt Meadows farmer was th"  cause of no little concern to the Empress' hotel staff at Victoria during  the past, seven days. According to  the Colonist, he registered at the  Empress, hotel on -.the 14th inst.,  and has not been-seen since. When  called up at his home. Wednesday,  Major Bruce laughihgly explained  that he was unable to call at the  hotel on the night he left for the  Mainland and had since then requested the C. P.

For seven  years past a'reeling foreign to all the season stands tor has  mingled with the Christmas spirit. When the. turmoix oi  war and strife had passed, a wearied world rejoiced and' looked  forward'to .a better day. It is still looking forward, but.through  a veil of strife of a different character���������industrial disputes-and  lipheavels which have retarded the progress of the redajustmenl  period and prevented the speedy return to a normal basis toi,  which we had hoped. At this time the eyes of the, world arc  focused oh a certain group, upon the returns of whose deliberations will much depend the future state of the worlds  peace, and nations have united with a single purpose as nevei  before Would that we could see all sides 01 the industria.  world joining with but a single purpose as never before, forgetting selfish ambitions and petty'disputes, and giving lull swaj  to the true*meaning of the 'Christmas spirit, that "Peace 01:  earth, good will toward men" may reign in deed as well as u.  word. ;Thus does this paper express our wish ari we extend tin-  greetings for this Christmas season.  A few days ago the Liberal papers    were  asking  if . the  Meighen .government would resign in time for Mackenzie Kins  to take charge of affairs when he had his cabinet formed. Tin  King cabinet is not ready but Meighen is patiently waiting t������  be relieved of his dutiesV his resignation being already m Uk  hands of the governor-general, who. has not accepted it. Jh  knowing that, he would have to relinquish his duties as he ha?  finished up his departmental business in a manner charactens  tic of the man.  But King is finding it not so easy to form his cabinet as lu.  thought he would. There are so many qualified men for the  job that he is finding a hard time to pick those to his liking  The number of King supporters at Ottawa would , indicate tlu  census of that town should be taken right now. After the cabinet is announced there will be many disappointed souls, ano  from the looks of things at tins distance, men from British Columbia will share.iii the sorrows.

C. that would give an Ottawa job?  He, at present,, may. have his cabinet difficulties at Victoria but  they are not so strenuous, we would suppose, as that of hunting  a place to hang his at Ottawa on. Stork says he will not resign.

'    '.' *  "Honest John".  ���������J  We believe the. logical man for-a'"cabinct t)hri;U6n:at Ottawa  in Mr. Elgin Munro, of the Fraser Valley;.* lie is"a fanner, and  would havti the fanning interests at heart, and seeing that the  cabinet ministers are to have under secretaries, without salary.  to help carry on.-the duties, it should not be required of a man  that he is a past master.in the art of- politics. A few good practical ideas is all that is required; and Mr. Munro. has them.  Then, too, when we begin to think it over. Mr. Munro could  have Premier Oliver as his under secretary. Then Premier Oliver would"get there without an election.  It is not usual in the Fraser Valley to-talk much municipal  politics until after the New Year but you will notice that in some  parts of the Fraser Valley that there are many aspirants for political honors, even now, bofore Christinas. Vancouver heads the  list with a possibility of seven candidates for tlie position of  mayor for that city. In New Westminster the chief head of the  "municipal-executive will undoubtedly have many,'aspirants.  That is always the case when there are great or important questions" to settle, and New* Westminster certainly, is at the present  time the centre of attraction. Throughout the Fraser Valley  many of the reeves will go in without opposition unless there  is a change in public opinion before election day.  KNOW  VALUES   WHEN.-���������  .   .

The balmy air and glorious beauty  of a winter day in Vancouver invites  to this Paradise of the Pacific where  the grass .grows green as a June  pasture and on the evergreen coas!  & narrow strip of grey. and brown  divides the evergreen land from the  - evergreen sea. Golden, blue, purple  and'green is the vista of sky, sea,  mountain and forest while English  Kav ''stretches, blue, laughing and  limpid. The. sandy beaches of Kit-  siiano and . fjoint Grey receive the  languid-surf as it rolls up the gentle  slopes.--of the shore. The canyons  are. slashed with purple and all at  times are shrouded in great veils  ot cloud "and mist. There, is ever  the. mystery, the massiveness and  the infinite, variety of tone and  coi'oi. with always a touch of spring  , promise in the air, in the almost  bursting rose-buds, when the birds  break into song, in the tree branches,  filled" with* swelling leaf-buds. All  give the -impression of having been  drenched*, with :the sweetness and  fragrance of nature in her most  riotous spring, mood.      Well   kept  Kept  i;0M(&8 and endless paths intersect the  sylvan woods about the city and. at  every turn, the sea comes into view  and over it the watery pathway to  Victoria and  Vancouver Island.  On every side the city is bounded  by a variety of natural beauties  which can be enjoyed by one-day  boat trips, such as a run up Burrard  Inlet to Port Moody, chosen in the  early days of railway construction,  to be the western terminal. The  rustic little settlement of snacks had  visions of greatness and wealth until  the luter choice of Vancouver for  the meeting of "rail and sail." The  North Arm is a Fjord that gives the  visiting Norwegian a longing for  hjome, blue mist-topped mountains  coming down to green, blue and  black waters, with "Wigwam Inn"  and its sylvan setting at the end.  -  The industrial and commercial ad-'  vantages of the Pacific coast climate, are an important element in  the building of a great manufacturing provinces. Navigation by water is  never closed by ice, roads are seldom  blocked by snow, water-powers are  never frozen or dried up, street rail-  ways can run their cars without an  elaborate heating system,���������C, &  Canada's Census  ' Although the results of the census  of Canada taken in June last have  not yet been officially announced,  sufficient Information is availab'e  lo establish the fact that the figures  of population are going to prove  highly disappointing to those people  who, basing their calculations on  the yearly return of Immigrants entering the Dominion, had expectations of seeing a very substantial Increase in the number of people, in  Canada.  1 Each recurring decennial censu������  in'Canada brings the same disappointment. Between one,census.and  the next, hundreds of thousands, yej,  million* of immigrants are reported  as' having ���������< entered the,. Dominion.  The- vital statistics likewise report  the fact, that.the number of ��������� blrthe  oxceed deaths by many more hundreds of thousands. Yet when the  census is taken the people which  are supposed to bo here, and presumably ought to be here, are not.  in evidence. They came here but'  .they., hare disappeared. The question  which demands an answer ia: Where  have they gone,, and  why?  The Canadian Council of, Agriculture, which has been giving some  study to this problem, in a statement  recently made public, points out that  according to the returns of the, Department of Immigration, no less  than 1,812;83G Immigrants came to  thie country between April 1, ]9i.i,  and March 31, 1>921, which corresponds with the census period, also  that*, during the same period births'  in Canada.exceeded deaths by 1,140,-  0:00: In other words, that from these  two sources there' should be. an. increase in Canada's population .of 2,-  952,836, which would bring the 1911  census of population of 7,206,643 up  to 10,159;479 in* 1921. As a matter  of fact it is now confidently predicted that the census of 1921 will not  show nine million people, and possibly . not. many more  than  8,500.000.  On all sides the statement, is  heard that Canada needs a larger  population; that the future of its  railways, the ability to cfirry and ultimately pay off the huge national  debt, depends upon tlie development  of its natural resources, and that  such development can only be  brought about by a large influx of  people to do the necessary work.  The need for a strong, aggressive immigration policy is, therefore, urged.  True, there are a few voices raised  in. oppsition to such, a policy, but  they are'in.a minority.       "    ''"'"-  'Many agree such an immirgnt-aion  policy;is:necessary, and' that Canada's efforts to secure settlers of the  right type should not be spasmodic,  butp ermanent, well organized and  continuous. But ih the light 'of  past imigration returns, reports of  vital statistics, and census takings,  it is apparent that .something more  than getting people to come to  Canada is needed!' The adoption of  policies^ that will keep them here  seems to be required above everything * else.  ���������' If Canada cannot retain its native-  born sons and daughters it is idle  t&j expect .new people to come and  stay here. Clearly there is some-  thjng wrong' somewhere. If our native-born had remained at home,  anjd if we had retained the large  percentage of incoming immigrants  thfe past quarter of a century, Canada's population today would be  .double what it is, and, like compound interest, the future increase  ���������would be rapid.  ) It is our conviction, then, . that  while. Canada does need the most  wide-awake, progressive and ag-  gr.esive immigration  policy  that can  possibly be devised, and that full ad:  vantage should now be taken of tho  opoprtunity which presents Itself  throughout the world owing to the  desire of millions of people to emigrate from the old world countries,  Canada's immigration policy would  be a determination of the causes of  the drift of people away from Canada, native-born and  immigrants.  There is a, cause for it, or a combination of causes. Tlie, cause should  be ascertainable, and once ascertained it ought to be possible to apply  a remedy and remove, the cause.  Every manufacturer, financier, railway operator, merchant, professional  man,-artizan and farmer is interested  and vitally interested in. this* problem ,  The application of the needed remedy might upset man's preconceived  ideas' and- destroy long accepted and  time honored policies. But what ot it  if those Ideas and policies are the  cause of Canada's loss?  Suppose some cherished policy of  the manufacturers on the one hand,  or  the  farmers   on  the 'other  hand,  had to go by the' board, w.ould .they  not  both   be  the  gainers  by adding  millions  to the population?  Imagin������  {���������what (iif would..' mean   to   Canada's  ',manufacturerers     today"   if  all   th*  Immigrants and  native-born between  1911 and 1921 were in Canada now.  What   a   domestic   market   in   which  ���������to sell  their goods.  And what a relief in taxation, and in improved facilities   for   the   farmer   would   result,  If the Dominion's population was between ten and fiften millions instead  of less  than nine millions!  '"  The  need  of  population   is   Canada's greatest need. It is the outstanding national issue. In it is bound up  all other issues and through its solu-  ;' tion   practically   all   othep  prob'.ema  will be solved.
