THE ABBOTSFORD PO&T,.,  Published' Every Friday       ��������� ���������   ,-  ''   J, A. BATES. Editor and Proprietor  __^j*.  Huntingdon  I  3iCl  With, a liberal government at Ottawa and a liberal government at  Victoria .we find that our public men  are hiking to Ottawa, to have the big  question of better freight rates settled, so tha.t.this province can compote with other provinces for.the prai  rie markets. There ' certainly has  been something wrong with the charges made .from the east to this province.  Then there is the big question of  having Vancouver made a seaport  for the shipment of the prairie wheat  to the Oriental markets. Vancouvoi  seaport is open all the year round  and if facilities were provided so  that a large part of the wheat from  the prairios'were shipped from.-yaur  eouver it would obviate that eternal  rush in the fall,before the lakes became frozen. The .farmer of the  prairie would benefit, the port of Van  couver would benefit; the -railways  might not benefit so much' as from a  long haul,- but with' prosperity in all  parts of the dominion the benefit accruing to them would materially increase, and in the long run they  would be nothing out financially.  With two elections on for< cabinet  ' ministers the-Oliver    government    is  quite busy these days' protecting the  strength'that helps them to carry on  the government:  If these two by-elections were to  bo lost it would mean much to the  Oliver government, and it- might, be-  that a provincial election .would, 'he  considered necessary.  A society has been formed in Victoria for the purpose of securing good  government, and.^is said to be composed of members of both ��������� parties.  The association has a long way to go,  before they accomplish such" an act,  for is it not a fact that the province  of British Columbia has seen more  mismanagement .during the past four  years than at any other time during  the past' twenty years, and -that according to some people is going some'  too.- " -  This same 'society also wants' an  investigation into the affairs of the  P. G. E. and here again they will 'be  exceedingly busy- befire" they secure  that from the Oliver government.  Everyone :..appears ,tp , be . getting  very tired .of.'the long< winter in the  Fraser Valley and are hoping for the  nice-spring weather. It ls������easily' the  longest and hardest winter we have  seen for many years.-   ���������      ^  It is a hard times winter"'and with  the return of. prosperity next winter  mav be much better. ��������� .   .  This is the week of- high financing  in the Fraser Valley, as nearly all the  municipalities have^their court of revision.,.   With .a-poor year last year  and high taxation" many questions' in  I >      regard to the land are being settled  \    Land taxed a few years    when    the  /     tsnes   were  lower, 'but   was   of  not  much value, is now having a different  classification.. The. good land is being: separated' from; the-useless -and  given a different   taxation.   What is  the use of taxing gulches and rocky  land if a'.man- cannot make the land  produce enough to pay the taxes?  FORESTRY   QUESTION" COLUMN  ''.. Q. As u >school���������'- teacher I- have  been recently asked.'the question why.  a .tree should ever die.,.-Can" you nns-  .wer this1 for me? .      ' .   ���������:  -. A. .Theoretically a', tree -should  never die for .while' tho-old central  part of the trunk may decay, this is  of little moment so long as new layers are regularly put. on at the circumference. 'The'growth of a tree  Is entirely in the cambium layer at  the outer edge and not at the heart.  The fact is, of course, that trees succumb always to external causes, insect, fungus diseases, fires, excessive  cold or drought, are factors' that limit the actual life of trees. The Redwood trees on the California Coasi,'  some of them thirty-foet in diameter  hliv.e attained-an age of from three  ���������thousand to four thousand years.  There are also trees on the island of  Toneriffe, off the African coast,  ���������which are believed to be equally as  old.'  Q. Some people claim that forest  fires have actually increased the fur  bearing animals in the far,north. Is  this true? <  A. The Hudson's Bay Company  declares such a theory emphatically  untrue. They state, that repeated forest fires have gone far to oxtinguish-  for commercial .purposes the fur  bearing animals such as fox, ermine  fisher and others .in Northern Ontario  which unlike the bpaver and muskrat  are unable to take refuge from forest, fires by entering the water. .11. is  a curious fact that - the marten in  face of a forest fire will climb a tree  for safety., and usually of course falls  victim. Canada's fur trade-is decidedly menaced by .the present plague of  forest fires.  Q. Is there any way .of finding  the forest fire loss of .Quebec province  in 1921?-     .  According to the Provincial Forester, Quebec lost twelve hundred  square miles by fire, last year. This������  of. course represents" .an enormous  loss and it is the duty of every citizen who enters the.'forests".of Quebec to join hands with the fire rangers '.in making a - repetition of such  loss-impossible in 1*922. The great  ���������majority of fires doing such damage  to one of 'Quebec's great resources  were" due to human carelessness and  tiie attitude of "don't care."  Q. ' Is there any way of estimating "financially .what a shade tree in  good condition* in'front of'my' residence is worth?-Has there been any  court decision establishing, such a  point? . ��������� '  A.     In New York  state the court  V .'The  Huntingdon   -'Parent. Teacher  Association presented 'a    most interesting and  varied  entortainnient    at  the school ori .Tuesday evening, when  an illustrated"lecture on "Bees    and  * Uopkeoning"' was  given   by    Messrs.  Turnbull and Finlay and  musical in-  Lfcrvais wore    provided by    the Tapp  orchestra, Miss 13. Blatclu'ord, violin-  istrand Mr. E. \V. V.    Lunn,, tenor.  ,An excellent series of'lantern  slides  {showed many phases of' beekeeping,  tools, appliances,    methods-of handling bees and the harvesting of honey  under  various     circumstances.     The  practical  side  of  honey     production  and modern plans and-methods    explained   gave   much-information     to  the audience and the    musical artists  provided  pleasing  harmony.  ������  <rjov  RUXMKNT TO  COLLEO  T   A It HEARS  HUNTINGDON, Feb. 7.���������The delinquent school taxes of Huntingdon  and Township 20, which lies between  Straiten and the river, . are now  turned over to the provincial assessor iind collector.  Those taxes, when due, are payable  to the municipality, as .-the a roars  are included in the iS'iima'*;,. Schbol  District. ..-������������������>-,  The provincial government will  nay to the municipality the sums owing, and will charge the amounts 10  the several properties, ' and..' recover  thorn, with the general revenue tax,  at  the next government tax/sale.

In Massachusetts  the usual figure" used in-this case, is  one dollar in which case a tree having  a basal area of 254 , square, inches  would be considered worth $2.54. The'  latter.figure however is generally regarded as being far too high.  WOULD LINK UP   .  'PHONE   SYSTEMS  At the Maple Ridge .school trustees' last, meeting the .ordinary  school estimates for 1922 were made  up at 'the sum of $20,979, ,an increase of $2771 over those for 1921.  The proposed expenditure on, the separate schools and other items are as  follows:  Hammond school, ?M90;: Maple  Ridge, $22G0; Haney, $2995; Lillo-  et, $695; Alexander Robinson, $1440  Webster's Corners, $820; ..-, Albion,  $1020; Whonnock $1615; Ruskin,  $1465; high school $2240;. manual  training $644; extra expenditure on  schools, $97 5; health officer. $360;  insurance buildings, $150; transportation, $935;' insurance on pupils  transported, $1*5 0; secretary's salary,  $240; contingencies, $2500.  Owing to the small number of pupils  taking advantage of  the transportation car, it was''deemed expedient to abandon that route' and notice  was ordered to be served on the jit-  nev contractor that the service'would  cease on March "5. The pupilswill be  given   the  option   of  availing, themselves  of  the\ bewdney">_Roatt'. transportation sarvice\'by talking J*6' a certain-'point   or   returning  to ^Lillooet  school. "- '        -  The'- Webster's.

'The letter was referred to  Trustee Cunliffe.  Mr. W. R. Sellings was appointed  secretary to the- school ��������� board" at a  salary of $20 per month by the chairman's casting vote.' :  Queen of the Winter Carnival  FKUTT   GRWOERS   NAME  BOARD OF DIRECTOR?  A request is .being made to the  federal-government to construct a-tel  ephone line, at an- estimated cost of  silghtly under $50,000, between Ch'il-  liwack and Kamloops/thus affording  business houses on the coast the opportunity-to get into telephonic communication with business"houses in  the interior, at all times.   '  At present, owing to the gap ��������� between Chilliwack and Kamloops, it is  impossible to speak over the wire to  interior points, except .by. the roundabout and expensive route, via Spokane. Through the upper country  there is a network of telephone lines,  some government owned and others  owned by the B. C. Telephone Company. The filling in of the gap be  'tween Chilliwack and Kamloops  would connect up this network of  lines with the coast cities.  It is estimated that tho cost of  completing the line between-Chilliwack and Kamloops, would cost under $50,000, and that-for. the. sum  of $55,-000 the line could be completed to. Penticton, thus affording  fV-r^ct connection between 'Vancouver  and the whole of the Okanagan.  ��������� This will be one of the matters  urged upon the federal government  when, the Vancouver delegation visits  Ottawa this, month, a strong memor-  iv1 having been prepared <tor presentation to -.the ;��������� gpyernmeh.tr.v All of  these questions willrbe. reviewed at  the regular' monthly meeting of the  Vancouver board of trade on Tuesday night, at which the members of  the delegation will receive their Instructions.  Women becoming economically in-  ependent is attributed "as the cause  of increasing divorces in St. Louis,  At'the Maple Ridge Fruit Growers  Co-operative' Association annual  meeting Mr.-A. J. Crehah" impressed  the importance of thinking and acting co-operaticn. Mr. H. P. .Simpson;  president, touched upon the.unusual  conditions which prevailed' locally  and on the prairies, and' which had  resulted in discouraging returns to  the growers.

He passed awav peacefully on November-29th, 192L, at his  residence, Brocket Hall, Hatfield,  Hertfordshire, dying painlessly of  sheer old age. Lord Mount Stephen  had been living in absolute retirement for many years.  George Stephen was a Scot, born  in 1829 at Dufftown, Banffshire, and  his educational advantages were confined to what the parish school af-' j'^'  forded. Leaving school at the, early j  age of fourteen, he was apprenticed  -to a draper and dealer in dry good.*  ���������in Aberdeen. Having completed his  four years' apprenticeship, like many  'in the"'northern land, he made his  ���������way to London, 'where,..he joined a  ���������well-known firm -which - still exists  under the' shadow, of St. Paul's  Cathedral. '      -  "   .  ' It was the middle of* the 19th'cen-  tury w'hen George^ Stephen, then 31  . years of age, reached Canada in  company with his cousin, Donald  .Smith (afterwards Lord Strathcona)  In Montreal he entered the service  of his cousin, William Stephen, whe  was in the dry goods trade, and thret  years later^he went into partnership  under the style of William Stephen  & Company. Years of steady hard  work followed. In 1862 the senior  partner died, and George, acquiring  the whole business, began to manufacture cloth. This proved remunerative and he soon devoted his entire  efforts'to it, relinquishing the whole  sale trade.  George Stephen was elected a director of the Bank of Montreal, and  in 187G he was 'chosen as vice-president, and later as president.  The name of Lord Mount Stephen  will be chiefly remembered as beine;  associated with the conception and  the carrying to completion of the  C.P.R., the pioneer transcontinental  railway. He joined the small but j  determined and optimistic group of !  men who had accepted the offer of |  the Government to build the Can- i *  adian Pacific Railway. He was it& i  first president in 1881, and the first |  annual report was printed on one i  sheet of ootepaper and signed by  George Stephen. It was fitting that [ ''  he should be its fir.^t president, fc  he had put his all into it, for one  thing; for another, he had unrivalled  driving power; and, again, he had  genius for method and ���������;' 'T-\  A year after the com.-.; '= ���������'���������* -'i>"  C.

Montreal, in which he tcuk great-  pride, especially in the conservatory,  built after the English style, as we!"  as in his pictures, to which he de-  , voted much attention.  ��������� In thinking of the public welfare  of the community, Sir G-.org'c Stephen at that-period'displayed great  generosity.  Sir George Stephen re?:?r-c.i the  presidency of "the C. P.

In 188^,7  they came up the river, landing at  the old landing near the Wren ranch  a few miles from Cedar Valley, where  they were to make'their home. They  were compelled to carry their household furniture and other articles over the mile and a half road with'  nothing but a skid road the remainder of the way.

McDonald, solicitor  for J.-J. 'W. Potter;-' of Vancouver,  met 'the-"council regarding ^ roadway  to the Potter property north of the  Vye road and west of the Bingham  place. The chief .difficulty concerning this road is the draining of the  right of way. An attempt has been  made to have this done under the  Ditches and Watercourses Act, but.  other owners objected.  The councillors are convinced that  it is useless to put in a road without drainage, unless it is planked,  and as a plank road would cost about  a thousand dollars,-it is thought tho  solution is not easy.  The board of works will inspect  the ground and try to devise some  feasible scheme of relief in this instance, as in the several others following. For Mr. J. R. Craig necQc  an outlet from his property on the  prairie and also -Mr. C. R. Draiiey.  These lands have been subject to  overflow, but. the, Sumas dyking  scheme premises-immunity this year  ind the owners are-preparing for cultivation. Mr. IT. C.

Co. have agreed  to supply the council with 100 cubic  yards'of gravel at Whatcom Road as  soon as their steam shovel resumes  operations in the gravel pit at St.  Nicholas. This gravel will be 'used  to raise the Vye road and grade  where the Whatcom road turns to  cross the railroad, .thus making the  approach easier.  Engineer Humphreys will draw up  plans and specifications immediately  for the buiding of the Maher bridge  and construction will not be delayed  very long.  POSTPONED ANNUAL  MEETING OF G. W. V. A.
