State-Forester Welly, of'.Washington, is investigating the possibility  that broken bottles are sometimes the  cause of forest (Ires. - Ho says in a  letter to,various forest fire protective  associations:  "May tho mysterious origin of fires  in forest material be attributed' to  broken bottle ghiss?  "Many llres are reported ouch season by flro wardens, originating from  causes unknown, along travelled roads  and trails.'

The meeting on Saturday afternoon  of interested property owners and of  members of tho City Council  to consider the grading of St. Paul Street,  established   vory  definitely   the .fact'  that the owners are "strongly averse  from the continuation of the present  project.      No   compromise,   however,  was. arrived at.     The Mayor had no  hesitation in saying that he' attached  no- Importance to   petitions,   and   he'  threatened,to resign his office if a;pe-  tition  then presented' were persisted  in;  yet the. property .owners did not  display any alarm at this, nor did they  retreat from  their  opposition  to  the  grading proposals.    Instead  they'.tQl'd  his worship pretty plainly that it-was  the duty'p? the Mayor and the'.Coun'cil  to carry out the wishes of the people,  and that the "present attitude of contemptuous disregard of an expression  of   publie'   rfpliiloii    contrasted    very  strangely with promises made by. the  civic   fathers 'when . they, gpught'. reelection, a few weelti ago.       ,   "  8 $1.00 PER YEAR  S  IN Iii REGULATIONS  .Two tons of butter were condemned  recently in Saskatoon.

This  oe'ing the 'annual meeting for .the  election of officers, a large number  turned put,-;*,with the result that a  very enthusiastic meeting was held.  - President'-McGowan .presided:  - Tho minutes of the last ���������' meeting  were read".by Secretary Clark and  "approved, asfwas also Treasurer Mor-?  ley's report;-;   ;    "  The'election "of officers for the -ensuing., year Lthejp. -took; place, .resulting  as follows: -     ���������"' '~J'"  .

McGowan'was unanimously, re-elected .-president.      '    .  Secretary:, ,.Mr. ��������� G.' C. .Clark.i  ��������� ]   :  Treasurer:   Mr. S. A.'Morley.  The next was the executive committee to be composed of six members. Ten names were proposed, resulting in ,the following being "'.elected:- Messrs. ��������� Dr.'-Swift) P. "Munro,"  J. J. Sparrow, W. J. Ware, R.'; Av  Trethewey. and-H.  McKinnon.  <   '  A vote of, confidence was passed to  the Ottawa government,- as "was also  one to the local member, Mr. Cawley,  and  the McBride  government.  Prof. Hill Tout made a couple of  interesting speeches on the ways and  means of improving the agricultural  facilities and the aid the government  should give the farmers in regard to  small loans. The meeting-then adjourned..  Old Timers Cut it Out.  Articles were signed yesterday between'Thos. Haney and. James Best,  two well known pioneers of the district, for a chopping contest to take  place within a few days for a side  bet of $100..  Considerable good-natured rivalry  has existed between these gentlemen  as to who was the better axeman, the  controversy finally ending in the  above challenge by Mr. Haney, which  was promptly accepted by Mr. Best.  Mr. Haney is now seventy-two years  of age, his opponent being some sixty  years his junior, and each gentleman  has a host of backers, their prowess  with the axe being widely known all  through the district.  By the terms of the agreement one  cut will be made in a log not less than  fifteen inches in diameter, both to  chop on the same stick���������Haney to cut  ten feet nearer the top of the tree  selected than Best. The one making  the fastest time to capture the money.  The contest is exciting no little excitement in the town, and the result  will be awaited with interest.  Mr.   and  Mrs.   Currie  returned  on  Monday from theii' honeymoon jaunt.  Important changes in provincial  lands and forest legislation are proposed ' in the ministerial measures  brought before the Provincial Legislature, the' former rejecting the system  of the past in charging for preempted Crown lands, and offering instead free holdings for settlers, who  will be required to pay merely the' $2  record fee and' $10 for Crown'grant.  The .standard size of a holding will  continue to be 160 acres, although  power is retained in the minister of  lands to decide' as to the size of any  individual preemption, or to reject an  application entirely, if such action appears/to him'in the public interest, an  explanation of "this provision being  found possible in the fact that many  Orientals have heretofore sought to  cake advantage of the .pre-emption law  in securing possession of'. provincial  lands.  - The minister is also empowered to  allot pre-emptions, if it -is deemed in  the public- interest,- even in such reserve localities,as provincial parks.  ' As against the loss of revenue,involved in this new policy, the amendment to the Forests Act provides for  an increase of the royalty, collected on  timber cut on' Crown lands ' from  50  cents to one dollar per thousand feet,  board    measurement, . such   increase,  however, not taking effect until three  years hence.    There are also found in  the Forests Act Amendment Bill provisions extending the time for timber  holdings   surveys,  upon  recommendation of the; surveyor-general, enlarging  the prohibition of export of unsealed  timber by making such .timber and the  tugs' towing it both liable to* seizure  and confiscation; prescribing reforms  in timber markings, and increasing the  annual  collections  for  forest  protection   service   from    timber   licenses,  leases and owners of timber lands.  ' Whereas this impost has been one  cent per  acre  per annum  under the'  forestry legislation of 1912, it will be  one- and one half cent in future, the  government continuing  to contribute  dollar for dollar.  Well Known Hardware Man  will Rebuild Magnificent  Premises  Mr/ A.  Alanson,. whose    hardware ;  store   was   destroyed ,in   the    recent  fire which wiped out the Gazley block  and who has recently -purchased  the  stock    of    the   Abbotsford Hardware  Co., has decided  to remodel  his present ��������� warehouse  into    an ���������   up-to-date  hardware and furniture store.      The  plans call for a building' 30x100 feet,  covered with metal sheeting thr'ough:  out.   two   large   plate   glass   windows  in front.    The  second  storey,  which  will be used as the furniture department, Hvill   have   a  floor    space    of  30x60   feet.    Operations .,' were.-, com--  menced on the new building on Thursday and the work will be rushed' to  completion as fast as,' possible.  Mr. Alanson is one who believes in  .the bright future assured for Abbotsford, and ' deserves "the ��������� hearty > support of the; community for his energetic efforts in erecting' such' a ���������struc-'-:  ture. ', , -    " - - ' .,     '. ��������� ���������  AFTER THE HADDAD GUP  An important step forward in the  direction of good roads was taken by  the Municipality of Maple Ridge at  their Council meeting on Saturday  last, when it was decided, to purchase  a steam roller and two road graders.  The councillors were present in full  force, and all seemed anxious -to meet  the wishes of the people, as expressed  on nomination day, for a forward policy in road construction. The new  roller is to be delivered at tn"e Municipal Hall in abobut ten days.  Because of representations made to  Hon. W. J. Bowser, Attorney-General,  by stockholders in the People's Trust  Company, now in liquidation, the Minister announced that he had appointed  Mr. Herbert Lockwood, accountant, of  Vancouver, as receiver in connection  with the affairs of the company.-  Stockholders of the company in New  Westminster, Chilliwack, Kamloops,  Eburne and other places have been for  some time in communication with the  Attorney-General regarding the ap- i  pointment'of a receiver.  A meeting of the Abbotsford Football Club was held' on Saturday last  with President Hill Tout in the  chair.  It was decided that the team should  resume regular ^practice's for the  closing matches of the season. These'  will include games for the Chapman  cup, at present held by the Langley  club, and a final game with the Mission' City ��������� team for the Pladdad cup.;  providing-the latter accept the challenge recently sent them. If Mission  City does not defend the cup then  the silverware, will come to Abbotsford,. -but if they do accept, the cup  will come to our own burg just the  same." The secretary was instructed  to have the Hill Tout cup placed on  display in Mr. Campbell's (the local  jeweller)  window.  CUMBERLAND.  Field Engineer Bartlett,' of the  C. N. R., arrived in town on Sunday.  Ho is here in connection with the  bringing in of that line to Cumberland.  It is claimed that $60,000 has been  sent into Cumberland and Ladysmith  by the U. M. W. of A. during the  strike.  The Royal Neighbors, the ladies  auxiliary lodge of the Modern Woodmen of the World, of Sumas, Wash.,  are making preparations for a dance  on Friday.

LOGANBERRY POSSIBILITIES  It i9 well known that the growing  Friday, February 14, 1913  EDITORIAL.  ��������� Stumps and speculation are two of the retarding influences that  have prevented the settlement of the lands of the Fraser Valley.  " If the laud settlement in the Fraser Valley is to keep pace with the  great cities that arc springing up on Burrard Inlet and-the Fraser  River, then these two forces of stumps and speculation must be eliminated from the land and the settler permitted to cultivate our rich  and fertile soil, '   (  Of the two deterrent elements in the Fraser Valley',.the-stumps  with the trees are the worst.   Ii* other parts of the province irrigation has made an otherwise barren soil productive of bumper crops.  The settler of the Okanagan would not reside long were it not for  the modern method of' irrigation.   However, up to the present but  little, and aside from desultory discussion, nothing but individual  efforts-have been applied to the clearing of tiie land of the Fraser  Valley, and that at such expense as to be discouraging to the man  of small means���������"the man behind the hoe."   Taxes are high in the  Fraser Valley, but not high .enough to  build our roads as they  should be to make country life the pleasure desired, yet the taxes  for the upkeep and building of roads comes heavily upon the man  ,   of small means���������the man upon whom the Valley is depending to till  the."soil.   Labor is expensive and after the products are grown the  markets are limited and not easily accessible. Over poor roads the  cost of taking the products to market costs the farmer extra expense. Figuring a man and his team worth $6.00 per day, there'is  considerable to be added to the cost of raising and marketing" the  products. .Growing for the market is an expensive proposition,  even after the initial cost of clearing the land has been met.  The life of the man .who clears the land and tills the soil must  be made easier if the fertile land of the Fraser Valley is to be put  under a high state of cultivation. It is estimated that but one acre  in fifteen in the Valley is at the present time producing for the Coast  and other markets. Yet the demand of the Coast cities are such  that vegetables of all kinds, eggs, butter, etc., have to be imported.  On "the basis of supporting home industry, there appears to be a  problem to solve for the Valley.  ��������� Taxation is high, even burdensome, so it would seem that the  government with its surplus of eight or ten millions, should devise  some scheme o������ assisting the fanner. Cheap money for the farmer,  having the land for security,1 might assist, should this money "be  loaned at a low rate of interest on long time periods. This would-  encourage the wage-earner and the man of small means to own and  cultivate a piece of .land. Working-along special lines it- takes ."hut  little land to return to its owner a living. .  It would seem worth -while to have the land under cultivation.  The day is coming when the surplus, of the province wi.llbe reduced,  and unless all or nearly all the land that is capable of being under  cultivation is producing, where is the government to get its money  to .pay the expenses, incurred during these days of high financing  and the bonusing of railways? The present government has done ���������  much towards raising the financial standing and credit of this the  largest province in the Dominion, but the individual settler now  requires, that if in future years this credit is to be maintained, some  \cvy deep consideration from the government. Cheap money, cheap  powder and stump eliminating machines, with good roads, ;would  do much.  Mayor Baxter would appear to have struck a key-note that  should meet with the approval of all right thinking citizens of Vancouver. The cost of selling goods in the large departmental stores  is no doubt reduced on account of the low wages paid employees.  How can a Christian, believing in the uplifting of humanity, take  pride in purchasing goods from a store where the clerks do not  receive enough -remuneration to keep body and soul together?  "Man's inhumanity to man"- was probably never better demonstrated.  The other day an exchange was picked up and the following  was noticed: " Nearly everybody gambles in this city. There are  private clubs that keep open until 4 a.m. for this purpose." What  a bad city Vancouver, B. C, must be. Many of us have friends in  that city whom we know are not gamblers. Of course it is the duty  of the minister of the gospel to tell us of our failings. That is his  duty, but a sweeping statement like the above would lead one to  believe that never was it demonstrated more fully that "The pulpit  is the coward's castle." "  of Loganberries is in its.experimental  stage, yet -.there are a large number  of fruit growers throughout the' dis-  trlct .who are raising this luscious  fruit .with pronu~~and the following  article taken from an American exchange might be-of interest:  "Few of us realize what this industry means to the-northwest.   The Loganberry may be said to be confined  strictly to the northwest    and    only  certain parts of this region are favorable.   The Logan; is subject to winterkilling and for this reason cannot be  grown in  the East or in any  region  subject    to    heavy,      snowfall      and  , freezes.' .As .the ,Logan  can only  be  grown commercially within a comparatively small area it is certain that it is  not likely, to be overdone and that it  will prove a very profitable industry,  "The number    of ways    which the  Logan can be marketed at an economic advantage, must not be lost sight  .of.   Not only can the Logan be shipped  fresh, but-it is a berry which will dry  , and so can be shipped in the dry state.  It can be canned and made into jellies  and jams.    It can be put up in  tho  crushed form and sold to the confectionery-trade.   The juice of tho Logan  is as good and by many is considered  better than the grape juice, which has  become so popular.   We must not forget that the Logan is a comparatively  new fruit.   Kb many good qualities are  just becoming -known.    Try  to think  what it means if any one of the above  forms of marketing    should    become  firmly established.   If all these forms  of marketing should gain a foothold,  we might .not find ready acreage tp  supply the trade.   Even now there are  not "enough Logans in the northwest  to supply    the canneries alone.    Almost the entire output of Oregon was  sent to .the canneries the .past season.  Many berries were shipped fresh and.  a few were dried.   In the near future  we may look to see.  a considerable  portion of ,our Loganberries shipped to  Eastern markets    in the dry    state.  Pre'-cooling and fast train service  is  already making this.possible.  "Last year, 22 cents per pound was  offered-for the dried product and this  season the price has jumped    to    28  cents, but, aB said before, the bulk of  the crop was canned. . The output is  far from equal to the .demand^ even as  j it is, and so far no attempt has been  made to market the    Logan    in the  juice form, in the manner    of grape  juice.   -We .may .not'expect this form  of marketing until the output is much  .greater.    Logan juice    factories    will  take .care .of .any surplus which may  occur, and it would.not be surprising'  if .the juice would prove more profitable than, all other forms of marketing  combined,.as is the case in. the pineapple industry, today.    It,is very improbable  that.-we .ever    will  see an  over-production of Loganberries.  .   "It must  be remembered that  this  industry is new.    Many    people    are  doubting, as they did in the case of  the" apples a few years ago, whether  the Loganberry ".will prove a profitable  industry and whether it will be overdone.   If one, however, would look into  the real conditions, it would be found  that an over-production-of the Loganberry is not to be feared.   Even if the  apple should be overdone, and such is  very improbable, then considering the  limited range to which the Logan ��������� is  adapted, still more improbable to  think that the output will exceed: the  demand.    The apple can    be grown  very successfully    in the. East.    The  East .is beginning to wake up to its  possibilities for apple growing.   They  have studied Western methods and are  Deginning to put them into practice.  With a short rail haul to the great  masses of our population, with small  freight charge, the   Eastern    grow;er  may well compete with the Western  product.    The   Western    Loganberry  grower will have no such competition.''  can cut prices.     It takes Brains to  make a better article  NOTICE!  Having disposed of our business to H.

The Fraser Valley Publicity Bureau  must be getting in its work all right.  It is noticed that some of the up  country papers are now publishing as  a speciality items headed the "Fraser  Valley.'-  "Some men are already looking for  the tall timber. The Easter hat is  about to compete with, the scenery in  jvery community���������Ledge." That may  be, but it does not apply to "Silver-  tips."  "Rube" is organizing a company for-  the manufacturing of electric "lights  from the current magazines.  Mr. J. Scotsvold has returned alone  from an extended trip through Southern California. In this case the Abbotsford Post is an unmitigated falsifier, as it was distinctly stated in a recent issue that he would purchase two  tickets.  Don't forget the big dance to be  given by the football boys on the  21st next. This, is an event where  you can come and dance till morn,  but you musn't "kick" or get "off  side."  A number of the elite of Abbotsford visited Sumas last week to attend one of the club dances there.  They were disappointed in the way  the dance was conducted. "Ragging"  is strictly tabooed on this side of the  line.  A company known as the Hammond  Syndicate has been formed at Hammond for the purpose of investing  in Graham Island acreage.
