Transport of Liquor for Huntingdon  Rancher Leads to His Employee's  Arrest.  Henry Horsburg,  arrested  at Sumas by United States customs officers  is   held  in  the county  jail  pending  the disposition oL* his    case,    which  brings up an odd point in the illegal  liquor transportation statute.    Horsburg  Works   on  a  ranch  in  British  Columbia close to Sumas.    He had a  case     of    whisky    when    arrested,  which  he claims he had  bought in  British   Columbia  for  his  employer  and was taking it to the ranch, going  by way of Sumas from Huntingdon  in  order to  And ' beter roads.       He  disclaims any intention.of leaving the  liquor  in  this  side of the  line.    A  ruling to  determine whether he is  guilty under the law by crossing dry  territory with liquor is to be obtained.    The whisky was consigned    to  Harry    Vanderhoof,    rancher.      His  farm lies partly on    the    American  side and partly in British Columbia  to the east of Huntingdon and  Sumas City.  1 have not yet been caught. Evidently  in   the   hope   oi;   securing  forbidden  liquor the thief broke into the C. P.  R.  station ot Huntingdon one night  last week.    Entrance to the office of  the station was gained by smashing  one of the window panes and undoing the catch. Searching around the  building the burglar or burglars espied a case, which by its weight and  size, he must have thought contained the desired drink.    For some reason  or  other  he  did  not  open   the  case at the station and carried it for  some distance amidst a downpour of  rain  along  the   road    towards     the  Huntingdon school.      Here the case  was opened only to find some school  books.    Apparently disgusted at the  acquisition  of so  much  dry  literature the burglar threw his burden to  one   side   of   the   road   where   they  were found the next morning by the  children on their way to school.

An appeal is made by the  conveners for more support from the.  ladies of the district as most ot the  work'-is done by a faithful few. It  is hoped that the next report viU  be that the membership has increased.  GKI0ATER OUTPUT OF  HONEY URGRI)  Tlio annual general meeting .f the  Beekeepers' Association was held  recently in the offices of the Exhibition Association in  Vancouver.  There was an unusually large attendance,   and   the  keenest  interest  was   taken   by   all   present   in   the  various papers given and the discussions which followed.  Interest in the industry, the members assert, is undoubtedly on the increase, and although in 1917 there  were only G600 colonies of bees in-  the province as against 8932 in 1915  the number engaged in the industry'  AFTER THE MOSQUITO  A meting was held' in Abbotsford  on Thursday "afternoon which it is  hoped v> ill have good results for-the  present and future years and finally  result in the complet eradication of  the mosquito.  The Matsqui an,d Mission council  were present in full force, the Ab-  | botsford Board of Trade was represented by Messrs Hill and Alanson,  the Mission City Board by Mr. A. M.  Verchere.  A committee was appointed of the  Reeves of tho various municipalities  and the presidents of tiie hoard of  trades, wheih meeting afterwards  did   much  preliminary  'work.  It is the intention to got all the  c-.-i'iCiJs   to   unite   their   efforts   and  ���������1  at the  that ihe  '.iv   <">. i -  a!!  the boards of trade;   .-mrJ  next -meeting it is expected  Sumas council, the Chil'iwu.  cil, and the Kent Council, the Ohilli-  wack1 Board of Trade and the Agass-  iz board, together with tiie members  present  Thursday.  It is the intention to send a very  representative delegation to Victoria, representing all-these.bodies, and  every industry in this part of the  Fraser Valley, to see what assistance  the government will give in keeping  the   pest   under   control.  New Bridge at Vedder  Crossing  however quite cheerful and hopes to [June.���������Progress.  Provincial   government   engineers  together with E. D. Barrow, M. L. A.  and   Reve  J.   A.   Evans   and  others  interested,   made  an   inspection     of  the situation created at the Vedder  crossing  by  the  recent  flooding   of  the   Vedder   river.    While   there   is  nothing  definite  to  report as  a  result  of  the  .conference,  except that  a   traffic   bridge   will ' bo  built     and  a temporary structure will he'thrown  across the stream within a week or  two,  to  accommodate  traffic  in  the  p-;eantimp, it is understood that the  permanent bridge site will be where  the  bridge  existed   ten     or    twelve  years ago,  and stretching  from  the  rock point on  the  east side  to  the  rock  bluff on  the  west, and several  hundred   feet   up   stream   from   the  present bridge.      It is believed that  this is the best site under the 'aew  conditions created when    the    river  changed its course and passed to the  east end of the traffic bridge, tearing  away a large portion of the roadway  as well as the approach.    The river  bed at this point is now something  over 4 0  feet wide,  instead of about  30   before   the   flooding.   It   is   also  proposed  to  protect the bank,   and  roadways.    Much   data  was  secured  and will be taken up in all its bearings, before anything definite is announced.    It is anticipated that the  new permanent bridge will be completed before high water in May or  in the latter year was 1500 as compared with 1160 in 1915 and with  the good price and the splendid demand for the product which- prevailed last year the opinion is prevalent  that this year will see a very large  increase   in  the production.  The directors ot tho associations  met at 12 o'clock, and wound up the  business of the year. Then at 2 p.  m. the general meeting assembled.  W. H. Lewis was elected president  succeeding D. Mowat, of McKay; J.  10. Winston was elected vice-president and Wilfrid M. Smith was elected secretary-treasurer.  A hearty vote ot thanks was ton-  -dered by the meeting to      Williams  Hugh, the retiring-secretary,-for his  untiring interest in' the work of the  association.       Fifteen directors, representing the various districts covered   by the association,  were elected  At the evening session a splendid  paper on the pollenization of plants  and flowers' was given by R. C. Tre-  herne,  of  the  entomological   branch  of  the department    of    agriculture.  Following   this  a  question   box  was  opened,   and   that  the  members  are  taking an interest in the question of  agriculture was shown by the number of question asked,-those who had  undertaken to answer and the interesting    and    profitable    discussions  which  followed.  The question of forming a central ���������  beekeepers' association, which would  taken in not only the coast- district  but the Kootenays, the Okanagan  and the Island, was discussed, and  it Avas decided to at once take the  necessary steps to bring about the  formation of such an organization.  The necessity for increased production of honey was urged upon the  members. The sugar problem was  pointed out was becoming a serious  one, and beekeepers could do a great  deal to relieve the situation and at  the same time add much to their incomes. The production of honey in  the province reported last .year was  8 5.0 98  pounds.  Wilfrid M. Smith, whose post office is Dewdney, B. C \vould like to  hear from any person who wishes to  join the association. The annual fee  is $1 which includes the association  paper.

Jt is a common failing of small  towns in particular. One. may say  t.liat without seeming to extol the  larger places for thoir virtues. We  all  have our faults.  That  it  is  a  condition   extremely  damaging   no   one   can   deny.    The  prevailing spirit of a place becomes  very, contagious.'

It  is said that when tho c/.ar complained of her agitation the German chancellor, Von Buelow,-humorously ad-  Lonirie,  the gentleman     who    rules jviKetl llhn to kidnap Rosa and relieve  Russia at this moment is negotiating i Germany  of   the   most   troublesome  ' political  problem   it  had.  Patriotic. German citizens heaved  a sigh of relief when Rosa Luxemburg was sent to prison for a year  shortly .after the opening of the war  Even the government Socialists were-  glad to be rid of her. For, terror  as she is to the foes of Socialism;  Rosa lias been a greater foe still to  weaklings, cowards and compromisers on her own side. The a<itude  of Schiedmann, the leader of the regular Socialists, does not represent  the party as a whole, she declares.  Back in the peaceful days of 1913  she had made a speech accusing German oflleers of abusing-private soldiers in the barracks at- Metz. When  she was arrested on the charge of libelling the. crown prince more than  a thousand witnesses offered to testify on their own experiences in military service. After these, soldiers  had ben sent to the front she was;  brought to trial and found guilty.  Then there came a rumor that she  had been shot.    Truth came lagging  behind and it appeared that on her  release in 1916 she had been greeted at the prison gate by Liebknecht  who happened  to be at liberty that  day,   and   a  group  of  minority  Socialists  laden   with  flowers. In a  short time she was again occupying  a cell for- participating in a pacificist  demonstaration. The world heard of  th.'s through a little story allowed to  leak past the German censor.    Perhaps he believed it would cast a bad  light on the die rota Rosa.    She had  th 'own an inkwell at a policeman!  Surely ten-days added to her sentence was not too  much  for- this a-  trocity.  For ten years Rosa has urged that  Germany be made a republic. Her demand for an immediate democratization was too much for the majority  Socialists. A general strike against  the reactionary Prussian franchise  and the opening of an active republican propaganda directed against  the kaiser were her plaii3,  always  were- voted  down.  with the kaiser for the release from  prison of his dear friend, Rosa Luxemburg.- Tt is a very queer world; as  , Adam probably said when he counted  and found one rib gone.  A little gentleman named Lcnino  with. 9,.pock marked face, acts as  peace, arbitrator in ono of the great  moments of world's history.  Some people say that he got  53,000,000 from Germany. Others  say'.that he is,a sincere enthusiast.  Perhaps it is about half and half.  The known fact is that lie la deeply  In love with a Jewish woman named  Rosa Luxemburg. They lived very  near each other in' Switzerland before it was safe for Lenine to go to  Russia.  Rosa Luxemburg taught Lenine to  .   think. '  At present Lenine is  the dictator  -of Russia and Rosa    Luxemburg    is  .  locked up by the kaiser in a Prussian prison. -  -,   Those  that'like to     study    little  tilings  may ask  themselves:   "What  -will the kaiser get for letting Rosa  Luxemburg go  free, and  rejoin her  friend with the spotted  face?    How  big a part  does this young  woman  in the Prussian jail play in the hist-  ,ory   of  the  world  at  this   moment"  Thus  writes  Arthur  Brisbane,   in  his newspaper.the Washington Times  A socialist by all except public con-  fession,  he  undoubtedly  is  in close  touch with radical concerns.      Love  affairs before this have changed the  history of nations,'but Lenine at 5 0  and Red Rosa at 45 would seem to  be beginning rather late in life.  Women have taken an active part  in Socialist affairs in Germany, possibly because the party stands alone  in its support of equal suffrage. As a  writer and speaker, and as an oditor  "of Vorwarts, Rosa, with Karl  l,ieb-  knecht, has been a leader of the ra-  '   dioal wing of the Social Democrats.  .Undoubtedly on social and political  questions Rosa Luxemburg and Nikolai Lenine possess hearts that beat  as one.       In William English    Wal-  ling's book, "The Socialists and the  War" it is related that Lenine, whom  Wolling called "a famous Socialist''  and   Rosa  were  the  backers  of  an  anti-war resolution at the internal-'  ionalist congress in Stuttgart In 1907  This  contained  the  threat  and prediction of revolution in all the countries  of Europe, and  urged  that  in  case  war should  break  out  the  Socialists  should   take     measures     to  ���������overthrow capitalist rule.  Rosa was born in Russian Poland  She served a term of imprisonment  under the czar and later became a  citizen, of Germany. Her life has  been a self-sacrifcing one and a reproach to some of the official Socialists who think more of their comfort than of tho cause. Pfer charity  is famous. The poor and- unfortunate always found help in her little  apartment on the south side oe Berlin.  Fighting always for her cause and  /not for herself, she has been unter-  rifled by Imprisonment. From hor cell  Bhe sent a greeting to English working people on the .first Christmas of  tho war which revealed the hope that  tho Socialists of Germany would  cease to support tho autocracy. It  read as published in a London labor  paper:  "Already aftor a few months of  war the jingo intoxication which animated the working classes of Germany is passing away, and although  thoy have been deserted by their  leader in this groat historic hour,  their sense is returning and every  day the number of workers who  blush with shame and anger at the  thought of what is going on today  grows.''  In addition to fighting the kaiser  Rosa always carried on a vigorous  propaganda against the Russian czar  ism. She was the head of a German organization which aided the escape of hundreds of Lenine's compatriots from Siberia.    Being a for-  COAL'for-DELIVERY  Abbotsford Feed Store  Cash With  Order  . H.

The annual statement was read  by the auditor, Mr. J. A. Barr, which  showed that for the past year the  company had had a fairly sucessl'ul  one ;but the recent ice storm coming  had placed the company in rather a  difficult position.  The main business of the meeting  was to appoint two directors for the  year, to take the place of T. H.  Northcote, resigned, and J. H. Lawrence, whose term expired.  A. A. Lane was appointed director  to take the place of T. H. Northcote  and  E.   Bush  to   take   tli   cplace  of  J.   H.  Lawrence,   the   latter  causing  some little excitement by an election.
