ABBOTSFORD ASSURED  The hick of water for domestic usu,  and more especially tov fire protection'  has been a drawback to Lhe residents  of Abbotsford  since tho  first settlor  arrived   in   tho  country.     Had   there  been adequate supply of water available  the night, the Gazley block was  destroyed .there is no doubt that'the  damage-would have been greatly lessened. ',������������������'. "   . , -  Through the energetic efforts of the  Board of 'irade a fire hall has been  erected, and  though of small  dimensions, it is still a step in the right- direction.   Indeed, it might be said that  Abbotsford  is  the  only  town  in  the  Fraser 'Valley,  under  the   Provincial  Government's jurisdiction, that has a  fire hall.   The water committee of the  Board of Trade, not to' be behind the  fire committee, held a meeting in the  office of Messrs. Taylor & Henderson  on Monday last, when the water question   was   thoroughly   discussed,   and  ways and^ means formed for the inauguration of a local stock company with  power to  install, an up-to-date  water  system for "the town.     -\   .':  ,   _jrhe..sto.ck_wJll Ibecsqld locally .only,v  ���������and it is the duty of every one who has'  the  future  interest of Abbotsford-at  heart to subscribe liberally and then  "Watch' Abbotsford Grow."

The  returns for 1912 showed that it cost  the home the sum of $9.15 per month  for each child, so that the sum contributed by the Council ($10.00 per  month) was very little" more than the  cost of the care of one child.

THE   MARKET  Friday, February 21, 1913  EDITORIAL.  The question of extending the franchise to the ladies was pre-  ��������� sented to the Premier of the Province this week, and his reply is  worthy the consideration of all. It has never been a part of the  policy of the present government, but it is easily seen that the First  Minister or his.predecessors have at one time been within range of  the Blarney stone.  "Let me say at onee,'r remarked Sir Richard McBride, upon  the last of the lady speakers having been heard, "that the govern-  1 ment very greatly appreciates the presence here this afternoon of  so large, so representative and so influential a delegation from those  who seek the franchise. Many of you have evidently performed  long journeys in order to be with your colleagues at this meeting  and take some part in the presentation of the case to which we have  all been privileged to listen. I may say that your ease has been admirably presented, concisely, clear-cut and plainly. The present administration has never made this question a matter of policy, not  because appeals had not heretofore, been made to it, but because  , upon mature consideration we have not in the past been able to  agree, that the end you seek is one to be desired.  "I recall when Mrs. Gordon Grant headed a strong committee  of ladies_some time ago and strongly urged the immediate extension  of franchise-to women. It was then concluded'by the government  that a step of this kind could not well bV undertaken. Apart from  this the records of the Provincial Legislature show that votes upon  this proposal have at various times been taken, but up to the present  nothing has been done to afford the relief which you seek. Now,  today, you bring to us a petition bearing ten thousand signatures  and tell us the story of your campaign in securing it, so that the  full weight of your argument may be felt by this administration and  by the country as well. It seems to me that'because of the very"  ... splendid effort which you and your associates haye put fortjh and  because of the petition which has been submitted here today and  the argument advanced in connection with it that I may say it will ���������  give us very great pleasure to discuss this question with the members  of the cabinet early next week and to acquaint you as soon as pos  sible with the result arrived at. -      -  "If the government does not decide to take up this question as  a matter of ministerial policy, it-will'still be quite competent for  . - you to present your petition to the Legislature through the usuai  "  channel and for any private member of the house to see that it is  given a place in the orders of the day.   As you'have shown an intimate procedure you will realize that such legislation may emanate  -with a private member���������that he may introduce a bill providing for  .all. the requirements that you have made known here toda}r.    Mr.  Place, member for Nanaimo, has already such a measure on the order  paper.   Miss Davis, your able and energetic secretary, has told us,  .    as have the number of your members, that it was not upon their  authority or by their request that it was so placed there���������that Mr.  Place's was a voluntary act���������and Mr. Place has supplemented this  information with a statement to me that if the government should  decide to introduce such legislation he. would very quickly withdraw his measure in this behalf.   I mention this to show you how  you can very easily get your petition before the house even if the  decision of. the. government should be adverse.    It-will probably  be Tuesday or Wednesday before we can acquaint you with our  determination in the matter, but I am satisfied, that'I can assure  you that it will:not be beyond that date..  Permit me to say that  your case has been stated with commendable clearness, lucidity and  directness."  Considerable is written these days about the strike in Cumberland coal mines, and the fact of a strike was well brought home to  Missionites this week.when some strikebreakers stopped off here for  the day. In reply to the Victoria Week the Vancouver Islander  published at Cumberland, B. C, has the.following to say:  " 'Discrimination against a workman is a difficult thing to  prove; although it is often suspected. The evidence is.invariably circumstantial and not always conclusive. However strongly the men  may .feel that they are right in their suspicion it is extremely doubtful if they can prove it, and if they fail to do so' they would have to  abandon their contention as untenable.'  "To this we must repeat what has already been threshed out in  Cumberland time and again.    For the information- of the Week  we know of no one who has been harshly dealt.with, or discriminated .  against, or frozen out of employment.   The case the Week refers to  is undoubtedly that, of Mottishaw, who. left this district some time  ago, and we may say that Mottishaw never acted on a gas committee  for the Cumberland mines to our knowledge.   He may have done so'  at Extension mines.   But when Mottishaw first came to Cumberland  and asked for work he was offered a job driving a mule in No  4  mine, which he refused.    Shortly after, he obtained employment  with a contractor in the same mine without first obtaining permission from the overman and was being paid a higher rate of wages  ., than that paid in the district.   To this the manager of that mine had  i\ decided objection and ordered the contractor to dispense with his  services.    The following day Mottishaw made application to the  manager of No. 4 mine for the position that he was offered in the  first case, when the manager referred him to the overman, who employed all drivers.   Mottishaw never applied to the overman, evidently not wanting the job.   Afterwards he came but with the statement that he was discriminated against, and the local- U M W of A  took a holiday."  ���������&?  With the exception of rising prices  in . the fowl and vegetable departments the market., was very steady  this morning, the prices obtained, for  meats and fish remaining the same as  last week. Although the weather was  somewhat inclement, a, drizzling rain  falling all morning, a better asssembly  of shoppers gathered than has been  the-case for several' weeks past. A  larger,number of farmers, manifestly  on account of the better roads and  .transportation facilities,' were present  with their products. and a ready demand was realized for all commodities.  The supply of poultry was not as  large as usual, hence the stiffening of  prices. This was mostly realized for  ducks, which were offered for from $9  to $18 .per dozen, and it is expected  that prices in this department will  again increase next week. The prices  for other poultry were also somewhat  better than last week. As there is  little demand for geese at this season  of the year hone were offered by the  farmers.  Potatoes still remained stationery  at $13 and $15 per ton, although onions, carrots and turnips increased  slightly. Eggs, on account of the  heavy supply, were offered by all the  vendors for 50 cents a dozen retail,  and a brisk sale was realized at that  price. Butter is still sold at 40 cents  a pound with little indication- of a  change. This week the supply of fruit  was very smart and good prices were  received for all that was offered. A  smaii " quantity "of- Russet apples  brought 25 cents for four pounds.  Meats and fish remained the same  as last week, with no indication for a  change.' A small quantity of soles  brought 10 cents a pound, othewise  there was little fresh fish.' '  ��������� The Prices.
