There are a number of people in  Matsjui very anxious to know when  the new service is going- to be put  into operation. -Now since the stub  train lias been taken oft" the milk  shippers have either to drive to Clayburn or Mission to deliver their milk  for shipment to Vancouver. As the  shipping from Mission is much handier the farmers prefer to ship from  this point, but owing to the present  ferry service it is impossible to reach  Mission City in time and without  waste of an hour to catch the ferry  -7-one ferry is too early and the next  ferry is too late.. An hour In the  early 'morning is worth money to the  dairyriien.  The Mission City Board of Trade  and the Mission Council have, taken  the matter up and it is likely that  Matsqui council will give the matter  their strong approval at the next  meeting.  It is known that the government  are in favor of extending the service  to" meet the wants of the growing  demand for transportation.  . TJhe Salmon Arm Observer says  that the municipality is going to furnish free water to the creamery ???  According to reports, which come  from an authentic source. 1000 tons  of pulp per month are being shipped  to Australia by B. C. Pulp Mills. Formerly Australia got the bulk of her  pulp, from Norway and it was carried by German vessels.  Chevalier Lugi Zuanelli. - a" prominent paper manufacturer from Italy, states that here should be a good  market in that country for B. C.  pulp and timber products. The increased transportation facilities upon  the opening of the Panama Canal  will promote,the interests of this  trade between the two countries. ���������  INTERNED UNTIL THE  WAJt  CEASES  Conrod Hirsch, a German reservist  and rancher in Harrison Lake' Dis-'  trict, was confined in Nanaimo jail  until the end of the war on Monday  last. Hirsch is the gentleman who  was sent to New Westminster for  shooting deer out of season last summer. The charge against him for  which he was interned is carrying a  gun without a license, gun licences  being refused to alien enemies.

WAS A DECIDED  SUCCESS  The concert given by the True  Blue Lodge on February 19th was a  decided success, and s much enjoyment was participated in by those  present. Though all laughed heartily at poor Pat, he was much to be  sympathized with. The parts were  acted very cleverly and if the programme had been as long as expected it is certain none would have  tired. A large number remained  for the dance and merry making  prevailed until, an early hour. The  committee are to be congratulated  on the fine success which crowned  their work.

Best take it out of politics.    .  HOW VANCOUVER CAN  ASSIST B.  C.  FRUITGROWERS  A few years ago Joe Martin would have nothing to do with  newspapers of the province. Now to'1 win political battles he  has purchased and is going to edit a good* newspaper. Go to it,  , Joe,ci many a newspaper at a politician's back has carried him  to victory. In-British Columbia, we have several examples of"  the power of the'press in promoting the aims of politicians.  With Mr. Martin's experience in political'life his purchase of  '.a paper to assist him in his aims is just another powerful as-  serton that a politician, no matter how clever, requires a good  paper behind him to assist him. We shall watch the future career of Mr. Martin after he gets his newspaper going in good  shape, under the control of his voluminous pen.  Very few papers of the province but have carefully laid away  a cut of Sir -Richard and ready for use at a moment's notice- Pie  appreciates the power of his appearance before the. public in  the. local press of the various districts .once or twice a year, but  then his curly hair gives him a pleasant appearance. Every  man woman and. child in the province know the picture of Sir  Richard without the name printed at the bottom of the picture,  at the bottom.  The late Hon. Senator Templeman was the owner of the Victoria Times.  Then there is Hon. Price Ellison with the Vernon News.  Then in the Dominion House Col. J. D. Taylor paved his way  to the House of Commons with the aid of the Columbian. It  may yet be ��������� the Senate.  When,Hewitt,Bostock started in politics iii the Yale-Cariboo  district, he secured mortgages on some of the papers, notably --   ,     c TT . .oc  ji_   -'���������fr      i    -        <V    i.-     i        iT     ���������     j-.l i- i       , .     .   ,   vet the City of.Vancouver used 25,  the Kamloops Sentinel, whose editor also entered provincial r000 cases Q\ atrawberries before tin  politics, the-Mail of Revelstoke, and .the Era of Golden; and  there may have bsen otheVs. ���������. He was elected to the House of  Commons, although afterwards it was reported he got into financial difficulties.    Once at Ottawa he had the ability to make  good and is now leader of the Senate for the Liberals-  Other instances might be quoted, not only in this province  but elsewhere, but the above is sufficient to show the power of  the press as a factor in electing politicians.  Of course there, may be a gloomy side tp .the results attained.  Instances  are  not wanting.      McConnell ,with. his vindictive  pen put him down and out and now the organ that boosted him  is on the market for another owner.  With judicious judgment and forethought Mr. Martin might  . yet- attain the premiership of the province with the.'

What City Was Able tp tlo for tlie  Apple Growers They Should Also  Do For the Strawberry Growers  Of the Province.  What the ;ity was able to do by  means of "the apple campaign in inducing consumers to give a prefor-  ence'to British Columbia apples it  will be-asked to do for the strawberry growers of British Columbia  and for other produce besides. It is  estimated that' the campaign resulted  in placing 40,000 or more boxes of  B. C: apples in the hands of Vancouver consumers than in 1913 and  it is proposed to encourage the Vancouver public this year to wait for  the local strawberry crop- in order  to do its preserving and thU3 put  some thousands of-dollars into the  hands of the growers which they are  at present losing. ,  (, Mr. R. C. Abbott, the newly-appointed market commissioner on the  Lower Mainland for the Provincial  Government addressed the markets  committee of the city council along  those lines Monday and also told  . them 'how the establishment of a  realfarmers' market here would assist the Fraser Valley" farmers in  marketing their third grade apples  and pears, which the wholesalers did  not care to handle, but which many  families would be glad to use.  Last year, in apples alone, he said  Vancouver'took 155,664 boxes of A-  merican'apples,-and this represented  a decrease of 73,000 boxes. Of British' Columbia apples, the city took  84,098 boxes which was an increase  of 50,000 boxes over 1913, and , he  thought he could estimate that the  apple campaign brought about the  sale of 42,000 of that extra number.  In strawberries, especially ,a.\f Gordon Head, the province produced a  berry equal to any in the world, and  BRITISH COLUMBIA CROP    '  v "STATISTICS  couver did not use 25,000 cases for  desert purposes; a great quantity was  used for preserving and canning.  There was no objection to using the  American strawberries for desert, but  they did' not think it was fair they  should buy that fruit for preserving  Out'of 32,"000 cases produced on this  side only 23,000 were used on the  Vancouver market and there was not  over 2 5 percent, on which the grow-:  ers got any profit. * This- summer  they were going to ask the Vancouver public to wait for the provincial  crop.

These figures show that although  the acreage under cultivation was  not as large as some of our,sister  provinces, the yields' were greater  and the prices more favorable in the  greater number of instances' These  facts should help' considerably, to  induce the farmer to. raise cereal  foods in,this province. There are  vast tracts of land 'which are not  suitable for fruit raising .within the  province, and will, in our opinion,  grow good cereal grains and feeds.  Just take note of the value placed by  the Department on these articles and  you will readily see that it is a profitable investment. ,,  There, were 12,5 00 acres of wheat  sown in 1914, yielding 29.52 bushels per acre.

We have had to learn a lot of things about the Germans in  these six months and one'of ;the. things that we have learnt is  that the Germans will never revolute because they have not the  faintest conception of anything to revolute to. There never  was a revolution in the history of the world that did.not have  some definite dream of freedom at.the back of it; and the Germans have no dream of freedoni whatever. They have never  shown the slightest sign of wanting the. freedom of the individual, the liberty of the subject to direct his life and develop his  personality as suits himself. They apparently want Germany  to be free in the fullest sense of the word; free to break her  plighted oath, free to trample upon every nation that stands in  her way, free to dictate her will to the entire world, free to lie,  to steal, to murder, to ravage, to enslave, and to praise the Germanic God withal for all these privileges. And to obtain that.  , freedom for Germany they seem to. be quite 'willing personally  to undergo a servitude compared with which the condition of  the galley-slaves of the Middle Ages was comparatively self-  respecting for the galley-slaves could at least reflect with pride  that they were not consenting to their'own degradation.  the growers had' to send their cher  ries  into the  Prairie  Provinces    to  find a market and lost half the profit they should have gotten.  There was no reason why under  proper conditions white growers  should not be producing for the Vancouver market, but the white growers in the Fraser Valley did not  supply more than 14 per cent, of  the vegetables'.'.consumed here. . He  believed that through the city market they ought to be able to reach  the consumers with a great deal of  produce.'-. So far as potatoes were  concerned, the provincial growers  had practically the whole market,  but the growers had a great chance  to get in and cut out the big importation of onions. He did not agree  with the present system at the city  market, though he did not blame the  management as much as the committee. He thought more should be  done towrds bringing the consumers  and producers together and if there  was more display there of the goods  produced it would have a good effect  The' location of the mrket did not  strike him as a very suitable one.  Replying to the question as to  whether the farmers could be induced to bring in their products and sell  it personally, he believed that in-, a  little time the white farmers would  be in a better position to do so. The  improvement in the roads and the  new bridge over the Pitt River would  bring 'Pitt Meadows arid Maple Ridge  much nearer; a great many of the  farmers were. equipping themselevs  with automobiles and he believed  that in a couple of years ninety per  cent of the farmers would be in a  position to bring in their produce. .

GOOD   ROADS Menaces, Coal Industry  The great increase in the us of  fuel oil in the province and the corresponding falling- off - in -the, consumption, of coal, has' been pressed  upon the attention of the government  by a deputation representing the coal  mining districts of Merritt and Vancouver  Island.      It was  urged that  ^   .o   ..^..^v hu.v,.,...^ ~   the   government   should   memoralize  may at all seasons reach his markets   the Federal Government for a cent'a  at a minimum of time and expense   gallon duty on fuel oil, which is on  - ' *     " -1" *       the  free list.    Last  year  there  was  brought into British Columbia an-a-  mount of oil equal to 700,000 tons  of coal. This represents so much loss  to the operators.'miners and wholesalers and retailers' and also some  $70,000 less in revenue to the-province The government promised  earnest consideration.  The campaign for good roads being carried on throughout Canada is  only part" of the general awakening  of the people to the causes which  have led to the enormous increase  in the prices of the necessaries of life  That the transportation problem is  all-important for the' farmer-producer  is   without question       Thath  he  OUTLOOK  FOR  TIMBER  An encouraging outlook for the  lumbering industry of this province  in respect to the prairie markets, is  reported by the Hon.

He looks for a considerable  development- of,the Western.territory  after, the. wa*rM.hut thinks the immigration-outlook Is somewhat problem  -atical. '      ",*' ' -  s Mr. Cushing is of t'he opinion'that  weather conditions are" fayorable for  good crops, and this should stimulate  the demand for both lumber .and fruit  from British Columbia.-' The end of  the' war should bring assuredly a  great de'inand /for lumber for construction pjurpos'e'sin the areas devastated ,by the war. to sav nothing^ of  the local demand., '-.-"'  .He notes in Alberta as in B.

A further consequence of this larger attendance will be that more attention  will be paid to the condition' of the  produce-offered by those displaying  it for sale. - - ��������� .-.   *  In the present campaign for increased production, good' roads will  play  an  important  part. Motor  transportation is being rapidly developed and utilized by the farmers  By this means greater distances can  be covered and farmers at a considerable distance from markets, with  the advent of better roads, will be  able to bring their produce to the  consumer in larger quantities and at  less expense.���������Ex.
