''I see no cause for pessisism at  all in the New Year in British Columbia," said Premier John Oliver,  who was in Vancouver on Monday in  connection with P. G. E." railway matters and was invited-to -give the peor  pie of British Columbia a New Year  message. "We'have ,got plenty of  opportunity for development;we have  plenty of natural wealth. It requires simply the application of capital and labor to it in an intelligent  manner to produce the necessary happy results. Our future depends very  largely on how that problem is grappled with.  "Even with the return of our soldiers, there should be no fear of unemployment if the matter is properly  handled. There has got to be a willingness to invest on the part of those  with capital and there must be a  willingness to give value in return  on the part of labor. Unless you can  get tho proper combination of the  two, you cannot bring about the conditions desired.  "I think if labor is reasonable,  there will be a willingness to invest.  If labor is not reasonable, investment  will not be made, consequently a  great deal depends upon the attitude  of the worker.  "You can take it for one dead sure  thing capital will not be invested  unless some reasonable prospect of return. Wo have not reached that stage yet where men with  money are willing to throw it away.  I think prospects on the whole arc  encouraging. It is not going, to be  an easy matter but I see no reason  for pessimism.  "In" farming you have to prepare  your ground, put in the seed and cultivate iI, before you get'a crop," added tho Premier, when asked if lie a-  greed with some of the rosy visions  of British Columbia's prosperity In  the immediate future which some re-  construclionists have been inspired  with.  "That work has not yet been done  for the millenium," continued the  Premier, "and in British Columbia  we have got to prepare the ground  and put in the seed before we aro  going to reap. Any person who imagines the harvest is. going to come  without preparatory work is, in my  opinion,  mistaken."  ���������FUTURE MAY HAVE BURDENS  BUT OUR HERITAGE JS GREAT"  Is Message of Sir Robert Borden to  Canadians  Walch Abbotsford grow in   1010.  Ottawa, .'Dec. 31.���������Sir Ribert Borden has-addressed the following New-  Year's the Candian people  "London, Dec. 30, 1918.���������To the  people of Canada: ' We enter the  New Year upon the morrow of the  most startling and significant events  ever chronicled in the history of humanity. During the last two months  great empires have been extinguished  governments founded in absolutism  have crashed, nationalities long held  in boudage have been liberated, new  nations", and with them, untried international relationships have sprung  into existence.  "Four years ago our country, absorbed as it was in internal problems  of development, was inevitably  .brought into a conflict which vitally  acected the destiny of the Britannic  states. The deliberations now in progress for Lhe assuring the world's  peace are thus of infinite concern to  us, as to all the nations. I realize  that my duty as prime minister demands'my close attention to the affairs of the people," who more than a  year ago entrusted me with so high  a mandate; but I am convinced that  during these deliberations, or at least  until definite conclusions shall have  been readied, my first duty to my  country demands my presence here.  As Canadian had worthily and unselfishly take a proud part in the struggle now happily ended, so must she  take a not less worthy and conspicuous achieving results without which her sacrifices and that of  all the nations would bo meaningless.  "The burdens with which the future confronts us aro heavy, hut they  are insignificant, in conipai'ion with  tlie heritage which is ours. With  solemn thank fulness for tlie blessing  of peace and animated, in spite of  war-weariness, by the spirit which  lias hitherto maintained our purpose,  let us face the New Year with courage, with determination and with  confidence."  (Signed) R. L. BORDEN  MISSION CITY FOOTBALLERS-  WINS OVER ABBOTSFORD  Miss Jeannie and Jessie Anderson  are home from Bellingham.  At a return match here on New  Year the Mission City footballers put  it all over Abbotsford in a grand  game of football on tlie Agricultural  grounds, winning a score of 4 to 0 in  favor of Mission City.  For four hours on Friday last re-  ��������� prosontatives of' Fraser Valley communities were "in session at Chilliwack regarding the Mosquito Pest  Control Bill. The minister of agriculture, Mr. Barrow, M. L. A., was  among those present, w'hile C. E. Tis-  dall and F. B. Lucas, detailed and  explained the. 27 sections suggested  by the latter as necessary in the proposed "Mo.squito Control Act" which  the minister has been requested to  assume control of as a government  measure in the next session of the  legislature.  The Act according to schedule A.  will include all ;,.'the municipalities  from Kent westward, excepting only  Chilliwack and New- Westminster  cities, and Point Grey and South  Vancouver. Schedule B gives local  boundaries subject to a survey.  Schedule C suggests as a basis for  the act an assessment up to $ 15,000  for one year only, as follows:  Delta, Richmond, Lauglcy, Surrey  Kent, Maple Ridge, Port Coquitlam.  Pitt Meadows,-^feoTruitlam Municipality,- Port Moody,' B'urnaby, share be-  5 i er cent of the necessary sum required. Mission, Matsqui, Sumas  and Chilliwack municipality are each  ������������������.sHCESod at 7 1-2 per cent., Fraser  Mills at 2 1-2 per cent, and the government on account of unorganized  territory 12 1-2 per cent.  The majority of the clauses were  adopted with little alteration or discussion, but certain of them were  strongly opposed. Amongst others,  Reeve Sullivan held that mosquities  in Surrey "were not worth speaking  of." Mayor Ash well protested against  Chilliwack City being asessed and  won out. He said that the mosquitoes like the money spent in Chilliwack all came from the country.  Reeve Evans and his colleagues could  see no reason why the city should  not pay if the municipality had to.  Discussion became strenuous until  Mr. Tisdall pointed out that the  meeting was not passing the bill, but  only considering what met. their  views and that the legislature would  settle the terms finally. Reeve Mc-  Rae, of Kent, fought strenously a-  gainst being assessed five per cent,  and Reeve Sullivan fought against  the exclusion of certain municipalities from tlie operation of the act. A  vote eventually included three districts. Langley, it was held, drew its  mosquitoes from Glen Valley, and  Mr. Tisdall apparently had never seen  mosquitoes in the Delta, Richmond  or Sea Island, though resident many  years.  Much criticism was indulged in  regarding the value of "professional  engineers," one delegate instancing  the Delta waterworks and other .'expert advice.  Mr. Barrow, who throughout was  most interested and had the necessities very clearly in mind, spoke several times and emphasized the need  of land reclamation, drainage and  oiling. He thought the necessary  funds for initial work could be made  available from the Federal Government grant for increasing production In British Columbia up to certain  limits. It was generally felt that a  difficulty would arise in meeting tho;  residents' views as to tlie pro rata  liability for each district,    but    Mr.  The rumor that Councillor Melander will, enter the reeve lists to oppose Mr. P. Tow Ian is without any  foundation whatever: he will probably seek re-election as-councillor.  Reeve McCalium and Mr. Towlan  will both run for reeve.  '' Councillor Aish, at present in the  Antipodes, is to be opposed by at  least three candidates, Mr. Wm Elliott will be in the field again, Mr.  C Crist is being spoken of and Mr.  W. Beharrell is also expected 'by his  friends to-take, the seat. There is  however no-evidence of opp-jsui^a to  ������"oun. McLean, tut- against Co.un.  Phinney, Mr. Pat Conroy of Gifford  hopes to claim a victory.  PERSONALS  Chilliwack  Mr. C. A. Barber, who has been  editor of the Chilliwack Progress for  six years, has resigned, and will probably start out for himself..  The town has quite recovered from  the meeting held here by the Mosquito delegation. The mayor impressed  upon them the fact that there wero  no mosquitoes in Chilliwack city, that,  they  all  come from  the country.'  Mr. Stacey will hold a public meeting on-the 14th to talk federal matters over.  Last Sad Rites  (From the Fraser Valley Record)  -The funeral'of the late Mr. A'.'

I've   been   bad;    I'm   just   an  average man,  So  take my word  for what it's  worth  and  trust  moil' you can.  This all of course is my say so and only one am I,  If you  would  have it otherwise, advise me how and  why.  Now I have known all sorts of men these many, many  years  And some very wise, some otherwise 'and few indeed  wore seers.  And  resolute on New Year's  day���������Ihey  would  most  surely balk.  And so I hope that you may see the wherefore of my  text  'Cause every day  begins a year and  one's as good's  "the next.  Each morning come, this year I'll make my little vow,  will 1:  I'll not resolve that 1 will do, but just say that I'll  try. George K. Coryell  The coming year should see many changes in  the  Fraser, Valley and all the towns in it.    Changes that  may be only a forerunner of what we may expect in  the near future.     British   Columbia in  the  next   ten  years should have more development than has taken  place during the past quarter of a<century. We have  the  raw  products   for   the  period   of  reconstruction;  Ave have the soil for producing, and produce at least  enough for our own consumption, and still have a little left for a neighbor or two;  we have the climate  for  those  who   on   the  prairies   become   weary   of  a  cold climate, and our climate might even tempt some  from other countries should the opportunities be taken advantage of���������the opportunities of a new country.  But we must get ready for all this, get good roads,  keep down the taxes and generally .make the country  a likely and a lovely ono to live in.  What plans have you made to help out your part  of the up-building that is to take place? I-fave you  made any plans, or are you drifting?  There is no class of British Columbian better fitted'  to take his place in the coming prosperity than the  man who is a member of and takes an active part in  the Dairymen's Association of the Lower Fraser Valley. ��������� This is getting to be a grand organisation���������one  that its members should be proud to belong to. No  more does tho middleman say to the Dairymen: "You  will take what we give you." The dairymen are in  tho position now of saying 'we are going to do so  and so, we trust it will suit you, but if it don't suit  you we can get along without you.'  Would not that be a good position for tlie fruit  grower'tobe" In? The fruit growers know how to do  It, but if they don't they know where there is a very  good example to follow.  A  MENACE  AXD  A  FAILURE  Hiatory records ljut few instances of socialism having done anything toward advancing the phyical,- mental or moral conditions of'a community or a nation.  So far socialism is the mystic dream book of the  mentally altruistic faker; who, however, is himself  practical enough to wish to give somebody else  something for nothing; provided, of course, that he  Is personally paid for the transaction.  To the advanced socialist leader it appears to be  such an easy task to relievw the needs of the improvident by pointing to the personal and collective  wealth "of those who struggled hard for n competency  and declare: "There is the solution of the whole  problem! Your neighbor possesses more than you:  go help yourself! Go attack him, and reduce him to  your own social and financial level!" Sounds sort of  silly, doesn't it? But they are doing that very same  thing in Russia and Central  Europe today.  The word "socialism" does not always bntray the  sinister meaning which, were it properly defined, it  would convey. It, as a word, is one of the most  skillfully constructed bunch of innocent looking let-  tors ever used as a camouflage to conceal a true interpretation. And, furthermore tho word socialim has  not been abused by those who oppose it and the  things  for which   it. stands.  Tho educated world'today looks at socialism as a '  means used to disgrace decent manhood; as a dire  potential threat hurled into the very teeth" oi! national lav.* and order; as a monstrous combination of words'  and deeds to bo used in an effort to disrupt society,  and to level to the ground tlie structure of 'jane govern in on t.  Socialism bears no relationship to democracy;  and  the physical  arguments  being coudutcd  in the name  of super-socialism in Europe pro\e  that Ihe socialist  is more the autocrat than w;:s ho who abdicated the  Prussian . throne.     Fritz   Ebert   is   a   German   supor-  socialist   democrat,     lie" is   the   son   of   aliicdelberg  journeyman-   tailor;   being   himself   a   ha'rncssmaker;  one time editor of-the Burger-Zeitung; also secretary  of a labor union;  affiliated himself with  the German  Working Youths' Association,- which was thoasknow-  ledged school of socialism throughout Europe.  Later  he  was appointed  to the executive committee of  the  socialist   national   organization; "was   elected   to   the  reichstag in  JO J 2, and became chairman of his party  in  3 913. '    ,        .  Fritz Ebert was educated by the proletariat; h-s was  supported by tho common people; whatever political  success he enjoyed was due entirely to the wage earners' confidence in him. He accepted election to the  reichstag with the openly avowed intention of advancing the noninilifaristie ideal of the common-people. He arrayed the masses against the clases; iio  fired the brains of the working people again! the  governing class.  Now  had   Fritz   Ebert gone  along  in  a  consistent  manner attacking Germany's rotten system of autocracy, all would have been well.     But he did not!   I-le  betrayed ,the  political   trust imposed   in   him and   dc- ���������  libr'ately trade:! his inuuence, his prestige, his power, -his personality, for what?     Fritz Ebert supported  Germany :��������������������������� war program beyond (.he limit;   ho .hacked  up Von Bethmaiin-l-lolhvcgg; he voted for the I. re in end  ous   German warloan,to   bo  used  as  a   murder   fund  against (lie masses and classes alike of Belgium, Serbia and  Franco. ���������        '  There's your Fritz Ebert! There's your true mouth  piece of the Socialistic party! Thcre'san example of  forceful, temperamental, dynamic brain playing  with tlie destiny of millions of people. There's tho  man who, like'Licbknecht, would prostitute his calling for personal power ,ego, riches, class privileges  and admiration.  You call  this an  isolated case?    Not so!     Leninc,  Bergo.r, Trotzky, Schicdemann, Bernstein,  Hilquit, all  loaders, all promoters, all agitators against an established   form   of  recognized   government.    And   there  are  thousands  and  more  than  thousands" such  leaders   who  always   fail   to  put  into  practical   channels  the visions of the good things (?) so glibly promised.  Anarchy, red terror,    Bolshevist���������all    names,    nil  labels, all expressions of a decayed theory that, wh-'n  it did bear fruit, bore only Dead sea fruit!     It is admitted no government is or can be perfect.    But it !s  a most dangerous proposition to offer an untried substitute.  Under the head of socialism exist the other institutions of I. W. W.-ism and practicers of sabotage. The  anarchist always proclaims himself the super.-socialist.  Does the responsibility rest upon the .recognized socialist propaganda? It does. ' If tlie' history of the  last four years, and.particularly of the last few months  does not prove it then the researcher into contemporaneous physical and political history has read,  studied and viewed wrongly.  Socialism has always wished to internationalize  itself. It has never been particularly devoted to the  ideals of its own nation. Socialists, from Bellamy  and Besant'and Leadbetter, have longed to work out  the theory of a universal hierarchy of spiritism, politics, religion and physical advancement. They wish to  brush aside restraint; they wish to create new and  untried standards. So far they have made a complete  muddle of tlie whole transaction, and in sheer desperation they are deliberately shifting the blame from  actual conditions onto the shoulders of repudiated  persons.  Socialism is a dead issue. It proclaimed no greater truth than its own dreary, drab failure; its red  flag has become a menace and its mysterious constitution is a jumble of resolution's as dead as the autocratic constitution of German Junkerdom.  rj'he  Red  Rag Of Anarchy  The thing was made from a bit of rag,  Dyed in the blood of unreasonable hate; .  Not a bar, or a stripe;  not a star on its field,  Not a word nor a motto inscribed on shield,  It would not wave on  the buoyant air,  But dropped like an object of black despair; ���������  For 'twas dipped in a vat of blood-red hate  By the hand of  those who'd destroy the state.  Yet they called it what it never could be���������a flag.  _ Oh, tlie thing -was mado from a bit of rag  Torn from  the corpse of Hungry Greed.  It could not Moat, nor snap to the wind,  But dragged like a soul that icnew it had sinned.  And those ���������who' would follow this grotesque thing  Sorrow and  woe to the world would bring.  Yet they march with their souls full of foul black greed  Reckoning of the terrible need  ���������Of loyalty and full-sworn faith to a nation's flag.  Oh, tho thing they chose was a blood-red rag  That had covered the breast of a despot, dead,  And the stench in Its fold was a curse on the air,  And tlie truth that it told was of black despair,  And the dread red rag has been given birth  By the scum of those who litter the earth.  Why do. they follow this-thing of red  That offers'no hope for (lie living but dread?  Why can't they gaze in reverence o'erhead  At the Emblem of Justice, America's Flag?  ���������Guy Manners, in Seattle P.-I.  Do you ever'doubt the operator when you  get this report on your call?

ARTHUR MARS TO  RUN" FOR MAYOR  PORT COQUITLAM'  Maple Ridge  The Maple Ridge  United  Farmers  Ltd. have    notified    their    members  Pte. James Grant is progressing favorably   at   tho   Coquitlam   hospital  after an operation for appendicitis.

BEFORE the war, bond buyers were "marked men."  hi number they were 40,000 in March 1917���������this . is  shown by the number of purchasers of ihe Government  War Loan of that date. But in the autumn of the  year, their number increased twenty times���������to 820,-  000! This number purchasing the Victory Loan, 1917.  Last month���������-November, 1918���������over 1,000,000 persons  purchased the Victory Loan, 1918!  These wonderful results were accomplished by Press  Advertising-.  Before the war one-half of one per cent, of our people  bought bonds. Now quite twelve and one-half per  cent, of our people are bond buyers!  Before the stupendous amount  of $670,000,000 worth of bonds  could be sold to our Canadian  people in three weeks a most  thorough and exhaustive campaign of education was necessary,-and this campaign was  carried through by advertising  in the public press. The power  of the printed word never had  a more convincing demonstration.  By means of the printed word,  through the medium of advertisements in the press of our  country, the Canadian people  were made to know what bonds  are, the nature of their security  their attractiveness as an investment, and why the Government had to sell bonds.  Every point and feature of  Victory Bonds was illustrated1  and described before and during the   campaign���������in   adver  tisements. No argument was  overlooked. No selling point  was neglected.  The result'is that Canadians today are a nation of bondholders.  They know what a convenient  safe and profitable form of investment bonds are. Instead  of one man in two hundred  owning bonds, now one Canadian in eight���������men.women and  children���������owns a Government  Security.  This complete transformation  in the national mind and habits  was brought about by advertising in the press of the nation.  Press advertising has justified  itself as the surest and speediest method by which a man's  reason can be influenced and  directed.  The Minister of Finance  acknowleges this. His own  word are:  Mr. JO. II. W'oood, Chairman of the Dominion Executive Committee having oversight  of the campaign to raise'Victory Loan, 191.8, said " * * The press publicity campaign "! * '���������' will rank as one of the most remnrkubic and efficient publicity cam  pnigtis ever undertaken in any country," and Mr. J. II. Gundy, Vico-Chairman of the'  committee said: '"'I havo boon soiling' bonds for a.long1 time, but 1 never found It so  easy to sell f.licm as at this time. The reason Is the .splendid work tlie press lias done.  I lake of liiy'linf, (o tho press of Canada."  "TJie wonderful success of'the Loan was due in large measure to  their (the press of Canada) .splendid and untiring efforts during".tlie'  whole of the Campaign."  The .success of Victory Loan, 1918, and the knowledge  which Canadians now possess of bonds are a straight  challenge to the man who doubts the power of the  printed word, in the form of advertisements, to sell  goods���������and this applies not to bonds alone, but to the  goods YOU are interested in selling.  Lieut. Arthur Mars has consented  o become a candidate for the mayoralty of the city. This is the first  attempt of Lieut.
