IIZI  A������ ^fl',   '  'jMMiwwanmwMiauMtuMMiimtna^v  The different municipalities  hroughout the Fraser Valley  voted on the half holiday bylaw  on Saturday last, and the res'uli  in all cases except two is that  Wednesday . is the ' chosen , day  Tor the half holiday.  The large cities have also  chosen Wednesday.  Then all have their half holiday on Wednesday afternoon  except Mission City, Delta and  Chilliwack.  For the sake of business interests -would it or would it not  be well to make it unanimous  so far as Mission City is concerned?  Abbotsford' has not kept the  half holiday with the exception  of a couple of weeks although  the post office is closed every  Friday afternoon. In common  with other business centres the  merchants here should, we believe close their stores.  There is no reason- why Abbotsford should not have the  half holiday, as it will not hurt  business now that all surrounding places are closed.  It may be that the time is not  far distant when the Bast will  give the West far more consideration than it has done ill the  past. It is about time that the  wise Easterner took a tumble tc  himself and faced matters in a  true Canadian light. This everlasting pulling to keep everything that is good in the way  of an industry in the East is not  in the best interests of Canada.  B. C .has a Manufacturers Association of its own, why is  this? We understand the prairie provinces do not pull with  the East. There must be a reason.  The Monetary Times of Toronto said recently: "The voice  of the West must be given a  better ear by the East. The  East must take the initiative in  trying to get a state of affairs  more pleasing to the West and  beneficial to both. A few manufacturers, loaning men and  bankers have recognized that  fact. As a.result they and the  farmers are already on better  terms."  The brightest business men  are in the West, but so long as  the East hinder capital from  coming west to develop the natural resources then so long, will  Canadian industries fail to compete with those of other countries of equal natural resources.  While the East is growing  rich during these war times the  West is sending proportionately  more men according to population, and still holding up her  end when it comes to Pay! Pay!  during a financial stress in the  province.  If the East would boost for all  kinds of capital for the West  it would be a grand thing for  our mining, lumbering and ship  building, and other   industries.

One day last week a portly old  gentleman came in to pay his  subscription to the JFraser Valley Record, and the editor rejoiced at seeing money in sight  said, You have some money for  me? "Yes," was the reply, "but  it is a mighty poor investment."  The editor took the money and  gave a receipt, feeling just as  happy as though he had more  sense.  Shortly a lady came in on other business, and casually mentioned' that the editor must be  "a poor canvasser" as she did  not take the paper. But all is  well she has the receipt and the  edicor has the dollar, spent for  gasoline at 40^ a gallon.  Then in came a man whom  we had forgotten we had on  the subscription list, and would  you believe it he paid up to date  and then some, remarking that  it was good to have the burden  oil his mind.
