The purchasing committee reported that they had asked for  tenders for linen supplies and that  these tenders, would be dealt with at  the next meeting.-'The executive officers were to see to the cutting of  the linen supplies and the ladies were  asked ,to do the sewing and all who  could assist were to hand in their  names, by phone or otherwise, to  Mrs. Preston, Mrs. McMenemy or to  any of the committee.

''Although '  the majority, of the deltgates favored  the establishment of the first group  in'the province, few were willing to  accept tho responsibility of obligating their respective locals to an organization which would be in control  of affairs throughout the country districts and were more in line wit.li tho  suggestion that the deliberations  cf the . session be referred back to  the locals foi' further discussion'.  Commencing, with a luncheon at  the Russell Hotel, where Mayor J. J:  Johnston and President 'Ross Smith  of the New Westminster Retail-Merchants' Association welcomed the  delegates to the city, a full discussion of the present status of the retail merchants through the Valley  was entered into at the Board ot  Trade rooms, where-some interesting  addresses were delivered.

Mr. F   J.  R. Whitchelo started the ball rolling."  on this subject when he    slated that  thirty to forty per cent, of the goods  brought into his country entered free  of duty.   The Sumas'   merchants <are'  not at all backward to this method of  evading duty payments some of them  he averred, having    gone to    the expense of fitting up ladies'    dressing  rooms wtiere string, pins    and other  "what-nots" are    provided in    order  that purchases may be    stowed away  on the person, far fr4$& the    prying-  eyes of the officials.    The    remedy  thought Mr. Whitchelo would be for  the transfer of officials from one- station to another after a certain peiiod  and also^ the    appointment of, more  women inspectors.  Mr. E. Hardie, White Rock, supported the Abbotsford business man  when he stated that the traffic worked a hardship on Canadian merchants, while Mr. Barge, a former  immigration official, declared that  the government did not back up the  efforts of the officers.

Somebody is getting cold feet politically in this province and wo    were  jusL wondering who it was���������whethoi  it was the Liberals or the Conserva  tives.   Aft  have    com  there is a little coldness on both  sides. Now which side has' tho worst  attack we are not prepared to say definitely; but what we do know is that.  the Liberals are making the most  noise, about it and the Liberals, besides wanting to get. rid of their own  ��������� leader want to get rid of the Conservative  leader  too.  We do not blame the Liberals for  trying to get rid of the present government at Victoria, as taking their  own ,\vord for it, the Victoria aggregation lost for th,is province Liberal  representation at Ottawa, a thing  most devoutedly to be desired. Wo  have read somewhere, perhaps in a  Vancouver .daily that the record of  the Oliver government was such that  it made Liberals of the - province  around'election time think that if  they had a Liberal government at Ottawa it' might act the same way as  they did in this -province���������towards  the end of disrupting the party.  There is good copy for the^ian who  will get out. and write an editoral on  the different kinds of provincial Liberals and their aims and objects. But  notwithstanding the good old Liberal principles stiil prevail where there  is the object of carrying them' out,  but to become effective they must be  carried out���������r-but as some Liberals'  say, not by the Victoria plan.  The following taken from the Vancouver World is characteristic of the  keen interest that is being   taken by  the Liberals in the change of leadership for .the'Conservative    party.    It'  .".is/an excellent    example of cold feet  "cri "the part of the would-be political  housecleaners who should first show  capabilities of    keeping    their-   own  fireside a" place of admiration.  "Lieut,-Col. Flick of Victoria, who  proposes to depose Mr, W. J. Bowser  from the leadership of-the Conservative'party on the promise to give lrim  the attorney-generalship in the event  of Mr. Bowser's' successor forming a  "government, must surely be an innocent adventurer, into Conservative  politics in,this province. It would be  interesting to'recall Mr. Bowsei; to  the witness stand in the "game en^  quiry���������-where his 'own -counsel has  been questioning witnesses in regard  to their politics���������and. find out what  he thinks of Lieut.-Col. Flick and  liis   proposal.  "The removal of Mr. Bowser from  the leadership of his party- would undoubtedly help to lift political life in  this province from "the. realm of personalities and pettiness. But to retain Mr. Bowser in reserve with a  first mortgage on the attorney-generalship would not help the Conservative party in its proper ambition to  attain power'. It would be too reminiscent of old Aesop's picture of the  lion in the ass's, skin.  PROFITS    1 ROM   EDUCATION  "The truth of the matter is that all  the serious grievances of this province were incubated during that period of its history when Mr. Bowser  was attorney-general of the province as nominal second in command  under Sir Richard McBride, a much  more astute politician than Dr. Tol-  mie, whom Lieut.-Col. Flick would  put forward as Mr. Bowser's, frontispiece. Sales of public lands to alien  speculators, the pledging of the provincial credit for'the construction of  the C. N. R. road and the P. G. E.  Ry., the Kitsilano Reserve purchase?  and numerous other unforgotten matters were the fruits of Mr. Bowser's  attorney-generalship.  "No friend of Dr. Tolmie will desire to put him in the position that  the late Sir Richard occupied prior  to his resignation of the premiership  in favor of his former colleague."  Threatened men, we know, live  long. But it really seems that signs  portend that a Provincial election  will be held at no distant date. That  being so, it will be well for the Conservative party to lie prepared for  such an event.  We clo not mean only preparation  of the usual election machinery common to party politics in general, but  we mean that the' Conservatives of  tlieV-^-P'r'ovince-^'should be at one: in  the matter of.a-Leader. .     ..  In one camikHon.; Mr. Bowser- is;  welcomed with cheers and tears: iii"  the other with hoots and groans.  Some are for Mr. |S. F. Tolmie, others pin their -faith in, and owe allegiance to, Mr. W. W. Foster, of Vancouver. All three oILthe above men-  tinned gentlemen have well served  the past, and we think that either  would make a leader worthy of a fol-  Money devoted to the building of  schools and universities, is not spent;  it is invested. This is one use of public money which never fails to produce adequate and abundant returns,  The Westminster Gazette, in a recent issue deals' with education in  paragraphs which have the real  strength of carefully stated truth,  saying:  "The same is' true of education. We  cannot draw up a balance-sheet and  say    that    fifty    millions    spent    on  schools adds so many hundred    millions to the national income, but    it  is nevertheless' obvious    that an instructed people will produce far'more  than    an    ignorant    people.       Even  though    the bulk of the    people remains in the class ,of manual    workers, this is the':. case.    Moreover,    as  Professor  Marshall  has  pointed  out,  wc simply do not know what we mivy  lose if.we derive tlie poorer children  of tlie, chance to    climb out of'   that,  class by v means'of ..the    ladder    of  free education.    The work of one industrial  genius,  he    remarks,     may  well pay for    the    education of    the  whole town he was born in, and that  of-some supreme    geniuses will    be  worth far more than that.    Only    in  rare cases- will the   education of    an  individual not pay.for itself.  "To the economic consideration we  have to add-the political. This country is now a democrasy._ All uneducated democrasy is a danger, and in  not fully.capable"of exercising. It is  manifestly a danger because people,  are entrusted with power they are  not fully capable of evercising. it is  impossible because absolute inequality cannot "permanently endure in a  democratic nation. If we give all the'  power to one class and all the  chances of prosperity to another, we  shall head straight for disaster. Free  end efficient'education gives in.some  part that equality of opportunity oh  which every democrasy will in the  long run insist." It should be possible  for the able child of the poorest parents to reach any position to which  his capacity entitles'him. If it is not  possible there can be. no true democrasy in politics and education must  go hahd-in-hand."  Giving the children a chance is the  best form of investment for public  monies. Every great extension of  educational facilities has' been marked by a corresponding rise in the  general standard of living.   '  ties that have become known, there  is little-doubt, but that the results  will be very satisfactory.

In order to obtain the best results-:  from the garden, it is a Well known  fact that good seed of the best varieties is one of the important features  \vhich will insure certain success. In  this regard many of the old standard  varieties are still giving satisfactory  results, but it is a good policy at this  season of the year to study the records of past years, to ascertain if the  crops obtained then, compare favourably with the requirements of to-day.  Procrastination on the part of  those intending to order seed may  end in disappointment, because tlie  bulk of seed orders received by seed  houses are received late in the season. Those orders that are sent in  early, are liable to receive exactly  what is asked for, whereas, orders  sent in later may receive many substitutions'.  The requirements, whether general or specific, as the case maybe,  will hav some influence of the choice  to be made. However, it is a well  known fact, and most people are well  agreed upon it, that carliness, yielding ability, uniformity and quality  are the chief deciding factors when  making a choice of varieties for a  garden, whether commercial or for  home use. it is here, that discrimination has to be applied, because,  there are many novelties being offered which may prove satisfactory  and may be not.

ADVERTISING IS  AN  MODEL "490" TOURING CAR  UNSEEN FORCB  The force of advertising is invisible but you can feel it and Ernest G.  Hastings, managing editor of tlie  Dry Goods Economist, tells a story  of a conversation between an advertising man and a merchant that illustrates the point in interesting  fashion.

There  are 7,000 low school pupils', and by  September there will be 1,000 more.  Instead of building a new :��������� high  school to relieve congestion in the  present building, Mr. Gray suggests  the construction of a technical school  and the, transfer to this technical  school from the < high "school of all  manual training and domestic science  work. This would relieve much of  tho pressure ou the high school.

After   spending a   few rbys in  the  historic city  they  went  to  Montreal  where    they    were    entertained    by  many  French-Canadian Societies.    .'

The journalists gathered what data  tb-^y could regarding1 journalistic  achievements in Western Canada.  These facts were given .'to them by  .William F. Luxton, editor of the  Manitoba Free Press, and the dean  of newspaperdom in the-West. The  Free Press was'established in 1872.  and it had grown to be a. political  power in Canada. It championed  the cause of the Liberal party.  The Nor' Wester, which was the  iloneer newspaper of the West, carried the only news the settlers read-  in the earlier days. It flourished for  several years, and "died"' shortly  after the suppression of the Rie!  Rebellion. The Manitoban, and tha  News Letter both had short lives.  'hey were followed bv The Metis, a  French newspaper. It also met an  early death. The fate of The. Metis  interested the visiting'French, journalists, who secured copie.3 of it to  take back to France. ���������  The journalists then went to Toronto, then'to Montreal, then to Quebec over the Canadian Pacific, Railway lines, embarking on a steamer  at Quebec for 'the voyage down the"  St. Lawrence River and acrosa tha  Atlantic  Ocean  to France.      , ,  l^mm ���������***���������-*"���������^������������������"��������� ������������������ Tirnn ni>m������������iii<pnw������������tiiiiniiTin i ��������� -^ -~ ���������  ��������� -f ��������� ���������.-������ ��������� ���������  AESOP'S ADVERTISING  FABLE  Once upon a Time*there lived a Merchant  Prince who inserted a small ADVERTISING Card  in his local paper.
