BUREAU BANQUETTED  BY PROGRESSIVE CLUB  The Progress Association and New  Westminster City Council entertained  the \isiting members of the Fra&er  Valley Publicity Bureau at a banquet  held .in the Premier Hotel cafe in  the evening, when some 80 persons  were present despite the inclement  weather.  Mayor Baxter made his initial appearance in the Royal City since becoming the chief magistrate of Vancouver, and -the city council was represented by Aldermen Lynch and Bry-  son. Reeves and prominent men of  the Fraser valley were there in goodly  numbers.  The needs of the Fraser valley received due attention, government aid  both in'advancing good roads and in  assisting in obtaining the necessary  money were advanced by several of  the speakers, while Mayor Gray dealt  with -publicity matters in general.  In keeping with the spirit of the  meeting, the well served spread was  in itseii: unique, everything being  grown   in  the  valley  except the  or-  (Oojnitiinued on Page Two)  ���������The annual meeting of the Publicity  Bureau was held in the Board of Trade  rooms, New Westminster, on Friday,  Jam 24. ��������� A large number of delegates  from the various BoardB'��������� of Trade  throughout' the' valley were in attendance and all expressed a feeling that  the coming year would be a banner  one for the province, and especially  for the Fraser valley.  In thanking the gathering for the  honor placed upon him Mr. Heaps declared that he took a great interest  in the Fraser valley and was always  ���������prepared to further its interests at any  opportunity'"given him. The publicity  bureau, he believed, could do a great  deal towards building up the district  and he thought it would increase in  its usefulness year by year.  Referring to .the position of New  Westminster and Vancouver he affirmed that there should be no sectional  feeling between the two places as  some day he hoped to see them one.  He did not think the establishing of  an office of the bureau in Vancouver  would detract any from the importance of New Westminster in. relation  to the Fraser valley. In fact it would  help  the Royal  City.    '  One reason . why' New Westminster  was not known so. well as'Vancouver  went on the new president was because the Terminal City was the  larger place. More people had invested money there and for that reason  more had an interest in it, and there  was more talk about it.  Gives Reasons.  To explain his point the speaker  stated that practically everybody had  heard of London just on account of  its size and general importance,  though a good many might not have  heard of Liverpool, Glasgow and a  number of other,leading cities of the  old! country, all important places.  Vancouver occupied the same position  towards New Westminster as a number of important cities in the old  country occupied to London. Mr.  Heaps' eletcion was by acclamation.  The other new officers of the  Fraser Valley Publicity Bureau are: _  Alderman Fred Lynch, New Westmin-1  ster, first vice-president; ��������� Mr. J.. A.  I Bates, of Mission City Board of Trade,  second vice-president; Councillor Bell,  of Matsqui, third vice-president; executive, Messrs. Lougheed, Maple  Ridge; Hulbert, Coquitlam; Wade,  New Westminster; Gray, Richmond;  Galer, Coquitlam; and Councillors  Coldicutt and Macpherson, Burnaby.  In order to give the south shore  municipalities that have not yet affiliated with the bureau an opportunity to have representation on the  executive board, two vacancies were  left unfilled.  Will Open Office.  By. a unanimous vote it was definitely decided to open an office in the  Progressive Club quarters, Vancouver, providing the Progress Club  offers ample free apace. It was stated  that it was first thought of placing  the bureau office* near the B. C. E: it.  depot, but this it was found would  have hardly suited conditions.  Councillor    Lougheed,     of     Maple  Ridge, speaking on this .matter, stated  that  the   Mining   Club   of  B    C.   and  the  Okanagan  and Squamish valleys  I were    to    be     represented    in ' the  Progress Club quarters, and saw no  reason why the best valley in the entire province should not be also. As  far as the identity of the bureau was  concerned he believed that it could  be easily .maintained by the appointment of a proper man as manager.  It was decided to hold the next  meeting in the new quarters at Vancouver. The bureau would be able  to inspect the exhibits at first hand,  it was pointed out. The bureau instructed the executive to. devise ways  fore the agricultural commission. In  in which information regarding the  Fraser valley could be brought be-  discussing the manner in which the  exhibits would be arranged it was  suggested and virtually agreed that  each district would have a separate  booth, and a separate display, that  all literature already printed could  be distributed, but that a booklet,  pointing out the advantages of the  valley as a whole would later be  arranged.  Satisfactory Report.  Secretary Wilkie's Report showed  that the bureau was in a good position financially. The total subscriptions since organization were $274.70,  while the disbursements had only'  amounted" to $17. On a motion Mr.  Wilkie was granted an honorarium of  $100 in recognition of his services,  and made the recipient of a hearty  vote of thanks. Mr. Wilkie was also  unanimously appointed permanent  secretary of the bureau.  The secretary of the Vancouver  Board of Trade will be requested to  explain the statement���������as reported-  made by him before the Royal Agricultural Commission to the effect that  there was no tract of land in British  Columbia contiguous or within 100  miles of Vancouver to which he could  refer prospective settlers.  Mr. Heaps thought that the Vancouver man was evidently referring to  land that could not be pre-empted.  Data and information concerning  farming and ranching conditions in  the Fraser valley will be compiled to  present to the Royal Agricultural Com-  1        (Continued on Page Four) m3m  -TUB ABBOtSff-OftD P09*I\      ABBOTSlWttD, fc. 0,  ~iT nr  THE ABBOTSFORD POST.

An enterprising Kansas merchant,  when asked what he was doing to  combat, the encroachments of the mailorder houses, aided and abetted by  the parcel post, replied���������and he spoke  well:  "I advertise.' I advertise all the  time, and by every legitimate method.  A large part of the advertising is  through the newspapers, and I am represented in every issue. I try to  make my case as strong as possible,  and never refer to a competitor at  home or to a mail-order house."  That's all the mail-order, houses are  doing to get your trade, Mr. Local  Merchant. Their houses would not  .become known but for their advertising campaigns. Big advertisers, as  well as small ones, set apart a certain  percentage of their sales for advertising expenses���������or investments as they  are termed���������one to five per cent., and  possibly more in some cases.

The buyers  were not as numerous, however, and  the supplies were equal to the occasion, a quiet market being the result.  Prices in the meat department remained about the same as last week-  with a tendency to strengthen and 'a  further increase is  expected shortly.  About twenty carcasses of pork from  Milner were sold at 12 1-2 cents per  pound wholesale, and some excellent  veal was sold at 13 1-2 cents a pound.  There was no mutton offered -wholesale this morning.  Retail prices of beef have increased  during the past few weeks and the  prices quoted were as follows: Beef,  best rib roasts, 20 to 22 cents; loin  of beef, up to 28 cents; round steak,  25 cents; boiling beef, 14* cents; pot  roast, IS cents. These prices vary a  few cents according to, the cut.  In the egg department the prices  show no change although ranchers  report a falling off in the supply.

This was replied to by Mayor Grey, who welcomed the delegates  of the bureau, and also paid a tribute  to the Progressive Association and  the Trades and Labor Council, for by  both the proposals of the city council  were regularly taken up, discussed  and action taken.  To the Fraser valley much depended upon the publicity given it. New  Westminster had during the past  three years spent some ?20,000 in this  work and had at all times put forward  the citailms of the district, feeling  that all that helped it also helped  Westminster.  In the absence of Reeve Mars the'  toast of "Good Roads" fell to Alderman Lynch, who paid a tribute to the  work of Mr. J. W. Kerr, president of  the Canadian Highways Association,  who was the next speaker.  Samuel Hill, "the father of good  roads," in Washington, came in for  an eulogy in Mr. Kerr's opening remarks. He went on to assert his belief in the establishment of more permanent roads. Paving from the start  would save money in the long run.  "I would like to see the Yale road  paved to Langley, where the Pacific  Highway branches off to Blaine," said  Mr. Kerr.  He next .illustrated how the cost of  living was being kept up and how the  farmer suffered pecuniary loss from  the absence of good roads. Half a  ton of potatoes was all that could be  hauled in a day over 15 miles into  Westminster tHong the present roads.  Paved, the same team, whose cost ran  to $7. per day, would haul four times  that amount.  Referring to the good roads matter  introduced by several speakers, Mayor  Baxter stated that from the time  steam roads canie . into the country  the ordinary (roads had been sadly  neglected. First class highways were  absolutely essential in the building of  a community. "If we provide more  loads so that the farmers and their  families can get about and ���������' enjoy  some social pleasure with their neighbors, we will not have the boys and  girls crowding into the city, but will  be able to keep them on the land.'  "There is no asset greater than  good roads," went on the visitor, "but  we want hard', safe roads, good twelve  months a year, roads over which the  farmers can carry their produce to the  market.  "The provincial government is guaranteeing the bonds of railroads, why  can't it do the same with the bonds  of municipalities for road building and  construct the trunk roads themselves?" queried the speaker. "I believe this bureau could help along in  this direction. If you want any assistance come to Vancouver and we  will appoint a delegate to go with  you to Victoria to ask for this very  necessary thing."  In the opinion of Mr. E. H. Heaps  the building of a country was purely a  business proposition and practical difficulties had to be met. In the old  country by the means of motor and  steam tractors the, president'of the  bureau stated, the roads were greatly  reducing freight charges and were  even keenly competing with canals  and railway systems of transportation  in the matter of charges.  Mr. Heaps advocated co-operation  for the success of the valley and tho  building up of New Westminster and  Vancouver. He looked upon the slope  of the -Fraser valley betweon New  Westminster and the Praser's mouth  as the ultimate residential district  for a great community.  At this juncture the speaker made  the important announcement  that he  had received definite information that  another railroad was coming into New  Westminster   audi   Vancouver.     This  line,  he  stated,   was   not   merely   a  paper one, but those who were behind  it meant business. The railroad would  operate between Mexico and Vancouver, thus opening up possibilities for  trade south and north as well as east.  To  Keep Them Also  Councillor  N.   F.  Lougheed,   Maple  Ridge, laid stress on the fact that the  prime object of the bureau was to help  the  settler.      Twenty  years  ago  the  outlying    districts    were    producing  about the same quantity as they are  today.    Something was  wrong.    The  valley needed development.   The only  way was through roads.  They had to face the problem not  so much of. getting people but of keeping them when they had them.    He  would urge that all the public bodies  should impress on the Dominion and  provincial governments the necessity  of opening up roads, thus creating an  asset to the districts and to the cities  they supported.    He thought the bu-  I reau was right hi going to quarters in  I the home of the Vancouver Progress  Club.'  They must "fish the best shoal  for settlers."  Ex-Mayor Lee, in replying to the  toast of the "Fraser River," said that  in so far as New Westminster is concerned the Fraser river was at its  flood tide today. He believed that one  day it would be one of the world's  greatest fresh water ports. No salt  water port on the coast would outshine the Fraser if it is given half a  chance. He urged that Vancouver,  New Westminster and the Fraser valley work together because what helped  one helped all and what hurt one  hurt all. -  In proposing the "Press" Mr. Otway  Wilkie, secretary of the Fraser Valley Bureau, stated that the press was  the greatest factor in the country���������  the greatest power for good or evil.  He briefly outlined the history of the  organization of the bureau and commented on the spirit existing among  the various communities of this locality.  Mr. J. W. Cunningham of the Columbian, who responded, stated it was  for the press to give the bureau its  blessing. He believed that it would  ultimately prove a great power for  good in the locality.  Mr. R. W. Hulbert of the Coquitlam  Star said that he was rather skeptical  of the success of the Board when it  first started but that he was now  convinced that it would prove a success. It was the purpose of the press  to try and ���������spread the principles of the  organization.  Mr. J. A. Bates of the Fraser Valley  Record, Mission City, stated that in |  future Vancouver and' New Westminster would look to the Fraser Valley  for the produce which they are getting  elsewhere. He was glad to see a better spirit between Vancouver and  New Westminster, as he thought it  was in the interests of all concerned  that harmony should prevail.  This concluded, the toast list, and  Mr; Hulbert requested three cheers  for the Progressive Association and  the city council, which were heartily  given. The function was brought to a  close with the singing of the national  anthem.  25 per cent.

This gives an increase of $21,625,981.,  which is a remarkable evidence of the  wave   of   prosperity   which   is   now  sweeping Canada. , At the present rate  of progress the revenue from customs  alone for the-fiscal year ending March  31  next,-- will be in tiie neighborhood  of $115,000,000.00, or, in round figures  an increase over the last fiscal year  of $25,000,000.00.  For the month of December the customs receipts for the'Dominion were  $8,770,200.00, an increase over the corresponding month last year of $1,-  436,906.  The renewed vigor and activity of  the customs service during the time  Hon. J. D. Reid has been, head of the  Department is graphically shown in  tho above statement of gures, but it  is not in the collections alone that  striking progress has been made. Upwards of thirty-live new outports and  customs ofllccs have been' opened in  all parts of the Dominion,.more particularly in' the Western* Provinces,  where the ever-increasing tide of settlement has rendered thes& facilities  imperative. The Minister "'of Customs  has fully recognized the necessity of  meeting the wishes of' the public by  affording customs facilities in places  neglected for many years ,by the former administration.  Trade  Figures Soaring  While the total trade figures for the  nine mo.nAba of ,tK "preSent fiscal year  Which ei^'s today> are not available,  **ie figures for the eight months ending November 30th last show a surprisingly  large increase  in Canadian  trade.    For the eight months ending  November 30th the total trade of Canada was $713,614,956.00.   For the eight  months  of  the preceding  fiscal year  the  total  Canadian  trade  was   $570,-'  614,432.00, <. ;v     ....   ;  ���������Sumas City,' Washington, says the  Public of Chicago is separated from  Huntingdon, British Columbi by the  invisible international boundary . line  that runs in the middle of the street.

Dyke Meeting at  -  Upper Sumas Hall  The meeting at Upprir Sumas Hall,  Wednesday, to decide finally the proposition of A. M. Rice & Co., for tho  reclamation of the laj.uls included  in  the    Sumas   Lake    bed    and    Sumas  Prairie, was well' attended by the land  owners, and a very representative interest was taken in  the affair.    The  tdtal number of votes available at the  polling was 141.    Of this number 101  voted for the sohemf and 37 against  it. The total acreage, too,  figured in  the voting and  the. number of acres  represented was 13,279.    Of this, 11,-  098 1-2 acres represented declared for  the scheme, and 2,180 declared against  it.   The required number of votes and  acreage to carry was 60 per cent. The,  percentage of votes received  was 74,  and of the acreage, 83 per cent.   Thus  it will be seen that the percentage in  favor was well in the majority.  The next move of the commission  will be the preparation of the assessment roll and the holding of a new  co,urt of revision,  which  will  be advertised in due time.    The    commission are asking the contracting engineers to make the assessment roll in  order that it may be done by-impartial and disinterested parties.  ' Now   that   the  preliminaries     connected  with   the  scheme    are   'completed, it is the intention of the coan-  pany   contracting   for   the   work   to  commence at once and push it to a  completion  as rapidly    as    men and  money can do it.    Next year will see  the last of the high'waters on Sumas  Prairie, and the land heretofore considered    practically    for    agricultural  purposes will be brought into bearing.  It represents a district more than half *  as large as the Chilliwack Valey, and  its adaptability for dairying and market gardening cannot be excelled anywhere in America.���������Progress.  WANT   ROAD   FOREMAN  Hatzic   Ratepayers'   Association   Urge  the Appointment of One for Mission   Municipality.  At the semi-annual meeting of the'  Hatzic ratepayers of Ward 1, held on:  Friday,  December 27, the    following '���������  resolution was passed: >  Resolved, that in the opinion of this1  meeting, the Council of Mission Muni-:  cipality for the year 1913 should appoint  a  competent  road   foreman  to  supervise the  building and' repairing _  of road, etc., and whereas these duties;  alone would not warrant steady employment all the year round, we maintain that the revenue derived from the  following municipal    capacities, viz.:  "Collecting of road tax, pound'keeper,  dog tax collector, policeman and transfer-trade license collector,"  in    addition to his salaried duties, would be  sufficient remuneration to warrant his  appointment.  FOR   SPRING   CHICKENS  Prepare in Advance by Making Coops  and  Other Apparatus  Some of our island homes are rath-!  er striking to the eastern people, one  gentleman ��������� in Toronto surmizing  whether Ganges was the headquarters  to the Hindus in B. C. Then Vesuvius  rather suggests the possibilities of  trouble but Ganges has no Hindus, and  .there is no danger of any worse eruption near the LeauVful bay called Vesuvius man a real estate boon;, and  the signs are not wanting of that possibility.  It is none too soon to begin making plans for the chickens one expects to raise next year, and to get  the yard and coops ready. If an incubator will be required to take care  of the chickens, and if they are set  under hens one will need a lot of small  coops to keep them and their little  ones in.  Home-made brooders will often answer the purpose. Anyone who can '  saw boards and drive nails can make  one In a short time at very little expense. The main thing to look out for  in making a brooder, as. well as the  small coops for the separate hens with  their broods,, is to see that it can be  easily cleaned. If the brooder or coops  are made separate from the floors it  will be an easy matter to clean, for the  houses can be turned over, the floors  scrubbed and. left to dry for a whole  day in the hot sun.  The floors for the coops will ensure  the safety of the little chickens from  ra'.s or other animals that might dig  under the coops and destroy them as  well as to keep them dry during rainy  won ther. it is not a very: pleasant  thing to get out of bed some stormy  night, go and gather up a hundred or  more half-drowned chickens and take  them into a house where a fire must  be built to warm and revive them.  Later in the season when the chickens get larger it will not be necessary  to keep the coops on these platforms  but they can simply be moved about  as the ground underneath them becomes unclean.  It one intends raising the little chickens in the same yard as the old oneB  are kept in a feeding pen is indis-  pensible. The old chickens will not  only gobble up the food but will also  trample the little ones under their  big leet and often kill them. The  feeding pen should be made ,-with slat  sides and top and the slats will have  to be placed quite close together for  the little chickens.    The slats,can be  so arranged that every one can be removed anj  time desired.   With an arrangement of this sort-it is no trouble  to feed the little chickens for.they can  insidle the pen as long as they want  to and are safe from the interference  by the larger ones.  Do not by any means-neglect to provide proper drinking troughs orf fountains. The little chickens get so thirsty over night that they will often  leave their morning feed to get a  drink. The water vessels should be  located in the shade in order to keep  the .water as cool as possible in summer.  There is plenty of hard work connected with chick raising. Even if  all the coops are made now and everything is gotten ready several  months before the chickens are hatched there will be plenty of daily work  to d"o. And one will be glad that this  much was attended to during the slack  days in winter.  SUIMAS LODGE, No. 1084, L.O.O.M.  Meets the first and third iFriday  in ������eaich month.

Councillor Bell gave notice to introduce a by-law to amend the "Reeve  and Councillors' Indemnity By-law."  It is proposed to increase the indemnity from' $100 to ! $200. per annum.  As the Councillors have to do the  work of'a *rbad supervisor in each  Ward, it was- felt that the indemnity  should be increased.  The matter of amending the by-law  regulating the salaries of the cemetery  commissioners was laid over.  The Reeve enjoined the Councillors  to use their best endeavors for the  Municipality,' especially in the matter  of road building and to consider carefully whether contract work was not  advisable in the matter of opening  new roads.
