Alanson and  Geo. Kerr, whose terms had expired.  The two gentlemen named were prevailed upon to stand for reelection  with the result that they were both  returned.  There was a very small attendance of those interested in school  matters.  A very successful picnic was given  at the municipal hall on July 1st.  Although Mr. S. Cawley,- M. P. P., and  Mr.'Chas. Hill Tout were not present  to give the addresses expected, y,ery  appropriate ones - were delivered by  Rev. Mr. Reid and Mr. H. R. Phillips. A lacrosse game was played  between Matsqui and Mt. Lhman, resulting in a score of 6 to 3 in favor  of Mount Lehman. Sports of all  kinds occupied the afternoon. Mr.  Phillips had erected an'old country  boat swing and it certainly was enjoyed by all. The day wound up v/ith  a dance which was pleasing to all.  A number of the Mount Lehman  people went over to Sumas to celebrate the Fourth of July. A lacrosse  match was ' played between1 Mount  .Lehman and Matsqui.  Mrs. Dan Nicholson has returned  from her visit to.Stave Falls.

Some very excellent singing was  enjeyed by the'institute, Mrs. Van  Knoblick, acompanied. by her sister  Miss McLagan  on the  piano.  The business part of the meeting  then adjourned after the singing of  the National Anthem, with music by  Miss G. Alexander.  A vote was also taken to get Miss  Alta Crist to report on the meetings  of the Women's Institutes  All were then inviteed out on the  lawn where dainty, refreshments were  served in the . shade of some fine  maple and' cherry trees; the latter  loaded- with delicious fruit. It was  quite late before the members left  for their homes and it seemed so  very pleasant to stay in such a beautiful place, but finally all dispersed  to their homes thankful for so gay  and profitable a time.

The noise first was heard in Manitoba  during the recent election there. But  of course it is denied in this province by many who should be on the  inside track and in the know.  There does not appear to be any  good reason why the McBride govern  ment should go to the country at  the present time with two more sessions in which to do business, and a  majority ail their own. There does  not appear to be anything to gain by.  putting the country to the expense of  another election,'unless it be to give  the province a more representative  government���������a house composed of  representatives fresh from the wish  of the people  There is one of two things that is  likely to happen should there be an  ' election in the' province within the  next two months���������either a house re  turned to Victoria composed entirely  of Conservatives or the leader of the  present government to find that the  country is' not so enthused over the  present Conservative principles now  as they were two years ago  Two provinces within the past two  months have returned Conservative  governments to power but there has  been in both provinces an increase in  in the Liberal representation in the  hew parliaments. Would this be the  case in B. C. No one can foretell  the result of any election. If Liber  alism increases the further west one  ' goes it might be just possible that  we might have a change of administration altogther. (This -will no  doubt tickle some of our Liberal readers especially if they keep enlarging  on the possibilities which it suggests  to them I  The present activity'in the Conservative ranhs would indicate there  is something under consideration at  the present time as to whether ii-U  mr (.ection or iri  time  -.vill tell.  NEW WESTMINSTER MARKET  There is every indication that the  ' district around Mission City will not  be considered backward any longer  when speaking of us in regard to the fruit .industry, should  the present prosperity among the  fruit growers continue���������shipping out  the raspberry in car load lots and re-  ceving pay within a few days after  the delivery of the goods. It looks  very much like business indeed  .No doubt the alliance is merely an  experiment, in the experimental stage  and it is up to the farmers to make it  - permanent by shipping the very best  fruit it is possible to ship, making a  name for the district as tiie one from  which the consumer can rely on getting the very best of fruit he wants  and at a reasonable figure The pre  sent advance augurs well for change  in the fruit industry in this district  The fruit can be grown around Hat-  zic and Mission���������the "delicious and  first class article, and there is no  reason why the present demand will  not only keep up, but increase to  such an extent as to make this district a most desirable one to live in  for fruit growers.  As this is the season when the majority of the farmers throughout the  Fraser Valley are busy making hay  the attendance of the Valley residents at the New Westminster week-  lv market Friday morning was not up  to its usual standard. Attendance  of residents was also not as large as  on former days as many of them have  gone to. their, summer homes at the  various pleasure resorts. .  Those who were present however,  were eager to' buy and around all of  the .stalls a : brisk appearance , was  noticed despite the fact tho attendance was not so. large.  Peaches, grown at Sardis, and at  Burnaby were the new feature and  sold at 75 cents the box for the shipment from Sardis, at 15 cents the  dozen for the supply from Burnaby.  Another new feature was fresh string  beans which were good sellers at  12V& cents the pound . . .  Eggs took a sudden rise n price  and sold for 40 cents the dozen retail and 30 to 35 cents the dozen  wholesale. A few of the vendors,  held to the old price of 35 cents the  ���������dozen retail. The usual large supply  of butter was on hand and sold at  ���������last week's quotations, viz., 30 to  35 cents per pound retail and 25  cents the pound wholesale. 'Devonshire cream was again a steady seller  at 45 cents the quart and 2 5 cents  per pint. Cottage cheese was on  sale ae 10 cents the pound. Pure  cream cheese sold at the regular  price of 50 cents the pound.  With the fishing season coming on  and the Chinamen going away to  do work in th canneries the large  number,that are usually."present to^  buy the ducks and chickens were  absent. There was an extra small  <-'i;i.)i.l\- of due1-s ion .Land and tie  uricVwas veT lev., the majori v  going at 13 ' to, 15 cents the pound.  Broiling chickens! remaine'd at.', the  usual price of" 18 to 20 cents- the  pound. In this line there was not  the same brisk trading as is generally noticed.  Potatoes at the,outside price were  $1.50 per sack, while a small contingent went at $1.25 the sack. By  the. ton they 'were $25. One man  from Clayton held his potatoes at  $2.25 the sack. Tomatoes were also  somewhat cheaper and could be had  at 12 1-2 to 15 cents the pound.  Cucumbers, extra large, were 10  cents each, while some small variety- were sold at 5 cents apiece.  Cabbages, lettuce, radishes and onions all remained at the usual price.  Peas could be had for 4 .to 8 cents  the pound.  Around the fruit stalls raspberries  and currants were' the best sellers  going at 8 to 10 cents the pound for  red currants and 10 to 12y2 cents  the .pound for black \ currants.  Raspberries were $1.25 to $2.00 the  crate or by the box they were 5 to  15 cents according to quality. Rhubarb was 2 yz cents per pound. Black  berries, both, tame and wild,, could  be had for 12 1-2 cents per pound.  The supply of gooseberries and-Cher  ries was limited.  In, the fish department the best  (seller was fresh herring which went  at the usual qrice of 3 pounds for  -25 cents. .' Fresh salmon, also met a>  ready demand ;at "12% cents, the  pound for Red Spring and 50 cents  each for white and sockeye. Hali-'  but was at the regular price of 10  senls the pound.  . With the "flower vendors the best  sellers - were sweet peas by the  bunch, and potted plants. The season ,for flowering plants is about  over. The sweet peas went at 10  to 25 cents the bunch while the potted plants could be had for as small  a price as 5 cents- each.  The warm weather again affected  the supply of meat and' the quantity  was not very large. The best supply was that of veal which could be  had for the price of 25 to 28 cents  the pound.  Squabs sold for 25 cents each,  while grey and black rabbits ranged  from 25 cents to $1.25 the pair.
