DesMAZES  Phone  .10  AIlllOTSKOItl) AND WHATCOM  HO  Al)  Fanners'1912  Yesterday     Abbotsford    was    the  scene of a gathering of    Orangemen  from  the north and    south    Fraser,  fully  five' hundred  coming  from  all  parts of the Valley to enjoy and take  part in the annual    anniversary.    A  feature of the day was the     parade  formed at  the Orange Hall  and the  procession in full regalia    and    with  bands playing and 'flags, flying, march  ed to the" school grounds.    After hav-  __, ing partaken of' the excellent things'  "4provided by the good    ladies of Abbotsford True Blue,    several' stirring  addresses were given, after which the  sports' of the afternoon     were thoroughly enjoyed.    In the evening the  dance was a grand success and verv  largely attended.  .In the addresses at the- annual  gathering of the members of the  L.O.L. one "always expects to he favored with oratory of a kind that  stirs men and women to carrv on the  good work for the carrying "out of  ideals which have made the British  Empire the best place in the world to  live in. Abbotsford was favored  yester.day with several very excellent  speeches, highly appreciated and up-  plauded.  Br'o. Sam Carson, of Chilliwack,  acted as' chairman and in a most interesting speech, stated that he was  glad to be in Abbotsford to help-celebrate this anniversary of Orange-  ism. It was eight years ago that  the last celebration was held in Abbotsford. He compared the differences of situation in J.he British Empire between the years of 1915, and  1923. In 1915 many members of  the association were in Flander's  field fighting for coutnry and freedom. Many had laid down their  lives since that date to uphold the  rights of freedom and all that the  British Empire stood for  In his concluding remarks' he paid  the ladies of Abbotsford a very high  compliment for the excellent dinner  provided.    "..<������������������������������������.���������'  Mr. F. J. R. Whitchelo, on behalf  of Abbotsford town, was called upon.  He said in part that when he assumed  the   office of president of       the  Abbotsford  Board of Trade    he did  not expect to be called upon to perform so many pleasant duties for t-ie  citizens  of Abbotsford    and  district.  Abbotsford   had   no   mayor  or   local  citizens of that kind, but in all sincerity it gave him real genuine pleasure  to  welcome Abbotsford'a    visitors.    Knowing the work and    what  the Orange order stands for he had  no hesitation in saying that it    was  a fine body of men and women. Conditions' in  the world  had  been  such  that he was convinced that it required the principles or the Orange order  to save it.    The groat need in Canada  ��������� today  is citizens    who will    assimilate with our people,    and    he    onlv  hoped   that   future     citizens     would  have the high ideals      of the Orange  order.    Orangeism    stood  up in      a  prominent way in life. He could onlv  speak as an outsider,    but as he saw  the work accomplished   ' he  believed  that the members of the Orange order were really the backbone of the  country. I  He hoped that when the next cel  ebration was held      that the district  would be more settled and  the community larger. He had much pleasure  in handing the members    the "keys  of the city," and    he    extended  ..the  privilege of taking anything that was  not nailed  down and make' themselves perfectly happy, during the stay.  Bro. W. G.    Gamble,    of "' Mission  City,  who -has held -��������� many high  offices in the gift of. the Orange Lodge  was the next speaker. He said in part  that when he saw the splendid gathering in Abbotsford today it reminded him of    many    such    gatherings  throughout the  dominion of Canada  ���������not only in Canada but throughout  the British Empire, particularly ��������� in  Ulster. In that great province of Ulster they never missed    an    Orange  celebration on the 12th of July,    except during the  great  war  when  so  many Orangemen  went to the front  that there was not sufficient left    to  organize "a  celebration.   Our   Roma.-i.  Catholic friends in Quebec were not  fering in that way.    When conscription  was' brought into .effect    there  were probably not enough in  towns  in Quebec to form a celebration, as so  many were hiding in the hills.      He  believed  that on  one occasion  these  people had defied .the Orangemen to  march in one of the towns,  but the  Orangemen turned out in full force,  and they saw nothing of their friends  as they were in hiding.  'We are assembled here today, said  the speaker,    to    commemorate    the  memory of a great prince���������William,  Prince of Orange, who won that far  reaching battle of the Boyne. Conditions  have changed since the  fighting of that battle. Now we'enjoy liberty. Orangeism refrains from political   partisanship,     but  the    association are to uphold the political integrity of the    British    Empire.      Our  national character of the future depends largely on the character of our  immigration. Thirty per cent, of the  population  of Canada say that '.they  are not British, that they are French  You can  readily    see    that a large  number of foreign    born in Canada  would give a tendency to drift away  from the motherland.   We want men  from   Great  Britain  and   Ulster.  In the federal house a man by tire  name of Powers had said that Great  Britain was not the motherland, but  Franco was. For his part he would  rather have oatmeal porridge than  peasoup.  There  was no doubt that Romanism is trying to    separate    us    from  the British  Empire, and  working on  the same principles as in Ireland. We  have an   Ulster in  Canada from the  Atlantic to the    Pacific���������the   Ulster  of the Orange association.    If we admit   into   this   country   British-born  our future is assured.    Our immigration policy should not admit    Orientals,  Japanese  multiply  three  times  as  fast as' whites, and in    this way  our   province  is     rapidly     becoming  Oriental. We must see that we send  men to the federal house    who will  not bring to this    country those ws  cannot assimilate.  It is said that Orangemen were the  watchdogs  of  the  empire;   also   the  (Continued on  Last Page)  ...    .The   12th ' ol" July     celebration  Abbotsford was a very successful affair.      The day was fine    and    hot,  and members of the    Orange,    True  Blue  and   Lady   . Orange and     their  families from  the North  Fraser and  Chilliwack counties gathered to commemorate the battle of    the    Boyne.  Among the various lodges which were  represented   were:   Vancouver,   Chilliwack, SfUdorgro'ye,     Mt.     Lehmar.  Mission, Rosedale,'Haney, Hammond,  Cocpiitlani and our own home Lodge/  Headed by County Master S.

After Mr. Carson had .thanked aVl  for their attendanie at the anniver-'  sary, the crowd dispersed, and partook of dinner, which was' provided  for them by the ladies of . the Loyal  True Blue Lodge-, of Abbotsford.

The funds gathered by the sale of  tags in aid of the Orphanage will go  direct to the Orange and True Blue  Orphanage in New Westminster.  The committees in charge wish to  take this means of thanking all who  so kindly assisted in making the  celebration a success.  Sumas Council find it easier to  enact by-laws than to enforce them,  'although the will of the people is  with. them.  Last year at the urgent request of  the ratepayers a stringent pound bylaw" was esablished.    Generally   this  law is obeyed, but those who ignore  it because no one    can- be    found to  carry it out.       Councillors .are empowered  to appoint pound    keepers',  but fail  to obtain results.    A farmer on the. Yale road had cause to complain to the council on Saturday that  a flock of goats were    attacking nisi  crop doing considerable damage.'The  owner of the goats is away, the - animals defy the law, and any attempts  to "arrest them are re-butted.      This  only solution apparent to the council  is to appoint the complainant-pound-  keeper.  ' The noxious' -weeds by-law is obeyed most diligently by the three railroad companies in the district, but  nos response is given .by the Indians.  The Kilgard Reservation is surrounded; by municipal area where thistles  and other objectionable plants are  cut, but the Indian, having no use  for noxious weeds, does not see why  he should cut them, and complaints  to the Indian department receive no  acknowledgment, states the  clerk.  , The council appointed W. Kennedy  G... Hallet and A.

Mr. W. Blatchford in writing home  states that he likes Carson City  where he is now stationed, in. the  custom office.  Messrs. Yarwood and Johnson  have dissolved partnership as custom  brokers, Mr.. J. Johnson now having  full charge of that business. Mr.  Yarwood still retains his' business as.  .,notary public.

He has' been on Orangeman for about  8 0 years,    he    says.      He joined the  Boys'-Lodge in Ireland at the age of  1 4. He rose to be Grand Master, and  held that position for " many,   years  before  coming  to  Canada. . incidentally he is also a good Conservative.  He loves' to tell of his early fights in  Ireland in order    to    maintain    the  principles  of  Orangeism  as  he  saw  them.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  CAKN-MI)  ?���������'  A?  ii..;'::  NOW   HTANDARDIZEO  FRIDAY,   JULY   1;  Break the farmer and the fruit  grower"-, he don't deserve any sympathy in his' occupation! Break his  bank account! Break him in spirit,  and in body, so that he will make a  servile servant or slave! Any man  who follows the occupation of Milling tliC'Soil should be made to work-  good and hard for his' mney, and he  should never have too much money  at   that!  One would almost suppost that  the above' are the mottos of some of  those who handle the farm produce  of this province: the mottos of some  of those who deal with the farmer.  We see on all sides men on the soil  who work hard, plan ahead, and do  everything it is possible to produce  '���������-produce that which is absolutely  necessary to our very existence���������food.  We see some young men go on lo  the land ���������land covered with frees,  or possibly stumps. To make this  land productive he plans and works  ���������mostly' works, and in time he hns  cleared a small tract of - land that  prduces. In the meantime he has to  live." He has probably to keep his  family and educate them for their  life work (they seldom in this province follow father's footsteps' on the  farm). Tn disposing of his produce  one would almost suppose that those  who are responsible.for the manipulation of the markets' had for their object the unsympathetic spirit expressed in the first paragraph of this article���������Break the farmer and t' e  fruit grower, etc.  'We have a beautiful district  throughout the Fraser Valley., The  land is rich and fertile���������will produce almost anything that the climate is suited to���������and produce it ������o  that with proper transportation when  wi  it is placed on the market it  compare favorably with that from  other districts.. But what assistance  does the man on the soil get in order that he may make his' business  a successful one?  This year it is high priced sugar,  which is a detriment to the marketing conditions. It.works hoth ways.  It hits' the consumer and the producer���������the producer the . harder, because he is depending upon the soil  for his living. But then if it Avere  not high priced sugar it might be  something else. A few years ago  when there was a very large crop of  potatoes, foreign potatoes' ��������� were  brought in to break the market, presumably, and to make it worse, or  appear worse, these potatoes passed  in train "load lots right through  the very districts' where there was  the large crop. We call that rubbing  it in.  We might write volumes along the  above line, but we will not.   We ju,--.*,  want to call attention to the present  day conditions and to    the fact that  something should be_ done to    assist  the  food  producer:    A  trip  through  the Fraser Valley this'    year    shows  that there is. still an abundance    of  land that is not tilled, that same trip  also suggests the question, What inducements   are     being       offered   to  young men to go on the land      True  we have a good department of agriculture in this province, with a man  at the head who has' undoubtedly the  interests of the farmer at heart, but  at the same time not enough is being  done  to attract      men on the farm.  The scheme of dyking the Sumas is  a most laudable one,    and will    pay  for its expenditure we all trust, but  -why not carry out a large scheme of  all-round assistance for  the man already on the soil?      True    much    is  being done in other ways. He is getting better roads.       He    is  many    helpful    suggestions    in    lite  ���������work.    He is getting some assistance  in his marketing on the prairies. This  last winter excellent advice was given  along   co-operative   lines.     But  part  co-operation  appears  to   be  bringing  about a worse state of affairs  than  no co-operation at all, and it would  appear that very drastic    steps must  be   taken   to  establish  a system     so  that men will feel that to till the soil  is an attractive    one, as well    as    a  good profitable business to follow.  law ami order. One man takes a,  ���������different view of how the law should  be en forced ���������than does another. There  are always two sides to a case, and  two methods of securing ' the same  object, and that object should always be the most British route���������not  Russian  methods.  An observance of the methods n-  dopted in carrying out the laws of  this province in some of our small  towns of the Eraser Valley would  lead one to believe that not , every  man who applies for. service on the  police force is capable and worthy  of filling the position. One mail will  come into the town and create rod-  peel for laws that are to be.enforced,  while another will carry out his duties, seemingly,, and in so doing make  the people antagonistic hoth to him  and law and order. If the laws of  any part of the British Phnpire a?u  not carried out judiciously it brings  about a state of affairs that no Britisher wants to. see. As we take it  our laws' are made so that in Iho  enforcing of them there is maintained the true British . respoot for la viand order. To the' south of us we  find those who do not respect the  law. We do not want, that' state- of  affairs in B. C, or in.the Eraser Valley.  ouor  CONDITIONS  THKOUG'HOUT.  DOMINION  General  With     gen era.

AH canned goods put up in  the larger factories must con form to  legal ' standards, and , these 'an.  shown on the label of the can. The  fcysferu of standardizing canned  fruits and vegfables is 'explained in  the May-June number of tho Agricultural Gazette by C. S. McGilli-  vray, Uie Chief Canning Inspector of  (.he Department of Agriculture 'at  Ottawa.  The four legal standards of quality for fruits' and ,. veketables are-  "Fancy Quality," "Choice Quality,"  "Standard Quality," and "Second  Quality."  ln addition to general standards  for vegetables, specific grades have  been established for canned peas.1  Those, are as follows: Si/.os No. I.  Size No."2, Size No. 3 and Size No.  ���������!. The size is determined by 'tin-  opening in the sieve through which  the green peas will pass.  Canned fruits are graded for .quality and syrup. In "grading for syrup,  the terms "Heavy Syrup," Light  Syrup," and "Without Syrup" arc  employed. If the packer so desires,  he may substitute the words "Pack-  in Syrup ....per <cent. Sugar," (stating the percentage'of sugar in the.  syrup)..  Tho terms denoting quality and  grade must appear upon the main  portion of the label in plain type ol  a size not loss than 8-8 of ah inch in  height. Thus, in tho case of peas,  lhe label iniist indicate the qualify  and size Of the peas contained in the  can, thus���������"Fancy Qualify, Size Nc>.  1." In the case of fruit, it must indicate the qualify of the art.iclc^ as  well as the consistency of the syrup  so ��������� far as sugar is concerned, thus  "Fancy Quality���������Heavy Syrup."  The declaration of net weight on  certain sizes of containers is not required, as these sizes have been standardized. These sizes are known as  ���������Size' l's, 1 1-2's, 2's, 2 1-2's, 3's and.  1.0's. The minimum net weight of  both liquid and solids as packed is  defined for each of these sizes.

It has always been  thus and the particular council is in  this respect no different than many  other bodies'that enact laws or bylaws. Not enough care is made in enacting laws or by-laws, even if the  makers are aware of the fact that  the people are with them in will  and spirit, as they usually are.  On the books of    almost    all    the  councils of the  Fraser    Valley    and  shall we say some of the larger lawmakers there are  enacted laws  that  are never enforced. It has often been  remarked that the laws    of this province should be cancelled and started over again,    but then we suppose  that the same thing would happen a-  gain.    It takes a wise man to enforce  the law in almost any instance. This  is particularly seen  throughout    the  province where men are sent to have  out the Province and have stimulat  ed growth wonderfully. Conditions  generally show satisfactory .prospects for a.good.'all round crop. Hay  a big crop and cutting well unde/  way. Clover excellent. Fall wheat  is filling well and beginning to ripen.  Indications are for a good crop. Har-  ley good crop. Peas good. Corn a  little backward but progressing rapidly. Weather conditions' ideal fov  root crop. Spring wheat and rye acreage small; both crops satisfactory.  Fruit prospects fair with exception  of raspberries, which arc below a-  verage. Pasturage abundant.  Maritime Provinces  Season has been dry and backward  but recent warm rains have greatly  improved the situation. All crops  are now progressing favourably.  Present indications point to a large  apple   crop.  Province of lls-itish Columbia  All crops are doing'well, under favourable weather conditions. A good  crop of hay is being cut.

The subject to be taken up by Judge  Howay, who is a member of the Historic Sites Board of Canada, is the  restoration of the old Hudsons's Bay  fort on the Fraser River in the municipality, in which project the local  board is greatly interested. For a  number of years, the historic old  building has been sadly neglected,  having been lately used as a stable,  and at present it is in a state of disrepair. However, with little work  it can bo repaired, thus saving for  future generations' one of the earliest landmarks of  the province.  At the forthcoming meeting of the  board, it is likely that efforts will  be made to formulate some scheme  for purchasing the site on which" the  Fort is located, and when once title  to the property is obtained, it is understood that the Historic Sites  Board will undertake to repair the  building. The property itself' commands a magnificient view of the  surrounding district and the Fraser  River and would make an ideal site  for a permanent park. Other residents of the municipality are also  taking the matter up and'a committee has been appointed to communicate with the heirs of the Mavis' Estate, of which the land is a part, and  endeavor to find out for what price  it can be obtained. This committee  is working to secure this required  information, and it is likely that a  further public meeting will also be  called in the near future. Reports  are being circulated .that an offer  to purchase the property has already  been rocelved from private sources.  ���������Columbian.

At Saturday's meeting of Maple  Ridge Municipal Council, Messrs.  MacDonald, Laird and Genge were  instructed to take action against the  Western Power Co. of Canada or B.  C. Electric, to enforce execution of an"  agreement ratified by bylaw dated  December 22, 1910. The agreement  is said to -be in connection with , the  lighting of the municipality, regarding which there have been protracted  negotiations and much controversy.  The council by a vote of three to  >one decided to ask the government  not to establish a liquor store in  Maple Ridge. Coun. Martyn voted  against the resolution, affirming that  it was not a council hut a provincial  government matter. Coun-. . Watt  declined to vote. Councillor. Brooks,  Blois and Hilder voted for the resolution. The decision followed a  speech from Mr. Hal Menzie on behalf of the objectors to the store establishment. Petition and counter-  petition have been circulated for  some time.in the" municipality, and  it was alleged unofficially that there  were 40.0 signatures attached to the  petition for the "store and 600  against. -  A cheque for $4178.51 was received as the municipality's' share of the  liquor profits!

Qet Shilph, at  {Jyour druggists, 30c, 60c and'$1.20.e  One of our readers living at the  coast, who is interested in co-operative marketing and in . this district  bOiids us the following article taken  from the Kiwanis Magazine, which  asks a question we would-all like to  see solved:  The trials and tribulations of the  period of inflation have' puL.nien to  thinking who are developing more  .constructive work than ever before,  so it comas to us at last' that the  value ill* our agricultural products  stands out far ahead of anything  else; that forty per cent, of our population lives on farms; that upon  their prosperity depends largely tho  welfare of our city dwellers and.we  ask. ourselves the question, what  have we done in the past to ass.sf  our   Iariuing   communities?  Isn't it a fact that we' must plctd  guilty to having done very huie and  admit-that the cities have been satisfied to permit the farmer to help support them?  It is true that our United States  Government has estaul.thud experimental farms and that the Department of Agriculture cooperates in  many ways. We have in Texas our  ytat.e Extension Divisions which endeavors to bring about the use of  better seed and better, live-stock, deal  in plant diseases and control measures and assist generally in an educational way, just as' our railroads  have agricultural agents and demonstration trains and our Chambers  of Commerce try to train the younger generation pn the farms with Boy  and Girl Clubs, Home Economics  Clubs and other efforts.  All this is very helpful and of  material assistance in helping the  farmer to start off properly, but  what are we doing to keep the boy  on the farm, to make an hour's farm  labor worth as much as one hour's  city labor, and, to make the returns  from farming operations lucrative  enough.to start a movement back' to  the soil? Why is it .that the condition of our farmer today is certainly far from prosperous?  . We have enjoyed a comparatively  fair crop and one would think that  with the old popular cry of one dollar wheat and twenty-five cent cotton realized our farmers should be  prosperous, but it is not so. Statistics show that, taking the value of  farm products compared to manufactured products as' one. per hundred  cer cent before the war, this value  declined during the war to sixty-two  per cent and today, notwithstanding  the comparatively higher prices of  farm products, it is only sixty-seven'  per cent. Therefore, the farmer has  to spend a bale and a half of cotton  today to buy the same thing that he  could buy for a bale of cotton before  the war.  What is necessary    to    make    the  buying power of farm products    one  hundred per cent  of    manufactured  I products and thereby  'give    him an  'even break?    The manufacturers are  I thoroughly   organized.     They   watch  production���������they  market    systematically and by establishing high standards',   create   satisfactory     consumption.    The farmer can do    likewise,  for the answer has been    found and  this answer is  "cooperative marketing."  Have you ever traveled through  I the States of California, Washington, Oregon or the agricultural portion of Colorado? If you have, you  will agree with me that the change  In the farming communities of these  states' during the past few years is  nothing less than phenomenal. As  we travel along their splendid roads,  through miles of fields and orchards,  well kept and cultivated, as we see  their splendid homes and farms," as  we go through their communities and  see their new, modern school houses,  beautiful churches and -parks, we  wonder what has happened. We  know they did not always enjoy this  prosperity' for, just a few years ago  they were just as badly off and may  be worse than we were. This wonderful change has been brought a-  bout within a very short time by Cooperative Marketing and nothing  else,  I am in the wholesale grocery  business and it was not so very long  ago that I was told "the Peach Growers Association of California have allotted a certain amount of their e-  vaporated peaches to be sold at such  and such price; we advise you to  contract at this figure because as  soon as this allotment is sold the  price will be advanced." My answer  was: "Here is a bunch of farmers  creating the biggest kind of a" trust,  taking advantage of the fact that  farmers are exempt from the pro  vision of the Anti-trust Laws of our  country, and we should not stand  for it.'" Since then I have changed  my mind and I hope the time will  soon be at hand when our farmers  can handle their products in the  same manner as those men  do.  Only last year I was talking to a  gentleman in Fresno, California, a  merchant and banker, who told me  that when Cooperative Marketing  was first started he refused to give  credit to the farmer who signed the  agreement, but he soon found out he  was wrong. Now the town closes up  ���������on certain days so that everybody can  go and assist in getting the farmers  to sign up and, today, the one who  does hot sign is more apt to be refused credit.  This' idea was first advocated by a  young attorney in California' Today  this young genius is general counsel  for some finy Cooperative Marketing AsscciwtJOhs Llnougliout United  States, .all of them organized according, to proper business principles  and covering very many far,m-products'. They arc organized jus,t like  merchants and maufaccurers are.  They recognise the law of supply  and demand and are trying-to guard  against surplus ruining, markets.  They improve the' quality and standard of their, products and of their  packages; they help to create a de������  maud for their output by national  advertising. They are not holding  organizations', but endeavor to guard  against dumping and to establisn a  proper distributing system throughout the year on a supply and demand  basis. .   ' '  Some efforts have been made in  this direction in other section's.' We  have the Wheat Growers' Association in West Texas and the Rice  Growers' Association in South Texas;  and while the latter has made good  progress, it has neyer been successful or otherwise rice would not be  selling today at ruinous prices. ' In  tho Rio Grande section, we have'a.  Fruit Growers' Association, which  has done considerable good, but  which lack of transportation . facilities has hampered materially.  We have a Peach Growers-Association and, recently, you have noticed  that our onion , farmers in the  South'west have banded together in  an effort, to market jointly. We. all  know what tragedy onion- growing  has been, and we hope this. move-,  ment will be successful' hut, after'  all, our real money crop is cotton  and there the task is a big one but,  by no means, an impossible one.  -It is mainly lack of understanding that has kept the business "man  and the professional man from .doing'  his share in assisting Cooperative  Marketing. In 1920, the first effort  at Cooperative Marketing was made.  Today associations are existing . in  Oklahoma, Texas, Mississippi, Arizona, Georgia, South Carolina, Alabama and Tennessee.    In 1920 15 0,-;  000 farmers have been signed:up  with an approximate output of three  million bales. Do not understand me  to say, that these Associations  will handle three million bales of  cotton this year, for I do hot think  they will reach this amount, but they  have already obtained sufficient  standing to make their influence felt  in the cotton market and-to help to  stabilize it. Their method of standard grading and classification and  their ability to sell large lots' of .equal  running grades has attracted the attention of large buyers and-the Dallas office of the American Cotton  Growers Exchange the other day had  one order for fifty thousand bales  from Japan. The War Finance Corporation has assisted them with large  advances', the Texas Farm Bureau  Cotton Association alone receiving a  credit of nine million dollars for the  purpose of handling Texas, co.tton..  The time has passed when we .want  to insist on the farmer turning loose  his cotton as' soon as he .gets it so  we can collect. As much as 1- like .to  collect what we have on our books,-  1 would much rather inconvenience  myself some and let the farmer  handle his cotton through this Association, thereby obtaining a reasonable advance against his' warehouse receipt, with which he can pay  the larger part of what he owes and  then wait and have his crop, together with the crop of other farmers,  marketed gradually throughout the  season, in this way stabilizing .the  market. The more thoroughly this  is worked out and the wider the  support that is given to this movement, the less will be the hardship  on any one of us and the greater will  be the results; but it needs the combined effort of all, bankers and merchants.-  There is no question of the .economic soundness of Cooperative" .Marketing. The strongest bankers in  the United States have approved of  it. Leaders of finance like Bernard  Baruch, Theo tl. Price, Otto H.  Kahn and countless others are advocating it. It has the approval of  the Secretary of Agriculture and the  President of the United States, and  if you hear any one talk against it,  you may rest assured he either puts  a personal, selfish interest ahead of  community welfare or does ��������� not  know what he is talking about.  Let us get behind the farmer  throughout this country and assist  him in establishing sound and safe  Cooperative Marketing Associations  for his various products, and it will'  not be very long until we shall be  able to show that farming is not only  a healthful and ideal way of living,  but also equally as remunerative as  occupations in the city, and with the  many inducements held out to the  farmer today, good roads, automobiles, telephone, radio, artificial  light and other conveniences, farming^ will become as attractive as it  should be, provided it can be made  to pay and we shall establish the real  basis for their prosperity as well as  for our own.  It may look to you like a big job  but it is a real job. It may look like  a long lane, but it always takes one  to reach a goal worth while.  Here is a real constructive work.

AN EXPLANATION  Under the heading of "Food for  Thought" in bulletin No. 2, we placed the jobbers profit at 500. This is  substantially correct, but some of  the jobbers have called attention to  the amount as'- "misleading" because  their risks are great on berries, and  when the back claims and credits  given are finished with, their profits  are less than the amount stipulated.  Another point that has been disputed is the express and icing  charges, etc. We find that the average charge for express and icing is  60 cents, but, berries from Vancouver Island have1 an additional  freight to pay which places this  amount at 70 cents. We make these  explanations in fairness to the jobber and carrier.  So far as the grower is .concerned  these explanations do not improve  ,'his position, and the article was intended to draw public attention to  where the grower stands, in hope  that the industry might be stabilized  by a more sympathetic effort on the  part of those who participate in the  deal.

In  the public schools are laid the principles of Canadian., citizenship. If  Roman Catholicism were simply a  religion it would ' not be a menace.  It is a political organization , that  acknowledges a foreign head thus  destructive of our ideals. Protestantism is a system of liberty.  Roman Catholic church was  clinch with -one leader; our religion  is one of many churches' with many  leaders.    Ours a democratic system.  In Montreal one million dollars  each year goes to the support of  Roman Catholic schools. In Ontario half tho money of corporations go  'go to tho support of separate  schools. That organization must be  met by organization. Wc must say to  them,"hands off British institutions  hands' off our public schools, .hi  the great question affecting our.educational system we are united' to a  man.  Bro.

You have a goodly heritage.  1 might say that I have never said a  harsh'word* against the Roman Catholics. What do we stand for? In tnt  past history and what do you think  of the future has it been worth while  for our ancestors to, fight these battles. I love the essences of the principles of this order through and  through. On this tho 233rd anniversary of tho Battle of the Boyne we  stand for a fair deal.  Down in Quebec in a settlement,  known as' New Carlylc, where-there  is one of the oldest -Orange communities in Canada, -'I have often said  to the Roman Catholics that they  had as much right to march as-we  had to inarch as they received as  much benefits in political and religious   liberties'.  The. Orange ideals meant the  stopping of special privileges and  fair play and a square deal to each,  other. Union and truth made the  world a dittle better for having in  it men who practised these principles.  ���������. B'ro. E. Bush of Mission City dealt  with church property and'taxation.  He stated that seven per cent, of the  population of the province, held 51  per cent of the church' property. If  we gave the churches free taxation  we gave the Roman Catholic church  help. He outlined what the Orange  Lodges had done regarding church  exemption.  He made a strong plea for the new  Orange Orphanage in New Westminster, which was to cost between $25,-  000 and $30,000. The present one  was too small. Abbotsford had done  well in the drive for this new orphan-  The rest of the province would  also do well. The drive would have  to be put over this year.  ~ He asked that all Orangemen  stand by the principles which their  forefathers fought for, and in fact  the only way to do this' was to join  the  Orange  association.  inn mi in   i im ii i  irwr  Ivy r,  Not when you donl have lo sland over a hoi  fireand bake Bread.
