P. R.  til Mission Oily, known in boom  days as IndtisL'rial Mission.  There is hope lhal in lhe very  near future lhal Hie Sumas area  will not produce so many mosquitoes when the Sumas Lake  .reclamation scheme has been  thoroughly carried out, thus  preventing' the water from ly-  hig on Lhe low lands. That it  is a great breeding place now  there is no question. A south  wind tells the Mission people  such.is the case.  When the low lands of the Nicomen Island has been covered  with water there is always an  excellent crop of mosquitoes. A  ride around the Island during  mosquito time tells lhe tale.  Then the old Morton properly, most of which is owned at  present by the Yorkshire Guarantee Company is another home  for mosquitoes that appear to  have more tha none bill to present at one time.    Some people  claim that this lady is /"-.particularly vicious creature '" of   its  kind and is never satisfied until death.    There is no reason  why this area should not be reclaimed.    It is   excellent   land  and if dyked   and    the    water  water pumped out there is no  reason why this   land    should  not be worth more than $1000  per acre.    The cost   of   dyking  and pumping should    be   very  little as it is only narrow place  for the water to back up, and  with the dredging at the mouth  of the   Fraser   there   becomes  less chance of the water rising  over the banks of    the   .river.  The question    of   dyking - and  pumping on litis area should be  vigorously taken up   with ' the  owners by our board of trade or  the Mission   Municipality,   and  there is little doubt but that if  properly placed before tlie present owners in the proper light  that the work would be done, as  it would be a paying proposition and il is believed that finances would not be much    of    a  detriment for the company.  These three areas dealt with  so as to keep the land from being flooded would to a very  large extent do away with the  mosquito ��������� pest of tlie Fraser  Valley; it would at least deal  with the three largest areas  now first-class breeding places^  for mosquitoes.

Mission City  The future of Nicomen Island is again being weighed in the  balance-, and not much encouragement is being given to the,settlers there iii the wtiy of hope forth efuture.

That was something that could not be i'orsecn  and we,do not believe that the old dyking commisisoners nor the  engineer can be blamed. Certainly'il does not appeal lo the. farmers to have it thrown back on them that, their 'dyke is not  worth a whoop���������' There is or should not be any doubt about  the competency of the engineer in the minds of the provincial  government, as were he alive today he would be in charge of another important piece of work in the Fraser Valley. That ought,  to be some kind of guarantee that the work was done according  to the best engineering plans.  Were the land worthless when dyked there would not be so  ' much reason for crying shame when the game of politics is being played.t   The Dominion government has spent considerable  money to help protect the island.

That so much  money has been spent goes to show that somebody thinks the  land'is good. Another point along this line is that the old settlers have stayed with the island'through all the floods of many'  years and are still able to put on a good front. ��������� Without the dyke  and the danger of flooding the land is today estimated as worth  $150 per acre, but if dyked so as lo permit of intensive cultivation  feeling that everything was safe, the land is easily'worth not a  cent less than .$1000 per acre���������that much could be taken off it  annually, at the present prices of small fruit: this would mean  that the land would pay handsomely for all the dyking that  would be charged up against it. .The land has all the ingredients that go lo make successful agriculture no matter what  line is followed.  It is hoped that the two governments���������dominion and provincial will get together and formulate some scheme for secure protection that will place the present landowners on the  island in security so that they can make a good living besides  paying the provincial taxes.  The loss annually through flood and mosquitoes is considerable, and the farmers, if they can get security are willing to  mortgage the future if the two governments will get together  and give security against this loss. The Sumas dyking scheme  is being .undertaken by the present government in partnership  with the farmers and when completed the land will be no better  than Nicomen Island, and it is doubtful if as good for some  years to come. Matsqui prairie was of little use until dyked  and today it has a very prosperous community, willing and able  to nay their dyking tax. which will in time pav back to the government all the monies paid out in building the dyke���������and look  what a credit to the Fraser Valley the Matsqui Prairie farming  district is.  soon   have  this  market, all   to   themselves and prices will rise.

All correspondence relating to the affairs of the Ministry in Canada after that date is to be addressed to Mr. E. M.

The activities of the Ministry in Canada, including the Overseas Department which it succeeded,  date from August 1914, at which time the Dominion Government, appreciating the importance of securing  rthe service of an expert Overseas Officer, conferred with the heads of the large Canadian Transportation Companies with the result that the then President of the Canadian Pacific placed' at the service of  the Government Mr., now "Sir" Arthur Harris, who acted as Director Overseas Transport up to the 5th  [September 1918, at which date the Department was absorbed into the British Ministry of Shipping Sir  "Arthur  Harris   continuing   in  charge  as.

Tin  lobsters   of  the   New   Fngland   eoas'  ere  (he  little  brothers  of the  noble  erusiaceans native to the more north  ern   and 'colder  waters  of  Labrador  and, indeed. Canadian female lobyter-  are  selected   for    use    in  American  haicheries    to   improve   the    strain.  .The Labrador coast has the greatest  known supply, but is  too distant, to  be available for commercial purposes  at present.      The main supply   now  comes from the Gulf of St. Lawrence  particularly around the famous  Island of Anticosti, and from the  waters about Nova Scotia.  Nova Scotia is famous for romance .apples, cherries, and. last but  no least, lobsters. .The government  has every intention that this happy  stale of affairs shall continue and  maintains fifteen hatcheries in the  province. The lobsters are also  guarded out of season by strict protective laws.  The Nova Scotia 1919 lobster sea-  ,8on has been verv satisfactory. Tn������  ,.total catch is piven as 5.S2.j.0iiG  pounds, valued at $1,396,040. The  catch was somewhat <sm.il|pr than In  1918, when the quantity was G.2S5.-  ���������'820 pounds, but a much hisrher valuation Is put on the 1919 caich. The  value of the 1918 catch was $799,387.  tn 1919 there were 1,020.864 pounds'  of lobsters put up in the cannprles  and 4.831.232 pounds of live lobsters  were exported. In Nova Scotia the  price for live lobsters was 10 cents a  pound, but much higher prices were  paid in Boston .where canned Nova  Scotia lobster brought 67.8 cents a  pound. '  The 1919 season lasted only from  March 1 to May 31. instead of from  December 15 to May 31, as in previous years. .   .    ,       A  Victoria, July 14.���������The Hughes  trial here yesterday occupied public  attention to the exclusion of every  other subject. As usual in cases of  this kind where public interest is  high and the principals well known,  the usual crop of rumors were in circulation covering the whole range of  speculation which ingenuity or imagination  could suggest.  Mr. Hughes in his trusted capacity  as accountant and auditor of the  Spencer firm would probably prepare  all government returns and this fact  has set in motion sensational speculations as to the correctness of the  same.  Mr. G. G. McGeer, M. P. P., the  trustee for the Spencer interests  promptly' discounted this by stating  that if the audit now proceeding, and  which will probably'last for two or  three months, should disclose any errors in this connection the firm will  not have to be asked to, but will  promptly  make good any deficiency.  It is stated that the shortage aris-  iiiir out of the irregularities with  which Mr. Hughes is charged arc now  over $4 00,000. The assignment which  lh<< ]s.i( I .o r nuule lo lhe firm when discovery was first made and pending  a ' lull aiidll, divcsls him of all his  personal properly and real estate,  which is handnd over to Mr. McGeer  silicilor for the Speiicm- firm, for the  purpose of making rcstiiulion after  Iho ii mount of the shortage is determined.

Monteith. o*f Victoria, as  an investigator of the books of both  parties to arrive at "the amount of  the indebtedness of the party of the  first, part to the said companies."   .

TAPS' NAMED  AS ARBITRATOR  'Ottawa, July 14.���������William H.  Taft, former president of the U. S.  has been selected by the Grand  Trunk Railway Company to represent  it on tiie board ot arbitrators which  will fix tlie \alue of (he common and  preferred stocks ot the company to  be acquired by (he government. Sir  Thomas White, forme r minister of  finance, will represent the govern-  menl aud the chairman is Mr Justice  C'assels of the exchequer court.  The anoiincemeiit was made yesterday by Ilowa.rd Kelloy. president  of the Grand Trunk.  The sittings of the board are (o  be  held   hero  early  in   September.  The Grand Trunk Railway is being taken over by the Canadian government and will be part of the Canadian National system.  Under legislation passed last year-  the government agreed to assume  the bonded indebtedness of the  Grand Trunk and its outstanding  debenture stock and to pay the share  holders, most of whom reside in  Great Britain, an arbitral price for  their, stock. *  Recently the British shareholders  assented to the plan and the board  of arbitration is being named.  The deal involves the entire Grand  Trunk system, including lines in the  United  States.

This means a great deal  to the motorist when he wants to get quickly out of a tight  situation or to take full advantage of a good straightaway  on a country pike.  The instant pick-up of the Zenith Caruretor is a proven  fact.    When De Palma set tiie world record for acceleration from a standing start, inking a mile in 38.83 sceonds,  his  "Packard  905"  was   equipped]' with  a stock  Zenith  Carburetor.

THE FRASER RIVER IS HIGH  '"llllll Mil mi in   ij,]  WE UK IX CALUARV  Tho Calgary Pair, which closed  last Saturday, was about 23,0 00 short  ofthe total attendance last year. The  weather was fine and the exhibits  were of a very high class. The shrinkage in attendance is attributed to the  fact that the rural population did not.  feel justified a that time in spending  money, The weather this-week has  cheered the people of Alberta. Two  inches of rain fell between Sunday  and Tuesday, and now the sun is  shining again. Those who study the  crop prospects are convinced .that a  bumper crop of cereals is now assured. This will mean a good demand  for early apples for the harvesters.  Gooseberries continue in heavy  voiume, with a slow movement. Shippers will be well advised to cult  their shipments by at least 50 per  cent, for a week or so and thereby  steady the market. The strawberry  supply has been bare all this week.  If returns are not satisfactory it is  due to poor class or consignment.  There is a strong demand  for good  berries at top prices.  In Ij. C. L. shipment of red raspberries from Washington sold at $8  per crate wholesale. L. C. raspberries are coming in and during next  .week carlot shipments may arrive.  Sugar is more plentiful here than  was the case this time last year. It  would seem that the price was a  more serious factor in fruit preserving than tho amount available.  The supply of choice-dairy butter  is not equal to the demand. Shippers are getting from 41 to 42 cents  per lb. for it. Creamery butter is returning them 58 ,to 50 cents per lb.  Milk is reduced 'in Calgary to 146  per, quart.  Eggs are bringing $13 to $14 per  case, according to grade. Hay, loose  Prairie Upland is selling at $25 per  ton.  Vancouver quotes new potatoes at  \J6 per lb. for next week. We do not  look for much change in that price  for some time as it is considerably  below competitive quotations. Okan-  agan spuds and vegetables wlli roll  in a week's time.  The Fraser river at the Mission  gauge shows that the river is keeping  at ^about the same height for a very  long time, and is playing havoc with  the low lands surrounding.  On Nicomen Island the situation is  causing the farmers a very anxious  time but they are handling the situation to the best of their ability under  the circumstances.  Last evening the river had reached  the 20 foot 4 inch mark which is very  high for this time of the year, but the  river may suddenly go down again.  The following are some high, water  marks:  1876  June 29   22 ft. 9 in  1882   June 14   23 ft. 10 in  1894   June 5   25 ft 9 in  1896   July 9   21 ft. 9 in  1900  'June 3   21 ft 1 in  1903 ........

Quite a number of cars  of mixed fruit from Calfornia have  been received, also one of mixed vegetables from the same place, and 1  expect this will probably be the last.  Some cars of Oregon cherries have  been received, but, as yet, no straight  cars of B. C. and what have come  forward by express have been rather  inferior, being small, and the basket;;  not any too well filled.  Up to date two cars of Gordon  Mead strawberries have arrived and  sold readily as. soon as they were unloaded. These berries arrived in firsl  class shape, except that in the last  car, for some reason or other which  it would be impossible to say, there  were a number, probably just one in  each basket, mouldy. However, the  trade were very well pleased with  the berries and had no difficulty in  selling them.  A   LITTLE  STORE  SOME 20^ VALUES  '    ���������    Vinegar, Mackenzie's, per bottle '.". .. .
