Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,    JULY   >4, 1922  *}  Some people and some towns, are  never satisfied���������some    people    with  conditions and some towns with, the  name, which has fallen to'   their lot.  A town name    is a    very    important  matter, often, so the people who reside there think.    There'    arc    even  people in Mission City    who    would  like to see the name changed.     Port  Coquitlam people are quite peeved if  you call the    town    Coquitlam    and  forget the Port.    Port Haney is now  oftener known by the name of Haney  than Port Haney.      Port    Hammond  still sticks to -Port.   .Looking up    the  local paper one    notices    that    Port  Hammond appears oftener than does  just simply,  the    word      Hammond,  while Haney is oftener    than'  Port  Haney,   .' Of    course    this    may    be  done for other'purposes.      Ft  Langley still hangs to that word Fort, perhaps for a matter of history..  For" several'years the people of  Abbotsford. have been discussing the  question'as to whether. .Abbotsford  should be spelt with one .or with two  "t's," but now it is ..probable . that  - since the matter has been decided by  Mr. Robertson of the B. C. Geographical Board'wlio says that .Mr. J. C.  McClure/son of the.McClure who laid  the tow'nsite, that- only one "t"  should appear in the word, that the  matter will now- be settled,.for some  time.

"Of course the. Conservatives  might" take* another view of the  matter and" think he still deserves a  reward" for' services rendered.  prac ically no administrative cost.  T< uohing on,.the tariff. Mr. Fisher'  asked if it was'hot sound policy, '.to  encourage the manufacture of articles "used by Canadians in Canada,'  from Canadian,materials and by Canadian workmen, so that .wealth could  be accumulated in Canada and then  taxed, to pay off the national debt.  Or; he inquired, should the national  resources, be plundered and sold iii  crude form, presenting to other counties'the profits arid employment and  leaving Canadians bond ��������� slaves,, forever paying interest on the national  mortgage?"  "Tncie arc a hundred   arguments  in' favor of the    protective    policy,"  declared Mr. Fisher.    "There is only  one of any weight that is    ever.rused  against it, viz: that if there were no  Customs Tariff, Canadians might be  able to buy sonic imported , articles  cheaper than they    now    buy - some  Canadian articles.    There is' not the  slightest indication that the abolition  of customs duties in    Canada would  produce this result. On the contrary,  there are the strongest   reasons'   tor  believing that, if the Customs   tariff  were abolished, the manufacturers of  other countries would flood the Canadian    market   with    their    surplus  goods at prices below the cost of production, until many Canadian factories were-forced out of business, lhen  Unmanufactured of other countries,  having largely eliminated    Canadian  competition, . could, set,. .what ..price  they wished for, their    goods in Canada   and in the end Canadians would  pay'more, not less, for the manufacturers goods,they buy.    As a matter  of fact, the prices of Canadian manvi-,  facturers' compare ' favorably    with,  and in many cases are    lower , than,  the prices of' the   manufacturers   of  other countries where    living conditions are.similiar to ours: The majority of Canadians must-   believe that  this is so, because, when   the   Tarifi  Commission toured Canada in 1������<50.  we asked    for    specific      proof    ot  charges to the contrary, but   our re-,  quest was-  unanswered,    except   by  vague general statements'..  The fact  that 80 per-cent, of the purchases, of  Canada's, largest   departmental. store  are Canadian    goods   -is .

STHA\VKER"KY PESTS AND  THEIR   CONTROL  THE; MANUFACTURERS'  POINT OF VTEW  In his, presidential,address, at the  opening .session ,bf the .annual meeting of the Canadian "Manufacturers*  Association on June 20," Mr. W. S  Fisher,,, St. John, laid stress on the  development of Canada's.national resources as the only way of reducing  the-national debt.  "The national debt of Canada,"  said Mr... Fisher, .."has increased from  $336,000,000 in 1914" to $2/427,000,-  00.0''at"the "present time. Provision  mfist "be made not .only to pay the interest (on this debt," but also to reduce  :'it/ How'is-, this Wb'e done? Taxation will/raise, enough money,to pay  current expenditures, including interr  est, but no form of taxation of, our  present wealth practically applied to reduce the pricipal. That  can only be diminished by developing  .the national resources "of'the country.  ��������� The farms,,the "mines, the forests, the  ' fisheries .iand 'the .factories, if "trade  is'.wisely stimulated, _will' provide  tlie wealth*, which will pay off this  debt. " in' other words, the earning  power', of Canada -mustf be vastly, increased "arid all national, policies  should be directed to that end.  '."In the determination of these policies the following will be the chief  factors, government, raw .material,  power supply, finance, labor, transportation and rnarkets." .  ! Dealing with,',the, functions of government ���������Mr. Fisher pled for a judicious abstinence from harmful activity, pointing to the vast network of  laws, regulations and restrictions,,  many of .which were either worthless  or injurious, produced by various  governing bodies. Further the  country needed rational and rigid  economy in expenditures. ;  : "Canada should also go slowly in  regard to social legislation, which is  being constantly'J urged ;by people  who are not as a rule large taxpayers," said Mr. Fisher. "They propose, but others pay. A certain degree of progress in . social conditions  is commendable and necessary, but  this must not run ahead of the earning power of taxpayers and thus lead  to the confiscation of savings, a  course which must end in financial  disaster'-',' ".__"'"  Warning his hearers' that capital  flies from a country where it is taxed unduly,or is .threatened /with con-  fiscatiori, Mr. Fisher ..urged that manufacturing and other forms of production should not have to bear an  unreasonable��������� ���������share of taxation.  While expressing no liking for the  sales tax, he thought that the Gov-  errimeiit had "acted wisely in increase  ing it. for it had the merit of providing a large amount of revenue   with  The small-fruit-industryhas made  notable growth in British Columbia  during recent years. An example  of this is furnished by the acreage  tinder straAvbcrries which quadrupled  in three years. This rapid development has however been accompanied  by ail equally rapid extension of insect' injury, the strawberry root  weevil having in some districts as-,  sumed sei'ious proportions. ,    -  ' As far back as 1918 an arrangement was arrived at by the Dominion  Department of Agriculture with the  provincial government for the use of  six acres of land in the centre of the  strawberry-growing district of Gordon Head, Vancouver Island, with a  view to demonstrating systems ol  crop rotation suitable to strawberry  culture and to elucidate if possible  the problem of .weevil control. The  ���������results of the experiments and investigation that have been carried on  are told in Pamphlet ' No. C, of the  Dominion Department of Agriculture,  by Mr. W. Downes, Assistant Entomologist of the Entomological Branch.  Of the insects' that, Mr. Downes deals  with, the strawberry root weevil is  the most persistant and most aggressive.. The weevils emerge as adults*  in the summer and deposit their eggs?  usually near the crowns of the planu  or drop them indiscriminately oi  loose soil any time from the middK  of July to the first week in Sop tern  ber. , On, hatching, the larvae worl  their way down to thcroots, lie dormant during the winter montliy, anc  start their depredations with tin  spring. During May the adults com  riiehce to appear. They do not continue their attention to strawberries  but the grub will attack the roots o!  raspberries, blackberries, timothy .  white clover, red clover and othei  growths.  " Two main lines of control have  been revealed. These are cultural  methods (which include the,plough  ing of infested fields at ��������� the prope:  time;of year ,and the irotation ,o  crops) and the use' of weeyil-proo  barriers. Both . methods are full}  described- in the ��������� phamphlet.

On the .other side  there are only prophecies of what  might be, if certain theories were..put  into effect without, regard for the  wisdom of experience-and the policies of other countries."     .  ADVERTISING THAT P.AY������.  C. H. Markham,. president of-the  Illinois Central Railroad, .is one ;of  the outstanding advocates of .institutional advertising in the country. He  claims that experience has taught  him that it pays in the establishment  of tangible goodwill, which all wise,  business men recognize as the basis  upon which lasting success is built.  "If you tell the public the truth  about your business it is not nearly  so likelv to imagine something that is  untrue," says Mr. Markham in the  June number of System.  In support of his contention .he  cites an incident that recently capie  to his attention that is worthy of  the serious consideration of the guiding executive of every big business  institution in the country. In the  Pullman smoker of a train running  from Memphis to Chicago, there was  gathered a group of men who had  been traveling over many railroads  and the discussion naturally turned  to the merits of various railroads.  "Late trains" were the bone of contention and the conversation became  heated. One man finally produced  a newspaper containing an advertisement of the Illinois Central** record  of on-time arrivals of ..passenger  trains during 1921. Introduction of  that advertisement into the; debate  eliminated that railroad from discus-  sion/the opinion seeming ,to, be suddenly, general that the Illinois Central  was all right.: , \       ,���������,,���������  Mr. Markham says that probably  the very railroads that these.passengers, condemned had a record of on-  time arrivals-as good as that of the  Illinois Central. But the other roads  had not forestalled ill will by publishing all the facts but had.permitted  their reputation for service to < rest  unon one.or two experiences of individuals with late trains.

The limelight being turned on Mr.  '.asker so dramatically, has started  Americans wondering just what personal magnetism he employs' to have  limself and his policies rated so  lighly by the present administration.  The answer,    so observers    say, is  .linners.  Whenever Mr. Lasker wants some-  hing done he gives a dinner.

This should read  "to strawberries." The eilror in this'  connection is' regretted.  Vancouver Island.���������The    percentage of the Strawberry crop   this season will be under r>0 per cent .of that  of last year.    A large portion of   the  berries will'not mature owing to the  total absence of rain.      It is'feared  that  Raspberries and     Loganberries  will suffeir in the-same    proportion.  The first car of    Strawberries    was  shipped on June 20, twelve days' later  than last year.

Rutland.���������The     first     Strawberries  were on the market on June 10, but  crop is very light, due to''the exceedingly .bot weather.      The first week  in June the temperature ranged from  80 degress to 85;.degrees,-thus forcing ripening.      Cane fruits   bloomed  heavily, but there is    much blasting,  and a crop of only 70    per    cent   of  that of 1921 is expected.   Kelowna���������  All small fruits are expected to yield  10 per cent over 1921.    Mirror Lake.   There is a very slight increase    in  the acreage to Strawberries', but they  are being grown but little in this  district.
