This town is divided in opinion on  the advisability of having a, government-liquor store located here. On  Dominion Day, Mr. J. II. Falconer, of  the government liquor commission,  called on some of the citizens in reference to this matter. When he left  a hurried meeting of tho  of the Board of Trade was called in  Lhe chamber of the Bank pf Montreal.  As it was a holiday most of the members were out of town, but eleven reported to be present. Having a  quorum, they proceeded to business  aud resolved to scud a wire to Victoria on tlie following day, slating  that the Board of Trade of Abbotsford and district wished to have a  liquor otore located in Abbotsford.  A few weeks ago under the auspices of the local W. (J. T. U. and  others similarly into rested,' a^ petition was circulated for signatures-to  ['be'sent. 16 'the Board-of Lhj:uViT"co;u'-/  mis'sioners requesting    that a'liquor  store be'not located in Abbotsford.  The territory' embraced by this petition was the same as for the local  Board of Trade, which is Abbotsford  and District. The number cf citizens  who signed this petition is given out  as 180; besdes a . few children who  member's ; so desired to sign it, and were permitted to do so, but whose names were  erased before the petition was sent  off. aSo far as known to the public  no other organizations have passed on  this   question.  At th eregular Board of Trade  meeting on'Monday evening, two applications were received requesting  the endorsement of the Board for the  position of local liquor'vendor. Nominations were made and Capt. G.  Baldwin was desired'the choice by a  miniII majority, a good number refraining from voting on the question.

S*AGE TW������  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  Published  Every Friday  Member of the Canadian Weekly.   Newspapers-    Association,  FRIDAY, JULY 8, 1921  It is' a wonder'how the people are  now  getting "on  to"   the  Oliver administration.    It has   been   slow   in  coming, but it has come and  is now  alioui. bore,  when  the present  premier will  have to adbicatc his present  position for the sake of his party and  go'back to the Delta to dig potatoes  It won't bo the same now���������he is rich  in experience, at least���������and it. won't  be  such   a   hard   job   to   make  both  ends of the row meet as it was sonw  years ago, before he had a'peep into  the place    where money was. kept���������  now he has reached his' ambition aiu  in retiring he can keep his mind occupied,   while  digging,   maybe  naint  the potatoes as they appear, classing  them as a    friend or opponent,    and  as'he lays them to one side can have  lots   of   fun   "making   believe"   (hey  are dollars.  Under the heading "Morals of Oliver Government' the New Westminster' Columbian has' the following to  say: This healing no doubt will provoke a smile on'tlie part of every  fader familiar with proceedings at  Victoria, for "morals" they have nix;  but an examination of the standards  j-'-vprnir.g in lieu of morals is partic-  ujr.rly timely in view of the recent  performances of master and   mail.  The liquor warehouse deal is typical and no more dishonest transaction <"f the Oliver government clur-  ii-g its whole career. The party  management have been caught red-  handed with their hands in the public  treasury to secure funds wherewith  to reward a henchman and incidentally to punish a back-slider from the  fo?d. The raid was originated before the appointment of*the liquor  ccntrol board, but complacently accepted by the board, as their very  piofitable positions depend upon their  usefulness to the party in possession  at Victoria.  Large   expenditures   are   supposed  to wait upvi the vote of the legisla-  ti re,   but  in  this instance  the  legislature   has- been   flouted   by   the  expenditure  of a hundred     and     fifty  .thousand     dollars,    under    arrangements   while   the   house   was   in  session, but concluded without vote and  without   mention   in   the   legislature. J  The proceeding evidently was assum- |  ed to be perfectly safe with the present   legislature,  because  it  is  doubtful   if   any- member   supporting   the  Oliver  government is  in   position  to  have inquiry made into anything exemplifying the    sources of the    fund  ��������� which .elected him and his colleague.-:  Thpre   is   a   financial   "controller"  as part of the top-heavy civil service  at Victoria, but this controller is' the  creature or creation of the party in  power, who found in office an auditor  general  not    likely to    countenance  the irregular issue of a  cheque for  any  sinister  transaction   and  so  removed  him and  placed the treasury  under the control of a new man    of  their own choice.    This is one of the  results.    The   treasury   in   this   case  proved   wide   open   to   the   political  raider.  being offered for sale by the owners  aud he finds that (he only wrong  committed was by the official of (he  government service in South Vancouver who "lied" to tho too-confiding boa I'd! He lias censure, however, for two . of the witnesses���������-a'  hint to any other "Liberals" who  poach on their government. When it  is remembered (hat, the man who  makes this peculiar finding, is the  instrument, chosen by the Premier to  make the purchase \'<.f the twenty  million dollar mystery being can ied  on under the name of the Pacific  Great Eastern , Uic ordinary taxpayer  has cause for so little worry.      ���������   ���������  A million dollars or more has been  lent,  to   friends  of   the  ministry  and  others  lo  promise  the establishment  of industries  more or less spectacular.  But  for  the  homely   industry  of  farming on   Nicomen   Island,   for  instance,   it  seems   impossible   to   lind  any -money.       For  Jive   years   there  has   been   before   the  Oliver   government an offer from  Ottawa to speiw  about eighty     thousand     dollars    or  more for (he protection of'that I si and  on   condition   that     Victoria     won!-  contribute,a quota estimated at Lwen-  cy thousand. As a clincher to his other' "reasons"   for  not   accepting  thif  .���������>ffcr, Mr. Oliver stated recently that  -here being no appropriation  by  th  legislature   the  money   could   not   be  found by his government..  But why ;'  there one standard for the finding o  money (o buy a warehouse at twic  its   market   value,   and   another   and  stricter  one   when   money   is   needer*.  to save settlers���������and soldier settlers  at  that���������--from   ruin?   i ������  These are samples of the  of morals on the part of the  government.    They  constitute  of .this province may- be pcrma'nentl>  assured. Let tho people's money now,  being thrown to the winds he directed to putting landless men uponr the  manless lands; upon stocking' the  land with well-bred 'beef and" dairy  cattle, hogs, sheep -and poultry; upon  introducing the host varieties of  fruit frees, vinos and plants'; upon  instruction of y. producing community  along modern', .lines through (he.  agency of a great university; organization' of a system ol marketing  which might serve (he producer and  consumer; upon the opening'of highways, building of schools and establishment of telephones ystoms.  Such-work as tikis' is the.great op'  portunity of, tliis^gen'eration in Brit-,  isli Columbia.    It^is bigger than pol  ifical parties, and  '.offers a    commor  field   of  harmonious  action   for capital  and  labor, .fo-n'-'men  and   wonie;  of high and  low'degree.���������Tlie Sun.  ^aStofe-.

Bf.iumwuM������������������ ii. niyMwwi  nm,  waul  Olivr  a novelty in British Columbia. Whatever  may be said in criticism of provincial ministries of the past, ��������� i.heii  honesty has not been questioned. It,  has remained for "Honest" John Oliver to be sponsor for the first openly corrupt administration with which  this  province   has   been   cursed.  WKJjIK  IN CALGAKY  There  is a purchasing    agent    as  part of the expensive machinery hut  he is not permitted to interfere with  the larger political grafts. He is good  enough  to arrange for the  purchase  of a bottle of ink or a lead pencil, but  when a seventy thousand dollar property is to be bought for a hundred  and   fifty   thousand   dollars,   from   a  party   manager,   the   purchasing   a-  ���������   gent   is. relegated   to   limbo.   That  ?s  ,    quite all   right  with the  Oliver  government. " '������������������  For this we have the word, or the  writing which  is safer  to  follow, of  "Honest" John himself.     Only an appeal   to   the   Lieutenant-Governor  to  take cognizance of tho looting going  on   in   his very  presenco,   caused   the  Prime   Minister   to   take   any   public  notice of this bold graft,. And he has  come   out   with   a   whole-hearted   defence   of   tiie   thing.        Because   hi?  government a few months ago made  a  foolish lease whereby they were to  pay  one  of  their henchmen   the   full  value  of  a   warehouse as   the   rental  for   I'iv  years'   occupancy   of   it,   the  Prime  Minister argues  that  there  hi  a virtue in substituting purchase'   al  a   price   which   represents   only  nine  and a half years'  rental.  The gravel pit purchase was under  unwilling     invest '.'"���������><ion        when   the  .liquor warehouse h'!> was discovered.  The investigator was a close person  al  '"riend   of the  Premier,     an     employee' of   the   government, charged  with (he purchasing of properties for  the   Pacific   Great   Eastern   mystery  The  Prime  Minister's choice  of    investigator  is     vindicated,    from     his  standpoint, by the gravel pit finding  just . made    public.      This    official  of  tho  government   finds   that  there  was  no  fault  at all  on   the  part  of  any members of the sewerage board  who purchased a gravel pit they did  nor   need   and   have   not   used    at   a  price   double   that  at   which   it   was  V1S1!  bcr-  thc  Census returns throughout the  Province of British Columbia show  remarkable increases of population  in the cities and small increases    in  ! .he   farming  and   ranching  districts  says the Vancouver Sun.  The folks in the cities only live so  long as the folks in the country supply the wherewitha.il. ~ Figures now  being compiled will show that tin  city overhead charges have been  mounting up with a country reveiim.-  not increasing in  proportion.  Mouths in the cities must be fed.  Milk, eggs, meat, fruit���������these things  in abundance are needed to sustain  the present crowd and lay a good  strong basis of health for the citizens yet to come.  In our province there is land enough to produce grub for one hunrl  red times our present population. We  have the spectacle of immense oper  stretches and no men and women to  do  the  planting  or  the  reaping.  On  less  than a gallon  of gas yoi  oan ride from Vancouver to places in  nearby valleys where poultry ar.e being killed and burned because of the  absence of farm help and of a pro-  ltable   cash   market.

Wigen, veteran strawberry grower and manager of the Cooperative Association, YVynndel, deserves credit for the way he improved, the pack of the .Wyn'hdel berries  this year. The hallock is the standard one, and the berries are equal  to any, coming on this market from  British Columbia,. All strawed berries have sold at a premium over irn-  strawed ones on the prairie market  this' year. Our mainland and island  strawberry growers should give ' the  Clark's Seedling a trial for a'shipper; it will sell for more than any  other berry .and this should compensate   for the  light  yield.
