Two. of these ha\f  been due to oil excitement, and one  or two to the.report "that there was  coal in Sumas mountain. - Now-there  is Just a possibility that both may:  ���������e&is*-!:a'ceording..tat repor-t-^at'-the^Eost  office. "  '^T.he members ' of .the Abbotsford  Garage' have been "active in'having a  radio-station established in town and  have spent-considerable time in getting it into successful operation.  That they have so far failed is not  due to any fault on their part, but  to conditions locally. .    ,  Last week many peopla in A'obcts-  ford listened to ' the- entertainment  provided when Mr. Harrison or  Messrs.".Cope & Son, of ' Vancouver,  who was here for the purpose of es-  RASPBERRIES COME ON SLOWLY  tablishing a radio' station in Abbotsford j '      ���������' ';   -     '  .-;The result of the test which Mr.  Harrison gave-here was not as satisfactory as he" would have liked it to'  have, been. This started ��������� a long list  'of questions as.to the vrtiy and the  whercfore,*and,lhte"p'aper':has-been~ reliably informed by one who has spent  considerable, time testing in the radio  to-get-1 a satisfactory station in -the  Fraser.Valley.'. He said that the  presence of mineral or oil in the.-Ab-  bosford district would have to ' be  overcome before a successful radio  station could.be established,here.-Of  course all would like to see a radio  v ation at Abbotsford, but if either  coal or oil is found-in the district it  ���������wculd mean much more to the town.  Now the question is where is this  oil or mineral?.  HUNTINGDON, . July 18.���������The  berry ranches are at the height of  their population with gay pickers  from Bellingham/New Westminster,  Vancouver and Victoria and many intermediate points.' ;  There are not so many girls ab  last year, as the crop is below the average and-as the.berries are ripening  slowly, the growers are not so  anxious about pickers as they were a  week ago.1 It looked then as if the  crop could not be handled while in  good condition by the pickers in  sight, but many have returned home  since then,, unwilling to wait on tlu-,  reluctant fruit. If the vines should  ' get'"the much-needed rain in a few  days, tlie berries will benefit greatly. At present some of the owners  fear that the later fruit will not have  moisture enough to mature.  Mrs. J. W. Cain, of Champion,  Alta., is visiting her sister, Mrs. J.  W. Gray, for a t-ort ti..i<\  On Saturday even'r.- of this week  the local Maso?.e will entertain the  brother Masons of Sedro-Woolley,  Wash.  INSTALLS A FAST  DOUGH    MIXER  This week Mr. Albert Lee, our  local baker, "who is always looking  for something to improve his business, has installed" a Peerless Motor,  the only one in the Fraser Valley, for  mixing the dough for his bread. This  does away with the old scheme of  mixing the bread by hand, and is very  much quicker, also very much better.  One thousand loaves an hour is the  output of this wonderful machine.  As it requires a lot of dough to install this dough-mixer Mr. Lee expects that his business will be such as  to bring in the dough faster than  ever. He says he had to do it on  account of the local demand for his  bread, as people are realizing every  dav that money sent out of town for  bread does jiot make the dough plentiful in Abbotsford.  VERY   SUCCESSFUL   GARDEN  PARTY TIIVfUSDAY EVENING  ' One of'the moat successful garden  parties' in,.the'history of Abbotsford-  Look place on Thursday evening on  tlio spacious grounds'of St. Mai I hews  Chur.ch. Tlio.'laditis and gentleman  responsible for'U/e decoration of tlie  grounds had worked hard, and the  ,flags and bunting,' Japanese lanterns  and electric lights, and tastily, arranged tea tables and'\booths made a very  pretty scene on the" lawn. There were  numerous attractions for young and  old from the "Aunt Sally," which fho  boys specially-enjoyed! to the clock  golf,-beloved" of ,the Scotchmen.-,- The  guessing con teat was well patronized  and prizes wore 'won by Miss Alder,  Mrs.'Saunders and'Mrs. Webster.

Our popular blind hero, James,  Downie, sang at the arena on Friday evening.  Sing Sing prison "is' not such a bad  place after all, according to Thomas  Meighan, Paramount star, who comes  to the Abbotsford Theatre next Sat-  day, July 29th. in his' latest starring  vehicle, "The City of Silent Men.'  Mr. Meighan and his company spent  more than two weeks at the famous  penitentiary, taking scenes for the  new picture, and,in many of these the  warden and the guards and even some  of the prisoners, appear.  * "Prison conditions are now different from what they used to be,"  said Mr. Meighan. * "The men are  treated more like human beings.  They all seem cheerful, they are not  compelled to have their'heads shaved,  or to wear stripes, and they can furnish and decorate their cells to suit  their own fancies. They have their  periods of recreations, and their  games, such as . baseball, handball,  etc.; have their own motion picture  theatre, publish their own prison  newspaper, and have many other  means of diversion."  [n his new"production, Mr. Meighan d plays the role of a country youth  -who is sent to serve a term in Sing  Sing, and to secure the utmost realism, the scenes were taken in the exact locale of the story. The direction was by Tom Forman and the  supporting cast includes Lois' Wilson,  Kate Bruce, Paul Everton, George  MacQuarrie and Guy Oliver.  TIME TO CRT BUSY  BEFORE TOO LATE  Mrs. E N.v N.

It is  quite a hall, but that is not the only  serious phase of the matter. Several large trucks are doing the haul-  and the road does not appear U  stand it. The result will be that in  the course of the next week or ten  days the Huntingdon-Riverside road  between the St. Nicholas pit and the  fprry will be full of holes. Are the  Abbotsford people going to stand for  this?

THE ABBQTS&ORD POST  Published Every Friday  A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  F  R1DAY,     JULY   21,   1922  Would it not be a good idea for our j JW*  but ^decidedly p  town   to   provide   a   tourist  canipinu      , j h has lakcn piace in recent years  could avail l  '  encouraging  the    better  ground where the tourist  himself of the luxuries that a first-  class small camping ground could be  equipped   with?     It  would  put    the  town on the map for the tourist trade'  for all time to come. When the pave-'  inent is' completed to Sumas (b\vn-;in  Washington there is sure to    be    a  number come to B. C. by that route  owing to the fact that Blaine is now  quite overcrowded on holdiays    and  very often on other days. Tourists do  not like delays, especially when coming to B. C. and for that reason will  probably, take the new route, as a few  hours' in B. C, enjoying    the    sunny  climate of our    fair   province    is' all  they want.  Many of these tourists leave home  with the idea of camping out and will  ordinarily go some distance out of  their way to a real good camping  ground.   Let us get busy.  Mt. Lehman  Money brought into this province  by the tourists u is as good as that  from any other source, and as' useful.  We get accretions of wealth from the  precious metals, but they have to b^  mined; from the forest, but k has to  be logged; from the sea, but the fish  have to be caught and cannod. Tourist money is brought to us; delivered  at'our very' doors without our having had to undergo any of the before-mentioned laborious prepara-  tins. This is the,time of year when  tourists are coming to us by the  hundreds', bringing treasure in, both  hands. A trip any Sunday along one  of our marine drives --proves this;  one will see a score of- automobiles  with a Los Angtles or other southern  label in one afternoon.    -  ,The example par excellence of a  country that'has scientifically developed the tourist, business is afforded by Switzerland, where, before  the war, it was a national asset bringing in annually to that country an a-  mount equal to many millions of dollars. The war of course knocked  everything -endways,, and. though  Switzerland received a greater number than usual of-royal guests of one  sort or another, the.tourist business  proper fell-off. Itris recovering now,  and the essential qualifications of  caterers to .tourists being possessed  by the' SwissMn a pre-eminent degree  it .will, ultimately resume its former  sway.-��������� If was. the knowledge of what  Switzerland has done and is able still  to' do in this direction that made Mr.  Carl P. Huebscher say, when he visited us last year, that we were not living up, to our possibilities'. As th-  Swiss consul-general, he told us that  we possessed the Switzerland of A-  merica, and that by proper management, including the making of roads  ���������and the establishment of suitable  hotels we should soon find out the  benefit of our enterprise and get  ample returns from it.  ln   this   matter- the  extraordinary  -development of the automobile is a  principal factor. Whether fongood or  ill, gasoline is a force to be reckoned  t with.    The first requirement of the  -.possessor of an automobile is to have  ,. somewhere to go.    He therefore becomes an enthusiast in the cause oi  - good roads.    Good roads are his fa-  ' vorite desideratum, and the haunting  desire of the automobilist is to find  _ roads that lead somewhere. He lik.os  ," variety, and there are times when he  ; is prepared for a long stretch; not a  few miles but a few-hundreds of miles  A policy of road-building therefore  is the first step to attract tourists to  -. this counry of lavish scenic beauty.  There should be a road up the Squa-  -. mish   Valley,   and   a   trunk   road   to  '" Lillooet.    Our interior is not opened  up as it should be, and its beauties of  mountain and  sea,  river  and  valley  are comparatively inaccessible.      The  -  success and popularity of the    Island  Highway afford an instance of what  can  be done in this direction.  Some years ago California woke  up to the necessities of .the case and  ",: floated a $20,000,000 loan for internal road building. The wisdom of  that course has never been questioned  In 1917 the act providing for a statewide system of durable hard roads in  Illinois was passed by .the Legislature of that state and at the November election in 1918 it was approved  by the electors of the state by a majority of 212,405 votes. The act provided for a bond issue of $60,000,-  000, the work to be under the supervision of the state department of  public works and buildings. As a result Illinois is' being covered with a  network of fine roads, to the great  relief of the agricultural population  and the delight of tourists. These  are cases in point. But neither Illinois nor California have such attractions to present to users of roads as  our own province has.-���������Province.  A  GRATIFYING   CHANGE  and which is    becoming    more    pronounced.  A pleasing manifestation of-this  was given a few days ago when, addressing one of our Western Canadian Clubs, Hon. H. II. Stevens, who  was a minister in the Meighen Government, frankly stated that he believed the King Government was honestly desirous of helping the farmers of Canada in their present difficulties and was earnestly seeking **  .way whereby practical assistance  could be rendered the agricultural  industry.  Newspaper despatches reporting  the proceedings of the Parliamentary  Committee investigating the problo-m  of wheat marketing indicate that the  members, in giving consideration to  this large and vitally important subject, are not trying to make a party  capital for themselves', and to place  their political opponents in a false  light, but are sincerely striving to  evolve a policy and device ways and  means which will be practical and  provide for the removal of present  disabilities imposed on agriculture,  and give to the producer of grain a  reasonable guarantee that he will receive the largest possible financial  returns from his labor.  Both from the purely Western and  the larger national standpoint tho attitude now being- displayed towards  ��������� agriculture is most encouraging, and  \ holds promise that the same patriotic  and business-like views will prevail  when Parliament is called upon to  deal with the other great national  questions,, in the wise solution of  which is bound up the -welfare and  prosperity of the people of this Dominion.  And why should this bigger, better, national viewpoint not prevail in  our national Parliament? Considered  in the mass, the Canadian people,  while interested as all people living  .under a' democratic form of government must be interested in the organization and policies ' of political  parties, are not rapidly partizan and  more concerned in the fortunes;;of  a political party than in the good  government of the country and'the  wise administration of Canada's affairs. "   '  There was' a time when it 'seemed  to be the accepted view that when  one party announced its policy on a  given question, whether that, party be  in office or in opposition,- "there was  only one thing for the other party to  do, and that was to oppose the policy  announced regardless of its merits.  Fortunately for Canada that time  now seems' to have largely passed,  and today political leaders are ' becoming more and more willing . to  acknowledge the good features' of  their opponent's-policy-and to. show  a readiness to co-operate in. -still  further strengthening'such policy and  carrying it into-successful operation.  In these difficult and- trying times  through which the whole world "is  passing it is not" partizan, super-critical government that Canada requires, but patriotic, constructive cooperation by all members at Ottawa,  regardless of the party with which  they are aligned with the one common object of giving the Dominion  wise, sane, business-like administration. Let, there be suggestion, and  criticism and even opposition when  it is called for in the public interest,  but the niain guiding motive of Liberals', Conservatives, Progressives  and Labor needs to be the advancement of Canada's highest welfare  and thes ound development of national policies with a view to the happiness of the.Canadian people and the  enhancement of the prosperity of the  country at large.  We repeat, therefore, that present  signs are both gratifying and encouraging, and especially so to the men  and women engaged in the banner  Canadian industry, agriculture,  which in the past has been the chief  sufferer among Canadian industries  from tlie old-style bitter partisanship  which opposed merely because the  ideas and policies' emanated from  political opponents.

John Hart,'minister  of finance, who, for several months  has been/busy, with , the department  officials.-working out the details of  distribution" of profits. ' He stated  that the' profits' for September 30 to  March'31'had been, $1,231,365 and  the profits up to that time were $5 41,  603. a total of $1,772,971.  The government, distributed from  the profits made,up to. Sept..30 the  sum ol'. $400,00, retaining the balance until such time as a reserve  fund could be decided upon. Of the  total profits it has been decided to  place the odd $172,971 in a reserve  fund and give*'tlie municipalities  their half of the balance, -according  to the term's of the Liquor Control  'Act. This means that $1,200,000 will  bo divided between the government  and the municipalities.  Tho population of British Columbia is. officially given as 543,582 and  the-population'of tho- municipalities  sharing in tho liquor profits is 396,-  541, so that with'$600,000 going to  the municipalities "' the distribution  works out at almost exactly .$1.50  per capita.

Day and night, in  fair weather and foul, this grand old  man goes upon his errands of mercy.  Those who have read Whittier's  ,"Snqw Bound," remember the attractive picture of the country doctor on  his rounds, faithful at , the call,' of  duty, and by his sympathetic readiness to serve, endearing himself to  the whole community.  The tendency of young doctors today is- to locate in the cities because  they believe the up-to-date physician  must keep in contact with his colleagues, with technical facilities and  sources of professional information.  Tho rural districts must compete  with the city to bring the doctors  back to country practise by developing hospitals, laboratories and public  health organizations.  ' Still, there" arc country doctors,  general practicioners grown gray -��������� in  the service of- humanity, who would  not change places with any city specialist, because of the personal satisfaction they have found i in winning  year after year the regard, and,even  the strong affection of an entire  rural neighborhood.'

WINNIPEG,     July   18.���������Manitoba,-  is to have a government    of    United  Farmers, following the precedent set-  just a year ago by "the province    of  Alberta.  Yesterday, the Liberal government  of Hon. T.  C.    Norris went to    the  electors for a vote of confidence and    ���������  was rejected.  Premier Norris himself Avas re;-  elected in Lansdowne, his old constituency, and Hon. Robert Jacob, his  new attorney-general, will set a place  in Winnipeg, but three of his collea-  KU0S���������Hon.'Dr. R.S. Thornton, minister of education; Hon. John Williams, minister of-agriculture, and  Hon. CD. McPherson, minister of  public'works���������went down to defeat.  ' Hon. Edward Brown, provincial  treasurer, had intended to run in the  deferred election in The Pas, but under tho' circumstances'- it is thought .  that he will retire to private life.  ' Mr- Norris will find himself at the  head of a. yroup of about eight members, one of four opposition groups  confronting a Farmer party,-which is  expected to have the support of a  clear majority over all in the new  house.  The United Farmers come to the  city with 24 members. In Winnipeg  ,their-allies, the Progressives, failed  to live up to their expectation, and  it appears that only one of their eight  candidates', R. W. Craig, K.. O, will  be-among the 10 chosen, but he will  give'his support to the Farmers. t ,  In a legislature of 55 members a  government can elect a speaker and -  carry on with a total of 29 members,  particularly when the opposition." is  divided, as it will be, in this case, and  there was no thought last night that  anything could prevent the United  Farmers from entering into control  of the administration    at    an    early  Premier Norris will undoubtedly  place his resignation in the hands "of  the'lieutenant-governor at once.  He will be asked to carry on until'  the Farmers have a chance to organize, and they will be called together  at an early date���������elected and probably defeated candidates���������to select.  a leader who will become automaticT  ally premier of the province.   .  It appeared to be  ;very .doubtful  if George C. Chipman will'be elected'  in Winnipeg, and it is impossible; to ,  predict- what effect his   personal de-.'  feat might have on   the.   prospect^ of -  his election to the leadership. ,  Mr   Chipman has been' considered.  in raanv quarters to be the   favorite  for the'position in   the    event, of a  Farmer victory.    He    has    been for'  years editor of the    Grain Growers  Guide, and,    therefore,      associated  with  the economic    and educational  work of the organized farmers' movement in the western provinces.

WEEK IN CALGARY  r The! volume of produce as well as  the variety is increasing weekly. The  prairie demand is decidedly off. The  market has been falling in price  with very little demand, notwithstanding, the fact that the crop is  short; There is no controlof distribution at the shipping end. Consignments' are coming in far heavier  than usual. Some of the retail merchants are receiving more than they  can.'dispose of, and Ave know of cases  where wholesalers are helping retail-  ��������� ers move their surplus consignments  rather than sacrifice the stuff. The  larger wholesalers have been waiting for the poorer grade of berries  and cherries to clean up, but as the  lowelr price of poor goods prevents  them from doing business' they are  beginning to threaten to sacrifice  their No. 1 goods in order to secure  their share of the trade. We conclude  that- consignments of staple commodities has biroken this market. There  is' no doubt a slack supply of money,  and the consumer is trying to make  it go "as far as possible. If growers  are going to get a fair return for  their, labors they will have to agree  tb-\cdhtrol. the ��������� distributions rather  . than pass' ''it' along, to a number, of  dealers here. i  Some fine Apricots have arrived in  Calgary  from Osoyoos. They are  large in size and' baskets    fairly well  1 filled.  ..'Bing and Lambert cherries are rolling in faster than the demand. The  quality is excellent, but for reasons  given above, prices are down.  ' Celery is arriving in car lots from  Armstrong. The pack and quality is  excellent'.  ..A few crate of strawberries are  still coming in L.C.L.���������mostly soft  arid of poor quality.  Rasps are being sent to Saskatchewan and "Manitoba in car lots. The  Alberta market will not pay the price  for pre-cooled stuff, owing to heavy  consignments of L.C.L. berries coming in sufficient volume to place the  pirice below what is asked for car  lot   stuff.  "Some of the jobbers are tryng to  bring in a car of rasps from Puyallup  to arrive here Monday. There is no  need for this', as B.C. is fully taking  care of their needs.

A.few strawberries continue to arrive on the market and go out at  prices ranging up to $2.75.

EDMONTON  Edmonton, July 13, 1922.  Business since the 1st of July has  been rather more dull than it was in  June. During the past week a couple  of cars of Oreston and Wynndel berries have landed in good shape. An  L. C. L. shipment arrived yesterday,  but was practically useless, as all  berries' showed heavy decay.  Our cherry market has been more  or less demoralized by consignment  cherries. There has been an opportunity to get part cars of cherries  here, but it was almost useless to  bring them in, as' the price asked for  them would not permit the regular  jobber to compete against competition he had.  The vegetable market is also badly demoralized as there is a very  large stock of new B. C. vegetables  in here at present. The approximate prices are as follows:  Strawberries, best, $4.00 to  $4.50  Raspberries, best. $4.00 to   4.50  Royal Anne Cherries, consignment.

He makes his escape, but arrives home just in time  to see his mother's funeral cortege  leaving the home. He goes ' west,  and in a new land, builds his' life  anew. He is tracked by a detective,  and he knows that he can be identified by his finger prints. How does  he win his freedom?

The prize list is bigger  and better than ever and the officials have informed this paper that  much more interest is being taken  this year than in any previous year.  The president is' delighted and has  made the boast that the Abbotsford-  Sumas fair will be the best fair on  the south side of the Fraser between  Chilliwack and Westminster. The  endeavor is to put all the other local  fairs in the shade. If you are not  boosting now get busy and do your  part, is the wish of the directors.  A new industry for New Westminster and one which will greatly benefit farmers of the Fraser Valley is  the potato starch plant now being  erected by the ...Pacific Starch Products; Limited, .at the southern end  of the Fraser River bridge.  The plant will have a capacity of  30 tons of potatoes, daily and will  give employment,to between 25 and  30 men and women, the major number being men.  To the farmers it will be a decided  boon because it will enable them to  dispose of their cull potatoes or their  second grades, which, heretofore they,  have had. no market for.  The plant to, be erected, it is estimated, will   cost    from    $35,000    to  ���������$40,000.    It will be of    wood    construction and in two sections, one and  two stories high.  It is anticipated that the plant will  be completed by the early fall when  production will begin at once.  Of great significance to the farmers of the Fraser Valley is' the company's determination to buy its potatoes entirely from white men, and  particularly from stockholders of the  company. Already there are 150  farmers of the valley    holding stock  in the, company, and it is expected  that those arid others who join thorn  will supply the plant.  That the field for such a plant in  Canada is a good one is shown by  statistics indicating that Canada has  been importing 10,000,000 lbs. of  starch and starch products per annum, with the United States' the biggest exporter.  Lack of initiative of starch making  plants, alone is responsible   for this  condition.    Canadian  farmers    grow  potatoes cheaply enough to.meet this  competition and supply them at a  profit to the starch factories above  the border. But hitherto there have  'been very few starch factories, the  present one, to be located hero, being the only one west of Ontario.  Approximately 50,000 tons of potatoes are produced yearly in the  Fraser Valley, of .which 35 per cent,  or 21,000 tons, even under the most  favorable conditions will be graded  No. 2. At present the potato growers  have no means of disposing of these  except by feeding them to stock, but  No. 2, or cull potatoes are just as saf-  "isafctory for manufacturing purposes' as No. 1. This vast supply of No.  2 potatoes the Pacific Starch Products proposes to use.  While it is not expected to limit  the output of the plant this year to  starch, next year the manufacture of  starch products'will be begun. These  products' include dextrine, glucose,  potato flour, edible starch, sago and  tapioca.  Dextrine is used in large quantities by textile manufacturers as a  dressing, and also in gum, paste and  sizing. '.������������������'������������������  Glucose is used most extensively  in the candy and jam industries. |  Potato flour is a valuable    aid to  the. baking trade.    It is rich in vita  mines and improves the flavor of pro  ducts.  For edible starch,   sago and   tapi  oca products   there is'   an    immense,  market.    For food uses, starch made'  from potatoes is far superior to corn  starch,  being    asbolutely    tasteless,  and not having the unpleasant flavor  of corn oil, as starch made from corn  ['always has.  ��������� Potato starch for laundry purposes  also, is declared to be   far   superior  to other varieties.  Such is the range of products of  New Westminster's forthcoming hew  industry. That it should be welcomed by the farmer is apparent. Eventually, it is the dream of the organize  ers of the company, that the whole  Fraser Valley may be linked up, 'all  potatoes for local consumption being  brought to the factory and there  graded. From thence' the No. I's  will be sent to Vancouver on regular  days and. with proper administration  of this business, eventually oust.the  Oriental as a competitor in this qiar-  ket. From that time on if not'before the potato industry of the Fraser Valley will be on a yaying basjs!

This does not  mean that the amount which you subscribed at the time of building 'the  hospital gives you the annual vote.

This means that you have to becoine  a member, and that will, cosf $5 '00  each year. It is worth it and the  institution should have the support  of every resident of the distr^t.
