Yale will meet in  convention at Abbotsford on Saturday, July 2 8. The meeting to convene at 10 a. m. Preparations are  under way to accommodate a large  attendance which is looked for, owing  to the fact that the new federal association is to be formed and in all  probability a standard bearer will be  chosen to represent tho Liberal party in the forthcoming fedoral elections.  Chilliwack and Dewdney each send  fifty delegates with an equal-number  of lady delegates. Dewdney having  thirteen local associations will have  five delegates or thereabouts, to each  local association, with a correspond-  in number of ladies invited. Yale  has fifteen delegates with an equal  number of ladies.  Chilliwack and Yale Liberals are  strongly lined up behind Mr. C. YV.  Munroe, ex--M. P. P. ol' Chilliwack  riding and it is generally felt that he  will carry off the nomination should  the convention decide to proceed with  'nomination. In Dewdney opinion is  somewhat divided. Attention appears to centre around the following:  Mr. Stuart Henderson of Ashcroft, B.  C, Capt. D. B. Martyn of Port Haney,  and now at the front again, and who  would undoubtedly have been the  candidate had not he heard his  country's call previous fo the recent  provincial elections, a nd Mr. J.

Matsqui  Centre ,  The following is the result of the  Matsqui school:  Advanced    course,    junior    grade.  Bargained  ast winter before the berry season  the King-Beach Manufacturing Company contracted for some 8 0 tons ot  raspberries at the rate of 5:i/,<! a lb.  the berries to be delivered at the  factory in pails. Owing to the good  prospects for the berry prices elsewhere the company this weeq raised  the price one cent a lb. above the  price bargained for with the growers.  This looks good and should be appreciated by their customers, as." they  could undoubtedly have been held to  the cantract price, that is if a contract is of any account.  This is another instance of the way  this company is showing their interest in the growers of the district.  The King-Beach takes the growers  strawberries, the raspberries, ��������� the  plums etc., and pays a fair market  price, thus'building up a business  that is not only remunerative to them  selves but helps the district as a fruit  district.  Mr. Hill of Hill's Store, was in Mission City yesterday.  On the basis of population British  Columbia  has  sent  more  volunteers  overseas than any other province in  Canada,  figures    recently    compiled  demonstrating this clearly.  Up to July 15, 32.S55 men were  recruited for service in the Canadian  forces, but in addition there was a  large number of men who went direct to Britain fo enlist in the Imperial  army, either rejoining their old units  or seeking service among old friends  Many also left for munition work in  the early days of the war, before  Canada had received a share of thai  work, while others entered the naval i  service. No count of these is to be  found in official statistics neither is  there any check on the number ;jf  men who were recalled to the colors  by allied nations.  in detail, the recruiting for the  various coast battalions is here given:  7th Battalion   16th Battalion  '.   | Maximum marks,  1000.

BATES, -    r. - Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JULY  2'  II)  , The question of conscription  is now Uie talk ol." (lie hour in  Canada. . .  Tlici'c are' various ideas on  conscription, and many men of  many minds. '"But there is not  one word against the conscrip-  . tion of men, but.many would  go much further and also have  the conscription of wealth.  Our candid opinion,  of   conscription is that everything that  ,- will help to win the war should  be conscripted.      Old men past  the military age should be con-'  scripted; not yet of  the    announced    military    age  should be conscripted and put  in training, if necessary, so as  to have a bunch of soldiers ready for 1918; one class ready i'oi  1919 and one ready for 1920.''  AIL men should be in readiness for war if necessary.  All wealth should be conscripted, so that the rich man  and the poor man would be on  the same basis.  The industries of the country  should be conscripted; and so  should the farm lands and the  fruit lands; or, anything that  will help to win the war.  As matters now stand, hovf  ever, there in a limit to the ma  chiney available for the carrying out of all these things. And  to do all this would be better  not done at all than not clone  well; and the one most important matter now that demands  the attention of Canada is to be  able to send more soldiers and  it canot be done too soon���������the  sooner the better; and while it  is being done perhaps the machinery for the other branches  of conscription can be perfected  Theories are good; but this is  not the day for theories; it is  the time for quick action.  The heart of Clifford Sifton  is sure in the right place. He  one of the strongest Liberals  ever in politics, would cast a-  side party leader and party foi  the 'striking force' that we can  put into the war.  Talks On Advertising  /'Advertising' 'Doesn't Pay".  ���������  (-From Hardware and Metal)  -Many men think-that . advertising is just the purchase ' of  newspaper space,' and slapping  into this space any old stuff  that occurs to their minds. They  think that if they 'advertise'  they'll get business. At least  this is what (hey thought, or  were- led to think, when they  began. .-.But as time passed, they  discovered .that 'advertising  didn't pay'.-  When J..hear a man say 'Advertising doesn't pay', .1. want to  pummel him���������pound him to a  pulp. Usually, tlie man who  says 'Advertising doesn't pay,'  is iiot quite un to his job. When  he says 'advertising doesn't pay'  he says a general thing. '1  thought, that if I spent $2 a  week in my local paper I could  buy great and instant success.'.I.  thought that , by spending a  little money in newspaper publicity, 1 wouldn't have to work  very hard myself, that people  would flock to my store, and  buy so much from me that my  store would be tiie busiest place  ia town.'  Think of it. Think, of the folly of thinking! Imagine a business man with thousands of  dollars invested professing to  believe that by parting with $2  or $5 or $20 a week, he can get  this sum multiplied several  times���������this without further effort.  If the purchase of newspaper  space, alone sufficed to give us  our money back the land would  be chuck full of advertisements  and their pages would be so  many that we would scarcely bo  able to carry the newspaper  home.  (To be continued)  From Victoria-the route led north  over Vancouver Island to Nanaimo.  This drive is one of the most beautiful in the Northwest, and especially  that part, leading over Malahat mountain. The road winds along the side  of the cliff overlooking! the Saanich  lay, and every'turn in the road is, a  setting for a new picture. From Nanaimo to Vancouver l.J. C, is a two  .i.ii(i one-half hour boat rido Machines are taken acr^js .'i the rato <">;'  .$7 and up, acording to the size of  the car. Vancouver is full of interst-  iug places where the tourist may  spend many enjoyable hours; 'days or  weeks. From over the Evergreen  highway south through Blaine, Bellingham,. Everett and Seattle and on  t.o Vancouver, Wash, the new interstate bridge over the Columbia river  is open to traffic to Portland, Or.  Mere the Evergreen highway turns  east up the Columbia river'. The  North Bank road, which is now under construction by the state of Wash  ington at White Salmon, Pasco and  Walla Walla, will be the official Evergreen highway when completed,but  until such time the public has the  wonderful Columbia river highway to  travel over.  . At Lewiston, Idaho, the road forks,  one leg going north and cutting 'oft  some 3 00 miles of travel for those of  the Northwest who wish to visit the  Yellowstone park. Tho other leg will  reach southeast through the Snake  river country and Intersect three  transcontinental'highways ' at Salt  Lake.,  The people of the Northwest have'  not fully awakened to the great bone-  lit of this highway. For sovoral  years every effort has been made to  open an all-year road to Seattle and  the Pacific. The great Sunset highway is only(open'for travel about live  months  in  the  year. During  the  months of April, May and June when  thousands of eastern Washngton ma.  'chines want to get to Seattle, it is  impossible for them to do so unless  they go down by Portland and over  the Columbia river highway. The  men''furthering the Evergreen highway deserve the support and encouragement of every'citizen and business  organization of the Northwest. They  are doing a pioneer work that few  would undertake.  humanity, and the needless suffering  arising out' of this neglect forms one  -of the blackest pages of modern his-  ory.  This was not written fo discourage  contributions to tho Red Cross, the  one organization trying to alleviate  pain, to heal and to cure 'in the universal welter of blood. .On the contrary,-it is suggested that ,this organization be lifted from its semiofficial position into the Cabinet, that  a Secretary of the Department of Red  Cross be appointed by, the President,  and that a sufficient number of millions���������a hundred, two hundred, it  uecessarp be set aside to create and,  operate the greatest and best hospital  equipment of any army in the field.  The taking over of the Helgian Relief work by the government supplies  tho precedent.  Read "The Aftermath of .Battlo"by  ICdward D. Toland if you would learn  what tlie lack, of adequate hospital  facilities moans to the men who arc  maimed for their country's-sake. Ask  yourself'whether you would like t.o  die in the horrors of tetanus because  there were not men enougjh, not  stretchers, ambulance's, .'hospital  trains, antispefics and surgeons enough'to cleanse your wound' before it  was too late.  Lot Congress appropriate as many  tens or hundreds of millions as are  necessary to make the American Red  Cross, the envy of the world without,  however, discouraging the stream of  voluntary gifts. With the privately  donated funds the Red Cross will not  be able to alleviate more than a  email part of'the misery in the hospitals of our allies and there will be  endless outlets, for the Red Cross  work right here at home.���������Pacific-  .'���������i-J ,000,000 For New I toads  With (he idea, of keeping highways  in good condition as     a war measure  and providing additional roads Minne  sota will spend $'1,000,00 0 on con-  sfructng and $570,000 for maintenance under state supervision., In the  Hi roe largo counties roads are to be  built by county funds and in other  parts of the state by bond isse returns.'  k:*Jai������C^.w^i������liiaB������2,4'.K;.i.;  "&  ////  <]/JQM'  fl������  s^ Jj|  (equal  $UffRt\C������i  Begging Charity for Heroes  Did Senator Bostock need the  letter of Clifford Sifton to put  him. on the right track?

PATHFINDERS   TO  MAIvE  TRIP  OVER   ALL-VEAH  JtOAD  The weather of this year is  during the fruit season the extreme of the season last year  If we had the happy medium i  would be better.  The putting on of the oil on  the stagnant waters around  Mission has had the effect of  putting the mosquitoes out of  business. Let us keep this in  mind for next year.  How did it ever happen is not  what we are concerned about,  but it has happened and the editor of the Merrit Herald has  been made a police magistrate.  As keeper of the scales of justice he' will undoubtedly nev<-u'  give short weight.  Years ago before there was a  Merritt with its coal mines a  J. P. of the Nicola used to render his decisions with the fol  lowing, "Give him the full ex  tent of the law" and the victim  very often got it.  With the playground of the Northwest as a terminus, the officials of  the Evergreen Highway Association  smarted from Victoria, B. C, oh Monday of last week in-Overland automobiles to blaze a new trail from  the Northwest to the Mexican border  The new highway will intersect seven  transcontinental highways and give  the thousands of tourists who will  visit the Pacific coast within the next  few years highway into the Pacific  Northwest.        ,  Ben F. Hill of Walla Walla, is the  president of the new association,and  A. J. Elrod, of Pasco, is secetary  Accompanying these two are high  state officials from the different  states through which they pass. Capt.  I. M. Howell, socretary of state of  Washington, represents the Northwest with Herbert Cuthbert secretary  of the Pacific Northwest Tourist Association at Victoria.

Congress is now   engaged   in   the  task of raising two billions by taxation and seven  billions through the  sale of bonds; there is practically no  limit to the funds that can be made  available for warfare, yet at the same  time  a  private  organization  is  begging in  every  city and  hamlet    for  donations to  help  take  care of  the  men who sacrifice their bodies on the  altar of patriotism.    Not a voice that  counts is raised against    the    most  drastic increase in taxation for war  purposes undertaken by any belligerent, yet of the many billions available  it seems impossible to obtain sufficient amounts  for a  really  adequate  hospital  and   medical  equipment.   If  sufficient   federal   funds   were  avai'-  abie, why should it be necessary for  the Red Cross to pass the hat,  The country's first and most  solemn duty is the provision of an  adequate and complete equipment  for the care of those whose bodies  are torn and maimed in the service  of their country. No part of tliis  task should be left to private charity.  Does anyone dream of oollecting money to buy field guns, helmets or  twelve-inch shells? Why then trust  to private charity to provide funds  with which to buy motor ambulances  bandages, drugs and medical supplies  for our own army?  The whole system is a survival of  the Middle Ages when the hired armies callously left their wounded to  shift for themselves more or less,  when.the mortality among the injur-'  ed and the sick was so high that it  seemed a waste of effort to try and  save them. This sinister survival of  the Dark Ages cost thousands of  wounded their lives as late as the  outbreak of the Great War.

I read that paper  -when I am at home and thinking about household  affairs.

It, is a massage none should not heed.  The following is taken from the letter:  "The world is in the final stages  of a death grapple. No such dire and  fearful tragedy has ever before occurred in the known history of mankind. The forces of tyranny and reaction throughout the world havo rallied for the last desperate struggle  The fate of liberty, human right and  free modern civilization are at sfako  The issue is still altogether undecided and hangs in the balance.  "We have eighty thousand men In  tho lighting line. It is not more  than our share. Their numbers are  being diminished by death and the  casualties of war. They aro driven  to the utmost of their physical powers by lack of reserves. Our reinforcements are almost exhausted.1'  "I am confident that I voice the  sentiments of many thousands of Canadians when 1 say that at this supreme moment we care nothing for  Borden or Laurier Conservatism or  Liberalism. The overwhelming importance of the crisis absolutely obliterates all considerations of persons;  or parties. The only thing that matters is:  "First-���������To put every possible ounce  of force into our striking power with  men, guns and munitions in order to  help the allies to win the victory for  liberty.  ���������'Second���������To stand by our men at.  ih.e front and give them abundant, re-  inioivei;i"nls and reserves to admit  ot rest and recuperation.  "Third���������To maintain the lioror of  Canada and redeem our pledge to  sec the war through fo the limit of  our capacity.  "We have to face facts, not theories.    The issue is simple. Either:  "First: Wo put our whole strengta  into the war. or second, we abandon  our men at the front aud dishonor  our solemn obligation.  "f will go further. The decision  of this issue will determine once for  all whether Canada is a nation, dominated and held together by a national will and a national sense of  .honor or is a helpless aggregation  of sectional communities held together only by time-serving consideration  of sectional interest.  "A Gunner" in the London Mail.  Many of us now wearing khaki are  realizing for the first timet he thrills  and tremors of book rainance for the  first time we are actually figuring '.n  the tales of "derringdo" which filled  our youth with delightful imaginings  and inspired us with clay dreams of  uo;..'e endeavor.  .Romance denied us in our youth  nas come with full hands flavor  our middle age with the rare spico  of hot adventure.  In two more years T shall havo  cached 4 0 that relentless barrier between spirited youth and clogging age.  Forty���������the milestone of memories  And .1 am grateful that in this the eleventh hour of youth 1 have been  able to touch 'the gown of fleeting  romance and to feel the thrill of  glowing adventue. I am glad that  for the first time I am able to know  something of the excitment and the  danger glorified, by those "heroes living in the pages of books I-loved. For  the first time I hear the clash of arms  the sharp word of command the roar  of guns, the tramp of men, not in the  day dreams of bookland, but in the  routine of a living day. Lying "dormant in the fallow years the vain  ior.gings of healthy boyhood have  been granted in full, and there is no  need of the printed word to snare the  glamor of old romances. Discomforts and hardships are trifles when  they are shared by the splendid  comrades of fond  memories  To us merging on middle age, perhaps more than to the younger men,  the sweet companionship of book  heroes is more real and present. We  realize more keenly what we have  missed, and the rekindling of- old  fires warms the blood and stirs the  heart. Myself, I have grown younger with the months. The old life is  thown off like a faded cloak, and despite hardships that are and dangers  that may be, I would not in my present mood exchange a barrack room  for an office.  There is a man in our battery who,  although young, is quite bald, and I  cannot look at him without recalling  the baldheaded young pirate in  "Treasure Island,"- Our hairless gunner wears a comforter fashioned like  a cap, the nightcap of the bold bad  buccaneers who under John Silver attack the blockhouse on Stevenson's  pirates' lair. One of these days I am  homing to hear him sing:  Sixteen men on a dead man's chest,  Yo  ho  ho  and a bottle  of  rum.  Women   Marriage and   Home  BETTER  BABIES   CONTEST  A better Babies contest will be a-  gain held at the Vancouver Exhibit  ion   next   month,  The obect of the contest is to secure improvement in the physical  condition of Babies; to stimulate the  interest of mothers in higher ideals  as standards.  The "Better Baby Contest" is .now  held in Vancouver for the fourth time  and ranks amongst the largest and  most up-to-date on the continent. The  Col. Green, son of Hetty Green was  recently married. He is rich but has  views on marriage,children and home  lifo. In interviews lie has the following to say.  The problem of marriage does not  lie as hcavilyl on the mind of the  poor, man as it does on a rich one.  The poor man has at least the comforting thought that he is the loved  head of the household and not the  treasury vault.  There is not a rich man in America who has nothad dozens of chances  to marry into dozens of families of  birth and breeding, but he must seek  the inner recesses of the woman's  soul and find if her affections ring  true.  1 want the right sort of gjirl or  woman; age doesn't matter if the  brain and heart are right.  I like a bashful girl.  I wouldn't have a professional or  business girl, because she's had too  many bumps from the world and has  lost her viewpoint on happiness of  the  home.  Every man seeking a wife should  look for the mother type. You will  know her by the pleasure she finds  ir. doing Utile acts of kindness for  others.    She can't hide her goodness.
