J\  -The annual banquet given in honor  of the Football Club by Professor Hill-  Tout on Saturday evening last was a  very successful affair. Mr. Chas. Hill-  Tout presided and a number of prominent business men, including ��������� Mr.  Alanson, Mr/ Tretheway, Mr. McEwen,  that "All Roads Lead.to Abbotsford/'  Mr.i Morley and Mr. Buckley, of Vancouver. About 100 gentlemen in all  sat down to supper, which was excellent, the different delicacies served by  Mr. Lee' helping wonderfully to bring  good cheer to: the hearts of all. (Not  to mention the various other ingredi-  .ents which :decorated the board.)  After ample justice had been done the  repast, the toast to:the King was proposed and drank with musical honors.  The next toast was to the ladies, to  which Mr. W. S. Hill-Tout, Mr. A. J.  Henderson'."and Mr. K. Robinson responded with, great eclat". These gentlemen dwelt on the various kind-;  .nesses-which.'the ladies had shown ta  ��������� the"'Abbotsford \31ub and"their?interest  in upholding manly sport at"all tiniest  The next -toast - of the. evening was  to Football.

Mr.-Buckley,'of Vancouver, responded., He-dwelt on football in the years  gone by both in Canada.and the Old  Country,   while  his  humorous   stories  of.football life "at college kept all,.in  laughter.' Mr. Chas. Hill-Tout spoke of  the> manliness .sport  instilled, into  a  person'.    He" related/episodes',of football  games 'Which  Have' been-played  arid - almost ..forgotten.    He-   praised  football  as  being    one    of the  most  manly sports which a man could play,  and dwelt on the'fact that itwas-iioor  sport- to win at any cost, but manly  sport to make a" good, clean fight for  the game.  ' Mr. Liddell, Mr. Knott and Mr. Robinson spoke on the various branches  of sport. Mr. Liddell touched on lacrosse. He .remarked that the football boys were not taking lacrosse up  as they should,* and hoped that they  would show more interest.  The toast to the Abbotsford Football  club was next.  Mr. Hill-Tout remarked on the great  success of the Abbotsford team. -The  team had played 19 games, won 12,  lost 5 and drawn 2. ��������� He hoped that the  team for the next season would do as  well.  Mr. Hill-Tout then presented ��������� the  team with medals, which was received  with great applause.  The toast to -our guests was responded to in a most humorous manner  by Mr. Buckley, his many stories and  jests being much appreciated. Next  came the toast of the evening to the  president of the club, Mr. C. B. Hill-  Tout.  Mr. Heath, the secretary, dwelt upon  the great interest Mr. -Hill-Tout had  taken in the club, and his untiring zeal  and energy in promoting clean sport.  How time and again he gave up business engagements to attend the games  and,meetings of the club. Three rousing cheers were then given the worthy  president, which nearly raided tie  roof, and "For he's a jolly good fellow"  was.sung with enthusiasmseldom seen  at a banquet.  ' The president's response was of the  most modest character. He remarked  that he had always been interested in  sport, and that he was happy when the  boys were enjoying themselves.,  Mr. Chamberlain, Mr. Blair, sen., Mr.  Stuart and Mr. Hammond rendered  songs throughout the evening, which  were heartily encored, and helped to  make the evening one of the jolliest  ever spent in Abbotsford. Mr. Blair  assisted at the piano, and his selections  were highly appreciated.  ABBOTSFORD  EWTERTAfN LEAGUE  The next meeting of the Fraser Valley Development League will be held in  Abbotsford, at the .request of the representative of the Matsqui-Sumas  Board of Trade, Prof, Chas. Hill-Tout;  and Abbotsford board of trade will rise  to the occasion and show the League  also that some "day when the town  comes to its own, it will be one of the  largest industrial centres of the Fraser  Valley,' with its cheap power ,and its  excellent transportation  facilities.  The exact date of the meeting is not  yet knoAvn, but it will be held at an  early date, ��������� possibly about the middle  of the month, just in time to catch-the  luscious strawberries that grow around  Abbotsford.  Every citizen,' whether a member or  the board of trade or not. is of course  invited to attend the meeting and hear  what the aims and objects of the  league are. A good work in advertising and locating settlers in the Valley  is being carried-on, and is worthy the  suppor of every citizen who is interested in any way.  The League is doing a good .work in  its. quarters in the Progress Club  looms,��������� Hastings street and Richards  street, Vancouver. A number of intending ' sectlers-are "being directed- to  the -great possibilities of the Fraser  Valley. One -recently from New Zealand has purchased a place at Whbn-  nock for a residence, and intends - in  the near future to-purchase a good  sized farm. Another from India, a retired irrigation-engineer, owing to the  opportunities <placed before him of the  Fraser Valley, has, spent the past few  AT NEW WESTMINSTER  New .Westminster, June 2.���������A -remarkable tribute was-that'paid Monday evening by the people of "New  Westminster and the surrounding district to the Premier, Sir Richard McBride, on the celebration of the tenth  anniversary of the "establishment of,,  party Government within the Province  of British Columbia/" Thousands were  present in the Arena 'building to listen  to the leader'of the Government, and  the demonstration . was undoubtedly  the largest in point of attendance that  has greeted any public man west of  the Canadian Rockies. "  The general interest and enthusiasm  in the event was marked by the presence of great numbers of ladies and  even the school children seemed - inspired by .the- significance of the historic occasion and joined in heartijj  with the rest of the vast audience in  the. singing of the numerous patriotic  airs Avith which the programme ox  speeches was - interspersed.  In the" course of his: speech Sir Rich  ard McBride stated that it would not  be an expensive matter if-the Uniteo  States and the Canadian governments  would join in the project of continuing,  the Pacific Great Eastern railway from  the Peace River district to Alaska, and  he queried whether there could  be a  days looking over Maple Ridge,  Port   better subject for discussion between  Haney and-Langley, and- has .about de  cided to settle in Langley. . The farming and- fruit growing industry has  attracted these" gentlemen, arid, needless to. say, they are "greatly pleased  with the Fraser Valley, the place- of  choosing a home being a, hard-matter  for them. A number of others from  the Old Country and Australia are at  present out sizing up the possibilities,  and have so far expressed themselves  as delighted with what they have seen.  One lady from Australia stated that if  even she went no farther than the  coast she considered her money well  spent in her trip from -Australia to  Vancouver, os she was delighted with  whot'she saw of the big city. Others  from Australia and New Zealand have  the two. governments in the. year of  the celebration of the "one hundred  years of peace."   /l  In the evening the doors of the Arena opened at 7 o'clock and even at  that hour there were people waiting  to enter the building. The interior  was .handsomely decorated in red,  white and blue bunting relieved with  streamers and flags. A,large platform  occupied one end, its spaciousness being relieved with palms and- potted  flowers. As the meeting went on a  band provided music prior to the opening of the proceedings and also ac-  similarly expressed themselves as de- companied the soloists and the chor-  lighted with the climate and the op- useg>  portunities that oppealect to them on  every side.  The Fraser Valley Development  League~have done well to.establish an  office and exhibit in the Progress  Club Rooms,' as previously numbers  have come into British Columbia and  have not been told of'the banner Valley of the Province.  Some fine specimens of rye grown at  Aldergrove, Port Kells and Maple  i Ridge have been sent in to the exhibit  rooms. That grown at Aldergrove by  Mr. Anderson, cut May 23, height <'  feet 3 inches; that at Port Haney by  Mr. Sharpe, cut May 23, height 6 feet  3 inches; that grown by Mr. Martin of  Port Kells, cut June 2, height 6 feet  1% inches. None of this was grown  for exhibit purposes, but shows what  can be done with proper care and cultivation.. Bring in your specimens as  soon as possible, says the secretary,  Wilkie, and the people from all parts  of the world who visit the Progress  Club Rooms wih be enabled to see the  products of the Fraser Valley.  The secretary visited the Langley  council on Saturday last, and reports  that the council have reconsidered  their decision-of withdrawal from the  league, and are now-on,the list again.  An interesting exhibit from Ccquit-  lam. is the original of the model of the  first ocean-going ship built at Coquit-  iam.  It is hoped that Abbotsford and district will shortly have an exhibit there.  It is a good advertisement.  Mr.  Nels  Nelson,  president' of the  New ��������� Westminster Conservative Association, presided and there were with  him on- the platform in addition to the  guests of the evening, Hon. A.r E.

Our Shibboleth���������Neither for nor agin the Government.  Friday, June 6, 1913  Everybody is talking of the present  money stringency and the effect it has  on trade, but there is nevertheless a  hopeful trust that' "the worst is not  yet'to come.". It is a good time or the  ' year to have matters brace* up and  make a good showing for tho coining  fall.  He felt that few men know just how  stringent was the period through  which, the country had passed and was  passing.  Canada had by no means suffered  as much in this respect as other coun-  . tries, and he thought the tight money  - period would gradually disappear, and  perhaps more rapidly than was generally looked for, says Mr. White of the  Dominion house on Monday. While  Mayor Baxter gives out the warning  note that there are too many new people coining to Vancouver- at' the present time, but says that "tho hot  ���������weather will brighten up business in  Vancouver for those already established." The general impression  among the. larger business linns of  Vancouver,' including the local manager for R. G. Dun & Co., believes that  the hot weather will have the desired  effect of creating demands that will  make matters better.  In his trade forecast for this week,  Henny , Clews   hase   these   interesting  , things to say:  There are four very important un-  certainties, (1) the tariff question, (2)  ��������� the currency problem,   (3)  the monetary situation  and   (4)   the crop out:  ��������� lo'ok, and until these begin to clear  there is little chance for any substantial improvement in the stock market.  In addition to these uncertainties  there are several other problems also  of a restraining nature, such as the  pressure of new issues, the attitude of  the government towards the railroads,  the. Union and Southern Pacific dissolution plans and the continued warlike" disturbances in Southeastern  Europe:  . So far as the tariff is concerned, it  would seem as if this had been amply  discounted. The worst possible was  known several weeks ago, and the  chances now are that the extreme or  . most injurious cuts will be modified  in. the Senate, and that no serious  harm will be done to any important  industry. -The proportion of damage  would certainly be small compared  with the nation's aggregate industries,  ��������� and it must not be forgotten that  lower tariff rates will have compensating advantages in other directions.  As soon as the bill is passed there  will probably be a rush of orders,  both domestic and foreign, to fill the  gap in merchandise stocks caused by  the hesitation of the Past seven  months.  So far as the currency problem is  concerned, the outlook is fairly encouraging. The outlines of new legislation are believed to provide for a  central regional reserve, for an elastic  currency, for government representation in the board and for redis'counting  commercial paper as well as other  features. There is a fair chance of  such a bill being passed by the House  as  a party    measure.    Some    doubt  may 'not delay tho passage of a bill  until next winter. Mr. Wilson, however, is known to be anxious for  prompt action during this session of  Congress, if a satisfactory bill can be  enacted. The greatest danger is that  iOmc unsound ideas, such as government control of the central reserve  bank, government issue of notes or  guarantee, of deposits may be attempted by an influential minority,  'which are'infected with absurd financial theories not accepted by any  other civilized nation.  So far as the monetary situation is  concerned, tho outlook is more satisfactory,  though one of caution.    Tho  home' and   foreign   credit    situations  have not yet emerged from the condition of excessive strain brought on by  prolonged trade activity and the Balkan war.    Nevertheless,  the good effects  are- already  being  seen  of  the  policy of retrenchment which has been  persistently   followed   in-Europe   and  the United States for the past month  or six  weeks.  ' Reserves are already  beginning to rise at hoihe and abroad  as a result of, this policy..   In other  words, the curative process is quietly'  progressing,  but' the  outcome  is  not  yet fully  known.    It remains    to be  seen  if  the  liquidation  and retrenchment   recently  enforced-   will   expose  any'unexpectedly weak spots.    Moreover, it is known that our banks are  not yet- in  position  to  finance, large  crops' and  increased    trade    activity  combined next autumn.   The.pressure  of new capital applications has been  enormous the world over, and the comparative failure of recent'issues and  the    high   'returns    demanded    have  checked the demand for new capital.  New issues in this market during May  are expected to reach about $150,000,-  000, against about $180,000,000 a year  ago, and  a number of urgent  issues  have been delayed until easier conditions prevail in the money market. ���������  So far as the crop outlook is concerned, this is eminently satisfactory.  It is the one bright and sustaining  feature in a generally unsatisfactory  situation. Another good harvest will  do wonders toward general recuperation. There has been -abundant rain  in nearly all sections, of the country  this spring, and nearly all the crops  start well equipped to face drouth or  other vicissitudes during the remainder of the growing season. The harvest, however, is still about three  months distant, and it 'would be premature to bank too confidently upon  the outcome.  MISSION   CITY   SCOTS  NOW   FROWN   ON   AUTOS  Two and one-half miles'northwest of  Mission City, on the' Canadian side of  tne international boundary,' there is a  long, steep grade (hat has'gained considerable fame in that' particular locality because of its immunity from the  defiant chug chug- of the automobile.  In the thriving little "Canadian- town  there are "a number'of Scots who have  been amassing bankrolls from' motor  car agents - who essayed to climb the  hill.  They met their fate last week. -The  sportive Scots purchased about $800  worth of, experience and every time" an  automobile roars through tho. town  their minds are racked with recollections of how a slender young invader  with a little red buzz curt annexed  their savings. '     .   '  Bets Come Rapidly..  It all happened because of the enthusiasm and confidence placed in' his  car by. V. E. De Kamp,,\vho represents  the ftlctz car in Belli'ngham. While  visiting J. C. McDonald of Mission City,  who hail just' purchased a' Metz car,  Mr. De'Kamp was discussing the.hill-  climbing qualities of the present-day  automobiles. One of tho Scots took  exception to his belief's and announced  his willingness to back up his statements with ireal money. Arguments  quickened," money "en me faster and in  a few minutes $400 was., wagered that  the little Metz could not. fake the lop  of tho grade, which is about a mile  long.  A heavy rain had made the clay road  very slippery and traction was almost  impossible. De Kamp pleaded for a  postponement, but the Scots wanted  the cash badly and finally' persuaded  the Bellingham intruder to make the  attempt, lie made a part of the hill  when tho wheels began lo slip over  the slimy surface and would go no  further.  $400 More Goes Up.  Down the hill he backed, nettled, but  'none the loss confident that his car  could succeed. The Mission City bettors held a conference and offered him  another trial at the-hill providing $400  more was wagered. -The offer was accepted. Early the next morning Mr.  McDonald, who owned the car, purchased some tough rope, wound it  around the1 rear wheels and told the  Scots to gather, their money, for he  was going, to-ascend the grade.  Without taking a run at the' hill, he  started away' amid the' hearty guffaws  of the Scots." McDonald placed his machine in the third, speed and gaily it  ploughed Its way lip .the young mountain, unmindful of the clay. ' ,I.t -conquered the grade and netted its..owner  and his backers $800. ���������  To mention the-'-word Metz in Mission-City Scottish circles produces an  effect similar to that' when' the crimson bunting is waved in the eyes ot  a rampageous masculine bovine.  The above was taken from an American exchange and shows the beauty  of a press agent. The "Scots" was a  German, while the bet was about 30  cents. By the way, surely that is not  the little Metz car the customs officials at Abbotsford are looking for?  HOTELS  BEING   RENOVATED  [Prom the "Fraser Valley Record]  This week' will see the recently  started improvements at the Matsqui  Hotel about completed. - Mr. Macdonald, the new- proprietor, decided that  the lower floor was inadequate to the  wants of the hotel, and with that end  ���������in view is having the house remodelled. The dining room has been  moved back to the large room formerly  used as a pool room. This- new  change makes a very commodious  dining room, with a light and airy  kitchen in connection. . The former  dining room has been transferred into  a spacious office and sitting room. The  new stairs are' also situated in this  room. The partitions "between the bar  room and the former sitting room have  been  removed,   and   this   large   room  will now be used as the bar and liquor  A plank has been placed in the Libe-. store rooms.  ral platform, known as woman suffrage. No doubt the Liberals, having  read the beautiful and statesmanliko  address of Premier McBride last winter when the lady delegates visited  Victoria, are desirous of getting the  ladies on their side in order to win  a place in the House. If the women  of. British Columbia desire greater  responsibility than they have, why, by  all means let them have a vote.

The bar  room has been enlarged, and the walls  artistically decorated with beaver  board, and. new bar fixtures are expected daily.

By the use of lenses and mirrors, the  glare of the circle of light which the  lamp  throws "is  bright enough to be  clearly seen in daylight against so dark  an object as   a    light-colored suit ot  clothes.   Now the centre of the circle  of light marked by a black spot, by arrangement of the lenses, is exactly the  spot where the bullet will strike. Thus,  all one has to do is to place the black  centre of  the  blazing circle  of light  over the heart of an adversary and pull  the  trigger.   At night    the    light  is  shockingly strong.   Experiments with  the   new   weapon   show   that   perfect  greenhorns who have never used a revolver  in   their  lives,   can  shoot  far  more accurately than experts using an  ordinary pistol.    Up to sixty yards one  cannot miss a small bull's eye, day or  night, while extremely accurate shooting is possible up,to a hundred yards.  The Liberal Convention, which  closed its sessions at Revelstoke, elected Mr. H. C. Urewster as leader of the  party, in British Columbia. Premier  Borden was condemned in a resolution  for favoring Japan in the question of  immigration as opposed to the interests of this province.', ��������� "  The Provincial Government was also  censured for,being too liberal in their  grants to the Canadian Northern Railway. Other things which the convention went on record as opposing were  tho Government's policy with respect  to Indian lands, segregation of vice,!  land ' registry .system, and the high  rates of interest charged by banks  through subsidiary' trust companies.  Mr. F. C. Wade, K. C.', introduced a  resolution condemning the ��������� Government management of the British Columbia University, but the motion was  rejected. ,--'       - ... ;  , ,     "The Leadership  Mr. S. S.'Taylor, K. C, introduced a  resolution that a leader be chosen by  the convention for the Liberal party in  British Columbia.  ��������� .  Mr. Maxwell Smith suggested that  the president of this association be  the recognized leader of the party in  British Columbia. This and other  plans" were debated for an hour, and  the meeting then adjourned until the  evening^ when the question of leadership was taken up with even greater  vehemence.  Mr. Oliver moved a further amendment, which was rejected.;  Mr. JohnOliyer, in the course of a'  speech, claimed the leadership as  vested in himself,' but stated, that he  now resigned the position. He favored  Mr. Maxwell'Smith's stand on the matter, and concluded:  "Surely to goodness, in the brains ot  ���������the candidates there will "be enough'  sense to enable them to decide whether  they want a leader before or after an  election."  ��������� The, following,for the ensuing year  were elected by acclamation: Sir Wilfrid Laurier, honorary president; M. A.  -Macdonald; president;. Ralph" Smith,  first vice-president; Dr. J. H. King,  second vice-president; A. M. Pound,  treasurer; C. C. Campbell, secretary.  Women's Suffrage -  . At the early afternoon sitting a delegation of the Political Equality,League,  headed by Mrs. Sturdy, president of the  local branch, by invitation of the convention, was received and introduced  by Mrs. J. C. Kemp, president of the  Provincial Equality League.  Mrs. Sturdy and Mrs. Cpursier each  read papers appreciative of the action  of the convention in adopting the suffrage plank. The delegation consisted  of about a dozen Revelstoke ladies.  , Mrs. Kemp thanked the convention  for its action, and dealt with various  disabilities under which women and  children labor. She said that the  league had simply wasted its time in  petitioning the present Government.  After .a great deal of effort in securing  the signatures of 20,000 to a petition,  it had been .thrown into the waste  paper basket, unwept, unhonored and  unsung, as one paper had put it.  Mrs. Kemp touched upon the inheritance,' infants' guardianship, divorces, deserted wives and other laws,  all of which she severely criticized.  Sandbagged   and   Robbed  Word was received in Mission City  Saturday that Mr. R. W. Randolf had  been  waylaid  and  robbed at  Lytton.  It  appears   Mr.  Randolf  was   on   his  way to Ashcroft and stepped off the  train at Lytton, when he was attacked  by thugs, struck on the head and rendered unconscious.   All his valuables  were   taken     from     him.   These   included about $30 in bills, a gold hunting watch and chain, one pair of gold  cuff links and his Gladstone hand bag,  containing  numerous   toilet    artic.les.  Up to the present no trace of the robbers has been found.  Mr. Randolf, who is well known in  Mission City and Abbotsford, returned  to Mission City on Monday.  Young ducklings appeared on .the  market this morning, and were the  centre cf attraction. Buyers eagerly  sought for the privilege cf securing the  early shipment, 30 to 35 cents per  pound being offered. The presence of  the new season's hatch affected the  price of the matured article.

An abundant supply of rhutarb featured'the floral and plant stalls, . a  good demand holding the price at the  prevailing figure of ten cents ��������� per.  bunch: Tomato and cabbage plants  were offered at 25 cents per dozen and  two dozen, for a quarter, respectively,  but the lateness of the season has  caused ,a falling off in the demand. ,  ���������A fine display of cut flowers, carnations-, stocks and gladiolus marked the  floral section.  Fish and meat 'prices remained unchanged.       , .  Ihe vegetable market remains in a  depressed condition, -very little trading  being effected.

Miss Percival of Jubilee gave a most  excellent  paper  on    Geography;    but  the greater part of the day was taken  up in discussing'the subject of Spelling through all the grades, and methods  of dealing with that subject.   It  was agreed that this was one' of the  important    subjects     of     the    public  school,     and    the   fact   that   a   "good  speller'' was a passport to the educational and business life of the province  necessitated  that  all    pupils     should  have  a  thorough - knowledge' of  this  subject before they left school.   The  experiences of all  the  teachers were  given, and the difficulties of the subject thoroughly gone into.  Inspector Pollock gave the teachers  the benefit of his wide and comprehensive experience on all 'educational  matters that came up for discussion.  The fact that the teachers spent the  Saturday discussing school- - matters  shows t the great interest that the  teachers of that municipality have in  their chosen work. - ���������  No bread, no matter  is too good for your  product is as nearly  be made.
