The meeting  was called to order by Mr. Yarwood who explained its object  which was to discuss the matters of dividing the district in  two and if some plan could be  devised to get the work going.  After considerable discussion  Mr. Fooks' came forward with  the information that he was in  communication with a firm who  would undertake the work if  they could get the dyking commissioners and Rice & Co.,. but  of the way and deal directly  with the ratepayers or government. Mr. Fooks further stated that this company was a responsible company and had the  capital and equipment for this  work. This matter was discussed from all standpoints and it  was decided not ,to take any'  further steps towards   dividing,  the district with the- present  plans-for a time at least in order to give the prospective company an opportunity -to deal  with commissioners or Rice .&  Co. as they are now in touch  with theni.

Our   Shibboleth-���������Neither  for  nor  agin'   the  Government  J. A. BATES, -       - Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JUNE 4, 1915.  One can hardly pick up*a daily paper now, or talk to a friend  but read or hear of some poor fellow who is strictly up against  it and cannot get a job. Many of them good honest men and  willing to do an honest day's work for a day's pay. Here is a  . sample: "My name is Malcolm Murray. I am a Scotchman. On  Tuesday, May 18, unable tp find work in Prince Rupert, I left  that city and went to Granby Bay on the steamship Prince  George hoping to find work at that place. Together with me on  board the boat were five Britishers and ten or twelve foreigners.  Upon our arrival we-were met at the gangplank by an official of  the mining 'company. This official inspected each arrival and  decided the right of each person to go ashore. * * * * Every  British subject was'refused entry ashore; And every foreigner  was permitted to pass unquestioned." And there is more to it.  The conclusion is that the foreigners were given a job, while the  white men were turned away.  This is only one instance of the way the companies of the  province, who are given all the privileges of the country, and  protection under its laws, if need'be���������Employ foreigners to  white British born. It may, be their privilege as they are supplying the capital, but the laws of this province should be so  constructed so that it would be impossible to hire foreigners in-  '-,- stead of white men,especially during a time like this of great financial stringency.  The companies who employ foreigners for work that can be  "���������; done by any person, are usually the ones to screech the loudest  against the conditions of the province; the ones, who want all  and give nothing, except a mere pittance of a wage in return for  the value received. That's why too they hire foreigners, such as  are here today and away tomorrow; and if they do happen to  make a few dollars send it possibly to some foreign country, ancl  . it never comes back. -    .  The labor problem of, this province is truly a great problem  but if each man would do his best to better the conditions, in. a  few years the province would become better; and eventually one  of the richest provinces in the dominion.  Right around here are men��������� , -white men, and some of  them with families, who would at the present time take some  of the jobs.that are held by foreigners, and more than that they  would spend all the money in the country, thus building it up  and making it a better place to live in and enjoy life in. ������ But  the Austrian, the Jap or some other foreigner has the job and  that is < all there is to it.  When these employers of unskilled labor talk about 'our boys  at the front', our boys did good work in France', our boys were*  able to capture a few guns, etc' does it sound consistent? Do you  feel that they are helping to replace stability in the-country in  the way of supporting those who on account of the war are deprived ;of the ordinary means of making a living honest if not  luxurious! The words 'our boys' cannot be true and earnest as  there are no 'Austrians or Japs, or other foreigners of that ilk  -fighting with the Allies'. :.    . ��������� ,  '���������' The actions of capitalists would truly sometimes make Socialists of us, for as the good lady said the world is all wrong.

TWO SIDES TO A STOIIY  The political crisis in London is a/war,crisis,,in a way, but  people who do not know the inside'of English politics might  easily be deceived by it. Politics ^is a game they play, over there  all the time, even when, they nre������end not to, and even -when they  play it a new way because the old one is unpopular.    I have  been  quite certain,   from the;.first,  knowing what  happened  during'the Crimean war, that the.opening hostilities sounded  the.doom of Asquith-^-Lloyd George government, the Liberal  government as it stood a year ago today.    The pact, the expense,  the incidence of war robbed the social progress programme of  that government of the possibility of fulfilment. It became an  rAsquith-Grey-Churchill government with strong backing from  the opposite party.    Lloyd George saved it again, before long,  but in an altogether new role.    The progress wing sank out of  sight and is now being engulfed;  it.disappears because there  is no work, of the kind that concerns them, for its members, nor  will be for a long, long time.    Does anyone think this reconstruction is the outcome of sudden crisis, brought on by the sinking of th'e Luistania and the use of the wrong kind of shells in  France?    Let him read an .article by Mr. A. G. Gardiner in the  Atlantic, written probably six weeks ago, or articles in London  Truth, printed over a month ago, and he will see that the powder train was then already laid, and that any match would set it  off   With the outbreak of war there was an attack on Lord Hal-  danc,   their one   on Mr. * Churchill,   then one- on Mr. Asquitn  and   then   again   back to Mr.    Churchill.       It was irregular  warfare, but not warfare.    The pendulum of which we hear so  much in English politics swings to the Liberals in times of social reform, to the Conservatives in time of war and foreign  difficulty.    That is why Mr. Bohar Law and his friends are able  to be quite candid, and not be misunderstood, when they say  that they are not merely willing to take office in a time of great  national difficulty, but that a cerain number of them, six or eight  or more must go if any go.    Mr. Asquith and Sir Edward Grey  cannot go out of the Cabinet;  circumstances will not permit  that.    But with Mr. Law and Lord Lansdowne and Mr. Balfour-  in that Cabinet, and Sir Edward Carson Attorney-General, Mr.  Asquith. while a member of the Cabinet and chairman of it, cannot any more be "master in his own house" the position Sir  Mackenzie Bowell rightly proclaimed to be vital to the office of  Prime Minister.  Not long ago a Canadian hardware  manufacturing firm solicited orders  from a wholesale jobber in .the United States for goods on which there  happened to be no import duty into  that country. The answer was very  prompt:  "Dear Sir;���������Replying to your favor of the' we beg.to say that we  cannot place any. orders with any  foreign houses at present even.at a  difference of ten or fifteen per cent  in favor of their goods. The sole and  simple reason is that we have to  keep our own factories busy on this  side of the line, and we consider it  .worth while to make a few sacrifices  for the sake of doing it."  The reply was kept by the Canadian manufacturer as an admirable  sample of American- loyalty to American institutions. It was respected  as the''kind of business co-operation  that has made the United States the  third exporting nation in the world.  And admiration for such a spirit and  business longsightedness can very  well help teach us a lesson that is  being brought home to us in these  days. ���������  Canada just now needs all the  business she can.get to keep her own  factorios busy. . Canadians are learning that in nearly every line there  ,are made .in ^Canada articles as good  and clieap: as' anything-imported, yes,  and frequently both better and cheaper. Before i purchasing the latter  they are taking steps first to ascerr  tain .if there .is not a Canadian article of at least equal value.  When next.you^go into a store to  purchase an article, find out whether  it is made in British Columbia. If so  buy it. But if not a British Columbia article, buy the Canadian brand.  If Canada does not produce it, the  Empire surely does. Then buy the  Empire product in preference to the  foreign.  1ATSQUI- SUMAS BOARD OF TRADE  President, Chas. Hill-Tout   Secretary, S. A.

In explanation of the excellent  meats always served at her table, a  hostess' said, "Why, I choose .a butcher that suits me, and, then stand  right by him."  A great many buyers for household  goods place a high value on the personal element in their shopping. That  is, they have learned from experience  that   itpays in the long run to choose  merchant for a sufficient length    of  this  and to become    personally acquainted with him.      In order to do  this, it is necessary, of course, to do  practically all the household buying  in that partiuular line from that one  merlhant for a sufficient length    of  time to try him under all conditions.  These  buyers   believe  that  when  a  merchant  became    acquainted     personally with a customer and knows  that he is getting the trade of that  family in his line, the very fact that  an order comes in from that customer means that it will receive personal  attention, that only the goods will be  sent,  that the  prices will ber made  right and that when any littlq error  creeps in the home morcliant will be  only too pleased to make the matter  right.    In the course of a year's buying for a household there are, many  astute buyers  who believe that the  insurance which they thus obtain   is  worth a great deal more than ;a few  odd cents saved here and there    by  trading with strangers or by running  about from store to store, or dealing  with the departmental stores wfho do  not care what kind of goods they do  place in your hands so long as they  get the money.

C.  ^r  Seventy-five , thousand dollars  which the consumer did not pay, and  which the producer did not receive,  disappeared in the marketing of British Columbia fruits in Calgary alone  last year, says the Calgary Albertan.  The figures are those of F. J. Fee  manager of the Vernon Fruit Company, a recognized' authority on the  subject of fruit, with an experience  to back him up that extends from  the fruit fields of Florida and the  fruit docks of Baltimore to Calgary.  And the only real remedy, compared with which such matters as getting an express rate reduction on berries, and organizations of growers,  and the creation, of a patriotic "Made  in-Ca'nada" sentiment among the consumers, are,as but playing with the  evil, is the 'establishment of a wholesale  fruit  market' in   Calgary.  ."That," said Mr. Fee. in the course  of an interview, with the Morning  Albertan yesterday, "will solve , the  difficulty I am certain. Sentiment is  all right in its place���������it doesn't.^ cut  so very much ice unless it coincides  with the saving of cents���������working  therailway company, for a slight reduction in express rates on berries is  alright to^a certain extent, but in niy  mind it will not do anything to get  at the root of the situation: organizing the growers will cut" the expense slightly at the othe'r end, but  will not'solve the problem at the end/  The only thing that will' help the  British Columbiajruit to crowd out  the southern States .products-from  the tables of Calgary is a wholesale  market right in this city.  "I say that.with reason, because I  know how it works. I have seen it.  work in many another fruit district.  It means that all. unnecessary cost  of distributing the fruit, where most  of the waste occurs now, will be cut  to such an extent as to allow the fruit  to compete with foreign fruit."  Mr. Fee was optimistic beyond  measure'as to the impetus that such  a market, located at such a strategic  point as Calgary would give to the B  C. fruit industry: - >  '-��������� "And it will not'cost the city a red  cent" he declared:;7.' ;"A11 that is necessary for a wholesale market is  some spare space near trackage. Surely the railroad could find that."  As a matter of fact, Mr. Fee took  up   this   matter  with   the   Canadian  Pacific officials two years ago.  He found them sympathetic.  "Find  your  demand .for  it"  they  said.,"You are only one."  Nothing .therefore has come of it |  yet  PUBLIC ROTICE-  Notice is hereby given that  I will not he responsible for  any debts contracted by my son  Clarence Nelson.  Jas. H. H. Nelson, Barriere B. C.  Corporation of the District of Sumas  Huntingdon, B. C.  COURT OF REVISION,  1915  (. He is, however, certain that if the  demand is there, it would not take  much to move the railroad to find the  site... ���������'���������  The wholesale market, he says,  too would not hurt the existing' jobbers. Instead of duplicating routes  and sending out salesmen to the customers'now, the customer would find  liis way down to the' wholesale market every morning, purchase his supply of. fruit, and go back to business  There would not' be the wastage that  comes through, the present practice  of receiving a car at Galgary, sending  it away and having a couple of hundred pounds left in the jobber's  hands., The consumer, in the natural  course of-events, has to pay for that  200 pounds that was wasted, an'd the  cost was relatively higher, the. grow-  er getting no advantage. ��������� It did, how  ever, give a decided advantage to the  foreign market.    ���������   J  Mr. Fee, also says, that the market  would prove avaluable asset to the  city commercially. '    ���������  "It would make this the marketing centre for the fruit growers. The  country Jjuyers would purchase direct from the market, as would the  city customers, and' selecting' here,  would have their own produce shipped out. It would bring the growers  and', the country dealers into town  more, and would help both the whole  :sale anT retail business in the city.  "I regard that wholesalejnarket as  the solution of *\the . whole problem  that has been bothering this country  for years. ,-The British Columbia  trade in Calgary and the prairie provinces will not have to be built up  | on sentiment. Competition from tho  Southern States will have to be met.  It can only be met. by the wholesale  market .which will stimulaate the industry which will lead to the organization of-the growers.  "The -growers certainly need  this  market in the  worst way.    For instance, -just  now  there  are  enough  strawberries comftig in from B. C. to  satisfy the Calgary demand-and yet  there  are  50,000  good  dollars    for  strawberries from Alberta soil down  to the south that might -just as well  travel  west.    The American berries  being sold ju-st now are from Louis-  ana.    Not a Calgary dollar that goes  down there ever returns.    The "only  people who benefit are' ar.few "jobbers  the railway company and the negro  laborers in the south.  .   "B.. C. needs Alberta money    because the fields there are mostly in  the hands .of small holders -depending  upon their patches    for    sustenance.  Some people are cultivating as low as  a quarter of an acre.    Many widows  are attempting to extract    a    living  from small patches    for' themselves  and. families and the price, as may  beumagined,  means much to them.  One   man  of   80   who. is  running  a  small patch, wrote pleading for a few  dollars on account of his fruit, as he  han't  enough   left  to   buy   postage  stamps to notify us of the shipment."  i'erent shape, ours being broader and  not so deep giving a broader top  ���������which when slightly ��������� heaped may  make weigh about a pound more, but  in actual capacity they are exactly  the same. Yet ybu charge British  Columbia actual weight while you  take a weight of 3 % under on American, taking commodity rate of 300  per hundred from Minneapolis to  Calgary.  Giving this underweight of 3 % liis  means 9 % ������ a crate under charge on  American while our growers- mustc  pay full weight. In every crate ' of  American' coming into Calgary in  competition with British Columbia  you are discriminating in favor of the  American berries 9 % 4 a crate, a car  of one thousand crates $93.75. To  date six.cars have come into Calgary  under charged, that amounts to a  total under charge of $5G2.50. Add to  this what this under billing .would  be to Winnipeg, Brandon, Regina,  Moose Jaw and Saskatchewan and we  get some idea of the. amount you are  favoring American berry growers' a-  gainst British Columbia berry grow- ,  ers.  When these American berries  reach, Calgary you put a billing  weight for local shipment of 20 lbs ,r  against them. We contend you have  no right to accept American under  billing-of these berries and we most  emphatically-.protest against this unjust discrimination in favor of American berry growers: Either American berries should ,take full weight  when reaching Canadian transportation or B. C. should take the same  weight as Amorican.  A copy of this letter is being sent  to  Mr.  W. R.  Winslow,  secreary of  the.B. C. Fruit Growers'Association  Yours truly,  S. J: FEE.
