Editor and Proprietor  Canada is in a different position  than either the United States or Grent  Britain. In* both of the hitter countries the enormous debt incurred during the war has been considerably  reduced. In Canada, on the othut'  hand, the debt created by the war,  instead of - being reduced in th)  years since the Armistice, has gone  on  steadily  increasing.  The men responsible for the administration of Canada's patiomil  finance have been confronted with  difficulty in balancing their -Minnal  budgets. Sir Henry Drayton, finance  ministelr in the Moighen Government  made that government unpopular  with the people because Ii-j devised  scheme to increase the national revenue by taxation. Government'-'only  exist by the will of the people, anc;  it always has to be recognized thai  there is a limit ��������� which any p.?ipli"  will stand iai'the matter of taxation.  The people willed at the last election  that the Meighen government should  be replaced by a, Liberal government.  It was time for a change. The change  has come, it has made tax reductions but these reductions have been  offset by increased taxation in other  ways. Mr'. Fielding, the finance min-  ��������� ister in the King administration  found when his party' came to make  up the budget that the money was  really needed, and he has increased  the taxation on liquors, both intoxicating and known as soft drinks, on the  higher priced cigars and cigarettes,  on automobiles, on bank cheques,  telegrams and cablegrams, on the  note circulation" of the banks,' and  through an increased sales tax.' IL>  says he has hit the people best' abhi  to pay it. Maybe- he" has and maybe,  he has not. All these cannot however  be said to be luxuries. True,, some  arc, but the monsteir hits the man  who-does the business of the country  in a small way... As for instance the  sales tax, hits all down the row to  the consumer, in which is included  the man who< depends on small  capital invested, and the working  men and women of our country.  Some one-has to pay this sales.ta^'  and as all buy all rich and poor alike  '���������pay the tax.;'  Larger revenue, in this increase  may be secured, yet irreparable damage to the business interest of the  country is being done,- and in the  final analysis of Canada's business,  by the change of governments and  finance minister, a worse and more  difficult position is being created  than under the Meighen administrt  tion.  The new customs changes include:-  the removal on certain products  some of these are farm products. Th;  anti-dumping clause^ has been disallowed and American fruit will com  pete throughout Canada with Canadian fruit. There are a number qi  very successful fruit districts in Can  ada. British Columbia is one o;  them. It seems entirely unfair thai  our fruit, which is one of the largest  industries of B. C, should have to  compete in our own home markets  in the coast cities and on the prairies  with a. foreign product. And there is  no reciprocity in this matter, for tin  moment Canadian berries cross tht  line a duty is imposed on them. Tai:n  the fruit industry out of Britisi  Columbia and it would seriously interfere with the business and development of the province.  The main-object of the new budger  iowever is to increase the revenue as  to keep on adding additional millions to the national debt ,each year  would be to commit national suicide  as it would not be many years befort,  an, ever-mounting debt would eat up  the entire revenue in interest charges  alone.  Another matter that strikes hornp'  forcibly to the fruit grower is thai,  his taxes have not been decreased al  though his fruit does enter into competition. He, like the finance minister who devised the scheme of free  fruit, since his fruit has deteriorated  in the home market and upon the  prairies, must devise new methods  to enable him to carry on���������the drastic competition has become a mobster which points the way to deficits  and probably bankruptcy, and the  community in which he has done  business as a fruit grower also suffers..  Thus we say a very difficult position has been created to the growing  fruit industry of this province, whik*  the prairie grain-growing provinces  where the fruit is marketed the decided advantage of cheaper fruit is  given. Ye gods, give us back the  anti-dumping clause and let the fruit  belts of Canada prosper���������-at least  give the fruit growers an equal advantage with the grain growers.  b������.'a representation from the party of  the second part. After .discussions  winch were orations playing upon tho;  one theme, Mosquito est' delenda, ic'  was resolved that New Jersey would,  resume war upon the enemy.  Plans were not made public but  they will doubtless have to do with  the draining or oiling the', swamps,  for if is on record that the mosquit;.  cannot support existence where the  dry laws are enforced.  Manitoba may not read the nios-  ���������quito as a malaria carrier, but they  do accord him���������or should it, he  jlor���������all the respect earned by an-accomplished evenings are shattered by  the war songs of the oncoming  speck and the only way to purchase  immumity is to drown the scents of  summer in the enveloping smoke '������t'  thos mudge.

VALUE OF CHEESE AS A FOOD  cheese   "has  in    Britain  The consumption of  three times more capita  than in Canada.  A companion pamphlet to Misa  Helen G. Campbell's "Why and How  to Use Milk' has been published by  the Dominion Department of Agrl;  culture, Ottawa. This pamphlet ift  'Why and How to Use Cheese." ' Be:  sides giving a history of cheese making and of the different kinds oi  cheese���������of which it will surprise  most people to hear there are some  250���������upwards of 3 dozen methods  are described in which cheese can  be used to make savory and nutritious dishes.  t-All cheese making in Canada was  carried on as a farming industry until 1864, when the first factory  came into existence in Oxford county.,  Ontario. In the following year a  factory was established iu -Missisquoi  county, Quebec. The progress of factory establishment was so rapid that  in a few years the system was generally adopted, and farm-made cheese  became a rarity. While every one  ���������of the.nine .provinces has its cheese  factories, about 97 percent" of the  production has to be credited to On  tario and Quebec. Incidentally, it  might be mentioned that the total  value or' the cheese made in this  country runs up to between thirty-  five and forty million dollars per  annum, and the quantity totals up to  around a hundred and fifty million,  pounds, sometimes over and somt.'  times under. The variation ih production is considerable, as will be understood when it is stated that in  1914 it was 169,478,340 lbs. and  in 1920 nearly twenty million  pounds less.  In Canadian factories the manufacture of cheese is mostly confined  to what is known as Cheddar, bu'���������  genuine Stilton is tuned out on the  Dominion Experimental Farm at Agassis, B. C, and the Trappist monks  at the Oka Agricultural Institute in  Quebec make what is known as  Oko cheese. Another form of cheese  made in many households of this  country is Cottage Cheese,. which" la  made from soiir skim-milk without  the aid of rennet. For cream cheese  there is also a demand of some dimen  sion. Miss Campbell dwells upon  the advantages of cheese in the diet,  tells how it can best be kept, and sug  gests that Canadians would be well  advised to eat more of it than they  do. This suggestion gains force  from the fact that the consumption  of cheese in Britain is about four  times per capita more than, it is in  this country.���������Dominion Department  of Agriculture.  CHTNA IS NOT OVERCROWDED  OTTAWA, June 10.~"We value  the friendship and good will of our  friends abroad too.,highly to risk losing it by permitting a' few thousar. i  Chnese laborers to emigrate from  China if it will result. in discord "  Dr. Sao-Ke Alfred Sze, Chinese minister to Washington, -informed- *���������  brilliant gathering of parliamentary  representativcr, and diplomats heru  last night at an offical dinner tendered Dr. Sze by the Canadian government .in the Speaker's apartment.  "The impression that has existed  in the past- that China' is over-populated," said Dr. Sze,-' "and suffers  from economic pressure, is not correct. Tho geographical ��������� area ' of  China is about one-sixth larger than  the United States. Her population is  concentrated along the coastal pro-1"  inces, along the irivers and the natural ways of communication: The  great rich West is very, thinly populated. If, therefore, China is enabled to build her railways, she will  be able to provide full employment  for her natives, and when she commences to develop her mining ��������� and  manufacturing industries, she will  require more labor than China can  provide."

A   SHAMELESS   EXHIBITION  THE MOSQUITO MUST GO  - The Mosquito Extermination  Society has been holding a meeting  in Atlantic City. With discretion  Won from the years, although in a  spirit not in accord with that of the  modern conference, the meeting was  called at a season when   there could  A curious and disheartening cynicism is shown by the Liberal press of  Canada from top to bottom headed by  the Toronto Globe, on the subject of  the tariff and Mr. Fielding's performance in the budget speech with  regard to the tariff, says the Ottawa  Journal. There is a chorus of applause for Mr. Fielding, and a chorus of applause for what is characterized in effect as his masterly way of  handling the tariff. There is a smug  pretence that material reductions  have been made. There is a complete absence of any apology for the.  utter disregard of tha Liberal platform of two years previously when  the party was in opposition. Curious  this in its unanimity, and disheartenr  ing in its regard of honesty in politics. It is almost impossible' to  conceive of a political party in; England, for instance, pledging itselt  solemnity to a certain course of political action, going before the people  for their votes on that platform, attaining power, and immediately perpetrating the most gross dishonesty  with  regard to  that platform.  q.���������Would you be kind enough to  explain spring and neap tides am1  greatly oblige?���������An interested Reader. ���������'  . A.���������Tides���������the  ' alternative    rise  and fall of the water in the ocean-  are due to the-attraction of the sun  and moon.'   When the water rises to  the highest point    it is    capable    of  reaching on any particular day it is  called high tide; when it sinks to the  lowest possible ebb, Ioav tide is reach-,  ed.    High tides follow each other at  intervals of twelve hours twenty-five  minutes: low tides.succeed each other', at the same interval,    the    most  potent cause in producing    the tide3  is the action of the moon.    It   is obvious that by the laws,;.of gravitation  the moon must attract the   water cf  the ocean on the. particular   side or.  whicli.it is itself at    tlie time, and if  the earth were immovably fixed, ana  there were no sun, this would be all.  But the earth is not fixed, and in addition to drawing the    water to    it  from the earth on one   side,   of the  globe, the moon draws the globe itself "away from the    water   on    tlv.  other side.    The sun also exerts    a*  attraction, but owing    to ' its    ehor  mous distance it is feebler than thai  of the moon.    When    the    sun - ano  moon exert their influence in on d'  rection it is the highest tide, caller"  a spring tide;  when they counteract  each othelr's attraction    it    is    nea*  tide. ���������   Though to an observer on th -  land the water seems������simply to alter  tiately rise and fall, yet   what reall;  takes place on the ocean at large i'  that the moon arises a wave,    whicl  follows her movement, thusproduc  ing high water successively at differ'.  ijnt places as the   earth   turns upoj  its axis.   If the earth did not revolve"  tides would only occur   every . fou-.*  teen*days.    The    energy, producinf.  tides is thus mainly that of the eartl?  not of the moon; the store of earthlj.  energy is therefore   reduced by   the  tides, which act as a brake or dra?  upon the revolving globe, .while the  energy  of  the  moon , is    increased  by them.    The effect is to retard- tin  rotation of the earth and cause the  moon" slowly to increase her distance  from the earth.  STUART MOTORS  Chevrolet and Nash Agents.  Mission City, B.

G.- Cooto, Progressive -member for MacLeod", asked ;the  ministers of railways whether Hon.  Mr. -MotherAvell had- taken an*' steps  looking to the removal of Hon. F. B.  Carvell from the post of chief of the  raihvay board.' Mr. Coote said that  Hon. George Langley had appeared  before a committee of the house and  stated that Mr. Motherwell had matfe  an election promise to pin ceo a resolution oii the'order paper, calling for  the removal ,of Mr. Carvell.  Premier  Replies  Mr. MotherAvell, who Avas in the  chamber, said that he ,had a statement of the matter in his desk and  began to search for it Avhen the Premier arose1 and stated that Mr. MotherAvell' had made representations on  the matter to ' the .goverment and  that .they were receiving consideration.  Mr. Coote went on to ' say that  there was every strong sentiment  in the West in favor of the removal  of Mr. Cajrvell and there appeared to  be good reason for this sentiment.  Mr. Soote declared that the Western people were dissatisfied Avith  the railway, commission as it Avas  jonstituted. The" minister of agriculture had made a promise and should  implement it.

The  Railway  act    provided  the constitutional method. Mr. Carvel could be impeached through an  address of the Senate and House of  Commons. An explanation was due  the House from the minister of agriculture for his rash statement." If;  the minister was not prepared to  make a charge, he should, explain.'  Mr. Motheryell,. being - further  pressed for an explanation, said that  he had made his statement regard?  ing Mr. Carvell in Ms capacity as a  private ictizent. -Hewas now-a cabinet minister and the. position carried  responsibilities.

GENERAL ELKCJTON  A       NECESSITY  . , Everyone /realizes that the present  intolerable position' '" of MacKenzie  King and his followers cannot contin  ue, except at expense to t the/ Canadian people and at Moss of political  prestige to the Liberal Party.  One day Parliament is maintained  by a Torry vote and' the next day by  a Progressive vote, though, the actions of both these'parties have no  relation to their, feeling; could'either  hope to improve their position by a.t  general election their - present support of Govorriment/t-could be with  drawn. '���������      ��������� ���������'��������� ' \<  This, then, puts the matter of calling a general election up to the Liberal Party, not so much for the political, strength to be gained" a's'ior  the fact that the stability, and good  government of Canada demands unquestioned   authority   at   Ottawa...  The mishandling of affailrs by the  late government so" upset the country that the creation of an agrarian  party became, lor certain* parts' .of  Canada a matter "o'f necessity-,-arid  self-defence. With a Liberal Government-in office,-this necessity no  longer exists:-- Many- who voted otherwise Avould today support' Liberal  candidates, if only for the purpose of  assuring an early, return of political  confidence   and "prosperity.  On succeeding to power, the first  duty of , ex-Premier Meighen -was  to have scrapped, the Borden' collection of antiques, selected some new  ministers and gone to the country;  the results of such action, both , for  his party and ��������� for the people of  Canada, would have been different to  Avhat happened. Premier Meighen  was in control, but his authority Avas  questioned; therefore every day he  remained in-that position, dissipated  his strength, until finally he " was  forced to go to the country.  Today a similiar situation , faces  Mackenzie King's Government. .The  country has shown a desire to bo  governed by the principles of Liberalism. Mackenzie .King is Premier,  but. his authority to apply^ thos3  principles is questioned, therefore  every day he remains in that position not'only injures the commercial  stability of the country, but injures  the Liberal Party.-' -Praise and,appeals from office-seekers should not  be .allowed to. delude, tlie -Premier  and his Cabinet as to their strength.  A government holding office by  sufferance of opposition groups cannot deal Avith the problems today  facing this country'. It is not good  enough;  The issue is there; the Liberal  Party has only to prove they iia*. e  the courage to meet the challenge;-  the Canadian people will* do tfcs  rest.���������Sun. ,      > .  RUMORS OF AN ELECTION  IN     SEPTEMBER  Avay out of present difficulties. They  claim that the government would  come back with a safe working" majority over both -opposition p.iriic!*.  They point to Ontario as being again  the chief battleground 'in t he event  of an election and believe they would  capture seats in that province both '  from Progressives and Conservatives. On the other hand, adissol-  tion of Parliament at the present  juncture finds no general support  among the members. (   .  Liberals as a Avhole are not desirous, of the dissolution after only one  sion.    Progressives    and    Conservatives also do not like tlie idea,    al- ���������  thugh there is considerable comment  on the statement attributed to R. II.'  Haibert,   Progressive,   North'  Ontario, at the Russell County picnic    on.  Saturday,  that    Progressives  intend  to force the government    to change  the budget "even if it takes an election to do it."  Anything May Happen  Progressives generally, ' however",  would prefer to defer another appeal  to the people at any rate till after  the redistribution bill is brought  down next session and the western  provinces secure a Avider representation in the House. The present situation is admitted on all sides to be  crucial. Old parliamentary hands  dismiss it Avith- the , comment that  anything 'may happen.-  OTTAWA, June 12.���������Rumors of  a general election, in September as  an outcome of the present political  situation are. current today. But although the possibility is widely, discussed,, the rumor . bear no '.official  authority. There seems, to be little  doubt that Conservatives as a bodj  and the Progressives���������with the possible exception of three or . four���������  will vote against the government on  the main motion.

Estimated Cost  Of Damages  The following report was tabled at  the Sumas" council meeting on Saturday last and explains itself. The  committee interviewed the farmers  themselves.    It reads:  At a meeting held in the Municipal hair at Sumas on May 27th a  committee was appointed to inquire  into the estimated damages accruing to the farmers of Sumas Prairie  should the waters of the Fraser and  other streams reach , the 1921 level  Your committee has spent a great  deal of time on this matter and interviewed practically all t'.ie farmers .on the prairie, and while the report submitted is not as full as your  committee would like, it is ��������� the best  .that can- be done in the short time  given them. Your committee do  not wish to go on record ih any way  as criticising the government or any  government officials as we feel r.hey  are acting in the best intersts of the  people, but we do wish to go on  record in contradicting'the false reports in the Vancouver and New  Westminster papejrs as to the question of the damage on Sumas Prairie.  The report in the Vancouver, and  New Westminster papers stated that  the total damages on Sumas -would  not exceed $800. You who have-experience know this statement to be  absurd." Our estimate-of the damage  that will be done on Sumas Prairie  this year, if the flood reaches the  level of last year is actual loss to  the farmers $33,843 and we consider this a very conservative estimate.  ���������If the farmers had been able to take  off their crops" this year they would  have made," in our opinion, a profit  of $66,681 and while we are, not  counting this as actual loss it should  be borne in mind.  We are enclosing a detailed, statement of the whole prairie's-operation  but we think it advisable that this  should be kept on the council's files  for reference and not made public.  In compiling this" report we have  estimated the loss-'from the prairie  hay crop at away below its market  value". 'We might add in closing  that,any member of the committee  will be glad to answer any question  raised.  SCHOOL  SPORTS  HELD  AT MATSQUI  Keep. June 30th open for Strawberry Military Whist Drive in Masonic Hall.  THE   FREIGHT   RATE   QUESTION  The views of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association on the freight  rate question are stated in the following memorandum:  "How to lower the costs of railway  transpcirtation is the most important  ..transportation question before the  people of Canada to-day.  "Without going into history, the  present situation- is that fireight  rates have reached such a height  that the farmers, especially in Western Canada, is suffering severely,  and the manufacturer and other  shippers find that the sale of their  '���������goods is restricted because people  cannot afford to pay the freight..  Whilt the prices of farm products,  lumber, minerals, manufactured  goods and merchandise have been  greatly,reduced during the past two  years, freight rates were greatly increased in. 1920, and since that time  have experienced only a slight reduction. We think that freight rates  should come down with other prices  The ���������*���������."-*.:1 ways should face conditions  and reduce their operating costs  just at manufacturers, farniern and  others have reduced their operating  costs.  We do not care to advise on  ways and means, but we believe that  the conditions of the country's trade  demands that there be an immediate  general and substantial reduction of  freight rates to approximately the  rates which were in effect before the  40 per cent, increase in 1920. Moreover, we believe that, as the farmer  is the primary producer, he should  be given special encouragement, and  therefore, that the freight rates <. n  grain and grain products established  by. the Crow's Nest Pass Agreemtnt  shall be restored.  When the slump came the prices  of farm products and  manufactured  Believing that a sound body  helps to make a sound mind,  the schools of Matsqui Prairie  organized a Sports Day which  Was held in, the grounds of  Matsqui School on the afternoon of June 2nd. The schools  taking part were Ridgedale,  Matsqui, Glenmore and Clayburn.  Despite the heat large numbers of children were present,  also many parents and friends,  who came to cheer the ath-  eletes in their efforts. They  were not disappointed. Every,  one of the 47 eventjs was entered into very enthusiastically,  and a high standard was reached though some of the races  showed the need of more practice. . ' Those gaining first,  second or third places received  a blue, red or white ribbon, besides winning points for their  school. Matsqui School won  the prize of a fine picture of.  King George., for gaining the  most points. The schools next  in order were Ridgedale and  Glenmore,  Thanks to the men who acted as officials, Mr. McCiilloch,  starter: Messrs. Rottluff, Lancaster and Norman, judges,, the  events were run off with clock-  like precision.  Many tired be-ribbonned but  happy, children bore witness of  the success their first Sports  Day had been. It is to be hoped  it will become an annual event-  It is still more to be hoped that  a general Sports Day for all the  schools in. the Municipality  should be organized, and that  the School Board should see  their way to presenting .a  shield or cup to the school,  that carries off the honours..    .  ONCE ON HER KNEE;  ROSSES HER NOW!  She used to dandle him on her  knee. Now he "bosses" her in photoplay production!  Such is the situation concerning  Carrit Clark Ward, character  actress in "Sham," Ethel Clayton's  new Paramount picture which comes  to the Abbotsford Theatre Saturday  June 24th, and Thomas Heffron,  who directed the production under  the supervision of Elmer Harris the  author.  "Yes," says the comedienne who.  plays an amusing role in the offering. "I used to rock 'Tommy' to  sleep���������and never did I think that one  day he would tell me to do 'this arid  that' on the stage of a motion picture  studio."  Mrs. Ward and -Director Heffrpi.  were both born in Virginia City, Nevada, during the early mining camp  days and both became players. Mrs.  Ward first supported Madame Mod-  jeska, then played Irish comedy in  every large city of the country. Heffron was formerly stage director for  Cohan and Harris, A. H. Woods and  Mrs.   Fisko.  "Sham" is an adaptation of tho  lOlnic-!- Harris and Geraldine Bonne?-  stage succtss. telling a clever aiid  amusing story of a "gentle grafter'  who most conveniently "forgets" to  .pay, her bills. An excellent company  support the star.  goods were not kept, up by any artificial means. They had to be sold  for what the.market offered. Freight  rates, on the other hand, werei not  only increased after the slump had  commenced, but have been maintained at almost the same level all  through "it. Every other cost of production has been cut to the bonis.  High freight is the remaining obstacle. If the public want to buy  goods at lower prices freight rateu  must come doAvn.      . '.

The Bank of Hamilton has just  issued a bill of a denomination never  before known in either this country  or the United States���������a $25 bill.  "It is a very ornamental document," said one teller, "and I can  see where it will come in very handy  in making large change, but our bills  are all made on the assumption that;  you skip from $20 to".$50.' I don't  know where to put them away. They  are hard to count also, because they  break the sequence of tens."  A report was received that a young  man sent one to his ;jnother in tlie  United States, and her bank refused to accept it, as the cashier refused to believe that there was any such  denomination of bills in existence.
