MOSQUITOES ON DISPLAY  Mr. H. Alanson has a quart glass  of water on exhibition in his window.  Now the water out of Sumas .lake ordinarily is no different than the water out of any other body of water of  the same size, but at the present time  the water is quite interesting and  shows what the community will be up  against in the course of a few days.  The water is full of the makings of  a good many bites for the boys and  girls, the grown up men and women  and the faithful animals on the farm.  Here is a question in arithmetic if  there are as many "wrigglers" in a  quart of water how much blood will  be sucked from us between now and  August, and what will be .the effect  on farmer's pockets when he comes  to count up his receipts from the  milk bill. Tt sure looks like the be-  gining of the mosquito pest, with accent on the pest  Business is reported good  botsford.  at    Ab  RUNNING NEWSPAPER IS A SNAP  .James Gibson, formerly municipal: the office boy.  It is ujst as easy for a two-year old  boy to edit a newspaper as it is for a  pompous, bewiskered man of forty-  five. It doesn't require any special  talent aside from knowing how to  spell Timbuct.oo and then set the  stuff upside clown, collecting .hills  and exchanging subscriptions for  laundry. One nice tiling about running a newspaper is that in event  the genius who aspires to undertake  the job can't do it first shot out of  the box, there are generally enough  who think they can do it to advise  him how it should be done. Here is  the way L. L. LeBram, writing in  Successful Farming, of the trials of  the office boy, sizes up the situation:  Deer folks: Now I know why editors go mad. I been trying to run  this paper while the editor is on his  vakashun. For three days and nites  I ben reading questions and trying to  answer them, and if i don't quit I'll  be going around talking to myself.  I'm going to answer a, few more and  then go to the ball game.���������Jimmie,  clerk of Matsqui, is now working in  a hospital in England��������� doing His bit.

A letter had been received form the  government���������the provincial���������that  there would be no money to fight the  mosquito litis year. After viewing  the matter from the standpoint of  finances and comfort of the coming  summer days,-it was decided to leave  the matter in the hands of the worthy  Reeve ro handle. No better method  could be decided upon as Reeve McCallum  immediately got busy.  in company with .Mr. Alanson. who  lias alv.ays taken an .interest in fighting the mosquito pest. Reeve McCallum, .visited Reeve 'Fopks of Sumas  Prairie Council. Afterdiscussion of'  the matter it was decided to interview the Sumas city council" and see  what they would do as the mosqutoes  could not. be prevented .from crossing, the international botuulry ^ according to immigration laws They  are a kind of international bloodsucker lot.  At a meeting of the Sumas City  council it was agreed that Sumas City  Sumas Prairie, and Matsqui council  would put up ten barrels of coal oil  each to fight the mosqito.es breeding  parts of Sumas and Matsqui.  Later the citizens of Abbotsford  collected some money to buy oil. and  this week some 27 barrels of coal oil  were sent out to Sumas to be distributed at different points  i This ought to help some���������but oh  that jar of water still haunts us.

BATES, -       - lidiffear and Proprietor   '.  FRIDAY  JUNE 15,  1917     ���������  (lrrom Kraser Valley Record)  Now that the high water has come it is al-  , most certain that the mosquito pest will next  take possession of the Fraser Valley.for a short  time within the next few .weeks. ' In order to  alleviate the pest somewhat it is a recognized  fact all over the continent that crude oil placed  on the flooded lands during the time that the  water is rising destroys the effect of the pest  somewhat.     Even the Provincial Government  recognizes this, fact,    as   witnessed, by   the  pamphlet issued by the Agricultural Department, and published elsewhere in this issue.  Printers' ink may be good for a great many  things but the mere spreading of it on white  paper <by the Provincial Government will not  eradicate the Mosqutio Pest.  . ^   ��������� Can it be possible that the Hon. the Minister of Agriculture, who has travelled over the  ,. roads of this district, and must be aware of  the quantity of fruit grown, and also knows  that the mosquito pest is a direct loss to not  only the fruit growers, but also to the dairymen and other kindred interests of the, FraseA  Valley, is unwilling to help conserve the farming interests of the Valley when the cry of the  Empire is for the production of more food at  this time of stress.    Surely there must be something wrong or is there a negro on the woodpile?  from the United .States which, with  the steel at Clinton and other points  will complete the road to Prince  George. A stretch of 2 5 miles between Clinton and Prince .George is  yet to be graded whichi with three  steel bridges requiring about two  thousand tons of steel, will place the  whole road ready for steel rails.  , When asked if he enjoyed the trip,  Mr; Weart said,,"Yes I am glad .1  made ,the trip. You see I got two  bears and some trout. These are the  Skins," ho continued, holding up a.  couple of fine black fur pelts, "and  iu that box are the trout.���������Sun.  Mosquito Control  From Government Pamphlet  Memorandum respectfully submimt-  ted by a committee representing the  Entomological Society of British Columbia irom a discussion on Mosquito  Control,  presented  at     the    annual  meeting of the aforementioned    Society,    convened    in    the    Museum  Building, Victoria, March 17th, 1917  General Methods of Control  Mosquitoes  may   be controlled   by  destroying the larvae living pools, or  they may be wholly eradicated by eliminating  the  conditions  amendable  to   mosquito-breeding.       Destruction  of the larvae may be accomplished by  the judicious application of oil at the  proper time, or by the use of Jarvi-  cldes, but we recognize in these only  measures of temporary relief.    The  alternative, methods     of     drainage  dyking or filling-in of infested pools,  although  more  costly in  the  beginning, are of more permanent value,  Another measure which has been attended with    great . success    is    the  cleaning and deepening of the margins of    swampy    areas,    and    the  stocking of the water with small fish  that prey upon ' mosquito  larvae.  OILING  It must be understood that the use  of oil in the control of mosquito larvae is only of temporary significance  although its value cannot be gainsaid  it is   recommended   in  those     cases  where  the  n\ore  expensive  work  of  draining, dyking, or filling in    can  not   be     undertaken     immediately,  consequent  upon  the temporary na  ture of the efficacy of oil, the treatment has to be renewed at periods  of about ten or twelve days througfa-  out the mosquito- breeding season.  Its destructive action on the larvae  is greatly diminished, and may be  rendered null and void by heavy  rainfalls or strong winds. In the  latter caso the film of oil is blown to  the margin of the pond and retained  thoro by the vegetation, thus leaving the'way clear for renewed egg-  laying and the unabated production  of more larvae.  IViosquito-IlreediiiK   Pools  For' any efforts  which     look    towards tho pormanont eradication of  the mosquito nuisance, the only measures which can bo considered effective are those which Involve the entire removal of all    breeding    areas.  Contrary to popular Ideas, it is well  to emphasize the fact that no    mosquito larvae can exist except in water  and the moist vegetation alone does  not offer    suitable    conditions    for  their breeding.    The  running water  of streams and rivers does not harbor mosquito larvae,  but  they mayJ  sometimes be found in the ' quiet  back-eddies adjacent to the banks.  Ponds that are too deep and exposed  to the ruffling action of the wind dp  not offer the requisite breeding conditions for mosquitoes, except at  their peripheries, where the surface  is unruffled. If is also probably  true that mosquitoes do not breed in  water of which the organic content  is too high.  HON. J.  OF  W. WEA.IIT TELLS  INSPECTION   TOUR   ON  I*. G. E. TO OLTNTON  SOUTH VANCOUVER.���������The Hon.  J. W. Weart, M. P. P., of South Vancouver, and Mrs. Weart, returned last  night from a trip over the Pacific  Great Eastern railway to Clinton in  Company with the Hon. John Oliver,  minister of railways, who was on a  semi-official trip of inspection.  The Hon. Mr. Oliver and Mrs. Oliver left Clinton yesterday by Motor  for 150-mile House, Karaloops and  Merritt and will likely return over  the Kettle Valley line.  The Hon. Mr. Weart frankly stated  when speaking of his ��������� trip that he  enjoyed every moment of it and that  the road presents the most wonderful scenery, especially from Lillooet  to Pavillion Mountain, for twenty-  eight miles the road climbing to a-  bout two thousand feet above the  Fraser river. Many irrigated farms  dot the bench land and prevent tho  scenery from becoming monotonous.  Jt is estimated that there are five  billion feet of timber tributary to this  railway.  Mr. Sperry, the general manager  who accompanied the party, stated  that last year the road moved three  hundred head of live stock to Vancouver, and nearly one hundred cars  of potatoes and other vegetables. It  is estimated that this year there will  be about forty cars of beans alone to  come from along the line.  Large bodies of iron ore are reported at Mons and shippers are negotiating Tor its export at the rate of  250 to 500 tons per day.  "The roadbed is not in first class  shape," said Mr. Weart, "although  ���������much bettor than I expected. It will  roquiro immediate attontion, as it Is  what is termed a 'half skeleton,' and  from one to two thousand dollars a  mile would make a wonderful difference to the road.  Continuing, Mr. Weart stated that  their train left Squamish at 12:30  p. m. Saturday and reached Clinton  at 8:30 p. m. exactly eight hours,  doing 167 miles, ana returned on the  schedule time. ,,  When asked about the steel problem   with   the  company,   Mr.   Weart  stated  that he understood  the  com  pany has on order 20,000    tons    of  rails ready for immediate shipment  ORIENTAL IMMIGRATION  From Mansard  MR. OLIVER: Was there not some  recent changes in regard to the    admission  of Chinese students?  MR.  ROC HIS:  There is .legislation  in contemplation at the instance   of  the Hon. member for    Picfou     (Mr.  McDonald), who brought this made-  up before the adjournment    of    the  House   in     February.      That     Hon.  member thought we were dealing too  harshly with  a  particular    class    of  Chinese, and   I  informed him at the  time that it was the intention of the  Government to introduco at this sea-  s'ion  legislation   waiving    the    head  tax on Chinese students coming info  Canada' to attend educational    Institutions.    Tho Dill  has rcccivod    its  first rending and  is on Order  Paper  for second reading.  MIL  LEMIEUX:   While I  am raising no objection to the    immigration  of Hindus, which was    discussed    at,  the Imperial  Conference, because    1  am not so opinionated as    are    the  members who represent British Columbia, yet 1  would, like to have    an  expression of opinion from the minister, in regard to that,   very    important question.    Since  the news  was  spread     broadcast     that       facilities  would  be given  to Hindus  to settle  in Canada, bringing their wives with  j them,   has  the  government   received  any protest from  the government of  British   Columbia,     and     have     the  members who represent British Columbia in this House raised any protests as regards    this    new    policy?  Personally, I am not interested    except from a sense of duty as a    Canadian   representative.    1   know   that  there is in the province by    the   Pacific Ocean and in the other western  provinces  quite a sentiment against  any  more  Hindu   immigration-     Let  me give my experience to    the   minister.    Some years ago it    was    my  privilege to represent Canada at the  inauguration of the New constitution  in South Africa and I took that    occasion to visit    the    cities    on    the  coast of Africa.    I found that as    a  result of the immigration of Hindus,  which had been encouraged    by    the  British  authorities  in  Soutn  Africa,  the cities from    cape,   town    to    the  boundry line of Delago bay were filled with Hindus, and that they    had  practically obtained control    of    all  the small trades in all    those    cities,  towns and villages.    I found Hindus  swarming throughout  every part of  South Africa.    Now, if    you    go    to  Cape Town, Johammesburg or    Pretoria, you find as many mosques as  you  find Christian churches.    I    do  not raise this question to embarrass  the government as    to    the    future;  but in South Africa to-day,    besides  the    everpresent    problem    of    the  blacks, you have the problem of   the  Hindus.    A man who has    been    in  South Africa or any minister of the  Crown in South Africa will tell you  that the danger in that country    today is the presence    in    such    large  numbers   of     Hindus.       Personally  I have no objection to the Hindu, and  I know he represents a very old civilization, but I am speaking    for    my  Hon. friends from British Columbia  who some years ago were so intense  in their efforts to prevent    any    immigration from the far east into British     Columbia.     My     lion.     friend  knows what an outcry was raised a-  gainst the late  Govenment    because  forsooth, that Government was    not  for a white British Columbia.    I ace  some lion, members here from    British    Columbia.    They    know    what  the policy is to-day, to pave the way  for  Hindu  immigration   into  British  Columbia, and yet not    a   sound    is  heard from British Columbia representatives.      Surely     the     minister  must have received very    loud    and  strong protests against this new   departure.    The  Hindus  are going   to  come in; they are   going   to    bring  their wives with them.  The report has not been laid upon  the Table, but I know enough to say  that this policy is to be encouraged,  and as you have admitted India into  the councils of the Empire, surely India is not goint to sit silent and to  be refused admission into the British  dominions. The Government knows  more than I do, and I would like to  know what their policy is op this  questioin.  MR. ROCHE: I am afraid the lion,  member has formulated a policy for  himself on a newspaper report. I  did not so understand what I read.  I have not had the opportunity of  discussing the matter with the Prime  Minister, but I understand that at  the conference certain proposals  were made by the representatives of  the   various     governments,      Those  proposals were not laid clown    as    a,     (Often it's very small);,  policy, nor have they been acted upon:;But most of "'cm go on trying,;  by   any     government;      they     were'    Doing the best they can.  simply to be referred to the various.I  haven't a'rap  for that hard-work-  governments   for  consideration,   and $       'ing chap,  they have not'  been   considered    by      The average human man.  this government.    So that when the  lion, member talks about the government permitting .the    almost    indiscriminate immigration of Hindus into  British Columbia, he is    drawing  pretty largely upon his imagination,  for n������ such policy lias been decided  upon, and consequently no    protests  have been heard.     1' think it will be  time enough to protest    when    they  realize there is something tangible to  protest against.    There  is  undoubtedly a feeling in British Columbia a-  gainst indiscriminate    Oriental    'iiu-And  migration. There are comparatively '  few Hindus in British Columbia ,at  Hie present lime. A few, years ago  there were front 5,000 t.o 0,000, but  many ol' them have {jo no to their own  country or to 'California,' and now  there are not more tluin 2,000 in that  province.

U The telephone directory for the lower Mainland has a  circulation of 33,000 copies; it goes into every office and  almost every home between Agassiz and the Gulf of Georgia; it is referred to 200,000 times every day; it is always  in use.  U Its classified section is the standard reference for any  kind of business or any business firm. Its hundreds of  classifications cover every line, and are very complete,  ft' No. standard publication is more up-to-date than the telephone directory. Not only is its information up to the  minute, but it is absolutely correct <=���������  ft Those who advertise in the directory realize its value.  Those who do not advertise in it should give it consideration.    It is a valuable aid to any business.  BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE Co.

The needs of Belgium continue  however as pressing as in (he past  and the situation may be considered  as being" even more pitiable as,  through the forced decrease in imports, Belgium will be compelled 'to  fall back on her own native rcsoursos  already so denuded, in order t.o  maintain that so limited ration that  has been doled out in the past it will  be necessary to encroach upon the  country's stock of Milk cattle which  has been reserved to maintain a supply of fresh; milk for the children.  In the hope, however, that the recent swiftly developed shortage' in  the world's shipping���������the cause of  this new departure of the Relief  Work���������-may not permanently endure  in the hope that the necessary funds  may be available should any emergency or special occasion arise and in  view of the fact that in any event relief in many forms will be required  after the war, the Committee "hope  that all generous supporters of the  Fund in the past and all those who  have pledged themselves for future  payments will continue to support  the Fund.and thus continue to show  their sympathy will the people who  gave their all for the cause of Humanity.  All donations received after the  loth of June will be disposed of to  the best advantage of this stricken  people, according to the wish' that  may be expressed by any donor or according to the actual or more press-  needs of any of the already organized channels of Relief Work such  as:  "Help to children removed from  Belgian Front;" "Queen's Fund for  the Wounded Soldiers;" "Home for  the Belgian Soldiers;" Relief for Belgian Prisoners in Germany;" "Anglo  Belgian Committee of the Belgian  Red Cross;" "Relief for Belgian  Children suffering from Tuberculosis and Rickets;" Belgian Orphan  Fund;" "Belgian National Relief  Fund for War Orphans, etc."  All donations received prior to  the 15th of June will be held at the  disposal of the Commission for Relief in Belgium, for the purchases in  Canada .of Canadian Produce, ��������� according to our previous pledges.  The Central Executive Committee  will issue in the immediate future a  report covering the whole of their operations up to the 15th of June.  DAIRYMEN'S   CONVENTION  Kelowna will be the scene of a  gathering of B. C. dairymen-on Friday and Saturday, June 22 and 23.  It. was hoped that the annual convention of the B. C. Dairymen's Association would be held in Kelowna on  the same date as the fall fair which  is in September, but at a meeting of  ���������the association held recently, the  Secretary of the association announced that this would be impossible. As  an alternative, Mr. Wiancko suggested that an extra convention be held  In June and this elate was agreed upon, with the results that the convention will be held as stated above.  As is usual at    meetings   of    this  associations, an extremely interesting  programme has been arranged. This  programme includes judging demonstrations by P. H. Moore   and    Prof.  McLean.    Prof.   Bovingf  of  the   University of 13. C. will conduct a field  root  demonstration  and    -will     also  conduct a corn and    alfalfa    demonstration.

Moore  will  speak  on  "Clover  and Alfalfa    Silage."    The    subject  taken by Prof. McLean of    tho    University of B. C. is    "Feeding    Dairy-  Cattle, " and Mr. S. H. Shannon, president of the Association, will talk on  "The    Economical      Production     of  Milk."      "Dairy Herd Improvement'  will be the subject of the address to  be given by Prof. W.    T.    McDonald,  Live Stock Commissioner, and T. A.  F.  Wianko.    Provincial    Dairy    Instructor,  will speak  on  "The Variation of  Millk Tests."    The interest-  in and ever-important, subject of I  "Co-operation" will.be dealt with by I  J. W. Barry, and Prof. Boving, in acJ--J  dition to the demonstrations lie, will i  conduct will speak on "The Production of Roots.",   ��������� '        '  A large gathering is expected, as  there are a number of farmers in the  Okanagan district who are deeply interested in dairying and who will ho  doubt be glad of the opportunity to  hear such able and experienced  speakers on subjects of vital importance and interest to them.
