It was explained that owing to survey troubles  this deal was liable to fall through  and the letter was laid over till the  regular meeting of the council.  Iteports regarding the Skouge road  slated that on the north extension  the present right of way was more  iu the public interest than the proposed alteration would be, and that;  thoSkougc road south needs grading:  The report regarding the north part  of the road was adopted and it was  decided to have the grading done to  the south part.  Coun. Melander was authorized to  spend $150 on the Peardonville road  south of the Hill-Tout place and  Coun. Phinney was granted a further  appropriation of $200 for the County  Line road east.  D. Coombs' tender for logging  stumping and grading up to a 20-  inch crown, was accepted, and the  clerk was instructed to write to Mrs.  Bo weft to move her fence if Mr.  Coombs found it in his way.  The clerk was instructed Lo write  Smith & Hulcheson demanding a deposit of $150 to guarantee repairs  to three crossings that firm had opened across the Bradncr road, without  permission of the council.  Tho clerk was also instructed to  write to Charles Little, notifying  him to keep his bull off the public  highway.  Bylaw for disposing of two.parcels  of tax sale land received their first  second and third readings.

(From the Chilliwack Progress)  Mr. K. M. Munson, district fruit  inspector for the lover mainland, returned on Sunday from a tour of the  district. The crops generally states  P.Ir-. Munson, will be light, due - to  cold weather and strong, winds. In  Mission' and Hatzic some trouble is  expected in. obtaining pickers.  The raspberries in the Mission and  Hatzic districts this year will bo light  crops, owing to the radical changes  in the temperature during the winter  and the strong winds, the crop will  probably be reduced from ten to  twenty per cent, the result the cell  structure In the new canes being broken down to such .an extent as to  cause, dwarfing of tho fruit laterals.  The strawberry outlook is excellent  for the Chilliwack district and the  production should bo normal or.bet?  ter. The uplands of Mission district  are badly affected with the strawberry weevil which will cut down the  production considerably. However,  the lowland strawberry areas of Mission and Hatzic will balance this and  an averago crop is indicated. The  weevil prefers the warm soil of tho  uplands and is not found to the same  extent in the cooler low lying lands.  Blackberries throughout the lower  mainland are heavily in bloom and  the crop promises to be normal.  Loganberries through Mission and  Hatzic show indications of an excellent yield where the canes were permitted to lie on tho ground during  tho winter, when thoy gave protection to the rootB from tho cold weather  Cherries will be a very light crop  due particularly to the cold -weather  during the blooming or pollination  period and the incomplete fertilization through the shortage of bees during that time. Plums, pears and  prunes-will suffer, from the same  cause.  It was yet too early for Mr. Munson to form an opinion on the apples  The bloom was very heavy but cold  weather prevailed throughout the  blooming se ason and'may have affected them similarly with the other  tree fruits.  Indications point to,, good prices,  says the fruit inspector.  .   The   McMonom'y's     and   Oopgan's  motored to White Hock on Thursday.

Professor Gates of Sumas will conduct the services in the Presbyterian  church on Sunday. It will be a musical service. All who heard him last  winter will enjoy hearing him again.  PUDDLING "HOOTCH" IS  COSTLY  Two residents of the district will  for some lime keep away from any  "hootch" for some time, that' is if  being stung once is any    warning.  It appears that "hootch" was being  taken across'the line, which is a very  good line, unless one is caught at it.  They were caught and it is reported  that it cost one of them about $100  in fines besides his lawyer's fees'mul  the other $250 and 30 days in jai.l  Being a first offence they were let  off light and for the same reason this  paper is not giving any names.  The capture is considered a'clever  piece of work.  A PICTURE SHOW FOR TOWN  WHIST PARTY  There waa a verw pleasant' evening spent at the home of Mr. and Mrs.  Trethewey this week. Fourteen tables  of whist were played and dainty refreshments were served. Then dancing was indulged in.  . Mr. Ball and family have moved into the house vacated by the Plommer  family.

Should the present plans materialize the first show will most probably  be held in about three weeks. And  goo'd pictures are guaranteed, as the  show will be held under the management of an experienced picture show  expert. y  It has'been thought lor sinie time--,  that Abbotsford requires a picture  show of its own arid now"the oportun-  ity"seems to be right here.

(From  the Fraser Valley Ileconi)  '"The minimum wage board for the  telephone and telegraph operators  was held iu Vancouver this week.  The object of the inquiry was to  find out the wages paid and tho hours  of working for operators throughout  the province.  Representatives were there from  tho Mission Telephone Co., the Chilliwack Company, the Company at  Revolstoke, the C. P. R., Vaucouver;  and other interested parties.  The Misison Telephone was represented by Miss Lampard,'for the operators; Rev. J.'AV. Weathet'don, for the  public; and Mr. J. A. Bates for tho  company, and Mrs. Levesquo, of the  local branch of the B. C .Telephone  company, all of whom gave evidence  Owing to the absence of the B.

Will Alcock, the flying man, take a  place in the school history with such  men as Columbus, Drake, Fulton  and others.  Tho only way to settle the strike  would be to pass a law making it  compulsory that on a certain day���������  say, August 1st, 1919, to have all  wages above a certain minimum, say  above $5.00'per day, reduced ten  per cent., and at the same time all  connected with the high cost of living' to be reduced' twenty-five per  cent.,.the latter to be retroactive on  all goods purchased from the large  wholesale houses during the sixty  days previous to August 1st.

Collective  Bargaining  The Columbian: Collective- bargaining continues to be a much debated term. . When men wax eloquent  in defence of the principle it is well  to have a clear conception of what  each variety of collective bargaining  means.  The first sort comprlnends tho  oj-.cn discussion of all the workers in  o certain-specified industry, by means  of a get together committee equally  representing both sides. It is a form  that ia everywhere commended.  The second form is much wider in  its scope, It is based on the federation of all unions, in any way related  to a group of industries dealing with  SMivlar products.  The Metal Trades organization is  cited as an example.    All metal worl-  ing unions have a "central council  ���������vhich undertakes to deal directly  with employees who have disputes  wvih their men. This council may  also represent unions which have no  direct' relation with the- plums ,af-  iccte-l by llio unrest. H ha*; bee;,  jioinle d out that there'are employer-;  who, desirous of treating with their  men fairly, sec in the interference of  such a central council, wider than  allied trades and representing unions none of whose members are in  their employ, an objectionable situation. They are willing to bargain  with .unions whose members they  employ, but., they are unwilling to  accept dictation of outsiders., They  favor collective bargaining-No. I, hut  oppose collective bargaining No. 2.  The. third sort of collective bargaining, as put forward, in the Toronto and Winnipeg strikes, is thus  described by the Toronto Times.  "All  the unions elect central  committee with power to call out  workers of all kinds, unless employers having' difiiculty with their men  accept tlie rulings of this central  organization. Such    a    commitce  Lakes- no cognizance of agreements  made by any union with the'employers. It seeks to dictate to all employers at tho expense  of the community"  The Toronto newspapers' conclusion may not be accepted in its entirety, but if the principle of fair  collective bargaining is subverted to  revolutionary ends then the third  form of "C. B." is one that should  be clear in its purpose before being  accepted by the moderate elements in  labor   circles.  same' night 'in "New .York and read  on the dinner tables' there.

LfL  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  PAGE THREE  "G  TRIO 1804  FLOOD, IX  THK KKASKR  VALL10Y  (From the Vancouver World)  Dweller's along (he Fraser Valley  are anxiously watching the rise and  fall of the river at this time. For  old-timers that anxiety is accentuated by the remembrance of the deluge of just twenty-five years- ago,  for it was in June 1894, that one of  th greatest floods recorded since the  a dvent of white, settlement" .swept  over the valley, destroying flocks and  crops and imperilling the lives of tho  pioneers.  It was a calamity of no short'preparation. For two previous winters  unusually heavy snows had accumulated in lhe mountains, and comparatively cool summers had not dislodged them. Tho early spring ol*  . .IS!M wivo also cool and there was  little wastage-of the snow.    Then iu  the latter part of May came a period  of abnormal heat; the snow vanishing and  the  water rising.  Indications of the coming flood  were first received about the end of  May with'the reports of damage done  in the upper country and in , the  states to (.the south, where the waters  or. the Skagit and',' Snohomish wore  washing out the crops and stranding  settlers and. their houses and stock  in the uplands. ��������� On May 31 the  Fraser Valley was seriously Hooded,  and throughout the first week in  June  the  destrcution  went  on.  A report in the World of May 31,  IIS94, stated: ':  , "Otway Wilkie has ��������� moved his  stock to a. place of safety, only about  fifteen acres - of his farm aro covered."   '  1.5ut others suffered worse. Farm-  ers along the valley can still recall  taking refuge in the upper storeys-  of  Iiousch  and  watching, .theii*..stock.  drowning   in   tlie. turbid   wafers, lie-  low.  The,most alarming story that came  in was that in' one part a raft had  been1 stranded on which were tlie  dead' bodies' of live members of one  family who had improvised this  means of escape but had perished  from the hardships. It is not record  ed that the story was ever definitely  confirmed,, but that it should have  found credence indicates tho state  of mind into .which the settlers had  boon ��������� driven.  As the wafers rose higher, -dykes  were swept away, bridges washed out  and giant cotton trees' uprooted..  Approaches to the railway bridge, at  .Mi'-sion wore swept away, ami a C I'll, engine was stalled there unable  to get off at,-either end. Industry  along the valley was brought to a  standstill, the water rising over the.  doors of sawmills and canneries.

Provision against loss in transit Is  mado by many associations by the  formation of Insurance funds, shipper*, contributing a portion of the  proceeds, of the sale of their stock  generally about two or three cents a  hundred pounds, for this ���������purposa.  Other associations prefer to insure  their shipments with local Insurance  companies  Does the farmer secure any financial benefit from the market of stock  in   this   manner?    To   answer   this  this assistance* many associations  liave been encouraged to undertake  the work, and having once started it  Is very seldom  that the undertaking  Is abandoned.  There Is no doubt that these associations are a means of increasing the  prosperity of the farmer. Not only  dees he get higher prices for every  shipment he makes, but this fact and  the convenience of the market also  encourages him to increase his live-  clock holdings. The success of one  association also encourages others to  follow its example.

Years later, at the opening  of the present New Westminster  bridge Premier McBride referred to  it as "a city tried by flood and fire."  In the course of the flood the  bridge over the North Arm connecting Lulu Island' with the mainland  was washed, away, but Lulu Island  itself" does hot seem' to have suffered  seriously.        Evidently the      dykes  stood.  To show how matters wero on  some of the farms on Pitt. Meadows  ii World correspondent recites "On  Sam Robertson's place I saw the  hogs swimming in the fields and the  chickens walking along the tops of  such fences as were left."  With the numerous washouts it-  was exceedingly difficult to maintain  communications, and railway passengers found themselves stalled for  days'at'different points. Relief for  those along the lower Fraser was  afforded by the use of steamers to  carry them down to the coast.  ' At Mission the lower part of the  town was in a wretched condition  and great credit is given "Mine host  Windebank ofthe Bay View hotel  for the fine accommodation he provided" in that distressful time.  One of the most pathetic stories  told in connection with the Hood was  that of a Chinese placer miner who  became stranded near Yale. He  lashed himself to a sluice box and  ���������wii&lasl seen alive floating down the  river with it. La tor his dead body  was found on the shore still lashed  f-) the sluice box.  was not until after the middle  of cune that the water subsided-and  seme estimate of    the ' trem-wilo-us  damage it had done could be formed  Among, the heavy sufferers it is recorded ���������  that    Alexander    Evans    of   -  Chilliwack   had   lost   house,   barn,  stock and crops and    that    $25,000  would not recoup him. H. F. Page of  Matsqui is. also spoken' of as having  lost about $18,000 worth of property  but after all it    was    probably    the.  smaller settlers who suffered    worst.  They wero left in so pitiable a condition that the government was compelled   to   come  to   their  relief   and  furnish   them   with   ������ood(   and, .buy  stock for them to start again.  Among the names of active workers for relief are found those of Hon.  Theodore Davie, at that time Premier  of  the province, and Co.pt.    11.    G.  Tatlow.    One result of the flood was .  that a better dyking system was installed in those parts of the valley  .most subject to flood; more complete  drainage was provided for, and it is  not likely that so serious a disaster  could  happen ���������  again.     Old    timors,  however, Ayill never forget the nights  and  days of horror spont in  upper  rooms, and seeing their hard-owned  worldly possessions swept away,, nor  will they ever quite forget tho pathos  of the moans pf the pet hors*eor cow  which    wero    compellod    to    watch  helplessly perish.      Fortunately    tho  toll in human life seems to have been  small. Nevertheless one can well imagine tho feeling of relief that came  to these dwellers in their lonely arks  when  "the water subsided and the  dry Ian d appeared again."  iVtlSKKi  &*������������m. >-^  *&%  &  r a  4ss&*  i^  "���������"���������maofe**;  T  T^HE   Dominion   of   Canada   offers  you   every   safeguard   for   your  investment-in Thrift and War Savinga  Stamps.  <H" Your postmaster will register every War Savings  Stamp for you. and if they are lost by theft, fire or  other cause, you can still obtain your money, with  the accumulated interest, at the office where the  stamps were registered.
