The attempt- at  robbery  was unsuccessful owing to the fact-that the  operators   were   disturbed   in  their  attempts by the arrival on the scene  of  Constables Clarkson and Thorne.  Con. Clarkson, who has his residence  in the police headquarters adjoining  the bank was awakened shortly before one o'clock  of the morning in  question   by   a   muffled   report   but  attached no significance to it thinking it came from'   the livery stable  a few doors away.    A second report  followed..   This  time  the   Constable  hastily donned his cl6thing.and called Con. Thorne,  v. ho sleeps in the  old jail building alongside the new  structure.    Mr.   Clarkson  then   proceeded to the gates opening on the  street and, encountered dense clouds  of   smoke.    Turning  to  the  left  he  stepped into the doorway of the court  room when  he   saw  a  man  emerge  from the door of the    bank.      The  constable  , immediately     exchanged  shots with  the  bandit,  six  shots  in  all being discharged by him and as  many by the robber.    One shot directed at the constable passed in between his body and arm and lodged  in . the woodwork adjacent.    In the  meantime Con.  Thorne, hearing. the  volley circled  around- the ..buildings  and made- for the centre of the;'rbad-  so as to command a good view of the  bank  door.    The   robbers,   however,  took to their heels and made a getaway in the prevailing darkness and  confusion. -  They   were   tracked   on  , R. C. Abbott,. Mission City, was  appointed market commissioner Friday by the. executive committee by  the Fraser Valley Development <  League. Mr. Abbott was selected  as one of the ten by a sub-committee  from a host of candidates, and latterly was , interviewed along with  nine others, by the selecting committee, who on a second ballott recommended him for the post.  Mr. Abbott will start on a monthly salary of $100 and traveling expenses.  The choice of- Mr.. Abbott is con- .  sidered an excellent one. He has  had twenty years experience in the  various districts in the Fraser Valley, extending from the Delta up to  Mission City. After several years  in the creamery business Mr. Abbott  has been engaged for the paBt six  years in raising and marketing fruit  in Mission district. , His name is a  familiar one in the prize lists of the  varous exhibitions in the lower  growing.  Reeve-, Marmont, of Coquitiam,  presided at the executive meeting  and Secretary J. W. Cunningham reported the recommendation of the  sub-committee.  President Marmont said they had  gone into the matter of selection very  exhaustively.      They had given the  candidates  at   the   interview   ostensibly ten    minutes���������mostly    fifteen  minutes���������considered .their  qualifications and past experience and listened ���������tp their views-and proposed method "of. conducting*- the -work- "of  the.  league.    Mr. -Abbot's address was a '"  most practical one and showed that  he   had   a  thorough   grasp. of  what'  was   required   of   him.

MATSQUI COUNCIL  The bi-monthly meeting of - the  municipal council was held in the  Exhibition building of the Matsqui  Agricultural and Ho'rtcultural Association on Saturday, June 20th,  with the reeve in the chair and all  the members in attendance.  The minutes of the last meeting  of the Court of Revision and of the  last council meeting were read and  adopted.  Communications Received From  F. M. Singer Company, asking  permission to cross the Coughlan  road with a logging tram line. Permission was granted, the crossing  to be on a level grade with the road  and not to interfere with -traffic in  any way, and the road to be left  in as good a condition when the crossing is taken out'as when installed.  E. G. Walter, stating that the  Township Line road ditch was being  filled in and rendered useless by  reason of a neighbor's cattle. The  clerk was instructed to write the  owner of the cattle in question that  the damage done must be repaired,  otherwise the Council will have the  work done at his expense.  H. J., A.

Filed/ -  ' ���������     Resolutions:  Melander, Beaton; that .Councillor McCallum be authorized to expend an amount not" exceeding $50  in brushing oat the old Maclure road  Carried.  McCallum, IBeaton; That Councillor Melander be authorized to expend  $200.00 at the junction' of Aberdeen  arid Huntingdo.a roads and $25.00  on the Lehman road west of the Le  Feuvre .road.    Carried.  McCallum, Melander; that Councillor Beaton have an appropriation  for grading the -Turner road from  the Fore road to the Harris road,  tenders to be called for, to be in at  the next meeting (of the council:  Carried. ���������������������������.,'.  McCallum-Beaton, that, Councillor  Melander have a further appropriation, of $5^70 on the north LeFeuvre  road.   Carried. ���������  McCallum, .Melander; that the  Clayburn Company be given, permission to connect the track    on    the'  within- two weeks, .'otherwise no further-work will be done on this road.  In. the matter of expending the  appropriation made'for the Sinclair  road, the reeve reported that he was  in- full accord with Councillor Melander as to where the money should  be spent, ��������� while Councillor Satchell  disagreed.' By motion, it was resolved to - expend a further sum of  $25.00-on this .road by the-property  of Mr.- D. Sinclair..  The matter of .cutting of the Canada .thistles was discussed and each  councillor, was instructed tot-' take  such steps as were necessary to have  them cut in his own ward.  The matter.of strightening the Mt  Lehman road through the S. W. %  of Sec. 13, Tp. 13, was referred to  Councillor Melander; and the straight  ening'ofthe Township Line road in  fornt of .the 'property of Mr.  J.  A.  the corner of Welton Street but there  the trail was entirely lost. Had it  been possible to assemble a small  posse of armed citizens a search  would evidently have been' made and  probably disclosed the fleeing robbers. As it was. the constables arms  consisted only of small calibre revolvers while from indications the  robbers had large calibre guns. The  telephone' service could have been  used to advantage had it been in operation in the night as numerous  citizens were awakened by the noise  but realized too late that something  serious was occuring.  In the bank a scene of disorder  presented itself. The large double  doors of the safe were badly twisted  with the several shots of nitro glycerine or "soup" that were discharged.  A   window- alongside   the  safe  mas  Morrison was referred to Councillor shattered. as was also the glass door  Satchell.  ' The- laid-bver ^contract- on1 the  Clearbrook road was awarded to C.  B. Hill Tout for the sum of $147.00.  The laid over contract of building  a bridge ��������� over the "Engstrom's"  slough and making the necesary approaches was awarded to Olaf Nelson for the sum of $340.00,.the work  to be completed by August 15th.

Cunningham   Hardware  Company,  through which the robbers gained  an entrance to the building, and  large quantities of ground asbestos  fulling from between the plates on  the- safe were tracked over the floor.  The nitro was ineffective in as much  as one good shot would have dislodged the doors. It is evident that  the robbers thought it possible to  do the trick with a small shot and  the chances of the noise awakening  anyone in the neighborhood would  consequently be diminished. As it  happened three attempts were made  tools,   $11.05;   cutlery   $1.25, '.total:to open the strong box.

With a  little more luck the robbers would  undoubtedly have opened the safe  and made away with the contents.  That Constable Clarkson escaped  without -injury is truly remarkable  as the position he was in permitted  of no escape for him from the shots  of the burglar. Had the two outlaws worked together in this they  could, have bottled the constable in  the corner of the court room entrance as this entrance is walled in  on three sides.  Judging from the address Mr. Abbott gave them he had the gift of  persuasion essential to securing the  sympathies of the farmers along the  Fraser (Valley .and to bring producer  and consumer together.  The appointment was made unanimously.  Mr. Abbott stated his intention to  make good and had no doubt of it  as he counted upon the co-operation  of the executive committee, a co-operation which the members heartily  asured him of.  Some conversation was held as to  the length of the engagemeent which  concluded so satisfactorily that Mr.  E. Hutcherson, of Delta, observed,  "You will sink or swim with the  league. That is the kind of man we  want.  The question of inducing the municipalities and public bodies still  standing out from the league was  briefly discussed and it was resolved  that the commissioners should undertake a missionary enterprise and  convert the infidels, a mission the  president considered he was amply  qualified for.  Reeve Lougheed, of Maple Ridge,  who presided at the latter part of  the meeting, stated that he and Mr.  Buchannon of Maple Ridge, would  visit Matsqui Municipality on the  conversion stunt.  It  was remitted to  a small  committee to  report on  the best mode"  of incorporation either under the agricultural act or under the benevo-   <  lent societies act."  <H  TENDERS  Presbyterian Ladies' Aid  Tenders are called for painting  and decorating of the Abbotsfor'd  Presbyterian Church and Sunday  School room.

Journal devoted to the interests of Abbotsford and district  Our  Advertising  rates  made  known  on  application  Shibboleth���������Neither   for   iior   agin'   the   Government-  FRIDAY, JUNE 26th/ 1914  The Mny.isspo of the Agricultural  Gazette   ol)   Canada    may  well     bo  termed the Agricultural co-operation  ' number., ' Co-opcrativo legislation in  Canada is reviewed by T.  K. Doher-  ty,   U L.   D.,  coiumissioncr for Canada of tho .International  Institute of  Agriculture.   In  this article  wc  find  that  .liritish   Columbia,  as  far  back  as   18 9 7   in   tho   Farmer's   Institute  Co-opcratiun   Act,  .provided   for'cooperation   for     economic     purposes.  Various amendments to this Act prepared   tho   way   for   the   passing  of  and  the writer roaches the conclusive   Agricultural   Associations'   Act,  39 11, which gives these farmers' associations  wide  powers in  co-operative    endeavor.      The    co-operative  movement   as   expressed -in   legislation  in  other  provinces is outlined,  ion that much lias been accomplished  in recent years to facilitate co-operation and that these legislative measures cannot fail to be followed    by  beneficial results.  Agricultural co-operative activity  in the different provinces is reviewed by qualified correspondents. Go-  operative creameries, marketing of  eggs, of fruit and vegetables, and  co-operative production are given  attention. The province of Ontario  has 9 5 co-operative selling organizations, 20 of them being egg circles.  Manitoba has found it profitable .to  promote co-operative marketing of  poultry products. British Columbia's success in. the co-operative  marketing of fruit is of outstanding  importance. Prince .Edward Island  farmers have made considerable advance in co-operation, the co operative marketing of eggs being the  most important agricultural movement in that province. " Nineteen  egg circles were in active operation  during the year of 1913, with a mem  bership of 1,220, and for the past  twelve months had a record in egg  shipments, of 17 5,000 dozen; 71 circles are now organised, the Dominion Department of Agriculture promoting this movement. The egg  circle movement in Ontario and in  Quebec is also strong.  out that there is a- possibility that  both Chilliwack and Hammond associations could be got into lino with  the ultimate object in view of forming a gigantic association to include  the growers of the entire lower main  land.  The -benefits  that    would     result  from the organization of such a body  would   be   limitless.   There   can   be  no   question   of   that.    What   would  have  become of the growers in the  neighboring- state   of  Washington���������  in the Puyallup and Yakima valleys  weue it not for the fact that they are  organized and  banded together, into  one   large   bodjy.    They   have   been  able   to   appoint   commissioners  and  to   build   canneries   to  handle  their  surplus   fruit.    They   have   been   in  a   position,to   secure-  express   rates  tiiat   could   not   be   had   otherwise.  The benefits' reaped by these American  organizations'"are many.    They  could be obtained here were a concerted  tffort  made  to secure  them.  One   little   association  alone   would  hardly   be   heard,   but  the   demand  voiced by every grower in the entire  valley would undoubtedly bear some  weight with the powers that,, be.  It would take some considerable  manipulating to affect the full co-operation of all the different fruit and  i  produce growing districts in this  valley but the matter could be accomplished and it would be well  worth the effort. .  The Provincial Government, in the'  person of Mr. Winslow, has an enthusiastic representative,' as was  indicated at the meeting held here.  And if there ever is a concerted effort made at organization of the entire Fraser Valey growers the able  assistance of, Mr. Winslow can surely be counted on.  same prompt delivery .applies to;the  crabs   from "Maryland   waters,   fruit  and,, vegetables  from   Delaware  and  Maryland;- poultry,' butter "and  egg'.-*  from the farms of either state or any  other source of supply in the Philadelphia zone where tlie bureau has  established connections with producers���������or   dealers.    While  the  bureau  system   contemplates' quantity   purchasing, it is adapted to consumer.-!  as  well  as retailers or jobbing and  commission   houses.    Each   Monday  morning William Tunis, chief industrial  agent  of  the  company's  order  arid food products bureau, mails to  several  thousand  dealers,  clubs and  other   quantity  .buyers   a   price   lis,t  for   the   work,   subject   in   case   of  dealers to violent fluctuations.due to  excess   production   or   unlooked   for  scarcity.  In Canada we do things differently  taking care not to disturb .the"bigJ  interests." Our parcels post system is so designed that it contains  no terrors for the express companies,  owned and operated by the .railway  companies. The United States government is not only striking at tho  high  cost of living by reducing tho  tariff on many commodities and abolishing the duty on food stuffs entirely, but it is taking measures which  compel the transportation companies  and public carriers to enlist in service for .the poople.  DIGGING   AT   THE ROOTS.  With such examples the co-operative marketing movement which the  Fraser Valley Development League  seeks to promote should receive encouragement and the" executive be  strengthened in their aim to unite  the producers of the Fraser Valley  in co-operative activities of the utmost importance to agricultural pros  perity.  A movement that promises much  good for the fruit growers of this  district is being inaugurated by the  fruit growers of both Hatzic and  Mission.  As  has' been   previously   reported  in these columns the local fruit producers through their secretary have  been   asked   for   quotations   on   car  load   loty. of   raspbarries.    Fearing  that   there   would' nc't   be   sufficient  fruit available to fill a' car daily it  was  deemed  advisable to  invite  the  growers of Hatzic to associate with  the   Mission   growers  to   attain   this  ��������� end.    Several  meetings have recently been held in which the matter has  been   thoroughly   threshed   out  with  the   result  that  Mission  and   Hatzic  will   work   together  for  this  season  at least in the shipping of their fruit."  Desiring definite information on tlie  prevailing .express rates it was considered good policy to get expert advice on. the matter.    Accordingly an  invitation was extended to Mr. Winslow, secretary of the British Columbia   Fruit   Growers,   at  Victoria,   to.  come to Mission City and address a  meeting   of   growers.    Mr.   Winslow  wired his acceptance of the invitation  and arrived and addressed a meeting  the   following  evening.    During  the  course of this meeting it was given J Philadelphia   the  When   the   United   States   government went into the parcel post bus  iness a short time ago the general  opinion was that the private express  companies which  had  been   doing a  roaring  trade  working in   collusion  iwith   the   railway  companies   would  ;be done for.    In fact, one company  at least announced that it would retire from what appeared in prospect  to be an unremunerative field.    But  the Adams Express Company had a  different idea.    It announced that it  would branch out and do things that  no government could touch, and incidentally play a part in the solution  of the high cost of living.'.Here is  what  the  Adams  Express. Company  is going, to  do:'    The company will  promote more intimate-relations be-  between the producer or dealer and  the  consumer .and  create a  market  for food products that in the ordinary  complicated    and    cumbersome  system of handling commodities frequently means a loss to the'grower  and   entails  unnecessary high'  costs  to the ultimate buyer.    The company  will become a clearing house for excess   production,   disposing   of  fruit,  berries,   butter,   eggs,   poultry,   fish,  meat   and   other  food   articles   at  a  minimum expense to seller and buyer.    The   company   will   become   responsible    to     both;   delivering  the  commodities at the the buyer's door  and the money to the seller without  any intervening agency. The rate on  the class of merchandise for which  the bureau has been designed is 25  per cent, below the commercial rate  fixed     by    the interstate commerce  commission, < and is no  higher than  parcels   post  charges.   'The   feature  of the  bureau system-is immediate  delivery service.    The;company . .will  establish   centres   from     which     its  services   will   radiata    Fish, ��������� fresh  from the water at Chincoteague, Va.,  in    the  . morning are   delivered   in  NEW   WESTMINSTER   MARKET  There was an unusually large attendance of city and Valley residenio  at the New Westminster weekly market held last Friday morning and all  were eager to buy with the result  that the alleyways around the different stalls presented a very brisk  appearance.1 .All carried 'away a  package of supplies and the vendors  were more than satisfied with the  morning's  sales.  The surprising feature ' of the  whole market' was the fact that beef  took a sudden big .raise in price.  Last Friday sthe-best beef rib roasts  could be had for 18 cents the pound  but Friday the buyer had to ��������� paj  from 22 to 25 cents'the pound;. 25  to 28 cents the pound was asked for  loin of.beef.and 30 cents for, short  loin.
