 i3  Ci,  With-which is incorporated!"The Huntingdon Star"  Vol. XXIV., No. 9.  Abbols'ford, B. C.,F&day, June 23, 1922.  $1.00 Per Annum.  , i,  About one hundred sat down to  the Banquet on Thursday evening  representing all points south oi" the  Fraser from Ladnor to Cluiliwack,  New Westminster, Vancouver and  Mission.City, and that they ^enjoyed  the most sumptuous repast provided  by the local board; ��������� The, banquet  started about eight and'went strong  for about three and a half hours,  with not many dull or uninteresting  moments., Tt was a: success in many  respects. ��������������������������� -  After the good 'things shad been  partaken of with the ladies of the W.  C. T. U. presiding, the chairman introduced the speakers of thei evening  in an entertaining ,and humorous  manner, placing all present at ease  for the enjoyable session that was to  follow. Mr. James Downie, the blind  hero'of Abbotsford-,/ sang and wfas  loudly encored, to which Jie responded enthusiastically, theV/guests joining in-the chorus.   '  Premier Oliver was the first speaker, and to hear him on tlie cost of  transportation and the reasons 'put  forward for-the'-50/, to 100 ��������� per cent  higher .rates for^this, province over  ���������the-*"eastern provinces,' --one vcannoE'  but admire. the. bold businesslike  - manner in which he has taken hold  of this" matter in the interests of the  province, "and should .-. he keep the  matter from becoming a political  question- " within "the '..province he  should have the backing of every citizen''.of the province' in liis" endeavor  to secure equity of'freight roles for  this-province with the 'fc-.^t ' i' Canada." So fair he has "had. iho >:om-  mendatioh of his political frie.ids ami  foes"' and there is no reason why  this should not continue.  At present Canada by the present  freight rates was divided into three  great divisions,"the division west of  the Rocky mountains getting the  worst of the^deal, "because it was a  mountainous country.!' . At this he  laughed,, as the.cost of the'C: In.  ( $30,000 less a mile more than, the  railway from Ottawa to Montreal,  where excellent freight rates were  given.  British Columbia had contributec"  much .towards the cost of construction of the C. P. R. through British  Columbia!. The land grants and* tin  cash subsidies allowed for railway  construction in B. C. should amply  repay the company without the ex.-  horbitant high rates that now prevail  In 1874 the Imperial government  had been,,approached when "the now  historical ^-Ca-rnarveon Terms became  the all-absorbent subject of. dispute..  The province/could, again approach  the' same' government' if need be but  a wrong would le cor.'.mi!'M f!*"-1  never could be undone if the barrier  of the present freight rates were not  removed, and tho union r!' eor-J^d "  ation would never be realized until  such time as three dlsLinct divisions  in the freight -a tor*, over Canadian  roads were iremoved.  , Premier Oliver was most heartily  encored many time throughout the  address. ^  Hon. ,E.D. Barrow, in a most op-  tiniisticspeech, .told of the success of  the Sumas Reclamation scheme, and  that this success should remove-the  barriers of criticism which had been  hurled against the government expenditure in this undertaking,    v.  The speaker reported that the  Premier and himself had visited, the  district that afternoon and had been  ���������on land that, in the. history of the  district, had never been dry at this  time of the year before. 30,000 acres  of the best lan'd land in the Fraser  Valley would aid production in '' this  province. The. province needs more  productions prevent the large sums  of money from leaving province each  year for food products. It was a  pleasure to announce the assured  success of the great undertaking'in  Abbotsford,the real centre' of the  Chilliwack riding. '      "'  Some' $19;0OO'' was due for interest  on'money, advanced .on . the scheme  and at an.-early date a meeting would  probably be held' to ' go thofougly  into*,the'- matter with ".-the."rpr.op.ezty;  owneirs." The $32,000 of estimated  loss of the farmers of the district  would ,be a" good basis to start from  for  taxation purposes.  ' Mr".'"Barrow received' a    round* of  applause when- he ' stated    that    the  land should be kept for   the    white'  race,-and-noUallowed    to-* get into  tlie hands of the Oriental: There were  vge tracts of land that;, would have  j be subdivided, and this    together  ,1th the crown lands,   would be sold  under such'arrangements  that    the  lands for all time to    come    would  prevent them from getting into other  hands than white hands.  He hoped that the work .would be  completed next year, when he believed that all" would agree that there  had been no more practical area for  increasing production than the .Sumas  area.  Mr. W. L. Macken, president of the  provincial Associated Boards of  Trade said that no scheme of co-operation would be a success unless all  aking part would, get beliind it and  lush instead of talking too much. He  :aid, "We want more 'peptimists' "  vhpse duty it would be to give their  vhole-hearted support to the govern-  nen in their schemes for the better-  nent of the community.  He wished the associated boards of  trade for the Fraser Valley every  success.  Mr. Geo. E. Kyle gave a most excellent talk on co-operation, and  during his talk referred to Abbotsford as the "Hub of the Fraser Valley." He would like to see such cooperation as would prevent the middleman from making millions out of  the produce of the province instead  of that sum going to the farmers.

He stated that  the work*which the" dominion government "were-responsible .for.was "limited to. the needs.of navigation."

The   farmers of the Valley don't want,daylight  saving," urged Mr. Kenda!-.. Though  both i^angley and .Surrey are said to  be exposed to"the new time,    it transpired that at a recent    meeting,  at  Chilliwack, where"84 out of 86 present were members of the    Milk Producers'   Association;   daylight  saving,  was approved.    As the B.'C. ii). R. is.  said to be taking the    views    of the  Milk Producers as, the . views of the  Valley, the meeting thought it unwise  to interfere.  Surrey Board of Trade brought up  the anomaly that if the police or customs officers at Pacific Highway or  Diouglas have to be called, it must  lie through the exchange at Blaine.  "The Dominion government phones  are on a United States exchange and  lots of people won't call up the police  to give information because . they  don't want to get stuck with tlie cost  of the long distance call, explained  Mr. Kendall. The resolution of the  Surrey Board asking that these  phones be put- onto the Cloverdale  exchange was -ipproved.  The chairman '��������� brought, up the  question of getting out a booklet to  advertise the advantages of .the  Fraser- Valley. Daily enquiries for  information are said to come in from  Alberta and Saskatchewan and as far  afield as Iowa. Some of the books  will be sent to the Agent-General's  office at London for British enquirers. A committee composed of Secretary Keary and Mr. Winson are to  look into the matter of getting out a  booklet.

BA.TBS, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1922  We talk about Canada as ai  nation within the British Empire, but the question arises are  the public men of Canada of  the right kind to build up a  nation? In this question both  Liberal and Conservative are  considered as one. Are our  , public men safeguarding the  interests of the common people  or the capitalist. It is not the  intention to answer this question in this editorial, we are just  getting inquisitive.  A nation to be a nation that  its residents or citizens are  proud of should give employment, and steady employment  to a Varied class of men and  women, who are contented with  their lot: This is hard to do  - under present conditions but  it is the'duty-of our public men  to ever work to that end.  Does it make for nation building that the product of the soil  when placed upon the market  should have to compete with  the same kind of product from  another country, especially if  that country does not permit of  the same privilege. The growers of Canada���������of British Columbia���������find that their fruit,  owing to the doing away with  the anti-dumping clause, has  to compete with American fruit  in their own country.' Will the  growers be satisfied with this?  On Vancouver Island there  is to be found some of the best  steam coal; to be found anywhere. Today it is - said that  the coal miners are working  only eight days in the . month,  and-that the day for B.--C. coal  mines prosperity is past. And  what is the cause? Engines on  railroads use oil; paper, mills  use oil. ~ Oil may be cleaner  but "it is taking the* place ' of  what a product of this country  could very well fill. Is it nation  building to give preference of  work to a foreign country?  Up the coasts of B. C. there  is what is called the "closed  towns", where only employees  of American or other foreign  capital are allowed to do business. Numerous and various  reports come to hand of how tlie  men are treated in these towns,  and if only a part be true it does  not make for, contentment and  prosperity among the working  men and women. ' Is it nation  building to permit also the profits', to go out of the country?  Is it not on avpar with the" non-  taxation of the ; Oriental money that leaves for the east coast  of another continent than our  own?  Again is the kind of autocracy  practiced in the-'closed towns in  the best interests of a democracy ?-  Is it nation building to permit. Oleomargarine to come into Canada to compete with a  class of men���������the tillers of the  soil���������who are the backbone of  any country. Maybe this is  why there is a Progressive party in Canada how ?  These are a few of the things  we should consider in nation  building.  ' would also like to ask if it is the intention of the Government ' to have  printed Uie correspondence . which  has been laid on- tlie table at .tlie request of the hon. member' for West  You-k (Siir Henry. Drayton). I refer to tlie correspondence between  the government of the United States  and the Canadian government on  this question; and further, whether  opportunity will be afforded" the  House, before Palrliameut prorogues,  ol' discussing the policy involved in  tlie report referred to and the action  taken   by   tlie   government.  Hon.    W.    L.    Mackenzie      King  (Prime Minister):   In regard to the  report itself, copies were laid on the  table-at an early stage of tlie session  as my  hon. friend  knows,    it    was  then  intimated  that the' government  had a supply of printed copies, copies  printed in the    United    States    and  supplied  in   large  numbers  to     our  government.    I think it is pirobabh*  that all 'requests thus far made for  copies have been met from   this supply.  If the government    should rind  that it is not possible to meet al the  requests for copies of    the    reporu  from its available supply I think the.  report should be printed in Canada as-,  well;  but it is an extensive report to  reprint and if    without    embarrass  ment that amount of expense can be  saved I believe the government would  be justified in saving it.      However,  let me make it clear that if   request,  are made to tlie government for- con  ies of the report in printed form beyond  the supply    available the government will consider the advisability of printing further copies.  .'As to the second question concern  ing the printing of the    papers that  were laid on the table a day or twi.  ago, it will be a pleasure-- to    have  them  printed.  As to fixing a time to discuss this*  matter further, I think the House  has already debated it for three 01  four days of the present session.' I  would not like to promise my hon  friend an opportunity to speak again  on that subject, but we will take the  matter into consideration.  Mr. Church: Do I understand  rightly, in view of,t!ie reply given to  the government of the United States,  that no fu'-rther action on the findings  "of this report is. .contemplated- by  the Canadian'."government? -'.���������.*-���������-'���������  Mjr. ��������� Mackenzie King: " I- think; my  hon. friend is a3 well able to read  the reply already* given, as I am to  interpret it. That reply stated that  the,, government did not think it advisable to take up the matter at this  time; it. did not go .beyond' that.���������  JMansard.-  tho companies' favor for that    year  were only 30 per cent, of the prem-  id th  is ratio "of losses to prom-  been    maintained    for  12  iums an  iums has  years. '.   '  Rates Is Parallel Case ' i  "What has become of the enormous profits of this insurance? There  is no doubt that B. C. is paying the  losses- of Eastern Canada. ' I  "This is almost parallel to tho I  :ailway discrimination case. These.  enormous- surpluses' have " been obtained by the' insurance companies  ���������for at l^ast ten years, but records  are hot' available before that time.  Out of these immense sums conflagration hazards have, no doubt, beei.  accumulated or ii' not they i'hould  have been.  "The, Employers' Association is  prepared to prove to the board and  tlie public that these foregoing deductions a(re correct and that a reduction of at least 40 per cent should  bo given to insurers and that 25 per  cent of that should come Into effect  immediately, making it retroactive  to0the first of the year.. In view of  the claim of the Employers' Association that the companies are collecting $191,000 per -month too much,  it is.felt that this request is fair.  Labor Saving Urged  "The board companies are makinj*;  a great boast that ������they can save  the province, through re-rating if 3 00.  000 per annum. The Employerc'  Association claims that the "citizens  of this province should be saved tho  amount of $2,300,000.  ���������'The Fire Insurance Underwriters  have not shown any willingness to  meet the Employers' Association,-���������  the statement concludes, "and'din-  :uss those' figures, which have been  prepared in very-great detail from official records only."

B. C. are 40  per cent., too high.  , ."The B. C.

Horses- couldn't drag    you    to    p  hunting trip in a treeless wilderness;  a fishing trip by a treeiess stream;,  or camping out in a treeless valley.

Box 94  A Detriment To  The Industry  - We have been called up by several newspaper people who receive ads  from private individuals and companies offering berries at a quoted  price direct to the consumer. We arc-  asked whether or not these advertisers are reliable. The-terms of t> e  sale are f.o.b. shipping point. The  advertiser may be honest and ship  only such quality of . produce that  .may appear good at time of shipment, but after three' or four da;, s  journey in a hot car, with perhaps  one or two transfers and delays, who  can-say the,condition the shipment  will arrive in.        ��������� f     ,  We have ho hesitation in saying  that consumers get better value by  buying through regular channels of  trade, as they have, their eyes to  guide them in. buying and ample protection if the wares should turn out  .to.-be.-p-ther than represented.  Our office is in constant recipt ot  complaints from alleged victims o.  Individual shippers. In general we  believe these shippers honest and not  deserving of the censure given them  by disappointed, consumers. During  five years' experience we have concluded that this method of .distribution is a failure and only results in  giving the impression that all berries  from the province are arriving in bad  condition. Such is not the case. It  is seldom that a complaint is made  when pre-cooled berries are shipped  in refrigerator cars. Of course all  I..C. L. shipped-,berries do not arrive  in bad condition, but the proportion  ie too great for us to encourage it.  v^t������^m<m������a^<n>mmm>  ���������  '';-  A Hint to the Wise  If you are contemplating* an*-,  painting or inside decorating,  don't be fooled by offers or a  "cheap job."

Freize was taken  over by Mr. Goode of Lethbridge.  Mr. Goode has now sold out and the  premises occupied by a Grocerteria  from the string managed by Mr. Jenkins. '  The Fr'ico string of Grocerterias  have taken over- tlie prem'L-es vacated by M,r. Jenkins.  ' Several new fruit stands have  started including ,Mr. A. Harvey of  the Western Market, who is handling  Priti&h Columbia fruit almost exclus-  vely and is working up a nice business. '   -  The first B. C. Strawberries arrived a week ago last Friday. They  were consigned to the Vernon Fruit  Company and sold for $6.00 per  ci ate. . Prices slumped immediately  owing to the soft condition in which  all the early berries were arriving.  Hood Rivers were not up to the  usual standard���������while-the pack' was  good, they too were soft and many*  were jobbed.  ! Hood River Strawberries have  .completely cleaned up in' Calgary.  Some of them were jobbed as low  as $2.00 per crate. We examined  one or two hallocks of these berries  and found them decidedly faced.. The  '4x4 finish on top were the .only berries of that size in- the packet, most  of the-remainder being nubbins.'We  ���������mention this to show that all pao'Js  from the other sde of the line are not  perfect.

Dur-  ing'the early part'oJ'the season many  growers picked green.in the hope oi'  getting top prices, but they found  that immature 'stuff would not sell.

"The fruit branch strongly urges  .strawberry growers to give, more attention tp the picking, packing and  ���������hipping of their fruit.

When the regular noon freight  train was slowing down to unload  wayside freight at Vye, in some unaccountable manner, the unfortunate  man lost his; balance and fell beneath the moving cars and was terribly crushed.  The late James Weatherhead was  67 years of age, a resident of Vancouver and had followed railroading  for many years. He is survived ' by-  a wife and one son of Vancouver and  five married daughters all residing  away from home.  Tlie funeral was held in Vancouver  on Wednesday, under the auspices of  Pacific Division No. 267 of the Order  of Railway Conductors.
