 _v  si.  With wWch is incorporated "The Huntingdon Star"  Vol. XX., No. 7  A.BBOTSFORD, B, C. FRIDAY, JUNE 25, 1920  $1.00 p>er Year  =c  You Will Have JVo Vote Unless  ..  Your Name is Put on the lloll  By July 15th Next.  The Voters' List of the Province of "'British Columbia has  been cancelled and all names  of persons formerly on the list  ���������will have no vote at the next  election unless they register before the 15th of July, 1920.  In other words there is not  now any voters' list for the province of British Columbia.  A new list has to be mae up  and of course "every person who  is entitled wants toc,vote on the  Prohibition referendum when i*;  comes up for consideration in  October or " perhaps before.  You want a vote if an election  is to be he'ld in the province this  fall or next spring. If so yo-i  had better hike off and get your  name on the list. Register, Register!, And do it-, now!  If you have the idea that because your name was on the old  list that it would be automaticr  ally on the new list'get that idea  out of your head. It is wrong.  You have-a. chance, to vote  possibly three times if you get  your name on the Voters' List  before July 15th. The three,  chances are the Prohibition Referendum; maybe a provincial  election and possibly,a Dominion election.  ' DON'T LEAVE IT UNTIL  the last moment, and tlien for  get as you will be sorry ,  BIG SALE OF BERRIES  TO AMERICAN FIRM  A sale comprising 500 tons " of  straAvberries and raspberries has been  completed toy the Fruit and Mercantile Exchange of Hatzic Avitlf the  National Canning Company of Seattle  This is reported Lo be the largest  single sale of berries that has been  putt lirough on tho Canadian side.  AL the present time it is understood  the berries Ayill be taken to Sumas,  Wash.., and processed then shipped Lo  Ucllingham.  Thi3 fruit is being handled in crates  which will insure the buyers of exceptional quality, and establishes a  precedent in British Columbia where  the bucket has always been used.  Thee hunge of containers will mean a  better product from this district in  the future which will place our berries in a more favorable light among  the various markets throughout the  country.  The F. & M. Exchange were very  fortunate in making tlie contract as  tho local markets were unable to absorb the strawberries, and it -was  seemingly necessary, to seek a foreign  market for the disposal of the crop.  ���������PIC-NIC JULY  1ST  AT McCRIMMON PARK  The G. W. V.,A. picnic on July 1st  in McCrimmon's Orchard promises  to be a grand affair, at'which the  returned men, their \yives, sweethearts, and friends will have a grand  outing.  Sports for the children will begin  at 11 o'clock and promises to be a  , day Avlien every bo/y, and girl Avill be  '' able to Avin something for their taking part in the races, etc.  Autos have been arranged to carry  to the picnic grounds all those Avho  Jiind it convenient to go that Avay,  A grand big ball will take place in  Abbotsford in the evening, Avith good  music andfie floor.  Have you registered yet?  CROP   PROSPECTS  FROM  THE  C. P. R. WINDOW AND HEARSAY  . On a trip from Toronto west on",  naturally gets >a glimpse of the crop  prospects tor the coming year, and  passengers discussing local , conditions drop many a remark in regard  to local conditions in the various  parts of the provinces.  Ten days ago Western Ontario  fanners around Toronto, Guelph,  Stratford, Hamilton; Brantford. London and-Sam ia Avere much concerned  about rain. ' The crop Avas several  Aveeks behind, some of it scorched on  account'of want of moisture. ' Fruit  prospects did not appear to be in the  best condition for a bumper crop. It  is understood that rain in parts ��������� has  since relieved the situation, but even  at that the grain crop Avill be short.  It Avas estimated that hay Avould be  $75 a ton tihs year. North of Toronto Avas much 'in. the same condition.  In Manitoba the grain east and  Avest of Winnipeg looked particularly  good. Very encouraging reports A\Tiare  heard of the crop just east of Winnipeg. ��������� Reports come from the Dauphin district that as usual the crop'  will be a"bumper. A resident of  that district Avas heard to say tiiat for  tAventy years the farmers had nevei  missed ia crop. Land is selling at a  very high price, being bought principally by local farmers.  The eastern part of Saskatchewan  shows good prospects. Around Saskatoon and Avest for some distance it  needs rain. In places the wind has  blown'-the-crop away where'the soil  ���������is'i'ight. "���������'.'"'     '���������'-'"��������� ^' ������������������'--���������  There is abundance of rain in Alberta east >of Wetaskln and around  Edmonton, where the mud on the  roads is something to -talk about at  this time of the year. In Edmonton  Saturday last autos carried the full  winter equipment of winter chains.  A couple of Aveeks Avarmth is what is  needed. Some-of the grain was under water of recent rains. South to  Calgary loked well until near Dids-  bury,' Avhen the crops again suffered  for wiant of .rain.  In southern Alberta report has it  that even under best conditions from  now on there will be only half a crop.  First came the Avind that cleared the  fields of the growing grain, but within the past ten days there has been  considerable" rain. East of Calgary  at. the beginning of June there Avas  "abundance of moisture.  Revelstoke and the disLrict around  Salmon Arm looks excellent.  SOON HE OPEN FOR  BUSINESS  A visit to the Milk Condensory at  DeLair's shows that an institution is  being built that Avill mean much to  the dairymen of Sumas and Matsqui  in particular and to the dairymen of  the Fraser Valley as a whole that will  be hard to .estimate the value of.  As the building nears completion one  realizes, that at an early date it will  be a busy  centre.  The plant Avill be capable of handling 75 tons'of milk per da|yi Avith the  most modern'machinery made, and it  is said that nowhere in Canada is  there a more up-tordate plant of its  kind. ���������"  The building has been1 constructed  of lumber from the local mills, and in  conversation Avith.'lhe engineer this'  morning he said that noAvhere could  better lumber be purchased and the  local pride and patriotism of the lumber company resulted in the delivery  of the very best article that money  can bu|yi, and it Avas an easy matter  to build a most substantial building.  An excellent stream of Avater is on  the premises, and Engineer Murray  who has charge of the outside work  of the plant is very proud of it.; It  is a necessa'riy factor in keeping 'the  plant cool.  The C. P. R. branch line to the  plant will be completed in a few days  THE   REPUBLICAN   NOMINEE  Don't forget to register your vote  before the loth of July), if you avjjiu  Lo vote on the prohibition question.  GOVERNMENT  CEASES  AVORK  ON  AVENUE  Ocav Withdrawn Before Work Is  Nearly Completed���������City To Complete Job.  The provincial government crew of  men Avho have been working on Duris-  muir Avenue have been withdrawn  taking the machinery and tools with  litem. - The government has failed to  cairry out its promise to do the necessary grading gravelling. In fact  the road at the present time scorns  to be in a particularly bad mess, and  possibly much of the Avork already  done will have to be undone.  The City Council under tho circumstances' intends to go on Avith tho  work and complete it.���������Cumberland  Islander.  Last Aveek at Ilaney Premier John  Oliver is reported as having said he  had more trouble Avith Maple Ridge  than with any othor six municipalities  Maybe he has. There is always a  reason and the above would indicate  that. Maple Ridge is not the only  place that has a quarrel Avith the  Oliver methods of road Avork. It is  just possible that other localities in  the province could bo instanced where  the- premier is not giving satisfaction  in the spending of public money.  Mr. Eric Weir has charge of the K.  K. Garage and Avith a pleasant smile ^  keeps Avorking awajy, characteristic of ,  a competent Avorkman  able to  give  the public satisfaction.  EVERBODY has to register if they  want to vote on the prohibition question.

A. Bates, Editor and Proprietor*  FRIDAY,. JUNE 25, 1920.  You Should Register���������  The cancellation of the provincial Voters' List necessitates  the patriotic duty of every man  and woman entitled to vote to  register on' or before the 15th  of July, so that in case of the  Prohibition referendum, or a  provincial or dominion election  the voter can .register his opinion on the ballot.  It is the duty of, all to vote  and in order to do so the necessary preliminaries should be  gone through within the prescribed'.time���������until July 15th in  this case.  Th  e meeting at Haney on  Saturday evening is characteristic of our premier and the  misrepresentative of Dewdney  yUling���������John Oliver. Abuse of  the man who has the privilege  of voting is mighty poor principle, and shows that the man  who does it has used the electorate as a stepping stone to  further ambitions.  Reove Ansell is a man who  is highly respected as a public  man in the municipality of  Maple Ridge, witness the fact  that for at least a dozen years  he has represented the municipality as councillor and. later as  reeve. He is always considered a fair-minded man, at home  in his. own municipality, and a-  buse of such a man by one who  had to leave his own riding to  be elected a member of parliament, is certainly not in good  form. It shows that Reeve  Ansell is fighting for what he  thinks is right while the bully  having the power behind him  for the time being is attempting to create a false impression.  When Premier Oliver says, "I  will say without reservation,  I have had more trouble with  Maple Pvjdge than any six municipalities in British Columbia.  I venture to say that, ^if the  government can satisfy the remaining eighty-five* municipalities it is giving reasonably  good service", he knows he is  trying to create a mighty wrong  impression. According to an  item apeparing elsewhere from  the Cumberland Islander the  municipality of Cumberland is  not satisfied. And we think we  could name a number of other  place that are not wholly satisfied. Maple Ridge may be treat  ed as well as the others, but how ���������  have the others been treated.!  Is Mission Municipality alto-|  gether satisfied?    Has Vancou  prices, everything-is away up,  but money is cheap, .common  and plentiful. ' It was never,  within the memory of the present generation wasted right  and left as it is today. A work-'  er can buy about twice as much  money with a day's work as he  ever could before. It is the  one thing that is cheap and  plentiful. But money that is  spent today goes cheaply and it  docs not buy as much as about  half its normal value. The money, that is saved is of the real  old kind, and there's nothing  wrong about it at all. Pack a  little of it aay in the savings  bank, and it keeps , perfectly  and draws interest.  Manitoba is at the present  time in the throes of a provincial election. The Norris government is on trial. The present fight is not on the old party  lines but betwee'n (the Norris  government and the, men who  are wanting power. Liberals  and Conservatives support the  government and Liberals and  Conservatives are opposed 'to  Norris.  The Manitoban takes an election very seriously and at the  present time there are many  strong men opposed to the Norris government who if party  lines were- strictly adhered to  would be supporting the government.  Ifr is a good time to hold an  election now in Manitoba, while  the wheat is growing and the  farmer has lots of time to think  things over and cast his vote after mature consideration.  Premier Norris 'is a farmer,  and so is his opponent, the leader of the opposition.

The paid up  capital of the Bank Avas enlarged  during th period by $1,400,000, representing an increase of 2 0 per cent  Not-only did the neAv capital-immediately justify itself, so far as earnings Avere concerned, bu it was accompanied byi ia groAvth in the total  volume of business which was almost sufficient to keep the ratio of  capital to assets unchanged for the  year.

Here    is'a  case  where, the fruit shipping interests of  the Pacific coast are identical,-   and.  which  could  lib satisfactorily  solved  if the problem was dealt Avith inter  nationally.

Foreign Railways and  Rates |  During December, 1919, and, January, 1920, the Italian railway* ^1-  vanccd their first-class passenger  fares 80 per cent, their second-class  fares 60 per cent, and their thiid-  class lares 50 per cent. Both Ireigut.  and passenger rates already during  the war had been advanced 30 Lo 45  per cent.  I The passenger rates of the French  'railways, two of wuicii are owuud uy  the government and all ot which are  being operated under government  'control, were "advanced 40 per cent  'during the Avar and the trcignt rates  J30 to 37 per cent. Because of the  deficits Avhich have continued to be  'incurred proposals for further advances have been under considera-  jtion.  The advances in rates on-the Austrian railways since pre-war days  jhave been enormous. The increase,  of 30 per cent made in February,  1920, made the total increases about  330 per cent.  i   In September,    1919, freight    and  passenger rates in Belgium nad been  (increased 40 to 50 per cent since pre-  Jwar times.    Further increases have  ''been made since then.  I   In   September,   1919, freight   and  passenger rates in The Netuerlantld-  were advanced 50 per cent.  I   Very  much   the   largest  advances  reported in any country have been  made in Germany, where, it is Avell  .known,' practically all the railways  are owned and operated by :he government.     Repeated   advances   were  made during the war and still further-very great advances have oeea  made since the signing ot the armistice.   The passenger rates now average about 700  per cent nigner man-  before the war, and the freight raws  about 8U0 per cent higher. ���������  I Large advances in rates have also  had to be made in many countiies  which were remote from the scat ot  hostilities. For example, in December, 1919, all freight and passcugvr  rates on tho South Africau Government railways were advanced 25 per  cent, while in August, 1019. a raise-  of 20 per cent in both freight and  pasr.cn-cr rates was made in Brazil,  and in October of (be same year  additional Increases were proposed.  Even in Australia, which was about  as remote from the :hcaire or hostilities as anv part of the world, all the  government i ail ways have Buttered  severely from the t-flects ot the war  and have had  to  make rdvancos ia  their rates. .   ,  The railway* of Croat Britain weio  placed tindor govrnment control at  the beginning ol iho war and are atlllj  being thus operated.   During the war  the  passenger   .ales  were advanced  60 per cent, while the frtlght rates  were not advanced   at  all,  and because    tho    increases    in    expenses  greatly    exceeded    the increases   In  rWs    the    government    Incurred a  " laree deficit.   To reduce or wipe out  tnis deficit advances in tho freight  rates of the  British-railways ranging  from  25  to  100  per  cent  we. e  made effective on January lo.,1*20.  and   extra    charges were   added to  rates which cover tho collection and  delivery of freight at stations as well  as Its transportation. In March 1920,  the demurrage charges Imposed for  holding a car one  day beyond the  period  oMree time  were Increased  100   per cent, i.nd   the charges   for  subsequent dajsJOO ner cej^ __,   J  ^Sflv  K.TT ^^'T^I^   JV   y't'tW Mv  ;������  PAdE FOUR,  TRIE  ABBOTSFORD  POST,  ABBOTSFOItD,  B.  d'  ��������� w.iimi \mu mWKnrtcaM  . i.wiii igrfriTMTir-^evr^.^'- i mwiini^j  *%uiDgari  aaascncescaDK'zmannezxsEcassBzaKssswfaEsen  22S23KSUXIS'  THAN THE BEEF,"PORK, VEAL and other Fresh Meats  Purchased from  WHITE & CARMICHAEL  Sumner  Successors Lo C.
