Today one of the sights of the city of Victoria, to  which thousands of tourists are driven each year, is known as  the Butchart Gardens. These are private,: grounds, but,so beautiful are they, and so hospitable are Mr. and Mrs. Butchart, fens  of thousands of Victoria's visitors and citizens enjoy them each  season  Words  failed the eastern editors and their wives on their  visit to these gardens last Sunday morning, a week ago, whither  they were taken as guests of the Victoria newspapermen. The  sunshine was bright and mellow, a slight breeze cleared and  cooled the atmosphere; wide, beautifully paved- roads led  through miles of home grounds and small fruit orchards. Seventy or eighty autos driven by Victoria citizens, members of the  Automobile Club, followed the sightseeing cars to Butchart's  Gardens. The trip from Victoria was most enjoyable. When  the cars unloaded at the gardens and the 400 or more newspaper  people dropped into the shady nooks or revelled in the gorgeous  beauty of the sunshine and flowers, it was to many like being  chopped into a corner of paradise.  Mr. and Mrs. Butchart threw open their home to the visitors  and it was herethe.inspirational climax came. Tears of joy came  to the eyes of hundreds;\hearts o'erflowed'.with'fee'ling as they  gT.zed in dumb admiration upon the magnificent coloring effects  ot' floral massed beauty.  There was an atmosphere of service.and of Godlike fellowship in the surroundings. One's admiration for the flowers gave  way before the greater splendour and freedom of the characters  of Mr. and Mrs. Butchart, who conceived and carried out the idea  of transforming old lime stone quarries into these sunken gardens of such inspiration arid beauty; a sermon in every bush; an  inspiration and a divine influence at every turn of the road or  pathway and in every flower.  --'   Raspberries "will  take many years  to catch up with possible 'markets.

The weekly newspaper editor is  no respecter of persons and'his personal columns are open to  the fifth and sixth hundred as well as to the chosen four, for we  hold out a welcome hand to the stranger and by a little paragraph here and a reference there help him to feel happy and contented under new skies.  "The influence of the weekly press may not be noticeable  Lut it is there, and the great secret of it is the personal touch.  "The men who are behind the weekly newspapers of Canada are earnest, sincere, God-fearing men. They are not sanctimonious kill-joys, but they know that righteousness exalteth a  nation and they are always to be found supporting wholeheartedly every progressive moral movement.  "The weekly press and the daily each have their separate  duties to perform, and f think that they are trying to perform  tl.em to the very best of their abiliy. We weekly newspaper men  are proud of the daily press of Canada, and we are proud of the  men wlio are connected with it.

The ad  vocates for daylight saving will  point out that in England the econ  omy in coal consumption effected by  daylight saving during the summer  months amounted to $2,500,000,  whereas the dairy farmers of ' the  middle west protest that the morning  dews and the natural milking time for  cows cannot be regulated by clock,  while in the North-West where the  summer sun shines eighteen or twenty hours a day the mother of seven  children wishes to goodness that the  , darkness and the hour for bed time  came twice as soon and lasted twice  as long���������what she wants i* a dark  ness-saving law.  The demand  for daylight savinp  however, is most insistent in  East  ; ern Canada and the Eastern State?  and for every insistent demand ther-  isrusually a real reason.   The reasd.  ������������������-   apparently    is    that    the   So-calleo  standard  time  in  force in  the are;  in question varies considerably fron  the mean sun time upon which th-  actual length and intensity of day  light is based.   "Standard time is ���������*  convenient artifice established in ord  er to seeure uniform time for neigh  boring communities or places.    Tht-  nun is travelling from East to Wes'  and .the noon hour originally travel  led with it,_ but it was found advis  able to fix definite areas in whicl-  the   noon    hour   and    other   hourf  should remain the same for the con  venience  of  the  operation  of  railroads and telegraphs and the,transaction of business wherein contracts  involved definite  time limits.  Such standard  time  was  adopted  . for the United States in 1883 on the  initiative. of the American  Railway  Association, and as the time of the  civilized world is by-general consent  based  on  Greenwich,  England,  the  meridians  selected   for  the  division  of the various standards were fixed  at.the 60th, 75th, 90th,  105th  and  120th   degrees   west   of   Greeriwich.  Atlantic standard time theoretically  .  extended from the 60th tq the 75th  .meridian and Eastern standard time  ffbm.the 75th to the 90th meridian;  Central .standard time from the 90tb  to. 105th;   Mountain  standard   time  from the   105th   to   120th,   west of  which   was   Pacific   standard time.  These   times  were  adopted   by  law  ina number of the individual States,  but municipalities have not all followed suit as public sentiment and  habits proved more potent factors hi  fixing the time standards for locali-f  ties than have State Statutes.  Prince Edward Island and Nova  Scotia, on the Eastern boundary of  Atlantic time zone, have used that  time for thirty years or more, but  it was not until 1903 that New  Brunswick, which was in closer contact with the New England States,  finally by Act of its legislature  adopted Atlantic standard time officially for that Province.  The situation was complicated,  particularly in the Eastern States  and Eastern Canada, by the railways themselves, where in actual  practice it was found necessary to  fix the time-breaking zones at terminals or division points. As branch  lines have been constructed, the carriers have extended on these the  standard time observed at the junction point or upon the main line.  There are instances where the  branch lines radiate out of one zone  into another, thus introducing a time  et variance with the theoretical time  of that zone. The contention of the  railways is that time should be  changed only at the points at the  termini of train dispatching districts  ���������when trainjCfews are relieved: They  elaim it te hazardous to require train  ������ews to change from one standard  /tin* II  f*.*/e*i9  operating time to another during a  trick of duty, and impracticable to  have train dispatchers operate trains  under two standards efttme.  Conflict between the States which  have adopted Eastern standard time  based strictly upon the 75th to 90th  meridians and the railways which  have found this to be not sufficiently  elastic, has naturally resulted, as for  instance in the ��������� State of Vermont,  when a Bill has been introduced into  the House of Representatives in  which one section reads:-1- :  "A common  carrier   engaged  in commerce within this .state or '  between this state and any other  state   or    territory   shall    not  change its   time  schedules   for  the movement of trains within  the state in order to accommodate itself to conditions outside  the state arising by reason of  the adoption of any other standard of time by any other state."  Then again the demand for daylight  saving  has complicated   matters.    The  United States Congress  last year passed an Act which defeated  the general adoption of the  proposed daylight   saving,   whereas  the States of New York and; Massachusetts adopted daylight saving,  and.the hew  England railroads, in  order  to reconcile the conflict  between the Federal Act and the State  Acts   of   Massachusetts   and   New  York, ran their trains on standard  time, but one hour earlier than they  otherwise   would.     The   Canadian  railways. fell   int������   step   with the  American railways, and in doing so  were  supported by the municipalities  of  many  of the  larger  cities  which had adopted daylight saving.  Now it is noticeable that the demand for adoption of daylight saving time by the larger towns and  cities is almost exclusively confine*  to Eastern Canada,   New   England  SUtes  and the City of New  fork  On examination, this.appears lb bi  du������ to the fact that Eastern Stand-  ard time which theoretically extends  only between the 75th and 90 meridians   has.   been   carried   in  actual  practice a very considerable distanc������  east of the 75th degree.    According  to this  meridian  places   all  of  the  Province of Quebec,* and all of New  England,  New  York City and part  of New York State in the Atlantic  should belong to the Atlantic Tim������  Zone,  and  if  this  time   were  reinstated  there  would' be  little  or  n������  call for daylight saving now.    The  railways have carried Eastern  time  too  far   east,   and   the   States   and  Provinces and   Municipalities  which  have adopted the same time for the  sake of uniformity are realizing that  this does not correspond with natural lime.    On  the  railways,  Eastern  standard time is carried from (Jaspe  in Eastern Quebec to Fort  William  in Ontario, a distance, of 25 degrees  or 1200' miles instead of the 711.79  miles of 15 degrees.  On eastern standard time as at  present maintained in New England  and Quebec, the sun rises from May  to September two to three hours before the average person is about in  the morning, and sets at an equally  unserviceable hour. Hence the nat*  ural demand for daylight saving  legislation in these parts. If New  England, Quebec and the'Maritime  Proemce . were to adopt Atlantis  standard time, which is their natural  specific time, they would save -hundreds of thousands of dollars all the  year round for fuel and light, and  incidentally the ajritarion for da  light saving would be buried  oblirion,  The 192J season is started. Strawberries are rolling in carlots.. Shipping  is at least 9 days ' earlier than last  year.'  The out look, for marketing tho  fruit crop is with but a few exceptions bright. The crop in , n. c. will  be "a record one in small fruits.    .  The  rjnia!!   fruit  marketing situation in complicated  by thcabnormal  state of the jam    making    industry  The reaction from the high price    of  both fruit, and sugar has had a serious effect on    that    industry./ The  wholesale trade'were heavy losers', as  well as the manufacturers, and business confidence has  been  temporarily shattered at the banks.    The result is that the jam makers' will not  venture to' pack anything  like  what  the market will take.    Berries have  been planted to uicet . the ' war-time  demands   for   jam,   and   instead     of  finding a ready sale at the    factory  they will have to be shipped to    the  prairies in the raw    state or   pulped  and frozen for the export jam'trade.  The   same  condition   exists   in     the  United  States and Eastern    Canada.  The prairie  housewife  will  have    a  chance to stock her larder with jam  at a price that she can afford to pay  and still be under, the market value  that jalms will " sell at ' next   spring.  Prices will be a-   little better    than  last year's prices to the grower.    We  note with pleasure that Western Jpb-  ders  are  co-operating  with   shippers  to secure as wide a ��������� distribution    as  possible.       This    is       commendable  action and will mean a lot to berry  producers in tiding them over a critical season. * Organization will do    a  lot, to help distribution to    outlying  points that have done without strawberries  for' several  years.     The  situation at present is that the growers  have only the organization  in.B. C.  between them and disaster.    It will  be recognized more   every    year    by  B. C-"-shippers that approaching this  market   through   one   central   distribution ia the sane and safe way    to  protect producers.

NATIONAL APPLE SHOW  LONDON, Nov.  AT  4,  1921.  Extract    from.    J.    Forsyth    Smith's  Letter of May :$(>���������Immediate  Action Wanted-  There is a big demand for pulped  berries^on the British market this  year. This may somewhat offset the  want of a local demand for jam berries.  One Vancouver concern offered 7(5  per lb. for 75 tons of strawberries  for jam making.' We-think that this  price is ridiculously low," and^if the  growers are'compelled to accept it a  reaction will follow. If a lair price  is not paid it would be better for-the  Industry to seek an insurance against  loss by erecting a .factory of their  own.  Growers must expect organized  buying by the jam manufacturers  of Canada, but such a price as offered  can only haye one result.  PICKING PRICES FOR  BERRIES FOR   1921  It will be noticed by the following  table' of prices that the B. C. berry  growrers association are not working  in exact harmony:  Gordon Head association will pay  35<i! per crate and 10^ bonus.  Saanich association will pay 50^  and  no bonus..  Burnaby association will pay 30������  net.  Hatzic association will pay 50<* and  154  bonus'.  Hood River paid 34 <? and 2<������ bonus  17<i   for   packing,   3^   bonus'.  REACTION  We note that the jam manufacturers of the United States and Canada  have organized and have mapped out  a policy to save the jam making industry. We believe that this organization will eventually be supported  by the growers in a financial way as  "t is an open secret that banks' will  not make advances unless upon approved sales and this is impossible  without protecting clauses and this is  impossible without protecting clauses  in view of the heavy losses suffered  by wholesalers last year. Wo do not  agree that the policy adopted by the  manufacturers' is sound. They will  manufacture so little that a starved  market is sure to result and consequently higher prices.  The inquiries for pulp berries from  Great Britain may result in heavy  sales being made by shippers to British jam manufacturers. Should this  occur we anticipate competition on  the Canadian market by Canadlan-  ?rown berries manufactured in Britain.  We warn manufacturers-to bownre  of reaction in their apparent safety-  first, policy.      \ ���������������  DOMINION DAY   AT  HAMMOND  For the first time Hammond is to  have a big celebration on JuJy 1st.  For weeks preparations have been  under way to make the occasion a  great array of joyous features.  The occasion of'this is primarily  the opening of the new Hammond  theatre which will be unrivaled in  size, cost and arrangement of any  audience hall from the Royal city to  "1 think that    this    Show ' offers  special opportunities for the advertising of Canadian  fruit, and that our  exporters  should ��������� make  evory  effort  to take full advantage of it.  .   "In addition to individu/il growers,  or growers' associations entering for  the various prize  winninj," classes';   1  think that-the Province and. rJi3 principal   exporters  should   secure  space  for fully' representative exhibits    on  a  non-competitive   basis',  and   I     do  think you will not make any mistake  in using all your influence to secure  action  in  this  direction.     The  Show  will be    largely attended    and there  will  be special opportunities for the  distribution of advertising literature  and  for general propaganda.       I  regard  this exhibition  as' being in  altogether a different category from an  advertising point,  from  the previous  shows  of the    Royal     Horticultural  Society, which, wore mainly plate exhibits.  "It is particularly important that  we should be strongly represented in  the prize winning classes, and in  the British Empire Section, where we  enter into competition with British  Apple Growers. While the latter are  far from being formidable from a  commercial point of view, there is no  doubt that they will be in a position  to put up some very fine exhibits and  it will be very unfortunate if the first  prize in "this section shall go to theni.  "I think it necessary for some Canadian representative to be in charge  of the exhibit.  "I would suggest that you urge  imediate action as far as non-competitive exhibits are concerned, in  securing space, as the space outside  of, that allowed to the prize winning  exhibits is' limited, and is being taken  up by various Dominions for general  display, and by commercial organizations. If at all possible, space  arrangements should be made within  a  month."  Kamloops.  When the theatre company  launched the scheme, some of the  citizens thought it quite beyond  their reach, but, now, though not  quite finished the opinion is fully expressed that the town shall prove  worthy of such an asset, nor think it  an iota too large or in advance of the  demand.  See posters for further announcements.  The theatre is built on one of the  most commanding Kites in the town  ���������on Lome Avenue-��������� and, directly  facing the Fossett Hall. The seating capacity of the main floor will  be over eight hundred���������-nearly 200  more could find room at the back.  The balcony will seat 200, and. has  a,t either dressing eide a large  dressing room.  The stage is' spacious, will be well  lighted, and, at right end left wing  well-planned .dressing rooms are to  be found.

DVKIXCJ   liOAKI)  IS  KOl'XI)  lilAHLE  Chief Justice Hunter has handed  down judgment in the case of Morrison vs. De.wdney Dyking Commissioners in favor of the plaintiff for  $3 600   damages.  The trial of the action took twenty  one days and involved two trips to  the scene of. the dispute by the  judge and   cousel.  'Iho action was brought as' the result of flooding of the Wlorrision  lands during the high wafer of July,  1020.  His Lordship finds that, the original damage was caused by the bursting through of the water from a  canal built across the hinds' to  carry off the flood water from Hatzic Prairie, the Morrison lands being  naturally   protected.  He finds that the walls of this canal were not sufficiently strong to  Avithstand the pressure and that  this' should have been within the  knowledge of the commissioners'  engineer.  The water "seeped through these  walls, which should have "been backed with clay,-and (hey became weakened and undermined. He finds  fbiil it was the duty of the commissioners lo have taken all proper and  sufficient  precautions,  and   dial   Ibis  was  not 'done.  A large array of counsel and export engineers wore in attendance  rliiring the trial, as well as a considerable number of interested listeners from Uewdney district, The  result, of the trial has boh''looked for  ward with great interest by the. in-  nauie looks in -print. A-l habitants . of the district and the  name  never packsva,    wallop'judgment    may    have    far-reaching  reason of the bank of this' canal  being burst. They knew triable condition of the soil, they knew that it  was merely quicksand on which they  'were building the bank- of this  canal���������at all events of such a  nature and therefore, in my opinion  it was all the more incumbent on  them to so construct the bank as' to  prevent disaster arising from that  scource.  "I am quite willing to grant that  it was not for the commissioners to  anticipate insuring against events,  such for instance- as the destruction of this canal by a bolt of  lightouijng or a waterspout, or anything of that kind, but I am equally-  of the opinion that sand-bQils?Vand  rat-holes are not acts of God and do  not form.a good defence to an action  of this kind.  "It must be remembered that the  provisions of the statute are not  compulsory. The petitioners 'who  initiated the building of this dyke  were given the privilege by the  statute for their own benefit, they  were given authority by the statute  to expropriate the property of their  neighbors', that is to say, the plain-  tiffs in this suit. They chose to  exercise I hat privilege for their own  benefit.  Someone reads the Abbotsford  Post sometimes.
