Like all 'previous colcb-  biations kol.l in the border town,  this will cover a number of entertaining features. Horse racing,  cluldrcns spouts, parades, fireworks  bower dancos and all the fun of  carnival are promised !and there is  biit little doubt about the success  which will be made of it. Sumas  has already established quite a  reputation for entertaining her  guests and through her entertainment is soemtimes a moist one,  everybody seem to go' away satisfied.,  Saturday, the 6th, has been set  aside as Canad aDay .and all cht  features of the day will be of an  international character! The In tor  national Tug-of-war will be pulled  off in the forenoon, and there wili  be International racing in the after  neoon on the new race-track which  has been specially built for the occasion out at the'City iPark. Last  ���������year Abbotsford won ithe tug-of-  war and if the boys feel like undertaking such. strenuous .^vcereise a-  ,gain, there is ho 'doubt-'of the outcome 'this year. The racing program for Canada' Day, includes  iboth running >and trotting races.  -Indian pony, races and ordinary-  pony races .are also featured and  .the purses put up are worthy of  an effort. Music will be furnished  .by military ..bands and :the orchestral music, in. the*- dance pavilliond,  promises to be of the best. There wil  be rio less than five dance pavilions  most of them, of the out of do*>r  variety through Martin's Orchestra will have their usual stand iu  the new enlarged West's <ppera  house.  The new theatre will be compiet  ed in time for the celebration and  the proprietors have made arrange  ments for a continuous vaudeville  program, the Dream.and Rose theatres will also run continuously  with varied vaudeville and motion  pictures. Several carnival-compan  ies have signified their intention of  being in Sumas for the three.big.  days and' there will b.e the usual  collection of side-shows, lemonade  and sandwich stands, .and the hot  dog joints will.be, much in evidence. ���������'. ���������     '���������. ��������� .���������  The judges in the race met v.  be selected from both local and  visiting horsemen and judges in  the parade will also be selected  from among the visitors. Abbotsford is getting ready for Canada  Day.arid there is some talk of hir ���������  ing a guard to look after the town  while the-rest of us go down and  take in the 'sights.   '  TUG-OFrWAR TEAM  The Abbotsford Tug-of-war team  wish this paper to announce thai:  they will be willing to go to Sumas on Canada Day'or any.other  day of the celebration, always pro-  \ided that a good sum is put up  to pull for; It was. last year that  the rope was carried home to Ao-  botsford announcing the victory.  This year the boys think they can  do it again,, and if they go over  they intend to take a good team  with them-ranother rope they must  have this year. -  .     .

SYSTEM  What is the matter with the'eom-  mittee elected some time ago 'lo  look into the matter,.of a- system  of water works for the-town ?     ��������� ��������� I  A reference to ' the events* that  took place at a recent meeting of  the Board of Trade 'shows that a  committee was appointed to go  to Victoria to confer with the gov  eminent on the question of assistance towards "a scheme , of water  works and fire protection for the  town of Abbotsford. )  ' It is needless for this paper oi  any person in the town to discuss  the question of a water system  that will serve the purpose of ib  sisting in fire protection and also  serve the purpose of the home; out.  .here seems no organized method  *)f setting about the.'matter. TiiO'  .dea of appointing a' committee'lo  accompany the representative ol  the district to Victoria to confer  with the government was on tht  part of the Board of Trade, an excellent scheme, but'it does not appear to have materialized."  There is bound to be some u.-c-  .planation at the next meeting of  the Board of Trade wh ythe committee has no report to make, il  is certain some one has to shoulder the blame.   Several of the com-  it  mittee were seen this week, ana  none of them knew anything about  it.* .They all appeared to bewailing for someone who was sup|,oo  ed to make arrangements with the  government for a date for a con  ference. Those who have '-'read  this paper will .know the -pel'soii"  referred to.        ���������.

Why' that if we all pull together  that we can make the little town  of Abbotsford one of .the most imr  portant towns in the Fraser. Valley, if we all pull together. Almost  every time the editor takes a walk  around the town, meeting the bua-  ' iness men and others in the course  of a day's hunting for news, does  he meet with contradictory .opinions on the public matters that af-  feet the town's interests. This is  a good sign if properly directed,  but the only thing in the town that  is lacking is for someone to take  the reigning hand and guide the  destinies of the town in a mannei  which will bring credit to the town  and above all make it a prosperous burg. Here is an opening lor,  someone who cares not whatotheis  say but convinces people that he  is right.   Who will the leader be?  ABBOTSFORD AGRICULTURAL  FAIR  It is about time that some" move)  was made towards getting the list  of,prizes ready for the Abbotsford  Fair this fall. It does not do to  let matters go too long, so as to  have matters hurried. A number  of the other Associations in thjs  Valley have their prize list already  in hand in order to have^it in '  shape for the date of the fair.  '��������� (Simply 'because there is .some  misunderstanding between the gov  einment and those appointed to  secure the charter, that is no reaa-  son why the Fair should not be  pioceeued with. Last year's Fair  was a success in every way and  without government assistance.  There are juat as many supporiwr*  behind the Abbotsford Fair tnis  year as there was last year. Wny  not the committee proceed,  NO ROAD AFTER ALL -,,  There waa a reporc this vveeit  tnuL tae properly u������v*hjj.-8 were uu-  \.Hung to give me land to enanie  ��������� tne cuancii co gaaeue uie road ru*-  ierreu to in tne foiiowmg motion  passeu   uy cue AiuiuijUi council ut  tnat a road be gazetted between  tne Harrop and Ben Nelson property through Ware property and  Abbotsford Timber and( Trading  Company land, to be used as a  public road, 66 feet wide."  - It is not likely that the Matsqui  council will purchase the property  fiom the owners in order to enable  them to gazette the road, as the  road is for the benefit of the settlers. Of course the blockade may  only be a rumor, but th������ parties  concerned have the privilege of  denying the rumor.  THE   MARKET.  At the Westminster market Friday last, the fish stalls shared with  the poultry section the honor of  atttacting the greatest number orf  buyers. The supply was,unusually large, and included more vaii-  etieB than ever. Considerable attention was drawn to a number  ber of shad caught in .the Fraset.  These fish are v������ry rare, beia#  caught only about this time of tha  year and then in small numbeu  many buyers looked on-them with  suspicion engendered by lack of  acquaintance, there were a. sufficient number who. knew their claims  to distinction ,to buy them up rapidly at 15 cents. Boundary Bay  crabs had a good sale at two for  a quarter, and there was the usual demand for spring ^1^0,1*,  Dolly Vardon trout, sturgeon, hei-  rings and smelts.  The meat market reached pioo-  ably its lowest ebb today, when  there was neither beef nor mutton  available, only the smallest supply  of pork, and a; fair supply of veal.  The buyers waited anxiously on  the coming of the steamer Transfer in the hope that there would  be some beef on her, but wt-rc  doomed to dissappointment, only  two calves being discharged. Th**  prices stiffened a fraction, poik  changing hands at 14 cents and  veal commanding 13 to 13>ic according to quality.  Potatoes are still falling, and the  supply which poured into the market today indicates that the farmers are now unloading .their stock  before the new growth arrives in  quantity, and there is every prospect of the bottom falling out of  the market entirely^ -As it is, a  quantity was offered ot $25 per  ton, and while others were holding  out for $28, there did not seem to  be any buyers at that Hjfure. ,  Of this season's produce in vegetables and small fruits, the newest arrival is the plebian gooseberry, which sold readily at 15c  a box'. These were of the cook-  inlg variety, and judging from the  remarks of buyers, gooseberry pic  will be a favorite dish for some  days to come. Rhubarb was present in better quantity, and stravr-i  berries were also more plentiful  selling at 15c per box. Lettuce/  fctill appeared to be the only representative of the vegetable  kingdom, the expected appearance  of other spring vegetables having  apparently been delayed b/ tin  week's h*a\'y raias,  Eggs   were plentiful    and    me'  f with    a   ready   demand,   but   the  ���������price remained firm at '6b cents retail and 28, to, 30 cents  wholesale.  Butter sold at the same price of  35 cents to 40 cents.  As the season advances the number and variety of cut flowers increases,   and   there   was   a   great  display, iiiai-i-in^   a   h^^^^xl  j.      liant color in the otherwise sombre precincts of the market building. lJot plants were also good  sellers, as were hanging baskets  Japanese tubs, and various other  forms.  me market was mostly a poultry affair and ss a coupie. of  thousand birds were offered, uie  price hit the down grade early jnu  kept on going down.

FOR  MISSION.  .(From Fraser Valley Record)  Another business house has seen  the advantage of locating at "Mission City, the Empress Company  of Vancouver having leased a  building on'Home Avenue. At the  expenditure of some hundreds of  dollars the company have laid oat  a plant for pulping the fruit, and,  when the growers produce enough  a jam making plant will be put  in.  At present the pulp is shipped  to Vancouver where at the company's works a plant of the higft-  est possible perfection produce1,  the well known "Empress Jams."  Mr., F. Baker, tho manager, said  "We have only been open for just-  over, a week but we have shipped  over two tonB of pulped fruit, wo  find even now the premises tjoo  small and next year .we must-on-  large. Our contracts were signed  as far back as last October for the.  fiuitto be delivered in pails which  we supply, the fruit must be nulled. On Vancouver Island wheia  we buy extensively, when the^grovv  ers pick for us they always deliver  the goods hulled. We have, a distributing house in Calgary and another in Prince Rupert, both of  which have had to refuse orders  they could not fulfil. Mission  fruit is alright and we'can take all  that can be supplied."  The- Company's prices at present are Strawberries 7 cents per  lb.; Gooseberries 8c,-.Black berries  5%c; Black currants, 8%c. ���������  Poet���������"I called to see if you had  an opening for me,"1  Editor���������"YeB, there's one right  ���������behind you; shut it as you go  out, please."

Diseased people bnthed in it and  drank of It. and. those of uneasy conscience washed'away their sii\s In it.  The water was carried away-In Jugs,  phials, and bottles,"and a brisk trade  sprang up under the aegis of an-astute  young Bengalee in'selling the "holy  water" in all parts of the city* at as  much' as   $2   a   phial.     News' of 'the  holy- perfume . came .to..the   ears   of  Messrs.   Bose   and   Co.,   scent   manufacturers, who took a professional Interest In the' matter and sent a connoisseur-to Investigate.

The police examined    the    pool    and- found    that  ���������several broken bottle of the oils had  been .thrown -Into ,it. .. This  was   the  explanation  of  the holy  smell.    The  young  Bengalee   and' a   carter,   suspected- of having stolen the oils, suddenly  vanished   but  were  found  and  ��������� arrested  later.

But the time came when this was  changed, and European nations began  to see In- the southern shores of the  Mediterranean fields for trade, and  then room' for expansion; -and so  northern Africa Is becoming the prize  of Europe,  The growth of Italian Influence and  commerce In Tripoli dates from 1878,  when the treaty was concluded that  brought to a close the Russo-Turkish  war. Italy, claims that It was. then  understood .that she should have the  right'of a "pacific penetration of Tripoli." The right has been exercised.  Italian colonies have grown up, and  Italy's commercial interests- there  become considerable.  A Budding Mark Twain  A boy in Oklahoma City submitted  the following essay on the ship of the  desert:���������  "A cannimal is a sheep of the  desert. It is called a bacteria,' because it has bumps on^its back. The  cannimal is very patient, and will lie  down and .die without a groan, but  when'it is angry it'gets its back up,  which is called taking the hump. The  shepherds of the cannimals is called  Arabs. When they live in towns they  are called. street Arabs.'. When the  cannimal goes on a journey it-drinks  as much as .it can to last .for many  days. Such animals are called aqui-  ducks. Those that cannot carry  enough are called lnebrates."  The boy is eight years old. His  teacher says he is.an ignoramus. His  father says, he is a young Mark Twain.  Franklin's Manners  Frauklin collected thirteen principles to cover the small amenities of  daily'.life. Each week he picked out  one and practised it diligently, thus  creating a habit. It took three months  to cover them all. Each year he practised each one four full weeks. He  kept this, up for many years. The  uncouth Franklin of early manhood  who found fault with his wife for  giving him a silver spoon and a china  bowl for his. bread and milk-instead  of ������. .pewter .spoon-"and earthenware  crock, developed into the statesman  and man of the world who won the  respect of Englishmen, the admiration  of Frenchmen, and the gratitude of  Americans.  Battling  Between   North   nnd   South  Shores of Mediterranean, Began  Many Ages Ago with Africans  First In the Aggressive.  In- the long ago days the nations  and' tribes- possessing the African, or  southern, shores of the Mediterranean  contended with the peoples *of the  European, or northern, shores, not  only for European territory, but for  the mastery of what was then the  civilized .world.- Just, as Rome was  aettlng \out upon her career of ex-  panalon, which finally led her to absolute control of the western world,  she encountered a rival In Carthage,  ���������the Beatofwho^'*- power- was not far  from the, spot where Italy recently  began operations against Tripoli.  The contest was prolonged, and at  time's; Its Issue hung lnv the balance;  but having superior sea power; which  gave her command, of : the Mediterranean,   Rome    won,   and    Carthage  "ceased to exist.  Many centuries later Europe was  again menaced by a northern- African  . people -..���������  the ���������.

The  guardians of the children will be required to possess a -knowledge of  medicine. We are also informed that  they will be armed with revolvers, for  their protection when entering houses  in the lower quarters where they  have a suspicion ..that children are  being ill-treated. Thirty women will  be engaged at the start, but we are  not told whether they will wear the  Jupe-culotte. ������������������*"'     '  :N.o,52o4l  *s  108 Cheques Will be  Distributed Among Canadian  Farmers.

Every farmer in Canada who uses "Canada" Cement is eligible to  compete. The-conditions arc such that large  and sm-ill users of cement have equal opportunities to win a $50 pri'/c.  The contest is divided into three classes, and there  arc-first,'second, third and'fourth prizes ($50, $25,  #15 and {510) in each class.

(Entriej  fur this prize must be accompanied by photographs of the work.)  Send  me  particulars  of your  i.912  Prize Contest  In addition to thus being divided into  classes, so as to give small tiscrs of cement an'-  equal chance with those who use more, the  Contest is also divided into nine divisions, one  for each province So you sec you need only  to compete"with the other fanners of your own  province, and not with those all over Canada.  Don't think that because you have never  used cement, you cannot win a prize. Many  of last year's prize winners had  never used cement before they  entered the Contest.

All welcome  VACOUVER vs. PROGRESS  The .recent  conference  at  New  Westminster  relative   to'the   importation of immense quantities of  the products of the farm intcBrit-  ish Columbia, was -instrumental in  '������������������ringing  to light   a'   condition   of  -..'fairs which is   a   standing  disgrace to the people of the leading  ci'y of the mainland.   Fourteen of  the leading  municipalities, representing the richest farming section,  in the province, are being subjected to  a  species of boycott at ihe  hands of-Vancouver business men.  An organized conspiracy ia on foot  to, underestimate   at  every   turn,  not only  the lands  but  the  products of the Fraser Valley.  .This policy of'discrimination, originally intended as   a   means  o*i  retaliation against their neighboring  city    of    New    Westminster,'  whose   active   progressive   policy  of the' past few years has caused  Lhe Vancouver business element to  look with jealousy in its direction,'  has spread to such an extent that  at the present time, there is harcily  ::   retailer in  Vancouver who  will  not give  preference  to  the  products o-f our American neighbors,  The buying public are being led to  believe that there Is an undefin-  able  something  against  the  prtf*  ducts of the Valley and wherever  possible,   preference   is   given   to  imported   goods.   In   addition   to  the discrimination against the products of the Valley, .there is an organized movement among the realty brokers of the city, to boycott  the lands of the Valley.   Incoming  settlers are being treated to fallacious descriptions of the district,  not; only are the land values assailed, but prices are represented  as being beyond the- purse of any  but the most* wealthy.   Representatives of the brokers meet all incoming trains and the flow of settlers  from  eastern   and  European  points are being treated to   a process of so-called eolucatiori^ which  has for its object the crippling ot  the resources of New Westminster  and incidentally the whole' Frasei  Valley.' .  -">'' -   *  '-  We know that the Fraser' Vat-  ley-is the richest'and most fertile  tract 'in   the   whole   province   ,of  British Columbia arid it is  a'matter of regret that there should be  any scheme on foot to belittle the  country in  the eyes  of the newcomers and we know that however  virulently   the   resources ;of   the  'country may be assaile.d, it cannot  result   in   any   permanent   injuiy  The present situation is such however that it is' incumbent upon the  fourteen, municipalities   involved,  to take immediate steps to offset  the impression which is being in-  culated by ^the movement  of   the  Vancouver  business   men.   In   order to  effectually  meet  the   situation, it" is   essential  that  there  shall be  co-operation  among "the  municipalities.   The -expense   attached to   a   successful campaign  of enlightenment, would be beyond  the purse of any municipality, but  where there  is co-operation,   the  expense    to     each    municipality  would'be   small.   We   must   take  immediate steps to have tha necessary   literature   published,   setting forth  in   concrete  form,   tne  actual advantages which hte Fraser Valley  has  to  offer.   Definite  information  relative   to  the  land  and its productiveness.   The puo-  lishing of the literature in  itself  would not be sufficient.   Adequate  provision  must be  made  for  the  intelligent distribution of the information.        Authorized    agent*  should be appointed  to  meet  all  trains both at Vancouver arid at  Mission,  in   order  that   incoming  settlers may be put in touch with  the  true   conditions   before   they  come in contact with the blandiuh.-  ments   of   the   Vancouver   really  men whose object is to retard our  progress.  Yns'   Numbers   Yet   Have   Belief  TriinsmJgralioii of Souls Which  May Probnbly Account for  Worship of Animals.  in  It- h;i3  been believed  by vast num-  '"icrs oi" men  that animals have souls.  Especially   in   ,the  groat  ndst   civiliz-  itlons   of   the   East  do'we  find   this  ���������ielicf.    Also  it  has  often   been  suo-  oosed,   not   only   that   animals   have  ���������ouls, .but that their souls' represent  ������������������tngos,  upward or downward, in  the  'iistory of the souls of human beings,  "his  is  really  the doctrine, which  is  -ailed  "the   transmigration  of souls,"  md   it   explains,   probably,   why  ani-  ���������nals have so often boon worshipped.  But though, perhaps, no,one can be  -mite sure of tho answer to this question,  most  thoughtful   people  find  It  hard   (o   believe   that , animals   have  ������ou!s.    If we believed this, we should  find that it Involved all sorts of. difficulties, when we came to consider the  case of humbler animals, and plants,  and even tiny and trifling short-lived  microbes.  Yet this does not mean that when  even the humblest living creature dies'  anything Is lost. We know< that It  would be quite opposed to Nature's  universal rule that nothing is ever  lost. On the contrary, the body which  lias been built up by the life of .'every  living creature is valuable for the  lives of other creatures. Not even  the humblest life can be looked upon  as useless.

Pathological Study Goes to Shove that  a Heavy  Hat has  Bad  Effect  . on the Continuity of  Thought.  Years of study have convinced Dr.  George W. Galvin, United States  pathologist that heavy hats retard  the growth of the Intellectual powers";  that the lighter the headgear the  more active  the wearer's brain.  When any ,of the senses are Interfered with the train of thought Is  broken. A violent blow suspends  thought, .and , sights sudden and  strange have been known to drive  persons  insane.   ���������  Interruption of the function of the  senses may co-vie in various ways, and  the heavy hat has an unfavorable'  effect on the continuity of thought.  A deep thinker seldom nas a hat on  his head when wrestling with an important ' problem. Edison wears no  hat, simply.a cap. Many men eschew  the tightly -fitting derby entirely.  Luther Burbank, the famous naturalist, Is another who never wears a hat.  A bliliard player seldom wears a  ha't and never when at a critical stage  of the game. Jockeys, golfers and  baseball players invariably wear  caps.' I have noticed, the "fans" remove their- hats at a particularly exciting moment in the game.  .There is much significance In the  fact that college girls wear no hats  at all. That it is advantageous Is  "roved by their marked progress;  they are gaining in their averages of  studies.  To be lost in the woods of Graham.'  Island recently, without food or shelter for three days and two nights was  the terrifying experience of Mr White.'  of Tow Hill, a seventy-year-old retired carriage-maker from Vancouver.  Mr. White, who has hfd'a longing  to .spend his declining days by the  seaside, went to Graham Island a-few  weeks ago to look for a small pre-'  emption for himself and wire. lie  found one on the north coast of the  Island near Tow' Mill, and is erecting  a house and cultivating a small patch  of the land  there.  A few days ago he started out for  a little walk inland, following a survey line. Before going far "he lost  ' the line, and thorn-''- he wal'-ed to and  fro' all clay he' could not pick it up  again. At night he l*u;lt' a fire and  slept. Next day he set out again.  Walking in a circle ho onlv succeeded  after a day's march in ppttinc back  to the remnant of his last night's fire.  He was then without a lratch and had  to sleep In the cold.' Again next day  and the succeeding n'ght lie walked ���������  about, vainly .trving fo find the way ���������  out. He could hear V'otf" and shouts  of the searchers, and the sound of the  breakers on the shore.-, but could not-  find any path out.  At last on the" third day he 'found  the trail to Cape Fife, but mistaking  the direction walked further- into the  bush, where fortunately he was picked up by a settler.  -During the' who'e- t'ne Mr. White  subsisted on wild torres and is little  the worse for his adventure. Nothing  daunted.by his exnr-r->nco, lie is still  firmly decided to sr-en! the remainder  of his days with his wife on Graham  Island.  "Wrong Every  Time  "At a recent political meeting a  speaker was attacking the- Government with more venom than reason.  A man at the back of the hall at last  cried out, "You're wrong, sir!"  A little nettled, the orator continued  without heeding. Presently, in answer  to another strong assertion, came  again, "You're wrong, sir!"  The speaker looked angry, but continued on the war-path. "You're  wrong, sir!" again rang out.  Angrily addressing the persistent  interrupter, the crater cried, "Look  here, I could tell this man something  about the Government which would  make his hair stand on end!"  "You're wrong again, sir?" came  ���������"rom the critic, as ho stood up and  removed his hat. His head was as  bald as a billard-ball.j.  When  We  Wrre  Poor  "When we wero poor." remarked the  prosperous business p-a.n, "we looked  forward   to   the  time   when   we  could  have a summer homo."

The next morning  the patient was decidedly relieved and  enthusiastic as to the comfort r>  ceived from the treatment.

It requires much jrif-'ence, slow  motions and frequent offerings of food  to tame wild birds. Some are tamed  very easily: others refuse to make  friends with man. Probably the.  easiest of all birds to tame is the  Canada jay, (also called "camp robber," "whiskey jack," or '-fresh meat"  bird), or the chickadee (black-capped  tit-mouse). The Canada jay lives in  our Canada and the mountainoua  regions of the western and northeastern United States. Without waiting for an introduction he will fly  down to your camp spread and snatch  a piece of bread or moot under your  very eyes; and the slightest hint that  his presence, is welcome is enough  to embolden him to take food from  your fingers. Winter is the best time  to tame' chickadees, for then it Is  difficult for them to find enough food.  Nail pieces of suet to tree trunks  close to your window, place the meats  of hickory nuts, pecans. "English walnuts or peanuts on your window-sill,  and ' if the chickadees and white-  breasted- nut-hatches visit neighbouring trees they will soon find the  luncheon. Robins and catbirds should  be tempted with bread and milk,  strawberries and cherries; while  song sparrows and chipping sparrows  prefer bird seed, cracker, bread or  corn   bread   crumbs.

PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARUid  There are in general two form:,  of  the .popular Presidential primary,  says the  New   York  Outlook  in explaining this somewhat mystifying  American institution.   One  form' borrows the  method  of   Lhe-  Electoral  'College.   According  vto  ���������his, the voters of the party choose  delegates pledged to one candidate   or to  anotner,  and   therefore  by their votes for these pledged  delegates cast their  votes as Jii-  .ected   for  the   various  candidates  ior the nomination as the voters in  the' National   election .cast  -their  votes   for   i-resident.   The   other,  lorin  adopts the method of  most  elections.   According  to thisfoim  che voters express their preference  uy indicating .their choice directly  tor   one  candidate   for   the. Pres-  .dential nomination or another. It  .s this latter form of popular Presidential primary that is called.tne  presidential  preference primaxy.  There are nearly as many Varieties of Presidential primary as there  are states in which it is in force.  In most, if not all, existing Presidential primaries the two general  forms   of   expressing   the -voter a  choice  are  in   use;  and  therefore  two'operations are involved ;   Fnat  selecting  the  delegates,  and   second,   instructing   them.      In     the  methods by which the first operation is carried out there is wide  variation among the various staLoa  which have what may be palled   a  Presidential primary.   In the metL  ods   for  carrying  out  the   seconu  operation there is little variation.  The presidential primary,though  varying as widely as it does in detail, is yet based upon two definite  principles.   The  first is that  delegates to national conventions shali  be selected as directly as possible  by the voter;  the  second is  that  the  voters shall be  given an  opportunity as directly as possible to  impress upon the delegates whom  they  select their choice for Presidential candidate.  With regard to preferential prin.  aries, the point is not whether tne  voters are capable of making -i  choice! but whether it is practicable to devise a method whicU  will enable the voters to record  their preference and insure that  choice being made effective.  The   experience   of   the   United  States where the primary now exists, has provided some interesting  evidence   regarding  the   value  of  the primary, and has proved chat  the disadvantages of the President,  'al primary, in some cases far from  trifling, are greatly outweighed by  the advantages.   This evidence al  so has proved  that the value of-  the   Presidential   primary   variej'  according to the form adopted,   it  moreover shows that most of the  disadvantages arise from the fact  that legislators, in their caution regarding  the adoption  of what  is  novel, have unsuccessfully attempt  ed   to   combine   inconsistent  lele  ments of the new system and the  old convention system.  ited almost all parts of the province, say's; "There never was such  a crop of fruit, in .sight in Britidh  Columbia as there is'today. And--  tho splendid prospects for a record  breaking crop are not confined v  any one section or to tiny.one, variety of fruit. Every portion of "tho  province as far as my observation  has e-onc and all kinds of fruit with  the exception possibly of raspberries, which will be light, seem certain to .sharo in the rcmarkablw  crop that is foreshadowed by present conditions in the agricultural  listricts."

Brandrith,  provincial  exhibition commissioner, who has vis  (Prom Fraser Valley Record)  It will be good "news to the people of the Fraser Valley to laacn  chat   the  Land   Registry   at  New  Westminster, along with theothev  offices of a similar nature throughout the province, is  to be over--  hanled.   Mr. H.. C. Hannington,.inspector of. Legal Offices, has just  returned from   a   trip throughout  the .prairie   provinces Avhere   he  visited the land registry offices at  .Winnipeg, Regina, Edmonton and  Calgary in quest of new ideas.   He  has returned to the capital of  ii.  C. filled with new ideas, and  v/ul  immediatly start in planning how  best  to  organize the various  offices throughout the province with  a   view to having system in transfers,  etc., done in   a   businesslike  manner,   without  the ' tardy' wait  chat  has heretofore   existed.  It has been no secret that  i������hc  land  registry offices of the provinces have found themselves woefully behind with their work.  The various public bodies, in-  ���������luding councils, and (boards ,of  rade have taken the matter up  ���������:ind while some improvement han  .been noticed, yet at the same time  business done has been very unsatisfactory to the public. The  Mission Council had a little experience of it lately.  On Mr. Hanington'returning to  Victoria he was interviewed by th?;  press   and  had -the   following   to  say; ���������  "I regard Winnipeg as having  the ideal system," he said..," ii  a land transfer is put into a Winnipeg office today you can get it  back tomorrow, and if you are in  a hurry and place it in the forenoon you can have it returned iu  the afternoon."      ��������� '  "In Winnipeg, the registrar general of the Province, Mr. Macara,  extended to me every pioSjSiblc/.  courtesy and I had the run of in**,  office lor several days gleaning  much valuable information. I ���������.oi--  sider that the Manitoba system ib  the most complete I have ever ti  vest-gated, (their survey branch  being paricularly up-to-date. One  of the leading features of that dya  tern is that they have an outsiuu '  inspector. Every sub-division map  brought into the office is personally inspected by him on Lhe  ground. He goes out into the  field and checks every���������map.'  "There was one thing I noticced  in particular and which impressed  me greatly. Tha*t was (thai, aio  persons other than those employed in the land .registry offii_ea  were allowed behind the counters  .n B. C. the custom that has grown  with the department allows practically anyone to get in behind tne  counter. I may say that that practice has now been considerably  curtailed in the provincial offices  and l" think it will not be ,vjery  long before it is prohibited altogether. It has been found a great  hindrance ' to progress in the offices and should never have been  allowed at all. At present the  privilege is confined to solicitor  which is certainly a great advance from the former condition,  of things.  The- work in the B.C. offices is  far. behind. Nelson is probably  furthest along with its work, oe-'  ing only a month behind, while it  l8' an acknowledged fact the New ^  Westminster' office is a.t leats "a  year behind"." Last month no-loo-j  than 1500 back' titles were caughl  up, according to Mr. Hanningtou"  There are now 71 employees in  the land registry'office in I.Vancouver, 23 in Victoria, 23 in Ni-w  Westminster, to compare with cho  70 in Winnipeg and about the same  number in Regina, Edmonton and  Calgary.  In regard to fees, Mr. Hanington mentioned the fact that in the  three leading prairie provinces  considerable charges are made for  approving and registering every  subdivision plan,' such charges being based upon the number of lots  appear in the plan.
