R. Contemplate, Improvements'  PERRY'S ��������� STEELE-BRIGGS'  THE   PIONEER  STORE  I, "��������� -'  A   FERRY ACROSS THE .FRASER  (From Fraser Valley Record)  Prominent among the amounts  voted for Dewdney district it is  noticed thta $9,500 has been iset a-  ,part for a ferry across the Fraser River at Mission City. Ever  since the Board of Trade has been  in existence no stone has been left  unturned'in order to secure the  ferry, seeing that a bridge was  at the present time an impossible  means of securing, traffic_ owing to the cost. This session our  member has been successful in having an appropriation granted fpr  the work. Last year all were disappointed in not having the work  remembered in the estimates, but  all things come to those who wait  and the people of this part of the  valley have indeed waited long for  _ome means of crossing to and fro  between Matsqui and Mission.  The next thing will be the bridge  across the Fraser. Our member for  Dewdney, Mr. W. J. Manson, des-"  erves credit for carrying out the  wishes of the people.  -    IHIM  By having a ferry across the  Fraser atthis point _nd the completion of the Dewdney Trunk road  either front or back, it is hoped the  buth, one of the finest automobile  runs will be created that can be  found anywhere in the province.  The route will pass through  some of the finest fruit growing'  districts found anywhere in Airier  ica. The .scenery 'is superb; and  further it shows the would be investor and. home seeker the rich  lands of the Fraser Valley with  its excellent climate and hospitable people. The man with the  auto can leave Vancouver with his  machine, reach New Westminster,  pass  along  'to  New   Westminster  Junction and cross the Pitt .River  on a   ferry, ��������� passing 'through  the  scenic, rich and fertile districts of  Maple Ridge and Mission until 'he  roaches   Mission   City,   Cross   the  Fraser on the ferry .and by means  of  the  Riverside, Abbotsfor-d  and  Huntingdon  road  .reach  the   Yale,  road at Abbotsford'having for the  greater part of the way maignifi-  cient   v.>fw_,of,Mt. IBaker a sight for  which people h\ve travelled thousands of miles   Here the Yale road'  may be taken to New Westminster  and back to Vancouver���������a   run of  over 100 miles.   What better adver  tii&ement can  the Valley  have   at  the present 'stage of development  than that?      No  place  i:n  British  Columbia can do with more '.public  ity  than  the   Eraser   Vaflley,   and  back up all legitimate boosting it  can receive from any source.   The  people are prosperous and new set  tiers are coming into the country  every  week���������settlers   with money  The ferry will put Mission in  touch with the prairies of Matsqui  where mixed farming is carried en  successfully.c The hay and grain  of that district or 'at least a lot of  it can be consumed on this side of  ;ho river; while they in turn wiil  undoubtedly demand more ot Mission fruit. Heretofore there has  been b.ut little interchange of products or business between the tw >  growing municipalities.  .It is.expected that the ferry will  be in operation about the first of  June this year.  WATCH ABBOTSFORD GROW  BIRTH���������To Mr. and Mrs. Hayes on  Fabruary 20th, a thirteen and  a   half pound baby boy. j  Last year it waif* expected that  tho C. J������. R, would provide for  Abbotdford-��������� a more suitable station and aliio more tracks for the  accommodation   of  those     doing  business with the company) not to  stiy   anything  about the  convenience   of  tho company  itsolf. /   IjL  was, said that a'"large appropriation   had   been set apart for the  work,   last  year, but  at t);g  end  or tho general public: but the way  little  had been accomplished   for  either the benefit of the company  of the general,public, but the way,  was  undoubtedly jmade easy    for  the big undertaking of the.preucnt  year's   work. .���������   ,  This'year it is reported'that .a  wry large appropriation has been  made, for work'to be done at Abbotsford. The amount is said to  be in theineighborhood spent, here  this year is in the neighborhood of  some  $55,000.00.  Complaint has /been'made' that  the present -station and particular^ the freight'shed isjiot in keap  ing with the demands and requirements of the town arid the amount  of business transacted. There was  a time however when the present  building was all that was needed  and one of .he largest buildings in  he town, but lhe town-has certain  y  outgrown that date.  The C. P. R. is a  .--big corporation  and naturally needed .improvement  are islow in coining, but 'when '. it  does come, the* .general.,public are  the ones that are surprised at the  immense   undertakings, .which  always   prove an ' impetus  to      the  business  interests of the     towns  where the work is done.  '   This  week the reiport  that sucli  u   large amount had been appropriated  for Abbotsford ,,has caused  considerable comment and ev:  eryone,  is anxious to know what  the  changes are to be.   For   one  thing  it' appears that a   new and  commodious station is to bob, uilt  fui'vhar e.ist than the present one���������  at the eastern end of the ipla/tform  I    The present station and shed, is  j'to   be left where,It i3  and to be  'used as a   freight shed, while the,  new 'station is .to  be a   magnificent .building, arid adequate    for  tho  growing'and prosperous burg  of   Abbotsford,   It  will   be   modern   and convenient in  every,respect.   When ibegu'n ,^t  will     undoubtedly- rushed to     completion  with   all possible speed.  At the present ,ti,me Essendene  a- fiiue is 'often blocked by the  ���������hunting of cars 'and. the trains  when they ;pull up at the station  This will be .done away with when  the new station is built and the  yard enlarged. Report has it that  Awee one thousand- feet of trackage is to be built, two of these  racks are to be on the .vest- Fide  of the main line, and one on the  east side, while a connection is  to bs'made with the B.   C.   E.   R  When the work Js..accomplished,  it should place the C. P.'R. system in this town-on a par .with  other points of the sarrie importance on the-line and should with  the present, riiake quite sufficient  accommodation for adl purposes.  All -will hail with delight the  proposed improvements, ,and' it-  will no doubt prove of great bene  fit to Abbotsford and vicinity.  . *���������* ^s./N.^*������ ^   "V *N ���������V^ *���������* **��������� >  "SOCIAL AND PERSONAL  This is Lent; so is our umbrella  Mr. M.

What the future .has in store for
lhe town of Abbotsford is a much
discussed question these days, both
in the town and by the outsiders.
The citizens of this town are look
_d upon by non-residents as won-
__rful "boosters,"' \( May it always be thus, as upon the growth [
of tho town much depends on the
way our ci'.zms present their c'aim
for greatness upon the minds of
the would be investor.' The way
all our citiz'ens' pull together for
the, advantage of the town is re-
'markable " and Bomctiimcs paBBCth
tho understanding' of strangers.
But' the AbbottJi'd booster is .per-
rfactly justified 'in boosting- - for
his   tow.n,' as  there   is  something
Just wait and
Bread, Buns, Kisses,

Some, towns where one'goes'he
(will find that, there are those who
are always knocking. They seem'
to,, act on the. principle that '.'Every knock' is a boost'-and' they
keep1 kno;clcirigall day long, and
when a ' stranger .comes into town
the first "thing' done 'is to tell all
the little petty grievances'between
themselves and their, 'neighbors,
one .oftie-hwonders why. It don^t
ho'.-u the town that is certain, and
therefore it must hurt .it. When
-a-.stranger .enters .the .gates .always treat him, as though the fin ���

cit'izjens' are.all boosters.   ���

Sir Wilfrid-Laurier in his-western tour last summer made a speech
at Fort William which was taken
as,.l,'His Message-to the" West." He
5ays,- you will notice that'he wants,
"to make our country their: country."   This phrase, has undoubtedly several rneanings and we have
'to judge, .the actions, following Sir
Wilfrid's,visit^to the westto under
stand- the-true meaning of " that,
phrase!'  The' people''-who are com
ing into the.''prairiepro'vinces froni
tlie American .'side are undoubtedly;
Americans-/;Yankees, first last and
always. .There _re(tver'y few who
do not, retain warm feelings     for
the land of their Ibirth.   It is only
natural that they should.   That   a
great many of these people desire
to be able to count ;,Canada as     a
as   a   part   of  the   United   States
there is no doubt.   Sir Wilfrid, who
wants -their   vote at the  next el-
���ec'ion ih ows out to--_..:jm;the reciprocity treaty  what they      want
,partly, and the rest as sure to follow, in,the natural course of events
If there' is anything in the annexation- idea'Sir'' Wilfrid may have
done all in his power "to make our
counntry their country."

The-wreck presented a picture  of destruction'without fire, arid it  showed what can take place in a  few Bec'pnds with a freight train  passing-rapidly over poor track  and becoming'unwieldy and jump-  vig the raids. About thinliy-fleeL  from the track and past the road  loading to,the wharf lay one car,  containing paint, considerable of  it red, all smashed to pieces, arid  buried in the soft ground., On top  of this lay another car on its broad  side without the trucks Endwis.  against the-ibottom of this ca*r.wa:>  another, with", its end badly .smash-,  ed in, with between sixteen-, and  seventeen tons of dynafnite in it  Besides 'the end of the car being  badly broken iri, many, of the boxes of "dynamite were,badly broken,  and also sorrie of the sticks of dyno  mite were broken.

It is not definitely'kriown as to  the cause of the accident,' but the  company has, been cutting away  the grade at Hatzic aricl'th'e-track  may not have been in the best of  ���������condition, and passing over the S  shaped curve at the rate of eight  or more miles an hour the swaying  may hiive caused' the car to come,  in contact with the corner of the-  ���������station*" platform thus cau_info the  accident. The cars broke away  leaving the "engine "with about 12  .cars -cqupTed "' with the en-,  gine arid '23 were pushing 'behind  the derailed cars. But the whole  beaty of this mishap is that v no  damage was done outside of ..the,  smashing of the' cars that went.pff ,  the track; "nobody hurt, and there  is but littleuse.in dwelling on the  "what might have been."

As  the   majority of  the subscribers to     the  shares  in  the above company, in  this district  were led to subscribe  to the same on the distinct understanding that the factory was to  be erected in'Mission City ian"d the  promoters even, went so far as to  assure   and   guarantee   that   they  purchased the land for the erection  of a   factory from Mr. H.
