Amid  showers of rice and confetti the'hap-.  py couple left for Great Falls, Mon.,  where they will make7 their home for  the present.  The many useful and handsome  presents received by the bride shows  the high esteem in which the young  couple are held in Abbotsford.

THE Ak&OfSFORD POST,  ABSOfSFOM),  S.  C.  is.  THE ABBOTSFORD POST.  Published Every Friday by Tlie Post Publishing Company  A weekly Journal devoted to the interests of Abbotsford and district  Advertising rates  made  known  on  application  Our   Shibboleth���������Neither   for   nor   aain'   the   Government  J. A. BATES, - .     - Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, MARCH 12; 1915,  During the present election this paper, is  willing to publish ;he political iiewi* of both  parties, provided we can. get it and it is news.'  (From Fraser Valley Record) -  It was the pleasure of this paper,to attend  the Fruitgrowers' meeting at Hatzic this week  a report of which is published elsewhere.  We have watched the friut industry of, this  district since coming to reside in,Mission City  and with a great deal of interest. Our one wish  . is to see tlie industry grow .and the growers to  prosper. Around Hatzic and Mission it is apparently most suitable for the growing of all  kinds of small fruit. The fruit can easily be  placed on mrkets and take its place with the  best from any part, of the Pacific Slope. There  being a demand for almost all the small fruit  that can be placed on the market from Mission  and Hatzic, it is up to all concerned to secure  all the advantages of production and marketing that it is possible to procure.  In this question of marketing the horticultural department of the Provincial government  has done wonders for the growers in many  ways.    A markets .commissioner devotes his  time to the prairie markets and judging from  his speeches' this week, and the reports sent  to the fruitgrowers during last season he is  doing good work and there is the expression  of satisfaction from those vitally interested.  Another commissioner for the   province   has  been appointed to stir up tlie coast markets,  and we have enough faith in him to believe  that he is creating an interest in the products  of the Fraser V.alley that will eventually be of  great benefit to the producers of the Fraser  Valley.    There-are other ways* in which that  particular department under the direction of  Mr. Winslow,has encouraged and fostered the  horticultural interests of the   district   .along  with the other districts of the province. This  paper is rather inclined to think with many  others that wonderful progress has been made  during the past few years, and with a continuance of such methods the fruit   industry   of  this district can be placed on a level of that  of our neighbors to the south of us���������-a position  to be greatly desired.  Co-operation for carload shipping has been  one of the strong points advocated by the department. Yielding to the elevating influences of the department, a number of growers of  Hatzic and Mission last year shipped their  raspberries in car load lots to the prairie markets; sent a local man to look after their interests, and incidentally the growers did well  on these shipments.  The growers who shipped in car load lots  have, however, a grievance. The minimum of  a car is 20,0001bs, and to secure the full advantages of the price paid for the car the  growers would have to place 1000 crates of  berries on the car; but instead of that until  such time as all the growers come into line,  those organized to ship in carload lots believe  that 800 crates per car is what meets their demands best. Consequently they ask that the  minimum car weight be reduced to meet their  requirements.  The rate on the carload lot is 2$ per lb, and  on express shipments in less than carload lots  it is 23/4^; then over and above the rate of 2f.  there is the icing and switching charges on  the top of that, thus making the carload rate  higher priced than in shipping in smaller lots  So far as we can gather these two are the  reasons why the carlot-shippers want both the  rate and the minimum reduced.  Mr. Winslow, who is at the head of the B. C.  Fruitgrowers Association declines to present  the views of the local growers in getting the  reduced rate and reduced minimum, holding  the view that he cannot enter into this wholehearted and at the same time protect the interests of the shipper in less than carload lots.  While we quite understand Mr.- Winslow's  view-point, yet it would appear that he is  dealing a death-blow to shipment in carload  lots, and acting contrary to the teachings of  the .department in the much heralded benefits  to be derived by co-operation.  Everybody has been all agog, says the Victoria  Week, for a glimpse of Joe Martin's new paper.  It was rather amusing to* hear on the streets of  Vancouver lots, of good Conservatives doling out  their nickels with the apologetic remark: "I just  want to see what Joe says." The view of The  Week is that a great many people Will just want  to see "what Joe says," mainly because he has  acquired a reputation for springing surprises. He  has sprung many and no one ever knows what he  will do next. In tho Evening Journal his inconsistencies are well reflected even though there is an  obvious attempt to cover some of them  up. For  MAKES EXPLANATION  OP   STOCK  PURCHASES  It is about time that tho term "Fighting Joe  Martin" were revised and something more appropriate substituted. -��������� Mr. Martin is fust proving  himself as much entitled- to tlie designation as a  woman -who quarrels over the..back fence with  every neighbor within hearing arid can get on  with nobody in the street. Hear him in his own  words, published over his own signature:  "I wish to repudiate the suggestion that the  men who have conducted- the ,Sun for the past  three years and the men who carried the Hag of  Liberalism to a disgraceful defeat in this province  at the general elections in 1909 and 1912, are or  have been- political coleagues of mine. I have  in past years dominated these men as the 'Kely  graft', and in my opinion it was because theJKel-  ly graft' was the controlling influence on the Liberal side at the elections in 1909 and 1912 that  those elections were lost to Liberalism. People  of this province declarded in the most emphatic  manner that they would have none of the bandits  such as those who composed the Kelly graft."  This is fairly sweeping. Among the many reputable men who "carried the flag of Liberalism  to disgraceful defeat", as Mr. Martin calls it, were  Mr. J. W. Weart, his former law partner; John  Jardine, of Esquimault, once Mr. Martin's bosom  friend; Dr. King of Cranbrook; Alex. McRae, of  Revelstoke; Stuart Henderson, of Ashcroft; Richard Hall. W. T.- Cameron, Dr. Hall and R. L.  Drury, of Victoria, and in .'the Dominion constituency which is to be favored, with Mr. Martin's '  candidacy such stalwarts as Hans Helgeson, James  Murphy, Harry Jones, J. Yorston,- Mark Eagleson  and Judge Swanson. There seem to be some  fairly respectable citizens among these men. Did  the "Kelly graft" blight them all? And what is  the "Kelly graft" anyway? Mr. Martin has talked  about it for years but when he had an opportunity  of exposing it he failed most' miserably. Invited  to give evidence before a Royal Commission he.  could neither produce any facts nor any witnesses.  A more contemptible fizzle never excited the  laughter of the public than the Martin fiasco at the  inquiry conducted by the Honorable Mr. Justice  Murphy.  But the Liberals whom Mr. Martin has read out  of the party he is to lead to glory and conquest  may take heart. They are not alone in the misfortune of finding it impossible to incur anything  but Mr.. Martin's animosity. The list of people  with whom this redoubtable politician cannot got  on begins in' Manitoba in the 90's,- extends from  Manitoba to Ottawa, back to British Columbia and  thence across the ocean to Great Britain. It includes everybody with whom he has ever had any  thing to do for long in a political way from the  minor leaders of Canadian provinces up to the  great statesmen whose hands guide the Empire in.  this hour of "crisis. Why is Mr. Martin not in one  or other provincial house? Because he could not  rule Sir Wilfrid Laurierv. and declined to be^ruled  by him. Why is he not at this moment .in the  Imperial House ofCommons, doing his duty by the,  British constituency that elected him? Why, instead of serving the Empire quietly and unosten- ���������  tatiously at his proper post, does he desert it in  its hour of need to stir up discord among tho Liberals of BritishColumbia and: the citizens of Vancouver? Because lie could not get on with the  Imperial leaders who somehow failed to see in him  a heaven-sent prodigy of ability and political a-  cumen  and   defer  to  him   accordingly.      ,  Is everybody wrong and only Martin right? Is  it possible that Winnipeg, Victoria, Ottawa and  London have alike been blind to the greatness and  worth of this Vancouver lawyer? Is it entirely his  misfortune that after sitting in the proudest legislative chamber in the world he is reduced to  seeking to be heard by proxy in the council chamber of this city, already overwhelmingly rejected  in'his oAvn proper person?> Mr. Martin returned  a few "months ago with credentials fom Sir Wilfrid  He came, he said, to lead the Liberal party to  victory in the Dominion elections. He would not  have anything to do with provincial politics, still  less municipal affairs He has begun his work  well. Let him continue a little longer and the  Liberal party in British Columbia will be so split  up in factions that all hope of success might as  well be abandoned. Is this Mr. Martin's subtle  aim? Is this'to be his crowning revenge on a  community that will have none of him? Or is it  simply his Innate contrariness, his desire to bo the  "whole show" or stop the show altogether?���������-World  Hon. Price Ellison TelLs Legislature  The Facts Concerning His Dealings With Colony Farm���������Gives  Full Details.'  At a' session of the Legislature  held early this week tlie Hon. Price  Ellison,   Minister   of   Finance     and  instance, he announces in the. "foreward" that the  paper is to be independent, but a little further on  states that it will support the political principles  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and attack tiie administration of Sir Richard McBride. On another-page  in an article which properly belongs to the editorial ; column, Joe bewails'. the decadence of the  Liberal party and the lack of.leaders. Indeed, he  goes so far as.to assert,that none of the "recognized" leaders are capable of leading the party to  "the Promised Land". This tickles the palate in  anticipation of something yet to come, and in a latter column the sequel is supplied, for we are told  that   many   a ��������� politician   has   risen   to  high   office  through the. ownership of a newspaper. This would  seem to furnish a pretty complete clue to tlie programme of the member for St. -Pancreas, and the  owner and editor of the Evening Journal, but for  fear the halting intelligence of the community  should fail to string together these pearl3 of promise, the policy is clinched by the statement that  the public is tired of "parties" and would gladly  welcome a "coalition." Incidentally, the wording of this paragraph suggests a thinly veiled invitation to come under the umbrella; at least this  is how the matter appears to one reader of the  Evening Journal. Obviously,1 the modern Joseph  has not yet. entirely discarded his "coat of many  colors."  Agriculture, made an explanation on  a question-, of privilege, of his position relative to the purchase by him  of a number of cattle,from the Colony Farm.

HEAR  GOVERNMENT EXPERT  (From Fraser Valley Record)  . two important meeting were held  in the district this week, one at Hatzic and the other at Mission City  The three speakers did themselves  justice showing that they are carefully working along lines of improv-  ment..  Mr. R. "C. Abbott, Fraser Valley  Markets commissioner, has compiled  figures showing the consumption -of  fruit and vegetables, local and foreign, consumed by' the City of Van-  couver.,These figures are interesting  as they show the possibilities of the  Vancouver market for the' producers  of the Fraser Valley. Taking -Vancouver as a basis it was found that  43,485 crates of strawberries were  consumed, 23,419 from B. C, and  out of the latter 13000 came from  Vancouver Island.  Very few "were brought into the  country, except by two Jewish firms. -  3234 crates of raspberries were  brought in from the American side  before our season opened; 1500 In  June and July; 8647 from districts  adjoining Vancouver.  730 crats of blackberries were'Imported from the U. S. and 1-214 "from  B.C.  ���������    In gooseberries 661 and 306 locally,  .In currants 146 were foreign and  477 locally.  In plums 20012- were consumed  but only 1815 were imported after  the locals came in. 27,903 were-from  B. C. The Americans lost heavily.  Pears,  18349" from the U. S. and  3271 from B. C. a great many being  from the upper country.  Rhubarb, 10249;from B. C.^ .  Apples 154,500 were consumed  arid .out of this 84,098 -from B. C.  which represents only 12^% of the  production of B. C. for the year 1914  He Btated that Apple Week in Vancouver helped out B. C. a lot.  Therewere 3,896,369 lbs of onions  consumed, some from U. S.j .from B.  C. and even some from Spain, the  latter being stlllon the market in the  best of condition.  In .eggs 5,057,760 were from-China, 234,848 from U. S. Eastern Canada 1,064,190 making a total of  3.918,368 dozen consumed from the  various sources. The government are  endeavoring to stop the import of the  Chinese eggs by act of parliament.  Butter showed that 6,906,050 was  the amount in lbs consumed last year  and paid duty;. 60,000,000 lbs came  from New Zealand; 10,000,000 from  Eastern  Canada. ,        ;  607571bs of honey 11,101 tons of  Hay; Oats 2683; wheat 8213;. 650  of Peas; 882 of Barley; and 56,373  sheep were consumed by the Vancouver markets. '  In vegetables only 86 per cent of  that consumed were grown by Chinamen.  Out of 237,628 sacks of potatoes  210,710 came from the Fraser Valley  while Ashcroft provided 24,327 in  October and November last year.  Cherries, 118,358 lbs came from  B. C. and 181,283 from the United  States. ?  Mr. Forsyth Smith congratulated  the small fruit grower on having a  better financial standing than many  other people-at the present time.  He outlined the work done on the  prairie markets last year, considerable of which has been already placed  in the hands of the growers through  the markets reports of last year.  He'recommended the growers to  have well filled boxes put up in the  best of condition and for all to get  into the car load shipments.  Car load shipments brought the  money In quicker and prevented the  glutting of the market.  He took up the various markets in  competition with B. C. and.showed  that it was only a matter of: good  handling on the part of the B. C.  growers in order to secure the prair-,  ie markets for themselves.  Mr. Winslow took up with the fruit  growers several matters, among them  the shipment of fruit in carload lota  and the reduced minimum and reduced rate.

HUNTINGDON  NEWS  ITEMS  Charlie Brown alias Shorty, our  strapping barber, proved himself to  be a ventriloquist on Monday at the  Abbotsford patriotic concert.  It is expected that the restaurant  and butcher shop will be opened a-  gain at an early date.  Miss McFadden was the guest of  Mrs. Munroe this week. -  Mr. J. Munroe left on Thursday  for Saskachewan where he will locate  on a ranch.  Registered at the Abbotsford Hotel during the past few days were W.  H. McClughan of Port Kells, T. Ryan of Clayburn, A. B. Campbell of  Vancouver and Dr. Jordan of Vancouver.  What seems to be bothering a very  large number of people is how the  Post'got the news of Reeve Munroo's  resignation so quickly The news was  published before the councilors, even,  knew of the reeve's reesignation but  then the wireless of the Post was in  good working order, it was laughable  to hear the comments but the Post  finally squared itself when Mr. Mun-  roe's resignation was read and thus  made public.  Carl Preiss who is too fond of being patriotic to the faderland in the  land of his country's-enemy���������in his  speech, who has been living on an  old sheep ranch in the Clayburn district, and who has been under police supervision for some months past  has been quietly taken into New  Westminster with the object of his  being interned.  Mr. Claude Ward who has been  ranching here will leave on Monday  March 22 for Idaho where he will  locate.       ,  Mr. Fraser Yorke has been appoint  ed constable for the Sumas municipality.       ,  Mrs. Barrett who has been visiting friends at the coast has returned  home.

RELGIAN  RELIEF   CONCERT  Another excellent concert for the  relief of the Belgians was given in  the Alexandria Hall, Abbotsford, B. C  on the evening of Monday, March 8  This concert was under the organization of Miss Madeline de la Giroday  who was indefatigable in her efforts  to make the occasion the great and  grand success it was. The large hall  was well filled with an appreciative  audience and it was very noticeable  that many of those present journey-1  ed from the neighboring city of Sumas, Wash. It went to show that;  the hearts of many of our neighbors)  from across the-line are in the right!  place and not only did they turn out'  cwell, but they assisted materially in  the programme. The ten' piece orchestra which rendered many -excellent selections, under the able"lead-  ership of Mr. W. M. Clark, had^six  Sumas musicians included therein' In  addition to this they brought along  their best soprano in the person of  Mrs. Frank Nash who was in splendid voice and rendered three well-  chosen songs which were highly appreciated by the audience.  Space and the inability to do each  number on tlie program justice prevents us from making comment but  the concert was in every way a success and each item on the programme  was appropiate and excellent.

Thus writes  a contributor to the Canadian Courier in an excellent article dealing  with the after effects of the war on  the Hebrew race. He continues "Now  that Britain' is at war with Turkey,  the Hebrew problem of this nomad  race that rears its ghettos in the cities of every land has become a live  subject. Turkey controls Palestine.  When Turkey is beaten by the British-^���������what more natural, asks one  writer in an English .newspaper, than  that Palestine should become a British possession? He points out that  five-sixths of the import trade of Palestine is already done by England.  Australian. New Zealand and British  troops are helping the desert to beat  back  the invading Turk. British  troops have pushed against the Turk  one hundred'miles up the Tigris  from the Persian Gulf. British .and  French warships are bombarding the  Dardanelles, with the possible result  that Britain and France may got control of Constantinople, which would  moan the downfall of the .Turkish  Empire.  With Palestine taken from tho  Turk, shall tlie Holy Land become a  i.5ritish possession administered  from Egypt, or be made independent  or be handed over to the Jews; or  j will it become a suzerainty of Russia  who 'would find' in Palestine a solution of her Jewish problem? The answer is yet to come. Meanwhile, in  spite of the fact that thousands , of  Jews are serving in the Russian army  Russia is not giving an inch of  civil rope to  the Jews.
