WHITE ROCK'S MOUTHPIECE  '- The charm of White Rock is no  longer to depend upon word of mouth  or the notices in outside publications  of its worth. Henceforward both its  splendid stretch of beach and its myriad other joys, together with those of  Crescent arid Ocean Park will have  as their champion the Semiahmoo  Gazette, whose initial number, < hot  from the press, is now being circulated. ..;������������������  '"This first.'issue of a three column,  eight-page paper, has as its editor and  manager,' Mr. ��������� Charles E.. ' Sands, a  well known resident of Westminster's  seaside"'resort, and it is anticipated  that from a monthly publication the  paper will shortly be changed to a  weekly.' 'Congratulations to this latest  addition to the newspaper family of  the Coast, we commend its general  spirit and appearance and may both  White Rock and its paper have a full  measure of progressive prosperity.  t~  *\  etition is  Our Goods are open for  inspection and comparison, quality considered,  with    those   anywhere.  and see  yourseJ   i -\t\%_____j__'_______"���������^  The Pioneer Store  V==  J  PROF. HILL-TOITTfAT  PROGRESS CLU  The following taken from Mr. Hill'-  Tout's speech will interest, our readers: . '    .  Thatj a  much  greater   measuuTTf  state   aid   is   absolutely  necessary  to;  stimulate the agricultural industry in  this-province was the declaration made  by  Prof.   Hill-Tout of Matsqui, in his  ��������� thoughtful address at the Progress  Club luncheon yesterday. He takes a  pessimistic view of farming . conditions in the Lower Fraser Valley,  pointing out that at many places there  is less rural settlement and' production than there was 20 years ago.  ".Moreover, conditions are' likely' to  grow worse instead of better if heroic  measures are not taken to. turn the  tide of population back to 'the land.  Among tlie measures of assistance  proposed in addition to state aid in  'clearing the land was the establishment of a central depot in Vancouver,  where produce could be marketed  and a crusade on the part of ��������� local  consumers  against imported produce.  'Another alleviating factor, he declared, would be better arid cheaper transportation facilities of' the surriund-  ing districts.  ��������� Mr. James Findlay,. the new president, occupied.,the ch'airAH'e announced,  that Mr. W. W.'.Foster,.assistant minister of works, would-be the speaker.at  the next .luncheon.  Mr. Hill-Tout said:   '  ��������� "I am taking it for granted that you  all agree with me.that agriculture in  its various forms is as important" to-  'day in the economic life of a-people  as it ever was, notwtihstanding the  enormous emphasis laid upon industrial enterprises characteristic- of our  own day.  "Personally, 1 go farther than this,  and say that no state or country can  be permanently prosperous if due and  enlightened regard be net given to its  agricultural interests, ancl the cultivators of the soil be not aided ancl encouraged-in every legitimate way.  "That this" due regard and encouragement have not been given generally  in our time to agriculture is only too  obvious by the wholesale desertion of  the rural districts by the brightest  ancl best of our young people, and by  the extraordinary .and alarming growth  and congestion of urban populations.  'io .take our own province as an example Greater Vancouver alone, fo  say nothing of the other.urban centres,  contains almost, half the population of  the province, and it looks as if that  rate would be increased rather than  diminished as time goes on.  "I do not hesitate to say that when  and wherever this state of things prevails there is something radically  wrong in the condition of the rural districts, something seriously .wanting  ancl unattractive in the life of agricultural communities.'  "We may cry 'Back to the land till  we are hoarse, but unless we do something to make the existence of the  cultivators of the soil more attractive,  remove some of the difficulties rfnd  hardships with which they have to  contend, and, above ah, secure them a  reasonable remuneration for their labor that cry will have but"little eJfecf,  and  the evil will grow from bad to  worse. ��������� .   " ,    ,     .  "This question is not a purely local  one,'but is world-wide, and is much too  large and complex to discuss with any,  satisfactory resu'lts/m an occasion like  this so I shall confine my remarks  this'afternoon to agricultural problems,  as they affect our own province, and  more particularly our own immediate  district. And chief among these is the  slow development of our agricultural  areas and resources, and the unsatisfactory-condition of our home markets,  and particularly the great market of  Vancouver.  x"No one who has had any acquaintance with the agricultural'development  in this province, and has its interests  at  heart,  can  be  satisfied  with  the  progress   it   has   made,   or   is   making'.  "There are areas in the Lower Fraser Valley where the population i3  less today, than it was-twenty years  ago, and that, too, in localities where  transportation is not, wantinng; arid  the "proportion ' of cultivated land  throughout the whole/valley is, as far  as I have been able to gather, little if  any more than it was a decade ago, in  other words, only about 'fifteen per  conl. of the 'total cultivatable acreage.  "Mr. President, T am a Vancouver-  il.e. myself,  I contribute to your rev-  f-nuc,  both  directly  and   indirectly.  I  have seen this city of which we are ail  so "justly proud, grow from a village  to her present loading position.    My  faith in her future has never wavered.  T  believe  she  is. destined  1o  play  a  great and important part, in the future  of   the   province   and   Dominion;- but  speaking as.an agriculturist I cannot  acquit her of a thoughtless, if not selfish, indifference towards the welfare  of   the   agricultural   communities.     1  am bound to say she has not done lier  duty in" the past to the producer of the  Fraser Valley.   Vancouver is our best  and  biggest market within the  province and as we have assisted to build  her up we have a moral right to expect,  that she will conserve her markets for  us-.    Time and  again during the last  twenty years, efforts have been made  to   establish  a  general  market  here,  where we might send our produce and  hope''to,'get-a reasonable, return for it.  -   "You know as well as'I, that these  efforts have repeatedly-'-failed and'we  have 'been left to ship our produce to,  the commission man, where it has to  enter into an unfair competition with |  the older and.more highly developed'  lands on the American side, through  long and strongly established trade organizations, with results that- are anything but encouraging to the' produce  raisers  of British Columbia.    I have  never yet met a.person who has had  occasion fo. ship produce in any quantity   to   Vancouver   commission   irien  who  has  not .got  some  discouraging  tale to tell.   Let me relate a little experience of my own hoc.  ,A few seasons   ago  I  had  a  large  orchard  of  prunes   for   sale,   some,,'ten   tons.   I  shipped  about four  tons 'in  different  consignments  to  commisison  men in  Vancouver.    Prunes were then selling  to    the    consumer    at. 40 cents    the  crate,   aud   remained   throughout  the  seasou at  that price.    I  did  not net  5 cents a crate on the whole shipment,  ancl the last consignment of seventy-  five crates���������that is, some 1,500 pounds  ���������netted me the enormous sum of 18.  cents, not the price of the nails in the  crates.   What was the fault here? Not  the   quality   of   my   prunes,   nor. the  lack of proper packing,  but competition   with  shipments  from  American  sources.    The  wholesalers  had   their  usual  supplies  from   across  the  line,  for   which . they   had   paid ��������� a   certain  figure, and they could not swamp the  market with my prunes; consequently  the major portion of them were left  in their cellars to rot and I was called  upon to, pay the cost of carting them  to the crematory.  "This is a fair sample of the result  of many of our shipments, and 1  could give scores of similar- experiences of other shippers.  "I am convince dby twenty years*  experience in my own locality that  the only salvation of the produce-grower is tho appointment, of ���������experienced  Government organizers and Iii'spec*.  tors;, the establishment of cold storage centres and a proper and workable system of collection and; distribution, Tlie Government that will  undertake this task will do, more for  the permanent prosperity of the province and for the advance of agriculture, than any that has yet existed.  "Mayor Baxter, a couple of Wednesdays ago,-welcomed, tlie, delegates  of the'Fraser Valley Publicity Bureau  in this hall and promised- them the  sympathy and support of the��������� town.  His attitude and sentiments were admirable and, I believe, genuine and  sincere, but words of sympathy, how-  I0AR0 MEETS  AT GIFFORD NO  The regular meeting of the Matsqui,  School Board was held In the Matsqui  Agricultural Hall, Gilford, Saturday,  March 1st, at 11 a.m.. ,.  ; The members of the-trustee board   -  present were "Messrs.'

Our Shibboleth���������Neither for nor agin.the Government.  Friday, March 21, 1913  FOWLS  PLENTIFUL AT THE  ,    MARKET  It would appear that, the Borden government will be forced to  go to. the country on their naval bill. It looks as though the  opposition had finally decided upon that matter. There are marly  amusing little scenes in the house at Ottawa these days if what'  we read in the daily papers is a true picture oi: the happenings  at Ottawa. There is no reason to believe otherwise. History repeats  itself, and sometimes it repeats itself much quicker than other  times: The present policy of tlie Liberals was ��������� no doubt copied  from the Conservatives when the reciprocity bill was under discussion,. Of course no one is at the present time able to say that  the election results will be the same, although the Liberals are apparently hopeful that should the naval bill be a matter for the Canadian  voter to give his decision on, that Laurier will again command the  majority at Ottawa. Nothing' like being optimistic. Thousands  of people would die each year were .it not for the high hopes of  the future.  While in Canada very r6cently "Joe" Martin is quoted as  saying, ���������'Borden's naval policy will carry because the country  knows that Laurier is bluffing."  The people of the Fraser Valley Avill hail with  delight the  fact that the Board of Trade and the people of New Westminster,  are attempting to make the New Westminster market the best that  it is possible to make it.    The farmers need a good market where  they can sell everything that is grown on the land.  With both Vancouver and New Westminster working to im:  prove their markets' the future looks much brighter for the farmer  and fruitgrower of the Fraser Valley. The market is what he requires to build up prosperity.  It is the right of every British and Canadian subject of the  full age of twenty-one years that he have the privilege of by his  vote saying what kind of government he desires in this province.  To do this every person. eligible 0should make it his business to  register his vote before the 7th ��������� of April. That is the date set  for the list to be in the hands of the registrar. Then let every  reader not delay in registering his vote, for he is not oh the, list  .now, and will not have a voice in the coming provincial and dominion elections unless he registers before the 7th of April, next, this  year.  A law has been passed in the state of' Washington, that an  alien" who shall declare his intention of becoming a citizen shall  be permitted to hold land other than agricultural land. This  applies to the white race. Objection was taken to this bill by oue  of the members, as he thought it was the ''opening wedge" by  which Canadians could gain control of large amounts of city property.  The same bill also provides that any corporation,, a majority  of the stock of which is held by aliens, shall be considered alien,  insofar as legality is concerned. This does not give those who are  not born under the stars and stripes much show in the state of  Washington.  The law respecting the naturalization of aliens in Canada  is contained in chapter 113 of the revised statutes of Canada.  This act provides that an alien who is of the full age of twenty-  one years, and not an idiot, lunatic or married woman, may become  a British subject as a Canadian by taking the oath of allegiance,  and also an oath that he intends to remain in Canada. He must  have resided in .Canada not less than three years, or been in the  service of the government' of Canada or any of the provinces of  Canada for not less than three years. The naturalization of an  alien confers upon him a municipal provincial and parliamentary  franchise, but before being able to exercise Ms right of franchise  in a provincial or municipal election such naturalized citizen  would have to fulfil the conditions, as to provincial and municipal  qualifications for voters of the franchise act of the province in  which he happened to be residing. To fulfil some of the conditions, especialy those of municipal the naturalized alien Avill have  to hold land. There are many American-born citizens in Canada*  today who, having taken the oath of allegiance, are enjoying all  rights as Canadian citizens, even to that of holding land. In this  way aliens who become Canadian citizens enjoy the rights and privileges just as though they had been born in Canada. But, according to the law of Washington a Canadian can never become 'the  legal possessor of agricultural land, but he can own all the town  property he likes.  Mayor Baxter should be a proud man as the head of affairs in  Vancouver, now that he has seen the result of his endeavors to  make the C. N. R. agreement pass with such a majority. It spells  progress for Vancouver, for the present at least, and the future will  take care of itself, especially if the city sees that the railway company carries out their part of the agreement to the letter of the  law. The people had every opportunity of discussing the pros and  eons and posting themselves so that they could vote according to  the dictates of their own good judgment.  A supply of eggs equal to that of  mand caused the price of this commodity' to steady, on its - ownward  career and. remain at .30 cents a  dozen, with a strong tendency to  strengthen at the regular market on  i'-riday last.  A pleasing briskness characterized  the poultry and egg departments,  while on the other hand the market  for farm produce and vegetables was  very slow. The increased demand for  fowl oi' all kinds, although causing the  prices or some especially fine ducks to  ioar to $25 and 1*42ti per dozen, did not  .naterially affect the price's, which remained throughout about the same as  last week and a much greater de-  last week. Vegetables, too, despite the  poor market remained stationary, although a tendency to weaken ' was  noticed. Cabbage was sold at 2 cents a  pound, one cent less than last week,  in the other departments the market  remained about tho same as' last week  no immediate change in the prices being anticipated.  A good suply of fresh salmon and  halibut was offered, salmon selling  for from 15c to- 20c a pound, and  halibut for 12 1-2 cents a pound. Fresh  sturgeon is expected next week.  As next Friday is Good Friday the  regular weekly market will be held on  Thursday morning, and an extraordinary supply of eggs, poultry of all  .duds and Easter (lowers is expected.  At the auction sale, heavy draughts  were in good demand two teams being  disposed of, one. at $895 and one for'  |S20. Light horses sold at a low figure owing to the large offering; a fine  team  being boijght for  ?340.  A nice  ���������jolt by B. C. King brought $150.  The Prices.
