"SBffiJ  aiuitmftm  fr^gy^r^ggsffs;  The Conservative convention  for Chilliwack rvdin'g was-held  on Saturday last in the Alexandria Hall, there "being delegates  j present from all parts of the rid  ing.

Wilson and seconded- by Mr. Bell, and carried uii-  animouslywith;. an" enthusiasm  which showed, that - there was  not a dissenting voice.   '  On being called Mr. Cawley  thanked the delegates for, hav-'  ing given him the unanimous  nomination. ;   He stated" there  was no "ill-feeling on my .-part  because a man lets his name go  , in to; the convention-. I can g,et  in and work just as hard as ever for the - community." There  would be opportunities for pol-  j itical speeches in the future as  ,-far as.he was'concerned; as-he  .! intended to "'-hold meetings all  j"through"'thc-'-rridingv. -He. knew  ! the audience "would rather-listen to Dr. Young.  ���������.

Our government has been  criticised for giving larger-tracts  of land to so-called speculators  The' government have disposed  of large tracts of crown land to  people Who might be called speculators.-    "  The result is. that  ���������$31,000,000 have been secured  for public   works    throughout  the province for roads trails and-  bridges- and publict schools."If  we had not disposed of the land  we would never have gotten the  money to spend. The only other way would have.been to. tax  the farmers, which would have  come heavy on them.   A great  deal of that land will come back  to the province of B. C.    The  speculators <are anxious to get  it off their hands, or they will  get the money. $12,500-000 was  due the government   for    the  land which has been purchased  by the speculators. Now either  the Jand or the    money    will  come back to the government,  were some ofthe remarks    of  the speaker.  It was not yet decided whom  the Liberal candidate would be  but it was expected .that it  would be Mr. Barrow. He was  going to be a strong man in  Chilliwack district. He was  perfectly satisfied that they  would v have a grand fight  as far "aq Mr. Barrow -was concerned. He would talk straight,  politics and we wil! have a  cl ean campaign throughout.

One of the most interesting students of modern  provincial politics is  Mr.   \V.  J, llarns,  of Pitt  Meadows,  who sat in  the legislature as mem-  . b.er   for New     Westminster     district  from 1878 to 1882,     Mr Harris, who  is greatly interested in the coming election, was-in the house at Victoria  , in the days when there were but 24  members.    Mr. George Walkem was  the premier       He was a lawyer and  came from Ontario, the birthplace of  many   wise   men   of the   east  Forty  years ago party politics and party machines  were unknown, members'  indemnities were small and the ridings  represented were large. In. Mr Harris  time as M; P., the members received  as   a   recompense   for   out-of-pocket  ' expenses and in  reward for legisla-  lative labor for the province the sum  of four hundred dollars a pear In the  good   old   days  of  long  ago,   whose  traditions are cherished by the new  generations, it was no easy matter to  get  a  seat  in  the House.    As     Mr,  Harris remihiscently informed a Review  representative all  the  country  east of the Booth ranch at Maillard-  villc was in 18 78 one huge block of  dense timber extending for miles east  "with only the village of Mission;    to  break tne sameness and monotony of  th landscape along the North Fraser  .���������Valley.     There  was no  C.  P,  R   to  carry one in comfort from  place to  place.    Where  Port  Coquitlam   now  stands Donald McLean, George Black  "Ned" Adkins and Colonel Scott, father   of  Mr.   JLoftus' Scott  were    a-  mong'the very few settlers who had  hewn a home out of the.black masses of forest" and lived hard pioneering  lives.   .Travelling.' too. was far from  easy. When Mr. Harris and Mr, Donald McGillivray "stumped" the country politically of course, there was no  : Dewdney  Riding       Dewdney  wras  a  small  part  of  an immense electoral  district which  embraced .Vancouver,  Howe Sound,  Delta, Chilliwack,  Su-  mas   Municipality,   and   an., extensive  tract of the North Fraser Valley ..extending from Vancouver    and    New  Westminster  up  to  borders of Yale  In this huge territory there were 300  voters    In   1878, M   J,   Harris   and  Donald McGillivray together "stumped"  the  widely scattered voters    in  opposition to W, Matthews and James  Oi'r whom they eventually  defeated,  by fifty odd votes Liven in those days  the people demanded to have an opportunity of "sizing up" their prospective member and audiences of five  or   six   or   possibly "twenty   persons  were addressed on the live topics of  the day    Roads were novelties, trails  were   rough,   lonely,  and   dangerous  owing to the presence of wolves and.  other wild animals that infested the  forests.    Sometimes the aspiring politicians  trampml the trails  for mile  after mile, until they were well nigh  exhausted.    At times they went    on  horseback, and often they journeyed  from   Hope   to   the  coast   in  canoes  paddled by Siwashcs.    The old Yale  road even unfit for driving cattle to  the markets. 'As regards the deliberations that passed in the old parliament House at Victoria the legislation ' was   conducted  fairly  amiably,  says Mr. Harris, "but we used to have  some lively times in caucus meetings  although  the  total  revenuue  of  the  country which we had to expend was  not more than two hundred thousand  dollars" Mr. Harris can relate some  interesting   anecdotes  One   concerns  the late Dr Mclnnes, father of Judge  Mclnnes    The  doctor,  he says,  was  inllamed by several trenchant articles  written by J. R, Sutor, editor of the  Mainland Guardian, in a scries of attacks   on   the   Walkem   government.  In a fit of violent temper he punched  the editor's head    Tho editor's head  and   dignity   hurt  so  much   he   had  Mclnnes  taken     before     Magistrate  Armstrong to obtain redress.    Sutor  got the conviction all right but unfortunately  for  him  the  magistrate  was  a   close   friend   of  the  accused.  The   result   oi*   the   court   case , was  that  Suler's  only  satisfaction  for a  "punched  head"  was to  see his assailant fined the sum of���������2 5 cents  SPREADING THE WHITE PLAGUE  A college professor, describing the  effect of wind in a western forest,  wrote: "In travelling, along the road.  I even sometimes found the logs  bound and' twisted to such an extent  that a mule couldn't climb over them  so i  went around."'  Victoria, .B.C.,  March  8;  1915  To   Editors   of  Newspapers,  Sir,  An article appeared in tlie editorial columns of the Vancouver Even  ing Journal entitled "Spreading the  White Plague," which, owing to the  misleading statements contained  therein and the false impression1 which it is apt to convey,  calls for an explanation as to the  work which has been carried out  during the past few years by the  Provincial Government towards eradicating Bovine Tuberculosis from  our dairy herds and thus mitigating  the spread of tuberculosis in this  Province.  The leading scientists of tho  world, men who ha\e made a life  study "of the subject, are all agreed  that milk from cows affected with  Bovine Tuberculosis is one of the  principal causes of Pthisis in children. The report of the Commission appointed last year by the Government of Great Britain to investigate the matter clearly shows this  to be the case.  The following is taken from the  British Medical Journal of January  17th,   10.14:  "In recent years the'results of the  investigations on tuberculosis conducted by the' British Royal Commission, the German Imperial  Commission, and by many individual workers' proved beyond doubt  the' communicability of the bovine  virus from animal to man."  Experimental work conducted 'in  the city of Edinburgh, amongst  children affected with tuberculosis,  proved that out of seventy-two cases  investigated, sixty-five were of the  bovine type, and seven of the human  type, thus proving the communicability of this disease to children in  drinking affected milk.  The findings of the British Royal  Commission are as follows: ���������  "Bovine Tuberculosis can therefore no longer be considered a negligible factor in respect to the spead  of tuberculosis amongst children,  -more especially since unsterilized  cows' milk in this country is a vehicle'by which tubercle bacilli must  most frequently be .introduced into  the bodies of children. The powers  at present vested in our local authorities are grossly inadequate, and  it seems to me to be our special duty  to en'deavor to prevent this enormous and entirely preventable amount' of tuberculosis amongst children. It is a national problem and  the earlier it is faced, the mere easily it will be-solved. That measures  for the protection of children against  infection v������ith the bovine virus are  indispensable, is an undisputable  fact. Whatever powers may be zlv-  en to the looai authorities, the}'  must, to be effective, be so framed,  that their application throughout  the United ' Kingdom will' bej uniformly compulsory.  Five years ago the fight against  bovine .tuberculosis was started in  this province, at the request of'the  stockmen and dairymen of British  Columbia. Testing was undertaken  free of charge, but was not compulsory. . An amendment to the Contagious Diseases Act was therefore  brought into force during the session  of the Provincial Legislature in 1913.  whereby testing was made compulsory. Then commenced an earnest  and systematic fight against bovine  tuberculosis. Mark what has been  accomplished since  .first taken in hand.  When the work  the percentage of  tuberculin test in the principal dairy  districts of the province was as follows:  Gulf Islands, 7 per cent.  Vancouver Island, 10 per cent.  Lower Mainland,  15 per cent.  The last test was made when every dairy cow on the Gulf Islands,  Vancouver Island and practically in  all districts of the Lower Mainland,  was tested, shows the following decrease   in   reactors: ���������  Gulf   Islands,   no   reactors;   Van-  haiid, been drunk by our' children,  and who can say what mortality Avas  caused thereby? Does this look as  if the Provincial Government' had  been spreading the disease? No,  rather give credit where it is due,  and should not our Provincial Government receive hearty commendation for the, goo'd results which have  been accomplished.     ,       '  Now,.about the sale of cows that  have reacted to" the tuberculin test.  Previous to this work being taken in  hand,' hundreds of cows affected with  bovine tuberculosis were sold for human consumption without any .inspection. Since this work has been  taken 'in hand, however, a rigid inspection takes' place, and only' those  cows which are perfectly fit for human food are allowed to be . 'sold.  Others are condemned for tanking  'purposes.' If there are no tubercular lesions on the.meat of tho animal  it is perfectly fit for human food, "and  is sold as such in.every country of  the world.  I wish emphatically to state that  no animal which has been condemned for bovine tuberculosis has been  allowed to be sold for human consumption without a most careful examination by either Dominion or by  Provincial inspectors, and in the case  of those condemned.for tanking purposes, our. departmental qualified  veterinarians see that they are so  disposed  of.  Statements were made during the  present session of the Provincial legislature tliat. the Swift Canadian  Company have been making a fat  thing out of the Provincial Government' by buying, reactors under market value!  The total number of cattle handled by this company was oighty-five,  forty-three of. which wore'condemned  for tanking purposes, and forty-two  passed for beef. The price received  for these cows was 'nearly double  what was statd.v  Milking cows'"'naturally have very  little value as beef, owing to, their  condition, and wonld not be worth  half as much as a fat dry cow.  The tuberculin used in testing by-  ofiicials of this department is secured from the very best sources, and is  guaranteed purer  THE    MARCH TO THE     BATTLEFIELDS;  OR CANADA'S MEN  ON-THE  WAY    .  this   work   was  was  first  begun  reactors   to   the  - The above is the title given -to a  picture that will for many years to  .come be a highly prized treasure.

OIL MAY BE FOUND AT      *'  HEAD OF PITT LAKE  Another Company Putting in Machinery for Drilling , at Territory  Showing  Good  Indications.  A company of oil prospectors, other than' the'Paterson syndicate, is  now assembling boring machinery on  certain lands at the head of Pitt Lake  land recently staked and tested by an  expert. This expert, who ^ was engaged at the Paterson .well at Sturgeon Slough:'was induced to examine the strata and geographical conditions at the place in reference and  gave out as his opinion, after full  investigation and practical tests, that  there are excellent possibilities of oil  being struck' there at. two hundred  feet if the claim is properly worked  One important advantage which the  .land has over the district drilled by  the Paterson syndicate is that the  water problem should not be encountered at any rate to such an extent as that at the slough. As all  who have visited the scene oi* the  drilling carried out by Paterson's  men were aware there is oil to be  had, but the great diiliculty so far has  been'to obtain the oil apart from the  water. Until this obstacle has been  surmounted oy successful casing of  the well and luck in drilling without'  mishap to a further depth than six-  'toen. hundred feet to which the hole  is, sunk it cannot be" ascertained  whether oil exists in commercially  paying quantities. According to a  settler who lives not far from tho  lake, there is a good deal of activity among prospectors at the head  of the lake. At one point some distance'north of the northern bank in  the direction- of the first canyon,  which is fifteen miles from the most  northern point of the lake, and close  to the south bank of the canyon, excellent gold has been found. While  details of the find are difficult to  .procure owing to the secrecy with  ���������which the prospecting is  being car-  "ried out there seems to be.*no= question but that ^an assayer's report on-  ."the, specimens is- highly /satisfactory.

Burkhart induced' ' a  Okanagan friend'who, by the way, is  a merchant- and , postmaster of a  thriving little burg of that part, to  take home with him ^a car of apples  to sell in his town, says an exchange  The man was here a month, considered' buying an orchard and laid plans  for spending the balance of his' days  in this valley. '  . Mr. Burkhart was' interested to  know the outcome of his friend's apple deal, and -this week received a  letter which explained something of  the reasons why sales .there and in  the east were.not satisfactory to the  grower's. To begin with, the car consisted of well selected varieties', carefully packed, and in- the old days'  would hav netted the grower ,$2.00  or $2.50 per box. Selling agents  however, did not lake kindly to the  idea of another dealer coming into  the territory and taking out apples  and disposing of them in a private  way As soon as it became known that  his apples were in'transit, two agencies immediately diverted cars to  this point and priced apples so low  that the dealer was forced to sell  far below his guarantee. Instead of  cursing the valley and lamenting his  fate, the dealer took the matter philosophically and makes a joke of the  whole affair in the following letter  to Mr. Burkhart.  "The undersigned, intending to  commit suicide by reason of his fail-  ure"in apple shipping business, will  sell at public auction at his farm at   on   the  road,  a  short   dis  tance from the barn, all his belongings: , ^  Viz: \ Poland China*"Bull good as  new; 7 milch cows, 2 of which are  bulls; 2 fall cows and 3 that never  fell; 1 Plymouth"Rock calf, will have  peepies by day of sale if weather permits; Brown Leghorn pigs with their  golden "hair hanging down their  backs; 1 old:fash.iohed wood saw  with .directions for use; i triple expansion patent lever bicycle with full  jeweled mud guards; 1 sky pink sulky plow will be fresh by time of sale  7 forks, 3 of - which are equipped with fly net attachments; a lot  broad and narrow horses; ' 1 Berkshire wheelbarrow geared 120, can  trot pace or gallop; 27 dappled grey  chickens with high water breed; -1  Jagger wagon with the jaggers broken off; 2 falling "top buggies and 1 on  which the top has fell; 1 large Oliver  Chilled hand roller with Valentine  flanges; 1 fine cherry back Jassak  with open-faced'"countenance and a  splendid boxer;'; 1 -double breasted  cupboard, fleece'lined;-- 1 stationary  bake oven; 2 fine hand pa'inted'hand  bobsleds patent automatic cut-off; 1  patent adjustable cross-eyed fountain  pen, just.the .thing for a left-handed  .man; 1 collared dog constructed on  the grasshopped'style; and rather  heavy set; 5 fine goats, 2 of which "do  excellent work, 2 are willies with red  whiskers, and.they are' all very  strong. ���������  .  .

Mysteries in the production of gasoline, coal oil, fuel oil, "naptha, benzine and other products of the crude  oil are readily penetrated by visitors  to loco, the site on the North shore  of Burrard*Inlet of the great plaift of  the Imperial Oil Company, Port Moody's latest industry.  The dearing'of the. site which is  83 acres in area', and the construct-:,  ion of the plant up to the present  stage, have cost approximately one  million and a quarter dollars, having  occupied practically all of the past  year. An additional plant for manufacturing of lubricating oils, is now  under way. The crude oil is brought  from Peru in tank steamers having  a capacity of over two million gallons  Three of these steamers may berth  simultaneously at the wharf, where  there is a minimum draft of over  thirty feet. Pumped from the ships  the oil passes through a 12-inch pipe  line to the dock pump house where  it is forced up the hill by two electric  pumps of a capacity of 25,000 gallons  per minute, from the storage tanks  one of which is the largest in Canada  being 115 feet in diameter by 35 feet  high with a capacity of 2 1-4 million  gallons, the crude oil is passed  through a battery of stills, where it  is subjected to heat and the vapors  driven off. The various grades of oil  are then run into the agitator where  they are tested with acid. The.finished products are stored in large  shipping tanks where " they can be  shipped in bulk by steamers or in  tank cars by the C. P. R. which has  a track running round the upper end  of the inlet from its main line on the  south shore.  Fu&tfm������&.  time to  it?  r  W  ^ vriti     ABBOTSFORD   l>OST  'ABBOTSFORD,   B.
