Preliminary Hear-  <-" ing*- Commenced   Thursday  'According to the .evidence produced here today, I shall have to com-  ,mit* for..trial Knud Knudson as the  real murderer, and Carl 0. Knudson,  the father, as an accessory; and at  the same time hold Ragmal as a  material wittness; 'but there is not  sufficient evidence to commit for trial  William Knudson," said Magistrate  King of Matsqui Municipality, after  summing up the evidence at the pre  liminary, hearing of the Sibou murder trial at Abbotsford on Thursday  ' afternoon at the court house.  -Magistrate King and Magistrate W.  Merryfield presided, while Mr. Martin  of New. Westminster "prosecuted on  the part of the Crown, and J. Hampton Bole of New Westminster acted  on behalf of the Knudsons; .Ragmal  was without a lawyer.  W. H. Mathewson, manager of the'  Canadian Bank of Commerce, Mission  City, /gave .evidence as obtained in  regard to business transacted through  the bank by the Hindoo,; Ragmal; as  did also R. M.Owen, manager of the  Bank of Nova Scotia, Mission City.  Mrs. JY B. Cade,:of Mission City,  who wrote,a' letter.for: Ragmal, tes-;  tified'as identifying the letter; also  Ragmal and. C.; 0. Knudson.  Ragmal, who has a fair knowledge  : of English, gave testimony similar, to  that brought out at the inquest and  produced in this'lssue, with little variation, his-lawyer had'not appeared  to assist him, and also/that he was  very severely cross-examined by the  both 'lawyers.  Mona was then called and tried .to  .show, that in^the time between when.  "Sibou had been missing and the time  he had informed the police that Rag^  mal had acted very strangely. One  time Ragmal .would say that Sibou  had gone to-Vancouver, another time  to Nanaimo and still another time to,  Victoria.. Sibou' was supposed to-  havegone to India, but not' having  heard from him from Shanghai, Hong  Kong, or any of the points between  Vancouver and India, the Hindoos  had become- anxious about Sibou who"  was supposed to have had some money on his person. The fact that  Ragmal had apparently "lied" about  Sibou's whereabouts might show that  he could not tell the truth in court,  was the extent - of the questioning by  J. Hampton Bole. -  Constable Cannon testified' .as .to  being called upon on March 5th .by  a Hindoo in regard to the disappearance of Sibou, and on March 6th he  .had gone to Mt. Lehman".      He had  I dug a hole about seven    feet    deep  I near Ragmal's shack and had found  a piece "of, turban as produced in the.  court. "* " '-''"..  Later he had gone back and fourid  under some firs what he believed to  be charred remains. At another  place were burnt clothes. One Sunday he was looking for the skull and'  found some bones well burned, but  managed to get a few bones and  took-them to Dr. Stuart, the coroner,  who found pretty:much' the bones  of the skull. Last Sunday, he washed some of the-ashes and found the  remains of gold teeth.  What did you say to, Ragmal .about  giving evidence?, "I told him?to tell  the truth about it and it*would' be  better for him. I; also told him< 'I  would keep him until he did tell the  truth. He asked me once 'Suppose  one man kill" Hindoo and    another  man burn body, who would the government hang?'" ,    '-       .��������� ��������� '  All bones, .gold teeth,'etc., were  produced in court and marked as  exhibits. '' \  J.( Hampton Bole was. unprepared'  to go ahead.with the defence.   -  - Mr. Martin ythen addressed - the  magistrates, stating that. William  Knudson was not there that day. ' Of  course he' was, implicated- in trying  to assist-the'Hindoo across-the line,  but'I don't think there Is enough evidence to send li'im up for trial. But  as for'the father and Knud Knudsen  he would ask that they be commmit-  de for trial. [, The evidence that has  been given Is' siich .as requires investigation. There was .no -doubt in', his'  mind that suc$ suspicious circumstances points to .the guilt of crime,  and- that crime' was committed by  Knud Knudsen "arid that his father,  a party in the joint enterprise,' that  he did everything possible to get rid  of the Hindoo, body. The' circumstances'1 were such'that it.wouldbe a  miscarriage - of;'justice if it,���������were.hot  investigated. -r-He. thought there was  sufficient evidence to demand;'a. trial.  J. Hampten>Boli,r'for'theKnudsens,  did not think'^ there was-; enough evidence to cpmraitt"the two .men,"for  trial.     - RagnialV* was' a, "confessed  liar" -and haying lied to' the .police  officers on ori������ occasion, why,should-  he not lie.on'.a second occasion���������to  save his  neck;?',  One  suspicious  utterance ��������� and- he'iriade .the most of it  possible, was.the,asking,of sthe police  as to who would ;*geY the punishment  ���������the man .jfoc{killed the Hindoo or  .the -man;, who, bu'i%ed*th'e~bbdy ?:v" He"  swore positively'the Hindoo was killed, but also swore as positively that  he did not know how the body was  . disposed of,'and. that is as far'as-he  ever" got.    To believe-one part    of  his story, was to - believe  all. "   He  did riot know that the body had been  burned,.* yet  his  Hrst  question  that  he asks the constable was about the  killing of the- Hindoo.' ';'...-.-'.:' ���������'  r  , ��������� Ragmal was'"hard .-up V.for ^.teady.  money,-and probably yielded to' temptation."  -The Hindoo was of a.crim7  inal;nature.- "He   could   not'under--  atand how a white man could take  a .Hindoo into his house. ��������� He trusted  the-magistrates would consider very  seriously-the sending up of the two  mne^on the Hindoos' evidence.

Holiday Event in Abbotsford. Yesterday   Was   aSuccess   in  Every   -  Little Detail.  May-dew, the dew appearing on  the first day of the month of flowers known by the ancients for- centuries and religiously believed by  them to contain magical properties  never was more welcome, to our fore  fathers, than to the fortunate citizens of Abbotsford and visistors trom.  far and near who celebrated May Day  here yesterday.  ���������'One of the prettiest of old time  cusoms, handed down' to us from' the'  days of pompous- Rome, wlien the  day was celebrated by the crowning;  of a May Queen, or to be explicit,'  Flower Queen, it has survived where  other customs would have perished,  arid though having been abandoned  to'some, extent during the last century, is being revived with.a vigor  that shall not be denied and will undoubtedly remain now for. all time  to come.'  "\In ,far^away..Epgland,.Servia, iBul-%  garia,  Roumahia and    France,    the  custom of celebrating the first day of  May is'enthusiastically and religiously carried out in various ways, but  the astounding feature in- all these  countries is the crowning of a May  Queen.    It requires no great stretch  of' imagination to vividly picture the  little foreign"children, in their, quaint  dress carrying .garlands, wreaths and  bouquets of flowers and doing honor  to this chosen, queen in a simple and  wholehearted, manner,  that is something beantiful to behold. Indeed .we  have something tangible to be grateful for to our distant cousins inasmuch as we have inherited this custom  from  them,  and  we  hope  that  this* custom has lost nothing in being carried out in our own town.  The skies broke clear, May-dew  was in evidence in the early hours;  the'sun came up, birds were singing with a gladness that was beautiful, everyone awakened..happy' for  were we not going to.-holdouf first  May Day celebration yesterday, and  crown both a Queen and an-Ex-Queen  The crowds assembled, children were  laughing, a band commenced to play  and the celebration was on.

The    procession    formed - in the  school grounds and started towards  Essendene Avenue along' Gladys St.  on towards the Orange Hall,and returned to the grounds again. It was  33 minutes, from the time-it left the  grounds until the parade returned to"  the grounds and gathered around the -  flag pole,at the school steps,"where  the interesting ceremony of crowning"'  the.ex-May Queen, pretty little Edith  Alder. ������  ��������� Rev. Mr. Campbell acted as chairman and  after opening remarks he-  called upon the member for the .district Mr. S. A.

He was' glad that Abbots.  ford was the first town south" of ;the  Fraser Valley to inaugurate ,th' ebld-  timed custom of &, May Day and he  hoped that 'Chilliwack .would "follow  the-good example of Abbotsford arid  have a May Queen of their "own.    He '  was glad to see so many people pres-  ent from all the surrounding districts  Ho" trusted  everyone present would  -have a" good time. ���������   '   ���������  The next item was a song by the  school ^children. .   p  "Then, came the important ceremony of"crowning the ex-Queen, Miss'  Edith Alder, by Reeve'; Meryneld. ������  - -���������William^Merryfield^'Reeve of Matfc-  uiq Municipality, had the honor ol  making the speech for the crowning  of the Ex-Queen. He said in part as  follows:  'Loyal citizens and friends,' we are ,  gathered here today-to inaugurate in  Abbotsford an old time and favored  custom of the Fatherland^ that of  crowning a chosen maid queen of the  May; -   '  For m'any years the citizens of New  Westminster have crowned their May  Queen, but this is the first year we  have done so in-Abbotsford, and we  live in hopes that today's pleasures '  .shall -be   renewed   year  after   year,  and that many shall be the���������Queens  crowned in our home town.  In view of the fact that this is the  first "May Day Festival, it was neces-  sary- to first crown a Queen that she  may act as Retiring Queen. This evening 'at Alexandria Hall, our Ex-  Queen, will crown Miss Jessie "Anderson Queen of the May for the coming  year. This ceremony will be much  more elabcrate, as a splendid program has been pro', ided. ?-   , *  I now take great pleasure crowning Miss Emmie Alder Ex-Queen, and  I ran'assure her that- though- her  reign is brief, it is nonetheless loyal, and that her subjects respect and"  honor her as highly as though she  had reigned the full year. T know  everyone present, joins me in-wishing  you happiness during the few hours  yon aie'to be Queen."  When the crown had been placed  on ilie Queen's head she roae and  responds, after which the citizens  sang "God Save Our Queen.V  The response of the Ex-Queen was  as follows: ': \  "Dear subjects, let me first thank  you all for the honor you have paid  me in crowning me Ex-Queen.. It is  an honor which I may not be granted  more than once in a life-time.  I do not mind my reign being brief  when I know that I am to be sue- ���������  ceeded by one so w.orthy and popular.  And I know that the happiness which'  is mine shall also be hers."  Rcve Munroe of Sumas municipality then addressed the holiday makers in a few well chosen words, after  which the raising of the flag was  the next on the order sheet.

The president in showing that he would do his utmost to  have his board back up an organization that would assist the man who  tills the soil, instanced a certain  grower (names are of. course omitted) who had a special grade of  cabbages, of which he was very proud  and took great pains to cultivate to  perfection, and had shipped a ton to  Vancouver with instructions that he  wanted not less than $20 a ton for  them. The cabbages were sold at  ?10 per ton,'netting the man $9 for  his time and labor. Those interested in seeing how these cabbages  were retailed, followed them to the  stroes of the various retailers, and  with the result that the consumers  of Vancouver bought these same cabbages at the rate of $60 per ton.  This was apparently the reason  why President Rogers was in favor  of some organization for the Lower  Fraser Valley that would assist both  the townspeople and also the producer. A very good reason indeed.  ^ It is of advantage to the people of  Vancouver that the people of that  city can be able to buy the products  of the Fraser Valley, not at an exorbitant price, but,at.a-price that is  to net the producer of the vegetables  or fruit a fair profit for his time  and labor���������a profit that will enable  him to go back to the fertile land of  the Fraser Valley with a determination to make the land bring forth  all that there is in it, because he  has found a market for it���������it is remunerative to him, and not to the  middle man, who is practically a parasite of the. hardworking farmer ^.of  the Fraser Valley^ -.' .'���������':  There are residents not far from  Abbotsford whq could give instances  just the'same as President Rogers'  cabages. ..Thousands of instances  could be gotten from the Fraser Valley farmers without very much trouble. What is the reason for all this?  It is the lack'of organization on the  part of the farmer of the Valley. .  If the carpenter,, the coal miner, or  any other worker, but. the. farmer  had half the reason to complain the  tiller of the soil of the Fraser Valley has, there .would be a howl go  forth that would probably necessitate  the calling out of'the militia to. get  the fellows into line.  The coal miners of Nanaimo    had  not near the reason to complain that .  the  Fraser  Valley  farmer  has,  and  urally believes in the faithfulness of  man���������hence the result of falling the  prey to the man���������the middleman���������  who stands between him and the consumer.  Is there not need of organization  on the part of the farmer���������making  a strong union���������in order to protect  himself??? '���������  , It is up to the tiller of the soil  and the grower of all kinds, of products of the Fraser Valley to organise one large union that will embrace  every man who - has anything to do  with the growing of products for the  market, and it will be the strongest  union that was ever formed.

CITY PLANNING  One of the most noted conferences  held this year in Canada* will take  place'in Toronto next month.to discuss "City Planning' this subject being of vital importance to every progressive  community.  City planning implies three things:  y-:i. . An organized community spirit.  2.  sight.  3. A" sufficient degree of municipal self-control to make' planning  worth whie.  It involves something more tnan  civic beautification���������reven more than  the reservation and development of  spaces for pubic uses. It involves  public control of the development of  esentiai street utiities, especially of  transportation. City planning is impotent unless it goes into the realm  of the invisible, and takes cognizances of franchises, contracts'and vested rights. If these are not brought  under control, city planning is largely futile.  City  planning is  the  name given  for- redistribution of seats in the  Senate ��������� and House of Commons become law, as there is little, room to  doubt, British Columbia will be entitled in the next parliament to six  aditional meriibers of the lower  house  and three new  senators.  For the three new Senatorial seats  there will no doubt be many applicants.  When the senate was established  by the British North America - Act,  the hope and expectation, of the Fathers was that it would always be  composel of, men of experience in  parliament or legislature, of independent mind and ripe ' judgment,  and of unblemished reputation iri public and  private  life.  British' Columbia has one citizen  at least who fills all requirements,  in the person of the Hon. Charles A.  Semlin; of Cache Creek, District of  Yale, and we venture to say that  there is no "man in Canada worthier  of the honor, and none who 'would  give more valuable service as a member of the national upper chamber.  For more than a quarter of a.century Mr. Semlin sat.in the provincial  legislature, for a long time as leader of a party, and for the last two  years as premier of the province. For  many years the then undivided riding of Yale returned three members  There are still- hundreds of old timers . In Hope, .Yale, Lytton, Nicola  arid Ashcroft, who regardless of the  changing-of party'affiliations, reserved one vote always for "Charlie"  Semlin, arid they are still proud of it  Mr. Semlin has seen the dividing  lines change again and again, he has  seen personal friends in ^opposing  ranks and fourid political opponents  as temporary allies. It is striking  proof of his integrity, courtesy and  kindliness that, in the biterest political and personal strife, no voice has  ever accused him of wrong doing, of  bad faith or ingratitude.  The appointment of senators has  not always been above suspicion. The  qualifications of some appointee's of  the last seventeen years are not obvious, unless it be the historic qualification that '"he needs it."  Iri making the appointments the  government will of course, be guided  by the recommendation of the'present members from British Columbia  arid they in turn by the voice of  their constituents. Here is a golden  oportunity. The appointment of Mr.  Semlin, will be a well merited honor to a veteran who has given years  of faithful and efficient service to  his country, and will rebound to the  credit of all who are in any way  responsible for the appointment.���������  West Yale Review.

A farmer does  not ^necessarily buy a- cow because  the price is low, he wants quality, in  this case quality may be interpreted  to mean dairy capacity, or ability  to produce plenty of good'milk. If. he  doe3 not purchase, possibly the heifer coming into milk has been raised  at rather too high a cost so that her  dairy quality is impaired. She may  not be of the right stock, that is  from a dam wf deep milking quality  and a sire, of, known, ability, and all  may have suffered from the lack of  the right fed."  The other part of the value, side  of every dairy cow, that is, what you  get from her, is right in the dairy  mans own'hands. He can easily determine each cow's value, or dairy  quality, by keeping individual records of production. Then if he wishes to part with a good cow her selling  price is enhanced by reason of that  certificate of value, her record, which  helps to fix the price. Right buying  is:true economy; the factory patron  with the highest conception of valuo  will buy, or raise, right, and will  know by his own. simple records that  each cow.in.the herd separately,'not  averaged in a lump, fits his ideal of  value. Fix a good standard, make  each cow pay. Milk and feed re'ejord  forms are supplied free by the dairy  commisioner, Ottawa.
