 ^  TORI A  Provincial   Library  With which is incorporated "The Huntingdon Star"  Vol. XV., No. .25.  4BBOTSF0RD, B, C.   FRIDAY,   MAY 3, 1918  $1.00 per Year  CAN A 1)1 AN PEO PLE  DO NOT WANT TITLES  Mr. F. tt. Stacey, [Member for Westminster District, Makes Maiden  Speech in Commons.  dis-  the  UNIT!' THEHE IS STRENGTH  The following letter is being sent  to all parts of the Fraser Valley by  thc Vancouver Board oL" Trade:  There is in connection with this  Board's activities a Bureau known as  the "Greater Vancouver and ' Lower  'Mainland Bureau" which has for its  object the development of the above  district.  This Bureau was formed at the request of several business men doing-  business outside of this city, with a  view to endeavoring to bring into  closer touch with all those resident  in Vancouver the problems and difficulties which are at present facing  the towns and municipalities .of tlie  outside districts.  It is the object of this Board to  foster community spirit throughout  the entire province and we believe  that if the districts continguous to  Vancouver can be brought into closer touch with each "other,; the question of securing the co-operation of  the whole province will be very much  simplified.  This board is prepared to assist to  the fullest extent in any effort to  bring together into one strong organization every part of the community.  There is at present represented on  the Bureau the municipalities within  what is known as the Greater Vancouver district, but we feel that the  time is opportune for the broadening  of the work of this department of  tlie Board; and to this end wo are inviting you to come to this city and  attend a meeting which is being called to take place on May 29r.li, when  representatives from all the principal  municipalities and cities will be present.  We want you to meet and tell us-  of the potentialities of your district  the development which is being attempted and the plans which you  may have in mind, looking to still  further development. In brief, we  want yon to tell those of us living in  the city what is going on in th���������  country outside of it, and to what  extent, by co-operation, development  could be pushed ahead.  We believe the Board of Trade, is  demonstrating its sympathy with the  welfare of the district surrounding  Vancouver city, in its effort towards  the increase of hog production, by  making provinsion for the assistance  of those reriuiriug.it and desiring to  raise hogs.  We want you to give this matter  your very careful consideration, and  to believe us when we say that it is  our tdesire to help the development  of the province as a whole.  Jf-there has been a feeling in the  past that the main object has been  defeated by a failure to come together because of a desire to sceure some  temporary benefit to ourselves, then  the time is opportune to forget, all  such waste energy, and that now all  should pull together in a proper understanding of one another, and proper apreciation of the great objects  to be achieved.  I am enclosing you a stamped addressed envelope, in which we wish  you to reply, stating whether you will  be able to be present with us on the  above date. Yours very truly  P. G. Shallcross, President;    W.    E  Payne, Secretary of Bureau.  The member for Westminster  trict made his first address to  House of Commons, on April 9th, in  the debate on the subject of hereditr  ary titles, and it is<v almost^ " superfluous to say that a "speaker so 'practised and wellversed made a most favorable impression upon ah attentive  house. Mr. Stacey had been, up before, but it was only for a few minutes on the presentation of the railway bill. There' is the Hansard report of his address on title :s  Mr.   F.   B.   Stacey     (Westminster  District): Mr. Speaket, I have only a  few words to say at this hour, but I  venture to think that che -House will  permit a new voice from the far west  to express his very hearty endorsat-  ion of the principles that have been  so ably and fully set forth this after-'  noon and evening.    1 labor under , a  disadvantage and a handicap. Being  a new member, f have been careful  to read the rules of the House and I  find   there  is' a  prohibition   against  repetition.    Tt  is,   therefore,   almost  Impossible to avoid the consequences  of an injunction at this hour. I think  I voice to some extent the opinion of  the far west when I say that the expressions that have been made here  today will give to the people of the  West intense satisfaction and delight  We were inclined to think that perhaps  radicalism  would  find  or' had  found   its   fullest   expression   in   the  West.    But I do not think there has  been heard from any platform in the  West any more radical or thoroughgoing  democratic    expressions    and  statements than have been made here  this afternoon from the old provinces  of Ontario and Quebec.  I would not presume to pass any  criticism whatever upon any English  habits or customs at thc present time j  We know that the premier of Groat,  Britain  has  stated  openly and  pub-;  iicly his great debt and gratitude to i  the labor unions of Britain.  He has ]  gone out of his way, if I may say so, J  Lo  express   his  intense     satisfaction  with  the attitude  of  the  labor ele-'  B. C. Farmers  Buying Tractors  ' The tractor is fast- coming inr.o  prominence amongst the rachers of  the British Columbia Pacic coast  and the farmers of today are realizing that if the demand for greater  production of food stuffs is to be  met the cultivation must proceed upon speedy methods and upon scientific lines with up-to-date power and  machinery.  The tractor system in France ��������� is  under military law and arranged in  the form of batteries. During the,  months of July August and September of 1'917 these batteries ploughed  10,(572 acres harvested 5,335 acres  cleaned and levelled 250 acres and  dug up stubble from 650 acre's.  It is understood that ��������� several of  these tractors have been purchased  by farmers on Matsqui prairie who  are now awaiting them. ?  PERSONALS  Mrs.  fined to  con-  with  Mrs. A. A. Lane of Mission City  was a visitor to Abbotsford on Thursday..  Mr.- Boley  has  purchased a   Ford  car.  thought  that after all  the  voice  of  history is truly, democratic.      Reference  was  made   by  my, lion,   friend  from Sprinfield    to    certain    names  which'are'knownTin history without  any appendage.    The fact is that in  the whole realm of history, whether  .we-take the field of letters, the field  of science, the field of art, the realm  even of religion,-the realm of philosophy or the realm of statesmanship,  the outstanding names in  each  one  of  these departments  is  without    a [  title of any type, shape or character.  To quote the language of one of my  hon.   friends     this  afternoon,     who  would dream of adding any title to  some of the great names of English  history,  particularly  of English  letters?    From Homer down 'to    Lloyd  George they are all alike; they stand  unadorned because they are adorned  with  the  force  of their own merit,  their  own  manhood  and  their  own  superb character.    If I remember my  Canadian history,  I  think  that during the last few years when the people of Canada have been appealed to  to decide some great national question, two or three words would have  summarized   that   appeal.    In   1873  the issue before the Canadian people  could have been summarized in two  words.    In 1878 possibly two words  again would have    summarized    the  character of the appeal. In 18 9 6, possibly three words would have covered the character of the appeal,    tfri'  1911 one word summarized the great  issue and in  1917  I claim that one  single word before the Canadian people from  East to  West' summarized  the character and the nature of the  issue which the    people    of   Canada  'were   called   upon   to   decide.    And,  sir, it it is  feasible, even hypotheti-  cally considered for a moment, that  this  Canadian  parliament  were  dissolved, and an appeal to the country  made  on   one   side,   and   that   issue  were summarized    in    these    words  "Canadian   democracy,"  and   on   the  outer side of the shield "Titled aris-  John  McPhee  has  been  the house over a week  lumbago in her back.

"  ,  Mr. Percy Wilson returned soldier  of   fire  warden   at  mont of England this contribution to- i tocracy," and the people of the country voted on that issue, what would  lie the result?     I  believe  we should  have a. unique thing in the history of  t  he  praliam'Giits  of   the  world���������an  absolutely united government. There  would   not   be  a   man   in   opposition  from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and  then, sir, for once in our life, I  believe we would be free in such a contest   from   all   that  appeals   to   race  and religion    and    everything    else.  They would be all set aside, and the  people  from  the East  to  the West,  and   from   the  North   to   the   South  would unite solidly, and there would  be no words such as some of us deplored having heard in the House of  Commons.    There would be no disagreement such as we.have listened  to in this House,  but from East to  West we.would have a united Canada  and, perhaps, some one might be able  to  compose  a new  national anthMn  that  would  bring  in  the  strains  of  "The Maple Leaf," "0, Canada," and  "God'Save the King" and we would  be no longer    French-Canadians    or  English-Canadians,       but  Canadians  from North to South and    East    to  West.  wards (he victory that is before us as  a people. It becomes us, I take.it, to  confine our criticisms-at. least to our  own country, and our own businesa,  and the question that is before tho  House. Jf there is one reason more  than another why I believe the people of Canada arc in sympathy with  the attitude and action that is proposed this afternoon, it is tills, that  certain people leceive titles which, in  the judgment of those who know  them best, their fellow citizens, their  own friends, they do not deserve. I  may be wrong in some cases, but I  know in many cases this is the deliberate conviction of the people of  Canada. The question may be opposed to this? Answers have been  given in great numbers this afternoon, and I shall sum them all up  in one sentence which, I think, covers the entire ground���������the Canadian  people do not want titles. They have  many reasons for taking that stand  but the result is the same in every  case.    They  believe that true merit  iis,  "when    unadorn'd    adorn'd    the  [most."

On the other'hand there are  many worthy institutions in  the province that -would like, to  have just a little assistance, ev-  en a few thousands, possibly a  lev/ hundreds to tide them over  a difficulty.  Borne months ago the Mission City Telephone Company  after.the recent ice storm intimated- to- the government that  it would like to have assistance  to rebuild a public institution,  run for the common welfare of  the people; and nobody could  accuse the company of running  it for great financial gain, and  ��������� well did the government help?  No, not a bit. And if we are  correctly informed has to a certain extent been     .'after them'  . sii-ee the storm.  A few weeks ago a delegation  i'rtm the Fraser Valley waited  on the government to ask assistance in eradicating the mosquito pest���������to the extent of a  fev/ hundred dollars for oil and  a systematic way of distributing it on the pools where the  mcfiquitoes originate.

"Canada Food Board,  " Ottawa  " In these stern days it is inspiring to learn.that Canada is tackling the  food problem with redoubled energy. The terrific pressure on our  military front makes it all the more imperative that those behind the  line should strain every nerve to defeat the enemy's avowed object of  destroying the British Empire.  "Germany hoped first to starve the Old Country by the submarine  campaign and then to smash her,land forces. She has failed to starve  us and she will fail to smash us but wa cannot achieve victory without  food. There never was a time when it was more needed.  " The Canadian farmer and the Canadian farmhand now have the  opportunity to make an effective reply to the enemy's present  onslaughts by bending their undivided energies to the increased  production of those food supplies for which we depend to such vital  extent upon your great Dominion."       ^^        ��������� RHONDDA"  London, April 10th  The Prime Minister of Canada, in  a call to Greater Food Production,  says: "The crisis is grave and urgent  beyond possibility of exaggeration."  Our Allies are depending upon  Canada to produce this year more  cereals���������������������������especially Spring Wheat���������and  more meat���������especially Pork.  The world shortage will inevitably  continue for years after the war���������with  this continent the nearest source of  supply for the 200,000,000 persons in  Europe who will be> clamoring for food.  Measures have been taken and plans  have been formulated which, on the  authority of the Director of Agricultural  Labor, will provide help needed for  harvest. v  Gity and town people who cannot  go on the farms are helping to feed  themselves by growing their own vegetables, so that the farmers may grow  more food for export.

The Y. M. C. A.
' That the Canadian' Y. M. C. A. is
playing a big part overseas in.the
winning of the war, by virtue of its
work among the C.E.F. is amply
borne out by the following extracts
of letters to "Y" secretaries by officers connected with Canadian units
fighting in France.
Lieut.-Col. Sam Sharpe, Commanding 116th (Ontario County) Canadian Infantry Battalion���"From my
experience of the work of the Y. M.
C. A.both in England and in France,
it cannot be over estimated. I find
that tlie Y. M. C. A. is an excellent
organization, of which I cannot
speak too highly. Its social and moral
influence is very great and all ranks
of the battalion are a unit in expressing their high appreciation'of the
work of.the Y. M. C. A. Its facilities
for correspondence and intercourse
and its efforts to amuse and instruct
the men are, known to all ranks, and
1 cheerfully give my testimony to the
great work the Y. M. C .A.is carrying
on for the comfort and entertainment of the troops."
A. S. Donaldson, Lt.-Col C. A.M.C.
Officer Commanding No. 3 Canadian
Field Ambulance���"The extremely
difficult and trying conditions with
which the Y.M.C.A. has to contend,
the carrying of the organization's
canteens and institutions right into
thc forward.areas, and the excellent
services rendered and facilities afforded under these circumstances
are deserving of the highest praise
and make the organization one of
which Canadian Corps has indeed
reason to be proud."
D. M. Oxmode, Lt.-Col. O. C. 10th
Canadian Batt.���"It gives me the
greatest pleasure to express my deep
apreciation of the great and grand
work your institution is and has been
carrying on with ...the Expeditionary
Forces for the last 3 8 months. This
Unit lias had the very closest touch
with your institution, and we have
undying memories of the late Capt.
Os'.iar Irwin and Capt. Harry Whitenia n, as both of these splendid fellows made a lasting impression on
tlie Unit."
Lieut. -Col. James Klrckaldy, Canadian Infantry Batt.���"To properly
apreciate the true work of this splendid organization ono has only to visit
tho coffee stalls whsre hot coffee and
refreshments are sorvetd free to men
returning from the line, cold and wet
���to visit the advanced dressing stations and there to see the wounded
men as comfortably as possible���to
attend one of the many nightly concerts in the area further back and
see the men thoroughly enjoy the
splendid entertainment provided���to
watch our men at games, football*
baseball, etc., all arranged by theY.
M. C. A."
Lieut.-Col. Acting 0. C. 9th Inf.
Batt.-���"Before we return to the forward area 1 want to expres to you,
and all those associated with you in
your good work, on behalf of our
men, our appreciation of your efforts
To my mind the healthy sport and
amusement which you have provided
for us go a long way towards keeping up that spirit of cheerful optimism, which is such a valuable asset
at t his time. "

If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you
can't) stop evory man you meet on the streets
asd ask: "Do you want to buy a pair of shoes?"
(Or any other kind of goods) You might find-
half a dozen who would say "Yes.". Perhaps not
one of-these, however, would want to buy the
article you want to sell.
If your advertisement, however, were to be
printed in these columns this week, it would
"stop" EVERY MAN IM TOWN WHO WANTS
TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY
OTHER ARTICLE���and it wouldn't "stop" any-
��a�� wh�� didn't want to buy- That's the beauty
of the advertising way of finding a buyer. The
ad. finds the buyer through the simple process of
being easily and readily found BY th�� buyer -
And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,
there is on�� to whom your goods would b�� a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell
what you want to sell.
