I do. not believe that the  congestion on the railways, which has  caused .such serious loss and inconvenience to the commercial and indus  trial interests of the country the past  year,' will ever be relieved .until an  officiel with full power.to regulate th'e  traffic on the various lines has been  appointed. The British Government  early in the days after war broke out,  dealt with this problem in the manner suggested, and the results have  been very satisfactory. It is intolerable that the present, situation should  be allowed, to continue. The economic-loss to the country is heavy and  could to a- large extent be avoided by  enforced co-operaton between the  various lines. .  What England Has Done  The  Master  of Transportation  ui  England has absolute power over the  routing o'f traffic.    If  he  finds  that  one line has more, buiness    than    it  .can   conveniently  handle   while  another line has less than it can    take  care'of.he switches the traffic from  the busy line to, the idle one.      the  result is a greatly improved service  for all concerned.    I  am only suggesting this as a Avar measure, and  would not for a moment    think    of  proposing that this    official    should  have control or direction of operation  His duties would be confined to the  supervision of  the moment of ��������� traffic for the'convenience of the public.  How It Works in Montreal  The Montreal harbor board has an  official whose duty it is to handle all  the  railway trafllc  on  the wharves.  This prevents any clashing or    discrimination in the delivery of goods  to the vessels.    If there were a similar official with the    authority    of  the Government at. his back, .to-.con  trol the traffic on the railways, there  is no reason why the home traffic,  as well as the export business could  not be handled to the advantage of  all concerned. In . England, the  Master of Transportation has the  power to take rolling stock and put it  in the terminals that require it.  ��������� Steps should be taken by the Government to prevent a recurrence of  the conditions of the past winter,  Sailings have had to be countermanded and steamers have been-held  up because the railways did not deliver the freight to them���������Ex.-/  PATRIOTIC  FUND  List of contributors to the Canadian-Patriotic Fund form Clayburn  works.

The stores  were closed during, the funeral  hour.  Mr. Ware Sr. Was a visitor to  Vancouver this week.  Last Friday night Mr. Carter, the  potato buyer and Mr. De Lair were at  Huntingdon and some one must have  known Mr. Cater had money, as when  they were returning to Abbotsford  Mr. Carter stopped his car to let Mr.  at De Lair road. They  turned the flashlight on De Lair,  demanded his money. They only  got four dollars. They got the  wrong  man.  Last Friday afternoon and evening was quite exciting around Abbotsford. It was election day for  the two young ladies who were running for the representatives of this,  district for the carnival in Westminster.

No brighter  one ever greeted children who waked  on a holiday morning���������and it kept  bright all clay too, being one of the  grandest and most ��������� perfect ever enjoyed by-any holiday, makers. Every  boy and girl, and many of their elders of xibbotsford and district, retire this oyenin'g feeling that again  their May Day had been honored  with natures broad smile���������even if  'tlie weather was brought from New  Westminster by acting- mayor Johnson'?

In other words,    the    production  of the commodity   is   the   growers  outlook and takes that responsibility  fully   on   himself.    His   responsibilities Bhould end'   there,    but-.they  don't.    Why is it that after months  of toil, of careful attention ancl protection that the grower cannot    receive his returns on a f. o. b. basis?  The only answer we have.been able  to get to this question   .is    that   it  is'nt done, is not customary.    There- ,  fore!the grower after producing his  stuff ancl delivering    for    shipment  has to take the risk in transit, the.  further risk of inspection at    lon'g-  de-  distance points, the risk of congest-  the ed markets at point of consignment.

The chairman reminded the audience that last year on the annual  day it was hoped that the war would  be ended, but sorry to say it was  still going on. However it was the  wish" of the soldiers that the children  should enjoy themselves, and thus  was  the reason    for    their    happy  privilege to buy at a cash price and  sell to whoever he likes at whatever he likes. In the past it has  been the brokers privilege to get  lots of stuff and sell it at what it will  bring, particular. pains being taken  to see that selling price covered  full brokerage expenses. While  are brokers who never buy outright,  there are others who thro correct  buying are in the, field to. pay a fair  cash f. o. b. price to grower, and thus  reieving him of the risk of long-distance marketing. This is -a good  move in the right direction and a  boon to the fruit and vegetable industry of the province.'

New  Westminster, after telling the audience he was not has handsome or  eloquent as the man he was present  to represent, made the speech of the  afternoon. He was accustomed to  be present at May Day celebrations  being at the first one in New Westminster in 1870 this year he spoke  to 18,000 there. He paid the ladies  a groat compliment (reporters were  not to mention il.) by saying that ho  had always thought the ladies of  his home town were the prettiest  anywhere, but had changed(?) his  idea, as now he thought the ladies  just as nice if not a little (wh-sh-sh)  He referred to the lady of Abbotsford, meaning Mrs.'Mane, who had  knit a pair of socks a day since the  war started.

The announcement that the fruit-  gathering army of women and girls  that is shortly to invade the Fraser  Valley will be enoouragod to wear the  masculine garb, is an item of news  which.'shows'that necessity sometime  ," rises superior,to fashion and custom.  The British sisters of these workers  have already lod the way to trousers  and thousands of them are now working on the farms of the Uunited Kingdom. Such a departure, in a land  that, is moro conservative with regard to convention and tradition  than we have in the west, indicates  that resourcefulness     has     been  brought to tho forefront    of    things.  It was a decided innovation for tho  women of   Britain, many    of    them  persons of education,-to become agricultural   laborers.     But   it   was   a  greater defiance of ancient prejudice  on their part when  they    discarded  the drapery.that had  been transmitted from past ages as proper of their-  sex.  ' Ancient   precedent   may   no   doubt  be found for tho resolve    of    these  feminine   agriculturists.,        Leaving  aside  that  mediaeval  edition  of  the  Bible which declares  that when our  first' parents- became   conscious     of  their-   paucity ��������� .-of     garments     they  "sewed-fig leaves together and made  themselves   breeches,"   there   seems  to  be. a  likelihood  that   -when     the  , savages' in    Britain ���������.. were*   attiring  themselves in the. skins of wild animals and painting the exposed parts  of their bodies with "wood," the'women' of  the  ��������� older '��������� ��������� civilization    of  China- were-already, wearing    those  nether;garments    which,    as a matter of    convenience    and    propriety;  have .never'-   been " excelled.      One  reason of the'exodus of women berry-pickers "to the-Fraser.Valley is to  obviate-.a- previously supposed neces-  ���������   slty:)forr; Chinamen.       It    is    rather  noteworthy'  that    they    have    discovered  no better* scheme that that  invented' by 'Chinese   women    many  centuries  ago. :  Mrs1:-"Ann-'Bloomer  endeavored   to  introduce-, a-,bifurcated   costume   for  women,nearly seventy years ago. But  she was before her time,*and her ef-  forst 'gained but scant appreciation,  though at the.time of the great exhi-  biion:in London-in 1885, an occasion  that .bought people from the ends of  the earth and  was  favorable to the  inception of new things, a few daring:-fashionables  came out now and  again In Hyde Park in Bloomers.  It seems probable that a certain section of the feminine world will permanently adopt a modification.of. the  garb- of man,- even when, the necessity for it has- passed    away.       The'  reason that most women.will not do  so lies in the fact that a'consensus of  opinion has decided'that'women-look  better  ih  partially  concealing  robes  than in either-trousers-or, tights.    A  via  -'media:  in     feminine    costume  which .a'few .years ago decreed'that'it  was a want of politeness to suppose  that the Queen of Spain    had    any  legs, does notgo to    the:   other    ex-  said cheque was endorsed by Mr.  Doniinick Burns of the City of Vancouver .and discounted at the Canadian Bank of Commerce at' the City  of Vancouver; aud the proceeds  paid to Dr. Robert MacKenzie of the  city of Vancouver  2. That the ��������� said Dr. Robert  Mackenzie put the said money in the  safe of the Motel Vancouver for  safekeeping for a short time and between the eighth and thirteenth days  of September, 1916, probably the  eighth or ninth, took the money ,to  his office, being room 617 Vancouver  Block, in the City of Vancouver, and  there handed it over to the Hon. the  Attorney-General, no other persons  being  present,   tho  money  was  in  a  package. Which Dr. MacKenzie  thought was opened in his orfice but  he was not positive.  ���������1. "I can not find that tho money  paid was tho money of (ho Canadian  Northern Railway; Tho evidence in  fact contradicts such a suggestion.  Dr. MacKenzie testified that R. J.  MacKenzie told him that it was. his  money, and it further appears that  Mr. R. J. Mackenzie is a man of largo  means.  "Mr.. R. J. MacKenzie was not  called and it was stated- by Mr.  Woods that he was not in the province; but-that he had- a telegram  from-Sir William MacKenzie,- saying that R. J. MacKenzio would be  within the province in' a month. 1  was not asked to hold the enquiry o-  pen for the purpose of securing his  testimony.  5. That Dr. Robert, MacKenzie is  a brother of Sir William MacKenzie,  and does not appear to hold any salaried position in the Canadian Northern Railway, but Is the Chief sur-'  geon of the said Railway Company, an.d the remuneration, for hY*  services comes from the. employees  of the railway rather than from the  railway itself.  "There is no evidence produced  before me to show that- R. J. MacKenzie was a director of the Canadian Northern , Railway .in September as claimed by Mr. Cowpers'counsel; but the inquiry on this head was  not proceeded with���������proof of the  fact not being immediately, available  --and. being a matter upon which  any persons interested could easily  satisfy themselves.  "1 endeavored in every-way'to confine  the  inquiry  to   the  substantial  charge made, and not to allow it to  drift  Into  the  general  question     of  raising or the disposition.'  of   .'campaign funds,' but in spite of my efforts, evidence was. given in a. general  way that the moneys raised in cheque  before referred to did not    reach the  'campaign  fund.'        I    thought    in  fairness to the honourable the    At-  lorney-general  who was not.present  when this evidence was    given,   that  the losing of the commission should  be delayed to enable him to make a  general   statement  in     reply.

V.  REPORT IS BASED ON1  MAKENZIES   EVIDENCE  Victoria, May 14.���������Justice F. G.  Gregory, who was commissioner In  the Cowper-Mcdonald enquiry, filec!  his report with the Government on  Saturday. The text .of report is as  follows:  "I am directed by the terms of the  commission'to report- the facts found  by me;-   They are as-,follows:  1. .That on or about the 7th day  of September, 1 916;' Mr...-R. J. MacKenzie  made a  cheque on, the  Can  proceedings before me. , It will be  seen that there was no conflict of  testimony and any person reading.it  can draw the same conclusion that I  have.. All- of which is respectfully  submitted.  THE MINORITY REPORT  Recommendation of Drayton and Ac-  woi-th at Once Creates the Great  Mvil of Political Control.  Railway Officials Express no Opinion  of private administration���������under  reasonable government regulation���������  to give the most efficient arid least  costly service to the public and the  nation and believing-that of-the three  members of the Commission, ' ,Mr.  Smith was ,in the best position to appreciate from an-unbiased standpoint  the practical features of the.problem,  both as to what has been done and  what must be done in the future.  In its attitude in favor of private  operation of public utilities, wc recognize that tho great. fundamental  principle of the uccess of such on-  torprizes is service to the public.  This attitude taken is not a popular  one, but is sincere. Public ownership as a theory cannot be discounted  In practice it is another matter.  In a country" like'Canada, with ' unsettled conditions, and great variety  of national issues with political reflection, and with control by 'politicians, who in the average are opportunists rather than 'statesmen, efficient administration under tne Statu  control is I'ra-.Uci-lly impossible. In  the long run the public pays for'inefficiency in administration. Under  public ownership the finances may bo  juggled in such a manner that the  people are.: falsely enthused by direct  benefits which they pay, heavily for  through .general  taxation.-'  To put into effect the majority report will mean that the government  of Canada will take over and operate roads which will constitute -what  we are told would-be the largest  system in the world with -the exception-of that *��������� of Germany.'.' That  such a system covering, thousands of  miles and endeavoring.to serve a  multitude of interests���������political and  otherwise���������������������������^can be efficient operated  by the government. ��������� is something  which those who understand, the intricacies of large administration and  the looseness of political service-cannot hope for.- To increase the difficulties, such a. system would have  to operate in opposition to the' Canadian Pacific, one of the ��������� most efficient organizations .. in tlie world.  Either one of two things would happen.  If the government endeavored to  compete on a basis of business'equality, ft would.be that looseness of administration which features ��������� public  ownership lose large sums of money  jvhich would either show in the'reports or be covered up in the national finances, thus misleading the public.  Or in order to secure a large share  of business the government system,  backed by misguided-public opinion,  would'reduce rates "to such an extent  that the Canadian Pacific could not  give that efficient service which has  meant and continues to mean, much  to Canada's development. Government losses could either be hidden or  if'shown, made to appear a9 the public contribution for the boom of low  rates.  And just on this point of Canadian  Pacific service it may-be pointed out  that neither report offered the suggestion that this system be taken  over by the government also. If the  government can . efficiently manage  all the other systems .which' are now  more or less crippled, why could it  not take over the C. P. R. as well?
