Our Shibboleth���������Neither for nor'agin the Government.   ���������  ~i  Friday, May 9, 1913  The Fraser Valley Municipal and .Publicity Bureau is responsible for the raising of the question of land clearing for the settler,  and it has  been, a much discussed  question during the past few  months.   Jt has been suggested that the-Government borrow money,  '  which can be done at a low rate .of interest, and re-loan it to the  farmer or fruit-grower for a period of years, taking a first claim on  the land as security.   As land is practically the basic principle of  all wealtli, there can be no sounder, security, provided, of course,  the amount loaned is not excessive and the borrower a man of good'  repute.    Many people, however, dread the present system of. mort-'  gage when given to a private concern or corporation. ��������� So many have'  been rendered homeless in this manner, as the high rate,of interest  and short term of loan is to the advantage of the moneylender.   It  is not likely that-our Provincial Government will go into the loan  business for the clearing of the land for the settler, although-it  might not be a bad stroke of business on .their part to have the agricultural land of the province settled with men who will add to the ���������  revenue of the Province.   In many-countries of the world, notably  Germany and France, the farmer can secure money on his land from  the government at a very low rate of interest, but as a rule it must  be "taken for a long term of. years���������seventy-five years or upward.  This passes over to the heirs, not the most desired inheritance. '  A family of moneylenders in Illinois has worked out a scheme for  serving farmers and city home owners that would appear to be a  very good substitute for the government method, and there is no  reason why it should not be more widely adopted. The Woodruff  family has been in the mortgage and loan-business for oyer fifty  years in the State of Illinois, and has studied, of course, the business  at close range as conducted in many countries. A plan has been  adopted of giving a rate of seven per cent, on loans for thirty years  on unincumbered lands and homes.. These loans are automatically  discharged by the payment of seven per cent, interest every six  months for the period of thirty years. ~ The mortgagor for a loan  of a thousand dollars would pay $25 twice each year, or $2,100 in  thirty years. This would wipe out the debt. If he obtained an  ordinary Joan at four per cent., Avhich is usually half the amount  paid in the west he would in the thirty years pay $1,200, and still  owe the face value of the loan.'  The Woodruffs conduct their business as a trust company. With  a capital, of $100,000 they can handle loans to the extent of $1,000.-  000, as they deposit the mortgages with a trust company in Chicago  and sell bonds against-them. These bonds find ready sale among  small and large investors. It is "a system worth investigation by  our Government or provincial capitalists.  ROYAL   COMMISSION  ON   AGRICULTURE  If both agricun-ire and industry are  to prosper in this province there must  be a readjustment' of the balance between agricultural effort and production and industrial employment and  production, stated Professor Charles  Hill-Tout before the Agricultural Com  mission which met in Abbotsford on  Friday and Saturday last. By careful comparison of the agricultural reports of the last two years he proceeded to show that agricultural production in the province was declining.  Ho believed that co-operation was  the only solution, but believed a government organizer should be employed  hy each co-operative association in  order to eliminate as much ;as possible  personal jealousies such as detracted  from effective administration. There  had been three attempts at co-operation in that district and they had  failed because of petty jealousies and  lack of proper administration.  He'certainly'agreed with govern  ment loans at. low .interest for'agri  cultural development and in govern  ment assistance towards land dealing. Stumping powder should if pos  sible be free.  Reliable inside information as to  the creation iOf the present situation  regarding the sale of hay was also  adduced at the session when professor  C. Hill-Tout in the course of his evidence stated that three of the largest  firms dealing in hay had before this  year's crop was ready for ' market  entered into contracts with Washington producers for the supply of large  quantities of that commodity at a  reasonable figure. It would doubtless be remembered that some -two  years ago the visible supply of hay  became very low and local ranchers  took advantage of this opportunity  to boost prices to an exorbitant state.  in order to meet the requirements of  this season the above mentioned contracts were negotiated, but the outlet for local hay was not taken into  consideration,. with the result that  the Vancouver and other B. C. markets were glutted.  The first witness examined Saturday was Mr. S. A. Morley, manager  of the Abbotsford branch of the Royal  Bank of Canada. He testified that  the larger portion of agriculturists  were in a sound condition financially.  Mr. C. D. Bell, a prominent rancher, submitted evidence as to the general state of the farming industry.  The marketing system was a burning  source of grievance: Fair prices for[j  produce were the .exception and not  die rule at the Vancouver and New  Westminster .markets. The only  remedy for this state of affairs was  in -a closer co-operation amongst the  producers and -government aid in  promoting this system would be most  beneficial. The nourishing of agriculture in the province waji essentially a national - duty and formed the  oasis of the permanent prosperity of  this country.  Speaking, of dairying he considered  die "milk industry the only really  lucrative" branch of farming ,as -the  demand always  exceeded  the  supply.  The grovnug of crops was . always  more or less of a gamble as there  was no certainty of disposal of produce in the market under present  conditions. lie advocated the establishment of centres where pedigreed bulls would be' available for  free service to the cattle of any  rancher in the valjey.  Ii.   Skouge,  a  resident  of  the  district  for  nine  years,    farmed     forty  acres. The marketing conditions were  very discouraging as hay could not be  sold   to  .allow   for  any   profit   to   the  producer.    The  inllux of    this    commodity from Washington was responsible for the low prices and  he considered some "protection should be afforded  local producers.    The present  unequal duties were a rank injustice.  The drainage at Matsqui Prairie required government aid as there were  many settlers unable fo get rid of the  water  for .want of an  outlets     This  proposition was too  expensive a one  to be undertaken by individual ranchers and should receive attention by the  Public Works Department. The roads  would be- much easier to keep in re-  pair if a satisfactory drainage system  were in operation.  Mr. A. F. Welch also advocated a  better drainage system for the district. The supply of an outlet was  necessary if Matsqui settlers were to  be enabled to continue to farm their  holdings. ���������.    .  .The chief grievance locally, however, he believed; was the. present  system of-carrying out road -work.  He suggested that it be taken entirely out of the hands of the riiu'nici-  pality ,and placed in the hands of the  governmental department. " Competent engineers should be appointed to  supervise contracts c and it would  be possible-to obtain double the improvements  for  the -expenditure.  The fire law .worked to the disadvantage of the farmer. He was  very often unable to obtain permits  to burn when most needed. The fire  wardens appointed should be more  competent and vested with greater  discretionary powers. He favored  cheaper loans for development work.  Mayor E. Pottinger, a comparatively  recent arrival in the district, advised  the establishment of a bureau where  reliable.information could be obtained  by new settlers. Guaranteed seed  "should also be available to ranchers.  He thought..government aid in negotiating municipal bonds for building  roads would -be beneficial.  Mr. G. W. Gellett gave evidence  as to the poor marketing facilities afforded for fruit. He had grown  some of the finest fruit in the province ancl with the exception of a few  cases sold locally had been compelled  to feed the same to his hogs.  Arthur Harrop testified that he  was cutting out his orchard as he  had found it a losing proposition. He  instanced a shipment iOf 780 cases of  prunes. Owing to delay in .transportation 360 cases were condemned on  arrival. Freight charges amounted to  37 1-2 cents per box, which, adding 17  cents for the box, totalled 55 cents.  The sales netted him from 15 to 40  cents per case, involving an actual  loss.of money.  ULLING  on  your boot straps  will not get you very far.  Buy a set of  B. .J GERNAEY,   Abbotsford, B.

It is said that .while  .the milk from the Fraser Valley is  tested for tuberculosis, the same milk  if shipped to the American side of the  line is allowed to reach tho householder in Vancouver without the tuberculosis test.  It is a well known' fact that the milk  venders of Vancouver tell the Fraser  Valley farmer that the highest price  that they can pay him for milk ii 35c,  while if the same milk is shipped to  (he .American side of the line the  dairymen can get 7c more for it and  yet, after paying duty io and from the  MARKET   REPORT.

Carnation bedding  plants were to be had in abundance  this morning at three plants for 25c,  cauliflower and cabbage bedding plants  could be had at 75c a hundred.  Poultry, although prices remained  unchanged, was mofe abundantly  supplied to the shoppers than has  been the case for some weeks past  jut there is still a great scarcity of  ducks and consequently the' high,  .prices for this feathered commodity  still prevailed. Some extra fine hens  were * sold at 231-2 cents a pound,  but the majority brought only 23  cents.  Meat remained unchanged and it  is not anticipated that there will be  any change in this department for  some time at least. Butter remained  the same at 40c a pound.

He first  "weighed the chickens, orates and all,  then the crates alone, and after ;v  severe strain in' mental arithmetic, in-,  formed the poultry raiser that - the  crates weighed more than the chickens, and in a case of this kind it was  customary to keep the chickens and  only charge for the weight of the  crates. The charges iu .this instance  would amount to 30 cents.  RECEIVED   A   SEVERE   JOLT  What might have resulted in a serious accident, but happily only resulted in the. shaking up of several passengers and the damage to two cars, occurred on Monday afternoon last, when  tho milk train bound for Chilliwack,  collided with the passenger coach on  the B. C. E. R. at Voddar station. It  appears that the afternoon milk train  was late and in endeavoring to make  up time-crowded on more speed; than  usual, and instead of being able fo  stop'at the switch at the station,  where the." passenger-coach-was waiting to cross, skidded some distance  .Avith the result that the coach Avas  severely bumped and its occupants  badly shaken up^  Among the passengers was Mr. E.  Go wan, of-Abbotsford, who received a  nasty ciit on the head.  SPORTING  EVENTS  Considerable interest is being taken  in lacrosse, and ori Saturday afternoon a fine practice Was held, many  of the old timers turning out and proceeded to give the younger members  a correct imitation of how the game  should bo played.  What is the matter Avith the Tennis  Club-?  Football seems to be finished for the  season, although the Langley team  journeyed to Mission City on Saturday with the expectation of meeting  the Abbotsford boys for the Haddod  Cup, but through some misunderstanding no team was sent from Abbotsford; Manager Heath stated that Tie  informed the Langley team prior to  Saturday that no team would be available.  An'-exhibition'ganie of lacrosse was  played on the local grounds last Thursday between teams from Chilliwack  and Matsqui, and although Matsqui suffered defeat lo the tune of 7 to '1, they  put up a very creditable game considering they were playing against more  experienced players.  Preparations are now being made  for a game between Matsqui and Abbotsford at a recent date. This  should prove very interesting as the  teams  are  about evenly  matched.  Tlie newly formed Abbotsford lacrosse club will hold a social, concert  and dance on Friday, May 16, at 8.30  p.m. Everyone should attend and help  the boys in the formation of their  club. The dance will start at 10 p.m.  The price of admission is twenty-five  cents and tickets may be had -from  any of tho members.

A DISTRIBUTOR OF WEALTH  The only province in -Canada that  forbids the use of automobiles within  its borders is Prince EdAvard Island.  The legislation Avas put into effect  many years ago, at the behest of the  farmers, Avho.at that time regarded the  new machine as an invention of Satan  himself. The objection to the automobile now most commonly, advanced  by the Canadian farmer is that it destroys, the roads, raises clouds of dust,  and is a nuisance to pedestrians or  other travelers on the roads. In Prince  Edward Island the primary objection  was that the automobile frightened  the horses, and since the machines  have never been allowed on the Island  since those early days, the objection  .-"till holds. ,Horses in the other provinces where automobiles have been  common are iioav broken in to the automobile, as a rule. But the Prince  Edward Islanders are becoming tired  of imposing such restrictions on themselves and petition after petition to  the government has been the consequence. It is very justly urged that  the automobile* is a good method of  distributing the surplus Avealth of the  rich into the hands of the Avorkers.  Tts introduction would bring tourist  traffic, help business and now that the  fox-breeding industry'is making so  many millionaires, keep these plutocrats in the province, as the prohibition bears too hardly on their desire  to spend their money. As a matter of  fact, the day for keeping out the automobile has passed, even for the agriculturists, as surely as the day of Indian objections to the railroad.
