Trade  of tlic l-'rasor Valley was organij/id  Friday aft'erno'h last in'the "cify hall  when officers were elected,, a constitution adopted, and several resolutions passed which are of .interest  to tho valley. Mr. N.'- Hill of- ^Abbotsford, the provisional chairman  selected at a meeting held some  weeks ago in Abbotsford, was the  unanimous choice for president, while  -Aid. W. il. Koary was persuaded r,o  |' carry on ' the duties of' seereuiry-  treasurer, Presidents-   " of - '��������� the  boards of trade affiliated with * the  new body-will be .-vice-presidents together with Mr. John Brydges, a3 a  member of the,- executive. ' Mr.  Brydges, Abbotsford,, was one'of* the  'movers of this'organization".  Chilliwack was    supported in,,   its  endeavor.to ��������� have'the    government  1 keep to  its  original  programme    as  .regards' road building between Cliil-  iliwack and   Sardis,  President Theal  of the Chilliwack    board of trade explaining fhatf a   promise   had    been  made  by. the  provincial  department  jof public works.cal.Iing for a ten mile.,  programme.   'This.-had    since been  | cut down'" to five while tenders' were  being called for a matter of only two  'miles.      ;   ��������� -������������������ <'' ",.,-'���������   ���������  "Soft Pedal," Says Paterson  Mr.  Nels Nelson, ".in " supporting  the recommendation for support-  to  the Garden City,    claimed   -that "the  'cost of assembling, plant, "for , road  building -w������iild cost just as much for  ' two'miles^ as-it would    for    ten.    In'  , asking tlTe"associa������ion",'to'JgoT'siow^iti"  its' resolutions relating to roads, Mr."  Alex D.    PateTsii','    M. L. A., claimed  that the .people'of the province .,wei;e  the ones to'be thought about.    It was  {', merely a'   question    of   finance   although he admitted that he favored  the letting, of longer contracts.      He  cited the Bla'ine-Bellingham highway  where he had    been  ,informed    the.  [farmers abutting^the >road were,fore-  led off the land by reason of the excessive    taxation    which he    understood to be" around $7 an acre.  The  Delta-people were ' satisfied  I'with then- roadbuilding, stated,    Mr.  j Paterson.,'   The stretch between    the  Great Northern tracks and the Lad-  ner ferry:had    cost   an   average   of  [$8000 a year for eight years on maintenance alone.    Now it ��������� was costing  [Delta $8;'22"0 a year for sinking fund  audi nterest on the paving,    the government paying a. like sum.  Speaking in support of such a  {body as that organized on Friday,  I Mr. Paterson stated that there  (were certain problems which could  the far settled by the  themselves than by Vancouver.

Barrow and Engineer Stowe in  'regard to the repair and improvement of streets' and roads in Ihe district. ' The-vlsltors showed every interest and consideration of ihe work  as far as funds would - allow, and it  is likely that the street between the  Masonic hall and ' D. McCrimmon's  residence will be" opened up in the  very, near' future.  ,.

That ,.being so,' high  hopes were entertained*-'for co-operation and strong support in this matter.     _ ' ���������  Essentially a get-to-gether affair,  the banquet was/carried through on  a plane of jollity and '.good fellowship..

In extending a welcome to the guests,  he spoke optimistically of the possibilities of such an organization as  that formed, functioning effectively, in attacking difficulties that  might well prove insurmountable to  my single, Board of Trade. He hail-  id it as a Teal factor in the welfare of  the entire community.  In passing, Mr. Riddell made a  graceful reference to the presence at  ;he festive board of one who .'might  be regarded as the senior member of  die Board of. Trade, Mr. C. G.  Major.  Mr. Major felicitously acknowledged the complimentary references to  his activities in that direction in  aarly days.  Mir. N. Hill, of Abbotsford,. newly  elected president of the Associated  Boards of the Fraser - Valley, also  :poke enthusiastically of the possibil-  ties of this organization-, the genesis  ^nd history of which he outlined. He  ���������mphasized the*, importance of the  Eraser Valley as' one of the greatest  ���������gricultural districts of the whole-  ���������rovince, and the necessity of dealing  .vith 'its needs and problems effect-  vely for the good of the province at  large, as well as its own prosperity.  He said he regards the board of  trade as representing the best element in the business life of any community, and he hopes to see it more  and more a factor in the direction of  public affairs.  On Dyking Problems.  Mr. A.Cruickshanks, of Clayburn,  chairman'of the Matsqui dyking commissioners', who has been a participant in and student of dyking im-'j  provements"for quarter of a century,  touched'on: the relation of dyking to  the question of river improvements  His theme was the vital necessity of  a clear channel to the safety of the  dykes. Unless the channel is adequate, he asserted, a high water like  that of'94 will endanger all the  dykes. Certainly it will endanger  tht Matsqui dyke, and he informed  that that at Hatziajs even more susceptible.

Editor ami Proprietor  Kit! DAY,' MAY   ii,    1.922  NEWSPAPER POLICY  Times "Boost"  How Much Does the  For London?  "Why should a newspaper give  free publicity in its columns?" is the  question which a Philadelphia paper  propounds. The Corn Exchange of  that city then tells of the dozens of  requests which every newspaper receives daily to print free something  which will help somebody else, but  not the paper.  It says:���������  Were Philadelphia to pay at commercial rales for all the free advci-  tising which/the newspapers now contribute gratis the annual outlay for  that item would exceed the whole-  cost of the police department.  - There is never a single copy of  any of those papers printed on any  day of the year which does not contain from one to twenty items either  so-called news or editorial,- that is a.  gratuity handed out for the common  welfare and from which the paper  directly or indirectly received not a  penny  of profit.  The people of this city never expect a shipyard to do anything but  build ships. A locomotive plant has  done its duty "when it. constructs  railway engines. A hat factory,  flour mill, clothing , factory, bank,  . store, trolley road arid telephone is  not reckoned upon to give, its time,  service oi-, capital for boosting any  enterprise..evcepting its own.  Dozen   of    Requests  But a newspaper has dozens of  requests every day to ��������� print or to  urge, to commend or damn, to beg or  promote something out of which the  owner of-the.,paper can" derive no  financial benefit. ,. He is expected to  employ his capital in that way for the  common  welfare.  A newspaper has but two- possible  sources of-'income. ��������� One is from the  sale of the paper and the other from  the sale of advertising space.-  Whatever in the paper does not  attract readers to buy is not a profitable thing for the owner financially.  Whatever in a paper takes' up  space where--an advertisement'might  be printed is-a direct and -immediate'  loss. Very little of what is called  "civic boosting" ever brings to a  newspaper a single reader. Certainly no' begging, proposition does.  Armenians always' require 'relief  go it seems,- and the papers are expected to; print columns of appeals.  But no person would ever think ot  buying-a-newspaper just to read an  article asking him to contribute  . money to some one 6,000 miles  away.  An account of a prize- fight, baseball game,, murder, election, elopement in high social circles, a horse  race, a battle or a hot debate in Congress; would sell papers. * Readers  would buy'to see-that sort of thing.  Yet the Philadelphia papers give  daily many columns of space on  white paper that costs them deadly to  the boosting or begging or promoting  propositions. And let Philadelphi-  ans remember that such is not the  case everywhere.  The London Times  The journal which" for a century  and a quarter has been regarded in  all parts 'of the world as the greatest  newspaper published is The London  Times. But so far as booming any-  ��������� thing in'London goes, the Time---  might as-well be printed in Tokio. It  devotes but little of its resources ancl  capital to" that sort of thing.  It may be contended that it is a  newspapers legitimate business tc.  urge and-ibeg arid boost. But it is not  more the function of a newspaper  than of a magazine and magazines  thrive by- publishing only such articles as their editors believe the public wishefs to read.  The magazine tries arid does secure  circulation by interesting its readers  and so gets advertisements. It publishes no' Belgian,- no Polish, nor  American appeals, never urges' better  street pa'ving and cleaning; does not  coax people to contribute for the  support ;bf hospitals and colleges;  makes no demonstration for saving  babies, which daily newspapers ar*-  constantly asked to'rielp.  Every newspaper gives' more of it.-  service free than almost any other  institution that iff not an endowed  charity, while at the same time it  voluntarily for what it deems to be  the public good, refuses to accept  profitable advertising. Who can estimate, therefore, the sum total of  such a policy day In and day out; adhered toi;by our newspapers?  proves on every count    this    contention.    There was the prevailing ten- jj  dency   to   abstain   from'   buying atj  Salmon Arm, the    same as   is    com-'  plained of elsewhere  ;  Money    was  not in evidence    on   any   hand,,, for  weeks before the big sale was advertised.  from 9 a. m. until dark, the Jackson  store; as well as others, who, taking  , But on Thursday;' the opening day,  'advantage of the big sale advertising,  put on sales of their own and offered  big values in order to get some of the  money the big. sale advertising uncovered, r Up to 4 p. m. the  sales at Jackson & Co.'s store had  reached tho $2,GOO mark, and were  still going strong. Mr. Jackson'himself said it was demonstrated clear-:  ly to him the magnetic power of  newspaper advertising, and fully satisfied him on that score.���������Enderby  Commoner.  Hon. .Manning Doh'erty, who frc-  nucntly has expressed publicly ln's  desire that the great apple industry  of Ontario should be handled on a  cooperative basis, was strongly in  favor of, the scheme and stated that  his department, would aid its accomplishment and its progress in every  way-.possible. He anh'ouncpd that he  intended to introducer legislation at  the coining session with a view to  offering financial assistance in some  form for the- erection and establishment' of central packing bouses for  the-cooperative handling of fruit. ���������  Canadian Horticulturist.  JUST WHY? FATHER  I used to wonder just why Father'  never had much time to play. Used  to wonder why he'd rather work each  minute of the day. Used to wonder  why he never loafed along the road  and shirked; can't recall a time  whenever Father played while others  worked. Father didn't dress in fashion, sort of hated'clothing new. Style  with him was not a passion���������he had'  other things in view. Boys are blind  to much that's going, on about 'em  every day, and I had no way of knowing what became of Father's pay.  All I knew was when 1 needed shoes  I got 'em on the spot; most * the  things for which I pleaded somehow  Father always got. Wondered' season after season why. he never' took a  rest, and that 1 might be the reason  then I never even guessed. Saw his  cheeks were getting paler, didn't understand just why, saw his body  growing frailer, then at last I saw  him���������die. Rest had come! his task's  were ended; caliri was written on hit-  brow; Father's life was" big and'  splendid���������and I understand it:now.  ���������Detroit Free Press.  The world's visible' supply ' of  wheat is just now considerably lower  than it has been for , two'years past.  It amounts to 243,700,000 bushels,  as compared with 321,912,000 bushels at- this time last year, says the  Ottawa Journal. When a deduction  of 30,000,000-bushels is' made for  cash ' spring seeding, it is ' calculated that  there will be barely sufficient to meet  the demands for consumption until  tlie next-crop'is harvested.' It is estimated that both Canada and the  United States will be-completely sold  out before first July next.  While it is not desirable that ihe  cost of bread should advance as the  result of higher wheat values, the  facts just indicated warrant the hope  that the farmer will continue to receive present prices. It is' in everybody's interest that' his purchasing  power should not be lowered. That  could only happen if the selling  price, of-his produce should drop,  while the cost of the commodities he  has to buy remained stationary or advanced. That economic law applies  just as aptly to wages. So long as  a parity is preserved between selling  values and buying values, nobody  can .be hurt . by fluctuations. The  thing that counts is' the purchasing  power of-money, which" is the medium  of exchange-for all commodities as  well as labor.���������-Kamloops-Standard-  Sentinel.

"  :s  British Columbia Telephone Company  APPLES TO SOUTH AFRICA  According to The Argus, Cape  Town, consignments of Canadian  apples' reached South Africa in November in splendid,condition;-"a;treat,  alike to the eye and to tlie palate."  The South African supplies'froni cold  storage had ceased, and these arrived just'at the "right time to catch  an open-market. . King, Gano ancl  Ben Davis arrived from Canada, the  paper says, and Mcintosh from "British Columbia. The Mcintosh' were  said to be the "pick of the lot which,  talfen as a whole, has rarely, if ever,  been equalled." Cape Town, '.' by  far the largest apple consuming, city  in*'South -Africa," took-50 per cent  of the .consignments, Johannesburg  30, ancl Dulham 20 per cent.  The first barrels to be g oLx o:y ���������  realized f> pounds each. The following day they brought 4 pounds.lo  shillings and the next day .' they  "were, firm at 4 pounds 10 [shilling,--,  with no likelihood of any", lower  price." The boxes-began ���������'running at  26 shillings to 30 shillings each, i*md  were standing, the next day at' 25  shillings 3 pence to 28 shillings 3  pence again "with no probability of  any lower price." No mention is made  in either case of price's'by" varietie*s.  "Last season,"    The    Argus said.  'Canadian apples did not arrive until  Christmas,'just the-  time   when our  Southern African grown apples begin  ;o appear.    Of    course, in    competition with fresh fruit in    abundance,  excellent in quality    and    cheap, the  imported article stood no chance and  consignors lost pretty heaviiy., It Aj  hoped that the, present consignment  lasts out until'Dec. 20, when another  "shipment is expected from    Canada,  and much reach here to the*very day,  or there will be again a ��������� fatal clash  with our South    African    apple."���������  Canadian Horticulturist.  ���������  PROFICIENCY LIST FOR APRIL  Division I.

Members and delegates of the Ah--  botsford Board of Trade to the number of nearly thirty journeyed to  New Westminster last Friday to  attend the forming of the Associate*!  Boards of Trade of the Fraser Valley.  "The ultimate success of th-* Sumas Reclamation Scheme is practically assured," stated Col. R. D. Davie's, chairman of tlie Provincial Land  Settlement Hoard, in the course cf  an illustrated lecture on "Land  Settlement and Development Problems in British Columbia!" in the  city hall, New Westminster Wednesday evening. The meeting was well  attended arid an interesting ��������� and instructive evening was afforded to  all present. Mr. Nels Nelson, president off the R. A. & I. Society occupied the chair. -  Speaking on the feasibility of the  scheme, Col. Davies' stated that after  !considerable investigation, it had  been found that reclaimed land is  ���������worth more, and? costs less to put in  shape-for farming, than wild, uncleared virgiifrsoil. The average cost  of clearing wild land is approximately $300 per a/ore, while the cost of  reclamation averages' $50 per acre  Then again the Sumas district contained some the most fertile land in  British Columbia and would undoubtedly  give prolific  yields.  " Reviews History  A" complete history of the work, of  draining this area was given by the  speaker who'Stated that, prior to  19 IS several tentative schemes for  the reclamation of this land had  been proposed by various engineers  but nothing definite accomplished.  In that year, however, a conference  .was called and the difforent plans  wore discussed. Eventually the present scheme, known as the Sumas Reclamation Scheme, was adopted. The  estimated cost of- all work, including  the installatiori'of pumps, is $1,800,-  000. Tho area drained by this  scheme comprises some 33.000 acres  of what is said to-be tiie best land in  British-Columbia. The contract of  the Marsh Construction Co. amounts  to $1,182,000, of which slightly over  * $784,000 . has been spent. Tlus  amount has been well within the estimate.  Describing the work In detail, Mr.  Davies stated the complete,  area to  be.drained was four    miles wide and  sixteen miles long,    between    Chilliwack and Huntingdon.    The plan is  to drain Sumas.lake by' cutting   off  the Vedder river   from  its    original  course; and'diverting^ it" into a huge  canal.    This' canal    is* a    three    and  one-half miles long and    three hundred wide with an    additional    100  feet on-either side    called    a break,  making-a'"total width    of 500    feet.  The theoretical length is 15 feet.   In  order to ensure every possible means  -of. protection; large dykes have been  constructed on'each    side    of    this  canal.       The width   of  these  dykes  is 180 feet at the.base with an average "height of 27 feet.    This is    two  feet-above" the'. 18 94'high water line.  The width at the line of   an ordinary  high water is 46 feet, while    at   the  1894 high   water    mark    there   is a  "width of 12" feet.    In    addition    to  these main'dykes various.other subsidiary ones liave also been constructed,* the" most* important of these being'the-Fraser river dyke. There   av'e  also a number of interception ditches  for 'drainage.' .  ��������� Ready for Freshet  By the time the freshet is expected  the work will have progressed sufficiently to ably cope with an' average  high water. In the event of extreme  high water little difficulty is anticipated/," the top' of the dyke being ol  -sufficient'width to enatfle/sand bags  to be piled on,  The actual work on the job , was  also-described fully by the speaker,  the methods., of constructing the  huge dyke being of particular interest.- Bulkheads to hold the material in place" was first erected. Following the completion of these, the mud  was' pumped in suspension, or in  liquid form, from the bottom of the  cut, by. large suction dredges. The  water soon ran off and "the clay rapidly became hard. The bulkheads  were then torn down and a drag;  line excavator built the dyke to its  proper height. The actual diverision  of .the Vedder river to its new channel, which took place last week, was  also described by Col. Davies.  Disposition of Land  Asked as to how the board proposed, disposing of the land, upon the  completion of the scheme, Col.  Davies replied that.'as yet no valuation had been placed on the reclaimed lands,'but that a conference with  the land-owners and a representative  from the Dominion government  would be held late in the summer,  when a valuation would be put on it  and a scheme for disposing of it  would be discussed. The money derived from the sale of the government lands would be used to help  meet the cost of the work.  The possibilities of Central B. C.  as an agricultural district and the  soldier settlements at Merville and  Creston were .also treated by the  speaker.  At the close of the lecture, a  hearty vote" of thanks, proposed by  Mr. L. V. Griffin, and seconded by  Dr..'A. J. Holmes, was- tendered to  Col. Davies. hi seconding the vote.  Dr. Holmes stated that it was particularly-gratifying to the citizens of  New Westminster to know that there  was! no possible doubt as to 'the  success of the scheme.  Friends of Mr. Weatherbee, Jr.  will be pleased to learn that he is  progressing favorably since undergoing an operation tn the local hospital.

Continued from Page One"*  which the flood water of the Fraser  ! could and did spread themselves. The  river is dyked practically continuously. Sumas', the last great safety  valve, is closed. The result is that  the volume of water released by  warm weather is now confined to a  comparatively narrow channel and  unless its course is made as free as  possible and the outlet is adequate,  it will constitute a grave danger. This  danger, he pointed out, affects not  only the farmers of the Valley, but  the whole of the Lower Mainland,  for if the dykes break- the "great-  transcontinental railway lines will bo  put out of commission, possibly, for  weeks, resulting in a c'tie-up disastrous to the entire industrial and  commercial  fabric.  >,On Building Roads.  Mr. Harry Stewardson, city engineer, contributed an interesting paper  on g-jod roads. He traced the development of road systems from the  first path beaten by the foot of prinv-  itive man, through such notable-  stages' as the road construction of  the Romans, which reached its .peak  in the famous Appian Way. to the  hard surface roads of today. At all  stages of >road construction methods  had changed to meet the needs of  changing methods of transportation.  Road methods of today are dictated  by" the comparatively recent great development- of the motor vehicle,  vehicle. Speaking-of divergent types  of construction, . Mr.. Stewardson  pointed out the impossibility of prescribing any one indiscriminately as'  the.best, when there are so many factors entering into the problem dependent on local conditions. He  stressed the importance of building  roads in such a.manner that the first)  cost is' not prohibitive and that permanence may be secured by judicious  maintenance. ���������  Co-operation"by .ConnnunWiesj  Mr. W. L. Macuen, President of  the Associated Boards of Trade of  British Columbia, gave a thoughtful  address on co-operation, in particular relation to the board of trade  movement. Co-operation between  individuals for the benefit of all  transmutes the natural selfish ambition of each to prosper into an unselfish activity by which all prosper.  There are many forms of organization through which this may be accomplished, but to his mind the board  of trade is the one organization in  which there is neither party, class or  creed and which, unfettered by* any  untoward influence, js the one great  power in developing the economic  life of the community.  Proceeding into somewhat more  speculative regions, Mr. Maclc-m vis-  ioned a time when boards ��������� of trade  will start a ripple which will grow  into a wave to sweep the old party  polities' system into the discard. ' He  likened the system of opposing political parties in this province to  running a business with a group of  black haired men criticised by a  group of red haired men, with a few  bald headed men criticising both.  Although he had been identified, with  the Conservative party, he said, he  would not care if it sank into oblivion accompanied by the'orgauized Liberal party, if by that means the  country could achieve a business administration of its affairs.  Toast to Visitors.  A toast to tlie health of the visitors was proposed by Mayor J. J.  Johnston and Mr David Whiteside.  M. L. A. The former, in;'the course  of his remarks, referred with satisfaction ito the growing realization  that improvement of the Fraser  River is' not New-Westminster's fight  alone, but calls for the co-operation  of all the Valley organizations and  also that of ^Vancouver.,  Mr. Whiteside entered a plea for  Nicomen Island, as one of the matters with which the new organization  should strongly concern itself. Unless something is done, he said plainly, the island will be washed away  one of these days. However, he  feels that co-operation between the  provincial and Dominion governments on this question is now nearer  than it has ever been before  Reply was' made by Mr. Hill, Mr.  A. D. Paterson, M. L. A., and Mr. J.  A. Catherwood, M. L. A., on behalf.  of tiie 'yisitiH-s in general. ���������   '  Mi\' Pateri-ion looked for good re-  stilts, from the formation of such organizations, in clarifying and formula tins the es������'ential needs of commun-  ilios." At present," he thought, -the  eminent service for which they, arc  ernment. service for*'which they are  hardly ali'.o to pay.  Mission in .Line.  Mr. Catherwood confessed that  when the movement for the formation of Valley boards, was first moved the people of M'ission were not  very favorably impressed. , They  were inclined to doubt whether vhero  was room for, such an organization  as' well as the Associated . Board of  British Columbia. ' However, they  feel that there is scope .for the new  organization and a great field of usefulness.  He too spoke at   sonie , length   on  the theme    of    river    improvements  and   their  importance to  the  Valley  at large, and of Nicomen Island.  An Address on the Eraser  Scheduled to speak on "The Good  Old Fraser River," Mr. J-. G. Robson  delivered a brief but intensely interesting and inspiring., address on    its  possibilities   for   .industrial  development."    He-  drew    attention    to tlie  vast natural    resources of the    province in ��������� mineral    ores, particularly  iron and copper, the very foundation  of industrial development,    and the  tremend )u.i water.powers lying latent  perhaps only five per    cent,    having  been  utilized.    These resources  presage    wonderful' development,    and  the Fraser River is' the    natural location of the industrial plants    that  will be established to exploit them. It,  has practically 12 5 miles    of waterfront,    flanked    by    unlimited    land  suitable for sites,, and the only thing  necessary to start on   'this    development is a decent    river ^ channel    in  order that the products'of industrial  plants may be shipped.to    the    markets of the world.  Grain Trade " Coming  Mr. Robson touched also on  westward shipment of grain,  predicted the establishment of many  elevators on the Pacific within the  next ten. years. The Fraser River is  the- logical location for these too.  The guests last evening included  Mr. R. Kerr Houlgate,- president of  the Vancouver Board of-Trade, and  Mr. J. B. Thompson; . Vice-president  of that body, both of whom were  called upon for a few words* and responded gracefully. Mr. .Houlgate  assured the-audience that the Vancouver organization stands ready at  all times to lend its��������� aid,- in ariy movement for.the benefit of the Fraser  Valley, and on the strjength of. the  fact that Point Grey, a portion, of  Greater Vancouver, borders .the Fraser River, made a plea for Vancouver  to be regarded as not at, least an entire outsider in the affairs of the  Valley.  Mr. Geo.' L. Cassidy . .proposed a  toast to the ladies and Mr. Hill -.if  Abbotsford paid his compliments to  the press.  Among the guests at the head  table, in addition to those who spoke  were observed Mr. C. B. Reeves, of  Chilliwack, Mr. Geo. T; Thornton,, of  Sai'dis, Mr. W. H. Wilson and Mr.  L.
