The  stores were all closed and some'  of our people went for trips to  various .outside points. The day  was ideal for an outing.  The 'shingle mill began making shingles on Monday of this  week.  It is reported that Mr. Dan  Smith and family will shortly  be back in Abbotsford again.  ,- 'Mr. ^kigough. addressed a  full house on Monday last in the  Masonic hall. His cartoons were  constant surprises while he applied many'lessons on Temperance. The-. Big Three was very  entertaining when the artist  changed the plum- pudding, a  potato and a Scotch thistle into  typical faces representing, England, Ireland and Scotland and  described in humorous goodnature the characteristics of the  three nations.  DESERTERS HANDLED BY  MISSION CITY POLICE  The Canadian  War Contingent  Association  The Canadian War- Contingent Association,'in conjunction,  with the Red Cross is performing a work of great national importance, in providing relief for  the wounded, and comforts' for  the Canadian forces at thc front  The Queens Canadian! Military I Hospital at Beachborough  Park, Shorncliffe is operated  and maintained by the Association, and now contains 125 beds'  Recently about 40 per cent, of  the patients we're Canadians,  the balance being from other  divisions of the. British forces at  the Front. The hospital is administered efficiently and economically through a hospital  committee, and has received  much financial assistance from  the Canada Lodge of Freemasons in London and the Masonic  Order in the Dominion.  Capt. W. McLeod Moore, of  Canadian. Army M.edical Service, is the Ofiicer-in-Charge of  the Hospital.- Miss M. C. Stewart, also a Canadian, fills the  position' of Matron. The Resident. Medical Officers, and all  the nurses are Canadians.  The other branch of the work  of the Association is the distribution to the troops of "Extra  Comforts" that is articles which  are useful to supplement Government supplies and are not  G overn men t issues.  When the Association first be-  /fc  >^n  Your Ad. in This Paper  BECAUSE THE RIGHT PEOPLE  LOOKING FOR YOUR AD.  If you COULD (although, OF COURSE, you  can't) stop every 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 IN TOWN WHO WANTS  TO BUY SHOES, OR CLOTHES, OR ANY  OTHER ARTICLE���������and it wouldn't "stop" anyone iv.lio 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 the buyer -  And if, among the prospective buyers of goods,  there is one to whom your goods would be a bargain, and your ad. is a convincing one, you'll sell  what you want to sell.  (THIS SPACE FOR SALE)  (From Fraser Valley  Record  Two deserters from the 121st  arrived in Mission City on  Thursday afternoon and put up  the Hotel de Jones. The represented they said the Lubin Moving Picture Company, Inc., of  "Los Angeles" Calif., and were  taking views of the Fraser. Valley, backed'by some Vancouver  Capitalists, and were to make  arrangements with the local  picture show people to give an  exhibition this week.  In their meanderings around  town they were spotted out by  a party who told the police that  the two men were deserters  from the 121st and were badly  wanted. They were .soon given comfortable quarters for the  night at the local provincial palace without charge. They gave  their names as Victor Vernon'  and L. DeClaire but the names  under which they registered at  121st headquarters were Kalla-  and Mills.  Friday the military police escorted them to New Westminster.  Report reached Mission City  Monday evening Victor Vernon, who by the way is some  sprinter, made a bolt, and while  in less than three minutes there  wore four hundred men after  him he made.his get away; and  disguised with a purple necktie  brown cap and umbrella he, was  seen in Vancouver on Sunday  afternoon. In the meantime  the woods near the 121st camp  wras surrounded .by soldiers on  the watch for him. -  Both are supposed to be Americans and are said to be wanted across the border.  ghan  B. B. Smith is painting up his  store.  gan its work, only about 33,000  Canadian soldiers had. crossed  .the Atlantic. Now there are over 120,000 and the numbers are  still growing. Among other  woollen comforts "(excluding  hospital supplies) the following  articles have been received,  largely from Canada, for distribution: Socks 127,370 pairs;  Body Belts, 17,694; Mufflers,  17,615; Day Shirts, 8,442; Wristlets, 40,081 pairs; Cardigans,  1,505; Gloves 1,951 pairs; Helmets, 12,190. These articles  have been, or are being, distributed as required amongst the  various Units. In addition, hundreds of bales and cases containing comforts addressed to  individuals or ear-marked for  special Units, and large numbers of small parcels for individuals in various Units have  been received and dispatched.  Considerable quantities of o-  ther comforts have been distributed, such as Tobacco' (smoking and chewing .cigarettes and  pipes, matches, - carbolic soap,  vermin powder, maple sugar,  chewing gum, bachelor buttons,  boot laces, khaki handkerchiefs  towels, currant cake, sweets, cocoa and milk powder, portable  cookers, toilet paper tooth  brushes candles for trenches,  game-cards, dominoes and  draughts, footballs, cricket sets,  baseball outfits, and boxing gloves. Some of the articles are  received from Canada, and the  balance of the supplies are purchased by the Association out of  its funds. Gramaphones have  been presented by the Association to many of the Battalions,  Brigades, and smaller Units at  the Front; and at Christmas a  portable Cnema was supplied  to each Brigade.  The Canadian Y. M. C. A. and  the Association are sharing the  cost of supplying to each Division weekly, .30,000 sheets of  notepaper, 15,000 envelopes and  8,000 current magazines.   Can  adian newspapers are received-  from Canada to the extent of 50  to 100 sacks every week, and  large supplies of old magazines  These are also divided among  the different Divisions. , The  writing and. reading material is  distributed daily to the different  Units. Considerable consignments of books have been presented by friends in the United,  Kingdom from time to time, and  are circulated as required.  A present was sent at Christmas on behalf of the women of  Canada to the men at the Front  and in the United Kingdom. Af- ,  ter consultation with General  Aldcrson, the gift took the  shape of a, stationery wallet  with< a.suitable inscription,and  about 90,000 were ordered and  distributed. They have been  spoken of in the highest terms  by officers and men as among  thc most useful of presents sent  to them.  In camps the C. W. O. A. does  not overlook the needs   of   the  Units in England.    They do not  however require so much attention in thc way of material comforts, as their   wants   can    be  more readily supplied from.Gov  ernment sources.    In close cooperation, with the Y. M. C. A.  authorities, both at-.'Shorncliffe .  and at   Bramshott,   Battalions  have been furnished with articles of athletic outfit as required '  and games and reading matter  for their recreation rooms. Concert parties are also sent each  week to the dicereht camps.  The association has received  from' many societies, commit- ���������  tees and individuals in Canada  and in the United Kingdom, money and, gifts of Hospitial supplies, beds and equipment, and  extra comforts of various .kinds.  The National Service Committee, and Patriotic Associations  connected with them in Canada,  such as the Women's Institutes,  the Women's Patriotic League  and the Daugthers of the Empire have rendered notable assistance.  Subscriptions received up  to the end of the year amounted  to $171,000, a sum which will be  inadequate in 1916 with 250,000  men on active service. If our  large Canadian armies are to be  kept in good condition during  the present year the Canadian  people will have to give generous support to the Red Cross  Society and the Canadian War  Contingent Association.  MISSION CITY HAS A FIRE  ON SATURDAY NIGHT  A house belonging to Mr. N.  C. Fraser, on the flat was burn-  to the ground on Saturday night  report has it about one o'clock.  No person had been living in  the house for some time; and  how it got a-fire is a mystery  The house was insured.  On Monday evening a prohibition meeting will be held  when organization will be effected for carrying to a successful issue the proposed law for  the abolition of the liquor traffic.  ���������" Rev. F. W. Kerr is announced to speak on the evening oT  June 1st on the Cross and the  Crescent. This address will  begin a series of addresses to be  given    in    the    Presbyterian  church an Evangelistic and patriotic subjects by Mr. Kerr. THE ABBOTSFORD POST\  ABBOTSFORD,  B.  C,

FRIDAY MAY 26,  191.0
Tiie inquiry into the "plugging" at the Vancouver election
last winter at which Mr. M. A.
Macdonald was elected with
such a large majority over his
opponent, will shortly close
and has undoubtedly cost the
province a lot of money (o pay
the expenses of witnesses,'etc.
That an election���just a bye-election���should need investigation of this kind to clear the
skirts of any party, is a disgrace
to the province, that will not
soon be forgotten. Of course the
���side that won will naturally
come 'in for thc cause of thc
"plugging" no matter the result
of the investigation and no mal-
, ter how much pleading of innocence there may bo made. To
the casual observer in politics
who does a little thinking for
himself it looks as though in
the interests of clean Liberalism in British Columbia, M.ac-
donald must go, and with him a
large amount of that abusive language used to discredit
our public men and even our
public servants. The "Plugging" followed by the investigation have been too much for a
great many people who can see
over the party wall of Liberalism.
We must < have public men
and also public servants so long
as we carry on our government
along the present lines, and H'
B. C. continues along the path
of the last couple of years it is
doubtful if the man of good com
mon sense judgment will undertake to enter politics. .
We all want to see a good big-
Liberal party in British Columbia to watch the Conservatives
and to have a strong party, good
men must enter the arena. The
Liberals are realizing this awl
if reports be true there will be a
regular house cleaning ��� amuiu;
tho present prospective candidates before election day next. Jl
is oven hinted that .John Oliivor
must go. . ���

This question of New Westminster and Vancouver hospital
patients' bills is a very vexed
one in the various municipalities and irrespective of who fa-J
thered it or the government that
permitted it to pass its third
reading is a downright imposition on" tho Fraser .River municipalities, and the Lieut-Governor should never attach his signature to it lo make it, law.
Municipalities like in .dividual like an itemized st.al.omonI
and not to be billed with any
other municipalities' bill, when
paying. The municipal geography,of the New Westminster
and Vancouver hospital stall" is
woefully lacking in accuracy.
When Mission municipality is
billed with a patient i'romRus-
kin and Wh on nock; or Maple
Ridge is billed, with, patients
from Stave Falls and Pitt Meadows, not itemized, and Matsqui is billed for patients from
other municipalities with doctor's" fees in addition tagged on
it is to say the least annoying.
If a hospital takes a patient
why should it call in an outside
doctor in addition to the hospital staff to attend the patient?
Not very long ago a transient
was taken from Maple Ridge
to a city hospital. He died and
the municipality had to foot the
bill. He was not a resident of
the municipality for more than
a day, if our memory serves us
aright, now what right hail tiie

" nPO win the war with thc decisiveness which will ensure lasting psace, the Empire
���*��� will require to put forth its full collective power in men and in money. From
this viewpoint it is our true policy to augment our financial, strength by multiplying our
productive exertions and by exercising rigid economy, which reduces to the minimum
all expenditures upon luxuries and non-essentials. Only in this way shall we be able
to make good the loss caused by the withdrawal of so many of our workers from industrial activities, repair the wastage of thev/ar, and find the funds for its continuance. It
cannot be too frequently or-too earnestly impressed upon our people that thc heaviest
burdens of the conflict still lie before us, and that industry and thrift are, for those
who remain at home, supreme patriotic duties upon whose faithful fulfilment
our success, and consequently our national safety, may ultimately depend."���

The war is now turning on a contest of all forces
and resources���men, munitions, food, money. The
call to all is to produce more, and more. It may be
necessary to work harder. The place of those who
enlist must be taken by those at home, men and
women, old and young. The more we produce the
more we can save. Produce more on the farms and
in the gardens.    Save more and help to win the war.
In this war-time all labour should be directly productive or should be assisting in production. Makeit
as.efficient as'possible. If your labour is on something
that can be postponed, put it off till after the war and
make your labour tell now. Making war is the first
business of all Canadians. Efficiency in labour is as
important as efficiency in fighting.
Begin at home. Thc larger portion of salaries
and wages is spent on the home���food, l'm-I, ilv;hr,
clothing. Are any of _ these tilings being v.a-.itod /

MUST PAY DEBTS  TO THE  HOSPITAL  Municipalities Are    Liable    in  Future for Treatment of  Indigent  Victoria, May 24.���������Mr. Mackenzie, Delta, objected yesterday to. the- feature of the Hospital Act amendment which apparently, he said, made municipalities collecting agencies in  connection with the hospital  bills of patients. Dr. Young  pointed out that the liability  was on the municipality at the  present time-, (he amendment,  merely made it clear that, thej  hospifasl could collect from1  nu'iirieipaJilies as an ordinary  'debt. in the case ol" indigents  municipalities were liable anyway; if patients were not indigent then the municipalitiies  from which those men came  should collect from them.  It was not right, he-thought,  that che Vancouver and Victoria  hospitals for examine . should  be saddled with the''expense, of  patients from districts all over  the province, Many patients  were able to pay but avoided if  if they could,- and hospitals frequently had to bear heavy financial burdens as a conse-  , (juence.  Mr, Mackenzie pointed out in  reply that the Union of Municipalities had declined lo countenance such a, proposal., Municipalities were willing to pay  for their indgent patients but  saw no reason why munisipal-  ities should be required to  collect from other patients who  neglected to pay. the Delia  member complained that this  matter was being dragged in at  .the last minute'although the  'municipal committee of the  House had refused it. ''  '"'The municipal union accepted this principle in the case of  theTranquille Canitarihm," replied Dr. Young. He twitted  the Delta member with the fact  that the Vancouver and New  Westminster Hospitals made  many complaints of the Freser  River Municipalities neglecting to pay for their patients.  "We pay our bills," answered  Mackenzie, "but our municipalities object to have bills render1  ed them every once in a while  with no detailed information a-  REB2ZB3IEEXS  V  ss Groceri  o      o  revisions,.

A/'Irv Shaw of Kamloops considered that the bill would have  Ihe effect of burdening municipalities1.. For example,, railway  gangs drifting into a town were  classiled by a hospital as belonging to that place, although  they were not properly residents. ' Tuberculosis patients- at  Tranquille, he said, often lived  f-1 FCarh loops for a month or so  before going into the institution, and then their expenses  were charged up against I\am-  oops Corporation. The government should meet such charges  he said.  My honourable friend was  very active in. .getting grants  for the Kamloops Hospital," retorted Dr. Young, 'but having  received help from the government, he does not now want to  see the city in- which the hospital is .situated pay ils share ol"  i.hc expenses oT sick .people  i'roni   I hat point.   ���������  Thc section which is one per  .���������hit! ing hospitals to collect  from municipalities as an ordinary debt, all bills incurred'by  patients from these districts  was adopted, with eight or ten  members opposing.
