New Reason Shown Why Provincial Government Should  Assist in Road Building  ���������*H^H,>-W'>,M,'*Hh*^.H*^~W,>'^  - An all-day session of the Fraser  Valley Development League onr Friday  resulted in a number of resolutions,  all lending in various ways towards  strengthening the -agricultural industry in the valley.   ������ J  Chief interest: centred in N. S.  Lqugheed's short paper on agriculture,  setting out four main obstacles which  presented the most formidable difficulties to settlers at the- outset, and  to overcome^ which;'it .was necessary'  to"invoke 'the aid of the 'provincial  government. The four obstacles referred to, ��������� were land clearing, bad  roads,- inadequate markets and transportation. To these later on "in the  day was added drainage,-applicable, to  low-lying lands. "    -  After a lengthy discussion it was  i emitted to Messrs. Hill-Tout, Hulbert  and Lougheed to bring in a report to  present to the provincial govornmenc.  Each member was earnestly urged to  send data,, particularly applicable to  his own district, to Mr. Hill-Tout for  the purpose of preparing and drawing  up of a report.  The other resolutions were:  Other Resolutions.  That the transportation and agricultural committees co-operate in. the  study of the tariff of charges, relating  to the transportation of agricultural  products throughout the Fraser valley,  and report to the next executive meeting.  That the transportation committee  )e instructed to interview the B. C.  E. R., and other shipping companies,  to rectify the difference in the rates  between milk and cream.  That the agricultural committee*  take action to see that the noxious  weed act was more rigorously enforced.  That the league approach the agricultural department of the government with the view of obtaining assistance from an expert, by instruction  or demonstration, in the bottling and  preserving of fruit and vegetables for  publicity and  exhibition purposes.  That the chairmen of all standing  committees be members of a board of  control, which shall have power to  deal With all matters requiring immediate attention and action; and  shall be an advisory board to the executive of the league. The board of  control shall lay out the secretary's  duties and advise him upon important  matters of detail.  That'- the publicity committee be  requested to formulate a scheme for  publishing a booklet embodying facts  and figures regarding the various districts of the Fraser valley, and bring  in a report to the next meeting of tho  executive respecting the cost and" proposed.means of financing this, without  expense to the league. A rider was  addtad, to the effect that the- committee also ascertain the. cost of the  booklet in sections, and' write to the  various municipalities assocated with  the league, as to ther willngness to  subscrbe for at least 1000 of the sections applicable to their respective  districts." . . 1.,  ' That tlie next general meeting of  the .league be held at Abbotsford: * ���������. ���������  That-a letter of thanks be sent to  Richmond municipality for their generous hospitality to the'league on May  ''3 5- '       -1     .      "  ���������That the league would view' with  favor an early movement in the construction of the new government  bridge across the'Pitt river. .  That the proposal to, construct ��������� a  paved road from the Pitt river to Vancouver be endorsed.  That the executive meet at least  one month before each general meeting.  Mr. Lougheed's Paper.  Mr. Lougheed, in his -paper, said:  Settlers in1-the brush or uncleared  land in "the lower Fraser valley are  not, ,in *a_ great' many, cases, making  the progress that should fall to their  efforts." This is in a' great measure  due to the following reasons: cost .of  land clearing, bad roads, want of suitable markets and lack of-co-operation.  "The cost of clearing the land is the  B. C, PIONEER PASSED.-M  Word  was  received  in. New Westminster Thursday morning that    Mr.  William'.T.  Cooksley, one of' the best  known   old-timers. in   New   Westminster, had passed away at the Harrison  Hot Springs Hotel, where he went'to  recuperate    his' health.'   Those    who  have   lived   in - New  Westminster  for  any"-length  of, time- will   know ' Mr.  Cooksley as a former city treasurer, .a  newspaperman, one vitally interested  in the civic and provincial politics.  rf Mr.   Cooksley  was  an  Englishman,  being ' born    in.   Brighton,  England,  about 57  years ago.    Later he came  to Canada  and^for some' time acted,  as construction foreman on the Canadian Pacific Railroad.    In 1888 he an-'  sumod the  position of city  treasurer  of  New    Westminster,  resigning    in  1895  and  going to  California for his  health.  -About a year later he returned  and  for,a  time  acted  in- the  capacity of accountant, for  the defunct  'Evening  Sun."    Later  he   "occupied  the same position on The British Co-  umbian staff and later was employed  by the "Westminster Daily NewB.' Finally  he    studied    photography    and  opened' a studio"*"at his" home'oh "'the'  corner   of   Eighth   and   St.   Andrews  streets.   He had followed this "occupation till his late illness.  Dring the time that'he occupied the  position of city treasurer, Mr. Cooksley  most important, and one that, is the I was very prominent as a layman -.of  first great trial to a settler. If he is | the Methodst church, occupying . the  only possessed of a few hundreds of  pulpit on many Occasions.    In politics  dollars or a thousand, nearly all his  money is spent in securing the property. He has then to build and dispose of the brush on the ground in  order to prepare the * surface for a  crop. He does not get on with this  ���������work very rapidly and his remaining  money is all gone before he does so.  It is here he needs help. ��������� He cannot  continue his clearing on account of  his deferred payments, and his property is not in shape to command the  attention of a loan company. Even  if his title is clear he dreads a mortgage, which, in many cases, carries a  high rate of interest. Under the circumstances he must either sell his  property or leave home .and obtain  employment in order that he may  again continue his clearing. If ��������� he  sells, his operations are continued by  some one else. If he goes away to  work it will be several years before  enough land -is cleared on which he  j can make a living.  With these difficulties in view, .a  moton has been presented to this  bureau, which has already the approval of several societies and municipalities, that the government of the  province assist the actual settler in  clearing the land, such assistance to  be a direct charge on the property and  repaid with a moderate rate of interest in a certain number of years.  In doing this the province is not  offering any other bonus than giving  the settler the advantage of the low  rate of interest which the government  can obtain for him.  It is also suggested that if suitable  machinery for clearing land were  placed at the disposal of the settlers  in different districts, the cost and  work of clearing could be reduced a  (Continued oin ia.st Pag?)  for many years he was a staunch  Conservative, but later " became a  Liberal. He always took an a'ctive  part in politics .in the city and district.  For some time his health has been  far from the best, and'last winter he  suffered confinement for a. lengthy  period on this account. For the past  few weeks, together with' Mrs. Cooksley, he had been staying at the Harrison Hot Springs.  YCUNG   MAN   DISAPPEARS  Up to the present'no trace has been  discovered of young Clarence Gazeley,  of Abbotsford, who aisappeared from  his home last Wednesday. He left  home in the morning, presumably on  a fishing trip,, although he did not inform his parents where he was going.  As the lad was not in .the. best of  health, considerable anxety is felt v  over his absence, and a large party  were out on Sunday last searching,  but with no success. The lad is  about 19 years of age, weighing about  L35 or 140 pounds, and has grey eyes,  dark hair, high cheek bones, long  sharp chin, and dark complexion. His  parents would be glad of any information concerning .him.  EMPIRE   DAY   CELEBRATED  QUIETLY.  Empire Day passed off very quietly  in Abbotsford, there being no celebrations of any kind' at home. As the  day was an ideal one for picnics, a  large number enjoyed themselves in  this manner. Quite a number visited  outside points and enjoyed the celebrations, while others went fishing.  ������mMiiM*M*^^ ���������������������������������'.  *:V  fHB ABBOTSFORD POST,      ABBOTSFORD, B.

Friday, May 30, 1913  'Sometimes we may not realize it but it is nevertheless true that  every penny oi'.new capital invested, in the town or valley means '  further progress for the Fraser Valley. - Sometimes we have difficulty in persuading ourselves,tliat'a new store, a new Parmer, a new  business of any kind, however small, is another link in the chain  that is pulling us up and onward, L:or we are not always able to  appreciate tlie part this new venture or that plays in the' general  scheme of things.  We may realize it afittle more when we jog our memories with  the reflection that wherever small capital goes big .capital is soon  to be found.    The small venturer breaks the ice for the" larger iu-  '��������� vestor, paving the.-way and developing the territory for those who  ' are able to command more funds. It works both ways, small investments following large as well as large investments following  small, and the entrance of one into a community indicates the other  , is soon to follow.  ' Large and small industries mean much Tor the valley.   It fills  the vacant store in the village and starts others in business..  The,  ' more prosperous the rancher the more the valley progresses. It  may not mean, and, we do not want it, a whirlwind of a boom, but  the .-constant, steady growth. that makes for stability is what is  ���������wanted. The prospects for the Fraser Valley towns and districts  are better this" year than they have.ever been before.  The small towns of the Fraser Valley have another point on  which to congratulate themselves, and that is upon the "availability  and price of our factory sites. AVe hear-the wail ol: the,coast cities  about the high price of factory sites, and thc consequent deterrent  effect this has upon the acquisition of new industries; the same conditions prevail on the American side of the line. . As cheap sites  play an important" factor in the development of a town, one cannot  blame the large cities for thc lament over a slow payroll increase.  Factory sites are cheap in the Fraser Valley today. Instead of  paying enormous prices, it is a well-known fact that in many places  free sites at the present time can be secured under proper conditions.  ��������� The taxes are low, living conditions are excellent, transportation  facilities are of the best, and every- advantage is apparently to be  secured for the location of industries. If these conditions are kept  so, the central Fraser Valley will have many industries located in  " our prosperous communities within the next five years.

In that procession were millionairesses keeping step with scrubwomen;  college professors with the pupils- of  night schools; Fifth avenue hostesses  . with ��������� waitresses from' cheap' lunchrooms; old women with withered  cheeks and gray hair with girls in the  firstj flush and bloom of youth anu  beauty: All lines of wealth and class  and social distinction were wiped out  by the great cause that touches every  woman high and low, and that has  .'brought: them* together'in one great  sisterhood.  >��������� What did you see when you watched  the suffrage parade?  ��������� You saw one of the spectacles that  make history. - ,You saw the passing  of the old order of things and the  entrance of the new.

You saw the exit from the stage of  life of the doll baby woman of the  past, of the woman who could find the  :whole of life* in adorning herself,  whose interests were no wider than  her own home, and who saw no shame  in getting what she wanted out of  some man by cajolery, or flattery, ��������� or  lying, or whatever other means was  necessary.  had to .give to the public. It was a  spectacle that made even the dullest  think.  What did you see as you watched  the suffrage parade? \  You saw victory marching on to its  crowning. Every woman's face wore  the uplifted look of a martyr, of one  who would struggle on undismayed by  defeat until she finally conquered.  No one who witnessed that parade will  ever jest ,and scoff * again at woman's  suffrage. He will know that it is.a  fact to be reckoned with, and that it  is just as sure to come as is tomorrow.  iS BOARD DF TRADE  MILK   PRODUCERS   TO   UNITE.  Dull, indeed, were the eyes that did  not see in those thousands and thousands of earnest-faced women the  type of the new womanhood that is  marching onward to a place beside  man, no more to be his top and plaything, but his equal and his partner  in doing the work of the- world and  reaping its rewards.  What did you see as you watched  the suffrage parade?  You saw the- ��������� spectre of injustice'  marching in every woman's shadow.

Dairymen  Organize  Last"Week  In her address before the National  Council of Women a few days ago  Mrs. Adam Shortt. spoke of the groat  need - there is in Canada of good  servants for families in moderate  circumstances.  Like most persons who have devoted any thought and observation to  this subject, Mrs. Shortt concludes  that rich people can obtain the help  they need. It is. the overworked  'mother who must suffer for want of  the help for" which she can offer only  a moderate salary.  The speaker blamed the emigration  agents who induce girls to come out  to Canada by telling-them that they,  'were sure to get husbands soon after  landing., At .the same time, Mrs.  Shortt complained that a great many  young women who came out a3 - domestic servants were quite inefficient.  The kind of young woman to whom  the idea of coming out to a new country in order to be married appeals, is  not likely to be efficient, in any capacity."

We can scarcely he- wrong in  believing' that the English women who  form" the ' best class of: immigrants  look upon' life 'from the same' viewpoint" We know-that- the girl who  does' her" work most" efficiently in the  home of another will be the best1 wife  and mother, and" the" same is'true of  other callings.  It would be foblish to ��������� deny ' that  most women hope - sometime to be  happily married.' From- the- beginning  of time husbands and wives- have  loved each other. But the old stories  of knights going out in quest of bcau-  tifurmaidens or of princes seeking for  princesses to share their thrones had  a "foundation in th^ nature of things.  It is as unnatural as it is unbecoming for girls to leave home in order to  find husbands.' We welcome to'Canada all women who: come to aid in  its'upbuilding." If our Bons and brothers seek to woo and win their love  we are quite content. But the woman  who neglects her duty ln order to pay  court to the other sex is not likely  to gain the friendship and esteem of  good women or the love of good men.  As for the'Canadian agents, who by  holding out the,promise of matrimony,  induce foolish young women to leave  their homes, it is hard to write patiently of them. They are enemies at  once of their"country and of the girls  who listen to their misleading representations. Few people in the jvorld  are more to be pitied than the wives  of Canadian pioneers who enter upon  their duties without preparation, fitness for their work or knowledge of  the country and its conditions.���������(Reprinted from "In Woman's Realm,"  Colonist, May 15.)

All  reported having a good time, though  some missed a car or two.  -Air. Boulter, of the C. P.

Allss Alontgomery    spent  the   24th  ���������with friends at Bowen Island.  Mrs.   Geo.   Clark  was  a  visitor   to  Victoria on Empire Day.  Air. F. Hutton drove in from his  ranch on Monday, with his fine team  all dolled up with new silvermounted  harness.  stumps and brush, which can bring  the settler no compensation for his  work   in  disposing of  it.  Mr. Lougheed amplified his statement by stating that there was more  land under cultivation and being  cleared 20 years ago than now. It  was'no use putting men on the-land  if they were not encouraged to stay  there. The' Fraser valley had a  special claim on tho government, as  they had contributed more money to  its revenues -than all the rest of the  province put together.  Air. Hill-Tout strongly confirmed  Mr. Lougheed's views." It was imperative to take some means to keep men  on the land after they got there.  Within the last' two years, within a  radius of' two. miles ot his own homo,  seven people had come to live on  land and had failed to make good, and  either exchanged or sold the land. At"  any rate they had gone away. It was  not as if these men we're not industrious or that they were.not adaptable  to the life. They had put energy into  their work. It was a most discouraging condition of things.  The government had received  revenue direct and indirect from  these timbered lands already, and  should be urged to help by some  scheme of money loans to settlers at  a low rate of interest.  Roads Discussed.  ��������� Roads, trunk and lateral, were also  fully discussed, and. a motion to lay  before the government a request to  construct trunk roads through the  whole Fraser valley was carried  unanimously.'  In this connection a memo, from the  public works department was read in  regard to the cost of paved roads. It  was pointed out that the estimated  cost was, on' a conservative basis,  $24,000 per mile, which was considered prohibitory. Standard macadamized roads were being built by the  government at present.  wwmmj jua'jufc.' ������wj  Hotel  atsqui  MISSION   CITY, B.C.  7 his hotel makes a  specialty of  home-like comforts for Commercial  Travellers.
