II. A. MaeLean, K.C., appeared on behalf of tho defendant  and countered the application with'  an application for an order granting  ihe defense the right to cross-examine tho premier on the hitter's adi-  davit in support, of* the plaintiff's ap  plication to have numerous paragraphs of the statement of defense  struck out. An argument between  counsel for the premier withdrew  certain allegations to the effect that  certain portions of Mr. Elliott's statement of defense were untrue. Arguments of counsel for the contending  parties with regard to questions of  pleading will be continued before'Mr.  Justice MacDonald sitting in chambers next Thursday.  Today's application on behalf ' of  the premier was for an order to  strike out the statement of defense  generally on the ground that the  matter -therein was unnecessary,  scandalous, contrary to the rules of  pleading and tended to prejudice embarrass or delay, a fair trial'of the  action. ��������� The application went on to  allege that the statement of defense  disclosed no' reasonable answer . to  plaintiff's statement of claim and was  frivolous and vexatious; and that  more particularly and in an.y event  certain specified portions of the statement of defense should be stricken  out.

NEW   WESTMINSTER   MUSICAL  FESTIVAL  arrangements in connection with the  New Westminster Musical Festival,  which was established last year, has  and'extend the good feeling existing  throughout our kingdom so that  happiness may become the motto of  Farms at Merville are gradually being taken up and those who actually  want locations are not experiencing  much hitch i securing them. This  process hs been going ahead steadily  for the past few weeks. The procedure-, is that when a man wants a  piece of land he is'asked to choose.  If two men fancy* the same piece of  land the one with seniority���������i.e. thc  man who arrived and registered at  Merville first��������� gets first choice  There will, of course, be* many single  men arid some married couples who  were attracted to the settlement by  a stcadv wage and once the pay roll  system 'is abolished there will be no  room for them. But thase who do  want land and arc taking it up are  getting it.  Meanwhile as a social centre Mci  just completed its preparation of the j ou  reign  syllabus for the 1920 festival.

There might be money in it for  in business it is very improtant to have both times fresh in thc  memory. <���������- :   '  The change of time for the cities is just probably what is  wanted, with, probably the exception of the school children, as it  gives more Lime in-the evening for enjoyment after the day's  work and may go far to solve labor troubles and unrest.  Por country places the summer time is not what is wanted  In fact it might'be well for Lhe time to be changed so as to piu  it an hour back during the harvest and berry picking time, it  would insure during these Limes of high wages, much better re-  i-.miL although possibly the movement would not ne popular with  tne lured help, but the man who tills the soil would sure get better value for nis money, as it would give a day, wholly free from  the morning dews,  which are detrimental to success and an  early start.   ��������� ;    ,  v^^aSa-Sla.  ���������The government has been wise in not making the summer  time compulsory for the country.  Talking about farm help reminds us of the story going the  rounds in this district and although we cannot vouch for the* exact truth of it, the story is said to be absolutely true. This farmer decided that he.required the-help of a married couple on his  larm���������the man to work in the fields and the woman to do the  household work. A young married couple, without encumbrances, was secured from Vancouver. They arrived and the farmer  and his new help were talking over the duties to ue performed  by each. The upshot of the talk was.that the man would drive  a span of horses, if somebody would hitch them up for him, aha  caru for them in the evening. The woman wouid do the cooKing  but wished the hours limited. She- did not care to go to wont any  earlier than eight o'clock in tlie morning, and to cease an-household work at live in the afternoon, and wished to have Saturday  afternoon and all day Sunday to-herself.    No wonder the farmei  but \ '.sin,,   ed, 'Oh, h this is no piace lor you peopie, and PL  take you down to the station this evening.'  toiiort hours and defined work on the farm may sound quite-  up-to-date but is absolutely unpractical.  it is said that in tlie cities, even in our own large city in 13.  C. that,there is much privation among working people, and yei  the ciy goes up for shorter hours and higher pay. If this were- a  good old world where everybody did an honest day's work the  privations of the poor would cease, especially in this new country  wnere.there is.abundance of work for everyone, and with cveiy  prospect of still more work for more people. Every man who  uoes not do a full day's work.makes it that much harder for his  fellowman and even himself. Each man has a duty to perform  in this workaday world and when not carried out conscientiously  that man is not doing his duty to himself or his neighbor.  Farmers of British Columbia have many interests in common, and some of these may be political. Put they have more  Locial and political interests in common with people of other  vocations in their" own community than with the grain growers  of the prairies. Men on the land in British Columbia are not  iike.>y to combine in favor of high price for wheat and low prices,  for fruit.  'This is a province of many and varied interests. It is not  a good held for class politics.There is not a constituency which  can be described as purely agricultural or entirely concerned  with mines or lumber or fish or manufacture or trade, in most  of the federal ridings two or three of these activities have nearly  equal importance. The same families are interested in several  vocations. It is not possible even for an expert organizer and  class advocate to set against each other these mutually dependent classes.  Moreover the men on the land are not like the people in most  prairie communities, all engaged in one branch-of farming. We  have orchard fruitgrowers, producers of small fruits, gardeners,  ranchers and dairy farmers. Thus in a representative gathering  of peopie who work on the land there are various interests and  wide sympathies. The farmers are" accustomed to many kinds  of work. They have different markets, different sources of supply, different relations with people of other callings, different attitudes to tariff and other economic problems.  These are not people to accept platforms prepared by groups  in other provinces, where the range of interest, sympathy, know-  Jed ge and experience is narrower, where there is more sectionalism and prejudice and less hospitality to different ideas.���������Province.

THOMAS J. COX,   -  Wm.   McGILLIVltAY,  Executors of above Estate.  . ������riM n.flJlK������A  Hub S  e$  5'7  m  Mission City  At the. annual meeting of the  shareholders of the Canadian Pacific  Railway, held in Montreal, Mr. E. W.  Boatty, President of the Company,  stated that, the annual.report reflected vividly the situation prevailing in  respect of tin Increased cost of operation. The gross earnings were the  largest in the Company's history, exceeding those of 19.18 by $19,391 3G2,  yet the net earnings were loss by $1,-  569,351. The large increase in v^grIcing expenses showing a total Increase  since 1917 of ?38,152',70G is a striking example of the effect of the increased cost of wages and material  Ln spite of tho Company's conservative  and  economical  administration.  While it iis gratifying that even  with the&e exceptional costs the Company had during the past two years  earned fixed, charges and usual dividends, nevertheless' the relation between earnings and expenses must  now receive most careful consideration. The upward trend in costs of  the hast two years has not been  equalized by increases in the gross  earnings and operating economics.  The extent of the rate increases fixed  by the Dominion Railway -Commission has not equalled the increased  costs recently forced on all Companies. Between 1914 and 1919 the  working expenses of the Company  had climbed from $87,388,000 to  $141,000,000, an increase of 64'p.c.  Within the same period the increases  i,i freight and pass-enger rites  amounted in actual fact to 30 p.c. in  freight rates, and 10 p.c. in passenger rates. Thus during the past five  years     the   percentage     increase  in  $15,186,348 and operation costs of  $1,761,208. Success of the irrigation  block will, it is hoped, lead to the expansion of Irrigation projects under,  Federal or Provincial Governments,  thereby diminishing the danger, of  crop failure in irrigated districts.  ' The value of any enterprise de-.  ponds on the ability to progress and.  on the maintenance of high credit  necessary to the development. Railways must he enabled to keep pace  with the progress of the country, by  expanding the facilities, construe!Ing  necessary new lines and "supplying  tho public with adequate efficiency  and comfort in service. Tlie railway net earnings of the Company for  1919 represent a return of only four  per cent, on the actual cash invested in the railway itself. A nominal  surplus of $844,249 has been placed  in reserve to meet the special taxation imposed by the Dominion Gov-  ornment. The fixed charges and  interest ou the preference stock of  the Company are low and the dividend  of seven .per cent payable on the common stock from the railway earnings is moderate. Any corporation  conducting so'extensive an' enterprise must have rea.sona.ble surpluses. . Yet the surplus after the  deduction of the, fixed charges and  the dividends, amounted to less than  half of one per cent, of the groeB  earnings. Revenues, therefore, during the past two years were obviously Inadequate. Rates should be established which represent a fair return for the service rendered. Prcfils  earned by a Company's efficiency and  years me pun-em-agc .������v.������>^ ��������������������������� economy and by the character and  operating expenses was double the ��������� extent of the equipment and facili-  porcentage in tolls accorded to  the   t-Cfii should not be confiscated, nor.  yj ia������^Wwi������r������>>rTrtwa^8u^>)g3gq#  =35  Railway Companies.  Owing to the parity of conditions  existing'between the United Slateis  and Canada, the Canadian roads during the war had to accept the high  wage scales made effective under  Government control of American  roads and also to continue operating  under similar tariff tolls. These  tariffs were entirely inadequate as*  n-flu!t3 In the United States clearly  demonstrated. Recent legislation  h."j3 assured American carriers of  rates which will return fixed percentage on the value of the undertakings used in the public service.  This will mean a reconsideration of.  and increase in the rates now current  in the United States. No doubt the  necessity of rate adjustments will be  give**) .eaj.ncst consideration- by the  Government and the Dominion Rail-  wav Board. Such readjustment is  amnly warranted both on the ground  of tlie value of service rendered by  the carriers and the cost to them of  performing  such   Gervi.ce.  Tiie rates in Canada should be determined having regard "to the coe*  aid value of services, and the legitimate needs of the railway companies.  The properties of the Canadian Faci-  flc are in excellent.condition and at  no time in its history has it been  better equipped to perform its important public services or to play- its  full part in the advancement of the  transportation future of Canada.  The irrigation project in Alberta  has developed 643,526 acres by  means of .3,969 miles of irrigation  pitches/ at   a construction cost_ ol  should the revenues accruing to one  Company from service well performed be taken to supplement the revenue of a competitor less successful.  The theoVy that the rates be not  increased, but that the deficits be  met from general revenues of the  Company is economically unsound  and discriminating against the public  in favor of those using railway facilities.

CO-OPERATION  (Tune: "Yankee Doodle")  Father and I went down to town  To attend a big convention,  And there we met the farm-er boys  Who had but one intention.  Chorus:  Co-op-er-a-tion  that's the stuff  To save this grand old nation;  So Dad and I have both declared  We're  for  co-op-er-a-tion.  Co-cp-er-a-tion   was  their  cry,  Th?.y kep it up, hy goll-y,  Till all the men and all the boys,  They grew to be quite jolly.  Now Dad has heen a farm-er since  The  time  he  first  began  sir;  And Mother's been a farm-s-r's wife,  And so has Sister Ann, sir.  They always said it was hard lines,  The hard-est in cre-a-tion.  But. now  they think  it is the life���������  They've   tried   co-op-er-a-tion.  1  fi  ���������wj  U. C.  'AHBOTSFORIMJ. C.
