(Continued  on Last Page)  The ninth annual May Day festival  celebrated   in   Abbotsford   yesterday  was as great a    success as in former  years.  Tho programme of the day began  with-a fine line up of. races and  sports, under the direction . of Rev.  A. Priest, J. A. McGowan and C.  Roberts. Young folk of tlie entire  district took an active and interested part in these sports'.  At one o'clock the-Union Jack was  raised on the school grounds / by  Miss Canada, and led by the band,  the singing of the "Maple. Leaf" followed. ���������  Addresses wore' then given, " after  w'liicIr'tlve-'-paTade of Queenls '" cox-.  riages, and decorated autos' wended  its way through the main streets of  the town to the theatre. Boys of the  Beaver Trail Rangers Club, and girls  of the C. G. I. T. Club took part in  the parade as body guard to the  Queens.  The goddess of Liberty, Miss Mildred I-Iibner, from Sumas, Wash,  was an outstanding . feature of the  parade, .attending in a special carriage, and occuping a seat on the  stage with Miss .Canada.  The crowning of the May Queen,  Miss Evelyn Brown, by the retiring  Queen, Miss Freda Nelson, was he  chief attraction on the afternoon con  cert programme. In formally abdicating the throne, Queen Freda addressed the Queen elect and subjects as  follows:  Speech of Retinnj.',' Queen of May.  Greetings to .the citizens of the  Realm of-the May Queen. You arc  gathered here .today in accordance  with our regular custom, to witness  the coronation of your Queen of  May for the coming year.  I am pleased to see present today  so many from the surrounding committees, and bid then welcome in our  midst. My reign has been one of  peace and prosperity, during which  many kindly favors have been shown  me, which shall be treasured in my  memory.  The past year has seen many improvements in the district over which  I have reigned as May Queen; chief  among these has been the wonderful  and beneficial Sumas'Dyking project,  which is now. nearing completion.  As your retiring May Queen, I  take this opportunity of expressing  my thanks to,you all for the Loyal  support accorded me during my  vfiisjn, and trust that this loyalty  will remain during the years which  follow.  My chosen successor, T now take  pleasure in formally abdicating, by  placing on your head the emblem of  your' high-office.. Queen Evelyn, in  all sincerity and love I wish you a  bright and happy-reign, and commend to your generous consideration  the welfare of this people.  Speeeh <if May Queen TCIect  Queen Evelyn responded in the following kindly words.  Royal Sister. I thank you for your  gracious and affectionate words, and  for the confidence and hope they inspire for the continued welfare of  ray subjects through the coming  year, when I shall reign as Queen of  Mpv. T tr.nnk all those who through  their kindly efforts' achieved the d'g-  nitv of this position for me.  I acknowledge with joy the homage of my subjects and feel assured  the fealty and love of you all.  (Continued on  Last Page)  Having my name used, in  ed letters in .connection  -printing for May Day, I'  make an .explanation, to  dents of Abbotsford, who have shown  me every courtesy and respect during  the past ten years, in .which I have  been engaged as ��������� . correspondent for  newspapers.  At tho request- of the May Day  committee (of which I .have been a  member for nine years); I asked Mr.  Keller for prices on thc printing for  May Day. Mr. Heller did not give a  slated price but said lie would do  the printing at the same price as Mr.  Bates and. give a cash donation.  I gave his statement as I understood it to the committee and did  not.in any way solicit .the work :'6'r  Mr. Bates; . but in view of the fact  that Mr...Bates has given the committee satisfaction and shown 'every  courtesy in former years, when there  was no other printer here, they decided on giving the printing to him  again this year.  When interviewed on the matter  recently, .Mr. Heller said that when  1 asked him for a price" on the May  Day printing, that he' did not give  me' a stated price as- he thought Mr.  Bates was around the corner waiting,  for these prices. I wish to contradict this, as I asked .- for printing  prices in all sincerity- for the May  Day committee.'  ��������� Mr. Heller also stated, when interviewed,, that he offered to do the May  Day printing at the-" same price  as  ^liV-Bate^.j/aiid./^jv^-a^ca'sl^ "donation  (of equal value).'    f do hot' reVnem-'  ber  Mr. Heller using the last three  words,-nor do I yet understand their  meaning.: In conversation'with three  others of the Ma3r    Day    committee,  Mr.-Heller-stated  that he would do  the   May Day printing  at the.same  Vate^ as Mr.  Bates, and  give'a'cash  donation.  Mr. Heller also admitted when  interviewed, that the name programme had never been mentioned  between he and I, and yet in the  letters which he circulated in Abbotsford he states that lie offered o  donate these programmes to the May  Day   committee.  Had Mr. Holler been ready to give  a stated price on 'the printing the  programmes would have been mentioned along with the.other articles.  In a recent issue of the News, it  is stated that our local printer d;d  not have a clear idea of what was  wanted in printing, yet the same  article states that he_ was willing to  make a donation of something of  which he had no idea of the value.  Having been misrepresented by.  these letters circulated, I thank the  residents and merchants of Abbotsford for the co-operation so kindly  shown me in the past, and ask that  this be continued under the circumstances.  I want it to be distinctly understood that I wish Mr. Heller, every  success as a new comer "to Abbotsford, and do not wish in any way to  harm his business. I  right my name in the  public.  Yours very  MRS.  CLAYBURN  Clayburn Baseball team will play  the game against the Cloverdale  team in Cloverdale today, commencing at C p. m. A return game will  be played between Cloverdale and  Clayburn in Clayburn on May 3 0th,  commencing at the same hour.  The official opening of the ^Clayburn Tennis courts was marked by  a tennis tournament held last Saturday, in which eight doubles .entered, Miss Ball and Mr. Keith were  the winners of the day.  rcMrniK day at  MAY' DAY NOTRS  WHATCOM ROAD  At the sports day held by the  Sumas W. I. at the . municipal huh,  Whatcom Road, yesterday, Rev. A.  H. Priest gave a short address -in  the meaning of Empire Day,' which  was much- appreciated and enjoyed.  The songs of the school children  were excellent as was also the .attendance. ' Miss Peebles . of Ncw  Westminster favored the holiday  makers with several selections. in  Ihe evening'a dance was' given in the  hall, and it also 'was a success.  At the home of the May Queen,  Mr. and Mrs. ll.s Brown, the guests  for May Day included Mr. and Mrs.  Robt. Harvey, Mrs. R. Brown ' and  Piaster Edwin Brown of Bellingham;  and Mr. R. Brown of Vancouver;  also Mr. and Mrs'. C. Harvey of Cloverdale.  children"of the "district "to enjoy May  Day eacli  year.  As far as the printing of the  programmes is concerned and the  advertisements on them, we must  say he has done a noble work (?)  in a seeming saving of .$2.00 to -the  merchants at the great personal  risk to himself probably of a heavy  fine for breaking the postal regulations'. But then there are always  those who rush in where angels fear  to tread.  For the luvva    Mike,    use discre-'  tion!  Addresses were given at the raising of thc flag, by" Mr. F. J. R.  Whitchelo, who welcomed the gathering; Mr. D. Hip well, of New Westminster, who' spoke on the orphanage work, and Rev. Mr. Richardson  of Sumas, Wash., who remarked on  the good fellowship existing betw.eea  the United , States and Canada, and  that it was a pleasure for the Goddess of Liberty to be present on our  Empire'Day and take part in the  crowning .ceremonies of our May  Queen. The retiring May Queen,  Miss Freda Nelson, was escorted by  Rev. W. Robertson; the Queen-elect,  ) Miss Evelyn Brown, by Mr. F. J. R.  Whitlicelo; Miss Canada, by Mr. J.  J. McPhee and the Goddess of Liberty by Rev. Mr. Richardson of  Sumas.  A very nice parade followed the  flag ' raising ceremony. Messrs.  Moore, Bates and- Powell acted as  judges' of the decorated autos and  floats, the prizes being won by Mr.  George Harris of Sumas (the car in  which the Goddess of Liberty rode),  .and"Mrs. Harper Nixon of Vancou^  ver (the retiring May Queen's carriage).  During the day music was rendered on the grounds' by the Abbotsford brass band.  The dance in the evening was well  attended, and very much enjoyed.  The May Day ball games were attended by a large crowd of enthusiastic fans.  The baseball game, between the  World team of Vancouver and the  Abbotsford boys', was an easy win  for'tlie World-, -the -score being 9-S,  The  Columbian     ' University' '   of-  New Westminster played against ihe  Abbotsford football     team and    lost  with a score of 8-1.  Mrs. W.' Robertson and her daughter, Mrs Frazer, were Vancouver visitors this week.  Services will be held ha St. Matthew's Anglican Church at Abbotsfcard  every Sunday' night at 7:#������. Rbt. A.

The Post publishes tiie statement  of Mrs. Taylor, a member of the May  Day committee, and representative  of the Post. Last week Mr. Holler  in his paper sought to square himself, but which statement in his explanation did he mean?  Last week Mrs. Taylor wished to  have a statement published but we  prevailed upon her not to publiab  anything in 'connection, with tlie affair but since Mr. Lleller has, apparently, at his first opportunity, ueed  his * own paper to fight a pergonal  matter, "which his readers care but  little'about, it is only right that Mrs.  Taylor should tell her side of the  story.  Now that both parties have had  the opportunity, we leave it to the  public to decide whether Mr. Heller  in dealing with a lady has acted the  gentlemen or not; t and also as to  whether he has really practised the  true community spirit in dealing  with a representative of the local  branch of the True Blues, that has  for years made it possible for      the  Our purchases are direct from the manufacturer-  Jobbers' profits are eliminated.

Soon the  public schools of the east will be  teaching that Vancouver has been  discovered and that the development  of British Columbia which has lain  dormant for so many years is proceeding with immense strides. Something else "besides a sea of moan1  tains" in that province has been discovered���������that there are immense  valleys in that province, fertile,, and  with a climate that is second to  none in the whole dominion.  Tho visit of Premier Oliver and  the many speeches he has made in  the east is'surely bearing fruit. One  only regret can bo that he has left  this matter so long. Why was it that  back ten or twelve years ago he did  not when in  the east tell about the  ���������ipron or her sleeves and each talk?  an.d talks. Beginning with th'?. never-disputed fact that woman's work-  is never done, to say nothing about  when it commences, the back fence  philosophy ranges widely, . settling  many intimate problems that vex  mankind and discussing the more  difficult problems of women's' welfare. The experienced housekeeper tells the newly-wed how to manage, her husband: "It's best not to  tell him everything���������what he  doesn't know won't hurt him." The  bride says her husband doesn't like  biscuits. Well, if she makes good  biscuits there is no reason- why he  should net like them in time. Grocers, milkmen and wash-women aro  more difficult problems to settle  than husbands, and they require  hours' of comparison and discussion  ugain.    No,    women are not. shiver-  port of Vancouver?      We remember ig on either side of thc    fence ovei  -back nine or ten years'ago when tho , solicitude for the political future ot  McBrlde government was in power  that prominent Liberals of this province, while back east, instead of  boosting B. C, tried to give this province a knock financially, by telling  the. people' how nearly broke the  government was,, and what poor government' we lmd. We have always  thought it very unpatriotic indeed.  Now though it is different, and it is  hoped that'all future eastern trips  will carry the boosting badge instead  of that cry' that'B. C. is not what it  ehould  be.  Of course there can be no question but that an open port all the  year round would carry away the  grain of the prairie provinces much  faster than through a port that was  frozen for six .months of the year.  There may be difficulties in the way  but/through time'these will be overcome.' Anything that will make Vancouver grow and prosper will help  the'Fraser Valley. ��������� The fruit industry and Other branches of the farming operations of the Fraser Valley  will benefit thereby, and instead of  having to send all; or nearly all our  berries to the prairies', we will have  a larger market at the coast: It  will be a real boon to the man on  the soil if Vancouver were suddenly  to have-its population increased to  something like three or four hundred  thousand.  our city' or whether Germany will  eventually pay thc reparations to  France.

ROOT  VEGETABLES  ACT  Grades of Potatoes and    Onions and  General   Provisions.  THE HIGHWAY SYSTEM  - OF   SASKATCHEWAN  The Government of Saskatchewan  has a road policy founded upon certain underlying principles. These  of labor; and the shortness of the  working season.  There have been difficulties in  selecting the right type, because  i.ew road engineers are familiar- wi h  working in a clay country,  are; the location, based upon the  greatest good to the greatest number; the natural conditions which  obtain in the district, such as the  topography and presence of road material; the need of'foreseeing future  development, and planning to meet  it; the type of-road that should be  ch'esen; the-construction, and lastly*, the preservation of the road.  Briefly, the main points are: location; selection of type; proper construction, and preservation.  ;,The difficulties of a road programme in' Saskatchewan are seer.  from its great area, and small population, between 600,000 and 700,-  000, less than two people to the  square mile; yet with 210,000 miles  of roadway.  ' Another difficulty is that the  roads Avere laid out in straight lines,  through swamps, bluffs, holes, alkali land, with1 no idea of their being useful,  OVER THE  BACK  FENCE  We have often wondered why  women stand talking in. tlieir back  yards, each hand thrust up the  other sleeve when they know the  water in'the dishpan is getting cold  and the milk ought to be put away.  There isn't any reason. It seems  foolish, and it is foolish, but they do  it just the same, and the men  would do it if they were women. Man  would say that if he were going to  Btay out in the cold he would put on  his hat and coat. Woman would,  too, if she went through the performance with malice aforethought.  But the. woman Is always going into  the house the very next minute. Shb  doesn't, however, even though she  believes she will, and come to think  of it, a talk over the back fence  would never happen if she deliberately planned it and wrapped herself  up to keep warm during the performance. A woman never does it deliberately. She just stops as she  carries out the potato peelings, or  hangs up the stockings. First, she  calls, long distance, to her neighbor,  who is sweeping her back steps.  Then each moves a little closer until only the fence is between them.  Eacli insists that she is very busy  and-niust go in immediately, and  one tries to wrap    herself    In    her  ;'. In .response to several enquiries  regarding thc Root Vegetable Ace  ,'and its requirements, the following  particulars are given: The Act is administered by the Fruit Branch of  the Dominion Department of Agriculture. It specifies, first, the. grades'  adopted for potatoes and onions,  the manner of their packing, and  the marking of containers. It then  provides for the sale of potatoes,  onions, artichokes, beets, parsnips',  and turnips by weight (except when  the top leaves are' attached or potatoes are sold by the barrel) and defines the duties of inspectors, the  penalties for violations' of the Act.  The Act does not apply to new potatoes shipped between June 1 and  September' 30, inclusive, to seed potatoes, to green onions, and to potatoes or onions for export.  The grades adopted for potatoes  offered for sale in Canada are:  Canada A quality-���������Sound, reasonably mature potatoes of similiar  varietal characteristics, which are  practically free from dirt or other  foreign matter, frost injury, sunburn  abnormal growth, growth cracks,  cuts, scab, blight, soft rot, dry .rot,  or damage caused by disease, insects,  or mechanical or other means. The  diameter of the potatoes of the  round varieties must not be less  than one and seven-eights inches and  of tho long.varieties one and three  fourths inches.  Canada It quality���������Reasonably  mature potatoes of similiar varietal,  cmracteristics, which are practically  free from dirt or other foreign matter, frost injury, and soft rot, and  which are free from-serious damage  caused by ' sunburn, cuts, scab,  blight, dry rot, or other disease, insects, or mechanical or other means.  The diameter must not be less than  one and one-half inches.  To allow for variations incident to  grading and handling in each of  the above two grades, five per cent  by weight of any lot may be under  the prescribed size, and in addition,  six per cent, by weight of any such  lot may be below the remaining requirements of the grade, providing  that not more than two per cent, by  weight of the entire lot have flesh  uninjured by soft rot.  Canada C, ungraded quality, includes only potatoes of one and one-  half inches or more in diameter.  Four"grades of onions are created  by' the Act, as follows:  Fancy quality-���������Sound well-cured  onions' of similiar varietal characteristics not less than three inches in  diameter.  Choice quality���������Sound, well-cured  onions' of similiar varietal characteristics not less than two inches in  diameter.  Standard quality���������Sound, well-  cured onions of similiar varietal  characteristics, not less than one  quarter inches in diameter.  Boilers���������These include only sound  well-cured onions of similiar varietal characteristics that may be below  one and one quarter inches in diameter.  All the foregoing three grades  must be free from doubles and scullions, not sprouted, nor peeled, nor  with rooth growth, and .without  damage caused by disease, insects,  mechanical or other means.  In order to allow for variations incident to grading and handling, three  per cent, by weight of any .lot of  "Boilers" may be under the requirements of the'grade.

A  FUNNY  PROPOSITION  CANADA  WILL HAVE  OWN FAIR BUILDING  OTTAWA, May, 21. ��������� All the  plans for Canada's exhibition to be  held in London from April 2 to October  1 next year,    are    practically  completed. The Canadian Government, it is announced, will erect its  own building on a commanding site  in Wembley Park. Work on the  erection of the building is to begin  this' summer, and will be completed  before the exhibition is opened to  the public on April 20, 1924.  The building will be 415 feet long  and 300 feet wide and in it, through  the medium of displays and exhibits,  visitors will have an opportunity of  learning something of the extensive  resources of Canada, the products  of the soil and the wide range of  manufactured articles.  The resources and products of  each of the nine provinces and the  two territories will be displayed.  The Canadian exhibit is' to be financed, controlled and directed by the  federal government, at an estimated  cost of $1,000,000.  On the same site as the Canadian  Government building will be two  additional separate buldings to be  built by the Canadian Pacific Railways, each with a floor space of approximately ten thousand feet.  Plans for all three buildings have  been approved by the Dominion Government and the official, architects  for the exhibition. When completed  these buildings, will be so located  as to be readily seen from all parts  of the grounds, set apart    for    the  A man comes into this world without his consent and' leaves it against  his will.

While practising for the School  Sports, Betty Fowles had the misfortune to fall on her wrist, causing  a very bad sprain. She will not be  able to attend school for some days.  Twin boys arrived in the -home of  Mr. and. Mrs. Jas. McDonald, Dun-  ach, on Sunday, May 13. ���������'  "Mothers' Day" was observed in'  tho Presbyterian Church . at the  morning service on May 13. Fully. 80  per cent, of the pupils enrolled in the  ���������S. S. as well as many in the Cradle,  Roll were present. A programme'.as  arranged by the s! S. committee was  carried out- in each particular class.  Appropriate literary- numbers wore  given by Mrs. Gamsby, Miss Anna  Ohmd, and Master Malcolm McKinnon. The senior girls led the singing  and rendered "My Mother", during  the offertory.  The- floral decorations were in  keeping with the day, a profusion of  flowers���������dog-wood; narcissus ��������� and  lilac���������lending its beauty and fragrance to the edifice.  At the regular meeting of the  Community Club, held on May 16,  it was decided to give their play on  Friday, June 1. A three-act comedy entitled "A Family Affair" will  be presented under the able .direction of Miss M. B. Carr. Arrangements were also made to hold military whist at the close of each business meeting. On the the 16th there  were six tables . the winner being  "Japan" while "Canada" presented  the lowest score.  Mr. Wm. G. Morison, Mr. and Mrs.  Barnes and Master Eric left on a  motor trip to California. Mr. Morison expects' to be away a month but  Mr. Barnes may make his home in  the South.  The fame of Mt. Lehman's wonderful turkey hen has gone far. The  other day Mrs. Wm. Bates received  a letter from a man in the Gatineau  Vallev, Quebec, asking for prices of  this turkey's eggs. As' was reported  last fall'the turkey had laid over 200  eggs in. the season. Such a total constituted a record and an article on  this fowl appeared in an Eastern  paper. .  MR. MOTHIC11WI5LL: Mr. Speaker, when' the House rose at six  o'clock, I had just finished depicting, to some exleni, at,least, the condition of agriculture on the prairies,  f had shown both extremes, the well-  to-do-man who was on < easy street,  and the ne'er-do-well; who was pretty nearly on the rocks.rif not there  already. Between those two extremes we have all classes and orders of people, from the man in  comfortable circumstances down to  the one I have described.  I will deal with another phase of  this question later on in my remarks.  I cannot spend too much time on it,  because   I   presume  other    speakers  desire to address the House on many  nuestions during this budget debate.  1  cannot, however,    dispose of agriculture  without    passing   on' to  the  Pacific. During.the last ten years or  so, Ave never looked on  British  Columbia, indeed, she did not look upon  herself,   with   any   great  seriousness  as an agricultural country.      We all  knew of her mines, fisheries, timber  and  other  wonderful   resources,   but  it has taken these last ten or fifteen  years   to   demonstrate   that  she   has  great     agricultural     possibilities  as  well.   I   had   the  pleasure 'of  a  trip  out into that beautiful country with  its many diversifications,    its    many  sources of occupation. British Columbia has two port's, and no  man  can  tell the future possibilities of either  of them. British Columbia has shown  to the world her possibilities by the  performance  of a  T-lolstein  cow    at  the Agassiz experimental farm which  made a record by. producing over 1,-  600  pounds  of butter,   the    largest  output of butter    in    the    world. In  poultry also she is making wonderful records. In the northern part of  British Columbia,    along the    Canadian National    highway,   there , are  possibilities' of development that are  almost   indescribable     for   the   man  who is prepared- to go on the    land  and  to do some hard work clearing  it.    I do not mean the heavily    timbered, but ��������� the    partially    timbered  land.    I Jiave not time at this stage  to dwell on this subject any longer.  Explains Change r,  In Sales Tax  OTTAWA, May 21.���������In explanation of the sales tax change in his  budget proposals, the finance minister said there had been a great  deal of dissatisfaction ' with the  form in which the sales tax had been  Imposed in the past. Representation  had been made to the government  In this regard, and it was now proposed to impose this tax at the  source instead of dividing it up' as.  heretofore. The tax would in futuro  be on the duty paid value of goods,  or on the - manufactured cost of  home-made goods'. It was proposed to add to the-list of exemptions  from the sales tax, raw furs, wool,  tiles, manuscripts'1 and newsprint.  The receipt tax would be continued, Mr. Fielding said. - This was a  sound tax, and no British chancellor of the exchequer would think of  repealing'it.  The cheque tax - last year had  been placed at $2,' said the finance  minister. It had. been reported to  the government that this tax resulted in a number of persons living  near the border doing .their business  with American banks. It had not  been considered advisable to do a-  v/ay with the.tax completely. But  the maximum hereafter would be $1  instead of $2.  ���������   This, provision would,  .apply,   also  to notes .and bills of exchange.

On Monday evening the hospital  board, met for tlie passing of accounts and general business. It was  decided to go ahead with the fixing  of tlie grounds.  Next Sunday in the Presbyterian  Church the , annual Go-to-Sunday-  School Day will be observed in connection with the church services at  11 a .m. A very fine programme is  being provided in which the May  Queen and Miss Canada will take  part.  ��������� Garden varieties of the Gladiolus  were produced by the crossing of  many -wild species introduced from  Europe and Africa. The latter contingent in particular has' produced a  large number of useful species; over  80 are listed-from that continent a-  lone. One of our latest acquisitions  from Africa is Gladiolus primulinus.  It was discovered right in the spray  of the Zambesi Falls. This species  has a hooded blossom and its crosses are very graceful and include  many beautiful tints of color, all of  which have a more or less yellow  shade.  The Gladiolus recommends itself  for the small garden owing to the  fact that, although it is one of tlie  most handsome-flowers we have, it  is comparatively cheap. Many of the  best varieties of corms' cost only a  few cents each. They are easy to grow  and perfectly hardy in this climate.  They are particularly valuable for  cutting purposes as they keep a very  long time when placed in water..  Although Gladioli have been  known as garden plants for over  three centuries' they did not attract  much attention until the visit of her  Majesty Queen Victoria to Fontain-  nebleau, France, in 1855. On her return to England Her Majesty took  this flower under her patronage and  had them placed on the Royal table  at meal times. This fact soon made  them fashionable, and ever since  that date leading hybridists have  been producing increasingly beautiful varieties in large numbers.  Gladioli are not very particular as  regards soil, but.prefer a fairly light  warm soil, well drained cold clays  are objectionable. The soil should be  deeply tilled, but no fresh manure  should be used. For hand cultivation, plant in rows 18.inches to two  feet apart and the corms placed six  to eight inches apart in the rows.  Cover the bulbs with three or four  inches of soil.  For Cut Blooms  This' flower is one of the best for  cut flowers. As soon as the first  bloom appears the spike should be  cut, always leaving all the leaves on  the growing plant so as' to build up  the conn for next year's use. _ If  placed in a vase of water the remaining buds will-continue to open and  remain fresh for a week or more.  The water should be changed each  day and a small piece cut off the  ;stem daily.  The corms should be dug and  stalks removed before the. first severe frost. They may be stored in a  cellar, with potatoes as they require  about the same winter conditions as  that vegetable.  On May 1 nineteen men in the employ of the Dominion Goverme^t  Forestry. Branch...assumed, duty. ..aa  Forest-Fire Rangers- and will continue in that capacity until on or  about the 30th of September.  These, men,  who work  under tha  direction of E. Walmsley,   Dominion  Timber Agent and ' James -. Selkirk,  Chief Ranger, are    stationed at various points within the Agency, which  extends East to North Bend.    "Their  first and    most    important    duty,"  states Mr. Walmsley,    "is ,to prevent  loss of timber through fire, .and each,  individual is    aware    that . .through  himself this cannot.be accomplished:  consequently every ,Ranger    endeavors to enlist the interest of the settlers   within   his    district . in    their  burning of  waste material,  It being  distinctly understood that while    thd  protecion of the timber from fire lis ���������  esential in the interests of the people  as a whole, the interests' of the .indif-  vidual  settler,   endeavoring  to" hew  eut a home for himself .and .family,  must, and does,    receive    consideration.    Every ranger is supplied with  fire-fighting      tools such, as'    water  buckets, .shovels, axes, .'etc., jand'^ th.e  Department keeps    ready  for emergency . several gasoline    pumps with  the necessary hose,    through which  many,  what  would    otherwise  havp  proved  serious fires have', been subdue without loss.      The Forest Fire  Act requires that all camps', be pro-  Vied    .with     specified     fire-fighting  equipment and it is the duty of   the  Ranger to see that.this provision,ie  carried out.    It is    generally foiindj  however, that operators realize    the  danger of fire and in addition to providing such equipment as 'the    law  requires, many of them employ spec,  ial rangers' at their own expense to  personally look after their Interests,  which in    some    cases,    represents  millions of dollars    in    timber ��������� and  equipment. The Department requires  that each Ranger furnish ,  a   -plan",  showing the position of   every    fire  burning over an area of ten- acres' or  more, accompanied by a form 'giving  the cause of the fire, number of men  employed fighting it and loss of timber. A very complete record: is kept  so that at the close of the season'   it  is' possible to tabulate the.causes, of  fire under their proper heading and  the total loss sustained."  Mr. Walmsley states that each  succeeding year he finds an increased interest in timber protection, the  general public realizing that timber  destroyed through fire is a loss, not  only to the Government of the day or  the individual owner, but to. every  citizen, and while a special effort is  being made by the Dominion' 'and  Provincial Forestry Branches .during  the present week to enlist the.interest of the people, it is not. proposed  to stop at the end of that period.  Instead the campaign will, be coc-  ducted throughout the country.until  every individual is made to- realize'  that the timber assets are worthy of  attention, conservation from every  man, woman and child resident in the  Province, not one of whom can  truthfully say that he or she could.  live in comfort if the for.est supply  was exhausted.

Queen Freda was attended by  Irma Bryanton, Glenis Taylor, Maud  McGowan and Elsie McDonald as  maids of honor.  The maids in the court of O.ueen  Evelyn included, Ivy Lee, Joyce  Phillips, Isabel Mclnnes' and Ivy  Baiiey. Masters James Hutchinson  and Douglas McGowan acted as pages  for their Majesties.  The concert programme was' a very  attractive one,, consisting of folk  songs, drills, dialogues, etc., very  creditably given by the children. Se-  ections were given during the afternoon by Woods' orchestra, with Miss  McMenemy as pianist.  The children's cottillion took place  directly after the concert, the dancing being immensely enjoyed to the  strains of the Juvenile .orchestra.  In the evening the Grand May Day  ball was held in the theatre with  Westland's orchestra rendering the  dance music. The attendance was  as' usual,  very  large.  Rev. W. Robertson and Mr. F. J.  R. Whitchelo fulfilled the duties as  escorts to the Queens during the festival, and Mr. J. J. McPhee as escort  to Miss Verna Stinson, who was Miss  Canada during the day.  Music was supplied on the grounds  and during the parade by the Abbotsford brass band, who deserve special  mention for the fine manner in  which selections were given.  The day was an entire success and.  will be treasured in the minds' of  the young folk of Abbotsford, who  are already looking forward to May  Day of 1924.  The proceeds of the festival are  to be used, one third for the purchase  of equipment for the Abbotsford  school, and two thirds in aid of the  True Blue orphanage in New Westminster. Tlie teaching staff of the  Abbotsford school had entire charge  of the training of the children for  the concert and other parts and are  to be complimented for their splendid work. .  The teachers of tiie public school  are to be congratulated for ".the  very excellent work which they  must have done in ���������- training the  children for the May Day programme. The success attained by the  children in the hall was only attained by the very efficient way in which  tho children were trained by the  teachers. It was a credit to both  teacher and pupil.  10, li. Knc'c riK.'e f;ii'l^---iK-ibo] Me  v:r.'iiott (Hvadnu'l: Fro da' Iceland  .'.YiMiKfjui): Jennie Frye (nunacli).  .11. C.

The chief planks in  the new government's platform were  "The aboiition of (.lie party caucus";  reduction of taxation and financial  retrenchment,'-' the last spelled with  a capital "It"; elimination of "Government House," and 'a strict enforcement of tlie Ontario temperance  act." Let us see bow these planks  have been carried out. The/'abolition of the caucus" is dealt with in  another article in  the' caption of  That Came Back  ern ment house" ,  strong and growing  every day with Mr.  supporters,  and   financial  KEEPING POSTED  It .used to be an old-time, joke  that some people were so fond of  newspapers that they even read the  advertisements.  That might have been a humorous  remark years ago. At that period  some, merchants would riin an advertisement a whole year ��������� unchanged.  Clothing dealers would start advertising , January first w.ith notice  of overcoats-for sale and would.keep  on  advertising overcoats  uut.il  July.  Today people read advertising as  a ��������� matter of business. The women  read it just as a farmer reads price  current or a banker reads the financial laws. They thereby get ideas as'  to how they can 'save on household  or  personal  expenses.  Probably a majority of the women  turn first to the advertising carefully. Even if they have no business  enterprises of their own, they are  interested in the advertising as' a.  reflection of the business life of the  town.  Hence,' it is perhaps necessary  to suggest to the readers of this  newspaper that its advertising columns are worthy of the most, careful attention. Still it is worth while  to say- that there is no time when ad~  verising. is' worth such careful attention as in midsummer. All kinds  of merchants have the proposition  before them, of cleaning out their  stocks before cool , weather sets' in.  That "take a good deal of publicity.  The goods will not move of themselves. The pubic must be told about  them and in some detail.  . The story of what is' happening in  ythe stores will be found in the adver-  'tising columns of this newspaper.  Most.newspaper readers are doing it,  and if will repay their closest scrutiny.  til is- issue, under  "The Caucus  The "gov-  is" still going  more popular  Drury and' bis  Reduction of taxation  retrenchment" must  have been forgotten because the provincial debt is now one hundred and  forty-three million dollars greater  than it was three years ' ago. If  "strict enforcement of the Ontario  temperance act," has taken place  the people would. Ike to be shown  some evidence of the fact. The official statistics' show that, the consumption of hard liquors has steadily increased in bite years; bootlegging is rampant all over the province  and thugs reap a rich harvest as' "informers." The Toronto Saturday  Night in a recent article dealing  with the resignation or ..Attorn ���������>'-  General Raney from the Drurv cabinet apologizes for Mr. Raney's non-  enforcement of tin, Ontario temperance act in the following words:-- .  "Though no journal has been more  straightforward in criticism of the  attorey-geueral than Saturday Night,  it is' willing to admit, thn'; he is entitled to sympathy. The Angel Gabriel himself could not seriously try  to enforce such a legislative abortion  as the Ontario temperance act without incurring disfavor; for the very  good reason that the vast ��������� Majority  of those who voted for it. are unwilling to lift a finger' toward assisting  in its enforcement'. This is of  course the history of sumptuary  laws everywhere. The O.T.A. cannot b.e enforced without the employment of the lowest scum of the community as informers; and the spirit  of many of its clauses is in direct  violation of the principles of liberty  which it is' supposed to be the func-  ton' of democratic governments  protect. It is the irony of fate  tlie most effective opposition to Mr.  Raney should have come from those  very rural districts which voted for  the O.T.A. in such numbers as to  force it upon'the province at'large.  Opposition to him assumed concrete  form when Mr. Lennox of North  York proved his charges that thugs  were being employed by the attorney-general to enforce the O.T.A.  That did not worry urban communities very much for they meet thugs  on the street every way, and regard-  i  partyt system, tlie fountain head of  the evils of secret political diplomacy, the place where'the high ideals  of members were corrupted by counsels of expediency, the chief, engine  of party tyranny! Mr. Drury would  have none of it, and his journalistic  supporters' heralded bis re&oive as  cardinal proof of his enlightenment  and sincerity. At the time it was  pointed, out'in these columns that  tlie caucus was indespeusable to efficient administration, under a democratic system, of government; for  the simple reason that before a ministry can proceed with'a legislative  programme it must find out whether  its programme is acceptable to its  followers. -  "Experience seems to " have converted Premier Drury to the-latter  view. Far from' being non-existent,  he and his journalistic supporters  now treat the caucus as a sacrosanct  factor in the governmental system to  be regarded with the most rigid re- J  spect. The former whip, Mr. Hicks',  is denounced in picturesque terms of  opprobrium for having 'betrayed the  socrols of' the caucus.' The Premier  himself sought to exclude Mr. Cassel-  man, a Farmer member from the  caucus because lie suspected a, 'leak'  and thought that gentleman responsible. All of which is funny in  view of the announcements of three  years ago that the'Drury government  would have no secrets, and that its  followers were to lie free to vote  and talk as they ploased.

Intense interest is being taken in  this' contest as-it is admitted by all  students-of political economy that  the results of the polling will have  far-reaching effects?, not only in Ontario, but in every other province in  the dominion, as well as In tuture  federal elections.  Up to 1919 Ontario had followed  two-party system of govern ment���������  Liberal and Conservative���������but in the  general elections of that year some  four or five different -parties entered  the contest and when the smoke of  battle cleared away the old province  found it had adopted the group system. The Farmers' party had the  largest number of supporters, the  Liberals were second, the Conservatives third and Labor and Independents fourth and fifth respectively. No group bad a clear majority in  the house; but, after some ;manipu-  lation a working agreement was  made between tlie Farmer and Labor  members and the lieutenant-governor  called  upon   E.  C.   Drury  to  form  a  eel their employment as informers as  a foregone conclusion. But in rural  communities it.caused real anger and  disgust, which found expression in  the U.F.O. clubs'. If he really had  political ambitions, Mr. Raney made  a grave error in not candidly informing his critics on the sidelines that  if they wanted the O.T.A. enforced  they must accept such gentry as the  agents of law and order. Instead he  tired to whitewash them, and to defend the O.T.A. as a model of jurisprudence. No doubt in his heart he  .feels that the O.T.A: far from being  'well-inspired must prove the political doom of anyone who tries to enforce it and will, grimly watch the  adventures of his successor."  Group government has failed in  Ontario. It has failed in every country where it. has been tried.  Ontario's unfortuate experience  with group government should be a  warning to the people of British Columbia. This province wants none of  it;    j     ... "��������� ' ���������:  THE CAUCUS THAT-GAME. BACK.  The "party caucus" of the Conservative and'Liberal-parties has been  damned uphill and down dale by  every new political cult or group that  has sprung into existence in-the past  few years, the farmers' party being  no exception.to the rule���������in fact���������  "the abolition of.the caucus" was  one'of their strongest planks But  alas! alas! time works many wonders. Mere is what Tlie Toronto Saturday Night has to say as to how  the Drury government���������tlie Farmers' government of Ontario���������has  kept its promise to abolish the caucus.  "To those whose memories are not  abnormally short, the rancorous discussions that have been going on in  the Ontario legislature about alleged  betrayal of the secrets of the Farmers' 'caucus' furnish ironical amusement. Early in 1920, after Hon. E.  C. Drury had assumed office and  when Ihe first session of tlie present  legislature was about to bo convened, it was announced with rolU'M'iis  fervor that the 'caucus' was to be a-  bolished. 'A has le caucus!' was -Die  cry. It was denounced av- one of  the outworn      iniquities    of the old  Due to a healthy demand for  motors cars in Canada, as well "as-a  steadily increasing demand overseas.  General Motors of Canada, 'Limited  have been able tp operate their  Walkerville and.Oshawa factories to  ful capacity for tlie past year and in  April reached the high peak in their  history as far as one month's production is concerned. Four thousand  four hundred and seventy-three finished automobiles were produced in  <\pril, and this is considered a very  good record, inasmuch as the cars  included McLaughlin-Buick,'. Chevrolet, Cadillac, Oldsmobile and Oakland motor cars. ''  A little less than two years ago  Mr. R.S.' McLaughlin, president, of  General' Motors of Canada Limited,  with his associated executives in  General Motors corporation decided  to enter the export field and devote  a part of their manufacture of Canadian-built Buicks. ' Chevrolets and  other General Motors cars'.' -' The  venture has proved a. decided, success  and the demand in England, the  British colonies and foreign countries has kept on growing. Actual  records show shipments of Oshawa-  made motor cars to 42 foreign countries. This demand, coupled with a  very satisfactory market in Canada  for Genral Motors products will koep  the Oshawa and Walkerville factory going at top speed for some  time to come.  This record of over 4000 "cars' per  month is all the more gratifying bo  cause these cars are built, not merely' assembled in Canada. General motors is' the only motor company    in  Canada, outside of    the Ford    Motor  who operate a motor and arle plant.  This plant is located in Walkerville,  Out., where over a thousand skilled  mechanics are kept busy in tne production   of  motors,  axles  and- other  heavy'parts for General Motors cars  asssembled in  Oshawa for the  Canadian and    export market.      Tn  the  case of the Chevrolet motor car oyer  "82 per cent, of    the    cost of the car  represents  money  actually  spent   in  Canada for labor, material and parts  purchased from Canadian parts manufacturers.      This is a much higher  percentage than exists with the average  Canadian-built  car     and   reprb  seats all that can be posibly produced in    Canada at the      present time.  Ignition systems,  speedometers,   and  several other parts or accessories are  not manufactured in  this      country  and it is necessary  to import  these  from  the United States.      But even  this  department of the industry    is  not without its beneficial  effects to  Canada,  because  on account of  this  importation by    General    Motors  of  Canada Limited, is estimated to run  over six millions of dollars in money  actually    paid  to    Canadian    labor.

General Motors is today    occupying one  of the premier positions with respect  to size.and importance, of the industrial   institutions  of     the  Dominion.  In estimating the importance of the  motor industry  to Canada one must  not overlook the      associated industries which are    today thriving    because the demand for motor cars    in  in so healthy a condition.    Canadian  tanners who furnish the leather used  in  upholstering,  manufacturers       of  textiles used in    closed  cars,  closed  body builders,    tire    manufacturers,  paint  and     varnish     manufacturers,  sheet metal      workers,      and many  other associated industries are today  one of the brightest    spots in Canadian  trade and  commerce, and  indications seem'to'point    to a    contiu-  ance of this splendid condition.

HOLLYWOOD       IS  THEATRE  OF BATTLE  Hollywood will be thc real battle  ground of the .warefate between the  organized and independent fifcu interests this summer. This is the  message delivered by Joseph M.  Schenck, leading independent producer, who returned to Los Angeles  this week from New York.  "The. deciding issue in the death-  grip tussle impending will not be  the marshaling of finances, but the  quality of pictures'. As the center  of world cinema production. "Hollywood will be the actual 'theatre of  war.'  "The day is coming when a picture must stand on its own merits.  Today to a great extent a picture  'gets over' because of the organization behind it; tomorrow the organization will get over because of the  pictures it puts out."  The film industry    Schenck    said  appears from a New York viewpoint  to be in a healthier state than  ever  before.    Production of      established  companies are forming and starting.!  work daily.

Comment that the transaction had  "the earmark of" a deliberate  swindle" and other equally severe  strictures , were expressed by Chief  Justice Hunter when directing Pacific Properties Limited to refund  $8239,pa*d by William Bruges, East  Liverpool, Ohio, octogenarian, on account of two Port Mann lots.  "This appears to me like an undefended case;" said ,the .chief justice,  "no evidence having been called for  the defense.

"This was false and manifestly  false." stated the chief,justice.  '"It culls for comment that tho.  transaction should be followed un by  the'presentment of a document which  *s one of the most audacious ever  brought before tho court," lie added-  "II. boars,the earmark of a plain and  deliberate swindle."  The reference hero was to a clause  'attached to a sale agreement, 'forwarded by Hie Pacific Properties  Limited, to Mr. Burgess' for signature,1 but, owing to its wording, not  signed by-the latter. Tho clause exonerated the company of all liability  for any representations made by ' it  regarding the lots to be purchased'by  Mr. Burgess ���������    ]  "Tt is a most audacious thing,"  said the chief justice. "They are  arming' ��������� ������������������; themselves in advance to  meet an attack. They were getting  their artillery ready."        c-  Although Mr. Burgess' action has  been pending .in the Supreme Court  for eight years', following his refusal  to complete payment for the lots  purchased in 1.913.-the chief justice  stated he was satisfied the delay had  been satisfactory explained.  "It was not a, case,of waiting to see  which way the ��������� cat was going to  jump,"  he said.  Statements were made by the  company with the purpose of throwing Mr. Burgess off his guard, added  the chief justice.  For the company, Mr."J.'S. Mac-  Kay contended-Port Mann was not  only the terminus and seaport for the'  C. N. R>in 1912, but was so today.  There'were no C. N.'It. wharves or  terminus' in Vancouver, he said, and  and railway company had running  rights over the G. N. R.  ��������� "It"seemscto me, in view of the  statute- incorporating the railway,  Port Mann was never the terminus  nor intended to be the - terminus,"  said the chief justice. "Terminus  means more than a jumping off  place." '  "It is ridiculous' to think anyone  would pay $7,000 for a lot in a wilderness of stakes," he pointed out.  Mr. MacKay also argued that Mr.  Burgess was persuaded to invest in  Port, Mann property by his son, W.  H. Burgess, American attorney, who  had read an account of the lives of  Sir Donald Mann and Sir William  Mackenzie and had been much im-  by' their rise to affluence.

Answers in 1916 by Humphrey  Lome Johnson, managing director of  Pacific Properties, indicated he was  satisfied Port Mann was to have  been the C. N. R. terminus from  statements made by officials of the  railway company.  ' A- price list, he said, had been published by Messrs Davidson and Mca-  Rae Limited, general agents of the  railway, of Port Mann lots under the  heading "Canadian Northern Railway Pacific Coast Terminus." Davidson ��������� & .JVTacRae limited, he said, also  gave Pacific Properties a. letter assuring the latter Port Mann would  be the "freight terminus of the Canadian Northern Railway." . In the  late summer of 1913, he said, the  Winnipeg.office of Davidson & Mc-  Rae published' a pamphlet in which  they referred to Port Mann as the  "shipping port of the Canadian Northern Railway on the Pacific coast."

Indeed, it is'"cut., out!', .altogether by  many, just as soon as the traffic cop  is left behind.-. It should not be  so. The muffler has a distinct and  beneficial purpose and is worthy of  careful regard.   .  Without it there would be no  pleasure in riding and the pedestrian  ���������'. and dweller- by the roadside would  need, pads on their ears. Those who  can "remember* the,-day, before mufflers were required'on'cars' will bear  witness to the necessity.  This is why:* In the operation of  the engine the exhaust valve opens  while .the burned gas is yet under  pressure of twenty-five to thirty  pounds a square inch. --Let-indirectly  into the air it would "knock a hole in  it," and the report would* be deafening.. There would be ho talking in  the car or its vicinity. . The muffler provides a chamber, where' the  exhause gases .may expand- and likewise .'cool, thereby, . lessening the  pressure, and by; permitting tho  gases .to pass off "slowly through a  multiplicity of small passages the  exhaust reaches the air. quietly, in-  .stead of with a rush and a "big  noise."  Clogging, of the muffler ..and back  pressure of , unescaped gas prevent  the-cylinders,from being emptied of  burned gas. ��������� This' prevents drawing  in a full charge, of mixture on the intake stroke, the " explosion is weak  and power lessened. .It would he  possible to so clog the exhaust that  the throttle would be' useless; opening it would have no effect. Likewise in- starting the . first few explosions would choke the exhaust  there;' would be a sputter and tho  engine would stop because so little  mixture could enter,the cylinders.  The driver who uses kerosene in  the cylinders to get rid of carbon  will likely transfer it from cylinder  to muffler unless. he opens the cutout when running the engine to blow  out the kerosene "and carbon for the  mixture is nice and soft to plaster  over' the walls of the muffler, and  the heat will quickly bake it into a  nice enamel, covering-holes and  walls'.  While the muffler on-.most cars is  in a most convenient place to get at,  the driver should take it.off occasionally and clean it out, or expect  to eventually have trouble, and perhaps have it blown off.

This  development is made possible by  the proximity of Alauette lake to  Stave lake and the whole project is  termed the "Alauette-Stave Hydro-  Electric Power Development."  Alouette lake is' about half the  size of Stave lake and its northern  end is only about half a mile from  Stave lake and at an elevation about  140 feet higher.- The water rights on  the smaller lake were obtained some  years ago by tlie Burrard'Power Co.,  a subsidiary to the B. C. E. R. Co.  As soon as the provincial authorities' give their .consent it is proposed  to build a dam at the mouth of Alou-  ete lake, drive a tunnel 3900 feet  long, between it and Stave Lake and  develop 10,000 horse power at the  mouth of the tunnel, taking advantage of the difference in level between the two lakes.  The engineers estimate that this  plant could be in operation within  two years. For covenience in operation it is proposed to make this a  small plant and operate it practically 24 hours a day.  The additional water supply secured through the tunnel from Alauette lake will enable the company to  install a fifth unit at the Stave falls  pant, with a capacity of about 25,-  000 h. p. A pen-sock 20 feet in diameter, larger than any of the others, yet installed at Stave falls, is  being constructed, and will be placed  in the dam now under construction.  This work will he completed in September of this year, so that all will  be in readiness to release the water  into the new turbine when it is' set  up alongside the present Stave falls  plant.  The company's largest plant will  be established near Ruskin. A dam  will be constructed above the "red  bridge" and the water so stored will  be backed up to the present plant,  thus utilizing the entire fall between  Stave lake and tidal water in the two  plants at Stave Falls and Ruskin.  The Alouette lake water will be used  three times and the Stave lake water  twice.  The Ruskin plant will have a capacity of about 80,000 h. p. The development of power in the new plant  at the juncton of the Alouette tun-  el and Stave lake and in the fifth  unit at the falls, will according to  the engineer's estimate, take care  of the needs of the lower mainland  for a considerable period, but it Avas  announced that work must be started on the new plant at Ruskin at an  early date.  The present plant with four units  in operation has a capacity of 52,-  000 h. p. When the development  work outlined by Mr. Kidd is completed the total capacity of all the  Stave-Alouette plants will be 167,-  000 h. p. In addiion, the company  has two plants at Lake Buntzen and  a "stand-by" steam plant in Vancouver with a total capacity of 101,000,  so that the grand total of available  horse power in a few years will be  268,000 h. p.  Of civilized peoples the  Manxmen  are said to be the most superstitious.

Blackberry juice may  also be shipped to the Oriental market, directors of the company    said.  A meeting of the company's directors, with George Hay, president,  in the chair, was held recently. "Loganberry Jim" Fullerton, of Port  Townsend, Wash., a shareholder, attended the meeting in an advisory capacity.  Mr. F. West, superintendent of the  company's sampling plant at Dewdney, which last year' produced 500  gallons of fruit juice, said that, the  nlant, with additions, could manufacture 30,000 gallons' of loganberry  juice this year for Oriental markets,  if the contract is let, with a greater  quantity of blackberry juice.  6h..iiiiiiLmLyesterdayUn   -g r  Quantities of juice manufactured  would depend upon the ripe berries  available. A ton of fruit made 160  gallons of juice. Later, when production warranted the development,  a big plant would be built, at Hatzic  or in Vancouver, Mr. West said.  depend on favorable conditions of  tho materials market. ��������� Production  facilities for the manufacture of  closed bodies' are inadequate to  meet the demand, and this' is liken'  to prove a limiting factor.  A Wrench's a Rim for a' That  By an Interstate Commerce Commission decision, a wrench for fast-  .ening a demountable rim to a wheel  is to be classified as a rim, and  consequently receive the same  freight rate. The decision was  given in the suit of Chevrolet Motor  'Car Co. of California, against the  ^Michigan Central when the latter  wanted to charge more on wrencaes  than on rims. The court ruled that  one wrench could be shipped with  a rim at the same rate.
