The Abbotsford Post when it was  started in May ,1910, ^went carefully  into this matter and decided that Mr.  Abbott of the C. P. R. had no intention of having the town called aftter  him, but to be called after the historical town of Abbotsford in Scotland. While others in the meantime  have been disputing over the name  this paper has used only the one "t"  in Abbotsford. Now that the post  office department has decided to  change, this town will sure to be  on the map correctly.   '  New post office dating stamps  and. other equipment used in dat-  in a post office will arrive shortly.

Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,   NOVEMBER   3,   1922  The third session of the present  parliament started business at Victoria on Monday, last,, aiul may be  expected to be in session for. the, next  six weeks, provided Premier.' Oliver can stand the pressure .that long.  The Liberal government has ,the jirlv ���������  ilege of holding two more sessions  before it appeals to the people for-reelection. It is hoped the government  will give the people something this  session in the. way of legislation that.  will be'for the good of /the whole  province. )  The first session was \ devoted ,to  abuse of tho former govern men t.  ��������� Tula (Aveakenod; and the next session  was one grand battle of defense  against .the .Bowser builots���������many  taking effect.  What this paper would really like,  to see would.be a speech ofuPrem-hu'  Oliver-giving .In detail what he .has  done for the people of this' province  besides- raising- taxes; ' abusingr*i/uo  former Conservative government:  telling the people how poor and  hard-up.the.government was; borrowings/money for the P.G.E.; ami  constantly ��������� reminding the people  that he was "Honest' John Oliver,  Premier of British Columbia.  During the' 'past six    years    mauy  changes have .taken-place at Victoria,  ������������������?but .probably at the present time    no  - change.,w,o,uld be sp;welcome as    the  resignation of Premier   Oliver, . and  the .calling .in of Dr. McLean, as- pre-  ��������� mier of the , province; except of  qourse.-,the,.,ever*.welcome ��������� news that  Premier, Oliver -.was    going to iiamc-  ...'dlateryr.pia.ee :his, case.once more be-  - fore/thei.people-of this province. It  would;ib.e..-a iPQlitical   .landslide    that  .even the-Liberals of    the    province  .���������w.ould reJoi,nce; over.  The.record.,of the Oliver, government,- in Dewdney.   where    "Honest''  . .Jphn-.was .resurrected to .political life,  . does- not show" that he has accomplished.! much, for the    men who  .���������voted..for 'him. The .-promises that  have ..been .-broken    outnumber     the  ��������� good that -has been done to the com-  munity.,".by. having, done so noble   -^a  .deed. '/Space does, permit our recording the'misdeeds of the    Oliver gov-  . eminent, suffice it to say that from  ' one end of the riding, to   'the'   other  - there was such general, dissatisfaction with the representation of Premier- Oliver that .at. the .last election  a ;Conservative -.was .sent .to Victoria  to. speak,, for De.wdhey.  to notice the greatv change; in Parliament and'its authority as'the ������sover-  ign body representing the will of.-the  British .people--,. Before, ��������� , Lloyd  George,.-Parliament" was supreme-' bus  he .reversed the "role, dictated legislation and .acquired, more power aud  greater dominion, than any . Caesar,  ever had. The mere fact that, the  Legislation he dictated was " mostly  beneficial, does not change the fact  fch-u Lloyd George was establishing  a most dangerous precedent in attaching unlimited power to the office'of Premier. England has never  long, tolerated dictation from Kings,  or Premiers and her greatness, is  based upon this ��������� fact. England h\  England, and the fount of liberty,  because of her sturdy citizenship,  individual .intelligence .and instinct  for self government; curb these instincts and abilities with a dictatorship ever so bencfioient and  thoy wil soon die,as anything which  falls into disuse will die.  As Prime Minister, Lloyd George  wielded more power than any' ,mau  who ever held office before him; be  held more power than any. one man  should bo allowed (,o hold. He established a precent in this regard,  which if allowed to take root and  some*day fall into the hands of a  man of lesser calibre, would mean  the end of British self respect and  British greatness which had its  birth and lives today in the personal  responsibility of free and complete  citizenship.  And the. world needs the ancient  British tradition of man hood sui  frage and individual responsibility.  Rather than these should be-diminished by a jot or tittle it were better  'that ten thousand Lloyd Georges  should go by the'board, wth all' due  respect to his great name and 'deeds.  If he is ever allowed to return to office it should only ��������� be on . terms  whereby- he would lose much of his  former power and be ' forced to accept Parliament as his master, not  "his servant. For Parliament is the  concentrated virility of the British  people and will not, must not, be ignored.���������Farm  and -Home.  cash in advance business.

There.is an  accepted scientific formula I'or making these* calculations.

"Briefly," the board ascertains what  amount is-necessary to'set aside in  order,to comply with the law,, and  does not set aside an amount which  earning fi per cent, will be sufficient  to pay the pension awarded.

Oliver used to,.say-that the "roado  of -D.ewdney :were too good, too  much money- having ,'been spent on  them,", and that opinion appears to  still hold good for, for six years  they-have-been, sadly neglected.  'years ago, filled on'the inside with  what is known in the ,.business "as  "boiler plate" leaving only the "outside pages to be printed^ locally.  These latter pages were usually taken up with political and world news,  and probably contained a continued  story, while local news and items of  local interest had but,a scanty representation in one corner.  The change to-present day publications has been imperceptible but  steady, and today the best weeklies  of Canada are crammed with, local  news, in fact at times it is impossible  to find room for all that occurs locally."

If any man may be,  said to have won the -war against  Germany, that >man is Lloyd George  and he will undoubtedly go down in  , history as' the dynamic . force ..which  crushed the Teuton and saved .the  world.  Not only was .Lloyd George; great  in war; he was;.great in the peace  which preceded, the war and his  premiership since November of  1918 has been .indicative of ever  growing personality, power and  ability! It was Lloyd George who  raised the British labor, masses-from  the depths of Bolshevism.

Insurancevan'd reams.of further protective , legislation.  Lloyd -George's service has been to  no one class of the people; British  capital-has nothing to complaivi-  about; its possessions, its tvade and  commerce, its property of ail description have-been, preserved inviolate throughout the world. There  never was a British Premier who served his country more faithfully or  more efficiently. .  Then, considering all this, why has  Lloyd George fallen?    The answer is  ��������� simplyvtha't British  people are such  that they do not require a. dictator;  they merely-need������a leader.  The,Conservative Party of Great  Britain has only figuratively done-to.  .to .Lloyd .George.what Brutus did f>  Caesar. It was unthinkable that  the British people with their God-  given high average of intelligence  and,, thei.rXinsti.net., for self-government and personal liberty should  ever be allowed to degenerate into a  nation merely governed and not self-  governing.  Every  person  of discernment  ������Mi<-i  - has -watched <- the; ������������������- caFeep -of   Lloyd.  George since the war has been pained  a trust fii'hd, which the board is obliged to invest under the Trustee Act.,  viz., Dominion or Provincial Kf-unties or municipal bonds. These  bonds are always purchased in the  open market, after notice and the  securities offering the highest yield  are accepted in competitive bids.  "It may be pointed out "that , one  result of this'policy is, that.if tomorrow the act* were repealed;and "a new-  method were-adopted- -of...-handling  industrial' accident" victims there  would be enough money in the trrja  sury to'fulfill every obligation whif-h  the. board has to every injured workman, every widow,.-every orphan."

Prosecutions, including the  municipality of Fraser Mills, resulted in $2900 being collected.  Secret service work cost a considerable sum, $34,954 being expended1 to pay the salaries and ex-  ing the past few months and who  have been exceptionally active during thep ast few months and who  have redoubled their - efforts since  the charges levelled against the administration by Hon.

The total of liquor profits for the  board's' operations during the last  half-yearly period ending Sept. 30,  amounted  to  $1,075,000.  In filing the report late yesterday  afternon, Hon. Mr. Manson explained  that the municipalities, in addition  to securing their portion of the profits, were also in receipt of additional revenue by reason of court  fines and estreated bail which totalled  $100,000.  Fifty-two men went to jail for violation of tlie act during the past :;ix  months, as compared with 55 for the  preceding six months.  The minister announced that the  portion payable to hospitals will be  made payable directly by the government under amendments to be introduced shortly in view of the confusion in handling this share of the  profits, which was complained of by  mayors and councillors' at. the'receut  municipal convention.

STOOL   PIGEONS   CONDEMN TOD  VICTORIA, f Nov. 3.���������Criticism  of the government's liquor administration which, he claimed, far e\  ceeding the cost necessary, was made  in the House by Mr. R. H. Pooley.  Conservative member for Esquimau..  Money was being wasted on all  sides, he claimed. < The report Hind  by Hon. Mr. Manson showed that  $427,000 had been paid out in salaries alone. For secret service woi-k  approximately $75,000 per annum  was needed while for shortage, burglary, aud theft,'no less than $3-1,000  had been wiped off.  '-.,The employment of .stool .pigeons  was roundly condemned. The sending of men out into the country at $5  a day to try to induce people to  break the law was' a public scandal,  averred Mr. Pooley.  ���������Recalling a recent Victoria cast-.,  the Esquimau member claimed that,  it was not British justice for the  crown to take an appeal in order  that a subject may be sent down.  This season's marketing conditions  have been the logical outcome of tha.  growers confiding their business    to  "too- many cooks."    All the shipping  agencies, small and great, have been  supplied with fruit to sell    on trust.  There has been no    prevailing unity  amongst the shippers in regard    to  the- price they should sell the growers' fruit for:   Each one has tried to  get "out from under"  regardless of  the consequences to the rest, and consignment was resorted    to by all on  Ibis market, first    controlled by   the  shipper aud then uncontrolled.    This  condition placed the jobber in the position of having to sell    goods to secure a large turn-over. This they did  by meeting all cuts by their jobbers,  some real and some imaginary. They  could not lose, having    only    freight  and commission at stake.    The only  money "put up in the apple deal    is  the packing charges    and    overhead  by the shippers and the    freight    by  tin-, jobbers. Bankers were:little needed as sales .were made to the retailer  on a weekly credit    basis,    and    the  low prices    forced    distribution ._ at  fhst. only to be followed by stagnation, then lower    prices.      The job-  lie rs are not to blame for   the chaos  "that ���������consignment has brought about,  it is the inevitable    outcome of conditions forced upon them. ,  The responsibility for the unsta-  bility of the;condition we are,' now  facing lies with the growers "themselves. If they cannot unite to prevent it, they may as well prepare for  a repetition of this year's,, conditions.  A short crop may save them to some  extent, but'until they centralize and  disribute through one clearing house,  'they will not succeed. ���������'  The winter apple deal can be still  regulated by'the growers getting together.
