No one expected that the  Democrats would win although  it  was  a 'foregone conclusion at the.,  start that the Rpeubli'can' party waj  doomed to'sit in  the background  for the next four years.   But no one  thought that the Republicans would  voter/'T)emocz*at in order to defeat  the Progressives.    Anything, however to 'defeat the wing of'the Republican party.' ������.    ���������  The 'Democrats are happy of  course because they won. The Republicans are happy because tho  Pnogres'siveis were .defeated, and  the Progressives are still happier  because tlhey have shown that the'r  leader Was a stranger' man than  the candidate chosen for president  by "tihe Republicans at the-Chicago  convention. '  . It-is  a great thing- when all-arc  happy. ���������   ,.   .   '..,..  -Watch Abbotsford grow.  ������  Th/e^ Democrats .will probably reduce 'tihle high-tariff wall,'.a -thing  which the Liberals of Canada at  the last election' attempted to-, do  at tfhe expense of the Canadian peo  pie. Now the shoe .will be on the  other foot;       f "  The//'Dominion Houae meets iii a  few days and then all will have a  chance to see what the naval'policy .is like. It would be well for  all to rejad carefully that policy.in  order to he ,able to vote irifelligcni  ly at the forthcoming election sho'i'd  the^gevennment d'ecide to submit  their ipollicy to the people.  Several weeks ago ;we published  an artM'e in regard- to the aurvsy  of several block's in t'he town of  Abbotsford. It appears now thai  there are a number of pro.pertv  owners i(n the hlock who are per-  fectly satisfied with the present  survey. Although the same m not  quite correct it is possible to make  it satisfactory "to all by having; the  survey canfirm/ed.  What are you 'doing these days  to boost for the home frown?

The price was advanced  last  week  to 7o cents amfl is still  stiff, thowiing mo sign of a&atemenr.  One ranch reports that only l5doi-  on eggs were received during the  past week from 300 hens which is  falling off from the previous week,  and even at the present prices the  rancher is not making-a sufficient  profit owing to the expense of feed  ing. i   , -    .  Butter by the pound sold at in  and -15 cents with; a rebate of five  cents wholesale, although thwi-e wa.s  little offered at the latter rate.  Nearly all the gutter and p^cjs  on the market were sold", to local  consumers, the demand for eggs  far exceeding the supply.  The potato market was quiet,  buyers holding off. The piico,remained at $1-3 to $15' a ton, although in some instances thtf price  went as low as $11 a ton. ���������  The usual crowd gathered it the  poultry section and business mthis  icpartment   was  go,od, -the  price.���������<  .���������emaini/ng about the   same ' as   ]n-it  week.
