A. BATES. Editor and Proprietor  Literary Society  ' Enjoys Meeting  4mmc.  yjiwri  FRIDAY,     NOVEMBER   17,   1.922  Stumps and speculation are two of  the deterrent influences that, have  prevented the settlement ��������� of the  Fraser Valley, so as to keep pace  with tho growth of the coast cities.  Both must be eliminated and good  roads built, so that, the Fraser Valley  can keep pace with tlie cities' growth  and prevent the importation of foods'  from foreign countries.  Of the'two ' deterrent influences  the stumps are probably the worst  the stumps cannot, long be expected  to remain on a. Fraser Valley ranch  filled with trees and stumps. The removing of stumps is as important to  the Fraser Valley as is irrigation to  the Okanagn. It certainly must be  very discouraging to the man who1 ur  dertakes to clear land by individual  effort, s He can grow old at; the job  and yet not have sufficient to protect  his old age let alone supply the demand of the increasing population of  the province.  Taxes are high in the Fraser Valley, but not high enough to build our  roads as they should be to make  country life tlie pleasure desired, yet  the taxes and upkeep of the roads  comes high on the man with the  stumps���������the man upon whom tho  Valley is depending to till the soil.  Growing for tlie market is an expensive proposition even after the initial cost of clearing the land , has  been met. That the burden is much  heavier thou the farmer on new land  can afford is instanced by the fact  that.but little new land is being clear  ed these days, in the Valley.  It is estimated that but one acre  in fifteen of the fertile land, in the  Valley is producing. 'Yet to undei-  take to clear some of our land is one  of the biggest jobs a man can  assume. Some big jobs are given government assistance, but not the clearing of land; and it is understood  that our Land Settlement Board does  not favor loaning money to the man  now on the land but is in favor ������f  helping the new settler. Why nor  help the man now on the land, who  who has had a little experience?  Would we not be further ahead?  Cheap money, cheap powder and  stump eliminating machines', with  good roads, would make the Fraser  Valley, the agricultural paradise it  was intended to be by nature.  The government that will map out  a course of this kind will be as Gumn  says',- 100 per cent, for the people,  thus a winner.  Growers, conceived-the idea to put up  all varieties of berries in small containers for' the bakery trade.  "An initial pack was put up and  placed in cold storage, ahd a short  time ago the frozen fruit was introduced to the- local bakery trade  through ' Grossman Bros. The success of the venture was instantaneous, as the bakers declared ' that  the fruit was just the same as fresh  and made the 'most delicious filling  for, pies and other pastry. The local  manager of the Northern Pacific dining car service was enthusiastic over  the first order delivered, and will  suggest that the fruit be used over  the entire system.  "All the fruits are solid pack and  are put up two in one. Two pounds  of berries to one of sugar. Loganberries, blackberries ,and raspberries are packed in five-gallon tins  and the strawberries in ten-gallon  kegs'. The tins weigh about 4 5 lbs.  and the kegs 90 pounds net. Blackberries are quoted at J 0 cents, loganberries 12 cents, raspberries' 10 cents  and strawberries  bakery trade."  15    cents,    to    the  MI 12 .102*2 SEASON  The season of 1922 has been very  disappointing to almost all those ��������� engaged in agricultural pursuits. Many  other lines of industry have had their  own troubles, especially those directly connected with the agricultural in-  'riustry. The signs of'the times point  to a considerable betterment for  next year. There will be much more  ready money circulating, especially  amongst prairie  farmers.  We have noted several things that  can be done to make the lots of the  farmer easier, especially the fruit  farmer. Several matters connected  with transportation need adjusting.  Many things' that can be absorbed by  his market and easy to grow in'B; C.  will be discussed during the winter  campaign. We welcome the new  Greenhouse Mens Organiaztion now  formed in Victoria, and we will endeavor to . form another such organization with headquarters in  Vancouver. Carlot shipments to  prairie points of greenhouse vegetables will be rolling in 1923 season.  We expect to lay plans for distribution,, etc., before-greenhouse men m  the  near.future.  Our ideal is to have all B.C.. producers united in one selling organization. If we succeed in this it will  The farmer party���������the Progres-*, be a record organization. Space forgives���������are now without a leader, I-Djcis a review of this season's fruit  Crerar having resigned both the, and vegetables���������we will deal in'de-  leadership and also .the seat in Mar-'tail with this subject in    our annual  Prospects for the balance of  queite. which he represented. This  is the beginning of the end of what  promised, to be the stormy petrel in  Canadian politics. Wonder what  pressure was' brought to bear on  Crerar, as the fact that .the Grain  Growers were not in favor of his retaining the position, seems but a poor  excuse. Last year when Crerrir  headed the party at the election the  G. G. did not raise any objection that  the public was aware of. Had h >,  been' successful in- having enough  following in the House of Commons  to form a government, would the  same G.G. have still had their objections?    We think not.  Politics make strange bedfellows  and 'one would not be surprised to  find'that this is the first step in the  disorganization of the party and t\:������  Liberals going to the country after  the next session of the House. With  the Progressive leader out. of the way  it is just, possible that a certain element in politics would t'eel that another election would return the Liberal .marty.  Class government in Ontario according to the present premier is  not a success, and without a strong  leader at Ottawa the Progressives  will probably go back to their first  love in politics. The trend of affairs  in politics would indicate that public  opinion is of the firm belief that two  parties in Canadian politics is distinct enough a division.  report  this season are bright.';  ' Apples are firming in price, and  winters in storage should sell at ' a  satisfactory price. Figures in our  hands from a reliable source indicate  that the amount of apples in storage  for winter supply is not more than  can be consumed at prairie points.  We consider that a proportion of  the'se should be stored in distributing  points in the prairies, so that in mild  weather they can be sent to near-by  points that are at present understocked.  We find that the three prairie provinces have an abundant supply of  potatoes, with no prospect of an eastern or United States market. B. C.  potato shippers in the dry belt will  find a market here for a limited  amount of select stock, apart from  that and perhaps some certified seed  potatoes, little need to be expected  from the prairie.  We have had several welcome  letters pointing out errors that have  inadvertently been made. In every  case corrections, have appeared when  needed. The object of the Bulletin  is to guide the'fruit growers in B. C.  in all that pertains to marketing  their fruit. We extend thanks to all  who have co-operaed with us to this  end.  A,full house greeted those taking  pari in the meeting of the Literary  and Debating Society on Nov. 8. The  evening was devoted mainly to Sir  /Walter Scott and' his works. Mr.  Dunbar gave an outline of the author's life. . Dunach school pupils  under Miss Carr gave a scene from  "Ivanhoe;",. Mt. Lehman-pupils under  Miss Ferguson and Miss Stafford con  tributed selections from "The Lady  of the Lake," and sang Scott's "Lullaby to an Infant'Chief." Mrs. Roy  Lehman and Miss' Kitty Taylor delighted all with vocal and instrumental numbers respectiely.' Mr. Farber,  spoke on the influences of the writer. An informal' dance closed a pleasant, evening.  A .debate on the- resolution tha.;  machinery has done more harm than  good is being prepared for the meeting on Nov. 22.  Miss' Agnes 'Macphail of Dcnnison  was the guest of , Mrs. Frank Baldwin, New Westminster, for a few  days.  The Hallowe'en season has been  an extended one thte.year. Dennison  High School was the first to celebrate, when' the girls entertained  their fellow students and friends on  the afternoon of October 27. Music,  readings and games, followed by, refreshments, gave pleasure to all.  Dunach school, with a somewhat Hint-  iliar programme, gave their concert.  and dance on Saturday night in the  municipal hall. The afternoon of  October 31 was the time chosen by  the Mt. Lehman school to present  their choruses and dialogues to a  pleased audience. Later, games  were played and the afternoon closed with Hallowe'en delicacies. Jubilee school held a concert and dance.  on Novemer 3 which was most enjoyable to all present. On Hallowe'en, witches, ghosts and the practical  joker held sway. -In most cases the  revellers gave pleasure, but in a few  instances they exceeded bounds..  The Y. P. S. heid their social  meeting on Friday, Oct. 27, in the  Memorial hall, which had been decorated with Hallowe'en colors and  symbols. After a brief business session the meeting was put into the  care of the ��������� social committee who  had arranged a delightful programme. Community singing, games and  contests filled up the time. The corii-  mittee, consisting of Mrs'. Gams-  by, the Misses , Macphail, Taylor,  Brown and McLean,*, and .Masters  Waiters and Oswald, rendered "jazz"  selections. Mrs. McDonald and Mrs.  Green, assisted,by willing friends,  served refreshments. ��������� It was announced that the meeting on November 11 would be given by the* missionary committee.  A splendid supply of fruit a.nd vegetables-was-generously given by tho  members and friends of the local  True Blue lodge for use in the True  Blue Home, New Westminster. Further donations have been promised-  Mr. S. Harvey looked after the shipping from \Mt.'

WEEK TN CALGARY  BERRY  BY-PRODUCTS  We submit the following iter*  from the Seattle Produce News, for  the serious consideration of the B. 0.  Berry Growers.  We have been working on the possibilities'of a market for frozen bei-  ries, either in the crates frozen as  they come from the field, or in gallon  tins. Several experiments have  tried in Washington and Ontario,  but nothing of a definite kind has  been started until Mr. F. Grossman,  of the North Pacific Berry Growers,  brought forth his ideas.  A new market is being developed  for the surplus fresh berries of Western Washington, which is fraught  with great possibilities for the ad-,  vancement and future prosperity or  the berry growing    industry in    this  district.  "For the past two years the surplus strawberries have been put up  and frozen in 400 lb. barrels, but it  was not until this' season that Frank  Pvoasrnan, sales manager for the  North    Pacific    Co-operative   Berry  The weather this    week has   been  ideal.  The wholesale fruit men held their  usual weekly meeting on Wednesdar  in the Board of Trade rooms'. It  was shown the apple market had  been brisk during the week when 3,-  200 to 3,400 boxes of apples had  been sold. It was also shown that,  country stocks were getting low, and  that a good country demand was expected soon.

MATSQUI  HAS FENCE   PROBLEM  MOUNT LEHMAN, Nov. 9.���������With  bad weather approaching, when  roadwork is difficult, and a depleted  exchequer prohibiting expenditure,  the November meeting of the Matsqui Council was of little importance  to the ratepayer.  Fatherly advice and small charitable donations, with the passing of  the usual accounts marked the business session, allowing the councillors  an  early adjournment.  Coun. Ware raised the question of  gates and fences' across public .road3,  instancing the Valley road at Clay-  burn, which was gated at the railway crossings. It was undesirable  for property owners to have gates  across travelled roads', although  these seem necessary until the roads  are fenced, or cattle will stray. The  solution will be found in road fences  and cattle guards.  Owners disputing over property  line fences are to have their problem settled by the properly appointed "fence-viewers," whose duty it is  to define these lines, and whose decision is final.  The danger of unlighted horse-  vehicles meeting autos after dark  was brought up by the recent Mt.  Lehman accident which just avoided  serious results. Under present laws,'  wagons and buggies are not compelled to cany lights', but a bylaw  could be passed to enforce the provision if the people thought it ; necessary.  Mr. Pihl, rural mail carrier, reported the danger to travellers caused by some Chinamen blasting near  the road and placing no warning  sign or person to safeguard the public. The "mail" had been showered  by rocks and dirt when passing. The  employer of tho Chinaman will be  notified  of  the danger.  The residents of Matsqui ."allowed  the true spirit of generosity when  notified of the..conditions of a family  near the dyke.

Premier Answers Mr.  Bowser's Charges  VICTORIA," Nov. 7.���������"I have  paid four bits many a time to see a  vaudeville show and have not seen  lalf as good a1'performance as we  aad here when the leader of the opposition made his speech," remarked  'remier Oliver recently in completing his' address on the address in reply to the speech from the throne.  The Legislature was not. the place  for public entertainment,, continued  the'Premier, and, considering the  time consumed by Mr. Bowser, his  speech had cost the people in ' the  neighborhood of $4 000. They might  well ask if it is worth it, he said.  The Premier declared that the opposition leader'committed an act of  treachery of a 'serious nature when  he had sent out telegrams Wednesday evening to the effect that the  member for Cranbrook had been deprived of his right to speak, the Premier taking advantage of a technical  point. .is;  In Mr. Bowsers absence, Mr. R. H.  Pooley and Mr. J., VV. Jones suggested that "treachery" was , hardly a  parliamentary word, whereupon Premier Oliver tendered an apology, but  said lie would leave it to the House  (o understand what was 'meant...  Dealing with, the question of finance, the government leader referred  to a question 'asked Mr. Bowser,  when he was' premier, by Mr. Brewster, then leader of the opposition.  The answer was that the estimated  deficit on March 31, 1917, would be  ������3,375.359. When asked how this  would be met, [continued the Premier, Mr. Bowser had replied that the  government was. considering the matter. He said such an answer should  discredit Mr. Bowser's criticism of  the present government's financial  policy, and he asked opposition members if they thought their leader was  playing fair with them.  Premier Oliver repeated his statement made at the Nelson convention  that the operation   of the    Civil Service Act had resulted in the transfer  of patronage from ministers of    the  crown to the Civil Service    Couimlsr  sion.    The result had not been satisfactory to the people; of the country,  nor to the    government    and    there  would have to be a change.  .   He' twitted    opposition    members  over their    former    prediction    that  loans placed in New York would ultimately cost the people 15 per cent  before .redemption.   l  With Canadian  money    at    a "premium    the govern  mient's' policy had been proven a wise  one.    ..__._ ���������"-   "���������-, ..'���������'.  '" The'Premier'did riot" "mindr listening to Mr: Bowser's "misstatements"  but he did not wish the people    who  did not know the /' opposition leader  to place credence in them.  '. Turning    to' P. G. E. Railway    affairs, the government leader read extracts from his'diary to show that in  January,  1920, representaties' of the  Vancouver and Victoria    Boards    of  Trade had urged the government,  to  complete the.line not    only to Prince  George but, to a junction with the E.  D. & B. C.    The delegation    included such men as President W. H. Mal-  kin of the Vancouver Board of Trade,  and J. L. Beck.worth of Victoria.  He told how, he' had heard Mr.  Bowser state from the platform at  Pouce Coupe that if his government  had not been defeated the line would  have been completed by this time. He  read from the' Sullivan report -to  show that at that time the efficiency  of labor was ata low ebb while materials were high.  He then-took up the statement of  Mr. Bowser that the Premier was  responsible for the wastage of $20,-  000,000-in the construction of the  P. G. E.  "But I find the total amount ' of  money paid out on all accounts since  we took it over and up to September  30 last was $18,902,186," the Premier went on, "and that included not  only the work on the Northern Construction Co., but payment of interest." ���������   .-��������� .  These other payments included in  the $18,9.02,186, the Premier detailed as $3,326,929 interest on debenture stock: $2,862,378 other interest  charges; totalling upward of $6,000,-  000 for interest alone; $1,394,650  for loss in operation and $1,271,503'  .for the purchase of rails.  "We have in these nearly $9,000,-  000 accounted for," he went on.  "This leaves not quite $9,000,000 expended in construction since the  government took it over and not the  $20,000,000 which the leader of the  opposition says."  A little breeze developed when the  Premier took up some of Hon. H. H.  Stevens' statement, repeated by W.  K. Esling, Conservative member for  Rpssland. He referred to one of  these to the effect that a reputable  firm had offered to complete the P.  G. E. for $6,000,000.  "I characterize that statement as  a figment of the imagination, without a shadow of foundation for it,  and I challenge the member for  Rossland and to produce anything in  substantiation in the construction of  the P.'-O. B. ,  Still another statement which ho  referred to was that in which it was  alleged that the liabilities of the P.  (j, E. when taken over by the government were less than $20,000,000.  The Premier read from the reports  that the liabilities on    February 22,  1918, when the line was taken over,  amounted to $24,240,011.47, and  there were further liabilities such as  $210,000 for land contracts for  rights-of-way and' $1,271,000 for  rails, all contracted for by the old  company.  Next was the criticism that the accounts of the Northern Construction  company had not been studied. Tlie  Premier said tliat as far as this Legislature was convinced it was interested in the accounts of the company  no further than they related to its  dealings with the P. G. E.  Next the Premier took up Mr.  Bowser's' criticism that the government was not encouraging the fruit  industry of the province because it  did not send B. C. fruit to London,  wither a former governmtnt sent it  and captured first prize.  He pointed out that when the present government took, office it .found  speculative companies had got hold  of fruit lands of the province, sold  these lands at big prices, separated  the ownership of the land from the  companies supplying them with  water, and which companies had put"  in cheap irrigation works. It , was  found that these irrigation works fell-  down just when the trees were coming to the bearing stage, and the  companies could not deliver the  water, with the result that loss faced  the fruit men.  "As the Premier of this province T  advise the Liquor Board that it was  not the wish of this government to  put stores in any place-in opposition  to the desires of the people," he added. "I ask if Mr. Bowser were returned to office if he would defy the  vote of the vast majority of tlie  people, defy the law put on the books  by the elected repesentalives of the  people, and go against his own oath  of office to carry out that law?  "It is all very well for a man with  a gift of satire and language to put  up a vaudeville entertainment here,  but this, House is for the transaction  of public business:  ..- "I want to tell my- friends, that.a.-  though I voted for prohibition there  is a -bottle of whisky in my house at  the present time and that when I  went on that rfamous' trip over the P.  G. E. not a drop of liquor passed my  lips."  Referring to the A. F. Proctor  case again, the/Premier asserted that  "when they say that the chief engineer was intoxicated they 'say what  is.not true." He referred to Mr;  Proctor as "a gifted man who had  mde a slip and has' paid ' an awful  penalty."  . It is pitiable to see the leader of  the opposition for the sake of a  laugh jump on a'; man when he is  down," the Premier went on.  Mr. Jones���������Oh, Mr. Proctor is  young yet. '  Premier Oliver (continuing) ��������� I  might go further and say that it is  almost contemptible.  Touching upon Mr. Bowser's reference to making brandy out of peaches in the okanagan Valley, Premier  Oliver said he thought the twist  given the matter by the opposition  leader was most contemptible. Still,  he would frankly say that so long  as the government was selling brandy-  he would approve the sale of brandy  made in this province.  His son's name being brought into  the matter annoyed "the government  leader. True his son had discussed  the use of surplus fruit but the truth  was that his son suggested making  acetic acid and combining it with  lead brought from the Trail smelter  to manufacture arsenate of lead for  fruit tree spray. - He explained that  last summer $23,000 worth of this  had been bought by the '' Okanagan  buyers.  At this juncture the Premier was  visibly moved and his voice quavered;  as. he asked:  "What was the quality of mind  and brain of,a man who will attempt  to hold up another to ridicule when  he is doing his best to serve the  people?".  Hon. Mr. Oliver next reviewed the  hearing of the charges against Dr. A.  R. Baker and referred to Mr. Pooley's remarks about him. However,  he explained, Magistrate Shaw was  an appointee of Mr. Bowser's government, and It ill behoved the Esquimau, member-to refer to him as a "lap-  dog."  Premier Oliver criticized Mr. Pooley for not appearing in court in Vancouver to give evidence before the  royal commission until a "blue  paper", forced'him-there. The member for Esquimau, was charging that  the cost of the enquiry, which tho  Premier said was $6,112.44' might  have been saved if the Legislature  itself had disposed of the matter.  However, the necessary witnesses  were not available while the House  was sitting, it was explained, and it  was much .better to have a. commission than to keep the House in session'for an indefinite time.  The government leader said that  Mr. Pooley had not shown very good  citizenship by refusing to appear before the. commission until forced.  The latter interjected that he had  made his intention not to do so clear  before the Legislature prorogued and  he added that "We at least saved  the beaver." -  "Hear, hear!" came from the mem  be,r for Fort George.  "I have heard of people who came  into the world to save it, but it neod?  a lot of saving   yet,''    returned   tho  'Mt Lehman News  Mrs. Middleton of Mission City  was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. TV h.  Lehman for some days. While here  Mrs. Middleton was busy renewing  old  friendships.  ' Messrs. M. and D. McAskill entertained a house party of Vancouver,  friends during- the- Thanksgiving  holidays. The guests were the Misses Fraser, ^McDonald, Macaulay and  Mackay, and Messrs1. Fraser, Ferguson and D. A. McAskill.  The West Matsqui Co-operative  need more room for feed storage so  they have plans made for the erection of another building'adjacent to  their present store. Mr. S. Nicholson  is in charge of the work.  Large congregations' attended the  Thanksgiving services - held in the  Presbyterian Church on Sunday, Nov.  5. The church was beautifully decorated ' with flowers, fruit, vegb  tables and grain by Mrs. Forrester,  Mrs. McDonald and the Misses Gillis,  Lewis,' Bates and McDonald, with  assistance from Mr. D. Nicholson and  D. Oswald. During the morning offertory the Girls' choir sang "Who  Givest All." The gifts of fruit, etc.,  were sent to the Presrbyterian Girls'-  Homo, Vancouver, where they were  greatly appreciated.  At the regular meeting of the Mt.  Lehman Women's Institute, held on  November 8, further arrangements  for the'concert and dance to be given  on Dec. 1 were made. In order to  form a library for the Institute it  was decided ,that each member contribute a book/ A "resolution voicing disapproval of W. I.'s affiliating  with or having representation on tho  directorates' of other societies was  passed. It was' decided to become  more fully acquainted with.-parlia-  mentary procedure by studying the  rules laid down by the Department of  Agriculture. Mrs. J. D. Fearn gave  an interesting paper on "Labor Saving Devices for ,the Home." Mrs.  Bates, Mrs. Athole Lehman and Miss-  Edna Bates were hostesses. A welcome visitor was Mrs. Middleton of  Mission City. In all probability Mrs.  Middleton will show her large collection of useful and fancy articles,  made from flour and sugar sacks, at  the December,meeting.  GOVERNMENT HAD  MAJORITY OF  12  VICTORIA, B. C.J. Nov. 11.���������An  amendment offered by Mr. Catherwood, Conservative, Dewdney, dur-  ing'his address in the debate on the  Speech from the-8hrone, resulted in  the legislature sitting until.two o-'  clock Thursday morning. The amendment expressed regret over "the inefficiency of the Land Settlement  Board." After a heated debate the  government was sustained on  division. The government majority  was  twelve.-  Mr. J. A. Catherwood, Conservative, Dewdney, spoke briefly congratulating the ministers concerned on  the consolidation of tho statutes and  tshe Sumas reclamation scheme, but  regretted no mention had been made  of'the necessary protection work on  Nicomen   Island.  Liquor act amendments, he said,  did not come any too soon, and he  criticized the goernment for not  holding an election to fill the vacant  seat in Vancouver.  Mr. Catherwood took up the. question of amendments to the game  act, asking that farmers' be given  permission to-shoot pheasants destroying crops and to trap muskratd  damaging drains.or crops.  The dyking act was also touched  upon, Mr. Catherwood claiming that  the acts should be consolidated and  all dyking schemes brought under  the new act. The mothers' pension  act and workmen's compensation a^t  came in for commendation, but Mr.  Catherwood thought that there  should be more sympathetic understanding in the administration of  these acts.  Miss Florence   Parton has returned to Cedro Wooley, Wash.  Rev. Mr. Condgen of the Federated Church of the City of Sumas, will  conduct tlie services in the Presbyterian Church on Sunday evening.  Rev. W. .Robertson will preach in  Mr. Congdon's Church in Sumas.  Premier.  He then dismissed Mr. Bowser's  speech by saying.that he could not  find one constructive suggestion in  it. Nothing had been offered by the  leader of the opposition that would  help solve the University problem or  show a way out with regard to    the  P. G. E. *  "Nothing but the misstatement  that we wasted $20,000,000!" he exclaimed, and then asked what Mr.  Bowser had to say about the schools  ���������nothing but that retrogression had  set in. Still, he continued Mr. Bowser's government ' had; established  the present school system.  In concluding Premier Oliver said:  "I stand on the judgment of both  sides of the House and the judgment  of the people. The government is  entitled to the best advice of every  members, and those members who do  not* strive to improve conditions  through their assistance are not true  representatives of the people."

Mission  entertained   Chilliwack  In  football  and     basketball     yesterday,  with  Mission  winning in  the former  by 2  to  1, while -< the    basket    ball  games have not been    played    at,the  time of going to press.  The football game was slow in got-  ting stated, the referee being unabl.j  to appear, which necessitated the end  of. the game being played in very  poor light. Chilliwack was first to  score when they rushed the goal in  earnest; Plumridge made a nice save  but on the rebound the ball was p!������.'.o  ed well out of his reach. , Mission  evened up soon "after when Dave Gal-  liford rushed tho goalie after a long  shot, with the result that the latt3i>  missed it altogether.  Play was resumed at helf time  without any interval as darkueca  was settling already. Chilliwack  took the offensive at first, but Mission soon found themselves' and  Hamilton' put, the home'team one up  when he beat the backs in a sprint  and placed the ball in the corner'of  the goal. This, concluded the scoring and it was just a matter of getting the game over as it was getting  too dark for good foqball.  Line up���������Plumridge, J. GalHford,  Appleby, Beaton, C. Galliford, Fu-  zino, Lock, Cox, Hamilton, D. Gal  liford  and  Northcote.-  On Thursday afternoon friends  and parents had the pleasure of visiting the new school and viewing the  same. Many pleasing and complimentary remarks were made as to the  wonderful improvement made in the  school building and the -conveniences  installed especially in regard to the  heating plant.  HUNTINGDON,     Nov.     11.���������The  conference report of Mrsv-F. Thompson occupied most of    the    business  session  of the Sumas  Women's    Institute on Thursday.      The  meeting  was held at the    home of the    president, Mrs. Simonds, at    Huntingdon.  There  were present Mrs'.  E.  Austin,  Mrs.   L.  Curtis,     Mrs.  A.  W.   tfinlav,-  Mrs. E. F.  Lunn. Mrs F. B.  Fadde'ii  Mrs   McGarva,   Mrs   F.     Thompson,  Mrs.   Thompson,     Miss     Lunn    and  hostess.    A detailed    discussion    of.  the report brought out    nianv problems' of interest, the chief    being the  gradual spread of    Orientals in    the  country.    The delegates had received  instructions  from  the  convention  to  recommend  the passing    of    resolu  tions urging the Hon., Charles' Stewart to bring up measures' for prohibiting the    further    immigration    of  Orientals.     Individual   members   (of  whom  there are now about* 36^000)  were requested to bombard the    authorities with private letters, also.  Convinced that it would be far  better sanitarily and otherwise for  the junior scholars to'have a pr6per  room of their own, instead r.r ������.qfr-"  the Municipal hall for a school, as  at present, the meeting passed a re.-,-"  olution urging the School Board to  build a new addition to the Whatcom  Road school.,  Congratulatory letters to two  members were ordered on motion bv  the ladies, one to Mrs. Winifred Pad-  den on the arrival of a son, and one  to Mrs. J. Miller on the birth of a  daughter.  Mr. and Mrs. S. M. Green of Williams Lake spent the w- > id u-i  the guests of Mrs. M. M. Shore.  Miss Florence McPhee w.r> hm  been ill in the M.-S.-A. Hospital is  progressing- favorably.  ������������������7  i   I  am^w^wtmmetdmamiftmMmimsg
