This was    quite  unintentional on his part.    Advertising was a new phase of business    to  him.    He called in    an    advertising  agency     who     told     him    that  the  p'ropcr thing to do was to give them'  the money and to spend it in the leading- daily papers.    No effort'whatever  was made to explain tho situation 'to  the-retail trade.    The result has been  tliat  the  reailers, were  placed  at  a  disadvantage as the public were riot  properly informed. ' They understood  that apples were-unusually plentiful  .this .year-and could be .bought cheap  So they can, but apples of line quality, such as leading grocers sell, cannot be bought'from the farmer at low  prices. Wlien'Vetailers'who give more  thought -to their reputation and the  value they give for the money were  asked to sell apples at about ������1   .a  barrel���������the price they were led. to expect from the advertising���������for which  they paid the wholesaler or farmer  $2 to $3, the consumer naturally believed; the retailer was'robbing him  THANKSGIVING DINNER r  AN ENJOYABLE AFFAIR ���������  Act was before the local legislature  Right "across Canada.in consequence  ore  J  i   , xx iu^'i ^.j. l hJasr  "353Z5ZZZ  ...

The more the  affairs of. the Dominion Trust Company are looked into  the more dis-  .gusting does-the    situation    appear,  particularly with respect to the lack  of protection for the depositors, who  .had entrusted no'less than $934,885  to the defunct company.  - It is easy  to.be wise and lock the stable door  after the horse is stolen, but the experience of last    year    undoubtedly  proves that it is impossible to  protect depositors unless securities of the  class required by the Trust Companies' Act, the required deposits to both  Dominion    and    Provincial  ments have been made, not in cash,  but in securities which cannot at the  moment   be  realized.

Published, Every IMday by The Post Publishing Company  A weekly Journal devoted to the interests .of Abbotsford and district  Advertlsiinc. rates  made known  on  application  Our   Shibboleth���������Neither   for   n������r   agin'   the   Government  FRIDAY,   NOVEMBER   27th,   1914  During these strenuous war times  one would almost suppose thaf;every  effort would be made to help our own  people in preference to those of a  foreign country. It seems a little unfair that at the present time a distributing house in Vancouver should  have its representative ,in the, State  of Washington purchasing the products of that state for distribution in  the City of Vancouver, when there is  ample In the Fraser Valley to supply  the'markets In the line of vegetables  of all kinds. The City of Vancouver has hardly finished begging of the  various municipalities of the Fraser  Valley for produce to feed her starving, in that community, yet whilst  plenty remains to be sold in Vancouver, a wholesale producer passes the  Valley by and imports from foreign  countries, onions or any other kind of  vegetable it seems rather a hard deal  on the Fraser Valley farmer. We say  if the vegetables of the Fraser Valley are good enough to feed the  starving, and the farmers generous  enough to give of- their abundance for  this purpose, then the man who buys  wholesale and distributes in the City  of Vanvouver should first seek the  produce in the Fraser Valley before  importing from Washington, California or even from Spain. It is not a  fair deal and this paper is of the opinion that the McBride government  should appoint one more commission  to investigate this matter of discrimination against the Fraser Valley farmer, and before he has entirely lost  heart in our fertile' district. He  knows for a fact that he can 'grow the  produce but with the present method  of marketing we might all say there  is nothing more rotten on the face  ' of, this, good old earth,' unless it be  'Kult'us'Kaiser Kultur*.  It. rests a lot -.with the men;who  purchase for the purpose of "selling to  the housewives in Vancouver,to-rem-  edy this complaint of unfairness, as  we believe.the people of Vancouver,  generally speaking would be patriotic  enough-to purchase Fraser Valley potatoes, onions, cabbages, etc., in preference to  froeign produce,  if such  were placed at their disposal, but the  good housewives cannot go out to the  farmers of the Valley and purchase  these things for themselves. The vegetables should be taken to their door.  We have every reason to believe that  at the present time there are enough  vegetables  in  the  Fraser Valley  to  feed the City of Vancouver and New  Westminster until    the    next    crop  comes in, and the Valley will never  come to its own  until such time as  preference is given to what the/Frase  Valley farmer grows; and only when  that is exhausted to import from foreign countries.'  \ - . ���������  ; It  is  a   serious  matter  that   the  produce of- the country should go to  waste during these strenuous war  times, when all should be striving to  make it easier for each other to live  and certainly a few million dollars  distributed among the farmers of the  Valley for produce would make a  heap of difference and.bring gladness  and rejoicing to the hearts of our  farming community. Good value  would be given for the money too.  What is the use of the cry in Vancouver of 'back to the soil' unless we  are to support these farmers when  we get them there.  The government should take this  matter in hand as in years to come  the government of this province will  have to depend more and more upon  the farmer for the taxes that will be  needed to build our trails, roads and  bridges. Instead of the Vancouver  people crying hard times these days,  and business houses going to the wall  there might be unbounded prosperity  in that city if everything was done to  allslst~'in the growth of the Fraser  Valley. This idea of buying at homo,.  cannot be worked to death very easily, and applies in a lot of ways to  more than the person who sends to  the catalogue houses for their goods.  The teachers in the senior grades  of the public schools and in our high  schools have an excellent opportunity  at the present time to instill into the  minds of their pupils a little about  the European nations, their customs  habits and their beliefs, to say nothing .about the excellent opportunity to  give a long numbers of lessons on the  cause and effect of the war, showing  what constitutes freedom of the people of our much boasted twentieth  century./Then there are the modern  inventions of warfare as compared  with former times. Many an interesting little story can be told'^the little tots, too, without in any way  building up any foundation of,race  hatred.  The war will be talked of for the  next generation, especially should it  last for a couple of years, it will be  one of the important topics of conversation for the boys and girls now  attending school for many years to  come. All grown people are taking  a Wvely interest in the war why  should not the younger folks know  too? >     -    ���������  The Victoria League has sent out a  phamphlet on the cause of the war  or why we are fighting. This League  proposes to distribute information, by  lectures, pamphlets and leaflets in the  way of simple statements about the  causes of the war.  The White Paper issued by the  government which contains some 150  documents should be in the hands of  every one, however the Victoria League have put-in readable form the  main points in the "diplomatic correspondence and in the speeches of the  Paper are given by the permission of  those in.authority, a, few explanations  added and some quotations supplied  form other official sources.  For the benefit of our readers we  publish a part of the phamphlet this  week and will continue until it is  finished. "Watch the weekly editions  for it.  .The day.of the Trust Companies in  B.

Shares  to the extent o'f very'many thousands  of dollars have been Invested by-people in the Fraser Valley, in the Trust  Companies���������the interest was so much  more than that, given by any bank.  The men who run the trust compjan-  ies were looked upon as god-sends  to the man who had a little idle money, to spend in investment, but, alas  they are probably much wiser and  better men now that some of them  have been well nipped. One representative of a certain trust company in  Vancouver used to visit this office  about twice a month at one time to  "explain" the immense advantages  of investing.in his company instead of  doing hard work. It did not work, but  the   agent  was   persistent.  For the man with a few hundred dollars to invest the best and  safest place is In one of our.chartered  banks, where while the interest  is not large the security is of the  best.���������notwithstanding the many com  plaints of some of the leading papers  in parts of Canada.

The present world wide  war-started from the case of Servia  but involved even ��������� from the start,  much larger issues. If only a dispute-between Servia- and - Austria-  Hungary had been in question, Britain, as Sir Edward Grey repeatedly  stated, would have had no "concern in  the affair. ,, B.ut;sin**ce, is we'.shall .see'  this dispute "was bound to" have 'ulterior consequences, .it. is necessary.to  understand; whatjtjiejdispute was' a-  bout. t -  The Case 61" Servia  Servia is a small but very ancient  kingdom in the Balkan peninsula. It  obtained considerable of the accession  of territory as the' result of the. recent wars in tlie -Balkans, the war  between the Balkan States and Turkey, and then a war among the Balkan States themselves. The Servian  people are akin, in������race and religion,  to the' Slavs, of which race' Russia is  the predominant power, and to which  race also many of" the subjects of  Austria-Hungary belong: On June  28, 1914, "xhe crime' of Serajevo"  was committed, namely,; the murder  of the heir-apparent to the throne of  Austria-Hungary and his consort in  the capital of Bosnia. That province  once a part of the ancient Servian  kingdom, had fallen into the possession of the Turks; the administration  of it had been given, to Austria,, by  the Berlin Treaty after the Russo-  Turkish war, in 1878; and in 1908  Austria had annexed it. The Austrian Government alleged (but has  not proved it)that the crime of Serajevo was a culminating point in a,  "subversive movement" organized by  the Servian Government ���������'with the  object of detaching^a part of the territories of Austria-Hungary from  the Monarchy." On'July 23 the Austrian Government addressed an ultimatum to Servia. Austria had been  "left a perfectly free hand" by Germany. It was admitted by Sir Edward Grey that "one naturally sympathized with many of the requirements of the ultimatum," and that  "the murder of the Archduke and  some of the circumstances respecting  Servia quoted in the. (Austrian) Note  aroused sympathy ;. with Austria."  Russia also admitted that "the demands were reasonable enough in  some cases." But: there' were two features in the Austrian ultimatum  which caused alarm and regret to  those who desired to see the peace of  Europe maintained. The first was  the inclusion of a time-limit, so short  (forty-eight hours) as to leave diplomacy little time to avert war. ' The  second was that what Austria demanded within forty-eight hours was not  a reply, but the" reply dictated by  Austria.    "I had never before seen,"  said Sir Edward Grey, "one State address to another independent State a  document of so formidable a character." The; German .Foreign Secretary  "admitted that the Servian Government could not swallow certain of the  Austro-Hungariari demands." Sir Edward Grey advised Ser.via to go to  the-farthest, possible point .'in meeting the demands, and, similar'advise  was given to her, by'. France and Russia. The Servian government replied  within the appointed time, conceding  the greater part of "the Austrian demands. The conceded demands  were of a very stringent character.  The Servian reply "involved" said Sir  Edward Grey, "the greatest humiliation that ho had ever seen a country  undergo." Nevertheless, Austria refused to accept the reply, and declared war against Servia (July 28). The  part of the Austrian demands which  S-ervia had feit ma'-Ie to concede-hei  very existence as an independent  State, and with regard to these matters-she offered to submit-them to the  Hague Tribunal. The fact that Austria, while receiving satisfaction ,; on  the other points,- had made the refusal of the latter points a casus belli  raised suspicions of her ultimate intentions. "The real question," said  the Russian Foreign Minister, "was  whether Austria "was to crush Servia  and to reduce her. to the status of a  vassal, or whether she was to leave  Servia a free and independent State."  The Larger Issues Involved .  It had been recognised from the  first that the case of Servia could not  be  isolated.       The  aggression  upon   -:  Servia by Austria (with the previous   ,  consent of Germany) "was bound to   :  involve other Powers.  The   German  government  did  in-   >  deed protest to Sir Edward Grey that  "the question  at issue was one for   ,  settlement .between Servia and'. Aus-   '���������  tria alone";     but    everybody    else :  knew that it: could (not be-so, and the .  German  Government, as '"' we    shall. *  presently see,  seem  to havev knownV  this also.    . The  relations  between .;���������  Austria and Rusia had already been  strained by the Austrian annexation -  of Bosnia and Herzegovina.    Aggres- .  sion by Austria upon Servia was certain to be regarded b yRussia with -  the  utmost  alarm   and  indignation. ���������  During the Balkan crisis the Russian '  Foreign Minister "had made It clear  to the Austrian Government that war  -with Russia must inevitably follow an  Austrian attack on Servia.    It    was  clear that Austrian domination of Ser  via was as intolerable for Russia as  the dependence of the.Netherlands on  Gerwany would be to Great Britain."  "It must be  obvious," said Sir Edward Grey in the House of Commons  (July 27), "to any person who'reflects upon the situation that the .moment the dispute ceases to be one be- .  tween Austria-Hungary    and Servia  arid becomes  one in which another  Great Power is involved, it can but  .end in the greatest catastrophe that  has ever befallen the Continent    of  (Continued on Page Three)  ^  Insurance  Insure your horses and cattle in  case of accident or death  Nice White   Plymouth Rock  Cockerals for breeding purposes.

The' Imperial and Royal Government sees itself compelled to demand  from tlie Royal Servian government  a formal assurance that it condemns  this dangerous propaganda against  the Monarchy; in .other words, the  Avhole series of tendencies, the ultimate aim of which is to detach from  the Monarchy territories belonging to  it; and that It undertakes to suppress  hy every means-this criminal and  terrorist propaganda.  In order -to give a formal character to this undertaking the Royal Servian government shall publish1 on the  front page of its Official Journal of  July 13 tho following declaration:  'The Royal Government of. Servia  condemns tho propaganda- directed a-  gainst Austria-Hungary, i. e., the general tendency of which.the final aim  is to detach from Austria-Hungarian���������  Monarchy territories belonging,to it,  ancl.it sincerely deplores the fatal  consequences of these criminal proceedings. The Royal Government regrets that Servian officers and functionaries participated in ' the , above-  mentioned propaganda, and thus'com  promised the good neighborly relations to which the Royal Government  was pledged by its' declaration ol  March '31, 1909.-' The Royal Government, which disproves and repudiates all idea- of interfering- or' attempting to" interfere with the destinies of the inhabitants of any-part  whatsoever of Austria-Hungary, considers-it its duty formally to warn  officers and functionaries, and the  whole population of the kingdom,  that'henceforth it will proceed With  the utmost rigor.against persons who  may.be guilty of such machinations,  which it will use' all its efforts to  anticipate and suppress.'  The Royal Servian' Government  further undertakes:'  1.

Somo,  of them have work on hand that will  keep their factories operating at full  capacity for many months.      Others  will have less' to do, but all of them,  will  benefit arid the1 whole country  will profit in a general sense. Since  August the contracts awarded by tho  Canadian government as,a result ot  the  war   have  amounted   to  fifteen '  millions of dollars.    These are apart  from the orders that have been placed  by  the British,   French  and  tho  Russian governments through. Canadian channels.  The largest item so far has been  clothing. ' Two hundred thousand  uniforms have been ordered. A similar number of boots are required, and  these are being obtained from thirty  factories,' The orders include two  hundred thousand suits of. underwear  three, hundred thousand pairs of,  socks, one hunred and fifty thousand  blankets, two hundred thousand.flannel shirts, and one hundred and fifty  thousand fatigue uniforms, two hundred thousand sweaters and one hundred thousand rubber sheets. The  British -government has ordered ten-  thousand sets of saddlery, averaging.  $40-a set; and three thousand five ,<  hundred sets of artillery harness, to  cost $80 net. The French "government has'asked for fifteen thousand  sets of saddlery'at $52 a set, three  hundred- and fifty thousand blankets  at $4 .apiece and thirty,. thousand  blankets at $3 each. .In additioirthe  Canadian government has made extensive purchases in food supplies,  tenting, Oliver equipment and numerous  incidentals.  The  Canadian government expenditure under present conditions will-  aggregate at least $25,000,000, and  if the number of recruits for foreign  service is increased the total will be  greater. ��������� This means an    enormous  stimulus to Canadian industry on a '  sound basis during" the winter, months  when business is inclined to lag. Industrially Canada was-in a    worse  condition before the .war began than  she is now.    The farmers particularly  the prairie wheat ' growers,    whose  crop was many million bushels less  than in 1913,  have benefitted, from .  the increased value of their.product.,  :  Just how .far this province bulks  in the contract list we are "unable to  say.    To  some  extent   orders'-have  been- given for supplies  and- equipment for the men now in training;  on this coast, but we would'impress  on our.manufacturers and trade bod;-  ies the necessity of keeping ^n .touch.
