FINE SHOWING' OF ROOTS  AT XHJH AmJOTSKORU.I''AIR  The'annual exhibition of the Ab-  botsford-Sumas Agricultural Association took place on Tuesday and in  spite of the inclemency of the weather the attendance was excellent, and  the exhibits were much better than  last year.  Mr. 11. W. Ankatall Jones, . who  judged tho fruit and" field produce  said that the roots shown were the  finest that, ho had seen at any exhibition this year, not excepting New  ���������Westminster.  Mr. Ii* li. Stacey. M. P., opened the  Pair ancl spoke on the'three reasons  why the farmers should support the  district Pair. The first and all-important reason ' was' the" educational  value of such exhibitions. He made  mention of the way Dr. Knight  judged at-Agassi/, taking a few minutes after'awarding a prize to explain the reason for his judgment.  This enhanced the .value of. the  judge's work and Mr. Stacey strongly advocated that it should be made  a general practice. The other reasons  were publicity and prize money.  An interest exhibit which took  first prize in its class, was shown by  Mrs| W. I-I. Fadden, of Sumas. In  this exhibit weres hown practically  everything, cooked ' and uncooked,  that could be produced on a farm."  There was a'bewildering assortment  of fruit, cakes, soap roast lamb, vegetables, pork and beans, butter, wool  : nd   milk.  .The bread shown was of high order, while Mrs. Fadden also had  bread made from flour milled from  wheat grown, on the farm. There  was also, a' par of shredded wheat  for mush. There was a line sample  of white, fleecy wool, ancl samples  of home-made soap.  Mr. Chevallcy- of South Sumas,  udged the dairy produce, which was  worthy of the district, although not  a large exhibit. There was a good  exhibit of home "cooking and canned  fruit and vegetables.  The showing of stock was not  what it might have bee'n under-more  favorable conditions and the entries  were also small in the poultry classes for the same reason. Had not  new buildings been erected there  could not have been any showing of  horses and cattle, but that saved the  day.  Mr. J-. Downie, Abb'ots'ford's blind  hero,' late of the 2nd CM. R., had  a line exhibit of network which was  much admired and was one of the  features  of   the   exhibition.  Taken altogether the fair was an  excellent, exhibition of what can be  grown in this district, the vegetables  looking just :ik good as was shown  anywhere in lb-' province, and considerably better than some. In this  no fall I'air I hat wo visited this year  excelled the field produce shown in  Abbotsford. and if was our pleasure  to  visit,  besides   Lhe  local   fairs,  the  one hold in Vancouver, Victoria and  New Westminster, and had tho weather been fine and the entries.all filled Abbotsford would have shown the  judge something more to praise;" au'd'  it is understood his praises for the  little exhibit were .not'stinted.  All departments were represented ancl were all a success.  ' Some of the exhibits sure deserve  special mention, showing that while  the exhibitors were' preparing they  were doing the Abbofst'ord-Sumas  fair a groat service, so much care  had been taken to make a good showing, and in the general'display Mrs.  W\ II. Pad den ancl Mr. Phil Jackman  deserve great praise for the remuneration financially could not cover such  an excellent display as" either of  the exhibits. l' With more such enthusiasts the Abbotsford-Sumas will  in future eclipse anything else in the  valley.

It is an enormous task today for manufacturers of.  telephone equipment to maintain an adequate output.

In the meantime, Central is supplying service with the means at her disposal. She is working harder  than ever, realizing that the telephone is a great factor in  social and business life, To her belongs tlie credit of assuming greater burdens because of shortage of equipment.

BRITISH COLUMBIA TELEPHONE C&.  3Ioro Delusions Gone���������  ��������� We will always hold a certain amount of enmity to Premier  Oliver in the future, for this meeting on Friday night, says the  Standard-Sentinel, he wrecked a couple of our pet delusions. We  have frequently heard Mr. Bowser, both in public and in private,  speak very highly of "Honest John's" ability and honesty. Now  the premier, in a half-hour tirade of.Mr Bowser, asserts latter  cannot tell the truth even on oath. We had a high ophiion of  Mr. Bowser and, believing him, a good opinion of Mr. Oliver, but  if the latter is correct in stating that Mr. Bowser cannot tell the  truth, we thus 'lose faith in Mr. B. and therefore will be forced to  believe he was lying when he frequently'stated that'Mr. 0. had  ability and was honest.  No man should have the power to wreck one's faith in the  leaders in this province; neither should any leader believe it  good policy to abuse an opponent, especially when he'himself  believes he is entitled to the support of the public because of  claims to have accomplished all the'good that has ever been done  in this great province of ours.  were in the running. There will be others of course. It is very  likely that the public will get a taste ot' some inside workings of  the affairs at Victoria since the election of 191G when these two  former friends get at each other. "  MAW  COMPLAINTS AltOUT  TJ1E   YALE   110 AD  Apropos of the discussion of the  everprcsent road' problem by the  Langley council at a recent meeting  the condition of the Yale road is giving rise to many complaints. ' Tho  rain has completed the damage done  to many of the roads in the municipality through heavy motor traffic,  and the road from Lagnley Prairie  to Murrayville is a succession of holes  The road in question was formerly  the pride of the province.        There  T  hi) Vremier's Speed���������  Premier Oliver told his audience on Friday night how he  was too fast for Mr. Bowser; how he had left Victoria "four days  behind Mr. B. on a trip through the Peace-'River country and  ber.l Mr. J3. by four days on the return lap. Mr. Oliver failed  to tell that it was after a joint meeting with the leader of the opposition that he gained the speed. It is claimed that a pursued  man can run faster than one who fears not.  Speaking.of speed, the Mission City Record says .that the  premier took over two months to reach his constituency, after  the floods of the past summer, to find out the people's need in  their hour of trial.���������Kamloops Standard-Sentinel.  Liberal Paper Sizes up Situation���������  in the course of a speech, notable for its absolute frankness,  Hon. John Oliver, Premier of the province, told the people of  Kamlops yesterday thatt here was little chance, of the trans-  provincial highway project being undertaken by the government  at present. lie would not commit himself definitely when asked  to state when the government would be in a position to get  v. ork on the proposed road started. The province was greatly in  debt���������a burden imposed upon the people by the late government  --and until (hat debt had been greatly decreased the government  v. as noi. prepared to countenance proposals for further exhorbit-  nut expenditure.  The Premier's announcement was undoubtedy very unpleasant news for the people of this district, who have' long  cherished the hope of the through highway to the coast, from  which they would derive immeasurable benefits. The fact, however, that he did not promise what he does not intend to do is  worthy of note, if it is the desire of the majority of the people  to extricate the province from the present financial predicament  it is in, the stand of the chief executive head will be unhesitat  Would Be Some Busy Orator���������  Let us picture a meeting in Mission City during the next  porvincial campaign���������a Conservative meeting of the Billy Bowser candidate, and John Oliver allowed thirty minutes to speak  Maxwell Smith and the other candidates present, of course. He  .vvoulcl be expected to spend the thirty minutes as follows: Seven  minutes to roast "Friend" Bates, as the job was not completed at  the last visit; seven and a half minutes to tell how with the aid  of his trusty little Ford he beat Maxwell Smith to it at the'last  -��������� ���������--- ��������������������������� -       ���������  provincial, election and how he had tried to make good to him|has beeu au almos<- constant stream  afterwards, but on tlie Land Settlement Board Mr. Smith had of heavv trucks and a,,tnmnh-,ft ���������ss-  too modern ideas, thus he was fired; five minutes on other opposition candidates;  two minutes on telling how truthful Mr.  Bowser is and what would have happened to the province if the  elections of 1916' had not brought the Liberals along as the  guardian angels of B. C;  two minutes on the misdeds  (?)  of  the Oliver government;  half a minute n why the ferry' rates  we're inaugurated on the Mi'ssion-Matsqui ferry; half a minute  on what.he will do for Dewdney if elected; half a minute on why  fne present Prohibition Act was not enforced;   half a minute  on what he has done for Dewdney riding since 1916;   half a  minute on telling what he will.mo in regard to Nicomen Island  dyke and why 'it took him two months to come to their aid  after the recent floods and four minutes on the P. G. E.  That will be some seech!  AFTER  MANY  DAYS  It is an axiom of theoretical mech-  ancis that every force must produce  its.full effect. It. is perhaps not demonstrable.either by a priori reasoning or along empirical lines that the  same principle holds true in politics  but sometimes things happen that  seem to point that way. Truth, and  candidates, crushed to earth rise a-  gain after everybody lias pretty well  forgotten the circumstances attending the original depression.  Some four years ago two gentle-;  men were freely spoken of as possible   Liberal   candidates   for   Dewd-  in any event it has never been denied  In Lhe sequel, the other expectant  g3iitleman, he who awaited the news  at a distance from the convention,  did not' allow his disappointment to  deter him from working for the re-  of heavy trucks and automobile passing over this portion of the road  since the spring.  The habit of putting small round,  stones on the Yale "road���������stones a-,  bout the size of good sized marbles'  has made that road from Abotsford  to Murrayville the terror of all auto-  sts. The same money spent on the  Yale road in putting on proper gravel  would have during the past four  years have made it a pretty decent  road, but the men who appear to be  at the head of this work on this road  do not know the first principles of  roadmaking.

Yet such is an undisput-  "abl'e fact. They are banded together if not for a common purpose, then  at ���������"least with a common object in  view. . Ever since the bootlegger was  first incubated in 191G the ��������� illicit  trafficking in liquor has been carried  on in this province to such an alarming extent and with such conspicuous  success that today we are forced to  confess that the machinations of the  bootlegging fraternity are as grout a  marvel of ingenuity a*s they undoubtedly are an everlasting disgrace to  this country. ��������� And in the year of  grace 1020 with a full knowledge 91''  those odious facts, the prohibtionists  stand ready to increase the sphere of  operation of the bootlegger 'in this  province! For it is a fact of paramount importance that every vote  cast hi favor of so-oalled pr'ohibition  next month, will be, in effect, an af-  . tempt, to place the seal of public up-  proval on. the nefarious practices of  the boot-legger fraternity. We -feel  that we should be guilty of-wilfully  misleading our readers on this point  were we to"present the matter in any  other  light.  It is an enigma to us why the  prohibitionists and niodorationists  are not joining forces on this occasion since both are advocates of  temperance. Ancl .this apparent  breach is sure to very seriously prejudice the cause of true temeprance  in the eyes-of the people.  When the matter wa.s before the  people in 1916 it will be remembered that the Prohibition party of that  day glorified in the calibre of the  men whose names they so freely used  on that occasion for propaganda purposes. Where do we find those same  influential names today? They are  to be found directly identified with  the cause of moderation. Their one  desire like many others at that time  was to secure the abolition of the  open bar but they did not endeavor  then nor do they intend now to infringe upon the personal rights and  liberty of the subject. Like all good  moderationists they believe in temperance and moderation in all things.  They know, and all history bears witness to the fact, that where a noral  issue is involved no cocrcivo act of  parliament oan ever take the place  or accomplish the purpose of moral  suasion.

KNOCIv.NG  DOWN, IS NOT THEFT  .So .Says Mr. Justice Hunter Dismissing' Case Against O. P. 11. Conductor Accused of Practice  An application in tlie nature of  certiorari was made on Monday in  chambers asking the court to 'review  the' conviction of Joseph Jackson, a  0. I*. U. conductor, for theft in Nelson early in the. year. ,  E. P. Davis, K. C, stated that the  evidence showed that a Thiol detec-  (ive had paid $3.75 to allow him to  travel without a ticket from Gran-  brook to Kootenay Landing. Mr. Davis argued that as the C. P. R. accused- him of theft, it .would have to  show conclusively that the $3.75 was  its property. ��������� lie pointed out that  when the conductor, took the money  he was not collecting a fare, but a  bribe,  for not collecting a fare.  "This money was not paid for  transportation, but to avoid paying  transportation, "argued he; "It could  not be considered as money paid on  account of the fare either," said he.  "Supposing the conductor had been  handed a pig or a revolver it'could  hardly be contended that he was receiving it for the C. P. R."  "In other words," remarked Chief  Justice Hunter, "he did not receive  the money for the company, but for  swindling the company."  "Quite "so" replied counsel, "and  as the money was never the property  of,tlie company or intended for the  company, but for the conductor personally, the act could hot constitute  theft from the company."-  "The offence, ir any, was that the  conductor accepted a bribe to neglect  his duty, which was to collect the  fare," he continued, "which is an entirely'different offence from the one  lie  has   bs.en  convicted  of."  M. A. Macdonald, K. C, who appeared with Mr. Davis- took up the  question of the magistrate's jurisdiction. He pointed out that the information did not say'that either Cran-  brook or Kootenay Landing were in  the County of Kootenay iii which  the magistrate had jurisdiction.

A  number of Freemasons    from    New  ���������Zealand are  forming a    co-oprative  j settlement on the- north end of Lake  iNyasa.  500 Acres for Each Settler  Tobacco, rice, cotton and tropical  fruits will be. grown on . the 'lower  leels; tea, coffee, and sub-tropical  fruits on the slightly higher levels,  the highest levels being reserved for  wheat and' other cereals and cattle  grazing. It is propoed that every settler should acquire 5000 acres- or  more of plantation land, the freehold  of which, it is anticipated, will cost  under  25   cents  an  acre.  The settlement is to be governed  Masonically, none but Freemasons  are to be admitted, and it will be run  on co-operative principals. ' The  scheme will be under- the^ .general  supervision of Captain Willis- .

Mr. Crehan of MowaL & Co., C. A.  Lhe municpial auditor of Maple Ridge  addressed   the   council   on   Saturday  last on their financial standing and  municipal matters generally and particularly on the incidence of taxation  in   an   illuminating  speech.   He   told  the  council  that their receipts     had  not come in so well as last year and  as against $37,0.00 for current taxes  and   $13,000 arrears last    year    for  nine months- this year they had $20,-  097 current taxes and $9,000 arrears  Their  total  expenditure  on   roads,  etc. 'for   nine   months   this  year,   including equipment, was approximately $18,000. Last year for  12  months  it was $20,000.  Although he presumed their spending season was pretty  well   over   he  exhorted   them   Lo   be  careful.    They   must   keep   in   mind  that if they exceeded their estimaL.es  and sufficienL taxation did not come  I in they were individually responsible  I Administration expenses had increas-  I ed,  as    they  were    bound     to     do,  I through   higher   cost   of   everything,  and as theyJiad done in every other  municipality.  I . The other expenses compared fa-  'vorably. The work in the municipal  hall was done in very good shape  and very satisfactory indeed to his  nnn���������the municipal auditors. They  had to congratulate Mr. McFarlane  'their clerk and his assistant Mr. J.  ! Anderson on the very'intelligent man  ncr in which the accounts had been  kept. Referring Lo Lhe reeves going  Lo Lhe con veil Lion of B. C. M. aL Nelson, Mr. Creehan touched upon the  .questions likely to be discussed there  Taxation was one. The present system of municipal LaxaLion, he said,  penalized the land owners, who paid  nearly everything for municipal government. , Sooner or later that must  be rectified and a more equitable dis-  Libutiou of taxation devised. He Illustrated the heavy burden looming  up fo the already heavily burdened  legitimate faxpaying citizen by the  large quantify of delinquent land reverting to municipalities and becoming non-reveiuie  producing.

Until   they   got     a  more equitable system    he    favored  somet oil  system  by everyone using  their roads with motor vehicles- who  was not a taxpayer in the municipal-  ,ity,  these  should  pay something to-  i wards   their   upkeep.

That bill should have  been in their hands months ago to  enable them to digest it thoroughly  before an intelligent discussion could  ensue. He was neutral in regard to  it. It might be all right for municipalities with bonded indebtedness,  but it was no good to those which  had none and only added to the burden of a new department at Victoria.  The principal question in this municipality are schools aud roads. How  could they meet the increasing demands for these without issuing debentures if they wished to bring  them to what they should be?  ���������Mr. Crehan advocated a straight  levy. To borrow $100,000 for instance for 20 years mount practically paying double by the time it was  paid up. Personally he was in favor  of taxing everybody in Lhe country  according to capacity, lie inveghed  strongly against the false returns of  income tax which robbed the honest  taxpayer ancl justified their being  sent to a Trator or Leper Island.

Fifteen  tables of whist, were played. Miss  Mabel Nelson and Mr. McDanicIs won  the first prizes- and Mrs. Macguire  and Mr. Ackland received the consolation prizes.  An election appears to be in the  air, but. what is Abbotsford getting  for nothing these days. Oyer in Mission they appear to be getting all  kinds of crushed rock on the main  street. Our board of trade should  get something for the town just before an election, even if it is only  a load of gravel or a new plank in  the sidewalk.  John  Barleycorn   wants  limited sale���������not '"control"  trol?"      /'It's   to  laugh."  Sale-  ���������un-  Con-  Nelson, Oct. G.���������Although the  fourth annual Good Roads League  convention was brought tea close today at. noon, the wire from Victoria  stating that Hon. John Oliver had  told the Kamloops Boad of Trade  that the transprovincial highway had  been shelved and indefinitely deferred, was still the topic of the hour  among groups of delegates, many cf  whom are remaining in the city to  attend the convention of the U. of  B. O. Municipalities.  Tlie receipt of the news last evening was a bombshell to the convention which had Dr. King's unchanged  views favoring tho highway for more  than a year. The general trend of  almost, all the resolutions had urged  the government to work upon the  links of the highway. Instant and  de/inite action was demanded to prevent such a contingency, which was  described as "little short of legalized  thievery."  Mayor Gale said if the message  were correct and Premier Oliver  properly quoted, then a great deal  cf the Good Roads League's work  was to  be undone. "As one  who  knows and lias aamired the Premier  1 cannot credit this statement to him  sff he made it, then my faith is shaken in both the Premier and Government, and the sooner we have a  Moses who will lead us out of the  wilderness, the better it will be for  British Columbia."   (Loud Cheers.)  Mayor Gale then called on Hon. Dr  King to either support*the promises  made for the fruition of the highway  one  of  demanded a "yes or no" 'from  who was a'responsible minister  the  crown."  Dr. King replying said    he    fully  maintained his position favoring the  highway.     His   position  and that  of  the  government,     he  thought,     was  definite,   and   the   House   committed  to it.    His statements in the   House  were  subsequently  backed     by     the  bill for five million dollars. The work  is under way and the highway will  be constructed he said.  Reason   For  Increase  In  Taxes  Speaking of the-roads of the province at Kamloops, Premier Oliver  claimed they WERE AS GOOD NOW  AS THEY WERE WHEN THE  PRESENT GOVERNMENT! CAMB  INTO POWER, BUT he explained  that LATER THE INCREASE IN  AUTO TRUCKS HAD CAUSED THE  ROADS TO FALL AWAY AND THE  BRIDGES AND CULVERTS TO  BREAK DOWN. THIS was the reason for the increase in the auto tax-v  cs, as he felt that as the autos injured the roads the owner should  pay for the upkeep.  One of our readers asks why  they say "four penitentiaries"  were closed since the prohibition act came into force, as he  knows of only one penitentiary  in the province. The one jail  next this penitentiary is where  Findlay, the great prohibitionist of 1916 is quartered    Adv.  Monday. October,  giving Day.  18th is Thanks-
