It'is not, however,  willing to become a''political football,  nor to receive into its ranks the radical",     unreasonable,   "element,,  which  has already    done ko    much    harm.  The good name, now'held by    the 0:  W. V. A.' by the public, as well    as  by  the  Provincial  and  Federal  Governments, warrants'."great caution    in  making      any    change.

The orphan children of the devastated regions of  France-are making thousands of poppies, which we have undertaken to  buy from them.. These poppies will  be'sold by the G.- VV. "V.

To all our friends in Abbotsford  and district, we want to-say - this:  Our work is no selfish object.

A. BATES. Editor and Proprietor  . Published   Every  Friday  KltlDAY,OCTOiiKK  7,     U)^l  A few days ago we read about  Hon. Mackenzie King slating that  it, was an amocralic act on the pact  of the Meighen government lo con-  t'inue in'office so long, and especially  aflr'M-.aocppiig office as ho did. King's  opinion seems'' lo prevail dial  Meighcn should ' have immediately  went to the country after rising to  the* head of the present, government.  We believe that-lie should, or have  waited probably a little longer until  a redistribution  bill was passed.  But we wisli to'- point out ''that  when the Liberal Government came  into power in B. C. in 1916 that' the  late lion. Drowsier was at the head  of affairs. After-his death the present premier, Hon. John Oliver, was  elected by his associates, similiar to  Meighen to the control of affairs, fie  did not go to the provneo for a, new  election, and we have yet to hear  that any of tho Conservatives called  it. "autocratic.!' lie remained at. the  head of affairs until the election last,  year and was returned.  The "constituency or district of the  Fraser Valley extends on the north  side of the river from Lake Runtzen.  Poi;t Moody, loco on die west, to Yale  and Port Douglas on the east; and on  lhp south side of the river from the  boundary line between Matsqui and  Langley to and including. Mope.  ���������rIh'-*re wpre :'.4 polling places at tin-  lpst dominion election. At the last  election'it was. known as the district  of . West minster, -tout our present  . member,'Mr. F. R. Stacey,-has had  the. name.changed to Fraser Valley  District,-by act of parliament.  No one will deny but that this is  one of the choicest, areas in the province of Rritish Columbia, and possibly in all the Dominion of .Canada  and dm man who represents the Eraser Valley can hoasL of having one  of ihe most fertile and promising districts in the Dominion to look after.  He does not need to be a loud booster when he claims that no area is  superior and therefore requires the  very best attention.  To represent the Fraser Valley  District at Ottawa is an honor that  any member of parliament may well  feel proud of, and shuolcl.use his utmost endeavors to call the attention  oi' tlie federal government, to its re-  Oiiirnnionts an a.- growing district in  such a manner as to secure appropriations for needed improvements  with a view to development.  This area includes such industries  as dairying, small fruits, apple fruits  and farming of all kinds, industrial  centres, lumbering, mining, and has  one of the finest waterways in the  Dominion, second only to thai of the  St. Lawrence (but requires considerable attention.) These industries  are all growing industries and should j  be fondled by any government with a !  view to securing from them the  very  highest production   possible.  The man who is elected to    represent the Fraser Valley, whether Liberal   or  Conservative,   should   be  big  and broad-minded enough to    formulate a policy that    would    give each j  part of the district all that is coming i  to it.    During the next quarter of    a :  century the    Eraser    Valley  District  should become the-'   banner    district  for production in tlie    Dominion, and  the  Fraser River    become an important factor in  the    trade and    commerce of    the    Pacific . coast.    With  this    object in    view a    policy    that  would mean development of the Fraser River so that, tlie deep water vessels could reach as far as the head of j  navigation, Hope, should, be-the aim  of our representative at Ottawa. Let!  us impress this upon our candidates.

Well, the railway  rates hadn't done this gobbling it  seemed. There were the books, and  there were the pages, and there were  the columns���������and there the figures!  If Bill's oats.'had been of-the, lowest  grade, and if they had been shipped  on the longest haul at .the,;highest  rate" and so!.d for . the lowest price  in the year he svas talking about������������������  Why-Bill must have got at least $522  for his 1,800 bushels instead ' of the  $250 which he'told'the. world about.'  And if his oats' had been high-priced  oats, he wotild have had nearer $700.  But he said, -"said tlie railv/aynien,  that, ha got only $-:i)0 and. thai 'V  railways had. talent (he rest.        V  I could have to!d ��������� these 'Eastern  railway offioia's even .worse examples of election-time arithmetic  than this one. There is far mon*  careless addition and subtraction  fright-here in the East. But if they  i-waated   Western   cases���������there   was  that farmer mentioned by Bill Langley, who claimed that-*,b',000 -bushels  'of oats on which he paid 13c-a bushel  freight rate, would not net him more  .ban lie after paying for threshing.  Weil, if .his oats had been of the lowest grade, and sold at the lowest  ;<rice that is 42%c, he must still  ave had ISc a bushel with which to  pay the thresher.. ..Of course, every  Jar me r knows that no ��������� tnresherman  ever- got---I8e a bushel. The inference in-this cascwas that once more  ne railways were getting it.;-  There was also the case of a Mr.  Brown, of- the United !.Farmers of  Manitoba who says that tlie cost of  a binder laid down at Pilot Mound,  Manitoba,-is now $48 higher than it  was last year, and that the railway rates are to blame for $22 out  ,i the $48. 1 happen to know from  an- implement manufacturer tha* the  entire freight costs of a five-foot  binder if shipped in carloads from  Hamilton, or Toronto to Pilot Mound  in the spring of 1920 was $12.16; in  April, 1921, $10.40; an actual difference of $4.24. If carried in carloads to Winnipeg and re-shipped as  an individual binder from that point-  to .Pilot Mound the total freight cost  in 1920 was $19.25, and in 1921,  $25.25, a difference of $6. Mr.  Brown's estimate of the increase  alone was greater than the entire  cost. ' '       :���������-.-   ���������-��������� -   ���������  But could you explain, to'Eastern  railway officials that poor Bill Lang'  ley's figures., and poor Mr. Brown's  figures must not be mistaken .for  Western arithmetic! That because  Langley was a cabinet minister the  Western farmer was not fooled into  thinking that two and'two make five,  simple because Bill sometimes thinks  so. Surely the East has seen just  such foolish examples ot! arithmetic  in the strain of fighting-elections,  'there is no higher level of native  intelligence anywhere in this world  than among the people I come from,  the kind that had the courage to  march up-to a new country and say.  "Here! ,'I am going to tame you!"  and stick to it, although that country might .still send all its forces  of snow and wiiicl and old-time loneliness to try to drive them back. As  proof of the fact Langley was defeated'in tlie Saskatchewan elections  ���������rejected along with his. arithmetic.  But leave the railways out of it.  Among the small Eastern investors  ���������the kind with ���������������������������whom' my business  brings me in frequent '��������� contact���������I  find what 1 might almost call  sublime conceit in supposing that  they can see through the charlatan  ancl discover the fraud out West  twice as quickly as the West ���������'itself..  "No," quavers one of these very nice  people with perhaps-$1,000 to invest.  "1 don't think-1 care to hold any  more western' school ilebentur���������-���������'������������������'or  city bonds, or whatever it is'���������-until  1 see. There is a bit,loo much dema-  ���������������������������o'gery out there! Too many young  awvers  struttinr -around  :uid   flirt  ing   with    parlo.'^ Jolshcvism..  Not  just the 0. B. Li. strike in Winnipeg  '-hough-that'was bad enough���������but 1  read of a case, etc., etc, etc." 1  wonder how many of the well-informed easterners know the amount  of buncombe of that kind is talked  among the little investors in the  East and in England, timid people to  whom   the   loss   of  the  interest  on  even one debenture would mean some  bill unpaid, some comfort done without?  The West  is just as sane as the  East.   It sees through its own demagogues just as quickly and perhaps  a little more quickly than the easterner.     The   western   farmer  is  the  last   man .in   the  world   to   tolerate  Bolshevism.     If,- as   I   suppose,   the  basis of this eastern distrust is due  lo sometimes extravagant attacks on  the railways by western' orators,~'the  East .should   remember  that- one  ol  the surest ways a y.oung lawyer-can  take for getting into the1 public eye  out West, and winning a good constituency is to quote Scripture and  rag the railways.    It is always .better   for   a   family   doctor   to ��������� tell   a  lady   patient   she   has   XYX-ism   of  the ABC  than to tell her the' truth  that   she . is   really   suffering   from  run-down nerves, unwise eating, late  hours, too much coffee, worry over  her   children,   and   acidosis   of   the  temper.    She   would  never  recover.  So  these "popular   and   wise   young,  doctors  of state floiu-ish the sword  of scriptural   quotation   and -shout"  "have   you    troubles   good- people?  Stop   worrying. .   Your    public    ailments are really very simple.    You  think you have many, but you really  have only one railway rates!    "If ha  explained   the whole combination of  economic conditions  that cause this  or    that    unpleasant,  symptom-he  would put the wise men in his audience to sleep, and the rest would be  frightened to death.    But the West,  which  is  mostly' wise, is not fooled  even by his promise'to bring low the  great.    It winks and^enjoys tHe fireworks.    It knows very well when he  1'jotes  Scripture  to-'liken  the Winnipeg   Board   of   Trade  ��������� to    Judas  fscariot, that he had to ask a Metho-  clbt preacher to look up the quota-  ion, because the leaves of the office  Bible,  used' for swearing affidavits,  are pasted  together to keep it from  falling open and embarrassing some  dient  in   the   middle  of  a  perfectly  good deal.   These youngsters get up  tnd talk about the psychology of .the  farmer���������as though any self-respect-  .cg farmer would admit having such  :\ thing, and as though these young  orators had ever beard the.-matutinal  rooster or sweated' behind a binder.  The West knows that when this lad  gets lo Parliament and his party-is  in power, 'responsibilities will  sober  iiim   up.     It  knows  that  he' knows  'hat nobody understands better than  the  West  the  importance of having  railways prosperous er.ough a:;d ani-  litious enough to carry i:on as leaders in the development of the whole  country.

(From  the  Montreal  Gazette-)  Early this' week Calgary fruit men  ���������were agitated by the sale of crated  Mcintosh lied apples at-5^1 to 15tf a  box below what the Wealthies in  ..crates were selling for. A leading  jobbing house received the Mucks  ancl we feel disposed to remark that  their judgment in selling- under the  market was' not the acme of salesmanship nor will this act make crated apples popular. We noticed these  .apples first in grocerterias'aud then  in the windows of the leading grocers  Gravensteins'which showed signs    of.'  '"Bitter pit" was sold by..,one of    the-  wholesale houses here to a chain of  retail stores.    These    are'being ad-'  verfised    retail as    No. 1   -wrapped'  stock for $2.00 per case.  1    Owing to a tenVparary over-supply'  of green peppers during the week    a  large quantity    we're - sold     by    one  house at 8(5 per lb.    The demand for  peppers is always limited.  There has been a heavy sale of  crates of unwrapped Mcintosh Red  apples���������:Uiey wholesaled , at $1.50  and retailed at $1.85 per crate. While  The apples came-from the Okanagan  these .crates are ..available,   they     to  "'   "    "  a    httle smA11 and otrU. large extent stop the sale of No. 1  and. although a' little small'"and  color for the .variety they were the  best apple ' buy in town. At least  one more car of crated Macks were  sold to meet this cut, and this time  the .apples were fair-sized ancl well  colored.  The effect on an unsteady -market  has been to lower prices all around.  Brokers asking $1.25 for crated  Wealthies t'.o.b. shipping point, are  met with an offer of 60<> ancl P>5<*-,-  scarcely enough to pay for box and  ,picking. Thiss will have a decided  influence in stopping consignnii-mls,  also the, rush to sell apples before the  frost makes shipping hazardous.  There is no need for stampeding  this market or any other with apples.  We predict that in thirty clays things  will clear up ancl prices will be normal with a good demand. Advices  from Yakima and Wenatchee show a  healthy state of business there They  have no hope for any Canadian business' until after Christmas when 'hey '  nticipate Candian pples will be cleaned up. We think this-guess about ;  right, unless our .shippers get together to prevent cleaning up before the  best market prices of the season are  ruling.  stock which retail at $3.50.  A PUBLICITY'   STUNT THAT   WON  WEEK IX C.UiOAKY  The weather has been unsettled,  strong winds have prevailed. It is  now fine, crisp weather with white  frosts in morning. Manitoba reports  70 per cent, of threshing clone, while  Saskatchewan has only -10 per cent,  clone���������Alberta about 50 per cent.  Much loss in grade (has resulted in  Saskatchewan owing to the practise  ���������of threshing from the stook���������stack-  in the sheaves would prevent murh  of this trouble.  A heavy windstorm is reported in  the Okanagan, damaging |he apple  crofJ to the extent of '100 cars. These  ���������windfall apples will only be fit for  the evaporator or other by-products.  The Mcintosh Red variety has suffered the worst as' It was their picking time. The Wagner has also been  hard   hit.  Market ���������'.conditions'are. improving  here. Frost has stopped the shipment of vine products excepting the  grape, and attention is now being  centered on onions' and apples.  The first carload of cranberries arrived this week, wholesaling at '$22.-  50 per barrel.  ���������Wholesalers say owing to the poor  condition of Ontario Concord grapes  on arrival, they Will not attempt to  bring any more this year.
