OX  SUMAS  PROJECT  Huntingdon,   Oct.   13.���������Anxiety  is  being manifested as to when a start  proper is to be made on the Sumas-  Lake reclamation  scheme. T.ie -present activity is confined  to a ditcher  which   is   digging   a   small   drainage  outlet  more  for  the surface   waters  than  for anything else:     It  was understood   that  the     big     machinery,  which includes, a number    of    drag  lino and  other ditchers of a powerful nature would be at work by August,   15,   but  so   far   these  machines  have not arrived.       One member    of  the local advisory board visited Vancouver  with  the  hope  of getting in  touch with the proper authorities in  an effort to'hurry up. the contractors  The delay may in part be caused by  the wet weather.  Most of the farmers here were  very hard hit by the floods in June  and July and by the heavy rains of  the past six weeks. Unless action is  taken to obviate a recurrence of at  least a portion of the flooding by next  year, some of the present owners of  Sumas Prairie lands will have to vacate their holdings 'and thus lose the  value which will accrue when eventually the whole area is reclaimed.

He is believed to  bo actively implicated in plots for his  restoration.

Miss Irene Moody the retiring  president was presented with a silver'shield for the gavel which she  used to commemorate the third convention over which she has presided  and she was made the honorary mem'  ber on   the. roll.  Permission was asked for school  board .to maintain vacation schools  for backward pupils who ��������� otherwise  would lose a year. The problem' of  providing more school revenue was  solved by asking the Government to  levy a tax on all the residents other  than property owners and to work  out the details with a committee of  the  association.  Tho principle of a lengthened normal term was endorsed.  Inspector F. G. Calvert, in a paper rend to (Iu; meeting, advocated  tho employment of supervisors' by  groups of rural schools.

Hon. Dr.  McLean spoke briefly on educational  matters.  Mr. Oliver said he had been advised to define primary and secondary  roads as laid down in the road policy  of the government. It was a simple  proposition. The state provided 7 5  per cent of the cost of maintaining  primary roads and split fifty-fifty on  he other.  A primary road was one between  cities or intorprovincial. He was a-  ware that municipalities endeavored  to get as large an appropriation as  possible hut there was a limit to the  state   purse.  He saw no reason, he said, why tho  road from Westminster Junction to  Vancouver, via Port Moody, should  not be placed in the primary class.  He would so suggest to the cabinet.  The sum of $2 5,000 had been spent  on the road from loco to Port Moody  he pointed out- and when some one  called out, "It is not good yet," the  Premier retorted that was a matter  of 'opinion.l The road was new and  had a good foundation.  In recapitulating the government's  action on the prohibition question he  lauded the new Voters' Act, which  automatically dropped non-voting  names from the subsequent register.  "Rotten" said a voice, but the  Proiuier pointed out that the-disqualified-man .'could re-register next year.

It was a pitiable-sight'to hear "th"e:-aged- premier  f-tand alone handing out abuse of those who had not stood by him  during the four years of wretched misrepresentation of Dewdney  Riding.    The opportunity to make'good; and'as Maxwell Smith  has r.aid, no government had a better opportunity, has long since  passed and the people of Mission City saw, at least Honest Johr;  thought so, .that they could not look to his assistance in anj.  way Tor the betterment of the riding.

' ��������� '  The next election will tell whether' Premier Oliver made  friends with the Prohibition Party at Missipn City that night.  Oh it was an awful night, a dark night full-of terrors,- but not  one' of the prohibitionists in the hall thought it worth while to  even make one -word of reply. The contempt seemed to anger  the once trusted premier, who was to be faithful to the.cause  of prohibition.  The independent' Liberal, although in the room, was not  given an opportunity to address the'meeting, and why, because  the foundation rock upon which the premier stands is rocking so  that one good solid blow might make it impossible for the premier to again face the audience with even a-ghost of a show of  one word of approval or smile of confidence.- It was a: pitiable  incident in the life of our premier. He dare not do it and he  didn't. ,;  It seems too bad that the provincial government is unable  to unload the P. G. B. on to the C. N. R. The conference at  Victoria this week showed that the tale of increased traffic returns and greater oerating efficiency did not-have the-least effect  on the president of that read and the bonded indebtedness of  the Oliver governmeiit on the P. G. E. will remain with that  government until after the next provincial election. The road  that Premier Oliver in Mission City said 'would never pay for  ^x'.c grease'. The non-paying enterprise will still remain as a  memento of the incompetency of the Oliver government. There  are always two sides to any story and the one Oliver told at  Mission City won't hold. Had the road been.handled in a businesslike way during the past four years there is no doubt but  that the proposition of taking it over would have appealed to  I-res:dent Hanna.  A rather reinarltable    recent    development on   the  Lower   Fraser    is  the breaking up of dairy farms and  cattle  ranches  for subdivision     into  relatively     smaller    ".   fruit-growing  tracts. Land which, planted in fruit,  will return fifty to one hundred per  cent, per year net profit on a $1,000  an  acre  investment,  is too valuable  ���������for pasture and hay purposes, backed  Loo   by   an   unprecedented   and   constantly  increasing  demand for  fresli  fruit,   jam   and   fruit  drinks.       The  celebrated   Rounsfell .slock   farm   O'f  Dewdney is tlie latest.to yield to the  prevailing  tendency,  having recently  neon subdivided  into about    twenty  :ruit-giowing tracts averaging about  iil'teen acres each.     While    a     good  dairying and -stock-raising     district,  .nuch of the Lower Fraser Valley is  peculiarly suited     to    the proiitable  growing  of  fruit,     especially,    small  ruiis.     If it is going to develop    in  ihat   direction,   with   a  relative   cur- '  tailnient  of  its   dairying  and  stock-  raising  activities,  and    wth  several  Interior districts    also    distinctively  i'.'uit-growing, increased development  I of   the   Nicola   Valley's   pre-eminent  j stock-raising     resources     with   progressive developments,    also    of its  dairying possibilities, would seem lo  be  indicated.���������Mcrritt Herald.

Nothing has happened to him,  except that he doesn't get mentioned  in print as often as formerly. He  works as hard as ever.and comes as  near as before to making a good  living,  without quite-doing it.  After consulting with two or three  hard workers an enquirer assures us  that the average hard worker is better off than he was twenty years ago  in this respect; that" he has accumulated   more' "portable" property"     in  the way of home    furnishings    and  things  like ��������� that,   but  is     otherwise  where he-was twenty years, ago.

Watch the  result. How jnany will head for a safe resting place where no  more will the hustings haunt them?  Tlie  trustee convention  at Nelson bitterly complained  of  the actions of the teachers in accepting a second position without giving notice, and secretary Charles'worth of the B. C. T. F.,  conies forward  with  the suggestion  'whereby all acceptances  will be made on one date.'    It may be inconvenient for the trustee boards throughout the province for teachers to    accept    a  school ."and then if a better one offers to accept that also, but  'solf-preservatioV is the first law of nature and if the teacher  has a-chance to better his or her condition, it is no more than  right that they should be privileged to do so.    Of course trustees  ihouid be notified. -  Many boards'have a large number of applications for positions but those who do not receive a position seldom have any  reply, which-is to say the least discourteous, although it does  entail considerable work for the secretary. It is an anxious time  for the teacher without a position and she keeps on applying  for other schools, and finally takes what she considers the best  offer, and why shouldn't she?

There is an Indian legend of a  race of people who dwelt upon Jie  Canadian Prairies before the Red  Men came, but why they vanished or  who they were no man knows. Vanish they did and their place was taken by wandering tribes of Indians  who hunted and fished, built their  iwigwams and their camp-fires, told  their wild legends and smoked their  ���������poace-pipes for many a generation  before the foot of the while men ever  visited the plains that were their  lieritage.  ��������� The first discoverer of Manitoba  -was the ill-fated Henry Hudson, exactly 310 years ago. Others followed  tin his steps. Presently came the adventurer, de Gros-scillier, who after  spying out the land, went back to  .England, where, with Radisson, his  companion, and under the auspices of  ���������Prince Rupert, he obtained large  grants of land from Oharles II. and  .formed that Hudson's Bay Company  "which was destined to play so great a  part in the future history, of Canada.  During the one hundred'..odd years  that intervened between that time  and 19.12, the story of the Hudson's  Bay Company is the story of Manitoba. The years are filled with its  treaties with the Indians, its feuds,  with rival companies and itia usurpation of alb the trade of the vast country over which it ruled, for the most  part, beneficently. Of its rivals the  most important was the ,North-West  Fur Company. Bitter was the contest between these two companies  and many a skirmish was fought between bands of their adh<':_*H:s, unliJ  about 1817 the two conit"..es were  united and peace followed.  Early in 1812, however, Lord Selkirk after buying a controlling interest in the stock of the Hudson's Bay  Company, obtained from it a grant in  lee simple of 116,000 square miles of  Red River territory, between the  present* international boundaries and  Lakes Winnipeg and Winnipcgosis.  This land he proceeded to colonize  vvilh sc-ltleiis from the Scottish Highlands. Tlie Colony grew and flourished. About 18;>0 the population ot  Red River was 1,500. In 1835 the  Council of Assiniboia was organized  lo govern the colony an:l Fort Garry  (now Winnipeg)  was built.  From this time on the history ot  Manitoba is one of growing prouper-  .ty, broken only by the Kiel rebellions of 18G9 and 1885. To Sir Edmund Head, Governor-General of  Canada in 1861, is due the fact tl at  Manitoba was confederated into the  Dominion- In 1889 the Hudson is Bay  Company, or which he was a director, transferred back lo England, ir-  consideration of a sum of ������300 000  the lands which il had received, from  hor some two hundred years before  England transferred the territories  and the debt of '-$.15,000,000 to the  young Dominion of Canada and on  June 17th., 1870, Manitoba became u  Province or that Dominion, ��������� taking  her place among her sisters under  the Lieutenant-Governorship oi  Adams G. Archibald. In 1871 sbi-  elected her first Premier, Hon  Ii. J  Clarke.  Manitoba    has    always     been    a  great   cattle  raising   province.     Bu  besides    this she    possesses    man'  other    sources    of wealth..     In   .th<  valuable area now known as North  ern   Manitoba  she   has   mineral   de  posits of great value, water power:-,  to develop immense power,��������� fisber'cp  capable of yielding large relurr.s. f.;r  bearing    animals  innumerable    and  much   good   land   available   for   the  hardier crops.    The  climate in   this  northern part of Ma^'iba is extreme  but healthy. "  Up to 1870 tbe history ol education  in Manitoba is largely -written in  the heroic efforts of the Church, both  Catholic and Protestant. In the beginning of the Provincial era there  were 33 parish schools in operation,  but in 1876 the number of schools  had grown to 53. La i year there  were 3.200 teachers and 1.15,000 pupils in the public and.high schools  of the Province.  It ie a far cry from the old trading  post of Fort Garry to the big, modern city of Winnipeg. Fifty years  ago this city was a mere village of  only *a couple of hundred people.  Main Street, was only a prairie trail.  There was no school, no .railway or  telegraph "connection with the outer  world; no banks, except that the  Hudson's Bay Company accepted deposits and issued paper money of its  own; and propoi'ty owners paid no  I axes. Bui after 1S70 tlie place be-  gan to grow.' Three -yearn afterwards it had a population, of. over  ���������2,000. and in 187L.it became an incorporated city, with F. E.

That might  have been, true had ALL England���������  rather all the British Empire���������got  there when the sergeant-major . first  ,ooked at his watch. The trouble  started and has not ended yet. Only  a portion of .the nation undertook to  do the task, that required the utmost,  from everybody. * I remember making the- statement at a recruiting  meeting that fo wiu the war within  the shortest possible period it , required that the whole nation should  be so thoroughly organized that nothing should be left undone from  splitting of kindling wood al home  to taking trenches at tbe front. And  l stated furthermore that for every  hour that the war lasted beyond the  time within our power to finish it.  we would be. guilty of the lives lost  and the added suffering. 1 have never changed my mind in this regard.  The moment that this nation declared war, that moment wo were ALL  at war. and, from that time till the  end of the strife there should have  been no profits and no pastimes, except those especially permitted for  the good of all. Every ounce of  strength, whether of money, muscle  or talent, should have been used  under organized super-vision I'or  the purpose of terminating the struggle at the earliest possible moment.  What  happened? Managers of  plants would appear on recruiting  platforms and return to their offices  to offer, special inducements to useful men if they would remain with  the firm.' Men who grew enthusiastic about getting overseas would pull  strings to get back again when they  heard of big wages being paid to  munition workers. Cenerals must  have their fittings, and the big dealers must make their gains. Tho result of it was that a portion had to  do the job when the whole should  have been employed and Tommy was  the underdog. Then politics got into it. I heard a Major say that if  ever there was another war the first  wise move would he to lock up all  Hie politicians. In a country where  wo run our affairs politically 1 cannot agree with him, but there is a  time When even a politician should  think of the good of the country at  large and not of his party or his particular constituency.

Business has been good  and many cars of fruit have rolled  to country points. Brokers are finding sales of apples and onions very  slow, most of the jobbers being content to allow their former purchases  to clean up before ordering more.  Washington quotations are    shad  ing the advance B. Q. sales. This year  l;hey are featuring a wrapped apple  described as  "unclassified."   '   These  ire usually a fair sample of orchard  run apples. They are offered at from  M.50 fo $1.05 depending on the varieties' which arc nearly all old fashioned sorts with a sprinkling of \\rine  saps to sweeten them up. We hear  on good authority that one brokerage  concern iu Regina lias bought 125  oars of this class of apples. The United Grain Growers have again r  boughlB.

C. and shippers are shading their former prices  a Jifllo to clear. There is lillle or  iio storage of apples being attempted  by local jobbers and the same is true  of onions and potatoes.  B.

Very few potatoes  are arriving on this market from  anywhere.  We notice good, bad and Indifferent onions coming in from B. C. all  shapes, colors and sizes in. the same  bag. They would not represent with  in $10.00 per ton the value of well  graded stock and great dissatisfaction is expressed by receivers. Tomatoes aro cleaning up slowly, peaches are about off the market with prices /inning.. A few complaints are  inade of uiuiercolorcd apples. The usual comments on B.

The subject was given  i.y ;\:r. It. Sparling, Aberdeen School.  I ill tor comment was passed upon  teachers who accept a second position jr.sL before term opens, resigning the first, offer without notice,  thus pulling school boards to great  inconvenience  in  opening school. ���������  Mr. Charlsworth, secretary of the  UriLifih Columbia Teachers- Federation was prepared with a new arrangement  for    engagement    which  a growing conviction that the whole   tonde(i   t0   allow     experienced     and  high  school   teachers  to  qualify     in  uew  subjects.  A scheme to send inspectors on  tour in other parts of the continent  had been established. Two or three  would go each year to study other  systems  of  education.  In response to requests from a  few boards, men would be appointed  permanently to inspectorates, making a live-year stay in each district.  To deal with alien populations  and Doukhobors in particular, official trustees could now be appointed.  Tlie first of these, Inspector Miller, was to be commended for his ex-  will- bo  presented next year,whereby |Ccller.t work  iu this capacity among  ail acceptances will  be made on  one  dill?.

It is said that  a working agreement with the teachers' federation will follow immediately.  lion. Dr. McLean, in a public ad  the Doukhobors, who, refusing hith-.  erto-to educate their children were  now supporting eleven schools,  where 254 of their children were in  earnest study. This was .a splendid  ���������result. Schools for the deaf, blind  and subnormal wore in course of  preparation.  Dr. McLean had little time to discuss  finances,   but  pointed   out  that  Qnitc'a large audience asembled in  the Victory Theatre on Thursday evening  last to  hear  the premier  and  JHon. -T. D. McLean,'Minitser of Education.  Everyone of the hearers apepared  to be In the best of humor and took  as a matter of course what the premier said. ,4,  Several questions were asked the  premier which apepared to not put  him in the best of humor. The  board of trade wanted to know about  the reduction of the ferry rates but  Premier Oliver stated that the only  wa'v the Mission City Board of Trade  could get what they wanted was to  put the present Liberal government  out of power; they also wanted to  know about the $300,000 and the  premier read correspondence, sent to  f and from Ottawa. . The board should  have had this correspondence sent  direct to it. The premier seemed  quite peeved, with the board.  The Reeve of Mission asked about  the primary road on the north side  of the river. While the Mission council had played the game right with  the government, said the Premier the  Maple Ridge council had been trying  to play politics and they did not  know the ABC about politics.  Fremier Olive;* tnen stated that it  was the intention to make the river  road the through road and build a  bridge across the Stave at Ruskin. He  intimated that they present government had data about this proposed  road; but the old government had  made a mistake about the Dewdney  Trunk   road.  The speaker challenged any prohibitionist to come forward and show  where the' government had failed in  regard to the carrying out of the act.  The   prohibitionists   let  the   premier  rave on.  The premeier dealt with the lanci  policy, with the treatment of the soldiers and with the railway policy, but  did not forget to pass his respects to  Mr. Bowser, leader of the opposition  About Bowser he apepared to not  be able to say enough bad, about the  soldiers he thought the government  had treated them fairly; about tho  p. G. 13. he thought it would never  pay axle-grease, unless extended into  the Peace river district, which would  be   years.  Referring to the road policy he  stated that the present government  had better roads on one-quarter of  tho money than the old government  spent. "You have not kept them  up" said a former supporter of Dewdney, but the premier thought 'that a  matter of opinion.' No satisfaction  was given about local roads or any  further improvement of them.  The meeting broke up after Hon  J.   D.   McLean  spoke,  the speech   in  this case being much the same as at  Nelson to the school trustees.  A T. N. T.
