To that Government I gave consistent and loyal support during  foiir sessions of Parliament and also "gave .my best  attention to the needs and interests of our own  electoral district as they appeared from time to  time.  I had the honor of introducing the first resolution proposing the fusion of the two parties supporting the Government which union was finally  consummated on Dominion Da}', 1920, under the  name of the National Liberal and Conservative  Party of Canada. To this united national party I  have given my full allegiance and "whole hearted  support. 1 have absolute confidence in the Rl.  Hon. Arthur Meighen and fully endorse the platform and policy of his Government. 1 believe the  Prime Minister is honestlv endeavoring to reunite  a war stricken people and effectually bury sectionalism. His-fiscal policy of an adequate pro-  lection for every Canadian industry needing il,  appeals lo me as not only wise and statesmanlike  but as absolutely necessary in the interests of our  whole population in view of the general upward  trend of tariff legislation the world over during  the last two vears or since the signing of the ami-  istice.   .  I have advocated on the floor of the House  greater restriction of Oriental immigration and  believe the time has arrived when this policy can  be adopted without danger of international complications  I have received and accepted nomination as the  Government candidate in the approaching general election and hope to have the privilege of discussing Federal questions with you during the  campaign. If honored with your confidence and  vote on the 6th of December 1 shall endeavor as  your representative to give effect to the foregoing  general policy and also support all other measures which may promote the prosperity, the comfort and best life of the Canadian people.

CHILLIWACK   GETTING   ON  THE  MAP  THESE  IlAI'S  In Dominion elections this part of  the  Fraser Valley  used to be linked  up  with  New Westminster citv, and  in  1917, when Dewdney, Chilliwack,  und part of Yale was formed into one  district by itself many people thought  it the  right and  proper thing.      At  the session     following    our    lederal  member hud the name of the district  changed   from   Westminster   to   l-Ya-  sor Valley, which  also  met with the  approval of the majority of the people. "  The present, district c -.uprises  Chilliwack, Dewdney and as far east  us Yale and Hope. Our member for  the Federal House s'nee 101.7 r.ride*  at Chilliwack. Tlie two candidates  in the present election resides in  Chilliwack. The census 'lomni.Tsion-  er came from Chilliwack; and the  returning officer for the present election is a Chilliwackian. Where New  Westminster was formerh accused of  running our federal affairs, now it !s  Chilliwack.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  Published1 'Every  Friday -  s   'UKOJiOGIGAL SL'RIEY  FRIDAY, OCTOBER 21, 1921  The 'federal election will'soon he on  in full swing and the  Liberals are |,liro,������hesying a Liberal landslide the   same as    in  1S9G. while (he-Unionists believe in their hearts that, Ihey wt  be relnrned lo power, and (he .Farmers hope that Ontario will  do Iho IriciU I'or them at the election. ,  All parties, that is the Liberals and Unionists, agree on one  particular point in regard to the present election, and that is  that neither one of. them v/ould like to see group government,  and Dr. Michael Clark, one of the prominent Liberals in the  West wiUnot permit his name to go before the electorate, not  being in accord with either the Farmer party or the Liberals.  But the farmers and the Liberals have much in common, when  it comes-down to party principles.  Mackenie King, the leader of the Liberals, does not appear to  fit in well with the party in all parts of the dominion, and now  Sir Lormer Gouin announces that he will be glad to have the  ���������name come before a certain convention in the east, and further,  that he wants to bring back Sir Thomas White, a Unionist, to  make a "dicker".' What this ".dicker" is the public are not.yet  quite clear on, especially in the West. But it would indicate  that.there are those who do not believe that Mackenzie King  1 ,    ��������� ��������� i    , w1  tiin TTWlich  epptimm of the do" or the valuable    survey work ol    tl  can carry both the French and the English sections ol uieuu   Fnis01. ,-livor fl.om,Kort   Langley: >  -minion     There is doubt even, in some quarters, that he can car- Lhe Sand Hea(ls unc, adjacent   ton  111 1 J HUH . i        * i_ ... i n,r ...       \ \ T        l I Oi--. it .-I   .,\\ ��������� > a     \\ Ckc.  ry his chosen constituency.  Mr. Crerar does not appeal  election goes on.  to be gaining in strength as the  Dr. Michael "Ciark- has left    him,    because  Michael is not in favor of group government, and Crerar is. No  doubt this has affected the Farmer party leader,    because   Dr.  Clark is a power in the prairie provinces.-  "*   Premier Meighen has returned from the Maritime provinces  and report has it that he is well  satisfied with the progress  made, while the opposition parties have-spread the report that  Meighen will not get a majority in those provinces.     "With Sir  Lormer in  the field it does not look as though  the Meighen  ministry in Quebec would have a majority in Quebec, but the  former premier of Quebec may be riding to a fall, even in his  ow!n province.    Laurier did.    _ , .   ..  hold of the Unionists, and   even that does not   look   any too foL public use andimform.t,on.  bright, if we are to believe what the two oppositionists say.  If the election in the east hinges' on the questions of protection, free trade, reciprocity or annexation, there is not a question  but' that the Unionists will have the majority, but otherwise it  looks as though no party will have the majority. . ".;  Tucked away in a quiet corner on  the    upper    floor ol'    tho   Industrial  building at the Provincial- Inhibition  was the exhibit of a federal Government department which  is    carrying-  out ii work ol' groat ��������� importance    to  (he  fanners and   residents generally  of the Fraser Valley. . It was the exhibit of    the    Dominion    Geological  Survey    Department    , arid    was    in  charge of Mr,' A. J. C. Nelte.ll, uecre-  tary of the department's    branch office in..Vancouver.  The display of a number of .rather  fine photographic  views of    interior-  ami boundary line, sections of Bi C.  attracted  the attention  of an exhibi-  .Lion visitor as he    passed    tho ��������� Geological Survey booth,    but lln-- array  of government-"blue-books" and dry  looking maps/one    perceived,    upon  rurther investigation, caused  the average visitor to i>a*s on to the    more  attractive and p'ahilnblo features afforded by the domestic ' science, art-  galley and other,adjacent exhibits. A  few minutes talk*,"'however, with Mr.  Nettell, the curutoi1 of this array    of,  maps'a-nd  blue boo'ks,'   revealed that  fact that it    was an     exhibition .  of  much interest and no little- actual value to the Fraser Valley resident and  farmer, to the mineralogist, oil prospector,  real  estate owner,    surveyor  and in fact to every'cltiss of business  man in the Province.  Of particular interest to the Lower  Fraser Valley resident in the exhibit  were the advance sheets and reports  tbe  to  i-  tory, that    Mr. W. 11. Boyd has been  carrying out, for the past few years,  for the Department of Public Works.  In addition to an    absolutely    accurate survey of the river, with    its  various channel  islands, sand  banks,  erosions, .etc.,  Mr.  Boyd has collected  much  data regarding the  Fraser,  its high waters, siltings and changes  covering a period from  1827 to-1 ft 19  Sectional maps showing these changes and reports    upon  the same have  been prepared.    The whole territory,  from  Burrard  MUet to the Boundary  line and from the Sand Heads to Fort  Langley", is covered in    these    maps  and reports, which are' very comprehensive.    They    include    base, maps,  ��������� geological, topographical and culture  Ontario is claimed as the strong- ��������� niaps anci au wni   soon be available  Some predict fireworks at Victoria before the present session  is over. What with the proposed contentious legislation regarding the question of raising more money and the amendments to the liquor act none of us would be surprised even if the  government found itself in quite a tight place aiid cornered. But  then there is this1 about it it w.'ill help to liven up the dullness of  the fall and early winter months, and no "one will grieve very  seriously were the Oliver government to cease to~ exist.  "Hush" is the safe motto of the Oliver government, says the  British Columbian, the most corrupt and incapable ever experienced in British Columbia.  The evidence in the liquor warehouse libel suit makes plain  why so strenuous an effort was made to prevent discussion in  the press. It will be remembered that an injunction restaining  discussion was secured from the courts quickly following the  first disclosures.  Now a jury has found that the damaging statements published were substantially correct And they have been informed  through the evidence that the beneficiary of this improvident  and extraordinary transaction is a member of the so-called  "Liberal Association" whose function is to collect funds and distribute them to the party candidates in the several constituencies  And that one of the seven named as constituting this association is the Premier of British Columbia, "honest" John Oliver  himself. This we read in the report of the evidence published  in  the defendant newspaper.  So in his elaborate defence of this deal "honest" John is the  champion of the collector for his select organization.  Questions as to the source and extent of the Oliver campaign  funds were disallowed by the court. There is, however, the higher court of the legislature. It is to hoped that these questions  Will be repeated there.  The base maps' "cover the entire  section indicated but separate control sheets are being prepared for  each section and will be issued accompanied by manuscript or legends  covering much  detail information.  The Fraser River map and reports  will be exceedingly valuable in' - connection with dealing with such problems as Nicomen 'Island, the Sumas  Lake reclamation and similiar works  present. The general maps win na  valuable as affording absolutely accurate data for surveyors and land  owners to work upon and will aL-x-  indicate the roads, settlements', railways, post offices, police stations,  churches, schools, etc., in every district, while the culture maps of Vancouver and New Westminster will  not only show the exact location of  the streets and public buildings, but  every house and building will be indicated.  All this, however, is only a small  part of the work that was represented by the exhibit, and the department  branch in Vancouver. The blue  books, maps and references embracr  the results' of fifty years of geological survey work in ,B. C. liiey include' over six hundred pages of reports,'six hundred odd illustrations  and one hundred and fifty mops.  Flora geology and topography are all  covered in the reports. Informafioo  and maps on the Fort Norman oil  fields, Athabaska tar sands and as-  p.haltum deposits, the gold mining  areas, the Coast line and Vancouver  Island are all available through' this  departmental office, of-which Maj.  J. D. McKenzie is tbe chief, with  Mr. W. A. Johnston as geologist and  Dr. G. Hanson, assistant, Mr. A. J. C.  Nettell is the secretary and curator.  The office itself is situated in the Pacific Building in Vancouver, and tlie  use that is made of it. as a source of  public information may be gathered  from the fact that, so far, .this year  1,600 people have visited tho office  seeking enlightenment upon matters  dealt with by ope or other of its  branches and  staff of experts.  The already firmly fixed star of the Hon, Arthur Meighen is  still in the ascendant, says the Kamloops Standard-Sentinel.  Apart'from the many great distinctive occasions in public life  which made his name'at last of international repute, by way of  contrast in the political constellation, the dullness of that, glow  which belongs to those of other leaders lends an added touch of  brilliance to that of the but recently, obscure'lawyer of Portage  la Prairie.  Yet from all over the country come impressions that Mr." Arthur Meighen, by his very superiority as a leader, which allows  of no present-day comparisons, will continue to gain in powter  as the man to pin the national faith to. He has a programme,  clear-cut, final. There is no shuffling in his confession of.iai,th.  He believes that what he (.espouses is the only economic salvation of the Dominion,,   He does not guess, he is sure.  ATiRKIlM  TO  LOSR'  ���������'SKliP-COVERNMRNT  VICTORIA, B. C., Oct.

Today we find group striving against group,  class against class, the industrial and financial  structure of the country assailed by false and  unsound doctrines and theories, while our  great neighbour to the south has adopted a  trade exclusion policy directed against Canada's  vast.agricultural interests. '  The currencies of nearly every country in the world  are depreciated. The Canadian dollar in the United  States is subject to a heavy discount causing- a loss  of over, one'hundred million dollars in exchange  annually/ ;  Europe is overwhelmed with war debts���������unemployment is acute ��������� and the restoration to pre-war  conditions is slow.  While Canada is in a much more favorable condition  than many countries, yet there is evidence of stagnation, instability, unemployment and lack of confidence.  Taxes are heavy because of the-country's efforts in  the Great \Var, .but have become ^burdensome on  account of the misconceived policies and blunders  of Governments that directed Canada's affairs prior  to 1911.  These conditions are largely the direct aftermath of  the war, but they must be dealt .with fearlessly and  constructively. This is no time to consider experimental changes, or the theories of visionaries.  This is no time for Crerar and his Free Trade policy.  This is no. time for King and his wobbling "charted"  policies, varying with each provincial boundary.  It is the time to cling to orderly, stable Government  in the interest of all the people; to be guided by the  experience of the past, proceeding upon lines that  have been proven sound.  It is the time to place the destinies^of Canada again  in the hands of a Government led by a sane, courageous Canadian who has safely brought the country  through the trying years of reconstruction, and upon .  whom we can rely to retain and initiate policies in  the interest, not of a group or class but of all the  people.  It is the time to support Arthur Meighen and his  Candidates.  61  4U  The National Liberal and Conservative Party  Publicity Committee  .-AIM'JiM  liKAIi COXSUMM.YTKI.)  An  apple doal affecting a portion ,  of the Creston and Kootenai' apples  has been closed with a Calgai;-- firm. ,  The arrangement    seems     fair,    al-j  though we hear complaints from    the ;  trade that it fixes a price which they j  cannot improve on, we    differ   from ���������  this view.     iVfany winter apples    in-!  eluded in the deal    are not the usual  standard sellers and there is no reason why Spies, Snows, Spitz, Newtons  or Delicious should be    sold at    the  minimum price set.  The deal fixes a minimum for present distribution,  it  provides  storage j  for shippers that have no home stor-;  age and if the market    advances the  /    shipper receives all that they realize  less a very reasonable commission  The purchasing firm pays freight  and makes an advance of $300 per  car on all apples placed in storage for  later selling. The apple market has  been demoralized on the prairies, few  winter apples have been bought. The  bulk of the supply, from the Okanagan is going to other markets. Everything points to a firmer market  imediately with higher prices after  Christmas than the opening prices  named by B. C. shippers.  We predict that jobbers will'make  money this season by buying within  the next few weeks. We also predict  that few sales will be made owing to  the pessimism prevailing on the  prairies at present.
