.tei: THE ABBOTSFORD POST,  ABB6tSFORD, B. C.  We beg to announce to the readers of this paper, that after being tenants in 675 Columbia Street, New  Westminster, for some twelve years we have been forced to vacate these premises by the end of February.  In turning us out the landlord does riot consider the monetary loss we will sustain by our moving the1 largest stock of Men's Clothing, Furnishings, etc. in the City. In the ordinary way of business it is impossible  to sell out such a large stock in a few short months: There is therefore only one thing we can do, and that is  to sacrifice our goods and give them to the public at genuine'reductions.  We have built up a large business through  giving the. public the very best at the least possible cost.  Among our many high-class lines are Campbell's Clothing:.   These Clothes need no reccommenclation to y the  better dressed man.     They are the essence of style, fit, finish, and their wearing qualities have no equal/  For the next four months we are going to give the best value in Men's Furnishings ever given in this city,  and it will pay you to watch this space'. /  MEN'S SUITS  Reg.

G.  SHORTAGE  OF  LABOR  The 'executive of the British Gol-  umb:a after- full discussion, at a  recent meeting; came-' to the unanimous that the labor -question  has been the most pressing /One  .confronting  our   fruit   industry.  This year, our fruit districts have  been much handicapped by lack  of labor for 'the 'harvesting <*bf  bumper crop. OThe canneries and1  Jam factories have had lheir tout  put -curtailed fifty per cent, largely foi{ lack of labor. The cost  of labor is now so -.(high .that the  majority .of their fruitgrowers  have) their profits .materially reduced, in some cases seriously so.  Immigration projects and municipal enterprises requiring labor  are; being retarded or are not \bs-  ing undertaken because of the  scarcity  iof   lajbor.  In the timbered districts ofth.e  \,n \ ince, as is well known, land  'charing 'has been almost at a  standstill  since  about  1902. In  ths dairy and general farming districts thq labor scarcity is ,on.a of  tho most pressing problems.  British Columbia is at the present time, very favorably regarded  in Great Britain as a place for the  investment of capital but in too  largo, a percentage of recent instances the; knowledge! of the act-  iui; Iabor .conditions-has prevented  investment,. Intending .settlers  witih means have ,been deterred  from purchasing because of the  duly high cost of development of  agi'/culLuraliand jfruit growing pro  positions..  An increase^ fruit crop, such as  can be; normally expected next  year, will find .conditions much  rnon.1 acuU). than this year, entailing greater costs'in-handling .the'  crop. A few figures on coses in  Oregon and Washington may be  interesting. On .Vaaii-on. Island,  our foremost competitor,in strawberries the .m,aina1go rof the Assoc  iation informed me that they figur  ed Ojn, growing a crate of (Strawberries fon 30 cei&ts, picking for 30  cents, packing for'12 cents aTxd  paid 20 cents for the crate. The  average prices received for 24 lb.  crate' this year was $3.30 and the  acreage, ia berrie9 at this price is  increasing. In Hood River the  manager of b~ -n'on '^formed mo  that it cost them to grow strawberries "0 cents, to pick and pack  50 cents and crates ��jost 20 cents  Any 'Strawberry grower who com  pares these costs and prices .with  uirs w; 1 ��� ?e what a handicap our  high cost of labor Is. In Puyal-  lup, th| fmost\ important raspberry  section irj Washington it cost, according to the'manager-of the Association 40 centB per 22 lb. crate  was .16 cents, the average price received for berries f.o.b. the cars  was $1.55t at. which price .and'costs  the acreage is increasing. Our  , raspberry gro.werB Bhould should  note these figureB. .In Puyallup,  high class day labor, white, cost  $2 for 10 hour day work, and per  month received $40 with board;  man and team,110 hours $5.00  In the Rogue. River-Valley, Southern Or/egon, a team costs $4  to $5 por,'day, day labor $1.50 .to  $1.75, labor/by|. the month $30 .with  board, by thes year $20 to $30~ a  month with board. The average  coat of, packing apples is 6c .'to 7,c  a box, the boxes cost 10 to lie ������ n-  growers figure they can produce  apples and load them on the cars  a\ a costi of 50 cents per box for  No. 1   apples.  In riie apple districts -of Eastern Washington prices are somewhat in advance of these but as  a', rule1 prices.^ for labor and boxes  are 25 per cent cheaper than iiri  British Columbia. , Our selling  prices must? be based nevertheless  on thos/e' of our competitors in  Oregon and Washington. This  means that before next season we  should have/made at least     some  progress in, 'solving the labor pro-  oj'oiu  at reasonable  prices.  While  the fruit grower  and  especially the ismall 'holder who cannot directly /import labor in quan-  , ity,    is   most   :,affected,      it     is  ���quite true that all our agricultural  nduslrios are being retarded   by  !ack  of  labor.   No      organization  'which aims |to -develop any part.of  '���3riti3h Columbia1 can afford to ignore this most -pressing question.  More labor.is especially  essential  .o the; growth of our dairy, poul-  ry   and   fruit   industries. The  question, is so large, and so important that any influence should be  brought to ibear, to insure that.action is taken to (procure the-necessary labor Tho secretary of this  association has been directed to  colloct ^information from all the'  sources' calculated to show the  handicaps imposed upon 'us by our  lack of labor. This informatipn  and the 'evidence of promine nt  prominent fruit growers over the  whole-of'the.province will ,be presented ipt the annual meeting of  his association held in Victoria  in January next. The recommenda  ions of the .ansociation 'will then  be presented by the provincial .gov  -jrnment and any other action  which seems advisable will be taken. .  Your ico-operatiori in ' the solution 'Of the labor question is asked  ���!n. tho full confidence of a cordial  response;. There can be but one  opinion as to .the urgent necessity  for concerted action.  1 ""~" "*"* * ~"~ "~~ "*'  IX PAYS TO ADVERTISE  Mrs. Ella Johnston is going to  marry Mr. Albert Wil30,n." ,"<Mr.  Albert Wilson is inot going to marry Mrs. E.la Johnston.'" The,s'e;  were the statements issued from  the opposing camps of Johnston  und Wilson.  Mrs. Johnston is trying to make  good her assertion, that she ia go  ing to become Mrs. Wilson by  by standingjon Mr. Wilson's doorstep and''Shooing off 169 other .wo  men who are desirous of marrying  Albert.   She claims a   prior right  Mr. Wilson barricaded in his o.wn  house .and standing pat against  the determined onslought of Mrs.  Jonson,, is bemoaning the cruel  fate���i.e., Mrs. Johnston���that is  keeping him from mingling a-  mongt hs; said other 169 .fair ones  and chosing from; amongt hem the  fairest %of ihim to bear his name  andt hc( right to darn his socks.  Albert tried "the want ad columns in his quest for a wife. He  beimioianed the fact that in all this  world no toving 'heart beat for  h i; alone. He.set forth in his advertisement hat his was a warm  and loving nature, and he pleaded  eloquently for some widow or a  spinster to write and tell him she  would become the light of his life  It pays to advertise.

He admits even  ye,tt hat sh<e was accepted on the  spot aind that u.e agreed to call  for her and take her to the marriage license office and then to a  a minister.  "I didn't knew then though  how much it pays to advertise,"  Albert sak\ to an interviewer who  stood on his front doorstep,, and  between whom and himself Mrs.  Johnston maintained her excellent  strayfcrigic ��� position. "I didn't  know, thatl Itheire^ would be 170 ..women willing to marry mje or I  wouldn't have been -so "hasty a-  b.out accepting the first one.  "And now, she won't go away, il  can't get to-/see them. One hundred  and sixty nine of them ! Th,ink of  that! And I'm afraid if any of thorn  come here 'siie will chase them' a-  way."  .This-gavaicMrs..'Johnston'an op  portunity to be interviewed, ,and,  while &he was inon-conimitta] as  to how(she! would .act toward'any  ft he 190 who might have the temerity to approach her point of  vantage she. lefitno room for one  to doubt as to (her intentions toward   the  captive   ABbert.

Andrew Carnegie wasa   young  mail himself once; he  was     'very-  poor;  ho'had  no  friends;  but he,  possessed   great courage  of   conduct  and  found   out  early   in  his  career that   the  young man  who  liquor for thr^ passing pleasure'it  gives, is, the young man who will  not succeed  iii  the  practical    affairs  of this fife.
