One of the first  acts of the government will be the  introduction of a redistribution bill,  which' will be brought down during  the first week. The' Premier said he  could ��������� not comment upon the proposed changes at present, but plenty  of time would be provided for the,*  fullc-st consideration of the measure.  Other important matters to be  taken up at the coming session include a general revision of the statutes of British Columbia, minor  - amendments- to c.the -. Government  Liquor Act and the determination of  policy regarding the Pacific Great  Eastern Railway.

Labor is scarce and the need is insistent.  The drainage of the Lewis and  Blair property is delayed through a  difference of viewpoint' with the  owners who had agreed to pay one-  'third of the cost. The municipal engineer has taken levels and has how  three alternatives. The first is to  get the owners to contribute the  amount agreed upon; or, to deepen  the ditch further as they suggest;  or, to start over again, this. time  with the municipality as right of  way owners, petitioning for a settlement    under    the    Ditches     and  The following donations havo  been -received during the month of  August ai the M.-S.-A.

THIRD  YEAR   HIGH   SCHOOL  IS  ADDED TO  GRADES*  MATSQUI MAN MADE  VILLAGE   CONSTABLE  MATSQUI, Sept. 4.���������On the recommendation of the Matsqui Board  of Trade, the police commissioners  have appointed J. E.' Thoren to be  -village constable. The board had  no criticism to offer concerning the  existing municipal constables, but  wished to have appointed a man who  was resident in the village.  Secretary Downes reported to his  fellow commissioners that he had  finally received assurance from the  department of. the provincial secretary that an auto license has been issued, free to cover the ' car of the  chief of municipal police. This.certificate has either been lost or sidetracked, but is in existence somewhere. ���������    -'  Tuberculin inspection by Government Veterinary Inspector McKay  shows Matsqui herds to be a healthy  bunch, very few re-actors being discovered.  School opened    here on    Tuesday  with a slightly increased attendance.  Third year High    School    has    been  added to the grades, which will    be  attended by the pupils, of the entire  Abbotsford district.  Mr. P.

Miss Gilley has  charge of second and third year  High; Miss McPhee, Miss Mutrie,  Miss Evans, Miss Archibald and Miss-  Hunt are also teachers on the staff.  Last term six of tho eight rooms  of the school were used, this year  another room has been fitted up for  use, which will amply accommodate  the  pupils. .  GRAND  PRESIDENT WILL  VISIT REBECCAH  LODGE  The regular meeting of Pearl Re-  beccah Lodge was held in the Masonic Hall on Thursday evening,  when plans were made for the holding of anniversary services', to be  held in the Masonic Hall on September 2 0th. It'is expected that the  Mission Rebcccah Lodge ' will take  part in this service.  Tho Grand President of the Re-  beccah Asscmbley of B. C, Miss.Gus-  sie L.

A road may be gazetted in  neighborhood from the Wells  road northward throug-h the centre  of lot 100. Application will bo  made to the Land Settlement Board  for the use of the low level dyke as  a roadway, along that portion from  the southeast corner of the Indian  reserve northward to the Atkinson  road.  The right to use the two crossings  of the B.C.E.R. where the new  Boundary line road will run over  the railway has been granted by the  railway commission. The B. C. E.  It. agree to their public use also,  with certain provisions.' The com-1  pany suggests that the municipality  put in the necessary culverts and  bear all expenses connected with the  .crossing, both now and in the future.  The council does not care to take  this responsibility, not knowing  where it may lead them. Further  information will be sought before  any  conditions are  accepted.  In the accounts presented by the  finance committee, the new .addition to Whatcom Road school is  completed and paid for, also the improvements to the grounds at Huntingdon school, and the foundation  repairs at Musselwhite.  OSAKA, Sept. 5.���������Damage resulting from the earthquake and fire in  the Japanese disaster will cost the  Empire in life and treasure far more  than a first-class war. Estimates  of the death toll range from 110,-  000 to 300,000, while the property  destroyed will cost more than $5,-  000,000,000 to replace. Yokohama,  one of the Empire's first ports, is  wiped off the map; Tokio, a city of  2,300,000 inhabitants', has been so  badly damaged that it will take  years to regain its place' among the  first cities of the world.  Under the able management of  President H. Harrop and Secretary  M. Shore arrangements for the Su-  mas-Abbotsford Annual fall fair  are well in hand. At the present  time it is expected that the stock ex*  hibit may be held in the barn.  The fair will be run for two days;  the 20th and 21st of September. On  the evening of the 21st, a dance will  be held in the theatre hall.  A splendid list of prizes are offered for exhibitors', and a very  large entry list is expected.  TRUE BLUES  WILL   HOLD  .   / RIO-UNION     MEETING  The regular monthly meeting of  Abbotsford True Blue Lodge was  held in the Orange Hall on Monday  evening. General business was transacted and the members decided to  hold a progressive whist drive in the  Orange Hall on Friday, September  14th.  The October meeting will be a reunion meeting and Provincial Grand  Organizer, Mrs. R. J. Pelky of Vancouver,  will attend.  ry|'l^rrcfffrflreTyr""aBa^jMaiareBgaggpaT3:^  BOARD  WTLL  TAKE  OVER  PICTURE  SHOW ON  SEPT.  MAIL  DELIVERY  TN  MAPLE RfDGE STARTS  Sparrow is now  $1.50 per sack.  selling   bran at  PORT HANEY,. Sept. 4.���������On Saturday, Maple Ridge district received  an additional modern convenience,  when a rural mail delivery route  was started. With Haney^ as a  centre, Mr. Sands, postmaster at  Whonnock, now delivers mail daily  over all the main roads in the municipality east of the Town Line  road near Hammond. This route  supplies Port Haney, Webster's  Corners, Yennadon and Albion and  all the residents on the main roads  between these places. As the residents about Whonnock turned down  the proposal, the route does not extend quite to the eastern limits of  the district, but the rest is' now well  provided'for, and the people are relieved of the necessity of going to  the post offices' at the various  centres in order to get their mail.  Miss Minnie Rucker of Kamloops  is' visiting her sister, Mrs. Vannetta  and Mrs. Ruthig of Abbotsford. -  :A regular meeting of the Abbotsford and District Board of Trade was  held on Thursday evening. Discus-  nlons of general interest occupied  part of the session.  On September 19th, the Board  will take over the local moving  picture theatre to raise finances to  carry on various lines of work and  it is hoped that the citizens will give  the picture show undivided support  on that date.  The oiling of the main streets of  the town, during the dusty summer  months' was due to the worthy efforts of the Board. The lighting of  the town streets, an improvement  which they have long been advocating, will no doubt become a possibility brought about by the desire  of the Board to boost Abbotsford  and see it grow.  'Many other needed improvements  can also be secured, which the citizens are eager to obtain, if the proper interest is taken in the Board of  Trade and real support given to that  body.

J. A. BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, 1923  "What fools we mortals be!" would appear  to stand out prominently when we consider  the present methods that deprive the farmer  and the fruit grower of the Fraser Valley of  his just rights in marketing the products of  his labour.  Somebody is awfully foolish when American fruit is purchased in the open markets of  our cities and also on the prairies in. preference to the Canadian fruit. Millions of dollars worth of fruit are brought into the city of  Vancouver each year and sold in open competition to our own. Numerous and various  reasons are given for this buying. Papers from  the Atlantic to the Pacific have written columns about buying in the old home town in  preference to buying elsewhere. A favorite  quotation in these write-ups has been 'keep  the dollars at home.' Even dollars have  been marked and sent round town and traced  from one person to another always buying.  A marked dollar was once sent to an Eastern  mail order house. It was traced for about ten  years but it had not arrived back at its own  home town. The same party would probably  have been tracing it yet, only,he died too soon.  In the buying of fruit it might be a good rule  to adopt the plan of buying B. C. grown fruit  and 'keep the dollars at home'.  Ari estimate has been given that at least  $20,000,000 have gone out of B. C. during the  past year for food.' $20,000,000 spent in the  Fraser Valley would do wonders. It would  help to make the transportation companies  pay bigger dividends and employ more men at  just as good, if not better wages than they are  getting now; it would help the fruit grower  and the dairyman, and also the farmer to  make both ends meet with less difficulty. Half  of that amount put into the Fraser Valley  right now for products would put pep under  the heels of thousands of struggling agriculturists. The man on the land is a wonderful  spender, and most of that money would find  its way back to the city for goods, and B. C.  manufactured goods at that, then be distributed so that next season it would be buying Fraser Valley products again. But the dollars  that go out of B. G. for fruit, vegetables, hay,  potatoes, etc., do not come back to be B. C.  willingly, and it is doubtful if a small fraction of it ever does come back. Americans  do not patronize B. C. except when out' for a  holiday.  If the C. P. R., the B. C. E. R. and the numerous smaller transportation concerns had  more Valley products to haul; if the fruit  grower and the farmer were all prosperous in  the Fraser Valley would it not be worth while  for the people of the cities to try buying B. C.  farm products for one year?' This paper does  not hesitate to say that the present stringency  of money in some coast cities and in the Fraser Valley is owing to the habit of the importation, or dumping of American fruit into the  coast markets..  This idea of saying that the fruit industry  is oniy a small part of the business of Canada  and the grower hardly worth legislating for  by our governments is foolish. Politicians  have told us that if there were no fruit growers Canada would go on just the same. Maybe it would. It is nice to have them help to  develop the country though. The amount of  money invested in agricultural and fruit lands  of B. C. ranks very high with other investment's���������in fact so high, that it is counted as  one of the very largest businesses in the proJ  vince. It is not the fault however of the  householder in our cities and small towns altogether that foreign fruit is competing with  ours. The wholesalers are to blame. He can  make bigger profits in this way than by purchasing B. C. products. The politicians are to  blame. They are not attempting to change  present conditions. They say so long as the  prairie people want American fruit it should  be brought in so that a monopoly will not be  given to the B. C. fruit grower and farmer.  Our politicians, at least some of tliem, want  v������o curry favor with the man back on the  prairie, by lotting him have his own way in  this matter, even if it is to the detriment of  the people of the sister province on the Pacific,    ji'  Onej-would almost suppose that it would be  an easy matter to educate the prairie farmer  as to the benefits that the Fordney Tariff Bill  has been to him. He could be shown how it  has affected his grain market. It could be  shown him how it pulled down the price on his  cattle since the bill came into force. One or  two rattling good speeches should make that  prairie farmer so antagonistic to tlie United  States products that he would rise in rebellion  rather than give his good money for their fruit  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  and vegetables. How that Fordney Tariff Bill  put the prairie on poverty row should not be  hard to explain. : To have B. C. a prosperous  agricultural province would help the prairies; *  but no prosperity of the United States will  ever help any part of Canada.  Let us study our. own interests iii the same '���������  selfish way as the people of the United States  studies its own interests and it would be much  better for us;  Personally, the writer thinks the Wednesday half holiday is a business deterrant, a  nuisance, and a failure. We further believe it  was encouraged and fostered by a few politicians who sought popularity and the support of  "the workers" and without due regard to the  convenience of the public.  The typyographical union and numerous  unions have solved the question of time and  hours to the satisfaction of the workers and  the employers, and the question confronting  the retail clerks is simply one of hours and is  nothing out of the ordinary and one that can  be solved without the aid of legislation or  without inconvenience to the general public.  ���������Trail News.  Premier Oliver and his friend the Minister  of Customs at Ottawa are Oh! so sorry! for  the fruit growers of British Columbia who find  themselves the victims of the dumping of fruit  from the United States. . These political twins  will see it it is not possible to do something  about it  The sorrow how being experienced by these  gentlemen was very easily avoidable. All thau  had to be done was to practice from the beginning the art in which they are now so proficient; that is, to do nothing. The preceding  government at Ottawa had placed on the statute books adequate provision for dealing with  the dumping of fruit so that British Columbia  growers would not suffer; but at the very first  opportunity the Mackenzie King government  cancelled this protection. This was purely  political action, not asked for by anyone in  British Columbia, and least of all by the government's allies from the Prairies.  To their shame be it said, the "Liberals" in  the House of Commons from British Columbia  consented to this betrayal of a most important  industry of their province. Premier Oliver  knew about the betrayal, while there was yet  time to head it off; but he too seemed content  to pay this price for the security of his party  at Ottawa. They are but crocodile tears that  the gentleman sheds now!���������Columbian.  One-third of. every dollar spent in British  Columbia by tourists will ultimately find its  way into rural B .C. because, roughly, nearly  a half of what every tourist spends goes for  food and other products that originate on the  farm.  Of the $40,000,000 spent here by tourists.  during the present season, at least $12,000,000  will go into the pockets of country folk. If B.  C.'s annual tourist income can be increased  by judicious advertising to $100,000,000, rural  British Columbia will be assured of over $30,-  000,000 increased revenue every year.  The campaign for tourists is not a campaign for the increased prosperity of a few  Vancouver merchants and others who come  directly in touch with tourist business. Money circulates.. If tourists spend $100,000,000  here every : year, that $100,000,000 passes  eventually through.the hands of every individual in the province, be he farmer, hotelman,  laborer or mechanic. And the farmer, by the  very productive nature of his calling, must  come in ultimately for the largest share.  Farmers will find it good busienss to back  the tourist campaign with every resource a-  vailable.���������Vancouver Sun.  An ex-governor has the following to say a-  bout the value of a local paper in the community: "Each year the local paper gives from  $500 to $1000 in free lines to the community  in which it is located. No other agency can  or will do this. The editor, in proportion to  his means, does more for his own town than  any other ten men, and in fairness he ought  to be supported not because you like him or  admire his writings, but because the local paper is the best investment a community can  make. It may not be brilliantly edited or may  not be brilliantly crowded with thought, but  financially it is of more benefit to the community than the preacher or the teacher. Understand me, I do not mean mentally, and yet  on moral questions you will find most of the  papers on the right side. Today the editors  of local papers do the most for the least money of any people on earth."���������Ex..  Japan has a population of over   50,000,000  people.  Egypt proper has a   population   of nearly  1000 to the square mile.

TEN RULES FOK  DRIVING MOTOR OAR  Believing that the careful observation of a few simple traffic rules  will materially help safer travel on  the highways, the National Automobile Chamber of Commerce has issued "Ten Commandments of Safety  for Motorists."  1. Always remember you are the  engineer, fully responsible.  2. Always test your brakes when  starting; and have them inspected  frequently.  3. Never pass a street car when it  is stopping, or, if the law permits pro  ceed very slowly past it at the legal  distance.  4 ^Exercise especial care in crossing in front of a street car or in passing it, as you cannot tell what may  be coming on the other side.  5. Always signal with hand when  slowing down, turning', or stopping,  even though you have an automatic  or mechanical warning device.  6. Look before, you back and  sound the horn three times.  7. Try to drive with using the  horn as little as possible. A sudden  noise may stop pedestrians' in their  tracks rather than warning them.  8. Don't count too much on the  common sense of the other fellow  No one is 100 per cent alert all the  time.  9. Drive slowly on streets where  children are playing. Remembei  your own childhood.  10. Cross crossings envtin-"1'-  Warning bells may be out of order,  watchmen or gate operator���������; nay .h  off duty. Trains cannot stop as  quickly as you can. Shift into sec;  ond to avoid stalling on tracks.  Alex, S; Duncan  Barrister     Solicitor  7 Notary Public,  OFFICE  J. A. Catherwood Building  Phone 8601 P. O. Box 00  MISSION CITY, B. C.  Wm.

Unfortunately,- the rain came too late to  materially help the t earlier rasps,  but the' moisture will be beneficial  to later fruit. In most fields the  berries are small and,,in some cases',  not easily cleaned from* the "husk.  Pickers' have not been earning so  much as they would like, and there  has been one or two ' 'strikes' for  a higher rate of pay. A number of  growers have increased the piecework wage from 3-4 to 1 penny per  lb. ��������� The market for rasps is still unsatisfactory. Up to last night 251  tons of'rasps have been railed from  Blairgowrie by goods' trains, and  about 77 tons by passenger trains.  The writer goes on to say that  "Spring frosts followed by a long  shell of.dry weather has resulted in  a poor crop of raspberries. They  are small and in many cases' they  shrivelled up on the canes. Prices  started at 42 pounds' per ton of 2,-  240 lbs. and are now down to 20  pounds to 30 pounds per ton on rail  in cwt. kegs or bbls. A few have  been shipped in chip baskets of- 4  lb. which have returned 60 pounds  per ton of 2,240 lbs. The gross tonnage will be small this year and  prices  low."  Warm weather, mostly bright  sunshine and some showers is  helping the harvesting operations,  which are now general in the three  provinces.  Ih Manitoba, 45 per cent, of the  grain lias been cut, and when  threshing returns are in, the yield  will be found lower than , first expected.  Saskatchewan has a good crop,  especially in the Western part of  Lhe province, about 30 per cent,  has   been  cut.  Alberta has an excellent crop with  about 35 per cent hay. Hay and  fodder crops are good.  There is a more cheerful feeling  amongst' business men and business  is Improving. Tlio. fruit business is  showing improvement all along tho  lino.

The object of this' is to prevent  tlie entry of fruit and melon flies  common in other countries and which  might be brought In on the imported lots. This is going to affect a  number of items which have been  important commercial factors previous to this time.  While announced as a flat quarantine, it is' added that at the discretion of the department, special shipments of fruits and vegetables may  enter the country. <,  REGINA   MARKET   SUMMARY  FIELD'GROWN TOMATOES  For a Bilious Headaeft������  ^brew & cup of Celery ..Ki.Bg-*- V  natural herbs and roots���������a gentle  laxative and. purifier* Tones jap  the liver and stimulates digestion.

There seems to be  considerable trouble from brown rot  in  the   Lower  Mainland.  It will lie noticed there are still  heavy importations of peaches from  across the line although the movement in plums and apricots has  dwindled to almost nothing.' The  apricots' are practically over. As' for  plums the conditions mentioned  above are explanatory.  It was also noticed that there is  still a heavy movement of pears  from Washington most of which are  of the Bartlett variety. The quantity of B.C. Bartletts-on the market  is comparatively negligible.  There is still a small movement of  apples from the U.S. This is composed of small shipments of California G-ravensteins and such varieties  from Washington as have not reached maturity in this province such  as Kings and Mcintosh Reds.  Tho Yakima district of Washington is now shipping Cantelotipes to  this' market largely cutting out the  California product. Small shipments  have also come in from the Lower  Okanagan   Valley.

The new locomotives, which were built at Montreal,  are of the latest type with all news improvements. They are 73 feet in length and weigh approximately  450,000 pounds with a drawbar pull equal to 5,500 tons. The engines, which are for freight use, are  equipped with automatic stokers, Westinghouse air brakes and air reverse and have the new type of  Worthington feeder, water heater and pump. One of the change* in thes newjangine is the cab design, all  mountings being installed in a box outside of the cab instead of inside the cab as in former types.  : Twenty-three of the new engines are coming West for the Manitoba division m time for the beginning of the grain movement and 22 are coming for the Saskatchewan division. An idea of the size of the  new engines may be gathered from the fact that before starting out on a run they require 12 tons of  coal and 8,300 gallons of water to complete their tender supplies. The new engines are all equipped with  the Booster trudc and ten of those to be delivered later will have Booster engines installed. These provide  practically additional motive power on the tender and are of great value in starting heavy trams. The  engines are being placed in service as quickly as they reach the Western divisions.  Plans for securing the utmost efficiency in the despatch of grain  shipments over the Canadian National Railways were discussed at an  important conference of National  Railway officials of the anitoba division held at Port Arthur and Fort  Wililam. The new Neebing Terminal was inspected during the visit to  the head of the lakes.  UNLUCKY SAILING  DAYS.  In the early days of the "barbarian" invasion some 70 years ago,  tke Scottish skipper of one of the  paddle-wheel "fire-boats" plying up  the West River from Hong Kong to  Canton, China, could not understand  why his steamer was almost empty  on a certain return run from Canton.  Next trip the same thing happened.  So it did on the following trip.  A boycott was suspected, until  the owners suddenly realized that  the fifth, the fourteenth and the  twenty-third are the very unlucky  days when no wise man embarks on  a ship, a- journey, or an enterprise.  The sailing fixture list was speedily overhauled, and thenceforth the  cabins were as full as over.  The Terminal Grain Company is  reported to have been organized at  Vancouver B. C, with $100,000 authorized capital and A. H. Gale as  president, to build an elevator there  Tt is stated hat construcion of the  firs unit will be commenced shortly.
