Now that prohibition has become  law of I ho land and-will come into  force on October 1st,.this is a good  deal of discussion going on as to the  exact scope of tho British Columbia  law. In the year which has elapsed  since the prohibition party flooded  the country with literature and its  'speakers expounded the bill from the  platform and pulpit, a good many  people have forgotten t'he salient  points of the. new bill.    ,  The  new'bill  is  the  same 'bill���������  without a single material alteration  except as to the date when it is lo  become law���������as that which was pass-s  ed" by the Legislature of 1916, and  scut on to be decided by referendum  of the people.    As reemicted it provides that after the.first day of October there shall be no liquor sold for  consumption within the Provice    u-  British Columbia except through government vendors, who are to be paid  by salary, and who can sell only to  certain limited classes of persons under rigid  restrictions.    The  government vendors, under pain of dismissal and conviction are forbidden    to !  sell,liquor, for-consump-t..'x,n as a beverage/.   They can only sell alcohol  for mechanical and    scientific    purposes, alcoholic    liquors   in    limited  quantities    to    druggists, .   dentists,  physicians, veteriharies, hospital superintendents for    medical   purposes,  and  to  ministers  of  the  gospel  for  sacramental  purposes.  Five gallons is the limit which a  druggist may purchase at any time,  two quarts the limit for a physician;  one pint the limit for a dentist, and  one gallon the limit for a veterinary  surgeon. Provinsion is made that  any person may procure liquor for  medicinal purposes, but it must be  on a physician's prescription, and only one purchase can be made on one  prescription. Outside of these classes and conditions the sale of liquor  for consumption in the province is  absolutely forbidden.  Nothing in the act forbids or interferes with the right of any person to import from without the province liquor for his own bona iide use  in his private dwelling house, nor  does the act interfere with the right  of any licensed person to keep liquor  for export trade.  The anomaly which allows people  in British Columbia to purchase liquor from the prairie provinces .and  allows people in the prairie provinces to buy from British Columbia liquor dealers arises from the fact that  trade and transportation are placed  by the British North America Act under the control of the Federal Govern  went. Thus while each of the western provinces can and has enacted a  prohibition law for each of their own  people, they have been powerless to  prevent their people from importing  or exporting liquor.  In anticipation of the passage of  the British Columbia Prohibition Act  a number of mail-order liquor firms  have b en started in the prairie provinces to supply householders who  wish to keep a private supply of liquor  in  their  homes   for  bona  fide  use.  In order to prevent abuse of this  right the new act gives the police tho  right of entry and search into premises where it is suspected liquor is  kept for sale, or to seize liquor in  transit from the possession of railway  steamboat or express companies  where it is suspected the liquor    is  -1    "      MUST l'AY LICENSE  Merchants of Abbotsford Who Solicit  Trade is ]Matsqui Are Undoi' Bylaw  ML.   Lehman, Sept.  4.���������Merchants  or 'Abbotsford or outside municipalities   who   solicit   trade   on   Matsqai  municipality  wi.'l  h.we     to    comply  ��������������� ith ilic trade license, bylaw thai, recently came into effect.    This question was raised at a previous council  meeting and the matter was referred  to the solicitors,    /.t the meeting of  the council, held in the municipal hall  at Mt. Lehman last Saturday a letter was received from Messrs Cecil  Killam and Jas. E. Beck, lawyers of  Vancouver, in which they stated that  while the bylaw is not very consistent, as apparently clauses one and  two do not agree in the use of verbs  there is no doubht but that the retail  merchants either from the townsife  fAbbotsford)  or from outside municipalities cannot trade or sell or otherwise transact their business within  the municipality without being amenable to  the bylaws.    This  does not  mean, the solicitors wrote, that they  have to have a store within the coun  oil's jurisdiction.  . On the other hand  if Matsqui residents purchase goods  in  Abbotsford,  etc.,  and  then  have  Diem  delivered  to  their houses the  council can collect no license fee.    If  the tradesmen send their agents into  the 'municipalities'"and   there  make  con tracts of sale, then they are within the bylaw.    It may be difficult to  always determine just when it is possible to  tax  them,  but ��������� the  council  may-take'their own judgment generally in deciding whether the business  in this particular case is being done  within the limits of the municipality,  but a mere delivery will not be sufficient.    On the  motion  of  Councillor Aish, seconded by- Councillor Owen, it was decided that legal proceedings should be taken against any or  all firms violating the trades license  bylaw.  WILL PDHOIBITION HAVE  BAD AFFECT ON BUSINESS?  NOT AT MISSION  CITY  There will be no reporting station  at Mission City when the day comes  for the young men and widowers to  report under the new conscription  act. There will however be one at  Haney, some eighteen miles away,and  another at Abbotsford some six miles  away.  To the latter place most of the  men between the called for age will  have to report.  ���������No appointment was made for Mission City, it is understood, because  it was claimed that all eligible young  men had already gone to the fron:.  Of course we feel battered but we  would like to call Sol. J. D. Tay-  or's attention to the fact, that there  are still a few in the district who  will no doubt join up being in every  way ill. U. should be made easy for  them as their feet are probably already sore.  For the sake of past service some  think Mission City should have been  named among the mobilization centres.  being  imported   for   illicit  sale.    In!  such a case the burden of proving his  innocence is cast upon the owner   of  the liquor.  Penalties are provided for all manner of breaches of the act and wide  powers of search given to the police.  Provision is made whereby the unsold  stocks of liquor in existence whan the  act comes into force may be taken  over by the government to form the  initial stocks for the use of the government vendors, whose names have  appeared.  Many people are wondering what  will happen on October 1st when prohibition will come into force.  ��������� One thing we are ,sure of and that  is that on that morning there will  be a ,lot of people with 'sore heads'  and aching voids that that canot be  appeased over the bar.  Another thing that we are almost  sure  of  that  many  of  the  country  hotels will close up business.    It   is  reported that both hotels in Mission  City intend to close their places    of  business.    The   hotel   at' Abbotsford  will most probably be closed.    And  these are only instances of what may  be expected throughout the province.  The travelling public will have to do  without the usual good meals at their  plopping places, unless some good Samaritan comes to the rescue and pro- ^  vides a stopping place lor those who  have to stop  in a town other than  where their home is.  In this respect the country places  throughout the province will suffer  more than the cities.  In our own town, without hotels,  the hospitality of the people will have  to be extended to the traveller, until  business adjusts itself again and a  place provided.  *   Liquor, people In'Vancouver think;  that the  tourist traffic into British  Columbia will drop off as a result of  the abolition of thhe sale of liquor.  This summer British Columbia    has  obtained about four times the tourist traffic of any other year since 1912  The. Empress Hotel in Victoria is always full, all wings being open for  the   first   time   in   four  years.       A  stream of autos pour across the international boundary line    every    daj^  Records show that during May, June  and July more than    3000    entered  Canada at Blaine and the daily average was more for August.    One great  attraction to the American  tourists,  claim  the  liquor  interests,   was  the  excellent  hotel  system, in  this province.    Phohibition     will     probably  mean the disappearance of many    of  the good hotels and- the rise cf the  indifferent rooming-house which has  for several years also  been  blamed  for bad social conditions, from which  most of the hotels are free.  Another few months will see, it is  argued, the transformation of two-  thirds of Vancouver's hotels into  rooming houses with stores underneath.  The liquor people of the province  are confident that they will be able  to obtain the appointment of a compensation board from the Provincial  Government, following the references made to the matter in the house  while in session last month. The  compensation sought will be to cover  fixtures, leases, stocks and contracts.  Nothing is to be asked for goodwill  or business loss. Had the government given until the end of the year  it would have been better business for  the adjustment of business relations  in regard to leases and contracts.  Now that prohibition is to come  into force it is hoped that provision  ' has been made law that it will be  i enforced, to the full extent of the  law. If prohibition is good we want  all the benefits that can be obtained  fiom it. We want no joints where  stuff, called liquor can be procured.  The B. C. Telephone claims that by  its present charter it has the right to  put up its poles where it likes.  The telephone question is one of  the big municipal matters that the  Sumas council has to deal with. THE vAB&OTSFORD POST. ABBOTSFORD, K b.

A. BATES," -        - ������Sfter and Pre praetor  FRIDAY,  SEITEi\il,OIL  1917  Matsqui  Municipality lias put inio  i'orco a bylaw taxing all who do business   in   the   municipality.     No   such  i.a.v  oyer yet'was  pt  into  force  and  worked   satisfactorily.    A   few   years  ago the city of Cumberland passed    a  ��������� bylaw (axing all the commercial travellers who did business, in 'that town.  A i\'.w came to the .holerjust oulsido  ,   of the town and invited over the merchants to look at their goods; a few  of the wholesale houses paid the expenses   of   the   larger   merchants   10  Nanaimo   to   sell   them   their  goods.  The .city lost a lot of money in  this  way and soon the tax on tho statute  books of the city  was ignored,  and  the.travellers came back with a happy' smile.  In theory such a tax looks all right,  but in practice it is a hoodoo. in  theory it looks though the man who  ��������� comes into a district to solicit trade  gels- all the benefit,' but in practice  (he benefits are extended also to the  resident of the municipality who does  business with the solicitor.  Numerous municipalities of the  Fraser Valley have passed trade  license bylaws, in the days gone by  but the present councillors of those  municipalities have forgotten that  such a bylaw is oh the books. Matsqui council should wake up!  belongs to.'the Hcarstian type of journals. , .It has managed to exist so-far  '<jy resorting to charlatan lottery  kohomes to attract readers. Now that  it. has the morning field lo itself we  p.ope if will mend its ways.���������Grand  Forks Sun.  Few men. says the Youth's Companion, are worth'more, than a thousand dollars a year from their shoulders do.wn. Those who get the big  salaries do their work above ��������� the  i boulders.  Those wiio want a little brandy for  liicir Christmas pudding should not  overlook the fact that prohibition will  be in force on and after October 1st.  The past fruit season in this district has been a good one- for the  ��������� grower and he is the better off financially' than he has been for some  years, and we have, heard a number  of them express their satisfaction at  the results-attained.  It is pleasing to note the state of  ��������� affairs that makes the grower .smiie  as  he feels  his bank account swell.  ' But it is the result of the little organization that has taken .place during the past two or three years. And  it is bur firm conviction that if every  grower would combine    with    every  other .grower  and   make   for  themselves, :��������� better  marketing and  selling  conditions-1���������conditions    that    would  ���������place'.'the,,price on the fruit by local  men. instead of the middlemen of tin:-  prairies, tiiat bank    account    would  be much bigger.    The    bigger    and  better the organization    the    bettor  .times it will bring to the grower---  and then he most likely will get the  ���������full benefits of his work for the tilling of the soil and  the growing oi  berries.  " ''."Billy", recently Jdge, McTnncs  ;t is reported has resigned lo enter  ihe political arena. He was there  once before and got his name into  the Toronto Globe. Later he entered  B. C. politics, but quit at' a time  when his services' to the provincial  Liberal party was most needed. Many,  good Liberals were quite sore at him  as they thought he was then just  the man to stem'tho tide of McBride-  ���������sin. Shortly after there was hardly  a Liberal opposition in the local  house. But now that the Liberals  are again to the fore "Billy" comes  back smiling.' He is a good platform  speaker and was very popular once  with the people of the Comox-Atlin  district. If "Billy" Sloan resigns  from the local,house and runs in:the  city of Nanaimo, there will be two  popular Billies boosting for the Liberals.  There are The Coquitlam Times,  The Sun,-Grand Forks; Sun, Vancouver; The Review, Revelstoke, none  of which come forward to defend the  Oiiver-Brewster government in the  levying, of the surtax���������a tax which  hits the poor man for the benefit of  the corporations.  A PATHETIC STORY  "Dar she go!'-' said the hungry  sr'ambo as he heard the whistle blow  in the canning factory and saw.the  workers troop forth with ,tin pails in  their hands; "dar she go! Dinner  lime for some folkses��������� but jest  twelve  o'clock  fur  me."  Many criticisms are being levelled  at the new elections act of the Dominion, while not a few are quite in  fuvji of It The only trouble we  see about it is that there is still too  much politics about it and not enough patriotism.  "These are war times, says the  Grand Forks Sun, "and grants should  be eliminated where they are not absolutely required. The money is  need'-d to win the war, if we do not  ���������������������������ant to liv.: ������������������ I'dc-r the domnnuloii  of Hun rule.

WAS DOWN SOUTH  The people of Vancouver have not  displayed very good discriminating  judgment in allowing the NewsAd-  vertiser to die for want of business,  after a life of thirty years of usefulness, thus leaving the morning field  to tiie Morning Suu. The News-Advertiser was clean and reliable, editorially intellectual, and devoid of  nauseating sensationalism.    The Sun  ��������� (From Fraser Valley Record)  While on his annual trip, this time  to California, Mr. J. A. Lampard sent  this paper a nice long letter,  San Francisco, California.  September 3rd, 1917.  Dear Mr. Editor:  As I thought perhaps some one  would like to know how I am enjoying my trip south, I am sending  you just a few remarks to enable  y.'iu lo say that this is the first prize  trip   of  my  whole   life.  T left Mission on the 8.50 train  Tresday morning and took the ob-  Ki.'t'vai.ion car.  The morning was delightful and  l'.i;> sweet breath of the woodlands  p'M-l'umed with pine an d birch aud  l>:ilsain  was  most refreshing.   .  I did not stay longer in Vancouver  titan to catch my boat and then a-  way over the Inlet blue as the gay  fields of the sky and famed by health  ���������laden breezes born far out at sea.  No note of sadness. I even failed  to hear the sad voice of the syren  that warns the mariner'when, fogs obscure the shore. All seemed gay and  happy on board and as I was all a-  loney I sat me down to muse in solitude, when slap upon my shoulder  and then an old friend asking how  would the trains at Mission get along  and I away, and soon I found that 1  was quite widely recognized among  the passengers, and had many friends j  there. I did not, stay long in'Victoria but-pushed on to Seattle .and  as the sun to' bye, bye went most  glorious to behold each wave and  riffle of tlie sea just'looked like liquid  gold. But away under the shelter of  the Grand Olympics a long cloud of  of fog had formed- and hid the yon-  ler shore and the breeze came coh.  and cutting; but soon we came to a  clear bright sky and the gay moon  shone out on high and lit the sea in  sparkling form, diamonds in millions  stem to stern.  About 9 p. m. we arrived at Seattle; indeed a most beautiful sight.  Her hills:, all bright with streets of  stars stretching from sea to points a-  i'ar, the restless' sea sighed on the  shore and on the land the city's roar.  Next day I was away to Portland,  the beautiful city .of roses. The rail  takes along a most beautiful and  fertile valley though suffering now  from want of rain yet there were  signs of full abundance..  I  only stayed  a  day in" Portland  and   then  away  to     San.    Francisco  which  took  us  3 4  hours.    A     most  beautiful country varied-   with    fieh  and forest, rivers with green valleys  and again  dry parched    grass    and  stubble; groves of plums and peaches  and  patches  of  hops  and .corn,   the  first day passed-, the last of August,  yet still we rushed along.all through  the moil lit night and then, the bright  first morn ot' sweet September, found  us in the wild rugged, barren canyon  of the Sacramento river..    Oh, what  a  beautiful  vision,   but no  products  here the barren hills afford, but gold  and  copper the old    earth's    miser  hoard.    I saw one man .washing for  gold away down in the canyon,  the  train creeps, and. twists like a great  brown   snake   along   the   steep   hill  sides until at Redding the Valley opens  out ��������� into  a  broad  fertile  plain.  The land-around the station had been  kept-well watered and the trees looked  fresh,  one tree was  a fair-sized  sweet  chestnut.      But     under     the  spreading   chestnut. tree   no   village  smithy stood but several hoboes lying  round in restful slumberous mood.- A  group of iig trees also attracted them  and under one of these a .hobo  lay  stretched-at full-length.. I .was look-  ing-out of the window at him when  he arose- and-came unto    me.       He  looked very straight at me and a look  of recognition flashed1 in    his     eye.  "Hello,  old  timer"  says  he.   "What  are  you  here  for?    I  suppose   you  don't remember me?" I said, yes I  have a faint remembrance. Are you.  Nathaniel y because I saw thee when  thou wast under the. fig tree.      He  said Nathaniel something with a distinctive sound of,"h" in it. It was not  a word of celestial sound and-at once  sought the cool shadow of the chestnut tree, and away we sped out into  the broad and picturesque part of the  Sacramento, valley.    Now all. dry and  parched  but- with -strong    signs-, of  great  fertility when the rains were  abundant.    Lots of large oak trees  standing iu stately form as they lent1  their shadows  to  the  thirsty earth.  Hoo,   hoo,   hoo,   hoo,   and   away  we  go  among  oaks  In   fine  abundance.  Some-young    and    virile, some    big,  strong and   sturdy,  and  some,   alas  hare of iirab, and sallow of leaf even  as   wo   all   must   fade  as   old   Time  marches  on   but  sadness  is  not  my  natural man'er, as sorrow never comes  too late and happiness to quickly flies  and there to raise a happier strain of  thought,   lots   of   happy   little   grey  squirrels came racing out from somewhere  tail   on  end,   hi   tally  ho-  a-  way to tin' great oak shadows.    Now  lots  of  turkeys  running  about  like  wild and on nqw to the peach orchards laden with" fruit in gay abundance, and, what I have not seen for  many years, fine teams of mules at  work on irrigation ditches; then oh!  the wide fields ��������� of stubble and again  the green fields of alfalfa, and where  irrigation    has    been    accomplished  great wide'fields of young rice. And  on along the great dry wide valley-  stretching like a prairie for oil!  far.  At last we are in Oakland, then over  the  ferry to    gay    San     Francisco,  bright and beautiful and where be it  city or sea or sky it was picture both  and  poetry.  Yesterday I had a right royal day1:  in cars, gay with happy tourists takr  hood.  In  the morning to    Golden r  ing-in tlie sight of all the neighbor-seek ih-j S'./o'oi.neaa, but of course   .to  droving old black'beetles looking for  dirt they may only see that in verses which L greatly question was ever  Robbie's at all. .Anyway my life has  put me off right,here.     Then ,to the   been  sweeter for him  and  at some  Gate park most lavish in its' beauty.  Talk-'of   the   prophets   of   Paradise,  beach, the glorious shore, there with  white surf and ocean's roar���������tlie  mightiest ocean of the earth, dances  hev waves in happy mirth, but us  3obbie, '-.{urns said: "Here my muse  her wings must cower such flights  are far beyond her power." Aye and  as I return through the lovely drives'  of the park, who did I seri but Robbie Burns himself jus! perpetuated  in statute and as I cast my eyes a-  round, why there were the woo modest crimson tiped bowers, ,(ho real  gowans best angling all the. bright  green grassy lawn around his feci  and looking up iu happy brfghtiKW  at him as much as lo say "vVc-v.l  'Hobble!

It may be a slight exaggeration, but the opposing lawyer seizes it and uses  it to impress upon the jury that this witness is  hot reliably.  The Advertiser to-day is on the witness stand.  If he makes mis-statements he is judged accordingly and his entire advertising is mistrusted.  Wide-awake business men realize this. They  tell the truth in their advertisements; not because  they are better than they used to be; but because  they have learned that it pays.  The advertising columns to-day contain real,  dependable information that will save rnoncfey for  you if you follow them.intelligently.  !���������*������������  COPYRIGHTED   lBMflHlW     ^-^SlX      tfl?
