'aisrtf  The suspected murde'uqr, Reid, is  still enjoying the privileges of  freedom, and there is to' all ap-  peuranecs n possibility that he  will remain for sometime, no has  apparently made good his escape  a I least for tho present.  Word reached Abbotsford yesterday that the police were folic wing a clue near Wiekersham,  Wash., that some one had been  calling at camps and asking for  meals. This is being'folloflved to  see what there is in it, but as the  practice of calling for meals at the  different camps by men tramping  is common there may b'e nothing  to the clue at all.  ' There was a short . excitement  here this week. It was reported  that a man had called two days in  succession at'camp No. 2 about 3  nniles east of Abbotsford, for his  breakfast, after the camp was  quiet. He then disappeared completely, as the second time was his  last call. This shows that the clue  near Wickersham may be a false  one. ��������� t  The $500 has put everyone, oji  their qui vive, and the least clue  ��������� makes some people on the manhunt with a vengeance;. The other, morning as. several young -men  were returning"-'"fronv-a 'dance''" at  Mt;- Lehman, they saw in "the dim  morning light a man with, "ihte-a'd  down. The conclusion was speed-���������  ily arrived at that this must be the  man wanted for the Clayburn murder and ,v|3ions loomed :up as to  wha^ the $500 mjghtnotf jpsTCpAaae.  The man was followed, and our  two would-be captors called, ran  and made the woo-ds ring for miles  around with their calls fat. the man  to stop. They, carried no fire arms  to the man was safe from' immediate harm. At last they grabbed  their man and the $500 reward was  apparently theirs, but on close ex-  ex animation they found it was only, a fellow (citizen on his way to  feed his horses. No (names are given, but a'-l are we-,11 known around  the town.  There are various stories afloat  and various people 'imagine, they  saw the murderer. One is, to the  :effect that he, has done away with  himself while another is that Reid  went towards Mission City instead  of south.  It seems plain that the murder  was premeditated. Reid .-was it is  said very careful to find' out the  lay of the land. For days before  he, lost (no opportunity to become  familiarized with the roads lead-  i ing north and south from Clayburn  the distance between the "different points >along the line, and any  information that might in future  be of use' to 'him. .Report .show  be ������o.st no time in 'getting away,  from the residence after it-he murder  was 'committed.  Abbotsford has been :ftiade the  ���������base of the search and ,our town  has during1 the past.-week been the  headquarters for the provincial  po'-kiL1, who arc using-'every, endoa.  vor to locate the much wanted  Reid.  Invitations arc issued for - the  marriage- of Miss Maggie McGiUi-  vray, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M.  McGiHivray', to Mr. S. J. Bastes.The.  \ wedding will take place at the,  familv residence on Wednesday,  September 21st. A reception will  be held in the Maple Leaf Hall.  RETURN FROM ,  *  TIIR  'COMMISSION  Mr. J. W.

Thq" complaint as to tlie trains  on the C. P.

Mr.'McCallum has formed a very  high'-:opinion of the mae'terly way  in'which the chairman of the commission' deals with all matters. He  says the rich man or the company,  hais  no -more  favors  shown them  than -what is ���������'given the  huimblest  petitioner .to the -commiasion.  All  that;.is,required is to have a.good  case���������rone  that  is   fair      between  man and man.   There, is-no necessity for having legal/p leading, and  a  -'good case will  wffii every  time  The-meetings 'of the commission  is .also-conspicuous on account of  the' -num,ber Oif blue iprinits that is  used.

His friends are  a little dubious about believing  his story, as they claim Jim is uot  in a position to .hand out any  ;eaglo high signs, and naturaUy no  self respecting, wolf-bred eajlo  would alilow a rank outsider to  take any privileges with it. The  bird measured from wing to wing  seven feet nine inches and from  beak to tail two feet eleven inches  Mr. Lyle wilil likely have the bird  mounted and presented to the first  earie he joins.

The subject of road building in  the Eraser  Valley   is  a very   important  one   indeed.   Good  roads  meant .much to the future advance  m(\txt   of, ;thi9   important  'distriot.  for upoin good roads depend     the  coming of bona fide settlers upon  'our rLth i'erti e  lands.   The  pros-  px'liye   settler   of   to-day   is      a,  different man from the  old-timer  who took up land imany years ago  Hi will'not purchase and go into  the' woods unless there is a good  road past tho property.   He is usually a  ,m,an \viljh .considerable of  this world's goods���������a man'who is  looking  for   a home   in, (\ jolimate,  Bocond-toi  noi>e~a   man   who   intends to have his horse a;nd buggy  to  drive; to  tho '.nearest'   village  .with the road comforts of an old  er settled -country.  -He  do'es   not  wish to locate in any of the, out of  .way places caused  b,y impassablo-  public highways���������a .good road  is  oris of the important requisites he  demands.    '  Fifty or one hundred years ago  in' the   eastern   provihaes   a setr,  tier was'content to pick out hi.9  choice piece of land and wait for  th;2 i;o.ad to  come.      - He' carvdd  jOut.,a--'homei"for   himself in    the  woods ahd''\vai,ted for'the roads.to.  come". "He walked twenty-five -or  possibly;"doubLe' that ,many  miles'  through the woods by means of a  blazed trait to the nearest market  | carrying - pocsibly   a sack   of flour-  on his'shoulder.   But it is different  in B. C. to-day���������the road must'be  there as soon as,the se-ttler of r.hic  age.   The .comforts of life are  to  be enjoyed and the 'hardships    of  poor  roads   eliminated.   Other inconveniences of a country life tnaiy  | be endured- but' not bad roads.  - Many thousand people,  are js'et--  tiing in the' Canadian  north-west  ���������the prairie- provinces.   They are  from the motherland and ithe 'U.  S.   A-'few -years of-the prairie life,  will be enough form any of them  'Then they seek a milder'cilimate in  which"to' Eperid the jrerixainder of  their d^ays and with a little cap-  'ita'l.   So fa,T. as climate is cotneern  , ed the Fraser Valley is secqnd to  no other, and is somewhat of a r.e-  i,        ��������� , . '  lief after the severe climatic conditions of the prairie, but the good  'roads in any district will place  th.a,t particular part ������of the, Fraser  VaUejy more to the fore than any  other, even though its lands may.    British    contingent.      But  there  are  be  no   better.   There   are   instan-    more days coming, and we hope that  and shod the. fall and winter rains  to the advantage of the road. The  man who can come forward with  a scheme for the building.and tho  maintaining of good roads at little  jost will be doing his country���������  cho Fraser Valley a most wonder  nil   service.'  The lands on' the south side of  the Fraser demand good roads.  Whc^ will bo tho man of the hour?  We  take  Ihii  opportunity      of  most emphatically ,'denying     that  "after Laurier come3 the deluge"  It is  "the pride Of  Quebec"���������the-  Nationals.   o ,  THE  MAGNETIC  WEST.  For those who study jirogress on the  Canadian side ol' the Atlantic, few recent  developments  are  of  more  \i\v,:;-  tfC'Slive Interest than wlial Iu c:illod Llio  '���������invasion" 'of Canada by fanning uot-  - tlurs from tho United SLatos.   The migration of lOrty-al.v thousand men witu  (ii'ty million dollars in  cash  within n  period   of  four  months   in  somotliiiiK  which corlainly givea one furlouKly lo  l.lilnk.    Upon  the whole it   Is not  surprising thai, the process has ho^im to  make patriotic citlzeim of the "llepuh-  lie nervous.    But on many eoilnts wo  regret tho signs of'panic.    Tho Government at Washing-ton is spending a  good deal of money in an effort, to stein  the tide.   But a tide of that sort cannot  be chocked,  any  more  than   man  may hope to chock the tides Hint wash  the Bay of Fundy.   Western aud North-  western Canada have that, lo offer tho  agricultural   settler   to-day   which   no  amount of influence  will  prevent   his  taking  it he  can   got, it.    For  many  years the United States \ve:e fed-by a  steady stream of man-power from the  Old  World.    That -stream  still .runs.  Curiously enough, it is stil fed from  Great   Britain,- despite  the wholesale  migration -'of the   shrewdest   Western  farmers from the Republic into British  North- America. -' It is hardly logical,  and  in any. case1 it is futile, for the  Republic  to  seek  now -to   block  the  overflow,/into   the   marvellously  rich  wheat .-lands , of   Canada;    though   it  would ,be-logical enough for Britain to  exert-systematic effort to prevent British.-agricultural.  migration    into .the  United States, and- deflect.it into the  direct stream to Canada.. After all, the  newspaporsj of the Western Stales of  the Union, which would seem to have  entered into a tacit agreement to damp  the ardor^of their readers' interest in  Western Canada, might remember that  the  United  States   emigrant  to  Canada' almost invariably makes  a good  deal  of money there.-    Some, of- that  inon'eyfinds its way back to the States  with'orders for goods, in railway fares,  presents,  remittances,    and  the  like.  But; aside from that the progress cannot" be-checked,-because it is due to  primary   and -natural   causes,   among  which   the  undeniable  superiority  of  Western ��������� Canadian land plays an important part,' of course.   The carefully-  prepared and circumstantially elaborated stories of the home-sickness and  failure to U. S. settlers in Canada arc  not- really worth printing.    They will*  avail nothing   .against    the .laughing  prosperity of Western Canada, the full  ���������pockets and cheery lavishness of these  'settlers who return to the States on  ���������Winter visits to their old folk.    The  ozie feature of the situation which the  British observer may regret is, ��������� that,  of the new-comers who in four months  of' this  year  arrived   to  claim   their  share in the wealth of Canada's West,  the  contingent,-from  the  States   was  eleven-thousand souls larger than the  m.^ssss^mmmf^%^  Essendene Ave.,  GENERAL MERCHANTS  wwimmih milium i   ���������kwliili'iaiiiiw wiUMi���������!>iiiniiiuifwiini umi nifniiii   i>r������irrwni nar  Only first class   ���������  Groceries,  Dry Goods,-  Flour, Feed, and  Kept in stock  Abbotsford, B; C/  ^BtCKMOR&SS  .cX"-*"  LA-GALL CURE  B������������UR������AKD WOKKpfiORSE  \^TBADLOMARIlvj  STABL  i.ir  IW A IT.WIIPK>G  ll ���������J.tv.u.i a p. in  AXLE GREASE,  HARNESS OIL,   WHIPS,  CURRY COMES,  BRUSHES,   SWEAT  COLLARS,    and also  lilCKMOKE'S GALL CURE, y^^ .."������,. w'r���������������L".������������!������*f������qi������ryr  Cru-c f������v Callw, WohmiJ.'J, nr������rS Fovea npon untirtulw.  : J.

Essendene Ave. and Oscar St.,  CITY  WATCH THIS  SUBSCRIPTION  ANNOUNCEMENT  WILL TAKE CENSUS OF CANADA.  The next census of Canada will be  taken under date of June 1, 1911, and  will embrace the subjects of population, mortality, agricultural/manufactures, minerals, fisheries ' and' dairy  products.  Population will be recorded under  the heads of residence and personal  description, citizenship, nationality and  religion; profession, occupation and  trade or means of living; wage-earnings and insurance; education and  language spoken, and infirmities.   '  . Every person living on June, 1 will  be" entered on the schedule of population by name, as member of a family,  institution, or' household, together with  place of habitation, sex, relationship to  head of the family or household, and,  whether single, married, widowed, 'divorced- ��������� or    legally ��������� separated.     The  month of birth, year of birth and age  at' last birthday will also be recorded.  Entries will be made for each person to show, the country .or place of  pirthr year of immigration to Canada  if born elsewhere, year of naturalization if formerly an alien,, and also 'racial  or tribal origin," nationality  and  religion.   Every person of alien birth  who has become a naturalized citizen  is a Canadian, as well as every British subject with residence in Canada,  as well as every native of Canada who  has acquired citizenship  by -birth  or  naturalization, is also. a Canadian by  nationality.   But there is no Canadian  by racial or tribal origin, unless the  Indians are .so counted.  Every person having an occupation  or trade will be entered for it, but if  employed in the census year at some  other occupation for part or whole  time he will be so recorded also. If  the person is working on own account,  the entry will be so made. An entry is  also required to be made showing  where the person" is employed, as orr  farm, in mill, shop or store, etc.  Wage-earners are entered to show  the number of weeks employed in 1910  at chief occupation; if any,- the hours  of working-' time per week at chief  occupation, or at other occupation, if  any.; the total earnings at other than  chief occupation; and the rate per  hour when employed by the hour.  Entries are required to be made for  each person showing the amount of  insurance held at date of the census  upon, life, as well as against accident  or sickness, together with the cost of  such insurance in the census year.  Under the heading of education and  language records will 'be taken for  every person of five years of age and  over showing the number of months  at school in 1910, and if the person can  read and write and the language commonly spoken by each person. The  cost of education in 1910 for persons  over 10 years of age at college, convent or university is also called for.  The last question on the schedule  of population relates to infirmities. It  calls for a record of each person having an infirmity. If blind, deaf and  dumb, crazy or lunatic, idiotic or silly,  a record thereof will be kept.  During the past summer forest fires  have been devouring tho growth.of  centuries with ruthless rapacity.  Northern Onario, Manitoba and British Columbia have suffered most. Fine  tracts of merchantable timber worth  millions of dollars have been destroyed, square mile upon square mile of  young growth coming on .to supply the  demands of the future has-been wiped  out of existence. In Northern Ontario,  where but'a thin layer of vegetable  mould covers the rocks, the'Soft, oozy  forest floor, the only hope of vegetation and equable stream flow has been  completely destroyed, leaving a cheerless rocky waste for generations to  "omq,, Even if no thought bo given to  the number of lives lost, it. must bo admitted that (ho loss'-'occasioned this  your by forest tiros has boon nothfng  Short, of appalling.  Can nothing bo dono, then, to pro-  vent' this loss? The answer is that,  much enn bo done. Tho solution of  tho problem in indicated In two words  ���������public sentiment. Tho two principal  cniisos of forest tires are campers and  railways, and public opinion: must he  brought to boar upon tueso. Tho tour,  ���������ist-campcr does not at all realize the  extent of Ihe damnge'which his unextinguished camp flro may do. Laws  against leaving camp fires burning are  already on the statute books, but It is  quite evident that their observance  rests mainly with.the tourist himself,  l-To must bo impressed with' the very  Ferlons nature of his offence. Tf a man  sets fire to a building, he is convicted  of arson and sent to prison as a felon,  nut if his unextinguished camp fire  burns down millions of dollars worth  of timber and perhaps destroys human  life as well, he .is, at best,.made to pay  a small fine. When public opinion  views this carelessness of the camoer  as a criminal act and frowns upon him'  accordingly, considerable progress will  have been made in- lessening the number of forest fires from this cause.  But it is the railways that spread'  the most" destruction.   Traversing, as'  they do/the great lone stretches of-uninhabited timber, areas,    the'   sparks  from the locomotfVes start- numerous  fires that gain great headway before  being detected.    Too often the right-  'of-way,  piled thick'  with ��������� inflammable  rubbish,  furnishes    a tinder-box    for,  these   conflagrations'. / The , owner   of  destroyed property along, the line has  'found it almost impossible under the  present laws to get damages from the  railway company, so difficult is it to  fix the responsibility, and so expensive j;  is the process of litigation.    In order  :o lessen the number of fires due to this  cause,  the  Committee  on  Forests  of  the  Commission' of Conservation  has  proposed to make the railways pecuniarily responsible.   It has recommended  that there be added  to the  Railway  Act a clause making them liable to a  fine of $1,000, recoverable by- summary  prosecution before a stipendiary magistrate or two justices of the  peace,  for every fire started by sparks from  their locomotives.   It makes no difference whether the fire begins outside  the right-of-way or spreads therefrom  to  adjoining land.    The railways are  exempt   from   this   fine   if   they   can.  show that they have the best modern  appliances on their locomotives to present the emission of sparks, that their  employees have not shown negligence]  in   conducing  to the  starting  of  the  fire, and that, they have maintained an  efficient aiyi properly equipped staff of  fire-rangers.   In other words; the Committee proposes to lessen the number  of fires caused by sparks' from locomotives by having the railways fined for  the damage they do, unless they take  every  possible precaution to prevent  such    damage.    This    is obviously a  fair recommendation as regards both  the railways and the public, and the  effort to have it made law is worthy  of public support.   Every Canadian is  deeply interested in the protection of  our forests; for each forest fire means  that he and his children will have to  pay higher prices for every foot of lumper they use.   Such a measure, for the  preservation   of  our  forests,  as  that  recommended   by  the   Committee   on  Forests    of the    Commission of Conservation  should, therefore, commend  itself to every public-spirited  citizen  and newspaper in Canada.  e������m  Hrt .'II ihl'i' Jiffi  Wfflr^w^H������EAm^^^  ABBOTSFORD, B.

They have been there ever since, but  they long ago abandoned panning the  uncertain sand for the less romantic,  but more productive life of making a  living out of the soil.  The following is a list of the men  and their ages: Phil Grinder, Big Bar,  age 89; James Dickie, Lillooet, age 86;  F. LaRochelle, Lillooet, age 86; Bill  Rilej', Lillooet, age 76; Tom Harris,  Lillooet, age 74; W. W.'Wycott, Beaver Dam, age 88; Calvin Boyle, Beaver  Dam, age 76; P. Soues, Clinton, age 80;  G. S. Peters, Bridge River, age 76; W.  Saul, .Clinton, age 74; Owen Williams,  Seton Lake, age 76; Joseph Watkin-  son, Big Slide, age 70; George Tinker,  The Fountain, age 76; Phil Garrigan,  Pavilion Mountain,  age 81.  The combined ages of these fourteen  men amount to 1,114 years, with an  average of just about 79 years for  every man.���������Journal.  \'{$  I  vfl  Ift  V-  1  Hi *  i  !'!
