ADDS ANOTHER TEACHER  TO THE HIGH SCHOOL  At a meeting of the teachers and  the school trustees held on Thursday  evening it was decided to add an  assistant teacher to the staff of the  high    school. Principal     Hughes  found after organizing his classes  that he would have to have some 5L  pupils in his room, part of them to  take up the high school work and  the rest the entrance work. This together with the inspection attached  to the principal's duties was' almost  more than one man could accomplish"  satisfactorily to his own credit and  the credit of the school. The trustees after consideration of the matter  decided to have a second teacher assist in the high school.  The staff of the Abbotsford high  and public school will be two teachers in the high , school, and fiva  teachers and the principal in the  public school. All the room's' in the  school are now filled, and considering the present growth of Abbotsford and district it looks as though  additional school accommodation  will be required before the end of  the present school year.  /The new principal has about completed organization work to his satisfaction, and the parents of the district may look for excellent results  for the coming year. ^Principal  Hughes conies to us with an excellent record as a teacher and disciplinarian, and with the able assistance  of his experienced staff, intends to  make Abbotsford school rank high a-  mong the best schools of the'Valley.  AGRICULTURISTS   VISITED  THE   SUMAS  DYKTNG   AREA  A number of expert agriculturists  headed by Dean Clement of the B.C.  University arrived in Abbotsford  this forenoon on their way to a visit to the Sumas Dyking area.. There  were some twenty in all. The S.S.B.  had charge of the party.  ,A well attended meeting of the  Board of Directors' of the M.-S.-A.  Hospital was held on Monday evening. . Those present included .the  president, R.. L. McCulloch, . the  secretary,' T. Bennett, Mrs. H. Fraser and'Messrs. RIc Go wan, ��������� Coutts,  Peck, Seldqn and Dr. Swift. General  business was transacted and accounts  passed. It was the opinion.of those  present that proper hours for visiting should be. arranged for "the libs'-'  pital and it was decided that from 2-  to 4 in. the" afternoon and 7 to,9  in the evening daily, should be tlie  visiting hours, except in special  cases. The secretary was instructed  to  have  this  information  published."  A splendid report of the Hospital  Association Convention recently held  in Penticton was given by Dr. Swift  and R. L. McCulloch. The Board tendered these gentlemen a hearty vote  of thanks and appreciation 'of the  fact that they had defrayed their  own expenses. It was mentioned at  the Convention by Dr. McKochnie  and other prominent doctors that  the M.-S.-A. Hospital was' one of the  best equipped in the province for  its size. It was strongly endorsed  by the Convention that trio Government be asked to increase the  hospital share of the liquor profits'  from 25������ to 50$ per day. This  would be a great assistance to the  hospital. It has been arranged that  a tag day be held at the Matsqui Fair  in aid of the M.-S.-A. Hospital.  The Board passed a resolution of  appreciation for the splendid work  of Miss Wilson, who has been relieving nurse at the M.-S.-A. Hospital  during the past three months.  ITALIAN  WOOD  CARVINGS  PRESENTED TO CHURCH  The gift of two beautiful Italian  wood carvings has been given to St.  Mathews Church from a friend of  Mrs. F. S. Thorn. The carvings,  which are of pear wood, . are the  work of an Italian artist, Vincent  Moroder, and represent two incidents  in the Passion of our Lord, viz.,  "Christ before Pilate" and the "Descent from the Cross." The donor  while travelling last summer in the  Italian Tyrol came ocross a set of  sixteen beautifully carved wooden  Stations of the Cross, which were set  up in the forests of a mountain side,  haying been carved by a young artist as a thanksgiving offering for  preservation in the Great War. The  traveller had the artist prepare  three similiar carvings and sent two  of them to Abbotsford.  It was the wish of the donor that  the carvings be set up in the open,  but on account of the rainy climate  it has been decided to place them inside of the church. Those who have  already viewed these works of art  are very much impressed with their  beauty. ���������  About forty cars' paid Abbotsford The roadway between Abbotsford  a flying trip this morning on an ad- J and St. Nicholas' is being brushed  vertislng expedition into Canada, for out, which will make a great differtile benefit of the    Sumas  Fair.

Haslett, president of Vancou~  ver and District Football League and  Mr. Hutchinson. .,,    "  Officers elected for the ensuing  term were, as" follows: Honorary  president, C. A. Haddrell, Abbotsford  B. C.; Honorary vice-president,  George F. Pratt, Abbotsford, B. C;  President, J. DeCannonville, Lang*  ley Prairie; Vice-president, W. A.  Stafford,"Mission/ City; Secretary-  treasurer, J. C. Bailey, Clayburn;  Council member to the B.C.F.A.,  Lieut.-Colonel A." L. Coote, Vancouver.  The clubs comprising the league  include Clayburn, Langley United  and Mission. The name of the  league was changed from Fraser Valley Senior Amateur Football League  to Fraser Valley"'Senior Amateur- Association. and:'this association has  affiliated with the British Columbia  Football Association and will have  control of football under'the B.C.F.  A. in the Fraser .Valley District. The  District Governing of the Fraser Valley District wilL,be comprised of. the  President,. ,Vice-I?r'esident, Secretary-  treasurer,'' Cou'riM'i" member to the  B.C.F.A. and one delegate from each  club. The Haddrell 'Cup, as in the  past, will be emblematic of the Association. Championship. The Paken-  ham Cup will be emblematic of the  championship of the Fraser ,Valley  District and the winners of this club  shall be eligible to compete for the  Daily Province Cup, emblematic of  of the Province championship. Any  amateur clubs situated in the Fraser Valley Districts, which has' joined the B.C.F.A. is eligible to compete for the Pakenham Cup; but it  does not have to be a member of the  F.V.F.A. (meaning that only three  clubs, as above, can play for the  Haddrell Cup in the championship  schedule but the Pakenham Cup is  open to clubs outside of the above  three).  In the past it has been very difficult to obtain referees in the Valley. One season this-question was  tried to be solved by obtaining ref- ,  erees from Vancouver, but it was  found that this procedure was too  expensive. - The present Board of  the F.V.F.A., through the good offices of Mr. J. Haslett, has made arrangements with a well known referee from Vancouver who will hold  a series of meetings in the Valley in  order that local men may be developed for this very important adjunct  to the game. It is hoped that all  past players and persons interested  in the games who would like to help  along football will send their names  to the secretary of the F.V.F.A. At  the conclusion of these lectures the  Referees Travelling Examining  Board of the B.C.F.A. will hold a  meeting in the Valley for the purpose of examining candidates and  will award certificates according to  the candidates classification.  The President, Sec.-Treas., Messrs.  Cairns, Arnold and D. Galliford were  appointed as a schedj/.e and Constitution Committee.  Plans are being made to have the  opening game on Sept. 29th. It is  also planned to arrange a series of  friendly games with teams from the  Vancouver and District League and  the Vancouver Wednesday League.  Teams from these leagues, will play  at different places in the Valley  with Valley teams all during the  playing season. ,  CLAM BAKE AND BON-FIRE  HELD AT BIRCH BAY  =f  Mr. and.

A. BATES, Editor and" Proprietor  FRIDAY,   SEPTEMBER   M,   1923  All eyes are turned on Vancouver and  B. C. as a new field for the exploitation of the  tourist, since the opening of the Pacific Highway a few days, ago; and Vancouver with  its advertising scheme is sure to reach a harvest, when the tourist learns, of the beauties  of this province. What will help Vancouver  will also help the Fraser Valley and the  rest of the province for money that comes  into the province and stays here for circulation and use in buying products from the  grower or producer, and the manufacturer  is sure to enrich us all.  Last week we quoted an editorial from the  Vancouver Sun which has naturally come in"  for a lot of comment by. the grower of farm  products..  It read.as follows:  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 daring  the present season, at least $12,000,000 will go into  the pockets of country folk. If B. C.'s annual tourist inc me 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  increased, prosperity.for 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, hoteln;an,,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 business to back the  tourist campaign with every resource available.  We like the spirit of the quotation, as do  all those interested in the farming.community of this province, but the first paragraph,  we think is absolutely wrong for the simple  reason that the food products which the tourist does buy in Vancouver is not.. nearly' all  B. C. grown. Whose fault this is we .are.;not  prepared to say, but we have a very fair idea,,  so has. some of the fruit growers of this province,' and also some of the other men who produce from the land. Otherwise.the spirit of  the article is just right; further if everyone in .  Vancouver was as good a booster for the B. C.  agriculturist as the Sun', things would be a lot.  different. ���������  It should not take   much   education to,get  the B.C. people to prefer and.buy B. C. fruit,  almost entirely, and Vancouver should be;the  first market supplied   by the. .farmer's of this  province, irrespective of the fact, .that a   few  cents more can be   obtained by   shipping to.  the prairies; and it should   not be too impor.r  tant to the consumer that a few   cents more  is paid for B. C. products than would be paid  for the foreign product, so long as the money  goes back to   provincial   people   who   spend ,  their money here.   It is all the same as buy-.,  ing .from the mail order   houses and   making  your money in B. C, sometimes   from   taxes  collected to pay the price.  We wonder why it is that the young people  of our province do not   wish to   stay   on the  farm, don't we?.  They have more than their  fathers had in. the way, of social amusement,  but.some say they are not satisfied.   A yisit  to Vancouver, to .Victoria,. or .to. any   of; the  coast cities to the south of us might give an  inkling.   Many, young people liave cars these  days which are used for pleasure! It is bought  with that object in view, and if they are able  to     pay     the     bill,     why  . should     they  not have one?     Naturally in   the course,   of  their wanderings from one  place  to another  they visit the larger centres.   They find that  the Ford, the Overland, the    Chevrolet, the  Nash, the Oldsmobile, or any other, make of  a car rides ^much nicer oyer the   paved, roads  that lead out from the cities, .than these same  cars ride over   some of   the   rocky,   rough,  nerve-racking, muddy half finished roads of  the,country.   Some of them figure that they  have only to go through life   but once. Some  of them figure up the cost of   Wear and tear  over the country roads as compared with, the  paved streets.   Then they   figure   up   what  the difference of their earning power would  , be in the city as compared with their earning  power in the country.     Then, they say, let's  get a job in town.   Then away they go to the ,  city..   There is more to the social side of life  today than there ever w'a's, and the more we  have the more we want.   This is not the satisfying age, and we are all looking more and  more (at ieast most of lis are)    for pleasant  surroundings   close to   our   work.    Give us  more and better roads   and see if it does not  make a change.  Kamloops has become quite excited over the reported decision to. adopt the Hope-Priueoton route of connecting the Interior with the Coast motor, highways.  Kamloops wants the Fraser river canyon, intends to  get it, and has a committee with propaganda working at top speed.  About six years' ago   Kamloops    started     off    at  fever heat for a like purpose.   It sent a large   delegation to the Good Roads convention at North Vancouver and managed to get a motion put through to its  liking.   The question was not fully placed    before the  meeting, as there were practically no representatives  from the lower'   Interior cities.       This motion    was  not taken   kindly   to by    . advocates   of    the   Hope-  Princeton route, and the matter came up at the Good  Roads convention at   Nelson a    year   or    two    later.  Kamloops delegates recognized      that the preponderance of those present was for the    lower    route and  told the convention that they did not    think    it fair  to take    a vote    under such circumstances, although  Kamloops   had    obtained the   previous   vote    under  conditions to which they now took exception.      The  net result was a unanimous expression that the whole  matter should be   left to the, government engineers  to select the route which   appeared   to    them   most  suitable.    Kaniloops' delegates were    quite happy    to  get the decision made in this way. Later conventions  have given further approval    to    the    principle    laid  down that the question of route be left; to the engineers.   Now that the engineers have    decided on    the  Princeton-Hope route Kamloops holds up its hands in  holy terror, renounces the compact to    abide by the  decision of the,engineers, and is starting out to work  the country into a frenzy because the engineers have "  done that which it was left    them to do���������select the  most feasible route.  The outstanding arguments In favor of the Fraser  canyon route would appear   to    be    that    Kamloops.  wants It.   There is a suggestion that the route might >  be kept open for a longer period    during the winter  months, but who is going to    tour    motor   highways  when the thermometer    is below zero? .    .  The Princeton route, would be some hundred miles  .shorter, would give direct connection for the most  populous centres of the Interior, the Similkameen,  lower Okanagan, Kettle Valley arid Kootenay districts, could be built niore. quickly and constructed at.  a much less 'cost.  We would like to please our Kamloops friends,  but there is no-good reason why' the wishes of the  bulk of the population of the,Interior should be sacrificed to that end'. And continued wrangling will,  only serve to delay construction. Let the engineers  finish their job.���������Grand Forks Gazette.  t<. ������������������  ssmaoBBa  44 Tis the heart's toicc alone can resicli the heart."  ���������I)e Mussett.

TRAIL, "September 8.���������Trail was  a quiet town on August 29rid inst.  Nearly everybody went to the opening of the new highway, or to some  picnic or other. The ��������� automobile  owners all went to the boundary-  line to witness'the'opening.  Hon.. Wm. . Sutherland, M. D.,  minister of public works for the  province, presided officially over  the proceedings, which, as becoming  representatives of two democratic  countries, were very simple. The  breaking of a ribbon at the bound-,  ary.showed that the actual barriers'  which separate the United States  from Canada, are very trivial, and  the spirit which exists between the  peoples is of a nature that requires  no greater boundaries.  The minister was followed by Oliver Hall, chairman of the roads and  bridges committee of the senate of  the United States.

During the present year there has been a great increase in the number of tourists visiting in Langley and a subsequent  increase in the demands foi camping quarters. This fact is primarily responsible for the matter being taken up at the meeting of the  Hoard of Trade and the question  will be discussed from all possible  angles: Supporters of the project  predict that next year there will be  even, a greater increase in the number of tourists in the municipality  and claim that steps .should be taken to cater to them. Several of the  local merchants are strongly in support of having the visitors spend at  least a night in Langley Prairie and  of the widespread publicity gained  as. a result of having an up-to-date  camp.  As yet the matter is only in the  initial stages and no mention has  been made of a possible site for the  camp, but little difficulty is anticipated in this connection, for several  suitable locations for a camp are  said to be available.

Okanagan Peaches  Are Found Scarce  (From Fr*aeir Valley Record)  There are many people , in this  community who are patriotic enough  to want to buy the Okanagan peaches in preference to,the foreign peach,  but find that it is, almost impossible  to get anything but the Washington  peach. Some of the merchants hoped  tp be able to supply the Okanagan  peaches but when the consignment  arrived it was the Washington peach.  :. Not being able to get the local  peach tlie following wire was sent:  "B. C. Fruit Growers Co-operative  Union,   Vernon,   B.   C.  Local retailers' say impossible to  obtain' B. C. peaches from Vancouver wholesalers. Same applies to  apricots. When Okanagan peaches  ordered Washington peaches shipped  by wholesalers. Is there any reason  why Okanagan peaches not available?     Wire  reply."  And   the   following  was- received:  "Okanagan peaches have not been  available for coast , markets as we  have only had sufficient.-peaches for  our mixed cars loading for the prairie points who are willing to pay  more money than Vancouver so Vancouver jobbers quite right in advising they can only supply Washington  peaches. We do hope to.bo able to  send several cars' Elberta poaches  Vancouver this week.  ASSOCIATED   GROWERS,   Vernon."  There should be an aboundance of  peaches from up-country to not only  supply the prairies but also Vancouver. Vancouver could possibly  take about two carloads a clay for a  period; while Naramata might be  able to supply at least 2;">; Penticton  maybe about 100, and then there  are the. other points such as Sum-  merland, Kelowna, Peachland. It  is' not wise to let anyone tell you  that there is a scarcity of. peaches  grown "in B. C.

THK   STEEL   INDUSTRY  VANCOUVER, Sept. 8.���������The  City of Vancouver was in the market a short time ago for a 2500-  pound casting; Prices were secured  from Montreal and Trenton, N. J.  The American price was somewhat  lower, but when it came to a question of freight, tlie rate from Montreal to Vancouver, all rail, was  $3.40 per hundred, while the rate  from Trenton to Vancouver via the  Panama Canal, was only 50 cents a  hundred.  In 1911 the steel interests entered into an agreement to not build  any blast furnaces, iron and steel  works in the West for a period of  twenty years. At tlie same time, the  nof famous "Pittsburg Plus" Agreement was entered into. This agreement was to the effect that all iron  steel sold in the West for twenty  years must be on the basis of Pitta*  burg   Plus.  Five States in the Union are now  bringing in the United States courts  to   cancel   this   agreement.
