Sept. 24.���������"If  pbrtant to have it clearly stated that  tlie Wartime Elections Act of 1917  has no application to the present election as that act is dead and gone  forever, nor re Scott Act or by-elec-  tjdn lists of-any legal force for a  general election.''   :  Iii this 'way Alexander Smith, barrister, of .* Ottawa prefaces an answer, to'an enquiry as to what voters'  lists1 will';.be:--used*in':the:.i)tr.eseiit'gen'r':  eral-election". 'Mr. Smith at the rec  ent session of Parliament was intro;  duc'ed to: the.privileges and elections  couim'ittee.of the House of Commons  to submit such interpretations on  the Dominions Elections Act as might  occur to him, with the result that  the act was considerably amended.  Under the new Elections Act a British subject by birth or naturalization  is entitled to vote" if he or she is  twenty one years' of age, resident in  Canada for one year and in ihe constituency for two months at the time  of the issue of the writ.  t Will Revise   Lists  In cities ancl towns oL 2H00 population a person to be allowed to vote  must have his" or her name entered  on the voters' list before election day.  In towns of 2500''or less population.  and in rural municipalities, persons  otherwise qualified, whose- names  , are not on the list, may vote by declaring on election day they are entitled to vote and at thes ame time  have a voter, resident in the same  poll, whose name is on the list, swear  or declare to the qualifications of the  applicant.  "Once the writs are issued, lists,"  Mr. Smith says, "will be revised in  every polling division in Canada ancl  the basis of these lists will be the  provincial lists' as used in the  provincial elcetions any time within  the past two years, except in such  provinces where since the provincial  elections, new lists have been pre-,  pared by sheriffs or municipal or  other officials' for, as a basis of, provincial lists. . To any such provincialJ  lists will be added the names of per-1  sons now qualified ancl the names of  non-qualified persons may be struck  off. In provinces' where there are  ino provincial lists, as    pointed  VANCOUVER, Sept. 2 8.���������Within  the past, few weeks, a large numbers  ls.Wftf. of, buxom English, Irish and Scotch  lassies have arrived from the Old  Country, to settle in British Columbia. Most of them "seek jobs' in the  city and few seem to care about.dom:  estic service or farm life, although  some frankly admit they would like  td meet some farmers "'and���������a simpering blush mutely concludes-, the  sentence. The girls, say,-they ha'dLno  chancy.i)^  tlicre"are" often two or three young  women for every one eligible man in  their home town. A girl hasn't a  chance to get married there; they  say. Several of the girls "have already found mates in Vancouver,  New Westminster and other spots.  Three Irish girls left this ��������� week to  wed Victoria men whom they met  here. It'is wispered that Vancouver  girls do not take kindly to the inva-  sion^of the fair immigrants who are.  regarded askant-as poachers in the  matrimonial field of these parts. It  is expected that at least fifty more  girls will .cross' the Atlantic for this  region .next month. The young  women comply with the immigration  laws in every way and some are provided with a little money to tide  them over until they secure work, w  some other eventualities happen.  The W. A. of the G. W. V. A. will  hold their monthly meeting at the  home of Mrs. Whitchelo on Monday,  October 3rd, at 3 p. in. The chief  business will be to arrange a date to  hold the lectures', organized by Mrs.  Gordon, so it is hoped all the members will make an effort to be. present.  C.

A.B.BO'I'BFOE-D POST  KMisj-;  THE ABBOTSFORD POST.  J; A. BATES. Editor and Proprietor  Published Every Friday  ,  I'itlDAV,   SiIOPTKMHKK .'JO,    H>21  Four great centres of the Pacific  coast have one great problem in common. They are British Columbia,  Washington. Oregon and California.  Their problem is the Oriental colonist. The three States have had the  question on their worried minds for  several years, but if is. only lately  that British Columbia has settled  down to action with the realization  that the .menace is more real than apparent.  This measure vitally affects the  entire province, but is emphasized  now in the agricultural districts and  the citizens where Asiatics are now  grave competitors in the labor market.   '  No doubt remains that the Asiatics  are .flooding this province. Vancouver's .Chinatown has just acquired  one of the largest theatres there, and  now. has two large Chinese theatres'  crowded nightly. The Japanese, although growing in numbers here,  have no theatre yet but they are getting a large one in Vancouver. Statistics show that many expensive motor cars are being sold to Asiatics.  Which means' , they ""are ..acquiring  wealth. Other figures reveal the  fact that very few Asiatics are out  of work, which shows that they are  prospering while white men are jobless.  The question ' ceases to be acad-  deniic. The remedy lies solely in an  elimination of ^migration wth educational work ��������� that wll make the soil  arid the country more popular- with  unskilled white- labor. .Provincial  farmers claim their crops would suffer if they had to do without Asiatic labor. They show where men  prefer to walk the streets in prefer-  ' ence to going on thc farm. This is  a condition that may be a contributory cause of the Asiatic influx, but  it is more popular with unskilled  workers. , When" men learn to understand that the soil is a treasure trove'  for the worker, then will one solution to the Asiatic problem be found.  good setters and, collies, , contained  some very- popular contests. There  was" a fair showing of dairy stock  and  poultry.'  The sheep pens were well stocked,  chiefly by Mr. F.'-T. Seldon's that  carried most, of the prizes. Of swine  there was not enough to fill the prize  list, but there were numerous entries  among the" horses from great lieu vy  drafters to small Shetlands and Mr.  Carncross of the Soldiers' Training  Farm had an interested crowd of  farming and horse-loving men  around him during the afternoon, a&  he judged the various classes.  The interesting prize list drew a  large display of amateur.photograpns  of nature subjects, a vost array - of  ladies' work,���������a cooking contest  where the town ladies could compote  with the farmers''  collection of ranch-  included something  pro.'HiccH-  Mrs.     P.  on even  terms  wives,���������and a  producri   which  of .everything that can be  for human food on a farm.  OUR HISTORY'S PKR1L  Let us carefully guard the name  ���������and fame of our great, lest they pass  into nothingness when future ages  shall chronicle the doings,of this  era! Professor Duncan Uruhart,  Glascow sage, lately exploded a bomb  while visiting "British Columbia, with  the solemn statement that the scriptures were largely mythical, and that  much of the world's ancient history  is nothing but a rehashing from the  Norse sagas.  This is disquieting. We mHSf be  on our guard. We should protect  the. famous characters of our day,  and see that they, too, are not dethroned from their pinnacles of historic fame in a" like manner.  Imagine how interesting it would  be if some future historian gravely  told his hearers that .we never had  Joseph Martin at all or John Oliver  but'they were only  snatched from the sagas. Thinf, if  you can, how unjustice would fall  upon Mrs. Mary Ellen Smith, if a  blatant" historian of, say A. D. 2001  adduced figures' to show that the  province of British Columbia.., never  owned such a character, but that she  was really the wife of a viking, and  a lineal descendant., of Mr. Oden or  Mr. Thor! And Mr. "Pussyfoot"  Johnson,���������must his name pass into  doubt? Can history see him pass  down to posterity as the possible  water-carrier of Rameses, or something like that!  If our    archives are to    reman secure for all time, and our history to  remain intact,    now is the    time for  .us to take a stand and do something  about it...  Jackman in this department had a  remarkable display,' mutton and  wool, hams and pork chops, canned  fruits and cheese with cooked dainties and garden stuff in fruits, and  vegetables.  In offering prizes for milk and  cream, the executive acted wisely in  the interests., of the town, and the  goodly number of entries proved thai,  the farmers and milk vendors were  proud to show their produce. Mrs  .lacknian led again here as she did in  nutter, and by taking'tho sweepstakes for the largest number of  prizes, showed that the pioneers are  yet in the forefront, of production.  Excellent exhibits outside of honey by Mr. F. F. White;, some sweet  pea vines in bloom that ran nine feet  eight inches in height, were shown  by Mrs. McMenemy, ancl one corner,  of the room was devoted to-the work  of "JKmmie Downie,'"' Abbofsford's  blind hero, who had an astonishing  variety of hammocks, bags and network* on display, but being most  proud of a model chicken house and  run which permitted alternate runs  each week for the birds.  ��������� The refreshments were in charge  of St. Matthews' W. A- The Sumas  Women's Institute conducted a stall  o������ the sale of home .sewing and  cooking, turning over the proceeds  to the Abobtsford Hospital Fund.  and display heads telling of thc=) lilt"  est scandals, prize fights, and the  misfortunes of humanity.  1 But, it remains for the'"local pap-'  er," the "country weekly," ��������� the  "home town paper".to really give thc  news of the world, or that of Mir.  Common People ancl his wife. !  It is time that the country newspaper shoulil do something to place  itself on a higher plant, ancl also  make some noise. Just one paper to  start something would not amount  to much, but if' the 15,000 country  papers would join in a chorus, a  noise that would go around the  world would be the result. ,     j  Sometime ago I was going through  some trade paper, or bulletin of a  state press association, or something |  of that kind, and noted that some-1  body wrote that it might be a good \  idea to live a "Subscribe for Your |  Home Town Paper Week:" I sniil-j  ed at the idea at first, but some way.,  the idea stuck, and then I .started to  find out who originated the-idea, but  the paper was lost.  The publisher who thought of the j  idea just let it go at that, 'but I do-1  cided that it was so good that . it  should not die, so at once asked all  the trade papers, printers' magazines and' the great printers' supply  houses what they thought of the  idea.  I     The  Officers of  the'National   Editorial Association     wrc  -written   to,  jand  in   fact some two    hundred   letters were sent out.  The result was that everyone  wrote that the idea was just, tlie  thing, and by common consent, it.  was decided that the week of November 7 to 12 be adopted as "Subscribe to .Your Home Town Paper  Week.".   ^-~w^;-:g  iifliiflW^RwaWiir'-T"!  MEETING PROVINCIAL NEEDS  The greal increase in Hie number of..telephone  stations in tin's province means that the telephone  subscriber, is able to reach many more people by  wire*-and consequently his: service is of greater  fvalue.��������� During Ihe pasl year or two, expansion  has been marked in all parts of Vancouver Island  and the lower Mainland, but adequate facilities  have been installed, both in regard to outside  plant and inside equipment, to meet the needs of  Hie various communities; The object of the company is to give a telephone service second to none.  , The B.C. Telephone Company, being a British  Columbian concern all through, has a real interest in provincial progress, and every effort is  made not only lo meet the needs of development  bill lo anticipate them.

There was a vast increase in  the entries, a marked elevation in  quality" of exhibits, and. a decidedly  greater number of visitors. The large  Alexandria1 Hall-was- packed to disr  comfort in the middle of the afternoon. Mr. F. 13. Stacey, M. P. made  the formal opening, preceding the  ceremony by a timely speech in which  he urged the fruit growers'to confine  It is a notable fact with all the  wonderful things that have .been  written about the so-called "country newspaper" very few of them  realize all their possibilities, or what  an influence they are in the world.  It is now up to tlie newspapers of  the country, the home town papers,  to see the wonderful possibilities of  such a week, where in every locality  readers will be asked to subcribe  for the local weekly, and in addition  mythical figures, to the home town paper where they  were born���������if they were not born  where they now live.  In this way, every home town paper will help every other home town  paper, and by concentrating the efforts to one week, or three weeks or  four weeks, the home town paper  will receive the publicity  led to.  The home town paper is ever-ready  to "boost" for the other fellow, to  print item after item about this or  that kind of a clay or week���������the time  has come for if to boost and blow its  bugle for itself and all home (own  papers', to put on a campaign of publicity, and take advantge of what  other papers will do.  In other words, throw its hat into  ther ing, and put up a fight that will  got it somewhere instead of sitting  on the side lines and hollerin" for the  other fellow.  Here are some items that the country, newspaper can use for thy weeks  proceeding November. 7''to 12. and  on the week itself, which as suggestions will lend themselves toward  writing- other items along the same  line, or making display advertisements, folders or circulars.  I'Yoni the office of the National Rd  il.orial   Association   will 'undoubtedly,  come   cither   suggestions,   and     from  state press    associations   and    other  sources.

"Smoke  the same amount of tobacco every  day," said Sir James,, "and the heart  will become ccustomed to a certain  amount. If one smokes less one day  than another, he feels the effect as  much as if he had smoked more."  He said three day's abstinence from  smoking would entirely free the system of nicotine.

It was  opened at the C. P.* R. Place Vigor  Station, Montreal, on August 29th,  amongst those present being Premier Arthur Meighen, Mayor Martin  of Montreal, and Senator C. P. Beaubien, who organized the bringing of  the French exhibition goods to Can-  , ada and the tour of the train  throughout the   Dominion.  The object of the train carrying  French goods is to promote cordial,  social, and commercial relations,  reciprocally advantageous to both  countries.  The   train  consists  of a  baggage  'car,'eight exhibition cars, a tourist.  a diner, and two si coping cars.   -The  ,���������, eight   coaches   of   the   train   carry  goods representative of:  (1) The intellectual development  of Prance;  (2$  Industries,     commerce      and  (3)  (5)  (6)  tours;1  French  styles;  Leather industries;  Chemical   goods,   perfumery;  Instruments of various kinds,  elec^rica^ goods, toys;  Agriculture,  horticulture,  food;  (8) Jewellery,    objects    of    art,  clocks, watches.

During the four days which the  train remained in Montreal it was  isitecl by thousands of interested  persons. It was a huge success at  the Toronto Fair and is attracting  large numbers everywhere it goes  through  the  country.  A member of the staff of tlie Canadian Government commercial intei-  .itfcnee service is travelling with the  train, partly in order to study the  results obtained from a business  oint of view. The information  .cleaned is to be used in fixing up the  .rainload of Canadian products  which it is stated is to be sent later  on to tour France and probably the  United Kingdom anu other European  countries.  Given A Banquet  Send-off Tuesday  (Prom Fraser Valley Record)  About forty members of the Mission City Board of Trade attended a  farewell banquet at the Mission  Hotel to Mr. Harry Beach, former  secretary of the Board, on Tuesday  evening of this w^eek. The president,  Mr. F. Roche presided in his usual  happy manner and a most pleasanc  evening was spent. The repast, was  one of the best ever given in Mission  City; and the event was an excellent  way to show the Board's appreciation  of the energetic work which the retiring secretary had done during his  term of office. Me had been successful in arranging several during the  present year and it was only fitting  that on his leaving Mission City that  he should be tendered one himself,  for no member of the Board of Trade  has been more worthy of honor than  he. As a slight token of the appreciation in which ho is regarded by the  Board, Mr. Beach was presented with  a travelling bag. After all had partaken of the good things the speechmak-  ing of the evening began.  The president directed the attention of the 'gathering to the object  rof. their presence that evening, emphasizing the fact that it was the object of bidding adieu to Mr. Harry  Beach, secretary of the Board of  Trade, who had held the position for  many years with credit to himself  and the Board. It was a pleasure to  testify to the good work which he had  carried on. As one of our rising  young men he had set a standard as  secretary of which we all were proud.  That he was leavin gwas a decided  loss to the Board as he had worked  for the betterment of the community.  On behIf of the members of the  Board he wished Mr. Beach to accept  a small token of' their appreciation  and all hoped that some day he might  return. Mr. Beach then was the recipient of a.travelling bag.  Mr. Beach, on rising, was greet  ed with applause, and holding the  travelling bag in his hand said, "1  thank you from the depth of my heart  for this evidence of your appreciation  of my services as secretary. I am  deeply m'oved by it, and full of gratitude for your kind thoughts. 1 am  soon to leave. I regret the going but  some day I hope to be back in this  vicinity again, perhaps not in Mission  City but very close to you. I came  to the country about twelve years  ago." He had enjoyed the work of  the Board of, Trade. .There is a lot  to do. It had been a hard task, although it took considerable time, but  was willingly given. He again thanked them for their kindness.  Mr. W. I-I. Matheson said that he  could not allow this occasion to pass  without extending his best wishes to  Mr. Beach as a member of the board  for the great amount of work he had  done. He held the position for a  number of years and he believed that  the members of the board should all  feel indebted to him for the woi K lie  has done. He had taken an active  part in everything that would further  the betterment of the community.  He wished Mr. Beach success in  whatever line of work he might undertake and hoped that we would see  him in  the community again.  Mr. M. F. Shook said that Mr.  Beach was one of the best fellows he  had ever met, and he owed him many  debts of gratitude. A prosperity  that he enjoyed had dated from the  time that the King-Beach Manufacturing company had started business  in this district. Mr. Beach was a  member of the firm and he wished  him success wherever he might go.  At the suggestion of Mr. J, H.  Lawrence the gathering sang "For  He is a Jolly Good Fellow" alter  which Mr. Bannister at the piano accompanied Mr. D. Galliford who sang  several excellent selections.  Mr. J. A. Catherwood, said, "Mr.  Chairman and gentlemen and members of the Board of Trade, I am not  much on the eulogistic line, but if  it were politics, good roads or moderation, I would be right at home. "  He reiterated what the previous  speakers had said. Mr. Beach had  been a good neighbor, a good member of tlie board, and if he follows'  the path of most people he will return to British Columbia again.. He  was sorry to know that Mr. Beach  was leaving but hoped that be would  be back again. While he kept things  running smoothly for the board it  must have taken lots of time, and  all wished for success wherever he  might locate.  Mr. R. P. King���������'"Mr. President,  Mr, Beach and members of the Board  of Trade present, there is one thing  that I can say Mr, Beach has devoted  considerable time to the work of the  secretary, both in the office and in  his home for he must have ' taken  much of tho work home with him. He  was" sorry to see Mr. Beach go ancl  hoped that in the future he would  again be associated with our firm,  the members of which wished for his  39C  LOGGER IS  CLAIMANT  OF EXTINCT TITLE  VICTORIA.

(From Fraser Valley Record)  The Mission Foot Ball Club came  into their own again when they visited Fern ridge last. Saturday and  returned victorious by the score of  f> to nil.  The Fernrldge boys were no match  for our speedier and more experienced players but the season is young  and before it is over they will be able  to give any of the teams a good tussle.  The local lads all played well, but  were never forced to exert    themselves.    Hughes,    Sloan and    Galliford  'contributed to the scoring    while the  defence was at their best.  After the game the players were  treated to a chicken supper in honor  of the opening of Football in the  town. Line up���������ICckardt and Whistler; P. Cox and J.

One night this week, lie met  'a.suave compatriot who unfolded a  fine plan by which they would each  make $10,000 with an outlay of only  $1800. The details are difficult to  understand, as Joe was incoherent  with excitement and grief in making  the complaint, and he cannot speak  very good English at. best. ' However, it seems that ho entrusted the  stranger with $'1000 of the $1800  with the understanding that they;  were to meet at a downtown office  to close the deal. But that was the  end of it. Now Joe has'gone back to  work on, the section gang. The  stranger is believed to be in Seattle"  where the police , are   seeking him.
