Scpl. 8U1, thc deluge began," says  (he Vancouver Province. "Al lhat lime aboul  4000 acres of land in thc Fraser Valley were  golden wilh grain: most of it, roughly 3000 acre?,  was tessellated wilh sheaves, ripe and dry, await  ing Iheir turn wilh thc threshing outfit. Of thc  olher. some was still uncut, the rest was safely  harvested. Thc fortunate few "who ,'has been  carlv to thresh are lhe only farmers in tlie valley  who arc nol facing the worst set-hack- in thirty  vears. a scl-hack from which onc Surrey farmer,  forcsighted. prudent, and well-informed, says it  will lake two good ycars lo recover."  This pcture of lhe Fraser Valley is to some cx-  Lenl. an enlargement pf the picture in somc sections of thc Okanagan. The rains of lhc past  five weeks have caused considerable damage to  manv. and to a few a complete set-back for the  season's work, ll is deplorable. But let us not  lose sight of-thc immense-good the rains will do.  Thc Okanagan Valley never has known a crop  failure, but the past "four ycars havc seen light ^ ^ho,.l {l  precipitation in lhc fall season when thc ground "���������������������������   "^ j  is open to receive it. Thc result has been.little Tficv"\vill  moisture in tlie ground and accompanying light  crops, except Avhere favored with sub-irrigation  as somc. localities arc. The present rains will put  the soil of thc Norlh Okanagan in. a condition  for a big harvest next year and thc ncxt. Thcy  will injure somc this.year, bul will more than  make  uiVthc loss when  next year's  crops  arc  not put in an angelic state of mind when, in spite  of ihe hugh surplus this great corporation is  reported to have already made, thc railway commission raises passenger fares 20 per cent and  freight rates 35 per cent, in addition to the advances already fallowed by Vhe railway? board  somc months ago.  The intelligent Canadian workman is not hoodwinked by the camouflages worked by lhe big  corporations and thc politicians, to* make the dose  go down easier. He connects the fat profits of  the corporations wilh the inordinate increase in  Ihc cost, of building, of clothing, of everything  hc and his family have to have to exist, and when  he reads of the dazzling profits made by our  sugar kings, J our woolen kings, who sell to llie  consumer wool at $3 a pound lhat lhcy buy from  'the farmer at from 10c to 30c a pound , he feels  bitter. To bc frank, wc havc a greal deal of sympathy with this altitude of the Canadian workmen and lhc farmers. Thcy .may not know  whom lo blame, but they feel certain lhat blame  rests somewhere, and at somc time, in somc way  the rank and Pile of thc people will square thc  bill..  In thc meantime lhcy will demand thc right lo  hold opinions not in. harmony with, lhc Ottawa  group without accepting the.dictum lhat thcy are  "wreckers."  An Immoral.

AnyJaw of suppression is nol  a moral law.   Laws of suppression can exist only  short lime. Thcy" were invoked in thc dark  we arc coming back to them now.  Thev will bc thrown oft" again as Ihey were discarded before. Possibly wc shall have to go  tlirough a period of suppression similar to that  of long ago. War emergency legislation sort of  revived the old spirit of suppression in the heart  of man. Supprcsivc legislation was pul on the  statute books 'that the ruling group in this as in  all lands, will bc slow lo remove. It whetted the  appetite of some classes for greater powers of  suppression, and we sec today .the fight for prohibitive legislation iu the matter of liquor.  Thc world has enjoyed the use of liquor from  the beginning. Even in the dark days of lhc inquisition it was permitted, but at that time lhe  fight was for religious control not moral control.  Today the fight is for moral control. Naturally  men will resent this a Item pi a I suppression ol  liis personal liberty. He may submit outwardly  to the law. but al the same lime he will take delight in beating thc law. Eventually tins spirit  oi* contempt for the law must lead to contempt  for other laws, and thc people, in the end, must  suffer thc consequences. o  Edge 11  4-H-ke-i  Their  lhere  tion.

Today thc far-Hun^ Peace River country, with  its immense agrcultural resources, is represented  at Victoria I_y a lawyer, who may bc a very decent man of charming personality, but.who has  no more interest personally in agriculture and  land settlement in the new north than he has in a  similar area over in Labrador.  In lhat immense central region tapped by thc  Grand Trunk Pacific there arc real problems  facing the country people. Land clearing, settlement and lhc building ol* roads, bridgcs,school  houses and hospitals arc seme of the vital needs  of the. conimunily. Another lawyer residing in a  distant town is a representative. Hc is a very  fine 3'oung man���������������������������no doubt of good character  and standing���������������������������but his lily-while hand will never  remove thc stumps from thc fertile Bulkley  Valley.

Presumably, anyone who docs' nol accept the  ruling of the Railway Board in granting thc increase in passenger and'fricght rates, will come  under the "wrecker" class, ft may not be oul of  place, however, lo point but that it is just such  arbitrary rulings as lhis that makes for trouble.  Thc following from thc Otlawa correspondent of  the Manitoba Free Press gives an inkling of thc  attitude of the-Government on the appeal from  thc railway rales judgment: "Nobody," says hc,  "who attended the sittings in the appeal to the  Privy Council from thc railway rales judgment  of lhc 'Railway Commission, has the remotest  hope lhat the order will be disallowed. Thc governmcnl has made up its mind on this point long  ago. .It issued a statement lo that effect before  ever an appeal was filed. Its minister of railways,  Hon. Dr. Reid, placed his seal of approval on the  document anel then promptly left for'England.  There will bc no disallowance and thcrc will bc  no suspension of the rates. On those points the  nalicnt public might-as wr-U make up its mind.  But that the government, will at least do something is thc expectation/ . ... Thc government will take the position that the subject of revision is a matter that the Board must take up at  its own initiative, and that in the meantime an  inquiry will be made into the question of discrimination and that a revision bc ordered in the  light of such enquiry later. In this thc government will give an appearance of action while at  the same time shelving the responsibility of interference with the order or offense to the railways."    -. - .

And Lady Asquith, from  her girlhood, has been intimately associated with  Ihe men and women who have made history in  Europe. The free and easy way she handles hcr  subjects must havc taken the breath of somc ol*  them when thcy read whal she has had to say.  In somc quarters she is bitterly condemned and  assailed as an irresponsible babbler. But there  must be a higher purpose back of her writings.  May it not be a similar purpose that is back of  the-'sending of the Prince of Wales about the  world hob-nobbing in a most-'democratic* way  and making a good-fellow of himself? Certainly  one cannot react her writings without getting into hcai.t-to-heart touch with the ruling class and  finding* in them much-of the human feeling that  animates you and me in the ordinary, walks of  life."

These demands have been so rapid  and   the   supplying   of   equipment   by  J the   factories   so  slow   that-the 'com-  ��������������������������� panj has bcen put at its wits ends to  supply even in a limited way the ser-  jvice it has been able to give.  !     Recently- a   thorough    survey   was  ; made  of  the  Valley   and   it  was   de-  \ cided to begin at once a more  ener-  i getic  effort to  meet  the  demands  of  J the hour and  to  cope  with  the  business    the    future    promises.    ��������������������������� Plans  were laid and already work is underway for an   addition   to   the   present  central exchange at Vernon.    This addition   is   necessary   to   accommodate  the   large ^witch-board   which   is   to  bo   installed  as   soon   as  the   factory  i can turn it out.    Line extensions and  improvement of the present ones also  are to be undertaken, with the object  of making the service" in  the  Okanagan    complete    and    up-to-the-minute.  Speaking   of   the    objects    of   the  telephone   company,   Mr.   Smith,   the  \ company's    financial     agent,   who,   is  I now in the Valley placing before in-  j vestors    the    opportunity  to    become  | shareholdres in the business, told the  j Commoner that it is the desire of the  j men at  the head of the company to  I place   some -$30,000   worth   of   stock  ! in   the   hands   of  Valley  investors   at  this time.    This sum, and more, is to  go   into  the" extensions   and r improvements now contemplated and already  under.way.     Thc  investment,  he  said,  is gilt-edged;   has no "drawbacks, and  is sure to bring returns at say S per  cent   per   annum.     Anyono   knowing  tlie   safe   character   of 'Utility  investments    will    quickly    jump   .at    the  ! chance  to  buy   this   stock..   There   is  'nothing -better,   and   anyone  who  has  ��������������������������� faith   in   thc   Okanagan   Valley,   (and  iwho has not), must realize what the  returns   will   be   from   the   operation  of this "company's lines-! as the Valley  continues to grow and  develop.    The  new   equipment,   building,   lines,   etc.,  that are to be added to the assets .of  the  company by the  money  now  be-  j ing   raised,   will   add   greatly   to   the  ; revenue   producing   facilities   of   the  j company���������������������������will, in  fact, permit of the  j business being doubled up  ,with very-  little additional- expense in operation.  Mr. Smith is now visiting Kelowna  and    other   "southern    Valley    points.  He will visit Armstrong and Enderby  in a week or two. and hopes to meet  anyone   having   money   to   invest   in _  (.his   safe    and    sound    Valley   enter- j  prise.   ��������������������������� !  FARMERS'   NATIONAL   POLICY  Will   the   Farmers  of   B.   C.   Link   Up  With   Parent  Body or Adopt  Half  Measures  and   Get   Nowhere?  The United Farmers of B. C. have  reached the point where thoy must  either go ahead or go backward. They  must either link* up with thc organized farmers of Canada or bo sidetracked and left behind. Half-way  measures lead only to failure, and to  be organized as United Farmers and  yet not become a part of the Canadian Council of Agriculture is like  trying to get for "themselves thc good  of the organization without taking up  the responsibilities that go with it.  The position thus far assumed has  been illogical and harmful, and can  get them nowhere. What they have  been afraid of is tho tariff plank of  the Farmers' adopted platforms This  plank calls for the amendment of our  tariff laws (a) .By an immedate and  substantial all-round reduction of the  customs tariff; (b) By reducing the  customs duty on goods imported from  Great Britain to one-half the rates  charged under the general tariff, and  that further gradual, uniform reductions be made in the remaining tariff  on British imports that will ' ensure  complete Free Trade between Great  Britain and Cauda in five ycars. (c)  By endeavoring to secure unrestricted reciprocal trade in natural products with the United States along  the lines of the Reciprocity Agreement of, 1911. (d) By placing'all foodstuffs on the free' list, (e) That agricultural implements, farm and household machinery, vehicles, fertilizers,  coal, lumber, cement, gasoline, illuminating, fuel and lubricating oils be  placed on the free list, and that all  raw materials and machinery used in  their manufacture also be placed on  the free list.' (������������������)' That all tariff concessions- granted to other .countries  be immediately extended to - Great  Britain, (g) That all corporations engaged in the manufacture of products  protected bv the customs tariff be-  obliged to'-'publish annually^ comprehensive and accurate statements of  their earnings.' (h) Tliat every-claim  for tariff protection by any "industry  shoulcR be heard publicly before a  special committee cf parliament.
