This beautiful tract of land lies
alng the Hallway between the Station and Duncan's milk stand, and
consists of from 240 to 300 incres,
partly in wood, but rather more pra-
rlo .land, which is the best of alluvial deposit, It has been divided Into 20 acre blocks and Is ,to be sold
by the Government to bona fide settlers for $")(!' an acre, to be paid for
In  ten semi-annual  payments.
There Is every facility. A. school
Is right on (the property. Indeed, 2
acres were given out of the property
for a school ground, j The land ta
well watered, and also well drained.
A river of excellent water passes on
either Fide. It is distant from Kir-
by's store, th© ,P.O. and the Presbyterian chucuh but half a mile, lies
well to the sun, ,and Is quite level.
When a road, is later constructed to

only nine miles. Timber for building

asking his opinion met with the laconic reply, "I have 400 acres of adjoining Jand and it Is A.1 ; nothing
It 1b doubtful If there Is a better
opening In the Province for bona fide
settlers, and none s0 locating would
purely have occasion to regret the

a most promising- opportunity for
some fifteen of the best families to

public thanks Is due the local Counsellor.

representatives were strong advocates
for the Dewdney Trunk ns the main

no melius averse to tho Oovornmenl
Improving the Dcwdney Trunk Itottd.
Ueeve Knight opened the discussion
by explaining thai the Goi eminent
had put up n proposition to Mission
for u hew road between lluskin and
Kilverdale by n fiil-in across the flats
parallel l<> the railway track, which
would cut off 2'/. miles from tht
present route by the lied Bridge, estimated to cost $03,1180, and n bridge
across the Stave Itlver esfclma ted
about from $00,000 to $100,000. The
Mission Council Deputies had seen
Dr. Sutherland on the subject and it
appeared that the project depended
upon .Mission contributing substantially to it. Their Council were certainly not prepared to go anything
like fifty-fifty on the scheme.
The Government admitted that it
would be between two and three years
before the road could be open for
traffic, Their Council put up a counter proposition that the Government
should spend the 1924 appropriation
on the Dewdney Trunk Road.
Councillor Martyn—"Why did you
ask for that?"
Jieeve Knight—"Because their Council was not prepared to go fifty-fifty
on this fill or anything like it and if
they did not the Government would
do nothing. The R. C. Electric Company were prepared to go in to a
certain extent, provided the .Municipality would abandon the lied Bridge
mute and not. compel them to put a
bridge across the Stave River,"
Councillor Martyn—"That will practically mean that the Uiver Uoad going through I tusk in and Whonnock
would  not   be continued."
Reeve Knlghi—"We do nol propose
that lhe Government abandon it but
leave it for this year."
Councillor Martyn—"You are stopping the continuing of this road for
this year provided the Dewdney Trunk
Uoad is put. Into proper shape."
t leave Knight—"We realize out
MimVipnlity cannot afford lo go into
lhe Government scheme. Ii is going
to cost too much money und if the
Municipality won't join in, the Gov*
eminent will do nothing. It is the
Trunk Road or no road at all. Tlie
It. C. Kleetrie won't need to interfere with the Ited Bridge for three
OF four years, but there is no doubt
if ihey start on their .second development this year the Uiver (load will
he closed for traffic for a certain
time which will divert the traffic
round by the Trunk Road anyway
The Government has put a tax on
gasoline and they have no primary
road on the north side of the Frnser.
It is up to the Government to show
their good faith and build this road
themselves, but they won't undertake
It unless the Municipality goes in
with them. We have no through
road to Vancouver even nfler thut.
Admitting It will out of! 8>/8 miles,
Mission only wants It If the Government build it themselves. The majority of the people favor the Dewdney Trunk Uoad."
Councillor Jackson (Mission)—"The
Trunk Itond is belter built, has a better grade, cuts off ten miles to Van
eoiiver and will open up the Municipality."
Ueeve Knight—"It is a shorter and
dtrnlghtor rond. The River Uoad will
never he a through roi'd."
Councillor Martyn — "The Itlver
Uoad goes through a settled portion
of this Municipality. Prom a mile
eust of Webster's Co morn lliere Is
not it  house for three m 11 oh,"
IteeVO Knlghi "There were lei) nel-
: lori. for nnu there in our Municipality wii.'ii lite Trunk Uoad was closed
down. What we wmii Is the Govern-
iiteni to ipond this year's appropriation on ihe Dettdney Trunk Road and
put It in fair condition. Under the
scheme submitted it will be three
years before Ihey could have Ihe road
open for traffic."
Councillor Martyn—"Vou want to
take the appropriation from the Uiver Uoad and put it on the Dewtlnev
Trunk Rond."
Reeve Knight—"No, wo propose Ihey
take the appropriation this year from
this $54,000 to be spent on the 1111-
ln nnd put ii on the Dewdney Trunk
'The Reeve deprecated trying In pull

how crooked they made the rond.
They wanted a    through    road    as
Straight us possible. He further
pointed out the Incitement the Trunk
Road would give to settlement. ll

Councillor Mnrtyn—"Back the Government in making the River Road

Reevo Knight—"Our Municipality
won't go in wiih the Go irmnoul financially In this scheme owing to
the cost and because it won't benefit
to that extent, ll goes through some
hind of no use whatever. This road;
won't serve the people for three
Councillor Watt—"Lei Mission untl I

Reeve Knight-—-"Would you go in

Councillor  Watt-  "Yes,   If   it   -Iocs,

Councillor Martyn—"Ves, we will
do anything like that."
Reeve Knight—"We will put no
stumbling block in the way of the
other scheme only Mission will not
help financially because it is too expensive. It will be too late for the
new council und 1 suggest we go next,
The Maple Ridge Council subsequently appointed their delegates and
it was nr ranged that Mission should
communicate with the Government
and B. C. Electric Company and fix
a date for the delegation to be heard.
