AGASSIZ LAWN TENNIS CLUB
WINS TRIUMPH
On Friday night one of the best
entertainments of the season was put
up by the Agassiz Lawn Tennis Club.
which was well attended. The first
on the programme was instrumental
music hy Miss Bea Inkman, which was
loudly applauded, after which the
Kev. George Turpin sung a solo accompanied by Miss Inkman. This
received great applause and an encore. Next on the programme was
a screaming farce entitled "Too
Much Married" which kept the audience in fits of laughter from start
lo finish.
Mr. Prank Swentmnn, who is well
known in amaleur theatricals, was
the principal Character as "Bob Henshaw" who misrepresented to his rich
uncle that he was married and had
a son, hi order to get money from
the old man, Uncle Silas, who was
well represented by Mr. Harry Fooks.
George Ogilvie was very funny as
"Jerry Lanagan," "Bob HenshawV
servant and Miss Robson took the
part of Jerry's wife, who as housemaid, acted her part splendidly, Mrs.
ISlsoy as "Cordelia," the house keeper,
was also very clever and amusing.
Norman Green noted his part as one
of "Bob HenshnwV sons and though
he did not say very much yet looked
quite at home on the stage.
"Hob Henshaw" finding that his
Uncle Silas was due to arrive in two
hours* time, realized it was up to him
to produce a wife and 12 months'
old baby on short notice. Having appealed to his whole household to help
him till the necessary need and, all
in turn having promised to do their
part, lie found himself supplied with
no less than three wives and four
babies, one of which was six years
old nnd another that was black. This
necessitated too much explanation so
'>■*• had to make a clean breast of the
"dude thimr which wns taken in good
part by the uncle.
Mrs. B, Horwell then sang a solo
accompanied by Miss B. Inkman on
the piano which was received, as
usual, with great applause ami an
"7'cere. Mr. Prank Sweat man then
rendered a solo in his splendid voice
nnd was encored amidst much applause. *.\lrs. Evan Provert accompanied him on the piano.
The character sketch pertaining to
London life was then put on by Mr.
Fred. Howe and Miss Lille Jenkins,
who both showed great talent which
was very much appreciated by the audience.
Mr. liowe and Miss Jenkins are
members rf the Little Theatre Association  In Kew- Westminster.
The hall being cleared and the supper waltz over, refreshments were
served, after which Miss Lille Jenkins
gave nn exhibition of a fancy dance
in costume which was well received.
Dancing continued until an early
hour.

VANCOUVER-AGASSIZ    UOAD
SOON TO BE BUILT
HAKIUSON  MILLS COMING TO
ITS  OWN
HAUUISOJ? MILLS, March 8.—The
early completion of the Dewdney
link nf the trunk road between Vnn-
oouver and Agassiz now seems
assured. Iu January last thc executive of the Agassiz Liberal Association named their secretary-treasurer,
Thos, Kllby, as a delegate to go to
Victoria aud press for this and other
matters alVecling the district. At Victoria it was urged that the most important work of all was the building of a road between Harrison Mills
and Agassiz, which, when built, will
give a belt line road from Vancouver
to Agassiz, on the north side of the
Fraser River, crossing on the
Agussiz-Bosedule ferry and return to
Vancouver via the existing roads on
the south side of the Frnser River.
As a result of Mr, Kilby's trip,
Hon. Dr. Sutherland, Chief Engineer
Philip, Chief District Kngineer Ver-
ner and Assistant District Engineer
Stow visited Agassiz last week, nnd
in company with Mr. Kilby, C. M.
Strang, president, and the executive
members, went over the roads under
discussion.
Members of the Kent municipal
council told Hon. Dr. Sutherland
that if the government would build
the rond over the mountain the -Kent
municipality would build the road on
Ye flat on both sides of the mountain. Dr. Sutherland replied that
this was perfectly satisfactory to
him and that the government would
accept, the proposal.
There are 27 farms In the Harrison Valley, of from 24 to 200 acres
each. Eighteen of these farms
front on the route chosen by the
engineers and approved by the minister of public works, Hon. Dr. Sutherland. The balance of the farms
have very easy access to the route
chosen, so that almost every settler
is well satisfied.
FAREWELL PARTY
A farewell party was given last
Saturday evening to Mr. and Mrs.
Bousclle at Mrs. J. Lambert's house
by the St. Anthony's Church congregation.
Among those present were Mr, and
Mrs. Itouselle, Mr. and Mrs. Jerome
Tuythens, Mr. and Mrs. Raymond Tuy-
thens, Miss Appel, Miss Murphy, Miss

"PINAFORE"
Continued   from   pago   8
Mr. S. 'i. Lnngton was inimitable.
His the introduction of the ludicrous
al the right moment, tie and Mr;
de Peneler shared the comic, not to
mention thai much despised "Dick
Dendoye" win mi everybody spurned.
Air. It. Rsmonde-White was just the
laal word ia portraying a hated
trouble maker, lie was always on
hand when and where trouble could
be made. "Dick's" gestures, words,
and even smile, showed a part done to
a   turn.
Miss li.ve.lyn Cutler was at once
clever and pleasing, nnd sang charmingly—a   sweet  vocalist.
The sailors and marines, each of
the eight of them, acted well his part.
Their training was splendid.
The duets, trios and quartettes were
of a high order, particularly on the
part of Miss MacDonald and Mr, Holland,
To treat of the recital without reference to the costumes would be unjustifiable, No matter how critical
were the erii Ics they one and all
agreed that a more lovely galaxy of
millinery hud not graced the Ham-
mnnd stage. Perfection probably
found fullest ideal in the Instances
of "Josephine," "Little Buttercup,"
"Sir Joseph Porter" and many of his
lady suite. Little was left unsaid
for art. No detail, it was clear, had
been left to chance, but skill and untiring effort were early and continuously  employed.
The whole programme was vast, in
its organization and magnificent in
its result, The scenic effect was
very beautiful-—the admiration of all
present.
Miss Mnrsdeti deserves a specie.'
meed of praise for the very elaborate
scheme Of publicity work she did,
which everyone will concede could in
no particular have been improved
upon. Miss Marsden's Indefatigable
efforts contributed greatly to making
the Club's third annual performance
a success,
A triple wedding happily: Sir Joseph to his cousin *; Capt. Rackstrnw
to Josephine; Corcoran to Buttercup
—and "Dick Dendoye" was there, too!
Before the delightful scene closed
the ushers bore many and most beautiful bouquets of flowers which were
(more than one) presented to all the
major performers and tn many of tlie
minor ones, also.
"Dick Dendeye" received his several presentations—some of them suggestive of the comical—with the utterance "St. David's Day." While
the Lord High Admiral, with much
dignity, said "I am delighted with
this official presentation."
The lighting and heating was nil
that could be desired, same being
under the able superintendeney of
Messrs. J.  II. Ritchie and
There were many distinguished visitors from the cities.
It was very pleasing to notice the
peanuts on the curtain, "Maple Uidgc
Glee Club," and on either side
"Haney" nod "Hammond."
To the pianist, Mrs. (1, It. Gordon,
is due great credit, for the success of
ihe orchestra. An accomplished musician.
Mr. J. II. Ritchie, besides other
duties achieved as stage carpenter.
Two young ladies from Vancouver
gave exhibitions of fancy dancing,
which   proved   very   popular.
Mr. King did tlie painting of the
much-admired scenery.
Mrs, I hi ley was convenor of the
costume committee, and to her diligence and preparation of thc beautiful costumes, as also to her assistants
Mrs. lUtchto nnd Mrs, Lawrie, admiration   was   utiti.
The Maple Ridge orchestra did
honor to iiself and special favor lo
the (lleo Club.
For their \ft'y great kindness hi

Agricultural Society is each due very
sincere   thanks.

Parliament
COUNCIL HAS MANY DEPUTATIONS
Deputations occupied the whole
forenoon of the municipal council
meeting on Saturday—chief concern,
roads and bridges. The requests were
all noted for particular consideration
in view of the council's this week's
proposed inspection.
Messrs. ft. T. Mil telle tt and J. Jackson appeared for the Agricultural Society and asked for a grant to assist
their finances. Mr. Matchett pointed
out that the government hud cut down
their grants to the local shows by
about ."0 per cent und also that the
society had been put to additional expense by the blowing down of their
she;! v.liieh would cost them from
$150 to $200. Last year's grant was
iS-iOU he suggested it be made S500 this
yea r.
Mr. Jackson spoke much in the
same strain.
In the discussion that ensued Coun.
Brooks mentioned the claim of V.'hon-
nock and said he had always objected
to more than one municipal .show in
Maple Ridge and Coun. Best agreed
with him. Coun. (iambic also
thought one sufficient.
ftventuully on the motion of Coun.
Best, seconded by Coun. Owen, the
grant was fixed at $450 for 1(124.
Coun. Blols, Whonnock, did not arrive up lo this time and Coun. Best
did not think it fair to thresh out the
question of the Whonnock Fair grant
in his absence.
Mr. Hat Men/.ies, Mr. ft. T. Malehctt,
and Mr. Rue of Aberncthy & Lougheed
presented a petition with 80 signatures asking for an extension of Ihe
McKeehnie road into thc Aberiiethy
& Lougheed camp, lie said that
Abernethy and liOiigheed were prepared to give material assistance and
he suggested that the B. 0. Electric
Co. might also do so in view of the
great advantage the road would be
to them in their development work.
Mr. Men/.ios mentioned that In the
camp there were 300 of a population,
these people had no outlet at present
to the municipal trading centres as
an asset to the community he mentioned that the pay roll of the corn-
puny amounted to $40,000 a month.
Were there a road to the camp the
stores would benefit and people In the
villages and elsewhere might get employment and be able to get home
every night.
Mr. Matchett referred to the petition which none had refused to sign.
Mr. line submitted a sketch and profile of the road. lie alluded to the
laxes paid by A. & L. hist year, $1864
in all, and said ihe company was prepared to contribute in labor tlie equivalent of $!?000 to tlie work. The labor would bc their steam shovel on
lhe hill cut, he suggested.
Reeve Mclver considered it a very
liberal olTer, The road would nol
only open n new country but Ihey
must remember they had a settlement
at the other end.
On thc motion of councillors Best
and Brooks it was resolved to ask thc
municipal engineer to bring In an estimate as to what the municipality's
share would be to complete lhe road
to Ihe camp, working in conjunction
wllh Abernelhy & Roughed!, said estimate lo bc ready by nexl council
meeting.
Messrs. Harris and Pollock drew attention lo Ihe Hall's road and the
former suggested the council choose
a nice wol day to inspect it and come
in a wagon.
Rev. Mr. Reld and Mrs. I.ntid laid
lho unsanitary state of Callnghan fit,
through ihe lack of proper dvalnagi
before lhe counoll, Tlie municipal
hull is situate upon il nnd il wns a
positive menace to heallh.
Messrs. Qower eiephusi/.ed Hie dan-
geroua condition of a bridge on Raker
road north,
A large .Tupuncse deputation point
ed out   the unsafe slate of the  Hull!!
&n*^£maS83£SSBsm&TZB
road bridge which Coun. Gamble confirmed.
All these complaints will be investigated <ni the council's inspection
tour.
Mr. John West spoke on the washout on the Week's road and part of
his f]\ ke and n resolution was passed
that the clerk be instructed to communicate with the Minister of Public
Works at Ottawa in regard to a grant
for dredging the Alouette river from
the town line bridge to the Lillooet
rond, a distance of some two mil
and also, to write Mr. .Elgin Munroe,
M. P., on the subject.
Mr. West proposed to circulate a
petition for the signatures of those
affected by the North and South Alouette river floods by which money
could be borrowed from the provincial government and the cost assessed
against the land benefitted under the
River Protection Act.
Another complaint from Mrs, Evelyn .Jones, Whonnock, contained a
claim for $300 for loss by flooding, alleged to be caused by the negligence
of the council.
The council will view the situation.
An application by Killuni & Beck.
solicitors, for restoration of a client
to his lands on payment of the taxes
for which they were sold, was agreed
to on condition thut costs, Interest
and all expenses were paid.
Air. Zamowskl complained of the
state of lhe Whonnock road near his
property.     It will be inspected.
Under the Workmen's Compensation
Act it appears compulsory to have
first aid supplies at hand. The clerk
was authorized to purchase them.
Thc petition from Hammond for ;.
rural mail delivery from that centre
must go through the proeeedure of
application to the Post Office authorities at Ottawa, thence to be referred
to Mr. .1. P. Murray, District Superintendent, Vancouver, for report.
In reply to an oiler from Mr. W,
11. Ansell to cut cedar poles on municipal property for \y. cents a foot,
the clerk was directed to say that
the municipal price was 3 cents a
foot.
The school board was given permls-
sii n to lay tiles under lhe Dewdney
Trunk road in connection with the
draining of the High School.
Mr. I i road wood's application for a
road cast of Yennadon was considered. Councillor Best thought that
a better way- was to acquire a right
of way from the B. C. E. It. Company and make a road over the hill.
It. would give access to other settlers.
The B. 0, ft. R. Company will he
communicated with..
Plans of the proposed B. C, Telephone line on North Street, west of
Ontario Street were approved.
It was resolved to advertise for
oilers to repair the Week's road and
West's dyke.
It was decided to wrile Mr. I).
Brown to return the gravel used by
him in his school hoard contract ou

Board on Saturday, the High School
drainage contract was let to Mr. J,

XT KAHMOSTD THEATBB
"Racing: Hearts'* the Paramount production starring Agnes Ayres, Richard Dtx, Theodlre Roberts, and n
supporting coBt of welt known Players, Is a fast thrilling story written
by Byron Morgan, author of many
of Wally Reld's famous racing successes. Miss Ayre8 is the first woman of the screen to pilot a racing
car In an actual contest, and In which
she dlsplys remarkable Intrepidity as
a speed demon. You will see nn auto
race that ends In a hair raising smash
nnd a romance that ends In a heart
throbbing clinch. You'll like thorn
both. Agnes Ayres Is simply bewitching as the demon speed girl who
will bring you out of your seat cheering. You'll see a brand new Agnes
Ayres, bobbed hair, sparkling eyes
full of pep, In a real racy rollicking
speed romance. Theodore Roberts
plays the part of John Kent, father
of Virginia GlngeP Kent (Agnes Ay-
res) while Richard Dlx Is the motor
ayclo cop Roddy Smith. It is by far
the best racing picture of the season,
To say that the Rlnky Dinks con
cert, dance and box social was a huge
success Is but a mild phrase. Tho
success waa beyond all expectations
and a real good' slnglngcrowd, captained by Mr. Alex. Manzer, of Whonnock, gave burst to the choruses, especially to "Yes, we have no bananas"
Miss Velma Klmola, a real live Rlnky
Dink, acted as a most proficient
chairman.
The event of the evening was the
singing of little miss Sylvia Cart-
wright and her little brother John
Cartwrlght. His singing of that song
"Peanuts" was extremely talented,
and was encorted by his giving "You
ought to see me with my girl on
Sunday." We could have sat all
night listening to these two talented
juveniles. However, we feel sure they
will give us a return visit. Condensing our remarks on the efforts of
the young glrlsl they must be- congratulated on thelij efforts, also much
cited it Is due to the first efforts of
tbe newly formed orchestra, which
supplied the muftic for the singing
and dancing. They show promise of
real good combination and with practice will produce muslo of a high
■degree.
Friends will be sorry to hear of
the serious relapse of Mr. J. Gaugh<
ler. We sincerely hope that he will
recover and be amongst us again.
There Is to be the annual general
meeting of the Albion Community
Hall. Residents are advised to attend as there is lots of business, also
election of officers for the ensuing
year.

FRIDAY, MARCH  7,  1924
THE NORTH FRASER UOAD
Del us not forge! the squlrrolt as
it were, Agassi/ 1ms u definite programme for 1984. There is the Harrison Hot Springs Hotel, location of
ii fruit cannery und n road along ihe
north side of the l-'raser, which virtually menus the completion of the
I rank road from Harrison Mills to
Agassiz. Every citizen should understand this local programme and do
his best to help it along. It is due
all to give their best in thought and
effort.
This week we nre accounting for
what the Good Roads Convention
passed upon at their session at Port
Moody on Friday last. The resolution has been passed, but that only
sets a more urgent duty. Are we to
fold our arms and act as though it
were never a concern whether the
road is built or not, this year or ever?
This highway is an absolute necessity ami its construction should be
this year's effort. For the most cogent reasons delay should not take
place. Why should those who want
to reach Agassiz have to depend on
an irregular ferry and at that have to
go far out of their way to reach
either destination1?
The municipality in general nnd Agassiz in particular is entitled to its
own in the onward, Help them to
take their place in the furrow of
their need.

.Scarcely was the magnificent Hnm-
nmml 'J'hentre completed than,
pride of accomplishment, a glee club
came Into existence nnd its sympathies and elt'orts enlisted to put on a
very ambitious and equally unusual
musical programme. Quite as though
proud of so being made the first district in B.C., tlie club displuyed greut
energy and unanimity in getting up
Gilbert and Sullivan's "Mikado."
Tn many alike in the club and lliose
outside its membership the task
seemed far too elaborate. 13ut
"where there's a will there's a way."
Ardor, determination, notion and persistent effort won tile day anil soon
our delighted citizen-body pronounced tlie recital as a greut musical
triumph, Not alone was the performance lauded at home but many
critics from the city emphatically
pronounced upon its special merit.
Hail those who were at such great
pains and anxiety any idea of what
would follow this first effort they
could huve stepped with princely dignity.
basl year to even greater success
the club put on the "Pirates of Penzance" to the delight of citizens and
visitors. It won unstinted praise.
But magnificent and masterful as
both the former classics, it was left
fur March 1st, 11)24, to put tiie cope-
stone of admiration on a play that all
will concede could not have been excelled, if even, equalled—it Is a question if any other district in B, C. has
attempted one of these performances,
let alone carry three to signal triumph.
.Saturday evening, long before the
hour lo begin, the vnst hall was
packed, fully 100 of tlie 000 present
having to stand. It wns evident
that all were expecting the display
of local talent to be of a very high
order, nor were any to be disappointed.
Hy 8,05 Mr. ,1. 0. Welch, the musical
director, led the Maple Ridge orchestra, the airs quite captivating.
Since probably every home in tlie
entire district and its environs was
represented it is not necessary to
depici I lie scenes. The dramatis persona'  follows;

Mr. .1. f. Welch, conductor of the
Vancouver Operatic Soolcty, wns, ns
mi iniih previous occasions, tlie unanimous choice as musical director. Difficulties there were sometimes seeming insuperable, incident tu removals
from the district, etc., but determination und genius won. Mr. Welch's
management showed decided skill,
and In no sense more than in his
selection nf the cast.
But nut all, indeed, is involved in
tlie select inn of a director, fur, to win
universal encomium every care must
lie taken in the choice of singe manager. Fortunately there wns not the
least concern here. for one nf the
members, Mrs. A. Ferguson, hud, on
bulb former occasions, won the admiration of everyone on account nf
the splendid grasp she displuyed In
every detail. Besides natural ability
uf ti high order Mrs. Ferguson took
a careful course in stage work, anil,
following her training, wns manageress for some time in Great London.
It delighted all tn have Mrs. Ferguson
consent again to assume this third
year's training, especially as lhe tusk
is heavy nnd the burden great. If
pains is genius taking every day form
then our manageress met both the
need und tlie ideal.
Invaluable to have enthusiasm, but
infinitely better to pass it on—in
this incident it wns passed with no
stinted hand to all in  the play.
Due to say thut none but the performers enn ever realize what infinite
pains, patience and skill were em-
ployed in the three or four months'
preparation to stage so elaborate a
performance. Consider the designing
alone of color and elaborate nnd very
beautiful costumes. Great praise is
due the master hnnd and mind that
gave Maple Kldge so splendid a performance.
It. was Wednesday evening last
that the careful (raining found its
setting when tlie costumes were worn
for the first time. Not then for any
performer to doubt the quality of
success.
For weeks in advance scores hnd
planned on coming from Westminster
and Vancouver d a delightful night
following n day of spring enabled
all to carry out their purpose. It is
not enough tn sny thnt nil the major
parts were well sustained, for the
minor were, -without a single excep-
tlnn, true to cast, and in fine Hie
remark was heard on every hand:
"All have won my admiration."
Mr. C. It, Holland, acting ns Capt.
Corcoran, played a deep-water enp-
tnin tn perfection. His commands
were clear nnd bore no semblance of
being overdone. He was fully captain
nf the ship and all un board. His
singing was a  hit.
Mr. Holland may be counted on
always us n winning number. Sir
Joseph, the Lord High Admiral (Mr.
I,. G. Rayner) acted fo a dot his port,
his regalia, paraphernalia, and figure
considerably resembling that, of the
Hern of Trafalgar. Ills dramatization wns perfect nnd his voice loud
or soft and pleading as the ease required. "Faultless" was the monosyllabic judgment of the evening's critics.. Mr. Rnyner's skill was that nf
a professional.
Mr. (Instling added tn lhe opinion
of admiration ns set. fur him on two
previous occasions. His acting was
with zest ami vim. Ills plea was
effect lie us a suitor. He is very popular. ,
Mrs. I). M. Unrtnol was naturalness
itself. If nny thought this performance lucked plot nnd depth then the
performance of "Buttercup's" role
fullv set up proof tu the contrary,
Willi "Josephine" she won special admiration from Start tn finish.
It. will be remembered Hint, Mrs,
Hartnel took n lending role on both
previous occasions,
Miss J. MticDtmtild In her singing
aud acting alike a professional and
nut un amateur. Her part was one
nf flrsl Importance bul from no quarter did we hear other lhan words nf
praise,   she captivated by I leu-
cney  nf  feeling. ...
