KA*fcOW2»r.if r.\n?Y
On Friday a very enjoyable even-
lug wan spent lin (he Agricultural
Hall, when the two school rooms nf
Mr. Morrow and Mr. Brown he hi
their Hallowe'en party. A very large
number of parents, older "brothers
and aimers attended this party. The
evening was spent in games and,
later, dancing. Music was furnished
by the Misses Robinson and Rankin,
and Mrs. Piobert and Mrs. R, D.
Clark, while Master Albert Clork
played the violin In a very credit*
al»l», manner,
A weM appreciated lunch was served about 11 P-m. and the children as
well as the older folks all' seemed to
enjoy "the feed."
frtucht ctertit is due the teachers
and those, who assisted them tl making the party the success It was. If
the people and their children could
only assemble more often and enjoy
some of the small joys of life such
as they did that evening. It 'would
sure  strengthen   the  community  life.
POFVY   DAY
As Saturdey next Is Poppy Day.
this is Just a reminder that this yaar
It is under the auspices of the 1.0.
I).K. and Is a guarantee of it being
bona   fide.
There is hardly any other organization that has stood by the returned
men and their dependents as staunchly as the I.O.D/E., whether it has
been a case of Keeping green the
memory of their wartime set vice or
rendering practical assistance to them
or their families. One can feetl certain that when he or she purchases
a poppy on Saturday that every cent
will go to the assistance of our
needy returned men and their dependents who may find themselves In
difficulty  during  this  coming  winter.
The fact cannot be too strongl'p emphasised   that   every   poppy   sold   .has
been made by a diuatiled soldier. Buy
a poppy and help  the cause along.

crowd.
The dance commenced about 9 p.m
undue the diection of the floor manager Mr, Horry Fooks. Capable judges

FOOTBALL   MATCH
On Wednesday last the High school

Thin is the second encounter between

reads one win each and one loss, the

With a view of providing an alternate route for the "Dewdney Trunk
road from! RUBkln east, eliminating
the exceedingly dangerous portions
astound the Stave rtver and over the
Red bridge, surveys for a new road
have been competed by provincial
government engineers and forwarded to the department of public works
for consideration. In this work, surveys were made for no fewer than
four different routes, rill of which
are claimed to be much more suitable
than the present grade. All leave
trp present road at a point near Rus-
kln, and Instead of going, fiver the
hill follow to a certain extent the
Cananlan pacific Railway tracks
over the flats. One route Is close to
the railway, while the .others are
located at verying distances away
from It If the proposal is approved
by the department, it wtt| mean the
construction of an entirely new road
bed, which would include a fill of
about 12 feet In depUi over the flats
This fill would bring the level of the

In addition to providing a much
more aafe 'road, the new route would
bo considerably shorter. From Rus-
kln to the point where tho roada
wold again Join the present route It
is a distance of dose to five miles.
while the one proposed It would he
about 7000 feet, or slightly over one
mile. The old road 'Is extremely
narrow in spots and there la a possibility of making It wider, while It
also contains some sharp curves
which must be negotiated carefully.
With the new route, It la stated, aU
these disadvantages would be eliminated.

(With   no  apologlos   to   a   young   man   who   writ**—hem—poetry.)
Young men of today  In  tholv   hand-mo-down   duds,
In   their   JuOkfltS   of   shoddy   d rah   tweod.
In   their   antoloon   cuffs   over   tan  shoes  or  buff,
Look Quite rakitiii  and  wlcltel   Indoed,
I tut   they  are  no  so   rakish  or  rockloss,  you  see.
For   all   that   their   style   Indicates,
Their wages are  small  and  tiiey  spend   it   most   all
In   pooling   at   ha: bur   shop   : ales.
So   lhey   don't   ever   have   any   kudos   to   lend,
Or to buy  them  some  really right   clothes,
When   they're   out   of   a   job.   each   such   Johnnie   or   Boh
Goes  down   on   ills   uppers,   lie   knows.
Sometimes   they   don't   pay   r. -p  tho  eats   (hey   do   take,
JiiHt  fancy  one  eating of  yon.
A big  healthy  nob,   who  Is  willing to roo,
Tlie  person   who   winter's   him   through.
NO,   he's   not   Quito   so   wicked   (,r   rakish,   maybe.
As   his   bangs   and   his   swaggeu   would   say,
But   a   Modern    Youth—cheap,  weak—Us   tho   truth,
Does   the   Modem   Girl   need   him   today'.'
Drive a car, of course, u sit-down  for Ills,
No   shovel,   no  axe,   no   handspike-  or   drill,
He's  a   right   modern   guy.   keen   to  scoot  or   to   fly,
Take   chances   on   getting   a    spill.
Say, girls,   are   you   wlllitifi   to Rtnnd  this po-et,
Who rhymes    In    the    Weekly    Qnsetlo
And spreads   ins   Infliction   iii   vulgarost   diction,

A special meeting of the Haney W*.
T. was held in the C.O.O.F. Hall, Wed.
afternoon at 3 p.m., with Mrs. Adair
in the chair.
It was unanimously voted to nport-
ion $20, to the crippled children's
fund, a call that is deserving of the
best support of every citizen. This
movement was initiated by the Central Park W. I. quite a year ago, and
has very properly come to popular
recognition. Many of the crippled
children have already been cared for
through its kindness of the various
Prov. Women's Institutes and fully
$1,000,00 has hy them been collected.
The sum of $5.00, was voted for
providing a poppy wreath for Armistice Day, and a resolution was adopted authorizing the Memorial Committee to arrange u public service
to be held at the Maple Ridge
j Memorlnl at 11 a.m. on Armstice Day.
All Institute members are to express
their patriotism by attending in a
body.
The business finished, the Chairman
pleasingly introduced Dr. Lamb of tlie
Prov. Home Department, who spoke
on "Tuberculosis:lts Prevention and
Care". For an hour the Lecturer held
to closest attention every member of
his audience. The nature of this malady, causation, early symptoms, preventative measures, etc. sources of infection were severally made to bristle
with  interest and utility.
The Doctor insisted on early diagnosis and treatment, He also touched
Upon cancer and goitre.
At the close of the address Mrs. F.
B, White moved a very cordial vote
of thanks to Dr. Lamb, which passed
enthusiastically.
It is just such splend id meetings
that the Institute indies are having
right  along.    If there  are  any  who
wife of Mr. Thos. Palmer, was called ha^ ;not foh""Lin  me^?f*thiP  we
■would suggest thut they little delay
in death at 0.45 this a.m. in the Royal
Columbian Hospital, New Westminster, whither she had gone on Sunday
morning last. Two days later Mr.
Palmer got a message thut serious
symptoms had developed and so he
hurried to the bedside, which lie did
not leave till death had saddened the
scene. When hope was despaired, Mrs.
Kelley, the aged mother was called
from Portland, and although every
haste was employed her daughter
pitHsed away 15 minutes before her
arrival.
This Intelligence will occasion deep
sorrow in Hammond, Coquitlam nnd
far around as deceased was known
quite widely, nnd as widely esteemed.
For her kindly, sympathetic life and
he cheer she brought to others in an
hour of grief ami misfortune Maude
Mary Palmer will be by a great many
borne In very tender memory.
The funeral will he held on Saturday at St. John's Church, Maple Uldge
at 2,80,
in becoming enrolled.
SHALL WE HAVE AN HOSPITAL?
The outstanding municipal question
today is that propounded in above
caption. The Gazette does not—never
did—dictate policies. It, as in duty
bound, may try to indicate a trend
or offer suggestions that may lend
to healthy discussion and then following a public parliament, as it
were, put the issue quite definitely
before the citizens.
The matter of a public discussion is
set down for Tuesday evening in the
I.O.O.P. Hall, at 8 p.m. sharp. The
Committee have for weeks been laboring to secure data so as to present
Its report. Dr. W. B, Burnett, than
whom few are more conversant with
hospitals nnd their conduct will deliver an address on "The Place of the
Hospital in  the Community".
Dr. 'Burnett's address alone will cull
for n full attendance and justice to
the committee, they have taken all
conceivable pains to prepare the cuse.
Let every citizen (ladies included)
make a point of being present, for
upon the decision of this meeting
j bungs an issue witii momentous im-
liort.

PROMISES  TO  ASOUSX  TAX
An avowal of party policy on several public Ihfuipw was made at tlie
annual, meeting of tho L!tiorn!-f'on-
seryatlve party .it Vmtoiin by W.J,
Bowser, K.G, loader of tho onposU
tlon. Ho said that oii« of the first
steps of tbe Conservatives, if ie-
turned to power, WOli'd bo the abolition of the pcrsnjuil property tax,
an   lssiiti   recently   In   tho  public  eye.
Mr. Bowser Said that this tax was
not. an equitable one and should Rlv->
way to tho Income tax. He outlined
its history, stating that In 1888 n
was established. When tho Conservative party came Into office it wa»
on the statute books. In !!'"<> Hon.
Mr. Tatlow, then milliliter of finance,
increased the tax from one-half of
one per cent, to one per cent, because of financial conditions* Two
yeans later tliisr was reduced to three-
quarters of one per cent. Upon Mr.
Tatftow's retirement, Mr, Bowser assumed tho (finance portfolio in addition to1 that of attorney-general, and
reduced the tax to one per cent. When
the Brewster government assumed thf
reins in 191T the tax was doubled, at
which   figure  it  now  stands,
IMPOST  WILL   WOT  AmOI   TI0X-
EXKBXr   OR   FABIDIXB   18   XBPOXT
Victoria, Oct. 81.—That a gasoline
tax of two cents Per gallon, which
will result In about $500,000 accruing
to the revenue of the province, »
great deal of which will be from outside sources, wH'i be brought down
at this session of the legislature, is
regarded as a certainty.
The monep so raised will be earmarked for road-bufllldtng purpose*.
and the1 proposed tax will loom largo
in the road programme of the government, which will be brought down
by the minister of public works during  the  session.
It Is stated that the tax will not
affect fishermen, stationary engines,
or gasoline used purely for agricultural  purposes.
The figures are based on the turnover of the company which supplied
60 per cent, of tht? gasoline used in
British Columbia last pear, and it ts
expeotod that consumption In 13M
■wtia be greatly increased through increased   tourist   traffic,
IN line with new legislation being
1 passed in the various States of the
American Union aimed to diminish
the alarming number of accidents
through reckless driving of automobiles, particularly on level railroad
crossings, the Board of Railway
Commissioners for Canada has requested the Canadian Pacific Railway to submit information bearing
upon similar dangerous practices by
motorists on various portions of its
system so that use may be made of
Ihe information with a view to endeavoring, through education, to
minimize the occurrence of such dangerous practices.
In a Bulletin issued by the Board
of Railway Commissioners on June
15th, 1923, 54 cases of danger at protected crossings are cited for the
period October, 1922, to May, 1923.
and of these fifty arc declared to
have been due to the carelessness of
motor drivers. "Motor accidents,"
says the bulletin, "are becoming
more frequent. Every sane motorist
deplores this. If accidents are to be
lessened, the sane motorist must educate the culpably negligent motorists/'
All highway crossings are by law
protected by signs, and they are only
dangerous when the driver of the automobile makes them so. They are
not dangerous if motorists will take
a small part of the care they exercise
in turning on a city street. It is the
motcriit's carelessness that makes
them dangerous, The train has right
of way. Everyone knows what may
happen if the plainly seen warnings
are disregarded at a point where the
motor car can stop while the train
cannot.
The surprising part of It also is
that safeguards and precautions
erected by the railroads are so often
entirely ignored. Time after time
newspaper reports show that crossing alarm bells, barrier gates and
even watchmen waving "stop" signals mean nothing to the nun in the
Cteraity
motor car who is determined to beat
the train to it.
Coroners' juries ire usually more
discriminating and put the blame
where it belongs, but the general
public, seeing the usual newspaper
heading, "Train Crashes into Motor
Car," starts out with the impression
that the train must necessarily be to
blame, when, as a matter of fact, a
fairer statement of the case would
be "Another Auto (lets in Path of
Fast Train." Quite as often, too, the
heading should read, "Flying Auto
Dashes into Moving Train," Frequently the auto strikes the train
well behind the engine, a convincing
indication that the motorist too frequently treats the railroad crossing
with the same casual notice that he
gives the intersection of a quiet
country road.
Out of 32 level crossing accidents
that happened in Ontario during
1922, 22 were the result of the motorist not heeding the stop signal, and
seven were the result of running into
the lowered gates or actually passing
under them after they were lowered
or while they were being lowered.
One man had no headlights and apparently did not see the gates were
down while the remainder in other
ways tried to cross in front of tht
engine in order to save time.
In an editorial on this question, the
Toronto Star says that: "In a country like this, with its magnificent distances, and railway systems with
twenty thousand miles of trick, the
time may never come when all level
crossings will be eliminated. With
motor cars in use everywhere there
is no railway crossing so remote but
that « motorist may use it. It is hit
business to see that he doet so at t
safe moment. It it his business for
two reasons: (1) because it is the
presence of him and his car at that
time and place, and not the coming
of the train, which creates the risk of
a crash; and (2) because if there
should be a crash he and his car will
be crushed, and not the train."
GIVING the shortlist direct line between eastern and western cities, and not only reducing cost of
operation to the railway, but also saving many hourt for business men travelling between eastern
and western Canada, the Long Lake cutoff of the Canadian National Railways will be ready for
operation on December lit, it it expected. By constructing 80 miles of a cutoff, joining the former Canadian Northern main line through Ontario with the Canadian National Transcontinental line, a saving
of 70.2 miles will be made in the distance between Winnipeg and Montreal, while the saving between
Winnipeg and Toronto will be 102.6 miles. Instead of having to follow the bend of the former Canadian
Northern line down to Port Francis and Port Arthur, trains to Toronto will travel over the Transcontinental line to Naklna and thence down the cutoff to Long Lake, the moat northerly point of the Canadian Northern former main line, v Business men travelling to Montreal from Winnipeg will thus save
three hours and those travelling to Toronto slightly over four hours.
