An additional hydrant will be
placed between Young and llobisoti

The verdict of the Coroner's Jury

The Cultns Lake Park proposition

the resolution "That many learned
from Mr. Charleson, representing
the Xorih Pacific Lumber Co. that
the said Co. are willing to grant
certain privileges on their leased
lands at Cultns Lake, therefore
the municipality of the city of Chilliwack would humbly request the
North Pacific Lumber Company to
execute an agreement, granting the
city and the rural municipality of
Chilli whack the privilege of entering
upon the south half and the northwest quarter of section 26 (except-
inat that portion which lies west of
the lake) and using said lands for
park purport--*, during the continuance of their lease with the Dominion Government, and that a copy

A Check Artist Checked City Water Supply to be
Increased At Once
Rpsedale hall team, augmented
hy a numlier of paid artists defeated the local team here last Thursday hy a score of eleven runs'to four.
The Rosedale boys would have shown
better sportsmanship if they had
left their "specials''off their lineup.
After playing a full season with the
home talent and winning the cup.
it is not to their credit to spoil a
rather enviable record, hy adopting
such a course. It is regrettable that
the lietter judgment of the club had
not prevailed. We hope to see the
league started next season under
stronger and more definite rules.

The Editorial Viewpoint
A Personal Word wan our Readers:
The Free Press, it's Ideal, it's Politics, it's
Purpose and Hepe
We lake much pleasure in presenting to you; readers of the New Km,
people of Chilliwack and of the far-
famed Kras.-r Valley, the first issue
of the Chilliwack Free Press. A
paper with a now name, published
in n new ottice by a comparatively
new I'Mitor, in a much enlarged
and improved form, on ft new cylinder newspaper press, from a complement of new type. Six weeks
ago, the now editor ami proprietor
of the Free Press arrived here from
Pilot Mound, Man., and in taking
over the New Kra did so with ft firm
belief and the growing importance
ami future possibilities of this City
and Valley. With this in mind, a
newspaper and job printing plant
has been installed seldom equalled
in li city of this size, with which
equipment — and the ability and
energy we will, we hope, Im) able tu
concentrate oil the work—win for
us your approval and co-operation
in (he forward step we have taken
in the newspaper field in the Harden
City of British Columbia.
In this day of competition, quality and service, count for much. To
possess these assets, the newest and
and most up-to-date equipment, together with knowledge gained by
practical experience, are first requisites. We modestly claim these
for ourselves, thus befitting us to
meet the growing needs of the City
and the individual needs of all.
In addition to the foregoing and
to what we said in our " Introductory," we also adopt at this time a
political policy. Many readers have
been curious to learn what the attitude of this paper would he on the
question of politics. At the outset
we wish to state that the Chilliwack
Free Press bus not been been bought
or pledged to support, any party, or
either candidate in this election.
Nevertheless, having given both attention and thought to the various
important issues now submitted U
tho electors, and having acquired
some knowledge of the needs of the
country and the liesl available means
of meeting and serving them, the
Free Press has decided to support,
with whatever ability it may possess,
the Liberal party during this election. And we will do so, so long,
and so long only, as we consider
our conclusions correct. In making
this statement it does not mean
that the Conservative party or it-
policy will l>c abused. AH will
meet with nothing but fair treatment in these columns : " Charity
toward all and malice toward none.*'
We propose todiscusspolitical questions dispassionately and without
prejudice. Fulsome flattery and
virulent recrimination are alike
foreign to our taste, and we venture
to hope that as time goes on, our
honesty of purpose and fairness of
method will lie acknowledged by
our readers ot all political shades
of opinion.
We take it that the great majority
of (he people of this favored spot in
It. C, are broad in outlook, fair
minded, and above the adoption of
of small tactics toward each other,
arising out of an honest diffeience
of opinion on any subject.
Regardless of nil other interests,
our first interest is our City of Chilliwack, and all that pertains to its
material, social, and moral advancement. The Chilliwack Free Press
will not l»e a party to, or countenance to (be least degree, any politi-
•iiI or oilier faction in any matter
»f local interest or development.
This I'ity, like all others, to grow
ami produce the best it has, must
have the united and Undivided sup*
port n| all its citizens nil the time.
We trust that we have made our
position clear to all. Wo will endeavor to merit your support and
Hint an ever increasing degree of
the favor ami patronage of the people of the Fraser Valley will Iw extended to the Chilliwack Free Press.

Lord Abingdon offered one day,

he had previously llxed upon—correctly, The buy was puxsled fur a minute, hut, tailing a piece of chalk, he

Mr. John Cxrlett, the well-known
newspaper owner, christened one of

sire was Vclasquex, named after the
great Spanish painter, and the dam

Num.  xxxii, 23—Commentary  Pre. j
pared by Rev, D. M. Stearns.
We have not yet reached tha end ofj
the sorrows of Jeremiah, ami thesu <
today's lesson seem to have been some
uf the greatest, but all were because
of the truth ami the God of truth (Isit.
Ixv, IU) whoso witness he was. It has
been a long lime since he ceased lo||
complain of his suffering* for the
trtiin s sake, hut he still awuib* the
lull glory of the kingdom which by the1
spirit be foresaw uud predicted. Many
others have come ami gone, uml tiie'
kingdom is not yet. uud the sufferings
continue for the fuithful, but "thi't
Lord (i"il oi recompenses ahull surely
requite" (Jer. li, fail, and the suffer-
ings are not worthy to be compared
with the glory tlmt ahull be revealer1
(Horn, viii, 1«; I Pet. iv, 13).
It seems easy to say it, hut it is true
that suffering for the truth's suke
great privilege uml will bring ua great]
glory in His Kingdom (IMiil, i, si. II
Cor. iv, 17, IB).     Alter   Jehoiakim'

buriiil or as good aa none (Jer. xxxvi,
.'to), hia .son, .Icconinh, reigned three]
months,  which  was  about tin.- same
as no reign ut nil, and was then curried captive to Kuliylon, where he was
a prisoner thiity-six years.   The books
of II Kings uml of Juruniiah end with
tlm   record   of   lliu   deliverance   from
prison   after  tlmt   lom-   period.    His.
lather's brother, ZedcKiau, was then;
made  king,  ami   lu-    reigned    eleven
years, hut neither he nor his servants
nor  the  people    of    tin-    lanil   would'
hearken to the words   ol    the Lord
(veree 2), ulthotigh they professed to,
want Jeremiah to pray for them (verse
.1),  and  more than    once    Zedekiah
consulted him (verse IT; xxxviii. M).

After many days—how lottg they
must have seemed—the kim- sent (or
Jeremiah nud inquired, "Is there any
word from the Lord?" (Verse 171.
There waa no new wont, hut just Ihe
former one concerning the captivity in
Ilnhylon. Jeremiah took occasion to
ask why he had been imprisoned mid

to where he hud been, so he was left
for a time in the court of the prison
(verses 18-81)—just a breathing space
ere his persecutors would ugttin seek
his life, but it would be helpful while
it lusted. Note the daily piece of
bread of verse 31. and let us learn the
lesson of daily bread uml duily

A   very   pood   story   is   told   of   Mr
Vllwiinl and nn  irishman,  who was
one nf  his  models  a  few   yi-ars  ago
The latter was a magnificent specimen of physical manhood, hut he suf.
("red (nun rheumatism and talked
ibotit his tiri'a.ly constantly. One
day Mr. Allward waa taking a cast ol
the man's neck, but either he or his
assistant overlooked putting on the
rustomary coat of grease. On at-
'empting to remove the plaster it wa«
'ound that it hud apparently harden-
si there to stay. So they fell to with
knives and other Irstiuments and
hammered   and   cut   it    away.   The
Irishman   lost   some   hair   and    had
|iiite an experience.
Some time alter the model dtsap-
neared, and Mr. Allward did not see
htm for ninny a day. Then he met
him and asked him if he remembered
the ca-t incident.
"Renumber it!" said the Irishman
"Faith, how should I tie forgettin' it-
\n' would ye believe it, Mr. Allward.
I've nlver had a touch of   the   rheu-
ntities from that day to this."
It hod been cast out, so to speak.

'anada curtly staled she had nu sug-
