Stanley Richdale, a laborer employed at the Alaska Packers' Association cannery at Point Roberts,
sustained injuries while at work on
Monday morning last which resulted
in his death twelve hours later.
Richdale was !n the employ of the
contractors who are roofing ike cannery with a patent composition and
shortly after going on duty Monday
morning slipped and fell from the
roof to the planking below, a distance
of forty feet.
Dr. King, of Ladner, was at once
summoned and hastened to the
scene. First aid had already been
applied. It was found on examination that the man had incurred a
concussion of the brain and a fracture at the base of the skull beside
minor injuries.
A steam tug was employed to remove the sufferer to the hospital at
Bellingham, but despite every care
he passed away at ten o'clock the
j same evening.
It ls understood Richdale was insured under the State of Washington
insurance  regulations.
EBURNE, Point Orey, May 29 ���
The first lacrosse game of the season in Eburne was played on the
Oak street grounds Saturday last,
when the Eburne intermediates met
the Westham Island aggregation.
The face-off was at halfpast ten In
the morning. Considerable doubt
had been expressed previous to the
game as to which team was the
stronger, but once it was started
that doubt vanished. Eburne proved easily superior to the Islands,
boating them by a score of eight
/���oals to one. The local Intermediate
team ls practically the 1912 team

Strenuous opposition by Councillor
Lewis to the municipal approval of
plans for a subdivision of the Pemberton estate disturbed the usually-
calm and dignified deliberations of
the Delta Municipal Council at its
regular session Monday afternoon.
The plans as submitted by Mr. H. A.
McDonald called for a forty-five foot
roadway, and Councillor Lewis, who
had taken the trouble to measure
the distances between the stakes,
found barely forty feet. With Mr.
McDonald holding up the surveyor's
plans and Mr. Lewis his measurement, the councillors were in a quan-
dry. Finally the -meeting adjourned
lor thirty minutes to allow all hands
to visit the scene, where it was found
that Councillor Lewis' contention was
correct.    The plans did not pass.
Reeve Benson reported having
taken up the matter of transfer of
a portion of roadway rendered necessary in straightening a jog in the
Fairview road with Mr. Frank M->
Kenzie. Some doubt as to thc proper
procedure seemed to exist and it was
decided to allow the matter lo stand
over pending a visit to the actual
scene by the member. The Reeve
also reported having interviewed Mr.
Dominic Burns, who bad experienced
in the basement of his residence leakage similar to that at the reservoir.
Mr. Burns had secured the services
of an Eastern expert with satisfactory results, and though the present
address of this engineer was unknown

Mr. Eldon Brodie appeared to
register a complaint as to the un-
��� "ist-ctory water service on the
Walden road. His pipe was at a
dead end, and he requested the completion of the circuit hy joiniug the
Slough and Fairview road pipes. The
matter was left in abeyance pending
a report from the water superintendent, who was Instructed to make
arrangements .with the New Wes'.-
minster engineer to Inspect the entire  system.

Richmond   Municipality   Cannot  See
lt��  Way Clear to  Undertake
Allotted Share.
Matters have come to a standstill
in regard to the establishment of
the proposed ferry service owing to
the inability of Richmond Municipal
Council to fall in line with the puns
as outlined by the government. The
suggestion of the Department of Public Works calls for the expenditure
by Richmond of a considerable sum
for road improvement purposes to
make the project practicable.
It is contended by Reeve Bridge
and his council that they are already
contributing a large sum on road
connections which will assist the
scheme, and as Delta and Vancouver
are the two districts benefited by the
establishment of such a service they
cannot see their way clear to expend
the large sum requested in the departmental suggestion.
It has now developed upon the
local development institutions such
as the Board of Trade and Council
to bring the matter to the notice of
the government, asking different arrangements for the provision of na:'.
connections from Woodwards to the
macadamized portion of Fraser avenue.
The following communication received by Mr. S. W. Fisher, secretary of the local Board of Trade,
from Mr. F. Carter Cotton, M.P.P.
for Richmond, elucidates the position:
May 27th,  1913.
The Secretary,
Delta Board of Trade.
Dear Sir,���In reply to your favor
of the 23rd inst., the delay in tbe
prosecution of the work you refer to
is, I am informed, caused because
the Richmond council cannot see its
way clear to contribute to the scheme
the very considerable sum that the
Department of Works suggested it
should do. That Municipal Council
is however spending a good deal of
money on road improvements which
will be of service to the proposition
of the ferry and road connections but
cannot undertake the much larger
project which it was asked to do.
It is only proper to mentijn that
Reeve Bridge and his colleagues have
from the first mention of the through
road and service stated tha-. they
could not undertake what it was proposed they sbould do, so that there
has been no backing down un their
part in regard to this matter.
_ have made representations to tbe
department of the above circumstances and I would Suggest that the
Deka council and Board of Trade
of your district should urge the gov-
ernme: t to recognize the fact that
Richmond is not able to do the work
and arrange accordingly. Delta Is
far more interested in the project
than Richmond can be; indeed, some
residents of the latter say the scheme
cannot  benefit them.
In any case it is quite clear that
Richmond will not undertake the
share which was suggested and If
the enterptize is not to be delayed
steps must be taken accordingly.
Yours truly,
���On a charge of assault causing
grievous bodily harm, a halfbreed
appearing before Justices of the
Peace J. B. Burr and H. J. Kirkland
in the Ladner police court on Monday, May 26th, was committed for
trial at the -New Westminster assizes.
The evidence of the complainant,
William Chewassin, a well-known
figure at the Indian reservation, and
of Dr. King, the mediral attendant,
tended to show that while in a
drunken frenzy an aggravated assault had taken place which had resulted in serious injury to the older
The assault had taken place last
fall, but further outbreaks while in
an intoxicated state had so terrorized
the complainant that the charge was
preferred. An evidence of the desperate character of the accused was
exhibited iu bis attempts to break

lock was the result.

the case was conducted and such
weird expressions as "halo cunitux"
aud "halo tillikum" with vivid pantomime gestures pervaded the court

offices here It was stated that the
vessel's 900 passengers had been removed.
Apparently the ship is doomed on
account of the deep waters surrounding the rock. A heavy fog
still prevails.

which will be served up to enthusiasts during the next five weeks.
This schedule was arrived at and

Ladner and Westham Island teams
at a meeting which took place in the
otfices of the Ladner Trust and Investment Company, Limited, on Wednesday evening. In the absence ot
Mr. J. Williamson, Mr. Rudie Kittson occupied the chair.
No better Indication of the deep
interest taken in local lacrosse matters has been exhibited than the
large number of delegates present
at the meeting. Enthusiasm prevailed throughout and increased public interest with corresponding gate
receipts  is  anticipated.
A communication from the East
Delta Shamrocks tendering their
resignation from the league owiug to
inability to field a full team was
discussed and the resignation accepted. The guarantee of ten dollars
was declared forfeited to the league.
The referee for the initial match
of the new schedule will probably be

of play. This takes place on Friday, June 6th.
The only really knotty point for
solution at the meeting was the diversion of points entailed by tho
withdrawal of the Shamrocks. Westham Island were finally given two
points in consideration of their meritorious win from the Beavers while
the lone tally secured by the latter
team from the Shamrocks does not
count.    The league standing is:
Won Lost
Westham Island      1        0

with five games to play.
The signing up of several East
Delta stars by the Ladner aggregation will materially affect the relative strengths of the two contending
teams and the meeting on Friday
evening is eagerly looked forward to.
The Beavers will wind up their
preliminary training with an exhibition game with the West End intermediates of New Westminster. This
fixture will take place on Tuesday
evening. The ball will be faced at
6.30 p.m.

Over Votes of Conservative

OTTAWA, May 26. The government Highways Act was on Friday
passed by the Senate Liberal majority and sent back to the Commons accompanied by a message asking the government to concur In the
changes made. A curious situation
developed in the Upper House before the bill was disposed of. On
Thursday night the Liberal majority bad adopted two amendments,
one providing that the money voted
Sbould be divided between the provinces on the basis of the population
and the other striking out Clause 6,

His object,  of course,   was
the majority to kill the measure outright in the Senate.
Sir George Uoss. the Liberal leader, who was equally determined that
the bill should go back to the Commons, then moved the third reading.
Then Senator Lougheed raised the
point of order that a member of the
Opposition could not move the third
reading. This was debated during the
entire morning sitting. Early in the
afternoon Speaker Landry ruled In
favor of Senator Loughepd's contention.
Sir George appealed from the ruling to the Senate, with the. result
tbat the Speaker's decision was reversed on a vote of 44 to 19. The
bill was then given a third reading
and a vote of 45 to 18, the curious
spectacle being witnessed of Liberals voting for the bill and the Conservatives against It.
Subsequently a message to the
Commons asking that body to concur
1n the amendments was adopted.

Senator Bostock Outlines His Attitude���Senator Pope Maintains
Government Has Mandate.
OTTAWA, May 29,-The Naval
Bill, according to the present outlook, will not come hack to the
House of Commons.
The Ross amendment is not an
amendment by itself. It is an amendment to Senator Lougheed's motion
for a second reading of the bill. It
strikes out from the Lougheed motion all but the first word "That,"
and substitutes the words, "This
House ia not justified in giving its
assent to this bill until it is submitted to the judgment of the country." ���
The adoption of this amendment
means that the bill does not get its
second reading.     It is killed.
If it came to the House on lines
of the Ross motion the ultimate result would be the same, as no such
amendment could be accepted by the
government, and the bill would be
killed. The Ross amendment does
its work more quickly. The vote
may he taken by tonight, although
there are a number of speakers still
to be heard.
The debate on the motion for the
second reading of the Naval Bill and
Sir George Ross' amendment, calling
for the suspension of consideration
of the measure until the question has
been referred to the country, was
continued this afternoon and evening in the Upper House.
Senator Bostock (British Columbia), who seconded Sir George Ross'
amendment yesterday, said he hesitated to speak on a subject whieh
���had been so extensively dealt with by-
parliament and the press. However,
as an Englishman born in England,
living in Canada, where with his
capital he was doing what he could
to develop this part of the Empire,
while still contributing to the Income tax at home, he should express his view of the government's
Naval Aid Act.
He thought it could be shown that
instead of the Naval Service Act of
1910 heing a source of danger to
the relations of Canada and the
Mother Country, the bill now before parliament was far more likely to produce disturbing conditions,
which would seriously interfere with
the relations of Canada and Britain.
The Borden naval bill did not embody the principles of Mr. Borden's
amendment of 1910, when be proposed to place at the disposal of the
Admiralty enough money tobulld
two Dreadnoughts, The present
bill proposed to build three Dreadnoughts and give them to the Admiralty, subject to recall. If the
government really desired to make
an emergency grant it could have
saved time by providing in tbe estimates for the Dreadnoughts.
Mr. Bostock quoted "Truth" being against Canada contributing
ships, and the "Navy League Annual" that the British navy for some
years did not stand in need of ships
but men. Canada had made a bargain with Britain, Australia and New
Zealand for a national defence programme, whloh would Include the
Pacific. The Laurier naval act was
to make good this bargain. To repudiate the agreement would produce bad feeling in Australia.
Resentment against Canada was
now developing in Australia. The
Pacific Coast of Canada was especially interested in having the plan of
1910 for the protection of the Pacific, which proposed a British fleet
unit on the China station, a Canadian fleet unit and an Australian
fleet unit. Australia bad adhered
to the bargain, and her fleet unit was
now nearing completion.

sent to Ireland this week for exhibition at the Zoological gardens In
���"T~hnd heen said that men could
not be obtained for a Canadian navy.
That had not been the experience of
Australia, where enthusiasm for the
navy bad so developed that more
men had offered than rolild be trained and enlisting had to be discontinued.
Senator Pope said he would like
to know how the opposition could
take the position that the government had no mandate to bring down
this naval bill. It was one of the
Issues which had been discussed at
the last campaign.
Senator Bostock nnd Sir George
Ross had held that this hill was not
as good as the one which the late
government had put on the statute
books, but they had not justified that
statement with adequate reasons.
There was essenlnlly no difference in
Mr Borden's amendment of 1910 for
nn emergency gift of money to the
motherland nnd the present proposal
for an emergency gift of ships
Senator Pope read the bill he-
fore  the  House  which  he  snld  was
short, vet comprehensive, am- c0,ll(-
not he' objected to by anyone patriotically Interested In the welfare
of tho 'Empire The charge lhat
Canadians should man the ships, he
said, was nt present Impossible because it look many years to train
men for the purpose. The bill provided opportunity for Canadians to
enlist and train in thc British navy,
but he did not. think nny gentleman
opposite would take advantage of
the opportunity. The hill provided
that a statement, nf expenditure on
account of ship construction should
annually be laid before parliament
and this would provide opportunity
for parliament lo review and criticize the expenditure.
Premier Borden hnd stated that
the bill was a temporary m-easurp
nnd not the permanent, policy and It
wns unfair for anyone to do as Sir
George Ross hnd done���assume that
It was a permanent measure nnd
base an attack upon It on that account. Gentlemen opposite said
the people should be consulted he-
fore the act took effect. If tbe government, had to no to the people for
approval of a temporary men mi re.
the country would be agitated with
elections constantly.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier hfld not asked
the people to approve of his permanent naval policy.
Senator Pope declared that Can-
ndn would not. permit the irresponsible chamber of the Senate to nre-
vent the government carrying out its
pledges to the people.

Grocers of Lower  Mainland nnd Island Definitely Decide on the

On July 30 the grocers of the

coming to New Westminster to spend
it. This was definitely decided upon last Friday night at a meeting
in Vancouver between representatives ��f all the Retail Merchants'
Associations in this part of the province. Local committees were appointed to handle the affair in the
various towns concerned, while arrangements here will be made by a
committee of local dealers. It is
proposed to have the Island grocers
join with the mainland in celebration of this holiday, and the proposal has been received very favorably.
It is expected that several boat,
loads of excursionists and picnickers
from Victoria and Nanaimo will be

OTTAWA, May 26.���The policy of
the government in regard to shipbuilding was the subject of discussion on Friday in Committee of Supply. Tbe estimates for the Department of Marine and Fisheries were
being voted. The particular item
was $1,000,000 for government
steamers and Ice-breakers.
Hon. Rodolphe Lemieux raised the
question as to whether the government proposed to have its ships constructed in Canada hereafter. The
Minister of Marine and Fisheries, in
reply, stated that in the past Canadian shipyards had not been able to
deliver steamships, and that the

OTTAWA, May 27.���.lust before
6 o'clock in the House of Commons
last evening, Sir Wilfrid Laurier rose
���.o a question of privilege in regard
to an article which appeared in yesterday's Issue of the Montreal Gazette as a despatch from Ottawa.
The statement of which Sir Wilfrid complained was one to the effect
that he had delivered an ultimatum
to the Libera] Senators, declaring
that if they did not kill the government's Naval Bill he would resign
the leadership of the-Liberals.
"There is not a shadow of foundation for the statement, published
bv the Gazette," said Sir Wilfrid emphatically. "I do not know where
the gentleman who wrote it obtained his information, but I do know
that there is not a semblance of
truth in it."

Defeat iu Initial Clash���Final
Score H-.-t.
-    (SYom  The  British  Oo*i_mblan.)
Once more the famous world
champion Salmonbellies have demonstrated their prowess in tho
lacrosse world by defeating Van-
I couver last Saturday in one of the
cleanest and prettiest games which
has been played on the Queen's
Park oval for many moons, the final
score standing New Westminster 8,
Vancouver 3. Until the laet half
of the game New Westminster's
superiority was not so much in evidence, the heavy defence of the
Vancouver team holding down the
local home in great style.
By the Salmonbellies rush tactics, when the last half arrived, the
Green Shirts' defence began to
weaken and before long the score
board was busy recording New
Westminster goals. Vancouver's
home played with greater dash than
ls usual although their shooting was
as a rule very wild. Lalonde alone
of the Vancouver home was a dangerous man near the net while on
the New Westminster home every
man, within shooting distance of
Hess,   required  watching.
Bun Clarke, in the Salmonbellies
net, plavcd a whirlwind game, hiB
heady relieving being especially in
the limelight. Hess, In goal for
Vancouver, slopped well but lacked
when it came to getting the ball
away from his net. Both defences
worked together splendidly until the
last half when Con Jones' defenders became somewhat demoralized
by New Wesl minster's fast passing.
The homes also put up a fine exhibition although at times chances
were lost through poor pawing.
Judging from tbe .play exhibited laat
Saturday tbe lacrosse fans of the
coast will see some of the finest
games this year which have ever
been played on the coast. Both Vancouver and New Westminster seem
stronger this year and Vancouver's
defence is now only second to thei
The Game.
Although Vancouver secured the
face-off, made by President Kellington of the B. C. L. A., after Newsy
Lalonde hud missed a shot over the
goal, the ball travelled into Vancouver territory and 1 minute and
15 seconds after play had commenced, through some pretty combination work between Grumpy Spring,
Pat Feeney and W. Turnbull, the
latter netted the first goal of the
match. Again securing tho ball at
the face off, Vancouver rushed the
New Westminster goal, bent on retaliation, but it was not until over
nine minutes of play had passed in
which both teams were about even
that Newsy l��alonde on a pretty
Shot bulged the net behind Clarke.
During the remainder of this
Quarter both defences worked like
clockwork and neither home seemed
to be able to play effectively on account of the extremely close checking. New Westminster was very
dangerous around the goal mouth,
Len Turnbull and the Spring
brothers both giving Hess many hot
ones to stop. Although checking
was close no accidents occurred and
no penalties were handed out.
Second yuarte-.
With the score even, both teams
opened this quarter vigorously, Vancouver making tho first unsuccessful attempt to score. New Westminster followed with several shots
on Hess and some very pretty work
was displayed around the Vancouver
goal mouth. Taking a quick pass
from Feeney, G. Spring, after 4 minutes and 34 seconds play, broke the
one all tie by a fast shot.
More see-saw play followed this
tally, first one team and then the
other Hiking the aggressive. At no
time did the play lag, rather livening up as the game progressed.
About five minutes after the first
goal in this quarter, "Long Bill"
Turnbull netted another goal for the
Salmonbellies. Their home tried
again but lost the ball, and Winto-
raute, trying to revenge himself on
a cross check from Ion was sent
to tho fence for five minutes.This
was the first penalty of the game.
No one was hurt, Wintomute missing the mark.
With Wintemute decorating the
fence New Westminster slowed up
considerably and played safe on
every occasion. However being one
man short they were at a disadvantage, and Bonos Allen, who played a
fine game in the home field for
Vancouver, scored the final tally of
the quarter for Vancouver, Bones
Allen shortly after had hls wind
knocked out in a scrimmage.
Third Quarter,

fence for stiff checking. After
strenuous see-saw play for about
eight minutes L. Turnbull scored
the fourth goal for the Salmonbellies. Vancouver did its beat to retaliate but to no avail, Grumpy-
Spring getting another for New
Westminster about a minute later.
Both teams wore thou pressing hard
and it looked for a few moments as
though Vancouver would score. G.
Spring and L, Turnbull both shor.
some hot ones at Hess but he picked them out until six minutes _f
play had transpired when Grumpy
Spring managed to got the third
and last goal of the quarter.
Fourth Quarter.
About this time finding tho score
registering (i to 2 in favor of New
Westminster, many of the Vancouver
fans, making cars their excuse, left
the grounds, realizing that nothing
short of a miracle could win Vancouver the game.v Their "hunsh"
was right, for inside of three minutes Bill Turnbull passed the ball to
Wintemute and "Punk" scored.
About six minutes later with Vancouver working like Trojans, the
Salmonbellies scored the eighth and
last goal of the match. Grumpy doing the trick while left unchecked.
They were witnesses in a trial in which a broker, M. I. Stewart,
sued R. L. Henderson, an inventor, for half a million dollars commission for selling to Mackenzie and Mann certain processes for turning
iron into steel.    Price, $10,000,000. ���
Shortly after Adamson being left
uncovered, on a pass from Lalonde,
beat Clarke with a fast shot. For
the remainder of the game Vaneouver were on the aggressive all the
time, New Westminster finding the
game safe, satisfying Itself with
blocking Vancouver's many and varied attempts to score.
Throughout the game was very
salisfying to those present, the referees subdued every tendency to
undue roughness and the players
themselves showed little inclination
to roughness. Of course at this
early stage oX the season the teams
were not as speedy as they will be
later on but the play was fast
enough t.o arouse the interest of the
rail birds throughout.

Than In 1012.
(From the British Columbian.)
A report by Mr. J. G. Robson on
the lumber business, made to the
board of trade on Friday evening,
precipitated an interesting discussion of the financial stringency
whieh placed Mr. L. M. Richardson,
manager of the Royal Bank of Canada, under fire. Mr. Richardson occupied the chair, President J. A. Lee
being absent.
Mr. Robson's report was that the
lumber business showed an improvement this month over last. Importations from the United States
had fallen off 50 per cent, and all
that prevented a great revival of
trade was that the banks would not
advance the money needed for the
erection of buildings on the prairie.
Stocks were lighter by 30 per cent.,
but business was dead on the plains,
though satisfactory In Ontario and
This report brought Mr. Curtis to
his feet to ask why money should

Delegation From Development League   Will   Try   to   Interest
Provincial Government.
(From The British Columbian.)
Within about ten days a delegation of the Fraser Valley Development League will go to Victoria to
attempt to interest the government
in some scheme of aid to land clearing. The feature of the meeting was
the report of Councillor Lougheed,
of Maple Ridge, on this question, an
able document which put forward tho
original idea that, as the government
had aided the dyked lands with
money derived from the logging and
long taxation of the high lands, it
was only equitable as well as eminently desirable that the high lands
should receive assistance in their
peculiar needs.
An interesting feature of Councillor Loughejad's report was the statement that there was now less land
being cleared in the valley than 20
and 30 years ago. In this assertion,
he said, he was borne out by Premier
Sir Richard McBride, whose recollection agreed with his in the preserving the fact that a generation ago
there was the smoke of clearings going up all over the valley, where now
no fires were to be seen worth speaking of.
In the opinion of Mr, Lougheed,
the difference in this valley was partly accounted for by the fact that in
those days the settlers were chiefly
drawn from Ontario and other eastern provinces, where an apprenticeship had been served in the clearing
of land. Another feature of the situation was conceded to be the high
price of land in the valley, the added
cost of clearing making the development of wild land into farms almost,
if not quite, prohibitive.
Professor Hill-Tout was most emphatic on the combination of these
two reasons as causing the lack of
more rapid development in the valley. He stated that in his own district he had kept track of seven cases,
all of most desirable people who had
failed through no fault of their own.
They were hardworking, industrious
and intelligent, but ihey could last
only two years. The initial cost of
the land and the added cost of clearing had eaten up their capital and
forced them to sell for what they
could get or abandon their places and
go elsewhere.
It was shown that in some such
cases the disappointed settlers had
merely crossed the boundary line and
had succeeded there. Here the question of markets entered into consideration.
Mr. Lougheed's paper stated that
government assistance in clearing the
land was the only chance left for the
small man ln this valley, and the
meeting agreed with him. Mr. C. H.
Stuart Wade, who occupied the chair,
stated that he had a few years ago
made an examination of conditions
in the province and had recommended to the government the establishment of land clearing apparatus at
certain points, each in charge ot a
competent foreman, which at a
moderate fee would clear the land
far more cheaply for the small holder
than he could do It himself.
The point was made and emphasized that there was no use putting
the men on the land unless they could
be kept there. The problem was not
to put them on the land, they wero
coming fast enough, but they could
not be retained under the present
conditions. This situation must be
faced. Furthermore there was no
use blinking the fact that one dissatisfied settler could do more harm
than a hundred boosters could counteract.
Councillor Lougheed pointed out
that the project of assisted land clearing was not new. The government
had been hammered at for a year but
had so far done nothing. There
seemed to be some nervousness as
to establishing a precedent in assistance to farmers ln land clearing; a
sort of feeling that it was now up
to the low lands to assist the high

point, Mr. Richardson compared financial stringencies to breathing
spells. In these days the world moved and lived very fast. Business expanded too rapidly and a pause was
sometimes necessary and unavoidable. While, as a fact, the present
stringency was as bad us that of
1907, it was not noticed so much
and | its effects were less felt because in 1907 people actually hoarded their gold, while now it was in
circulation. Deposits are $14,000,-
000 less than in 1912, which, when
it is remembered that people are
coming into the country in large
numbers with a good deal of new
money, showed that the situation
was more serious than its apparent
effects would  indicate.
Dr. Holmes thought the general
habit of modern extravagance was
a cause. Mr. Richardson opined that
this, like the war, was not a cause
but was certainly an aggravation.
Mr. Robson could not see where
the money was. It must be somewhere. A sum of say $1000 existent it year ago must still be
existent. It was also brought out
that the money for the two hundred
million bushei crop grown in tho
prairies last year was still tied up.
Mr. Curtis thought that loo much
money was tied up in non-productive realty. Mr. Robson said that
the money was somewhere just the
same. It was not buried in tbe
ground.    Somebody must have it.
The  subject  then     dropped-
Councillor Lougheed Relieves Provincial Government May Help
Pay for Rood Purposes.
(From The British Columbian.)
Councillor Lougheed, of Maple
Ridge, sprung a new idea on the
meeting of the Fraser Valley Development League, on Friday afternoon, when he announced that he
had an opinion from Attorney-General Bowser to the effect that a good
case for the taxation of provincial
lands within municipal limits for
road-making purposes might be made
Councillor Lougheed pointed out
that in his municipality the value of
provincial crown lands was being
constantly increased by the opening
up of roads at the expense of the
municipality. All told, some 20,000
acres of government land had been
opened by municipal roads while in
Dewdney, which contained two million acres of land as compared witb
vne million for all the rest of the
valley municipalities put together,
the government lands had benefited
immensely by the roads built at the
expense of the municipality.
Councillor Lougheed also pointed
out that had the timber been left
on the lands the present day settler
would have been able to sell it and
secure funds for the improvement, of
his property. He had, however, only
the stumps, which were not marketable. Much of this timber had provided the provincial government with
revenue and not the Dominion government, and it was up to the provincial government to return for the
benefit of settlers on logged off lands
some of tbe benefit, already derived
from them in revenue and spent in
other ways in the province.
