I have ia wind, however, an al-
ternative  scheme   which I  think
would meet tbe case and which the
Council can at any time put into
effect,  as it is felly within their
powers under-the Muncipal Clause's
Act whk-b,  although it makes it
compulsory to divide a municipality
iota wards, does not specify any
particular number.   Therefore, the
Delta Ward By-taw oould be run-
ended so that instead of five wards
we could have two, which might be
! known as the oar* and, west wards.
Then -the C-soncTl has power, under

,$ir;rNowthat thfemuniciprtl elections are close at hand I would like
to draw the .attention ofthe ratepayers to some much needed legislation which, tb my mind, ought to
be brought prominently before the
public ere election day.
1. The-ward system should be
abolished as it is a thing of the
past in rural municipalities, and it
has been shown that those which
have adopted the general voting
system, are satisfied with its working as it is the means ot bringing
out the best class of councillors and
does away with the grafting so frequently seen under the ward sys-
teui.
2. I Would advocate the letting
of all municipal work by tender, in
sections; to the lowest tenderer, or
by auction to the lowest bidder,
thus doing away with all day work
except small repairs and emergency
work. It has been found lhat auctioneering of small jobs is the
simplest form of disposing of this
class of work.
3. It is absolutely necessary at
this time to take into consideration
the advisability of borrowing a suf-
bcient- sum of money for a, long
term of years 'o provide good roads
tor the increasing population,, which
means more subdividing of property, more produce raised and more
travel, and if judiciously expended
and the loan placed over a long
term of years there is no reasou
why the taxes should be any higii-
er, we would receive the benefit,
the land would increase in value,
and the better the road the larger
the load that could be hauled.
4. If the Municipal Act does not
give the municipality power to
place on the Assessment Roll an
assessment on dogs, such assessment to be made at the time of the
usual one in each year ior other
taxes, then application should be
made to the government to amend
the Act so as to give that power.
5. Councillors should be elected
opposed to cleaning out road ditches
for private drainage.

Cloverdale.
On Wednesday evening list, at
���Cloverdule, the local St. Andrew's
society gave a concert and dance
which, despite the bad weather and
terrible conditio:, of the roads, was
well attend id and proved an un-
. quatiiied success in every particular,
^noxcsptioually meritorious pro-
gtamle bad been prepared for the
occasion, performers coming all the
way from Blaine, Wash., Victoria,
Vancouver and New Westminster.
Dr. A, L. Kendall made a most
succfcsstul chairman and with Mrs.
Kendall mo.t courteously entertained both Col. Whyte, of the U. S.
Immigration service, and Arthur
Wheeler, special staff correspondent
of the Victoria Times.
The feature of the entertaiment
was undoubtedly the finished exhibition ef Scotch and Irish national
dances given by Messrs. Henderson
brothers, Adams and Matthews of
Vancouver and Westminster, urged
on by the stirring strains of the
pipes'by Piper MacRae, who, in
ftdditjon to his playing for the dancing, gave- two selections of the
Scottish melodies.
Col. Whyte's five minute address
pn "The Home and Haunts of
Robbie Bums" was much enjoyed
and proved very interesting, the
the Colonel having visited the
scenes so immortalized by the great
bard.
Messrs. Atchison, Wheeler, Sutherland, Col. Whyte and Rev.
Owen each contributed vocal solos
and were all well received. Miss
Bertha Boothroyd and Arthur
Wheeler acted as accompanists.
After   tlie   concert refreshments
Were served and dancing judulged
in by those wbo love to trip the
light fantastic, until about 4 *. m.,
thus endiqg what all who attended
declared was the very bast entertainment ever given at Cloverdale.
At the close of the concert part,
the chairman, Dr. Kendall, on behalf of the committee who bad the
arrangements in charge, thanked
those who had in any way contributed to the sSUsxeis of the affair
pod called far time cheer-; which
were heartily* gfivep^
All the visiting perforatsts were
entertained by the committee, who
keenly appreciate the kindly treatment l*eceiv��4 -&WM concerned.
At tbe congregational meeting
held hi St. Andrew's Presbyterian
Church, Thursday evening, the
financial statement was presented
wbich showed the liabilities as nil
and a small surplus ou hand for
running expenses.
The following address was presented to Rev. T. Oswald:
