NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, FRIDAY, Oct. 27,  1916.
Number 34
DOMINION   REPRESENTATION.
With a Dominion general election as "next" on the
programme���and the political weatherwise are "hazarding all kinds of guesses ranging from the coming winter to next fall���it is of interest to note that the new
House of Commons, to be elected whenever the Borden Government, or the "Minister of Elections," Bob
Rogers, shall decide to put its fate to the touch, "to
win or lose it all," will be somewhat differently constituted sectionally speaking, and doubtless politically,
to the present Parliament. The Dominion Redistribution Bill of 1914, which will then for the first time
come into effect, will give Western Canada, comprising
the four Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and British Columbia, a very considerably larger
representation in the House than formerly, while all
the Eastern Provinces except Quebec will have a
slightly reduced representation.
Quebec Province, with a fixed representation of 65,
as is known, is the basis for Federal representation
according to population. By that basis, the representation of the Dominion in the House of Commons as at
present constituted, 221 in all, is thus distributed:
Quebec, 65; Ontario, 86; Nova Scotia, 18; New Brunswick, 13; Prince Edward Island, 4; Manitoba, 10;
Saskatchewan, 10; Alberta, 7; British Columbia, 7;
Yukon Territory, 1. The population of Quebec Province having, in common with practically every other
Province in Canada, the West particularly, grown
considerably during the ten year census period ending
1911, the unit of representation for the Dominion was
raised, which accounts for the other Eastern Provinces
having a slightly reduced representation in the redistribution of 1914, while the large increase of population in the West entitled the Western Provinces, on the
game basis, to nearly double their former representation���56 as compared with 34���the total for the Dominion being 234, thus distributed: Quebec, 65; Ontario, 82; Nova Scotia, 16; New Brunswick, 11; Prince
Edward Island, 3; Manitoba, 15; Saskatchewan, 16;
Alberta, 12; British Columbia, 13; Yukon Territory, 1.
- In increasing British Columbia's representation
from seven to thirteen, the new measure of represen-
tion has completely changed the political map of the
Province, Federally speaking. In place of the sdven
electoral districts of Comox-Atlin, Kootenay, Nanaimo, New Westminster, Vancouver, Victoria, and Yale-
Cariboo, with one member each, we have: Comox-
Alberni, West Kootenay, East Kootenay, Nanaimo,
New Westminster City, Westminster District, Vancouver Centre, Burrard, Vancouver South, Skeena, Victoria City, Cariboo, and Yale���thirteen in all, witji pnp
member each.
The boundaries of these  districts  generally, in
terms of Provincial electoral districts, are as follows:
CgmpxrAlberni, comprising the Provincial  electoral
districts of Alberni (on the Island), Comox (Island-
Mainland), and the northernmost portion  of  Richmond electoral district;   West Kootenay, comprising
Nelson City, Ymir, Rossland City, Slocan, Kaslo, and
Revelstoke;   East Kootenay,  comprising Cranbrook,
Fernie and Columbia; Nanaimo, comprising Nanaimo
City, Cowichan, Esquimalt, Newcastle, Saanich,  and
The Islands district] Vancouver. Centre,  Ward 1  of
Vancpuver, with Stanley park, and \Vards 2, 3, and 4
of the city; Burrard. Wards 6, 6, J, and $ of Vancouver City and that portion of  Richmond immediately
north of Burrard Inlet, including North Vancouver;
Vancouver South, the municipalities of South Vancouver and Point Grey;  Skeena, the Provincial electoral
districts qf Skeena and Atlin!   Victoria City, the city
of Victoria! Cariboo, the Provincial electoral districts
of Cariboo, Lillooet, Kamloops, and Yale  (Including
Salmon Arm and excepting a southern portion of Yale
Provincial district included in Westminster District;
Yale, Okanagon district (excepting Salmon Arm) and
the Provincial districts of Similkameen.  Greenwood,
and Grank Forks. 	
The old Dominion Electoral District of Westminster, in which we are more immediately concerned,
has, as will have been observed, divided into two; with
a member each, thereby doubling thp representation
of the territory jnchided. in, the old district. New
Westminster City gives its name to erne of these districts, which includes, besides the Provincial electoral
district of Delta, all that portion of Richmond electoral district south of Burrard Inlet excepting the
municipalities of South Vancouver and Point Grey.
Westminster District, as the other Dominion riding is
called, comprises the Provincial electoral districts of
Dewdney and Chilliwack, together with the small
strip of Yale district above referred to.
With a Dominion election, as intimated, looming
upon the horizon���the regular term of Parliament has
been specially extended for one year, which expires on
October 7th next, beyond which it is hardly likely to
be again extended- while an election may be sprung
at any time in the interval, it is decidedly in order for
Liberals in the New Westminster City and Westminster District Dominion constituencies to cast about for
candidates and get them in the field, so as not to be
taken at a disadvantage.
PRACTICALLY ALL IN.
That may be said both of the soldiers' vote and
the Bowser Government, and the News-Advertiser
may now safely proceed to turn on that deferred valedictory over the tomb of Bowserism. which it forebore
to utter on the morning after September 14th, on account of a lingering hope that the soldiers' vote might
yet salvage the fatally wounded derelict. But, vain
hope ! The citizen soldiers of British Columbia, though
put at a considerable disadvantage, in the matter especially of obtaining well balanced and up to date information bearing on the election, have seen their
duty practically in very much the same light as did
their civilian brethren and have confirmed the action
of those who voted at home by assisting to consign to
political oblivion a Government that had somehow
managed to outlive that merited doom several years
too long for the good of the country. With the soldiers' vote in Canada all counted, as noted last week,
and the returns, at this writing, from the count in the
Old Country practically all in, it is seen that the net
result of the soldiers' vote has been to confirm one
doubtful seat, that of Fort George, to the Conservatives by a majority of nine, which was all Hon. W. R.
Ross could get over Mclnnes, and to turn a Liberal
majority of 6 in Delta into a Conservative majority of
58 for MacKenzie. When the full returns are in from
London, it may be found that Premier Bowser is elected over Mr. Donnelly, Liberal, in Vancouver. That
would give the Bowser Opposition a total of nine in a
House of forty-seven. The Bowser Government is
certainly "all in."
HERE AND THERE.
Plans are being worked out by the Great Northern
Railway Company, says a late St. Paul despatch, for
the electrification of more than 300 miles of the main
line of the G. N. R. between Spokane and Seattle, and
other mountain divisions in the west. As tentatively
outlined, the project is described as one of the biggest
of its kind ever undertaken. Through a subsidiary
company the Great Northern controls water rights on
the Chelan River in Washington, and the plan, it is
said, includes the raising of the level of Lake Chelan,
and the establishing of the main power plant in the
vicinity.   ��� ���
Though New York is the present financial centre
of the world, there is not a question, thinks Mr. Harold Beauchamp, president of the Bank of New Zealand,
in an interview at Vancouver, the other day, that, after the war, London will recapture that position, despite the fact that the Americans will make every
effort to retain what they have won due to war exigencies. Mr. Beauchamp, who has just returned from
a lengthy tour embracing the principal financial centres
in the United States and Canada, finds his views as
expressed above are confirmed by those of the men
whose fingers are on the pulse of the financial world.
FINANCING THE WAR.
Mr. Reginald McKenna, Chancellor of the Exchequer in the Asquith Government, replying in the
House of Commons, last week, to criticisms of the
high rate of interest payable on the new . treasury
bonds, and the objections raised that this would lead
to their being largely held abroad, said: "That is the
very thing we desire. It must be remembered that
we have to pay a very considerable amount, day by
in the United States. At present we have to find
��7,000,000 a day for every working day. That means
a prodigious amount to find every six days."
The Chancellor prefaced his statement regarding
the large amounts being spent in America by a defence of his action in paying a high rate of interest
upon treasury bonds: "It is not possible," he said,
"to apply pre-war standards and to say that five per
cent, is enough or that we could get it more cheaply.
Very likely it could be done if we only wanted a little
or 0V0P the equivalent of the greatest sum ever raised
before the war, It should be remembered, however,
we have to raise a maximum sum about once a month
and it is only possible to find out by the daily examination of the results of borrowings and payments
whether we are successful in meeting our obligations.
In order to meet all expenses and to keep our undertakings with the Allies, I have to make sure of getting*
money."
Continuing, Mr. Mo^ePRa proceeded to explain
that, unless Great Brjtam was able to raise the money
in tfye United States, she would have to go short of
supplies from there which were absolutely essential to
the Allies- Defending the six per cent, bond issue, he
mentioned the fact that, within a fortnight, these
treasury bonds had been sold to the extent of ��36.000,-
000. He added that the present moment of constriction for money was unfavorable to the issue of long-
term loans, though the Government intended to resort
to such a loan when the treasury considered it advisable, and the Government would not shrink from fulfilment of its promise in regard to the conversion of previous loans.
The Chancellor declared he did not doubt the ability of the Empire to bear the strain of the war. Its
expenditure was not diminishing, he stated, there
being an advance under the two heads of munitions
and advances to Great Britain's Allies, but in both of
these directions he was confident the country would
not grudge the needful supplies,
In connection with these explanations of the Chancellor of tho Exchequer in regard to Great Britain's
successful grappling with the stupendous task of
financing this indesoribable war, the following extract
from the great speech delivered by Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
week hefore last, at London, Ont., as opposed to the
grafting of a sort of Sam Hughes-German militarism
upon the Empire, after the war, is peculiarly apt and
appropriate:   "Does anyone suppose that, if Britain
had adopted the German system, and had taken every
generation year after year as they came  of  military
age and removed these young men   from  the farm,
from the shop, from the professions, placed them  in
camps and barracks, and taxed the rest of the nation
to keep them under the charge of the drill sergeant,
non-producing���does anyone believe that Britain would
have been able to stand the strain of  spending $25,-
000,000 every day to finance not only her own  part,
but Russia, Italy, Canada,  Australia, and New Zealand, and that on a gold basis, out of her  own  resources?   The answer by contrast is that Germany today has been obliged to have recourse to a paper currency, which is every day depreciating."
The best way to help Mr. Brewster in his work of
reorganizing the financial and industrial affairs of
British Columbia, is to help elect a Government in
power at Ottawa which will be in sympathy with Mr.
Brewster's aims, was the argument put forward in an
address at a Liberal Association meeting in Vancouver, last week, by Mr. J. S. Cowper, one of the Liberal members-elect for the Terminal City. As the Province has been put in a horrible hole by the weird
railway guarantee performances of the "late" Government, and will require sympathetic co-orporation from
Ottawa in order to get out without being swamped,
there is sound common sense in Mr. Cowper's Suggestion.
Canada's new Governor-General, the Duke of Devonshire, who with the Duchess and family have probably arrived at the capital, has made a good beginning for an essentially democratic country. Through
the Colonial Office, before he left England, he caused
it to be conveyed to Ottawa that he desires to be addressed in Canada, officially and socially presumably,
as "His Excellency," waiving the ducal title of "His
Grace." Apart from the Duke of Connaught, who, of
course, had a royal title that took precedence, the
Duke of Devonshire is the only duke who has been
Governor-General of Canada. His expressed desire to
waive his hereditary rank in Canada and be addressed
simply as "His Excellency," which belongs to the office of Governor-General, and which all his predecessors but the Duke of Connaught assumed, is a mark of
good taste and tact which augurs well for his incumbency at Rideau Hall.
The birds of the air have been challenged, and in
some respects beaten to a frazzle, in their own domain
by the startling development of the last few years���
the bird-man. Duck shooting from a hydro-aeroplane
is the latest in the sporting line, these swift waterfowl being actually overtaken and shot on the wing by
means of the swifter air-and-water bird of man'sdevice.
That monarch of the air, the eagle, has, in recorded
instances, come out second best, when, in a fit of professional jealously, he has questioned the right of the
daring aviator to invade his empyrean realm. When
it comes to "looping the loop," flying upside down,
the combination of man and flying machine has the
feathered flier "backed off the map," to use an expressive vulgarism, as was well illustrated in a funny
cartoon, the other day in which a damaged denizen of
the air explained his casualties as due to an ambitious
effort to emulate the flying-man's stunts.
Who will be the leader of the Conservative oarty
in British Columbia? This question is almost as important as, Who will be the Ministers of Premier'
Brewster's cabinet? It is improbable that any of the
Conservative members-elect will ever be able to lead
the party to victory. A more capable man will be
needed to accomplish this task. In looking over the
field, there appears to be but two men in the party
in the Province of commanding personality. Hon.
Martin Burrill has many friends in the Province, and
Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, although he threw in his
lot with the Liberals in the late election, still claims to
be a Conservative. Either of these men might gain a
Conservative victory in the course of a couple of decades.���Grand Forks Sun. Rather cold comfort the
Sun holds out to the best of the Conservative stalwarts
���a possible Conservative victory in the course of
twenty years! Even Mr. Bowser himself, who will in
all probability be in the Legislature, and who will naturally assume the Conservative leadership, could not
do much worse. Page 2

SUPPRESSING THE TRUTH.
Conservative papers of a ccrta;n stripe, east and
west, have been featuring for the past week one-sided
versions of the recent incident at Ottawa of Sir Wilfrid Laurier declining the invitation of Si' Robert
Borden to co-operata in the formation of a National
Service parliamentary committee (at the suggestion
of the National Service Commission) to issue an
appeal in connection with recruiting, and to name five
Liberal members of Parliament to act on sueh a committee with seven Conservative members of Parliament. The fact of Sir Wilfrid Laurier declining is
baldly paraded in these Conservative papers, together
with insinuation and comment impugning the loyalty
and patriotism of the Liberal leader, while the illuminating reasons which he gave for his action-
reasons which not only justify him, but impeach the
Government of partisan manipulation in even the
vital matter of recruiting���are carefully suppressed
or obscured.
In declining to accede to the Prime Minister's request, Sir Wilfrid Laurier reviewed the history of the
creation, by Order-in-Council of the Dominion Government, early this year, of the National Service
Commission, and of the exact powers and duties
assigned to it. In pursuance of this inquiry, he found
that "it is obvious that, under the above instructions,
the duty of the directors ofi'National Service is to find
out the number of men who can be removed,from the
various industries (agricultural, manufacturing, mining, lumbering, fishing, and others) which are carried
out in any locality within each district," and to provide that no person be allowed to enlist (quoting from
the instructions) "whose services would be of more
value to the state in the employment in which he is
now engaged." "In that view," said Sir Wilfrid
Laurier in his reply, "that this was the first work to
be done, I would have deemed it my duty to communicate at once with Sir Thomas Tait (Director-General
of the National Service Commission) and dis'cuss with
him this aspect of the subject in connection with the
resolution of the Directors of National Service for a
parliamentary committee." Sir Wilfrid Laurier continued and concluded his letter of declination to Sir
Robert Borden as follows;
"Unfortunately, Sir Thomas Tait has resigned from
the position of Director-General of National Service,
and his resignation, and especially the reasons for his
resignation, put a new complexion upon your proposal,
"Sir Thomas Tait resigned, not only on account of
what occurred in the case of Mr. G. M. Murray, who
had been offered the position of secretary of National
Service, but chiefly, as I understand it, on account of
that 'incident as indicative of what may be anticipated
in connection with the future organization and work
of National Service.'
"I feel that, under the circumstances, in acceding
to your suggestion, any assistance to the cause, which
I have endeavored to serve from the first day of the
war, would not be unhampered, and consequently as
effective as if I continue to serve it according to my
own way, as heretofore."
Some linking up of Sir Robert Borden's invitation, and Sir Wilfrid Laurier's declination of same,
with the antecedent and related facts is obviously
called for. Sir Thomas Tait, who was put at the head
of the National Service Commision, on its formation,
by Sir Robert Borden, it might be premised, has a
record for eminent public service as an organizer and
administrator of marked executive ability, chiefly in
the railway sphere, both in Canada and Australia, and
was knighted in 1911 in recognition of these services.
He is a man above and beyond party distinctions and
discriminations, and a most fitting head for a great
non-partisan, patriotic service body, which the National
Service Commission was supposed to be. When he
accepted the position of Director-General, and set
about organizing and mapping out the work of the
Commission, Sir Thomas Tait evidently never dreamed
that the slimy hand of patronage and machine politics
was going to be impudently gnd profanely thrust into
the high and patriotic work in Canada, for the nation
and the Empire, that he had been deputed to direct.
But he reckoned without his Bob Rogers and his Sam
Hughes, "Masters of the Administration," and who
could no more keep unholy hands of political partisanship off anything than they could stop breathing.
It came about in this way, to make a long story
short: The Government objected to Mr. G. M. Murray, secretary of the Manut'acUuers' Association, who
had been chosen for his special fitness by Sir Thomas
Tait as secretary of the National Service Commision,
Sir Thomas Tait, perceiving that National Service was
to be bound hand and foot and slimed by politics,
did the only thing a man of his character and standing could do���resigned at once, in the following terms,
to the Prime Minister, from whom he had received
his appointment: "In view of what has occurred in
the case of Mr. G. M. Murray, who had been offered
the position of secretary of National Service, and of
that incident as indicative of what may be anticipated
in connection with the fnture organization and work
of National Service, I feel compelled, after serious
consideration,  to relinquish the position of Director-

General of National Service, and I, "therefore, do now
resign from that position."
The resignation of Sir Thomas Tait was promptly
accepted, and Mr. R. B. Bennett, Conservative M. P,
for Calgary, and party politician, of course, was appointed in his stead. Is it any wonder that Sir Wil*
frid Laurier felt that he "would not be unhampered,"
and it might be added untainted, in such association,
and that he could do freer and more effective patriotic
work in his own way?

was not up to the average, on account
of the weather and supplies coming in a
little late; but there was a fine lot of
meats, when they did arrive, at last
week's prices, and poultry was in the
usual large supply, with a full demand
and rising prices, hens holding at 15c to
20c and springs ranging from 18c to 22c,
according to quality. Eggs also aero-
planed, reaching the high season's mark
of 65c retail and 55c to 60c retail. Butter was going strong at as high as 45c
retail aud a notch lower wholesale. Our
old friend Murphy, knick-named "The
Spud," took a little flier on his own account and recorded $18 to $20 per ton.
Apples, pears, plums, etc., stuck to their
hangars, at last week's prices���65c to $1
per box, 75c to $1 per box, and 40p to
50c per crate, respectively.

Water Bate Causes Discussion-Mayor Beports re Co-operative Marketing
and Storage Scheme.
At the regular  meeting  of   the   City
Council, Monday evening last, the Mayor and full Council, with  the  exception
of Aid. Goulet,  absent on  his holidays,
were present.
The usual grist of communications aud
reports were received and dealt with, including an unusually lengthy report
from Committee of the Whole, dealing
with a variety of matters, whicli was
adopted in its entirety with the exception of the first clause, dealing with u
previous request from the Canada Western Lumber Co., Ud., Fraser Mills, for
a reduced water rate. This clause,
which recommended granting the request on certain conditions, was laid over,
pending a clearer understanding in writing as to the use of the Steamer Senator
Jensen as a fire-boat on the city water
front in the evenf of a fire at any time���
whether such offered use would be free
of charge if availed of.
A matter of unusual interest and importance, productive of considerable discussion and eventual favorable action,
was the Mayor's verbal report on a proposed co-operative marketing and cold
and cool storage scheme, utilizing the
city's projected marketing and storage
facilities and contemplating the esfcib,
lishment in connection therewith of a
central collecting and distributing depot
here for all sorts of agricultural and horticultural produce of the District and
Province. The Mayor gave uome par.
ticulars in this connection of the recent
tour, covering a number of the District
municipalities, made by himself, in association with Mr. J. R. Grant, who was
taking a foremost part in the project,
Mr. David Whiteside, member-elect for
the citv, and Reeve Sullivan, of Surrey,
The Mayor was authorized, on motion,
to take any further steps, il) the way of
convening a joint city and district meeting at an early date, etc., to advance
this desirable project.
Communications.
The following communications were
received, and disposed of in order as
read:
From the Dominion Shingle and Cedar
Co., Ltd., asking permission to leave
their office building, which was on runners, temporarily on street. Permission
granted, with stipulation for nominal
rental.
From F. H. Cunningham, asking permission to place ornamental trees on the
inside boulevard opposite his property
on Fifth street. Permission granted,
under supervision of the Parks Committee.
From the secretary of the Woman's
Auxiliary of the Royal Columbian Hospital, saying it was decided not to hold
a tag day on Nov. 10th, as intended, on
account of probable unfavorable weather
at that time, but to postpone same to the
spring.    Received and filed.
From the City Clerk of Port Coquitlam, stating that the by-pass for lire
water service had not been used and
asking that it be closed, and that the account of this city for $320 arrearages
for this'service against Port Coquitlam
municipality be remitted. Received and,
on motion of Aid. Dodd, chairman of
Water Committee, request granted.
From the Canada Western Lumber
Co., Ltd., re reduced rate for water supply asked for, and tendering use of str.
Senator Jensen, in this connection, as
fire boat. Received and laid on table,
to be dealt with later in meeting.
From the Attorney-General of B. C,
in reference to certain fines paid into
Provincial Gaol, this city, retained by
tbe Government, and claimed by the
city. Received and Attorney-General to
be asked to forward report referred to,
not received, and request to be reiterated
lo have fines claimed remitted to city.
From the Western Canada Power Co.,
Ltd., re Vancouver-Prince Rupert Meat
Co. lighting contract, asking extension

conditions as the City Solicitor may advise.
From James Cunningham, asking that
something be done to protect his property from wanton damage on Hallowe'en.
Received and referred to Police Committee to act.
From J. S. Wilson, Steveston, offering
to assist in grading a portion of Wood
St., Lulu Island, and asking the city to
put on a man to assist with the work.
Referred to Board of Works to act.
From the Building Inspector, with application from Ira Reid for permission
to make alterations in his store on Columbia St., with favorable recommendation by Building Inspector. Received
and recommendation adopted.
From the City Engineer, reporting re
clearing of land round Coquitlam Lake,
that he had spent two days following
the shore line in both gasoline and row
boat, and would estimate, from his observations, that there was between 60
and 70 acres of uncleared land visible
round the lake. As to uncleared! land
submerged, that would be difficult to determine unless the lake were .lowered to
its original level. The total distance
round the shores of the lake and island
was.about 21.3 miles, of which 9.5 miles
remained to be cleared. The acreage
given by Mr. Stronach, Dominion Government engineer, and mentioned in
Mr. Challies' recent letter, viz., 146
acres uncleared, the City Engineer
thought could be relied upon. The
nearest uncleared land to the intake was
about one and three-quarters of a mile
therefrom and aggregating about 34
acres in area, near Silver Creek. Received and adopted.

not been used from a certain date apd
that all water used at fires had been

5. That the ��jty Engineer be instructed to report upon the application of Nels

interfering with electric light wires, and
to meet owners of trees on private prop?
erty as to removal of overhanging

Aid. Dodd was opposed to granting
such striking reductions to manufacturing concerns, as recommended in clause
1 of the report. It would be observed
from Ihe communication of the Canada
Western Lumber Co. that the city was
not assured of the use of the Senator
Jensen for fire protection purposes, free
of charge. He would move, as an
amendment to the motion to adopt the
report of the Committee of the Whole,
that clause 1 be laid over.
Aid. Bryson seconded the amendment.
His principal reason was financial, that
the city could not afford to reduce rates,
at this time of the year especially, when
estimates had been prepared on certain
expected revenues. If they were going
to reduce rates, they should be reduced
all round, and not only to manufacturing concerns.
After some further discussion, in
which the Mayor and Aid. Eastman,
Johnston, Jardine, and McAdam took
part, the amendment was carried ou a
show of hands, Aid. Eastman and McAdam voting nay, and the remainder of
the report was adopted.
Unfinished and New Business.
The Fire Prevention By-law came up
for second reading, and was again laid
over.
Aid. Dodd moved, seconded by Aid.
Eastman, that, as Port Coquitlam municipality had not used the fire service bypass put in water main by this city,
since 1913, account for arrears against
Port Coquitlam be remitted and by-pass
be closed.    Carried.
Mayor Gray, for the information of
the Council, stated that the city had received the sum of $61,975.31 on account
of action by the city against the C.N R.
Co. for arrears of taxes due, being
amount oi judgment without costs, conditional on city giving undertaking to
refund same with interest, in event of
final decision going against the city.
On motion of Aid. Eastman and Johnston, Mayor was authorized to have the
necessary undertaking drawn up and
signed.
Oo-Onerative Produce Marketing.
Mayor Gray, under the head of "New
Besiness," gave a verbal report of the
steps that had- been taken toward the
promotion of a co-operative produce collecting and distributing depot, with cold
and cool storage facilities, in connection
with the public market in this citv. In
association with Mr. J. R. Grant, who
was taking a leading part in promoting the idea, he (the Mayor),
Mr. David Whiteside, member-elect
for the city, and Reeve Sullivan,
of .Surrey, had recently visited a
number of the District Councils iu the
interests of   the   scheme,   to   ascertain
be constituted of five members from the city
and one each from the District municipalities taking part, and paying a fee for
each municipality participating of say
$500, the funds to be used toward the
collection, storage, and distrioution of
produce at and from a central .storage
depot to be established in connection
with the proposed, new market in this
city. The scheme was yet only in the
preliminary and tentative stage, but the
whole thing would be outlined at a meeting which it was proposed to arrange for
here within two weeks probably. The
