ARRANGING FOR
CHAUTAUQUA WEEK
Local Committee in Charge is
Busy Getting Ready for Big
Crowds During the Festival
b  a
us
In keeping with the progress that has
been in evidence in Langley Prairie of
late,. another evidence of this is the
action taken by its leading citizens in
securing the Chatauqua people to make
this town one of their show places.
The dates fixed on for here is May 23
to 28 inclusive, and there is no doubt
it will be the means of drawing large
crowds from the entire valley, who will
thus avail themselves of the oppor
tunity to enjoy a week of clean, healthy
entertainment of a highly educational
nature, put on by artists in their various lines.
The local committee in charge of the
arrangenemts is composed of Messrs.
J. H. Bailey (president), Dr. J. F.
Woods, N. K. Terpstra, J. M. Shales,
R. McLeod. P. Y. Porter, Chas. Gal-
braith, Jos. Donnelly, Z. Michaiid, C.
Logan, D. J. Enright, H. J. deCanon-
ville, A. C. McNab, A. C. DesBrisay,
. F. H. Turner, N. C. Abercrombie. They
met on Monday evening and from the
enthusiasm shown no stone is being
. left unturned to launch a campaign
that will get the people out. Tickets
are selling rapidly and there is keen
rivsdry between the committee to see
4'who can dispose of the largest number.
Be sure your ticket is stamped Langley
Prairie.
Agnes C. Lout.
One of the main attractions at the
Chatauqua will be the lectures of Agnes
C. Laut, well known as the author of
"Canadian Commonwealth" and "Canada at the Cross Roads."
Pitt Parker, the crayon wizard, is a
whole show in himself, and one young
admirer of Mr. Parker fittingly describes his feelings on seeing this great
cartoonist:
"You make me laff I newer rored
so hard in my life as as I did at yore
picture of the fellow' hunting the skunk
that he thot was a rabit. Those jokes
was so funny they tickled every body
2 deth and pa laffed so hard he swal-
lered his gum he says you. was the
best traction . of the entire Shtagua
corase cause you you muster had monkey glands put in lately 2 put snap in
yer funny bone an' loosen up yer„dia-
fragham but pa was just joking Ma
liked yore show fine and she cried a
little at yore pome "We'll Understand."
Once I laffed right out loud and pa
says 'shet up/ but he giv me a nickkel
when we got home bcaus I drew sum
picturs like yours,I am  goin' 2
grate cartunist lik you sumday.
"If  y'ou  ever come  back. here
fellers what is imitatin you wil pay
fer the biggest feed youve had since
the high cost of ivin' has made eatin'
one of our pathetick amusements."
Lovers of good music are promised
a rare treat, as the Chautauqua family
carry some high class musicians, their
symphony being especially excellent,
playing the wonderful Tschaikowsky
numbers and an especial sketch containing part, of the "Godmark Rustic
Wedding." You will have an opportunity to hear the ballet music from
Faust and other operatic selections
from such old masters as Gounod,
Goldmark, Schumann, Schubert
Tschaikowsky and Dvorak, throughout
the programme is woven some of Mr.
Lieurance's wonderful Indian songs
effectively arranged for the sumphony
Among them might be mentioned
"By the Waters of Minnetonka."
See the Sentinel next week for the
full programme, commencing Monday,
May 23rd
Committees Report Progress.
Another well attended meeting was
held at the Langley Prairie Hotel on
Friday night when the various committees reported satisfactory progress all
along the line. It was decided to hold
the Chautauqua carnival on Mr, J. Logan's property on the Yhle road, just
west of the B. C. E. R. tracks. Here
the big tent will be pitched and the refreshment boots erected, the concessions
for which will be given to strictly local
people.
Committees will be appointed in the
various centres throughout the municipality and in Surrey to dispose of
tickets and arrange for transportation
The publicity committee are offering
cash prizeB aggregating (15 to be divided between the senior and junior
school children for the best assay on
"The Benefits Derived from Chautauqua." To compete you mest be the
possessor of an admission ticket and
confine yourself to not more than 250
works. The prize winning assay will be
published in The Sentinel.
It was decided to issue a Langley
Prairie souvenir for the occasion, containing a coudensed history of the town
with appropriate illustrations. It will
also contain the week's Chautauqua
and will be distributed free.
Clean Up Campaign.
And the committee decided to stage
a "clean up" week in the town, starting
Monday, May 16, and everyone is asked
to lend a hand in putting their premises
in spick and span shape. It helps to
leave a favorable impression in the
minds of visitors. So clean up's the
word.
The committees will meet again tonight, when a representative of the
Women's Institute will be present,
New Auctioneering Firm.
Messrs. Harris & Bennett, is the
name of a new firm that has been established to carry on an auctioneering
business in the valley, with headquarters at Grain Growers building at

$500 Granted Towards Exhibit at
New Westminster.
At the Longley Municipal Council
meeting on Saturday- last a vote of
$500 was made in favor of the Agricultural Society to assist them in preparing and staging a district exhibit at
the Provincial Exhibition at New
Westminster. A delegation from the
Agricultural Society were present to
press their case for financial assistance,
and they were ably assisted by Messrs
Dr. J. G MacKay, Ed. Goulet, Tom
Trapp and Manager E. D. MacKenzie,
of the provincial fair management.
The great advantages of Langley
from such an exhibit was ably dealt
with, and it is now up to the people
of Langley to see to it that a prize-
winning collection of products .is gathered together, regaining ' for this district the high distinction of being the
banner municipality agriculturally in
British- Columbia ~
Permission to hold a tag day on
Thursday, May 12th, in aid of the
Royal Columbia Hospital, New Westminster, was granted the Fort Langley
Women's  Auxiliary.
The sum of (150 granted in aid of the
memorial services held on Sunday, 24th
inst, was ordered to be paid.
For the sum of $190, a contract to
grade 900 feet of the Coghland Road,
was awarded to Eckert and Ross.
Coun. Taylor related some humorous
situations arising from the working of
the recently passed pound by-law,
which by the way, is not being any
too well observed.
Fire permits will be issued in accordance with arrangements with the fitt
ranger.
A letter from the Minister of Public
Works relating to the proposed classification of the Yale road, left some
doubt in the minds of the Reeve and
Council. The Reeve stated that he
had understood from the Government
and the local member, Mr. Paterson,
that the Yale road was to be solely
maintained by the Government, and
he personally had impressed this view
upon the powers that be at Victoria.
The Councilors took the view that it
shoud be in the same cass as the Pacific Highway. The communication was
finally laid on the table, pending an
interview with Mr. Paterson, which
will be had as soon as possible.
For its share of the expenses of the
Union of B. C.'s parliamentary agent
in opposing the increase in telephone
rates at Ottawa hearing of the commission, a sum of $25 was voted.
Coun. Goldsmith was authorized to

for road connection with his property
near the Coghlan road. -

That the Oriental question, particularly reltaing to Chinese, has assumed
alarming proportions in and around
here, was made evident at a meeting
on Monday night Strong protests was
voiced by several speakers against the
evils of Chinese settlement here and
elsewhere, and the attention of the
various Governments will be drawn to
the sistuation, with a view to putting
a stop to it as soon as possible.
Various complaints have been made
by ladies .travelling on the B. C. E. R.
to and from New Westminster, especially on Saturday eveningh, against the
jostlings of these ill-mannered gentry
in getting on and off the cars, and on
being forced to stand while they make
themselves comfortable in the seats.
They are getting control of land alongside the white settlers and by their
mode of living and actions making life
unbearable in many instances. Some
drastic action is necessary to put a
stop to it. Facts concerning this menace in Surrey are being gathered by
Mr. N. F. Kendall, of the Board of
Trade, and Mr. F. J. Kellaway, secretary of the United Farmers' and Potato ' Growers' Associations, and will be
presented to the forthcoming Imperial
Conference in London, England.
When the School Board met on Saturday night they were faced with a
large deputation of ratepayers praying
that the vexed question of ample
school accommodation be again taken
up with the Council, with a view to
obtaining the necessary money to remedy the matter. Mr. Hugh, who headed the delegation, said the question
had been discussed with the Minister
of Education, and a ruling had been
given that an amended by-law could
be submitted to the people, upon petition, and he forthwith presented same.
The trustees finally decided to ask the
Council to submit another by-law to
raise $27,000, with the change that the
High School be built at Cloverdale,
instead of at Surrey Centre.
To overcome the crowding at the
Strawberry Hill school, the Delta
school trustees will be asked to take
care of the overflow.
When the local police force get their
new uniforms they will be more readily
recognized.
For selling liquor H Siedleman was
last week fined $300. Also Sit Lung,
proprietor of an opium joint at McLennan, was forced to part with a
much coveted 200 bucks.
The Gun Club are preparing for
their big shoot on May 24th, when
outside clubs are coming to try their
skill with the local sharpshotters. Arrangements are in the capable hands of
Messrs. W. Hassard, Joe Boothroyd,
and N. F Kendall.
To stimulate interest in the inter-
school competitions at the annual Surrey Exhibition, Coun. Joe Brown has
offered the handsome sum of $50 towards a cup and prizes
Arrangements for the unveiling ceremony to be held here on Sunday', May
22nd, are going on apace, and a large
turnout is anticipated by soldiers and
civilians. The granite slab will be laid
by Messrs. Patterson, Chandler and
Stevens, of Vancouver, who will inscribe thereon the* names of Surrey's
honored dead. The height of the monument will be 9 feet, when all is completed, and on top of it will be mounted
the German gun captured by the 47th
Battalion on October 27, 1918. The
47th Battalion is. sacred to New Westminster, but it is also very closely associated with the Fraser Valley in general
TYNEHEAD.
The board of managers of the Tyne-
head Presbyterian Church will hold a
conecert and supper in the Public Hall,
Tynehead, May 10th The musical programme will be in charge of the Owen
orchestra from Cloverdale. Mr. Allyn
Atchison has a lengthy grogramme. A
hearty invitation is extended to all to
be present.

The Church of the Nazarine, was organized and dedicated, out of debt, at
Cloverdale, on Sunday, May 10, when
when the Rev. Mr. Hunt, of Seattle,
officiated. The church starts with a
charter membership of twenty-four and
they have called the Rev. J. W. Wright
as their first pastor. A thank offering
of $175 was taken up and handed to the
Revs. Wright and Kennedy, who have
been carrying on revival meetings here
under the auspices of the Nazarine
Church.
UNVEILING CEREMONY
ON SUNDAY, MAY 22
Preparations for the unveiling
ceremony in connection with the
district memorial to those who gave
their lives in the war, is going on
apace, and a large turnout from all
over the district is expected on the

Since the closing of the road running
through the Timms Market Gardens
by the new manager, settlers have been
obliged to go to Hunter station to get to
Laiigley Prairie. Those using the road
in the past were so negligent in replacing the bars that cattle came in and did
hundreds of dollars worth of damage to
ibe crops and by breaking glass. A
movement is on foot to continue the
road running parallel to the railway
traek through the grounds of E. J.
Timms and thus save the long detour.

derence of advertisements over
news matter. We had arranged
for special machine-set reading
matter, but at the eleventh hour,
without any warning, word comes
that the printers' strike in Vancouver prevented our arrangements
being carried out. We are going
to instal a machine of our own, and
you can help by your subscriptions.
Our feelings at having to make
this apology are not fit for publication.

IN
THE FEUD
A Typical Mix
Drama of the
Great Outdoors
"THE FEUD" is your big chance to
see the screen's superplay. Tom Mix
seen at his best. It is a big beautiful production, elaborately staged. Its appeal is
universal. It will appeal to all ages, from
those who can recall the days pictured on
the screen down to kiddies to whom it
will be better than any book of adventure.
Out of the welter of fate sprang the purest
of love. The son of the feud faced awful
odds, death and disgrace for the daughter
of the enemy.

parcels containing intoxicating liquors
handed in at any post office by the
said commission may be accepted for
transmission to any place within the
said province, with the proviso that a
parcel of liquor so posted cannot be
redirected to any place outside the
province. Parcels are required to conform to the parcel post regulations as

And the truth is not in him.

The absolute cleanliness of Eden-washed clothes and

Eden washing through its exclusive feature—the sediment zone.
As dirt is washed out of the clothes it settles to the

The Valley Sentinel from now on will be issued
on Tuesday, instead of Saturday, as heretofore, and
we hope: thereby to give a better news service.
We wish to take this opportunity of thanking
the business men who have so liberally given of their
advertising patronage, thereby aiding in making' it
possible to publish a paper in this district, and when
present plans materialize, The Sentinel will be considerably enlarged and improved.
We also wish to dispel any illusion regarding
the suggested discontinuance of this paper at an early
date. The management are more than satisfied with
the outlcok and the public can rest assured of our
continuance in business. There is a field for The
Sentinel in this district and and we are in it to stay.
Starting, of course, without a subscription list,
we have been sending free copies out for some weeks
now, and we would ask those who have been receiving it (providing our efforts to establish a newspaper
in your midst are appreciated) to show such approval
by becoming regular subscribers.
The price is $1.50 per year, or $1.00 to Dec. 31,
1621. In case you want The Sentinel, and don't
happen to have the "necessary" in-hand, just fijl out
the following blank and bring or send ~it~ in to The
Sentinel office, rear Langley Theatre, and we will
take a chance with you between now and the- end of
the year.
The Sentinel is out to assist in the development
of this glorious' valley, and in return asks for a little
assistance.   Thank you.
