HOSPITAL ACCOUNTS
DISTURB COUNCILLORS
Fortnightly Meeting of Municipal Council Held on Saturday Last.
"These hospital accounts are becoming
a serious thing, and some drastic action
will have to be taken at once it this
Council does not want to suffer heavy
financial loss," was the way Keeve
Poppy put it, when Acting Clerk Hum-
dall turned in several recent accounts
received from the Vancouver General
Hospital and the Royal Columbian Hospital, "The Council is out some $700
to date, and there seems no end to it
ju8t so long as present arrangements
prevails Patients go to the hospitals,
leave without paying up and their accounts are charged up to the municipalities, and the latter have no other
option but paying up. These delinquent
patients will have to be gone after at
once without gloves and where found
able will, be forced to come throngh
without delay," concluded the Reeve.
In this he was upheld by the Council,
who generally spoke along the same
lines.
The meeting of the Municipal Council
on Saturday last was confined chiefly to
routine business. The only incident to
cause a stir was the little tilt between
Councillor Bray and Engineer Breckon,
over certain road appropriations in
Conn. Bray's ward. The latter contended that, as Ward l's representative,
he certainly should know what was re-
n.quired. The engineer took the stand
that he was held responsible for carrying out all municipal road work to the
best advantage, and in the best interests
of the public he was forced to question
the wisdom of Coun. Bray's road plans.
Coun. Smith took the ground that the
Councillors should be solely responsible
for all expenditures within their respective wards aud that the engineer' was
thers simply to see that the work was
. properly carried out. There should be
no duplicity of responsibility.
It was finally agreed to hold up Coun.
Bray's grant until he could go over the
proposed work with the engineer and
endeavor to come to a mutual agreement On the matter.
The Municipal Engineer'e report for
the month was read and adopted. It
■hows the following expenditures in the
different wards as follows : Ward 1—
1378.75; Ward 2, $374.35; Ward 3, $153;
Ward 4, $224.33; Ward 5, $186.43;
Ward 6, $465.84.
Municipal Clerk R. A. Payne, who
has been confined to the house for the
past five weeks suffering from an aggravated case of mumps, attended the
meeting for a few minutes and expressed
regrets at his protracted absence, and
intimated his proboble early return to
doty. Mr. Payne is far from well and
his many friends are hoping for an early
restoration of his usual good health.
Mr. N. C. Abercrombie and J. Evans,
as representing the Chautauqua to be
held at Langley Prairie the week of,
May 23-28, appeared before the Council
to elicit their support of this carnival of
high class artists, Mr. Evans, who is
advance agent for the Dominion Chautauqua, addressed the meeting on the
advantages of having his people come
into the district. Their entertainments
were highly educational and entertaining and should appeal to all seeking
clean and helpful enter*»inment.
The Reeve showed his approval in a
substantial way by buying a season's
ticket, and the Councillors generally
spoke in appreciative terms of the idea,
and promised to attend at least one performance.
CHAUTAUQUA MATTERS.
The local Chautauqua committees
met on Friday night in the Yale Hotel
J. Evans presiding. The ticket selling
committee reported excellent results to
date and seemed quite optomistic about
being able to dispose of all season tickets in good time. A special drive will
be put on to-morrow when a house to
house canvass will be made.
Storekeepers will be asked to close
Jtheir places of business every afternoon
during the programme, to re-open immediately afterwards.
The grounds committee reported that
everything was in-readiness for the
erectionof the big tent. Mr. Donnelly
has kindly loaned his piano to the committee. From no on everyone should
be working overtime to put it over big.

NFW WESTMINSTER
MARKET QUOTATIONS
New Westminster, Friday, May 13.—
Mayor J, J. Johnston, asked for an expression of opinion regarding to-day's
market, on behalf of The Sentinel, said:
"I have known the Fraser Valley market ever since it started; I have ' een
fairly closely connected with it through
good times and bad times; I never saw
a bigger attendance than is here to-day,
and I never saw anything kike as much
produce in certain lines, bedding and
garden plants for instance."  .
The attendance crowded every foot of
room, and outside on the auction square
the veteran A. G. Marshall, and A. A.
Lundy, formerly of Langley Prairie,
each had a big crowd of buyers for livestock, good milking cows being in strong
demand at around $100 apiece. The
feature, as the Mayor rightly asserted,
was the trade in nursery and garden
plants. There were two new stalls.in
the section, but even then the demand
exceeded the supply.
Mr. J. H. Dean, of Aldergrove, wiped
a perspiring brow the while he stopped
selling plants just long enough to assure
The Sentinel man that never in his long
experience of this market and the Fraser
Valley had he experienced anything
like the present demand for planting
stock.
Mr. K. N. Terpstra brought in 40 cases
of eggs from the Langley-Milner route,
and got the top drice of the day for
most of them, too. Eggs were weaker,
down to 25c per doien wholesale before
the close of trading, with 27c top price,
and not many sold at that figure.
Butter receded also, the top being 65c
wholesale, with some sales at 50c. The
best retail price for eggs was 35c per
dozen. Broilers were everywhere, but
at that fetched better prices than last
week all through, heavy breeds going as
high as 40c to 60c per lb. with Leghorns from 20c to 30c. Light hens were
down to around 25c per lb, heavy hens
selling around 30c.
Pork was not in strong demand, and
heavy carcases were disposed of as low
as 10c per lb wholesale, with 21c rarely
obtained for prime. Veal was down 2c
all round, with 20c best.
There was a slight upward trend in
hides, after a prolonged period of inactivity.
The following prices ruled:
Poultry—Broilers, light breeds, 20c to
30c per lb live weight wholesale; heavy
breeds 40c to 50c: light heiiB 25c to 26c;
heavy hens 28c to 30c; roosters 14c to
15c; ducklings '45c; old ducks 30c;
dressed chicken 45c to 50c.
Vegetables—Potatoes, demand firming, $11 to $15 per toa; 75c to $1 sack;
cabbago$6to $8 per 100 lbs; turnips
$1.28 per sack; onions, local 75c sack;
Okanagan $1.25 sack; beets $1 per sack;
carrots dearer, $1.25 sack; parsnips $1.50
to $1.75 sack; rhubarb"cheaper, 5c lb.
Apples—Scarce, $2 to $3 per box.
EggB—Wholesale, 25c to 27c; retail
35c top.
Butter—Lower, 50c to 55c per lb. retail.
Wholesale meat—Pork, prime 17c to
21c, demand weak; heavy, 10c to 12c:
veal, down 8c; choice 18c to 20c; medium 15c; to 18c; thirds 10c to 12c.
Honey—Scarce, per section 50c.
Hides—Slight advance, though demand still light. Bull 1c, kips 6c, greon
2c, salted 3c, calf 10c. An advance of
3c for calf skins tne only featurtt*f note.

THE PRINTERS' STRIKE.
The following article, clipped
from the Vancouver Sun, about
hits its nail on the head, and we
make no apology for reproducing
it:
Job printers of Vancouver now
out on strike for a reduction in
hours from 48 to 44 per week, if
they do not themselves realize it,
must be assured that the public
simply will not stand for further
increases in the present high cost
The "Devil" is coming.
of living. Right up and down the
line, and in almost every business,
the idea has been to pile on costs
an dprofits until prices reached a
point where the public could not
and would not buy.' The public
can do.without most printing.
The rude awakening which was
bound to follow such an insane
policy is everywhere apparent, and
the institution, union or individual
who is fortunate enough to have
been able to already adjust himself
an dhis business so that he is now
enjoying normal conditions, is indeed in a happy position.
It is hopeless for an employer
today to go out and attempt to
justify an increase in the price of
any commodity, and printing certainly falls within that category.
And it is just as hopeless for labor
to demand increases when the reverse is in order. Whether the increase is arrived at by an increase
in wages or a reduction of working
hours, makes no difference. Reduction in hours in only a temporary subterfuge which is followed
up later on by a demand for increased wages.
The issue, then, is whether or not
eight hours is too long to expect
a printer to work.
Where there is such a wholehearted desire throughout the
country for the return of honest
value and honest work, and where
employers, executives and men of
responsibility are everywhere strenuously working, not eight, but as
high as sixteen hours per day, we
have no hesitation in strenuously
opposing any reduction of the
eight-hour day, and in saying to
the men that their demands are untimely, unwise, and unwarranted.

Langley Prairie has now reached
the stage when more housing accommodation will have to be
provided or the town can never
hope to attain its rightful place
in the sun. Families are now waiting to come in and make this their
permanent residence (with the
resultant expenditure of much
ready-cost) and give to this community that stability which comes
with well kept homes. Let some
of our citizens, who have the
wherewithal, come forward and
show their faith in their town by
doing the necessary building. The
business aspect alone should attract
them.   Now get busy.

"The grievances of the municipalities against the Provincial
Government's inherited system
of unfair taxation must be remedied if British Columbia is to go
ahead," said Mr. F. A. McDiartnid,
solicitor for the Union of B. C.
Municipalities addressing a meeting of the Constitutional Club on
Friday night. "The Municipality
is only allowed the taxes on land
and land improvements," he continued, "and the cost of municipal
services has altogether outgrown
the revenue from these sources,
especially in the congested areas.
"In 1919 the arrears of taxation
amounted to $7,000,000 and as the
land concerned becomes the property of the municipalities and,
therefore, untaxable the deficit
must be raised on the property of
the remainder of the municipality.
On the otherhand, if the property
is sold, the land values of the
remainder of the community must
automatically drop the sale level,
and in this; manner still further decrease revenue. It will, therefore,
be seen that the municipalities are
sa as the burden will fall on the
between the devil and the deep blue
sea as the burden will fall'on the
people who have paid their taxes
in either case.
"Th^>fcqvertfnient has incerased
the municipal services without increasing the sources of revenue and
in some cases has even taken away
old sources of revenue, such as
the fire insurance tax. Prior to
Itbe advent of the automobile, the
^jnajority of roads were of macadam and it was easy for the land
to pay for improvements, but now

these roads are worthless and there
is no money forthcoming to pay
for reconstruction as the automobile tax goes to the provincial authorities instead of to the municipalities.
"It is true that the government
promised 50 per cent, of the liquor
profits, but on the other hand it
has burdened the municipalities
with the erection and maintenance
of hospitals.
"The present system is radically
wrong," he further stated, "because
it makes the municipalities look
askance at increasing population as
it means increased public services
without additional revenue."
In conclusion, he stated that Premier Oliver had promised to give
the matter his earnest consideration at the fall sessions. THE VALXEY SENTINEL

Regulations Governing the Granting
of Stumping Powder to Farmers
and Settlers.
STAY WITH MEAL TICKET.
"There will be an increased acreage under cultivation this year by
soldier settlers under the board all
over Canada," states Mr. "L. B.
Boyd, inspector of western offices
of the Soldier Settlement Board.
Discussing the general farming situation, Mr. Boyd expressed the
opinion that the acreage seeded
this year would show a considerable reduction over that of 1920.
While there would be less grain
sown, more attention would be paid
on the part of the farmers than
ever before to intensive farming
of the best kind. The importance
of the farm cow, the farm pig, and
the farm hen, was realized as never
before by farmers^ generally.
Mr. Boyd said the cities generally were full of unemployed, while
there was no unemployment on the
land. Even though the price of
agricultural products had suffered
a marked ckpp there was no poverty among farmers. The men on
the land showed every intention of
staying with their "meal ticket."
The following conditions shall govern the
distribution of the $300,000 voted by the Legislature for rebates where the powder is pur
chased for land-clearing purposes:
Applicants shall be bona fide owners or
lessees of lands in respect to which applications are made and clearing operations shall
have been carried on for agricultural purposes
only. i
Grants will be paid on a basis of not more
than ten cases of powder to each applicant and
not more than Ave cases for each acre prepared
for production thereby.
Applicants shall sign declarations upon
forms supplied by the department of agricuture,
setting forth the legal description of the land
upon which the powder has been used, the
number of cases of explosives actually used in''
the clearing operations and the number of acres
of land upon whioh the work has been oarried
on
Applications shall be signed in the presence
of. and witnessed by one of the following
persons:
The secretary of a farmers' institute, the
secretary of any association or society Incorporated under any act of the Legislature
carrying on work of substantially the same
character as that carried on by farmers1 institutes: any official of the Provincial Government
of British Columbia.
Upon receipt at the department of agriculture
of suoh declaration and application form, with
invoiee of powder purchased, rebate will be
made upon a basis of $2.50 per case to the extent
set out in clause three of these regulations.
In all cases where there Is to be an application for a rebate a declaration must be made
setting out the full particulars of the land,
the amount of powder used and invoice carrying its purchase.

Minister of Agrioulture.

TO DISCUSS ROAD
' CLASSIFICATIONS
Mr: Alex. D. Patterson, member
for Delta was over the Scott Road
last week in company with Government road engineers.. He has
also met representatives of the
Surrey and Delta councils on the
subject of the classification of the
Scott and other roads.
Regarding the Scott Road, Mr.
Patterson states that the latest proposal is for Surrey and Delta councils to bear 25 per cent, each, and
the government 50 per cent, of the
cost of hard paving. Owing in
part to the fact that no definite
agreement was arrived at earlier,
there is not much chance of an
appropriation for the Scott Road
this year.
In the meantime a suggestion is
being put before the Government
that it should bear 75 per cent, of
the cost of paving the flat stretch
on the Surrey side of the inter-
municipal boundary at any rate,
and agree to a 40 to 60 per cent,
ratio of maintenance expenditure,
40 per cent by the Government,
and 30 per cent, each by Surrey
and Delta.
The whole question of the classification of roads, primary and secondary roads in particular, is to be
settled, it is hoped, at a forthcoming joint' meeting of the Delta,
Surrey and Langley councils,
which Mr. Patterson and Government road engineers will attend.

WATCH FOR THE
CENSUS TAKER
Census Commissioner Corbould
Instructing His Assistants in
Somewhat Complex Duties.
PRINTING THAT PLEASES
G. Y. TIMMS
Langley Prairie
Preparations for taking decennial census of the Dominion of
Canada are well under way, and
by the 1st of June, the official
starting to-day, should find everything and everybody ready for the
pistol. The taking of the census
this year is some task, as there
are hundreds of questions to be
answered, and when they are all
answered there will be "little left
to tell.
In all there are five separate
forms for various uses. Form No
1 is the population census. On it
every man, woman and child in
Canada is entered. It requires ho
particular elucidation. The questions, it asks are the usual oones,
such as name, sex, age, nationality,
place of birth, race, religion, occupation, etc.
Form No. 2, the agricultural census, is what is known in the popular phraseology as "a bear." Mr.
Corbould hopes by publicity to
persuade the farmers in his district
to make rather special preparations
in oredr that they may be able to
impart the information desired
when the enumerators call around.
For some of the questions are such
that the average farmer could not
answer them offhand.
This form contains questions
comprised under no few than sixty-
five headings, with half a dozen
questions or more under each heading. Fortunately, not all the headings are applicable to all parts of
Canada. For instance, there are
questions relative to the maple
sugar industry of the eastern provinces. But at that there are
enough questions to peek many an
honest farmer figuring for quite a
spell; and as the enumerators are
required to make out the forms
themselves, not to leave them to be
filled out, and as foreover they are
working on a piece-work basis, it
is desirable that they should be
able to get the information sought
with as little delay as possible.
In cases where people are absent
from their permanent abode while
the census is being taken, the enumerator will secure such information as he can from a neighbor and
will enter it on a card issued for
that purpose.. Children who are at
a boarding school or elsewhere
away from home will be listed at
their permanent residence, not at
their temporary abode.^
Form No. 3 is a special form to
be made out for people who, living
on places of less than one acre,
carry out some form of productive
endeavor. It will be applied even
to those who on a city lot keep a
few chickens or grow some small
fruit.
Form No. 4 is*a census of manu
facturing, trading and business establishments, and is a very simple
form requiring only the name,
class, and nature of the concern.
The fifth form is a special one
for the purpose of making a census
of deaf mutes.
Under the heading of acreage,
the farmer is required to give such
information as the acreage of his
place, how much improved, how
much woodland, how much waste
larld, how much from which there
was no crop in 1920 because of
crop failure; and of the improved
land, how nraeh in pasture in 1920
and in 1921, how much lying idle
or fallow, and so forth.
With this as a good starter, the
farmer will be invited to proceed
to farm values, with details as to
buildings, machinery and equipment. Then comes farm expenditures for 1920, under which head
he must give amounts paid for
feed, for manure and fertiliser, for
seed, and for labor, in cash and
in board. These rae details which
probably few farmers could remember off hand, hence the need
for being prepared.
This might seem plenty and
enough, but the bulk of the questions areyet to come. Under the
headings of crops, figures are
asked as to the production of
everything grow non the farm,
even to the product of the home
vegetable garden. There follow
questions as to orchard fruit, small
fruits, grapes, greenhouse and hothouse products, domestic animals,
poultry, bees, pure bred animals,
farm facilities such as tractors,
etc., co-operative marketing, drainage an dirrigation.
Specific assurance is given that
this mass of information is purely
for statistical purposes. Some people may suspect that it is to be
used as a check on income tax returns, but not so.
