This  is the headquarters i'or Tourists,-where our workmen are  good on any car. . :  PERSONALS  MATSQUI   COUNCIL  MEETS  Knowing the binding power or uit,  written  word,   the   Matsqui   council  lias hesitated for two meetings to ac-  . ?ept the. compromise offered by Mr.  Merryfield Sr,, in compensation     for  gravel taken from his property.    By  inadvertantly  crossing   the  property  line 'in removing gravel from its pit  the council rendered itself liable for  damages. The owner thinks that $50'  worth of gravel has been taken -and  a  huge gap  put  in   his   fence   line.  Coun. Aish was asked by the council  to make a report on the claim and  with his approval a second proposal  was made, that the council pay $2 5  and fill up the hole with dirt.    When  the council first received this the first  thought was   to  accept,   but  in  the  wording of the letter the gap was to  be filled when Mr.  Merryfield    was  ready to put up his fence.    Such a  time might be very inconvenient for  'the council.    It might cost $100   to  get teams, and labor on short notice  and more earth for that fill although  if its own time was aljewed it would  be very convenient to dump soil there  as the gravel bed was stripped.  Mr.  W.  Merr,yfield met the coun-  ��������� on Monday representing his father.  He said the time clause' was merely  . to protect themselves and could be  waived for any reasonable substitute  ��������� but the matter should be decided  without loss of more time. An a-  greement will now be drawn up that  will not hurt the susceptibilities ot  the council.  Another gravel pit lying south on  the Mt. Lehman road can no longer  lie iuvpeace. It is the one resting uncomfortably on the corner of the  Township road where the Lehman  road rising from the gully swerves  east to get around it. Mr. S. Leslie Brice wishes to. fence his property  on the east side of the road and will  probably bring his line into the middle of the road. Coun. Keay is satisfied that there will be quite enough road left next the gravel when  property line is put.out, but ho will  have the road foreman on tlio job to  see- that the traffic is not obstructed  ���������at all.  A request was made through the  clerk for, the council to compel the  owner of some wanton pigs to koep  them on his own premises. They  had rooted up potatoes, bitten off  beano and cabbages, and finally came  to the flower beds and picked off the  roses. Fortunately for the council  the fences crossed were not on the  road, and they were able to leave the  question of a legal fence and proper  damages to be settled by a civil action. What happened off the roads  was not their concern. But immediately Mr. Towlan came up to the  table with a report of a stray bull on  the road, This they must look after and after trying first the complainant, then the councillor and afterwards the constable with the suggestion of tying up the bull, they  concluded that it was the business o'  the poundkeeper to go out and got  the bull. The poundkeeper was not  present.  Mr. Sinciair was seeking work on  the read from the council wanted to  stipulate that the work be don", by  himsejf and' where he considered it  best to' do it. While the council  was willing to meet him in his difficulties, they reserved the right to  control the spending of their money  nor would they listen to accusations  against any- of their body. /When  Mr. Sinclair is ready to do the work  Councillor Melander will go with  him over the road and have repairs  mane where-they will best serve the  mail delivery route. The whole  meeting was a successive avoidance  of other people's troubles and being  saddled .with problems that did not  belong to them. In acepting subdivision roads Lliey demanded that a  certified cheque for the estimated  cost of constructing the subdivision  roads lie handed over to them before  the plans can be accepted. No longer will they have, thrust upon them  these- small roads as charges to the  whole district. They consider that  the cost should be met by the persons who devises and benefits by  them.  This stipulation was made concerning the dividing of the Stewart  place and all others in the' future.  Regarding the Rand subdivision at  Bradner, where many returned soldiers had bought expecting a road to  be opened the solution is found by  Rand & Fowler subscribing $4 00 to  the council. Tlrft sum is the estimate of Coun. Keay of the cost of  building a road there. Mr. Rand's  proviso that tho. work be done by the  settlors on the property can only be  met insofar as the settlers are available and qualified to do the work,  nor can the suggestion that the Lombard road be slashed through at the  council's expense be considered this  year.  Another .subdivision trouble was  brought by Mr. Mr. Thompson who  had bought property south of Clay-  burn understanding that a road was  gazetted along the south edge of It.  This gain is private trouble, but the  council will back up the efforts of the  owner to get justice. As a quarter  section line runs past, the council  have the right to expropriate a road  allowance and may do so before the  settler resorts to a flying machine to  get out���������as one of the interested  parties scornfully told  him.

The   New  Leader  The Liberals have chosen their  lender to mice the place of the late  Sir Wilfrid. William Lyon Mackenzie King is the new leader that is  asked to Lead tho party to victory  politically.  Omitting the name-King fro mthe  rest of the leader's name we are reminded of that other great Reformer  who after a precarious career in the  history of the party in Canada had  to leave the country remaining away  for some twelve years, it is to be  hoped that there is not much in a  name after all���������-especially in this  case. There is very good material  to work on these days for a rebellion.  'The new leader will become acquainted with the W'esf in a proposed  tour. He is a young man in politics  and before he has arrived- at the age  when men are most successful in- the  political field he will have gained a  great deal of experience.  Started on  Right Track  There   is   nothing   like   getting   -i  good start, no matter what a man  '������ees at', so we find the new Liberal  leader consulting the. present premier  of Canada���������t he loader of the Union  government at Ottawa. The press do"  .not saT> what was discussed, but perhaps i. was collective bargaining  ���������wiih a view to having politically the  same state as previous to the last  election. Wonder what he offered  to pay Borden for the wise heads of  the former Liberal party-who have  not returned since 1017.  Huying At Home  We believe it is the duty of every  resident of B. C. to buy in the province, preferably in the home  town.  That is the way the province will be  built up.    It would not be good policy  for a man  to earn  B.  C.  wages  and send to the prairies or to some  other province  for his    butter,     his  eggs, his clothes and that of his family.We hear a great deal those days  of the value of the Canadian dollar.  What about the B. C. dollar?    They  tell us that the reason the Canadian  dollar is worth only 92 cents in Buif-  alb   and. 9 5   and   9 6   cents   in   otho;  parts of the states is because Canadians buy too much American goocij  thus helping to increase the adverse  trade''balance and to make Canadian  money of less value across the international border.     In other words the  people of  Canada got  into  debt  because they purchase American goods  instead  of  Canadian  goods,  we  presume, oven if they got thorn cheaper.  Tho main point is that it lowers the  volume of Canadian  business.     Now  what about purchasing from Eaton's  Simpsons  and  some  of    tho,    othei  places.    True the goods may bo purchased  cheaper,   but  those  firms  dc  1 not help to pay the taxes of the people of B. C.     By purchasing in B. C  a  certain amount of  the price  paid  goes  into the  provincial tax collector's   hands   and   thus   helps   to   pay  for   the  building  of  our  roads,   our  schools, etc.,  By buying in your own  home town you are helping to support  those  institutions,    which     pay  into your provincial treasury.    Nothing is to.bo gained by sending money  out of the province.    If all did  that;  there would be. less use for'.the merchant class hero,    eventually    these  people would have to engage- in other  busnioss or go elsewhere    and    the.  trade  would   be  confined  to  a   few.  and your dollar would havo less purchasing power, even in paying taxes.  No person who sends out of the province for groceries, drygoods, etc. for  family use will over become millionaires by. that system and    the    few  . cents saved in that way is again lost  in having l.o pay it out in higher taxation.  With tlio higher taxes upon us wo  believe no man or woman should  send one dollar out of the province  it is possible to keep here. Do you?  Bring all that it is possible but send  none out is what, the American people  are trying to do these days.  No Faith In Oliver Either  "A great many comments havo. been  made to the writer and wo have received several letters re the remarks  we made in the papers last week re  the roads in the Roosville Valley and  the Flagstone district, and we say  again that the roads are rotten and  it is a crime for any government to  ignore them the way this false alarm  government is ignoring the . whole  people. This is.no attack on Supt.  (if Roads,. McDonald, -He's the best  man the'district has had, and doing  good work, and giving good satisfaction all along the rout^ but its the  nihcompoopsr,ahead of him that know-  no more about road building than a  bullfrog knows about an eagle. The  sooner John Oliver and his whole  bunch is back on the'farm hoeing  spuds and weeding onions; the better  for the taxpayer of B. C. The people of B. C, wanted a change of government and. they got one, and the.  sooner they make , another change  the better."  The above is one of the clippings  received at this offico this week and  shows that this paper is not the only  one in the province that is not strong  on boosting for Premier Oliver. It is  the same old question of roads.  When ��������� the present government  reaches that-stage where it has to  ,give an account of its stewardship  to the people of B. C. it will be very  hard .to explain many things in connection with the- present system of  carrying on tho public works of this  province, unless of course votes -are  bought with the. people's money , at  election time,-by-spreading it. broad-'  cast, for odd-jobs to be-done a couple  of months before election time.  Much has been said in these .columns regarding the road "������������������ work of  the province, but we believe every  word wo say is backed up' by the people around here .and that there- are  thousands in the province who would  express their opinion 'much stronger.  But tho system under ��������� which ' the  government is- carrying on its public  worltB throughout tho province is so  far as we can make out carried on  under a wrong system. We doubt  very -much whether wie have responsible; government in our public^ works  department or not, or whether there  is not some, arbitrary spirit who is  responsible for complaints that are  coming from all parts of the .province, and trying to throw the blame  on some employ.ee of the government.'  We doubt very much whether a  great many of the-members of the  present house know just what is going on in their particular riding unless they are very clsely in touch  with tho district. We don't think for  one moment that .the public works  department consults the member foi  the district in the matter of bridges,  and trails. We were givien a specific  case of this kind last week from e  responsible source. - .When a memboi  no longer represents his district ho.  should resign.  Mission Council  .

PROVINCIAL  FALL  FAIR  ������������������ The*'prize list for the Westmin-  tcr. Fall Fair is reaching the'people  of 'this district this week throug the  mails.  fit is a reminder of tho fair at. the  end of this month and the beginning of- next month'���������Sept. 29 to  October 4 th, inclusive.  The fair has always been a favorite  with the Mission people and many  will attend this year again no doubt  o  FANNING MILL SELECTION  The true function.of the fanning-1  mill is to remove weed seeds, light'  ���������grain and any coarse material that  may be present. For this work is  indispensable; no s.eed^ should be  sown which has not been thoroughly cleaned and graded. There are.  however, certain limitations to this  method of selection which are not always appreciated by the grain grower.  Fahuiug mill selection maintains  the yield of a pure variety but does  not increase it as many suppose. The  constant increase in yield that some  have obtained fro my earto year has  been due to the fact that originally  their seed: was impure, and the larger seeds happening to be the most  ���������productive, were selected to tha exclusion of the smaller and less prolific grains. Also, by. the accidental  mixture of a few large seeds of another sort, it can be easily understood how the type of variety-may be  altered if fannlng-miU selection a-  ione is practised. 'However; this  ���������possibility can be avoided and should  not deter any person from the use  of the  fanning  mill.  To grow pure grain of strong vitality, the fanning mill.must be used  in conjunction with the seed .plot.  In this way Its highest point of efficiency is reached.

The regular meeting of the school  board was held in the library on  Thursday last with' a full board; the  chairman Trustee Clark occupying  the chair again for the Jirst time  after his recent accident.  Several other, meti.ngs were held  since Thursday, the business of engaging teachers, for the coming term  being a strenuous one, seemingly.  There .are several teachers yet to  be engaged.

The most important of these delegations   was  one  from   the  (cache's  who sent Mr.  A.  Stafford and Rev.  C. McDiarmid, who submitted a scale  of  wages  for  the  consideration     of  the board.    This meeting was the result  of  numerous     oth^r,    meetings  earlier  in  the year  at    which     the  teachers requested that their salaries  .be   raised.    The  following     is     the  scale' placed before the board:  High School salary to be:  Principal   $.1500   with  increase  of  $60   for   5   years;   Assistant   $1300,  with increase of $60".for five years.  Public School salaries to be:,.

Ungraded one-roomed schools $840  with increase of $60 for 5 years.  Should the above salaries be accepted by the board the increases become retroactive.  No action was taken by 'the board  but a suggestion was made that a  resolution be placed on the books for  t he guidance of the new board of  1020,'but it!was not done, although  the increases will'bo a subject of  discussion at the annual meeting and  probably the trustee elections.  Mr. Stafford gave a synopsis of the  work of the'Federation of Teachers  at its annual meeting, held recently.  One' of the points' made by thu  delegation was that in the unorganised districts where the teachers are  wholly paid by the government the  teachers in the one-roomed schools  get $60 per annum more than the  teachers in Mission Municipality.  Another  room  is  to   be  added  to  the Mission City public    school    for  the coming term making six divisions  instead of five.    A teacher had to be  appointed   for   the   second   division;  one to replace Miss Catherwood who  recently resigned; and one to fill the  vacancy caused by the resignation of  Miss Portsmouth.    Some of tho district schools also required teachers.  Then began a long    tedious '  but  interesting work of reading all these  applications and it was really a good  thing that the secretary had formerly called out the trains as they left  the Mission station, as it had strengthened his voice.    He    opened    one  'application after another, read them  then passed them over    to    Trustees  Fraser and Taulbut, who not even in  their palmiest days could   havo had  the privilege of reading more communications sent by young ladi.s; a  number of applications    were    also  ead from returned soldiers and other  male teachers.    The work grew tedious and was postponed until Saturday morning at 8:30 when appointments were made.  The applications had been divided  into those who had applied for the  second division and for the junior  division. The junior division applications  had  remained  unread.

These men pride themselves  on their private trade. How would  it be for them if all were as selfish?  We should join the local union, and  then work for it. There is a difference between being a member and a  worker. It is the worker that makes  for success. The outsider waits for  the power; he is no part of it to  force the issues, never thinking that  'success or failure in his business depends on his co-operation. These  outsiders are all.ethereal co-operators, but they never get their feet on  the ground.

In Central Alberta the  crop is going to be better than was  expected some time ago. 'It was not  so badly hurt with the continued dry  'weather that it can not come back.  and it is now stretching pretty well.  With the condition in the Peace Rival- and the progress of Che'Control  Alberta crop it looks like at least a  good half crop for the whole of the  province.

C.  1 Representing  ttoiird  Companies  Only  SKKIOUS   SUUAit   SITUATION  (From Markets Bulletin)  We are informed today (Aug. 9)  that the action of the Minister of  Trade and Commerce in cancelling  all export licenses'will not prevent  export of sugar for weeks. Unless  an immediate embargo is placed on  export sugar to hold good until the  Canadian market obtains a normal  supplv, thousands of. dollars' worth  oi stone fruits will be sacrificed.  The fifty carloads reported diverted  to the West cannot be located by the  Saskatchewan dealers and there is  other evidence that the refineries are  not dtfing all they can for the Canadian consumer. Arrangements should  be made to stop European export oi  sugar from Montreal and extend the  territory to be -supplied from Montreal to the Alberta border. Saskat-  ���������SP  chewan should  not be discriminated  against and their supply should bo  drawn from Montreal instead of Vancouver until normal conditions pro-  vail.  Sugar distribution on the prairie-?  has for two years been a problem  during fruit preserving month, as a  ���������serious shortage has existed. Discrimination has been charged, and  ���������such has existed without intent.- The  need of a board of equalization of (lis  tril'uiion is apparent, when (he slip-  ply is in the hands of one concern  for the West. Arrangements should  be made in Winter, for the prairies'  supply in preserving time, and an a-  grement signed that . delivery be  made of a specified quantity in a  given time.  We  would   suggest   that- a  board  of oiualization be composed of a "e-  piescntativc of the 13 .0. F. G  the Western Jobbers Assn., :ind  Traffic and Credit Assn. This arrangement would secure the ship pen  the trade and the consumers against  a repetition  of sugar shortage.  We urgently request that all shippers of stone fruit should immediately on receipt of this Bulletin wire to  t he Minister of Agriculture at Ottawa urging him to use his influence  in placing an immediate embargo on  export, sugar, until such time as the  needed supply in Canda is obtainable  or   until   normal   conditions   prevail  IllCill   SCHOOL   TKXT   HOOKS  Pupils wishing  to enter  the  high  Kchol  in    September    will     provide  ���������themiiolvcs  with  tho following  textbooks:   Hall  and  Stovons'   Geometry  (Canadian      edition);      Hail      and  Knight's Elemntary Algebra;  Fraser  and  Squair's High     School    French  Grammar;    ,   Sicpmann's       Primary  French Course, Part J;  Scott's Ivan-  hue;   Arithmetic  (same text as used  in Imti-ance    work);       Composition  (sa-fud text as    used    in    Entrance-  worn);   Fifth   Reader   (supplied   by  the  department);   First Latin  Book  (supplied   by  tho  Department).
