T  saving    the    adjoining  At the regular meeting of the Board of Trade on Monday  evening the question of a bridge across the Fraser River was  again brought up and it was decided that in the best interests  of Matsqui on the south side of the River and Mission town and  Mission municipality on the north and the. general traffic from  outside both districts, that the question of a bridge should tie  kept fully alive. With simply a irry across the Fraser that  makes a trip only every forty minutes business is not facilitated  to the same extent;as if there were a jtrip made. every_ctwenty.  minutes; or better still a bridge ..that .would be open the full  day., It was pointed out that Matsqui is one of the important  districts on the south side of the riv-r, as. instanced by the  taking over of the Hygienic Dairy (now Amiens Training Farm)  forthe purpose of training the soldiers in the art of agriculture.  This is a recognition that Matsqui should feel proud of and do  a little boosting on her own account���������a recognition that places  - Matsqui as one of the very foremost agricultural districts.on the  south side of the river. Then there is the ever increasing small  fruits district on the north, side of the river. A bridge across  the Fraser at Mission.City would unite these two districts as one  in a business way. It would also give Mission City another  railway to ship fruit over into the prairie districts. It would  do the same for Matsqui.  The bridge is wanted and the following resolution was passed,  not with the idea of pleasing everybody, but with the idea of  having some basis to start from:  Re Bridge across Fraser River, at.'Mission  City, B.C.  Inasmuch as the C. P. R. has refused to allow  their bridge to be converted into a combined  traffic and railway bridge;  Resolved that this Board of Trade apply to  both the Dominion and Provincial Governments for a separate traffic bridge to be built  across the Fraser River at the town of Mission  City, and would suggest that the cost of this  bridge be borne by the Provincial Government,  the Dominion Government and the people���������  division of cost to be as follows: one-third, by  the Province, one-third by the Dominion, and  the remaining one-third to be advanced by the  Dominion Government, and to be liquidated by  a toll to be extended over a period of years.  Further that, the bridge be built across the  Fraser to land at the foot of Home Avenue, the  present wharf at Mission City, as this would  necessitate but a small piece of road to be built  on the south side of the river to connect with  the Huntingdon-Riverside road, which runs a-  bout due south from the Fraser to the International Boundary line at Sumas, Wash.  The neighboring municipalities of Matsqui  and Mission having heartily endorsed the plan  of a bridge at Mission City, we think the time  is ripe for the construction of this bridge.  We humbly beg the Dominion and Provincial  entrust the monies voted by parliament for this purpose to some national organization which had the necessary    adriiinistrative      machinery  buildings.

Premier. Oliver rushes into  print to call the Vancouver Sun down, and asks a. lot of very  nasty questions which would lead one .to believe that,the old  saying, 'when thieves fall out honest men get-their dues'. We  don't like to see our Premier get so grieved and lose his dignity  like that. Maybe it might mean that there is a lot in-what the  Sun says?  Too much drink is not good for any man, but there is. perhaps something in it 'that the human system craves for alchohol'  and it also again shows that when anything is. denied a man he  is sure to move heaven and earth to These are however  the dayswhen the individual seeks-more.ireedom-and does want  to be bound down so that he does not have the liberty of .getting  what he wants. Here applies.,the same,\yhat ouv politicians are so worried about���������class control.- If class control is  not good to the extent that the farmer should go into.parliament  can class coiitrorbe good when the moralist says,, 'strong drink  must sold.' Does it work the same? The power of dictation is strong in the human make-up and when one body of  men or women start to dictate, there are always those .who will  not be dictated to. Consequently we do not"believe "that any  system of prohibition, these days, will be an entire success:. ������  rt looks as though the Kaiser kept, quite busy in  Mission City if he came here a wood-chopping at the present  time  Wc bate to knock our climate, but surely somebody hap,  erred in lotting down upon us this cold spell..
