Lamson road culvert before  the councill.meeting, Reeve Cook and  Councillor Austin were held up by  a balky engine. Refusing all persuasive methods to start, the car  had to be left, and the gentlemen  were found walking back- by Councillor Lamson, who went out to the rescue. Business-therefore commenced  | late in the day, nor did the reports  and correspondence show much progress. -        ������������������  The big ditching contract' on tne  Angus Campbell road was not yot  completed, reported Engineer Humphrey. He had recommended boxing  a certain distance where sand was exposed in the cut, as this would eventually fill in, but the landowners i  had not responded to the suggestion  as it would bring the cost up to  about fifteen hundred dollars. Mr  Murphy In requesting an pxtension of  time, expected,to have it completed  by  Dec.   lr.th. j  In the matter of establishing    the  Boundary road,    the    council    after  much    negotiation  found themselves  back where they started.    The lands  to be travelsed by this    road    were  Dominion- grants and not subject to  the twentieth    appropriation   rights. I  according to a letter    received from  the  Inspector of Municipalities,  wh?> .  had been looking into   the   registra-'  tions.  lhe  municipal  solicitor  had     not  cleared the situation very much and I  and as Councillor Lamson remarked,  the only solution he could see    was  I'or the    council to    expropriate    the  land required and submit to the    do-1  cision of an arbitration board.    The  proposed road would run from What-���������.  com road west along the Internation- i  al   Boundary  to  Huntingdon,  deviating northward at the Fraser proper-  ty. ', v    ���������. ���������   .- :���������!  ��������� The suggestion of Engineer Humphrey made to the previous meeting  of the council that the whole of town-j  ship nineteen be resurveyed and the!  cost levelled proportionately on areas  benefitted, did not find favor with  the council when he appeared on Saturday to recommend it.  Portions are already subdivided  under recent surveys. These naturally would not need it, and owners  would object, and while it would be  cheaper in the end to have all corners established, the work had better  wait  more preslng  occasion.

Dec.   8.���������The   re-  jcent mayoral election in Sumas City  had a special interest on this side of-  the border, as the issue centered on  the criticisn levelled at City Marshall  Gaston.    Some of the townsfolk held  that. Gaston  was spending too  much  time assisting the    Canadian    police  against bootlegging    operations   and  Mr.' R.  Lambert was    nominated   -to  oppose the  retiring    mayor, Mr.     F.  j Myers, with the slogan that "Gaston  '.should  go."     Mayor Myers    claimed  'that Gaston was doing good work tor  J the city and should he retained. The  vote on ��������� Saturday    was a    complete  vindication or the policy of the mayor  and the action of-the chief of police,  as Mr. Lambert was "snowed under."
