One year  has sufficed for him to guide the ship  of state of Matsqui, and'' during the  past year he has done well, considering the fact that it is one of the most  difficult years that the municipality,  has seen. There is a large amount  of taxes owing, that, should/be paid,  and no doubt would be paid had'it  not been for the hard times. ' To  finance the municipality, under such  circumstances has been the lot of the  reeve and his council of 1915. That  they have succeeded in maintaining  the credit of the municipality is a  credit and honor to the stability^of  the men sitting at the council board.  The next question that the people  of Matsqui will, have, to deal with is  to elect a reeve and a council for the  coming year that will be-able to still  maintain the credit of the municipality until such times as the taxes are  paid that "are now due and the taxes  for 1916.  Several men have it is understood  been approached on the matter of be-'  ing candidate "for reeve. Among these  are two of the present council���������  Councillor Melander and Councillor  McCallum, both of whom have'excellent records as councillors'and having served on the board for a number  of years. But they will not contest  the reeveship against each other. It is  a kind of mutually agreed that if one,  is nominated for reeve the other  drops out. ��������� \n -' .. ',..; "f =.".'!,. .

A. BATES, -       - Editor and Proprietor  FFRIDAY,  DECEMBER  10,  1915  Have you read the war news this r     Printers Ink is the greatest tonic  morning?    Does it  not   seem   to  lie  vory  contradictory   these   days,   and  yet  the   papers  arc   blamed  for  not  publishing the truth.    The news service of the daily papers is controlled  by an association or associations that  are   not   publishing   the   real   truth  these days about the war.    They arc  all American  concerns and in  some  cases the directors,  we are told are  very  much   anti-British, .and   consequently the news is "doctored"    to  suit other interests besides the poor  Canadian  dailies.    The  time is  ripe  for  an   All-Canadian   News  Service,  and we believe it would be in the interests of Canada if the Borden government would take hold of the matter, so that Canadians would get the  war news, and the news of the world  from   a   Canadian   standpoint.    But  the  daily  papers  have   to   take   the  war news as it comes to them or reject  it,  and  the  rejecting  of  it    is  not always in  the readers  interests  but Canadians will have to learii to  read between the lines, until we get  a better service.  for  business in  hard times���������in war  Is  it  Count  Barn  Storm   (spelled  Bernstorc),   or   Mexico?  Believe in yourself, in humanity,  in the success of your undertakings  Kcar nothing and no one. Love  your work. Work, Hope, Trust.  Keep in touch with today. Teach  yourself to be practical and up to  date and sensible.    You cannot fail.  What is a bigot? A bigot is one  who doon't think as 1 do and sticks  to  it.  RED  CROSS FINANCIAL NEEDS  Another break has come in the  career of the Coquitlam Star���������and it  has failed to materialize in our  sanctum sanctorum for a couple of  weeks. Last year it took a holiday  too and not until another appeared  on the scene did it open up again,  under new management. That leaves  the Fraser Valley Record the only  paper published in the Dewrdney riding. The editor never makes enough  money ��������� to lay off for a couple of  weeks or .a month or more, and so  no matter what happens we have to  -publish each week���������and just think  how nice it would be if we made a  bout ?"8000 in four issues, with a  little paid in advance before the 4th  Issue was off, then we could rest on  our reputation while we collected  the balance. The Star gloried unceasingly when it had the field to itself "again, but its day has come to  be a fallen Star.  Berlin and Ford chatters peace!  Peace on earth! The. powder is not  all  used  up' yet, so the  Allies  say.  The way of the neutral seems hard  these days. It would seems that he  who tries to straddle the fence does  not find it a bed of roses.  When Carnegie got "ungodly rich"  he started libraries to disseminate  knowledge to the man who was unable to purchase a library of his own  When Ford reached the same happy' upon every form of national or in  Anyone who wishes to gain an i-  dea of the expenses which the Red  Cross has to meet, should consult  the financial report of any hospital.  A first class modern hospital requires elaborate scientific aparatus  of all kinds. In all its appointments  it needs the best that money can buy  or else its work is a failure. The  fact that the new General Hospital  in Toronto, with accommodation for  a few thousand patients, cost in the  neighborhood of $2,500,000 will  give some idea of the task of the  Canadian Red Cro'ss which has to  provide for tens of thousands of patients.  Perhaps a large part of the general public is of the impression that  Red Cross work is only hurried relief  work,   requiring in  the  way   of  equipment, only a few yards of ban- .  dages,   a   parcel   of   splints,   a   few:  stretchers,   bearers   and   motor   ambulances.   ���������     The equipment    of the  aid is, it is true, not elaborate, but  it  should  be remembered that  conveying,the wounded from the firing  line   is   only  the , beginning .of   Red  Cross activity.  The wounded soldier has' to be  nursed back to health. His injuries are such as to need the utmost  possible perfection of surgery. The  Red Cross cannot . provide proper  medical attention except with all the  aparatus of a perfectly appointed  hospital. You cannot .cure wounded soldiers any more cheaply than  you can cure any other class of men  False medical economy means thousands of avoidable deaths.  In the rear of the colossal armies  now locked in terrible combat, thousands of hospitals are needed, each  with a perfect equipment. The expense of this is enormous, ��������� but it is  all things that the  a  prior  claim  certain^-ahoye  wounded  soldier  has  state of financial influence he started  on a tour, calling "Peace, Peace"  in order to advertise himself to accumulate more riches. That's the  difference   between the  two  men.  Another fellow says that when  Carnegie got so he could write a big  cheque he put the Hague on a financial basis, but money would not  'make .the mare go' Now when dear  Ford gets so he don't care just how  many dollars are rung up on the cash  register each day, he collects a lot  of  other   people  and  starts  out  to  resurrect the Hague  dividual wealth.  The Red Cross must be supported  .and maintained in the greatest possible state of efficiency. Let everyone who is disposed to make a low  estimate of its financial needs, make  some inquiries as to the cost of running ne hospital anct then multiply  that sum by 10,000 or more.  He will then have a striking arithmetical proof of the gigantic financial burden of the Red Crss Society.  Quakers and the Red Cross  It  would  not an  exaggeration to  British    Columbia's      Leading       Dentists  say. that the Society of Friends was  the real ancestor of the modern-Red  Cross Society. M. Henri Duant the  Swiss Samaritan who organized the  International Red Cross Society was  merely carrying out the principles of  the Society which.. William Penn  founded in England in Cromwell's  day.  The Quaker Society in England  has rendered invaluable assistance to  the Red Cross. A camp was formed at which 60 orderlies were trained in first aid work, camp cooking,  stretcher drill and nursing. This  detachment later went to Dunkirk' to,  help the Belgian wounded and refugees, and established a permanent  hospital in that town and Ypres. The  Dunkirk hospital can accommodate  200 patients.  The Quaker unit today numbers  over 300 members all of whom give  their services gratis in addition to  an outlay of $15,000 a month. They  have established a motor ambulance  convoy which carries wounded from  the section of the firing line held by  the French, and wounded nearest the  sea. The Quaker unit also supply  the stag for a hospital train, and a  few months ago took over a Red  Cros3 train at Abbeville.  They have done a great deal as  well in succouring the civil population in the rear of the firing line,  and in relieving the distress of the  Belgian refugees and of those frontier regions, in which they hvae temporarily  settled. '  In. this work they are assisted by  the  Countess van  ben, Steen  do  Je-  hay and the Countess d'Ursel,  and  of the Belgian and French civil authorities.    Their' agents,  established  in a number of  centres in cthe  districts around."   YpreS    and    Dunkirk  have  gained  a  thorough  knowledge'  of ��������� the   need  and   circumstances   of  the sorely tried inhabitants, to whom  , relief is brought in many ways. Milk  is being supplied .regularly to a very  lage number of nursing mothers and  babies,   clothes , are   being   provided  for the destitute, and medical treatment 'for the -sickV"'   ���������  -'.���������''  ���������  The unit had by. the."end of April  inoculated over 25,000 "civilians ar  gainst enteric,1 and at the request of  the military authority had provided  a pure water supply for an area inhabited by 15,000 persons. Its emissaries have rescued a large number of children from, the fighting  zone and have placed them in -orphanages near St. Omer, and it has  -kept alive, by provision of the necessary matei'ial and instruction, the  lace-making industry of the region,  which the stress of war threatened  to extinguish. It is now engaged  in a search for typhoid carriers.  In connection with this branch of  the work the unit maintains two  smaller civilian hospitals���������the. Hospital Elizabeth at Poperinghe, which  has suffered bombardment more than  once, and a hospital' barge, lying in  a canal at "Mille Brugge, which was  presented and equipped and is being  administered by Mde. O'Gorman,  This barge cannot accommodate  more than 28 patients, but for comfort, economy, and general convenience it would compare favorably  with any land hospital of the same  size.  ter W.

You will remember that the Province a .short time ago-contained an  article on Machine Gun subscriptions  in which if was stated that the Prime  Minister stated that no voluntary  subscriptions would be accepted for  the purchase of machine guns, but  that the government would purchase  these out of the government funds.  As one, of the-Vancouver papers  had before,made a startling statement with reference to those funds,  which on inquiry at Ottawa, was proven incorrect; 1 thought it wise to  make sure in this case, before calling  my committee together to consider  the  Province  statement.  1 therefore wrote to the Minister  of Militia.and received the following  reply  yesterday. ���������  Minister's Office, Ottawa, Nov 3 0th  Dear Sir,  ���������'   Permit me to acknowledge receipt  pf your letter of the 13th inst, with  reference .to machine guns.

OLIVER BLATOHFOHD,  Clerk  1IATZ10 NEWS  The lives of -several passengers  were endangered last Thursday night  when the Agassi/, local and the west.  bound train met. at this station.' It  seems that the local was pulling out  and the last coach had passed when  No. 3 which was a few minutes late  tore by at. a high ate of spocd. Not;  having-noticed the approaching train  many of the passengers had crossed  the tracks but fortunately those remaining were warned just in time  and a serious catastrophe narroAyly  averted. We understand that in, a  situation like this the west-bound  train is supposed to slow up and even come to a full stop if the occasion warrants it. As these trains may  often meet,,-under the same circumstances it is quite necessary for the  public safety that the attention of  the C. P. R. be drawn, to this matter.

A. BATES, -      -- Editor and Proprietor  Stat  FJUDAY, DECEMBER 17, 1915  The passing olV Sir Richard Mc-  ' Bride from'the public life of the province of British Columbia will call  to mind the politics of the past y^ars  buiM'i! Sir Richard took charge of  affairs. People had grown tired of  all the different changes of government with the low credit of the province.    The fact that Sir Rcliard in  .. the face of such unrest maintained  his government in power for twelve  r years, then handing it over to a member of his cabinet, who has been successful in surrounding himself with  a cabinet, mostly from the members  having a seat in the house, shows  that Sir Rcliard is the ablest politician that British Columbia has ever  had the opportunity of giving political ��������� power.  We are all sorry that he has seen  fit to leave provincial politics, but all  no matter the politics, will wish him  success���������the same success���������in his  new sphere.  It is now up to1 Bowser, the present premier to hold together the  contending political forces and give  us just as good government, or better; we do not wish to return to the  unsettled times cf Martin, Prior, Turner, Davio, ct al, again.

I  came as a great surprise. I am pleased to tell you that I belong to tlie  Cold Stream Guards, and    am , very  proud of my dear old regiment;   , I  belong to the 3rd Battalion. Went to  Mons in August, retired from Mons,  to within 24 miles of Paris.    My.regiment- was  fighting rear  guard  all  the way.       We marched  about 240  miles in five days "then we was not  tired".    All -the  time  we  knew the  Allemandes1 were following very close  . behind. .\.J^ suppose ,. the.   Allemand  thought i'������ 'fine' fun' driving 'the eon:  temptible little army' in front cf them  The time came for us to change over,  so we slept in a 'field of maize for'  four hours, then we had hot tea and  to our surprise we started back, the  same   way  as  we  came!     Then  the  fighting commenced,  the  Allemands  shelled  us,' but it    was    the     "4th  Guard's Brigade" and well they knew  it, although  they were as I  believe  nearlly 30, to  1..    We drove them  back   i-ntil; they came  to  the  River  Meuse; there made a stand. Oh dear!  talk about shrapnel.    I think I may  say thousands of thsm;     they    got  what  for���������this is  where  the    Allemands   left   their     noble     Prussian  guards to cover    their    retirement.  Then it was Guards against Guards  So the whole Brigade fixed bayonets  and we charged, and not one of the  brave Kaiser's Guards would igive us  fight.    We  capture^,  six   Maxims,   1  Battery of Artillery, small guns and  a number of shells, and a van load of  maxim belts and a large number of  prisoners.    I must say the Prussian  Guards were the finest body of men  ever I have seen.- They were all over  six feet.    We fought them back until  we1 crossed  the River Aisne near a  village   called   Soupir.    This   is   the  same  position   the  Allemands   held,  when they claimed the victory   _a-  gainst the French in 1870, so I was  given   to   understand.    We   thought  we were going to rest at this place,  but no such luck, thick woods which  seemed miles long, bullets fiying like  hailstones, but we got to the coal at  last.    But we lost a large number  of men.    I lost seven of my section  of twelve.    Wo soon  dug ourselves  into the ground for the final time and  that  night  we  heard  them  coming  1000  yards away, but    our    orders  were to wait until they were about  500 yards.    It was pitch dark but we  could toll1 by the way they were advancing, in close formation. Well, we  gave them a very hearty welcome, a-  bout 400 rifles and three maxim guns  rapid fire; then they got within 100  yards of us, but it was no use them  trying ti get through as all the time  we had a few rounds left.

SAVED   THIRTEEN   LIVES  FROM DROWNING IN FHASKll  About four o'clock on Wednesday  morning Mr. Thomas Yeomans, of Ni-  comen, heard the call of some Indians, in distress.  On examination Mr. Yeomans saw  that the cries came from the Fraser  River. He took a boat and went out  He found a number clinging to a  boat. He took them to the bank of  the.river in safety. When' he was  finished he found he had saved thirteen Indians all told, from a watery  grave.  On investigating it was found that  some twenty-one . Indians, men, women and children were returning to j  their homes o3 Nicomen Island at  the early hour in a gasoline launch,  when they struck a snag, tearing the  side out Seven were drowned,, one  swam ashore and Mr. Yeomans saved  thirteen. .-  Three of the bodies havo been recovered.  Mr. Yeomans is to be highly commended for his noble deed, which is  full of courage and good management, and with certain risk to himself. The latter he probably thought |  not of. The V. C. has been awarded  to men for less brave acts.  LOWREY'S WESTERN FLOAT  Rupe  up-to-date  has  no   Billingsgate.  All quiet at Duck Creek this week  Silverton" now has    two    butcher  shops.  MATSQUI  COUNCIL MEETING.  (Continued from rage One)  endeavors to prevent the lamps being  broken.  notice that the Riverside wharf was  being used by certain parties as a  stable, and, asking that the municipal  ity would undertake to look after  this wharf at the municipal expense  and see that it was used for the purpose for which it was built. To the  request the council agreed and Wm.  lSlliott of Riverside was empowered  to take charge with full authority as  to its proper use.  From Glen Valley Land Co.-, stating that they had been disappointed  in not receiving payments expected  ami they were unable to send the  $500 as agreed on, but hoped to  make a substantial payment before  the end of the year. The clerk was  'instructed to reply that the work had  been done on the roads as agreed  and that bills were presented for payment, and it was hoped that they  would make every effort to meet  their obligations to the council.  From C. Gray, stating that he had!  read in the paper that    the    council  was  petitioning  the  B.   C.   E.   R.   to  move Rand station, and he thought  it was time for hi mto pretest against  any such action as he had given the  Railway   Company   concessions     and  the Glen Valley Land Company special inducements to have this station  where it s. The rumors of the moving  of the station was doing him a great,  deal of harm as was also the statement in  the paper that the  municipality could not build roads to the  station.    He had expended over $2,-  000  in  surveys and  in  constructing  roads and he thought it would be better for the municipality to make pass  able the roads leading to the station  and   quit   circulating   damaging   reports.    The reeve stated that he" had  interviewed the authorities of the B  C.   E.  R.   company  as to   the   possibility of securing a station at the Le-  Fjeuvro road but had not Iodised any  objection to Rand station.  From C. B.

O.  1 led them several miles before I  could get in touch with the lvstof  the Battalion. By the time we found  them it was quite dark and as they  were entrenched and wo wore not a-  ware where they were, we had to lay  down to a field, until it got, daylight  and a god thine we did; for we wore  going  straight  towards   one   of  our  Maxim guns.    However,  we  got  into  the line somehow.    After a  few  weeks we loft there and marched a  night and a  day to  a place "called  Meterin, stayed there for 7 days rest  or   rather   drill   which  we. cot   like  being in "barracks. We left these one  night about midnight, then the wet  trenches- began, up to our waists in'  mud and water 48 hours in at a time  and 48 hours out.    Just time to dry  our   clothes  on  as   we  stood  round  large fires. We kept on moving from  one, place to another, until we finally  jjot.into a trench, at a place  (I for:  get  the  name  now).   This  was   between  the canal  Eyser and the  La  Basse road, .a brick field, large kilns  all over the place and these kilns the  Allemands used for their snipers, and  as sure as one of our chaps shewed  himself he went west.    We lost  22  in  one  day and  could  not' stand  it  any  longer,  so three weeks ago we  were reinforced by the Irish Guards  and the artillery started shelling the  I crawled out after a time and got  back somehow, how I do not know,  caught the" ambulance and was sent  to   four   different   hospitals     before  anything  was   done,   that   was   four  days.     At last I reached _Boulougne, -  the Legrand Hotel which is now being used as a hospital, and I had every attention.    Then they found my  feet were frozen".    I knew I had not  much   feeling   in   them, for   several  weeks  but did not think they were  quite so bad, but I'am a lot better  now, only lost the nails but that does  not matter.    My knee is much better  ter, swelling  almost gone  but very  tender and .weak.    I hope to go to  a convalescent hospital soon. If I see  you I  can tell you  a lot about the  Prussian Guards.    They are composed'of nothing but boys now and if  my  dear  old   regiment meets them,  many more times there won't be any '  of them  left.    Out  of 1100 of  my  regiment that came out to MonVfirst  thero arc only 4 2 left.    You can understand now why I love the Regt.  [ belong to���������the Boys that never re-  tiro.     "    .    .
