OVERLAND  AGENCY AND  SERVICE  STATION  3*hBBMMIUIIIH������lll 'HIM"'  MATSQUI   COUNCIL  MEETS  The first business of the new council, meeting at the 'hall on Mt. Lsh-  man on Monday, was to consider an  {���������jjppftl from Peter Halverson Lo with  era v the last act of the old council.  This was relative to the old cnari.*-!r  Riving rights to tlie fanners of Matsqui for the laying of waterpipes along  r unicipal roads, a franchise given to  t.'if.i: as the Matscpa Waterw n V.**  Company. lt was at that time the  intention of the farmers to convey  spring water from the hills to Matsqui village. As nothing had been  done by this company, the 193 9  ' council decided to withdraw the coun  cil decided''to withdraw the franchise.  Before the bylaw was finally sealed  - Mr. Halveson, president of the Water  work Company, begged for a retention of the charter. The reason work  had not been prosecuted, he stated,  was the high cost of labor and the  higher cost of piping. Expecting a  fall in these charges before long, the  farmers were waiting a little longer.  Original estimates on the scheme  gave $10,000 as the total cost. Today  the same work would require an out  lay of $40,000. If only a 25 per  cent, reduction took place in a year's  time, that would mean a saving of  ? 10,000 to the settlers.  Tlie reeve contended that the charter was faulty in that it stipulated  ' no time limit. There was also nothing to prevent it being sold to outsiders who might exploit the people  He suggested the cancellation of this  and the granting of a new franchise  when the farmers wen"' ready to act  .   on it.  Mr. iT.uverson emphctically denied  tlio rumor lliat liiey Lad offered 'o  eell their rights. Tho tanners had  put in about !{.S00 for incorporation  fees, elections, etc, and it was not  fair to cut 'them our. by cancelling  this charter.  As a meeting of the Waterworks  Company is arranged foi next Saf.ur- j  day the council decided to defer acl-  tion until next meeting, when a delegation from tho farmer!, is invited to  meet them.  Matsqui figured again in the proceedings with a suggestion, from tho  nianpcor of the Bank of Commerce  at Mission City that their ��������� Matsqui  branch handle the municipal account  This at present is in the Bank of  Motrcal at Westminster. Several of  the councillors favored the change at������  hnine a saving in exchange on the  cheques. A resolution authorized  a special meeting to be held after  the Court of Revision on February  9, when Manager Mathewson will be  given an opportunity to state reasons  for the transfer. The Bank of Montreal has treated .the council with  much consideration in the opinion of  the reeve.  The claim of  the Royal  Bank  of  Canada   at   Abbotsford   for   this' account will bo a very strong one if the  proposal made by the reeve io consummated.   He  had   been  asked   by   the  Abbotsford Board of Trade to get the  f cling of the council on the admisiso.n  of Abbotsford into Matsqui municipality. The Abbotsford people, it was  said, are tired of paying taxes beyond  benefits received and of paying without having any say in the mariner in  wliich their taxes were expended.  They were too small for incorporation, and felt they would be better  served by absorption into the municipality  The council considered a plebiscite  would be required for -this .serious  step anyway, and as. the year was before them they had plenty of time  ���������Lo consider it, therefore no definite  action was taken.  The Canadian Natinnal. Railway  has notified- the council of an intent-  The aniuial  meeting of tho  board  of  trade was held   in tho  U.W.V.A.  rooms or.'

Trustees Pratt and Jackman with  Secretary Brice presented to the coun  cil the school estimates for 1920.  As these were $7000 higher than  1919, some explanation was needed.  Apparently the reasons were satisfactory as the council accepted them in  full.  The chief increase is in teachers'  salaries, which are $4 0 0 higher-thai-  last year, caused by three additions  to the staff, and sundry increases in  the salaries of present teachers.  The $17,000 total was made up by.  On Wed.

This is an old story, almost' threadbare.

We can. compare our  provincial debt or our dominion debt with that  of ten years ago and we find (here is a vast  difference between now and (hon. and it. was  not all spent on account of, the war cither.  This is a new country and money must be  spent to develop "the vasl resources until such  time as the country is properly developed and  can stand on its i'eet alone. U is business and  good business to hasten the day of full development. We'reap the benefit as we -go a ion gv  The  country  subscribed  Victory "Bonds     not  '��������� long ago to meet the demands that the country needed to carry it. along*. The people are  assuming part, of the debt, of the country.showing that they have faith in Canada's future.  At Ottawa during the session's; at Victoria  ��������� during the sessions- and also another seasons  of the year the lobbies are full of men who are  after something for some district in the province or the dominion. The successful lobbyist is the one who wins out and carries away  the plum for his district; and sometimes while  the other hungry fellow looks on with wide  open eyes and mouth, wondering how* it-was  done. The political plums are being picked  successfully almost every day, either for some  individual or some district in (he broad dominion. When the plums are all picked is the  only time to stop picking.  It has been said that if the Mission-Matsqui  bridge were built as the hoard of trade mono*:  calls for that there would be other districts  after the same thing. That might be true but  the .'early bird'carries off the worm' and tho  fellow with the original idea should certainly  be encouraged, especially when it benefits the  country in the way of development. Precedents are established every day in the year both  at Ottawa and at Victoria, and all other capitals throughout the Empire; and the man who  carries off a plum for his district is looked up  ' to by his'fellow man. A successful plum getter is surely a favorite with the "people.  Mackenzie & Mann captured an excellent  plum when they sold the C. N. R. to our dominion government; so did the Grand Trunk  people; and so did New Westminster, years  ago when the bridge was built across^the Fraser river. Dewdney has not captured many  ' plums, but it sure did pick a good one when  the bridge was built over the Pi-tt River. We  are not saying any of these things were wrong-  but we do say that none of them was done in  a clay or an hour; the proper necessity was  placed in the proper light before the giver ot  these perfect gifts.  'This district of the Fraser Valley might be  capturing a plum in the Misison-Matsqui  bridge, but there would be a great many people who would derive the benefit, and by the  Lime everybody had a bite cut of the pium  ibis d.'strict would only get but a small taste,  which goes io prove that the benefits of a  bridge at the point mentioned would very  greatly help in (he development of the Fraser  Valley.

There are a number of people who think  if the town were a little larger it.would be in  better'shape for incorporation ; while on the"  other hand Grand Forks claims" that its city  is too big to properly administer; and says  (hat 'there are people in the city who have  been paying taxes for twenty years who have  neither city water nor light.

P., met the  board on Monday evening to talk  Mission-Matsqui bridge.  There was a good attendance of  the members and some outsiders to  bear what were the prospects of hav-  ing a bridge across the Fraser at  this point. The enthusiasm got quite  a shock before the end of the meeting, but the majority have quite recovered again and will still boost for  come means of transportation icross  the Fraser besides the Mission-Matsqui ferry.  The people of this district are s-o  enthused over the matter still that if  there Is no signs of a bridge over i:e  Fraser by the time of another election conies around that they will ne  inclined to support the one who is  most enthusiastic over the securing  of the desired results���������the Mission-  Matsqui bridge.  The president called the meeting  to order and had the following motion road by the secretary:  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 Government for a separate  traffic bridge to be built across the  Fraser/River at the town'of-Mission  ( iiy, and would suggest that the cost  of this bridge-be borne by the Provincial Government, the Dominion Government and the people���������division of  co,st 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 lo he extended over a period of  years. '     . ���������'���������  Further that the bridge he buili  across the Fraser fo land at the foot  of ilorne 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 about due  south from  the Fraser to the Intei-  national Boundary line    at    Sumas,  Wash.  The neighboring municipalities of  Matsqui and Mission having heartily  endorsed the plan of a brdge at Mission City, we think the time is ripe  for the construction of this bridge.,  We humbly beg the Dominion and  Provincial Governments -to go into  this matter without further delay.  That a copy of this resolution be  sent to Mission and Matsqui councils  the Boards of Trade at New Westminster and Vancouver, the Good  Roads League, Vancouver and New  .Westminster, for endorsation; and  also to the Provincial and dominion  governments through our representatives.  Several of the members of the  board spoke to the motion. Mr. Alanson giving a number of reasons for  the Mission-Matsqui bridge. Among  these being the connecting up of the  two districts of Matsqui and Mission,  the alternate route via Blaine or" Sumas City to the coast cities of Vancouver, the better means of crossing  the river at this point to connect with  the proposed Hastings Highway on  the north side of the Fraser, which  desides giving Mission City and district a hard-surfaced road to the  coast is intended tov relieve the traf-  iic on Kingsway; tourists would thus  pass through a rich and fertile district giving them a better impression  'of the district and the productiveness  of the country, provide a shorter  route home via Sumas to tourists  back from the up-country trip, and  what was practically more Important  to the growth and development of  the'district would give two transcontinental railways instead of one for  t he shipping of the fruit, thus providing a wider range of market, and  would give the district competitive  freight rates. These and other things  wore pointed out by the speaker.  Mr. Roche pointed out tho advantages of another road for both districts, besides being a connecting link  to the two rich growing districts, a  more expeditious method of doing  business, without loss of time, which  was so esential to greater production.  Mr. Catherwood pointed out that it  would the more firmly connect    the  (Late Henderson'& Taylor)  CIVIL KNOINNHKS & SURVEYORS  Box 11 Abbotsford. B. C.

V-<. Stacey was then introduced to  the meeting '��������� and he immediately  launched out' asking where he could  get a strong/reason for having the  bridge built." He said, what reason  or reasons have I for broaching the  the government and asking that they  be requested to pay for two-thirds of  the cost of the bridge. He said, your  financial proposition would not appeal to the" "department as a good  financial proposition owing to the  ! fact that the Dominion Government  | are asked to "pay two-thirds and the  i Provincial Government one-thinrd  and get all the benefit, as it would  take ages to pay the one-third in  tolls, which-they advance.  He wanted 'to know why the Dominion Government should pay any  part of it. Unless a very strong case  was put up it would be establishing  a precedent that there would be no  end, to. He had in mind two other  points on the Fraser that will be putting in the same claim, and still other  points throughout the Dominion.  He then dwelt on the financial condition of the dominion, stating that  it was practically evident that they  would witness no special expenditures and giving, his reason therefor.  Last year the,department gave considerable for . dominion building for  the purpose of putting returned men  to work..  He wanted to know what answer  the provincial government had given  and was informed that the provincial  government saw the importance of  better connection between the north  and south side of the river.  Several in the me etlng asked some  questions while others gave suggestions. Ex-councillor Aish of Matsqui  pointed out the necessity of the  bridge, and humorously made sev-  al remarks, that put the audience into good humor.  Finally Mr. Stacey stated that he  would placet he request before the  government as requested, but seemed  to have no faith in good results.  He then suggested over the top of  the C. P. R. bridge or the planking  of the bridge so as to permit traffic.  A vote of thanks was extended to  Mr. Stacey for meeting the board and  others, and on rising he asked that  he thought the next step would be to  withdraw the motion.  The meeting then adjourned.
