W:  THE ABBOTSFORD POST.  Published Every Friday by The Post Publishing Company  A weekly Journal devoted to the interests of Abbotsford and district  Adverlisiins  rates  made  known  on  application  Our, Shibboleth���������Neither  for   nor   agin'   the 'Government -  . Pines are believed to live the longest of all trees, some having attained  more than 700 years.  FRIDAY,  FEBRUARY 12,  15115  In reading the meeting of the Sumas council published elsewhere in this paper all we  believe will come to the conclusion that the  council came to a wise decision to not take  immediate steps to reduce the taxes, thus the  wages of the men who work on the roads, and  probably lower the standard of the roads of  Sumas municipality. ^During the. past five  years the roads of the municipality have all  improved to a standard that makes them rank  ,   with the roads in an older province.  After a continuous residence in the West  of nearly a quarter of a-century, the editor  of this paper visited Ontario last summer, and  of course drove over some of the roads of various counties in the western Ontario peninsula���������roads driven over in boyhood and later  and saw the condition of the,roads in,, June  anclJulyi two of the best months of the year  for the roads to be in good shape. Since the  visit the editor is proud ,to say that in his  ' humble opinion, and he thinks he knows a  ' well built piece of road when he sees it, the  roads in Sumas municipality do not take se-  ond place to those in Western Ontario. After  -travelling over miles of main roads, there  were none to compare with the main artery  of Sumas���������the Yale road; and the side roads  are every bit as good as the side roads in the  older settled country.  The Post is proud of the roads of the Fraser  Valley,, including the roads of Sumas Municipality.    These are indeed hard times for the  : raising of taxes for road building, but it will  soon be over we all rhope, keeping this in  mind then let us not fail to do our part in  maintaining the.present high standard of the  roads of our Valley. A reduction in taxes is  . a sure foreruner of less work /being done on  the roads, and lower' wages, all are human,  will probably mean, not "such./a; good ;day's  work. As they say let us "See; this thing  through" and carry on our share, of the  "Business as Usual"  In his eondemnation^of^Rrfssia'as^a land of tryranny  says the Victoria Colonist. -Mr.' Place,  M.  P. P., for  Nanairao, undoubtdly expressed what is in the minds  of a great many people, and yet we venture to say  that he and other Socialists would find things more  to their liking in Russia than in any other part of the  world, provided they were content to leave out of  their consideration;.-what we may for ^convenience call  the field of-.higher- politics. Perhaps we ought to  define what we mean by this. The national form of.  government ���������in Russia is autocratic. It is an autocracy  ���������which determines the foreign policy of the country  and the larger question of domesic "administration.  Autocratic power was vested in the Czar by the nobles  at a time when the country was in a state of transition and weakened by. internal disorders. It may be  of interest .to state that until the time of Peter the  Great the Crown of the' Czar passed from one of its  wearers to anther only by pupular vote, as that term  w.as .at that time understood in' Russia. Even Peer  did not claim that the crown passed by right of descent  but only that a Czar had authority to name his successor. At the time Western Europe, was endeavoring  to shake itself clear of feudalism. Russia, in part at  least, enjoyed democratic institutions. The republic  of Novgorod was of unknown antiquity; the princes  of Keiv, Sousdal, Moscow and other jurisdictions, although invariably chosen from the princely family of  the Varangians, were elected. The necessity of driving out the Mongols compelled the several princes  to consolidate their interests and led to the ascendency of one of them, andby imperceptible degrees his  power increased until it was nominally supreme, when  by the request of his co-rulers the Prince of Muscovy  proclaimed himself Czar. The Russian aristocracy is  descended for tiie most part from the ancient families  and there is no-doubt that they look upon themselves  as far apart from the;;merchant, artisan and peasant  classes, and this is and always has been recognized by  the mass of the Russian people since the days of  Rurik and his'-brothers, which was more than a thousand years ago. The system of aristocratic government prevailing in Russia has unquestionably been oppressive in many cases, and terrible wrongs have been  perpetrated under it. But thse things do not perceptibly touch '.he lives of the great majority of Russia's millions.  The rank and file of the people of this great empire  live, under conditions that can be generally described  as communal. In no other part of the world do  guilds flourish as in Russia.    In no other part is the  ,The Keil Canal is 61 miles long���������-  a little longer than the Panama Canal. It originally cost ������7,500,000,  but was recently recoustructed at a  cost .of ������11,000,000.  communal occupancy of land more. general'.' Millions  of people there live under conditions which the advocates of the system of single,tax regard as ideal, for  no man is allowed to occupy, more land than he requires to support himself and,his family. Of these  land owners, tiie merchant and artisans, only a very  few concern themselves in any degree whatever with  the political life of the nation. The rest are content  to live under conditions, ..which Socialists, at least,,  would regard, as nearly ideal, and which are perhaps  as nearly so as could be looked for in a nation, where  education is not general. They are content to cultivate the/ soil' or. carry on their, business, raise large  families and live devoutly and .simply. Their attitude  to other things is expressed in tke saying. "God is in  Heaven and the Czar is far away.'.'  The Cossacks are not included in the above observations. The very essence of their existence is freedom. Tlieir conception of what freedom ought to secure for them may not be our conception, butthey live  their own lives as we live ours.. Apparently they are  more content with theirs than we.are with ours. A  Cossack would hardly understand what Mr. Place was  driving at when he spoke of Russia as a land of tyranny. '���������  We have mentioned the lack of general education in  Russia; but it is not to be understood that this is  because of any desire on the part of the Czar to keep  the people iii ignorance. No rulers in the world have  ; done anything like as much to encourage education as  have the Czars during the past three centuries. But  we must remember that the Russian'renaisence is only  two centuries old. It was only in the reign of. Peter  the Great that the empire emerged from the status  of an Orienal nation and set its feet upon the paths of  Occidental civilization. We must also remember that  for the greater part of this period the mass of the  rural population were serfs. It was in 1861 that the  Czar abolished serfdom, indemnified the landed pro-,  prietors and declared each village community to be  the owner of its land. . This measure had been in  contemplation for some time before it was proclaimed  Education is making progress, slow of course, for the  habits and' ideas of millions cannot be changed in a  generation:  In her communal system, in (the operations of her  guilds, in the wonderful development of her literature  in her effort to restore by way of, the Duma the powers,  of  the  ancient  democracy, ,in .the  simplicity  of, her  rural  life   and   in   her .boundless   resources,": Russia  possesses  the  basi  upqn:\whichT;a  wonderful  superstructure can be reared... We must not let ourselves  be  misled as .to the  character of  a nation, because  such monsters of cruelty sis Ivan the'Terrible, and the  Empress Catherine, have ruled the" land. We must not  judge of Russia' by the tyrannies practiced by an aris-  tocracy fearful for its own privileges. We must'hot "be  in haste to conclude that the terrors of Siberian exile  are   so  much  worse   than, imprisonment  in  Western  Europe was before John Howard, in 1773, began his  great work  for prison reform..     As citizens  of the  world, and we all claim to be that, and especially do  our  Socialist friends claim it, we ought to learn to  look upon Russia as she really, is, as a country    of  immeasurable possibilities, which is building her future   upon  a-solid  foundation,  consisting  of  a  profound  faith in  religion  and,  in her  social life,  the  basic principles of democracy.   ,  The Cossacks, whose name has gone abroad as signifying all that is cruel;-only ask one question of a"  man who seeks to join their ranks. . It is: "Do you be  lieve in Christ?" If the answer is in the affirmative he  is told to pitch his tent or occupy any house, that may  be vacant. The Cossacks are terrible 'in battle, but one  of their cardinal principles is respect for.women and  children. The \ideas of most of us concerning them  have been based upon the reports given out about  them by those whom they have overcome in battle.  The remainder of the Russian people look to the Czar  as .their spiritual head, ana a e devout to a degree  that would be unthinkable in a Canadian community.  They seem likely to emerge from this war fitted for a  career of progress in which spiritual thoughts, will  play a prominent part.���������Ex.-   <���������  (From Fraser Valley Record)  The movement set on foot on Saturday last  by the action of the Mission Council on the  letter of Reeve Lougheed of Maple Ridge  should be the beginning of great development  on the north banks of the Fraser River, resulting in better trasportation facilities, and the  greatest impetus in the "Back to the Land"  movement in the Fraser Valley yet received  by that movement in any part of the province.  Now after the land speculation jhas spent its  energy; and as the demand will be great in  the coming years for food stuffs now is the  time to get and keep the settlers on the land.  GERMAN GENERAL. ORDERS  Until further notice the following-  scale will, be in force:.  For dropping a bomb on a hospital, one Iron Cross.  For dropping a bomb oh a church,  two Iron Crosses.  For dropping a bomb on a cathedral,  ten   Iron  Crosses.  This'is for the encouragement of  culture:  The old scale of one Iron Cross  for killing a child, two forrkilling a-  woman and live for killing a Red  Cross  nurse will  still- be in  force.  Commanders are urged to levy the  utmost fine on captured towns which  the places can stand. The,' fatherland needs the money. ,,  Use the white -flag whenever possible for the purpose of luring on  detachments of the enemy to places  convenient for slaughtering.

J, HENDERSON & SONS  PROPRIETORS  A FEW INTERESTING FACTS  ABOUT   K ATS IE   INDIANS  Chief Joe Isaacs, Hand are a 'Progressive Hunch Who Appreciate  The Value of Education. An Indian Concert at the Hammond Reserve.  Kataie' Indians  are  of  the  Salish  tribe which with the tribe known, as  the'  Shuswaps,   have  long  inhabited  the Fraser Valley.    At Hammond the  Katsie band occupy a reservation of  over tiiree hundred acres.1   There arc  sixteen families/' In tho fishing season   they fish  for the  Fraser-River  canneries, in the winter their homes,  gardens, cattle and horses claim their  earnest attention. Their chief is well  known.    Chief Joe Isaacs his name,  he  is  an   Indian'of  the  oldest  and  best type.    ln; the words of. one at  the reservation'he Is  "as wise as a  serpent     and   ''gentle   as   a   dove"  Through his uplifting inlluences the  band is wisely "directed along    progressive channels.    At Katsios, education' is" aiv important' feature of the  daily life.,Thanks" largely to the good  offices of Indian Agent Peter Byrne,  of New 'Westminster,' a school    for  Indians   was   started- in   September  last when twenty pupils were enrolled  The attendance, usually the greatest  stumbling 'block' to the education of  the   Indian  children,  has  been  very  satisfactory;. ���������. .Considerable progress  has been.'made,.under the able tuition  of Principal J? J.-Murphy so encouraging, in  fact-it  is hoped  that  the  Dominion.government.will soon build  a ' permanent, school in . place of the  temporary : one .now in: use.       Such  good progress have some of the pupils  made it is also- probable that in the  early future they will be seen as candidates at the .local High School, entrance examinations. ,  In' an interesting newsy letter to  tiie .Review,.  Principal    Murphy informs how the/'Epipany" or "Three  Kings  Day."  was. celebrated -   a  few  weeks ago with  a concert.    A welcome visitor on.the occasion was the  .Rev. Fr. "Cherous, 0.  M. I.' missionary  priest to Indians of the Fraser  Valley, who is a guide, philosopher  and friend to,fthe local Indians.    Items" rendered'at this-'concert included  a "masterly duet, guitar, and violin, by  Messrs ;F.- Johnson and W: August.  Tlien"';fdl'lbw6d:ar,^weet chorus by-little ;girls",' entitled<; "'Beautiful ��������� .Angels  Are GuidWg;|Me" After''Master" Vin-  cent'JAu.gust' had''finished  reciting  "Lead'Mindly 'Light''' 'the  applause  .'was .so .intense there was a concerted 'chorus Jb������y the "-large" number'"of  canines; which, unaccustomed to.such  talented music-," had    assembled    m  force outside the hall, "Probably..the  prettiest item,   on',the    programme"'  writes Mr.  Murphy,  "was a figurative and display march to music by ten  their raven locks being encircled with  silver coronet's.    Mr. -Murphy, who is  gifted with a: sly and cunning vein  of humor, next, tells  how . "Joboys"  August, a toddler of three years, who  acted.a small part," nearly fell onto  the footlights when he was    gazing  upwards  in  silent  communion  with  ���������some"of the Indian juveniles who, intent.on ".not-missing any of. the show  were perched' on- Ui"e> rafters of the,  roof.   :-Th9 ���������minstrel" troupe did  fine  work; Simon.-Pierre" proving a  star  artiste,'in the-.'laughter    producing  line;'    Much-of the credit for the en-  terinment is-due to Mr. W. August  who-organized it to provide a happy  evening  for .the  band.   Others   will  likely follow;  Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Trethe-  wey are enjoying their trip  which'.is proving to be very help  ful to Mr^ Trethewey. They  are now.at. Waikaikai Beach,  Hawaii.  Stanley Parton had the misfortune, to s/prain his arm a few  days ago. ',  Women with the most cheek do the  least blushing.  It's generally better to be a small  success than a big failure.  Give some men a pointer and thoy  will kick because it isn't a setter.  The henpecked husband should rejoice that he isn't a Mormon.  Some of us take desperate chances  because we have nothing to lose.  Don't eat soup with a fork if you  are hungry.  muammBOMS^SMSSS^m^i^SiiSm;  ���������ZXm, I-���*-     .11.    [.��
