MT.LEHMAN,       Feb.        1. ���������Jim  Merryfield, a well known member .of  probably   the   best  known   family  in  this district,  met with  a  tragic end  yesterday. He was -found lying on the  floor  of  the  barn,  having  evidently  talien from the lop of the hay piled  there.     He   had   sustained   extensive  injuries to his head, and was    lying  in a pool of blood when his brother;  Will,    and his    brother-in-law,    Mr.'  Cauwright,   discovered   him,     after  having   been   uneasy   for   some  time  at his  failure to be in' evidence ar-  Jound  the farm  house.  Dr.   Port was,  summoned    as    quickly as    possible  I but the'unfortunate man died ,a few  I hours after he wfis 'found.  Jim, his brother Will, Air. Merry-  field Senior and a son-in-law, Mr.'  Cartwright, were at the old'Merry-  field homo farm hero engaged in  building an addition .to the residence.  While talking, they hearu cries for  assistance, and proceeding to the  barn found deceased" lying on the  floor cf the barn with a pool of blood  around his head. It was immediately  apparent that the unfortunate man  ���������was badly injured���������he ' had pitched  from the top of the pile, which  rested upon slats well up towards  the roof, upon the head;" and had apparently been lying in that pvlight for  pome considerable time before he was  discovered.  If is stated that a mis-step would  account for the tragedy, especially  as he usually arose early, and in view  of the fact that his couch that night  was loose hay would not strike a  match   for  a   light.  Deceased was widely known, and  for some years conducted the Mt.  Lehman store prior to its being taken  over by* Mr.-Morrison. ���������     .     ".'.*���������..  Haney become    passible.

L: Radicalism that  runs to any sort of experiment in  unproved theories has always been  popular with a certain, class of our  citizens; but radicalism iu the direction of better business methods  is greeted by the. same class with  shrieks of protestations and alarm.  There are those among us who  believe in ' public ownership of  everything, in socialism, communism, and every extraordinary and  extreme scheme of governmental and  social upset; but when a straightforward and orderly plan is proposed  for the correction of obvious defects in the present system, they re-  ��������� fuse, in prejudice or plain obstinacy  to exercise their common sense, if  any they have.

Air entertaining programme for the  benefit of the Visitors is being arrang  ed by the Vancouver Board of Trade  and many important matters affecting  provincial trade will be taken up.  The large number of ��������� re-organization ���������' meetings recently held  throught the province by beards of  ���������trade is evidence of the enthusiasm  existing over the approaching "conference. Chilliwack,' iMisison, Port  Coquitlam and Port Moody are only  a few of the towns who have undertaken membership campaigns of  late and havo decided to reorganize  'for more active work. They' will all  have delegates' at the convention..  It is pointed out' that boards cf  trade in smaller communities in the  old days were regarded as something  in the nature of debating societies  but that, now there is a strong desire  on the part of men serving on such  organizations to work for the progressive development of the province.  The" Associated Hoards of Trade are  in no small way responsible, for tin':;  development of civic service. Uitring  the last, year the association has  assisted very materially in tho re-organization of its membership. And it  points with pride fo the f:u:t that for  the first time in the history of the  province tlie coining e.onvoiuon will  be .IQOr.por cent. IX C. An assurance  has come from the' president of the  Island Hoards of Trade that, his organization will he fully represented  und it is' certain thai, the Kootenay  and Windermere districts will have,  good-sized delegations oh hand. Delegates from the Okanagan and Central British 'Columbia and from the  Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland will also he numerous.  During the excursion of the members of the Vancouver Board of  Trade to the Peace River last October  the business men and farmers of the  various sections visited brought very  forcibly to their attention the great-  need of railway communications to  that country. As each community  had,some railroad scheme fo offer, it  was thought advisable to extend them  all an invitation to have representatives here for tlie convention. And  as a result of these invitations there  will be delegates from the Peace River,' Grand Prairie, and Spirit River  Boards of Trade in Alberta. A thorough discussion of the,questions of  better railway facilities to such districts is being allowed for on the a-  gonda.   ���������  The inaugural address reviewing  the work accomplished during the  past" year will he delivered by Mr.  Chris Spencer, president. Luncheons  will bo tendered the delegates every  day. A banquet <will be given'under  the auspices of the manufacturers'  bureau of the Vancouver Board of  Trade on the evening of Thursday,  February 10; on Friday a. banquet  will be given the delegation by the  Board of Trade. It has also been  planned that if time permits a trip  aruund the city, to visit all the principal industrial plants will be arranged.  'NEW   LIQUOR  HILL   FOR    .  QUE55EC  OUTLINED  QUll'BIOC, Jan. 28.���������Premier Ta-  schereau outlined the proposed new  legislation in regard to the sale of  liquor'in the province of Quebec at  a caucus of government supporters  yesterday. He , announced that a  committee of three members would  be appointed by an order-in-council  to handle the liqu'or business. The  head office will be in Montreal.  - Mr. Taschcreau said liquor would  be sold at retail government , depots,  but only one bottle at a time, with  [certain provisions governing.' the  price. In the city of Montreal there  would be one depot for every 5 0,000  inhabitants, while in Quebec there  will be one for every 4 0,00 0.-    ,  In the depots, wine will be sold by  the bottle, and in hotels having more  ; than. 100 bedrooms, by the glass be-  jtween 6 a. m. and 9 p. m. Certain per-  | mits may be obtained for extended  'hours in the case of banquets.  .     MO HE PA VINO OF  11 Kill WAV  j.. Dr. King, mini iter of public works  Premier Oliver and local representatives of public bodies had a long  consultation in Vancouver on Friday  on the subject of continuation of  hard-facing  of    the     Pacific    .Migh-  I way. As the result,    if    is    probable  'that, as soon as the weather conditions permit, a start, will' be made  upon the paving of another stretch of  the Pacific-Highway from the Clover-  dale end. The scheme approved provides for commencing at the B. C. ID.  R. tracks in Cloverdale and working  ���������north along the highway towards the  present end of the, paving near the-  Green Tnmber. The matter of paving the road 'through Cloverdale  Township its. full width was gone into  and ��������� tentative arrangements outlined for the municipality and property owners to be directly benefited  bearing a proportionate share of the  cost of this necessary improvement.  It is felt that it would be a .great  mistake not to have the road, through  Cloverdale paved its full width, when  the plant for the 18-1't. strip is on  the job, and there Is little doubt but  J that' an   equitable   arrangement  will  ��������� be come to for the carrying out of  the paving of, the full width for. that  stretch.  ' lt also appears probable that the  government will assist in the solution of the drainage problem which  confronts Cloverdale's business section.

Although Lord  Shaughnessy is not a professional engineer, and  therefore   could   not   become  a regular  member-of the Institute, he was made an honorary  member,-.in view of his" distinguished career a.* the  head of the Canadian Pacif'.c Railway, in which position for many years he has been intimately connected  with  engineering, and probably employed ' more  engineers than any man in Canada,  f     For the presentation there was one of the most  TEAOl JEKS WANT MOKE  PAY  J^Lord  dist'-ngu'shod gnthc-rinTs or cng'necrs seen in Montreal in a lou*j fine.

Prolonged applause greeted the two new honorary members as President Walter J. Francis pinned  the golden badges on their-lapels, a note of pathos  being added by the fact that Sir John Kennedy  will never sec his, his eyesight having completely  failed   him   during   the  past  number  of years.  The applause was renewed when Lord Shaugh-  nessy rose to reply. The Chairman of the Canadian  Pacific said that although he could not claim tha  honor of being an engineer his many years->a3  President of the C. P. R. had brought him into  very   intimate   relations   with   that   profession.  "V have probably employed more engineers of  various kinds than any man in Canada" said Hi������  Lordship, "and I hsive always had the highest  respect for the members of the profession, and  never found them hrcck Iheir trust. In engineering mailers [ always rtlied entirely upon their  export advice, pnd tho Canadian Pacific was never  the loser for it.

Telford, or Clayburn. is  onxicus that the board shou'd undertake manual training in cenain  schools.' which he considers beneficial and necessary, and has sub-  mil ted for the attention of the  board, correspondence on the subject he has had with the Minister  of   Education. Mr.   H. Kyle,    or  ganizer of technical education, will  probably investigate tlie matter  1 Mr. C. O'D. Bell wrote, asking  tlie Board to consider his application for a sidewalk .over the swamp  at. Matsqui Prairie. It was considered that, the provision of- roads  and footpaths was the work of the  Council, and not within the province  of the Board. If was stated incidentally that there was a route along the  dyke top which would allow tlie children getting to and from school dry-  shod. " without materially increasing  the distance covered. The request will  be forwarded to the Matsqui Council.  Miss Agnes MoManus, of Ridge-  dale school, asked to be released from  her duties there by March 1st, as she  is fo he married soon after that date.  Miss r-'e'vlanus stated in her letter  Ilia* she had kept, a r-ijord o.' the  work fctsM ted and in it url. for lhe  convenience of her successor al lhe  school.  Dr. R. H. Port, m3dlc.il health  officer, wrole. intlmal in-j; that Prad-  ner school might bo re-oeencd on  Monday.   Jan.   21.  Mr. J. Paice was appointed iani-  lor for the Malsqui school, and given the care of the grownds adjoining the school and (he use of  (he house, his duties to commence  probably in March. There is difficulty in regard to finding other accommodation for the teacher, who  at present lives in the r,"hool  house, with her mother, and it was  stated that there is no other linur-^  will spare accommodation within  ciuite a distance of the school. Mr.  Paice will also look after tho cleaning of the Clayburn. Kic's'edale and  Glcnmore schools. The Linn of rhe  present janitor, Mr. A. ('. Adams,  will conclude with February.  Miss Kennedy was pppoint'-d as  teacher to the Glenmore soho-il at  a salary of $900.  The work on the Aberdeen school  addition is to be accepted as concluded, with the exception c>( a  small item for maintenance, and the  WHY HO A OS PAIL  The taxpayers' search in the past  year for an answer to this .question  has led to the. discovery that whatever may have ben done in the* past  to insure proper sub-grade, more  must lie done. There is no dcinying  the'fact that .short haul traffic is  changing over from (he railway  to the highway. Recently, the Ocean  Shore Railroad ' (a California"line)  filed .an application with the Interstate'.Commerce Commission for authority to quit business. The plea  made was that the 'motor truck has  seriously and adversely, affected our  freight revenues, and the general increase of the'use of the public'highway has affected also our passenger  revenues.' In trying to stem the rising tide of'highway traffic, short, line  railway stockholders in,this instance  has assessed themselves seven times  and then "gave'up theghost."  Whatever may be given as the immediate cause for short line railway  troubles, the underlying fact is that  the.community owned highways is be  coming a public utility.* with .the direct" result that the road is* being  loaded with new tonnage to a degree  unexpected by the public.  lt now appears, under the impact  of increasing tonnage, that providing  a rigid surface on the road is not  sufficient, that however .well that sur  face, may be. built,'-the--'tendency of  the road is toward - failure far too ���������  rapid to permit,.its .saving capacity  to earn its "way out before' reconstruction becomes necessary,; unless,  and this brings' us to-the peak development of 1920', due care is given  to the construction of the sub-grade.  " In addition to the work" under way  by the Federal Highway . Council  along" this line, attention is'; being  given to the" same subject by the  engineering division of .the, National  Research Council'. Out of these two  organized movements to. determine  right principles in sub-grade construction, there is promise for a long  step forward in the science of highway '   engineering   In ' the  ���������" future.  rOTATOES ARE DOWN IN PRICE  ' A marked decline'.in the prices of  potatoes was one of the features of  the trading on the Fraser. Valley  market at New Westminster on  Tuesday. Though there.was not much  change in the ' quotation per sack,  $1 50 being the lowest, price, ranging  up to $1.75'for Urn lots the price  dropped sharply to $20, and in some  cases even less, wtih $'"0 top quotation instead of $4 0.  A'big supply of live poultry saw a  -.light decline all round, with the de-  ���������.rcase perhaps most marked in heavy  birds.   Fggs   dropped   at, least   fivo  wills   wholesale,   with   tho .tendency  -ven weaker, closing transactions being done around 53 cents per dozen;  r,3 cents to 5 5 cents represented the  hulk of the transactions for the morn  ���������ng. Retail eggs'sold at GO cents to 65  cents per dozen. A  still greater variation was    evidenced in    butter, re-  rail prices for ��������� which ran from    65  ���������cits to 75 cents per pound.,'  Meai shared the general-downward  tendency, though lhe decline in prices  was most ApiriTrent . in pork. The  very best pork fetched no more (ban  -.2 cents per pound..with 17 eenls the  '���������op price for heavy. Veal realized last  week's price of 23 cents for prime  ���������[ualities. Beef ran from 8 cents to-10  cents, with 15 cents quoted for best  grades oT Alberta product.

'The sequel Is a  host of       American     visitors,    from  around   Huntingdon,   who   travel   to  Veddor   Mountain   and     neighboring  stations per the B. C. E.

These parties    arrive   .at the.  fishing  place   about   noon, and   fish  till  noon the next day,  thus  taking  advantage af the limit for two days  for one day's    actual    fishing.    One  tparty which travelled back to Huntingdon a day or two ago had 19 big  stcelheads, tlie total weight of whicn  was such  as  to  necessitate an  auto  to move it   across   the    line,    where  steelhead retail at a big price. It is  pointed out that but few licences are  allowed the Indians living      on the  Gifford reserve,  who  fish for    food  and  then only    provincial    licences,  which are    restricted as to    season,  ���������whilst for $5 non-residents get privileges which are often abused.

The enormous flocks of  ^duck earlier in-the season, and the  large number, of shot-crippled birds  ; left by hunters, is given as one reason for the prevalence of foxes.  ,Muskrat skins, which-a year ago  j-fetched up to $4 apiece are now selling for 4 0 cents apiece. ���������  I iNothing has been seen or heard of  | Mr. Anderson, the missing man.

Its maybe the  football boys coming' home with the  cup!'Yes it'is! They won as sure as  anything or they would not be cheering so. As the autos which bore the  boys lo and fro from Clayburn came  up"the main street'it became evident  something above the ordinary .had  happened, as usually, the Mission play  ers are a quiet bunch of boys, but the  cheering and the honking denoted  something. A small boy jumped out  ,of a car and' yelled "we won," then  the news spread wildly that the  i Mission boys were'the champions of  -; the Fraser Valley Football League  i and the beautiful Haddrell cup having defeated Clayburn eleven to the  |Lune of 4-2, on the hitter's home  \ground.  i'    Before this game only    one  ' separated  the two  teams and  for Clayburn would have    given    her  ��������� the   honors,-   but   Mission :\vas   equal  'to  the'occasion and upset the plans  ' of a well . prepared    celebration    in  .anticipation of victory  j'    lhe game-was.   one of those swift  ' ones which kept tho    five    hundred  on their toes most of the time. Clayburn opened the score a few seconds  after the  whistle   when  Farr  tallied  from      a    pass    from right       wing  The Clayburn rooters went wild and  .cries of "that's the way we're going  'to do it" were heard.    This    spurred  'our boys on and they soon ran in two  goals in    succession,    one    by    Bird  -'while J. Galliford got' the other one  ion the rebound from Jimmy Brown's  shot which severly tested the stability  ,of the goal post. Tho play  was oven  'during the rest of the period;  Clayburn being    aided by a stiff    breeze  but  failed  to  penetrate  our defense  which was working to perfection.  In the second half Clayburn was  off again to a good start and scored  ���������once more, but after that their case  was hopeless as Mission had the upper hand and registered two more  during the period; John Galliford  who was. upholding his position at  loft wing in grand style, getting both  of thorn." During this period the Mission forwards had their combination  down fo a science and this was largely responsible for Clayburn's downfall.  The game ended with Fan* and  *5;fl-.v;i of Clr.yburn making desperate oi'forcs to wipe out defeat hut all  to no avail, and the final whistle  the game and championship  ir.   the   hands  of  the   Mission  kilt!
