The (increase in wages and the increase in salaries means an ih.imsc  in  taxation   this  year.  The condition of the ditches along  the Vye road was brought to the attention of the council by Mr. Angus  CampbelLwho was instructed to work  with the government road foreman  for^tbe" effectual'draining of the high.  | way in that particular section.

The Royal Bank lias opened a  branch here and a representative of  the Abbotsford bank is here for two  days in the week���������Tuesday and  Thursday.  There is not much business now  oetween the Canadian and American  sides. Canadians are not buying in  Sumas, except odd. articles and by  the' time the duty is paid they pay  between GO and 70 per cent more  than on the Canadian side. The  Canadian dollar today is worth only  fifjtf in Sumas: 'tis said that a Canadian took an American dollar���������with  the big eagle on the back of it���������into  a store one day recently and he was  charged a discount of five per cent  because there was a dint in the side-  of the coin and one of the feathers  of the eagle was ruffled.

Bates, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,  FEBRUARY. 13, 1.920  Throttling the opposition at Victoria appears to be the idea of the  present, government, as it seems to be  wrong to ask too many questions.  th;. Hon.  Premier Oliver ought to  know.   For- years   while ' in   the   .opposition   John   Oliver   used   to,   they  say,   lie  aw a Ice  at   night,   wondering  what, question he would next ask the  government, and while not. a representative in  tho House had some on?,  else do  it  for him.    He  used  to   be  the joke of the province about asking  questions. If anything was not known  and some one Avanted to Iuioav it, it  'was  often   remarked,  'tell  John   OH-  ,ver and he will ask the government',  as Honest John had always nerve enough for anything.  Now it is quite different. John is  in power and there are some things  that should be kept dark and the  ���������Speaker has had to give a ruling so  as to  throttle off the inquisitive.

No one wants to be,unnecessarily brusque in manner  yet the use of-"Hello" in answering the telephone gives  that impression.. The better way is to tell the caller who  is talking.

But  thou shalt not disturb the peace of  the present government. Not yet, but  soon.  The big meeting held at Vancouver last week endorsed the motion of  th-s Mission City Board of Trade' re  the Mission-Matsqui bridge.. Surely  they did not consult Stacey or he  might have told them to do different.  ly.  No   doubt   the   endorsation   of   tin.  motion by the Associated Boards will  make the claim for the bridge much,  stronger.  The fciission board of trade at its  last meeting, on Monday evening, one  week after it had time to consider  Avhat our federal member had to say,  did not deem it wise to withdraw the  motion re the Mission-Matsqui bridge  Probably a better form of going a-  bout the matter could have been a-  dopted, as some Avise acres tell us,  but so long as the requirement is  made clear form should not count.  The bridge is required and the people are after it, not just for the sake  of asking for it, but because all Avell  thinking people see the requirement  for it.  The Mission and Matsqui Councils  have again endorsed the motion as  emphatically as before.  If we all stay Avith it the bridge is  sure lo come.  The new national party may not  ���������cut. much of a figure but it will tell  the present federal government just  what the public opinion is in regard  to its actions since the close of the  Avar. As a Avar time government it  undoubtedly is a fact that the Union  government did good work, but if all  be as it appears on the surface the  day for Unionism is gone.  Th ire is however no need for a  parly to-light-the'fanners' party, at  least not at present, as if they got  into full power at Ottawa it is very  doubtful if they could in any way  make things-much worse than at the  present time. Things need shaking  U]i and the cry is that it is time for  ti change.  As soon as the farmers party start  on the question of fr.?e trade it will  surely break up the party. The people of the country have not changed  much in fhisrespect since sicne 1911.  British. Columbia Avould not be in accord with the farmers' party in respect to the damission of free  fruit, therefore could not vote Avith  the farmers' part}'. British Columbia  would therefore be in the opposition.  Kenzie opined, that a man with the  notorious record of Cook should have  been given a position of trust-by the  government.    The  House  would,  he  was sure, aAvait an explanation from  the  attorney-general   Avith  interest.  After Cook's recent disappearance  from Vancouver with a Avad of public  money, Attorney-General Farris, in r  newspaper interview, intimated  tha1  Cook Avas already in the gpvernmen'  service when he (Mr. Farris) entered  the cabinet. This statement does not  'ally   with   his  answers   to  questions'  iut  last session  by Mr.  Bowser,- opposition leader, avIio sought information  concerning  Cook's  appointment  and the reasons therefore.    Then, Mr  Farris had replied. Cook Avas appointed to the position in June,  1918. In  other words, he Avas given the job of  cashier and the care of public funds  entrusted to his care for some months  after  Hon.   Mr.   Farris  assumed  the  direction  of  the  law  department of  the Crown, and,in a department coming under the jurisdiction of the latter.  Opposition members of the Legislature are going to find their inquisitorial privileges materially curtailed  this session.    Hardly had their first  questions   reached   the   order   paper  than Premier Oliver seized upon    a  technicality to prevent what he term-,  ed the "abuse of the privilege of the  question."    Mr, Bowser had^present-  ed a series of questions bearing upon  administrative affairs, notably a    request  for information  as  to salaries  paid under special acts and warrants  in   the   various   government  departments with details thereof, and also  data   concerning superannuation     of  civil servants by the present government  over a   period  of  three years.  The premier held that    the    proper  method for the opposition leader  ,to  folloAv was to ask for a return to be  brought doAvn, claiming the time required  to look  up  the records,  etc.,  would   be   so   groat   that   the   rules  of the House never contemplated that  information of that nature should be  supplied in answers by members    of  the government.     Mr.'Bowser pointed  to the previous experience of the  opposition -where  returns, asked   for  had been purposely delayed until the  last day of the session so that information asked for was'.not forthcoming thus preventing    the    opposition J  from eercising its    undoubted    right,  to follow its role of investigator    of i  the government's administration    of j  public affairs,  a right he strenuously upheld.

Etc.  to a Price  Mission City  Victoria, February 10,���������Prohibition promises to be the all-absorbing  topic at the present session of the  Legislature which completed its first  week's work on Saturday, a-week almost wholly devoted to consideration  of the Speech from the Throne, the  debate on the Address in reply being.- got well under way. The importance the liquor question is assuming in the minds of members is  indicated by the attention which the  government supporters are paying to  it in their speeches.  Tr'ue.the Speech from the Throne���������  one in which a legislative bill of fare  even more engaging than usual is offered���������made by passing reference to  the- subject, merely mentioning the  fact that amendments will be submitted ' further regulating the issuance  of doctors' prescriptions. But I his  admission that the government deems  is advisable to bow to the universal  demand for betterment in' existing  conditions consequent upon the well  nigh general violation of the law may  be said to be more or less political  camouflage. The fact is, and it is accentuated by the remarks of Liberal  speakers, the government is ready to  go.much further in tho matter of liquor regulation than the Speech^ from  the Throne would indicate. Undoubtedly the government supporters, in  their denunciation of the existing deplorable conditions and their bold declaration of that the time has arrived when the* problem of a bone-dry  province or, as opposed to that, the  sale of liquor under government control must be faced, are merely fooling" out for the government the sentiment of members of the House.

Cooper, Vancouver, a member  of the original committee of forty  prohibitionists which launched the  prohibiton campaign in this province  and saw it through to a finish, and  Hugh Stuart, Comox. all hidebound  supporters of the present Liberal administration,    were    unanimous,    in  GENUINE ASPIRIN  Only Tablets with "Bayer Cross'  are Aspirin���������No others!

Dr. .Su'.neriand, speaking ;-.s a  physician, (-eel a red the act as it now  stands is a mi'.e to thrj tnedicil profession, l!i:U ihe doctors want .inr.e  cf it and that he did not blame'them  for taking advantage of the opportunity thrown' their way .to make  all the money they could through the  issuanceof prescriptions. Mr. Cowper  while emphasizing his personal belief  in and-practice of, prohibition, confessed that after what he has seen cf  the operation of the present act and  resultant' conditions, he was fully  prepared to sink his personal predilections and in the public interest  spport government control whereun-���������  der liquor could be purchased by the '  bottle for use in the home.  Mr. Cowper, erstwhile critic of the  former encumbent in the ofllce of attorney-general���������M. A. Macdonald���������  whose retirement from cabinet rank  was due to Cowper's charges later  substantiated by the Mud ing of a royal commission, found no place in his  denunciation of the present liquor  conditions for criticism of I lie present chief law ofliccr of the crown. Indeed Mr. 'Cowper pinned a medal upon the chest of At.torney-(!eiieral Harris by asserting that il had alway*,  been the earnest desire of the latter  to enforce the Prohibition Act l.o Ihe  limit. Opposition speakers ware unkind enough to suggest that Mr. Cowper, having for the past three years  been'more or less non persona'grata  witii the administration is now seeking on bended knees, to creep back  into the parly fold hoping his form-ar  activities as a member of the Vancouver "purity squad" in socking the  clean out of the Augean .stables of  the Liberal party there, might no  overlooked.  Mrs. Ralph Smith, wlio is wont to  prate-of her complete political independence the while she consistently  supports tlie government, did not as  was expected of her, take any decided  stand upon the prohibition issue. As  woman's representative in the House  it was expected she would have something to say of present conditions  from the woman's view-point on the  alternative suggested by previous  speakers. She contented herself \vi!h  stating that in the event of another  referendum she was sure the pcopb  would make tiie right decision but  she offered no opinion of her own as  to just  what that decision should  be  An echo of the famous "plugging"  scandal was heard in (lie LcgisUitue  on Friday when Capt. l<".
