G. Barber our provincial  constable is to be removed to Bella  Coola instead of to .'Lillooet, and ex-  . peefs to leave sometime this month.  The law-abiding citizens of Mission  City are indignant that Mr. Barber  should be removed from Vlission City  for ihe reasons stated by the government, as he hay been considered by  all as a capable constable and: besides a most excellent citizen. He  ha displayed many good points in  his work while having the care of administering police duties for this  disLrict. One of these has been the  excellent methods he has adopted to  guide people from making trouble for  themselves and he was never out  looking for trouble.  A largely signed petition asking  that ho be not removed, letters from  prominent citizens, from the Board of  Trade, a special meeting by the Mission council  (a very unusual thing)  ANN UAL MlSETrXG OF THK  MISSION OITY TELEPHONE CO.  (From Fraser "Valley Record)  The annual meeting of the Mission  City Telephone Company .was held in  the council chambers on Monday last  with a good attendance. The annual  business of the company was transacted.  The annual statement of the company was read by the secretary which  showed that Phone rentals for the-  year had. amounted to $2,2S4.26.and  capital subscribed during the year a-  mounted to $1,840.00. The- assets  showed that a deficit, largely by the  ice storm of January 1918 of $10,-  -101.G4 was the difficlty of the company. $2,529.05 had been spent in  reconstruction during the year and  that there were "136 phones now in  use. There wrere 22 7 before the ice  storm.  The ice storm had almost completely destroyed the system, but during  the year the line had been rebuilt to  IHatzic, throughout Mission City town  have all with the exception of the i site.across to Matsqui and Gifford.also  petition, brought back answers, . all! to Clayburn. At the present time the  forming a most remarkable amount line was being rushed through to  oi correspondence,   also    remarkable I Silverdale,  and when that was com  Teaching the. "Goose Step"  Fort George's member amused his  hearers as he told of the apparent  changed attitude of erstwhile independent Liberals, who today are disciplined to the point of nonentities or.  "rubber stamps". Rumor had it that  the Premier was adopting Prussian  methods with his followers and that  by next year he would be teaching  them to "goose step". It loked as  if an early election were possible.and  this policy of reticence was adopted  to obviate inconvenient questions  and remove the appearance of internal strie and scandal.  foi the inconsistency of it.' It  would make good amusement for the  members of the local legislature after  some strenuous session. It. is believed that the soldier party and the opposition members, to say nothing a-  bout the lukc-warm members of the  government party would all bo highly amused with the methods adopted  to get rid of C. (.!. Uarber> in Mission  City. It is just another example of  how Hon. Honest John Oliver, the representative for Dewdney an ' Premier of this province, has been crucifying his .rieiuis ever since they conferred upon him the honor of representing ua at Victoria.  The only trouble with Constable  'Barber, as most Mission City people  see it is that he would not "goose-  step" to the Prussian methods of a  number ti  appointees  (he Oliver  force.     L'ut if he  pleted the Dowdney and Nlcomen line  would be rebuilt, after which it was  , the intention to extend the phone system on Matsqui Prairie.  Those present thought that the out  look for tiie company was good as  there was a field open.  The officers weret .hen .elected, as  follows:  J. A. Catherwood, Wm.

THE BUILDINGS ARE CROWDED  Crowded into one of the largest  buildings in the city Cnada's Great  war exhibit th,e most remarkable collection of war trophies and relics that  has been assombled since the war, Is  now in full swing at Vancouver, it is  being shown under the auspices of  the Domiuion,.Govenunont and after'  it leaves British Columbia will be  taken to Ottawa there to be broken  up for distrubution to all parts of the  Dominion.  Thousands of persons are attending  the show daily, including many from  all parts of the province. All agree  that the display measures up to expectations. It has as much interest  for children as adults and Vancouver  has arranged that every school child  in the city may see it. Nanaimo is  intereted and is running two special  excursions so that all who wish may  have ,the opportunity of attending.  The five carloads of murderous device which were captured by the Canadians in many a hard-fought battle  and at such terrible sacrilces tell  more than the spoken or written  word can of.the heroism of the Canadians and the odds against which  they fought so gallantly.  The hundreds of photographs  shown, many of them lifesize. are of  peculiar interest to British Columbians in that many well-known officers  and men of British Columbia regiments have been "snapped" in tho  heat of action on the battlelelds.  The entire display gives a very vivid impression of what warfare on  the Western Front was and what the  men from Canada accomplished. The  exhibit will be open until March ���������'.  inclusive.  Miss Marian Philps of White Rock  was the- guest oi'  the Misses  Steede  last week end.  The railway commisison meets in  Vancouver on Friday next and the  Misison board of trade and the Mis-!  sion auto club will attend in regard to  tiie Home avenue crossing which is  again before the board. Messrs A.  A Lane and If. Mecch.will represent  the former and Mr. J. A. Hargitt the  latter.  During the past Tew days a man  haa been placed at the l-Iornc avenue  creasing, presumably with tho idea of  checking rlie traffic to and fro. Why  is this done at the present time?  Ah February is about the quietest  br.Hiness. month'in a fruit district it  doer, seem not quite an honest way  to judge the traffic. During the busy  months of the year there will be at  least six  to one during this  month.  II. is hoped that this crossing will  be ordered to be better looked after  in the future. With a train across  the track and the ferry across the river waiting and leaving on schedule  time one is very very often delayed  untii the next ferry forty minutes later. If he is trying to catch the B.  C. E. II. train at a certain time the  chances of delay are very much a-  gainst a traveller.  Boys' Suit Sale. FEBRUARY 2'.4111 to 2 8th.
