SPECIAL PRIZES FOR  OUR   EXHIBITION  SILVER MEDAL CONTEST  The W. C. T. U. of Abbotsford will  hold their Sixth Silver Medal Contest in the Presbyterian church on  Monday, March 2. This promises to  be a most interesting affair as many  of the ladies of the town and district  are contesting as well as senior and  junior boys and girls. Four medals  will be presented and outside judges  have been secured. This is the last  .of the series of Silver Medal Contests and is to be followed at an early  date by a contest of the Silver Medal  winners for the Gold Medal.  The Steele, Briggs Seed Co.,' ��������� of  Toronto, well known throughout the  Dominion asthe producers of the finest classes of seeds , are one of the  first to forward a special prize to  'the Abbotsford-Sumas Agricultural  Association. In a..catalogue and  circular to Secretary-. Wiggins, they  say: "We have which-will prove a  real addition to your prize list, to interest exhibitors and make competition lively at your fair, at the same  time it'will keep our name before  growers and thus, be mutually beneficial."

In case of a tie, preference to be  given to first prizes.  NO  ROAD WORK  STARTED  YET.  The road formen, the men employed on the roads, and the general  public at large, are.wondering if the  'provincial government is in a state  of solvency. Although work has  been started on the north side of the  river, in Mr. Manson's constituency  there is no signs of activity on the  south side. So far the only 'work  done���������and a much needed one���������has  the scraping of the mud off Essen-  dene Avenue. Although, perhaps.it  is impossible to start any real work  on road construction, owing to the  dampness of the ground, it is glorious weather to build sidewalks, and  there is certainly some, needed in  this vicinity.. Everyone hopes our  member will get busy and start something. .���������'���������������������������:'.  Surely the Young Conservative Association (?) of Huntingdon would  recommend work being done now.  A regular' meeting of the Matsqui  Council was held in the exhibition  building of'the Agricultural and Horticultural Association -on Monday,  February,,:! 6th, with tiie reeve in the  chair and all the. members in attendance.

By motion the reeve and  Councillor Beaton were appointed a  committee to inspect these two roads  and report at next meeting.  -    The matter of the award of the  engineer appointed under the "Ditches and' Water Courses Act" in connection with'the drainage of Lot 12  Sec. 4, Tp.', 17, received lengthy discussion  on the part of  Mr.  Scouge  and the  council.    Having no  definite knowledge of the construction of  the   ditch   along   the   Skouge   road  north' to the main Matsqui Slough,  or as to the proportion of the cost  to  be  borne  by  the owners of the  adjoining  properties,     the     council  could not give Mr. Skouge any guarantee that this ditch would be pro  ceeded with in the near.future.    Mr.  Skouge informed the council that he  had no  other. resource  but to  proceed' with the appeal-which he had  already Tfiled with the clerk^.of the  council.  However, in connection with the  drainage of, the Skouge road, the  council authorized Councillor McCallum to call for tenders for deepening, widening and cribbing (where  necessary) the ditch on the east side  of this road from the south west corner of Lot 12 to the Matsqui-Mt-  Lehman road and Councillor Beaton  NEW MUNICIPAL LEGISLATION  FOR BRITISH  COLUMBIA  Full Text of tho New Bill Relating to  Local Government Board���������Present Rights and Powers Confirmed and Strengthened  The following is a full text of that  part of the new Municipal Act that  Attorney General Bow'ser brought  down a few days ago and so many  inquiries have been.made about.'.

When the new amendment to the School Act is made this session the  women property holders will again be placed on the voters' list. It was  all a "mistake" says'the Hon. Young. ' ' .  Public life is a strange respoet.or, of persons. Smetimes a man is up  and sometimes he is down, and there is nothing to prevent the rise and  fall in the public's estimation of a man. He may.not change, and'at  tho time of his downfall or set-back, he may be doing as much for those  whom he represents as he over did in his life, but notwithstanding he does  not reach the favor point, and like an old suit of clothes is cast to one side  for the time when he can be used to advantage.  nquirjp.

It is not likely that the Act as'it  appears at the present time willcver become law for various reasons.  Under the heading of 478(1) there seems to be loop there "that might  be the cause of much annoyance to the reeve of a municipality and his  councillors. Should it so happen that some person, a ratepayer objected  to the mode of assessment of the reeve and the councillors���������a very likely  thing���������and the council were accused of partiality in the mode of assessment, any ratepayer has the right to refer the matter to the Inspector of  municipalities for inquiry,  ed, no matter whet  investigation comes  ing compelling attendance of witnesses, etc., etc., which cannot all  be done for nothing. There are other cases also'where an inquiry,might  be asked for. There is no question that there is a certain amount of politics in municipal affairs, and you know that things are done for spite,  sometimes, perhaps and no poltical party is not always not guilty.  In' regard to the borrowing of money by municipalities it is most pro7  bably a very good thing to curtail the methods of borrowing,, as, in this  western country there is always the chance of men having control of affairs, whose sole object is the 'exploiting' pf the particular municipality  in which they happen to reside at the time. For immediate ��������� benefit of  advancing their own' property in price, certain improvements may be asked for and to. carry these out ask the municipality to shoulder a debt for  hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Referring to Part XXII. of the new act, it will be seen that sub-section  4 of 479, provides that when the ratepayers have authorized a loan and the'  municipal council has passed the by-law accordingly, the debentures, stocks,'  or treasury certificates issued under such by-law must be. submitted to the  Municipal Inspector, for his approval before they are offered for sale.  Sub-section 1 of the same section -provides that any money by-law passed by a municipality may also be submitted to the inspector for his approval  ' Now the powers of the inspecLor, and his powers appear to be unlimited,  in dealing with any such debentures or by-laws are designated in section  481 of Part XXII.' wherein it is provided that the-certificate-of approval  of Municipalities; *   ���������  (h) The inspection and, audit at  any time of the books, accounts, and  assets of any municipality,,and of. the  books and accounts of the Board of  School.

Generally, all such further  matters and things as in the' opinion  of the Lieutenant-Governor in Council.may be conducive to the standardization of and to the thorough and  systematic conduct of the affairs of  municipalities by the councils thereof  and by tho elected and appointed officials, ofiicers and servants thereof  including provisions to secure the  complete enforcement of this part of  this Act and of all regulations made  under this section, and the imposing  and collecting'of'pecuniary penalties  for any contravention of* the same;  and  (1)     Th  by the mi  Pork -.Chops    '. .'    18c  Mutton,.    18c to  2 0c  Leg of Mutton  18c  Sugar-cured, corn   pork   15c to  20c  Home-mad epork-sausage 15 cto 20c  Salted Pigs' Head, per lb   8c  of starting with too little capital  Pickled Pigs feet, per lb   8c.'

It is hinted that the inspector has no power whatever to revise, to change, or to obstruct in any way the powers of:the municipality  as to passing loan by-laws.    His duty is to protect the municipalities against any flaw in the text of the by-law or of the debentures or with respect  thereto, flaws in connection with which might affect the validity of the loan.  As a whole it is intended that the new act v/ill be of material benefit  to the municipalities, but it would be well for the reeves-and councils to  meet, and discuss-the various parts-of the Act and either endorse the Act  by resolution to the government, or to point out wherein, it would seriously interfere with the regular and smooth working of-"the'regular machinery  of tiie municipality.    If a council of experienced men should by resolution  point out defects, there is no doubt but that the Attorney-General'might be  influenced thereby.    As there are men in municipal affairs-in the"'Fraser  -"Valley who by experience should know more than the maker of the law  Don't sit idly by, gentlemen- if it is going to interfere with the good work  of the municipal machinery.
