MAPIJM ItlltOM COUNCIL  MCUSS   IMPORTANT   MATTERS  HOLD ANNUAL MEETING  (From the  Fruscr Valley Record)  Sergt. Charlie Stokes writes home  to his mother in a letter dated Dec.  3rd that he had at that time reached  Germany. He is one of the head  party who goes Lo arrange for the  coming of the Allies���������so they will  have some place to sleep. He is well  and says .the Germans; seem - quite  pleasant but.may.not be".as friendly  as they appear.  Pte. Dud Bryant, in writing home  from Qourcelles,Belgium,says in part  "When I wrote last we were out on  a twelve days' rest at Rock, a small  mining town, although it was deserted as the Huns had blown down the  pit head and machinery and took the  civil  population   back    with     them.  While here 1  was over  to hte  city  of Bouchecourt, two kilometers from  there.    There are no miles here, everything is a-kilometer (1094) yards.  The 57th Battalion was billeted there  and I met Roy Solloway and Harry  McTaggart, two Mission beys.' When  we. left  St.  Rock for the  front line  we passed through several small cities  and   later   arrived  at  Denain,  a  large city the size of New Westminster.    Hero the people that did not  go back with the Huns hid themselves in the cellars.    On reaching the  outskirts   our   band   struck   up   the  f,)       Marccllaise,  and we ' were soon followed by all the old men, women and  children, singing and waving French  flags,  the    women    running    along  pouring   out   hot  coffee,   fresh   milk  and beer as we passed along.      The  battalion  was  billeted in the centre  of the city in'a large college building  previously  used   by   the   Huns   as  a  hospital, and supplied with beds and  mattresses.    We then    marched    to  Valenciennes, this is about as large  as Vancouver,  with   large    factories  and coal mines.      We were billeted  here in a large    barracks    housing  7,000 men.    The 27th,    28th,    29th  rnd  31st Battalions were also  hove  and the Canadian    Field    Artillery  Tr.e second day 1 was here I went over to another part of the city whore  the 47th  Battalion was  billeted     to  Capt.   Jack  Quine,   but  he  had  I also went where    the    72nd.  :���������. billeted to see Archie Lampanl,  found when I got there that to  had got a nice "blight" in thD arm at  the Cam bra 1 h-ght and had been cent  to one of tho hospitals in England.  On cur rrrival at the city of La B"U-  vir-r everything was decorated    witn  the flags of the Allies and large signs  across the street. "Hur, hur, hurrah  Canada, unconquerable." "Honor our  Liberatore."   "Welcome  our  Allies."  We were cheered by the people who  lined the streets, women running after us with pitchers of beer and glasses, coffee and milk. They threw open  their  houses   to   us  and   that   night  there was a  dance in every house,  Crowda of women and girls marching  along the streets, arm in arm with  the goldiers, ten abreast,    with    all  kinds of accordians, all singing the  "Marsellaise"   and   we  all   had   tho  best beds in the houses, all feather  beds, the kind you lay in and sink  down a foot and a half, quite a treat  gee  left,  v-ei'i  but  for us.    It was pitiful to hear them  tell  of the hardghips they had endured'and.the treatment they had received from the Huns during the four  years occupation.      While' we were  on the march a sergeant of one of the  field batteries came running down the  road "with a paper which he gave to  our C. O. and he read it to us, it ran:  "Hostilities ceased.    No guns to be  fire'd after., 11 a. m."    When the news-  was "read "out"there was    a    lot    of  cheering and rejoicing.    We camped  at St. Syphouen for six days- During  our stay we had a route march to see  the  city  of     Mons, ' and     marched  through the principal streets,    it    is  much larger than Vancouver.      The  next day 1 was one of sixty that was  picked out of' the battalion for the  guard of honor for the reception at  Mons in honor of the arrival of King  Albert of Belgium.    Each Canadian  battalion and Imperial battalion had  a guard of honor-there.    We marched past the large platform where the  king took the salute, so I guess    1  will be in the movies again as there  were dozens moving picture camera  men all turning as we passed by amid  the cheers of the people. After our  six days' stay we left in the morning  and.   after  passing   through   several  small towns we arived at noon at the  city of Haines  St.  Pierrie. Here  we  got a great reception from the cheering people. The city officials gave the  officers a reception in the afternoon,  and the city band    was out in the  large square in front of the city hall.  We were all dancing on the square.  We  stopped  there  three  days.   The  people .went, crazy  over  us and  all  threw their    homes open.    Another  fellow and myself were billeted in a  large house belonging to a wholesale  wine merchant by the name of Leroy.  It was a handsome    home,    a large  swell place, and we had everything  we wanted. He could not do enough  for us. All his stock of liquors and  wines wero taken away by the Huns.  To give you an idea of the place to  enter the place you passed through  two large swinging doors, the same  with every room;  each window was  practically two  large    glass    doors  which opened out into small balcony.  The floors wero all inlaid with polished tile and finished off with hardwood  and heavy drapery/     He would not  let us go down to where our Hold kitchen was for our meals, but wo had  to stuy at his place and eat.      He  'had an elegant dining room and parlor,  a swell  grand  piano.    Off   the  kitchen thero was a-'largo garden all  in   glass.    It  was  not a  hot house,  a kind of summer garden or tea gar-  dons.    We slept in a large brass feather, bed with over hanging curtains  over it.    There was only his wife and  a little girl about ten or twelve years  old. They wanted us to stay a month  with them.    Our brass band gave a  concert every afternoon in front of  the city hall.      I sure would of liked  to stay there a month.      We left at  10:30 a. m. and arrived at Courcelles  We have been here a couple of days  already.    There are rumors in the air  that the Canadian corps are going into Germany.    Your daily papers back  there will know more about it than  we do.    I am writing this letter sit-  The Hatzic Fruitgrowers' Association held a meeting in the Hatzic  Hall on Tuesday evening with a good  attendance.  The following directors were appointed. W.' J. , Manson, Robert  Knight, J. G. Vosburgh, W. H- Noble  T. Catherwood, w; C. Bell and Geo.  Moody. ���������       I-  The question of .the increased express rates, which is in some cases  three times that of, last year, came up  for discussion and-a resolution of  protest was passed, a copy of which  is to be ent to all the Boards of Trade  on the prairie and B. C. by the secretary.  The secretary was instructed to  write to the Markets Commisisoner,  J. A. Grant asking"him to try and  hold a meeting at Hatzic on the 15th  at 2:30 p.m., and;if. he could not  do ,so on that date to arrange for a  date- suitable" to  him.  The price of Strawberries and of  Raspberries'was set to be not" less  than $4.25 per crate, -  \It  developed at. the meeting that  the .fruit growers on'the Island have  sold  their starawbe'mesvto different-  firms and that the rate is 16^.'  The meeing was one of the best  ever held by the asociation.  Last week a mistake occurred in  the advertisement of Mr. Whitchelo,  saying he was holding a "closing put  sale". It should have been a "Cleaning up sale". However he reports  business good and his store is full of  smiling customers all times of the  day. He has many bargains those  days. Be sure you take advantage  of them.  Read his adv. this week and watch  out for a bigger adv.  next week.

The thing that   amuses  me is to see all the people running  around the streets wearing those heavy wooden  Dutch  clogs.     When the  Huns first invaded this country they  took all the brass and copper fittings  they could lay their hands on.      A  lot of people hid theirs and now when  you pas every house all the windows  are full of polished brass even clown  to copper kettles showing that he did  not get it all. During our inarch from  town to town we are continually running into small bands of refugees of  men, women and children whom   tlie  Huns took back  with  litem.       They'  are  returning to  their homes,  soni2  with packs on their    backs,    others  with wheel barrows, others with cow:;  hitched  up to  their wagons.    There  is one continual stream of rul'ugooa.  You should hear Davcy Tindall,    the  Max Freed's Scotchman tear off the  French language." il.u.speaks it as well  as ho does the English.    The farming parts of tho country wc arc now  going through, the: Huns did not have  time to take back the chickens, sheep  and cattle of the farmers.

The last regular meeting of the  1918 elected Municipal Council -was  I'.ehlat Haney in the Municipal Hall  on   Saturday.  The first business was to Btraigh-  ujn out a tangle as to whom the council  meant to  donate the  $250  voted  for Uie Red fjross    Society    seeing  there were two auxiliaries in the municipality.    It appeared that tho request came from the Haney; aroriliary  and the grant was madeto'tKe other,  the Maple "Ridge auxiliary.    The be-  jwildered council had thought    they  i were  synonymous.    ' There- "was  no  I doubt, however, as to their Intention  i and that was to contribute to the Red  Cross drive in the whole municipality  and not to prefer one section to an-  oth.      They solved the difficulty by  dividing  the  infant,  a  la  Solomon,  ?125 to each.  A communication from the newly-,  consituted body, the Maple Ridge Returned Soldier' Settlement Organization, and a copy of the minutes of  the first meeting, was submitted and  discussed. The discussion concentrated upon the cement paved road  from New Westminster to .Mission  proposal.  Councillor Ewing said that in a  conversation with Reeve Catherwood  he learned that Mission would probably be strongly in favor of it and  join Maple Ridge in advancing' the  scheme.  Reeve Ansell pointed out that any  money bylaw to raise the suggested  20 to 30 per cent, contribution towards its cost through the municipal-.  ity:\vouldfhaveto be appro/red by the  ratepayers. To do t hat the council  must have a petition signed by 51  per cent, of the ratepayers for the  submission of the bylaw and a three-  fifths majority in favor to carry it.  Councillor Lilley���������I am satisfied  in my mind they,never will approve.  Councillor Sproule was not so  sure. As Coun. Dale had pointed out  the people had never been faced before with a situation- such as existed  at  present.  Councillor Ewing���������It is argued, I  know, that we may be taxed out of  existence, yet it should , be..remembered that unless the war had been  won, and It was won by the soldiers,  we would have no lands to tax. We  must be prepared to stand.a little  hardship.  Finally the Reeve, Couns. Ewing  and Dale were appointed to attend  any meeting called by the new organization to consider the scheme. ,  As a legacy to their' successors,  the council recommended that they  take up the matter of a drain at  the end and back of Callaghan street  and that a lot be purchased to put  Mr. Davie's house on in place of the  land washed away by municipal ditches.

The real estate operator and agent know that every  piece of property on their lists is a "bargain" for SOMEONE���������for someone who lives.here, or hereabouts or comes  from the prairies.   ���������  The landlord knows that his tenantless store or office,  or house, or apartment is exactly what SOMEBODY is  looking for���������somebody who MAY live actually in the  neighborhood.  The householder, with a furnished room to rent,  knows that to SOMEONE in town it would appeal as the  prettiest "oae-room home" possible to find.  The owner of a "used but useful" article of value, no  longer personally needed, knows that, to SOMEBODY in  town the chance to buy it at a reasonable cash price  would be welcome.  For all of these people, advertising in this newspaper affords the only practical way to find their  especial "somebodies"���������to go into the crowd and  pick out, unerringly, the "right people."    ;:    ::  C.

The children  gathered at about 5:30 and for an  hour enjoyed -themselves in playing  games. Perhapg the, most interesting part of the programme was when  the scholars, in classes, marched up  to the front and presented gifts for  tho Turner Institute of Vancouver.  Theso gifts consisted of packages o!  tea, coffoe, rice, raisins, rolled oats,  wheat Hakes,    corn    flakes,    canned  goods, butter, eggs, vegetables, etc.,  and no doubt the Rev. A. E. Roberts will find them very useful in hig  ministrations among the poor in connection with the Institute.  Santa Claus was present to the especial delight of the Cradle Roll and  Primary Departments, each member  of which was given a bag containing  candies, nuts and oranges. After refreshments had been served the older  scholars enjoyed themselves for an  hour by playing games.  Pte. E.
