Bates, Editor and Proprietor  Member of the Canadian Weekly ��������� News-papers'    Association.  FRIDAY, JANUARY 7, 1921  Now that all municipalities are having their annual elections, we lino! people with various platforms  asking the public's support for office, and ol course  this paper cannot let the opportunity .pass without oi-  i'cring a few suggestions that sure would be winners  for a!freeves and councillors. The platform might be  enlarged on to suit the particular municipality.  ' 1. Good "roads:' in fact paved roads from all centres  with a crushed rock road to every man's,house from  the side or main road, as the case might be.  2. Taxes, municipal and school, not more than one  mil! on the dollar, and pay any old lime, when the  money has no other place lo be put.  3. Keep the municipalities credit up to par with all  the banks, no matter how much each reeve or councillor has lo pay out of his own pocket for roads and  schools.  4. Prevail upon Foster to have line weather for  April, May, June, July, August and September, at least.  5. Give the trustees just enough money so they cannot be extravagant, and if they overreach the limit,  have them pay it out of their own popkets.  6. Have the government enact a law that when.a  reeve'or councillor does not act to suit 9.0 per cent, of  the. people, have him resign.  J.. H..

" '       '  A Liberal paper in summing up the recent provincial elections said, "Mr. Bowser has reason to thank his  stars that he saved his own scalp and came out'as well  as he did.'

Yes, indeed, Mr. Bowser has no.thing to thank the Li-  herals for in' the way* of help in electing him or giving  him "all they-could spare".- Bowser is quite able to  take care of himself and has shown it by the fact that'  he has now served the city of Vancouver for seventeen  years and so'well has he done it that he is there lo serve  out the.length of the present parliament,/which in the  ordinary course of events would be twenty-one. or  twenty-two years���������a record that is not equalled by any  other Conservative or Liberal in the province���������and always in the same riding of Vancouver. There are just  enough voters in the city of Vancouver lo exercise their  ballot and show to the rest of. the province the legislative value of Mr. Bowser. Some prominent men when  seeking election jump from one riding to another, not  being able to be elected twice in the -same riding in  succession. Bowser has always been able to come  back to Vancouver and Vancouver has always said.go  represent us again.  Dr. O.R.'

They are out to educate the public along these lines and will start with the members of  parliament. All the members al Victoria will be asked  to visit the Island Highway beauty spots during the  coming session. No doubt if the boards of trade succeed other districts will be inclined to liy the same  scheme.  The people of Comox Valley are out to extend I heir  markets for tlie various products and are planning io  feed the industrial workers on the west coast of British Columbia.' The Valley is a beautiful o'ne and most  productive, but is not near any 'market. Victoria and  Nanaimo are not of much use to that district as they  have their own productive districts close at hand.  A rich district is not of much value unless there is  a productive market within reach. For this very reason the soldiers of Melville would have done much better had Ihey chosen a tract of land in the Fraser Valley  where there are two transcontinental railways to carry  the surplus produce to the prairie markets.  .

PLANTED   KTS  POTATOES  probably    will    add    much    to    the  wealth   of   Saskatchewan.     Side   by  eiue with the golden wheat the gen-  en sunflower will  blossom on every  farm, in days to come.   Mil 3 by si  with the granary big silos will loom  up on  they  stalk,  fine.

But   the   cattle,   figuratively and Ltcrr.Jl. .  tie coming into the barnyard, fn-rh  from eating   luscious   green   grass,  ���������will make a bee-line on the run for  sunflower ensilage.    They will eat it  in preference lo the most expensive  prepared winter foods���������bran and all  that sort of thins ���������and   give   more  milk, with a  higher butter-fat content, on sunflower ensilage.  Mr. E. 0. Thomas, of Lioydmin-  ster, cow testing supervisor for  karchewan for the Dairy and Cold  Storage branch of the Department of  Agriculture, ^Ottawa, writes: The  growing of sunflowers for ensilage  has been adopted by a grot number of Saskatchewan farrrers during the past summer. There has  been an abundant yield and the  number of silos in the province has  doubled since a year ago. At Lloyd-  minster, Asquith, Guernsey, North  Battford, and many other points  they, are in use. At Meota there  are two or more pit silos. In  Rostherri district they are common  among the dairymen supplying milk  in Saskatoon city.  "���������The feed produced is used wiLh  great success for the winter feeding  of both dairy beef and cattle. A  w/*!ter in the Saskatoon Star has  collected the following interesting  data in the course of investigation;;  in the province. -  "Russian Mammoth was the seed  generally used. It should be .sown  in rows "thirty inches apart, as early  in May as possible. Owing to the  late spring this year, sowing was delayed in moat cases until the -end  'of May, but by harvest time mar.y  fields were to be seen yellow with  sun flow ei-a   standing   ten   to   twelve  feet high. #  - ������������������The yield of sunflowers on tne ten  or twelve farms visit-?-..! varied fro.r.  eight to twenty per acre.  "Expt-risnce .ir.dicat?3 that for t.v  r-.vp0r.a of harvesting the -sun/lcwer  In   West   Vancouver     Mr.     David  Morgan   utilized   a   portion     of     his  Christmas holidays in planting    two  rows of potatoes in his home garden  for   next  season's   crop.     In   former  years he has found that the earliest  planted seed  giv ,<s  the   heaviest  return,   his  best crop  hitherto   having  been   from   a  planting  in   February.  He thinks that by planting at Clirist-  j mas time the seed will  have a  still  ;l;otter chance of becoming wcll-root-  cd before tho dry  weather sets  in:  end as the frosts at West Vancouver  ���������"���������re usualy not severe enough  to kill  ho solf set,3  or  "volunteers"   which  He in the ground ail the winter time,  he ls willine. to take a chance.    -  Miss Sophia Mitchell has relurncd  to Vancouver.  Establishing Farms ami Stations  When tho Borden government took  olfice it found only twelve Dominion  farms and stations. Of these the  Central Farm at Ottawa and the others at Nappan, Brandon, Indian  Head and Agassi?., had been organized in 1880 under the dispensation of  .Sir John Macdonald and Sir Jofm  Curling. During lhe fifteen years of  the Lauricr ministry down to 1911  five others were planted'and in that  election year two others were added,  for which no doubt, the credit belongs to the. Liberal regime-and Mr.  Fisher. This makes seven in fifteen  years. If there are new twenty-five  it would appear that dining the nine  years after 1911 thirteen worp established, or more Ihan in the whole  previous  history  of  Canada.

He is the. only member af the old council seeking  to go back again to the' municipal  board so far. Of course it is always  in the cards that members may reconsider their decisions not to run-'again  but Councillors Dale and Adam are  positive they will not seek re-election  Councillor Best wishes to make room  for a new man and Councillor Fulton  is contesting the reeveship.

This surviving vessel completed the journey  around the world, robbed many Spanish colonies, and on June 15, 1744,  returned to Portsmouth with the  largest booty of precious metals ever  taken from the Spaniards by a single  vessel. It was carried from. Portsmouth to London in 32 wagons, guarded by the surviving 13 9 officers and  seamen. The safe delivery of this  treasure made the commander into a  nobleman, Sir George Anson of national fame, and no questions were  asked about the 1700 people who had  perished in ' the adventure.  It would appear that the value of  a man's life in those days was of not  so much value as today.  Five New Trustees  Required in Mission  ���������   The election    for    school    trustee  should be an interesting    one    this  ! year.  |     The board of 1920 has exceeded its  estimates by some thousands of dollars,  and of course this will be explained at the meeting.      Much has  , been undertaken during the past year  and undoubtedly the members of the  : old   board  who  are  In  the  running  i'can stiow the electors that no extravagance has been indulged in in 1920.  That all the monies spent wero absolutely necessary.  Then there is the question of the  Dewdney School District and Hatzic  Island being, added to the Mission  school district, necessitating the  bringing of the Dewdney senior pupils to the school here. The question  of expense is likely to come up and  the benefits to the Dewdney district  and the Mission district ratepayers.  It will undoubtedly be'shown that  consolidation is an expensive experiment and if the ratepayers wish it  the. necessary taxes will have to be  levied to meet the payments. At the  present time it is reported that the  rate of taxation for the schools in  Dewdney is less than one mill while  that in Mission is about 5 mills, and  this year the board's estimates were  too low.

The  recount will take place before Judge  Brown of the County Court. It has  been granted on application of the  agent of John McKie, Conservative  candidate, the point of contention being that some 30 of the 50 rejected  ballots clearly indicated the intention  of the voters.  The ballots in question were rejected because of the fact that the  cross was placed immediately after  the name rather than in the white  square opposite the name. Of these  30 rejected ballots approximately 2 5  are for MciCio and the balance for  1.0. C. Henniger, the Liberal candidate, who now stands elected by only  nine of a majority.
