SCHOOL   ESTIMATES  .SCOTCH CONCERT  HUNTINGDON, .Jan. 3.���������The Sumas School Board for 1921 held their  final meeting on Friday night at  . Huntingdon at a time when, owing to  a misunderstanding," the Matsqui  . Schoo.l Board were -waiting to meet  them in Abbotsford.   .  A joint meeting had been suggested to discuss the situation caused by  ��������� the precipitant action of the government. Two months ago the Matsqui,  ���������^'''Sumas^and'tAbbqts*fbrd"'^b"oa>dS'''vgent-  representatives to Victoria seeking.a  solution for the overcrowded situation at Abbotsford. The two adjoining municipalities were furnishing  60 per cent, of the pupils, but could  not, by law, assist in . building new  school rooms.  In conference with the. department  Of education, a plan was evolved to  enlarge the Abbotsford school area  by taking in sections of the surrounding districts',' thus the, .Abbotsford  board would have school tax control'  over the whole area that supplies  the pupils'. Satisfied that this was  a feasible solution, the delegates returned home, understanding that  the department would make arrangements for the prosposed change to be  carried   out  this  year.  They Jieard that an "enabling act"  had passed the Legislature, but had  no idea of its' immediate" force until  the provincial assessor came on the  scene to assess the new school area  for 1922! This would not have  been so very serious had the amount  to be collected equalled the 1922 estimates.  The assessor, however." said his instructions were to assess the whole  district for $1800, the amount passed last July by the citizen:; of Abbotsford for" the townsite only. This  was hut 4 0 per cent, of their require-  ���������; ments, as at that time they intended  to bill* the municipalities' for the  other 60 per cent, or $2700.  Abbotsford immediately appealed  for a postponement, Sumas protested  against action without due consultation. The mails carried high indignation for a time, but legality has  now been given for a meeting of  ratepayers of the new area to decide  on new estimates for the whole new  : area, and this meeting will be held  on Friday, January 6.  of this meeting will be  sections will be taxed  resentation, as the hasty-act states  that the, old board elected from the  townsite shall remain in office until  July,   .1922.  HELD LAST FRIDAY  The third annual Scotch concert  held in the Abbotsford theatre- on  Friday night, proved.a big success,  both as' regards attendance and quality. ��������� There was a crowded house,  .which.followed and appreciated * ey-  -ey ; ieri" with thorough enjoyment.-  The programme was\ne best yet. submitted to an Abbotsford audience."

The dancing  was perhaps, the feature, of'the evening, "arid to the music of Piper Mc-  Beth Misses Norma Mur/ay and Lottie Matthews and Masters John Mc-  Hardy and Archie White gave splendid exhibitions of strathspeys, reels,  Highland fling, Irish jig, sailor's  hornpipe, etc. Mrs'. Wells proved an  efficient accompanist. At the conclusion of the concert the hall was  immediately cleared and a real  Scotch dance took place. Mrs. Wells,  Mr. Dunn and Mr. J.

He overlooked some  moving cars where the Northern Pacific Railway engine was switching,  and was caught broadside by the  switched cars.

Last year  toria recently passed out the sug-vaml tnis year,'while the government  gestion that at an early date ihe Con- lias neen pleading poverty in regard  servatives of the province would to Lne establishment of our own  hold a convention and that at this Unversify,, tho Provincial Department  convention the name of the party -o1 Agriculture has been paying-  would be changed to National Libor-' grants to Guelph to enable IL C. far-  al-Conscrvative party. Me is reported to have intimated at the same  time that is would be tho beginning  of a movement to rejuvenate the  party.  This paper extends its sympathy to  those who are wishing to change the  name of the Conservative party permanently, to-that,.   horribly    cumbersome  name   which   the  late, premier  Meighen'and  his party tacked on  to  the good old party name, just before  going to the country.    Just in plain  English this paper is' of  the can'lid  opinion  that Meighen    would    have  been returned by a very much largei  number of followers had he abandoned the hyphenated name, and called  himself and* followers Conservatives,  or  even   Tory   would   be   preferable.  We  won't go so  far "as  to say  -.hat  the resolution to change    the    name  was  the party's' death  warrant,  but  it, looks,as though it was much akin  to it.     The Fraser Valley is only on'e  constituency and among many    old-  time Conservatives the name v,as not  popular;  while> from the public platform  that name was ridiculed  times  without number by his opponents.  Conservative sounds,just as' good  anyhow. Hyphenated names do not  sound   democratic.  Conservatives throughout the  the Dominion have one satisfaction  at least in .the defeat,of the party  at' the recent Dominion election, and  that is that Sir Henry,.Drayton- has  lost' his occupation of sitting up late  at night to figure out how* much ot  the money that the business men of  Canada, made during the day, he can  get out of them in sales tax,"etc. It  will take the Liberal minister." some  little time to formulate such a grand  scheme of figuring,'if ever.  When the suggestion was ' made  over a year ago," to change the -rule of  the road in' Vancouver, competent  and careful opinion'had-it that such  change could only be accompanied  by much confusion and many accidents. ..'.-*  The rule of the road has . been  changed in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. Everything is'  smoothly.. Automobiles are present  in as great numbers on the streets  of the city as ever before. The", street  car service is maintaining its.prd-,  inary level.  And greatest of all, this change lias  mors sons to leave this province to  take agriculture instructions at the  Ontario College.���������Sun.'  No Discount on  Taxes in 1922  WANT  WHITE  MEN  AS IMMIGRANTS  "A great"many people are   apparently of the    opinion  that    one    of  our missions in life is to "Cariadian-  ize" a host of Continental Europeans.  As 1 take it    Canada-is a    nation���������a  nation of English and French-speaking peoples���������and not a foreign missionary    society."     Such  * being   the  case, immigration    from "^down-and-  out     bedraggled       Europe     should  cease, at least for the    time    being,  and one1 is glad to see that the Canadian  immigration    authorities    are  of like mind.    In a recent interview  in  The  London  Times,  Mr,   VV. ��������� E.  Black, of the Canadian    Department  of  Immigration     and     Colonization,  said:  " 'We want the British blood and  tongue in Canada, and wo are going  (o get if if we can. We are going to-  concentrate on the United Kingdom;  what we need now is British yeast to  leaven  the  lump.'  "Mr. Black goes' on to state that  what his department is anxious to see  is a large influx of sound British agriculturists, men and women who  have lived under the British flag and  have some understanding of and respect for our principles of Government. This programme is a portion  at least of Mr. Black's present visit  to Britain, and it is to be hoped that  he  is  successful. -  "During the recent political campaign all parties felt compelled to  appeal to the foregin voter in his native language. This was particularly true of foreigners who have -settled' in the Western Provinces and  who on general principles decline to  learn either English ,or French and  who forbid their children the" public, schools. ,  "Week after week    sedition    and  treason are - preached   in    Canadian  theatres and public halls    frequent-  . ed by.polyglot Europeans who -.have  working ueen allowed to enter this country,  and who now that ��������� they r are here  would make a Russian "hell .'of  it. An Ottawa lady, writing; pleads  that.Saturday Night 'help the",good  work on,' by which she    means help  . these  malcontents   into   the   country  been accomplished without one singe 'in place oC kicking- them out  accident.  Such things. do not. happen by  chance. The fact that "the change  . in" the road rule as-.occurred '"with  " " such little confusion and no mishaps  is due entirely to the intelligence  with which officers of the. B. C.. Electric Railway Company advertised  and managed the change.  The B. C. Electric from the first  assumed responsibility for making  the streets safe during and after the  - change. The B. C. Rilectric went to  a great deal of trouble and .expense  to inform and advise the public how  to conduct themselves to obviate  accident.  Officers' of the B. C. Electric have  performed a real public service in  their attitude on the change in the  rule of the road.���������Sun.  Becase the University of British  Columbia is cramped into absurdly  small quarters, valuable courses have  had to be omitted entirely from the  curriculum.  Practicially every other university in Canada and the United States  gives' a course in trade and commerce  Men who expect to make business  their life work are taught the latest  methods of buying and selling, culled  from the experience of successful  men the world over.  Business in British Columbia is  denied this assistance, because the  University has been treated as an institution of no more importance than  a dance hall. /,  Neglect of the University is having  a direct and startling effect on agriculture in this province. Expcri-  ' mental work which should have  been carried on for the past three  years, has never properly started be-fin  cause the miles between experimental field and classroom waste hours'  each day for each agricultural instructor and student.  The province has been too poor to  construct   telephones     in    sufficient  number between the University buildings and  the  farm.    When  an  agricultural professor    has    instructions  to   issue   to   his   department  at   the  farm, he is usually forced to go out  in  person���������ride part of the way by  street car, part by jitney bus and go  the rest of the way on foot.     Conditions are, in most respects, as primitive as when Captain Vancouver landed here, in virgin forest, years ago  But. the province is not too poor to  send B. C. students to the Agricultur-  "."If'.this lady .and others knew  what was going on about them they  would likely be less-earnest^in their  desire to make. Canada- a -'melting  pot.' Would' it surprise these people  to know that right under their noses, in some of our larger cities, both  in.-Eastern . and" Western. Canada,  Ukrainians (little* Russians) have  been^ giving a series' of dramatic entertainments, the purport of which is  to inflame the people, "overthrow  the Bourgoeisie' and establish "a  Soviet?"  "To most people, as they calmly go  about their business or their pleasures, such details may sound like "a  bad dream, but these statements are  none the less true.' The documents  are before me as I write, but for obvious reasons, the details cannot be  made public-at this time."  VICTORIA, Dec.,30.���������Issue'of the  first tax notices for 1921. 'from the  provincial taxation branch calls attention to ,t.hj-;-.fact that at the recent  session of he ^Provincial Legislature  some important , alterations in the  previous statutory provisions governing taxation /were made which taxpayers should" note. .' The real' property* tax'for-rthis year is due and payable on February 15 next, and if unpaid by April'30 next, a'levy of 1 per  cent, per month will be made as penalty. Under., Uie previous provisions  of tho Taxation Act. these teal property taxes' were not,due and* payable  until June 30, and if paid on or before that date a 10 per cent.'discount was allowed. This discount  has now been wiped out, and a penalty as above'/for non-payment by  April   30   has  been substituted.  At the recent session of the Legislature all the clauses dealing,with income and 'personal    property    taxes  were taken ''from    the   Taxation Act  and incorporated in a separate measure.    Under this new    act no definite due date is. fixed as the limit beyond which the 1 per cent, per month  penalty will be    levied.      The usual  tax notices willbe sent out to taxpayers for tRem to make their    income  or personal property returns.    When  these returns'are 'made the* custom  ary assessment notices' will be issued  and the tax will ' then be    forthwith  due and-unless paid within two,calendar months the'tax will be deemed to be delinquent and the   penalty  of 1 per cent, per month will become  operative and for each month's    delinquency . a, further    I.    per    cent,  charge will be made.    So far no    income  tax or  personal    property  tax  notices have been issued.    The previous' 10 per cent, discount is eliminated.    In this connection    firms and  corporations which are    annually required  to make a return of salaries  paid  to employees must make their  returns to the department not later  than   February..  Income Tax Sale  A change was also made at the recent session to the scale of taxation  oil incomes. The previous scale was  1 deemed to work a hardship upon  those receiving,, larger incomes in  that a taxpayer under that scale,  might, by drawing orie dollar more  than the maximum amount for his  class", have to pay in taxation two or  three hundred dollars more in^taxes.  Now the scale is graduated by the  $100 UP to * $10,500. The scale of  taxation on incomes is now as follows: ' .  One per cent, on all net   -incomes  up to $2500 insteadof l'per cent, up  to $2000-as' hitherto. . On higher incomes the scale3is.as follows:  Over $2500    and' not more  $3500; 2 per cent.

Over $19,500 and not    more than  $25,700, 1-5-per cent. - ���������  Over $25,700; 20 per cent. -  The exemptions this year-will be  $2000 for a married individual, and  $1000 for a single taxpayer, with- an  additional exemption to the married  taxpayer of $200 for each dependent  within the meaning of the act. Life  insurance premiums , will again  be exempted to more than one-sixth  of the gross' income.  eep to  vNow the New Year is begun, "Keep to the right"  is a very  good   motto.

Moreover, if it takes  advantage of its opportunities, it  will, in the not,distant future have  as many adherents as it ever had.  .

Let  us embody these policies in a platform, a platform that can be written  in less than 500 words, a platform-  that will be, not a chart, but a bond  which the Conservative party will  honor in the spirit and letter of the  word.
