BOARD OF TRADE TO  HOLD IMPORTANT  The Board of Trade meets on Min  day next, when important matters  will -come up fan discussion      It is  lokely that the question of better  fire' protection and an up-to-date  water w^orke system for the town  will 'comie up for'discussion. '  The  recent fire has made sorrfe of   our  '.citizens 'dp a   little thinking     a-  long  these lines, and it   is likely  that the "provincial government will  be asked to assist in giving     "the  town 'the above requisites. Seeing  that the taxes are collected by. the  provincial ���������government   ajn'd     the  town is not large enough for incorporation- and  'self-'goverpifmeinit dt  wp'ulld not be out "of place- for the  Board to appoint a"  delegation to  go to Victoria to interview the government  along these lines.   It    is  believed   that legislation will    be  be passed, during the coming session \to assist small towns in* securing fire protection and some of the  other advantages of an incorporated ffawnf; and for Abbotsford     Ifcp^  place  her claims before the  govern mient would d probably make the  McBride -.goviernment more alive to  the requirements of the unorganized taii|S)tiricts and town's of the' province.   Assistance -shdu'ld "be forthcoming land, the recent'fire in Abbotsford and the loss in  connection ^therewith should impress; more  vividly the necessities of the rising  towns of the province, which     are  too small to incorporate but which  need the machinery and assistance  of   ai. incorporated town.        The  Board of Trade is lhe only, medium  which   is capa'bie of representing  t.o the authorities the needs of the  people.   . i       ,    '  ,, i  i-f '"'  "... i  ���������R, iW. /MeSotrTey, formerly of New  ���������Westminster, wlho is now 'dispenser; (of liquuids at jt'he Ant-lot a ford,  paid New Westminster a visit yesterday, y c . ] .. \ ;, .; .,'���������.....;. >,,'���������  -  -     ������-���������- ���������  Mir.
