Matters of  Importance   Will  Come  up for Discussion  at Next Meeting!  , The regular' meeting of the Board  of Trade, which should? have taken,  place j last Monday, for some reason  failed to materialize, a and - many . of  ,the. residents of the town are anxiously awaiting the "next meeting. In  the opinion of. some" of those- who  took an active part in ./checking the  recent fire some, of the /nearby buildings . had a close call: It is felt that  the  time -has    arrived  Jwhen    some  ���������    -- -   .-    x  prompt action should he;.takento provide-not-only, adequate .-five -protection  but   also   a  system   of  water  supply,  and sanitation. Naturally it is through  the .working of  the   Board   of  Trade  that these things can be accomplished.  Abbotsford is' undoubtedly a most favorable  location  for  the  hbmeseeker  and small "rancher, and more especially for those who are desirous of retiring  from   city   life   and   engaging  in  poultry-raising and horticulture, as Us  shipping   adyantages   are'  everything  that can be desired. m  Wake up, 'Abbotsfard, and get a  move on.  The want of a suitable place for  meeting is, of course, badly felt, but  still there are various places where  meetings could be held for the present  and with all the members taking an  active part much good could be. accomplished.  A few hydrants placed at; advantageous points throughout ..the town  would tend to give prospective builders ��������� an, incentive to erect larger and  more' commodious buildings, which  the growing demand of the community are in need of. This and other  questions pertaining to the welfare of  Abbotsford are matters that should be  taken up by the Board, as it is the  only medium which is capable-of representing to the powers that be the  needs and requirements of the people.  It "is altogether likely a meeting  will, be held, Friday night and it - is  hoped  that all members  will attend.  Once again, wake up, Abbotsford.  , Mr. J. Firth, recently from Alberta,  has purchased^ a tract of land from  M. L.~ McPhee and intends going extensively into poultry raising. Mr.  Firth has been looking over the Valley recently'with a view to purchasing a suitable location for a chicken  ranch, and eventually came to the  conclusion, that Abbotsford, with its  splendid transportation facilities, was  the ideal spot for such an industry  and has decided to make his home  with us.' He intends to erect suitable buildings on the property lately  acquired and will move his family  .here as soon as the necessary arrangements are' completed.  Watch Abbotsford grow.  COURT OF  REVISION.  A visitor dropped into J.- AHlnson's  store Tuesday morning, when that gentleman was busily engaged manipulating a hand-saw, and asked him what he  was doing. He replied that he was  was busy on a "work of art." The said  work of art materialized into a piece of  mechanism which in some foreign  cold countries is used for the removal  of traces of the "beautiful" from the  sidewalks, roofs, etc. Not having a  card in the local Snow Shoveller's Union/the visitor hurriedly "departed.  Mr. S. Brooke, whose general store  was destroyed in the recent fire, left  for Vancouver Tuesday. Mr. Brooke is  undecided about reopening" business, as  at present he can not find a suitable  location. Mr..Brooke received $5,000  insurance as compensation for his loss  in the fire.  M. L. McPhee    reports activity in  real  estate and looks forwards to a  The Sumas municipality held their  Court of Revision on Monday .last in  the .Municipal Hall, with all members  of the" Council present.  The list stands as it was made up  by., the clerk; although the Court was  ���������asked to place on'the list the Boley'  Brothers; but after considering their  case, it was decided that as the applicants were not owners they could not  be placed on the list.  After the work of reviewing the list  was gone over, the Council started in  on unfinished  business. -''  At the last meeting of the Council  Mr. W. H. Fadden'approached,the men  who govern the destinies of the community , and asked them what they  really required in regard to the contract let to him in 1931, and which  had never been accepted by the Coun-'  cil as completed." The " Council explained exactly what they wanted. Mr.  Fadden promised that'he .would have  the work done in that way. A representative viewed the work and his  leport placed before the Council was  accepted, the work, as completed,, being satisfactory. This matter then is  now satisfactory to both parties, and  the community are glad that both Mr.  Fadden and the Council have at last  agreed.  The audit of the books was accepted  by the Council.  The nomination for Reeve, Councillors and School Trustees will take  place on Monday, January 13th, and  the election will be held on the 18th,  unless all are elected by acclamation.  The Monday following the election  the Council for 1912 will meet and  finish the business for the year, and  the Council for 1913 will take the oath  of office and begin their pleasant  duties.  H. Gazley Intends Re-buildiug  With Either Brick or  Cement.  Mr.' Gazley, who was one of the  heaviest losers in the recent fire which  nearly wiped Abbotsford out, will re-.  build as soon as possible. . Mr. Gazley  has great faith in the future prosperity  o,f Abbotsford, and informed a representative of \he Post that, he intends  erecting another block to take the  place of the one destroyed recently,  but the new" one would certainly not  be a frame one. It would be constructed either of concrete or brick. <      '  Contractors are already figuring "on  .the specifications','though some of ,the '  figures are slightly above ��������� Mr. .Gazley's*  expectations, and it-is altogether like;  ly that new plans will be submitted;  but in any case the block will be re-  j built and will be in keepiirg witlT the  needs of the rapidly developing' country.   .  Mr. Gazley stated that he had already received applications from several clients in^ regard to renting stores  in the new block, thus demonstrating  the fact that outside capital is interested in the bright future which lies  before Abbotsford and surrounding district, i - '  The loss of the Maple Leaf hall was  a severe one to Mr. Gazley, over $1000  worth Oif furniture and fixtures being  destroyed, on which there was no insurance. ���������  The insurance on the building has  ) been adjusted satisfactorily to all.  Mr. Gazley wishes the/Post to thank  all the volunteers who rendered such  valuable assistance during the fire, as  no doubt but for their heroic efforts  his private residence would have been  destroyed also.  The weather! Did you ever see the  like of it in y^,ur life? Not in this  province���������on the coast, at least. But,  thanks be to our friend the rain, the  snow will soon disappear, we trust. It  lias pleased those who come from the  east to enjoy a little of the weather  that made them grow big and enjoy  the skate and the sleigh ride.  Since the Maple Leaf Hall was destroyed by fire the young people have  been at loss for a suitable place to  hold entertainments, e(c, but Friday  evening the lower hall in the Masonic Temple was utilized as a dancing pavilion, and a large number of  gay young couples spent a pleasant  evening.  Messrs. A.. Henderson and Len McPhee, both might hunters of renown,  went out duck shooting recently and  returned with several brace of fine mallards. But wonderful to relate the  game was captured without wasting  several hundred rounds of ammunition.  A common club did the slaughter, the  poor, helpless ducks being discovered  with their feet securely embedded in  the ice on the lake. Some unkind person, remarked that that was the only  way the hunters could have secured  the game.  Mrs. B. J. Gernacy 'returned Monday  from visiting friends in New Westmin  a*-,  Abbotsford experienced a slight  fall of snow several days this week.  Rather unusual at this time of the  year.  Mr. H. Allinson, whose hardware  store was destroyed in the recent  fire, has about completed remodelling  his former Warehouse and expects to  greet all his old���������and lots of new-  customers with a brand new stock of  goods which will be in place in the  course  of  a  few  days.  So far no trace has been found of  the bold, bad burglars who burglarized our local barber shop. Perhaps  they have "cut it out." They had the  necessary implements.  It is reported that a gentleman living on Matsqui Prairie mourns the loss  of a motor cycle through making a  slight error,in regard to the customs rh   -1  TBB ABBOTSFORfc POST,      ABBOTSFORD, B. 0.  ,.-- --J  =o=  THE ABBOTSFORD POST.  : Published Every Friday by The Post Publishing Company.  ���������     A weekly Journal devoted to the interests of: Abbotsford and  surrounding district..

Our Shibboleth���������Neither for nor agin the Government.  The School Book Trust of the Slate of Washington has been  attacked and called "the most despicable of all the abhorrent systems of thievery conceivable, filching with the school funds through  means of text books." Then the'article starts along and states that  it is rendered more abhorrent "when'it is demonstrated that the  books furnished are of the lowest standard and only tend to retard  progress toward reliable education." All this being the result of  monopoly through' official favor'. " .    ���������  The'^reat trouble with the text-books of any country, state or  province^ that they are constantly changed, and in many cases  '.they are not prepared by competent men, men who by then- standing  ialong educational lines and the particular study of the child mind,  iare particularly unfitted to produce a book that will interest the  child and aid him in his work during school life.   The school books  of the province have been changed many times during the past fourteen or fifteen years, and it is doubtful if the text books m use in  this province at the present time arc any better or as good as they  were, years ago.   If a book is good, why should it not be good for a  number of vears?   True, times are changing; but is the child s mind  changing? ' It makes education  more  expensive, notwithstanding  the fact that the province of British Columbia furnishes some ol the  books for the school.   They call them "Free Text Books," but are  ���������they free when all things are considered?   The people pay for them  in the end.  The Post will have more to say regarding the text books of this  ' province at a later date.

Tom Lawson, in Everybody's Magazine, is finishing up the work  of exposing New York's stock exchanges' method of robbing the  >public, which he began in his Frenzied Finance some years ago. ^  "In the current articles he gives a remedy which, if applied, will  fbreak the power of the gamblers in Wall street'to bleed the public.  ��������������� To many people the attack made upon the gamblers by Lawson  ���������"would seem to be extravagant beyond possibility, but the facts  : being uncovered by the Congressional CoMmittee investigating the  ..Money Trust are corroborative of every statement Lawson makes.  ���������-, A governor of the Exchange, testifying" before'the Congressional Committee the other day, stated that so far as speculation  ; is concerned the Stock Exchange considers itself a unit entirely  separate from the public, and with which the public is not supposed  '' to have anything to do, "and if it does, any collateral entrusted to a  -broker is liable for the broker's debts to fellow members on the  r exchange in case of his failure. Or that such collateral may be  *'pledged for money borrowed by the broker, and is forfeited.if the  [ broker fails just.as if it were the. broker's personal property.  Lawson's remedy to curb the thieving manipulation of both  securities and gullable outsiders by the speculation in Wall Street  " is to deprive every New York or other broker having connection  with the Stock Exchange from the mails.

HOW ABOUT TIT SUB?,  If   you  are a delinquent  on  your  subscription to The Abbotsford Post,  we want to see or hear from you.  The  Post has now been running for several  years; and while but few dunners are  being sent out for subscriptions, yet  at the same timera dollar would not  be   amiss  from  those  who ��������� read   the  paper.   We always take it that a man  who reads our papers should also pay  his little yearly subscription at least  once a year.;   Unlike some publishers,  we do not make' a practice of sending  out requests for payment by means' of  the paper's columns,  or through the  postoffice.    In looking  over  our  list,  it is found that there are a number of  people who have not paid for the past  year; so if you are in arrears, kindly  hand in, or send in, a remittance to  cover the amount owed,' and the same  will be heartily appreciated.   Our aim  is for everyone to read the paper and J  pay for it.   It must be a pleasure to *  read The Post once a week, and the f  publisher likes the money.
