OVERLAND AGENCY  AND SERVICE STATION  BRIDGE QUESTION GOMES UP  AT LAST BOARD MEETING  (From Fraser Valley Record)   <  Monday night the Board of Trade  held their regular meeting    in    tho  Council Chambers with a good attend  ��������� ance.  Among the questions brought up for  discussion was the correspondence  between the board and Mr. F. B.  Stacey, M. P., of this district, who resides at Chilliwack.  His lett ers are as follows:  On   December   26th   he   writes   as  follows: '   ri;  K  I have carefuly examined'^the^pp--  Fraser River bridge at Mission-arid  requesting' my assistance -in securing  the co-operation -of.1 the Dominion  Government in the construction of  the same.  I fear that my task will be a very  difficult if not an impossible one under the terms of your proposition.  I have carefully eamined the Dominion "estimates" and can find  nothing whatever in the way of "precedent."  I will meet at once with the rejoinder that sueh work "is purely provincial and not within their jurisdiction.  There is one ease however where  ���������assistance has been given viz: in the  building of a bridge across the Cap-  ilano river in N. Vancouver. In that  proposition the cost was equally divided between the Dominion' the Province and the Municipality and the  argument was of course that it was  not a commercial enterprise but an  accommodation to tourists who' come  from all parts of the Dominion.  In this proposition you ask the  Dominion to finance two thirds of  the cost and then collect half of that  by toll from the traffic both municipalities as such being eempt. If I have  correctly understood your proposition  my firm conviction is that the Department would not favorably consider it  I would at once be asked why the  Dominion should undertake that  work for Misison and not also for  hundreds of similar points thru-out  the Dominion.  I must ask you to furnish me with  such reason as will enable me to convince the Department that the Dominion should endorse your resolution.  Then again on January 9th after  receiving reasons from the secretary  of the Board of Trade Mr. Stacey  sends the  following:  In reply to your last letter I may  say that as your representative I  shall be pleased to submit any resolution you present.to the proper officials.  You are however mistaken I think  in stating that I can accomplish what  you desire.  My own firm conviction    is ' that  your proposition is an impossible one  It is both unwise .and unfair    for  me to say one thing to you and believe another  l  A bridge would certainly be a convenience and  it  might draw a par!  of the tourist traffic from the souu  and it would be a desirable thing for  the coast city tourist traffic in making  the circuit, but all-, of these things  will hot induce parliament to assume the responsibility of building  the bridge . and shoulder two-thirds  of the cost' You may secure endors-  ations from Boards of Trade or Municipal Councils, but that does not  furnish a resaon or reasons why the  Dominion Government should build  the bridge.and really I would long-  hesitate before assuring the Department that it was as much a Dominion  measure as the "building of the Wel-  land canal." I would be quickly advised that the construction of canals  was by constitution a federal measure, whereas the building of roads  .and bridges was a'.purely provincial  matter. .;      '  ���������-��������� I greatly'regret'th'at7l^"an'giVc'yo'us  no   reasonable   hope   of  success  The   contest   for   reeve   of   Sumas  municipality is sure to be a hot" one  this Saturday, and unless the Post is  badly mistaken the same    old    reeve  will   oeciipy   tho   chair   Cor   flic   next,  twelve months.

A new man, no matter how excellent, would he without  the former experience of a councillor  'in the municipality.  In Mals\ii municipality it is not  likely that \/eve McCallum will meet  his Waterloo this year even wii.n two  opponents in the field. Canvassing is  however, very strong and unless the  Post is mistaken a number of men  will come nearly promising to vote,  for more, than one for reeve and "find'  that only one is the limit.  PERSONALS  Mi  CORRESPOX DENCF  To the Editor  v      n  Dear Sir: ���������  .1 noticed an item in your  entitled  "Predicts  35. cent-  last issue  eggs"  in  which5.it stated that there are 'ltl.OOU  more^chickens in the province this  year .-than last yeai and therefore a  lower"tjrice in eggs is' to uo looked  It   for. if fce.d prices ease up.  would be a fine thing to have such a  'bridge, hut I am fully satisfied the  Dominion Government will not build  it.  A reply in regard to . the above  question was also received from the  provincial government through the  minister of public works, who instead  of giving a direct reply called attention to the fact that the government  was putting on a larger ferry.  HELD ANNUAL MEETING  c  AT HATZIC YESTERDAY  The Fruit & Mercantile held their j  annual meeting at Hatzic on Wednes- j  day afternoon with a fair attendance,  ther being about seventy present    including some fifteen Japanese. r  The financial report for the nine  months was read, showing a gross  profit of ? 11,000 and a net profit of  $7500 for the nine months' business.  The report was passed unanimously.  Moved by Mr. J. B. Cade and seconded by A. E. Dann that the present directors be nominated for the  year 1920, which.was carried.  The officers are:  President���������-W. J|  Vice-Pres.���������A. E  Sec.-Treas.���������Geo.  Directors���������J. M  Manson.  Catchpole.  I-I. Moody.  Cox, A. C. Fisher  J. H. Lawrence and J. A. Tupper.  Also Messrs Kudo and Ulda representing the Japanese.  It was also decided to appoint an  advisory board or committee with representatives  from  each  district.  An appeal was made to old stockholders for additional subscriptions  to stoclt of the company which was  unanimously responded to and about  $1500   was   immediately   subscribed.  The chairman stated that further  appeals would be made later.  The meeting then closed.  Dame Rumor has it that several of  our young ladies will shortly want a  real nice wedding cake. Don't ask  who, just have a little patience.  It would be well for the public to  know the source of' prediction in  this case, "wholesalers predict,- etc."  It is well that the public should  know a few tacts in connection with  the egg trade  (1) 13. C has never produced  more than 50% of flic eggs required  for her own consumption.  (2) The increasing cost of feed  makes any large increase in poultiy  flocks in the near future very Unlikely.  (3) The newly formed corporative association "The Poultry man's  Union of 13. C." is working to secure fair profits" for the poultrymen,  and the wholesalers is out after the  scalp of the Union.  When the death of a co-operative  association has been decided on one  or all of the following methods may  be adopted: .  (1) By attempting to draw av.v.y  its members by offering better prices  than the Union is  giving.  (2) By importing large quantities of the articles in question frcni  outside.  (3) By the wholesale slaugiuer  of prices.  1 know that tlie first two methods  have already been adopted and Ihe  third may follow.  If a big drop in the price of  takes place it will not bo due  natural market based on cost oi  duction, but because .���������someone  been performing an operation.

II. is reported thai the leader of the opposition in the provincial house will shortly address a public meeting at Mission City,  and .why not get his candid opinion on the matter after shewing  him the necessity for it. When the leader of the federal oppos-  %i ition,' MacKenzio King comes west, if he ever does, arrangements  should be made to show him also.  We have- yet to convince the Dewdney representative that  a bridge is-required.    A letter sent him by the board of track  was referred to his minister of public works, who in turn-kindly  '   ' referred to the nice new ferry that the government was building  . Thai was getting away from the question altogether.    The ferry in.the meantime is an absolute necessity, and so is the bridge.  Our federal representative says that it is an impossible task  for him tc take up with the Union Government.    He requires a  ��������� thorough convincing it seems before he will even say one word  about it to the other members at Ottawa.    Further he wants a  '.    pre cedent.    He quotes the Capilano, which he says was not a  "commercial enterprise, but an accommodation to "tourists whe  . .come from all parts of the Dominion." We all appreciate the  tourist traffic, but to. build up the country's business we would  suppose that a commercial enterprise would come ahead of accommodation to tourists.,  But when a proposition, like the   Mission-Matsqui " bridge  comes under both that of an accommodation" to tourists and h  also a commercial enterprise, we believe it. gives the proposition  a much stronger reason why the bridge should be built.    Last  season there were about 9,000 automobiles with over 34,000 people, visited B. C.'  These came by way of Blaine into the pro  vince and were worth about $3,000,000 to the city of Vancouver.    With the almost assured completion of an excellent road J  on the north side of the river and a bridge across the Fraser..  ��������� there is no doubt but many tourists would return to the United  States by way of Stave Falls, Mission, Matsqui, Abbotsford and  across the line at Sumas, thus relieving the traffic at Blaine tc  some extent and giving the tourist variety.    Pie would, sec one  oi the largest power.plants on the coast, which has the unique  position of giving power to cities of the United States.    This  route would be a popular one with tourists, it is believed.    And  If there were also an excellent highway on the south side oi  the river, the circuit of up the north and down the south' sidt  of the river would make a nice afternoon run for the tourisl  while staying in   the province,  besides  proving  an -all-rounc1  pleasure route for the people of Vancouver and New Westminster, for the entire year.    The route claims some scenery too, besides seeing the fertile Fraser Valley.  As a commercial enterprise the present growth'of the districts  on the north side of ihe river require a more convenient mode of  crossing and recrossing the Fraser River. ��������� The ferry runs every  forty minutes. Should a ferry be missed a wait of forty minutes  is the result; or should the ferry be overcrowded the same result  follows.' Wo venture to say that, while convenient, it is true,  that the present schedule of the ferry has cost the farmers of  Matsqui and the fruit growers of Mission City many thousands  of dollars during the last few years in lost time. This would not  be the case if there were a bridge across the Fraser.  <13������ HASTINGS Street, \V.  (Over C.P.R. Tit-lc.   &  Tol'.  Ollloiia)  VANCOUVKll - RC.

Changing the Road Systems���������  The Mission and Maple Ridge councils are both talking of  making changes in the method of procuring better results in-the  building of roads. One man with a gang of men is to have  charge of the spending of the municipal money, but the farmers  ot each district will have the opportunity, when the gang comes  to their place on road, of working, but cannot as in the past delay  the work until such time as they are real good and ready This  ���������will undoubtedly be watched by the other municipalities, and if  it works well will undoubtedly be adopted.

It is contended that whatever may  be the desire or intention of the government in the matter, the temperance' forces may demand a new. act,  for should a vote be taken in any of  the provinces for provincial-wide. proT  ihibition under the amended Scott Act  before tlie repeal of the War Time  Election act, the vote (being a..federal one,) would.have to be taken under the terms of the act.  This, however, is not the only  question that conies up in this regard. In the opimon of Alexander  Sinilli,  barrister of Ottawa, and pro-  alties if he does, for the war is still  en in a few countries.  The by-elections could have taken  place under the War Time -Elections  act. ... .: .    ���������  Dewdney Doings  vis-  bably oiie.oj" the best authorities in  Canada on electoral laws, anyone elected under the by-election act of  19.19 is not entitled to sit in parliament, and if ho does so. ho is liable  Lo  heavy penalties.  Mr. Smith .sets forth his views as  follows..  Section  one of tlie War Time 151-  lectlons  act states  that  the said  act  J is to be in force "during tho present  war   and   until   demobilization   after  the conclusion of peace."    The last  sentence of this act declares that the  Dominion   Elections act  1916,  as. a-  mendod  by  the War Time Elections  act,   "Is   for  the period  of  the  war  deemed amended."  ^    The   Dominion     By-elections     act  19.19 makes no reference whatsoever  to the'War Time Elections act, but it  distinctly  states  in   the  last  section  'that  "in  case of such a by-election,  'Chapter 20  of the acts of 19IS, an  act to confer the electoral franchise  upon women, shall not apply.' '  Section two of the Women's Franchise act provides that the said act  shall be read with the Dominion Elections act 1906 and the War Time  Elections act 1917.  The By-elections act 1919 does not  in any way profess to amend, supercede or repeal the War Time Elections act, but the government a faw  months ago passed an order-in-coun-  cil to the effect that for the purposes  of this act the war was to be consid������  ered over.  War in an actual existent state of,  things is a fact in itsself and the  order-in-council is but. a subterfuge.  War was on in many countrlesinl917  ceased in all of them and has peace  been declared with all of these countries? If so, and if demobilization is  complete, then the By-elections act is  effective, but otherwise it is not. The  result of this confusion is that should  a vote be asked for any of the provincial legislatures for provincial-  wide prohibition, that vote would, as  the law now stands, be under the  War Time Elections act.

The council has the gift of  various offices, the Clerkship, Collector and Assessor, municipal constable and Collector of Road Tax.  The ratepayers would* like'to see  these offices filled by returned boys:  We would  also     recommend    the  newly elected School Board to engage  the services of a returned bey as-secretary to the School Board.

''  Dear  Editor and Public:  T under si ami that annual meeting  of the Fruit aud Mercantile Exchange  will be held on 14th instant at Hatzic Hall.  . How much this organization will  benefit for tliose "who grow berries,  surrounding district of Mission and  Hatzic, are far beyond my power to  express. Without this corporation,  nobody can assure our safety from  starva'tion, owing to.the present high  prices of commodity and maximum  cf labour wages, at least we shall be  enslaved under fearful  hand of cap-  iUil.  Fortunately, those gentlemen who  have sympathy for fruit growers have  organized the corporation and invited  us to join.  How can we refuse or hesitate for  the invitation? We all decided to  come'under the flag of the Fruit and  Mercantile Exchange.  The birth of this organization was  given last spring so that she is very  young, hot more than one year old.  But already' shown us her ability at  last season, and we can expect more  coming season.  One thing I wish to the corporation  is that every officer should remember  that ho is a protector of fruit growers.    Then,   there  is   no   doubt,   but  !

If the editor would permit mc to  wrilo'.-i little more at tills occasion  for introducing of our Japanese Farmers' Association, 1 am nothing but  a member aforementioned, so that  flic following is only niy personal  opinion.  This Japanese Farmers' Association is established just because the  most oi' us are unable to command  English language No other reason  which necessitates us for forming our  own association.  I  am  sure all of us have a  mind  to   live  cur   lives here  in   this country,  so  that,  wc aro always- striving  to learn your manners, customs and  education    Our children .are attending  to  tho public schools  or higher  one, while young boys study English  at home or at private night schools.  In near future, I believe we do not  require  our  own  association  of the  present   because   coming   generation  could   adopt   English   for  their  own  language just as so well as English  speaking nation.  Thanking'in advance to Mr. Editor  wiih anticipation of giving  this letter a space of your precious paper.  Yours very truly,  S. KUWAKARA.
