No critcism was  was, spared- by ��������� any of the speakers  Many personal;,remarks were made  Questions were, asked as'to'how the  Htaxes.would.be reduced. Did the  statements of'-'receipts and expenditures show* all the money .that was  spent? ��������� How hiuch of the* municipal  money is, tied, up : in Dennison-  Bradner road?.- Was fair treatment  given all the ratepayers, etc..'.-  On the motion of H. R. Phillips  a new step was taken in municipal  politics. .It was that a voter be allowed to vote at any polling station  for councilor for the ward the voter is legally qualified to vote in.  Reeve Merryfield, in opening, said  that he tried 'to give fair treatment  to all of the ratepayers in every  ward. He endeavored to get the  government .t.6.-Bjjend as? rmvph^nimey.,  on the ��������� roads ' as possible. Believed  in'having a road engineer for a short  time; considered it his duty to repair  roads; without orders from the council; thought the taxes'.for'this year  too high for the conditions .of .i-:io  roads held semi-monthly meetings at  Gifford for the convenience of the'  ratepayers "  Prof. Charles Hill-Tout, "a candidate for the reeveship, explained  the charge that had been made again  st him in regard to spending money  illegally .on the' Brown road while  he was tax collector. He gave' a  detailed statement of how the money had been spent. He thought the  municipality should' be run on . a  more economical basis and cited'  several* cases in; which he thought  money had been spent in a wasteful  manner.  Councilor J. Melander, a candidate for "re-election for Ward I. was  in favor of a road supervisor, if  the right man could be .secured,  would make the tax assessment -as  early as possible-..  Mr. Philip Jackman, a    candidate  for Ward I. would be careful in the  spending  of   the- money.    Endeavor  .to get a temporary loan.   l Wanted  good roads.  Coun. Geo.

J.Marsh, candidate for  Wardll. thought he could save  money for the ward.  Councillor Henry Frederickson,  for Ward III. A square deal to all  was his motto.-  Councillor Chas. Bell, retiring  spoke briefly giving an account of  the work accomplished during his  torm of office.  Mr. Alex. Cruickshank, chairman  of the school board, at the close of  the meeting, spoke in regard to the  taxation of property in the municipality.    He  made     the     assertion  suing 'year .were elected, also the  directors.,' Mr. John Howes'was appointed a delegate to represent the  institute at the convention held at  Victoria on January 26, 27 and 28,  while John A. Nash was appointed  to attend as'a delegate to the B. C.  Agricultural Association at Victoria  also late in January. The secretary read a letter from the Department of Agriculture regarding oat  seed, and its distribution this'spring  subject to the following conditions:  through the secretary of th.e Farmers' Institute, to which -the application , belongs: (2)the seed oats will  be distributed to all members of the  Farmers' Institute at the actual cost  of'the seed, plus the transportation  charges, except as hereinafter provided; (3) the .department Avill pay  the transportation charges on seed  oats supplied to members whose order is acompanied-by an entry for  the crop competition in oats for  1914, provided that the institute to  'which "the,'applicant' belongs-complies with the.- conditions for the  holding of crop L competition " forms  for applicatioin for seeed oats and  being supplied to the ��������� secretary and"  may be obtained from him; (4)only*  the* actual owner, renter, or sup-j .

There, is sure every reason  for  complaint,   using  very, vigorous  language too,  provided it -would  do  any good���������In fact the street between  the two tracks is a disgrace to the  company and the town, and  that is -  drawing  it mildly..  True the company do fix it occasionally, but somehow it' does not  last very long in a'passable condition  There is apparently too much traffic on the'street for the cinders, to  hold up. ' It has been suggested, and  very wisely too, that either crushed  rock or gravel be placed between .  the two. tracks,' and preferably the  former.  The board of trade is taking the  matter up with the local agent, Mr.  Boulter, and it is to be hoped that  he will be so able to'impress the  authorities that be, the importance  of having some.permanent substance  placed-t.on "the street that will be  lasting, and at an early date.  Of course the board of trade as an  incorporate body, have the right' to  take the matter before the railway  commission, but it. is much better to  'do it'through the local ageatrif at'all-:  possible.

The crop is inspected in  the field and again in the sack, before receiving the official seal of the  department. The department expects to be. able to deliver the oats  at about $1 per bushel. A resolut -  ion was passed to the effect that all  orders must be accompanied by 50  per cent., or half the cost, when  the oats were ordered,and- the balance when delivered,x also that they  must be removed after the customary ten days' notice or Jthe party  will forfeit his deposit.

A letter was then read from the  International Lime Co., Sumas Wash  in regard to price, quality and offering to deliver the same at Alder-  grove station for $18 per ton. Another letter of a similar nature from  the Victoria and Vancouver Lime  Co., was read and the difference in  quality and merit led to a lengthy  discussion after which it was resolved to patronize the Sumas company and that a car of the same be  that many corporations were not being taxed at all  The meting, which was attended by about, 2 00 ratepayers, was  presided by Mr. J.

Friday,   Jan. 17,  J914  The Democratic principle of misting to the people is wise, and there  are now fe wwriters or speakers so  egregiously self-cornplacent' as to sug  gest that they should themselves dir  ect   public  questions  and  that    the  people  aretoo  ignorant    to  conduct  their own  affairs.  It  seems like offering gratuitous advice to the intelli  gence  of   the   citizens   to   tell   them  $10   has  the  same  purchasing power in Kamioops as $25 has in larger  cities, or to declare that not .one in  larger cities, or. to  declare that not  one ni a hundred of the ratepayers  has   sufficient  ability  to   peruse  the  civic balance sheet    with    anything  like understanding.    The ratepayers  of Kamioops are the people who finance   Kamioops  and   they  are  fully  entitled to know how the city finances  stand;   and  if  a     city    balance  sheet is so drafted as to be unintelligible  to   the  people   it  is  not  because    of    any    mental    deficiency  of the citizens, as is implied in some  lack -of  ability  on   the  part  of  the  members  or  of  the   auditors  or  of  both, or alternatively a desire enter-  . tained by .these parties to withhold  information is responsible for the  obscurity. The suggestion that rate  payers should provide money but  that. they should not be furnished  with a financial statement because  they are too unintelligent to understand it is adbsurd; offensive, and in'  consistent "with facts, and those responsible for fthe preparation and  timely issue of the civic balance  sheet-for   the  year   just-ended  are  . to be congratulated on producing a  document  clearer  and  more    easily  ��������� intelligible than any of the same nature furnished' in the    past.���������Kamioops Sentinel.

Very important is the matter  of personal liberty, and the rights of  the   individual.    The   highest   religious teachings preach the doctrine of  free will."

Speaking  of    the  "foreign       peril"  which threatens to eventua lly force  native-born Canadians to seek a livelihood, else where than in fair Canada  of ours, the    News-Telegram    says:'  "But  for  those  foreign  races  crime  would- be   down  to  a  minimum  instead   of   gradually  climbing   to     a  maximum,  shooting   . and     stabbing  would play a very insignificant part  amongst criminal offences, and robberies   would   be-less    in     number.

At the public meeting .held "in  Mission City during the recent election, it was,, pointed out by a prominent fruit grower that the Japanese are quietly and without any big  sound of trumpets, taking possession  of the richest of t he fruit land of'  Silverdale, and thus competing with  the white man on the markets.

Marine Railway Works at Esquimault, and that the Dominion govern  ment would, in consequence, proceed to build a dry dock in the same  locality, the Colonist would lead its  readers to believe that Victoria practically coralled the whole works so  far as British naval defences on the  Pacific are concerned.

Ad1  mitting that no one has a right to  get drunk if by so doing he is ob-  jectional to his family or to the community, everyone has the' right to  buy himself a drink if he is paying  for it. We believe that more harm  can be done by the distribution of  bad whiskey in twelve hours than  in twenty-four where proper supervision regarding the quality of the  liquor and the conduct of the premises  obtains.    If  further  steps  be  " necessary in the interests of the  people that less liquor be consumed  let us have further deliberations before we take action. We presume  that the W. C. T.
