Mr. Towlan, like Joe Martin  has. got into the habit of running and can't keep away from it.  It has simply got to be,' perhaps not every year but often enough  to let. the-municipality-know-that he is still in the land of the  living and just as full of, life* as ever. In days gone by he was  reeve and made? a. good one, many of the ratepayers, will tell  ��������� you Councillor Melander lives in the south western part oi  -the ward and thought of retiring-this year af ter -along, length  of service as councillor, for ward four. Notwithstanding- the  fact that he has given good service, some mischievous person  - started to' create a wrong impression oi the work that Mr. Me.-  ander had done. Mr. Melander had at that time told many ol  the ratepayers that he would retire ths year. Thus to deiena  his good public name Mr. Melander decided to run for reeve just  to show that he would not be turned' down in his own ward as  a public man. He has no other grievance other than wrong  report and if elected would do well as reeve for he has always  acted as a loyal citizen and .true'public servant.

New houses in. Abbotsford would  undoubtedly be a good investment,  even with building material at the  present prices, for the town is sure  to warrant the building of many  more houses in the very .near future.  HAD A SUCCESSFUL YEAR  It is -refreshing, to know that a  church in any -small community has  had a successful; year financially, and  that the minister's salary has been  raised/the lattoi'-: especially during  these times of-.high prices.  The-annual meeting of the Presbyterian church was held in the church  on Thursday evening when the financial statement-for the year was read,  showing that there was in the treasury some $104, although the year  had started with a deficit of about  $50. The amount of money spent  during the year was not stinted lor  quite large amounts have been spent  in various ways.  So pleased were the management  with the trend of affairs that the  minister's salary was given a substantial raise, dating from last Apru.  long period or puuuc seivicc iw  widim^wi^.v.,, ��������� ~   _   and reeve he will probably win hands down, as his services have  government's assistance  7 ,.'  .,. _x  xt.5 i~  ���������t i\/To������lQ TJirlo-o  nnnrpp.iatfi.

Miss Dortliy Patton, is the guest of  Mr. and Mrs. Boyd in Vancouver.  She is unable to use her foot yet and  Vancouver will be a change-for her.  Mr. McDurmit passed away on  Saturday, after having his foot amputated a few days before for gan-  gerine. Mr. McDurmit was-.ninety-  one years of age, and has been in B.  C. many years.  Mr. Jack Aiken's brother whom he  has been expecting, arrived on Saturday morning.  Mrs. and Miss Lamb returned to  their home in Vancouver on Sunday  afternoon, after two weeks' holidays  in .Abbotsford. Mrs. Lamb will resume her duties as te.icher in South  Vancouver.  The Misses Stesde returned home  on Tuesday after two weeks' in Pert  Alberni-and'White Rock.

It will be election of  LICENCES  ISSUED ONLY  BRITISH SUBJECTS IN FUTURE  It has ben decided that no further-  licenses for salmon canneries, or salmon seining and trap net fishing,  shall be issued to other than resident  British subjects of the white race, oi  to joint stock companies composed  entirely of such persons. And it has  further been decided that in future  the number of gil net and troling  licences issued to other than white  men or native Indians shall not exceed the total number issued during  the past season. This is the change  which particularly affects the Fraser  River district. In plain English it  means that the Japanese will be unable to get more fishing licences than  thoy had last season.  The Great War Veterans are having a series of whist drives every  Wednesday and Saturday- evenings;  and every second Friday the W. A.  will have a whist drive and dance,  alternating with the W. A. of bt.  Matthews church.  PREDICTS St CENT EGj38  Wholesalers predict that eggs will  decline to 35 cents per dozen in the  near future, says the Columbian.  There are at least 10,000 more chickens in the province than there were  at this time last year. It is also  stated that the hens are laying decidedly well at the pesent time, and  the eason why the pricj has been kept  up is that the importations from the  United States have not been so heavy  as is usually the case. British Columbia 'will soon be able to supply  its/home ma rket with eggs without  the necessity of importing if the price  of chicken feed eases up.  Opposition to Hie daylight saving  scheme and also to any proposed  change in the rule of the road was  'voiced at the annual meeting of tno  Matsqui Farmers' Institute held on  December 29th in the municipal hall  at Mt.

L'HJKlNCi THE TOtf'KIST CROl* IN. BJtlTISII COLUMBIA  The Stale'oi" California through its.good'roads is reported  ' Lo bo getting annually from the tourist traffic' very large a-  niounts; even the city of Vancouver announces that it- har.  had' a tourist traffic in 1919 that has netted the city' some  $3,000,000. It is also stated that at Blaine 8,925 motor cars  carrying some 34,204 people passed through Blaine for B. .C  Each one: of these tourists must carry with them a cash value  when they visit our province.,  Tourist money is easy money and-good money at the same  time and something should be.done! to induce tourists to come  to our province in motor cars. The one big inducement that  we have in 13; C. is scenery, and that does not need any repairs  each year for up-keep^ if anything it improves, for we who  live in the province, no matter how long, never tire, of looking, at Mt. Baker, the Lions, or any other mountain peaks,  that come into view. Who would tire looking at some oi  the beauties of the Fraser canyon, no matter how often we  passed up and .down the river,'and especially beautiful, would  it be in a motor car. Further up country in the Selkirks ano  the Rockies the beauties of an early morning sun or a sunset are never forgotten. It. may be said of our scenery that  it is a beauty and a joy to every person who may view it.  Granted that" the scenery, of the Province of British Columbia is not excelled in .any other part of America, does it  not seem a kind of selfish that we should try to keep it to  ourselves. . The C. P. R. has advertised the beauties of our mountains for decades with most excellent results; but the modern  way to see the grandeur and beauty of the Pacific Slope is by  motor car. California, with its .limited scenery realizes this  and so does Oregon and Washington. But does our province';  It is up to British Columbia to make'this'scenery accessible for motor cars and with this object in view it is necessary  to have a road from West to East and East to West in the province. , Survey work has been carried on over the Hope Mountains and. up the Fraser Canyon with a view to having a road.  If it is a scenic route that the tourists want, then the only feasible route to the interior of the province is through the Fraser  Canyon, and it is likely that our government realizes this as  the word is being passed around that that road will be built first.  Once in the Interior the beauties of the Okanagan will not suffer. It speaks for itself. There is also talk of linking up. the  City of Revelstoke with Golden���������through the- sea of. mountains.  The Western Motorist appears to think this is feasible, and  outlines the road then to Windermere, thence to Banff and  on to Calgary.    What a wonderful route for scenery?  Renewed activity for boosting for good roads from West to  East should be started and-carried out during 1920.  Dr;GwA.Pollard  Dentist  -"-- ������������������' n mmt hum  P. R. is to come to vote in the City on Vancouver at the  election this week. It is claimed by the boosters of P. R.  that they vote that way in Ireland. One Ireland like the present  should be enough for the British Empire.  What has become of the old-fashioned dealer who used to  present his customers with a wall calendar at the first of the  year.���������Province.  The leader of the Canadian Liberal party will visit the  coast, at the end of this month. Maybe he is coming to the  coast to consult some of the local enthusiasts about the introduction of the P. R. system.  .It is claimed for the P. R. that it is entirely against party  government and in that case it should be tabooed. Party government is perhaps the best system yet brought into existence.  It has its failings of course, and so would any system. British  Columbia has had fewer elections since the party system has  been introduced into the province.  Vote for the Cold Storage- Bylaw and put the district ahead  ten years with one fell swoop.  TALKING OF GOING BACK TO Till-] WARD SYSTEM  While Mission Municipality is trying to get away from the  ward system Ihe Maple Ridge councillors have decided to place  before the people the option of retaining the no ward system or  the wards. Wise people do not all agree, nor do they always  agree, so that it is hard to tell which system is the best���������electing' a council at large, or according to the wards. It will be interesting to note what the people of Maple Ridge do.  ..M'RNS TltAJXIXtt FARM  H.

Tourist Traffic From The States  The popularity of the Pacific Highway for tourists is rapidly growing,  and the motor traffic this year promises to sot. a new record. The figures available show that, during t.'ie  past live .months a total of 8,1)25  motor cars entered British Columbia  from Ihe State of Washington. The  number of passengers totalled 3iJ.-  2(54. The. record by month follows:  '-���������April 872 cars and 3,Of>G passengers; May .1,109 and 5,720; June,  1,370 and 4,996; July, 2,(551 and 9,-  986; August 2,473 and 10,506; total  8,925 and 34,264.���������Motorist.  Were there a good road on the  north side of the Fraser river from  Vancouver to Mission City and -a  bridge across the Fraser, it is likely  a lot of these tourists would have returned home by way of Surnas instead of Blaine.

This head-dress j  is topped with a huge bunch of "aig-j  rette" plumes. |  What could be more suitable for a|  MISSION CITY  ited States,' they will be slaughtered  elsewhere in th.'air range as long aa  their plumes are in demand in the  feather market and this demand .is  created by the. use of their plumes  lor millinery purposes.  The plume-hunter visits the. 'nesting ground of the snowy heron, or  of the egret, as the birds grow these  plumes only during the nesting season and kills the old birds as they return to feed the young ones .in tho  nest. The young aro left to starve  and the plume hunter, -af'tor cutting  the "osproy" or "algrot.to"-' plumes  from the parent bird, leaves its beautiful body to rot in the swamp where  it made its home, while he pursues  his bloody course. ..

What woman in  Canada wishes to follow his style and  flaunt similar plumes before the eyes  of many who know the story of the  egret. '  In case the reader has never heard  the reason for calling in egret plumes  the German badge of cruelty, a little  of the sordid story is told. Some  of the most beautiful species of  birds on this continent have been reduced to a piteous remnant to provide these plumes. The species which  have suffered most in North America  to provide the "aigrette" plumeB of  commerce have been the Egret and  the iS.nowy. Egret, which is also called  the Snowy Heron. Both species .are  believed to wander northward after  the breeding season and have been  recorded from several of the provinces of Canada in the late summer.  These beautiful travellers might be  more numerous and of more than  accidental occurrence in the north if  these two species had not disappeared as breeding birds in the middle  United States. If wo suppose that  the'bird, which occur occasionally in*  Canada, came north from the most,  northern rookeries were in New Jersey or Wiet.'onsjn.

Roads, good roads  uid plenty of them provide the answer to that sort of arithmetic.  How to get these roads is the problem that 'Samuel Hill is devoting a  life time to discovering. "There are  only two things in road building,"  be told the Vancouver Automobile  Olub. "These are specifications and  inspection. "Cerlainly these are only  two things,but they include the whole  science of road making. On his farm  \t Maryhill in the State .of Washington, Mr. Hill had constructed, samples of all kinds of roads made with  all varieties of materials, and here  we see the beginning of 4he kind of  road school that he and all others  interested in the science- want to see  founded. "They have voted $300,-  000,000 at Washington this year for  roads," said Mr. Hiil.J'and practically all of this money will be wasted  You-ve got to teach them how to  build roads first before' you begin to  spend money on building them."  It is not a cheap process, this  learning to build roads.

'This is the spirit.of tho man who  is president of the Pacific Highway  Association, the man who wants to  celebrate the tenth anniversary of  ihe forming of this association with  tlie inauguration of a peace arch  en the ���������lnt-ornational border''between  .British Columbia and the State of  Washington that will serve for evar  in memory of the unbroken century  of peace between Canada and the  United States, and to mark the conclusion of the world peace at Versailles which was fought for by the  sons of both countries.  Samuel Hill is a lawyer by profession, became a railroad president  through the circumstances of having  a t.atlier-in-law with more railroads  than he could manage' himself, and  ho is a pathfinder and road builder  by reason of his recognition of the  ovc'ipowcring importance of easy  communications for the well being  of communities. He is a seer inasmuch as he looks far into the future  but he is no dreamer because his  visions are based upon a knowledge  cf the main facts and circumstances  that guide the channels of the trade  of   tho  world.     He., takes  the  whole  ���������coupled '��������� with ��������� the world's demands,  will inevitably bring about.  ' Those are the reasons for roads  considered only as highways for  commerce and agriculture. There are  other overwhelming reasons of peculiar force to those of us who livu  in the scenic province of the Dominion that are of no less weight,  "Scenery is the one great national  asst that costs nothing to develop  or maintain-,' Mr. Hill says. He  preacher from this text in Japan  with such force that in the course  of a short visit there ho was induced  to outline for the government a  scheme whereby a small automobile  tax would be devoted entirely to  road construction. The bringing  Into existence of a number of good  roads where none existed before  would quadruple the number of automobiles in use, sufficient to provide  for the capital expenditure on the  roads and Japan would have capitalized her scenery for all time at no  expense to the general public which  would reap the benefit.  ""The finest crop that California  ever raised was the tourist crop,"  Is another of Mr. Hill's aphorisms  when speaking of roads as a moans  to view scenery. "I told my friends  in the south that' their state was divided into two portions, one of which  should be called California and the  other Cafeteria," said Mr. Hill, refer-  nothing-arid learn nothing| They  were dealing with different problems  which must be solved on. the ground.  There are only a few principles which  can be taught, the rest must "be learned by- expensive experimentation.  The Columbia Highway,"' great as its  success has been, Mr. Hill regards in  the light of a. big experiment which  has taught him how to do better.  Mr. Hill preaches two big principles which involve entire departures from acepted canons of' road  building as practisad on this continent. "Make your road fit your grade  do not waste money making your  grade fit .your road," is one of his  principles. "Longitudinal and vertical curvature are; essential to a road  , that will give the best service and  I provide the greatest wear," is another, both of them radical, departures from the accepted principle in  North America which says that the  best road 's the straightest and the  most level road.  ���������'Providing that proper' care is  taken to secure i^ibili*":/ throughout  its U'Pj;ili, the road .i.'iat do >'j not  follow a straight line, but which  is laid in a constant succession of  .curves, is the best road," says Mr.  Kill, and he demonstrated the theorem in a manner which left his audience convinced, but startled, to see  one of their cherished beliefs go  down to destruction.  For many years yet \ve shall still  have to provide for a certain amount  of horse drawn traffic. The horse  will have his uses in agriculture for  some time to come. The road which  does not have any big grades, but is  not level throughout its. length, is a  better road than the one built without any grades." That was the statement of another theorem that momentarily dazed his hearers. When  he appealed to the experience of any  in the audience who had ever ridden  a bicycle they realized that Mr. Hill's  argument was altogether on the side  of the horses who have to pull the  loads. ���������/������������������''.  "I could die happy' if I saw two  things," said Mr. Hill. One is the  building of roads on a series of  curves, and the other the placing of  culverts obliquely to the direction of  the road." Here again the paper and  pencil came into play and his audience saw the value of Mr. Hill's  proposed improvement for easier  riding and less wear on vehicles.  From  British  Columbia to Mexico  Mr. Hill is dreaming of the longest  single- highway   in   the  world,     the  Pacific  Highway, and if he can get  some of his principles learned in the  course of nearly half a century    of  road   building   carried   out   on   this  highway,  then  his  road  school  will  have some of the credit for the demonstration.    "I would sooner   have  this  road  than  two  railroads,"  said  Samuel    Hill,   railroad    president.���������  Wetern  Canadian Motorist, Vancouver, B. C.  Alexandria Hote.
