At the enquiry "recently,, facts jfrere  divulged which showed to wha^'. extent the expense of ..overhead was  kept up in connection with the Game  Bbard, and this is only one of the  -minor - departments. Game Warden  Mcintosh' swore that he had been  Bent-into the Williams Lake district  to buy skins from the Indians.at not  to exceed $5 per skin, but that-while  there, one Qeschelt, a fur ., dealer's  representative also working in connection with the Baker skip, game,  .brought in .to him .100 .skins for  .which'he paid $7.50 or$9.50 apiece.  That.he was on the -payroll of .the  Game Conservation Board for a considerable period-lsat.year, being paid  partly, by .Government . cheque ��������� and  partly in cashi-by Dr. Baker,-,was the  testimony of B.

Council Cleans Up  Outstanding Matters  To be "off with the old and on  with the new" was' the urgent aim of  the Matsqui Council on Thursday _at  Mt.  Lehman. Accounts,    hx-laws  and contracts were finally closed,  with fey/ loose ends to be inherited  by the' hew council.  The government-gift from the liquor traffic raised-a quandary in'Us  disposal/ If half was to go to schools  and half to^ hospitals, and hospital  grants and accounts had been all paid  up, could the moiety be placed o'se-  where? ' This will bo the pi en sing  concern of the new ' council.  A curious case ot mistaken identity or confusion of names was revealed by (he clerk in the communications.  A Mr.'Cleary of Arnprlor, On.tauo,  wrote that his son. John Joseph  Cleary,' was'killed at Quatsino', B. C.  on October 2.r>, 19 2,1, and that his son  owned ten acres of valley land somewhere near Bradner. The father  sought'particulars of the'property.  But as Mr. Cleary of Bradner paid  tho taxes-himself on this .properly in  December, and is- still known around  Bradner, there is room'to surmise  that someone has blundored.  The reeve thanked the retiring  council for their courtesy and loyalty, complimented them on tho harr  .mony and goodwill "shown throughout their deliberations and hoped  their interest in matters municipal  would continue.  He, stated "IliaI iho 'contract for  Wiring the prairie had now boon let  definitely by the H..C. W..1"*., and  light would be available- shortly.  ���������  Ah the two new councillors are  both former members, gopd business  is expected of tho new board.   * .  The question of Councillor Keay's  qualification was raised before he  took' his "seat, but he was quite prepared for the .criticism.  The fact of his running a .mail  route did not, in his opinion, constitute a disqualification. It was not  a civil -service appointment, but a  contract,- and he,was -not even' the  principal contractor this year, as the  agreement had been sub-let to .him.  Taking the-oath of office in Mats-j  qui Council is an impressive occasion, j  as reeve and councillors, ' standing, j  repeat the oath in unison, led by the i  clerk.;       . .  .    .   ��������� , I  The first v business named by the I  reeve  -was the    appointment of.   .the  whole'council ,���������as board of works  and Councillor Gledhill, chairman of  finances, for the year. ,,  Municipal Clerk LeFevre was ' reappointed to his office at a> monthly  salary''of. $115, councill deciding to  call for tenders for the office of assessor and assistant clerk, with duties to he specified in the advertisement.''-������ .  Mr. A. E. Humphreys of Chilliwack was- re-appointed municipal engineer- under ��������� similiar arrangements  as heretofore.  The council will journey to Clayburn on Saturday, January 28, to inspect the ravages of Kelly Creek and  discuss protection operations with  the engineer and manager of the  Clayburn  Brick Company.  -On the same day they will investigate the claim of adjoining owners  to a strip of land alongside the Riverside Road. A petition received asks  that the council renounce their' interest "in this strip which was left by  a difference in survey lines.  A well-signed petition from Matsqui village, asking for ? street lights  and a concrete sidewalk on St. Olaf  street..was favorably received and arrangements will lie1 made by , by-law  for this work to be done by by-law  Local ^Improvement Act, spreading  the cost over three years.':     "'   ...

CLAYBURN DBFWATS  LOCAL ELEVEN  (From Fraser Valley Record)  Mission dropped another gamo of  foot ball last Saturday when they  came out on tho short end of the  score, 3 to 1    at Clayburn.  Mission scored for -the first .minute of play wlion Hamilton put' in  a beautiful shot which completely  beat the Clayburn goal keeper. Clayburn soon evened up and before half  time had a lead of t'wo goals. Gib-  bard was hurt in this half arid had  to retire for the rest of the game.  Dave Galliford also was forced to  leave for part of the .first half but  came back and played,a good game in  the second half.  The second period saw ?������Ilssion determined to do better-and forced the  play all tiie way, but could not tally,'  and'the end found the, score the same  as at half time.  The Mission boys rely mainly -on  speed and" combination to win a  game and tiie ground- at Clayburn  was anything but ideal for their style  of game and consequently they lost.  Laniont turned out for Mission 'and  played a good game on the defense.  Glbbard was good until he was hurt,  and it Is hoped'his ; tfnkle will' not  keep'him out of-future games.
