SUMAS COUNCIL  U) >[.��������� Residence Phone  ._    William Porter waited on the Su-  . mas  Council at its  last meeting on  ^ Saturday last and advised that body  " that'-'at^ would be necessary to raise  the price of lots in the cemetery, in  order to'make that institution self-  s.ustain'ing.jfv-.Reeve Fooks      expressed" feaf-'-t'liat-^such   a   course  would  - make-dying- still    more    unpopular.  The reeve  was  of  the  opinion   that  the high cost of  living worried the  people   enough,   without, increasing  the cost of dying.    The price of lots  in  the  cemetery  was  set  at  twenty  dollars,  or five dollars  for a single  grave,  which - is  an  increase  of  one  hundred per cent.  Discussing   depredations   committed by bad boys in the municipality  took up some of the council's time.  It was stated that the worst set or  boys  out  of   captivity,   Ayere   to   be  ���������found   here.       Instances   of  stoning  driving  horses   on   the  higwhay,   of  driving  cows  away   from   home;   of  the 'ruination of fruit trees;  robbing  trunks  in a private residence;   and,  when  caught  in  the  act  of  tearing  ���������up a garden in revenge for some of  the   pranks   with   which   the   rising  ���������generation   of   Sumas   was   charged.  The parents of the boys complained  of  will   be  notified  that  no   further  'leniency  will   be  extended   to   those  boys,   whose  acts   of  mischief .   and  vandalism  have  become  unbearable.  \\\ F. Fadden addressed the council and drew attention to the mosquito breeding waterholes alongside the  ���������B. C. E. It. adjoining his property  Mr. Fadden statedt hat he would undertake to put the oil out to kill off  the pest if the company would provide the oil. The company will be  advised of Mr. Fadden's offer.  John Murphy waited on the council and asked that body to settle  a little difference of opinion bteween  himself and a neighbor named G.  Cox regarding a roadway which runs  between their respective properties.  This road has been gazetted but  never declared open and Mr. Murphy  stated that Mr. Cox was at che present time cropping the road vay and  asked permission to run a fence a-  long the centre of the roadway and  to bo allowed to make use of his  half of the road until such time as  the council decided tod eclare the  road open. The council explained  that they did not have the power to  issue such a permit. All they could  do was to declare tho road open, and  this would prevent either party.from  icropping, the roadway. Mr. Cox,  ���������who was not present, was called on  the phone and said he was unable  to attend the meeting. He wa3 advised thatt he council was about to  declare the road open and replied  that he had no objection to offer.  Mr. Murphy however objected as lie  claimed that this would compel him  to fence his properly while Mr. Cox  whose ground is uncultivated would  escape this expense. The council instructed the clerk to notify both  parties that the road would be declared open in sixty days. The total amount of land involved is one-  sixte entht of an acre.

MATSQUI COUNCIL  A number of delegations from different .parts of the municipality Availed on the council at the regular  meeting of that body which was held  here on Monday and asked that road  work be undertaken, in some cases repairs to existing roads were asked for while in other cases the request was for the opening of new  roads. A well' signed petition asking that repairs be made ':o the A-  berdeen road wa salso presented.  The respective ward councillors will  visit each of these roads and the  council will do its utmost, with the  money available, to satisfy the applicants.  It is admitted thai the taxes of the  municipality will have to be raised  considerably in order to meet the  demands for roads. It is estimated  that the value recoived from the  money spent on roads has shrunk  fully 75 per cent in live years, that  $100 now spent on roads does not  stand up more than . half as long,  so that it requires .$'100 to now accomplish  what  $25 did formerly.  Wni Merrifield waited on the  council and asked compensation for  damage to properly, caused through  taking out gravel. He stated that  a hole had been made in the face of  the property which made" it impossible to run a straight fence along  it and that this will get worse as  the earth falls in from time to time  lie asked $50 damages and Conn.  Aish will meot Mr. W.. Merrifield on  Thursday night and try to arrnage a  settlement.  Conn. Aish reported that the people of Mission City and disi-rict were  a unit in endorsing the proposal to  ���������plank the C. P. ft. bridge at that  fie. A number of compet-mt me;i  have examined the bridge and approaches and measured the clear inside width of bridge and these men  claim that instead of the proposition not being feasible, as claimed  by toll provincial government it is  extremely simple. It is fell that the  C. P. It. would not raise serious on  jeetion as thai company would nol  only be getting a rental for use of  bridge, but thai tins convenience  would increase settlement and pro-  'duction along iho company's line  'The concensus of opinion in the district seems to he that, the reason the  provincial government threw cold  ...writer on the suggestion is because it.  came from the outside and putting  it into effect would not bring any  political.'credit' to Oliver's .fossiliers.  The clerk was instructed to ask the  municpal solicitor what steps it ii  necessary to take to have this case  laid before the Dominion Railway  Com mission.  Maple Ridge  However ardently the ������������������pvo'perl/  owners of Haney may desire ne.v  'sidewalks, if. is manifest .their ardor  draws the line at paying for them  under the local improvement process  On Friday only one ratepayer polled  in favor of the Haney Sidewalks Bylaw under the local improvement  procedure,   thirteen   againts   it   and  there was one spoilt ballot. A. total  of lifteen exercised their franchise  out of a total directly interested of  si v"Mity-six. The result was . un-  d'Hibiedly surprising as allowing for  tho busy fruit harvesting, indifference and misplaced optimism that it.  would go through anyhow, a considerable'proportion of the ratepayers  witiiin the Haney area had announced their intention of suppr.rling the  measure. The council receved the  report of tho jF.iurning officer, Mr. V  Pilerson cr. Saturday at then- month,  ly meeting "M'th equanimity. Councillor Adair observed with a touch of  chagrin that the bjlaw went out j.J e  Jess "Willard.  The council appointed Mr. AV. T.  Roberts assessor for the property  roll of 19 20 at a fee of $5 00. There  v-ore three applicants and a paramount qualification, over another  candidate, was that Mr. Roberts is a  returned' soldier, besides possea.-sing  the necessary commendations and a-  Igreeing to visit every parcel of land  in the municipality for assessment  purposes.  There were no tenders received for  the construction of the Whonnock  Creek bridge which was promised by  the preceding council and endorsed  by tiie present one. This.apathy in  the minds- of potential bridge builders of Whonnock tempted Councillor  Best to advance the suggestion that  perhaps his constituents there might  prefer to have the allotted money expended on reads.  Councillor Lilley said he had received a letter from ex-Councillor  oproule urging expedition in the mat  ter. He had driven a gentleman over to the site last week to look at  the proposition, but he had not said  whether he would tender-or not. The  man was a competent bridge builder  but suffered at present from physical  injuries.  It was ultimately agreed that the  time for receiving tenders should be  extended another month and. that in  the meantime Councillor Best would  invite a definite expression of opinion  from the residents of the interested  district upon his alternative suggestion.  After reading the monthly reports  of the police magistrate and Constable Pope, the latter observed thai  the concurrence of the attorney-general had been invoked for the prosecution of Sunday fruit gatherers.  He informed the council however,  '.hrd. the Dominion fruit inspector  was frankly adverse to prosecution  for picking or conveying to market.  There was a feeling of relief that  i he responsibility was on the shoulders of  the attorney-general now.  In consequence of a written complaint from Mr. W. M. Webster that  the work on St. Anne's street had  cost double what it should, the council visited and personally inspected  it.    Councillor Adair excepted.  On their return it was evident  there was justification in the protest  for much dissatisfaction was .^pressed at the time spent in the work or  its equivalent in dollars. Councillor  Lilley was also dissatisfied with the  work in his beat. Councillors specifically responsible for the beats  whero the dissatisfaction exists  will endeavor to rectify matters as  far as the road work is concerned.  A correspondence with the public  works department, Victoria, and  Messrs Parrott & Gustafson, Hammond farmers, revealed the fact  the farmers had been in negotiation with the wrong department.  They should have communicated  with the dyking commissioners. Water accumulated and damaged their  land and prevented their using Melville street. The council agreed io  transmit  the  correspondence   to  the  chauiago and dyking commissioners  aud undertook to' make tho, road  conditionally upon tho commissioners attending. to tho ditch Involved  and draining the road of water  it was pointed out thai the farmers  .represented ,had paid road .and dying  'luxes for' years without'benefit.  Mr, McFaddcn, who recently purchased the Lock wood, property or  n GO acres, about a mile westerly  from Webstor's Corners elicited tire  sjuiputhy of the council in his isolation through lack of a road,, Mr.  McFadden was paying $'liiO taxes  tli.s year and was under contract,  to pay $779, Councillor Lillcy's appropriations had been allocated and  the work would cost $500 to do effectively. Tho reeve urgod a temporary relief to Mr .cFadden and a  special appropriation of $H'0 found  favor, although no definite resolul-  on  was passed.  A communication from the secretary of the 13. C.

The excessive speed of auto drivers in,Hammond and Haney has become a danger as well as a. nuisance  and henceforth the speed within  these township areas will be restricted to ten miles an hour under penalties.  A. number of municipal bylaws  were reconsidered and finally passed  which have already been given publicity.  Constable Pope conducted a party  representing an imperial soliders'  settlement board over the municipality on Thursday, a British imperial oilicor, a Canadian army officer, a botanist and other experts  were in the party. A visit was made  to the different sections of land  ranging from the primeval forest  to.the highly cultivated fruit ranches  poultry and dairy farms.
