At least  twenty-lour hours' notice should be  given in such casus; and tho council  was asked to co-operate in the matter, as danger and expensive delay  was due in many canes to non-observance of this requirement,  tle-m.  It was decid ;d to enforce the  pound regulations as affecting horses  in' future, this decision ���������being' the  "outcome of complaints regarding the  danger and��������� damage done��������� by straying  horses in tho municipality.  The recommendation iu favor of  .'Peter Grant being, made a .1. P. is  held in abeyance owing to (.he -absence from' Victoria of the Attorney-  General, the council was informed by  a   letter  from   Victoria.'  The C..N. Railway authorities/who  had been requested.to put in a siding  at- Rottluff road crossing, wrote declining to agree to that request.  Their letter stated that, as the crossing'referred to was only a little over  ouo mile from the station at Matsqui they could not see their way to  go to the expense of putting in another siditig in such a close proximity  to a regular station.  A bylaw to regulate the speed of  automobile  traffic  in   the  municipality   was   paw.-'.'Ml.   It   provides   for   a |  maximum   speed     of   2T������   miles   per ;  per   hour   on   main   gravelled   roads, '  and 15 miles on all other roads.  On May 24th a party, of Ridgedale  people wore the guests of Messrs'. J.  Saunders and C. Farr on a motor  boat picnic to Sumas lake. Two boats  carrying about 4 5 persons left the  landing at 9 a. m. with Capt. Kelle-  her at the wheel of the leading craft.  The weather man favored the day  with his best goods and the sail up  the river and lake weremost delightful. All were ready for the picnic  dinner which was spead on Spoon  Island, after which the party moved  to the head of the lake where there  was a delightful picnic ground.  Games W'ere engaged in bysome of  the younger people, while many of  the gentlemen were busy with hook  and line. A slight shower slightly  shortened the day of sport. Laden  with wild flowers and thespoil of the  day, the return trip was made in less  than two hours, a choppy sea on the  lake adding  to  the excitement.  All agreed that a most enjoyable  day had been spent and that Claude  and Johnny were "jolly good fellows."

Published Every Friday  JS. A. Bates, Editor and Proprietor.,  FRIDAY  JUNE  4,   192 0  The head oi' our provincial government., he, who can do no  wrong, politically, accompanied by one oi' his right-hand men is  to tour the country in the interests of his party, it looks absolutely nothing more.than a real campaign trip, it was not done  last year,nor the year before, but now that an election is near ing  the people are to be camouflaged into think thai the Oliver government has the interests of the people at heart. And a trip now  looks to be just right. They will speak at different points in the'  southern part of (he province. The people will be told many  things that if would be interesting to hear, and'of course absolutely correct, for our premier, with such a. record of correct doings, should have something of interest to fell the peoph'.\ Sc  much has ben done for the province (?) during the past years of  the war, in making the (axes light and a. generous (?) voting of  monies for public works, that the heels of ihe provincial government ought to receive a grand reception.  For once this paper agrees with Premier John Oliver and  thinks he is absolutely right when he sends word to the agent-  general, at London that he should not talk baclv to Cowper���������n.  other words that a civil servant of the province should, not enter  into a press controversary with or to criticise a member of par-  liaivenr, who has had anything to do with his appointment.' Th������  agei-rc-general is nothing more nor nothing less than a civi:  servant of the B. C. government; and why should he attempt tr  bite the hand that helps to feed him?  On the other hand why should not a member of parliament  take into consideration the wish of the electors who-have placet"  him there? But then that is different the member of parliaments only a servant of the people until such time as the last vote if  cast. If elected, from that time on-the member takes it that h*  is a free lance, and chats back to electors should they at all differ with him on any matter that .affects their welfare���������just the  way Premier John does himself .  TROUBLES OP T1TR  PHONE OPERATOR  When business men convene meetings to prciss for improved telephone  service and newspapers publish many  paragraphs about the way in which  things telephonic are to be made better, the exchange girls want to know  whether "subscribers and their manners are to be Included in the general scheme for improvement.'   ���������  It is not subscribers en bloc who  are objectionable. Some of them are  charming. Jii the main, however,  there is the greatest resemblance between the folk whose names are in  the telephon-e dii'ectory and the curates memorable eggs���������some arc good  and some are bad, and the bad ones  are horrid indeed! .  The work of a telephone girl may  be all the nice things which you think  it is, but it is not all' honey by any  means and there are some subscribers whom every exchange girl know  proportion to the measure of use we  are to the public.

The increases are  on commercial business, there being  no increase on press service or leased  wires.

Glasgow.  Manchester. Birmingham, Bristol and  Paris.  ' Tho advantages of this arrange-,  ment are many, for the Dominion  Express, holding as it does the exclusive right of shipping Express  parcels over the entire C.P.R. system, as agents for the Aeroplane  Service can ensure that r.n Express  package scheduled to catch a certain  fhip actually reached its destnatkm  n Canada in (he shortest possible  space of time.
