Dr.  Kittfi said that Mr. E. A. Cleveland  was paid $13,137 in 1911-12 for road  location surveys from Hope to- Princeton. The survey is 92.8 miles in  length, with a maximum gradient of  8 per cent for three miles, the summit being 4,4 8 5 fet hacve sea level.  The road would cost about $307,000  (From the Fraser Valley Reoord)  Eleswhere it will be seen that Senator Taylor has promised the residents of Port Coqultlam that the $25,-  000 post office will bo built in that  burg, if he can arrange it with the  government, helping the representative of the district, Mr. Stacey.  The grant was first made for Port  Coqultlam about the same time as the  grant was made for the new public  building for Mission City, when Senator Taylor was our member; and if  the prospects are bo bright for Port  Goquitlara there is every hopo that  Mission City will havo its new public  building at an early date.  Tho land has been purchased and  theg rant renewed several times, but  on account of the war all public work  was set aside, but now that the war  is won Mislson City ill look to our  'present representative to givet his lit-  rtie matter his most careful thought  and attenion.

Premier John Oliver. It  is heartrending-to write an article making such a statement.  It will cost the whole province  a lot of money, to have him at  tho head of affairs of this province for his term of office.  We sincerely believe, as- do  a great many more of the electorate that the P. G. E. would  have been built sooner had the  late Conservative government  been returned to power. It is  highly important that the rich  country which this road will  open up should have transportation to the coast. ��������� By the delay the- district suffers to that  extent when production was so  important during the period of  the war. And it will be a big  mathematical proble mfor the  electors to work out before the  next election -just what- this  road will cost before it is completed. Under the old government they tell us that there was  big graft (or something .-like-  that) but the present muddled  conditions and uncertainty in  connection with the- ��������� road . is  likely to amount to quite a very  big figure���������maybe . more than  the so-called, graft. So there,  you are.      Take your, choice.; of  what might have been and what  really exists, remembering at  the same time that this road is  not .yet built. ��������� ���������  ��������� ��������� .   '< -  During the. regime   of   the  present government some $7Q,-  000 has. been   appropriated   for  roads   of   Dewdney',: including  the town .of Mission: City.    And  remember Premier Oliver . said  on the hustings during the last  election that the roads of Dewdney were in excellent condition.  We think he said    too    much  money had been spent   on   our  roads.. 'The same, will never be  said about the   Oliver   government at the next election by the  most   critical   candidate   that  might oppose him���������not  if . you  searched the whole continent of  America or the   war   stricken  districts of Europe for a critic.  Where was the $70,000- spent?  Many people   are . inclined   to  believe that the ' $70,000   spent  , has practically' been ��������� wasted-  judging by the. condition, of the  roads.   -In 191.7 the roads were  not as good as in 1916; in 1913.  the roadsNvere worse   than   in.  1917; and in 1919 the roads will  have degenerated back   to   the  days   when   people   spoke   of  them as the trails of Dewdney.  Many a trail is    much    better  than lots of    the    government  roads.    Then not only has the  money of the past   two   years  been wasted but a   very   large  large proportion of that spent  during the regime of.the late  Conservative government..Just  think of the thousands that that  means, and then of how much  j! will take to put the roads., in  a. good condition as they were  in 1916 when they we're the admiration of the Hon. ��������� Premier-  John .Oliver the provinical   representative ��������� now at- Victoria..  Let us put the ban on foreigners  in future and get a man from  .Dewdney to represent Dewdney  at Victoria.      "   "  '     " ' ';' '.-'" ;  When   the   present 'govern-,  ment took-hold of-the reins of  rower at Victoria there was a  most e7:ccllent road equipment  for road building in ' Dewdney  all paid   for.    It   might -have  cost $50,000���������today there is but  a relic of it left, and it has cost  Dewdney that much more to get  such rotten roads as the Dewdney Trunk road is today, with a  part of it abandoned for want of  repair.  ��������� Isn't it awful!

Consequently  "Information" could not oblige, as she had no record  showing who occupied the house.  If a person has a telephone, you will find that "Information" can always give you the number.
