The lOdkor of The Abbotsford Post,  Sir,���������-Your cditorinl remarks upon  the'action of the president of the JUat-  squi-Sumas Board of Trade in (ho issue of March 7th, in connection with  the Hazel street crossing, arc extraordinarily .inaccurate and misleading.  Permit me to give you the facts of  the case.  , ' ���������'  In 'the first place the president has  ,,_ never been asked or appointed by the  . board   to act  as  its  delegate   to  the  Railway Commission. Two other members of the board were appointed for  ���������    that purpose.    But at the request of  ."   some of the townsmen of'Abbotsford  the president undertook to be present  at  the  last'meeting,  but one  of: the  Commission  in  Vancouver  and   state  the case for them. He' attended this  meeting and  waited   two  whole  days  for his case'-to come, on, only to find  -.at  7; p.m.. .of_ .the  final'.day'that  the-  board   would'not  at" that .time   near  any more cases.    All cases left/over  , had  to be. considered  by correspondence at Ottawa.- A'lengthy statement  of the case'was transmited , by   the'  .president to the secretary of the "Commission and a copy of the same sent  to the C. P. R. authorities, as the law-  requires, but'nothing was done in thc-  matter till the Commission sat in Van  couver in December last, when '.the  wise was considered. This meeting  look place,Just us the president was  starling for Eastern Canada on his  lecture tour, when It was impossible  for him to attend personally, but he  submitted for, the consideration of the  Commission another lengthy .statement of the case on behalf of Abbotsford, which set the matter moving.  On his  return  from  the  East    the  subject came up for discussion and the  president publicly explained   why "he  was unable to be present at the Vancouver meeting of the'Commission. He  was then,- for the first time, authorized by the board of trade to continue  his efforts and endeavor to bring them  to  a successful issue.-.The letter you  published  shows, I  think,  that he is  not neglecting his duties.  May I suggest-.to you that in ' tlie  future before you criticize the. action  of any member* of our board you first  ascertain the "facts of the case from  some authoritative source. -Your cri-  U'cisms might then have some value.  In this case somebody has. been evidently pulling t your leg.  ( May I ask you to give' the same,  publicity to,, this communication ., as  yW'did to; your, editorial-remarks.,   -  CHARLES' HIL'l'TOUT,  ;   President   Matsqui-Sumas .Board  , of Trade.  This paper' is pleased to give Mr.  Hill-Tout's letter the publicity he desires. Our editorial last week was not  intended to be either "extraordinarily  inacurate or misleading" but it was  desired to have the president over his  8 $1.00 PER YEAR  L MEETING  With the call of spring in the air,  bright sunshine and balmy breezes  no wonder the sound of hammer and  saw is heard in all directions throughout Abbotsford.  Essandane Avenu.e or rather.that  part of it which was recently wiped  out by fire, for the' past few months  was in a deplorable/condition, but now  it is resuming a. business-like aspect',  and .in the course} of. a few months  the original "old; timers-'will need a  guide to show them, the former landmarks.      ,    . /  Mr. Alanson, Abbotsfcrd's leading  hardware merchant, was ��������� the'"'first to  start operations, and new his new  store is a credit, not,only .to the town  of Abbotsford, but. to tlie whole Valley.    .  Mr. Lee's new bakery and refreshment parlors, now,.in course of erection next to Mr. Alanson's stor.e, is  rapidly -n'eariug"cohipMwn. "Mr/'LVe,"  in .fact,   expects   to   occup/   the .new  (Oon'timued on Page Four)  li.V  Our Goods are open for  inspection and comparison, quality considered,  with    those   anywhere.  premises by Saturday we^k. This new  building when completed will greatly 'improve .;he appearance of . this  rapidly growing main.street.  Mr. Gazley ,the owner of the Gazley  Block, including the' Maple Leaf Hall,"  which was also destroyed at the time  of the  fire,  has -descided  to  erect a  block on the old site, which will be'a  credit to the whole .community. Operations will commence in the course ol  a few days.    The new structure will  be  one   of   concrete,   two   storeys   in  heights.    The    lower    part    of    the  building will be fitted up    as    stores  (which, by the way, have all been spoken   for   in   advance)   while  the   upstairs will be used as a hall similar  to  the  old  Maple Leaf Hall, only it  will be  eight feet wider and fifteen  longer,   giving  a   much  larger- space  for concerts, dances and other social  gatherings.     The   building    will     be  equipped with all the modern conveniences  that  are  essential  in  a first-  class business block.   Mr. Gazley was  one of the first to build in Abbotsford,  and though he has met with misfortunes,  both  through fire and  illness,  he still  pins  his faith  on the future  prospects  of "the  only  town on  the  map"���������Abbotsford.  Opposite this corner will be the new  Commercial Hotel, the plans of which  Messrs. McElroy, McElroy Bros, are  now working on.  With these business blocks being  erected quite a number of private residences are in course of construction.  the regular monthly meeting was  held in the' Municipal Hah on Saturday, February 22nd, with the Reeve in  the chair, w.

Both young gentlemen-have a thorough-knowledge of  the grocery business, and with the  rapidly growing demands of the community, should make a success of  their venture.  -    Mr.   Alanson,   who   formerly   occupied  the  corner store "in- the "Gazley  block, and was one of the heaviest los- "  ers in the recent fire^ is now domiciled  in   his   new  premises   on  Essandane  Avenue,  next the.

Our Shibboleth���������Neither i'or nor agin the Government.  Friday, March, 14, 1913  The Saturday Sunset and the Vancouver Sun both tinder the  control of the Liberal party of the province and the same managm|?  editor, etc., etc., has handed Mayor, Baxter a few packages that w 1  not be healed up at an early date, and Mayor .Baxter a poss.be  Liberal candidate at the next provincial election or the proving  house But then the Liberals of Vancouver never d.d agree and that  is why the Conservatives have gained such strength and the-province in the hands of the present government, -while at the present  time a few disgruntled Conservatives say, they will vote Liben.1 at  the next provincial election. But that ib wandermg away from the  , -roast that the Sunset gave Vancouver's first citizen.   Here is pait  ������   'some doubts were expressed at the beginning of the year with regard to  ' ,kv     Baxter's fitness for the position he occupies..   There is no longer any  doub     Tl^   uty o  the mayor 1, to act as the city's chief executive, guarding  fhe cttv's interests as best he can and remaining absolutely unprejudiced,  nstead  ot   t^ Mr.  Baxter has taken,  for  reasons  best  Known to  h.m-  ef  the posio'n a   special pleader for the Canadian Northern agreement  He has pCved conclusively that Vancouver has for its chlet magistrate a  ���������n whoatoouBto dirty insinuations to gain his ends; a.man who has no  m"e righl��������� *Tl. posit! than a cheap ward politician who.has been pitchforked into ofiice and at that by an accident.  The humble street cleaner,.euphoniously known as the "white wing is  a more honest employe of the city than Mayor Baxter. The former puts in  height hof/every day doing the-work for' which he is paid wine th,  gentleman who rules over the city hall accepts payment from the citizens,  and mTsJses the power which he holds. The False ������^  matter for the people to decide. It has been shown that opinion is tauiy  Ten y alvioefl and both sides have an equal right to state their convictions.  Wither lhe majority considers it good or bad is yet to be shown. Appar-  ' luv these facts bear no weight'with Mr. Baxter. He has his opinion and  ' hat became he thinks as he does the world should follow in am foot,  steps As mayor of the city his duty is clear. If he considers th^ Fal  Creek agreement a benefit, he should say so at once and let the matter go  at'hat Instead he takes part in innumerable, meetings, shouting his man-  . date from the platform and acting as though he were, the bearer of a dime  message He forgets that he was not elected mayor of Vancouver. [He  olta ned hs office either through a lucky chance or deliberate intention  whichever ay it works out the public had nothing to say about it. Instead  Tf coming Zvard with the declaration that he preferred a fair election  iLtZot winning on a technicality, Mr. Baxter calmly sat down to enjoy  The fruits oTl^ luck. This was not a serious offense, but it gave a ban,  of the mans character.  Now Mayor Baxter finds fault with any who oppose him m the False  Creek deal. It is because he has reasons to suspect his own motives that  heLts aspersions on the character of those who speak m opposition^ to  the agreement? This would be the most logical supposition. To the puie,  all S are pure" works both ways. .There is absolutely ^ ground for  ���������Se belief that any of the gentlemen who oppose the bylaw could be othe^  than disinterested, for there is no particular interest at work to defeat it.  They are actuated by the belief that the agreement is a bad one and do not  nesitate to say so. If Mr. Baxter is entirely free from any taint, why does  he immediately suspect others?

After standing on provincial balance  sheets for seventeen years as representing assets to the extent of fifteen  thousand dollars, the promissory  notes given "to the government by  farmers in the lower Fraser River  Valley in exchange for seed, wheat,  they desired to plant in the year following the great flood of 1894, bobbed  up before the public accounts 'committee of the Legislature yesterday.  Some few of the notes have been paid  but there are many |iven by men  who are now wealthy which have  iiever been taken up and on. which not  even interest has been paid.  Adding! interest at 4 per cent, to  the principal owing all these years,  th'sre is now due the government  some $25,000.  All tlie notes were for  small sums, very few ..of them exceed  ing one hundred and fifty dollars.  It is estimated that from 50 to 75  per cent, of the indebtedness is collectable.

The  scarcity of houses is the cause of their  removal. Mr. and Mrs. Rutling returned to their home in the village  after a year spent at Whatcome road  in connection with the custom house  business.  Mr. C. B. Hill-Tout was a passenger  to Vancouver on Monday'last  Mr. Fooks, one of our enterprising  farmers around  Abbotsford,    has    in  contemplation the building of a modern sanitary barn.    For a number of  years  he did a  large dairy  business,  but of late years he has not paid much  attention to it, but is again going into  the business and will run it along principles that will insure his customers  the  best of fresh    milk.    The    first  necessary requisite he deems is a fine  barn for his herd of dairy cows. With  a  view  of making everything handy.  and pleasant to do the work of milking and feeding his cows.    The barn  will be 100 x 90 under, which which  will   be a stable  for his  cows; Each  cow will have a veritable little palace  or  her  own.  By  means  of, carriages  there   will   be   a   constant  supply  of  feed   in   front  of  the  cow,   and  also'  fresh water, a bucket being arranged  for this which  will always contain a  mouthful  of water, and  the  moment  the cow puts her nose into the bucket  to  drtnk it  will   turn  on   the  tap  of  fresh  water for  her  to  drink.  When  she lifts her nose from the bucket the  tap  turns off ancl  the surplus  water  drains  off.  Other    sanitary    arrangements will be made so that the stable  will always be clean.    Mr.  Fooks believes that cleanliness in the milking  business is next to godliness, and in  tends to have the most modern dairy  stable in the Fraser Valley.  Mr. C. B. Hill-Tout delivered a lecture at the Progress Club in Vancouver on Wednesday last. On the same  date he was a delegate to interview  the Attorney-General and Deputy Minister of Agriculture from the Fraser  Valley Publicity bureau asking that  more space be given by the government for exhibits from the Fraser Val-  Mr. Hill-Tout's Letter  (Continued from; page 1)  own signature tell the public how long  he had been on the job and cover  himself with the glory of success if  he could. The truth of the matter is  that the matter has not been gone  about in the right way. It is folly to  attempt to make the public believe  that the president sat for two whole  days awaiting his turn and then to be  told that the matter would have to be  taken up by correspondence. It has  been the boast of the commission  that if any public body or person has  a grievance against a railway that if  the grievance is properly laid before  the commission an appointment will  be set for at the earliest date possible,  and a hearing granted. Other boards  have had prompt hearing, why not the  matsqui-Sumas. At the first meeting  in June, 1911, a petition was presented  to the board by the citizens of Abbotsford asking that the street was desired opened. Was any member of the  board to meet the commission at its j  next meeting in 1911? Did that party  meet the commission? If not, why���������  not? If the president could not have1*  attended the meeting last December  why was not another representative  appointed to take his place when the  matter was to be discussed? When a  member of the board undertakes a  mission for any.public body, it would  seem that it was equal to an appointment to do so.  The work on Montrose street is the  result of prompt, well., laid plans by  the board and its representatives.���������  Editor.
