From the C. P. R. stating that the  gravel on the various road-crossings  on the Mission branch would be coated with cinders as soon as the same  were available.

Melander informed the reeve  who was not familiar with the premises, that he had intended to give  this matter his attention last year.but  lack of funds alone, had prevented  any action being taken. It was  thought tha he bridge could be replaced by a culvert and a fill. Mr.-  Rummel asked, also, that the matter  of the diversion of this road at the  north-west corner receive attention,  he having brought the matter before  the council some three years ago.

The air is full of conventions these days as it is full of politics and while-it is hardly up to the Abbotsford Post to say  much about politics--should leave it to the. big rellows -to do  all the talking and get all the abuse,' but it-appears to "our editor that it is about time that the Abbotsford end of the riding  should have the honor of sending a candidate to Victoria to  represent the riding. The Chilliwack end of the Tiding*-has  had the honor since Adam was a little boy, if we remember correctly. Being a member of parliament, after all is only a matter of public favor, rather than, a matter of public opinion  The signs, of the times point to Abbotsford, as both the Liberal .and the Conservative conventions are to be held in Abbotsford this time. - It is.an admission on the part of Chilliwack  that Abbotsford or Matsjui or Mt. Lehman end of the riding is  entitled to some political favor. The Conservative convention  meets this Saturday and the Liberals will meet at a date to be  decided upon later.  The Abbotsford Post is for the man who will do the most for  the district, and a representative residing in Chilliwack cannot  have the same interest in Abbotsford as he would have in the  dear old Chilliwack as he is residing there. Now Mr. Cawley is  a nice man and ho person can have anything against him. He -  is a fine respectable citizen and an excellent member of parliament���������for Chilliwack.  ' We have some excellent men at this end of the riding who  would willingly represent us, the Post believes, and apart from  politics if the district was fortunate in selecting a man who  would be a winner and on the same side the government  sits, it would go a long way towards putting this end of the  riding on the map. The Post believes he would get support  irrespective of politics. Gentlemen act accordingly.  Thursday's Province named our ex-reeve Wm. Merryfield as  a likely candidate for Yale district at the forthcoming election.  The Post called up Mr. Merryfield this morning and asked him  about it. The answer came over the 'phone "I don't know anything about it" >  In this connection the Post is of opinion that Mr. Wm. Merryfield would make an excellent member for Chilliwack riding  if elected. He is a man who has served the municipality' of  Matsqui for many years and while a public spirited man, is also a man of excellent judgment and foresight and would make  a very good member if elected and would pull a strong support  from both parties if nominated. Think it over Mr. D elegate.  Rev. A.

' L. Beharrel and seventeen others  presented a petition to repair the Riverside road from Rivedale to Matsqui village and the Page road from  the Riverside road to the Belt road  Coun. Elliott stated that several of  the petitioners were not ratepayers  and while acknowledging that the  roads were in poor shape, he believed greater harm would result from  hauling gravel from Abbotsford than  the resulting benefits. At his suggestion the petition was laid over for  future consideration.  C. E.

Now why should a  man blush to be a politician?    The true politician lives for his  constituency, for his,country, spends his time looking after his  constituents while out. of the house and during the session he  watches carefully the making of the laws for his country, that  ���������will not only raise the status of living, not only among his o.wn  constituents, but will  benefit, communities elsewhere.  On the  eve of a political 'election in  this province the fiat has gone  forth to "smash the machine". The Conservative party is of  course meant.      Are there no good men among the Conservative party.    They say there is good and bad, 'even in Ireland'.  The Liberals would put over the present government the steam  roller.    The phrase has a lighting sound to it, and many people  would like to know what is to happen after the work of destruc-  ' tion has been accomplished, and the Liberal party in power in  Victoria.     What would really happen? What has happened in  other provinces.    Has the Liberal party of the province a policy  that is better for the ordinary citizen, than the one that has controlled the destinies of this,province for the past twelve years  Are their men more honorable than the men that are to be  smashed.    If they are; if they have we want them at the head  of affairs, but if not there is enough destruction going on during the present European war to satisfy the most reckless of  smashers.    Let them do all the smashing in Europe, but let  lis rather buildup the province than do any. smashing.      The  manifesto of the Liberal leader has been issued. Is it more constructive than destructive?    That manifesto is full of criticisms  but does it contain anything better than what the people of the  province have enjoyed during the past twelve years?

Mr. Poignant, who  supported the petition assured the  council that this proposed road would  prove of great benefit to the resident  settlers, and while the completion of  the road would'entail considerable  expenditure he thought that a passable' road for the distance now required for $100,, over and above the  gratis labor. Tlie reeve said that- due  care should be exercised in the laying  out of any new road as no inconsiderable amount of money had been  spent in the past on roads that later  had been abandoned., Coun. McCal-  lum. and the reeve agreed to go over  the ground at an early date with Mr.  Poignant to ascertain what action  should be taken.  A.' L. Bates wrote stating that in  the construction of tho Bates road in  .1.9 L4 damage had been done to a  flume which, lie had previously laid  across the said road to convey water  fo his pasture land. He asked that  tlie damage complained of be remedied, suggesting that, a pipe be laid  under the road. Coun. Owen remarked that it would bo more in order  for Mr. Bates to ask permission from  the council to convoy the water a-  cross  the  road.' ,  Canadian Bank of Commerce asked  as to what disposal the council intended to make of the credit balance  there of $34.82. The reeve and the  clerk were instructed to sign a  cheque on the Canadian Bank of Com  merce for the,amount.,ol.' the credit  balance and that this sum ho deposited in the Bank of Montreal.  Ncls Larson stated in a communication that on December 19th, 19 14,  the municipal policeman had entered his premises and shot ancl killed  his dog during his (Larson's) absence from home, the dog being tied  up*"at the time. The policeman untied the dog, led the same into the  woods and after shooting it left the  body unburied.. He valued the dog  at $25.00 and made formal demand  of this amount.        No evidence was I low his claim; ���������  each side of the centre line and digging a ditch on. the west'side of the  road.

Heretofore  the little work done, on 'this road has  been performed by statute labor.    1  advise that 5 chains of this work be  done by day'labor and that tenders  be called for the clearing      The'report was adopted, an Coun.

The'reeve  remarked  that  the  work    asked     for  could  not  bo  procedod   with  at  the  present time, but Mr. Walter was assured that his application would receive due consideration.  On behalf of the Peardonville.ratepayers Association Mr. Skipworth pro  tested fo the council against tho man  nor in wihch the road work was being  apportioned in Ward I., but from the  explanation given by Conn. Melander  the council thought that'no injustice  had boon done to anyone. . He'askod  payment for damages alleged done  through blasting operations ,in ��������� connection with the expenditure of provincial money on the Huntingdon  road in 1914, the allcgod damage  being tho destruction of a portion of  the roof of tho Peardonville Hall.  The council declined to assume tho  responsibility in the matter.  C. O. Knudson asked payment of  accounts for household supplies to  his family while he was under arrest  in 1914.    The council declned to al-  line of the Mission Telephone Company from the Riverside road, along  the Page road "to "the Smith-Jones  road and, that they 'would place  their poles on the south side of this  road. He asked as to the distance of  the poles should be placed from the  property line.

Ask any old timer about the Turner,  Prior, Semlin, Semlin-M'artin-Cotton, Martin, Dunsmuir administrations and some of their predecessors. There are governments and governments as well as there are politicians and  politicians, but why should a politician "blush"? Are our politicians blushing to-day? Should they blush, if they are not  blushing?  THE ELECTION EDITOR'S THUNKS  After mature consideration we have come to the conclusion  that the power of the press is great. Just look at the furore the  ex-Hon. Joseph Martin is creating. We would run a hot rag too  , only we have a sort of reputation for not being able to put up  a good scrap like Joe, the carpet bag politician.  It is said that many Liberals in British Columbia are these  days wishing,that Honest John Oliver, with accent on the Honest, would carry a black cat's ear in his left vest pocket, and a  magic bean under the pit of his arm, so that when it comes to  nominating a candidate for the forthcoming election, the spell  induced by these charms would create his invisibility. His  glittering and general generalities on the political situations  of the day have come to be looked upon as a joke by the intelligent electors. Take this to heart Dewdney Liberals and  act thereon.  Many Conservatives of Dewdney are asking themselves these  days as to whether it is time for a change-���������of government, or  a change- of candidate or stand by the Manson howitzer.  Not even the attractions of having a great Whiteway supreme  in Vancouver could detract the votes of the honest electors of  the city by Stanley Park from their idol, Mayor Taylor.  Coppers are being introduced into many parts of B. C. Is  this the result of McBride's great railway policy?  Macdonald last summer at Mission City said that the government at Victoria was a "star chmber of political charlatans.'  Give the Liberals the same chance for twelve years and might  not their names be Dennis also ? ? ? ?  ,   Wind up the Winch and social democracy is pulled out of the  hold.  Eh!  Isn't it more than passing strange that the Vancouver Daily  Province which carries a B. C. Electric ad., consistently publishes daily as news items trivial "accidents" in which jitneys'  figure?  A couple (at least) of bad breaks were noticed in the election "dope" on the Dewdney situation, appearing in Joe Martin's Journal last week. The, writer mentioned Mayor Mackenzie as a possible Liberal candidate not being wise to the  fact that our worthy mayor is on the executive of Port Qoquit-  lam Conservative Association. It was also stated that Robert  Abernethy, of Port Moody had become rich on valuable timber  leases obtained generously from the Conservative Government  when it is an irrefutable fact that Mr. Abernethy never owned  a stick of timber���������except possibly for fencing in his residence.  Could it be that the ex-Honorable Joseph Martin knew Mayor  Mackenzie when they were both happy little birds singing a-  mong the tree-tops?  structions, to kill this clog and the  council refused to acknowledge any  liability  in. the  matter.  From Taylor and Henderson submitting plans of subdivisions which  are to be looked after by the clerk  and Coun. Elliott.  - D. H.

Rucker and twelve others,  being a petition to open up the road  allowance on the west boundary of  block 6 D. L. 48. The reeve appointed  Coun. Melander and McCallum a com  mittee to go over the premises with  him both peitions to receive attention.  Jo. Coote asked that the ditch a-  long the International boundary road'  ���������be deepened so that he may be able  to drain his land, also, that repairs  be made to the. road there as he wish  ed to haul in some lumber' for farm  buildings. ��������� Coun. Melander stated  that there was a doubt as to this  being on the proper location, and he  was of the opinion that the road  should be surveyed before any money was spent ��������� thereon. He recommended that the south LeFeuvre road  should., be extended by gazetting  southward from the Huntingdon road  to the International Boundary road.  Coun. Melander was authorized to  engage a competent P. L,.S. to survey the road to be gazetted from the  Huntingdon road south between sections 4 ando Tp. 13 to the International Boundary Line road from the  western boundary of the municipality eastward to the S. E. corner of  the S. W. 1-4 of sec. 4, Tp. 13.  Re Mr. Currie's claim for damages  resulting from clearing operations at  Aberdeen cemetery the following motion was passed "In blasting the  standing timber on the Aberdeen  cemetery sixteen balsam firs were  thrown on Mr. Currie's land for  which he claims $30.00 damages.  Out of said sum Mr. Currie agrees  to pay half of the new fence along  his cleared field, his share being $4.-  65, but he refuses to pay any share  of the fence where the cemetery joins  his wood land. . Mr. Currie further  agrees to have his taxes and the taxes  of the Japanese purchasers deducted  from the balance. The report was accepted and settlement will*be made  accordingly.  Coun. Owen reported re L. Cogh-  lan's complaint, re encroachment of  the Mt.

With  regard to building the road on the  centre road allowance, I find there is  no physical reason why this should  not.be done. Therefore I recommend  that the road be built on the centre  of the road allowance and recommend that tenders be called for clearing the right-of-way 20 feet wide on  The,superintendent of construction  of the B.
