In order to get any proper results  from the bells, they will be bonded  only to the main line tracks.

From the centre of Home Avenue, at  a point fifty feet from the most northerly track, an aproaching train can  bo seen a distance of only some 17 5  feet, and from the west a distance of  some 22 0 feet. The view from the  south is more satisfactory. In addition to this Home Avenue approaches  the railway track on a down grade.  At Mission Junction, in which  Home Avenue is situate trains from  the Sumas Branch, ingoing to tho  station, approaching from the south,  cross Home Avenue and back across  to the station. Trains for S'nmas  leaving the Junction back out of the  station across Home Avenue and then  proceed down'the Sumas Branch, entailing, of course, a second crossing  of Home Avenue-.  l-lorno Avenue is crossed by the  double tracks of the Company, over  which is carried tho whole of its Vancouver business, and also by a passing  track to the north. The main line  tracks are used for tho Sumas trains.  I am of the opinion that some better protection must be given. Automatic alarms should be installed. Owing to the fact that on the passing  track trains are cut and then left  standing, still further obscuring, the  view and at the same time deadening the sound of bells, and bearing  in mind that with the d.oublo tracks  trains may be operating in both directions, I am of .the opinion, so that  no one approaching it can fail to hear  the warning.

MOVISn HIS GARAGE TO .MAIN ST.  A .WELCOME HOME  Sounds of revelry were heard a-  rcund Mount Mary Ann on Friday evening last, when about forty friends  from' Mission, Hatzic and ML  Mary  Ann, gave a surprise party at the  home of Mr. and Mrs. Topper, to celebrate the return of their son Tte.  Basil Topper, from the Front, after  an absence of nearly four years.  The evening was spent in, music  iand singing and games after which  /refreshments were served    in    dainty  style.  The most pleasing feature of the  evening was the presentation by Mr.  Taulbut of an illuminated address  presented to Pte. Topper from his  friends in appreciation of the great  and noble work which he has rendered to his country and home.  About midnight the party broke up  with the singing of the National Anthem and everyone voted they had a  good time,  Tho project of a uniform, permanent roll of honor for all the Fraser  Valley municipalities, was advanced  a step at a meeting of reeves and  other municipal representatives heid  in the city hall at New Westminster  last week, when Municipal Clerk Mc-  Diarmid, oi Ladner, undertook at the  request of the chairman, Reeve Mc-  Callum, to write all clerks in the valley asking for the number of names  which would appear on their honor  roll and also for an expression of  their council's opinion as to the advisability of going ahead with this  scheme. The former information is  wanted in order to determine the size  of ^he tablet necessary, and also in  order to determine more closely the  probable cost; and the latter is asked  because only some of the municipalities were represented and only, one  or two were authorized by their councils to go ahead on the project.  Tho idea is to have a permanent  honor roll in enduring brass or in  bronze, In order that the names of  the men from each municipality who  went overseas may be honored not;  only by this but also by succeeding  generations. And it is thought that  by all the municipalities acting together the total coat can be reduced  considerably. This proves to be the  case, for the representative of a Vancouver firm said that if they could  make fifty of thoso tablets the cost  could be kept down to $50 each,'that  is for a brass tablet in an oak frame  an all metal affair would be dearer.  This price, however, does not Include the engraving of the names  which would range from 15 to 25  cents a letter, according to the size  and tho number of names. ��������� Another  firm quoted $95 for the tablet and  $1 each for names. Designs were also  submitted.  The whole matter, however, is rather indefinite, and it was docidedto  meet again in four weeks when with  the information secured by Mr. Mc-  Diarmid in the meantime it may be  possible to get things info a more  concrete Conn.���������Columbian.  A fire broke out on Monday afternoon in the home of Mr. Wrcveiske  near tbc^Abbotsford mill and has  completely destroyed it.

BATES,' Editor and Proprietor  Published Evory Friday  FRIDAY,  MARCH 28, 1919  It takes an employee of- the government  to size up our lawmakers-and calls the powers  that be at Victoria, "pinheads".  .  It is wonderful how the people of the province are beginning to find fault with- the provincial government at Victoria.    Now come the  soldiers with  their almost ultimatum to the  premier.    They mistrust him am', we   believe  they are perfectly justified in lor.king at his  actions in that light.    The housv. has been in  session now for sometime and il is a case of  ���������   the government either "passing the buck" to  Ottawa or to the leader of the opposition, in  Victoria.  The question of the soldier employment is  undoubtedly one of the matters that the present government should deal with and do it  right���������which means to the satisfaction of the  boys 'who have kept.their word' to the people of British Columbia.    A government that'  does not keep its word to the beys who have  so ably done their part will meet with short  shrift when it comes before the people, the  ���������very big majority-of whom will not stand for  any nonsense in the-matter.    It is tlie opinion  of the people of British Columbia that the B.  C.. government and  the  Ottawa, government  must deal fairly with the soldiery���������no matter  what it costs and no matter how hard the burden is to bear.    It seems a pity that there is  not at the head of affairs in this province at  the present time a man who  hj:.s a higher  conception of the noble work whhjh has been  done in the winning of the war.  It is poor gratitude that one returned soldier  let alone thousands should return to the province and not find a few square meals ready  for them wihout having to get right down to  hard work. '.   ��������� s ������������������ ������������������  ?.''/'  The moderates appear to have among them  men who are enthusiastic in their endeavor  to have the present prohibition act altered.  Prohibition has been secured after many years  hard work on the part of the prohibitionists.  They have won and are now on ti e defensive  in order to maintain the present system. All  who have been to the front will tell us that  aggression is what wins. No bars'le was ever  gained by simply defending. In ihe future the  prohibitionists must defend against the war  waged by the moderates.- The agt.Tossi ve will  win.  THE GREAT EXPERIMENT  Bolshevism is the aim and object   of   the  masters of ignorance.    They teii us that the  allies are the enemies of domocr.icy because  they had to intervene in Russia i i   order   to  save those districts they can resell from the  fire and sword of    Bolshevism.      The    only  channels for food supplies open r ; the starv-  ing mil.lions.,of Russia are those '���������.-.cpt open by  the allies.    Tlie only avenue of   safety    for  people fleeing from the  Bolsluv st terror is  that guarded by allied troops.    Fo.and and the  Ukraine are being invaded and'devastated by  the Bolshevist troops, who are tiurollcd by a  far more powerful force than    :\i.y    military  service act or conscription.    Starvation is the  force .which drives the . Bolshevist soldier forward.    If the Russian refuses to jrin the Bolshevist forces he must starve.    If he does not  starve he is classed as a bourgeois and is rob-'  bi������d, beaten, subject to constant police survel-  lance, his home is taken from him and his family broken, up;    And we in Canada are being  asked in cunning fashion to allow Bolshevism  full control here.  There is no need to side-step the- issue. It  is just as well to put into plain words what  these so.called reformers are Mtempting to  do. They want to bring about inarchy in  Canada to destroy capital, to eliminate property, to do away with what they call the  bourgeoise, with the church, with the family,  and to put in their place���������themselves. That  British Columbia boys have been the greatest of boosters for our fair province while at  the same time helping to win the war���������so  systematically has this been carried on that  thousands are making for this province who  never saw it before.    They are taring advantage of the leave to go to any par ���������. of the dominion, to disperse, and what on;   boys have  said about ,B. C.'s mild climate, /oaether with  what these soldiers heard before-,   lie decision  has been arrived at      'British -j )lumbia for  mine' and here they are.    It is up to B. C. to  make them at home so they wont be sorry for  coming.-    They must be treated ar one of our  own soldier boys.  is all we are being asked to do. We are asked  , to trust these doctrinaires to leave things to  them and they will show us a new world, in  which everybody will be perfectly happy and  equal.  'We are asked.-in fact to do away with those  things which have given us prosperity and a  certain amount of material ��������� comfort,    which  have admitedly 'raised the standard of-living  in Canada to a level far above that in Europe  or Asia, and try a great experiment.    The experiment is to be conducted by men who have  had  no  experience in? government and, who  have usually shown by their actions that they  are totally unfitted to control anything, even  themselves.    They ask lis  to pull down  our  whole system ar-! allow them to biuid the new ,  one.   -They say'ihat  the present method of  constitutional  progress���������that  is  the  method  of electing to parliament the man whom we  '  think can serve tlie country best*���������is controlled  by the big intereots and'that the workingmau  has no chance o( getting what he wants in  consequence,    '.i norefore, they ask us (o use  force, to bring about the revolution they desire by force,  by  using arms to shoot down  those that oppose any such experiment with  ' the lives and happiness of the people.  They say that no real progress has    been  made in the world without the use of force,  and illustrate their argument by the   French  revolution and new by the Boisheviki. They  quote Karl Marx, the Prussian scientific Socialist, a.s an advocate of force.    Their belief  in  German methods is based on  the use of  force to dominate or control those they '-ire  unable to control   by   constitutional   means.  They te-31 us that Arthur Henderson, the English labor leader \a an advocate of this revolution and that .English labor believes in using  force.    They worj against English    and    A-  merican labor wwen it determined to    fight  Germany to a finish, but try and pretend that  they are with  it when  it comes to  fighing  capital or he classes to a finish.'  Any person who takes the trouble to read  Arthur Henderson's. "The Aims of Labor,"  will 'realize the absolute falsity of this last.  His whole book is devoted to combating force,  as it accomplishes nothing,but merely puts the  hands of the clock back, destroys what has  taken years and infinite labor to build, and  gives a handle to reaction.. Over, and over a-  gain in his book he tells labor tH&t it must be  responsible and realizes the need of proper edu  cation.    Ignorant of markets, ignorance of  il^UtiJIffiHIHI II1 in \mnMnrnmimimmfr0,  Everyone responds to courtesy, face to face  or "telephone to telephone." Not one person  in a hundred will reply with deliberate brusk-  ness if the smile in our voice reaches him, oilier. ,  :  A genial telephone voice marks that true  cordiality which, is the basis of successful  business and real friendship.  RITISH COLUMBIA 'TELEPHONE Co.  Limited  ���������  economics, ignorance of government, ignbr-  ' ance of credit op', rations are all of them evils  which labor mu?; combat before it can advance. -A<- detern..nation to better conditions  by constitutional means is what    is    needed.  The result of thr-  English  elections    proved  that labor would have nothing to do with the  -pacifists and frie-.ds of Bolshevism. Lloyd  George, a self-mude man, triumphed by the  greatest majority ever given to an English  premier.  Yet those who advocate Bolshevism or anarchy ask us to trust them. They do not tell  iis exactly how they intend to carry on government after they have destroyed the one we  are accustomed K\ They do not tell us how  they propose to : \arket the goods they say  they will produce by the socialization of industry. They propose to destroy first, forgetting that such destruction necessarily entails everyone being out of work and starving.  It is a pleasant outlook for all of us, whether,  we work with ou: hands or our brains.  A writer in the Duluth Labor World giving  ���������warning to his union brethren against revolu-  H,  mi says:  "We have  wkj in our hands in the United  the we.-.nons that are necessary for  ing  A  about his  complete free-  States all  man to wieicl to  dom.

These envelopes are going fast, and some of
our best customers have not yet taken advantage of the offer. It is possible that a month
from now they may be too late. Theregular

Nothing will be lost, if they are kept over.until next year as; envelopes will probably be

The deceased young man, aged 2S,  was a favorite wiih a great many people who respected him for his many  gocd qualities and gentlemanly bearing.  He was a member or the Methodist  church and being naturally a musician he became organist and occupied  that position with great credit, to himself and advantage to the church  for over seven years.  Until about seven years ago he lived on the farm at Cedar Valley, when  he entered into partnership with Mr.  A. (J. Griffin in the plumbing and tin-  smithing business. After two yc-irs  Mr. Griffin's interests were sold one  to Mr. E. J. Abbott, when father and  eon carried on th business under tlie  name of Abbott & Abbott.  He enlisted with the Canadian Engineers for overseas duty in March  1918, going overseas in June 1918  and was placed in the camp at Sea-  ford    <���������  Shortly'after reaching England he  was drafted into the C. E. Band as a  clarinet player. About a month ago  he was chosen as one of sixty out of  seven bands to go to London to play  at the funeral of the late General Sam  Steel. During thc last month he  played for nine days with his band in  the Grafton Galleries, London, where-  Canadian army pictures were being  shown; and had the pleasure of playing before- the Queen there.  During his stay in England on his  leaves of absence lie visited many-  parts of England and Scotland. He  saw the thousands of war A'ossels surrendered by the Germans.

Ever  since-he had,been receiving enquiries  from   soldiers   by   mail  and   by   telephone.     The facts of the case arc that  there are a  number of    farmers     ir.  Matsqui',   a.s   doubtless   elsewhere, in  the Fraser Valley, who own .1 GO acres  each, but are farming only a portion  of their holdings.     The rest are    in  bush, and are absolutely useless    to  tho  owners  who  are simply  paying  taxes on them.    These men are very  willing to give fifteen or twenty acres  of bush land to soldiers, but. such a  gift would be useless there were some  comprehensive clearing scheme which  would enable soldiers to    get    those  landB cleared by other than their individual efforts.
