The day was perfect as  was evrything else in connection with  the programme of the day.  There were twenty-eight entries in  the Parade "and it was a credit to  Aoboisford. The Judges were Messrs Reeve Munroe, It. McCrimmcn  and Mr. Marsh.

Mr. E. G. Walter addressed the  council in spport of these roads but  stated that the estimate furnished by  Mr. Seldon was too low. He estimated' that the gravelling would cost  $207 for the first half mile. . The  reeve informed him that until-, the  council had gone more thoroughly into the estimates for the year no definite answer could be given to the  "application, although Councillor McCallum stated that this work was included in his list and he hoped he  would he able to make substantial  improvements on these roads.

The  Reeve took issue with the writer as  to his power to close any highway  which had been established by- the  Highway Act of 1905, and while it  was desirable to establish roads on  the boundaries of properties the coun  cil was not compelled to do so. "Coun-  Owen was of the opinion that when  the owner of a small holding was  making substantial improvements on  his property the council should put  the road in its proper place so that  there might not be any-necessity of  again moving ,the fence. In answer  to a question the Councillor stated  that the $175.00 which had been appropriated to straighten this road did  not include this portion and while  the money had all been spent the  work for which it had been authorized was not completed.

A. BATES, -       - Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY,' MAY 14, 1915  WOMEN Am) CIIILDKEIN FIRST-  When the Titanic went,to the bottom of the sea as the:result  of collission with'an iceberg, the whole world,was horrified. A  little rejoicing was had however while talking of the great disaster and was probably the means of consoling many a stricken  father, mother, son or daughter, in the fact that the man���������the  wealthy and the poor alike���������stepped to one side and assisted  in-the rescuing of the women and children. It was 'the'ladies  first' It was a disaster over which'no human being had control  How different though is the latest tragedy, the brutal sinking  of the Lusitania. It was an act of men of a nation with a thirst  for vengeance on humanity; and it was not a case of saving-  the women and children,, as it is reported that tlie men on the  submarine stood and watched the effect of their handiwork  (excuse the word) No provision could be made for the saving  as apparently the premeditated act was thoroughly carried out  resulting in such confusion that probably fe.w had an* opportunity to think at all, not having recovered from the first shock.  The Anglo-Saxon world is horrified; foreign nations are not  backward in expressing opinion-of tlie nation responsible for  the deed. We all ask ourselves what manner of nation is this  that we all considered foremost in science, art,. education and  mechanical ability, only a few months ago. Down through  the ages, tlie stigma of the brutalities committed by the Huns  will be looked upon with horror and regret, and the military  "Black Hand, and the Bloody Heart" of the Kaiser and his staff  be held responsible for the greatest barabarisms of the twentieth  century or the days;, of the "Dark Ages".   -  Yes, aiid not ashamed of it, and the word comes.out from  Potsdam, 'Germany accepts the responsibility'.  .   Horrible crimes, are always punished sooner, or later; what  a punishment must surely await the Hun! ! !  "Crisis in B. C." appears to have stirred up. a hornet's nest  The Christian gentlemen who are apparently responsible for  the,pamphlet.are.certainly a living example of their own teachings.

Society felt  that the. suggestion was too valuable  to dismiss and decided to hold their.  ,'Sock Day" for British Columbia on  Empire and Victoria Days, May 23rd  and 24th.  On-these days, every, man, woman  and child in B. C. will have an opportunity to give one, or as many  pairs, of socks .as he. or she wishes,  and it is hoped that the -last great  western province will be the first In  its generosity.  British Columbia has responded to  the Empire's call for men, and it is  not too much to expect that those  who remain at home will respond as  nobly to the appeal for the soldiers  who are fighting their battles.  Canada thrilling with just  pride at the reports coming from the  battlefield in Flanders and she is  conscious of the fact that her sons  have proved to the world that they  too are British and can and will up-  ' hold the traditions of the Empire."  They have proved worthy of'their  heritage.  The reports have brought home to  Canada something more than the  news of the exploits of her gallant  sons. It has brought home a realization of the great duty which falls  upon the Canadians. Canadians at  home today have as great a duty to  perform as the men who wear the  King's uniform and are fighting in  Flandors. Our soldiers have upheld  the honor of Canada, and it remains  for those who cannot go to do their  part as nobly.  The casualty lists show clearly how  great the need will be. Many thousands of wounded men will be carried off the battle fields every week,  and upon the Red Cross Society revolves the duty of caring'for the majority of, them.  Shall,thse,men want for anything  that will save their lives or ease their  pain? Shall the men.who-have thus  far been-mercifully spared, be denied  the comfort of good woollen socks?  Will Canadians.allow, those who have  fought so bravely to go without  socks and endure the torture of blis-  tred and bruised feet: These questions will be and. are being-answered  by the efforts the public is making  to provide whatever is necessary.  Canadians in Canada will prove not  less worthy of their heritage than  have-their sons at the front'.  The Red Cl'oss Society has estimated that 50,0f)0. pairs of socks will be  necessary every week for the men .of  the Canadian contingent in France. .  One individual, or one city, cannot supply them, but individual effort multiplied by thousands ' will  meet the need. If every man, woman and child in B. C. will give  what they can, "Sock Day" will be a  wonderful success.  For the sake of the soldiers the  Red Cross Society is asking that every one who can, will make or buy  one or more pairs of socks or donate  half a pound of wool at the least,  which will be made up by Red Cross  Workers. Individuals and societies  are asked to take up the movement  and push it forward. All contribut-  tions should be mailed or brought in  to the Red Cross Central Depot, Industrial Bureau, corner of Cambie'  Street and Pender Street (183 Pender Street West) where they will be  listed ancl packed ready for the front  Arnold Bennet writes that the call  on the Red Cros3. Society during May  and June "will be terrific" and this  week's casualty Jists go far to bear  out his statement. Any person who  is willing to work for the men at the  front along general Red Cross lines  may obtain full information, patterns  etc. by applying to the Property Committee at the Central Depot, Vancouver. There is work for ever man,  woman.and child who will answer to  "the call of the Empire".  (The local Women's Institute will  be glad to receive socks on "Sock  Day" and forward them to Vancouver;)  MATSQTjI COUNCIL  (Continued from Page One)    ���������  Riverside road crossing by placing  thereon,two or three loads of gravel,  Carried. .   ���������  Elliott-McCallum, that the rate of  municipal wagesTfor Matsqui Municipality .)o as follows for 1915, to  start fro.n the 3rd day of May: For  man and team $4.00 for a day of 8  hours; for man with one horse $3.00  for a day of 8 hours.
