The assessment roll for 1918, prepared by C. St. G. Yarwood, municipal clerk, was accepted in toto. The  court of revision on the assessment  will be held between the hours of 12  a.m. and 2 p.m. on June 1st. As the  assessment this year does not differ  from the 1917 roll it is not expected  that'there will be any appeals or disputes.  To enable the council to meet its  current obligations in school: cxpen_  ��������� diture and road repairs, a loan bylaw was prepared allowing the council to borrow $5000 against this  year's tax account. This bylaw passed  its final reading, and the loan will be  drawn upon forthwith.  The council made an appeal to the  government road superintendent for  the repair of t he roads on Huntingdon tovvnsite, through which the municipality reaches the various railroads at Huntingdon . These roads  are getting much the worse for  wear.  The expenses of the dyking delegation to Victoria were paid, together with $460 of school salaries  and incidentals , and various small  bills for road repairs.  The appeal of the Y.M.C.A. Red  Triangle Fund to the council was  heartily endorsed by the reeve, who  recommended that $50 be voted by  the council to this.good cause. The  council agreed to donate this amount  Coarse Gravel the Hodoo of the Road  The road has been receiving some  attention near Gilford.

The addresses which were given were very interesting and on topics intersting to all.  The boys were in swimming on  Wednesday evening for the first time  this season.  S'Tgt.

The Trethewey family visited Mr.  Trefhewey's sister    Mrs.    Brett    in  IChillhvack on Sunday.  The Matsqui council made a grant  of $2 00 to the Y. M. C. A. overseas  fund, Salurday. This is the same as  lnsl year.  "I think we should make a contribution/ (o show we are with the 'V  in (he big campaign they are about  lo start for funds to carry on the  work at the front," said Reeve Mc-  Callum. by way of introducing (he  subject.  "Is this the first time (he Y. M.  C. A. have come around?" asked  Coun. McLean, who was not in tlie  council   lust  year.  "Of course this is the first general  nation-wide campaign they have  made. Last year 1 think wo gave  them $200," answered the reeve.  Another councillor wished to know  if any of the money was to be used  for maintaining the Y. M. C. A. at  home, and was told it was. all for  the overseas branch. "I. think the  demands on the 'Y' at the front are  greater now than ever," commueted  Councillor Aish. It was evident the  council were strongly in sympathy  with the project, and the motion that  the association be granted this a-  mount was carried  unanimously.

It  needs grading up and the ditch scraped out and a coat of gravel put on.  This was referred to Coun. Melauder  -who will have the work done.  The C. N.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, MAY .1.0, J WIS  Monday last was the eighth ann'iversary of  tlie accession to the Uritish throne of,. His  Majesty King Cleorge V. The clay will awaken mixed memories, for it was on May (5th,  1910, that King Edward VI I. breathed his last.  The widespread grief which that event awakened testified to .the appreciation in which  the late king was held all over the world. Me  morial services and funeral dirges that gave ex  pression to the" sentiments of millions, ushered in the new King's reign. Not yet had  "The Day" come to be regarded as anything  but an empty boat on the part of the Germans.  Among those who walked in procession behind the funeral car of tlie Peacemaker was  the Kaiser, cherishing even then, as he had  ever been wth respectful interest, dreams of  the-day when his autocratic power would extend to the great, metropolis.  The short reign of King Cleorge has been  destined to be.among most eventful in Britain's long history. In the crisis which has for  four years been confronting the Empire he has '  played the part of a constitutional monarch  and he has played ,it well. He has gained the  respect of a world in which some thrones have  toppled and are toppling. His royal position  has been no sinecure, and by his active interest in all dirctions in which his influence could  . legitimately be exerted, he has shown himself  as at one.with his people and the sailors and  soldiers who are giving their life-blood for  freedom and righteousness. Again we may  say that under the British constitution Britishers the world-,over are as free and in sime  respects-freer than is the case in any republic  That freedom has ".broadened down from precedent to precedent" and mouldering branches have, been lopped away.  Nor is it possibe on this occasion of anniversary, .to forget the services rendered to the nation by the royal consort of His Majesty,  who has proved herself to be a true' woman  and has shown in these dreadful times a discerning sympathy that can not be too highly  appreciated. She has carried on the Victorian  tradition of domestic exemplariness. As the  strains of "God Save the King" echo round the  world today, she, too, .will be remembered with  cheerful acclaim.���������Province.  Canada faces new conditions and new problems. We "do no: know when peace will  come nor what will follow. It may be r.hat the  period of readjustment will be long and difficult. ; Possibly there .is no sound ground for  apprehension or anxiety. It is certain, however, that we will adopt wise measures of social, industrial and national policy according  as we have knowledge of conditions in. other  countries and ..sympathetic, comprehensive,  adequate understanding of the bases of our  own industrial fabric, the dangers to which it  may be exposed and the defences which muse  be maunaim-d.  -   The objects of the Canadian Industrial Reconstruction Association are (1) to maintain  industrial stability and (2) to secure wise consideration and-prudent treatment of problems  of Reconstruction.    Parliament will legislate  more wisely and the public will judge measures of legislation more fairly   if    accurate  knowledge is afforded of actual conditions in  the country and the probable effects of new  legislation.      investigation will be made into  the conditions of various industries, the markets which they must supply, the wages paid to  labor as compared with the wages paid in competitive industries elsewhere, and the relative  charges for transportation.    Tt will endeavor  lo assist in the extension and development of  technical and general    education.      II.    will  .���������maintain a sympathetic atittude towards, projects of land settlement, organizations to extend co-operaion  among rural  products and  plans to 'improve1 rural condition?;. It will give  its  suport  to ���������movements���������whether  directed  by leaders of Labor or Employers of Labor���������  which aim at establishing relations between  Labor and Capital; and recognizing the equal  rights of citizenship which women have acquired it will seek to improve their position  u\ industry and co-operate as far as opportunity offers with women's organizations in investigating and improving conditions which  pecularly affect the domestic, social and industrial welfare of women.  If a politician wishes to know by infallible  test whether he will ever make a statesman let  him attempt to solve the Irish Home Rule  question. If he can make three correct guesses out of five as to what the political situation  in Ireland will be in the course of a single  week his political career is assured.  Irish politics are the most'facinating study  in the world. ' They follow no known laws  and not even the wisdom of a Gladstone or a  ' Salisbury can forecast for a month possible  developments.. Look.at the present imbroglio for instance, says' the Vancouver World.  Here is a country wherein one-third of the  people are quite content with Their present  government and their Parliament. - [-lore is  another third of the people who want their  own government and their own Parliament  with "power1 to lax the first mentioned third  because it happens to have most of the money.  And here ist he final third who seek absolute  independence of the British empire'and are  willing to call in German help to secure it.  This country is very prosperous. Two-thirds  of it has not'done its bit i'u the war. One-  third of it has���������-but is quite ready for conscription nevertheless. The next third refuses  conscription at any price and on the issue goes  over bodily to the final third which would  shoot'down British soldiers rather ';han be  compelled to shoot down German. Then there  is the additional complication of the Church's  influence.  . Again, the section that welcomes conscription will not have Home Rule; the section that  hates conscription asks for such extended  Home Rule that the authority of the Imperial  Parliament would vanish altogether; and the  final section will fake nothing but a republic.  Mr. Lloyd George has to give Home Rule  to some party in Ireland. One party docs not  want it, being satisfied as if is; another wants  .more than Mr. Lloyd George can give; and the  final third wants nothing but the overthrow of  British government altogether. So there you  are.  What is a poor but honest British statesman  to do? So far what he has done is to postpone  conscription in spite of the vital'need of men;  to draft a Home Rule Bill which will give  Dominion autonomy to Ireland as part of a  scheme of Federal Home Rule for the- whoie  United Kingdom; and to meet Ulster's objections by giving his power to veto legislation  specifically applying to it.  It looks like a workable scheme. It might  meet'the present situation. But the point is  will it meet the situation-that will have supervened in Ireland a month or six weeks lie/ice  when the measure becomes law?  The Farmerettes and the ''Sons of the Siol" should  have many a contest hitching and harnessing the Ford  cars.  A Canadian Senator the other clay thought that a  greater .number of children running around the yard  was better than a good fence. But somebody bluffed  him out of it.  There are all kinds of party heelers and proteges  of the provincial government over in Chilliwaok this  "week; and if the government candidate don't win it  wont be for want of boosting.  Weather such as we are having could not lit made  to order by any human power. It should make' the  farmer happy, and gladden the heart of the warrior.

Sproule    desirod   to   bridge  the  iavino     betweon     Ituskin     and  Whonnock,   which   besides  saying   a  roundabout of some five miles would  -     improve the social relations between  Ihe  two  districts.   He  was  inloniied !  that a petition would be presented to  the council  on ��������� the subject, .-t would  cost approximately  $1)00;   too   much  to  fake  out  of  the road  appropriations, and lie suggested a special appropriation for the purpose. One land  owner  had  offered- the land  on  one  side of the ravine necessary lor (.he  road  continuation   free.   The  one  on  the opposite side, wliilo at first equally public spirited, reflected, and on  second thoughts decided to sell, asking $5 0 an    acre  for his    property.  Coun. Sproule, however, thought an_  other route obviating the'-paying for  the land might bo negotiated.  The reeve sympathized with the  desire to bridge the chasm between  Ruskin and Whonnock people and  obliterate the dividing line, which he  understood, was as distinct as the  international boundary.

HLe considered, however, that the  council might advantageously build  the bridge themselves provided Coun  Sproule secured the right-of-way He  suggested the Councillor instruct the  engineer to report on the best .site  and cost, etc., and the matter will be  taken up at the next meeting. This  was agreed  to.  The appointment of road foreman  for beats six and seven occasioned a  discussion more prolonged than it. appeared   to  merit.     At the preceding  ,   meeting the present occupant of the  job,  Foster,  applied    before  tenders  had been called for and received the  temporary appointment until the advertising formality was executed. The  only  other   applicant     was  John   E.  Walker.  Reeve Ansell asked what about  giving the job to a returned soldier.  William Webster was back from Europe and expected his discharge soon  Coun. Lilley, who superintends the  works of the beats and who had ro-  commended Foster's temporary appointment said he had no objection  to Mr. Webster. It was an inconvenience that he would be residing in  Haney, four miles away from him.  The councillors were unanimous  that this difficulty could be overcome, but as it was not certain  whether Mr. Webster would take tlie  job, it was resolved to make an alternative appointment, as a foreman  was urgently n-eded.  A letter from Mr. P. Wylie. road  foreman for Dewdney district, asking  the council to inform him of the  milage of the roads and trails in the  municipality evoked the startling expression from Coun. Lilley, "What is  up now?"  Some doubt as to the exact mileage  existed. The reeve said tlie last time  it was computed it was 115 miles but  other roads and trails have b.'-en constructed since. It was resolved to  call it 125 miles approximately  The scarcity of men is vary manifest. Bridge Foreman Gilles was empowered to pay experienced men on  his bridge gang up to-������4 a da\.

As the school board decided last  February to hold its meetings in the  library of the central schools instead  of in the council chambers, it was  found necessary to obtain a table for  use of the board at its sittings and  Mr.  Illingworth, manual training in-  the present practical otlucutional ef_  fort and unless a misfortune 'befalls  it it should be in evidence for at  least the next 200 years associating  the name of Mr. Cade as an educationist of the period of thy great war.  Tlie ��������� trustees are proud of the line  table as it is a splendid example of  splendid progress made in the work  of the technical school.
