Every Other Saturday at I  n. m.  i  AUCTIONEER  Office"ext McPhee's Stable  P. 0. Box 94  SUMAS COUNCrij  -   WHATCOM ROAD; May 11.���������In a  ^session ..of.y.ery..varied .business',  on  Saturday,   the    Sumas   Council*    endorsed the stand of the School Board  "in requesting of    the    education department a school  on the McKenzie  road.  This is a thickly . settled district  of small holders who find too little  accomodation for their children at  the Abbotsford School.  As the .board paid Abbotsford  $7 00 last year for tuition 'and expenses', it is considered that the municipality could well support a school  of its own In this district.  As if to show there was no ill  feeling against Abbotsford in this  . move, the council voted a donation' of  $3 00 to the new hospital fund, and  $100 to the Abbotsford-Sumas Agricultural Society, towards the expenses of a fall fair.  The big Suthcrby subdivision near  Abbotsford is to be cancelled by  their permission. The cancellation  of Fourth street extension east will  be held up until the international  boundary road is open for traffic.  The Saar Creek bridge on the Vye j  road, beyond Evan Thomas' station j  is to be rebuilt and Messrs. Nelles \  and Graham are requested to remove their fences along tiie new i  division of the ��������� Yale road between  . Whatcom   and   St rat ton   roads.  Mr*. W. Padden again revived the  old question of tlie removal of Whatcom road crossing on the B. 0. K.  Railway.  A much easier grade and approach  would be made by putting the crossing a few rods westward and a dangerous turn on the Vye road would  be made less risky.  The council will take up the matter at a special meeting.  The act of the DeLair Condensery  in turning, their milk washings into  McCrimmon ' ' Creek, which ' joins  Marshall :Creek and runs across-the  prairie, -wascoriderhned by the council as being objectionable to 'stock  and fish. The company will be requested to make ��������� other disposal -of  their   drainage.  TRESTLE  FILLING  MEANS  SAFER LINE  WHATCOM ROAD, May. 11.���������The  B. C. E. R. Co. is filling in the trestle  between- Whatcom road and Ved-  dar mountain.' Trains have been  running over the fill at Oifford for  some time and tlie big fill above  South West'iiiihster is progressing:  The filling in of all trestles along the  line is a great improvement and will  add considerably to the safety and  efficiency of the line. The fill at  South Westminster is a big undertaking and has proved a very costly  business for the company It will  do away with the long, high trestle,  which is not considered too safe, although experts' say it does not vibrate one-sixteenth of an inch when  the heaviest freight train is passing  over it. All.trains slow down at the  trestle, which crosses a long ravine,  100  feet deep.  . -A meet),:.:; oi the G: W. -V.

SPARROW  MOUNT LEHMAN, May 11.��������� Saturday was donation giving day with  the Matsqui council, severai rec'U :i*ts  for financial aid being listened to in  a friendly attitude and sum.-, ranging  from. $50 0 to $5 being sanctioned.  The larger sum was for the-Abbots  ford hospital, on'the board of which  Is' Reeve McCallum; The Matsqui  Agricultural Society were successful  in securing a grant of $100 while the  Abbitsford fair association succeeded  in persuading . the council to part  with a $50 cheque. The Matsqui  Women's Institute came next.with a  modest appeal for $5 as a prize at the  annual flower show* to be held at  Clayburn on June 25.  Little discussion took place on the  report of the successful action against the municipality by the Royal Columbian hospital, the case being  more or less a test one and amounted  to a matter of $2000.  The real kick of the afternoon  came with ' tho reading or a letter  from Chief Engineer" Philip of tho  Provincial Department of Public  Works, to the effect that the government expected Matsqui to assume a  portion of the cost of maintaining  the old Yale road which passes through the district to the extent of  seven miles. To add to their troubles',  the council learned that the government expected a fifty-fifty split on  the cost of upkeep of the Riverside  road running from Abbotsford to  Mission. Municipal Clerk LaFcvre  was instructed to write to Victoria to  the effect that tlie council "could'  not approve."  While In this frame of mind the  solicitors were ordered by the council  to hurry up the B. C. Electric Railway in getting power arid light lines  laid  through Matsqui.  Tenders for various contracts  showed, that the spring', seeding  nearly over the farmers are freer to  take up road workr'  A. C.

When the trial of the . action of  Morrison vs. The Dewdney Dyking  .Commissioners was called on Monday it.was announced that Mr. J, R<:  Morrison, the plaintiff, had died  Sunday night. By consent of coun-  f'l.l'he widow takes his place &s  plaintiff. The case has"' already  continued for over two weeks and  will likely last for some time ret.  Mri Morrison was one of the- older*;', residents of the Hutzie district,  and a, lead lug farmer, Recent infirm  a tics had thrown the conduct of his  affairs on his sons, - and the action  now before the courts had been started on Mr. Morrison's behalf, by a  committee in lunacy entrusted ,*wlth  tlie task of looking lifter his affaire. .  The lawsuit is being followed with'  great interest by .local engineers,  farmers and the legal fraternity. Ft  arises out of permissou given by Mr*  Morrison many years ago to the  Dowdnoy cdyking commissioners to  ml. a canal through his land on their  j undertaking .to protect his property  from damage.  '  | Last year the Morrison farm was ���������  'flooded and heavy damage done. Mr.  ���������S. S. Taylor, K. C, and -Mr. W. S.
