PRIEST���������BOWLBY  whose appeal has been turned down  by the Mothers' Pension Board, because her husband did not die in  British Columbia, sislti.d the council  to endorse her request for a pension,  as'her husband had lived in the province 23 years. She had been here  18 years, and all the children wert  born here. . She stated that her condition is "desperate, as she is unable  now to earn money. Seeing that her  husband only went to Nova Scotia  on a visit for six months, and died  there," the reeve thought her case  should be considered and agreed 'o  write privately to the minister.  Apology Due,  Turning, to reports of committees,  the councillors unanimously agreed  that an apology from tuem was due  to the ladies of the Clayburn Institute and should be forwarded at once  by the clerk. A committee had be������n  appointed at the last meeting to join  these ladies in an inspection of the  Hazelwood cemetry grounds. The  day appointed was very wet, the men  shirked the weather, but seven ladies  kept the appointment undaunted.  The clerk, in asking forgiveness,  will beg the ladies to set their own  date this time, and the men will not  fail them.  Conu. Benson suggested that the  council should demand that all future  subdivision plans show their proposed roads in profile. These roads  on plans look beautifully level and  smooth, in actuality they may run  over unnlimable hills or go '.hrough  impassable bogs, and a little detour  may save much cost and labor.

"--ARTHUR ivlEfGHEN.  WOMEN OF CANADA, the coming General Election will be one of the most  momentous in Canadian history, and Arthur Meighen "usk3 YOU to give the issut  fair, unbiassed consideration.  Women and men alike ?.re called upon , to 'decide whether "political, industrial and  economic stability is to be replaced by class rule, political and industrial chaos and  possible economic bankruptcy. './���������'  The facts are clear, and every Canadian woir.r.n will do her own thinking. She will  not be misled by others. She wiil not blindly follow family political precedent,'.neitner;  will she be carried away by the false theories or empty "isms" of theorists and'.ex-'  tremists. Every woman will arrive at a personal decision by .the applicationy.of  practical common sense.  The great issue is the^Taviff ar.d here zve briefly the fncts.  - .   ���������  The present Canadian Tariff, so far as it affects the necessaries of life," is a very .  moderate one.    It is simply a tariff maintained to keep Canadian factories in Canada,  employing a steadily increasing volume of Canadian labor and developing Canadian  resources.  Meighen stands firm for the continuance of a reasonable tariff.. It is now even mors  imperative than in the'past. Ali other important countries are retaining or increasing  their tai'iffs in order that they may Jmld their home marjsets for their own people.  Under Crerar's Free  Trade policy   Canada  would  be  swamped  with  foreign  goods,  principally   from  the   United   States,   Canadian   industry   would   be  ruined,   thousands'  of men and women  would  be out of woik with ail  the hardships to'themselves and  their children that rr.u^t result.    The furniei-'s great home market would-be seriously  affected, taxes would  be inerei-.sod, and Canadian working men' would have to go to  the United States for employment.  While King's Tariff policy is wobbly it nevertheless tends, toward the destruction of  the Tariff and would bring wii.li it practically the-same results.  MEIGHEN'S POLICY KV liRVBODV KNOWS. It is the only means whereby  confidence may be ���������maintained and employment'given to all  classes of the people.  The foregoing is a plain statement of logical conclusions arrived at from the facta.

Meeting at the  mill on Wednesday, the ratepayers of  the Matsqui municipality in the section adjoining the townsite, agreed  by a four-fifths majority to have  their property included in the Abbotsford school district for school  purposes. The folloing evening th.-.  landowners on the Sumas side of the  town met in the Alexandria Hall and  after a warmly debated discussion  came to a similiar conclusion by a  narrow margin of votes. On Friday  the Abbotsford people met with the  result, of these meetings before them,  and decided unanimously to ap,-!y  for an extension of their school area  yito. the two adjoining miniicipaii  ties.  At the present time Matsqui and  Sumas supply more pupils .than does  Abbotsford and contribute 60 per  cent of the cost of upkeep. This contribution carries no right of representation on the Abbotsford board nor  on the other hand can the outside dis  tricts be called upon "to assist in tho  new buildings. The townsfolk were  then left to erect new buildings for  outside pupils.    The way out    of. the  area of the school district so that the ratepayers sending  children to Abbotsford should pay  school taxes to that centre. The government will now be asked to advise  on procedure as there'are legal steps  to be taken and arrangements for  the collection of school taxes from  the municipalities. A plebiscite may  yet be necessary before the school  boundaries can be changed.  For Music in  Your Homes  These Long  Evenings  .ROADS OP SUMAS ARE  I        .

Metaphorically speaking,  they may have been shaken all on!  of existence.!  . A. land-owner, objecting to the by-  ���������'���������law-" which   'established  a    proposed  road,   appealed   to  the     Lieutenant-  Governor, that  he withhold  his consent" and-the council    on ' Saturday  "awoke to the clause in "the    M'unici  par Act "which states that the consent  . of -the King's .representative  is  part  of the legal procedure in establishing  a right-of-way.  ! . This was.new to the council. . So  far as they could ascertain it was  new to every other municipal council. Roads had been established by a  thrice-read by-law, .and its publication in the B. C. Gazette and tiie local paper, with registration in the  .County- Court and land registry office.. Who ever thought of bothering  the Lieutenant-Governor with their  'little roads. But there it is, in section 823, "with the consent of tne  Lieutenant-Governor."  The municipal solicitor throws no  light on the question. Perhaps the  inspector of municipalities may. Ht  will   be   consulted   immediately.  Engineer Humphrey suggested at  t)y% same meeting of the council that  the prairie lands be resurveyed. Whether the high waters of recent years  have washed out datum lines, landmarks and iron posts in not stated,  but?all township 19 should be re-  plotted, according to the ' surveyor.  Fearing that they may be losing their  lands as well as the roads, the councillors have visited Mr. Humphrey to  attend their next meeting and give  reasons.  The Sutherby subdivision near Abbotsford was cancelled altogether by  the council, who also voted $2K0 for  the-  gravelling    of   Whatcom    road  south of the B. C. E. R. and ^appointed a committee of Councillors.  Austin, Lamsbn and Frith, with the  reeve, to meet the Matsqui Council  on Wednesday next, to discuss' the  boundary road west of Huntingdon.  RECLAMATION IS A  COSTLY PROJECT  !     VICTORIA, "Nov.  1 0.���������The sum of  $154,295" has been  expended  by the  government on  preliminary work  in  connection  with the Sumas reclamation scheme, according to answers fil  ed yesterday afternoon- in the Houfe  by Hon. E. D. Barrow, on request or  Mr. .1. VV. Jones, Conservative member    for    South      Okanagan.      This  amount is other than that expended  I by  the  Land    Settlement  Board    iu  Ibnnection with the contract with the'  , Marsh   Construction   Company    and  ^nay be connected with the admission  made by Premier    Oliver last    week  that the scheme would probably cost  more  than  was originally estimated.  More evasive are the answers    of  the Minister of    Agriculture to a request   , for    information    by    Geor-rci  Hanes    of    North     Vancouver.     Mr,  F.  N.   Sinclair, as chief engineer of  the project, is in receipt of $5000 pc  annum  while the    engineering costs  to date are set at $67,423.    To;   the  question as to    what    position    Mr.  Strong, said to be an American citizen,  is  holding in  connection     with  the work,  Hon.  Mr. Barrow    stated  that he    had no    information    other  than he was employed by the contractor.    The same applied to a question  as to    what    collection the    Tacoma  Construction Company had with  the  Marsh   Construction   Company.'  i  Why does A. G. A. smile so these  day? We tried to find out today but  he iuaf smilpd on. Something is  suiting him, because that smile does  not appear -to come off.
