WAR WORK  PONE m FRANCE  A great deal of praise is due  the Y. M. C. A. for the excellent work done during the war  both on the scene of battle and  behind the lines, and the follow  ing interesting facts about the  work will be educational:  1. None of the money now  being raised, will be used for the  ordinary work of the Y.M.C.A.  All will be used for the National Militia Service.  2. The Association has 114-  Military Secretaries Overseas  and over 1700 assistants serving the soldiers.  3. The Y. M. C. A. has 140  Military Centres, forty-five in  Canada, fifty, in England, and  fifty-one in France.  4. A typical Overseas centre  has a building 30x100 feet, a  marquee 30x90 feet with a  platform, writing tables, chairs  canteen, gramaphone, piano  and moving picture apparatus.  5. We have one hundred  pianos, three hundred grama-  phones and twenty-seven small  and large moving picture machines in England and France.  6. From sixty thousand to  seventy-five thousand cups of  hot tea and coffee are distributed free at the firing line daily,  costing us not less than $500  per day.  7. On hiUKlrad una for?.;-  thousand mgazines are dis-  buted gratuitously every month  S. One thousand dollars is  spent in England alone. These  concerts are frequently attended by over one thousand men.  9. All athletic requirements  are furnished free to the troops  One single overseas order for  baseball equipment totalled  $25,000, a larger sum than is  spent annually by either of the  American Major Leagues.  10. One million sheets of paper are distributed free each  month. The soldiers are encouraged to use this reely and  thousands of letters were written home that would never  have been written but for the  facilities afforded. It is estimated that thirty thousand letters are written daily by Canadian soldiers in our Overseas  buildings.  11. Ten days after the Canadians began their Somme offensive", the Y. M. C. A. had thirty-  seven centres operating on the  battlefields. New marquees,  transportation and depreciation  cost for this one move, thirty-  four thousand dollars.  12. During the month of February alone, equipment purchas  ed and supplies furnished free  of charge to soldiers in England  and .France cost fifty-seven  thousand dollars.  13.

We are asked why docs  not the Government pay for  this work? The Government  bears the major cost of transpor  tation, and the majority of  the Association Officers Overseas are paid on the Military  scale. Therefore, the Associat  ion spends most of its money  directly on comforts and services for soldiers. The cost: of  administration overseas is less  than one per cent.  15. The Y. M. C.

Keeley  $11..75; l-Jenry Skipworth $48; A. P.  Welch $15. John Upton $125.90;  and C. E. Gephart $1.77. The contractors on this work were Messrs B.  C. Keeley and A. F. Welch.  A.  letter  from Mr.  H.  H.  Flower-  dew,   secretary   of   the   Glen   Valley  Land   Company,  stated  that he  was  instructed   by   the   directors   of   the  company to inform the council that  this company has    had    ten    acres,  situated" in" tlie -southeast quarter of  section 28, township 14, slashed and  burnt, and has let a contract to Mr.  J.   J.   Sullivan to-put a stock fence  around the ten-, acres.    All this work  will  constitute improvements,       the  lettre pointed out.     On this quarter  section  two  of the  directors  of the  land company went over the Bradner  road a short time ago and begged to  call the council's attention to the very  steep  hill  on  the road  between th  north half of section 28 and 27. This  hill, they thought, should be made so  that vehicles can go up and down in  safety. Mr. Sullivan said that he was  prepared to take a contract to make  the necessary improvements  on thi  hill and the company hoped that the  council would see its way to have the  work done.      The company also desired  that the  council  should  slash  out the road running eaost and west  through section 28 and also the road  running through the middle of sec  tion  27.     It is the intention  of th  company to do further improvements  in the way of slashing and fencing in  the  southeast  quarter  of section   28  and thus would like to have the road  referred  to  slashed  out as  soon  a  possible.  The concil stated that they wouii  slash out the road through section  28, but not the other one, as it was  in the middle of the section. The  matter was left in the hands of Councillor Owen.  Tenders for work on  three road  were opened and the contracts wen  let.     For stumping, logging and grai  ing,^he Huntingdon road east of the  Banerman road there were four ten  ders. viz: N. Prasiloski, $244; E. W  Mouldey   $260;   A:   F.   Welch   $27.  and   Chas.   F.   Little   of   Abbotsfon  $205.    The contract was let to thf  lowest tenderer.

Bur-      The question of crossings over the  ope.���������Asqtlith. | Matsqui dyke is one that is causing  Saturday, October 13th, will  be an important day for many  a young man.  considerable  difficulty.    The  council  contend that certain roads were gaz-  oted   long   ago   and   that   afterwards  the dyke was built by the provincial.  government and that the dyke made  an  obstruction   on   the. roads   which  had been gazetted, but not-built.      In  ansewer to a letter asking the dates  of   construction   of   the   Aish-Walter  and-Smith's  crossings,  A.  E.   Foreman, public works, department engineer for Chilliwack district, has replied that the crossing on the Aish-  Walter road was constructed by the  provincial government in   H108,   but  that no road exists to his knowledge  between district lots 69 and 380.  In  regard to Smith's crossing, he indicated that htoeeylnrroadmwascfmpwpy  ted   that   the   only   record'  he   has  shows a crossing over tlie dyke ditch  in    the northwest quarter of section  j 8 near Mr. Smith's house, but that   ���������  no dyke crossing exists between sections 13 and 16 as the council contends.    The council decided to write  Mr. E.  D. Barrow, M. L. A., for the  district, asking him to have a crossing gazetted over the dyke between  district   lots  379a  and  378a on  the  Beharrell road.  A letter received from W. J. Han-  na, food controller of Canada, asking  the council to give publicity to his  mandate that the price of milk be  not advanced until his board could  present a ruling which would be before October 31, was received and  ordered filed.  The minutes of the meeting of the  New  Westminster   District  Agricultural Association held on    Sepr.     28,  were read and placed on file.    This  association has in hand the plans for  a new market to be in the place or  the present ono soon to be removed.  The minutes include a statement of  the articles of incorporation.    One of  the articles outlines a plan of having  a cold  storage plant owned and operated by the city of New Westminster and of the market association to  iease a part of it at cost price.     The  scheme provides for a board of one  member   from   each   district  council  and five appointed by the council of  New Westminster, and    gives    each  council power to revoke its appointment and to make a grant of not over  Si000 at the discretion of each council.    It stipulated that no council be  held for the debts of the market corporation, and that    reports    of    all  transactions are to go to each council monthly, and that the assets    of  the corporation  may  hot be divided  among individuals, but shall be used  to extend the activities and  usefulness of the market in the collection,  transportation and    distribution    of  produce.  m  mMBMSMBhBgBm .'���������^1���������  aABaaniss&s  THE ABBOTSFORD POST  &'ut)llshed'-;every   Fridayi-* by   the   Post  - Publ-j8hiii&-.Gomp{uiy.ii;, ...    ._   i,  A weekl'y'-.J'oxi'rlial5'devoted' to thl������ Interests of Abboia'ioid and sui������. -'lading district. , , ������������������ "r-.v;.  tHE ABBOTSFORD POS*. rABBOTSFORD, B. ������.

If  subscriptions    were      stopped  many people and    many    corporations now paying from, one  thousand to-  twenty . thousand  dollars a year will be relieved,  but there will be .a .charge,-of  some ten millions a .year added  to the federal or provincial war  expenditure.

There are.-apmei criticises of  the way this . fund-is - administered,  but the complaints, are  surprisingly,  few . .considering  the fact that several thousand  wives and mothers1 are receiving money    front  this source.

If:.;,the -Patriotic,  Fund  should cease "and a'payment by  the government should take Its  place' a considerable number of  officials might.be required'to do  the business .which ,is. now, performed, by  unpaid, volunteers.  The fund would, probably be put  on a different.basis,.so:that the  wives of wealthy soldiers would  receive the same as-the-families which are entirely dependent on the .earnings' of 'the soldier. ..Many families of. soldiers  in this province, do,not receive  and have not sought any allowance from this spurce,and. some  of these are themselves contributors.    If the payment is based entirely on services rendered  and  not upon  the requirement, of. the. families, then ail  wives and mothers,  will   .have  an equal, claim   whether , they,  are dependent upon   the   soldier's, earnings    or.   not.        All  these aspects of the case ought  to be    considered.

"The reclamation of the now practically waste lands,  of untold fertility at the mouth  of Kootenay river  would add immensely to the area of  agricultural  lands  both  in  this province and in the neighboring state of  Idaho.    It would prove of some benefit (o various other parts of the Kootenay  lake and  river drainage  basin  as well. But-the main thing from our  standpoint is that it would  increase  the  area  of   British   Columbia  agricultural   lands   by-  several   thousand  acres of tlie richest soil that ever was  Of course'Creston would be the chief  beneficiary, and it is-for that reason  that the good   people-down  in  that  neighborhood have been banging the  cymbals and the big drum so enthusiastically  on- behalf  of  the  scheme.

ALKRT   LEE,   Grocsr  Official Bodies Must Pass on Each  Man Called Up Under Military  Service Act.  Ottawa, Oct. 9.���������A number of  doctors throughout the country have  been writing; here to ask if a certificate of physical unfitness from a family physician will be acceptable at  face value by a Medical Board instituted under.the Military Service Act  The answer returned was a prompt  negative.  Experience has ' shown that some  family physicians, are liable to be  placed in an awkward position if  certificates of physical unfitness  granted by them are competent to  secure freedom of responsibility  under the Military Service Act for  the sons of some of their patients.  Doctors might easily be subjected  to annoyances of a most disagreeable kind if the idea were to spread  that anyone of them, with a wave  of his pen, might exempt a young  man from military service. Under  the scheme by which the Military  Service Act is operated, the authorities will be guided by the .official  Medical  Boards.  port conscription in any form  and follow Laurier. The district feels'it rather an. honor  and ao should we all that the  Liberals would ask a .Judge to  step down from the Bench to  contest our constituency _ but  when the public know the full  story they will not take "hira  seriously. .Below is a true synopsis of his wanderings:  ' While the Conservatives have  been mobilizing the Man Power  and the Money Power of Canada, in the Compulsory Service  Act, the War Profits Act, and  the Income Tax Act, the Liberal'and Laurier opposition  meet them with the mobilization of Lung Power. So "Billy"  Mclnnes ceased to be a judge  and takes to the political field  as the Big Noise of British Columbia. Significantly, he goes  awy from his own territory  into Comox-Albcrni the only  district on the coast not connected with previous activities  of this political rocket.  With Billy it is always "time  for a change." That was his  slogan when as the Boy Orator  he contested Nanaimo in 1896,  for the House of Commons.  That was the year when Canada  turned from Conservative to Liberal, and change being in the  air Billy succeeded; and in a  few months he was at Ottawa  proclaiming himself as  Voice of the'Pacific. In  Commons he undertook to set  right the great Edward Blake,  with the result that the Toron-  [ to Globe administered to the  Boy Orator a castigation from  which he never recovered, and  when the time for the next election came Billy made a volunt-  a ry exit from the Commons. He  determined to save British Columbia instead of all Canada,  and stood for Nanaimo for the  legislature at Victoria.  The electors gave Billy another chance; and iii the legislature the problem of the successive ministries became how  to dodge his attempts to get  appointed a minister without  too deeply offending his fond  parent who was Lieutenant-  Governor.  Turner, Semlin and  Martin all could have had op-  lions on his talents within the  short space of two years,    but  in turn registered   the   sugest-  ion.    But   Billy   worked    Col.  Prior, who was next in order of  the shortlived array,of provincial premiers, and while   Prior  lasted Billy was in his glory as  Provincial Secretary; but,   this  was a matter of a few months  only.    Then he got himself appointed Commissioner for the  Yukon, only- to find that these  distant fields that had looked so  green were but ice-green    and  cold, so that in two years he  was back again claiming nomination in Vancouver   for   the  Commons.   But. Billy had made  so many voluntary .exits   from  good positions that the people  semed to have tired of. feeding  his ambitions, and he made   a  very sorry show of this candidature, and immediately became  a suppliant for another appointment, resulting in his becoming  a judge of the county court, Remarkable for him, he has held  that job  ever  since,  but  now  once  more  finds  that  he  has  been a misfit in "the place-of his  choice.    So the ex-M.    P.    for  Nanaimo, the ex-M. P. P., for  Nanaimo,    the    ex-Provincial  Secretary, the ex-Governor   of  the Yukon,    the    ex-candidate  for Vnacouver, the    ex-County  Court Judge   with   twenty-one  the'years of failure in   these   suc-  the cessive trusts, asks for a new  start  in  Comox-Alberni.���������The  Islander   Cumberland).
