A. Wilmot, stating that he  had been advised by the Attorney-  General's department that maintenance funds 'cannot be used in the  construction of the crossing asked  fon by the council over the Beharrell  road. Laid on the table for future  consideration.  From J. W. Armstrong, asking if  there is any possiblity of the council  opening up the road leading to his  property, viz., the east half of the  west half of the S. E. 1-4 of Section  8 Tp. 14. Referred to Councillor Owen.  From W. A. Duncan, City Clerk,  New Westminster, stating that if  some good photographs of the municipality were sent to him he would  forward them to London, or they  mi'Jrht he sent to the Agent-General  of British Columbia in London, England. The reeve asked the councillors to ascertain if any were to be  had.  From Robert Stewart, enclosing  plans of two portions of the east half  of the N. E. 1-4 of S. 22, T. 16, with  surveyor's description of one portion  said description to be embodied in a  letter to the Registrar of Land Titles  expressing the willngness of the  Council to have the same registered  by metes and bounds. The clerk was  instructed to inform him that the description of the 9.812 acre portion is  imperfect because the existing wagon  road is enclosed in the acreage conveyed and is not as should be described as land excepted, and also because  the description lis "thence westerly  parallel to said boundary 9.692  chains, more or less to the easterly  boundary of a road." This road the  Council is not prepared to accept until the whole plan is considered for  acceptance.    It would  be necessary  for the council to have the description "of both pieces of property showing the exact location of the existing  road and not committing the council  to the acceptance of the road it is  proposed to provide on the westerly  boundary of the property.

If you think It is of sufficient interest  to your readers to deserve a place in  your columns, please insert- it in  your next Issue.  ;   "You  are particularly     requested  not to publish the announcement of  the distribution in    an    abbreviated  form, because by so doing you would  probably, give  an  incorrect  idea  as  to the conditions under "which    the  f,r<ee samples are sent out.

The value of the press  is at' once acknowledgement as a medium for distributing valuable information, and lacking the courtesy that  should be extended the press for a  favor asked and is no doubt written  by some 'understrapper' with a very  hlp.li. opinion of hmself and his little government :ob.  their money out of the Province to  China. Further this condition which  exists at this moment puts the farmer  of the Fraser Valley down to a, Chinese level and is undermining our national life and free citizenship. Further no trade or occupation, whether  manufacturing or producing, mechanic, machinist or tradesman of any  kind could or would allow the Chinese to compete and thus bring the  white man down to the Oriental wage  Therefore why should the farmer a-  lone be subjected to this deplorable  condition <  There are in the city of New Westminster) about 26 Chinese vegetable  peddlers; in Vancouver about 76 with  horses and rig. This does not include  the vast' number who peddle with the  pole and basket, leaching frof these  cities approximately $3,000,000 annually.  All of our Eastern  da and the U. S.

Samples  canot be.sent in .response to applications (no matter when received)  which fail to state' clearly the need  of the applicant, his experiences' in  crop-raising, and the character oi  the soil on which he intends to sou  the seed..''  All applications for grain (and applications- from the provinces of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes) should  be addressed to the Dominon Cereal-  ist, Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa. Such applications require no  postage. If otherwise addressed, delay and disappointment may occur.

The samples will consist-  of spring wheat (about 5lbs.) white  oats   (about 4  lbs)   barley '(about  5  lbs.) and field peas (about 5 lbs.)  These will be sent out from Ottawa.  A distribution of potatoes- (in -3  lbs.  samples)     will    be carried    on  from several of the Experimental  Farms, the Central Farm at Ottawa,  supplying only the provinces of Ontario and Quebec.  Each application must be separate  and must be signed by the applicant.  Only one sample of grain and one of  potatoes  can  be sent  to  each farm  If both samples axjs asked for in the  same letter1, only one will be sent. Applications on any kind of printed  form cannot be acccepted.  The destruction by fire of the cereal building at Ottawa, which contained grain-cleaning machinery and  a large stock of seed grain for distribution, may make it necessary to  curtail the distribution to a certain  extent.

A rumo'r has been persistently circulated in many cities in Canada to  the effect that the Canadian Red  Cross society was guilty of a breach  of faith with its contributors, by sell-  ir.'; instead of giving supplies to soldiers. This notion is of course on  (.he face of it awkwar.d and can give  /_  little credence with intelligent , people. 11 has been officially and emphatically denied by ' Col. Hodgetts,  the Canadian Red Cross Commissioner in England, and publicly contra-  .dieted by prominent Red Cross officials in Canada, but the .rumour has  a curious vitality an,d persists in  croppnig up in unexpected places  The Canadian Red Cross needs no  defence from .such petty misrepresentations, but it is undeniable-that a  suspicion that supplies are not given  away freely might damper the ardour  of many enthusiastic workers who  are inspired to generosity, by its  thought of the soldiers' pleasure  when he receives their.gifts. There  ,'s not much incentive to knitting if {  the soldier who ultimately wears  them, does so with a Grievance.  The Red Cross authorities however have never been able to find any  such soldier with an . authenticated  that they had heard that supplies  were sold, have neveT been able to  produce any proof. The reasonable  grievance. Persons who have stated  inference is that no such proof exests.  Any one making Red Cross'supplies can do so with the full assurance that the bounty of the Canadian public goes as a free gift to the  sick aud wounded soldiers All reports to the contrary are either- misunderstandings or falsehoods. ;  ���������   (The above letter    was    received  -i-  ijriom the Head Office' of the Red  Cross society at Toronto; and if any  of our" readers have any specific information in regard to the matters  mentioned above they should communicate with the head office at  Toronto.���������Ed.)
