THE DYKIiNG SCHEME  Tlie Sumas dyking commissioners recently interviewed the  provincial government with a  view of having the government  guarantee the bonds and take  security on the lake lands and  district,, the commissioners be-  lieveing that the lands of the  lake bottom .can be sold for enough to pay for the scheme���������  possibly the whole liability. In,  words similar to this Mr. J. L.  Atkinson, one of the commissioners spoke to the Post this  week. .: .    ���������',  Mr. Cresswell, who has been  to Ottawa recently, has just returned. He was trying. to arrange a more favorable 'condit-,  ion with the Dominion government about the lands. Whether has been successful or not is  not yet known.  Should arrangements along  these lines, ;be made it is:consid  ered.that money would be a-  vailable this fall for the cary-  ing but of the work, as it would  be a better financial proposition  to place upon the market.  .It is   thought   that   Messrs  Grant Smith <������ Co!, would then  , join Rice,and carry through the  work. ,  The idea is to dyke the .Ved-  der- and the Fraser .the, first  year, and the draining of the  lake to be undertaken the next  year. It.is claimed by the commissioner that the ake would be  able to take care of the surface  waters for the first year arid as  the Fraser lowered, the lake  would ^ drain off, when the  scheme could be further prosecuted and "the bed of the lake  made so that it would for all  time to come be workable land.  It is just possible that as soon  as this work was completed the  provincial government, would  undertake to build roads  .  The idea of the draining of  the lake lands is now considered a feasible one. by both-governments.  PRISONERS OF WAR  DEPARTMENT  Canadian Red Cross Society  Vancouver Branch  ' The   claims    of.this department of the Red Cross have only recently been brought to our  notice, ,but so urgent are they  that  the call for help' should  receive   widespread   response.  Parcels of. food and other comforts are being sent out -from  the Canadian Red Cross headquarters in London by Mrs. Rivers Bulkley, who is in charge  of the prisoners of war Department...  Ageiits of the American  Embassy in Berlin are visiting  the prison camps and    report  that undoubtedly the prisoners  are regularly receiving the parcels sent.    Dr. Dolbey, who was  a prisoner of war for over six  months and who was recently  exchanged, states that "it is imperative that we send as much  food as possible to the men in  the camps," and that "conditions are far worse than we have  any idea of." Sergeant Wells, in  an uhcensored letter smuggled  out by an^exchanged army"medical friend, says: "If it were riot  for the parcels of food we receive from kind friends in England we would starve" and he  attributes his regained health  after the amputation of his arm  to the food thus sent.  ,  May we appeal to you on behalf of the men who have no  friends to supply   their . needs  and'who having fought so bravely are now condemned to the  weary montony and privations  of a German prison camp?  A weekly parcel of food can  be sent at the cost of $4 or $5  per month, or a fortnightly one  for half that amount.  Would you consider adopting  a prisoner, i. e., providing one  of these sums so that a parcel  can be sent to him regularly?  Prisoners' circles are being formed, ten people combining and  giving each ten cents a week  and thus collectively "adopting" a pisoner.  Mr. J.

A petition had been sent to  the trustees signed by 26 ratepayers and'others interested in  the schools to the number of over forty, but" some people' did  not think quick enough action  was being taken in the matter.  OUR OPINION  The opinion of the Post may  not be worth much" but the editor has taken the trouble to  get both sides of the story, and  would say friends and neighbors make a compromise for the  sake of the boys and girls who  attend your school.  Swings at a school are in a  great many cases considered a  good amusement at schools and;  there is no reason . why   there  should not be a swing or two at  the Abbotsford. school���������one for  the 'larger pupils and one for  the smaller ones and.built accordingly and at separate places in the yard arranged so that  there would be as.little danger  about" the use of them" as it is  possible.    It has been done in  other country schools and why  not in -Abbotsford?  It is always nice to get even  but this is a matter where the  public example of the parents  has its influence on the education of the children; and to an  outsider it might appear thar,  there is fault, possibly on both  sides. No use going into details.  Arrange it so that the children can enjoy a swing at the  school if they wish, they only  enjoy childhood once.  THEY WANT THE GUN ;  MONEY, AFTER ALL'  Mr. Wm. Taylor secretary of  the Machine Gun Fund has the  following wire from ther Acting  Minister of Militia, Hon." J. A.  Lougheed, stating that "Government, will gratefully accept  additional contribution . from  your district for purchase of ma  chine Gun. Patriotic generosity deeply appreciated*"-  The notice appearing in the  Vancouver papers sometime al  go put.a damper on the ardor  of the people who were subscribing gun fund money but this  wire appears to make such information unfounded. It is up  to the Vancouver papers, to explain.

" .   -       -        Editor and Proprietor      _  No man knows the trials and worries of being a reeve or a  councillor of any one of the municipalities of the Fraser Valley  or perhaps any'of the other municipalities of the province until  he is elected by the people to hold that honorable position. We  have for a number of years had the pleasure of reporting the  various council meetings, sometimes in Mission, sometimes in  Malsqui, sometimes iir.Sumas, and sometimes in Maple Ridge,  and in each one of these it is the same old story of being willing  to grant the requests of all for roads, the requests of all for assistance, but always with that skeleton in the safe;���������have we the  necessary money to do it; are the taxes coming in good; how do  we stand.with the bank; etc. etc.,It takes money to run a municipality, audit must be done on the money that-comes in during  the year. No council has much coming to it from the previous  year when it takes office, and it cannot very well exceed the  revenue for the year, except it be for a few dollars; but the roads  must be built arid kept in repair; the bridges must be kept in  repair; and a thousand and one other little things must be paid  for. It keeps the men who are elected to office scratching their  ���������head to do what they believe they ought to do when the requests 1  are made ������ , I  No municipality in a rural district wishes to borrow money on  the credit of the municipality thus creating a bonded indebtedness. If this could be done as easiy by a municipality as by a  provincial government, all might be as well as a marriage bell,but,  before such can be done a bylaw must be submitted to the people,  and time and time again the people have expressed their wish  thatvthey do not want any bonded indebtedness, and that settles  the matter in that respect, and the council must run its affairs on  the revenue for the year.  e revenue for the year. , - Lyy^  ������. ��������� ��������� ���������. .

RIDGE POLICE COURT  HAS TWO GOOD SESSIONS  In the police court at Haney  on Tuesday of last week, a very  weary Willie who wanders from  Port Moody to Mission was given three months surcease from  his ramblings. Three days before, Constabe Pope had haied  him before Police Magistrate  Laity, who gave him a good lecture, and a half hour in which  to cross the Western limits of  the municipality, but the sweet  remembrance of good pies and  cakes handed out by the housewives of Maple Ridge, proved  too much, and he came back for  more, - and was again collared  by the man in blue. His next  visit to Maple Ridge will be at  least three months hence.

The sick must be cared for, and  while the members of the council may demur yet eventually the  bill is.paid* The hospital is a grand institution and it might not  * be long;before one of the settlers of Mission, who was not.able  to. pay, would be removed to the hospital. For this person the  municipality, as per the regular custom, pays for, and takes the  chance of the party paying the council again. The council wishes to keep in good standing with the hospital at all times.  A case similar to the above happened in Maple Ridge recently.  A transient came along and after remaining a short time he became sick; was removed to the hospital the council agreeing to  pay. for one month. He died and the bill was sent to the municipality to pay. A resolution was passed for the payment of the  bill. ��������� But the question arises why should Maple Ridge pay that  bill? It is a delicate matter to deal-with. We believe it is up  to the provincial government to recompense the municipality in  his case and similar cases in the various municipalities. The  government cares for the occupants of the Mental Hospital, why  not the temporary sick, who are without means?  A similar question came up some months ago when the fran-  quille Sanitarium made, its appeal to the various municipalities  of the province. The council boards in most cases expressed regret that they were unable to assist a deserving institution but it  was not within their means to do so. In many cases it was agreed  that the municipality would donate towards patients from their  own municipaliy.  The provincial government might very well take this matter  up with the various municipaities so that recompense might be  made for all such cases. In the absence of government aid a  "number of municipalities are now levying one mill on the ratepayers under the heading.of health, thus making provision for  hospital cases.'

The attendance at the public schools of the Fraser Valley is on  the increase. There are more pupils in attendance at the  schools than there was this time last year, and the tendency appears to be towards the higher education afforded in our high  and superior schools. Mission City opened its high school this  term with 44 pupils on the roll; Matsqui has a good large attendance; Abbotsford has more pupils than last year; Mt. Lehman  is taking up high school work for the first time; Maple Ridge has  two schools taking up high school work, one at Haney and the  other at the old Maple Ridge school. These are a few instances  of the increased attendance in these schools, others could be  mentioned. It might be pointed out that when Mission City  the first place in the Fraser Valley outside of the coast cities and  Chilliwack started to take up high school work, there was some  doubt as to the success of such an undertaking, and pupils were  solicited to attend from outside points in order to make up the  number, but now there are probably a dozen schools in the Fraser Valley that can boast of giving the pupils of the district a little better than the public school work. This is our boast and  pur pride, and makes the various points all the more attractive  for new settlers upon the land, now that the movement has so  increased during the past year. And while the cost of education  in the various municipaities may be much higher, there is no  question but it will eventually attract, a much better class of  settler for the future. Education is not everything, but it tends  towards the future success of the country.
