A number of communications were  received and dealt with by the Matsqui  municipal  council at the  regul-  ' ar meeting of that body held here on  Monday.  James Owens, of Bradner, replied  to a letter from the council, denying  that he had a bull-roaming the.roads.  Mr. Owens also {jecfhiplained of the  condition of a bridge near Bradner,  and further told the council that he  'Objected*to them or-anyone els:i using his fence to repair the bridge  with. The reeve was able to assure  the council that the bridge was being repaired and that Mr. Owens'  folic.'', a as not bein , used for Li"! purpose  John OJund had tho contract f"r!  painting the Agricultural Hail at]  Gifford, wrote, stating that the contract had been completed with the  cleaning of the windows. Mr. 01-  und's account was accepted and ordered paid.  A letter from the B. C. Returned  Soldiers' Commission notified the  council that men. who saw service in  Canada only, and men who only got  as far as England, were entitled to  gratuity, according to the length of  their service. The letter pouted out  that many men who were dicharged  prior to November 11th, 1918, were  unaware of this, and asked the council to bring it to the attention of such  men, Eeach councillor undertook to  make the letter public to the besc  of his ability, and the clerk was in-  '" structcd to post notices in the several post offices in the municipality.  A bill for $24 was received from  A. J. "White for putting gravel on tho  road in front of the store at Gifford.  As no one present knew anything of  the work, the clerk was instructed tn  ��������� reply, asking Mr. White who ordered the work.  S. Leslie Brice wrote, asking the  council if he could remove a number  of pieces of planks lying along the  Mt. Lehman road. As the council  have a use for these planks, the request was refused.  ' A letter from S. -F. Harvey stated  ���������that on August 2nd his horse fell  through the bridge near McDoug-  all's gate on the Harris oad, breaking the shafts of his democrat, and  he asked damages to the extent of  $8 the cost of fixing the vehicle. The  council will investigate and if the  fact s are as stated by Mr. Harvey  the account will be paid.  The council unanimously endorsed  a resolution received from the New  Westminster school board asking for  the establishment of a technical  school in that city.  A letter from the provincial minister of finance asking a large number of questions pertaining to linan-  ce������ of'lhe municipality, was lei'r. in  the hands of the* clerk for reply.  Coun. Aish handed the clerk applications signed by almost a score  of ratepayers asking the Western  Power Company to supply them with  electric energy,    according    to    the  company's contract with the municipality.   "���������    '���������*  The council instructed the clerk to  forward thee applications to Killam  and Beck, solicitors for the municipality, with instructions to take  whatever acthion may be necessary  to compel the company to comply  with these applictions.  ,  The. council agreed. to . the transfer of the contract for work'on the  LeFeuvre road from Robert Duncan  to C. Gephart and A. Welsh, and extend the time for completing the con  tract to October 31st,  19IS9.  An invitation to attend the banquet to be given the returned soldiers at Bradner on Friday Sept. 12  was received. As many as possib:������  of the councillors will be in attend-  j ance.  I Notice of the meeing of the Good  i'Roads League which is to be held in  New Westminster on the same date  was also received. As this meeting  is to be held in the afternoon, the  two events.will not conflict, and representatives of tho council will be  present at both events.  Councillors Aish and Melander  were appointed delegates to represent this municipality at the convect-  'ions of the Good Roads League and  the Union of B. C. Municipalities,  wheih are to be held in North Vancouver from October 6th to 9th.  A resolution was adopted thanking  all citizens who took part in the hunt  for the man Talbot who was arrested at Bradner last week, charged  with a serious criminal offence.  The clerk was instructed to call  for tenders for a complete new assessment of the municipality.  The clerk was also instructed to  write to Mrs. Barrett notifying her  that if she does not remove a fence  from the road, as she was previously  ordered, the council would have the  fence removed at her expanse.  The matter of paying polico costs  in the case of men who are to all intents transients in the municipality  and from whom the muniicality has  received no revenue, was discussed.  It was thought advisable to bring the  marter'boffire the coming convention  of the Union1 of B. C. Municipality  and the delegates were instructed accordingly  The usual monthly accouuts w-are  certified and ordered paid, and council adjourned to meet again on Monday Sept. 22 at 1:30 p. m. at Gifford.  A meeting of thd Good Roac4a  League was held on Friday last but  the attendance was not what it ought  to be. The roads in this district are  not at all satisfactory to all the people outside of autoists and all the  meetings should be well atended.

The  present  way  dues not reinuneraUi' any soldier who  does not. wish  to  take up  land,  and  ,as lias been shown by tho Settlement  board   decisions  not all  soldiers aiv.  fitted for this noble calling, although  men   competent   to   play   their   part  equally. well   in  other   walks  of  life  in Canada.  It is a recognised fact, although,no  deJinito action has been' taken yrft  that the soldier is-entitled to some  tiling moro than the $1.10 por day  for_lhe almost endless days that he  spent in France, no matter, the part  played. That he should have something moro than'a glad welcome home  is the belief of the common people  of Canada. We have not yet heard  a man or woman say' a word to .the  contrary, and during the war we oit-  cn. heard people say that they weiv  willing to pay extra so that the boys  ���������would all have,a little stake to start  with in life, after an absence of years  or months as it, may be. Opinion  has not changed much since then except perhaps as to the amount thai  woula be fair to all and the method  of paying off ;the debt.  The scheme of placing the spldici  on the land is of course a most commendable scheme and there are no  objections to the loans which the  soldiers are getting, except the fact  that the process is slow and many oi  the soldiers get most tediously Urea  of waiting, as time costs money these  days and five, six seven and ten  weeks or more of waiting to have  matters settled-up is not what the  ' soldier has been taught,to get results,  on the battle field. Quick action is  the,one thing that counts with the  soldier, because it has been drilleu  into him on the fields- of France.  It is not the purpose of this editorial* to .solve the problem of how much  or how little or in what manner the  debt should be paid by the Canadian  people, but we believe wo are expressing public opinion when we a a;,  that every soldier who occupied anj  position in Franco or served his.  country elsewhere or in any othei  way, hould be given a cash pay mem,  by the government of Canada. No  matter how iarge it is it cannot b'.  too much, it was a time-of danger  aud the soldier who risked life for  the  Canadian  men  and   women,  and  children deserves just as large an a- .   mount as it is possible to give him. j Not the least amongst the many  Wo do not have the opinion of the i gracious acts performed by the  editor of the Globe of "the inability {prince of Wales during his brief stay  v-vri  ir  is  *g*r:?rriBwwpm?niE.'giryiy.'-T#tT wtvTwirv*���������^������mrULja  sider less intelligent races than tho  Canadian people., ,lt was considered  the.rights of the soldier., ,' Human  rights have not changed.

Why that is but a very  paltry amount if the soldier is satis-  lied with it as paying the debt in lull.  At mos'c it is but six or seven hundred  miiiiou.

Thousands of dollars are being  ape nt each week, as the grounds ex-  pana and the buildings take on holiday hue. For nearly four years, sol-'  .diers, hundreds and thousands, of  them in the aggregate, made the exhibition buildings their hadquarters  for months at. a time. They' left early  in 1919 but signs of their occupancy  remained on every hand.  It was a gigantic task which the  directors and management undertook (,  when a fair was agreed upon, but  nobly have they responded. Moreover they faced the urge of-quickening interest in the Royal City show  for it is,, no easy ��������� task to resurrect  an establishment as elaborate as the  Provincial Exhibition and also ensure  that the exhibitor shall be reawakened to the many advantages which  come to him by displaying the work  of his hands and brain.

An unusual honor is being accorded the city  and district in this regard for not  another .fair, in Canada is so honored.  A "Prince of Peace"  The Prince will come up the Fraser by steamer from Victoria and  will pass through a veritable maze  of decorated streets, triumphal arches and through long straight lines or  veterans when he reaches the gatey  of the Park. Prince Edward will  officially declare the exhibition open  at. 12 o'clock but he will reach the  city shortly after 10 and will not  leave until early afternoon. He goes  to Penticton from here via the C. N.  R.  o'clock.  It is probable that the trustees of  other districts will also declare the  day a holiday, and boys and girls  from all parts of the Valley will have  the privilege of attending tho New  Westminster fair on opening day.  .MATSQUI  TAXES  At the regular meeting of the  municipal council' held on Monday  last.a resolution was adopted empowering the collector to be at the  following place on the dates mentioned for the purpose of receiving  payments on taxes: Pine Groev P.O.

Representing P.oard Companies Only  WAXT A HI (J 11  SUMAS COUNCIL  With the big dyking scheme almost a certainty, the people who own  land in Sumas municipality are taking no chances, with the result that  Sumas is likely to establish a" recoru  for the province of British Columbia  this month, when, according to the  new amendments to the Municipal  Act. all lands delinquent in taxes  must be offered fo sale. Though no  tax sale has been held here for fiitoen  vears past, only three parcels of land  will be offered at this sale. Two ot  these parcels are lots of less than an  ' acre each, which are being allowed  to go to the sale by the owners, as  the simplest way of securing ck-ar  titles and the owners in both cases  intend buying the property in at Lho  sale. This means that there will  onlv-be one sale that bei'u;  160* acres known as the Scott'place,  consisting of land, rock gold aud also  mine tunnels. As far as is known tho  proportion of gold is small, but there  has been some found and some ^an b;  seen, while the tunnelling proves a  considerable quantity of the precious  metal has been sunk in this quarter  'section.  u     There is $500 against the property  Coun. Delair brought up the qucst-  Mon of fixing the road past Mrs.  Cough's place and stated that as this  road served the people < f Matsqui  more than it did the people of Sumas  he would suggest that, the MaUqui  council bo asked to co-operate in fix-  ng tho road. Coun. DeLair was delegated to interview the Matsqui coun  oil on the matter and this council  voted $75 as the Sumas share in the  fixing of the road. The vote was con  ditional on the co-operation of Matsqui.  The clerk was instructed to forward a cheque to the Good Roads  Leagu, being the municipality's mem-  'b'in-.Iiip k'c- in the league- for ihe current year.  Some time ago Reeve Fooko  bought a Martin ditcher and told the  council that if it proved satisfactory  on trial he would give them the option   of   buying   it.  from   him   at  ex-  'actly cost price of $107.50; if it did  not give satisfaction to warrant the  council in buying it. he would kcap  it himself. .The ditcher has beon  tried and has given such satisfaction  .that the council purchased it from  'the reeve at Saturday's meeting.  The council appropriated $210 for  gravel for the Marrah road for the  purpose of connecting up with the  Lam son road so as to allow the people living in that district to have the  mail delivered at their homes.  John Farmer wrote calling atten-  tiun to the condition of part of the  Farmet road and asked to have it  repaired. '$r>0 was appropriated.  The regular monthly accounts were  ordered  paid.  NO  PLAXKING  KOK MISSION  IUUDCE  IS TIIR DECISION  A communication from the Board  of Hail way Commissioncsrs for the  Do.uinon to the Matsqui Municipal  Council regarding the- proposal to  plank Mission bridge was received at  the regular meeting of the council  held on Monday last.  The letter stated that the board  had no power to order any railway  company to open a bridge to vehicular bridge being constructed or an old  ar traffic except in the case of a new  bridge being to a great extent rebuilt.  V leter from the provincial department of public works enclosed a letter from the C. P. XL in which jhe  railway company said that such a  -procedure was contrary to all rules  -of-the company and that the company could not consider the proposition  at all.  The matter is now officially closed  and the hope of having, the use of  the bridge must be abandoned, biK  the Matsqui council deserve great  c.-edit for their persistent efforts in  cideavoring to have this great public convenience opened to the public.  roil  r> u  the  (I-Yoii) Fraser  Valley  Kfcurcl)  The crowded condition of the public school would indicate  that at. an  early date another  room   will  be  quired for    the    pupils���������making  seventh room.

It  has been suggested that the1present  building be used wholly for domestic  ���������science and the government building  close by be used for manual training.

Mr. lllingworth the local  manual training teacher is very enthusiastic in regard to the matter and  the'matter now rests with the directors  of'the .Matsqui   fair.  An exhibit of this kind at which  ��������� the boys were seen at work woukh  be a good illustration to the parents  of Matsqui and the trustee board of  thrt value it would be if introduced  into the Matsqui schools.  From Fraser Valley Hew-.!)  There is a difference even a .distinction between the methods of the  provincial government and the Mis-  sicn council. We leave it to our  readers which is the more progressive in these days of reconstruction. ���������  When the Liberal government  came into power there was an excellent equipment of road building machinery for the De-wdney riding, but  if this paper is informed correctly,  and it is thought it is, tne provincial government has allowed this machinery to be sold, partly, and the  balance allowed to become useless,  and at the present time, out cf the  '$���������10,000 worth.of first class road machinery there is probably not one-  flttli of that in working condition so  that it can be used to advantage.  The roads in the riding show it too.  While on the other hand the Mission council is aiming at having "a  thoroughly equipped plant for road  building in the municipality. Two  graders were purchased earlier in the  year, and this week a large -15.000  pound rock cruchsr was moved up  to Mt. Mary Ann, from where the  rock will be taken, put through the  rock crusher and then used for roan  building. The rock crusher cost  T-t)0, and now the council are undecided what they will do, buy an  electric motor, have the power extended to the Mt. Mary Ann by the electric ' conipny. or buy a truck. But  one or the other vrill be purchased.  Some are inclined to think that the  truck would be the better as the rod:  crusher would b hauled to Silver-  dale where' there is good rock, and it  could also be used for hauling the  rock to the road, or even pulling a  road roller,  when  one is  purchased.  The prospects are that Mission is  to have good roads throughout tho  municipality in the near future; but  while the council has ideas for re-  ! construction with machinery, what a-  bout the government that has let the  , excellent equipment pass out of their  hands?  SUGAR   ENOUGH   1-OH  ALL  Thi.s was the remark of one of the  F.-.htern refiners at the investigation  lvJd  by Judge  Robson   in .Montreal  t ho other day.
