FIRF PROTECTION.     ���  Similar lo other towns and cities,  it has always been aud always will  he up to the owners of dcstructable  properly in this town to provide  cither directly or indirectly their  own protection from lire. It is not  to be expected that the citi/en whose  only destrnctable asset is a log shack  valued at from one to four, hundred  dollars will put up as many dollars  for fire protection as his more fortu  liale- neighbor  a  hotel, warehouse; business stand or  stock  of merchandise; but it is expected that one and all should contribute pro rata ou   the   assessable  value   of   that which he owns of a  destrnctable nature.    Is il not possible for the fire  committee  of lhe  town   to  obtain  a list of the valuations as fixed by the assessor?   With  such a list in their possession a rale  could be struck so as to provide the  necessary funds  for  fire   protection  ancl  each properly owner should be  required to contribute according   to  the   value  of that for which he receives protection.    If   this   system  were adopted there should not be so  much   difficulty in   collecting   the  funds necessary for the proper maintenance and equipment of the town's  fire department.  No person. should expect to receive protection unless they arc willing lo pay'for- il ancl, as a well-  equipped ancl properly conducted  fire department is essential to the  welfare of this .thriving community,  citizens who are willing to pay for  their own share of said protection  should not be asked or expected to  provide protection for people who  are too mean to protect themselves  patriotic piido in  every British subject, but this association views with  regret  the prevalent and increasing-  custom of making it the  medium of  calling   attention   to  auction  sales  ancl otherwise using it for  advertising   purposes   demeaning the  flag  and taking from it the respect   with"  which   it ought'to be viewed.    Resolved, therefore, that the president  appointa committee to act with kindred associations or otherwise in endeavoring to secure a discontinuance  of the.practice of using the   British  or Canadian (lags for'such purposes."  If   you   sympathize with our object will you, through your  paper,  urge the discontinuance of this practice now thoughtlessly indulged in ?  If the press generally would   take  lhc mallei up we would soon   have  such   a   public sentiment of respect  for. the flag that il would 110 longer  be   put   lo the indignity of calling  attention to the sale of   some   poor  man's furniture or his cow.  .    .

The  senior mulch, which was called first,'  ���was the best exhibition of the game  'iii, lhc camp this winter. The de-.  .fence sections.of each team put up-  exceptionally good work and their  play \vasrahnosl perfect.' 'The forwards all played good games and  lhc fact thai Atlin's trio produced  tlhe best and most effective combin-  .iilion accounts for the game -rcsult-  ing in a win for the visitors by a  -score ol <G goals to 3.
