Mr. Orr haa placed before the
provincial legislature a bill to incorporate the Delta Railway Oompany.
The penona named as incorporators
are T. E. Ladner and Thos. Mo
"N«*ly,*o}"Ladneraj R. Lipsett, J.
Hey wood, T. *. Patterson, and G.
Riley, Victoria; Adam Innes, langley Prairie; D. McRae, J. 0. Henderson and S. Cawley, Chilliwhack;
it. \T. Miller and W. 0. Campbell,
Sumaa. The capital stock is to be
$1,000,000, in shares of $100 each.
. The objeot ol thia company is to
construct and operate a railway
from Ladners to Popcum, on the
south aide of the Fraser, a. distance
of about 80 miles. The route will
lie through one of the finest agricultural districts in the province, and
iw the country is comparatively level
die cost ot construction will be
email. Since the construction of
the C. P. R, on the north side of the
Fraser, those settlen on the south
of the river have felt themselves
plaoed at a disadvantage, especially
during the season when river steam
ers do aot run. Roads in this district are scarcely ever good in winter, and the means of communication
- are very uncertain. This railway:
would bring every settlement of any
importance on the south side of the
river into direct communication
with New Westmiaster, and through
it with all places where connection
would be desirable. It would like
win greatly aid in the development
of that tegion where the agricultural
advantages are very great and the
chief disadvantage is the lack of
roads, Q The company asks the government to exempt the road from
provincial and municipal taxation
for fire years after it has beeu completed—a request so modest that it
will hardly be refused. The increased value of property along the line
would produce more taxes than
would be loet through this exemption. We hope the bill will pass,
and that the road will be sucsessful-
ly floated. The head offices of the
company are to be at Westminster.
workshops and manufactories which
would give employment to hundreds
of men and increase vastly our pon-
ulation and trade. These are np
idle dreams,- thoy are nothing moijo
than what is very likely to take
place before many more summers
have been added to the historical
record.
A Railway Centre.
It is the opinion of the Portland
, Oregonian that one of the results of
the enforcement of the inter-state
bill lately adopted by the United
. States congress will be to divert
much through business from American transcontinental lines to the
' Canadian Pacifio Railway. This
opinion is expressed on the authority
of high nilway officials. In view
of thia, the prospective railway con.
unction between the O.P.R. and
' the Aaaerican railway systeni on the
sound becomes invested with new
importance. I The  sound   country
• can receive the full benefit of the 0.
P. R. service only by having connection by rail with the 0. P. R,
and the place where that
connection can be best effected
seems to be thia city. There is very
little doubt but the 0. P. R branch
fi to thia city will before long be ex-
. tended to Vancouver. It has been
found that the cost of operating the
branch is very much larger than had
been~ expected. -Whenever the
through train happens to be a little
i late, the special train on the branch
has to make two trips, and as the
number of passengers is comparatively small, the cost of the service
. haa heretofore been greater than the
revenue. But the service cannot be
abandoned for two reasons: Fint,
the company is bound by its agreement to operate the branch line forever, and, secondly, if the service
were to be abandoned the people of
thia city would tnnsfer most of
their business to the Northern Pacifio, It ia plain, therefore, that the
company's interest is to give up the
 operation of the Burrard Inlet extension, carry the New Westminster
branch down to English Bay, and
Se all its traffic over this road.
ire ia nothing at Port Moody to
pay for the running of one train a
week, and that part of the road
eould be closed without perceptible
loaa of business. But as a service to
Sew Westminster is necessary, and
must, be kept up, it is plain that if
this were'made the main line almost
thia  whole oost of operating the
• branch would be saved to the company without at all interfering with
• tlteafieienoy of theroad.. A bill is
now before the provincial legislator*, asking a charter to build a
.1      railway from Ladners to Popcum.

■* GRIP!i*«
CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
MEAT IMPROVEMENTS FOI 1887.
THE AIM OF "GRIP" Is to aet forth, in
In an Impartial and Independent manner, tbo Panama events of Canadian political and social life, lis Cartoon, speak
more definitely and more pleasingly than
whole columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artlstle style
of presenting a subject, the whole situation Is revealed »t a glance. The success
of Grip shows how well this faot Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on the passing political events of the country being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though tho latter ls equal to that ot any
simitar publication on tho continent.
The publishers of Grin are making ex
tensive Improvements lor lam The old
cover I. to be discarded, and the 'journal
will hereafter comprise 1. pages, and ba
printed on heavy toned and calendered
papcr.-every number being ao artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on the continent. The
advts. will be compressed and more syste-
matlcally arranged: while similar lm
provements wlllTbemade aa to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page! while thn Cartoons
will certainly not suffer from eatenslve
Improvements In the artlstlo department.
The price of OHj- will hereafter betta
year, which Is lower than lhat.ol any
paper of IU kind In Amerloa,-most of
them selling for H. Single numben of
Ortpwlllbelo cents. ._.
Twice a year.at Midsummer ond Christmas, a beautiful special number will be
Issued, the number of pages being Increased, and plowing fea&res Introduced,
particulars of which will be given Inpre-
ceding Issues. These numbers wlirbe
presented to subscribers without extra
eharge.

At a meeting of the Vancouver
oouncil the other night it waa slated
that the apecial policemen from Victoria would probably bo withdrawn in
a day or two, The council expressed
itself willing to provide additional oity
police if necessary to keep tho poaco.
Applications were made on Tuesday
by Mr. Drake, Q. C, and Mr. Corbould, on behalf of tho C. P. R. Co.,
for immediate possession of the
land for tho purpose of proceeding with the construction of the
Ooal Harbor branch, and an order was
made in fifteen cases upon that oompany depositing a sum in eaoh case in
the Bank of B. C. in accordance with
the aot. Mr. Pooley represented most
of the opposing parties.
Special Charter.—Coun. Higgins,
of Viotoria, at tho last meeting of the
city oounoil, moved that the city be
placed under n special charter instead
of under tho municipal aot.

ago a dead cow was found near Oapt.
Insley's fence, lying ou the street.
The police .instituted a searoh for the

Spikks v. 0. P. N. Co.—On Tuesday Justice McCreight disposed of this
case in Vancouver by allowing judgment for the defendant, with costs,
but gave the plaintiff tne right to appeal to the supremo oourt. The plaintiff brought i.uit for damages to gooda
•hipped from Victoria to Vancouver.
The question now railed is whether
the company, as common carriers, had
tho right to contract themselves out
of their liability for damages to goods
when they made an agreement to ahip

Tbe Bishop's Baton-
Many of our readen know tliat the
Choral Union, which has frequently
delighted the people of this city with
its musical entertainment!, was organized by tho lit. Rov. Bishop Sillitoe,
who was it. conductor. Before the
bishop left for England last full, the
lady members of the union gave Mrs.
Sillitoo a sum of money with which
they uked her to purchase a baton
and present it to the bishop on their
behalf. The commission hu been executed, and a few days ago Miu Woods,
of this oity, received from the bishop
the following letter, dated nt London,
Feb. lst:
Dear Miss Woods; Will you accept
my most hearty acknowledgment of the
kind tboughttulnels of the Choral Union
ladles. The baton is a most beautful
one, u I am sure you will all think. I
havo made many inquiries among musical people for the nest choral mnsic,
and 1 will bring out with m. a good collection for next season's work. Please
thank the members for me, and tell them
that I hope to be wielding tha baton before them by October next at the latest.
With many kindest regards, believe me
most sincerely vours,
A. W, New Westminster.
The baton is of ivory, with silver
mountings. At the top is the bishop's
mitre and coat of arms, and on the
side a plate is let in with the following
inscription: "Presented|to the Bishop
of New Weitminiter by the ladiea of
the Choral Union." Itwai a most appropriate gift, and we an lun all
members of the union will be glad to
know that it is highly appreciated by
the bishop.

Tbe Cattle or British Colnmbia
THE REPORTS OF THEIR LOSSES EXAGGERATED.
'A prominent cnttle-inan from the
intorior to-day informed us that the
reports that were circulated from time,
to time, concerning the lon of cattle
in the ranching country, were, greatly
exaggerated. As far as he was aware
the Ion throughout the whole country
had not exceeded lOper cent, and unlcn
Marchand the first portion of April
proved an unexceptionally severe
season, and he had|no reason to believe it would, the loss wu already at
an end. The heaviest losses liave occurred in the Nicola district, whero
somo of the ranchers will probably lose
about a quarter of thoir whole herd.
One rancher in particular in this district, named Morris, exhausted hia
stock of folder and accordingly lost
almost the hall of liis herd. Thii mnn
would probably be one of the heaviest
losen in the province. The Douglas
Cattle Co., of this district, who have at
presont 15,000 cattlo and are the most
extensive herders in the province, have
lost 1600, being 10 per cent of their
stock. The reason of theae losses is
not the intense cold as hu been reported, bnt the fact that during lut
summer a groat drought prevailed and
the gran lif ing burnt up the ranchers
wen obliged to feed thoir cattle during tho whole winter season, whenai
in former yean thoy were uccuatomod
to let them rnn on the range*. Naturally the cattle-men were unprepared
for thii change and were not nble tu
obtain hay for their stook. In the
Similkameen district very te*, if any,
cattle have perished. The cattle-men
hen aro generally farmen u well, and
have been obliged tu food their cattle
every year.   In the
OKANAOAN   DISTRICT
the losses would not exceed 8 per
cent. Tho Chilcotin district would
suffer very heavily but not u much ao
u Nicola. Tho weather here has been
the coldest known in seven yean
when about one-third of the whole
numberot cattle perished. Estimating the number of cattle in this region
at 20,000, not moro than 3000 have
polished. T. A. Harper, who herds
about (1000 in thii district liu lost 000
or about 10 per cent In Nieola and
Chilcotin the greatest numben have
perished. The snow hai now left tho
ground in theso districts and the
ranchers aro able to turn their atock
out onco more. It is thought that the
unusual amount of snow tliat hu fallen
during tho winter will ba the meatii of
developing a good growth of gran during the summer.
IN THE THOUriON RIVER RUSH
the lon would not exceed 6 per cent.
The prinoipal ranchers here are John
Wilson, R. W. J. Roper, Victor Gills*
ume, L. Campbell, and Ducks. Each
of then men probably herds from
3,000 to 4,000 cattle, but nune of
them suffered any loss to speak of,
each of them having been well prepared for the winter with hay. Only
the leu eitensive nnchcrs will suffer.
A few honei periihed in this region,
on the high table lands. No bonei
died in Nicole or Chilcotin. Summing
up, he nid thia hail been u very
severe winter for the ranchers,
especially for thoso who carry ihe
business on on a •mall wile. Many
of the Indian! in the hills had had
their bands ol horses frown to death.
He did net anticipate any further danger of cold or famine, and the chances
wen that the coming summer wobld
be so favorable for stockmen •• to
men thin npay theai for Iheir winter
