The contract for Carnegie lib-  rary has been let and construction  work will be commenced inimedi-  •tely. H. Hoy is the .successful  tender.  Several more or less serious run  •ways have occured in this city during the past week, in one of which  two horses were badly injured..  This was in & collision between a  team belonging to the Royal City  Transfer sand a fanners rig.  Pick-pockets worked successfully  in the city on Thursday, Mrs. J as.  Kelly of Langley was among the  victims and lost $60 while several  others reported having lost smaller  sums.  The eleventh annual fishermen's  •ports were successfully held on  Thursday and Friday and were attended by .a large number of Indians  and white fishermen.  A severe electrical, wind, and  rain storm passed over the city on  Wednesday night. Two large traes  were set on fire on the south side of  the river by a bolt of lightening and  are still burning.  The congregation of West Presbyterian church tendered a heaaty reception to their pastor Rev. P.. M.  King on Wednesday evening. The  occasion being bis return from  Manitoba with his bride. He was  presented with a handsomely illuminated address and a well filled purse.  French Timewell a white man  who c:;relessly set fire to some brush  tear Vancouver was fined $50 and  costB by Capt. Pettendrigh, S.'M.  A large number of people from  here intend taking in the A. 0. U.  W. excursion to Ladner on Monday -  The Salmon Pack.  Whether the total salmon pack of  the Fraser river is over or under a  quarter million cases, will make a  difference of $40,000 in the amount  to be paid by the canners to the  fishermen. To determine the exact pack, an official count is to be  made of the cases put up by all the  canneries on the river.  This big stake, for such it now is  both to fishermen and canners, is  occassioned by the fact that the  number of cases delivered at tlie  Fraser canneries up to midnight ot  Monday of this week is close up to  the quarter million mark. Below  that r8 cents rules by the sliding  scale to the pockets of the fishermen.  Above that mark, .16*4 cents is thf-  price to be Jpaid. With soekeyes  averaging as they do this year about  11 or nvJ fish to the case, it is  easily seen that the difference is a  big one.  At the longer rate, 250,000 cases  would cost for fish alone upwards of  $5i7,,50owhile thelower rate brings  that sum down to $475,000.  Secretary Burdis.of the Canners'  Association will watch the counting  for the canners while Charles Dur  ham, secretary of the Grand Lodge  of Fishermen has been appointed to  act for the men. The work will be  both long and tedious as it is possible that each of the canneries .will  be visaed and its pack tallied ^release by case.  Delta Council.

At the annual meeting of the  shareholders ot the Western Steamboat Co., Ltd.,  held in New  West  minster last week, a splendid report! born in San Jose,   Cab, and came  was presented. The year had been  very successful. Mr. Hart read the  directors' report showing that the  new boilers and machinery had been  put in the steamer Ramona at a cost  of $2,319,02. The vessel had bee".  docked and thoroughly overhauled  and repainted at a cost of $1,463.01,  and that other improvements had  been made at considerable cost with  a view to making her a more desirable freight and passenger vessel.  After all these expenditures h id  been met and all liabilities provided for, there remained r net profit  of about $1,400, and-as the affairs  of the company were in a thoroughly satisfactory condition the directors had no hesitation in recommending that a dividend of-10 per cent,  be paid on tlie capital stock of the  company.

Tnii Di-;i/i'A Nkws, Sir: Upon  ga/ing skyward on Sunday morning last the people along the shores  of the peaceful Fraser, who have  fields of beautiful grain lying in  shock, were trying as usual to get a  glimpse ofthe bright light in the  east, but alas! darkness enveloped  tbe heavens, and many predictions  and prophecies as to which it would  be, a one, two, or three days downpour. But as "coming events cast  their shadows before" one who had  seen our worthy executive unusually so full of business at the weeks  ending, aud his intentions if  known, no one need have been  alarmed, for the darkness on Sab-  both morning was simply the smoke  soaring skyward from the threshing-  engine of the aforesaid gentleman.  A week ago, as will be remembered a large excursion arrived in our  town from the city of Nanaimo and  many were the comments, "nothing  to see, nothing to do," why did they  not pospone this event for a week  and our worthy Reeve would have  gratified their curiosity by courteously escorting them around and  showing them a rrodern threshing  machine in full operation on Sunday. Engine, whistle and church  bells, make a most beautiful harmony of chimes.  A SlUJNT OttSERVUK.  Stock Company.  A scheme is on foot to organize a  stock company to build a suitable  hall and lodge room for the benefit  of Ladner. We understand there  is every probability ofthe proposed  company materializing. The eapti-  al stock will be $6,000 at $10 a  share. The building will be two  story, the upstairs being fitted up in  first class shape for all lodge purposes, the ground floor to be used  for meetings, dances, or theatricals.  In the course of another week full  particulars will be available about  the company.  Threshing- Accident.  Chas. Kettles had a very bad accident happen to him at his farm  last Tuesday morning. While feeding the thresher he was reaching  for the sheaf when the helper making an attempt to cut the band ac-  cidently put the knife into Kettle,  severing an artery in the forearm.  An old soldier who was at the farm  applied a military bandage which  stopped the flow of blood until Mr.  Kettle was able to get his buggy in  readiness and driven to town by Mr.  Montgomery foreman at the Pem-  beitou farm.  Andrew Clausen made a business  trip to the cities this week.  Mrs. V. II. I/uluer returned  Monday after a few days visit to  Vancouver.  Mrs. W. H. Taylor and child returned Friday from a visit with  friends at Chilliwack.  Mrs. Lanning and children left  last Saturday morning for Victoria  where they will remain for several  weeks.  Mrs. Charles Burrows of Nanaimo  a daughter or Mr, and Mrs. T. W.  Kerr, spent several days in Ladner  visiting with her parents. She returned Wednesday and was accompanied Ly het vintager sister who  goes to Nanaimo to attend the high  school.  A Large Crowd Expected  on the A. Q. U. W.  Excursion.  Monday being Labor Day a general holiday will be observed  throughout Canada and will be fittingly celebrated from one end of  the continent to the other. In Ladner there will be a grand celebration.  The Westminster and Vancouver  lodge of the A. O. U. W. have  made arrangements for an excursion  and basket picnic, a steamer leaving each place on that morning,  with Workmen and their friends, for  Ladner. The local lodge have made  arrangements to meet the visiting  brothers on their arrival, rigs wilj  be in attendance and the visitors  conveyed to the agricultural grounds  when the days festivities will be indulged in.  Athletic sports, races etc., are on  the program, and prizes have been  donated by the visitors besides, the  Ladner merchants have come to the  fore with appropriate prizes for the  successful contestants in the various  events. %  In all probability a band will accompany the visitors and besides^  the Ladner Cornet Band will be on  hand and with these two first class  bands in attendance there should be  no dearth of music.  Everyone is cordially invited to  go to the grounds on Labor Day  and take part in .the festivities and  sports. Bring along your basket  and muck-a-muck and make yourselves happy.  All Workmen are requested to be  on baud that day.  No Entertainment.  Miss Pauline Johnson and J.  Walter McRaye, arrived in Ladner  last evening and were billed to give  an entertainment in the town hall,  Ladner people are not in the habit  of getting around early to entertainments and at 8.30 only about thirty  were in attendance. Mr- JtfcRayf  announced from the stage that they  had decided not to play as it was  their hour of starting and the crowd  was not large enough to justify  them going on with the program,  The money was refunded, Along  during the next half hour quite a  (sw arrived to find the hall in darkr  ness and were dissapointed.  There is a lesson in this experience for both sides. At this time  ofthe season when all are busy with  harvest it is almost impossible to  get around on time, and spine Jlatjr  tude should be allowed bay the pert  formers, as 8.30 o'clock is not a late  liour, the local performances very  seldom starting at even nine o'clock,  The people of this section have  wandered into the bad habit of turn*  ing out late, and anything held  under the auspices of local organizations start at such a late hour  that professionals will not tolerate,  aud the next time good entertainers,  happen to come to Ladner, thf  people may remember this occasion  and get on hand earlier.  Dr. Wilson's bay mare attached  to a cart, while standing in front of  IL J, Hutcherson's store Thursday  afternoon, started up the Trunk  road but was captured after going  a short distance by T. E. Ladner,  Xo damage was done,  —  - THE DELTA N£Wg, SATURlkY, AUGUST 30, 19s  THE   DELTA   NEWS  BY  R1C.   A.   FRASER.  iv i! ' . a. --'■ ••- ■■■.  Subscription Price, per year In advance, $i.od  SATURDAY,    AUGUST  30,   1902.  Perhaps the attraction that contributes more than any other to  make an exhibition a financial success is the race meet, which should  be fixed for the same date as the exhibition, and is held under the auspices of the Agricultural Association. Many people attend the exhibition for no other puipose than  to see the races, while their oppos-  ites find  all their  interests centred  81  within the buildings.    As a matter  pf fact the exhibition must cater to  all classes, and to be successful must  f       ,;sr       a      .-i  make an effort to furnish, as far as  possible, each class with that which  . it finds most attractive.  There can be no very great objection to a horse   race as a horse  race.   The effect in a community  7 • ., f .: in  should be the encouragement of a  better breed of horses, but associated  with the sport is the betting feature,  to which some take exception. It  is said that horse racing without  betting is like meat without salt,  but there is a limit to which betting  should be permitted, and the directors should certainly do nothing that  pan in any way be construed as encouraging excessive betting or the  spirit of gambling.  s* ■  . Funds should be appropriated or  raised and a good card arranged which Would have the effect  or inducing many owners to' run  their horses on the Delta track  Without some attraction besides tbe  exhibits jt will be impossible to get  good gate receipts, and with horse  races a large crowd would remain  the second day, and the receipts  would be sufficient to pay the prizes  and expenses in connection with  the whole exhibition. Let the  matter be taken up at once and endeavor to make some attraction for  visitors to the Delta fair.  A few days ago a gentleman was  showing a visitor from the country  some of the sights, of Ottawa'," and  among other places, pointed out the  Houses of Parliament.  "Well, now," she exclaimed,  "what a fine building! "It ain't  the gasworks, is it?"  "It is, madam," he replied, "of  the whole Canadian people."  Says the Kootenay Mail: There  was a dramatic scene at the small  debts court on Tuesday. Matters  did not go exactly as a lady in the  case wished, she pulled off her  wedding ring, threw it on the table  before the magistrate, and declared  that euded all betwee her and her  husband.  A giddy young couple, Hypolite  Boutin, aged 71 years, and Miss  Adeline Descharuais, aged 76 years  were married at Athabaskaville,  Que., last Wednesday. Their  friends tri<id to dissuade, them from  taking the step but they threatened  to elope. '  Fall Fairs,  The following dates of Fall Fairs  have been announced:  Langley—Sept.  17.

Dancing and Card Play-  ing Will Be Again  Discussed.  That much discussed footnote to  the rules ofthe Methodist church  will come up next week as a partic-  .ttlar feature at the General Conference of the Methodist church at  Winnipeg. The question of whether dancing, card-playing, gambling,  •nd attendance at circuses and  theatres, with other kindred amusements, shall be absolutely prohibited  *s the order rule now provides, or  whether these shall only be the subjects of general admonitory advice,  Will again be threshed out.  At the last quadrennial Conference this matter came up, but the  sOrcslled progressive party were unable to impress the executive of the  church that the time had arrived to  remove the absolute rules against  these boulders of offence, and so no  change was made. Any action  yhich may now be taken will not,  however, affect the attitude of the  Methodist ministry upon practical  habits; but it may relieve many of  the adherents of this church from  the anomalous position they at present occupy, The proposed change  Would leave to be divided by individual conscience what is now prohibited by church law.  Anti-Japanese Act.  An Ottawa despach says: The  »pti-Japanese legislation ofthe British Columbia legislature of jlast session will be disallowed in .the near  future. The Japanese government  J|. ,quite indignant at .the unqorr-  ptomifang .attitude of the legators  m Jhe Pacific province. Mr. Noijse  Japanese consul general for Canada  has been instructed from Baron  Komura, minster of foreign affairs,  to protest most vigorously against  the action of British Columbia, and  appeal to the Canadian government  t> have these laws disallowed at an  early date. It is pointed out that  the Japanese are practically debar  red from the enjoyment of rights  and privileges granted to all other  aliens in the province. It is argued  also that the Immigration Law recently enacted is not only disadvantageous to Japanese subjects,  but is contrary to th.e Canadian constitution. The Japanese government say they are extremely surprised at such action being taken in  view of the severe restrictions im-  posed by them since 1900 upon emigration of their people to Canada.  the Province as their choice ,for  leader, except for a number of malcontents in Victoria, the party will  work well together. In Vancouver  we have never had friction of any  kind over Provincial affairs, and  when we supported the Semlin  candidates, among whom was Mr.  Cotton, it was oniy done by agreement as a Liberal movement.  There has been, however some disagreement relative to Dominion  politics.  "The Government started in with  a nominal majority, for every one  was looking out for his own district  and, or in some cases, for himself.  The provincial indlfctedness was  increased by a cotiple of millions, and at the end of two years  not even a nomial majority was left.  The Local Paper.  The local newspaper should be  found in every home. Children  should not grow up in ignorance  who can be taught to appreciate the  home press. It is said to be the  stepping stone of intelligence in all  those matters not to be learned in  books. Give your children a foreign paper which has not one word  concerning any person, place or  thing they ever saw, or perhaps even  heard of, and how could you expect  them to be interested? But let them  have a home paper and 12ad of the  persons whom they meet, and ot  places with which they are familiar,  and soon an interest is awakened  which increases with every arrival  of the local paper. Thus a habit of  reading is formed, and the children  will read the papers all their lives  and become intelligent men and  women, a credit to their ancestors,  strong in the knowledge of the  world as it is today.—Maple Ealls  Leader.

The Vancouver Ledger has interviewed Joseph Martin, M. L- A.  This is in part the Ledger's report  of Mr. Martin's remarks:  "I expect fio;n reports that I  have heard, but not from • direct  statements to myself, that soon after  Mr. Duusmuirs' return, he will  resign the Premiership, and that  Colonel Prior will step into his  place. In case this is done I dc  not know what the results will be.  I consider Colonel Prior as perhaps  the.best .choice that could be made  by 'the present Government to succeed Mr. Dunsmuir.
