All the canneries on the Fraser  ^iver are preparing to close today.  •T^is will mean 18 cent fish for the  •fishermen.   The total pack from all  sources on Wednesday was 272,873  cases, and it was expected that by  Saturday it would reach 275,000  , cases. There was but a small portion of tha,fleet out during the past  few day and they succeeded in making small catches until yesterday  when the fish entirely disappeared.  It is confidentally expected that the  pack will be abont 275,000 oases.  •from this, however, must be deducted 40,000 cases purchased'from  the traps, which places the pack of  the fish caught in the Eraser river  at 235,000 cases, the lowest pack  for -eight years.    The next lowest  Fraser river pack was in 1898, when  256,000,cases were put up.  This year the fishermen will be  paid qn the basis of 235,000 cases,  Jirhich wjlTmean that they will get  j8 cents fqr their fish.   If -the pack  had been 200,q^o:thc pri^e would  have been 20 cents, but atocsdjuKv'*  to the scaling agreement from 200,.  000 to 250,000 called for $8 cents)] swimming -near   the   Lulu   Island  bridge on Wednesday. His body  was .recovered from the water .fifteen  minutes after but all efforts at  3-esustication failed.  The annual fishermen's sports  held in New Westminster each ..year  will take place .here on Thursday  and Friday next. Attractive prizes  are being offered for an interesting  programme of sailing, rowing aud  Indian canoe races and athletic  sports.  Louis, the Indian fisherman who  was tried by speedy trial Wednesday  charged with stealing a boat and  net was acquitted.  The police committee have engaged twenty-five specials to enforce  the bycick by-law as Mayor Keary  says he is unable to get the regular  force to do so  ROYAL CITY NOTES  The weekly market on Friday  was poorly attended.

Word received from the Colum-  .bia river says that the pack there Is  ^estimated at 426,000 cases.  Terrible Tragedy.  .A terrible tragedy occurred Saturday morning at Victoria, when  Mrs. Fleming of 34 North Chatham  street, while violently insane, killed her daughter, Miss Pearl W.  Fleming, with an axe. The awful  deed was committed about a quarter to six o'clock, and while the  young lady was in bed asleep. She  died shortly afterwards. Mrs. Fleming is the widow of the late John  Fleming who cOmmiUedsvitcide last  December brooding over financial,,  matters. ,  Miss Fleming was to leave Saturday morning for Nanaimo, having  secured a position in a school there  She was', born in California, but  came to Victoria with her parents  about ten years ago.She was educated in the public schools and a general favorite among her many friends  She was abput twenty-two years of  age.        f '<$   Miss Pauline Johnson, the celebrated Canadian poetess and elocutionist, with J. Walter McRaye will  be in Ladner on Friday, August  29th. These well known entertainers are well .worth hearing ai;d  Delta people will no doubt take advantage of the opportunity of listening to them. They will be in the  town on Friday evening the 29th.  Admissiop 50 Cents,  An Oat Crop.  4kt'Harry Burr's form on Crescent  Island, it is worth going a considerable distance to gaze upon his out  crop. He has a field of about eighty  acres in which the grain stands up  in splendid shape and is about six  or seven feet in heighth. It is a  new kind of oat for this section only  jbeing recently tried. It was brought  put from the old country a couple  years ago, and is called the Tarter  King variety. From last years experience it will average two ton to  the aore. Geo McClusky in the  same neighborhood has also an excellent crop of the same variety and  equally as good as Mr. Burr's Besides these two, one or two other  farmers in the Delta have experimented with this variety and found  it very satisfactory.  Judgment for Plaintiff.  Judge Bole in the county court at  Westminster this week, rendered a  decision in the case of Farrell (Ladner) vs. A. R. Johnston & Co., in  which the plaintiff sued for an account for hay delivered. Judgn ent  was given in favor ofthe plaintiff  for $128.60.  Nanaimo Excursion.  Last Sunday the steamer Joan of  Nanaimo and Ladysmith arrived in  Ladner about two o'clock with a  large number of excursionists on  board. The steamer remained here  for a little over an hour and then  left for the mouth of the river to  watch the fishing operations. The  excursion we understand was under  the auspices of the Woodmen of the  World of Nanaimo and the Lady-  smith band and as none in Ladner  knew definitely when the boat would  arrive or anything about the excursion no preparations whatever were  made for a crowd of people. The  local lodge of the Woodmen not  even being aware of their uretheru  having the excursion, and as a result none were on hand to greet the  visiting brothers. The visiting  band bovs were taken in hand by  the Ladner band and entertained at  W. H. Smith's establishment, while  the rest of the crowd wandered  around the town, themajority kicking at the reception they received.  For the benefit of the visitors, they  were under a wrong impression.  It was only by accident that any  one in Ladner knew that the excursion was coming. The people who  got up the excursion had a sister  lodge iu Ladner. Why did they not  inFotmthem of their coming? The  hotels not being prepared could not  feed the whole outfit, and asLadner  is a temperance place and rain water  scarce, probably all did not quench  their thirst.  The people of L&dner would have  only been two pleased to help and  entertain the visitors and if they  ever have occasion to run another  excursion this way, by not taking  us unawares, they will receive a  better reception.  Six Years.  John Burns a coast pirate, who is  no doubt one of the ringleaders of  the notorious band who infest the  coast during the fishing season, was  arrested this week charged with  stealing a fishing boat belonging to the A. B. C. cannery at  Canoe Pass and also a net owned by  Lincoln McKay. He appeared be  fore Captain Pittendrigli at Steveston and was tried on both charges  and convicted on each, being sentenced to three years imprisonment  on each count, The terms not to  run concurrently and he goes to the  penitentiary^for six years. Burns  asked to have his trial before Capt.  Pittendrigh and we hope he is satisfied, as the general public are with  with it.  School Opening.  The public schools of Delta opened last Monday morning after the  holidays. In all the schools are a  change ot teachers, in Ladner the  principal and second teacher remain-  as before, aud in the third division Miss Burpee of Vancouver is  now in charge. The following are  the schools and their teachers:  Gulfside, Miss D. Davis; Trenant,  Miss Parke; Crescent Island' J. N.  McMillan and Last Delta, C. McEwen. At the opening was a very  good attendance of pupils and since  have increased.  The steamer Beaver which came  down from Westminster last Sunday had a large crowd on board to  witness the fishing fleet go out.  At Ladner quite a number took advantage of the tri",  STOCK FOR E. C.  L. W, Paisley, secretary of the  B. C. Live Stock Association left for  the east this week for the purpose  of selecting thoroughbred stock for  shipment to British Columbia. Mr.  Paisley will import one car load of  pure bred shorthorns, one car of  pure bred mixed stock, three cars  of shorthorn heifers.  The special orders are a very important feature of this year's importations. The Delta stock men  are in the lead for pure bred stock.  Mr. Paisley has conditional orders  for more than 300 head of dairy cattle for the Delta farmers. If he can  fill the conditions, he will bring  back 200 head for tbe Patterson  stock farm, 50 head for Calhoun and  50 for Reeve Ladner. Mr. Paisley  will recive orders until 17th cr 18th  of September. His address will be  the Black Horse Hotel, Toronto.  These shipments will leave Toronto about September 12th and will  be on hand for the provincial fair.  The pure bred shorthorns will be  sold by auction and the mixed stock  is for different B. C. ranchers.  A. O. U. W. Celebration  The Vancouver and Westminster  lodges ofthe A. 0. U. W. intend  celebrating Labor Day by running  an excursion to Ladner, a boat leaving both places 011 that day. The  local lodge are making preparations  for the celebration and have secured  the exhibition grounds for that purpose. During the day sports, etc.,  will be indulged in, prizes being arranged and probably a few will  be donated from the merchants of  Ladner.  Shooting Season.  An order-in-council was passed  Thursday legalizing the shooting of  quail and pheasant on and after the  first of next month.  Mrs. W. H. Smith and children  went up to Vancouver Friday evening for a few days visit.  Miss Wier of Victoria arrived  yesterday on a visit with her ,i3ter  Mrs. W. John Lanning.  Thos. Ovens ex-mayor of Westminster returned home this week  after an outing at Boundary Bay.  The prize lists for the Delta  Agricultural Society's fall fair will  he distributed in a couple of weeks.  Dr. J. C. Launcnberg, the eye  specialist, was iu Ladner Wednesday and Thursday attending to the  wants of those inflicted with defective 6ight.  The first new hay for this seai  was shipped on the steamer  yesterday to Victoria.   It was  the farm of Hollingshead and'-Lfv  iugston.  W. McClellan and J. Aitchison,  who have been employed at the Wind,  sor cannery on the Skeena river for  the past six months returned the  first of this week.  Mrs. David A. McKee and Miss  Vallance went up as far as Westminster with friends who had been  visiting here, and who were returning home on Thursday.  Joseph Oliver, the seven year old  son of John Oliver, M. P. P., had  the misfortune to break his arm this  morning while playing around  home. He was brought to town  by his father for medical attendance.  Unique Gathering of Canadian and American  Officials.  Last Saturday a rare incident  happened at the international boundary line in the vicinty of Boundary Bay a few miles from Ladner.  A. flag pole was erected and Union  Jack and the Stars and Stripes were  raised on the same hilliards. The  Union Jack was raised by Miss Corbould of Westminster and the Stars  and Stripes by Mrs. White wife of  the inspector of the U. S. immigration department at Vancouver.  Several speeches were made and  expressions of the good will and  unity which existed were heartily  cheered. Hon D. W. Healy and  Col. E. Dudley of Vancouver were  the first speakers, after which other  short speeches were made by those  present.  Col. White, inspector U. S. immigration; J. M. Bowell, collector of  Canadian customs; J. T. Miller, inland revenue collector, Vancouver;  T. J. Armstrong, sheriff, Frank  Devlin, New Westminster; Joseph  Jordan, constable, Ladner; and E.  0. S. Schofield, provincial librarian,  Victoria.  It was at the suggestion of Hon.  David W. Healy that this unique  gathering took place. Commissioner Healey has ever been a strong  advocate since taking office that the  Canadian and American authorities  should go hand in hand in enforcing the laws of both countries on  the border. He realized the serious  handicap of the officials of each  country working independently and  without rendering mutual assistance  in cases very often where assistance  is necessary to success. Mr. Healey  has done much towards bringing  about a friendly feeling between tbe  officials of the two countries who,  like the nation's watchdogs, are set  to guard the boundary line. Ths  flag-rising issue was organized to  mark the complete success of these  efforts, and the spot was chosen for  the occasion as the worst spot for  smuggling and other depredation of  any along the border. The comfort, peace and pleasure of campers  had been spoiled by drunken beachcombers who drove . a nefarious  trade in selling liquor to Indians  and in smuggling merchandise,  skipping from one side to,the other  as the hand of the law reached out  for them. In fact matters) got so  ;t*ib t^as only a*f#w.oays ago  -authorities of both couu-  while arresting a man named  ^ack Rivers'fpr supplying liquor to  ItJdians, wefe'threatened with violence, and one of the desperate characters in a mysterious way shot  himself through the heart.  Promises have been made that  the Boundary Bay gang is to be  wiped out, and the flag-rising incident is an earnest wish of these  promises.  T. White, high secretary and E.  Gartung, superintendent of organization of the Canadian Order of  Foresters arrived in Ladner Thursday afternoon. In the evenings,  meeting of the lodge was held after  which a banquet was given in W.  H. Smith's dining rooms to the  gentlemen mentioned, who are on  an extended trio of inspection, THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, AUGUST ,23 ^02.  ,— *    -.- -~T  '  THE   CtELTA 'NEWS  .

In a few more months the streets  of" Ladner will be in a bad shape for  pedestrian's.     Could not some feasible scheme be brought torward for  'the building of sidewalks along the  main  thoroughfares.      The   argument  is  used that the residents of  'the town would receive the benefit  6f sidewalks and that they should  pay for them.     It is quite likely  :that the people living in town would  use the walks most, but every day  ftuite  a  number come in from the  .district and we are sitr* they would  much prefer to have sidewalks than  travel   on   the   road covered with  slush.    There is  no   denying but  'what sidewalks are badly needed  'and we think it  is the duty of the  'council to discuss the matter and  say   whether   they  will favor the  building of sidewalks.  i.    .■■' . ■:   The teaching profession is one of  th? most important in the community ''and onit of the poorest paid.  "The" Nelson Economist points out  fcjjiit were the order of the Bank ol  Montreal, fixing the minimum salary on which employees may marry  at #1500 to apply in the case of  teachers there would be only two  in this province, the principals of  Victoria and Vancouver high schools  —who would be eligible. The  teachers have a just grievance in  this respect and it should be remedied. We believe also a higher  standard of teachers would be the  result in many cases.

BEKLEY  The Delta Agricultural Society  will hold its annual fall fair on Fri-  Friday and Saturday, September  25th and 26th. It is to be hoped  that all will do their utmost to make  the fair a success. The products of  ihe Delta should make a fine coltec-  'tion and we think it would be a  grand idea to send an exhibit to the  provincial fair at Westminster and  capture the first prize for the district exhibit.  Events, an Ottawa publication,  certifies to the accuracy of the following: " A' judge in Montreal  was asked recently to hand down a  i ' n ': I  judgment in a certain case he had  \ ... ■:  leard about two years before, when  tie replied that he had never heard  the case.

This is what Prof. C. A.  Sahlstrom, a Swedish chemist, who  -(b»s resided for many year* in London, told the Mail and Empire of  Toronto in an interview recently.  At a time when $^ a ton for hard  coal ii demanded of the worried  householder his promises are particularly interesting, for he claims  to be able to put peat fnel of greater  heating capacity than anthraoite on  the market at $4 per ton.  .Some years ago Prof. Sahlstrom  VW|8 a partner of Nordenfeldt, the  ,maker of the famous gun, and kter  was interested in the preparation of  food extracts, but at present is devoting all bis time to the production  of peat as a commercially practicable fuel, and the working up of the  bog products.  In a word, Paof. Sahlstrom's contention is that all previous attempts  to carbonate peat for fuel have  either destroyed valuable by-pro-  products or left them in the peat  Wjhere they reduced its value as a  ifuel, while by his process,  Which is np more expensive, these  .products are saved and the fuel left  'in a better condition. For instance,  .acetic acid and ammonia are chemicals Used to put out fires, while fibre  is of little .use. The by-products  extracted jfrom a ton of dry peat are  Worth ,$$. A ton of compressed  peat occupies 30 cubic feet of space,  while a ton of coal occupies 45 feet.  Putting it jin another way, .a tap. ,pf  anthracite (coal produces jtl.igQ.oj  Units of hfeat, vj-hile ajtonof.com-;  pressed peat produces over i5,ooo:  units.  The process is equally applicable  to sawdust. At present thousands  of dollars are spent in building destructors and in running them simply  to get rid of a commodity which  should be of great value. Soft coal  treated this way would give off valuable by-products, would be reduced  in bulk and would become a smokeless fuel.  One other important feature for  Panada is that this peat product is  : non-sulphurous, and will therefore  make iron equal to the best  charcoal iron.  A plant is now working in Spain,  and in Great Britain a company has  been formed to operate plants in  various parts.  As to the amount of peat available  he states that should Great Britain's  other supply of fuel be absolutely  Out off and her consumption of fuel  doubled, there is sufficient peat in  the British Isles to last for 2,000  years. The supply in Canada is  probably equally large.  $1,000 a Day.  John Wanamaker, one ofthe biggest retailers in the United States,  pays over $1,060 a day in advertising he makes use of a page a day in  five dailies in Philadelphia. This  list includes the Press, $60,000;  Ledger, $60,000; Times, $50,000:  Evening Telegram, $50,000; and  North American, $75,000, yearly.  The Philadelphia Record, before  renewing their contract with Mr.  Wanamaker, requested an advance  of $25,000 over the rate of the pre-  . ceding year. This was refused by  Mr. Wanumnker, but it is worthy  of mention that Lit Bros, took up  this proposition with the Record,  Without a moment's hesitation, and  this second firm is today paying the  enormous sum of $112,500 to the  Philadelphia Record. All of this  goes to show that the retailer has a  keen eye for profitaDle advertising  nnd you cannot fool such men as  lite? WftiMi^i^^Sense-  Langley Notes.  Miss P.
