The fortnightly meeting of the  Delta Municipal Council was held  in the Council chan bers last Saturday.  Present the Reeve, Councillors  Arthur, McCallan, T- E. Ladner  and Embree.  It was stated that Coun. Burr  was absent in Victoria.  The' minutes were read and confirmed.  The following correspondence  was read and dealt with:.  From Hope, Graveley & Co.,  stating that the Northern Counties  Investment Trust had disposed of  1-2 of Sf.. E. r-4 section 11 to Abbey  _nd others.    Received and filed.  From the Chief Commissioner  of Lands, stating that Mr.  _ prof I repotted that the part of the  dyke where the dredge cut in had  been attended to. Any expenditure therefore which the Council  may see fit to undertake as a  municipality will have to be borne  by it. »  In this connection the Roadmas-  ter's report was read, as follows:  Geo. Ormiston reported that part  of 1895 dyke where Pike's dredge  cut through, that said part ot dyke  is .16 inches below the level of the  dyke and is 10 feet wide on top of  said part of dyke, and further that  Mr. Shieves has dumped logs and  split wood into, the end of 1.895  drainage ditch, which a*e very apt  to float down  said dyke.  Resolved that a copy of the above  report be sent to the Commissioner  of Lands and that he be informed  that the Council still hold him responsible. If the matter was not  attended to the repairs would be  made at the Department's expense.  The Clerk was instructed to point  out that the dyke should extend 16  feet, not 10 feet, and that there was  every reason t- expect a severe test  of the dyke when the high water  came down.  An application from R. A. Coleman, for the use ot the pile driver,  was referred to the caretaker, R.  Shirley, to whom all applicants  would be referred in future. It  was necessary for some one to. be  held responsible and the present  custodian had looked after the  Council's property in an efficient  lungerF ,,. , ■■,. .,  ITChe report of a resolution passed  at a meeting of Sunbury residents,  W_ieh' appealed fn our last issue,.  was then read. A deputation consisting of chairman. Butterffeld,, secretary Doveand others was present.  •^Continued on page 5.)  NARROW ESCAPE  A fire outbreak at Port Guicbon  and another at La(lner within an  hour should make the residents of  the Delta stir up, This actually  occurred last Saturday afternoon  both from the same cause, sparks  from the chimney stack of the  str. Transfer, which was burning  wood instead of coal, owing to the  mines being shut down. Fortunately it was daylight and the outbreaks were quickly detected and  promptly extinguished by energetic  citizens. Tbe roof of the large B.  C. Packing Co.'s shed adjoining  the Port Guichon hotel caught in  two places, and two large gaps in  the roof were made. In one case  a rafter Was badly burned. At  Ladner it was the roof of the wharf  shed which caught. The alarm  caught the ears of the Council and  Councilor Embree was the first up  with a bucket to quench the outbreak. At the cannery the root is  high and not easily got at, but  Constable Jordan actively led the  rescue party and tbe flames were  put out before the wind did much  harm. In both instances it was a  narrow escape from a serious conflagration. The C. P. R. should at  once place spark catchers on all  their river steamers and the public  should renew their efforts to secure  fire protection, with the assistance  of the Municipal Council and the  Provincial Government.  To Hear Residents Opinion aad Receive Petition Protesting Against  Damming Slough. .  On Thursday next residents of  the Delta will have the opportunity  of hearing the Canadian entertainers, Miss Isabel T Kerr, elocutionist, and Miss Queenie McCoy, soloist. The entertainment will be  in the Ladner Town-Hall and is  under the auspices of St Andrew's  Presbyterian Church.  Tenders are called in this issue  for the collection of the road tax,  to be in by noon on Saturday next.  In this connection an error appears  in the report of the Council's last  regular meeting. The motion  should read "road tax" not "dog  tax." The collection of the latter  has already been provided for„  Householders will be attracted  by the lines offered in John A.  Lee's advertisement. Special attention is paid to furnishing the  home. The emporium is situated  ki the Dupont block, New Westminster, and buyers are invited to  inspect the show rooms.

Present the Reeve, Councilors  Arthur, McCallan, Burr, T. Ladner and Embree.  Messrs. Whiteside and Dove  were also present, representing the  Sunbury complainants. Tbe latter  was called upon to explain the  opinion ofthe public meeting, which  has already appeared in these columns. The Reeve then called upon  the clerk to read the following  petition:  We the undersigned hereby notify your humble  body that we shall hold you responsible for suy I  damage whatsoever that may be incurred to our  drainage or farms if II. D. Benson is allowed to  close up the slough between Tilbury Island and  the land on the south side of the Fraser River.  [■Signed) R. Mitchell, W. 8. Whiteside, J. Cain',  R. II.

The following report of Councilors Ladner and Embree was then  read: As instructed we consulted  Howay & Reid, the Council's solicitors, and Mr. Keefer, the Dominion Agent at Westminster. The  latter stated that Benson had applied for permission to close up the  slough, and that he had recommended that the application be  granted. He suggested that they  should refer the matter to the Dominion Government.  The reports were received and  filed and to be endorsed in the  minutes of the meeting.  Councilor Ladner noted that the  permission would come direct to  Beuson from the Dominion Government, not through Mr. Keefer.  The latter had recommended it to  conserve the waters of the river.  The lawyers advised that the Council could not do anything to stop  the work but could object and leave  the matter to the Dominion Government. He moved that, as complaints had been made and $80,000  spent in dyking, and that three  boxes were placed near the slough  which might be impaired, that the  Council protest against the damming of the slough and if permission had been granted to ask tbat  the decision bereconsideied. Copies  of reports to be sent to the Dominion Government with the protest,  to Aulay Morrison, M. P., and a  copy to be retained in the office.  Seconded by Councilor Embree and  carried unanimously.  The rules of order were suspended so that some other urgent maU  ters could be dealt with.  Councilor T. Ladner stated that  Dr. Wilson reported that surveyor  Draper had found the road and  bridge between his land and Dove's  was wrongly pegged originally.  The matter could be set right  amicably. It was left to Councilor  Burr to report at the next meeting.  Councilor T. Ladner was authorized to repair the Trunk road between his granary and the schoo  house.

Councilor McCallan was instructed to repair the Gulfside road, the  expenditnre not to exceed   $1,000.

The meeting then adjourned.  OFFICIALS  TOUR  Mayor McCaudless  and   Aldermen   of  Victoria,   United   State-  Consul Smith   and   City Engineer  Topp arrived at Port Guickon   on  Saturday by the new ferry steamer  Victorian.    President Woods   and  Manager Van Sant were also   on  board.    The party were greeted by  several  Delta   residents   including  the Reeve and some of  tbe   Councilors,  who   attended   unofficially.  The visitors   proceeded   on   their  tour of inspection by train without  delay and went   through   to   New  Westminster after a brief stoppage  at Cloverdale.   At the Royal City  they were entertained  at luncheon  at the Hotel Guichon by the Mayor  and Aldermen of that city. .  The company has arranged with  the New Westminster ferry and  the B. C.

It is their intention to   run   a  it was resolved to offer as a special j number of excursions from Victoria  to the Delta during the season.  The service is to be maintained  every day in the week, the fares to  be charged beinp- the same as those  which the C.   P.   R.   has now. it*  ! effect, the rate to New Westminster  ; and Vancouver being £2.50 and to  '. Cloverdale, $2.  Full freight cars are buing take_  ! across daily and   traders   at   both  I ends anticipate increase of business  by the new connection.  Eventually the line will be shortened from Oliver's farm direct for  South Westminster by which the  time occupied will be considerably  curtailed.  In order to satisfy the municipal  authorities that the   ferry steamer  Victorian is up to the requirements  of the contract between   the   city  and the Victoria Terminal Railway  Company in respect to its carrying  capacity, City Engineer   Topp  is  arranging for the steamer to   make  a trip, from Sidney carrying eight  loaded cars—the   bylaw   requiring  that accommodation for   that   load  must be provided.

Tt-.c  ticasutcr^nd ^c  retary were empowered to order  same from Benson's, London, to  cost about $30. It was thought  that such a prize would be an interesting relic in years to come.  The treasurer reported that he  had about $280 on hand. Some  repairs and building had fo be done  on the grounds, but they must be  as'economical as possible so as to  devote the greater part ofthe funds  to prize money and encourage exhibitors.

McCallan were appointed a committee to erect sheds for the thoroughbred Durham cattle at once,  the cost not to exceed $200.

RIC. A. FRASER,  '   Editor and Proprietor.  SATURDAY,   MAY   26,    1:902.  'No government is infallible, least  of all a government of  centralization.   It is  only natural  that   the  people who inhabit the inner zones  rtiust have more influence  at   the  political centre than those who live  on the outskirts.   It does not matter whether the'government for the  time being is Liberal or Conserva-  rive, the danger is   always   there.  Ministers themselves are often powerless in the coils of red tape, and  the permanent officials frequently  rule the roost in spite of the crowing  cocks, who strut about the rialta.  Then again the permanent heads  are not free from the toils of the cir-  cumlocution system. Sometimes em-  ployees   of many years standing,  who live at   the   circumference, of  the circle fear that   their   services  may  be  dispensed   with   because  young scions of influence in the old  cbuntry have to be   provided with  , billets—at a distance—on their ar-  ryfaj   with   introductions   at    the  capital.    T^ere is reason to he-tar*  that cases of this nature are not in-  frequent.   No blame   can   be   attached t« their immediate superiors,  as they also receive hints that their  services will not be required if they  are not   amenable.    Others more  complacent can bt found.    On the  i .  cc-i^jary they would  much   prefer  tp retain the   old   hands who have  a ■■■■  • *j  work_d. thejr way up   from   cabin  boy to skipper, as it were, but they  have their bread and butter to consider.    In theory there is the same  justice for the west as for the east—  ft>r the rural as for the urban popu-  lations.   What is   the   safeguard?  Tvhe proper course is for any aggrieved-party to approach the member   for   his   district, who will, in  nine cases out otten, see that there  is^ fair play.    Fortunately our   re-,  preientatives in tha Dominion Parliament   are   above   the   common  ttjuck of Provincial politicians, and  In cases of this kind should also be  above   party   influence.    A   tried,  public servant is  entitled  to  fair  play be be Liberal or Conservative.  GREATLY  ALARMED  . My a Persistent Cough, but Perma-  'nently Cured by Chamberlain's  Cough,feemedy.  -; H. P-.,Burgage, a student at law,  "In Greefcy-le, S.C.', had been troubled for! jour'or 'five years with a contiguous^ cough w^fci. he says  1 "greatly^, alarmed, s me, causing me  to fear that I was. in the first stage  of consumption.";! Mr. Rutbage,  having seen Chamberlain's Cough  Remedy advertised, concluded to  try It. Now read what he says of  it; "I soon felt a remarkable  change and after using two bottles  of t_e twenty-five cent size, was  permanently   cured1."     Sold by F.  1 iiffi pis  Assessments Mainly Upr.  held. Cauce for the  Goose and Saucs for  the Gander.  The adjourned sitting of the  above was held at the Council  Chambers last Saturday, the chairman, Reeve Ladner, and Councillors Arthur, McCallan, T. E. Ladner and Embree being present.  It was resolved, in accordance  with legal advice, that all lands  taken by the Municipal Council for  road purposes be exempted from  taxation.  On the motion of Councillor McCallan, seconded by Councillor T.  E. Ladner, it was unanimously resolved that only the lands of the  Victoria Terminal Railway be assessed this year and.* not the im-.  provements, as they were not in  existence when the assessment was  made.  W. E. Curtis, appealed on the  grounds of excessive valuation and  transfer. The assessment was for  $5,800. The applicant stated that  the property was purchased a  month ago for $4,800, and that  $500 worth had been sold to the  Terminal Railway. He therefore  claimed a reduction of $1,500.  Transfer noted but excess not sustained.  . W. H. Ladner, excessive valuation and excessive acreage. Coun.  Arthur acted as chairman in this  case. Applicant based his claim  on the Ontario Act, which provided  that land divided into town r lots  but [not immediately available for  building purposes should be assessed on acreage. He pointed out  that the B. C- Act did not touch  on the point, but the fact of putting  in a few pegs did not make the  ground more productive. Even  land which he had pegged off for  roads had beenjassessed. If no reduction was made he would have  to resign and test the case.  Capt. OliTer said his land was  assessed as towu lots as soon as he  had it laid out.  Coun. T. Ladner thought it  would be setting a dangerous precedent. Qther estates would also  claim exemption;  It was resolved that the assessment stand except the land marked  for streets.. With regard to excessive acreage, applicant having  proved his contention by plans  drawn up by surveyor Warren, it  was ordered that the acreage be reduced from 116 4-5 to 76 1-2 acres  McDonald Bros, asked for transfer of assessment tothe BU Q. Packing Co.   Granted.  Wm. Alexander wrote from San  Jose, Cal., stating that he was not  acquainted with the property and  had taken it over for non payment  of debt. It was assessed at $1,600,  but his agents could not sell it for  $1,000. He therefore asked tor a  reduction. It was stated that the  ground in that locality had been  reduced from $15 per acre to $10  per acre, and the assessment was  consequently allowed to stand.  Geo. Lasseter. i*s portion transferred to Terminal Railway. Noted  accordingly. '  F. J. Coulthard.^applied for exemption of land cut off. by the dyke.  It was resolved to sustain the assessment as all land owners at Mud  Bay were similarly treated and did  not complain.  J. L. Waddell—transfer to railway. Noted, applicant to be informed that railway only admitted  4.86 acres, not 5 1-10 acres, as  stated by him.  G. Byrom applied in person to  correct the railway list of purchases  -vhich imluli;.! 6 3-4 acre; as the  quantity.purchased trom him. Applicant stated they had taken over  22 1-2 acres from him. It was  decided to inform the attorneys  for the company.  The list of lauds purchased by  the Victoria Terminal Railway Co.  was then read, showing about 90  acres had been taken over in the  municipality.  This concluded the business.

PBVTA CORPORATION  JN CON .LAVE.  i _t. tsvi.vt tiiu not i_i.uk the  Council hau any 'power in the matter and did not see why the Council  should be consulted. The dam in  question was. in navigable waters  au_ tkeir boundary only extended  to the south bank ot the Fraser.  Coun. l,adiier had been informeti  by Mr. Bu.rr t_at other laud owners  were probably against the resolution, including ii'ivine and Mitchell.  The. Cleric stated that some 01  the settlers were a.s„iug Benson to  Ciose the slough-  D. Dove pointed out these people  lived further dowiu The slough  was very shallow at. low water. The  matter was one of vital importance  ifi thtm and be considered the  Council, were equally interested in  they: drainage scheme, and if their  actios was endorsed by the Council  it would carry weight. There  should be no delay, as Benson, who  had an axe to grind* had already  commenced the work.. In.reply to  the Raeve he said that no permission had been asked or given to  join on to the Council's dyke. They  were not antagonistic to Benson,  but if they lost that drainage they  must obtain it from some other  source.. If carried and the work  was allowed to proceed the Hume  pox, which cost the Council $800  last year,, would be useless.  The Clerk stated that Benson  had obtained permission from the  Pominion Government.  Mr. Djojve continued and characterized the week as a most dangerous, experiment. All the Council's  boxes would, be- useless in course of  tiine.  Coun.. Ladner said he had hitherto thought the scheme a good idea,  but since his at ten lion had been  Called to the matter he- was inclined to think the deputation had  grounds of complaint. He drew  the Council's attention to the silting  of the river bed outside their Council chambers, which was a case in,  point.. He considered the application required consideration,. It  seemed that the work, would impair  the utility of the Hume box and the  two boxes at Mitchell's. They  Would be constantly digging out  and putting up boxes elsewhere.  Coun. McCallan said no one  could tell which way the- Ftaser  rjver was going. It) might be a  good proposition or it might not..  The slough may be filled up in a  few years.  The Reeve referred to the gunboats drawing 15 and 1,6 feet which  used to pass up this channel years  ago.  Mr. Butterfield said the deputation were well aware that the  Council had no power except as it  effected their boxes, but their influence would go. a long way.  The Reeve; tegretted the absence  pf Coun. Burr, who represented  Ward 3.  D. Dove admitted in reply to  the Clerk that the bar was higher  and the channel deeper by three  feet since the box bad been put infc  but said in time the silt would be  up against tbe box doors so that  they could not be opened.  Coun. Ladner said the   Crescent  Island boxes would be affected also.  The Reere—In fact all of them  would be affected.  D; Dove said that Benson had  promised .them that if any harm  camp o£ it be would come with his  dredge and clear it out to his last  cent,, but they could not depend on  promises.  C-Un. Ladner remarked that the  Council had also had experience  with regard to promises.  A. Falk said that the slough was  two miles long and a quarter of a  mile wide and suggested that if  they could not stop the work Benson should be allowed, to go. down  as far as the Hume box and turn  the sloughj into a reservoir;. It  would make an ideal one.  H. Burr wished it to be known  \hat he was. net in favor of the dam.  He Lad heard tbat his   name   bad should be priced the same as sheep,  been mentioned ar, favorable to the Coun. Arthur said  when calves  scheme and he wished to   deny it. went astray it was time for theni to  On the motion of Coun.   Ladner b: turned into veal,  it was decided, no or  against, that The  Reeve   remarked  that   tl e  the Council should  visit   the work tariff could  be   altered   at   future  on Monday in a body,- inspect it  aud act in accordance with their  judgment. Coun. E-nbree undertook to postpone an engagement so  as to be present, and the deputation  thanked the Council and withdrew.  Marshall Smith appeared in person to apply tor repairs to the piled  right of way between his store and  wharf. He was not the owner but  only the lessee for a short term of  years.' The Council's employees  used the road for drawing gravel,  etc., and had reduced the value of  the property fifty per cent. He  considered if it was used as a public  highway the Council ought to keep  it in repair.  The Reeve said they neither allowed or disallowed the teams goiag  that way. They had no power to  spend money on any right of way  unless it was gazetted a public  road. The applicant could stop  trespass if he liked. He could put  up a notice, "No thoroughfare."  In reply to Coun. Embree the  applicant said the late owner had  hitherto kept the way in repair.  Coun. Ladner agreed that it was  an injustice to the lessee,   but   upheld the Reeve's ruling.  -Coun. Arthur   said   the   parties  could not prevent it being  a  highway after six years.  The Reeve thought 21 years.  The Clerk said that  formerly in  Ontario it was 21 years, but it had  been reduced to ten years.  Constable -Jordan w-s instructed  to stop die Council's teamsters"  ; going that way and it was decided  that nothing could be done in the  way of repairs' unless the present  owner consented to it being proclaimed a public highway.  The Clerk was instructed to  again claim $28, cost of recovering  and burial of the last body found  in the river, and to draw the attention ofthe Attorney-General to his  promise to the Reeve to reconsider  the decision of his deputy.  The following by-law was then  jjead a first time, to rescind certain  highways? x. That the highways  now established (a) Trenant School  Reserve (b) Lot 112 G. 2 to the  Ferrell road (c) section 33, running due east to Mud Bay be and  are hereby rescinded. 2. That  the highway established commencing, at the Fraser River at Lot 119  G. 2, running south, be and is  hereby rescinded, and in lieu thereof a highway be established, commencing at the N. E. corner of Lot  119 G. 2, a width of 45 feet,  Capt. Oliver wished to know the  Council's object in depriving the  public of these roads, as they may  be required years hence.  Coun. Ladner said the parties  interested did not want the roads  and it. would necessitate the erection of fences tor no purpose. He  protested against these constant interruptions ol i.'.ieir proceedings. It  all the landowners igieed it was no  one else's business to interfere.  The Reeve did not like to choke  off any ratepayer desiring information.  Coun. Embrew pointed out that  all the reside nts had petitioned the  Council iu this instance.  Capt. Oliver said nevertheless  they did not constitute the municipality. He would be glad to get  up a petition if he would get a few  acres of land by it.  The following by-law was then  read a first time: By-law to amend  the Pound Bylaw. 1. That section  6 is hereby repealed and the following substituted therefor. The  owner or other person entitled to  the possession of any animals mentioned in paragraphs hereof and impounded for being found straying  or running at large or tethered,  shall pay the poundkeeper as follows: For horses, mules and asses  $t each, horned and other cattle  $1 each, goals and sheep 25 Lents  each, swine $1 each.  Coun,  Embree  thought  calves  fi-.  readings before the bylaw was  ally passed.  The Reeve stated that a tempo,  ary loan was required and that the  were empowered to borrow sank  providing it was repaid before tit  end of the year. The Clerk was  instructed to advertise the intentio:  of the Council to take action in thi:  respect.  On the motion of Coun. McCal-  Ian the Clerk was also instructed to  advertise for tenders for the coile:-  tion of the dog tax, to be iu before  next meeting, the tax to be collected to the satisfaction ofthe Council.  Seconded by Coun. Ladner.  The Reeve said complaint had  been made to him that the dirt on  the slough road at Point Arthur  was higher than the planking.  Coun. Arthur said he was taking  out the clay to make the ditch  broader—a continuous ditch. People should wait until tbe road was  finished. Chinamen were employed  at six bits per rod, as white men  could not be obtained for twice that  rate of pay. Tbey could have his  resignation if they liked, as he was  tired of the Council, and he was  not able to turn a spade without  some outsider putting in  He would like to know  formant.  The Reeve declined to  It was his duty to bring  complaint made by a ratepayer.  Coun. Embree wanted to know  if;the railway were going to fix up  the load at the several crossings.  On the Arthur road there were no  planks between lhe rails, and ties  had to be used to get over.  Coun. Ladner said he had spoken  to the railway aathorities aboul  this, as many teamsters and people  were complaining. ■  Coun. Arthur said the present  state was a danger to traffic and  there would possibly be an accident  soon as tbey could not see a train "~  comiug owing to the ground not  being cleared.  The action of the Reeve and  Clerk in advancing $100 to E. B.  Nobles on gravel contract was sustained.  The following accounts were also  passed for payment: Wm. Alexander, hauling timber, $8.25; M  Smith, sundries, $8.75; Sam Kee,  Mason road, $8: R. H. Gillespie,  teams, #146.25.  The Council then adjourned till  3oth inst.
