A jovial crowd, excellent music,  and a good floor, helped to make  tbe Steveston Athletic Clubs' ball,  o» Tuesday evening last, a great  success, conducing to the guests assembled a pleasure long to be remembered.  The town hall was prettily and  tastefully decorated with evergreens,  colored tissue paper and flags, and  the bright dresses ot" the ladies assembled' made the scene one of splendor.  A special train from Vancouver,  arriving about 8:30, brought in a  large crowd of dancers, who, with  those from Ladner aud. surrounding places made up about one hundred qouples- The large and wall-  waxed floor, however, gave ample  room to this large number.  The grand . march was begun  about 9 o'clock, and shortly after  the ball was in full 'swing..'  Wm. Dunn, vice.-pres., of the  .club, acted as master of ceremonies  and gave excellent satisfaction to  everyone present. Number followed number in rapid succession  until the program finally wound up  when about thirty or more numbers  had been danced..  I Supper was served by the committee, in the rear of the hall, the  toom occupied by the gymnasium  club, at 12 o'clock, two long tables  being spread with delicious and  tempting viands,.  The music was furnished by Har-  pur_ orchestra, of Vancouver, an  orchestra far-famed for its excellent  music and at Steveston they did  not fail in keeping up to their standard.  The committee, whose untiring  efforts helped so much to make the  ball a success, was. composed of H.  Willwater, pres., Wm. Dunn, vice,  pres., A. Carrier, and S. McHugh.  The same committee propose to  have another social dance in about  two weeks.  The enterprising residents of  % Steveston have a useful and valuable addition to the amusements  of the town, in the form of a gymnasium room occupying the rear  end of the town hall. They have  recently purchased a large and  beautiful piano Which would be a  credit to a.city club. They uum  ber 35 members.  Steyes-on.'s. Chinese settlement  are building an addition to their  town in erecting a large store and:  dwelling.  A man named Finlaysony hailing  from Victoria, was convicted in the  police court this week and given  accommodation in the free restaurant for three mouth., for raising  $20 on the security of a salmon net  and sundry articles left iu his care,  said property being valued at over  1100. He had been drinking and  while under the influence of the  corn juice, took occasion to prolong  his spree.  A man, professing to be a cook,  and claiming a home in London,  Eng., charged with confiscating  $18 from the Richmond Hotel, decided to visit Pt. Roberts, Wash.  He was cleverly caught, however,  by Ladner's chief of police, J. Jordan, and returned to Steveston.  He was taken to the Royal City  and sent up for trial at the spring  assizes.  Steveston is to have a cannery  that she may well be proud of, it  being perhaps the largest cannery  in the world. This new canneiy,  now in course of construction, is to  be named the "Imperial." The  cannery frontage extends about 350  feet and will contain four lines of  machinery and give employment to  about 300 people. English capital,-  with headquarters at Vancouver, is  back of the scheme.  THE LICENSE QUESTION.  it is more or less a public affair, we  did not think we would be running  up against the interest of the existing hotels, and so lose patronage.  The same may apply if we hap-  ] cued to state that some person was  coming into the district to sell sacks,  binder twine and other goods used  by the farmers or should we happen  to mention that some one was going to open another harness shop,  bakery, or freight shed with scales,  simply because they were already  here and therefore no license should  be granted.  PING-PONG.  The second ping-pong tournament was held ki Waddell's hall on  Monday evening. The finals were  played off last evening. Following is the result:  Ladies Singles.  Mrs. M. Smith     ) ,        ,  Miss J. Thirkle    j b~l    b~^  Gentlemen's Singles.  F. J. MacKenzie  Marshall Smith    | 6"4'    6~4,  Doubles.  W, H. Wilson and Miss M. Green.  F. J. MacKenzie and Miss Carss.  6-4.    6-2.  The final tournament of the season will be held  on   Monday evening, March 30th.    The  ladies will  serve refreshments.  LOCAL ITEMS.  By the time that this issue of the  Delta News is in the hands of its  subscribers, the question of another  liquor;- license and hotel will be settled one way or the other.  In our opinion every one is entitled to his or her own ideas with  regard to the liquor question, and  all axe entitled to vote for or against  the granting of a new license in accordance with their views and  principles.  If the license is granted, the licensee is responsible if he does not  go according to. the act, and the  public need not put up with the  house if run at all disorderly, and  have their recourse. So it is not  likely that a man would invest his  money and run chances of having  his. license taken away. With one  license in Ladner it is too much oi  a monopoly, and without any, the  place would soou drift into the  state that the town of Chilliwack  is.  It is a well-known and undispu-  table fact that the present hotel accommodation is inadequate for the  town,, and many complaints are  made by travellers who are unable  to obtain rooms in either hotel.  During the past week people who  were in a position to pay, had to go  begging for a bed.  Both the existing hotels were  built when requirements were very  different to the present, and neither  of them have been enlarged or kept  up to the times, so that a person  would be quite within his right in  applying for a license for a well-  equipped and up-to-date hotel.  The Delta Newa has been very  careful not to make any comments  on the case while sub judice, but we  consider the public is always interested iu knowing what is going on  either in the town or district.    As  No service will   be held in   the  Baptist church Sunday.  James Welsh returned yesterday  from a few days visit to Huntingdon. ■   Percy Smith returned yesterday  from a few months visit with relatives in the east.  J. E. Gilmore, accountant at the  Standard Cannery, Skeena river,  left Vancouver Thursday for the  North.   a   Mrs. H. G. Taylor has leased  Samuel Morley's property. Mr.  Morley expects to go east shortly  where his family are at present.  The Ladner Cornet Band played  several selections on the street  Wednesday evening. It is hoped  that open air concerts will be frequent during the summer months.  Arrangements should be made for  a grand stand at some suitable  point in the town.  A chinaman working on a boom  of logs owned by Grant & Kerr,  tell off yesterday afternoon, and  getting under the logs was drowned.  Several Chinamen who were with  him at the time were unable to rescue him. The body was recovered  shortly after the accident.  M. N. Reid left on Saturday for  Seattle, and will shortly leave for  Chilkat, Alaska, where he is interested in the canneries owned by the  Alaska Fisheries Union. Rod  Reid will leave next week where  he will also be engaged in the canneries.  The snow has disappeared and  we believe everyone can go to work  with the assurance that the winter  is over. Wm. Pybus predicted the  recent snow storm two weeks before it came, but his friends thought  he was away out, but are now convinced that his prognostications are  correct.  OF IH  §18 III 10 «! H.  Premier Laurier Gives  Notice of the Chinese  Resolution. New Zealand Labor Laws.  L. P. Duff of Victoria will be assistant Canadian counsel in the Alaskan boundary settlement.  The Premier gave notice that on  Friday, he will move tbat the Dominion House go into Committee  on the resolution for a tax of $500  on Chinese entering Canada, and  that the persons in command or in  charge of tlie vessels bringing them  be personally liable for the tax on  such immigrants arriving by such  vessels.  "Joe" Martin announces that he  is prepared to smash the British  Columbia government on condition  that the majority who act with him  do not then attempt to form another  government. That is very like  "Joe." He is usually "against tbe  government"—even the one he is  in.—Montreal Witness.  A Nottawasaga hotelkeeper has  stopped his subscription to the Col-  lingwood Enterprise because it censured councilors who advocated a  reduction in the license fee. from  $"0.        •  The fisheries department sent  out a second batch of salmon fry,  sixty thousand, from the hatchery  at Bon Accord. The young sock-  eyes were put out in rivers flowing  into Jervis inlet.  The announcement is officially  made that the president of the  United States will visit Puget Souud  in May next and be in Seattle on  the 24th and 25th.  A new idea, called a "national  tea," netted $150 for the ladies of  Woodstock Baptist church. The  tables were made representative of  Canada, England, Ireland, Scotland, and the United States, and  were appropriately decorated.  Iu connection with the request ot  the Vancouver Liberal Association for a provincial convention  it is proposed that tor the convenience of upcountry delegates, the  convention shall be held at Revel-  stoke. It is considered probable, in.  view ofthe possibility of a general  election after the next legislative  session, that the convention .will be  called to meet at an early date.  A letter from Port Simpson tells  of a tremendously heavy fall of snow  along the north British Columbia  coast. At some places there is four  feet on the level. The Indians are  reported to be elated, and when  asked to explain the cause of jubilation, said, " Plenty snow, plenty  salmon." It will be remembered  last fall that a severe winter was  predicted by the Indian which turn  ed out to be just the opposite.  The opinion in political circles is  that Ralph Smith, M. P., will go  into provincial politics to lead the  liberals. He will have the support  of Senator Templeman and other  members of the dominion cabinet.  Martin and his following among  the liberals are opposed to Smith.  According to news from Alberni,  Alan W. Neil, M. L- A., will support the present government, hav-  been authorized by his committee  to do so. He will not be "slavish"  but he thinks the present time inopportune for a dissolution. He  also intends not to be in opposition  to Joseph Martin.  Mrs. Fleming, the unfortunate  woman who killed her daughter  with an axe last year at Victoria,  while in a fit of insanity, has recovered here faculties. She is at  the Westminster asylum. Those  who have visited her recently say  she is looking remarkably well, and  that she is entirely rational. She  has no memory of the terrible tragedy in which she took her daughter's life. The whole horrible occurrence is a complete blank to her.  The news was broken to her sometime ago, and came as a great shuck.  In' a few mouths it will be possible to travel around the earth in  40 days. The route will be as follows: Paris to Vladivostock, thirteen days; to Nagasaki, two days;  to Yokonama, two days; to Vancouver twelve days; to New York,  via C. P. R., four days; to Cherbourg, six days; to Paris, less than  half a day. A generation ago  Jules Verne wrote a book called  "Round the World in Eighty  Days," which was looked upon as  an ingenious mixture of science  and romance.  LABOR LAWS.  New Zealand's advanced labor  legislation is seemingly undergoing  a crucial test. The cabinet makers  at Auckland demanded higher pay,  and the arbitration court which decides disputes of the kind, decreed  that they should receive is. 3d. an  hour. The employers thereupon  shut up their factories, and will import instead of making furniture.  It is now a question if the arbitration courts can compel the employers to pay wages higher than they  think they can afford. If they cannot, New Zealand's labor laws will  cease to be held up as a model for  other strike-worried lands.  Mrs. F. J. Mackenzie and Miss  Daisy Davis are visiting at Westminster.  Ell  II  Work on the Wharf and  Right -of-Way Assuming1 a Reality. Engine  to Arrive Next Week.  From the appearance of the work  going on in the Delta with the construction of the Victoria Terminal  Railway, it is quite likely that in a  few weeks railway facilities will be  in vogue. On the Cloverdale end  a:i engine is at work laying track  and is progressing rapidly. From  Port Guichon the track has bee-  laid about five miles out and an engine is expected to arrive daily to  push the work on at this end. The  large wharf and slip for the transfer  of the cars on the boat is going  ahead, two pile-drivers being at  work driving the piles.  At the rate the work is going on  at present the track should be all  laid between Port Guichon and  Cloverdale by the middle of April.  The steamer Victorian, which is  at present in Victoria harbor, has  been re-arranged and is now capable of carrying the cars across the  gulf. By this route passengers will  be able to make the trip to Victoria  in about three hours less time.  GIVES A BONUS.  The second public meeting called  for the purpose of approval of the  general scheme for supplying Chilliwack with electric light and water  power, agreed to offer $10,000 by  way of bonus to any company which  will in return guarantee a certain  number of street lights and hydrants for fifteen years.  NOT SETTLED YET.  The conference projected between  the Canners' Association and the  white and Japanese fishermen, in  regard to the price of fish for the  coming season, has not yet materialized. The delay is said to be  due to the death of the secretary of  tbe Japanese Union, and the resignation of Charles Durham, who fot  the past three years, has acted as  secretary of the British Columbia  Fishermen's Union.  Mr. and Mrs. W, T. Wodden, of  Vancouver, are visiting with Mr.  and Mrs. L- Gifford.  E- C. Smith, M.'L. A., expressed  himself in an interview at Fernie  this week as in favor of the present  legislature living out its natural  period, provided that no extravagant railway legislation is introduced.  The government agent at Westminster has posted up notices that  he will hold a court of revision at  the court house on May 4; on the  voters' lists for New Westminster  Dewduey, Richmond and Delta.  A farmer ordered a barrel oi fish  for Lent to be shipped to his local  depot. On calling for his goods,  and noticing C. O. D. in large letters on the barrel, exclaimed:  " those people, I ordered herring." THE- DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, MARCH- 21, 1905,  THE DELTA NEWS  Published every Saturday.

Tbe merchants and  business  men   of the_ city, are the  chief sufferers.

On the island the miner's  union has affiliated with the organizations controlling the unions of  states. Dunsmuir objects to this  and claims be is willing for..tbe men  tt> organize, but he does not \yish  to be dictated to by foreign, unions  and as a result has struck.  LAUGHABLE  INCIDENT.  Two mischievous girls who are  members of a church choir in a  neighboring town, figured recently  in a laughable incident, which is  quite.good enpugb to,bear, repeatr  ing. In so„et>wkyykHO^iv <#uy, to.  themselves, they, became, possessed  of the subject of the minister's Sunday morning sermon, and thereupon  set about, selecting,. so,ngs in harmony with the thej»e. Qu Sunday  niorning they were, on hand bright  and early looking innocent enough  to deceive a brace of Pinkerton detectives. One of them seated herself at the organ and played "Faint  Yet Pursuing," which was sung as  a, voluntary." Then the minister  arose and consulted tbe list which  had been- given him called for No.  395. The choir,sang "Almost Persuaded. The, minister arose and  announced, the., therne ".Courtship  and Marriage. '-• and rea,d the.leg-  son and called .he^nex^ song. The  choir sang "Triumph at Last," and  the congregation began to look  amused. "After prayer sing No.  2.01," said the .minister and his petition asked tha,t(the.spirjt of levity  which possessed some of his hearers  be banished, Then the choir sang,  "Hasten Lor'd, the Glorious Day,"  and everybody laughed. Even the  minister bad difficulty iu stifling a  smile when the choir struck up  "Behold the.Bridegroom Cometh,"  and, the, congregation became pos-  following, are^the. names of j itivelv hilarious as the organ pealed  „v__c_    -Rrit__"Vni««,1,;J on the opening   notes  of   "What  Shall the Harvest Be?" And  w throughout-those .two girls preserved their expression of saintly innocence and afterward decided it  was the most "peculiar and striking coincidence''' they ever heard.  The   installation   of  water and  sewerage system for Ladner is badly needed and it is hoped that some  iejasible proposition   can   be made^  With a company  wbo undertakes  such matters.      We do, not believe  the people of Delta have had ths?  late proposition  put to. them, in a  broad  enough light, and think it  would be a good idea to call another meeting, giving time enough  for a_i toknow wben it will be held.  In that way a large number would  would attend and an. expression of  Ol opinion obtained.  work in connection with the selection of seed graiti. About 8pp  specially prepared seed plots, containing one-quarter of an acre each,  have been operated according to  plans arranged by Prof, Robertson.  Those who entered the competition in 1900 wp.re directed to go into a field of wheat or. oats and select by hand the, heads of the largest and mos^vigorojus plants to furnished,, good plump seed for seed  for the quarter acre seed, plot for  '1901. In 1901 they were required  to select large heads from the most  vigorous and, productive plants of  the seed plot, to produce seed for  their stock seed plot for 1902, and  in 1902 the samQ process of selecting wa.s again repeated.  Each year one hundred of the  largest and best developed heads of  grain were selected from the stock  seed plot and sent to Psof. Robertson forr the^ yearly,, competition.  One ppjnt was given for every  grain which the ioo heads contained, and 25 points were given for  every, grain, which the grain in  these 109 heads weighed. It has  been gratifying to ;the promoters of  this scheme for the improvement of  seed grain to. note the, systematic  _nd;. .business like methods... of those  Wb<?,.baye undertaken the,, work of  managing the^e stock seed plots.

Well Within  the Limit Allowed,  The genuineness and purity of  Canadian creamery butter have  sever, we believe, been called in  question. In view, however, of  tihe fact that quite recently a new  enactment has been made in England (where a large quantity of  Qana.dian butter is sold and eonsum  ejcH, fixing the limit for the water  content ot the butters to be accounted legally genuine^ at 16 per cent.,  it. has b^ea thought desirable to as-  cejjtain the percentage of moisture  in a number of samples taken at  creameries throughout the dominion  from butters as ready for the final  1 export package. The passage of  this act was occasioned by the presence^ oa, »>h^ English market of certain butters, not Canadian, which  had been made under conditions  (churning apd washing at bigh  temperatures, salting with hot  brine, &c.) resulting in the incorporation of an amount of water frequently far in excess; of, the limit  her^ stated..  To obtain these, sample, ofe Canadian butters, the following instructions were pre\>are4, by J. A. Rud-  dkk, chief of the dairy division, and  Ifrank T.. Shutt, chemist "dominion  experimental farm, and forwarded  tp creameries in various parts of  the dominion:  "Fill a small (half-pint or one  ^int) clean, dry "gem" jar with a  sample, of the butter alter being  -forked and as it is ready for the  ijnal package. Screw on the cover,  f|rst seeing that the rubber washer  is ip place, and label the jar with  tbe. nauie. of the creamery and buttermaker, and the date of churning.  Two samples taken a week apart  m«y be sent from «ach. creamery,  the first to be held until the second  ia ready, and both forwarded together.. Pack the jars with Excelsior ( or some other suitable material, in a light wooden box, and forward by express to J. A; Ruddick,.  department of Agriculture, Ottawa. Mark each package on the  ouigide--- ''Butter, fon Analysis.  Blank forms were- also, sent upon  which particulars as to the temperatures and other details of manufacture, could be entered and returned with the samples.. It was  thought that such data might possibly show the effect of temperature  QU waterr-content and explain any  abnormal results that might be obtained..  _n addition to the butters received in response to this circular,  30 samples were taken by the official referee of butter and cheese, at  Montreal, from packages, ready for  export.. The. data ofi these latter  samples would enable us, to ascertain with what degree; oj acsuraey  the percentage of moiftur. could  l» learned from mere inspection.  In all, 105 samples of Canadian  creamery butter were submitted to  analysis in the Experimental farms  labratories.  The samples as collected at the  creameries may be taken as representing the butter as packed for export; those collected at Montreal,  butters already on their way to the  English market.  To avoid errors from possible  lack of uniformity throughout the  mass; the whole sample received  was melted at a low temperature  till the butter assumed a semi-fluid  or plastic condition. It was then  thoroughly stirred until homogeneous, and a sample at once removed,  placed on the absorbent asbestos,  and weighed. From three to four  grammes were taken in each case.  The drying tubes were of glass,  ij_ inches, in diameter and 2 J. inches iu length open at both ends,  but constructed during the lower  fourth to an orifi.e of about y'i  inch. These were loosely packed  Iwith asbestos wool to a depth of, say  Yt, inch, on the top of which was  placed a further wad of asbestop.  The tubes with their asbestos were  dried in the steam bath during the  night previous to use—about 15  hours.  The cooled tube was weighed  directly from the desiccator, the  upper wad of asbestos carefully removed with the forceps, the semifluid butter placed on the lower bed  of asbestos, and covered by "the replacement of the asbestos wad, and  the whole immediately weighed.  The drying was accomplished iu a  steam oven which had a temperature of 96 °C. to 98 °C, and  through which a current of air constantly passed. The tubes were  placed on racks in the oven and the  drying continued for a uniform period-of 20 hours. i>By dirert experi  ment it was found that under these  conditions all the moisture iu tht  butter was evaporated and that  there was no increase in weight due  to oxidation of the fat..  Oi the 10,5 samples analysed, 6  were from creameries iu Prince Edward Island, 2: from New Brunswick, 15 from Quebec, 26 from Ontario, 26 from the North-west Tar-  ritories, and 30 from warehouses at  Montreal. With one or two exceptions, these butters were all manufactured in July or August.  All were in excellent condition  and of first-.l.ass quality when received. The analysis was made  immediately on arrival ofthe butter  at the laboratory.  The fact that of 105 samples only  two showed more than 15 per cent,  water, that only one exceeds 16 per  cent.., this butter was churned above  60 ° F- and that the, washing temperature was 64°F., unusually  high temperatures in Canadian  creamery practice, and that nine-  two fall below 14 per cent., is fairly  conclusive evidence that Canadian  creamery butter is well within the  limit allowed by the English law.  Indeed, Canadian creamery butter  would appear to be drier than much  of the butter made in Europe and  which finds its way to the English  market. This latter statement receives corroboration from a comparison ofthe averages ob'ained taken  from the recent report of the Departmental Committee on Butter  Regulations, England, 1902.  The appearance of a butter as  sampled, affords, generally speaking, no criterion as to its moisture-  content. Many of those reported  as "dry" contain more than the  average amount of water; while several returned as "moist." and "very  moist," show on analysis the lowest  peicentages. It seems quite possible, under certain circumstances,  to incorporate a considerable amount  of water without making Its presence noticeable, and, on the other  hand, the physical condition of a  butter may be such that a small percentage of moisture shows in  "beads" and "tears"'dripping readily from the trier.  Canada's export trade in creamery butter to England has increased  _ery rapidly ci recent years.   Thus  in 1895 it was valued at $697,476,  last year (1902) it was valued at  $5,660,541. Nor are we to suppose  that our present export in butter,  large as it is, marks the extent to  which this trade can be developed.  England cau consume more of our  butter, and Canada cau increase her  production. There exists in the  Dominion of Canada the very best  conditions for the making of first-  class butter. In climate, soil, fodders and water we have natural factors unsurpassed for dairying in  any other country; in skilled workmen, well eqiupped creameries and  excellent cold storage facilities we  have the acquired factors conductive to a manufactured article of the  first quality. By these means and  an honest endeavor to produce and  sell nothing but the best, Canada  has won an enviable reputation in  the English market for her butter  —a reputation she will be jealous  to "uard.

A  party of young men determined to  reform him, and one day they read  to him an imaginary paragraph  from a paper relating to a terrible  accident in which , an inebriate in  blowing out a candle was killed ,by  the flame igniting the alcoholic  fumes of his breath. James pricked  up his ears at this and requested  that the paragraph might be read  to him again, which was done to  the evident horror of the poor man,  who immediately wont in search of  a bible.  Returning with this, he expressed  a desire to take a solemn oath upon  il, bemoaned the fact that he had  been a sorry tippler and was bringing himself to ruin and then swore  that never again so long as he lived  would he attempt to blow out a  candle.
