We bear that the band boys are  making great preparations fcr some  improvement work the coming winter. During the last fow weeks  they have ordered three new instruments which will add to the appearance ofthe band as well as improve  the tone. A first class tiiple silver  plated trombone has been sent for  from tbe great Resson firm who  make the best instruments on the  market. This will be used by W.  H. Smith, who also=&ent for a slide  trombone for himself and will learn  to play. A picolohas been ordered  for Fred Southerby and a new cornet has teen Jsecured for Mr. Williamson. Three new men have  been enlisted in the ranks and are  making good progress with their  respective instruments. Such rules  and by-laws have been adopted  which will ensure two good practices a week during the winter  months, and by next spring it is  hoped for them to make a reputation for themselves. Considering  the short time the band has been in  existence their progress has been  wonderful arad the people of Delta  appreciate their ability and hope  that every mpve will tend towards  beftw efficiency-.

Launched.  The "Mary Ann II" was successfully launched in the Fraser river  this week at the end of Delta street.  She is a fine craft, up-to-date model  and all home made, being the prop  erty of Dr. Woodley. It is not  the intention to put her on the river  route in opposition to the steamer  Transfer, but will be used to skirt  along the river front in search of  ^mallards,, etc.  Carries    Away    Another  Delta Resident.  "Mrs. Colhusoii is dead," was  the word passed around Ladner  Tuesday evening, and the news  came as a great surprise to everyone, for it was only a few days ago  that she was around town, although  having only recovered from a severe  illness. Her death took place at  St. Joseph's hospital, Victoria on  Monday evening after undergoing  an operation on Friday last. Word  received from the hospital says that  Monday she was bright and cheerful, being in the best of spirits until  about four o'clock in the afternoon,  when an unfavorable change came*  over her and she gradually grew  weaker, everything possible being-  done to save her life, but without  avail and she passed away at 9:^ 5  o'clock.  The deceased had lived in Ladner  the past four years and was closely  identified with the work in connection with the Methodist church and  W. C. T. U. in both of which she  was an earnest,, and conscientous  member.  The bereaved husband and rela-  tivesr-have the sympathy of their  many -friends in ,the Delta in their  hour of trouble.  Mr. Collinson received word  Monday evening of his wife's serious  illness and left on Tuesday morning for Victoria only to learn of her  death on his journey.  The body was brought to Ladner  on Thursday's boat, being met  by friends and conveyed to the  Methodist church from whence the  funeral took place yesterday afternoon to the Boundary Bay cemetery,  the Rev. A. N. Miller and  the Rev. E. Manuel of Eburne, an  old friend of the deceased officiating.  A large number of friends and acquaintances attended the last sad  rites.  The owners of four duires, one at  Steveston and three on Lulu,  Island, have been refused the usual  certificates under provisions of the  Contagious Diseases [Animal] Act,  owing to "dirty byres."  The  Salmon  Pack.  Many rumors have been circulated  regarding the pack of salmon on  the Fraser but the officials of the  Canners' Association say the accurate pack is not even yet determined. Representatives of the association met on Tuesday to confer  With delegates from the fishermen's  Union, Messrs. Holcrow. Machie.  Durham and S. Nakashima, the  latter representing the Japanese.  The canners submitted the following statement:  Total pack, including Fraser  river and Sound catight fish, 282,-  630; less Sound caught fish, 30,202;  net pack of Fraser river fish, 252,  418. On this an offer of 16 1-2  cents per fish was made, .but the  fishermen made a request for the  privilege of checking over some of  the canneries which was granted,  which further postpones the giving  out of an authenticated statement.  Mayor Keary of Westminster has  received word from the government  that the money for tbe extension  of the Westminster-L-iduer road  would not be forthcoming until the  work was completed.  Ottawa despatches say that it is  mentioned in officials circles that  Thanksgiving Day will likely be  held on Thursday, October 23rd.  W J.

John Burns,the 17 year old lad  from Seattle, who was given six  years in the penitentiary for boat  and net stealing, may have his case  re-tried, for the lads relatives have  engaged Mr. Bowser, K. C, who  has applied for a new trial on the  grounds: r. Thai Capt. Pittendrigh,  S. M, had no jurisdiction'; 2. That  the trial was hurried, the defence  not being given sufficent time to  prepare its case; 3. That the warrant was faulty, reading "common  gaol" instead of penitentiary.  Robert Matheson of Victoria arrived     yesterday  for a    few days  business visit.  Mr. and Mrs. John McNab of  Westminster are the guests of Mrs.  McNeely.

'Ladner celebrated Laoor: Day in  royal style. AlLthe business houses  were.closed and it was a universal  holiday among the inhabitants.  'The main feature of the day here  was the arrival of .the excursions  from Westminster and Vancouver  under the auspices ef the Ancient  Order iTJnited Workmen lodges of  those places. About ten o'clock  the steamer Transfer tairrived with  about 150 aboard of vwhich a great  number were conveyed to the agricultural grounds by rigs in waiting  by the local lodge. Along after t(  o'clock the steamer Britannia hove  in sight with the Vancouver contingent which con prised between 250  and 3<io people. The excursionists  all ashore everyone started for the  agricultural grounds where arrangements had been made for tbe picnic  and celebration.  The Ladner Cornet Band metth«  boats on their arrival aud afterwards played several selections on  the grounds. With the Vancouver  order was Evenson's orchestra,  which played in the hall where the  iovers of the terpsichorean art enjoyed tliemselves.  During the after-noon , a large  number of children!* graces were  run, prizes being donated by Ladner, Vancouver and Westminster  people to the lodges for this purpose. Besides these races, jumping,  tug-of-war, putting the shot, etc„  was indulged in bytheolder people.  A baseball match was arranged between Vancouver-Westminster vs.  Ladner in which was some goojj  playing and considerable ,#por$.  The game ended in„favor of Ladntfi  four to two. A football match  was also played between the two  cities against Ladner, ,;but the visitors were again defeated.  About six o'clock .the visitor^  and friends started for the landing  to take their respective boats for  home. The Britannia left shortly  after six and the Transfer an hour  later. The Britannia had a pleasant trip around from Vancouver no  rough weather being encountered.  From what The News heard and  can learn all were well pleased with  their visit and spoke in the highest  terms of the preparations .made by  local A.O.U.. W;4odge jand their  friends.and should anotherjoppor-  itunity occur we may expect to have  them enjoy their outing in the Delta.  The collectors of voters for th*  several provincial districts give  notice in the official Gazette of this  week that courts of revision of the  provincial lists will be held 0/1  Monday, the 3rd November.  The" municipal council meets next  Saturday afternoon. THE DELTA NEW 3, SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 6, 1902.  THE   DELTA   NEWS  BY  RIC.   A.   ERASER.  Siib3crii>tio?i l-rice, per year in advance  SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER  6,   1902.  The necessity of shade trees at  the agricultural grounds on Monday  was quite apparent, aud if it was a  hot day it would have been impossible for the visitors to have remained on the ground. It is the only  public land available for meetings,  picnics or open air gatherings and  it should be fixed up in better shape  for such festivities. The buildings,  grounds and fences are first class,  but people wishing to watch anything going on have to endure the  Hot sun. A few good shade trees  judiciously arranged would make a  'vast improvement, beautifying the  place and allowing people to enjoy  their visit, and in a short time it  would become a favorite resort.  The expense in connection with  putting iu trees would be very  small and The  News hopes the  agricultural society and council will  1.       ' 1     1  attend to the matter at an early date.  The monster petition to be presented to the provincial legislature  by the Lord's Day Alliance asks  jhat athletic games and excursions.  on Sunday be prohibits, and that  penalties be provided for. the breach  of such laws. They also ask the  government to enforce the Sunday  Closing Liquor law uniformly  throughout the province.  The   visitors    to    Ladner    last  Monday were greatly pleased with  their visit and were amazed at the  ■ ii   . • v. ■  terms in this section, never realizing  r   • ■.  what the Delta was like.    All went  1  away convinced  that  the Delta is  jl       •   i- .  v ■  the ideal farming section of British  Columbia.  A Pension Yarn.  ...  Mr. Ware, the United States  Commissioner of Pensions, received  a letter from a man in Illionis a few  days ago which read:  "I am now getting a pension of  $30 a month. Recently the Lord  has prospered me, and I do not  think I should get so much money.  I gave my services to the country,  and Ithink I should have some  pension, of course, and 1 think £30  a month is too much. Is there any  way I can have my pension reduced  or suspended while I enjoy the  prosperity that is mine at present?"  This is the only request for a  reduction of pension ever received  by the Bureau. It was referred to  the pension examiner in the district  where the man lived, who reported  as follows:  "I have the honor to inform you  that the person who applied for a  reduction in his pern ion is now in  the insane asylum at this place, and  has been for some time."  —New York Tribune.

It will be remembered that  a week before the canneries were  closed the official pack was given  as 272,000 cases, minus 40,000 cases  bought from the traps. It was estimated that not more than 3,00c  cases could be put up in the six  days before the closing of the canneries. In other words, it was  officially stated that the approximate pack would be 235,000 cases.  It now obtains that the canneries  erred in telephoning their pack.

In order to obtain a knowledge of  -the manner in which gravel, broken  .•tone or other road metal should be  placed on the roadway, it is evidently necessary to consider the  objects to be attained by the use oi  ■ surface covering. Experience  teaches us that these are:—  1 To prevent water entering and  softening tho natural soil beneath.  2 To present a hard and durable  wearing, sufficiently smooth to make  gravel and the transportation of  heavy loads easy and agreeable.  According to the first of these objects, the covering must be of such  a texture as to be as far as possible  Jmpenetrabla to water, and of such  a shape as to shed the water to the  side gutters or ditches. According  to the second, the road covering  must partake of the character of a  floor. In summer and in dry  weather a road made ofthe natural  soil, if not sand, is a satisfactory  driveway for moderate traffic. It  is to make a good wet weather road  that metal is usually applied. Ii  jthn work done on the road is not  .successful in producing this, the  efforts have either been inadequate  or misapplied.  The customary way of putting  gravel and broken stone on the  ripad is to merely drop the Vnetal  from the waggon, leaving it, as it  falls, in a continuation of irregular  heaps, to he levelled and consolidated by traffic. This metal is  usually plficed on the road in June.  Vehicles at once turn away from it  and find a mora serviceable ' a dirt  drive along the side of the road or  in the gutters. Traffic continues  to follow the dirt roadway untill  jsucl a tiine, late in the fall, when it  Las become rutted and muddy. Not  untill forced to do so by the impassible condition of the dirt track, do  vehicles turn to the metalled portion.  If this dirt track is between the  n.etal and the ditch, the ruts and  holes will interfere with surface  .drainage; will prevent the water  reaching the ditch quickly from the  crown; will be receptacles for a  K:ige amount of water. In soaking  away, fhis water will pass under  tue gravelled portion and assist in  softening the natural subsoil, which,  in a well made road, must be sufficiently dry aud firm to support the  weight of traffic. The gravel oi  stone lying loosely on the road has  permitted water to pass through it  to the natural soil below, as through  a sive. The first effect of wheels  passing oyer it is to create ruts in  the metal itself. These ruts in  turn become icceptacles to hold  water, tbe. gravel in the ruts is  quickly forcedaside aud downward,  and the wheels sink as far as the  mud will permit them. Winter  may freeze the ground and afford a  firm means of travel during the  frosty season, but when the weather  breaks up in the spring, the roadway, upheaved and honey-combed  by the ice which formed in and below it, is many times worse than in  the fall.  It is evident ttjat to drop grave!  and especially broken stone, loosely  pn, the road is j«ery fr.r from being  an economical system of roadrrtak  ing. The summer succeeding the  application, the road, after the ruts  are worn down, may become a good  driveway; yet the gravel or broken  stone has been so churned and mixed with dirt that its life and durability have been largely wasted before it becomes sufficiently compact  to answer the purpose for which it  was intended.  A great deal, by very simple  means, can be done towards getting  better results from the road covering. The aietal when first placed  on the road could be nicely spread  with a rounded surface, as it is intended to lie when consolidated.  The metal, particularly if gravel,  will, during tlie summer, consolidate much better than if left in a  high heap. fu the fall it will be  harder, and, not presenting so formidable an obstacle to travel as a  series of irregular mounds through  which the horses must wade; '.-chicles will turn from the temporary  dirt tracks earlier in the season, before the sn!. s>il has become very  soft. I f at tl. is pericd a man is sent  along tlie road with a rake to fill up  the wheel tiacks as they appear in  the loose gravel or broken stone,  traffic will, in a short time, very effectually consolidate the road. Tlie  expense of a man in raking tlie  metal into the ruts and keeping tin-  road properly rounded up during  the fall and spring will more than be:  saved in the future repair and re-  metalling, while a much better road  will be the result.—Bureau ol Provincial Information.  lotel  Colonial  Rates, <  Bpeciol  TrnveUe  Cor.
