In Osgoode Hall, Toronto, be-  Chief Justice Falconbridge the following water suit was disposed off:  Saunby t. Water Commissioners.  —Judgment (C.) in action brought  at London for injunction, mandatory order and damages. Plaintiff  is the owner of lands bordering on  the River Thames and alleges that  *n 1879 and 1880 the defendants obstructed the flow of the river by erecting and maintaining a dam and  flash-boards in the river bed, which  forced back the water so that it was  prevented from flowing away from  his land, and remained at his mill  and in his tailrace, compelling the  use of steam instead of water power  at times. He claims damages for  these alleged wrongs, and an injunction to prevent a continuance  of them and a mandatory order directing the removal of the dam and  flash-boards. Held, that the defendants are in the wrong and have  not acquired a prescriptive right.  Plaintiff is entitled to damages both  as riparian proprietor and mill owner, Judgment accordingly for  plaintiff, with costs and reference as  to damages to be confined to the  six years prior to the commencement of this action. Injunction  granted. Thirty days' stay,«i-Tor-  onto Globe,  Salmon Price Not Settled  According to reports received the  Fishermen's Union have sent a letter to tha Canners' association stating that they, are not .satisfied to accept i6}4 cents per fish. The Canners' association are positive that  according to contract the count of  fish put up comes to over 252,000  fish, and the price of 16 v; cents is  the correct one. The count, how-  aver, is being again carefull checked.  The fisherman made a formal  claim for 18 cents per fish for the  peek. The canners have handed  down an ultimatum of 16^ cents,  .and there the question now stands.  The Dramatic Society.  A meeting of the Excelsior Dramatic Society was held Thursday  evening, when the plans for the  winter's amusement was discussed.  Plays have been selected and are  expected along shortly when the  members will commence rehearsals.  New members have been added in  the place of those who have left town  and the society has now a full party  again. The plays put On will no  doubt receive the encouragement of  the people of this section as they  did the past season.  The midweek meeting will be  held in the Presbyterian church on  Thursday evening, after havingbeen  discontinued for the past several  weeks.  Mr.   Borden  Visits The  Delta  and   Was  Much Pleased.  R. L. Borden, leader of the Liberal-Conservative opposition in the  House of Commons at Ottawa and  Messrs. Clarke, Powell and King  who are touring British Columbia  and holding meetings, paid Ladner  a visit on Wednesday. The party  consists of sixteen, but the others  did not take advantage of the trip  from Vancouver to Westminster by  the Fraser river, going over by  tram, where Mr. Borden held a  meeting in the evening.  The visitors were met at Vancouver by a delegation from Westminster who accompanied them to  Steveston and up the river. At  Ladner the steamer Transfer was  held for a couple of hours, the party  being received by a local delegation.  Carriages were provided and the  visitors driven by some of the farms  close by, remaining a short time at  tbe'JubiJee Farm, where they were  received by Mrs. McNeely, whose  cousin is a Jaw partner of Mr, Borden at,Halifax. Mr. Borden was  presented with a nice bunch of holly  and flowers as mementos ofthe visit.  After a short drive around the  party arrived at the steamboat landing where they again took the  steamer for the Royal City,  Tha party were highly pleased  with their visit in the Delta and  when shown the grain and products grown here were surprised at  the fertility of the Deltalands; .  Sunday's Blaze.  Last Sunday afternoon about  1:30 o'clock, fire was discovered in  the drygoods department of Marshall Smith's establishment. The  alarm was given and with a few  buckets of water the fire was soon  quenched, The origin of the fire  is supposed to be from the coals of a  pipe. The loss will amount to  about $150, curtains and hats be  ing the principal goods destroyed  C. P. McKay and A. C. Good were  on the wharf and noticed the reflection of the fire on the office window and at once 'gave the alarm.  Tbe steamer Dunsmuir and Lapwing were tiea up at wharf and immediately got up steam and their  fire apparatus ready to protect the  wharves and waterfront buildings.  If the fire had succeeded in getting a good start considerable destruction would have been the result  as quite a breeze was blowing at  the time.   B. S. McDonald has purchased  from the B. C. Land Co. about  50 acres of land behind Arthur's  property and this week was burning the peat preparatory for a large  crop.  XH£ £IVER SURVEY  Of £he Channels   From  The Mouth.  The pilots of the Vancouver and  Westminster Pilotage Authority  commenced their annual survey of  the Fraser river from its mouth to  Westminster.  Pilots Ettershanka, Patterson,  Robertson and Jones arrived in  Steveston this week with a full  equipment for the work to be carried out. Work commenced at the  mouth of the river off the Sand  Heads light station, and from there  a survey of the channels y> Westminster will be completed. The  relative position of buoys and beacons to channels will also be investigated.  Every year after high water on  the river, the pilots survey the  channels, which during high water  periods shift their position in some  cases very considerably. In consequence of that change of base it is  absolutely essential that the pilots  taking vessels into the river to load  salmon cargoes at the canneries  should know exactly the position  of the channels, and the varying  depths of water to be found in them'.  The survey work usually takes  three or four days to complete/  Cottage City Wrecked.  On Sunday night at 10:20 o'clock  the Seattle steamship Cottage City,  Capt, David Wallace, ran ashore on  Island Point, Etolin Island, which  is located in Stikine Strait, about  twenty miles south of the little  town of Fort Wraafel. She was  southbound at the time. A hundred  fifty passengers were on the Cottage  City when she struck, but not one  was injured, and all were taken  from the wrecked vessel three hours  after the accident by the steamer  Spokane, which sailed north last  Friday. The passengers were taken  to Skagway.  The position of the ship it would  appear that she struck head on.  She ran about fifty feet on the rocks  and settling herself to the incline,  she went to the bottom. At high  tide it is stated that her hurricane  deck is under water. When the  steamer struck, about a hundred  tons of salmon cargo was jettisoned  in the hope that she would float.  Special   Prizes Donated  to  The ©elfca Fair,  jRoom for More.

FEASER.  .iiabscription Price, per vear Infldvauce, $1.00  t i -    ■  SATURDAY,  SEPTEMBER   13,   19°2-  POLITICAL PARTIES;  The Liberal-Conservative party of  British Columbia meet in convention at Revelstoke this week to consider the political situation from  their point of view. The adoption of party lines is one of the  the chief questions. Every year  the Conservative and Liberal party  meet in convention at different  places and have the usual family  rows, elect leaders, promulgate a  policy, and have a general chew the  rag. So far as The News can remember, nothing has ever been accomplished by either party on account of these "annual meetings.  We believe party lines is the only  way to avoid the disagreeable state  pf affairs in this province, but cannot see how it is going to tome  about. In both parties are dissenting factions of a mixture of  Conservative aud Liberals, who will  not support or countenance leaders  arrange about fixing prices, which  rather disproves tbe assertion.  The butter frcni the Delta is tco  well know and gives such good sal-  faction tn its 'patrons in Victori;,  that we have no doubt the customers will always be able to procure it  there, notwithstanding that the ii -  laud creameries have captured the  trade.  FIRE PROTECTION".'  There is no doubt but what the  town of Ladner needs fire protection.  The narrow escape of our largest establishment business from being destroyed by fire on Sunday last, brings  forth the argument more strongly  in favor of fire protection. So far  the discussion has been hike warm  and we believe has not received the  consideration that is due it. The  committee appointed by the citizens,  communicated with our member  and the government, as requested  by the meeting, and as a result the  municipal act has been amended to  allow municipalities to pass by laws  and issue debentures to raise funds  for fire protection purposes. It is  now up to the council and people to  act.    It is necessary that protection  of some kind should be inaugurated  or anything else, and   it is almost! and Tun News hopes  that an or-  impossible to believe that either can  work together successfully on party  lines. In the provincial house the  party in power, with a doubtful  majority, is comprised of all kinds  of political parties and the opposition is the same. At present it is an  easy matter for a member of the  legislature to get a "mean on" over  some petty affair and cross over to  the other party. With the adoption of party lines this would be  done away with as members would  be duty bound to toe the mark. If il  is possible to leave a majority of the  present members at home during  the next election, there will be a  chance to get a government in power with a competent leader, be it  Conservative or Liberal. It is time  the affairs of this province were in  business hands and allow the province   to   command . respect on the  outside,   which   it   does  not do at  i.       • i  present.  ganized fire brigade and fire apparatus will be one of the first objects  put forth by the council and citizens.  DELTA BUTTER.  In an interview with the Winnipeg  Commercial, R. M. Palmer of the  British Columbia Agricultural Department, states that the cutting of  prices of butter during the spring  'was done by creameries to try and  Capture the Victoria butter trrtde,  but that the three island creameries  had practically  secured  the trade  and inferred  that  they intended to  t  keep it.    We   think   Mr.   Palmer  knows, and we know too, that the  Delta Creamery sells more butter in  i  Victoria today and  all  during  the  year than any island creamery. The  island   creameries   can   only   run  about foui or five  months  on pas-  Why will the medical men of the  coast cities persist ill sending advanced cases of phthisis to Kamloops? They must know that improvement is absolutely out of the  question and it would be far kinder  to advise these patients to stay  quietly at home instead of subjecting them ta the fatigue of traveling  when in a condition ill able to bear  the strain. Incipient cases may derive some benefit, but these far advanced ones are .hopeless, and to  send them here is crass stupidity.—  Kamloops Sentinel.  •••*>■•■»'»■•.  J. HENLEY   T  ♦*.
