C, SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 1902.  $1.00 a year.  m gasagg   I*  Not in Favor of the Canadian Northern Railway Scheme.  On Saturday evening last a public  meeting was held in the town hall  for the purpose of discussing railway  and dredging matters. W. H. Ladner presided while B. S. McDonald  acted as secretary. John Oliver M.  P. P. was the principal speaker.  He was opposed to the building of  the Canadian Northern railway, as  he believed there was no immediate  necessity for the road at present, as  it passed through a part of the province devoid of population with the  exception of a small settlement at  Quesnel. It was only a scheme to  elect a member for Victoria. Enti r-  ely too large a bonus, besides bo, ooo  ■acres of land was to be given to the  company. This land was not open  to settlers according to the laws -of  the province, and the contract was  much more favorable to the railway  than to settlers, as the only ones outside the railway who could acquire  a clear deed of property were those  having lnineral'claiins. It was simply another such scheme as the E&  N deal. The company could hold  the lands free from taxation as long  • as they pleased, moreover the company's 'railway and branches were  'to be freefrom taxation for ten years,  i after which a charge of two per cent.  ■ of the grc>ss<earuings ofthe road was  to be paid.   Iff mot sufficient land in  • the belt along the railway the company 'eouid go outside and take up  land. As a rule railway companies  did. not teke up valueless lands when  choosing- Here he pointed out how  the C. P. R. shad taken the most  valuable coal lands to be found i n  Southeast Kootenay. ,  The railway could not be pay  'Unless it went -.through a settled  < country, or oneithat was well timbered. No revenue from that part,  ■•would increase taxation of the rest  fof the province to keep up the government of the country. At present  the government was going behind  at the rate of half a million dollars  per annum and it seemed out of all  reason to give any company millions  of dollars without the company put-  ing in a dollar of their own money  into the road; and as there was  nothing in the agreement of contract to safe guard the interests of  the people, he did not think it for  the benefit of the province that this  deal should go through. He under1-  stood that coupled with the Canadian Northern was the building of  the Coast-Kootenay railway, and he  was certainly not in favor of. They  should pass through the house as  entirely separate bills. The latter  was the oniy absolutely justifiable  road at present. In the former case  the company could well afford to  abandon the road the day it was  built, .they were getting.stich a large  graft from the government. It  would increase the taxes of the  province to tSie extent of <over $ioo,-  ooo a year, double that at present.  The interests of the people should  be looked after by the government  but if it was impossible to do this a  new government should be .appointed that would do their duty to the  people and the country and not to  land grabbers.  The chairman then called for the  opinion of those present, at the  same time.stating that he would be  very sorry to see the Coast-Kootenay railway bill tacked on to the  Canadian Northern. The former  road should be built first to open up  the Kootenay. He understood from  our representative that a road over  the Hope mountains was quite practicable as the grades on this road  would be no higher than over some  other roads. It was not absolutely  necessary that ore should come over  this road as there was coal in the  country on the other side of the  Hope mountains and smelters could  Ee built there. If opr cities received  ,on,ly a £v'r sJtar£ of the Kcnijsjay  trade we will have a  good market  near home.  H. N. Rich was the next speaker.  He moved " that this meeting is in  favor of the Canadian Northern  railway." Speaking to his motion,  to take a selfish view ol the matter,  he did not see why the people of  this district should not have a slice  of the half million dolls,rs the government was going beh'nd, and he  thought that it would make a market for our products during construction of the road through the Yellowhead Pass to Bute Inlet. As it  would be the means of building up  the coast cities, possibly new ones,  a good market would still be obtainable. Especially would this be the  case if it built up the city oi Victoria as about seventy per cent of  Delta's products went to that city at  present.  T. E. Ladner did not quite agree  with the last speaker and moved an  amendment seconded by T. Thirkle  that "we request our representative  to use his influence against the construction of the Canadian Northern  railway under terms of present contract."  The amendment was carried.  T. E. Ladner moved seconded by  that "Mr. Oliver be instructed to support a bill for the  construction of the Coast-Kootenay,  provided the bill was a fair, and  honorable one, and in the interests  of the people and give a fair reniun-  ration to the contractors."  II. A. Bown moved an amendment seconded by L. Kmory, " that  Mr. Oliver use his influence in securing the construction and government control of Coast-Kootenay  road.  The amendment carried.  The question of dredging the sand  bars of the Fraser was next dealt  with. After considerable discussion  the following resolution was una ruinously passsd.  Moved 'b.y T. E. Ladner seconded  by T. W. Ker: '' Whereas we have  suffered great injustice through the  non-removal of sand bars opposite  the Landing .which has seriously interferes! with traffic. Resolved, that  we call the attention of the government to this fact and would again  urge immediate action and that copies of-the resolution be forwarded to  Auley 'Morrison M. P. to public  worksHDept- New Westminster and  to our provincial representative.  Mr.'Oliver the chairman, and secretory were tenered a vote of thanks  and tbe meeting adjourned.  No Meeting Held.  Messrs. Raynor and Drummoud  two eastern farmers.arrived in Ladner Wednesday with the intention  of holding a meeting in the interests  of the Farmer's Institute, but owing  to no notice of their proposed visit  being made by the department of  Agriculture' to the secretary here,:  it was impossible to notify the members in t-jis-vicinity after the arrival  of these gentleman, and so no meeting was held. It is too .bad that more  interest is not taken iu this matter  by the members and others iu the  Delta, as addresses delivered by experienced farmers would be very interesting and instructive. The department of Agriculture were negligent in not notifying the Institute  here and it is hoped that the next  opportunity of this kind will not be  overlooked by the farmers of the  Delta.  E. A. Bown has just opened an  assortment of hand-made single harness, which for beauty of design,  quality of material and general excellence, are hard to beat. These  are being offered at prices Mr. Bown  assures us, wiiich are at least ten  per cent, lower than usually charged  hi Vancouver and New Westminster  for machine made goods of inferior  quality. Jt will pay prospective  buyers to inspect this stock..  Married on Tuesday Last  at "Hazel Grove."   A  Quiet Wedding.  On Tuesday morning last, at the  residence of Mrs. John Kirkland,  "Hazel Grove," Delta, at seven  o'clock, Mrs. Ida. Maude Macdon-  ald, second daughter of the late  John Kirkland, became the wife of  William H. Norris of Midway, B.C.,  second son of Philip Norris, Esq.,  of White Hall, Watchet, Somerset,  England. I        I  The ceremony was performed by  the Rev. Ebeuezer Robson, an old-  time friend of the family assisted by  the Rev. E. Manuel, pastor of the  Methodist Church, Ladner.  The wedding was quiet yet a very  pretty one. Only immediate friends  of the bride were present. The  bride, who was unattended, was  given away by her brother H. J.  Kirkland, who gave her hand in  marriage. Tall, dark, aristocratic  in her bearing, she looked exceptionally handsome iu a traveling  gown of reseta green cloth trimmed  with black satin straps. The bodice was of old rose silk with white  chiffon front embossed with gold.  Over this was a very rich Batten-  burg lace collar.  The wedding breakfast was served to the relatives and the bridal  party. The table was decorated  with cream and vMinte daffodils entwined with bundle1'': of ivy from a  garlanded chandelier. At each corner the decorations were fastened  with a bunch of watered moria  cream ribbon.  The bride's gifts made a magnificent collection, as they were both  numerous and costly, showing the  high esteem in which the bride is  held by her many friends. Among  the presents was a work of art, also  a complimentary address presented  the evening before by the local W.  C. T. IT. and the Ladies Aid of the  Methodist Church, both of which  institutions she was an active member.  The bride will be greatly missed  in this community. Until last  Christinas she was was teacher of  the public school here, with which  she had been connected for some  time, and was very popular with  the pupils, when she resigned her  position the pupils showed their  appreciation of her service to them  by presenting her with a beautiful  token of their esteem and good  wishes.  The groom is a highly respected  resident of the Boundary district,  where he has large agricultural and  mining interests. It was while  teaching in that part of the province,  a few years ago, they became acquainted.  The happy couple left shortly  after the wedding buakfast for New  Westminster, to leave by the Atlantic express en route to their new  home in Midway.  Baptist Church Opening.  On Sunday evening last the people of the Baptist church dedicated  their new building to the Christian  work. Every nook and corner of  the church was filled sometime before the hour for opening. The  building is supposed to have ordinary seating capacity of about 175  people but it is estimated about 250  were present.  The pastor, Rev. I. W. Williamson preached the dedicatory sermon,  and was assisted by Rev. E. Manuel  of the local Methodist Church, who  very thoughtfully withheld his own  services to help his brother pastor  and enable his people to attend the  opening of the church. A choir of  the churches assisted.  The Rev. Mr. Williamson took  for his text: Psalm 29, 2, "Give  unto the I, ml the gh>ry due His  a very eloquent sermon on the subject of " Worship." Although the  church was quite warm, he held the  attention of his congregation for a  full half hour.  The church has been rushed to  completion by the contractors, and  although it requires some additional  interior fixtures, it is a credit to  the Baptist people as we understand  it is without debt—a fact which  makes it all the more creditable as it  is seldom churches when built are  free from an incumbrance in the  the shape of a mortgage. This is  the second church the reverend gentleman has built since he began his  labors in the province, four years  ago. It not likely the Baptist people here will be allowed to keep  such an able church builder for any  length of time, as he will be wanted  somewhere else to help advance the  the good work.  The church here has cost so far  about $600 and when finally completed will total somewhere in the  neighborhood of $1,400, but it is intended to have the amount subscribed before furthering the required work.  Thoroughbred Stock.  Last Saturday evening their arrived at Ladner per steamer Transfer a consignment of thoroughbred  animals for Delta farmers, purchased  through the Dairymen & Live  Stock Association, being imported  from select breeders in the eastern  provinces.  Thos. E. Ladner received twenty  head of yearling heifers, graded  shorthorns from milking strains and  specially selected from a dairy section. Mr. Ladner is well pleased  with the stock, and with his valuable herds at present this addition  improves it considerably.  In the consignment there was a  Clydesdale stallion and mare of first  class breeding, for H. M. Vasey of  Crescent Island.  The animals were purchased from  Messrs. Graham Bros., of Claremonti  Ont, the largest horse breeders in  Canada.  The stallion, Premier Prince  weighs 1,760 lbs., and took first  prize at Toronto, Ottawa and Buffalo  ast fall, and second at Chicago.  Cherrie Startle, 1,825 lbs., took first  prize as a 2-year-old at Toronto, and  Ottawa; and last year took first as a  3-year-old at Ottawa, Buffalo and  Toronto, with the championship at  the latter place. At the International Stock Show at Chicago, she  took first prize and silver medal as  the best mare of any breed in America  1 and the grand championship as the  best imported or American bred  horse on exhibition, and rounded off  her list of winnings by taking first  as the best in harness to cart.  Besides the stock there were a trio  of mammoth brown turkeys for H.  Burr.  The stock arrived in good condition after a 3,000 mile journey across  the continent, and L- W. Paisley,  secretary of the association, who  met the stock at New Westminster,  states that it is the finest consignment which has yet been imported.  The animals were selected under  the supervision of Mr. Hodson, dominion live stock commissioner.  Nothing can beat Dr. Arnold's  Cough Cure. Faweett's Drug Store.

Lord   in   the  I le preached  L. Guichon has been confined to  his residence at Port Guichon the  past week through illness.  The following is the motion  brought in by John Oliver M. P. P.  in the legislaure the past week:  That an order of the House be  granted for copies of all correspondence relating to the appointing of  Messrs. Gamble, Hope and Higgin-  son as commissioners, re certain dyking matters on the Lower Fraser  river, together with copies of instructions given to the said commissioners, and copies of the report (if any)  of the said commissioners, and of all  letters and papers in any way connected with the said commission of  enquiry; and also a statement in detail showing all the expenses in connection with the said commission.  Mr. Oliver said this referred to  certain dyking matters 011 the Lower  Fraser. He believed #800,000 or  $900,000 had been spent 011 dykes  for the Fraser, but for a number of  years no assessments had been made.  Some of these schemes had been  taken over by the government. Some  had not been properly laid out in  the first place, and the money had  been wastefully expended. The  result was a very large debt, and  many of these lands still uncultiva-  table. He believed the government  intended dealing with these matters,  and to have all the information he  moved for these papers.  One curioue instance arose where  about 1,800 acres were exempt from  assessment. He believed they belonged to the Dominion government  but there were certain interests in  these lands, and these interests  should be assessed.  The Chief Commissioner explained that when dyking was first undertaken, it was on rather crude data,  hence the abuses complained of.  There was a belt of land belonging  to the Dominion government, and,  needless to say it would eventually  be subject to the assessment. Mr.  Martin couldn't see why the assessment shouldn't apply at once. The  interest of the person who purchas-  from the Dominion government  could be taxed. He considered the  matter a very simple one.  Mr. McBride alluded to the urgent  necessity of some form of relief to the  Fraser settlers, although there was  a good deal of difference of opinion  in regard to the nature of that arrangement. When the bill was brought  down it must in a measure attack  the private rights of settlers, and  their opinion must be consulted,  He paid a high tribute to the character of the settlers there.  Mr. Munro emphasized the claim  of the people to be represented in  the carrying on of these great works  —works of great public importance  and often interfering with private  rights. Settlers whe lived for years  on the river and knew the changing  of its course were more apt to know  what was desired than engineers not  acquainted with these conditions.  Some works had been utterly useless  while information had frequently  been denied to the settlers. They  should have some status on the work.  He congratulated the government on  taking the matter up.  Mr. Oliver said a proposal had  been made for the government to  take over portions of the land, in lieu  of the amount due the government.  The farmers in the Maple Ridge dyking area had unanimously endorsed  a proposition by himself to deal with  these lands, and this scheme he had  submitted to the government. He  also recommended that nhe settlers  be heard and be brought before a  select committee. Each tract of land  should be dealt with separately, as  conditions were very dissimilar.  The owners had been dissatisfied for  years past. These men had been  treated with scant courtesy when  they sought information a Victoria.  The dykes in Delta were at success,  i simply because the farmers had their  way and refused to follow the advice  I of engineers.    The motion carried.. THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, APRIL 12, 1902.

CANNERY   COMBINE.  i  * After all there is much division ol  opinion among caunerymeu about  the proposed combine to Ibe known  as-the British Packers' Association.  Although it is claimed by the promoters of the scheme that already  the capital required has been over-',  siibcribed, there is no doubt that the'  organization, if formed, will meet  With very strong opposition. Negotiations for the outstanding canneries are still in progress, and it is  stated that at least 60 per cent.of the  canneries in British Columbia will be  ■included in the deal. Altogether  there are 72 canneries. The combine, state that they have options on  the major number of them.  > Notwithstanding this assurance  of the success of the deal there are  ■many who do not take so optimistic  a view of'the scheme, and who indeed look upon it suspiciously. A  prominent business man says the  real reason why there has been so  much opposition to> the combine was  that many, of the canneries believe  that the organization was to be incorporated sunder the laws of New  Jersey; that as an American organization it would eventually become  subservient to the Packers Association ori the other side, and. that once  under the baneful effects of American  management the British Colunbia  industry wculd suffer, and tl e Pu^t  Sound, Columbia river and Alaska  tanneries would thrive.

The best soils for carrying stock  are deep loams, sufficiently open to  effect drainage naturally. Thin,  light^oils are deficient in milk, bone,  and flesh-forming properties.  The following features should be  looked for in a good dairy cow:—  Forehead and muzzle broad, face  ,long and clean cut, ears fine, horns  smooth, neck tapering, fore-quarters  deep, 'the back and loins level and  wide, the legs fairly short with a good  amount of bone, the hams allowing  plenty of udder room, the frame well  .rounded, .with deep chest, the skin  should be soft and' pliable, the tail  long, and the hair fiiie. The inside  of the ear, etc., should have a yellow  tint, this indicating the buttermak-  ing quality to a considerable extent.  As a rule a cow sho.uld never be  .kept whose annual average is less  than soc-o lbs. of milk.  It is on the sire the value of the  milking strain will largely depend,  and the greatest care should be given  to his selection.  The cow is at its most profitable  period between five and eight years  of age.  As a rough rule it may be taken  that,a good dairy cow should average in milk pf,r annum six times its  live .weight.  Sfipie cows do not develop into  good milkers .until their second or  third calves, rubers with their iirst.  CowSfhouW be gently treated at  all times, but ^specially duringvtQilk-  ing, as rt portion of tlie milk is secreted .then, and rough usage ..will  shorten .the supply. A milking,stool  is not the best coaxer that can be  used.  Never .a^ow cows to be hunted or  driven in by dogs/  Durhig the winter months cows  should be kept in„a fairly warm  (about 60 F.)stable, with plenty of  light and ventilation. They should  be cuxrycomed and brushed regularly; it keeps them clean and  healthy; and they should be exercised .with judgment. On bois-  teriouSjand wet days they should  be kept in the stable, but on dry  days should be turned out for an  hour or two. Never allow them to  stand in cold wind or rain.  Peat moss makes a clean and  absorbent litter, and it is cheap.  For the production of a regular  supply of milk, it should be arranged  that the cows calve at various periods  of the year. It is easier to keep up  an eve.n supply of milk during the  winter months with cows calving at  the end of the year than with those  calving in the spring, as tbe latter  give a larger quantity of milk for a  few months, but the milk decreases  largely directly the gr#ss fails; where  as it has been conclusively proved  that cows calving in the winter give  .a third more milk wituin their milking season thaff cows calving in the  spring. Beirfdes this, the winter  calves are more easily reared, the  -Broportion of loss not being a tenth  A>{ that with spring calves.  Cows should be calved for the first  time before they are three years old;  otherwise they put on flesh and give  less milk. If heifers are calved iu  January and February they will  come on the next year in December  and January, and will then make  good winter cows.  In calving, cows should not be  hurried; directly a cow has calved,  give her a drink of two quarts of cold  water, and feed her for a few days  orj linseed gruel.  In drying off a cow it is in some  cases necessary to feed lightly, but  as a rulg, they begin to dry off twc  months before calyiug, The teat."  should be drawn pocasics(ially after  9*9<*&»9»969*9»9»9»9*&9*Q*&*Q»e»9«9&®e®»Q»9o9  ft   ' ' '    ' .-•.-■•'• Q.  9 .  i III [in Feel lm mm  Cflna - 1  JOHN SIMPSON, Proprietor. ©  Refitted throughout with New Horses, New Buggies  * Refitted throughout with New Horses, New Buggies ©  © •  * and Hacks.

The services of the sheriff have been called  iu for the purpose of removing Smith  Curtis, but the breeze blew over and  drastic measures were not taken. It  has developed during tlie sessions  that the Canadian Northern contract does not contain a clause taxing the coal lands of the company,  although in the case of the E & N  railway company, coal lauds similarly opened up are subject to taxation  Mr. Dunsmuir confessed ignorance  of this matter. People are beginning to wonder what will be the outcome of the commission. Mr. Dunsmuir's pungent remarks to Mr.  Curtis are a source of much comment.  The Redistribution Hill has passed its third reading and bscome law  In general it is very satisfactory to  the people judging frOm the little  opposition it received while passing  through the House.
