The adjourned meeting of the  Mechanices' Institute Reading room  was held on Monday evening of this  week, in the Town Hall. There  were a goodly number present. W.  H. Ladner reported that the council had not seen their way clear to  make a grant as was expected.  After some discussion the meeting reached the point where a resolution was moved that the echanics'  Institute Reading room be continued and election of officers proceeded with. As this was unanimously  carried the following officers were  then appointed. Honorary president  W. H. Ladner; President, Rev. I.  W. Williamson; Secretary, W. H.  Smith; directors; J. McKenzie and  Mrs. Stainton.  A vote of thanks was then moved  for the officers ofthe past year, and  to the committee engaged in collecting funds for the coming year, after  which the meeting adjourned.  The officers held a committee  meeting next evening at which it  was decided to interview Reeve Ladner with a view to complete negotiations about a building.  The secretary was instructed to  renew periodicals and other reading  matters, also to write to the government to secure the travelling library.  LADNER AMATEURS  The following attended the spring  assize at Westminster this week.  Grand jury,- A. Pe R. Taylor, T.  Thirkle; petit jury, Geo. McClusky,  H. McCormick and Geo. Ormiston.  Miss Thompson and Miss Walker  of New Westminster are visiting jn  Ladner.   J. Ibbe.&ion of Vancouver was iu  town 'this week yjpiting his family.  Score a Success a With  Their Theatrical En-  tairiment.  Every nook and cranny ofthe  Town Hall was filled last night to  its fullest capacity, to hear the  theatrical amateurs perform the two  plays, entitled "The Rough Diamond" and "Icion Parle Francais."  The entertainment was a decided  success, both from an entertaining  and financial point of view. It  would be useless for us to rehearse  the plot and its characters so soon  after the performance as those present are still familiar with them,  while those who failed to take advantage ofthe evening's amusement  have undoubtedly missed a treat.  We are sure young and old enjoyed  the performance, judging by the  generous and hearty cheering  throughout the evening. The  young amateurs are a credit to Ladner, and the various dramatic scenes  were done full justice by the young  artists. Some of the characters were  particularly good, while every person in the cast did excellent work,  and the general verdict is that "The  Rough Diamond" and "Ici on Parle  Francais" were well worth listening  to, and would do credit to more experienced actresses and actors.  A social dance was taken part in  to wind up theevening's amusement.  The proceeds are to be used in  erecting a tower in which to place  the handsome bell purchased from  Marshall Smith. The amount collected at the door, and from the sale  of tickets amounted to $53.30. Great  praise must be given to the' energy  and vigilance displayed by the  school girls in the sale of tickets.  Later in the evening those who  took part in the two plays accepted  the invitation of Mrs. D. McKee to  her house where all did justice to a  sumptuous dejeuner.  We understand that if successful  arrangements can be made the]pla3's  will be produced for the amusement  of the people at Steveston at some  date ia the near future.  The Contractors For The  Road  Will Put it in  Good Condition.  Reeve W. H. Ladner returned  from Victoria Thursday, whither  he had gone in connection with the  dyking trouble. It appears that  the contractors of the new road now  being built along the river front  from Ladner up to New Westminster, have been permitted to take  away tbe dredge with which the  road embankment and dyke for the  two are to be combined—was being  thrown up. In cutting its way out,  the gap thus made was not properly  filled, arid unless soon attended to  is thought to be quite a menace to  the district, as the rising waters  would through it, in but a few weeks  time, overwhelm the farms and fields  of the Delta. Messrs. Pike & Coul-  tard, the contractors were some time  ago notified about the weakened  condition iu which the dyke was  left, but in order to hurry up the  repairs the matter is again being  brought to the attention of the department, who have given instructions to Road Superintendent Sprott  to notify the contractors to secure  the cut out at once, otherwise for  the road superintendent to do the  work and deduct from the next payment to contractors.  The municipal council received  word from the contractors Thursday  evening that men were at work on  the cut out and would put it in first  class condition and were willing to  repair it satisfactory to the council  who have sent a man up to inspect  the work and report at the council  meeting.  The Grim Reaper.  A cablegram received at Westminster Monday, announces the  death at Parkgate, Chester, Eng. the  Hon. Henry Holbrook, for many  years a resident of New Westminster. Deceased, who was 84 years  of age, came to Victoria while a  young man, subsequently purchasing property here, where he engaged in the wholesale business, to  which was added shipping and salmon canning. He was a member  of the old legislative assembly, 1864  to 1871, and after confederation was  president of the council and minister of lands and works in the Mc-  Creight government till it resigned.  Later he was for several terms mayor of Westminster. He returned to  England in 1881, leaving his affairs  in the hands of ex-Mayor Thos.  Ovens.  Albert McClusky Dead.  The death occurred at the family  home at Crescent Island on Thursday morning, of Albert Raymond,  the seventeen year old son of Mr.  and Mrs. George McClusky. The  deceased had been ailing for some  time and his death was caused by  epilepsy.  Mr. McClusky who was attending the assize at Westminster was  summoned home on Wednesday.  The family have the sympathy of  the entire community in their bereavement. The funeral leaves Crescent Island 12 o'clock today for  Boundary Bay cemetery. Rev. I.  W. Williamson performing the last  sad rites.  MUNICIPAL COUNCIL  A regular meeting of the council  was held in the council chambers on  Saturday, May roth, all the members being present.  After the minutes of the last meeting had been read  and  confirmed  communications were read  and dis  posed off as follow:  From Howay & Reid re mortgage  received and filed.  From E. Hilman re his contract  on Tasker road, received and his  account ordered paid.  From the directors of the Mechanics' Institute Reading Room, asking for a grant of $100 for 1902,  laid over for consideration.  From Messrs. Pyke & Coulthard  contractors on river road, received  and the whole whole council appointed a committee to examine  work and report at next meeting.  A petition was read from taxpayers under the 1892 Dyking and  Drainage Scheme, asking to have  the drainage ditch under said  scheme cleaned out.  Moved by Councilor Burr, seconded by Councilor McCallam that  the petition be received and that  Councilor Robertson and II. D.  Benson be instructed to make an  estimate of the cost of the work asked for.  The Delta Dyking and Drainage  By-Law No. 5, 1895 scheme, passed the first reading.  On motion the following accounts  were passsd for pa.'" wit: George  McClosky, grading McDonald road  $100; Columbian Co., advertising,  $6.15; H. N. Rich, telephone account, $3.36; R. H. Gillespie, hauling lumber, $55; Estate Thos. McNeely, sundries, $38.85; J. Simpson  hauling lumber trunk road, $42.75;  Geo. Ormiston, salary, $60; Jim,  grading G.

The council then adjourned till  Saturday, May 17th, at 2 p.m.  Cloverdale Notes.  Thomas Shannon, who had been  at Victoria in connection with the  Dairymen's Association last week  has returned home.  The Oddfellows Lodge is making  grand preparations for their annual 1  dance, which will be held here on  Friday evening, the 16th inst. The  annual dance of this lodge is one of  the events of the season and a most  enjoyable time is always given.  The home of Mr. and Mrs. James  Harris was gladdened on May 3rd.  by the arrival of a son.  J. H. Huggard and family have  purchased a farm from A. Appell.  The family arrived from Minnesota  last week.  Miss Jessie Murphy who has been  on a visit to friends in Evenson,  Wash., for several weeks arrived  home last week.  A reception was given at the home  of E. m. Carncross, on Wednesday  evening to welcome the Rev. Mr.  McPherson, who recently arrived  from the east to take charge of the  Presbyterian church here*; A very  pleasant evening was had by those  who were in attendance. Games,  speeches and a sumptuous repast  prepared by the ladies was heartily  indulged in by all.  The Old Story, No Progress in the House  The Past Week.  There has been practically no  progress in the proposed legislation  during the past week. Mr. McBride's motion condemnling the con-  duct of the government in respect  to the foreshore rights of the prov*  ince was negatived on a division of  18 to 16. The debate on the motion that the speaker do now leave  the chair, to go into committee of  supply was" concluded on Monday  last, by the member for Nelson.  moving the previous question, and,  although this practice is condemned  by both May and Bourinot, the  speaker held the motion to be in  order, and closed off debate. The  government succeeded in getting  one item through committee, and  that only on the promise that after  that item was passed, the house  would adjourn..  The government have organized  their forces to shut off debate and to  Mr. Houston lias been assigned the  duty of applying the gag. His first  attempt proved a failure, Mr. Oliver  being too quick for him, and the  whole session was wasted in discussing as to whether the member for  Nelson or the member for Delta  should be allowed to speak first"  The government have been in a  position of great difficulty during  the past week, Mr. Martin flatly  refusing to support the proposed  railway legislation in its present  shape, and the government wildly  endeavoring to get the consent of  the various promoters to so amend  the contracts as to secure the aid of  Mr. Martin assisting in their passage.  It is more than probable that some  kind of compromise will be arrived  at which will enable the government  to secure the passage of these bills.  The leader of the opposition, at  the opening of tbe House Thursday,  announced that the position of the  opposition was not one of obstruction, but rather one of protection of  the people. Mr. McBride further  announced that if the leader of the  government would give proper as*  suranee that the reserve on the fore*  shore would be replaced, and that  the premier would submit his railway policy to the people, the opposition would assist in passing necessary estimates and the enactment of  urgent legislation before the house  dissolves. This announcement by  the leader of the opposition met  with no response from the govern,  nient.  W. C. Macdougol manager of the  company who has offered to build  the Coast-Kooteny Railway on very  favorable times and to commence  constructions within sixty days, will  arrive here Thursday.  Provincial Grand Master Hogg,  of the I. O. O. F. will arrive this  evening on a visit to Delta Lodge  No. 21. After business is over  the members will entertain  a few of their friends to an evening's  amusement in the lodge room, The  social pastimes of this well known  order bespeak for the visitors an  excellent time.

Looking over tbe provincial estimates we find that the government  has seen fit to gram certain amounts  of money to the larger provincial  exhibitions, but nothing has been  said of the smaller agricultural  shows held throughout tlie country  —such as the one at Ladner. Some  of the members in the house have  taken decided objection to this treatment upon very good grounds. We  believe the small ones should be  treated in proportion to the larger  ones. We think that everyone who  is interested in the annual exhibitions will agree with The NEWS  upon this matter. There are many  in the Delta who always bring some  article to the fall show here, but  'who, for some reason best known to  themselves, do not feel like exhibiting in New Westminster. Such  people shouid be encouraged in  every possible way. The government should join with the municipal council and give a grant in proportion to the council. It would  encourage the taking of more pride  in exhibiting. In doing this the  farmers' stock would improve, the  ladies and children would come forward with some article that would  do them credit and the community  in general. It would give visitors a  good impression of our district, and  •by making the smaller fall shows a  'success it would guarantee the provincial shows a truly greater success.  DOG POISONING.  The malicious creature, the dog  poisoner, has been running rampart  in our village for over a week. So  far about seven dogs have been the  victims of this parasites work, some  dieing and others being found in  time to administer an emetic which  saved the clogs lives. The poison  has been distributed along the main  thoroughfare and is very dangerous  not only to canines, but the numerous small children that daily  play along the street may likely  come in contact with the deadly  drug. The authorities should thoroughly investigate this matter as it  is a serious criminal offence.  The wretched cur, whoever he  may be, if found should be tarred  nnd feathered, then rail ridden  across the Fraser river between two  tow boats, and if incidentally he  should go out with the tide no one  would feel sorry. We believe certain parties have been spotted out,  and if further proof comes to hand  resource will be had to a court of  justice. However in the meantime  there are several people praying that  the local "Csolgosz" will accidentally take a dose of his own medicine.  Fiom information received The  News- learns that the portion of the  dyke which was used for an outlet  for the dredge to get into the river,  has'been lett in a rather unsafe condition. With the water iu the river I  'coming up, the weak spots iu the  dyke should receive the utmost ere I  and attention.  All citizens feel a certain amount  of relief in the fact that the' 'Mech^  anics' Institute Reading Room will  be continued. Officers have been  appointed and they are such as to  insure the success ofthe institution.  We trust that every one will give  them their true and loyal support.  Not Thankful.  For neaily thirty years C. E.  Graham has been publisher of the  Waseca Radical. He has just sold  out.    His valedictory is as follows:  It is usual for the editor, in passing, to thank the public for past  favors. He thanks nobody. What  we have had we have earned—twice  over. We have turned grindstones  to grind more axes and for less pay  and fewer thanks than any other  man living--or dead.  For twenty-eight or twenty-nine  years we have been at the crank,  and we know what we are talking  about.    We do not say, like Vander-  bilt,   "the  public be  d d,"   but  we say—nothing. There is nothing  to say, certainly nothing to thank  anybody for.  If there be any position where one  does more work for less pay, turning grindstones for more jobs, than  the country editor, and for fewer  thanks and less money, we say  "God pity him," for he needs pity.  The position as editor of a country  newspaper is a most treacherous,  difficult, hard-to-please, easiest to  offend, and surest to receive kicks,  cuffs, and advice, we have ever  heard of, and we know there is none  worse—there can not be.  Vou speak well of a man for 999  times and forget or are unable from  cause to speak the thousandth time,  and he is your enemy for life and  will always afterwards have his  work done at the "other place." If  his wife or daughter goes to "Jim-  town" for a visit, leaving on the  night train and returning in the  same manner, and you fail to mention the fact, though you know  nothing about it and can know  nothing about it unless told, yo'u  are a deep, dark villian with designs  against him and working for his  rival or his enemy, whose wife you  did speak of as going on a visit because he came to your office and  told you all about it and asked you  to mention it in your paper—in two  places, and be ' 'very careful not to  get the two items in the same column or on the same page."  Fishermen Meet.  The Vancouver lodge of the British Columbia Fishermen's Union  met on last Saturday night in Vancouver. A large number of the  members were present the meeting  being one of the preliminary ones  of the year.  It is understood that the fishermen informally discussed the amalgamation of all the interests of the  coast canneries, and the general  opinion was that the combination  would be of benefit to the men who  fish. Other meetings of various  lodges ofthe union will be held at  an early date, and the fishermen  will draft a committee to meet those  at its head for the purpose of securing a mutual understanding regarding fishing operations during the  coming season.

The value ofthe separator is now  so well appreciated, that any argument for its use would appear to be  superfluous. The following will,  however, be of interest:—  At a trial, made at a Dairy School  some years since, the averages of 43  experiments with a given quantity  of milk; were 100 lbs. of butter from  the seprator, as compared with 59  lbs. of butter from milk set in open  pans for 24 hours, 66 lbs. of butter  when it was set for 36 hours, 73 lbs.  of butter when set for 42 hours, and  76 lbs. when set for 54 hours.  It may be taken that the use of  the separator gives 25 per cent, more  cream than any system of skimming.  This means a saving of about $20  per annum per cow.  In separating milk, the temperature should not be below 70 ° F.; the  best temperature is between 80 °  and 90 ° F. The milk should not  he cooled before separating, as there  is an advantage in running the milk  through as soon as possible after it  is drawn, and before it has cooled.  The cream should contain about  30 per cent of fat, as churning is  easier with this than with very thick  cream, and the loss in the buttermilk is very small.  The separator should not be run  at less speed than that recommended  by the maker; if run too slow there  will be a loss of cream, some of  which will be run off with the skim  milk.  Deep setting, on the Cooley system, should be done, by setting the  trait in ioe water. The milk should  be set immediately after being drawn  and should be left untouched For 15  hours; there is no gain in setting  for longer than this when ice is used.  The cream should not be skimmed  off, but the skim milk should be  drawn from under the cream by  means of a syphon carried from the  bottom of the pan, as the milk for  an inch or two immediately under  the cream contains a good percentage of fat, and this milk should not  be drawn off with the skim milk.  By skimming from the surface, this  inch or two of rich milk would be  left with the skim milk, and the fat  in it would thereby be lost.  Cream obtained on the deep-setting system should not be churned  at a low temperature, or the butter  will not come. The cream churned  at 60 ° F. will come in about thirty  minutes, whereas the same cream if  churned at 50 ° F. may take hours  to come.  Milk set for too long a time in  pans produces leathery cream.  It is said that it pays better to  give the butter-milk to poultry than  to pigs, as it increases egg production, and is good for fattening.  Water is not required when buttermilk is used for fowls.  Butter-rnilk is valuable for some  kinds of kidney and liver disease,  and also for rheumatism; it also  keeps the skin clear and heathy.  In next issue will be an article on  *' Butter, its Making and Treatment."    Cannery Combine.  The last obstacles in the way of  the salmon combine, under the auspices of the syndicate organized by  Mr. Henry Doyle and incorporated  under the laws of New Jersey, has  been removed, and the union of the  canneries is an accomplished fact.  The first directors have been appointed, these being Messrs. Campbell Sweeney, ofthe Bank of Montreal, Vancouver; Geo. Murray,  Canadian Bank of Commerce; Alex,  Ewen, of New Westminster; Henry  Doyle and Geo. I. Wiispn.  In sizing up the advertising situation a successful business man says:  "Be systematic, have an ad. every  few weeks, make the ads. short, advertise one thing at a time, make  the display as effective as possible,  use appropriate and apt phrases,  make it Intelligent and reasonable."  These are the things which give to  advertising a great deal of value.—  Ad. Art.   At a meeting of the Women's Editorial Association in Topeka, Kan.,  one of the toasts was: "Woman—  without her, man is a brute." The  Salina, Kan., Sun reported tlie toast  thus: "Woman—without her man,  is a brute."  Dr. G. F. Bodington, F. R. C. S.,  M. R. C.
