The report that small pox has  broken out at Steveston has been  confirmed. An .Indian of one of  •the northern tribes is the victim,  .and as a result all the people of his  tribe have been quarantined, and  great care is being taken so that  the disease wilLnot spread.  A small pox scare was gotten up  at the Albion cannery the other day  but it turned out to be a case of  German measles.  Dr. Wilson, health officer has  been vaccinating people the last few  ,days along Westham Island.  The Market.  Westminster, Aug ist.—There  was a fairly good market in fruit  but most other lines were slack.  Quite a few potatoes were offered  ;but buyers were scarce. Early  .apples were readily cleared.

A meeting of the directors of the  Delta Agricultural Society will be  held in the town hall, on Monday  evening, August 4th at 7.30 o'clock.  There will probably be no meeting of the council on Saturday next,  /iwing.to Coronation Day, but there  will be a special meeting on Monday  afternoon, August 11th.  A shocking tragedy occured at  Seattle, when a miner named S.H.  Lake killed his brother-in-law and  Wife and committed suicide, all because his wife refused to allow him  Jo buy her an $18 hat.

Ladner returned Thursday  evening from Victoria after an absence of a .couple of .weeks.-'":Mr.  Ladner was compelled to remain in  the capital owing to illness.  The piles for the foundation for  the Presbyterian manse were driven  this week and the building will be  commenced next. week. Pattersoi:  &;Shortreed are the contractors.  Miss C.

Word has been received fropi the  Education Department at Regina,  that Miss Chrissie Smith, daughter  of Marshall Smith, has passed the  Public School Leaving examination  of the North-West Territories. This  is a higher examination than tlie  British Columbia entrance, being  midway between the, entrance < f  the Territories and the Third Class  Teachers' examination. Miss Smith  left for Ladner before the time for  examination, but the papers were  forwarded to B. S. McDonald, principal of Ladner public school, who  conducted the exan ination here.  We understand that Miss Smith, although only a girl of thirteen, passed  very creditably.  FORESHORE RIGHTS  Dominion Has No Interest in the Question.  One of the most important decisions ever given iu Chambers was  rendered in the Supreme CourtVan-  couver Tuesday morning by the  Honorable .Mr. Justice Martin.  The judgment will have a far-reaching effect and for the present at  least, not the Dominion Government  but the province of British Columbia owns the foreshore abutting on  tidal waters in this province.  The case was in the nature of an  application for an injunction. Sam  Kee, a Chinaman, claims the foreshore property on False Creek at  the head of Columbia avenue, and  has been fighting with the city officials, building fences and having  them torn down, for months.  Then the attorney-general of  Canada took a hand. The law officers applied for an injunction enjoining the defendant Sam Kee from  doing anything with the disputed  property on the ground that tin  foreshore belonged to the Dominion.  The matter came up in the court  this Tuesday. After argument,' the  learned judge dismissed the application on the grounds that the plaintiff had not shown that the Dominion had any interest in the property  in question.  The importance of this decision  may be seen at once, and will affect  many industries now in contemplation.  "The Band Played On."  The Ladner band are to be commended in their decision in preferring to play to the living rather  than the departed spirit of the dead,  and we feel sure the people of Ladner should be complimented. Herein hangs a tale. Last Monday evening was band practice, and the boys  feeling the pressure of the call of  duty began to congregate at the  town hall, their place of meeting.  One enthusiast was there before the  others, and began to light the lamps,  believing the hall was all his own.  But, zounds! the peculiar odor of  carbolic prevading the room soon  attracted his attention, and he investigated, when to his horror and  amazement he discovered the last  earthly remains of a dead Indian.  Just then appeared a medical man  who explained the deep mysteries  concerning the presence of the body.  The arrival of the other boys called  for serious consultation, when it was  decided to practice in the open air  that evening. This explains why  the people of Ladner heard such  sweet strains of music last Monday  evening.  "Medicine Man" Dead.  An Indian called Doctor Charley  a "medicine man" from Nootka  Sound, B. C. died very suddenly,  and before medical aid could be  summoned, Monday afternoon at the  Albion cannery 0:1 Westham Island  apparently from causes unknown.  Deceased was about 55 years of age  and had come from his northern  home to engage in the fishing along  the river, and was evidently in  good health.  Dr. Wilson coroner was summoned and accompanied by Dr. Kingleft  at once for the cannery, and had the  body brought to town. The post  mortem showed that he had died  from inflamation of the bowels. The  deceased was buried at Boundary  Bay cemetery on Wednesday.  CORONATION DAY.  An order-in-council was passed  at Ottawa Thursday providing for a  proclamation declaring Saturday,  August oth, Coronation Day,,to be  a public holiday. Coronation Day  will be observed by all Ladner, and  w.e hope some appropriate celebration will be gotten up.  MacAdam's Case.  "British Columbia js less populous than the city of Toronto, and it  is a solemn.fact that .the lawyers,  whom merit or the accident of political favor has exaltjed to the judiciary of that province are in a position to ruin a man's property and  deprive hiin of bis liberty for the  period of twenty-one months.  "Their Lordships the King's Justices for British Columbia have exposed an abuse by their exercise of  a power. There is more law than  liberty in Canada when a man can  be haled before three judges and  committed to prison for twenty-one  months without a chance to plead  to an indictment or without trial by  a jury of his peers. a  "It is essential to the efficiency  of justice that judges should have  power to punish slander. There  should be a limit to thjs power!  The law might leave the judges  with summary power to inflict imprisonment up to three months or a  fine up to $500. An offence which  cannot be adequately punished with  imprisonment for three nionths or a  $500 fine is serious enough to entitle an accused person to the right  of trial by jury,''—-Toronto Telegram.  A Winnipeg-despatch says; Following the example set in Montreal,  Ottawa and Toronto, a fund has  been started here for Editor McAdams of the Sandon Paystreak.  It is headed by ex-Mayor Andrews.  Much sympathy is felt here for McAdams, and the judges' sentence is  regarded as excessively severe and  uncalled for.  McAdams has apologized to the  members of the Supreme court for  his attack on that body, for which  he was committed to jail for nine  months, aud the court has wired to  the minister of justice recommending his release. This recommendation will probably be carried out  in a few days.  Harry Tracy on Deck.  After filling many columns of  space daily in the Puget Sound  press, Harry Tracy appears to have  dropped out of sight of the newspapers quite as literally as he has  passed from the ken ofthe pursuing  police.  Not the slightest clew that is at  all reliable is now in the possession  of the Cudihee sleuths, and for very  obvious reasons the pursuit has been  dropped. After 40 days of fruitless  efforts the outlaw's pursuers find  themselves no nearer his apprehension than ever, and have only to  look back upon a useless investment  of about $20,000, and the killing or  wounding of one or two good men  as incidents of the chase.  The Spokane Spokesman-Review  says: If Harry Tracy, bandit, outlaw and murderer, is killed before  August 28, his body will be placed  on exhibition during the Elks' carnival in Seattle aud may be brought  to Spokane before it is consigned to  mother earth. John Cort, president  ofthe Northwest Threatrical syndicate, has secured a contract, it is  said, with the wife of tbe bandit,  for the privilege of exhibiting the  corpse at "two bits" a peep. There  is big money in it, and it would be  a novel attraction.  mm RAILWAY  The Contract to be Completed on Thursday  of This Week.  A Victoria despatch says: It is  understand that the contract far the  building of the 'Coast-Kootenay  Railway, on .the new proposition  laid: down at the last session of the  House, between Mclean Brothers  of Vancouver and the Government,  has been signed, and is now .practically complete.  The contract was sent to-the East  several weeks ago, for.the signature  of the Lieutenant-Governor, sir  Henri Joly de Lotbiniere, else it  would have been complete some  time ago. Hon. W. C. Wells, Chief  Commissionei of Lands and Works-,  has yet to sign it, and he is expected  in Victoria on Thursday to put his  hand to the document, and finally  complete the contract.  The terms of the contract are familiar, and provide for a cash as  well as a land subsidy for the bundling of the much-talked-of line.  Bicycle Collision,.  Tuesday evening about 8.30  o'clock there was a head 011 collison  along the Slough road near Mr. Mcr  Kee's residence by a number of bicycles. No serious damage.was  done to the riders but one of 'the  wheels was badly smashed,  D. A. and John McK^e were go.-  ing along this road with their wheels  when Mr. and Miss. Whitwqrth pas*  sed on their bicycles and had only  got a few feet ahead when they col?  lided with the Gifford boys who  were coming at high rate of speed  towards them. Mr. Whitworth's  wheel Was struck and both riders  were thrown. Whitworth's wheel  being badly smashed, passing along  one of the other riders collided with  D. A. McKee who was hurled intq  the bush. John McKpe and Miss  Whitworth luckily escaped any  damage. Owing to the darkness.  the riders did not notice each qther  until too late tq get ont of the way.  This is another lesson tq fast riders,  and the fact that no one was hurt is  a miracle.  N. A. McDiarmid, C. M. C, has  moved into town and is occupying  his residence on Stanley street.  The Ladner Cornet Band will play  at Councilor Arthur's home, on the  Slough road, Wednesday evening,  The dominion government has  arranged to establish a mint for  Canada with distinctive Canadian  gold and silver coinage.

IV   ?'J   .  raVT*«  a. fraser;  abscrlptlou Price, per year In udvuuee, jf.i7»»  SATURDAY,    AUGUST  2.,  1QQ2,  The Delta Agricultural Society  will hold its fifeenth animal exhibition on Friday and Saturday, September 26th and   27th.    This years  fair promises to eclipse all others  1  yet held and everyone in the district should do all tbey possibly can  to help the officers ofthe society to  make it the success it deserves. In  the Delta district can be found al-  Vost any variety of grain or veg-  'etable,' which can hold its pwn with  any on'the continent.   There is al-  jf .'v J. ';  so some fine pure bred stock which  we think would be prize winners,  and some are, at the large fairs held  'throughout the dorainion. With  "this alone the Delta society should  be able to produce an exhibition  which would advertise the district  considerably. Besides the attractions of produce, stock, etc., there is  a first-class race track, which could  be put to good'use by having some  first-class races. Horses from all  Over the mainland would willing be  brought to compete in the races,  and the amount put out in prizes  would" be reimbursed by the crowd  who would attend. Excursions  could be run from Westminster and  'Vancouver and if properly advertised a large crowd would be in attendance and swell the gate receipts.  ^The Delta News will do all it possibly can to make the fifteenth an-  'niial exhibition of the Delta Agricultural' Society a success. Will  you?       '   The provincial premiers in London have a very important problem  on their'hands, namely the amendment of the North American Act to  provide for the Dominion returning  *io the provinces a larger proportion  of the federal revenue. The movement will meet with the sympathy  and support of the whole people.  As matters stand the provincial  governments have to bear tbe lion's  ■hare of the exptnditure, while the  "Dominion has by far the greater proportion of the of the revenue. Dominion expenditure is mainly confined  to navigation, the mail services and  defence, though it should also have  all railways in the dominion.  "Meanwhile the provinces have to  provide most of their own railways.  An amendment should be made in  federal terms which would rectify  these anamolies.—Kootenay Mail.  In Ireland the qualifications for a  election of a member" to parliament  is that he must have served a term  in jail. He then becomes a patriot.  "Billy" Mac Adams,' the Sandon  Paystrerk'man, now serving time  £or thinking out loud about judges,  should be dead in it.  .Took It Back. \  The sen-ices on Sunday, June 22,  -,it the annual Adventist camp meeting, at Beebe Plains, Que., were  marked by a stirring incident, which  created considerable excitement,  and finally some amusement among  those who witnessed it. Elder Potter, president of the Adventist Association, of Worcester, Mass., in  the course of his address at the morning service took occasion to attack  Britain in connection with the South  African war. In reply to an interruption, he said he was aware he  was on Canadian soil, and rejoiced  in the oppoptunity of freeing his  mind upon this subject.  The remarks aroused much indignation among his Canadian hearers,  and a public meeting of Beebe Plain  citizens was subsequently helb.when  a resolution was adopted demanding an apology and retraction of the  "insult" to Britain and the flag.  The resolution was as follows:  "That whereas the Rev. Elder  Potter, preaching upon Canadian  soil, and to a largely Canadian audience, grossly insulted His Majesty  and the government of Great Britain  by uncalled for, false and malicious  statements regarding the management of affairs in South Africa, and  whereas such remarks are insulting  to a very large proportion of his audience, it is respectfully requested that  thereverend gentlemen do,this evening, apologize for such statements,  withdraw the same, and express his  regrets at Jiaving given utterance to  such offensive remarks."  This resolution was placed in the  hand3 of Elder Potter and before the  evening service the pulpit was draped with the national colours, and  the Union Jack was placed over head.  Standing beneath its folds, iu the  presence of a 'very hsrge audience,  the reverend gcjntl^men read the resolution, and complied with the demand. He left on the first train for  the United States side of tbe line,  and did not return to the campmeet-  ing.   CHURCH   NOTICES.  BAPTIST.,  Services will be held on Sunday  evening at 7:30. I.

I  The Report >Of The Commissioner-Of Highways  For Ontario.  Broken sto»e, when of suitable  quality and properly applied, is a  more durably surfacing material  than is gravel. Owing to the greater cost, however, it is used by those  townships only which have not a  •upply of grayel. As ordinarily used  broken stone gives Jess satisfaction  than gravel, because the latter binds  quickly under traffic pwing to the  presence of sand and clay. To jet  the best service from broken stone  a road rpller should be used to consolidate |t; otherwise the stones roll  {Loosely for a considerable length of  time, The feeling of councils with  f egard to its use is that it makes a  passable road for a short time in fall  and spring, but that a good dirt for  •ummer nse is spoiled. Townships  Which have only broken stone for  road metal, will receive decided benefit from th« use 'of a steam roller,  which will at once consolidate the  stone and make a thoroughly good  and smooth road for all seasons of  the year.  The different kinds of stones for  macadam roads cannot well be approached from the standpoint of  flames. Granite, limestone, sandstone, are names of different rocks  common in the province of Ontario,  but to say that granite is better than  limestone, or that limestone is better  than sandstone, while true, perhaps,  ofthe best qualities of each, may be  quite ingorreot since a good sand-  Stone may be inflnfeely preferable to  » POOf Mpkfa* <V granite. The  best ftpne for a macadam road is  tha( which is bard and tough, not  easily affected by the atmosphere,  moisture, or the varying conditions  of climate. The choice will generally lie between a cheaper and less  durable stone near at hand, and a  more costly but better stone from a  distance. A great proportion ofthe  macadam roads in Ontario will be  constructed of limestone, since this  rock is the most common, quarries  being within easy access of almost  any part of the province. In quality it ranges from that which is use-  Jess to that which is almost equal to  trap. Limestone, which is tough  and close grained, is an excellent  material for roads on which the  weight of traffic is not excessive.  Some dojomitic limestones, while  hard, appear to lack in toughness.  Other limestones, of a slatey texture  have few Wearing qualities, are rapidly disintegrated on exposure to  atmosphere, and should be avoided.  Some limestones of an open, porous  nature, yield readily in the Ontario  climate to the effects of moisture and  frost, merely turning into mud. But  the excellent binding qualities ol  limestone make up largely for a lack  pf hardness, a sort of cement being  formed by the dust, which adds very  much tO its durability.  In determining the best quality of  ; atone fpr road purposes, there are  four prominent destructive agencies  which have to be considered: (i) The  crushing action of loads; (2) the  grinding action of the wheels; (3) the  blows from the shoes of horses; [4]  climatic influences of air, water and  frost.

The weight of a stone is  usually some indication pf durability in this respect, the lighter stones  being those of less' density, and in  consequence are the less desirable.  There are other'features which a  good rock for road-making should  possess. When crushed they should  break into a compact form. A stone  that, in breaking, takes thin, flaky  shapes, will not wear so long as one  that breaks into cubical pieces, nor  will it consolidate so readily in a  road-bed, for a wheel, in passing  over the side of a flat stone, will  throw it out of place and loosen the  stones adjoining.  The tests usually applied in determining the qualities of stone are  those which indicate crushing  strength; the power to resist impact  and abrasion; the density, determined by the weight ofthe stone; the  amount of water absorbed. While  elaborate trials may be made, a  practical man can judge of the  qualities of a stone by applying  simple tests; by breaking the stones  with the hammer; wearing it on a  grindstone; crushing it in a blacksmith's vice; scratching with an  iron nail; breaking small pieces with  the finger. By such simple means,  a general idea of the stone can  readily be formed, but no test is so  conclusive as actual wear on the  road.  Broken stone produced from  boulders is objected to as road metal  on various grounds. The rounded  sides will not permit consolidation  with the minimum of vacuum. If  they have been exposed to the atmosphere the boulders are very apt  to be decomposed, are soit and will  crumble readily. The mixture of  different kinds of rock on the road  surface, some hard, some soft, permits unequal wear, and produces a  rough surface.  While these are defects which  certainly are not to be overlooked  l;i the choice of a road meatl, boulders, nevertheless, constitute a very  valuable material for the construction of a road, particularly in localities where they are plentiful and  gravel or bed rock not readily  obtainable.  In selecting field boulders, care  should be taken to discard all rock  which shows signs of having  "weathered" or decomposed by the  action of the atmosphere. Sandstones and granites are peculiarly  subject to this disintegration, while  soft limestones are very common.  Rocks which should be condemned  Yom this cause are those which  ?rumble readily under successive  blows of a hammer, or which show  iron stains when broken. A little  experience will quickly teach a  judicious roadman to detect the  •itone which is unfit for road purposes.  FOUND  A Fishing Boat.  Boat marked, "K. T.
