On Wednesday last, the man  Monahan Who is charged with shooting at Arthur Goldsmith at Alder-  grore on the t6th. with intent to  kill, was given a preliminary hearing and sent up for trial. In the  meantime the sanity of the prisoner  will be inquired into.  The dredger, King Edward, who  baa just returned from Ladner, is  to go to Victoria next week to work  (th the James Bay reclamation works.  The delivery boys Oh the local  paper went on strike Wednesday  afternoon because of a fine for de1  facing the building being imposed.  However the strike did hot last long  and Thursday evening went back.  A ctttttigtunent of thoroughbred  Mock for the Delta passed through  this city on Wednesday.  Died at Victoria*  The sad news of the death of  jftobert Kennedy was received in  Ladner last Saturday afternoons  Tbe deceased who has been ailing  fet some months, was taken to  the Jubilee hospital at Victoria a  few week* ago to undergo an operation for appendicitis, but lacking  the strength necessary fat such an  ordeal, he passed away a few days  after the operation. H« was a native of Scotland and sixty years of  •ge, having resided in this province  for a number of years, and at Port  Guichon for the past couple of years.  He leave* ft widow and three young  children to mourn his loss. The  body was shipped direct to Chilliwack, tfhlNhe the funeral took place  last Monday.

No doubt it is yet too soon  to regard his recovery as certain,  but apparently the patient's chances  are far brighter thanj they were two  days ago, when few people had  more than a faint hope of his surviving.  All coronation celebrations have  been postponed and the coronation  of King Edward has been postponed  indefinitely owing to his illness.  On Monday an operation was performed for appendicitis, and since  then the King has been hovering  between life and death, the latest  bulletins becoming more reassuring. The announcement of the  King's illness was like a bolt out of  the blue as despatches up to the last  spoke of nothing but active preparations for the coronation, and the  word of his serious illness caused  world wide regret.  Thoroughbred Stock.  The farmers in the Delta are to be  commended for their fine stock,  Which already ranks among the  best in the province, but here they  do not rest content with this present  high standard, and are making such  additions in the way of improvement from time to time as opportunity affords. The latest of the prizewinners are two sires which arrived  this Week for Reeve W. H. Ladner  from Ontario. They are fine specimens aild will taake a creditable addition to his already fine herd of  cattle. The one is known as Squire  Wimple, light roan, No. 33006, bred  by George BrlstoWe, Rob Roy, Ont.,  calved August 13th, 1899; girth  eight feet four inches; weighed when  shipped at 1026 days old 2200  pounds* The other it is expected  will be equally as good when he  reaches the same age, and is called  Commander, No. 39011, white,  calved February 5th, 1901, bred by  Harry Smith, Hay, Ont. It is  just such stock raisers as Mr. Ladner that are a. credit to the community*  Thesame gentleman who brought  these cattle for Mr. Ladner also  brought a thoroughbred heifer for  H. M. Vasey.  Delta Council.  The Delta Municipal Council met  «n Saturday, June 21st, all the  members being present.  After the minutes of the previous  meeting had been confirmed, communications were received and disposed off as follows:  From J. Oliver, M. P. P., re acquiring Coquitlam water, received  and the reeve was instructed to proceed with application.  From F. B. Peinberton re Canoe  Pass road, received and filed the  clerk to reply.

The round trip will be fifty  cents on the boat and the same on  the train.

The opening of this railway' will  give the people of Delta a good and  quick service to the Terminal City,  and as soon as arrangements are  completed the steamer Transfer will  tie up at Ladner overnight, making  a trip to Steveston in the morning  to connect with the railway, before  continuing on her trip up river,  and again in the evening will meet  passengers about six o'clock to return to Ladner.

PRAS^.  THE DELTA NEWS, SATURDAY, JUNE 28, t*o2.  IJjS  Pleased With Kootenay.  Subscription Price, per year in advance, $!•»  SATURDAY, Jl'NE 28,   I902.  MOUNTAIN VS. RAINWATER  The question is often asked.  "Is the rainwater which the people  of Delta drink healthy?" We  should judge that if it were not for  the careful attention which the  tanks, that contain this water, receive, it would not be healthy, and  no doubt a large amount of sickness  can be traced to the impure water.  But the burning question is, how  can this state of affairs be remedied,  and at a minimum cost to the people. Some years ago we learn that  a joint stock company was in existence, whose object was to supply  the people of the lower Fraser with  water similar to that used by the  people of New Westminster. This  company, so far as we can ascertain,  was to supply the people of Richmond and Delta with water from  Coquitlam lake, through a main  which was to be run down the north  side of the Fraser as far as Brodie's  pannery. One branch pipe to come  across the river for the Delta people,  another was to be continued for the  people of Richmond and Steveston.  This scheme was dropped we believe  owing to tlie funds not being available to comply with the estimates  received, and what promised to at  one time be a blessing to the people  of the Delta fell through. Last fall  the Delta council applied for the  right to secure from two to four  thousand inches of water from  poquitlam Lake. We believe this  right has since been secured. What  do the council intend to do with  the right? It would cost quite a  few thousand dollars to complete  this system, but for this, good, pure  fresh water for household purposes  would be the result, and the people  would be able to point with pride  to a water, works system second to  no other place. We believe the  people have a right to this, and if  money were borrowed and a sinking fund created for the purpose,  the people would be willing to  shoulder the burden. Perhaps the  co-operation with Richmond municipality could be obtained thereby  lessening the expense to Delta.  During the past week parties  have been through the district looking over available water ways with  a view of establishing a water system for the residents of Delta. So  far nothing definite has been done  but the matter is being looked into.  The News would be pleased to  receive communications on this subject and get the views of some of  our residents.  1 ■, ;  • ■■     ■  A Windermere correspondent  writing to a coast paper says:—  Messrs. J. Honeyman and Robt.  McKee, two of Ladner's most prosperous ranchers, have been visiting  here for the last few days. In a  conversation, Mr. Honeyman said:  "I have traveled all over the world,  but have never seen such an ideal  townsite. Your climate is magnificent, and I wonder Windermere is  not more extensively advertised as  a tourist and health resort. I should  judge it would be equal to Kamloops in the latter respect, as you  have the climate of that district,  and the hot springs at Fairmont  would be an ideal spot for a sanitarium and resort for those suffering  from diseases peculiar to a damp  climate such as the coast. We  shall in all probability locate here,  and shall certainly advise our friends  of the brilliant prospects of this  district."    '  Mr. McKee, who is a pioneer of  the Delta, having come over from  "Erin's Isle" iu '62, spoke in a  similar strain.  Fishermen Meet.  An American statistician has  figured out that Great Britain has  -spent $8,500,000,000 in carrying on  wars since 1700,    The first of the  ^ l • t  wars in the eighteenth century was  -1. ■ ■ ..  against the French, with  Holland,  Prussia and Portugal as allies.  The public debt ofthe United Kingdom is now $,390, or  about $85 per head of the population, while the annual interest  charge is $99,170,245, or about  $1.10 per capita.  The Westminster Branch No 1  of the British Columbia Fishermen's  Union held a special meeting in the  Eagles Hall, Columbia street, on  Saturday afternoon. Delegates  from all parts of the river were present, and the chief theme of discussion w:j,s the price of sockeyes for  the coming season. Although no  statement was made for publication,  it is understood that two proposals  were before the meeting, one to  make a set price throughout the  season, and the other a sliding  scale proposed by the cauners.  The latter proposal was not really  considered, as the fishermen were  almost unanimous in favor of the  set price.  This price was the subject of  much discussion. The majority  seemed in favor of accepting a price  between 12 1-2 and 15 cents per fish  throughout the season. The ques  tion was discussed for about four  hours, but no decision was reached  and the price will doubtless be set  by the Grand Lodge at their sessioi  here today.  Cloverdale Notes-  A return match with the Langley  football team will be played here on  Thursday, coronation day. The  game last Saturday which resulted  in a score of three to one in favor of  the Cloverdale's has put the  Langleyites on their mettle and a  hot game is expected, when they  will try to reverse the score.  Miss Grace Armstrong went up  to Westminster last week and writing on the entrance examination.  Coronation Day will be celebrated  here by a grand union school picnic.  Great preparations have been made  and old and young will enjoy themselves.  A very successful strawberry and  ice cream social, by the Ladies' Aid  of the Presbyterian church was held  in the oddfellows hall last Friday  evening. A first class short pro  gram was disposed off, Rev. Mr.  McPherson acted as chairman.  Everybody attending was well satisfied with the affair and only wish  these social gatherings would occur  aftener.  Mrs. and Miss Myers Gray of the  Royal City have been visitors at  the home of Mrs. Milton's for the  past week.

A.  Ruddick of tht Agricultural Department  FOR THE CREAMERY OWNERS.  1. Provide a supply of good, pure  water for the purposes ofthe creamery.  2. Provide efficient drainage to  prevent the slops and waste water  from becoming a nuisance and possibly contaminating the products of  the, creamery.  3. Where skimmilk is returned to  the patrons, arrange the skim milk  tank so that it may be easily cleaned,  and then insist on it being kept  clean.  4. Support your buttermaker in  dealing firmly with patrons who  bring milk which is not in good  condition.  FOR THE BUTTERMAKER.  1. Attend personally to the taking in ofthe milk as far as possible.  2. Keek your weighing stand  and everything thereon, including  your own person, thoroughly clean.  You have no right to require the  patrons to furnish clean milk unless  you set a good example.  FOR THE   PATRONS.  1. Only milk from cows in good  health should be sent to the creamery.  2. Milk from a freshly calved cow  should not be sent till after the  eighth milking.  , 3. Pure water should be provided  for the cows, and cows should be  prohibited from drinking stagnant,  impure water.  4. A box or trough, containing  *alt to which the cows have free  access, should always be provided.  5. Cows should never be driven  fast, and it pays to treat them with  invariable kindness.  6. It pays to make cows comfortable under all conditions.  7. All vessels used in the handling of milk should be thoroughly  cleaned immediately after their use.  A washing in tipid water to which  a little soda has been added, and a  subsequent scalding with boiling  water, will prepare them for airing,  that they/-may remain perfectly  sweet, ' A brush is preferable to a  dish-cloth for use in cleaning.  They should be protected from dust  which always carries large numbers  of the bad forms of bacteria.  8. Cows should be milked with  dry hands, and only after the udders  have been washed or brushed clean.  9. Tin pails only should be used,  to. All milk should be strained  immediately after it is drawn.  11. Milking should be done, and  milk should be kept only in a place  where the surrounding air is pure.  Otherwise the presence of the tainting germs and odours will injure  the milk.  12. All milk should be aired immediately after it has been strained.  That treatment is equally beneficial  -to the evening and morning messes  of milk.  13. In warm weather all milk  should be cooled to a temperature  of 60 degrees Fahr. or lower.  14. Milk-stands should be con  .str.ucted to shade the cans or vessels  containing milk, as well as to protect them from rain. Swine should  not be fed hear the milk stand.  About Dr. Grant.  Talent, which is published monthly in the World building, New  York, contains the following regarding a prominent Vancouver divine:  "Dr. B. A. Green, one of the keenest thinkers of Chicago, writes a  penpicture of the well known lecturer Dr. Roland D. Grant. He  says in a letter |o a friend, 'I should  like to have heard 'pn Grant in  Trepipnt TenK%(    pe has to sfcand  hi .front -of an audience to let his  kingly -self stand forth. There he  is so challenged by a sea of faces  that his whole active force leaps to  the front and the reserves are near  enough to be felt. He is calm in  the midst of a storm of thinking.  He dares to wait a moment to sharpen a phrase to a razor edge. He  packs mental stuff into condensed  sentences. The condensation is not  bailed hay or cotton, but something  useful when unpacked and used in  the after quiet. It is a storage of  electricity; then and there it thrills  and works. When he is tender he  can cut camoe. He has the swift-  stroke power, the sketchy vividness  of flashes. He knows where the  heart beats. And that voice of his,  is it magnetic or hypnotic? Fairies  carved away at his epiglottis and  dug out cavernous spaces to give  that resonance which women like  to hear—and men too. Afterwards  to think of him brings flashes of  memory pictures."

Tennyson could take a compara  tively worthless scrap of paper write  a poem on it and  make it worth  $5,000—That's genius.  Vanderbilt can write a few words  on a sheet of paper and make it  Worth $10,000,000—That's capital  A mechanic can take  a  raw ma  terial worth $5 and carve it up into  ornaments worth $500—That's skill.  Your wife can buy a cloak for $15  but prefers one at $50—That's natural.  We can write our check for $300, -  000 b-b-but the bank wont cash it.  —That's rough.  The " New Art Bell "Pianos contain the " patent illimitable double  repeating action." The "full metal plate " combined with the "new  improved bushed tuning pins."—  That's progressiveness and up-to-  date.  With a "New Art" Bell Piano  and for the small amount of $25 additional you can have in your home  a harp, a mandolin, a banjo, a  guitar, a bag pipe; a music box and  1 o other musical instruments amounting to several thousands of dollars  if purchased separately.—That's the  "orchestra} attachment', to be had  only in the "New Art" Bell Pianos.  If you do not buy a " New Art"  Bell Piano—the strongest built, the  sweetest toned, and the leading  piano manufactured under the British flag, and sold for less than inferior pianos by agents and other  dealers—Well, well, we must say  that's a blunder.  We will, offer two carloads of  standard pianos including a number  of Bells that we purchased for spot  cash while east last May. Pianos  that had been in branch stores and  returned to the factory when these  stores were closed up. They are  new and can be sold, at wholesale  prices—That's your good fortune.  W. W.
